Moog SUBHARMONICON & DFAM Techno Workout

Published on May 9, 2020 JAkoGreyshire

"Subharmonicon sequencers are going through a Disting dual quantizer and back to the VCO inputs. Cool trick I found this time was the DFAM trigger output into the DFAM's "VCA EG V" input. This input is only available on the Workshop DFAM."

Microbrute, Repro 5, PG8X & Legend Synth Music

Published on May 9, 2020 Synth & Sundry

"Three atmospheric and melancholic synthesizer tracks capturing sidelined scenes on the banks of the Thames. Enjoy the warm analog synth textures wash over the foliage and utilitarian architecture of the river.

00:00 Arturia Microbrute and U-He Repro 5 VST (Prophet 5 emulator)
02:34 Arturia Microbrute
3:50 Legend VST by Synapse Audio and PG8X VST (Minimoog and Roland JX8P emulators respectively)

The Arturia Microbrute is monophonic analog synthesizer with a compelling analogue tone and focussed set of controls to dial in your sounds. There is no patch memory, so every sound needs to be programmed by hand for each track.

The U-He Repro 5 is a recreation of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. The first popular and (relatively) affordable polyphonic analog synth. The convincing recreation of the classic synthesizer is paired with a collection of effects to round out its sonic goodness.

You can hear the Legend VST in action in this dedicated video [posted here] This is a VST homage to the Moog Minimoog monosynth.

The PG8X is a free VST recreation which we have covered before [2nd video here] It has a convincing classic polysynth sound that is faithful to the Roland JX8P and a pleasing interface panel with all the design queues from the venerated synthesizer.

I made this song around a year ago, and performed it live a few times, but it was only just recently that I finally got to recording it and making video* for it. It's the second one among my anime/J-pop inspired songs. This time the inspiration and the title came from Sailor Mars / Rei Hino character from Sailor Moon anime.

* Video is the collection of clips from Sailor Moon anime series that feature Sailor Mars mixed with footage of my live performance of this song at Decrunch 2049 demoparty in June 2019.

BeatPPL Podcast 69 - Interview w/ Roger Linn

Published on May 9, 2020 BBoy Tech Report

"Roger Linn joins the conversation in this exclusive interview on Beatppl Podcast episode 69.

More on Roger Linn...
In 1988, he designed the innovative MPC60 MIDI Production Center for the Japanese Akai Company, with his signature appearing on the product’s front panel. Combining a sampling drum machine with a real-time MIDI sequencer, this product gradually became the industry standard in the production of hip-hop, dance and related music styles throughout the 1990s, and has been credited as a significant influence in the evolution of hip hop music. This was followed in 1994 with the enhanced MPC3000 and others. In addition to these designs for Akai, he also helped design products for a variety of companies during the 1990s, including the Japanese Roland company."

KRAFTWERK tribute to Florian Schneider 1947 - 2020

Published on May 9, 2020 Redmartian

"These are just a few clips I posted on Mastodon as a tribute to Kraftwerk's Florian Schneider. They feature some elements that brought his personality and humor to the band. His skill as a radio telegrapher featured in Radioactivity. While they repeat the main lyrics "tune into the melody" becomes "tune into the KRAFTWERK" in morse code. His use of the vocoder and mellotron on Radioland and of course the Texas Instruments Language Tutor which was featured on Computerworld.

These are just in the moment posts, mostly 1 minute or less made for social media and are not complete cover versions. All backing music was recreated and sequenced using MIDI or played live on vintage analog synths."

Synthspace - Virtual Reality Modular Synthesizer

Published on May 7, 2020 Bright Light

"Support this project on Patreon and try this build today in VR or on Desktop!

Synthspace is my attempt to capture the physicality of a modular synthesizer in a virtual instrument!"

via the Patreon page:

"Hi, I'm Markus. I'm an XR programmer by day, but I'll always be a musician at heart.

Whenever a new technology arrives, my first thoughts are: how can I use this for making music? So you can imagine, when I first tried Virtual Reality - I knew at an instant that this was going to change the way we make music forever! The fantastic thing about VR is that it frees us from our screens and mice and keyboards. Suddenly we can use our hands again and we have the entire room to play in.

Synthspace is my attempt to capture the physicality of a modular synthesizer, while adding in all sorts of magical bits that are only possible in a virtual world. VR is the exciting part, but I want to create an instrument that is fun and flexible and ready whenever you need it, so I'd love to have it available on as many platforms as possible (VR, Desktop, Mobile). And I'm working towards supporting multiple users working together in the same virtual space.

I've spent countless evenings and weekends on this project, and now I'd love to take it to the next level and work on it full time! If you like the idea and see the potential, please see if you can support me in any way. Every little bit helps and I'd love to bring you along on this journey!"

Old Casio through Bass Station II filter

Published on May 8, 2020 Alfonse

"Best listened to on speakers or headphones with a good bass response. I love the analogue "super-drums" on this 1985 Casio MT-52, so I tried running them through the external input on the Bass Station II and hitting them with its filter section. On the high-pass setting, adding overdrive gave a nice saturated flavour and switching the slope from 12dB to 24dB with the resonance cranked up brought out the sub-bass in the kicks. Everything was recorded straight to four-track tape on a Tascam Porta05 Ministudio. A Zoom MS-50G multi-effects stompbox was used for a reverb send during mixdown."

Buchla Cosmic Drone - Session 17 - Modular Drone Music Performance & Exploring Iannis Xenakis

Published on May 9, 2020 The Galaxy Electric

"Thanks for listening! Come on a musical voyage with us where we'll send you a new song every day, a cosmic story, and a chance to earn space treasure:

Relax and tune into our live weekly improvised Drone Sessions. This seventeenth session involves a drone featuring two independent Buchla style complex and modulation oscillators starting in tune a couple octaves apart. As the oscillator frequencies drift apart by way of manual control, beating ensues. Listening to droning oscillators can serve as mindfulness sounds as there is no sudden changes in sound. Just smooth drifts in pitch and the resulting beat frequencies. Drones can also serve as an ambient track to have on while doing tasks that require intense focus. Drones are also great for a Sci-fi film soundtrack. The slow yet progressive nature of a drone performance can help one focus on tasks without distraction. The fact that we are manipulating these oscillators live and in collaboration helps the drone meander ever so smoothly in an evolving fashion as we are always reacting to one another's subtle movements. These movements are improvised so there is an unrehearsed and reactive ebb and flow to the tones generated. Engage in the practice deep listening with us.

The electronic music instruments used in this performance of modular drone music are the Buchla Music Easel and a cosmic vocal drone setup using two Boss RE-20 Roland Space Echo pedals.

Octatrack Tutorial Video: Sidechain pumping effect!

Published on May 9, 2020 EZBOT

"In this short tutorial I show you one way to make the sidechain pumping effect on the Elektron Octatrack! Using trigless trigs the and the LFO set to an inverted exponential wave, you can create a ducking effect on the sequence steps of your choice. Setting the LFO to ONE means that the LFO will only cycle ONE time. Effectively turning the inverted exponential wave into a very functional envelope! Yay! Watch the video, it's so easy!"
