John Bowen Solaris Sound Demo

Published on Mar 31, 2020 Pure Ambient Drone
Update: Re-Published on Apr 28, 2020

"John Bowen Solaris Demo. No talking of some Solaris preset patches.

The general concept behind the John Bowen Solaris synthesizer is to implement something like a giant wall-sized modular system entirely in software where you can select among several completely different types of oscillators and filters, exquisitely modelled after the components culled from a variety of legendary vintage synthesizers of yesteryear and even some current virtual analog innovations of today. With up to four oscillators, four filters, four amplifiers, four four-input mixers, six envelope generators, one looping envelope generator, five LFOs, two vector mixers and still more of these software modules available in each program, the Solaris synthesizer becomes absolutely unrivalled in terms of versatility and programmability."

First jam on Elektron Cycles - SYSTEM OF THE TIMES: Model:Cycles & Korg NTS-1 #quarantune Impro

Published on Mar 31, 2020 Gary P Hayes

"Just got the Model:Cycles, so this is after a couple of hours getting under the hood (and there isn't a lot of complexity for sure) - I actually got this as a lightweight pair with my Analog Four mk2, for outdoor sessions, mainly so the drums & perhaps tuned percussion and some chords, can be done on this while the A4 sticks to sequences and bass.

For now a continuous 1st Jam / Impro on #Elektron #Model:Cycles - I used the NTS-1 because I was very keen on the delay and reverb control on the Cycles, just size and feedback and that's about it?
feat: Korg Nu:Tekt #NTS-1 recorded direct to Zoom H6 no post processing

Rich Timbres with Simple Eurorack Modules - Live Synthesis Tutorial

Published on Mar 31, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"We will be livestreaming some tips and techniques for generating interesting sounds with dynamic harmonics with simple analog eurorack modules. This tutorial will be useful for beginner and intermediate modular as well as semi-modular and even fixed architecture synthesists. We will combine techniques considered “west coast” and “east coast” both adding and subtracting harmonics from basic oscillator shapes.

The techniques and concepts covered will include waveforms, heterodyning, sync, wavefolding, amplitude modulation, ring modulation, frequency modulation and filtering. All of these techniques can be controlled and modulated with envelopes, LFOs and even at audio rate. If you have questions you can ask them in the chat at the Q+A at the end of the presentation."

Maria Teriaeva - SØS (Official Video)

Published on Mar 31, 2020 Maria Teriaeva

“SØS” is taken from the forthcoming album “Conservatory of Flowers”.
Listen: (out on April 17).

Strange things are happening in the science lab - here and there new objects appear. The exact settings of the universe are lost due to the unforeseen events in outer space. At the same time, Maria Teriaeva conducts musical experiments at her studio. The laboratory resonates with the studio. We do not know all the laws of the universe, and collapse can occur unexpectedly and in unpredictable forms. But anomalies are of particular interest to Maria Teriaeva.

This is the first video clip of the Moscow production studio SUPERBASIC.

Part of the clip was shot in the scientific experimental complex at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University. The protagonist of this part is the scientist Mikhail Yuryevich Sotskiy. Mikhail publishes works in Acta Astronautica, and knows what to do if a trash ball flies to Earth.

Crudlabs Crudman (Version 1, with EXTRAS) | Aphex Twin "Ageispolis" cover on Crudman

Aphex Twin "Ageispolis" cover on Crudman Published on Jul 18, 2017

via this auction - pics and additional details further below.

"Crudman is a unique electronic musical instrument based around a cassette Walkman hacked so its speed can be accurately controlled in musical intervals with Midi and 1v/octave CV. Here a Crudman plays a melody and a bassline of a song you'll hopefully recognize, via a Midi file played in Ableton.

The tape in the video is of a sine wave tuned to middle C, and the audio is straight into a recording device with no pedals or effects or anything. Straight unprocessed sine wave is not the most compelling sound in itself but it gives the clearest possible demonstration of how the Crudman affects a sound. Likewise I don't expect or want customers using these to cover classic songs but its a fun way to show the capabilities of the thing.

I believe this is the first of these videos to feature most of the Crudman's 4 octave range. The top 2.5-3 octaves are extremely stable and accurate, usually to about +/-10 cents. The lowest 1 to 1.5 octaves, heard in the bassline in the middle here, are super wobbly and the lower you go the less stable the tuning is. If you look at the bassline with a tuning app (I use PanoTuner for iPhone) you'll see its way off, like over 50 cents, but for whatever reason it still sounds pretty much spot on."

via this auction

"RARE monophonic cassette playback synth capable of amazing drones, leads, and sound effect - all based on recordings YOU supply.

Several videos available on YouTube demonstrating the use of this unique instrument; search "Crudlabs Crudman". Please note this is the Version 1 edition of the Crudman, and varies slightly from the later version shown in some videos. Video shown in listing is not of actual unit, and meant for demonstration purposes only.
Comes in original (plain white) box, original power supply, and printed instruction manual.
VERY light studio use.

EXTRAS INCLUDED: Five 60-second and ten 30-second blank cassette loop tapes, two tape splicers with splicing tape, an aluminum splicing block, a Sony F-V220 monophonic microphone, AND a separate Sony TCM-200DV cassette-corder (identical to the one on the unit) - all for use in recording and editing your own loop tapes. This extra cassette-corder unit may also be used to supply spare parts if needed for future repairs conducted at Crudlabs, located in Brooklyn, NY.

NOTE: Labels shown on inputs/outputs and switches are not factory screened/supplied, and have simply been added to assist in set-up and use."

Angry Drone Patch (TX Wiggles 57)

Published on Mar 31, 2020 poorness studios

"Here's another musical experiment derived from self-isolation. In this video, I patch an angry drone and then explore each of the 4 voices used to create it. In case you're wondering, it's in the key of Bb. The four sound sources are: 1) Pittsburgh Waveforms thru Dwarfcraft HAX, 2) Erica Black Wavetable VCO with wavetable morphing, 3) MI Rings thru Pittsburgh Crush & Chronoblob, 4) Basimilus Iteritas Alter. The mix goes to the Doepfer Wasp filter and then to Boss RV-6. Most of the modulation comes from Batumi."

PPG Wave 2.2

via this auction

"This is one of my most prized and cared for possessions. If we weren't in the middle of an unprecedented financial crisis, I would prefer have this beauty buried with me. ;) It's the absolute king of wavetable synthesizers, the first and only of its kind if you ask me (and virtually anyone else who's had the privilege to use one). I've had this particular one for the better part of 20 years, and she's never let me down (unlike multiple new synths where I find myself flustered when firmware corrupts or memory erroneously wipes out); she's just been steadfast and true for her treasured time with me. Always kept in a non-smoking studio, voltage regulated and on battery backup. When I bought this beauty some 20 years ago I was under the impression the previous owner had a good working relationship with PPG when they were still in business and this was one of the first editions in circulation. This beauty was exported to the UK and found a home with one of the curators of the early 2000 (UK) PPG Conferences. With the help and guidance of PPG connoisseur, H. Seib, she was gone through with a fine tooth comb and had been swapped out with new bushings, keys and factory formatted. Since my acquisition of this unit (3rd owner by my understanding) I had created and sculpted custom waves with the Waveterm A (When it still functioned, but sadly that is now a very distant memory) and a wide range of factory sounds which are still in place. I had considered the upgrade to V8.3 to save much of the library I had created but wouldn't attempt it without the expertise and assistance of a few friends in Toronto who had years of experience working on these, but sadly that never did come to fruition. Time is always the greatest enemy, isn't she? ;) I also have the entire factory soundset from the floppy disk of the 2.3, Waveterm A and B as well as many wavetables shared on the old PPG forum so the update would probably be worth it. It's a fairly easy upgrade and still available to purchase if you're considering using the SYSEX features of V8.3. There was discussion some years ago about a virtual waveterm being available at some point (Waveterm C), perhaps a gentle nudge in the PPG discussion forum and it will eventually materialize with those DIY monowaves. ;) Until then, I leave you with one of the worlds finest synthesizers ever imagined. This is the stuff dreams are made of, not kidding. Serious inquiries only, thanks!
