Patch of the Week 49: volca nubass with Nu:Tekt OD:S Tube Overdrive

Published on Mar 13, 2020 Korg

"The Korg volca nubass features nutube analog vaccum tubes in its oscillator (VTO: Vacuum Tube Oscillator) circuit as well as the saturator for its sub oscillator. But what if we use the Nu:Tekt OD:S tube overdrive pedal DIY kit to add even more tube gain to our signal? The result is a totally distorted acid bassline with massive squelch and filter rip."

The Studio Electronics Midi Mini Synth - a vintage clone of a vintage classic

Published on Mar 13, 2020 Alex Ball

"Whilst synth clones are cropping up left, right and center at the moment, it isn't a new idea. A case in point is the Studio Electronics Midi Mini from 1989.

From asking around I've gathered that SE started this concept by taking the boards out of actual Minimoogs and housing them in a rack mountable case with extra features and midi. The midi to CV was done by Frankensteining a Roland MPU-101 into the rear of the synth and this was dubbed the "Midi Moog".

At some point SE started cloning the boards themselves from scratch and I presume this was because they wanted to produce bigger quantities and sourcing old Minimoogs and MPU-101s wasn't really practical when it came to that ambition. This new version was called the 'Midi Mini' and that's what we're looking at today. To confuse things, I'm told that there were some Midi Mini's with original Moog boards inside them too.

In addition to all the original features of the Model D, the Mini Midi adds a dedicated LFO, velocity sensitivity, aftertouch, oscillator sync, extra keyboard modes and more. This gives you the timeless sound of the Minimoog with extended sonic possibilities and seamless connectivity to a digital audio workstation."

As a BURG patreon You will get access to behind the scenes materials (making of), exclusive live streams, tiers with stems, loop packs and other perks including access to the exclusive BURG discord.

Track info:

With this track I am trying to break free from writers block. I have been working a lot lately, spending time away from the studio which just pushed me into a dark hole of musical procrastination. I decided to go back to basics just using a couple of instruments playing a simple melody i have had glued to my brain for some time... and hey it worked, out came this tune :)

The melody is probably destined for something a bit bigger so I'll keep this one in my back pocket for now as there are still some unexplored variations to the main theme.

Hope you will enjoy it !

Gear used:

- Moog Subsequent 37 + Strymon timeline (dTape), BlueSky (modulated room)
- KORG Monologue + SolidGoldFX electroman delay
- Novation PEAK + Arturia Keystep as sequencer

All recorded on the Zoom H5 on 2 track, mixed in the Behringer 1002B. Post processing, compressor and limiter plus a slight bit of EQ to lift the mids and high as the track was a bit muddy."

Sequential Pro 3 Paraphonic Hybrid Keyboard Synthesizer

Published on Mar 13, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"With analog and wavetable oscillators, three filters, endlessly intricate multitrack sequencer, Sequential instruments, the Pro 3 challenges the very notion of what a monosynth can be. For more about the Pro 3, read here:

The Pro 3 is not beholden to any musical style—capable of everything from smooth leads to complete tracks of jarring, edgy rhythmic sequences, it is every bit monosynth as it is drum machine or destructive sound device. It offers two analog oscillators and one wavetable oscillator, which can each operate with relative independence: the option for three-note paraphony means that polyphonic textures and sequences can easily be coaxed out of this instrument.

The extensive modulation options, though, are what really brings it to life. It offers looping envelopes, LFOs, a 16-track modulation sequencer, a huge modulation matrix, and even assignable CV inputs and outputs. Paired with the velocity and aftertouch-capable keyboard and arpeggiator, this means that the Pro 3 can be played in a huge number of ways. So whether you're used to working with sequencers, modular synths, or keyboards, the Pro 3 can easily find a place in your setup."

"Wow! What an impressive synthesizer! This little beast has 24 discrete analog oscillators and 16 analog filters! It's 8 voices so there's 3 oscillators and two filters per voice. Even though it's still a little buggy and far from perfect its sound is just amazing! A rich warm sound and those juicy filters mmmmmh lovely! This is the first part of a series of demos."

A Playdate with Percussion (the Quest for the Groovebox)

Published on Mar 13, 2020 Knobs

Let us explore all the ways one can make groove, and why the new Model:Cycles has made me one happy boy. This video is meant to be a little sampling buffet of the wide world of percussion, and all the textures and approaches that are available.

Have a nibble.

0:36 - Meet playdate
1:09 - Modular
2:37 - Found sound
3:18 - Found sound from scratch
4:26 - Analog style
6:12 - Listening back
6:39 - FM
7:44 - Model:Cycles
8:34 - Jam!

This is an unsponsored video. Elektron were kind enough to send me the Model:Cycles, but with no commitment or influence on the outcome of this video.

I. Just. Like. It.

I think FM is a really unique and rewarding way to mold sound, and I'm really enjoying the renaissance it's going through.

If you'd care to support me on Patreon, that would be nice:

Thank you!"
