"Drifting" - 85 BPM Ambient - Raspberry PI, Yamaha EX5 & Guitar

Published on Dec 24, 2019 Floyd Steinberg

"I finally got my Raspberry PI's audio interface working with Linux' JACK&ALSA, so here's a short synth & guitar improvisation. Using the external audio output somewhat reduced the 'xrun callbacks', but you still have to be careful while playing. The PI is running qsynth with a rhodes soundfont and synth v1 for that synth bass. It's sequenced by an EX5 workstation, which also adds the pad sound. I recorded additional guitar and vocal tracks after this was done."

'Here’s something slightly different! Is it an LFO? Is it an envelope generator? Well, it’s a bit of both. It produces a one-off event like an envelope generator, but it has a selection of waves more like an LFO.'

Korg Mono/Poly Minus Keys

via this auction

"Due to the conversion, this device works differently from the original:

- The keyboard has been removed

- The modulation wheels have been replaced by the two additional knobs

- The arpeggiator function does not work, but it has MIDI

- The octave selector does not change the pitch, but the filter opening

- It can only be played monophonically, so it's actually a mono / mono"

via this auction

"Prophet 5 Rev 3 in absolutely amazing physical and functional condition. The wood practically glows, and there's barely a scratch (minus a couple by the pitch wheel -- pictured). Sounds enormous, punchy, and classic. Keyboard feels excellent. Auto-tune is fast and reliable, and the tuning in general is stable and worry-free. MIDI works great."

Volca Drum - Kicks Only Jam

Published on Dec 24, 2019 Oscillator Sink

"My most recent tutorial video was all about kicks, so naturally that means I've been making loasd of kick patches. So, I thought it might be fun to make a short jam using only those kick sounds - and I was right, it was!

The Volca Drum's synthesis engine loves to make kicks and it can really throw out a tonne of low-end - I actually had to cut a fair bit at the mastering stage, but I guess that was inevitable in a jam only using kick sounds!"

VCO GR11 and VCF GR21 -Rebach /C Quencer DLX -Centre Village

Published on Dec 24, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Today I have a small movie with a very nice GR series from ReBach.
I used VCO GR 11 with Filter VCF GR21 from Rebach with ADSR-A from Catch series, and C Quencer DLX scale sequencer from Centre Village and delay Euro DDL from Eventide.
The GR series is great because it sounds really good and the VCO GR 11 is an SAW CORE based oscillator.
I added quite a lot of resonance later from the filter and quite a high level for slightly overdrive, can be heard after adding a large resonance.
In any case, it's best to check it out for yourself and see that this sound is really cool."
