How To Load Synth Presets into the PG8X VST plugin

Published on Apr 26, 2020 Synth & Sundry

"Several viewers want to know how to load preset sounds into the PG-8X VST plugin synth emulating the classic Roland JX-8P. This is because when you first load up the PG8X in your DAW, the plugin's preset banks are empty which can throw off even the most experienced producer. This is why I put up this quick tutorial.

If you want to hear the PG8X in action, listen here: [Three videos below. Additional posts here]

Free Roland JX-8P synth emulator - PG8X VST plugin

Published on Oct 31, 2018 Synth & Sundry

"Massive synthwave vibes from this synth VST plugin. It's a faithful emulation of the classic Roland JX-8P synth, taking interface cues from the optional PG-800 hardware controller.
You can hear a few patches found on the internet. The PG8X VST synth plugin can load in original JX-8P patches over sysex. You can hear some pads, leads and brassy tones in a few melodic examples of what this free plug-in can do."

Superbooth 20HE: New Kodamo EssenseFM Rackmount Desktop Synthesizer

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"Kodamo EssenseFM is a sound module with an interesting and modern touch screen interface. At the heart of the synthesizer is a 6 operator synthesizer, each voice has its own low pass resonant filter and an extensive list of fx and modulation options.

You can easily create your own fm algorithms and patches by using the touch screen, you can also draw your own waveforms with the touch screen and import wav files. You can create complex envelopes, create layers and splits with advanced options like round robin,

exclusion groups and an arpeggiator. You can create your own scales, temperaments and microtuning scales and much much more.

In terms of connections you get: eight balanced audio outputs and multiple MIDI inputs (DIN, USB & Ethernet)"

Digital vs. Analog Jam // Little deFormer 3 Synth & Sampler Groovebox #TTNM

Published on Apr 26, 2020 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"First tryout of my newly installed analog VCF 8 Dual Band SSI Filter Board. MORE INFO BELOW :)


The very first melody you hear at the beginning (unmuted part 3) is a digital VCO going through the almost resonant Dual Band SSI Filter, which is modulated by sharp, stepped random generators and an LFO. Later on, at 1:34, I fade in a bass line, which is another digital VCO through the smooth and creamy MiniProphet CEM filter, modulated by an envelope and LFO.

Gotharman‘s Little deFormer 3 can be crunchy or even totally destructively, digitally dirty, so installing one or two (or even more) analog filter boards lets you enter a whole new audio domain with the groove box."

I been tryna call
I been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe
I'm going through withdrawals
You don't even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby
I look around and Sin City's cold and empty (oh)
No one's around to judge me (oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust
Hey, hey, hey
I'm running out of time
'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby
Oh, the city's cold and empty (oh)
No one's around to judge me (oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust
I'm just walking by to let you know (by to let you know)
I can never say it on the phone (say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (ooh)
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
Hey, hey, hey

Superbooth 20HE: Supercritical Synthesizers Neutron Flux Filter

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"Supercritical Synthesizers released their Demon Core Oscillator last year at Superbooth, so we were keen to catch up with them at this years Superbooth Home Edition to see their new stereo filter the Neutron Flux Filter.

The Neutron Flux Filter is an analog, stereo, digitally controlled filter. It does not model but is can be adjusted to have the character of various vintage filters. In the future it will have user banks in which some more exotic filter responses can be uploaded to via audio files. The unit has a stereo in stereo out and or you can connect them in series and have a mono 8 pole filter.

This is the first working prototype. Some visual and feature changes might happen still. All sound that is heard is directly from the Demon Core Oscillator through the Neutron Flux Filter raw."

Superbooth 20HE: At Home With Ken MacBeth

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"Ken Mcbeth is always a regular feature at Superbooth, in fact for the past 3 years Ken has actually performed at the show. In this impromptu interview we took the time to catch up with Ken and see what he has been working on before the lockdown and discuss what life is like on lockdown for a synth designer.

Unfortunately as this was an impromptu interview on a Sunday morning recorded from home, Nick’s mic was recorded on his ear buds microphone so as a consequence the audio was not quite up to our usual caliber. However we still felt that this was worth the upload."

Superbooth 20HE: Softube Introduce Vermona Random Rhythm

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"Softtube Modular has introduced a new module from renowned modular manufacturer Vermona. Nick reviewed Softtube Modular a while back and was impressed with the resolution of the software.

Vermona Random Rhythm is an 8 channel random gate/trigger generator for your modular synth, in this case Softtube Modular. You have two different sides to the unit, real time randomness and Dice mode. Realtime means that the module is continuously generating new random values for each note value whereas in dice-mode it generates them for a complete 3/4- or 4/4-bar. In both modes, even if a bar has been diced, the sliders still influence the resulting sequence.

Softtube Modular makes these modules much more accessible to the wider world. We caught up with Tod to take a look."

Superbooth 20HE: 4ms Ensemble Oscillator and Percussion Interface

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"We actually gave the Ensemble Oscillator from 4ms an award at NAMM this year so we were happy to hook up with Dan Green to take another look at it and see how things were progressing with production. We also took a look at their new Percussion Interface module.

The Ensemble Oscillator is a unique Eurorack oscillator cluster, it blurs the lines between waveshaping and polyphony in some very interesting ways. You can quantize the oscillators to scales or a series of harmonics to get crazy and interesting combinations."

Superbooth 20HE: WMD Axxent, Time Warp and Sl3kt

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"In this video we hooked up with WMD’s Alex to check out their new modules for 2020. First of all we looked at Axxent which is an expander for WMD’s Metron trigger sequencer. Axxent gives you 16 extra accent tracks for the Metron sequencer. Taking the trigger count of Metron up to 32!!

Time warp is a two channel gated slew module. When a trigger is present the module will slew a cv signal, it can also be switched so that instead of slewing when a gate is present it can slew all the time and not slew when the gate is present. It also has a host of other features, let Alex walk you through it all…

We also took a look at WMD’s new 3 channel switch module S3lekt. All three modules are below $200. For more information check out WMD."

Superbooth 20HE: ALM System Coupe - Complete Eurorack System

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"ALM Busy Circuits System Coupe is ALM’s first foray into a complete modular system. The System Coupe ships with an arrangement of some of ALM’s most popular modules including; Pamela’s New Workout, Squid Salmple, MCO, Tangle Quartet and more. It also features a couple of unique modules to the system including a simple Mult and utility module called Milton.

The idea of the system is designed to create a full palette of modules for music making. The Squid Salmpler can be used in a variety of different ways from simple drum sampler triggering to a weird sampling delay and much more.

The System Coupe comes in a unique colour scheme, grey background with white writing and magenta and blue knobs. It is housed in ALM’s own case design and comes with their own power supply. The system should be available imminently and will cost £1899."

Superbooth 20HE: DBS Music and Omsonic Introduce New Eurorack Module

Published on Apr 26, 2020 sonicstate

"DBs Music and Omsonic have collaborated on a new module that takes the idea of probabilistic voltage control and puts it into a eurorack module. It is part sequencer, part random voltage source. Drawing from the John Cage idea that the job of the composer is to create the situation where complexity can occur.

The idea is that every aspect of a note; pitch, duration, portamento, envelope etc is under probabilistic control. So the idea is that instead of programming it like a sequencer or playing it like an instrument you set up the constraints for it to make music and then let it do its thing. As it is creating sequences you can interact with it and loop certain phrases.

For a deeper understanding of the module Phin gives us a demo of how you would build a sequence."
