Jupiter-X vs. System-8: The Jupiter-8 Engine *No Talking*

Published on Mar 8, 2020 MR TUNA Music

"Its the showdown you've been waiting for! Two amazing synths, both vying for the number one spot of King Jupiter Clone..... but which will reign supreme? How will we even know without a real JP-8 to compare against? Perhaps this is all in vain. Perhaps we've all wasted our time. But maybe, just maybe, the debate between these two synthesizers is more than an age old question... more than the sum of their sounds. Is it wrong to love two synths? Is it beautiful to appreciate their differences? Or to stare into the mirror and see not yourself, but all of your possibilities and potentials like a trillion different realities folding onto each other like thin sheets of metal forming a single blade??

This is Jupiter vs. Jupiter. Or IS IT????"

No Place to rest my Head - Felt Instruments, Eurorack, DrumBrute, VCV Rack, O Coast

Published on Mar 8, 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 for this piece on my Patreon page -

Here are some patch notes:
- I'm sequencing the O Coast with the Keystep, and I'm splitting the gate output to trigger the O Coast and also to clock it.
- With the synced random voltage of the O Coast, I'm modulating its decay time, and also the envelope time of the cycling envelope, which modulated the multiply.
- I'm also sending pink noise to its FM input.
- The O Coast is going into the Onset input of Arbhar, which is recording the O Coast and processing it.
- I have a piano from Felt Instruments recorded into Magneto, which is going through LedRover for some extra grit, and from there to Microcell in Granular mode.
- I'm triggering the revers function of Magneto with random triggers from VCV Rack.
- I have a drum loop recorded into Morphagene, but also playing live on the DrumBrute so it's nice and glitchy.
- Morphagene is then going through ReduXer, and its CV output is modulating the reduction amount, and in VCV Rack, it goes through a phaser.
- I'm also modulating the Gene Size, Slide, and Varispeed with the 1U Noise Tools module.
- I have another instrument from Felt Instruments playing unsynced tremolo into the Mimeohpon.
- Also there, I trigger the flip function with random triggers from VCV Rack.
- I have white noise going into Freak set to the Vortex filter, and from there it's going into the Disting in reverb mode.
- I'm modulating the cutoff point of both channels with random voltage coming from VCV Rack.
- From there, the signal goes into Chronoblob 2 in VCV Rack and creates those bubbly glitchy sounds."

Novation Circuit - Endurance

Published on Mar 7, 2020 Payton Carter

"I'm a terrible guitarist (see the end of the video), but I'm slightly less terrible when I can cut out the half-decent parts! For this jam, I noodled around on my guitar for about five minutes with some chords in mind. I then chopped up the samples in Reaper and imported them into the Circuit. I'm playing the guitar samples on drum track 4 with the sample flip feature. The synth patches are from Cuckoo's complete Circuit pack, and the drum samples are from the factory Circuit pack."

Moog Cp-251 and Korg X-911 guitar synthesizer, Sunday Morning fun

Published on Mar 8, 2020 Expanding Sound

"There's no real purpose for this video, other than me just having a little fun with these two pieces of gear this morning. The Korg X-911 [X911] is a vintage guitar synthesizer pedal. You can do quite a lot of different things with it. Here, I used the Moog Cp-251 control processor to create a rhythmic filter sweep, similar to a wah pedal, and just played a little chord pattern. Then I used a keyboard sustain pedal in the X-911's hold input to keep the trigger open. When you are in VCO mode it doesn't change notes with you though, so it can give you kind of funny results sometimes. My guess is because the trigger in VCO mode uses tracking, and it only tracks one note per trigger. It'd be awesome if there was a release time knob for the trigger, it would help the trigger release sound a lot more natural. That's why you hear the note cut out once or twice. It was still a lot of fun though!"

Sequential Circuits Pro One SN 8004

via this auction

"It sounds amazing and plays great. Had it serviced December 2018 (see service receipt in photographs). You can see the cosmetic details in the photographs. The serial number is 8004 (below 8500), which means it has the more desirable j-wire keyboard. The serial number is above 1500, which means the main power supply is not mounted to the circuit board (also a desirable feature).

The Pro One is very patchable and configurable (thanks to its robust modulation section). There are worlds of tones in it: classic 80s, but also loads of experimental tones. Has Gate In/Out, CV In/Out, and dedicated Filter CV In, so it plays well with external modules and audio sources."

7 03 20 Scrotum Lab - Impro

Published on Mar 8, 2020 batchas

"Improvising using Grilles/Radio Music modules and Batchas samples from old unreleased recordings. I'm choosing the samples randomly. Because it's fast (plug'n'play), but also because I like it this way: most of the time something unexpected comes out.

I'm using the H9 presets, as it's fast too and does not need preparation.

Camera battery empty at the end. So I added a video made on the smartphone of outside the house.

This video took a day to upload. Orange in some parts of France is a disgrace."
