Prophet 6 Tutorial - Modwheel to Filter & Bandpass

Published on Dec 13, 2019 philmakesnoise

Vermona style white knobs.

"Before I got the P6 I was almost worried I'd lose those sweet modwheel filter sweeps. I was pretty happy to find they can be easily set up.

This isn't really super deep but I've seen people complain and claim the P6 lacked this feature. This works well enough for my purposes! I take things on a patch by patch basis and its nice to know I can program this in on occasion.

(Not to mention all of the other cool destinations you can link to the mod-wheel with this trick. PWM, OSC freq, and FM via OSC2 freq combined with polymod!)"

Synth Magic Vermon (Vermona Synth)

Published on Dec 13, 2019 Synth Magic

" (For Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher - Not for the free Kontakt player). Video demo of Vermon by Synth Magic. Based on the rare Vermona Piano Strings synth. We sampled our vermona synth and also created a custom set of samples by heavily processing the samples. We also created a user interface that went way beyond what the original hardware can do, so it is no longer just a piano and string synth. Listen to the audio demos to hear the type of sounds Vermon can create. Vermon comes with 150 presets."

Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar Rare Early Model 1983 SN 0136

via this auction

"This unit is somewhere between 'Excellent' and 'Mint', but we tend to be on the conservative side with our synths and will call it 'Excellent.' It is fully functional and appears to be hardly used. The buttons are crisp and all of the knobs feel brand new without any scratchiness. Our technicians have gone over this unit but didn't have to do much. This is a true closet classic collector/museum piece.

Our technicians date this unit to early 1983. It is written on the bottom wood panel, 'SN013G' or 'SN0136' (likely SN0136; pictured here). This early version looks different than later versions, where the MIDI 'IN' 'OUT' and 'THRU' are actually silkscreened into the plastic, whereas this unit has a sticker on top of the plastic."

Five12 Vector Sequencer (It's Like Having Numerology in Eurorack)

Published on Dec 13, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Based on the popular plugin Numerology, the Five12 Vector Sequencer is a unique take on Eurorack sequencing—balancing easy access to specific rhythms and melodies with complex generative behavior.

In this video, we use a small Eurorack system comprised of only an Erica Synths Bassline, Mutable Instrument Plaits, and Make Noise Mimeophon. By controlling these with the Vector Sequencer, we create everything from minimalistic grooves to interlocking melodic patterns and ratcheting rhythms.

Vector Sequencer available here:" for the rest.

Suit & Tie Guy vs Oliver's Pizza - Thanksgiving Eve 2019 (Juggable Offense video)

Published on Dec 13, 2019 suitandtieguy

"Every year I play a Thanksgiving Eve gig at a pizza parlor here in Peoria IL called Oliver's. The location has changed but the gig continues.

This year STG Soundlabs' Minister of Hype Bubba Ayoub did video art with me. Tonight he recorded something similar to his art that night, here is the result. [he uses camera feedback, a Vidiot, a eurorack system, and a couple of video mixers to do this.]

This is only the first set. If you think I should upload the rest of the gig to Bandcamp let me know in the comments. Also let us know if you like this kind of video. Thank you.

Spotted #5 on discchord. Decided to make a playlist with the 6 to date. There's some SH-01a in here as well. If you are seeing this post off the homepage you might want to expand the post (click the "Click More" more link below) for the descriptions and patch notes before starting the player.


1. Sequence #1 // 0-Coast, Specular Tempus, Fugue Machine
I came up with this nice patch while jamming with my 0-Coast and decided to record a little sequence with it. I'm feeding midi data from Fugue Machine and Rozeta Arpeggio on my iPad, and recording the audio from the 0-Coast, through the Specular Tempus, directly in AUM. There is an additional delay send effect on the track.

Roland Promars Compuphonic | The Red Planet

Published on Dec 13, 2019 Alex Ball

"A musical demo of the Roland Promars Compuphonic from 1978.

This guy accompanied the release of the Jupiter-4 and is basically its monophonic sibling, although it has some differences.

The Promars has a “dual VCO” and it works as follows: The master VCO has sawtooth, square, variable pulse, sub oscillator and separate white noise. There is a second VCO (which also has its own sub oscillator) which is slaved to the waveshape and modulation of the master VCO, but can be tuned independently.

There’s a switch to the bottom right of the instrument that flicks between'“A-Tune, off and B-Tune' for VCO 2. These are two manual tuning settings for the second oscillator and a mute in case you just want one VCO. An example would be tuning the second oscillator up an octave and turning on the sub oscillator which would give you three octaves of a note with the middle note being duplicated. You can also create some very cool detuned sounds that really reminded me of the Prodigy (listen the pitch-bent lead line in the verse sections of my track).

There’s the usual Roland resonant low-pass / basic high-pass combination and then two envelopes (one is invertible), which makes the Promars more flexible than the Roland SH synths of the era. You can overload the VCA for drive too, which is a welcome feature.

The LFO is excellent on the Promars with a very wide frequency range. There’s four waveshapes available: sine, square, sawtooth and inverted sawtooth.

There’s also the familiar performance section to the bottom left of the synth which can be used to modulate VCO, VCF and VCA with bender or LFO. Portamento is found in this section as well as a “hold” switch that sustains a note indefinitely. I used this in the breakdown section where Carl Sagan joins us.

The “Compuphonic” name refers to the fact that it has eight memory slots. There’s also ten pretty terrible presets available, but they have their charms.

On the rear it has mono output, headphone output, CV/Gate in and out and external control of the bender if you wish to connect a foot pedal.

I created as many sounds as possible on the Promars including most of the drums with the exception of the hi-hats, cymbals and claps that came from the TR-606 and TR-808 respectively. I also made a subby kick on the Promars and then layered a filtered kick from the TR-707 to add a click to it in certain sections.

In the chorus section of my track I tuned the VCOs in intervals for some stacked chords. One pass was tuned in 5ths, the next in 4ths, the next a major 3rd and the next a minor 3rd. You have to be careful about what you’re playing in each part, but you get some interesting chord voicings and interactions that you wouldn’t be able to play on a poly in the normal manner.

It’s only the second time I’ve played a Promars and it’s a really cool synth and it certainly looks the part!

Sounds used:
Roland Promars Compuphonic (1978)
Roland Juno-6 (1982) into Seekers Voice Spectra Vocoder
Roland TR-606 (1981)
Roland TR-808 clap sample (1980)
Roland TR-707 (1984)

Thanks for watching."

Threetom Modular - Steve’s MS-22 dual VCF Released

This is a follow-up to this post where you'll find another demo.

"Today, ThreeTom Modular is releasing its 'Steve’s MS-22 dual VCF' module for eurorack.

The MS-22 is a dual voltage controlled filter, inspired by the classic Korg MS-20 filter, with an innovative modulation matrix and one of the highest function-to-hp ratios in the land of Eurorack.

The MS-22 contains two dedicated filter circuits, one low-pass and the other a high-pass. These are configured in series, the high-pass going into the low-pass. This configuration allows a unique duophonic fighting resonance behaviour. The cutoff frequencies of both filters can be CV’ed. Compared to most bread-and-butter MS-20 clones, the MS-22 is twice the amount of filter condensed down into half the package (4HP).

Furthermore, the MS-22 also has the following unique selling points :
The MS-22 has a unique modulation matrix that allows to configure many internal patches without using cables. Simply put, the modulation matrix (12-14) lets you route whatever modulation source you have connected to the ACV (auxiliary) input (e.g. an external envelope, LFO, S&H etc) to any or all of the following: HPF cutoff frequency, resonance amount, and input gain amount, either inverted or not.

The MS-22 has a unique link switch, which links the cutoff frequencies of the low-pass and high-pass filters in two different ratios. This creates two flavours of band-pass filters, of which the bandwidth can be tweaked and CV’ed. The switch itself also serves as an awesome performance effect as you can use it to create an instant drop. I demonstrate this near the end of this video. [see video below]

Steve's MS-22 is built to order in limited batches, the current batch consists of 10 units. Fully assembled modules are available for 225 EUR (excl. shipping). A limited number of DIY PCB+panel sets are available for 50 EUR (incl. shipping).

"The Oberheim Matrix-1000, a 1-unit rack version of the Matrix-6/6R, with 1000 patches stored.
A great way of getting the richness of the Oberheim sound, at a lower price than a OB-X, but with the drawback of not being able to edit the sounds, UNLESS you use a MIDI editor.

Once again, a big thanks to Anders Enger Jensen for lending me his Matrix-1000! :)

Korg Volca Jam Session

Published on Dec 13, 2019 Hyperobjeckt Synths

"Playing some cool patterns on the Volca FM, Sample, and Drum. This is a laid back performance, taking it easy to close out 2019 before I start making a bunch of short tracks for #jamuary next month!

Effects are from the Monotron Delay and Zoom MS-70CDR: I'm a huge fan of running the FM through the monotron delay for a lofi drive effect. The Zoom pedal is in the send FX loop for reverb and extra stereo width.

The gear list is minimal compared to what I normally use, trying to demo this setup to see if I could do a live set without any additional synths.

Sounds used on the Volca FM and Volca Drum include patches from . The Sampler is loaded with vocal one-shots, pads, and percussion from Painkid - Tourism and STRIDER - 100 Samples packs.

This session is of course very dance focused, but I tried to keep it varied with 3/4 time at the end. 13:00 is my favorite part, with the FM arpeggiator set to random and a nice techno rhythm going on the Drum."
