WHITE PONGO by Everett Dudgeon & Allan Ryppl

Published on Apr 22, 2020 EverettDudgeon138

"I'm unfortunately locked out of my studio space for the foreseeable future due to quarantine so I've been going through some files on my computer and decided to put a few tracks out. This one is longer and pretty chilled out.

Allan is on the Strat running through the Roger Linn Adrenelinnn iii Guitar Effects Box (Which is also doing the tribal drum beat).

I'm on the Prophet-X playing a Rhodes patch with a phaser on it and a nice blend of orchestral strings and Solina-esq synth strings near the end.


The title comes from the 1945 film of the same name."

Memories of Green (Vangelis)

Published on Apr 20, 2020 Michael Geyre

Thought this one was pretty cool. Incorporating the bleeps and bloops of an old school handheld video game into music.

"I've tried to recreate 'memorie of green' in Blade Runner
that "blip blip" sound in the back was made using that game (Ufo master blaster, 1978)
Raphael Preston had to play it (it was given to him by Vangelis)
I thought it'd be funny to show that the sound was not made using a System100 or other vintage synth .."

Sculpting Time with a Modular Synth

Published on Apr 22, 2020 MAKEN0ISE

"When we use a powerful and open-ended tool like a modular synthesizer, we have the option of doing everything all at once all the time. And it’s really easy to do it. Keep patching and patching, adding more and more, and you end up with a big beautiful mess! and that can be great. But we also have the option of bringing things in and out, increasing and decreasing density, changing ranges. Sculpting a block of time into something with more character and nuance."

Shakmat Announces 2 New Modules for Superbooth 20 Home Edition

via Shakmat:

"For this Superbooth 20 home edition, the Belgian eurorack manufacturer announces two new modules joining their catalog : the Bard Quartet, a programmable four channels quantizer, and the Dual Dagger, a compact high pass and low pass stereo filter."

The Bard Quartet

This module is an easily adjustable four channel quantizer thanks to its intuitive keyboard and simple user interface. Scale, octave shift and I/O assignation is quickly and independently editable per channel. The harmony feature lets you store and recall (with the knob and through CV) the 4 channel’s settings, making progressive harmonies, chord creation or any evolutive harmonic arrangement an easy peasy task. The module has a non volatile memory containing 80 harmonic configurations. As we all know, playing in tune is cool but controlable detuned harmony is way cooler, that's why the Bard Quartet features a micro tuning function, where each note of each channel is detunable independently!

The Dual Dagger

This module is a double sided weapon, sharpened to cut low and high frequencies. The Dual Dagger chops stereo spectrums with familiar and appropriate controls for the low pass and the high pass filter section. The Band Pass function turns the dual filter into a band pass filter, with control over frequency, bandwidth and independent resonance for each slope! The module is carefully calibrated to share the exact same parameters on both audio channels but thanks to the pan function, it is easy to unlink the cutoff frequencies of each side, which leads to a whole new territory of stereo treatments!

A Chilean synth ad. I think this is a first for the site. Looks like the TV commercial is from Audiomusica.

The end reads:

Mario Blooper Meets Chase Bliss Audio Blooper

Published on Apr 22, 2020 GLASYS

"Messing around with the underwater theme from Super Mario Bros using the latest pedal from Chase Bliss Audio - Blooper. Blooper is a looper pedal unlike any other one I've seen, there are so many fun ways to modulate and mangle your loops.

I got this idea because I've been playing some Mario recently and the first thing that popped into my head when I got this pedal is those little squid creatures called Bloopers.

Gear used (other than blooper) - Sequential Prophet XL, Studio Electronics Boomstar 4075

Korg NTS-1 Only - Cinematic Drone Music Choir

Published on Apr 22, 2020 ChrisLody

"If any more proof were needed how perfect the Korg NTS-1 is for me a new toy, it makes effortless cinematic drone music. Perfect.

This is a stock NTS-1 with no custom code installed and i'm not even using midi just to show off :) I've cranked up the Riser reverb (which seems to be a reverb and exciter or pitch shift combined) and the Ensemble modulation effect and I'm using a mix of the VPM oscillator (read FM oscillator) the Triangle wave and the Waves oscillator. It's sounds so much like a male voice choir at times its spooky.

If you need to learn how to use the Waves oscillator, see this video I made:" [posted here]

New SYNTH-WERK 3P-2020 Modular System

"Price: 19.500 Euro + optional Sequencer Complement B: 5.560 Euro"

Click the pics for full size.

From the PDF:


In 1969 Robert Arthur Moog transformed his mighty and complex 3C studio synthesizer system - due to popular demand - into a stage ready triptych of extraordinary beauty and sonic superiority. No wonder the roadworthy Tolex covered 3P rose immediate attention among artists worldwide, and therefore found its way into the hands of artists like George Harrison and bands like The Rolling Stones or Tangerine Dream. One of the most famous 3P users of all time and pioneering founder of berlin school, Klaus Schulze, bought his system in 1975 from German Artist Glorian Fricke and used it for several years for live performances as well as studio recordings. Kindly dedicated to Klaus, we considered it is about time to reengineer and resurrect this wonderful instrument to the very last detail to bring back the authentic sound and feel of the highly sophisticated beauty. With greatest respect to the spirit of the old Trumansburg days, there will be a pristine model but no such thing as a stock 3P-2020, since everything remains customizable to your very own personal taste."

"A short demo of an extremely rare 1980'ish drum machine. I think it is a further development of the SR-88 but by another company. This kind of flexible programming is what the DR55 really is missing."

This is the first demo of one on the site. Moby had one for sale here.

SB20 Karusell home alone

Published on Apr 22, 2020 Alex4

"As part of the SuperBooth20 Home Edition we have found a temporary home for our beloved modular karusell in the Große Hamburgerstrasse 36 in Berlin Mitte at the gallery gh36 operated by Adam Chalk.

Our vision is to provide a privat space for everyone to explore the karusell and the surrounding instruments, such as the Haken Continuum as a field of experiementation and exploration.

Wether you are based in the modular scene, the intrumental side of music making or DJing does not matter. You can pick up your intrument and feed it through the karusell or run your vinyl collection through it. Many different scenarios are possible. One can always record their sessions and take them home. It is also possible to play a gig for the street as we have installed a speaker on the outside of the gallery. To set up a privat appointment contact Mr. Adam Chalk via Up to two people will be allowed for each session.

There is no general booking fee required while a small donation to the gallery is welcome."
