Modular Pulse

Published on May 3, 2020 George Benton

"So I tend to use sawtooth waves all the time. This time it's all pulses. The drone is 2 oscillators tuned a fifth apart with a sweeping filter. The low pattern is 2 oscillators tuned to unison. The fast high pattern is a single oscillator running through a Moog Delay. Lead sound is three oscillators, 2 at unison and one an octave higher. All pulse waves. Some reverb added."

Africa (cover) using Zeus Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

Published on May 3, 2020 GS Music

"The main synth sound on this song was made with a Yamaha CS-80, so I decided to recreate it with Zeus.
Zeus is an analog polyphonic synthesizer prototype that we are developing in GS Music, at Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Although this prototype has a 4-octave keyboard and 6 voices, the final version will have a 5-octave keyboard and 12 voices. Pitch bend and modulation wheels will be added too.

A few days ago, we were able to implement some multitimbral capabilities, so we assigned different timbres to the lower and upper keyboards. The lower keyboard is a Yamaha KX-88 MIDI controller.

Africa is a song written by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro.
The song is used in this video te show the capabilities of our synthesizers."

I wonder if this is still playing.

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #88: Casio VZ-10m - Song 2

Published on May 3, 2020 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the second song with the VZ-10m. It's a 16 voice 8-part multitimbral digital synthesizer based on Casio's iPD Phase Distortion Synthesis.

I used for the recording the following FX:
Pigtronix Envelope Phaser - Pigtronix Tremvelope - DigiTech Polara - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC for recording. To create the complete song I created and recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Silver Lining - Arbhar, Morphagene, VCV Rack, Mimeophon, Microcell, Freak, Magneto

Published on May 3, 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 recording on my Patreon page -

Here are some patch notes:
- I have a flute, kalimba, my voice, a viola, and a piano recorded into Arbhar, and I'm scanning through the different layers.
- I'm also modulating the length and the window of the grains.
- I've recorded the O Coast into the Morphagene, and I'm modulating the Gene size and Slide. I'm also sending it through some delay and reverb in VCV Rack.
- I'm using the Mimeophon and Magneto as voices, sending them to delays and reverbs in VCV Rack.
- I've recorded my son's metallophone into Microcell, and I'm modulating the position.
- I have one Freak set to two self-oscillating filters, and they are going through some overdrive with LedRover, and bit crushing with ReduXer, and they also go through another Freak set to Ferox.
- I'm using the Disting as an LFO to modulate the cutoff of Freak.
- The CV out of Morphagene goes through the Befaco VCMC to VCv Rack, where I use it as pitch information to an FM voice."

Gorgeous (mostly) Pads of the MEGAfm

Published on May 3, 2020 Morning Strategy

"I got my hands on the new MEGAfm synth from Twisted Electrons, and it's incredible. There's a crunch to it that I'm not sure YouTube will capture, but it makes playing this thing exciting and crispy. In between notes there's a quiet undercurrent of hiss and bits that makes me fell like I'm inside a sega game.

These are the first seven patches in a patch bank that will be available for download on the Twisted Electrons page. Subscribe and stay tuned for more info, and let me know in the comments what you think of this synthesizer.

Only processing is a hint of compression (Klevgrand Korvpressor) and a dash of reverb (Audio Damage EOS 2).
