Track: 1989 - Synthwave (Digitone, Yamaha EX5, Novation PEAK, ZOOM R24)

Published on Mar 10, 2020 Floyd Steinberg

A new track from supporting member, Floyd Steinberg.

"Here's a #synthwave song made on the #digitone , #yamahaex5 and #novationpeak

The synth parts were recorded realtime, as can be seen in the video. Guitar and vocals were added later on the #zoomr24 , where it was also mixed and mastered. All synthesizers are recorded as they are, using their internal effects only. My vocals were processed through a TC-100 Talk Box, then a MS100-BT ("Drive Delay"), then a slapback delay (Source Audio Nemesis) and a Nonlinear Reverse Reverb (Strymon BigSky). The rythm guitar is a VOX Starstream, Humbucker pickup, through a Strymon Sunset pedal."

Dave Smith Instruments Mopho SE

via this auction

"What was once a tiny yellow box with a lot of analog attitude, grew up to be a sleek black keyboard with way more hands on control and the same great sound. This monosynth was essentially a single voice from the Prophet 08 (hard to believe that was 12 years ago already!) with 2 analog VCOs each with a sub oscillator fed into the classic Curtis Lowpass Filter (switchable between 2 and 4 pole)"

The Human Comparator TTSH (Arp 2600 Clone) Semi-Modular Synth Rev 2

via this auction

"There is a lot of talk right now about the ARP 2600, and the TTSH is partially to blame for that. Offering a smaller, DIY solution (or pre-built like this one was from companies like Laurentide Synthworks) to a synth based around the sound and functionality of the original legend.

Used in really good condition. Some light scuffs on the outside of the case. The finish on the metal is very susceptible to scuffing and light scratches so if you need to have pristine gear this might not be the case for you. All sliders and their LEDs function properly."

Beaterator PSP Synth Only - Dark Sci-Fi Cinematic Soundtrack

Published on Mar 10, 2020 ChrisLody

"I think maybe tonight's upload has been inspired by the continual bombardment of Covid-19 news because it turned out pretty damn dark and very dark sci-fi soundtrack score sort of thing.

So everything here is coming from the synthesizer in Beaterator on PSP including the reverb. It's pretty damn good, I don't use it enough really. Beaterator can play 8 channels of 3 oscillator monophonic synths at once with plenty of editing. It also has some pretty decent effects with automation including a decent reverb.

I've tried to create some string/orchestra/modern score type of sounds from scratch so they're all my own patches."

Korg Wavestate Sound Compilation

Published on Mar 10, 2020 Korg

"Here’s a compilation of some of the sounds from the new Wavestate synth by Korg. Below are descriptions of the patches heard in the video:

Audio Spa – Quick twists of the Mod Knobs create immediate and dramatic changes to the Wavesequence.

Candy for Elle’s Shoes – A few twists of the Mod Knobs dramatically change the rhythmic pattern and effects on part one of this two-part Performance, and adds LFO modulation to the pads on the second part.

Chop it Up – A great example of how you can use the Mod Knobs to affect selected parts within the Performance, in addition to the default modulation settings.

Iceland Piano – An eerie, pulsating piano dances harmoniously with a light arpeggio-like Wavesequence, fused with a lush pad. Mod Knobs change the pitch and repetitions of the Arpeggio, as well as the samples, brightness of the piano.

Wasted Hip Hop – A freeform beat exploration with the Mod Knobs yielding realtime variations to the to beat, step repeats, and sample pitches, while the Vector Joystick brings parts in and out.

Rando 1 – Roll the dice to see what happens! The wavestate’s Randomizer, indicated by a “dice” icon, makes sweeping changes to any Performance by modifying parameters. You can also edit modifier % or choose which aspects of the sounds are modified, to refine or completely unleash the randomizations.

Rando 2 – An especially “strange” Randomization; somewhere between Whale song and a post-apocalyptic movie score! Thankfully, you can save Randomization to user locations, of which there are plenty!!

Rando 3 – This Randomization thing is just too cool. Check out this aggressive beat with underlying pad. The Mod Knobs are doing their part also!

Synth Komper Arp – A perfect blend of Wavesequencing and Arpeggiation. Mod Knobs control the master effect wet/dry, Wavesequencing samples, and pitch to create endless variations on the theme."

OP-Z in Vegas! Master track transpose tip

Published on Mar 10, 2020 Gaz Williams

"I had two hours spare in a hotel room in Las Vegas so I thought I’d make a quick video about my little traveling companion, Teenage Engineering’s tiny powerhouse the OP-Z. In this video I demonstrate how the master track can transpose the note tracks in a very musical way. I place chords on the master track which force the other chords I entered on the chord track to mutate!"

ALM022 - SQUID SALMPLE - Deep Dive 2 - Oscillators, Slicing & Sequencing

Published on Mar 10, 2020 ALM TV

"The ALM Squid Salmple is a powerful 8 channel Eurorack sample player and recorder that has more than just a couple tricks up its sleeve. Due to a flexible design it is possible to turn the Squid in to an echo, pitch shifting and multitap delay, live looper, wavetable oscillator, CV generator and sequencer, sample and hold, drum slicer, pseudo time stretcher and more! Here we examine some patches relating to the creation of oscillators, pseudo granular loops, drum slicing and sequencing. Future videos will explore other techniques and ideas."

Arturia MatrixBrute - A Vintage Glimpse (one synth song)

Published on Mar 10, 2020 Alba Ecstasy

"Arturia #MatrixBrute. Revelation of the century!


I wasn't in such good terms with the MicroBrute, but now, the ladder filter of the MatrixBrute puts me in a state of ecstasy 😁 😜 (pun intended!).

This track/video is based on two previous recorded tracks: a sequence and a bass line and a "live" recorded pad/lead - all custom #ambient #patches.

I just wanted to depict a (simple and short) Berlin School track of the 70's-ish, entirely made with the MatrixBrute. The sequence that ends the track is a crazy one: the LFO2 is modulating the delay's rate, LFO2 is modulated by the LFO1 - modulated as well by ENV3! Whaaat?!

Yes, this is how this monster runs!

The ratcheting effect on the bass line is obtained by manually switching the pattern from 1/16 to 1/32.

A little bit EQ and mix for more headroom, but the character of MatrixBrute is all in there!

Hope you'll enjoy!"
