This time FM CYM takes the lead with a 3 voices polyphony.
FM CB splits in two detuned and extra wide voices to achieve a chorus/phased power bass.
BD and SD tracks double as a mono track and a stereo track with slightly different pitches to create a phasing bass and noise on the rythic part as well.
FM XT and CH does the rest.
CTR ALL machine takes care of the live manglings."

OCTAVE THE CAT Synthesizer - Sounds & Patches | Synth Demo

Published on Dec 18, 2019 synth4ever

"Demo of Octave The Cat analog synthesizer, featuring tweaking on various sounds and patches. Filmed at Paul's Boutique music shop ( in Toronto, Canada.

Released in the 1970s, Octave the Cat is a monophonic/duophonic synth with 2 VCOs (2 sawtooth, 2 square wave, and 1 triangle) plus 2 sub-oscillators, 1 LFO, 1 VCA and 2 envelope generators (AR and ADSR). It also has some quirky modulation routings.

Both the original Cat and SRM Cat allow you to create some wild sounds including screaming leads, S&H patterns and noisy textures. It is a fun synth to explore as it offers a decent amount of sound design potential.

Octave The Cat is a classic synth similar in design to the Arp Odyssey, but with its own sonic flavor. If you have the chance to try one out, definitely give it a go."

KORG's Tatsuya ‘Tats’ Takahashi Returns to KORG as CEO of KORG Germany


"KORG Germany is the new Berlin subsidiary of KORG.

Our instruments will be developed not only by the core team we are building, but also through per project partnerships and collaborations.

We are the flux, and the fabric it passes through.


They are hiring.

Tats is credited with bringing back analog at KORG, so this will be interesting. It's worth noting Behringer recently hired KORG's Hiroaki Nishijima.

MOS-LAB's Custom ARP 2500 System Clone

Two pics in via M Me.

This is a new custom system. New modules and new modulation matrix sliders on top and bottom. Rumor is that MOS-LAB not be selling systems with the modulation matrix, so modules only? If so, will they have patch points? These don't. All patching is done with the matrix switches you see on the top and bottom rows in these images. You can find additional posts featuring the ARP 2500 here.

You might remember mention of MOS-LAB creating a 2500 clone back in July here. An ARP 1026 Preset/Voltage Module Clone recently came up for sale. Not sure if it was from MOS-LAB though. As of this post there is no info on the MOS-LAB website.

Novation // Find Your Sound - Journeys - Hip Hop Performance

Published on Dec 18, 2019 NovationTV

"Find Your Sound - Journeys are a series of short films documenting the process of creating original music using sounds we have found across the world with Launchpad.

For our third journey we headed out to LA for a few days, to meet with some local producers, hang out with street musicians and explore the city to collect some sounds that we could use to create some beats and build a hip hop track. For this journey, we used Launchpad X.

--- Download the Ableton session for free here:

--- For more information on Launchpad X:

Equipment Used:
Zoom H6 Handy Recorder
Rode NTG3 Microphone with Rode Blimp windshield
Basic Contact Microphone / Hydrophone (with 3.5mm connection)
ADAM Audio SP-5 Closed-Back Headphones

Ableton Live Lite"


"Wavefront_Audio has now updated their 16+ CHANNEL ANALOG VOCODER plus additional SPECTRAL CHANNEL MANAGER.

Important feature is 'Silence Bridging': in some arrangements it may be useful to have the carrier sound through in vocal pauses.

Now you can now download the manual and find the explanation of the parts in the schematics on the website.

Wavefront_Audio wishes you a HAPPY and VOICED 2020!"

SoundsDivine 'Warped Vinyl' - FXpansion Strobe 2

Published on Dec 18, 2019 SoundsDivine111

"Preview of the presets from the 'Warped Vinyl' soundset for FXpansion Strobe 2"

"‘Warped Vinyl’ contains 100 sounds for FXpansion Strobe 2

These patches are designed to sound old & worn out. This soundset tries to emulate the sound of classic analog polysynths like the Korg Polysix & Yamaha CS-70 through cheap 90s reverbs and old analog delays pedals and tape machines.

Making full use of Strobe 2’s Transmod system, these sounds are dynamic and expressive with extensive mod wheel and aftertouch assignments for each patch.

‘Warped Vinyl’ features a variety of different presets, including, BoC style synth sounds, CS-80 brass sounds, dusty old pads, noisy space echo fx, drifty tremolo pads, old organ sounds, distorted electric pianos and much more."

More OP-1 sound comparisons with an external keyboard

Published on Dec 18, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"A wide range of Teenage Engineering OP-1 synth sounds tested out using both the OP1 keys and the Arturia Keystep which is capable of velocity and aftertouch. While the OP-1 does not support aftertouch, it does respond to velocity. However, its own keyboard isn't capable of transmitting it to the sound engines. Check out what the differences are for a wide range of sounds.

This video is a follow up to an earlier test where I showed how to set up an external keyboard with the OP-1over USB through a laptop running Ableton Live: Check that out if you need a refresher.

"4 in the mornin" Dawless electronic jam: Novation Peak, AS Nyborg-24, Jomox Alpha Base, Roland JX8P

Published on Apr 22, 2019 Charles Whiley

"Whatcha got here is the AS Nyborg-12 on bass with nifty CV to filter cutoff commands in 'tiny' step fashion which creates nice accents run thru some Eventide Space reverb. Then you got the Roland JX8P on pad. Then ya got the Alpha Base on drums. Then you have the Novation Peak on lead. Subtle sidechain compression on the Nyborg via the KT Square One. Tell me what you think and share it if you like it!"

"This comes with Extra Cartridges and a custom built expression knob for controlling filter or any other parameter that can be assigned to the expression pedal input. It's in decent shape for its age but needs a new battery in order to save patches internally, to get around this I have been simply storing patches on the external card instead.

Announcement NEW DIVKID EURORACK MODULE // Meet ochd made with Instruo

Published on Dec 18, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Hello hello, here's my second eurorack module øchd or ochd. It's pronounced "oct" as in octave or octuplet and as if by magic there's eight outputs on this module, an octuplet of analogue LFOs if you will. I often find I need more modulation, simple sources that will keep things moving and stop things getting repetitive. That’s why ochd was brought to life, to keep patches organically drifting and moving… and as it’s modular, we wanted an intuitive easy to use module with plenty of patchable tricks up it’s sleeves too!

ochd is a 4HP Eurorack module with eight analogue triangle LFOs. The outputs go from fast on the top output to slow on the bottom output. The default ranges are deliberate NOT synced. These are free running LFOs that were tuned by ear to be musical useful for a range of fast to slow modulations in a patch. Organic animation, drifting and musical phasing is the intention of the module. The rate control controls the rate of all LFOs globally and takes this into lower audio rates right down to 25 minute cycles on the lowest output. This can be extended even slower with CV, with the CV input and attenuverter on board and we can also track and hold the outputs with a negative CV, interrupting and holding modulation values with external gates of CVs. Another trick to take this from simple triangle shapes is to patch a spare output into the CV input and wave shape with feedback. Exponential curves, odd squares, stepped waveforms and more are available with some adjustment of the attenuverter and using different outputs to voltage control itself.

While patching a prototype at DivKid HQ Richard Devine said this was "the most organic little modulator ever" - lovely stuff!"

ASM Hydrasynth // Multi-tracked

Published on Dec 18, 2019 Genshi Media Group


This is a quick little improvised multi-tracked jam on the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth. No other sounds or effects were used other than the Hydrasynth. There is a very low booming kick sound that can only be heard with a good pair of headphones or studio monitors (you will not be able to hear it properly with computer or phone speakers.)"
