Digitakt - Expand your setup with an iPad and Beatmaker 3!

Published on Nov 26, 2019 Electronisounds Audio


I'm showing *exactly* how to connect an Elektron Digitakt to an iPad so we can sync it with the iPad and send MIDI into the iPad to an app such as Beatmaker 3.

The options are pretty much limitless as to how you could use these 2 devices together.

This is *one* really great option of how you could use them together.

Whatever kind of music you are making - KEEP IT UP, Friends!

Don't stop making *YOUR MUSIC*!!"

Cwejman S-1 MK2 White SN 19-004

via this auction

"Cwejman synthesizers are some of the finest analog synths out there with a great attention to detail and quality. If you are viewing this you probably already know all of that! Cwejman products are hand built, making for long wait times associated with their direct purchase. The S-1 is a 3 oscillator semi modular monosynth with built in MIDI to cv, two filters, and loads of other circuits to open up the sound creation experience greatly. It is rack mountable or desktop friendly.

This unit is in excellent condition with little wear and works perfectly. It includes the original box and power cable. The serial number is 19-004."

"First time I am trying the six voice paraphonic (3 analog and 3 digital oscillators + noise) mode of DREADBOX POLYEND MEDUSA. Instead of the POLYEND section I use ARTURIA KEYSTEP for the live jam that I totally forgot to mention in the credits. Sorry!

Phil's Rev2 Jam-torials: So I got a Prophet 6... It's a Groovebox now :D

Published on Nov 24, 2019 Phil's Rev2 Jam-torials

"One take, no external FX or mixing. Just a recorded P6 with internal effects and patch switching. This trick uses a bank of drum sounds I sequenced. When the sequencer is running and you change a patch, it jumps right to that new patch! This is BIG. I have more exploring to do.

I was almost worried the P6 wouldn't get as "Weird" as my Rev2 would.

No need to worry, there is so much more to this machine than typical bread and butter. I'll be diving in as I learn this new machine.

Thoughts on the Rev2: I sold it a few months ago to fund a semester back at college. I still miss the hell out of it but I had the chance to get a P6 at a really good deal. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. Having always wanted to experience it for myself, I accepted.

Stay tuned for some deeper dives beneath the surface of the P6."

Despite of its slim form factor, DOT has 3 channels of patterns on a board and can be extended with additional DOTs, that can be chained together.

General features:

3 channels trigger sequencer in 6 hp

euclidian pattern generators and XOX step programing

real time manual recording

3 routable bi-polar cv inputs

ability to save and load patterns

ADDAC215 Dual S&H+ Basic Introduction

Published on Nov 27, 2019 ADDAC System

You can find details on the ADDAC215 here.

"This new module should not be judged by it’s size, at 6hp it’s packed with features.

At it’s core it features a noise source and two precision Sample & Holds with 0.01% of maximum deviation from the Input which allows for quantized signals to be sent through without any noticeable detuning or the typical voltage drops over time.

The Sample & Hold sections can also be used as a Track & Hold meaning it holds the incoming input while the Trigger input is ON and lets the input flow to the output when the Trigger input is OFF.
Each section also features it’s own slew processor with a single control over attack and decay and an ON/OFF switch.

The noise signal is normalled to both sections inputs, meaning that without a jack plugged into the Input the sample and hold function will act upon the incoming noise signal generating random CV values.

The [Trigger A Alternate] switch allows to Link both sections so that any trigger input in Trigger A will alternate between triggering the A and B section.

Besides each section outputs there’s also 4 extra outputs: Noise, Difference, Average and Sum. The [Noise] output is coming from the noise source, the [Difference] output is the subtraction of section A minus section B, the [Average] output is the sum of both A plus B and then divided by 2 and finally the [Sum] output is the sum of both A plus B sections.

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

Custom Moog Model 12 Vintage Modular Synthesizer w/ SNs 1016 & 7589

via this auction

"This is from an estate sale, on consignment in our store. It is a Moog Model 12 custom build. 1 owner. We do not have the lids. It works, and comes with a keyboard. We are not experts on these older synths but it does turn on and we were able to play some basic patches with it...however, it will need serviced in order to be at it's best. These machines are old and rare and this one is in very good condition cosmetically. Once it is serviced fully, this will be an awesome piece of history and a mammoth sounding all analog synth. Please feel free to ask questions. I will be doing a bit more research myself and will keep this listing updated."

"In this video we explore the new A-111-6 module from Doepfer. A complete synthesizer in only 10hp. This module offers more than you might expect - with its complex routing you are able to mix and match three different waveforms and a sub-oscillator, you can add an external input and of course do PWM and FM. You can use the filter as a sine wave VCO and switch the envelope from AD to ADSR to AR and so on.
And it is also available as a vintage edition in black."
