Robust American Patches Volume I Presets for the Roland/Studio Electronics SE-02

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Robust American Patches

"Please visit for more info! This bank of presets is on sale right now to celebrate our one year anniversary and to help ring in the new year! Save over 50% for a limited time!

Every sound in this demo song was programmed from scratch with the Roland/Studio Electronics SE-02. 16 of our presets from our latest release, "Volume I for the SE-02 " are at work here. Aftertouch, ModWheel, Velocity and Pitchbend were the only controllers used in the performances so you can hear what the presets sound like "out of the box". Practically every patch in this bank has MW, Aftertouch and Velocity assigned. We used a few of the UAD plugins for some extra echoes and reverb here and there. All sounds recorded into Nuendo at 24bit/48Khz through the Audient ASP-880.

Thanks for watching!"

via Robust American Patches

"128 Synthesizer Presets for your Roland/Studio Electronics SE-02! Lovingly hand crafted from scratch, these sounds beg to be played from a controller with a modwheel and aftertouch. (Nearly every single patch has both MW and Aftertouch assignments...Not to mention Velocity and Pitchbend) This is the early, raw release and we're offering a huge Holiday/1Year Anniversary discount off of the already low price for a very limited time. What does "raw release" mean? No preset descriptions file, no individual preset files (besides the usb drive files) and a severe lack of demonstrations at the moment. Hey what do you want for $7.50? :) We've included the official editor bank files and the SE-02 USB drive folders with quick "read me" files explaining how to load the this bank. The complete demonstrations are in the works and should be up shortly after the holidays. The preset list and descriptions file should be completed around the same time and will be sent to existing owners immediately when finished.

Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays to all Synthusiasts!"

Synth + Pedal Sound Design Tutorial - Arturia MicroFreak and Zoom MS-70CDR

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Waveformer

"In this tutorial, I create a dreamy pad sound using a very basic patch on the Arturia MicroFreak and a phaser, delay and reverb from the Zoom MS-70CDR effects pedal.

This technique is by no means exclusive to the MicroFreak synth and the MS-70 pedal, and should work with almost any synth. The Zoom MS-70CDR pedal is perhaps the cheapest way of getting multiple good effects in one pedal, but there are lots of other options.

Please let me know in the comments if you create something similar using other equipment. I would love to hear about it.

The Zoom MS-70CDR patch is included below. To load the patch into the MS-70, connect your MS-70 to your computer using a USB cable, go to, right-click an available patch slot, select "Import Patch from text", and paste in this text.


The MicroFreak patch "DreamyPadWF" can be downloaded from the Files section of the Arturia MicroFreak facebook group.

The audio is recorded on a Korg KP2S and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on iPhoneX. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 15.

Rossum Electro Music Assimil8or Multi-Timbral Phase Modulation Sampler 2.0 Software: Channel Explode

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Rossum Electro-Music

"Assimil8or Software v2.00 has been released. Check the Downloads tab at the link above for details.

2.00 New Features Guide:

Channel Operations Menu

When on the Channels page, double-click the DATA1 encoder to bring up a popup menu containing channel operations:

Cancel: Pretty self-evident

Explode (2-8): Automatically duplicates the current channel’s sample into the selected number of channels and sets the sample and loop start and end points to successive even fractions of the entire sample. So, in effect, divides the sample into “x” equal hunks and automatically assigns them to successive channels. Great for splitting precisely edited loops into individual beats or phrases and accessing them on a channel by channel basis. It works on multiple zones simultaneously and also edits the right side if the sample is stereo.

Here’s how:

"The EXB-RADIAS is a 24-voice, 4-part multi-timbral (1 timbre per Program, up to 4 Programs can be used in Combi and Sequencer modes) RADIAS Synthesizer Board for the Korg M3 Music/Workstation. This powerful MMT-based (Multiple Modeling Technology) synth engine features dual oscillators which combine to offer analog-modeled waves, PCM waves, noise, ring mod and more. Waveform modulation, Variable Phase Modulation (VPM), Unison voice thickening, PWM and cross-mod expand the sonic palette. The EXB-RADIAS offers the same vocoder as the RADIAS, offering 16 bands with individual control over level and panning. Internal or external audio can be run through the EXB-RADIAS to be gated and filtered using the internal synthesis and effects."

Sonic Freakes Prophet 600 Synthesizer GliGli Presets

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Sonic Freaks

"This is a demo of the presets we have made for the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 with the GliGli mod. In total there are 100 presets. In the 3 demo's we demonstrate ±65 of them. We hope you like them!

For more info visit:

The Prophet 600 gligli presets collection is a custom designed set of presets which takes full advantage of the new features the gligli mod offers. The gligli mod takes the Prophet 600 into the 21st century and can easily compete sound-wise with modern synths.

In this collection you will find snappy basses and percussive sounds due to the new very fast envelop generators. The new LFO shapes enables the Prophet 600 to create beautiful evolving pad and string sounds and there are many in this collection.

The gligli mod also let you play the Prophet 600 with a velocity sensitive midi keyboard or DAW. The Prophet now becomes a very expressive synthesizer which offers a whole lot of new possibilities. A lot of the presets in this collection make use of these new expressive features.

The Prophet 600 gligli presets collection is great for every Prophet 600 gligli owner. The sounds are completely different from presets you will find anywhere online for the Prophet 600. Our presets are very modern, vintage, expressive and fun to play and to create music with. A great set of presets for creating electro, techno, synth pop, synth wave, hip hop, pop and much more."

Fugue Machine jam with Deckard's Dream, OB-6, Novation Peak, Dreadbox Abyss, Polymoon, Big Sky

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by the maudlin moods of the holidays. This is something of a sequel to the last video, in that I'm using exactly the same hardware synths and have only swapped out the sequencer. My point: by simply changing how you sequence your music, you can radically change the kind of music you make. Fugue Machine's limitations (a single line of note data played in different ways by four different "tape heads") are really inspiring, and the constraints end up a major benefit to creativity.

Alexandernaut's Fugue Machine (via iOS) — Sequencing
Sequential/Oberheim OB-6 — Bass string thing
Novation Peak — Arp thing
Black Corporation Deckard's Dream + Meris Polymoon — High melody pad thing
Dreadbox Abyss + Strymon Big Sky — Fast arp

Written and performed within a 24-hour period, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master."

Published on Dec 19, 2019 synthprocess Club of the Knobs Synthesizer

"Club Of The Knobs Modular Analog Synthesizer manufactory now offers the SEQUENCER COMPLEMENT B. In contrast to the original, the interface 961 has been replaced against two CP958 Dual Scale Programmer. Thus not only the output of the sequencers can be quantized but using one channel of the CP958 in keyboard-mode allows to transpose the sequences without additional external devices. Wishing you a happy new decade - and celebrate the sequences!"

The Sequencer Complement B was an original Moog Design. You can find some posts featuring the Complement B here.

In contrast to the original Sequencer Complement B, we have exchanged the Interface 961 against two of our CP958 Dual Scale Programmer. This offers the advantage that not only the outputs of the C960 Sequencers can be quantized, it is even possible to use one channel of the CP958 in keyboard mode to transpose the sequences without additional external devices. New in our range is the (original) CP962 Sequential Switch.

"Just in time for the turn of a new decade, we are excited to release our 2020 calendar, The 50th Anniversary of the Birth of the Minimoog, which traces this synthesizer's history from the creation of the prototypes through its eventual release in 1970 and beyond, featuring rare images of the instrument including those with pioneering artists Sun Ra, Dick Hyman, and Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece.

Images were drawn from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives, as well as from David Borden (Mother Mallards Portable Masterpiece), Dick Hyman, Douglas Trubey, and the extensive collection at the Electronic Music Education and Archive Preservation Project (EMEAPP), owners all four Minimoog prototypes.

Further honoring Minimoog history, the calendar features important dates along the evolution of the Minimoog on its journey to becoming the most iconic analog synthesizer of all times.

All profits from the sales of our calendar benefit our hallmark projects, Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, the Moogseum and the preservation of the Bob Moog Foundation Archives. Thank you for supporting our important work!"

Nothing complicated, just a touch of noise mixed in with the square and triangle, and a smidge of waveshaping.
It's accompanied by the 208 Complex Oscillator doing the plinky plonks.

All with a little dab of the on-board Buchla spring reverb and a Bugbrand PT Delay."

The Rise of Listening Bars: Barcelona | Resident Advisor x Asahi Super Dry

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Resident Advisor

Anyone ID what that is at 3:16? One pitch wheel and a few knobs on the right. Shape reminds me of an SH-101, Teisco 110f, original Novation BassStation, or Access Virus. It's clearly not any of them. MIDI controller? That's the only synth content in this one, but cool idea and cool video. Giving this one the Mystery Synths label.

"The past few years have seen a wave of listening bars opening across Europe. Taking inspiration from Japan's culture of audiophile venues, these spots put a unique twist on a long-standing tradition, creating an environment for discovering music that appeals to hi-fi obsessives and casual listeners alike.

The Rise of Listening Bars: Barcelona

"We are in a Mediterranean city—at some point people want to chat." Guille De Juan, owner of Barcelona venue Curtis, knows it's impossible to replicate a Japanese-style, no-talking-allowed listening bar in his home city. Instead, he's built a space inspired by Japan's audiophile venues but adapted to Barcelona's buzzy atmosphere.
Curtis, which opened in 2018, also takes inspiration from a source closer to home: Nica, a Barcelona audiophile venue with an impressive programme of DJs and live acts.

Barcelona isn't the only city where listening bar culture is taking root. You will find them in Stockholm, Amsterdam, Istanbul and London. (The previous film in this series told the story of London's influential Brilliant Corners.) These spots put a unique twist on a long-standing tradition, creating an environment for discovering music that appeals to hi-fi obsessives and casual listeners alike.

Produced by Resident Advisor in partnership with Asahi Super Dry Beer.
