Free Yamaha CS80 synth emulation - Arminator 2 VST plugin


Published on Nov 20, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"Grey day vibes from Arminator 2, a VST synth plugin that pays tribute to the iconic bucket list synthesizer that is the Yamaha CS80. Nearly all the electronic sounds (except for a background CS80 sample appearing in the segment between 2:55 - 4:00) come from this free plugin developed by Krakli (a one-man development team in the shape of Ian Webster) on SynthEdit.

Music by: Alpicat / Synth & Sundry
Alpicat YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1pk...
Video shot on Canon EOS 700D and iPhone SE with Hyperlapse app
You can download the VST plugin here:
http://www.krakliplugins.com/Plugins....

Currently, the plugin is PC only and only available in 32-bit flavor which means that if you are using a 64-bit DAW or VST host you will need some sort of bridging solution so that it can work on your computer. This was composed on Ableton Live with a 32-bit VST bridge to host the plugin on a PC.

Ian is hoping to create 64-bit and Mac compatible versions of his plugins at some point in the future. He also runs his own YouTube channel where he demonstrates some of his other plugins:

KORG VOLCA BASS vs. VOLCA NUBASS // COMPARISON // + UNO Drum


Published on Nov 20, 2019 LESINDES

"KORG VOLCA BASS and KORG VOLCA NUBASS -- so how do they compare?

This video is dedicated to the 2 machines. They're playing the same pattern -- due to the higher bass note and the sub and its massive tube distorsion NUBASS is a bit more assertive and therefore the level of BASS is lifted for 1 dB.

In order to make it more realistic I had it accompanied by fabulous ik multimedia UNO DRUM."

Vintage Optigan Light Organ LOT - Many Original Discs SEALED + Song Books RARE


via this auction

Gay 90s Songs in there!

"This is an amazing opportunity to own a fantastic lot of rare, original Optigan discs & song books - all from the early 1970's.

This lot is 25 pieces in total -

12 discs & 13 books.

9 of the discs are in mint condition, STILL SEALED in the original factory shrinkwrap.

(The shrinkwrap of one of the sealed discs has been torn, but the side where the sleeve opens remains intact)

2 of the discs ("Bossa Nova" & "Easy Does it wth Vibes") are opened & appear to be in fantastic condition. The only flaw I could see is a tiny indentation on one of the discs.

There's also another disc (not pictured) that I found in my vinyl collection & am including in this lot. It's in a clear sleeve & appears to be in excellent condition.

The songbooks vary from good to excellent used condition, some yellowing, shelf wear, & a few have minor pen/pencil marks."

I've been waiting for Retrosound's next video to share the following sent my way via Soviet Space Child. I'm not on Instagram myself, so I missed it. The cover above "Steppin' Out" is just a nice coincidence. :)

View this post on Instagram

The Story behind RetroSound: Most of you know my synthesizers, but very little about the person behind them, today there are some personal sentences from me. I grew up in the former GDR. Until I was 18 years old, I only knew synthesizers from the western tv. As teenager, I heard the music of Depeche Mode, Human League, Yazoo, Pink Floyd and Genesis. But the soundscapes of Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre also found their way into my ear. The first synthesizer sounds I probably perceived while secretly listening to the ELO album from my dad. As kid and teenager, I always dream of a bunch of synthesizers like my musical heroes did. There were no pictures of Playboy on my wall, like some of my age, but badly copied photographs of synths from western tv. I knew that it would only be a dream, because there was no legal way to leave the GDR. And I did not want to leave her either. Everything changed in 1989 and what nobody could ever expect became reality. Suddenly the objects of desire moved within range, but the necessary money was missing. It was not until 1998 that I bought my first synthesizer from my long and hard saved money. It was the Clavia Nord Modular. I plunged madly on the device and programmed sounds day and night. Then Clavia became aware of me in Sweden and so one thing came to another. From then on, countless of my sounds were found among the Nord Modular / Micro Modular factory sounds. That motivated me to do more. Then the Roland Juno-60 came into the house, my dream synth of the 80s and still my favorite. I had not much money, so I bought old synthesizers and restored them. Well at some point I had realized my childhood dream yet. Today I work as a freelance sound designer for UVI. I compose soundscapes for documentary films and advise musicians all over the world. And maybe some of you know my RetroSound Vintage Synthesizer Channel on YouTube. Since 2007 with demo tracks, sounds. What happened exactly 30 years ago has taken my whole life in a completely different direction. I'm very happy about that. 🙌 . #mauerfall #30jahremauerfall #neunternovember #DDR #wiedervereinigung #retrosound #synth #synthesizer #GDR #germany #1989 #mauerfall30

Introducing the ADDAC105 4 Voice Cluster - First Audio Preview


Published on Nov 20, 2019 ADDAC System


"Following our ADDAC103 T-Networks this new module is inspired by it’s simplicity. This is a 4 voice Square Oscillator with VCA, FM switch and a slew decay for the incoming Trigger IN. All voices are then sent through a Multimode Filter.

Each voice has it’s own VCA input where any input is accepted (Trigger, Gate, CV) The [DECAY] controls the slew decay applied to the incoming signal, if [DECAY] is fully anti-clockwise then it works as a Mute. The [FM ON] switches activate/deactivate the FM input coming from the previous voice: Voice 1 FM comes from voice 4, voice 2 FM comes from voice 1, and so on, so you can FM all of them in a FM loop.

All 4 voices are summed and sent through a filter with controls over [CUTOFF] with an Attenuverter for the CV input and [RESO- NANCE]. Three filter outputs are provided [LOWPASS], [BANDPASS] and [HIGHPASS]

The [EXTERNAL IN] input can be routed through a jumper on the back of the module allowing the incoming signal to go to:
1. the filter input for processing an external audio source.
2. all of the 4 voices Frequency control allowing for some experi- mental CV control over pitch of all 4 voices at the same time (due to the specificities of the circuit and to keep the module at a low price these inputs are not callibrated to 1v/octave).

This module will also be available as a full DIY kit.

Vtg Hammond NOVACHORD, The RAREST Polyphonic Tube Synthesizer / Organ No 260 (?)


via this auction

I almost skipped posting this one due to the condition, but reader Joe Klaw spotted it and sent it in. You don't see these often. If you don't know what a Novachord is, see here for additional posts.

via the listing: "Cosmetic wise the Amps are in Excellent Shape. I have no way to test them.
On November 20, 2019 I add the following about the amplifiers ("It appears that one of the 4A7 tubes (or whatever the number is) is missing from one of the amplifiers, I will look around here to see if I can find it. For now consider it to be missing and bid accordingly."

The exterior of the galleys show rust as seen in pics. The Inside of the the galleys are much nicer. The underside of the galleys appear excellent. There has been no "leakage" of the electronics anywhere as far as I can see. The cabinet was "Antiqued" when I got it. Much of that on the top flat surfaces is gone and it is down to the raw wood, so refinishing would not be as difficult as when I first got it....

Top of the cabinet is rough, but it is all there though some of the thinner sections have come unglued I saved everything so it could be rebuilt, It came apart as I tried to lift the lid off to view the cabinet electronics. The base appears to be sound though the legs are showing come cracks at their longitudinal glue joints. One Foot is damaged as seen in the picture.

Both Jensen Speakers are there, but the cones are of course gone.

Black and White Keys all have good "action" and "ping" nicely. I did not try to operate any of the console levers.

It's all here, just ready for some serious TLC.

Labels that were on the backside of the top cabinet are rough.
I could not find the Plate with the serial number. I am guessing it is 260 because that number is stamped on the inside right side of the cabinet. I remember last time I moved it I took photos and had pics of the plate but that camera is long gone.

I have owned it about 20 years and bought it at a local estate auction."

Monsoon (uBurst+) Mutable Instruments Clouds Eurorack Synth Module (Off-White)


via this auction

You can find a demo featuring Monsoon here.

"Monsoon is a Mutable Instruments Clouds redesign that allows for CV and slide potentiometer control of all four effects parameters. LEDs on each slider serve as a visual indicator of each parameter's respective CV input. The module is 12 HP.

This module is professionally built and extensively tested by an electronics engineer with over ten years of experience.

The panel on this module is manufactured by Magpie Modular, makers of some of the highest quality panels in Eurorack. It is off-white aluminum with a beautiful textured finish. The off-white panel looks particularly nice in a rack that has many silver paneled modules.

Includes factory Clouds/Monsoon firmware by default, but I can flash Parasite firmware by request.

The Monsoon comes with a one-year warranty, and ships promptly with a Eurorack power cable and some bonus treats included."

From the website:

What is Acoustic Modelling Synthesis?

Putting theory into practice is Technics' latest breakthrough in synthesis technology - Acoustic Modelling Synthesis. While retaining the much-coveted qualities of conventional PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) subtractive sound reproduction, Acoustic Modelling Synthesis combines PCM waveform drivers with custom DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Modelling resonators.

By first extensively analyzing the nature of acoustic sound, Acoustic Modelling Synthesis then digitizes the physical process recreating it. This technology ideally simulates the sound-emulating process of acoustic instruments.

Nearly all modelling parameters can be accessed in real-time by using various on-board controllers and key touch. Additionally, by manipulating the Realtime Creator / Controller along the X-Y axis, the user can control up to six parameter sets registered for each sound.

This flexibility allows the control, for example, of where you strike the surface of a drum or of the mouthpiece angle on a flute.

ECHOZ, ZVERB, Z5000 Tiptop Audio Multi Effects Modules


Published on Nov 20, 2019 Tiptop .Audio

"ZVERB, ECHOZ and the Z5000 are powerful stereo DSP effects modules in a compact 8HP panel. Although only 8HP in size, all controls are immediately available with clear labeling, making them quick, comfortable and easy to use. Each button accesses a bank of different effects types for up to 24 effects per module.

These effects are a blend of newly developed programs and ones carefully selected from Tiptop’s library of hundreds of effects created over 10 years for the classic Z-DSP processor module. While the effects algorithms play a major role in making these modules sound impressive, an internal analog clock circuitry drives the DSP chip adds to the lush and warm audio processing. With ZVERB, ECHOZ and the Z5000, Tiptop Audio effects have never been so accessible."

Note, this is the first post to feature the ZVERB.




"ZVERB is a collection of all new reverb algorithms developed by Tiptop ranging from typical reverbs to more complex effects that combine delay and pitch shifting with reverb. The effects are grouped by decades based on either the era an algorithm was introduced or the time when the effect was most popular. This variety of reverbs covers small to epic size spaces with the addition of shimmering, feedback tunneled pitch shifting, tape delay drivers, gated reverbs and a lot more. Analog clocking of the DSP chip and CV over the parameters enables even more experimentation. This is a collection inspired by the best from the past right at your fingertips."

The ZVERB is also available in black.

Nervy jam with Moog Matriarch, Arturia DrumBrute Impact, Elektron Octatrack MkII, Eventide Space


Published on Nov 20, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by some crevice of my brain that stores all the weird dark 80s music of my youth. I set up my new Matriarch just to ensure it was in ship-shape, and ended up getting lost in this weird twisty sequence. The DrumBrute Impact proved the perfect complement to the bass line, and the Octatrack handled quadruple duties as drum processor, ambience, melody, and master-level compressor. All in all, a superb setup that was super friendly to performance.

Moog Matriarch + Eventide Space — Bass monster
Arturia DrumBrute Impact — Drums
Elektron Octatrack MkII — Audio processing (four inputs from the DrumBrute Impact), track effects, samples, melody, master-level compression

Written and performed within a 4-hour period, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master.

Patterning 2 - Loop Pages


Published on Nov 19, 2019 Olympia Noise Co.

"Loop Pages is a new feature in PATTERNING 2 version 2.2

Loop Pages allow you to break longer loops into multiple pages for editing. If you’ve ever tried working on a loop that was 64 steps long and thought “my fingers are too big for this, and my eyes are too small” then this feature is for you. By default, loops are broken into pages of 16 steps, but can be adjusted individually or across an entire song. In addition to making editing easier, this new feature has allowed us to increase the maximum loop length to 512 steps, up from 64.
