Korg Arp Odyssey: "7 by 2" (Full Duophony)

Published on Jan 12, 2020 Kris Lennox

"Something for the Arp, given Korg's announcement RE the 2600. If the Odyssey is anything to go by, the 2600 will be something else. In saying that, the Odyssey is a very special synth in its own right. Finding a synth with such a strong bass is certainly a challenge. If looking for a great bass synth, I'd strongly recommend the Odyssey.

The duophony on the Odyssey is interesting in the sense that if you play a note and then play a 2nd note/voice multiple times, this note re-triggers the 1st note/voice. For some, this is a limitation - but it doesn't necessarily have to be seen as such.

Musically/compositionally, this is what is known as "1st Species Counterpoint" - which, in simple terms, is music written with a 1:1 rhythmic ratio (species counterpoint is primarily a description of rhythmic relationships). So, no 2nd species/3rd species/florid counterpoint etc possible on the Oddy - but this limitation allows for creative exploration of 1st species counterpoint.

I see this similar to the likes of early computer game music, where voices were very restricted. Despite the voice limitation, many great soundtracks were crafted.

The included is in 7/16, and initially sounds like only one idea/line, before gradually morphing into two independent voices. I'm treating each voice as multiple voices, hence the sound is possibly 'bigger' than what is commonly imagined with duophony.

MIDI sent from DAW to synth.

Atomosynth Mochika 2 - Analog synthesizer sequencer

via this auction

"A very fun and versatile analog sequencer! Atomosynth is a boutique brand, located in Lime, Peru.


This synth features one analog square and saw waveform VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) with a huge pitch range, from subsonic to ultrasonic sound.

One square and triangle waveform LFO (low frequency oscillator), that modulates the VCO for the vibrato effect creating old school arcade Atari-like sounds.

White noise generator that triggers the VCO and can create percussion like sounds.

8 step Sequencer with note on/off switch and pitch knob for each step

It features a 1/4 inch audio output, 1/4 inch CV Output (to control other analog gear).

The Mochika2 features a MIDI input to sync the Mochika with any midi device sending midi clock signals, the mochika can sync 1, 2, 4 and up to 8 times the tempo of the master clock midi device, also it can be used as a midi to gate converter to sync other analog gear using the CV output of the Mochika2.

Also the instrument is ligthed with 1 bright red led that indicates the LFO Rate, and 8 red leds to indicate the step that is being played. Very useful when you play it on a dark stage.

The Analog Sequencer is packed in a cool laser cut clear acrilic case that shows all the hand made analog circuitry.

The instrument is powered directly from 110V or 220V AC.

Dimensions: 230mm(W), 170 mm(D), 80mm(H. incuded rubber feet and knobs)"

New Blue Lantern BLM Arcade Kick Drum Eurorack Module

via this auction

"Model: BLM Arcade Kick

Width: 10hp

Current: +30mA,-24mA

What does this do?

This product is used to produce drum and percussion sounds. You can make 909 type of kick drums. The toggle switch on the left chooses between long and short vca decay. The toggle switch on the left chooses long and short pitch envelope decay. Smack knob control lefts you mix in a noise 'paper' sound for the drum.

-There is onboard distortion to get techno type of kick drums.

-This internal oscillator is triangular core, with internal reset.

-The internal trigger conditioner can take audio rate frequencies.

-There is a manual push button.

Why is there two trigger inputs?

You can mix in two trigger sources to create complex percussion patterns. The internal circuit is using logic 'OR' triggering.

This product was refined for optimum sound and response from the controls. Part values were changed from the original 909 design. This is not a clone.

Price: $165.00"

Drone On Sunday - Spartan analog 2-voice Eurorack Improvisation

Published on Jan 12, 2020 DreamsOfWires

"Very simple impromptu recording. Low bass frequency advisory - much of it will be lost in the compression process, but decent headphones or speakers recommended. All sounds AJH Synth Eurorack Modular system, with EOS2 reverb.

Drone sound: 1 VCO into Wave Swarm and Ring SM generating 3 octaves, then into Fixed Filter Bank 914. Sound of Wave Swarm gradually introduced via Ring SM's mixer.

Melody: 2 detuned VCO's into Transistor Ladder Filter.

Noise Engineering Sinc Bucina

Published on Jan 12, 2020 CatSynth TV

"Demo of the Sinc Bucina from Noise Engineering, which combines a simple envelope with an VCA/VCF in a single 4HP unit. We explore its various modes and use in context with sequencers and other modules.

'Sinc Bucina is the sequel to one of our first modules, Sinclastic Empulatrix, replacing the clamping VCA with a resonant lowpass VCF and VCA combo. The velocity-dependent Ping input offers classic release-only LPG behavior, while the Gate in offers much more complex slewing, useful for simple ASR envelopes to dynamic modulation. The envelope out allows the internal envelope to be routed out into a patch for even more versatility and modulation fun.'"

Hobo Fiddle + Modular Synthesizer

Published on Jan 12, 2020 poorness studios

"I was just messing around with my Hobo Fiddle this morning and I decided to plug it into my modular synthesizer. It sounded good so I recorded a short clip of it. This wasn't a piece per se, just some plunkin' around.

I used a sine wave drone on the modular and processed everything through MI clouds. It ended up sounding pretty cool.

You can see the Hobo Fiddle build video here"

Roland JP08 Boutique

"This listing is for a Roland Boutique JP-08. This was our third JP-08 module purchased for our studio to poly chain with our other two JP-08 modules. Unfortunately we never got around to trying the idea and this JP-08 has remained in its box since the day we received it.

This unit was only removed from its box and tested to make sure all the functions work prior to this listing. It has not been used otherwise for any recording or production. This item will be shipped to you in the exact immaculate condition as shown in the many pictures we have taken of this unit which is rather gorgeous to look at once you turn it on and see the faders light up.

*Yes it also includes the factory batteries from Roland so you can have fun right out the box!"

KORG WAVESTATION EX - Sounds, Presets & Ambient Soundscapes | Synth Demo

Published on Jan 12, 2020 synth4ever

"Demo of the Korg Wavestation EX digital vector / wavesequencing synthesizer. This Korg Wavestation EX synth demo features various sounds, presets, pads, textures, wavesequences and ambient soundscapes.

Released in 1990, the Korg Wavestation is an advanced vector synthesis synthesizer which allows for morphing of sounds between four points via the joystick. It also features wavesequencing, which enables short segments of sampled audio to be played sequentially and cross-faded into each other for more complex sounds.

The Korg Wavestation is well known for creating lush ambient pads, soundscapes, cinematic sounds, textures and strange effects. It also features a digital filter, multi-effects and enables you to get deep into sound editing, although there is a lot of menu-diving involved.

In 1991 Korg released the upgraded Wavestation EX, which added 150 more waveforms (4MB) including acoustic instruments and drums, plus 8 additional multi-effects: Mod Pitch Shift-Delay, Stereo Compressor-Limiter/Gate, Vocoder, Overdrive and Distortion effects, transposable keyboard and MIDI implementation and control.

In 2020, Korg announced the Wavestate, which is the successor to the Wavestation and features more hands-on control via knobs, more functionality, and upgraded wavesequencing with full control of each parameter. The Korg Wavestate expands on the Korg Wavestation's heritage in a significant way, and brings it into the modern era.

Nonetheless, Korg Wavestations can still be found for decent prices on the second-hand market, and still sound great to this date. If you are interested in cinematic sounds, ambient music, pads, and lush soundscapes, the Korg Wavestation is certainly worth considering."
