Blood 2 - Novation Summit as a Looper Improvisation using a Jogging House fine fine preset

Published on Dec 22, 2019 -CALC-

"Jogging House has made some of the best sounding presets I've heard recently for the Novation Peak. Here is one of those patches loaded onto Summit.

This one uses the delay set to infinite feedback as a looper. The Animate switch then kills the feedback control to remove parts of the loop. It has to be one of the cleverest patches I've seen on the instrument.

I also adore the sample from Gavin Bryars "Jesus Blood never failed me yet". It is found sound of the highest quality and a quite wonderful/emotional story too. A chance snapshot of a forgotten history.

I do not own this sample or copyright and if I'm told to I will take this down (fingers crossed I'm not)."

SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS PROPHET VS - Sounds, Patches & Ambient Soundscapes | Vector Synthesizer Demo

Published on Dec 22, 2019 synth4ever

"Sequential Circuits Prophet VS (vector synthesizer) synth demo -- featuring various sounds, presets, patches and ambient soundscapes.

Manufactured in 1986-87, the Sequential Circuits Prophet VS was Sequential's first digital synth. It uses a total of four oscillators per voice with 127 waveforms (32 user) and dynamic waveform crossfading via the joystick.

The Prophet VS features 8 voices and is 2-part multimbral, 2 LFOs with envelopes, a 4-pole resonant lowpass Curtis filter with envelope, 3x 5-stage amp, filter and mix envelopes, twin chorus, stereo effects panning of individual oscillators/individual voices, a versatile arpeggiator and more.

The Prophet VS is a fantastic synth for ambient soundscapes, glassy and smooth pads, cutting leads/basses, and harsh textures. It allows you to create interesting sounds via the hybrid digital oscillator + analog filters/VCA, and morph between them using vector synthesis.

The vector synthesis technology in the Prophet VS allows you to blend between 4 different oscillator tones in real-time via the vector joystick. This technology would go on to appear in future synths including the Korg Wavestation (including wavescanning), Yamaha SY-22 and TG-33.

The Prophet VS is fairly rare and hard to come by these days, and is available in keyboard and rack versions. Unfortunately they are also notoriously difficult to repair if something should fail... however, if you have the opportunity to try one, don't hesitate as the sound is very special. There is also now a real-time controller from Stereoping that open up real-time editing immensely vs. the menu diving required on a stock unit."

Onde and Easel - first audio test

Published on Dec 22, 2019 UncertainMusicCorps

"First audio test for the Onde and the Music Easel.

Using the Easel to generate a wide range of timbres and frequencies and comparing the sound of the Onde with that of the Easel recorded direct to camera.

The Onde is recorded using an AT 2050. No EQ is applied other than a 20Hz shelf. The Easel is also recorded flat with no external fx.

Note this is a first test. More experimentation with mic placement may give a different feel although the recording sounds like a fair representation of what I can hear live. More important is the need for me to experiment with other mounting systems. The supplied tripods are quite vulnerable to sympathetic resonance as is the flimsy table top it is standing on.

For purists, the soundtrack for this video is available for download as a 48Khz, 24bit wav file here"

The Onde is by La Voix du Luthier.

Podcast 307: Eric Schlappi

Published on Dec 22, 2019 20Objects

"There are a few modules that have been quietly creeping into discussions - and modular rigs - over the last few months. One manufacturer that keeps coming up is Schlappi Engineering - and especially the Angle Grinder module. I'm not sure how you make a quadrature oscillator sexy - but Eric Schlappi seems to have done it!

In this chat, we go over Eric's background, how he came up with some of his modules, some of the technologies that he's exploring for the future, and his own music-making (and performing) process. His modules are opinionated (in that they have design decisions that can drive you in certain directions), but in a way that can still allow you to maintain your own voice. He also talks about his own obsession with analog monosynths, and how this has influenced his own electronics development.

In addition to his modules, you can check out some of his recorded work on his Bandcamp site ( Also, for Tier 2 (and above) Patreon supporters (, we have an extended interview about the performative aspects of the 100 Grit that is particularly interesting.


Roland System-8 - Lost patches

I`ve found a video presenting around 20 custom patches (and some performances using them) made by me something like 2 years ago. Feels like the System-8 is still a good player in the synth game.

"This morning I restored my Boss CE-1 Chorus pedal. I socketed and replaced all of the IC's - The MN3002 BBD delay chip, and the three op amps - and replaced all of the 220uf electrolytic capacitors on the board and gave it a try.

Wow was I delighted. It sounds so much deeper, wider, warmer, and more dramatic than before. It was scratchy, and rough before without much of the elegance I was hoping to add to my single output analog synthesizers (Jupiter-6, Mono/Poly, etc.).

I'm thrilled at such a dramatic improvement with just a few components.

This is posted for the benefit of my friends on instagram who don't get to hear these lush, swirling effects in stereo there.
