Hydrasynth custom sounds demo: no talking

Published on Mar 23, 2020 Seen From Space

"Each sound is a single patch: there are no overdubs, and effects are on-board the synth. (I did add a bit of compression and sub-bass cut on some of the patches, just to tame spikes and rumble!) The percussive patch that opens the video is a single sustained note. All the rhythmic parts to it are from clocked LFOs. Some of the other patches are arpeggiated, and the final one is sequenced block chords; again the rhythms are clocked LFOs."

The output of the S&H circuit goes through an external note quantizer and is then routed again into the CV input of the 2600.

Delay and Reverb added (TC Electronic D-TWO, Lexicon PCM 80)."

Poly Pulse

Published on Mar 23, 2020 No Nag Recordings

"This is my polyphonic setup with 6 Waldorf Pulses. It becomes a massive synth. It's almost like a Memorymoog with 3 oscillators per voice and 24db filter... "almost". You can also do different setups. Say you layer 2 Pulses for a 3 voice with combined patches. You have 6 arpeggiators at your disposal. with different clocks, octaves, sounds. The only downside is the space it takes to have it."

Malekko Heavy Industry // Manthers, Modulars and Russian Submarines

Published on Mar 23, 2020 DivKidVideo

"As part of 'DivKid's West Coast Adventure' (more on that below) I had the chance to head down to Portland, Oregon and go see Malekko Heavy Industry and their Darkplace Manufacturing facility too. It was a pleasure to meet Josh Holley, Paul Barker, Ben Davis, Anna Sitko and the rest of the team. I had a nosy around (camera in hand for the b roll) and grabbed some footage with two different Eurorack modular systems and also the very lovely Manther! Across a couple of days I also sat down with founders Josh Holley and Paul Barker for a casual interview, learning some background as well as looking to the future.

"As we shelter in place we have a bit of fun with the KOMA Field Kit driving the Crank Sturgeon Pocket Gamelan (springs, wires, and contact mics). We also use the Mr. Grassi non-deterministic touch plate module to drive a gong via a speaker and contact mic connected to the Field Kit. Audio is sent through the Strymon Magneto and QuBit Prism modules. The solenoid of the Field Kit is controlled by an FM shaped LFO on the After Later Pique module.
