```````She's Leaving Home Modular Synth Cover ````````` Rings, Plaits, Elements, STO, Clouds

Published on Nov 14, 2019 Glownely Glow-Lonely

"This is a Modular Synth Performance of The Beatles' song She's Leaving Home.
The voices are Rings, Plaits, Elements, and STO through ripples.
Hermod is the brain, but I'm sending it midi from Ableton.
Space is provided by 2hp reverb, Clouds, and Morphagene.


This wins for post of the day. Great synth dog.

00:58 - Burst Mode

The Intellijel Quadrax consists of four independent, CV-controllable channels, each of which can be configured to perform any one of the following functions:

an AD (Attack, Decay) envelope
an AHR (Attack, Hold, Release) envelope
a cycling envelope (resulting in a unipolar LFO)
a pulse burst generator (Finite repeated functions that ascend or descend in amplitude)
a morphing, bipolar beat syncable LFO
The envelopes all feature a continuously variable response curve, ranging from logarithmic through linear to exponential, and each stage can be as snappy as 0.3 ms to as lengthy as 20 seconds.

When set to Burst mode, the channel generates a rising or falling burst of pulses, with full control over the length of the pulse burst, the number and shape of the bursts within it, and whether the bursts increase or decrease in amplitude over the burst.

AD, AHR, Cycling and Burst modes all feature a user-selectable maximum output level of either 5V or 10V.

LFO mode offers control over the frequency and waveshape, while providing a unique morphing feature that creates numerous variations of the selected waveshape. LFOs can be either free-running or beat-synchronized using the channel’s TRIG input.

Channels can be chained together to create complex multi-stage envelopes, with each channel triggered by the previous channel’s trigger input, end-of-rise, or end-of-fall. This enables multiple function generators to fire simultaneously, or it enables the creation of complex multi-stage envelopes by allowing the linked function to fire either at the end of the previous function’s rise time, or at the end of its fall time.

Four freely-assignable, step-attenuverted CV inputs are capable of modulating any or all of the various parameters across all four channels using the built-in CV matrix, and built-in attenuversion for each assignment.

Quadrax remembers its current state (Mode and CV assignments, channel links, etc) and retains that state even if power is removed, meaning Quadrax will always turn on in exactly the same state as you last left it.

Use the optional Qx module to add individual outputs for each channel’s End-of-Rise and End-of-Fall triggers."

The Quadrax made its first appearance in this previous post.

Vintage Simmons Clap Trap Analog Handclap Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is the first iteration of the Simmons Clap Trap after Dave Simmons left MusicAid to form Simmons Drums. These were produced from 1981 to 1984 when the company replaced this model with the digital version.

It's fully working, and has been gone through. Sometimes when you turn off the Auto Trigger by hitting the Manual Trigger button the unit won't flip back to Auto Trigger. But, you can just power off and back on and it will start in Auto Trigger mode.

Cosmetically, it's in very good shape for its age with only a few light scuffs (see photos). Also, the Master Volume slider top is broken off, but it functions perfectly."

Behringer RD-8 Analog Drum Machine With SH-1 + Waza Craft Pedals

Published on Nov 14, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"In this video, we explore Behringer's new RD-8 Rhythm Designer and MS-1 monosynth: two modern instruments inspired by one of the most classic pairings in electronic dance music history.

The Behringer RD-8 provides the sound and workflow of one of the most iconic drum machines of all time—with additional features and a pricetag that makes it perfect for modern workflows. It updates this classic machine with an analog filter, wave designer, and advanced sequencer with performable beat repeat functions and more. In this video we also experiment processing the RD-8's kick drum direct output through the Boss Waza Craft Metal Zone MT-2W, adding a bit of edge and forcefulness to its already thunderous low end.

The MS-1 is a modern interpretation of yet another classic analog instrument: a monophonic synthesizer with integrated sequencer and a huge, rubbery sound. Here, we process the MS-1 through a Boss DM-2W Waza Craft Delay pedal for some extra space."

Akai AX60

via this auction

"Fantastic, underrated analog poly from the 1980s. This is a real sleeper -- beautiful filter for pads and vintage sounding brass with tons of character. And, just like the beloved Roland Juno 60, it has a fantastic arpeggiator which can be synced to clock. If you're looking for a Juno 60 but not excited about spending 2800$, this might be exactly what you're looking for!

Condition wise: cosmetically, it's in fantastic shape. Playability wise: equally fantastic shape. All keys work, all voices are perfect and bulletproofly stable. Master volume knob is scratchy, but otherwise I see no issues -- this is ready for studio work!"

Snippets of Lumina controlling 208C on first test session.

"Putting the 208C 208MIDI daughtercard through it's paces just after getting the program. Rough cuts, but shareable enough for those interested in the possibilities (Timbre on blue mallet, mod amount on yellow mallet, red and green mallet notes add to pitch of the two oscillators that are played by the blue and yellow mallets that are acting as keyboard input.)"

Grendel RA-99 Grenadier Sounds

Published on Nov 14, 2019 EA78751

Also see: Grendel RA-99 Grenadier + 2TAC Sequencer

"Grendel RA-99 Grenadier is in production! More details coming soon at This is an audio demo with nasty bass drums, growling arpeggios, and wobbly formant synthesis tones. It’s a dry recording with no FX. RA-99 Grenadier is a true analog synthesizer with 14 sound parameters controlled by rotary knobs and 6 pushbuttons. It has a 20-point patch bay that greatly expands your options for creative CV, gate, and audio signal routing. This is a one-oscillator monosynth with VC waveshape, subharmonic generator, plus a pink noise source. Its accurate and FM-able VCO has 2x 1V/oct inputs, a 5V/oct input thats great for octave trills, plus a 15V/oct input for vibrato and narrow pitch bending. The RA-99 filter bank has 3 VCFs in parallel, tunable with its Alpha, Beta, and Filter parameters for a wide range of tones including vowels and vocal-like sounds. Its modulation section can be configured as 2x envelope , 2x LFO, or one of each. The envelopes can be either Decay or Attack-Release and have bipolar depth. As LFOs, they have variable symmetry and can act as frequency divider or stair-step voltage sources. The synthesizer is housed in a tough anodized aluminum case and features protective hand grips just like the original Grendel RA-9 Grenadier. Manufactured by Rare Waves (Texas). Thanks for checking us out!"
