NAMM 2020: Korg Arp 2600 FS Sounds

Published on Jan 21, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"Korg's ARP 2600 FS is one of the best-received synth announcements in some time: an authentic recreation of one of the greatest synthesizers of all time.

ARP's 2600 shook the synthesis world when it was first introduced: it provided all of the convenience of a fixed architecture synth, but with considerably greater sonic breadth than possible with its competitors. By combining all the best aspects of a modular synth with all the best aspects of a fixed synth, the 2600 captured the imagination of countless musicians of all styles.

The ARP 2600 FS is an exact recreation of the original 2600, adding selectable filter type, MIDI input, XLR outputs, keyboard aftertouch, and an integrated arpeggiator/sequencer. Bringing one of the most beloved synths of all time into the present, Korg's 2600 is an absolute pleasure to see and hear."

NAMM 2020: Korg Wavestate Sounds

Published on Jan 21, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"Korg's Wavestate revisits the sounds of the 1990s Wavestation, bringing wave sequencing and vector synthesis into the 2020s.

The Wavestate features four "oscillators" per voice—oscillators which scan wave shapes from an enormous bank of PCM sounds. By sequencing the order of waveforms per oscillator, effects ranging from smooth wavetable shifting to all-out percussive soundscapes can unfold, leaving the Wavestate with an uncommonly large sonic range. Not bound to the sounds possible with simple oscillators, the Wavestate's advanced options for waveform sequencing and modulation make it a perfect choice for animated textures, rich soundscapes, and deep, cinematic pads.

Wavestate is expected to ship soon, so expect to hear more brooding, undulating soundscapes and peculiar timbral sequences on the horizon.

Virus C meets Octatrack, with Roland TR8S

Published on Jan 21, 2020 Brittle stR music

"The loops in the Octatrack are all sounds from Access Virus C. After all this time, it's still a top synth! Drums from the TR8S, with samples cooked up using various hard and soft synths, including the 'guiro' loop which is from Waldorf Nave on my iPad.

Both melodic sequences are Virus patches where random arpeggiator patterns are selected within the modulation matrix. This makes the arp sound like an improvisation in a way that a repeated single pattern never could."

Synthesizer Demo by Rik Marston
***Watch in HD!!*** ***Turn it UP!!*** ***No Talking!!!***

Korg Minilogue + Volca Beats Dream Sequence Jam!
This is the "Kraftwerk Mix" because of it's awesome
"Computer World" feel. I am syncing the Minilogue OUT
to the Volca Beats IN but still triggering manually.
I just ordered a Roland JP-08 Boutique to add to this
little synthesizer setup. I'll buy a 2nd one for the 8 voice
poly chain. After that it's a Korg Volca FM & I'll be happy!
Reverb added to the Minilogue from my Alesis Multimix 4.

Recorded into Ableton LIVE! ;)

'If I Were An Eagle' by Mark Heathcote
If I could soar above all my inherent problems
And fly like an eagle where should I nest
Every place I would seek to rest has problems
The wind is either too strong-or-light
The cliff tops are a slither of a knife
The tree is too low or waving too high
That even as an eagle, I might suffer vertigo.
You see this is the problem wherever you go
Do I fly South, East, West or North?
If I could soar above all my inherent problems
And fly like an eagle where should I nest
I guess here right back in your arms would be best."

Granular Synthesis and Test Equipment Soundpack for Audio Damage Quanta

Published on Jan 21, 2020 HAINBACH

"In which I talk about the sound pack for the Audiodamage Quanta Granular Synthesizer I made from test equipment sounds.

Chris Randall of Audio Damage saw my video on the Princeton Applied Research 124A Lock-In Amplifier [2:10 here] and was impressed: he asked me if I could make a pack on basis of that machine for their synth Quanta, and I was more than happy to do that. Granular synthesis has been an old love of mine, it was even part of my masters exam back in University. Combining the test equipment with the granular tools was a perfect fit, and I was so happy with the pack that I incorporated it in my live and travel setup. In the video I describe the process, talk a bit about Quanta and go into the context of how I use these sounds personally.

Get the pack:

E520 Hyperion Processor + Yamaha W5 = Ambient Space Music | "Indigo Ray" by Moot Booxle

Published on Jan 21, 2020 mootbooxle

"Let's go to OUTER SPACE! The Shimmer reverb on the #E520HyperionProcessor from #SynthesisTechnology can take any sound to outer space, but it's especially nice when it's sweetening an already lush pad.

This sound I've come up with on the forgotten 90's ROMpler, the Yamaha W5, is gorgeous on its own...With the E520 it's otherworldly!

Take a little quiet time, still the mind, vibe out to this #ambient soundscape! I thank you for listening!"
