Moog Subharmonicon Semi-Modular Synthesizer Sounds (with DFAM)

Published on May 11, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"The Moog Subharmonicon has been anticipated since it was the synth built during the 2018 Moogfest Engineering Workshop. It is finally here as a production synth with a few upgrades from the Moogfest version. This production version has midi, a built in quantizer, more envelope controls and a slightly different sequencer section.

The Subharmonicon is built around divider circuits. There are two VCOs that each have two dividers that output frequencies between the base frequency 1/1, an octave below 1/2, an octave and a fifth below 1/3, two octaves below 1/4, two octaves and a fourth below 1/5, all the way down to four octaves below 1/16. The two oscillators and the four subdivisions can be mixed together into six note chords that span multiple octaves, the oscillators then of course go through a Moog ladder filter. There are a pair of envelopes for the VCA and VCF.

The sequencing also works with subdivisions of the tempo clock, there are four dividers that divided the master clock from 1/1 to 1/16 in integer divisions. These four dividers can trigger the envelopes and clock the two four step sequencers. The sequencers can then modulate the pitch of the two main VCOs, or select which divisions the subdividers are set to. Since the Subharmonicon is semi-modular its has a patch bay where different signal and control routing setups can be experimented with. The patch bay also makes connecting the Subharmonicon to a Mother 32, DFAM, or any other semi-modular or eurorack synth easy.

In this video we showed a combination of the Subharmonicon by itself as well as with a DFAM for percussion and with a Cooper FX Outward V2. The sidechain style patch at 5:09 uses a Ritual Electronics Anima Function generator to create the sidechain envelope and the Subharmonicon is going through a Tiptop Echoz delay module.

Sounds of the Roland FANTOM Synthesizer: SuperNATURAL

Published on May 11, 2020 RolandChannel

"The Roland FANTOM Synthesizer is a new type of creative hub that eliminates all boundaries in music composition and live performance. Inspiring onboard production tools and deep computer integration fuel an experience that's fast, fluid, and full of possibilities. An expandable sound engine delivers Roland’s best electronic and acoustic sounds, with the depth and control to combine and shape them in exciting new ways. And you command it all via an efficient, streamlined interface and your choice of the best 61-, 76-, and 88-note keyboards Roland has ever made.

FANTOM’s creative tools continue to expand and evolve with ongoing firmware updates. To complement the instrument’s powerful ZEN-Core Synthesis System and V-Piano engines, Roland’s famous SuperNATURAL Acoustic sound engine has been recently added with Version 1.5, along with a variety of SuperNATURAL-based strings, brass, basses, vocals, and world sounds. Version 1.6 extends things even further, bringing premium SuperNATURAL acoustic and electric pianos to the mix.

Backed by decades of Roland R&D, SuperNATURAL technology leverages advanced behavior modeling to bring a new level of realism to acoustic sound reproduction. SuperNATURAL’s organic tonal and dynamic behaviors instantly connect you with the sound, fueling fresh inspiration and infusing your tracks and performances with authentic acoustic vibe.

Going far beyond static sample-based playback systems, SuperNATURAL instruments don’t just sound like the acoustic instruments they’re based on—they also respond with natural acoustic behaviors as you play them. And you’ll always experience smooth transitions between different notes and velocities, with no looping and other unwanted artifacts.

In this video, Mark takes you through the SuperNATURAL sound engine with a demonstration of the following instruments:
1:13 — Strings
2:03 — Violin
2:36 — Trumpet
2:50 — Fing Bass 1
3:10 — Alto Sax
3:21 — Harp
3:57 — Concert Jazz
4:11 — Tine MkII Trem

If you’re a FANTOM owner, be sure to sign up for a free Roland Account. Using the latest version of Roland Cloud Manager software, you can download free SuperNATURAL acoustic and electric piano sound collections for your FANTOM and explore a huge variety of sound expansions for FANTOM and Roland Zen-Core instruments.

In addition, Roland Cloud offers a growing collection of Roland virtual instruments for use in modern workflows. Producer, beatmaker, gigging musician, or just getting started—you'll find something to inspire you. The original TR-808, classic JUNO-106, powerhouse JUPITER-8, and genre-defining TB-303 are all part of the 50-plus instrument collection. And Roland's legacy of innovation evolves yet again with the new ZENOLOGY Software Synthesizer, an advanced plug-in with deep sound design capabilities and seamless compatibility with your FANTOM and all ZEN-Core hardware instruments."

junklight Set from Lines Community live event (10 May 2020)

Published on May 10, 2020 junklight

"The Amazing lines community put on a live event over this weekend & I took part. Got to say livestreaming is a lot more nerve-wracking when you *know* you have an audience :-)

I went with a more maximal setup to give me more options and places to go - and playing this back I realise I could have played for a lot longer. My do a few more sessions on this rig before tearing it down. Feels like I. could do with a hardware mixer too - push is nice but too much mode switching.

The modular is being driven using a Monome Teletype script that acts a bit like the Double Knott, Gesture Arcade setup -in this case using the TXi knobs to generate the patterns - buttons would be nicer but needs must.

The looping is driven entirely by my forthcoming app (I release software as "Pagefall" ) using only the "Fripp soundscaping" side of things although I've got rate quantisation turned on too which I thought worked nicely on the loops (although I was a bit heavy handed a couple of times switching rate - as I was on one of the piano notes at the end -nerves and hands shaking !!! :-) )

Thank you to the Lines community for running this and go and check out some of the other streams - there was so much good stuff being played."

Molasses Industries Wetlander

Published on Jun 21, 2019 Will M

via this auction

"Wetlander is an all analog organic touch synthesizer handbuilt from scratch in Richmond Virginia. It consists of a tangled oscillator/clock pair and three parameter pattern generator, intertwined in a recursive formation. The pattern generator takes its input from the clock, and in turn generates rhythmic/pattern data that feeds the clocks themselves, resulting in completely unpredictable evolving sonic structures evoking something organic and synthetic at the same time.

Furthermore, the center panel allows you to crosspatch different nodes in the synth with your fingers, allowing for flesh-based interaction/interruption of the processes being carried out.

All elements, including wooden case and manually etched pcb faceplate, were done in house. 1" - Studio 110 Synthesizer System

"The Studio-110 is our largest pre-configured Studio system. The six oscillator base cabinet is topped by a 22-space cabinet, an inverted 44-space cabinet, then a special crown piece. The system includes our 24-stage Q119 sequencer, plus two Moog-Style Q960 8-stage sequencers, sequential switches, and interfaces. The top row contains a complete three-oscillator synthesizer with dual filters. Patch cables are included with this incredible machine."

"The 505 is full, the bass is thick, the controls are simple and easy to use making it fast to create a killer sound 25 seconds after firing it up.

It does round bass, strings, fat leads and chunky pads really well. Not the synth for you if you're looking for the same sound every time you turn it on, becuase it really does vary with the slightest setting change. It's perfect for creating cool samples to reference again or to fill out that chorus that just needs some more warmth or fatness."

"Just played some factory sounds!

The Crumar BIT ONE is another forgotten buddy from analog heaven. It was used on early Madonna songs, and lots of Italo-Disco music.

The first 250 models had SSM2044 (Voyetra Eight, PPG Wave 2.x, Emulator I, Kawai K3, Kawai SX-240, Korg Mono/Poly, Polysix...), then they were replaced by CEM3328.

The BIT 99 is the very same synth, with CEM3328 and a better MIDI implementation. There's also the BIT 01, not to confuse with the BIT ONE, which is the BIT 99 expander.

The sound of the BIT is often recognized at the level of a Prophet or a Jupiter!

"The Elsita is a soviet analog machine produced from 1989 until 1991, when RMIF went bankrupt. Although being released in a pretty late period, the Elsita was built following old standards from the mid 70’s/early 80’s : fully analog (as you can see on the picture), trigger-only, with big knobs.

The Elsita has 4 channels, which are not perfectly identical, at least on my model. It sounds more like a A/B/A/B disposition (As the colors suggest actually), but they all have the same parameters. Check the oscilloscope snapshot at the back of the page!

Erica Synths Garage special - PetrosGT, Platon Buravicky & Multilux

Published on May 11, 2020 Erica Synths

"Concert ‘’Future Follows Us’’ took place on 4th of February 2020, in the concert hall Hanzas Perons in Riga, Latvia. In the second part of the concert PetrosGT (Pedro Eustache's electronica project) in collaboration with Platon Buravicky and Multilux performed an improvisation on synthesisers and a diverse array of woodwind instruments.

In his artistic and professional path of more than 40 years, Pedro Eustache has developed a highly eclectic, richly unique yet personal voice of artistic expression both as a woodwinds player, composer and researcher. He has contributed as the lead woodwinds player for the original scores of movies like Blood Diamond, War Horse, The Passion of the Christ, Kung Fu Panda, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones 4, Munich, The Lion King 2, to name a few, as well as recorded, toured and performed with artists like John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Paul McCartney, Gustavo Dudamel and Yanni among others. Eustache’s work goes from East to West, from ancient to modern and has brought him several prestige awards and global exposure as a mutlidirectional woodwinds soloist. In addition to acoustic woodwind instruments Eustache is also a wind synthesist - both analog & MIDI- with more than 40 years of experience. in this concert He plays the Lyricon Wind Driver, (vintage analog wind controller) and the Genki Wave/Wavefront ring controller to play a powerful Erica Synths multi-modular system designed by Girts Ozolins, which included prototype modules.

Platon Buravicky is a classical composer, pianist and improviser who can be considered one of the most notable contemporary composers in Latvia. His creative work is dedicated not only to symphonic and chamber music but also extends to electroacoustic music often using sound synthesis as the central tool of composing.

Multilux is the live electronic music output of Emīls Dreiblats.. Sound-wise his solo project covers genres from dark ambient to at times dark & industrial, at times playful techno the fundamentals being flowing between different perceptions. In his live performances Multilux embraces darker shades of dance music and creates the sonic environment using analogue synthesizers and drum machines.
