"Audio demo of the Kermit MKIII from Industrial Music Electronics.
Every sound source comes from the Kermit MKIII only...... well except the Kick drum in the first patch that comes from the HDMKIII.

Main Tempo from DC1 Drumcomputer from Soundmachines
All Kermit MKIII's output channels goes to two Bionic Lester MKIII before going to Two Double andore MKII's VCA Audio input
Constant Kick with the Hertz Donut MKIII triggered by the DC1
Kermit MKIII's Preset CV is in trig random mode so each trig generates a random patch of the unit.
Bionic Lesters MKIII are also in Trig Random mode
Sequencing with Stillson Hammer MKII + Pressurepoints + Z8000

Kermit MKIII's preset CV and attenuater are in Morph
Each channels of the Kermit goes to Bionic Lester MKIII before going to the Evin 209 Matrix mixer.
2 mix of the Evin goes to the Tyme Sefari MKII for droning
1 mix goes to the Bionic Lester v1 for optimum bass booster and aliasing madness before going to the optomix for Kick Bass.
The last mix of the Evin goes to the Polyvok Filter ( VCF ) before going to the DAMKII for some click percussions.
Reverbs - EQ - Compressor - Filters with Ableton LIVE

Kermit Channel A for Audio
Kermit Channel B as envelope assigned to the Amplitude of channel A to act as VCA Env combo
Kermit Channel C modulate waveform of channel A
Kermit Channel D modulate the waveform of channel B
Stillson Hammer MKII for Sequencing Kermit's channel A and B
Kermit's channel A output is splitted to the Bionic Lester MKIII A input before the Tyme Sefari MKII then the Tyme Sefari MKII's output back to the Bionic Lester MKIII B input.
Using Stillson Hammer v1's gates to the A Sound Of Thunder and Bionic Lester MKIII's CV inputs.

I'll explain the lasts patch later I got to pee.........."

Arp Odyssey: "Busy City"

Published on Mar 7, 2020

"Short piece (MIDI) on the Arp. Full duophony. I recorded the full work 3 times: once as seen on the video, and two more times with the filter in a fixed position. Two other recordings were made: just the bass, and just the upper.

PS recording a work twice through is very common with synth recordings i.e once with the filter fixed for a strong bass, and the primary take with filter sweeps etc. It is especially common on synths where filter/resonance removes bass content (i.e the fixed filter recording maintains bass presence).


Gone In A Day

Published on Mar 7, 2020 davidryle

"I had some fun with INSTRUo Harmonaig and a few select 5U modules.

The modulation to the Harmonaig (Inversion and Voicing) was with a pair of STG Soundlabs Voltage Mini Store modules.

The main transpose sequence was from a Mini Sequencer built by Synthetic Sound Labs.

The pattern gate selection and VMS stepping were done with the STG Time Divider.

Some magic mojo was stirred in with the selection of dotted notes against straight notes. The Trigger Sequencer was the Moon Modular 563. It sent gate timings to the four voices run through the SSL Octal VCA and AD/AR Expander.

The four oscillators were a Mos Lab 901 bank, DDVCO, SSL 1200 and Q106.

Filters included Yusynth Arp 4072, Dotcom Q107 in high pass mode and Mos Lab 904-A.

The final reverb is the Z-DSP from TipTop Audio with a 'Halls of Valhalla' card."

Buchla Cosmic Drone - Session 13 - Modular Drone Music Performance

Published on Mar 7, 2020 The Galaxy Electric

"Thanks for listening! Come on a musical voyage with us where we'll send you a new song every day, a cosmic story, and a chance to earn space treasure:

Relax and tune into our live weekly improvised Drone Sessions. This thirteenth session involves a drone featuring two independent Buchla style complex and modulation oscillators starting in tune a couple octaves apart. As the oscillator frequencies drift apart by way of manual control, beating ensues. Listening to droning oscillators can serve as mindfulness sounds as there is no sudden changes in sound. Just smooth drifts in pitch and the resulting beat frequencies. Drones can also serve as an ambient track to have on while doing tasks that require intense focus. Drones are also great for a Sci-fi film soundtrack. The slow yet progressive nature of a drone performance can help one focus on tasks without distraction. The fact that we are manipulating these oscillators live and in collaboration helps the drone meander ever so smoothly in an evolving fashion as we are always reacting to one another's subtle movements. These movements are improvised so there is an unrehearsed and reactive ebb and flow to the tones generated. Engage in the practice deep listening with us.

The electronic music instruments used in this performance of modular drone music are the Buchla Music Easel, and a small system involving a Buchla clone model 259 Programmable Complex Waveform Generator, Buchla 292h Dual Lowpass Gate, and 281h Dual Function Generator in the Buchla LEM Powered 3 Boat.

Roland JX-03 Synthesizer, The Virtual Program Expander - PE 002

Published on Mar 7, 2020 Robert Ch

"After the GP-002 for the Roland JX-03 Synthesizer I made this new Virtual Extension. The PE-002 unit: So what if your JX-03 had an external unit to store more presets. Will it look like this? 3x 32 preset that’s 96 extra (so 112 in total (16+96)). Made it just for fun.

So they don’t exist in the real world. Only virtual!

RDS-80 DIY analogue drumbox demosong - Jazz-style

Published on Mar 7, 2020 Stereoping

"Another Test-/Demosong for a #DIY #drumbox project. Bringing together a drumvoices-PCB labeled RSD-80 of a #Yamaha #D-85 and a wooden case i had left over from an unsuccessful earlier project. The RDS-80 (i know, swapped letters, to late) wants 12V DC and Midi notes on channel 8. No controls, just nice status LEDs for the -12V and +5V power lines. I've put 3 LEDs of different color beneath the metalgrid which start to flicker with the triggered sounds, shown to the beginning. After 1:30 the picture show ends, followed by the #FL-Studio arrangement grid progress. Music this time: electronic #JAZZ. Further gear: Akai MPC-1000 for some helping drums (starting 2:58) and the Roland #Integra-7 for Ride, Guitar, E-Piano, solo Trumpet and Acoustic bass."

Synthberry Pi: Tutorial II - OSC Remote control

Published on Mar 7, 2020 Artis Lab

"SynthBerry Pi is the prototype of a standalone synthesizer based on the Raspberry Pi mini computer and the Pure Data development environment. The prototype is equipped with a control surface made up of eight potentiometers connected to the computer which allow to modify, in real time, the control parameters of the sound generation processes. Furthermore, by using the wireless connectivity of the mini computer, the Pure Data patches can be controlled by sending Open Sound Control (OSC) messages from devices such as tablets or smartphones.

For more information on SynthBerry Pi visit this link:

The video shows the remote control of a Pure Data patch based on Open Sound Control messages over the wireless network. On the phone we have chosen to use an application called Control which provides graphic interfaces equipped with objects which, in response to user actions, send OSC messages through the wireless connection.

For this demo we used a Pd patch that is based on a subtractive synthesis system. The patch consists of a white noise generator and four fourth-order bandpass filters. The eight potentiometers of the control surface allow to control, for each filter, the center frequency and the quality factor (Q). The filters have been tuned to operate in different frequency regions from the lowest, the pair of potentiometers on the left, up to the highest on the right.

Two interfaces have been developed in Control to change the parameters of the Pd patch which creates the subtractive synthesis system. The first interface is something similar to a mixer, since it makes possible to separately change the volume and position of the stereo panning of each of the four filters through the use of a widget that implements a multitouch interface. The vertical dimension of the graphic object has been associated with the volume control of each filter, while the horizontal direction allows the user to control the panning between the left and right channels.

The second interface has four buttons that allow the user to choose four different settings for the range of variation of the filter frequencies. The frequency value of the four filters is controlled by the position of the corresponding potentiometer by means of a mapping process in a well-defined frequency range defined by a maximum and minimum value. Each button of the Control interface recalls a different configuration in the patch for the extreme values (maximum and minimum) of the frequency regions in which the interpolation is carried out. Furthermore, by positioning the potentiometers all up or all down, it is possible to obtain precisely the values of the filter frequencies set for the different presets."

OlllAudio-Minimoog Transistor Ladder Filter and 2 x Minimod-Vintage Transistor Core VCO-AJHSynth

Published on Mar 7, 2020 Dziam Bass

"Hello Guys!

Today I have a small demo of a great filter from OlllAudio Eurorack Modules !

This is a clone of the Minimoog Transistor Ladder Filter and it sounds really massive so for Audio source use 2 X Minimod-Vintage Transistor Core VCO from AJHSynth.

This is a famous analog filter for modular synthesizers, the scheme was created in the 70s by Robert Arthur Moog (Moog company).

This clone from OIIIAUDIO is built on transistors and using the chips of that time (!) And Stiroflex capacitors (optionally), which gives the sound a vintage charm and uniqueness (the initiates understand what it's about)."
