Closing Out NAMM with a New Instrument

via Synth Addict

"Last day at NAMM 2020 with all the gear I need, plus a new acoustic friend just for fun and sampling.

An amazing but exhausting show.
I pretty much saw everything.
Probably a total of 30 miles of walking over 4 days."

Surfing the Waldorf Kyra at NAMM 2020

Published on Jan 19, 2020 Red Means Recording

"I touched Waldorf's Kyra for the first time at NAMM 2020. This is that footage.

I'm honestly not really feeling this synth. It feels like it wants to and could be a modern Virus TI but this was the synth I struggled most with in terms of interface and tweaking. There are some really important controls not on the front panel and I didn't like the menu system.

I think there's a very powerful synth under the hood here, but I didn't enjoy playing it that much."

Surfing The Korg Wavestate at NAMM 2020

Published on Jan 19, 2020 Red Means Recording

"I touched a Korg Wavestate for the first time at NAMM 2020. I liked it quite a bit. It's like a mini workstation with 2.0 GB of PCM data that can be stacked and sequenced in wild ways.

Here's the footage of me surfing presets and making tweaks while playing. It's a little raw, but there are some really fun moments.

I want one. Please, Korg, notice me."

Surfing the ASM Hydrasynth at NAMM 2020

Published on Jan 19, 2020 Red Means Recording

"I touched an ASM Hydrasynth for the first time at NAMM 2020. I like it a lot. It's very well laid out and sounds really good. I REALLY like the arp patch at the end.

Here's the footage of me surfing presets and making tweaks while playing.

When you see me not playing and being bothered it's because Mylar Melodies was next to me doing a video for Future Music and wouldn't stop talking to me. Dammit."

At the NAMM show this year they are releasing the Sonicware Liven which is a 4 voice digital synth with 4 different synth engines. 2 of the engines are directly taken from the ELZ-1 and 2 are completely new."

Arbhar from Instruo - First Patch

ublished on Jan 19, 2020 Omri Cohen

"If you like what I do and want to support my work, consider joining my crew on Patreon -

You can get the WAV file and Stems on my Patreon page -
And the VCV Rack patch file -

Here are some patch notes:
- I'm recording to the different buffers of Arbhar using its internal contact mic, and Arbhar is going through the Mimeophon.
- I'm sending the trigger output of Arbhar to trigger the Mimeophon so there's a change in the Mimeophon's clock rate.
- The trigger output of the Mimeophon is triggering its Flip function, and I'm also splitting the EOSG of the Morphagene once to trigger the Hold function of the Mimeophon, and once to trigger the grains on the Microcell.
- I'm also sending S&H from VCV Rack to modulate the Zone and Rate of the Mimeophon.
- With the Keystep, I'm playing chords from a voice in VCV Rack, which is going through Chronoblob 2 and reverb.
- I have my Zoom recorder connected to the Morphagene, and with it I'm recording my flute.
- The Morphagene is going to the Microcell in granular mode, and its CV output is modulating the grain size so the louder the sample, the bigger the grain size.
- I'm sending S&H from VCV Rack to modulate the Gene Size and Slide, and I'm sending another S&H from VCV Rack to trigger the Hold function of the Microcell.
- I have another voice in VCV Rack, this arp, that I'm playing also with the Keystep, but on a different Midi channel, and I'm controlling its level with the VCMC.
- After recording to all 6 buffers on Arbhar, I'm switching to the Omega position and another S&H from VCV Rack is scanning through the buffers.
- All of the S&H modules in VCV Rack are being triggered by random triggers.

You can get VCV Rack here -"
