OEI Voyetra 8 Custom Patches by synth_nyc

synth_nyc is a new supporting member of the site.

"“All my synthesizer custom patches are hand made from scratch, no editing of existing patch, no SYSEX import, no randomizer, etc... It takes between 1 to 2 hours to design a patch, create a small musical demo, adjust the patch to fit the melody, and record it / post produce it and post it on soundcloud.

I had some success with my sound design with several synth manufacturers whom re-posted my banks on soundcloud:
- Boutique UK hardware manufacturer
- Boutique Japan hardware manufacturer; whom purchased a 128 sounds bank from me.
My custom patches are also highly praised on some synth forums "synth_nyc has some epic Deckard's Dream demos on Soundcloud I don't know who he or she is but talented... Wow you weren't kidding. Great stuff" or "Check out synth_nyc on SoundCloud Incredible 002r rack demos If I had one would try to contact and get those presets ! He also has some killer 008Rpresets"; just google me!

A quick note about me: the DX7 was my first synth in the mid-80s, and I remembered spending countless hours on Wednesday afternoons (off school) programming my DX7 and in a recording studio in my home town sharing my patches with the Sound Engineer.

Since then, I'd always enjoyed programming synths for fun and had the chance to own some (and others) of the Arturia V Collection for real.

Just sharing the stoke of my custom patches with you!


Oscar Schmidt Easy Chord 2 w/ Original Box & Manual

Published on Apr 16, 2020 Blake's Gear

Similar to a Suzuki Omnichord. I believe this is the first one to be featured on the site.

via this auction

"This analog keyboard has a touchplate for harp sounds and 6 chord buttons for organ sounds.
Unlike the Omnichord, pushing a chord button and then pushing another chord button at the same time creates a momentary combination of chords.

Another thing that makes it even more expressive than the Omnichord is that the chord buttons are velocity sensitive, so more individual notes are triggered the harder you press.

The tone knob isn't a filter but actually controls the blend between two totally different sounding synth oscillators at separate octaves.

Runs on AA batteries or with power supply. (not included)
Made in Japan."

How To Make A Track: Phase Fatale

Published on Apr 15, 2020 How To Make A Track: Phase Fatale

Cool video featuring focusing mainly on the Waldorf XT. This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"How To Make a Track is a series that offers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how the world’s best producers make their music. In this episode, we visit the Berlin studio of Hayden Payne aka Phase Fatale, a Berghain resident with a love of ’80s post-punk, industrial and EBM.

On his new album Scanning Backwards, released earlier this year on Ostgut Ton, Payne explores how sound has been used to try to influence human behaviour throughout history, from the soundsystems that power nightclubs to the mind-control experiments conducted by the CIA as part of the top secret MK-Ultra program in the 1950s and ’60s.

Payne shows us how his fascination with the effects of different sonic frequencies informs his music, whether he’s scanning wavetables on his Waldorf Microwave XT synth or using guitar feedback to create background ambience.

Scanning Backwards is available now on Ostgut Ton."

Waldorf PPG Wave 2.v VST Synth Demo 1 - Wavetable Goodness

Published on Apr 19, 2020 Synth & Sundry

"Hear a range of sounds from the Waldorf reincarnation of the PPG Wave 2.3 wavetable synth in VST form. This is the Edition 2 LE version whose only limitation is total polyphony which is capped at 8 voices. Bristling with digital sizzle and icy flourishes thanks to its 32 wavetables containing 64 waves in each wavetable. In the sounds tested so far, this VST recreation excels at synth keys, leads and pads.

Those pleasing digital articulations are caused by the 8-bit (relatively low-res) interpolation between single-cycle waveforms contained in the wavetable as the synth scans it. The digital nature of its wavetables is tamed by an emulation of the SSM 2044 Voltage Controlled Filter.

SM Granita Demo

Published on Apr 19, 2020 Sample Me

"SM Granita is a maxforlive granular synthesizer.

More info and free download:"

"SM Granita is a granular synthesizer. It’s a remix of Monolake’s Granulator II with focus on easy texture creation. Drag any sample and enjoy. It adds a luxury reverb and an audio pitch shifter for texture intonation, very useful in less experimental contexts.

Size: defines how many (very short) crossfading sample chunks are played back per second. High values: more chunks with shorter duration each are created.
Pos: file position. It can either be set by moving this parameter or by clicking on the waveform.
Spread: enables the slight detuning of the grain frequency for the left and right channel.
Lush: nw.gverb~’s decay time + mix. I like to have just 1 control, but you can easily add both in presentation.
ADSR: classic amp envelope.
Pitch (semitones + cents): audio pitch shifter for instrument tuning. Use Ableton Tuner Effect device (watch the demo video above). It introduce some latency and adds weird color at extreme values.
Voices: number of polyphonic voices.
Volume: ehm… main volume."

Keystep Pro first patch

Published on Apr 19, 2020 Omri Cohen

"If you like what I do and want to support my work, consider joining my crew on Patreon -

You can get the WAV file for this performance on my Patreon page -

Here are some patch notes:
- I'm sending a gate from one of the channels of the KSP's drum sequencer to ping a Vult filter, which is going through Ledrover for some overdrive and ReduXer for some bit crushing. This is going to VCV Rack for delay with Chronoblob2.
- I'm using the Mimeophon as a voice and I'm controlling its pitch with another channel of the KSP. I'm recording it into Magneto in looper mode.
- I'm also sending the Mimeophon to the Microcell for extra texture.
- I have 2 channels of the KSP sequencing 4 Basal oscillators from Vult in different octaves. They're also going through dome delay and reverb.
- I'm using the KSP in control mode to control the level and timbre of the sequences.
- In VCV Rack, I'm using Battery 4 from Native Instruments for drums, and I'm sequencing them with the drum sequencer of the KSP.
- I have a Kalimba recorded in Arbhar, which is going through a comb filter on the Freak filter.
- In VCV Racki, I have another voice, an arp, going to another Freak filter in BP Vortex mode.
- I have a sample on the Morphagene, which is going through a rotary effect in VCV."

Nord Lead 3 Performance Synthesizer SN 21030057

via this auction

"This Nord Lead 3 has been at Eldorado Recording Studios for the past 10 years and you may have even heard it on any number of hit records that we have recorded.

We hate to see it go since it has been quite useful and is in excellent condition except for a few small cosmetic blemishes by the keyboard and one on the top edge.

Unfortunately for us we need the money and fortunately for whoever chooses to bid on this and knows what it is, this keyboard has always just worked and had NO issues."

Gibbon Digital Mutuj 4 Track Live Performance Module

Published on Apr 19, 2020 Gibbon Digital

via Gibbon Digital

"Mutuj is a 4 channel live performance module in the eurorack format. It is perfect for controlling build-ups and drops in your music, on the fly.

Main Features
4 individually controlled inputs of gate or trigger signals
Mute mode
Solo mode
Output levels: 0-5V
10HP Eurorack
+12V: 90mA max
Input impedance: 100K

Inputs are soloed by first pressing the switch positioned on the lower bottom side of the panel (solo switch), the red LED in the middle of the panel will light up indicating that any of the inputs can now be armed to be soloed (pressing the switch again will disable this function and allow muting/unmuting of the inputs normally).
Pressing any of the inputs switch will arm the specific input to be soloed once the solo switch is pressed again; the corresponding LED will turn yellow indicating that the input has been armed. Upon pressing the solo switch again, the armed input will be soloed (unmuted) and the others will be muted.

There are two ways of muting/unmuting an input, this can be selected on startup. To select which method will be used, either press and hold input 1 or input 4 switch before the module is switched on.
The first method allows to mute/unmute the input as soon as the corresponding switch is pressed, the second method will mute/unmute the input after the switch is released."

CTAG TBD meets Lyra 8 and Strämpler as insert fx

Published on Apr 19, 2020 Creative Technologies

"TBD used as stereo insert effect

CTAG TBD as in 'to be determined' is an open source eurorack audio module. All sounds and effects in this video are CTAG TBD, no extra processing! Sorry, some buzz and clicks came from a defect audio cable, it's not TBD.
It can be easily extended by your own DSP algorithms using a flexible c++ plugin architecture.
It's core feature is control of your plugin parameters through a web application UI and WiFi access. You basically log onto your TBD with a browser, choose your active plugin and modify its parameters. You can store patches per plugin. CTAG TBD recalls the last active plugins and patches upon reboot, so you continue making music where you left off.

All source (hw+sw) are available on

More introductory videos will be available on this channel soon, with specific focus on functionalities and how to add your own code.

If you are interested in beta hardware email subject 'TBD REQUEST'."
