Winterbloom is having a giveaway for their Sol & Big Honking Button eurorack modules. You can find details on how to enter on Twitter here.

The following are details for each module.

Sol via Winterbloom

"Sol is a uniquely customizable USB MIDI to CV/Gate module. It's designed to be useful right out of the box but flexible enough to accommodate a ton of different CV/Gate generation needs. It is an unusual module, though- Sol is the first Eurorack module that can be re-programmed using CircuitPython. It's designed from the ground up to be customized by you. You are not limited by what we’ve programmed the module to do and you don't have to become an embedded developer to impart your own magic into this module.

Manufactured in the United States.

Preorders placed in April will ship in May."

Priced at $169


Big Honking Button via Winterbloom

"It is a lovely day in the studio and you have captured a horrible goose and put it into your synthesizer.

Big Honking Button is, well, a big button that honks. Okay- okay, before you run away- it’s actually a simple sampler in a very silly package. It has pitch CV, gate in, gate out, and you can store up to 4mb of samples on it.

Manufactured in the United States.

Preorders placed in April will ship in May."

"Fifth Avenue Menace" - Yamaha RS-7000 + Prophet 6 + Prophet REV2 + Korg MS-2000


Published on Apr 15, 2020 Patrick Manderson

"Recorded live late afternoon on April 5th, 2020 using a Yamaha RS-7000 MIDI Sequencer and a room full of MIDI synthesizers & drum machines. The sequencer was painstakingly programmed to play all instruments as well as automations, modulation, volume & patch changes. The instruments ran through 3 mixers and a rack of compressors and outboard effects. All parts were mixed and recorded in a single take. This video was recorded and edited afterwards.

The initial inspiration started with the Korg DDD-5, Korg EX-8000 & Sequential Prophet 6. Later the vox parts were developed on the Korg MS 2000. The Korg Radias would likely do a better job making voice-like sounds but the MS 2000 was more convenient in the early stages. Instead the Radias provided a custom kit of percussive noises, sweeps and plucks.

The Korg EX-8000 is a beautiful sounding synth, unfortunately one patch was used to play bass and nothing else. However the pitch wheel was assigned filter cutoff - giving it the right texture during parts of the music. Art Tube Channel provided its EQ and compression.

The Prophet 6 plays the dominate piano progression in the first half and later takes a minor role filling in space once the intensity kicks in. This patch was very expressive with both envelopes mapped to velocity.

The Korg Minilogue has double-duty with the main melody and layering the bass parts in the first half. Its filter has lots of sweet spots and can be dialed in just right when inspired.

Sequential REV2 and Roland JP-8080 are quite busy filling in various swells, stringy pads, portamentos and spacy atmospherics throughout. The REV2's deep programming allows it to fit perfectly where it needs to.

The BassStation plays a duet of solos in the last 3rd along with Minilogue and MS 2000. Its programming is very flixible for solos using mod wheel, pitch and channel aftertouch. The multi-mode filter give you lots of flexibility to dial in the right sound. A vintage 8bit digital delay added epic sound to the most important parts of the BassStation.

The Roland JX-03 has a minor role doubling a channel with the Radias however the Roland SH-01A is more prominent role filling in necessary chords and melodies.

The Electribe ESX-1 wasn't originally part of this music until later when a need for more punchier beats for the second half.

Accoustic drums came from an expansion card installed in the Roland XV-5080. It was easy to male good use of the multitimbral key-range mapping with a number of arpeggiated plucks drowned in reverb and delay.

The Radias provided additional distorted noises thru bit-reductions at the very end.

Additional reverbs were generated by the Ensooniq DP/4. The Lexicon MX200 pitch shifted the kick and snare on the DDD-5 while the Quadraverb engulfed the drum bus with gated reverb.

All MIDI ran through the MOTU MIDI Timepiece MTP AV.

The camera is an old Panasonic Lumix LX7 point and shoot. Editing was done in Davinci Resolve."

iOS synth TAL-U-NO-LX (Juno-60) ambient jam


Published on Apr 15, 2020 Nathan D Farrell

"This jam is loosely inspired by Nils Frahm “Says”. TAL-U-NO-LX is an excellent recreation of the Juno-60 synthesizer.

Apps used: AUM, Modley delay, TAL-U-NO-LX, Alteza reverb

Edited in luma fusion."

via this auction

Thought this was interesting from the perspective of what's underneath the surface coating. I assumed it was the same shade of blue throughout. It's actually a lighter blue, like the CS1X, underneath. Note the knobs are custom as well.

From the listing: "The corner piece had cracked off from a previous shipper but was super glued back on very strongly. The lighter colored area is where stickers were removed and the solvent did take some paint off. The text along the top edge of the synth (midi in, midi out, etc) is faded but still visible. The battery has been replaced in the last 2 years. The display has good intensity as pictured."

A Special Message From Eric Persing of Spectrasonics - Stéphane Bonvallet Passed Away From COVID-19


A Special Message From EP Published on Apr 15, 2020 SpectrasonicsVIDEO

"A Special Message to our Community from Spectrasonics Founder Eric Persing."

Stéphane is the first person in the synth industry that I'm aware of who has passed away from the coronaviris / COVID-19. He was too young.


via Spectrasonics:

"Stéphane Bonvallet is truly Spectrasonics’ French Connection.

It all started with a D-50 and an explosion of music programming around the planet. Stéphane was one of the first to own this legendary synth in France. His addiction to it and all things audio secured him a position in the dawning of this age of musical programming. Some say he could often be seen programming sounds with his eyes shut in a state of audio nirvana.

It's this kind of passion that keeps Stéphane the eternal optimist in all things pertaining to music and destiny. The allure of the industry eventually lead him to pursue a Masters in Sound Engineering. Studying music arrangement and jazz at the CIM, considered the premiere jazz school in Europe, Stéphane built his skill set through countless studio hours. His talents found their first home in French television work for Les Enfants de la Télé and La Fureur du Samedi Soir.

His association with Spectrasonics spans nearly a decade as a consultant, demonstrator and as a member of the renown sound development team for Omnisphere and Trilian."

Live coding: Roland D-05 and the Empress Zoia


Published on Apr 12, 2020 Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) live codes the Roland D-05 using ORCA while processing the audio with the Empress Zoia. ORCA is an esoteric programming language used for creating sequencers live, it is the perfect companion to the Roland D-05's sounds and fun to use joystick. The Empress Zoia spices up the legendary synthesizer with it's creative, customizable, modern, and modular mono or stereo effects.

From Roland:
'Released in 1987, the Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer is easily one of the most influential keyboards ever made. This revolutionary instrument helped define the sound of the late ‘80s with its instantly recognizable mix of sampled attacks and synthesized sustaining waveforms, plus built-in chorus, reverb, and EQ. It’s the basis of classic tracks in a wide range of genres including synth pop, new wave, new jack, and R&B, and can be heard in countless film scores of the era. With the Roland D-05, you get the iconic sound and dedicated control of the D-50 in a modern device that perfectly recreates the legendary synth down to its finest details.'

Order Roland D-05 here:
https://bit.ly/roland_d05

From Empress:
'The ZOIA is basically a modular synthesizer in pedal form. Instead of being a delay effect or tremolo, the ZOIA provides the modules necessary to build a delay or tremolo from the ground up. But since you're the one building it, you can make it do whatever you want. With the ZOIA you can build your own custom effects, synthesizers, midi controllers, and virtual pedal boards. And to make life a little easier, we've created modules for all your standard guitar effects. So for instance, if you want a phaser, you can just plop down a phaser. You don't have to break out the textbooks to learn that they're built out of all-pass filters. (Of course, if you're a nerd like us, you can use the ZOIA to build them out of all-pass filters).'

Korg Wavestate demo by James Watson


Published on Apr 8, 2020 Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video James Watson (Eightch) of Korg shows us some of the unique and legendary sounds you can find within the new Korg Wavestate. Thank you James and thank you Korg for visiting us in Seattle!

From Korg:
KORG’s legendary Wavestation introduced the world to Wave Sequencing, transforming raw samples into sounds that no-one had ever heard before. The flagship OASYS and KRONOS keyboards developed Wave Sequencing even further, expanding on its unique palette of lush, evolving pads and driving rhythms.

Now, KORG is proud to announce the next step in digital synthesis: the wavestate. Featuring the radically re-imagined Wave Sequencing 2.0, the wavestate delivers astonishing, ever-changing sounds with extensive hands-on control.

Far from a nostalgic reissue, the wavestate is designed from the ground up for a new generation of musicians, producers, and composers, taking cues from sources as diverse as modular synths, groove boxes, and algorithmic composition. The compact form-factor, with 37 full-size keys, transports easily and fits neatly into any stage, studio, or desktop setup.

Running the Landscape HC-TT through the Roland VT-4


Published on Apr 1, 2020 Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) processes the Landscape HC-TT (human controlled tape transport) with the Roland VT-4 (voice transoformer). The results are a vocalized robot dreamscape.

From Landscape:
The HC-TT is a compact cassette manipulation device which allows you to manually play a cassette with your hands. The resulting sound can be incredibly similar to scratching a vinyl record. Sound will only be produced while your hands are turning either of the large playback knobs. By turning these knobs you are directly rotating the cassette spindles which moves the tape across the internal tape head. The knobs “play” a regular cassette forwards and backwards. There is no motor in this device, so direction and speed is left to the performer. The illuminated touch switch is a momentary mute for both the mono audio output as well as the CV/Gate outputs. The Arches and Moons touch plates allow for feedback and other strange interactions. This device does not record audio but only outputs pre-recorded audio from any cassette tape.

Order Landscape HC-TT here:
https://bit.ly/landscape_hctt

From Roland:
The VT-4 is an effect processor for the instrument inside us all—the human voice. And like the human voice, the VT-4 is easy to use, yet devastatingly effective. Whether you’re a solo electronic artist, DJ, or singer in a band, the VT-4 lets you craft and shape your own unique vocal sounds, from subtle augmentation to radical transformation. Everything is hands on, with no menu diving or programming to get in the way. Jaw-dropping effects like harmonizing, vocoding, pitch shifting, hard tuning, and more are just a push, slide, or turn away. And with its compact size and five-hour battery life, you can use the VT-4 anywhere.

Empress Zoia and Roland JU-06A: A True Romance


Published on Feb 4, 2020 Patchwerks Seattle

"In our 3rd video Mathew Piecora (aka EZBOT) explores the midi sequencing capabilities of Empress Zoia by teaming up with the Roland JU-06A. The Zoia patch used consists of 4 sequencers, a clock divider and 2 FX's modules to process the returning audio from the JU-06A.

From Empress:
"The ZOIA is basically a modular synthesizer in pedal form. Instead of being a delay effect or tremolo, the ZOIA provides the modules necessary to build a delay or tremolo from the ground up.

From Roland:
"The JU-06A is the best of the JUNO-60 and JUNO-106 in one synth. It has the continuous high-pass filter of the 106, the envelope-controllable pulse-width-modulation of the 60, and the unique filter behavior of both, instantly switchable from the front panel. The sound is indistinguishable from its vintage counterparts, even while tweaking controls or using extreme settings. And no vintage JUNO would be complete without the swirling sound of its legendary chorus, faithfully recreated, right down to the lovable (and thankfully adjustable) noise."

"Matthew Pieccora (aka EZBOT) demonstrates 4 basic patches that can be found on the included quick start patch guide. After the short sound demonstration enjoy an improvised jam with the Volca Modular and the Elektron Octarack!

From Korg:
A semi-modular analog synthesizer that makes modular synthesis more accessible and understandable than ever before.
Creating new sounds that don’t exist in the outside world is an unending dream which has continued since the birth of electronic musical instruments. This dream has evolved and expanded throughout the development of new and unique music production devices. The popularity of modular synthesizers around the world has generated new excitement and interest in the so-called "West Coast style" of synthesis that deviates from traditional synthesis norms. The compact body of this volca synth features eight modules and 50 patch points. While learning the basics of a modular synth, you can use popular features of the volca synthesizer line to control a unique and different flavor of analog sounds.

1. Øchd: Overview and Demo
Welcome to the Patchwerks video series! In this inaugural video of our series, our resident expert Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) demos the amazingly simple and musically powerful features from the new DivKid module øchd. Remember to like and subscribe, because we'll have more videos of great gear coming your way soon.

From DivKid:
This collaboration between DivKid and Instruo is a 4HP all analogue triangle LFO generator with 8 outputs. Each of the 8 outputs are free running and are musically tuned intervals, as opposed to synced or variable phase outputs from each other. A range of fast to slow outputs can be set to make any patch drift organically and beautifully, letting your modulation freely drift various parameters. There's a global rate control to go up into either lower audio rates on the fastest outputs, or glacially slow. A CV input with attenuverter allows for waveshaping via feedback patching, everything from log, lin or expo curves through to odd staircases waves and more. A negative voltage can reliably halt the circuit which gives 8 track and holds over the outputs.

Installing a new analog filter only requires nine screws to be removed and put back again, after which you will have completely new sound shaping possibilities in your favourite Danish Groovebox. A regular Little deFormer 3 with an analog board installed (which you can also do yourself) can house up to two different analog filters. There's a real Vacuum Tube filter, an SP-12 filter and several other designs, to add plenty of character to your synth and drum sounds.

Scroll down on this page to see which filters are available:

A look back at Windows Phone for musicians (FL Studio mobile on a Lumia 950XL)


Published on Apr 15, 2020 Floyd Steinberg

Funny intro. When support ends are the apps gone or do they remain on your phone?

"Here's a short look at what the now-very-dead Windows Phone could do for electronic music enthusiasts. I decided to show off FL Studio Mobile 'cause that's available for Android and IOS, too."

GrainBastard - Lockdown Vid 3


Published on Apr 10, 2020 Chris Gilkes

"Warning - The video contains flashing images.

My 3rd video of the lockdown and after seeing all the cool looking synth videos that are all dark with coloured lights blinking away, I thought i would try my own.... it didn’t look that lit due to being a battery powered setup that I’m trialling for use in my campervan, so i put a laser on. It’s still hard to see but it done now.

Anyway, it’s a noisy mix of :-
OP-1
PO-12 thru Korg Monotron
Ipad - Audiobus, Borderlands thru Eventide Blackhole
Korg Volca Sample - Pajen OS
Belkin headphone/passive mixer thing...

Need to get a better mixer solution, might look at the Volca Mix 🤔"

The most human RICHARD DEVINE Interview on machines | Gamechanger Audio


Published on Apr 15, 2020 Gamechanger Audio

Some history with Native Instruments in this one.

"An interview with sound designer @Richard Devine from when he visited Riga, Latvia in October 2019. This seems to be one of the few interviews where we get to know the human side of Richard - his journey to the world of sound design. But don't fret, there's gear talk included!

Read the full interview on Richard Devine's artist page at Gamechanger Audio:

Video by Alise Golovacka
Interview by Matīss Tazāns
Music from Richard Devine's live set, processed by Edvards Broders
Captured at Baltā Nakts 2019 (White Night)

Richard Devine is definitely a deep-sea creature. For the looks of it, this man embodies sunshine and his voice could easily soothe all your troubles away, but put him in front of the right gear and a whole new world arises. From techno beats, rave sets and frequencies that scratch the most inner parts of your brain to useful sound design of everyday tools - Richard lives a life where every knock, beep and screech is a part of a bigger picture. He’s known for his enthusiasm towards gear and companies that help him shake that picture into cosmic rays. That’s why we had to sit him down and see how that kind of brain developed into what it is. Turns out, it’s not as mysterious as we thought, but it’s definitely a life that sounds a lot different than we could imagine."

Bleep Labs Original Thingamagoop - Pink & Green Version


via this auction

"The Thingamagoop was created by Bleep Labs because they felt that 'there are not nearly enough beeping, zapping, bixxerfouping, anthropomorphic synthesizer monsters in the world'. You can think of it as one of those baby toys that makes random noises with flashing lights, but designed for adults. While it looks like a robot, it’s actually an analog type synthesizer that’s controlled by a photocell, a couple of switches and a knob, instead of a keyboard. Varying levels and different types of light will produce different beeping tones, while the frequency can be adjusted by using the knob on the front of the device."

"Gorgeous, original vintage Juno 106 in excellent condition, no issues, sounds awesome. This is the OG Japanese version, 100v, with attached ac cable. You won’t find a cleaner, better playing example of THE definitive analog polysynth."

Roland TB-303 Bass Line Synthesizer


via this auction

"This legendary bassline synth doesn't really need an introduction, instant '80's sound. It's been used but in great condition. It comes with a non-original power adapter."

Fender Chroma Polaris with Original Box


via this auction

"For your consideration is a very rare, near-mint condition Chroma Polaris synthesizer including the original box, manual, and foot switch. The synth has lived in storage most of it's life, as it was never really used by the original owner. Maybe the last and only time you'll see a Chroma Polaris in this condition."
