CMS 2607 Demo - Beat Patch

Uploaded on Dec 31, 2016 precarious333

Similar to this 2600 piece. The video above is from 2016. You can find CMS 2607 posts including recent demos from CMS / Phil Cirroco here.

"Patch is 2607 only. No external input or CV.
Kick is the filter self-oscillating with VCO 3 saw wave modulated by the ADSR mixed in.

Snare/HH thing is noise through the Ring Mod in VCA mode.
ADSR is triggering both sounds, which are fed into the two inputs of the switch with the main clock switching between them. Both are playing every beat but because of the switch you only hear every other hit.

Base is VCO 1 saw wave modulated by the same ADSR, so falling on both the up and down beat. Patched through the lag processor (fourth horizontal slider) which works as a low pass filter on audio.

Tinkly sound is VCO 3 sine wave frequency modulated by VCO 1 with Sample/Hold supplying random pitched notes. Then run through processor two (third horizontal slider) which I manually switch between normal and the Post Filter Distortion circuit from the ARP Centaur.

Processor section one (top 2 horizontal sliders) is being used to mix the base and tinkly sounds to send to the VCA section where both envelopes work to shape the volume through both linear and exponential inputs.

Output of switch and VCA routed to the final mix stage with spring reverb into the unity gain input. This works great since reverb has it's own gain control at source.

Recorded as a mono track into Ableton Live 8. Compression used to keep things in check."

Magellan Synthesizer 2 - Pro Analog Modeling Synth

Published on Feb 23, 2020 YonacSoftware

"Available now:

A classic is reborn! With its introduction nearly a decade ago, Magellan pushed the boundaries of iOS technology and quickly took its place among the platform’s most popular synths. Continuing this pedigree, Yonac’s flagship Magellan Synthesizer 2 is a new alchemy of pristine sounds, innovative features, and devotion to user friendliness — all the same preserving the wicked soul of the original.

Cutting-edge synthesis technology, punchier tones, warmer filters, greater modulation options, AUv3, MPE, brand-new presets: these are just a few of Magellan’s features for a whole new era."

THE iNEViTABLE by itijik | Pro Club 0220

Published on Feb 23, 2020 itijik

"Dark vibes, texture, big sound...a little creepy. Can't help but have these dark pieces come out. I'm working with both Fvrewell and Ypsi Kid on two separate dark projects. Different ideas, but I think some of the vibe crosses over. If either of you are feeling these more than the private ones I sent you, let's run with it.

The club get's the "MASTER'D" version with my idea of how to shape the sound. If you're a club member, I'll get you the raw audio if you think you'll use it for something.


Synthimuse SN 00016

"The original idea for the SynthiMuse was to design a ‘Sample/Hold’ module for analog synthesizers.

This module is traditionally used to generate truly random notes that have no connection to musical scales.

We decided from the start that it had to be based on a genuine noise source and it was also necessary was to have the ability to play random notes in musical scales.

As well as this, must have a traditional analog control panel.
No LCDs.
No Menus.
No encoder wheels

Rather than have it generate just voltages for an analog synth, we realised that if was implemented it using a microcontroller, it could become a product with a wider appeal outside of the analog synthesizer domain.
We decided to make it able to generate MIDI data that could drive modern synths and Music Workstations.

The design has been evolutionary. We considered everything that the basic note generation could be extended to do and we implememented as much functionality while adhering to the feel and accessibility of an analog control panel.

From these efforts, the final design started to take shape and the scope of it widened to become the SynthiMuse that we have now."

Midimini V30: Monosynth/Polysynth

Published on Feb 23, 2020 StudioElectronics

"Greg St. Regis suggested I abandon my long form addiction, and parse out more digestible bits, and so I have. An added benefit: I have cherry-picked elements which don’t actually talk to each other in the normal course of business—in Part 4 (see below).

Part 1: Paraphonic, DAW multitracked chords, and single zone sample stretches—why do they sound so good in DP10’s Nanosampler?—are the focus here… well there is a slush/smush of everything actually (Including analog percussion & FX), although in Part 2 the emphasis will be on the bass and the wicked lines we make.

OK, we’ve covered Part 2.

Part 3: Iso leads and their deliciousness.

Part 4, you ask? My long form habit—the complete piece—which is decidedly more concise than usual.

Sometimes it’s hard to wrap my mind around how outstanding this V30 sounds. The gain staging: Oscillator levels, AMP DRIVE, FEEDBACK, Feedback Gain (FBK GAIN), and the final OUT stage, make for a vast and yet intimate micro-climate of tone, warmth and dirty, usually reserved for guitar players and their axes, amps, and pedals (lovers too). Slide on over instruments with necks; the Midimini V30 has its eyes on your prize.

And the patch points which can go #OutsToOuts keep it pushing and pulsing well beyond the call of duty.

reSEMble 2 VCO

Published on Feb 23, 2020 Randy Piscione

"Demo of a partially-built reSEMble panel. Some live noodling and knob turning. Not sure I can still concentrate on two things at once (playing and turning knobs). I have left out the 3rd VCO and the Shaper (ring mod and folder). You can choose to build it like this, at least to start, and save some time and some money. The bass was recorded earlier, using the lower row of modules, which are the separate versions of those behind reSEMble."

Lorax - Eurorack, MicroFreak, Neutron, VCV Rack, O Coast

Published on Feb 23, 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 also the VCV Rack patch file - Extra Patch - Lorax

Here are some patch notes:
- The Morphagene is playing a sample of a field recording I got from a friend.
- I have a sort of a pad sound built on the MicroFreak, and it's going through LedRover for some crunch and it goes also into VCV Rack for some reverb and delay.
- I've recorded a piano from Felt Instruments into the Magneto in looper mode.
- I also have a recording of my flute on Arbhar, and I'm using its built-in reverb.
- In VCV Rack, I have some drums programmed, and they go through ReduXer and Microcell in Beat Repeat mode for some glitchy sounds.
- The O Coast is being sequenced by the Keystep, and it's going through the Mimeophon.
- The Neutron is sending 2 waves to Freak from Vult, and from there is goes to some delay and reverb. It's being sequenced from within VCV Rack also.
- The Keystep is set to Kbd Play so I can play another voice in VCV Rack on a different Midi channel.
- There's also a kick drum coming from VCV Rack.
- I'm also sending the clock from VCV Rack and splitting it to clock the Keystep, clock the O Coast, and clock the Mimeophon. "

Vermona '14/Hildegard von Bingen: "O Quam Mirabilis Est"

Published on Feb 23, 2020 Kris Lennox

"Hildegard's wonderful 'O Quam Mirabilis Est', here performed on the Vermona '14. A while back I filmed the recording of this work, but the visual was, I felt, a distraction from the music. Hands-only and/or just an image, I feel, works better.

All Gregorian Chant works I've posted I've also scored. Medieval notation is very different from standard notation, and has to be studied as an independent subject. My plan is to release the sheet music in standard notation once the volume of works posted reaches an adequate number.

"Roland SH-1000 Synthesizer - Vintage Analogue Synth - Pristine cosmetic condition

Comes complete with original Roland music rest lead and UK plug, and original Roland instruction manual.

This has been in my family sibnce purchased around 1976. It was bought by my parents to accompany their Hammond home organ. It was never used as they found it complicated and so they purchased another synth: a Roland SH2000 ( see my other auction) which saw limited use.

As a result this synth is effectively new as it has been stored ever since first in my parents house and latterly in my house. I believe this must be an almost unique item in this condition after all these years"

Comes complete with original Roland music rest lead and UK plug, and original Roland instruction manual.

This has been in my family sibnce purchased around 1976. It was bought by my parents to accompany their Hammond home organ. It has been used in my parents house only and never gigged or used by anyone outside of the family. They purchased it to replace a Roland SH-1000 which they found too complicated ( see my other auction for the SH-1000)

As a result this synth is in excellent condition with only some minor marks and wear visible on the master volume markings (see photo).

it has effectively been mothballed in my parents house since around 1987 and more latterly in my house until now. I really have no use for either synth and feel sure someone will be able get some great sounds and enjoyment out of it hence the reluctant sale"
