"Today I spent some time with the Roland MKS-80. First I programmed a BASS line into the MSQ-700. I used the MPG-80 to control the tone of the BASS line. Then I used the Fantom G8 to play the STRING harmony, HORNS, and SYNC LEAD. I added some delay on the right channel with the BOSS DW-2w Waza Delay Pedal and some chorus on the left channel with the BOSS CE-2 Chorus Pedal. Thanks for watching! Please stay safe out there. Take care, Sam."

AdamJay - The System Has Failed Us - Live Techno

Published on Mar 18, 2020 Adam Jay

"A statement of frustration with our current global predicament, how our leaders have failed us, and how we must work together to overcome the reckless choices made by those who have abused their power.
I could not sleep last night and had to get this out of my system.

Equipment used:
Elektron Model:Samples , running just three different 556 byte single cycle waveforms from Digitone and Analog Four, used across all 6 tracks. Heavy LFO modulation to synthesize the kick and bass (DN) sounds, and hat (A4), all in the M:S.
Special thanks to Taro for those free single cycle waveforms.
Was a fun experiment in pushing such minimal material to the limits.
M:S output hits an Alesis Micro Limiter and some light Octatrack FX (EQ/Comp) as well. MF Twister just controlling OT bass equalizer."

Neon Captain Radiator New Math

Published on Mar 18, 2020 Neon Captain

"We taught our Radiator Laser Synthesizer some new and dangerous math last night.

The HSV color frequency is being driven by the same LFO that is creating the shape. We can manipulate the shape / speed / effects and even hue and hue width, and the color stays 100% locked with the shape instead of losing the harmonic.

Being able to drive 'one to many' controls from a single LFO and even stack LFO's onto the same control or use one LFO to influence another LFO makes for some really cool effects."

New SYNTHR3 Boutique Modular with Interchangeable Filters by SynthR & oZoe

SynthR3 Demo1 : first sequence test (Berlin School) sync on Electribe

Published on Dec 12, 2019 KurtzMindfields

"Introduce the SYNTHR3 made by Remy Wasselin et Jean-Luc Lartigue.
Prototype N°1
Today discovering the sound and possibilities of this Semi-Modular analog Mono/Paraphonic with 3 VCO + Sub VCO/ 2VCF / 2LFO / 2 VCA / S&H / Noise /Ring Modulator ... and Patch memories ! Arpegiator ! Step Sequencer !(chords or mono). Internal clock or MIDI Clock (as seen in the demo)
Just love it !!!!!!!! "

This one is in via Synth Anatomy who translated the details to English. You can find the SynthR website here.

"SYNTHR3 is a new Boutique modular analog Synthesizer from France with a prewired engine, interchangeable filters, and MIDI control.

The French developer Rémy Wasselin aka SynthR has today introduced the SYNTHR3, a new pre-wired modular analog Synthesizer. The synth is built into a beautiful, compact wooden case with a black faceplate and bluish light buttons.

SYNTHR3 is full analog and can be used in different modes (3-voice paraphonic, 2-voice poly bi-timbral or mono). In full mono (3 oscillators + 1 or 2 filters), paraphonic (3 voices) and duophonic. That’s not all. It also includes an arpeggiator mode with a virtual keyboard split with many possible modes. So VCO 2 can be linked to the arpeggio or free to play. In the sequencer mode, you can memorize the sequences in mono or Para1 mode.

Flexible 3-VCO Design

SYNTHR3 has three analog oscillators, each with different waveforms and modulation options. VCO 1 and 2 outputs triangle, sawtooth and pulse with PW control. VCO 3 includes triangle, reverse sawtooth and square waveforms. The first two oscillators also have dedicated inputs for FM and PWM that can be achieved via LFO1, LFO2, envelope, aftertouch, S&H or VCO2 (cross-mod). Also, you can sync VCO 2 with VCO 1 and apply glide (portamento) to both oscillators.

The third oscillator also includes PWM and frequency modulation via an envelope, aftertouch or LFO2. Further, you have a sub-oscillator with two sub-octaves. Octave -1 outputs triangle, sawtooth, square while octave -2 only square. SYNTHR3 also includes a noise generator (white/pink) and a flexible ring modulator (VCO 1 – 2 and/or VCO3 mixable). All signals come together in the mixer and can be routed independently to VCF 1 or/and VCF2.

Many Legendary Filters In One Synth

The filter section SYNTHR3 offers two filters (VCF) and contains filters from many legendary Synthesizer developers: ARP 4072, SEM, Moog, Steiner, CEM3320, and SI2044. Very exciting is here that all the filters are available and selectable in the Synthesizer. So you can have per example a Moog filter in VCF1 and SEM in the second.

SunVox Tracker Basics

Published on Mar 18, 2020 boxoftextures

"SunVox has been around for a long time on practically every platform. Heck, they even have a Palm Pilot version if that's what you need. I did this video on my iPad Pro but I could have just as easily done it with the Mac version, say, as they're basically identical.

This is a First Contact™ video. The app's not at all new but this is the first time I've really delved into it. In other words, please forgive me if I missed something truly obvious. Definitely looking forward to digging in deeper.

I really only touched the tracker parts of the app, and only one pattern, but there's a lot more to it than that. There are several synthesizer modules, and you can also make complex arrangements on the fly by making multiple patterns. You can add bits of randomness and uncertainty as well in order to make things perhaps more organic or maybe even self-playing possibly, although to be honest I've only barely scratched the surface and not gotten anywhere near those things yet.

I made this video mostly as a very basic demo for folks who've never seen a tracker before, or were wondering how one might be different from a sequencer. The simple answer is that a tracker is perhaps "lighter" than a sequencer in that you can do everything in it just by typing things in on your keyboard. You could just as easily do what I did on an iPhone while waiting for a bus rather than at home on an iPad or a computer, and that's kind of the point. Heck, you could probably do it just as easily on a Game Boy maybe. Not going to give up my laptop or my regular software, but I can actually do music on the fly on my phone at a moment's notice, and that definitely has value.

An Ocean in Thyme // No Input Ambient Music // Mooer Ocean Machine + Bastl Thyme #TTNM

Published on Mar 18, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"It's been a while since I last made some no input music with the Mooer Ocean Machine and Bastl Thyme ...


The Ocean Machine is a straightforward looper, dual delay and reverb guitar effect pedal. Its left channel output is connected the Bastl Instruments Thyme robot-controlled digital tape delay. The Thyme's right channel output goes back into the Ocean Machine's right channel input. The Thyme's left channel output goes into the audio recorder.

This creates a feedback loop between the two devices, resulting in audible self-oscillation, which can be looped and shaped via the effects, similar to a normal synthesizer waveform. Only that we don't need a synth at all.

The video was recorded in one take, without any other sound sources or effects, apart from the Ocean Machine and Thyme.

It's fun! try it at home!

Here's a tutorial for the Ocean Machine alone: [posted below]

HORROR DRONE!!! Mooer Ocean Machine No Input Noise Music! #TTNM

Published on Apr 17, 2019 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"At Thomann's Synth Reactor 2019 I finally got the chance to play with an Ocean Machine, after having it on my wish list for a long time (video here: After that, Mooer Audio were kind enough to send me a pedal home to dig deeper into it. I don't have a guitar though, so I needed to come up with another way to use this thing and I think I actually found one that is way more fun :D

At your own risk, plug one Ocean Machine audio output into your speaker/mixer/recorder. Plug the other audio output into one of the Ocean Machine's audio inputs. Plug in power and hold on to your hat!

... well, start with all three mixer knobs at zero, obviously. Then slowly add feedback by adding delays and reverb. Short delay times add high pitched sounds, while long delay times add lower pitched sounds. Play with different delay and reverb types and don't forget to let the looper's continuous audio overdub running. Also, use the reverse and half-speed playback features!"

PPG's Wolfgang Palm to Retire - Brainworx Audio GmbH to Take Over Product Line


Important announcement

Dear Customer,

after 50 years of creative work in the field of sound synthesis I decided to stop doing business. I've been thinking about this step for some time now, especially since I've turned 70 this year. Therefore, I am very happy to have found a competent company in Brainworx Audio GmbH that will take over and continue my products and ideas.

I would like to thank you for the support I've received over the last six years. PPG VST plug-ins and iOS apps are no longer available for purchase. We will continue to provide downloads of your previous plugin purchases until end of 2020.

However, we do not recommend updating the hosts or the operating systems, as we cannot guarantee that our products will still run perfectly.

Customers of PPG plugins will receive a mail from SendOwl, which gives more infos on how to connect to Brainworx.

The future of the iOS apps has not been decided yet.

Thank you again for your support.
March 2020, Wolfgang Palm"

Update: and the official press release:

"Plugin Alliance announces acquisition of Wolfgang Palm’s prestigious PPG synthesizer brand by Brainworx Audio

“I am very glad to have found Brainworx and Plugin Alliance, who appreciate my work from the past and want to continue my legacy.”
- Wolfgang Palm, originator of wavetable synthesis and founder/owner of PPG, 2020

SANTA CRUZ, CA, USA: Plugin Alliance, supporting all major plugin formats and uniting some of the best- known international audio companies under one virtual roof, is proud to announce founding partner Brainworx Audio’s acquisition of the assets of Wolfgang Palm’s prestigious PPG synthesizer brand. The trailblazing Hamburg-based company founded by Wolfgang Palm first found fame and fortune in its initial incarnation throughout the Eighties and beyond by bringing the distinctive sound of wavetable synthesis to the musical masses and also impacting the MI industry with its innovative PPG Wave hybrid digital/ analogue synthesizer series and associated advances. These included the unique (unreleased) Realizer — quite possibly the world’s first virtual instrument (in 1986), albeit as a proprietary hardware hybrid! Software seriously came calling from 2012 onwards when Wolfgang Palm returned to prominence, producing new PPG products.

What a legacy. PPG synthesizers have musically made their mark onstage and in the studio with an array of notable artists such as a-Ha, Alphaville, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Thomas Dolby, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Jean-Michel Jarre, Mike & The Mechanics, Gary Numan, Pet Shop Boys, Rush, Talk Talk, Tangerine Dream, Tears For Fears, Ultravox, Stevie Wonder, and many more. Thanks to Brainworx Audio’s acquisition of the assets of Wolfgang Palm’s prestigious PPG synthesizer brand, that legacy is all set to thrive.

Plans are already afoot by Brainworx Audio to update Wolfgang Palm’s PPG products in close collaboration with the man himself, universally recognized as the originator of wavetable synthesis! Together they will take the PPG brand and advance its digital products into the future, following Wolfgang Palm’s planned retirement at the end of March 2020 — after 50 years in the creative field of sound synthesis! Signing an agreement with Plugin Alliance and Brainworx Audio owner Dirk Ulrich ultimately lets Wolfgang Palm put his (well- deserved) retirement plan into action, happy in the knowledge that his ‘baby’ will be in good hands.

Wolfgang Palm puts it this way: “I am very glad to have found Brainworx and Plugin Alliance, who appreciate my work from the past and want to continue my legacy. They have a great team of competent developers, product specialists, marketing, and all that is needed to make a company successful. I support their work to make the transition as smooth as possible, and it will be exciting to see how this evolves. Also, I think that this collaboration will result in a much wider audience than before.”

Indeed, it is a great honor for Brainworx Audio to be joining forces with Wolfgang Palm — truly a legend in his own right, and continue to break boundaries in the world of virtual instruments. “We are proud that Wolfgang Palm put his brand and product into our hands,” declares Dirk Ulrich, ending on a high note: “We will make sure to carry on his legacy with the respect it deserves and we are looking forward to evolving the brand and products for years to come.”

For more in-depth information about the trailblazing work of Wolfgang Palm and the prestigious PPG’s past, present, and future, feel free to check out Plugin Alliance’s interview with the man himself here."

Macbeth Elements EL2 2019 Black

via this auction

"Amazing analog synth!! I bought this brand new direct from Ken Macbeth in 2019. I have listed it as excellent because it is practically new and has hardly been used. However, there is one very important issue I want to point out. The high Eb on the sensor type keyboard is intermittent. When I receive this EL2 from Ken, that sensor did not work. Then it started working one day, and then stopped again. All the other sensors function 100%. It's just that high Eb. I contacted Ken, and he said he would happily fix it if I sent it back to him. However, I decided to just keep it as is since I mostly played it through CV anyway and I didn't want to deal with shipping to Scotland after waiting for this synth to be built. Absolutely every other function is 100% and the synth is amazing. I would assume Ken would still fix this if you want it fixed. I just personally don't think it's worth it since you can control this synth more expressively through external CV. 3 of these sold on Reverb used for $6,000. I'm asking $5,500 or best offer due to the one sensor which I think is a fair deal."

Demo in the listing previously posted here.

"Recently check on and refurbished in Amsterdam. It is basically like new, although with some scratches , they remain very minimal knowing that this unit is from the nineties.

The MS-404 is basically Dopefer's take on the TB-303 by Roland.

However the two added LFOs add a whole new dimension to the 303 sound. This is because they can modulate the VCOs! Other common 303 emulator features also found on the MS-404 include an external filter input (which I love to use to colour digital synths/VSTs), CV/GATE interfacing, MIDI implementation and a glide effect.

Also has a nice little knob in the back to adjust the Audio input and can be used as a nice preamp/overdrive for whatever you feed into it (nice little driver for drum sounds for example).

All parameters are MIDI controllable. The slide and accent effects from the TB-303 are possible on the MS-404 from the glide control and MIDI velocity for accent.

Polyphony - Monophonic
Oscillators - 1 VCO (sawtooth, pulse, PWM, noise)
LFO - Triangle wave (0.003Hz to 5kHz)
Filter - 24 dB/Oct resonant filter (w/ independent LFO)

Memory - None
Input/output - MIDI, CV / GATE, Audio
Date Produced - 1994"

Korg Prologue controlled by Low Frequency Expander for extra modulations

Published on Mar 18, 2020 Steve Hunt

"The Yorick Tech Low Frequency Expander (LFE) is designed primarily for the Sequential / DSI OB-6 and Prophet 6 synthesizers, but it can now also control the Korg Prologue - another synth with relatively few modulation sources. The LFE adds 3 complex LFOs and a complex 6-stage envelope generator which can also be used as a 2 to 16 step sequencer. This is a simple demo of what the LFE can add to a few of the Prologue's factory patches. Not trying to be remotely musical here, just showing some of the extra modulation abilities on offer.

1. Runner Brass. Two slow LFOs modulating VCO1 and VCO2 shapes giving a very rich sound, envelope modulating filter resonance so each note starts without resonance, another (fast) LFO modulating filter frequency but only brought in with increasing velocity.

2. June Pad. Chorus speed controlled with envelope so it speeds up through the note then slows down. Reverb off during note but then full depth after note released.

3. In my dream. Velocity and LFE's envelope modulating Xmod depth, velocity modulating timbre balance reducing the level of the 'tinkle' with more velocity. LFO 3 comes in after about 2 seconds with a repeating pattern modulating the filter frequency, then I change the pattern type.

4. Solid Bass. Complex envelope modulating filter freq , LFO1 modulating VCO1 shape to give more richness, LFO2 is a key-triggered saw wave modulating Osc3 shape which gives a dark beat, LFO3 does the same with resonance giving a ching-ching beat with increasing velocity.

5. Opal mine. 7-step sequencer controlling filter frequency, filter freq and res controlled by LFO 2 and 3 giving the flutter effect, velocity controlling the Korg's LFO rate.

6. ReeseFlux. Envelope controlling the Korg's LFO rate and the depth of LFO1's sine wave which is modulating filter drive. LFOs 2 and 3 are modulating resonance and filter freq which come in after a few seconds.

8. Sherbet. Longer sequence modulating filter freq, LFO2 modulating Osc3 shape with velocity, LFO3 modulating filter res.

9. Raid rush. Envelope modulating filter env depth, velocity controlling the Korg's amp envelope's Attack time, LFO 2 modulating Osc3 level with a saw wave, LFO3 controlling filter freq.

10. Sparkle. Envelope controlling Osc 3 shape, 3 LFOs coming in after a del and/or fade to modulate filter frequency and VCO1 shape.

11. Poly spread. Complex envelope controlling filter freq and 3 LFOs coming in after delays to modulate 2 VCO shapes and filter env depth, one with just 3 cycles.

14. Cinematica. Envelope controlling Osc3 shape, filter freq controlled by a delayed stepped wave from LFO1, LFO2 modulating resonance, LFO3 brought in by velocity to affect VCO2 Octave giving the repeating beat pattern."
