MIDERA | Merdovia

Published on Dec 31, 2019 MIDERA

"I don't know if this will publish before the New Year... I have 35 minutes. I guess we'll see. The end of a decade. A lot has passed. The loss of my father, the end of terrible relationships... but the beginnings of other great things. A wonderful wife, an amazing child, my PhD, a home, a dog (I guess all my cats carried over from another decade). I'd say my music has gone well - but comparison is the thief of joy and I know my channel is pretty abysmal compared to many others around here. Hopefully the next decade goes well. I could use another good one.

My apologies for some of the camera angles. I set up my camera and recorded without really checking it out and honestly, I'm too lazy to reshoot.

Gear list:
Yamaha SY77 (bass), Roland JX-3P (melody), Chroma Polaris (heavy lead), Oberheim Matrix 1000 (bell? sound), Yamaha RS7000 (sequencing and drums), eventide space (FX)"

Basically this modular myth in a single 19” by 3U package.

I built this 20 years ago I tested most of the features and know they are working..."

1983 Crumar Spirit

via this auction

SN 19

"The Crumar Spirit was originally designed by Bob Moog (himself), Jim Scott & Tom Rhea and released back in 1983. It is a full featured analog monophonic synthesizer with 2 VCO's so it's got a pretty fat tone, but not as much as the classic 3-VCO Minimoog. However it is considerably more flexible than the latter. It has a basic 37-note keyboard without velocity or aftertouch. The two oscillators feature basic sawtooth, triangle and square waves and can be synced together.

The filter section is very nice featuring low-, high- and band-pass filters and switchable 12dB or 24dB slopes. Other features of the filter include an independent envelope with inverted and normal ADSR, key tracking and single or multiple triggering of the filter. Some other features of the Spirit include a built-in ring-modulator, an Arpeggiator with 3 different patterns and that can be linked to the LFO, and there's an external audio input for running external sounds through its filters, LFOs or Ring Mod.

This one is in very good cosmetic and technical condition. 2 slider caps are lost. See the pictures. 100 % working. 220 volt version. No cracking sliders."

Synth Subway Ambient: Metro station repairs

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"I had this short atmospheric synth track in a dusty corner of my hard drive. I came across a metro station under repairs that lent it a very interesting look with its vertical neon lighting illuminating the bare roof concrete. The music and the unconventional underground ambience go well together in this short video that transitions to the actual sounds of underground passageways, escalators and platforms.

Have you come across any interesting public transport structures in your travels or day to day?"

Ableton Instrument Megapack - Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 - Jam 2

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Expanding Sound

First demo posted here.

"(Compatible with Ableton Live Lite 9.7.7 and above)
get the pack here

I often make a few jams showcasing the sound of an Ableton Instrument pack I release, here is a second jam for my newest release, the Prophet 600. I was having a ton of fun with this pack and hope you enjoy it.

A little more on the Prophet 600 pack

The Prophet 600 is sometimes referred to as the "little brother" of the Prophet 5. Don't let that description allow you to underestimate the Prophet 600. It's a beautiful sounding vintage synth. The pads and brass patches sound incredible. The filter is syrupy and warm. I love the Prophet 600 and I think you will too. It's often referred to as one of the best under the radar synth deals on the market. This pack is very straightforward in its sound palate. I wanted to make serviceable musical sounds for my first go at this synth, and follow it up with a more experimental modulation heavy pack in the future. This Megapack will set you up to start making music right away."

1967 Rocky Mount Instruments ( RMI) Explorer Combo Organ

via this auction

This is the same one in the video above.

"Extremely rare and unusual combo organ made by Allen Organ’s Rocky Mountain Instrument division in the late 1960s. This is a transistor based keyboard with an oscillator for each key and unique flying hammer system for asynchronous tremolo and delay like effects.

Preset sounds include: Trumpet, Post Horn, Clarinet, Gamba, Flute, Mandolin, Banjo..what really makes this instrument interesting are the effects - Short Sustain, Long Sustain, Strum, String Speech Accenter, Echo & Tremolo.

This Explorer is fully functional, it has been cleaned inside and out. It is in average cosmetic condition for these with some chipping of the painted plywood case. A new case could be constructed if desired but i chose to leave it be due to the extreme rarity of this instrument. All keyboard action felts have been replaced with parts supplied by Allen Organ, it plays and feels incredible compared to the other 2 I’ve serviced over the last decade. I also took the opportunity to recap the power supply with new high quality electrolytic capacitors for safety as the originals were beginning to leak.

Includes the original keyboard cover, a NOS power cord that I managed to hunt down at a surplus supply company and the original capacitors i removed from the supply."

The Intellijel Quadrax is Four Powerful Function Generators in 14HP

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Intellijel's Quadrax is an updated version of the Quadra—their classic quadruple function generator. And while Quadra primarily emulated the behavior of classic Buchla and Serge function generators by creating AD, AR, and cycling envelopes, Quadrax does much more. In this video, it is paired with a Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas and Malekko Varigate 4+ to create intricate sequenced modulation patterns.

Digital at its core, Quadrax expands the quad function generator paradigm with a number of new features. Of course, AD/AR/cycling modes are still available—but expanded LFO and pulse burst modes are also available. Quadrax's LFOs are wavetable based and allow continuous variation of wave shape, for everything from classic triangles and squares to considerably more complex, pseudo-wavefolded shapes. Quadrax's bursts are variable-amplitude pulse signals, great for evolving, dynamic modulation.

All of this combined with complex options for interrelating channels via an integrated modulation matrix makes Quadrax an uncommonly advanced function generator—perfect for simple envelope duties, LFOs, and generative modulation."

Vermona '14/Gregorian Chant (Hildegard von Bingen: "Caritas Habundat")

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Hello all - and a happy new year/decade when it arrives. Appropriately, a little von Bingen to finish off the decade. If this work sounds familiar: the initial melody/phrase was used as the horn solo melody (first phrase) on the track 'Life' from the movie 'Prometheus'. The phrase ending is slightly altered in Prometheus, but the seed can clearly be heard. The second horn phrase is, however, authentic to von Bingen.

These melodies (Gregorian chants in general) have been part of my musical heritage since early childhood, and have been part of the family for many generations. Hence my plan to record and release an 'official' set in the near future.

In any instance, the coming decade will certainly be an interesting one.

open e-drums - Open Source Drum Synthesizer with Teensy 3.2

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Ryo Kosaka


Single piezo pad, Dual Piezo pad, 2 zone cymbal, 3 zone cymbal
Compatible with YAMAHA's 3 zone cymbal(PCY135/PCY155)
Compatible with SoftPot, FSR and Optical(TCRT5000) type hi-hat controllers
Sensing with MUX(4051 and 4067)
Setting mode with LCD or OLED
Sensitivity, Threshold, Scan Time, Mask Time, Note Number can be set with each pad
Works with ESP32 and Teensy and AVR boards such as UNO and MEGA.

"open e-drums" is a completely open source electronic drum. Pads that can be produced with 3D printers, and midi converters are all open source hardware. Arduino code for sensing is also available. You can create your own e-drum from scratch, or add pads to the Roland and YAMAHA kits.

This project started by accident. At the time, I was a product design student who had used Arduino just a little. When I found a drum mania controller at a used store at a bargain price, I was somehow attracted to it and bought it. This is the beginning of everything. I took it apart and played with Arduino. I used a piezo for the first time at that time. I learned the delicate sensing ability of piezo. I realized the greatness of electronic drums such as Roland, Yamaha, and Alesis, which process the signals beautifully. I want to try it myself.

I didn't have any knowledge of programming or electronics. In other words, I have acquired a lot of knowledge through this project. For some people, this project is just a reinvention of the wheel. But it's a very meaningful project for me. As I proceeded with this project, I drew on the knowledge of many predecessors. Many of them keep information open. That's great. So I decided to publish this project as an open source hardware project. I would be happy if this project helps someone create something."

Metasonix 4u Drums with the Serge Modular Gate Sequencer

Published on Dec 31, 2019 FOR channel

"The Scrotum Lab Serge Gate Sequencer mclass (STS style) panel is a funk machine. Here it´s sequencing a Metasonix 4u RK4 Filter set as a Kick Drum, and the Snare made of RK1 noise going to RK6 Low Pass Filter and RK5
Low Pass Gate. RK3 Mangler and RK2 VCA are processing the RK4 Kick.

Two droning RK7 Oscillators are mixed on the Serge XFADER , with a bit of BlueSky reverb on top. The SCROLAB Gate Sequencer has some cool ways to manually affect the sequences. Here in this video , i´m just focusing on altering it´s own clock ( A Stroh Pico VCO) by patching one of the GAte Sequencer Full outputs to the 1v/OCT on the Pico. I have to mention again that i´m not amplifying any Serge control signal in order to work with the Metasonix modules. Thanks for watching the videos. Have a Great 2020 !"
