Hartmann Neuron - history, tutorial, sound design and demo


Published on Apr 20, 2020 synthlegends

"In this video I introduce the german digital synth Hartmann Neuron from 2001 - 2004.

The synth is very sought after and ultra rare (only about 500 units built, maybe around of 200 working today).The Neuron is based on a Celeron processor with linux system, it ist a bit dated, but you can exchange the old hard drive with a ssd drive and also enhance the RAM from 128 MB to 1024 MB. Almost all components in the Neuron can be exchanged.

First of all, I am talking about some historical facts, after that I show you how to create models with the model maker from samples, then I give an overwiew about the sound design possibilites. Finaly I demonstrate some typical Neuron sounds and conclude with a multitrack demo consisting only from Neuron sounds. In the background you can listen to much Neuron music, also the multitrack songs, everything is pure Neuron without additional mastering, effects and compression.

Have fun with this video, stay tuned and keep healthy,

Cheers, Rüdiger"

The Digital Squall (TX Wiggles 59)


Published on Apr 20, 2020 poorness studios

"This video is yet another happy accident. I was testing out the Phonogene and patched up a simple pink noise into a filter sweep. It sounded like wind. I thought to myself... can I make the rest of the squall? Well... this is what happened next. Modular can be a fun way to battle the boredom of being stuck at home."

Sound Design with Polyend Dreadbox Medusa (Ep. 2) - Mallets/Keys & how to setup the Grid for chords


Published on Apr 20, 2020 Miltos Schimatariotis

"Today we have a relatively simple sound to make and depending on how you tweak it sometimes it may sound like a mallets instrument and sometimes a keys or bell patch. Βut this is also a tutorial on how you can set up the grid to play chords in an interesting way that can help you find musical ideas and chord progressions easily."

Hello World: programming the Korg NTS-1 (part 1)


Published on Apr 20, 2020 Olivier Ozoux

"I just got the Korg NTS-1 for my first Quarantine Birthday, and while it sounds really good for a tiny digital synth, I'm really interested in the SDK and learning how to write custom Oscillators and Effects for the Korg 'logue platform.

In the first video in this series, I'm assembling the little flat-pack synth, ( it even comes with a tiny tool, just like IKEA furnitures ) and setting up the development environment on my MacBook Pro."

Tales From The Loop Music - Retro-Futuristic Cover feat. OP-Z and LUMI Keys


Published on Apr 20, 2020 Lo-fi Pask

"I did it again, another TV Show Cover! :-) Teenage Engineering's OP-Z new EP sounds were perfect to make a cover of Amazon Prime Tales From The Loop's Music Theme.

All sounds are sequenced on (and comes from) OP-Z, but I also used the Roli LUMI Keys as controller, to play some (electric) piano parts.

The Original music theme has been made by Philip Glass and Paul Leonard-Morgan.

Tales From The Loop TV Show is inspired by retro-futuristic images from Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag: in my video you'll see images from his books, like The Electric State (2017), Things From The Flood (2016) and Tales From The Loop (2014)."

Paul Hartnoll meets the new 2600


Published on Apr 20, 2020 Korg

"We headed to Brighton to meet up with Paul Hartnoll, one half of the pioneering EDM duo Orbital. The reason for the visit was to introduce him to the new ARP 2600!

Paul is no stranger to this iconic synthesiser, having purchased a 2600 for Orbital back in 1993, and is still the pride of place in his studio. Paul told us “We used 2600 a lot on the albums In Sides and Snivilisation, (particularly) on the track Kien Trink Wasser. It starts quite orchestral then jumps into a big bass drop which was the 2600. The original is all over those albums, sometimes more subtly”.

In this video, you can see Paul take a first look at the new ARP2600 FS, making some initial comparisons to the original. “The added LFO is a great addition. I love that feature”. Summarising, Paul describes the 2600FS as a “fresh, sparkly, clean (dirty) ARP - straight out of the box”.

Ableton Instrument racks Megapack - Siel DK80 polyphonic analog Italian synthesizer


Published on Apr 20, 2020 Expanding Sound

"This pack is compatible with Ableton Live Lite 9.7.7 and above.
Get the pack here http://www.expandingsound.com/product...

The Siel DK80 is an interesting analog synth of the past. It first piqued my interest thanks to a Youtube video going through the presets. It sounded like there was a ton of modulation and it had such a weird interesting vibe to it. There was kind of an old school horror feel from the VHS days flowing through my mind, so warbly and eerie. Once the DK80 was in my possession I learned a lot about what makes this synth interesting. Both oscillators are basically independent of each other, which lends itself to creating some pretty unique patches. Both oscillator A and B can be tweaked, mixed, and modulated into pretty much whatever you want. That allows for some wide stereo patches.

The name DK80 is quite fitting, as this synth oozes 80s nostalgia. If you enjoy the sounds of vapor and retrowave you'll find yourself using this pack quite a bit. This megapack includes 26 instruments and one DK80 ultimate 80s effect rack. This effect rack includes effects that I think are suitable for the time period of the synth.

I hope you enjoy it! Keep the DK80 and the 80s alive!"

"I've rack-mounted the Analogue Solutions Fusebox and have stuck to the same look 'n feel as the Generator (black,red, orange) with the orange side rails. Looks n sounds great!

Here's a little video with it, and the Nyborgs to show folks who may not have known that it's rackable.

stg/soundlabs The Boat Rocker - Drop-in eurorack PSU for 60HP Moog Boats


This one is in via Suit & Tie Guy of stg/soundlabs:

"Just wanted to let everyone know that my power supply for empty Moog Mother-32 boats is finally available. I'm sorry that it took so long, but it's been worth the wait IMHO.

Basically, it's a 1 amp per rail (+12, -12, +5) eurorack PSU for 60HP Moog boats that came with Mother-32/ DFAM/ BFAM/ Subharmonicon/ Spectravox units. Many of you have taken these fantastic synthesisers and put them into larger setups, and have an empty case kicking around and here's a nice turnkey solution for making those empty cases into something useful.

Something really cool about this supply is that it's split into two independently-regulated groups, so if you have modules that generate crosstalk across shared power rails you can further isolate them even in such a tiny case!

Also a little .VCO update, for those of you waiting on that: the production prototypes are shipping to me this week and if they check out I should be able to put them into production immediately. I already have the front panels here so I'll just be waiting on the electronics. For those of you who don't have to deal with the differences in those delays that means weeks instead of months.

Currently it's only for specifically the boats that shipped with Moog's very excellent synthesisers in the format, but eventually I will be able to offer it in packages for the empty boats they sell, Behringer boats of all types, and generic DIY case situations. However for now it is only for the Moog boats that have the holes in the back for power and 1/4" connectors. If you are super excited for these for the generic application please drop me a line, I can support that now but I'm trying to roll this out slow so that I can keep up.

Anyway, here's the product page on my webzone if you want to order one. They are $199 USD. I can't figure out how to update international shipping on Paypal's site so you'll still be paying 2016 pricing for that"

Mike Dean | The Eighth Night | Moog Grandmother

"Earlier this year, legendary hip-hop producer Mike Dean invited us into his LA home studio to capture the making of what would become 'The Eighth Night,' a standout track included in his newly released solo album.

Watch Dean flex his production prowess by building the track using sounds created with only one instrument: the Moog Grandmother. Every 808-style kick, bassline, lead, and Yeezus-style distortion effect comes from this instrument recorded in a single session.

Dean's 28-track instrumental mixtape is now available to stream or purchase. For details, visit https://mikedean420.com.

Erica Synths Fusion VCF3 tube and vactrol filter review

Published on Apr 20, 2020 Molten Music Technology

"Smooth new filter from Erica Synths the Fusion VCF3 is dark and gooey with surprising features and a wonderfully natural sound."

Erica Synths Fusion VCF3 - no talking demo



"The Fusion VCF3 is resonant 24dB/oct lowpass filter of unique design that combines vacuum tubes and vactrols, providing distinct, soft filtering. For more versatility, the independent audio mixer and buffered multiple is incorporated in the module, and, most importantly – a CV recorder that records motion of the potentiometer, so you can design advanced modulation patterns.

The Fusion Modulator is a complex, all analogue modulation source with lots of distinct features. It consists of several blocks – two EMS Synthi functionality inspired looping envelope generators with simultaneous unipolar (0V-10V) and bipolar (-5V-+5V), VCA, Noise generator and Sample&Hold. This makes Fusion Modulator a versatile modulation source for advanced modular setups, especially drone music oriented ones. Set lopping envelope generators to high frequencies and have two sub bass sound sources, use VCA to control the amplitude of the envelope signal, modulate the decay time by random voltages from S&H circuit and get ever evolving sonic awesomeness!"
