Modular Moog Analog Sessions by Riccardo Fassi

Published on Mar 30, 2020 Riccardo Fassi

"This set of recordings was conceived as a spontaneous improvisation inspired by the sound of Moog Modular systems in all their infinite possibilities. The idea is to use these wonderful vintage instruments in an open way to make immediate and compelling music. Modern technology offers unlimited possibilities, but it is precisely the apparent limitations of these "electronic dinosaurs" that unfold endless tonal resources and effects to produce boundless and novel solutions. I want to thank the great drummer Davide Pettirossi for the fantastic groove in the songs Slow Cat and B. Groove.

Questo insieme di registrazioni è stato concepito come una spontanea improvvisazione ispirata dal suono del Moog Modular e di tutte le sue infinite possibilità. L'idea è proprio quella di utilizzare questi meravigliosi strumenti vintage in modo aperto per fare musica immediata ed urgente. La tecnologia attuale offre illimitate possibilità, ma proprio nell'apparente limite di questi "dinosauri elettronici" si svelano continue risorse timbriche ed effettistiche, che possono essere usate all'infinito trovando sempre nuove soluzioni. Voglio ringraziare il grande batterista Davide Pettirossi per il fantastico groove nei brani Slow Cat e B. Groove.

"Learning to program the Korg Wavestate keyboard.

A pretty simple but fun exercise in pitch and wave sequencing. Layer A & B have complimentary pitch sequences and layer C is a separate mallet pitch sequence. Layer D is for the played line which contains a wave sequence from flute to string sounds. The modulation knobs are controlling the timing and pitch sequences on layer A & B. The Mod wheel is controlling the Amp Envelope release duration on layer D. Vector stick is just for layer volume.

Thanks for watching!"

"The Organ Machine" combo organ CV interface and how it works (ADCs and multiplexers!)

Published on Apr 5, 2020

"The interface circuits we designed and built for 'The Organ Machine' allow a vintage combo organ or other instrument with a divide-down architecture to be controlled with control voltage sequencers, with a separate CV input for each octave. Each octave of the organ is used as the core of a separate synthesizer voice after being fed through the envelopes and filters of a Music From Outer Space modular synth and Buchla clone low pass gates. In this video, Darian demos the instrument and Alison explains how it works, with an explanation of what ADCs (analog to digital converters) and multiplexers do.

This isn't the kind of thing we usually do, but we thought it might be fun to share this weird DIY project while everyone's at home because of the Coronavirus!

Synth Stuff Ep. 65 - Kurzweil K2000

"Hope everyone's staying safe and avoiding the 'ronies. Had a camera battery go bad on me, so pardon the delay. The K2000 was pretty advanced for it's time and hugely popular in the 90's, especially for composers and the few sound designers bold enough to learn the V.A.S.T. engine."

Bit of a studio tour...

James Newman Audio Illustrator - Way Out (Finding God) & Free Music

Supporting MATRIXSYNTH member, James Newman, aka Audio Illustrator has made his collection of music on BandCamp free for all.

Way Out (Finding God), above, is his latest in a Pink Floyd style. Here is what he had to say about it:

"Way Out (Finding God)" is a musical portrait of the soul.

When life paints us in a corner, we look for a way out.

Some say there is no way out...but there is ONE who is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE, He is our way out.

I have tried to capture both the struggle and anguish of the soul that thirsts for what's real and true about this life and the next. From the hopelessness and fear of the unknown, to the power and knowledge and understanding of the ONE who made us...He is our way out.

"Playing some old noisy electric guitar (Edwards Horizon) over Eurorack (for example bass is Malekko antiosc fm'ed by a bit of Doepfer QZVCO,through Ufold, with Doepfer 303filter....)

Don't expect great playing -

Sequenced in VCV Rack as always (and the fx, from virtual chronoblob module mainly)

Couldn't record video from Vcv Rack for perfome/latency balance, you can hear glithches from external audio recorded -

KAWAI K5000S atmospheric soundscapes

Published on Apr 5, 2020 synthlegends

"The KAWAI K5000S was one of the very few ever made hardware synthesizers with additive synthesis, produced between 1996 and 1999.The sonic possibilities are endless, there are more than 1000 parameters to tweak.

In this short video I just made some view atmospheric patches beginning from factory patches. The results were by pure chance. I purchased this incredible synth last week and I have to read the wizard guide, otherwise I will get lost ;-)

There are no addtional mastering or effects used. I think that you really can create massive evolving atmospheric textures with this mashine, you never heard on another synth. Maybe later, I hope so, I learn this great synth and can post more videos.

Stay healthy and keep up!"

"For sale is one of the rarest and most incredible sounding modern polyphonic synthesizers made, a legendary Jomox Sunsyn. Approximately only 200 were ever made and they only show up for sale a couple times of year. This unit in particular is in near mint shape and fully functional. Hardly any signs of use. It is fully functional and sounds incredible, 4-pole filter, RCOs, modulation matrix, easy to use knob-per-function interface, and huge massive unique sound. Nothing else sounds quite like a Sunsyn. Includes original manual and original box (which you almost never see with these, so makes a great collector item). You aren't likely to find another Sunsyn anytime soon in this kind of condition, don't pass this chance up!"

Drambo by BeepStreet - Synthesized String sounds

Published on Apr 5, 2020 Ben Richards

"A string patch to show off the softer side of Drambo! All sounds are synthesized with 3 instances in NanoStudio 2. In short, saw or pulse oscillator with vca is fed into layers of short delays in parallel. The delays are modulated by a randomly triggered smoothed random signal (stochastic gate - random modulator - slew limiter). Polyphony is converted to one voice to make use of a vca and filter after the delays. In this video the oscillator Is layered and hard panned left and right to achieve stereo depth."

Could - OP-1 & ZOIA ambient recorded to cassette

Published on Apr 5, 2020 Jogging House

"This is the closing track of my album 'Names'. You can download it via bandcamp: and order the limited cassette edition via Mystery Circles:

I recorded some sounds from the OP-1 in a textural looper patch I made for ZOIA. And then composed over the resulting ambient textures. All sounds are made with simple drone samples that I loaded into the OP-1s sampler engine.

Then I played the OP-1 through the ZOIA to add delay and reverb. And everything was recorded straight into the Marantz PMD430 in a single take.

Hope you enjoy it"

Studio Electro Jam with various analog synths and the TR808

Published on Apr 5, 2020 Peter Maas

"Been putting another electro track together using mostly old school analog equipment like the roland TR808, SH101 and Jupiter-4. Chord stabs from the crumbar bit-one. FM/Arpeggiator sounds from the TTSH ARP 2600 clone. Processing using various pedals (meris mercury, strymon el capistan) and outboard (Klark Technik 1167 and EQP1, Knas Moisturizer). Made some video material whilst recording and mixed in some diving footage to have a bit of a back-drop to the track."

A Deluge Tip - Fine resolutions and low BPMs

Published on Apr 5, 2020 Synthstrom Audible

"In our 3.1 update (mid-2020) we'll be giving users access to incredibly fine resolutions for note input on the Deluge. This opens up many creative possibilities, here is just one.

Existing Deluge users will already know that you can play a sample back at any speed you want by extending the length of the sample to fill a clip (and the length of a clip of a Deluge is unlimited)
This means you could achieve affect of the sample breaking up while playing at any speed you like, but this video is just to illustrate the ability to be able to play a banger at 2.5 BPM, and having a sample break up like that was a nice illustration of that."
