Weekly tutorials available at patreon.com/majorosc

"James High, AKA MajorOSC, has been busy the past few months, designing many of the presets you may have recently heard in the new Modal Electronics Cobalt8 videos. He was also hired by Modal to do music for all of their Cobalt launch videos. But he wasn't quite finished...

Side Story:

After handing over the Masters of the 30-second Cobalt demo songs he had finished in the days prior to launch, MajorOSC teamed up with fellow Cobalt sound designer AlphaCodeSynth to work on an extended mix of the official demo song. AlphaCode used his own presets from Cobalt8 and produced an outstanding extended mix. You can have a listen here.

MajorOSC plans to continue releasing commercial patch banks, while also designing factory presets for several other company's upcoming synthesizers, both hardware and software. No further details at this time.

It's very likely you'll be hearing early patch previews on MajorOSC's new patreon page. His tutorials on Hydrasynth have been deep. His studio tips come from over a decade of production on Ableton, Logic and now, exclusively on Bitwig. Other synths he plans to feature in tutorials are the Novation Summit, and the Modal Cobalt8.

MajorOSC hit hard times last month with a series of setbacks related to the impact of the pandemic. He is doing everything possible to keep things running smoothly in the meantime. Head over to patreon.com/majorosc to gain access to the great tutorials, and keep the wheels in motion for this ambitious sound designer by becoming a patron.

Vai 32 : Solina String Ensemble, Binson Echorec B1s, Welson Syntex and Eko Rhythmaker




"Pretty self-explanatory but the Solina String Ensemble is going through the Schulte Compact Phasing and Binson Pre-Mixer and Echorec B1s, the Eko Rhythmaker is going through the Binson as well for tube saturation purposes.

The Welson Syntex is an Italian synth from the mid 70s, a great dual oscillator, analog, monophonic synthesizer with white and pink (!) noise, four footages per oscillator and lots of modulation capabilities.
That Moog ladder filter is on board as well, together with all the footages engaged it can really sound huge and sometimes terrifying.

We make these videos as a showcase for our studio and for curious vintage heads - and for fun.

We don't dilly-dally too much with production and mixing but it can sound pretty good with headphones on."

ONE MINUTE SYNTH REVIEW!!! Ep. 20 Novation Mininova (Halloween Special)


Noir Et Blanc Vie

"*Subjective opinions within, those who do not understand subjective opinion may be excused lol*
*ALL music in this video is 100% Novation Mininova*

DON'T WORRY I'LL NEVER DO AN EPISODE IN BLACK AND WHITE AGAIN lol

Thank you to Jefferson Black, an amazing actor, impressionist and a nice guy!

TLDR: Back in 2010's I remember always looking at the Mininova, but for some reason I was just not intrigued enough to pick one up. I disliked the mini-keys, the Program Grid, everything made me see this as just another Microkorg wannabe...well, it's not, it's a whole lot more. If the polyphony isn't enough for you the Mininova is like a blank canvas type synth, it's a little plastic sounding, but not too plastic, it's menu system isn't terrible, it's a great value, but is it for me..........well, no, duh. I don't need another synth to save my life, but IF this were 2012 again I'd say yes to the Mininova.

Hotz Box MIDI Translator - The Original Theoryboard


Sean McKee

"A history, overview and tutorial of the very rare Hotz Box MIDI Translator hardware and software, invented by Jimmy Hotz. I decided to make this video because the only videos I found were of people playing the Hotz Box, but there was really no information out there on how it worked, and on forums it was very misunderstood. Hopefully this video will provide enough insights to educate people interested in this system and how it can be used. If you'd like to get a custom system built of any size, Jimmy can add polyphonic aftertouch and other features. For more information visit www.jimmyhotz.com."

Electronic Dream Plant WASP synth, Kim Wilde, Nick Rhodes... in memory of Chris Huggett,


Electric Cafe

"This video demonstrates the sound of the Electronic Dream Plant WASP synthesizer, Kim Wilde used it for her hit single Kids In America, and Duran Duran keyboard player Nick Rhodes used it early in with the band.

Sadly Chris Huggett passed away on October 22nd 2020 but leaves behind a legacy of synth production that in a British way rivals that of Moog, Oberheim, ARP, and other synthesizer manufacturers. Today there are companies who recognise the popularity of the EDP WASP and have cloned them, Behringer and the Jasper are just two who have released their version of this classic vintage sounding synthesizer which rivals some Moog, Oberheim, ARP, Yamaha, and other famous synthesizer company products since the late 1970's.

EmissionControl2 first play


Todd Barton

"I'm just beginning to explore this amazing software. Here is the link to download it gratis: https://github.com/EmissionControl2/E...

And here are the specifics:
The Center for Research in Electronic Art Technology (CREATE) at UC Santa Barbara has released a new software app for sound granulation: EmissionControl2 for MacOSX, Linux, and Windows. EmissionControl2 is a granular sound synthesizer. The theory of granular synthesis is described in the book Microsound (Curtis Roads, 2001, MIT Press). Granular synthesis is one of the most important methods of sound design.

Features of the software include:
Granulation of multiple sound files simultaneously (up to 1 GB of samples can be loaded)
Supports up to 2048 simultaneous grains (limited by the user’s hardware)
Synchronous and asynchronous grain emission
Intermittency control
Per-grain signal processing (envelope, waveform, amplitude, frequency, spatial position, filter center frequency, and resonance)
Modulation control of all granulation parameters with six LFOs (bipolar or unipolar waveforms)
Real-time display of peak amplitude, grain counter, waveform, scan range, scanner, and grain emission
Scalable GUI and font size
MIDI Learn enables mapping to any MIDI continuous controller
Unlimited user presets with smooth interpolation for gestural design
Code is open source and available at GitHub
The new app was developed by a team consisting of Professor Curtis Roads acting as project manager, with software developers Jack Kilgore and Rodney DuPlessis. Kilgore is a Computer Science major at UC Santa Barbara. DuPlessis is a PhD student in Music Composition at UC Santa Barbara and is also pursuing an MS degree in Media Arts and Technology.

“Professor Roads and his team worked for 20 months on this outstanding project,” said Professor JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, Director of CREATE. “It is the ultimate granulator,” said Roads, who teaches electronic music at UC Santa Barbara and is also Associate Director of CREATE."

Sequential PRO3 & Strymon BigSky // You can't go wrong


Dexba

"Everything started when I was preparing a comparison video between the Sequential PRO 3 and the Moog Subsequent 37 (actually, Sub37, the one I own), so I put the PRO3 in 4-pole Ladder filter mode and everything went south. Or north, dunnou.
I know, I know, everything passing through a BigSky is gonna be awesome, maybe sometimes even a bit too much, because of the pedal's character.
But, I've never suspected how good it could be playing a very distorted and messy sound, not some ambient-y pluck like angel tears on cushions.
Here we are talking about 3 saw waves with overdrive, with distortion, with resonance, saturating a reverb: it is usually illegal to put reverb on a bassline.
But here we go, and the result was not-so-surprisingly good, like "I am gonna make an EP" kind of good.
As always, let's talk about our common synth disease in the comments, and most importantly:
Enjoy! ✨"

ALTAIR-231 SN 2863 3-OSC ANALOG SOVIET SYNTHESIZER



via this auction

"Monophonic synthesizer Altair 231 (Estradin factory, Zhitomir city) is intended to play different sounds from the imitation of natural instruments to complicated synthesized electronic timbres, sound effects, percussion sounds & so on. There are a four-octave keyboard & a wheel to pitch control. There are also controls for parameters on the front panel, an output for phones, an input for a pedal. The instrument consists of four main blocks of sound synthesis - Generator, Mixer, Filter and Contour.

Synthesis is based on 3 master oscillators (each of them with different parameters of registers) waveform, frequency modulation. There is also a generator of white & pink noise. Low-pass filter with main parameters gives the possibility for keyboard tracking. Portamento adjustment knob is provided. To tune a pitch the tone signal is used (440Hz) It provides a linear input to connct an external sound source to Altair. Output and input sockets are 1/4" jacks

Altair 231 is an almost identical copy of the famous Moog Minimoog, made in the former Soviet Union. Biggest difference in sound is caused by different brand of components: Russian equivalents are used everywhere.

The oscillator board is based on the older version. However, the Russians were clever and used multi-turn potentiometers for the scaling controls. Result: Synth stays in tune better. The Russians didn't seem to have reverse log pots. Because of that, the resonance control was wired backwards and a regular logarithmic pot was used instead. Other than that, the synth seems to be very robust and easy to service - the real Mini schematics come for good help when comparing the component numbers etc. It sounds like a Mini! I heard a Mini with the newer oscillator board and I think that's the reason for minor differences in sound between it and the Altair.

Klavis-Twin Waves MKII Dual VCO/LFO demo (no talking )


Dziam Bass

"Hi All.
Today I have a small demo with quite an extensive Twin Waves MKII module from Klavis
It is a really interesting Dual Oscillator with many functions, available algorithms, built-in quantizer, dual LFO, Through zero and linear FM ,and many other functions.
Basically at the beginning of the small demo waves, as you can see very quickly you can also get Super SAW.
then you have a few examples in sequence or modulation and for each I also used CalTrans for the perfect trace and for low transposition and the Mixwitch module in this case as a mixer with Quadigy -Quad Programmable Envelope Generator for modulation.
each patch of the 7 available is slightly different to show the versatility of the Twin Waves module.
For me this is Beast in small HP module.🔥🔥🔥
for example, some functions available from the module description."

Modal Skulpt: "Four by Fourteen" (+ Running Score)


Kris Lennox

"A while back I posted a piece on the OB-6, titled 'Six by Eighteen' i.e 6 voices, 18 beats in the bar. In this work, I'm embracing the 4-voice nature of the Skulpt, and writing in 14/16 time. Running score included to illustrate the 4 voices i.e if you can read music, you should be able to follow each line independently with the aid of the score.

Musically quite complex, in terms of rhythms. The central voices are playing a 4:3 Superparticular (i.e Geminus Sesquitertius).

In terms of the Skulpt: you're hearing 5 recordings. I made an initial recording with the Skulpt performing all 4 voices simultaneously (PS the Skulpt managed fine RE performing all 4 parts simultaneously), but from a compositional standpoint, it makes more sense to have a unique timbre for each voice. I re-recorded each voice (unison, as opposed to poly mode) with a unique timbre/patch I created.

The primary sound is still there - but part of the mix. However, everything you are hearing is the Skulpt (with the exception of standard production work i.e reverb, panning etc).

Enjoy/all best
Kris"

"Distings and Marbles generate a thing.

Disting Mk4(a) is the clock master Disting Mk4(b) creates Euclidean pulses.

DistingEX delivers the tabla samples. Plaits and Marbles combine to generate the lead. The SWN layers some shifting drone. And the Ensemble Oscillator delivers a mighty bass pulse (which you won't hear in any detail unless you use decent headphones or speakers)

It wasn't until later that I realised there are no filters used on this track. Can't say I missed them much."

Michael Jackson - Thriller (Synth Cover)


SyllixMusic

"This is my synth cover of Michael Jackson's Thriller. Every sound was created entirely on the Korg Minilogue analog synthesizer. This was a big project to take on, having to re-create the original song entirely from scratch and to get each sound as close to the original as possible. It definitely shows how versatile the Korg Minilogue is!

All synth sounds were created from scratch by me, on the Korg Minilogue. For the drums, I layered multiple single hit samples together to get the desired sound. It was a lot of trial an error!

I recorded each sound separately onto its own track in Logic Pro X. Once everything was tracked, it was mixed and mastered in Logic Pro X by me.

I hope you enjoy my synth cover of this wonderful song. Thanks for listening!

MAM - Music And More Next! VOX-11 Eleven Band Vocoder SN 020899



via this auction

"This Next VOX-11 Vocoder is in excellent condition. It has spent its life in my smoke free home where it was lovingly used on rare occasions. There are a couple of minor scratches on the side from putting it in the rack, but otherwise it is blemish free and fully operational.

The VOX-11 is an 11-band analog vocoder from German company (Music And More). A vocoder lets you create robotic vocal effects. You basically feed two sounds into it, the sound you want to process (Synthesis Input) such as a synth lead or synth pad, and the sound that will do the vocoding (Analysis Input) such as your voice or a drum loop.

The Analysis input has mono Mic and Line inputs. The signal you plug in here will be separated into 11-bands which cover a frequency range of 50Hz to 12kHz. The unique frequency spectrum of the analysis input sound will have different amplitudes at each of the 11 analysis bands. So a low frequency specific sound will generate lots of voltages in the low frequency bands, but very little to no voltages among the higher frequency analysis bands. The amount of voltages generated by these bands depends entirely on the harmonic content of the Analysis sound input.

Voltages generated by these analysis bands go on to control up to 11 Envelope Detectors on the Synthesis channel. The Synthesis channel is also split into 11-bands and each band passes through a VCA envelope controlled by these Envelope Detectors. The end result is that the Synthesis input's envelope is generated by the harmonic content of the Analysis input sound.

The VOX-11 has its very own, albeit very simple, analog VCO to use on the Synthesis channel in lieu of external audio. This oscillator offers only a sawtooth waveform with a simple pitch adjustment knob. Connecting a synthesizer or other harmonic rich sound source is preferred. The VOX-11 has only a mono output which can output the processed or unprocessed signals. The VOX-11 can also function as a filterbank! Plug a sound to the Synthesis channel, and nothing into the Analysis channel. Then you can adjust the gain of each of the 11 bands."

Moog Re-Introduces the Werkstatt-01 & CV Expander for $199


Moog Music Inc

"In this exploration of sound design and composition using the Werkstatt-01 analog synthesizer, Asheville-based electronic music producer and Moog Product Specialist Max Ravitz combines eight Werkstatt-01 synthesizers in a dynamic performance in the Moog Sound Lab.

Each of the eight Werkstatt-01 instruments provides a different element in the song ranging from booming kick drums to metallic hi-hats, and deep basses to wavering leads—many of which are based on the sounds found in the Werkstatt-01 Exploration Patchbook, which contains a variety of inspiring patches also designed by Ravitz. All eight Werkstatt-01 synthesizers in this performance are sequenced by the Winter Modular Eloquencer, with a touch of delay and reverb provided by the OTO Machines BIM and BAM to add dimension to the mix."

"Re-Introducing Werkstatt-01

Werkstatt-01 is a patchable and compact analog synthesizer. A gateway to the expansive world of analog synthesis, the instrument is a must-have for anyone interested in exploring classic Moog sound and circuitry through the unique, hands-on experience of a DIY synthesizer project. This affordable, easy-to-assemble kit requires no prior electronics experience and is a perfect afternoon (or Christmas morning) project.

The straightforward simplicity of Werkstatt-01’s design makes it an ideal jumping-off point to discover a limitless new world of analog sound design, and the included 3.5mm CV Expander makes it a no-brainer for everyone wishing to integrate the iconic Moog sound into their music. The 9" by 6" musical machine may be small, but the raw power and spectrum of the sound it produces is immense.

From Musical Exploration to Experimental Education

First introduced at Moogfest 2014 as part of the event’s Engineering Workshop, the Werkstatt-01 analog synthesizer has been admired as an essential introductory synth, a powerful standalone instrument, and an enhancement to any integrated electronic music ecosystem. Based on classic Moog circuitry, Werkstatt-01 was created to provide a hands-on understanding of how analog synthesizers work and encourage experimentation with sound through patching and interconnectivity.

The research and design that went into Werkstatt-01’s circuits, and the demand for more semi-modular exploratory analog instruments after its initial release, ultimately led to the development of some of today’s most expressive sound design machines: Mother-32, DFAM, Grandmother, Matriarch, and Subharmonicon.

More than a musical instrument, Werkstatt-01 has also served as an interactive educational tool in STEM curricula. The compact, versatile synthesizer has been the heart of the Georgia Tech Hackathon, a weekend-long competition that takes place each February at the Atlanta university’s Center for Music Technology, for six years and counting. The 2021 Georgia Tech Hackathon will be held virtually; see details here.

The easily mod-able analog synth kit has also proven to be a perfect learning ground for DIY modifications and the science of sound. This page of our website features a series of instructional videos to walk you through how to expand your instrument through breadboarding and arduino integration.

Classic Moog Sound & Circuitry

Werkstatt-01’s 100% analog circuits deliver the classic soul and futuristic sound Moog synthesizers are known for. Featuring a full-range analog oscillator with selectable waveforms for powerful sound and the legendary Moog Ladder Filter for precision harmonic sculpting, this instrument covers a vast expanse of sonic territory. Adding movement and modulation is as simple as engaging Werkstatt-01’s analog LFO circuit to simulate the motion of gently breathing waves, or crank up the LFO speed and summon cosmic laser beams. A two-stage analog envelope generator with sustain gives you control to shape dynamics, dialing in everything from lush electronic string swells to punchy basslines and organic percussion hits—and everything in between.

The included CV Expander allows you to enter the endless realms of modular synthesis, where new connections can be made and original sounds are unlocked. Patching inputs and outputs together from the 12 jacks of the 3.5mm patch bay will reconfigure Werkstatt-01’s circuits to create new signal paths and empower new sonic explorations. The included CV Expander also makes it easy to connect Werkstatt-01 to other Moog semi-modular synthesizers, Eurorack systems, or drum machines, enhancing any configuration with powerful analog sound."

And the press release (hi-res pics below):


"Modal Electronics creatively kickstarts new synthesiser series with COBALT8

– 8-Voice Extended Virtual-Analogue Synthesiser –

Bristol, UK: leading British synthesiser manufacturer Modal Electronics is proud to announce availability of COBALT8 — an immensely powerful, eight-voice extended VA (Virtual-Analogue) synthesiser that brings traditional and entirely new analogue-style sound textures to modern music creation and production as an innovative, sophisticated synthesis concept comprising two oscillator groups with selectable algorithms in self-contained elements enabling multiple oscillator modulations, an all-new 4-pole morphable ladder filter with switchable configurations, an unparalleled modulation engine, and much more besides, extending far beyond the limits of its analogue forefathers — as of October 29…

Creatively kickstarting a new synthesiser series by building on the tradition of warm and punchy analogue-style synth sounds seeded by bygone legendary synthesisers, COBALT8 creatively unlocks the full potential of analogue waveforms with up to 64 high-resolution VA oscillators with extended drift — up to eight for each of its eight true polyphonic voices. The two independent and self-contained Osc (oscillator) groups include sine, pulse, triangle, and sawtooth waveforms alongside 34 unique algorithms allowing for complex analogue synthesis techniques, built-in cross-modulation (sync, ring modulation, and more), PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), smooth morphing between VA waves, bit crushing, and filtered noise — unlike any other VA synthesiser before it, increasing creative options for new-generation synth sounds. Speaking of which, Algorithm1 and Algorithm2 each have an associated simple-to- use pair of controls — A1 and B1, A2 and B2 — chosen to suit the particular algorithm or character, providing musicians with the power of traditionally complex oscillator modulations or processes spontaneously.

Nosferatu Analog Synth Soundtrack


deitersmonkey

One for HALLOWEEN 🎃

"The world’s first cinema Vampire: 1922 FW Murnau’s silent film (Public Domain) with my own musical compositions using 40 year old analog synthesizers to augment the haunting, stylized German expressionist classic. There were many blown capacitors and broken pure silver key trigger wires along the way. This film was forced to be destroyed by Bram Stokers widow, due to the obvious plagiarism of 1897’s Dracula. It survived as copies were found in cinemas during the 60’s.

I have been working on this project for a very long time and the convergence of many themes of Nosferatu and 2020 inspired me to finish it off.

I respectfully approached this as my personal homage to all of the great electronic music pioneers of the 1970’s."

I recorded my KC1 direct using no effects or EQ. Hopefully this video should clear up some misinformation around the internet. This instrument is not a sample player or a synthesizer, it was never available to the public with illuminated buttons, and channel 3 is not even in the same ballpark as a "white noise effect".

I have to do a shout-out to a couple of scholarly gentlemen who wrote a book in 2019 that I highly recommend called "Classic Keys, Keyboard Sounds That Launched Rock Music". A few years ago I had my Keyboard Computer professionally photographed and a couple of those pictures were used in this book. Anyway this book is filled with a lot of very in-depth research and even recently won an award."

ST Modular - STEREO COMPRESSOR with Boba Fat, HH, Pyxis and Phoebe


Stefan Tretau



„Stereo Compressor“ is a classic analog feedforward compressor, which takes its sidechain split directly from the input signal. It is based on the THAT4305 Analog Engine® single-chip with integrated Blackmer® VCA. It has two independent signal paths in order to process stereo signals. The left input is normalized to the right, if you want to compress mono signals instead. The module has three controls and a switch:

THRESHOLD determins the level at which the compressor starts working. This can be set from -40dB to 20dB.
RATIO sets how much the compressor turns down the volume when the threshold is reached (INF:1 to 1:1).
GAIN regulates the amount of make-up gain (-20dB to +20dB) that is applied to the signal.
Additionally there is an ON/OFF switch that makes it easy to compare the dry and compressed audio signal.

Please note that if you turn THRESHOLD counter-clock wise to the left, you reduce the threshold from 20dB (fully cw) to -40dB (fully ccw). Hence the compressor starts working earlier. If you turn RATIO counter-clock wise to the left you increase the amount of compression from 1:1 (fully cw, no compression) to INF:1 (fully ccw, infinite compression). So turning the knobs down corresponds to compressing the signal. The pictures below show the knobs in a neutral position where no compression is applied.

STEREO COMPRESSOR has a similar design as the STEREO SUM CHANNEL modules. If you want to add some compression to your mix STEREO COMPRESSOR is a perfect addition to your STEREO SUM Mixer.
