Chroma Polaris various patches

Published on May 5, 2020 MIDERA

"Just some random patches on my Polaris - I just uploaded all of it, even when I accidentally reloaded patches I used before. I'm just lazy - sorry about that.

And please forgive the poor rendition of that one Bladerunner track - I just think that this one patch just sounds good with it.

And yes, I used Eventide Blackhole. I had considered also putting up a 'dry' version - but decided not to.

HAPPY 505 Day!!!

The Roland System-1 + JP-08 Jupiter-8 Boutique together as one synthesizer connected via MIDI! The System-1 is an excellent controller for other Roland Synthesizers! The JP-08 responds to everything the System-1 sends via Control Change / Sysex! It's my SYSTEM-9! Or SYSTEM-08! Whatever! Here two fantastic Galaxy Drone patches are layered and then tweaked. Inspired by Space & Meteorites, expressed with synthesizers, prepare for a REAL TRIP

SIBLING RIVALRY - (Make Noise Black and Gold Shared System + Little Sister System)

Published on May 5, 2020 Luke Sanger

"Having used the Shared System for a good few years now, I felt it was time to expand it a bit and put together a little sister system, containing some of their newer stereo modules. Inspiration for the piece comes from learning some olde folk songs on the acoustic guitar and wanting to try and translate those progressions to the synth."

R.A. Mini Moog synthesizer Model D extremely rare made in March 1971

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me.

via this auction

"Up for sale is a (1) very rare R.A. Mini Moog synthesizer Model D. The serial number is 1045, it's the 45th Mini Moog on the planet and it's manufactured in March 1971. All boards have serial number 1045 except the vco board which has serial 1043. Jim Scott, who worked with Robert Moog in Trumansburg N.Y., told a friend of mine that it was messy in the beginning days of the factory. It was quite normal that synths left the factory with different numbers on the boards inside. The most important thing is that the boards are all R.A. Moog ones. Someone installed cv / gate inputs a couple of years ago, so it's not fully original anymore unfortunately. But the cv / gate is working fine.

The synthesizer sounds absolutely awesome! The oscillators are very raw and the filter is way better than on newer Minimoog synthesizers.

The synth is just been serviced and in perfect working condition. It's running on 220v and there is an European plug installed to the lead."

Blacet Filthy Filtre VCF Frac Format

via this auction

"12 dB State Variable design
Voltage control of frequency and Q
Two position Q switch: "Filthy: X10, X100"
+/- CV mod attenuator with switchable destination: Freq or Q
VC mode select: switch or morph (LP, BP, HP, All Pass)!
Plus separate mode outs: LP, BP, HP, Notch

This is a 12dB/octave response voltage controlled filter. The design is based on the classic State Variable configuration that provides simultaneous low pass, band pass and high pass outputs. In addition, the Filthy Filtre has notch and all pass (phase shift) outputs.Voltage controlled Q is also provided with a special dual range feedback circuit that gives maximum total crunchy mind warping self oscillation. Beware your ear drums, amps and tweeters at high levels! An additional modulation input, routable to either frequency or Q through a bipolar attenuator, is a handy feature.The mode or filter type is also voltage controllable, allowing switching or morphing between low pass, band pass, high pass and all pass filter types. Separate audio outs for most filter types are also found at the module bottom.

Note : as this is a Frac module it is not power-compatible with eurorack systems (ie this needs +- 15V)

if you have a frac system however it is patch compatible with a eurorack system"

New Make Noise 0-CTRL Sequencer

"The Make Noise 0-CTRL is a patchable, clockable controller and step sequencer for voltage controlled synthesizer systems. Designed to be patch pals with the 0-Coast, it is a tabletop device whose inputs and outputs follow Eurorack standards, making it also a great partner for a modular system or another patchable tabletop synth.

- Fully analog and patch programmable, no menus or modes, what you patch is what you get!
- Sequence and Control the Pitch, Strength, and Time of your synthesizer voice, per step
- Voltage control over Stop and Direction
- Dynamic Reset, select Reset Step while sequencing
- Pressure and Touch Gate outputs for human generated events and expression
- Dynamic Envelope and Gate outputs allow for voice loudness/ strength per note
- Gate output per step for patch programming sequence behavior and triggering unique events per step
- Synchronize the 0-CTRL via the Clock In, or clock other machines with the Clock and/ or Gate Outs
- Sequence your synthesizer and play it by hand simultaneously with Sequence Interrupt
- Pairs well with the 0-Coast, Tape & Microsound Music Machine, or anything having CV Inputs


Dimensions: 5.5 x 9 x.75 inches
Weight: 1.7 lbs.
Power Requirement: +15VDC on 2.1mm Tip Positive Connector

soundmachines modulör114 tutorial videos 1 - Starting up in SYNTH! mode and first patching.

Published on May 5, 2020 Davide Mancini

"Welcome to the first part of the modulör114 tutorial video series. Stév will lead you through the most important and the less known features of this modular synthesizer in the next few weeks!

In this installment, you will go through connection and powering up the unit in SYNTH! mode (internal normalization of a simple additive analog synth structure), check the oscillators, the mixer and all the signal path. Then you will start patching generators (like the LFO) to other modules (ENVelope), up to playing with the ribbon controller through the quantizer!"

M-Audio Venom - Venomous to the Maximus [NO TALKING DEMO]

Published on Apr 14, 2020 Marshal Arnold

"M-Audio Venom - Venomous to the Maximus [NO TALKING DEMO]

Almost 10 years go M-Audio released their first synthesizer the Venom (2011). Sadly, this was also their last Synthesizer, at least to date. I remember being super jazzed about this synth after seeing videos at NAMM and seeing demos from Sonic State and others.

I had sold mine many years ago after being super disappointed in it and seems as though I was not alone. These synths now go for about $100.00-150.00 USD. When new they were quite a bit more. Anyway I picked one up about a year ago to have some fun, this video is a no talking demo of some of the performance presets. I moded a few of these, but ll audio is direct from the M-Audio Venom, no post processing was done."
