ASM Hydrasynth // Sine Waves into MS-20 Filter & LPG Models (in two parts)

Published on Dec 21, 2019 Genshi Media Group


This is just a personal test for myself; playing with pure Sine waves into a couple of different filter models to see what kind of tones I can get out of them. In Part One I'm using the Cutoff, Resonance, and Drive of the MS-20 Filter model to get various tones from the Sine waves, and in Part Two I am using the Low Pass Gate model along with Osc Sync and PWM Squeeze to get Bell-like tones. And of course, in Part One, I just couldn't resist adding the Blade Runner lead part-way through the demonstration... I just love that patch!"

Poly800 with Hawk800 and the rest....

Published on Dec 21, 2019 No Nag Recordings

"This Video was a test mostly for a new Video software is was testing out. I'm strugling to learn it but im getting there. This just took too long and as you'll se in the end it just craps out and I couldn't fix that.. ??? (Sorry)
The Hawk800 is truely a must for the Poly800 in my mind. it makes this synth go from lame to cool, with the AtomaHawk and FM800 mods. This is just some presets for testing. I have a better video coming with a Behringer BCR2000 and some realtime tweaking because this deserves that."

Novation // Start Making - Chicago House

Published on Dec 21, 2019 NovationTV

"For the next video in our Start Making series, we headed across London to sample a load of sounds to make a Chicago House track, using only a Launchpad Pro and what comes in the box. In this video, we took our samples from the London underground, a tour bus, and a cocktail bar... Check it out.

What do you get with Launchpad Pro?
The sounds in the video are sampled using an iPhone and input into Ableton Live Lite, alongside the Bass Station plug-in, V-Station plug-in and an XLN Addictive Keys Instrument (one from a choice of four!).

Arturia Microbrute / ME80 / reFX Nexus2 Ambient Synth jam

Published on Dec 21, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"An ambient synth track paying tribute to the Tangerine Dream style of the early 80s. Layering both an analog hardware synthesizer and virtual software instruments. Peaceful sequences intertwine with resonant flourishes anchored by a woolly bassline.

Instruments used:
Memorymoon ME80 VST (Yamaha CS80 emulation)
ReFX Nexus 2 VST
U-HE Repro-5 VST (Prophet 5 emulation)
Arturia Microbrute (for bassline)

What No Other "303 Clone" Can Do... // Avalon Bassline Overview 2.0

Published on Dec 21, 2019 Ricky Tinez

"Yes, this is an expensive TB-303 Clone. But i think the way you sound design on this Acid Bass line beast is super unique! It takes Modulation to a weird area where one parameter affects another. The Abstract Instruments Bassline is easily my favorite for that reason."

Soundforce Dual Filter // "affordable" dual LP or HP OTA based filter in Eurorack

Published on Dec 21, 2019 DivKidVideo

Available at Signal Sounds for £129.00.

"Here we have the new Dual Filter Eurorack module from Soundforce. It’s an OTA based design that has it’s routes in the later updated Korg MS-20 filter cores. The Dual Filter is a dual independent mono filter where each of the filters can be set to low pass or high pass filter modes with jumpers on the back of the module. Patching one side into the other we can make HP-LP series processing chains, patch in dual mono, stereo or parallel processing and we can also make band pass filters by using both sides.

"The SoundForce Dual Filter is a 2-stage cascaded OTA design based on the late MS-20. The design has been fine-tuned with extended resonance control as well as a resonance CV input. Each filter can be either a 12dB/oct low-pass or 6dB/oct high-pass. To keep the module HPs on the low side, the filter mode setting is located on the back of the module. The module was designed to be a very affordable full-featured modern filter.

Highly efficient design:
This design attracted me very particularly due to its beautiful simplicity. With only 2 poles, it uses a total of 3 OTA ICs and 4 OP-AMP ICs for both filters even with the added resonance voltage control. Early on, efficiency and part counts were a focus during testing and development. In combination with automated manufacturing and a very short supply chain, the module has a very high quality standard at a very affordable price. The module uses only A-brand ICs and passive and no costs were cut during purchasing."

"Short demo of the Behringer WASP played with a few FX and bits and bobs to give a feel for what it would sound like in a live performance... plus the raw sounds.

Just 3 short sequences showing a small range sounds."

"This is a no-talking demo of Arturia Buchla Easel V VST synth. This is based on the Buchla Music Easel hardware synthesizer. It's what you'd call a "west coast" synth mainly because of the philosophy of the architecture."
