Roland SH2 / Nord Electro - From the Live Room 8

Published on May 22, 2020 Alfonse

"Get the track here:

Live jam featuring Ian Bostic on drums and Alfonse on the Roland SH2 from 1979. All synth parts originated on the SH2. Two parts were recorded later: the lead part was routed through a Boss DD7 digital delay, while for the other part, single notes were sampled from the SH2, layered, and then downloaded as a custom patch to the Nord Electro to allow chords to be played.

The Wondrous Sonic Beauty of the Fixed Filter Bank (TX Wiggles 63)

Published on May 22, 2020 poorness studios

"NOTE: Headphones or studio speakers recommended!

The Aion 907A wasn't a module I was traditionally interested in, but I found a good deal so I decided to give it a shot. Wow! This thing is really cool. In this video, I patched up a basic 2 oscillator FM patch with some subtle modulation. The 907A is like a canvas that lets you pain with frequencies."

Modulation: Periodic vs Random vs Chaotic

Published on May 22, 2020 Learning Modular

"What are the differences between periodic modulation (i.e. a normal LFO), a random CV source, and a chaotic CV source? Some may be surprised to learn that the chaotic source is actually a cross between a random source and a normal LFO: its output can be fairly consistent for a few cycles like an LFO, but then it will create its own variations on the theme. In this introductory video I demonstrate these differences, both controlling a filter cutoff (one dimension) and the two timbre parameters of a 2hp Vowel oscillator (two dimensions).

If you would like to dive deeper, I’ve created a pair of companion posts for my Patreon supporters. The first ( goes into more detail comparing these three types of modulators, including patch and application suggestions; the second ( goes deeper into explaining chaos theory and some common characteristics of chaotic CV sources.

I am also creating videos on Ian Fritz’s ChaQuO, Chaotica, and Hypster modules that will be made available to +5v and above Patrons, as well as those enrolled in the Eurorack Expansion: Extended (Tier 3) course on"

E-RM Polygogo Stereo Polygonal Eurorack Oscillator

Published on May 22, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"What is a stereo polygonal oscillator? The E-RM Polygogo uses this form of synthesis developed just for this module. The screen shows a visual representation of the sound that the oscillator is generating. When smoother shapes appear on the screen the sounds are more calm and when there are lots of particles and jagged lines moving around the screen some harsh timbres come out of the oscillator.

The Polygogo has teeth and fold parameters to add harmonics, and it also has a built in FM modulator. There are lots of synthesis options in the Polygogo and the screen is always giving you feedback on what is happening with your sound.

Polygogo available here:

Vintage MTI AO-16R 16R Auto-Orchestra Analog Synth Sound Module Drum Machine SN 839

"This is so much more than a rhythm machine or an electric drum kit. All analog (pre MIDI) drum machine (think CR78) and synth-bass (think TB303) module! It has a great organ drone and rhythm piano synth, with separate outputs for each - there are also separate synth waveform outputs! One of the coolest instruments I've ever had the pleasure of test playing. It's rackmountable, and includes the bass foot controller, and drum hand controller."

Techno Jam with Moog Subharmonicon

"On this video, I did a kind of Hypnotic techno Jam with the Moog Subharmonicon Synth.

For this one I play a lot with the Seq1 to do and improvise different rhythm.

I think I m happy enought with the synth sound to release a tarck with it later when I 'll have time to record other layers and make a better arrangement.

For this demo I use only sound from my Sound Provider Sample pack ( )

SOMA Lyra-16: "Valkyries"

Published on May 22, 2020

Pink Lyra. They are available. See the dealers on the right.

"(Try loud with headphones for the bass) So I was talking to/caught up with a friend recently. He had a play on the Lyra (PS playing a Lyra changes a man), and after his transition to drone, he asked me a good question: "What better instrument is there for drone music than a Lyra-8?".

He challenged me on it, and rephrased the question to "I bet you can't think of a better drone synth than a Lyra-8".

I asked him what the odds were, and we agreed on a cup of coffee for the winner.

I went away and had a think about it for a good 23 minutes or so, after which it dawned on me: better than a Lyra-8 for drone music is... two Lyra-8's.

Obvious, really.

So: I win, and he owes me a coffee :)

PS the included is relatively 'mild'. You should hear it when a line out is taken from each Lyra... into each Lyra. If you've ever seen the movie 'Event Horizon', you'll know what I'm talking about i.e a direct portal to hell. I'll upload an example in the near future. It could create a black hole, but it will be worth the risk as it could help out CERN with their research. And even if we do all perish in the blackness: there's worse ways to depart. I'll see you all there.

PPS the audio/video sync is off on this one. I think it is due to my being zoomed in with the camera. But it'll do for upload purposes.

Enjoy/all best

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #90: Ensoniq SQ-R Plus - Song 3

Published on May 22, 2020 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the SQ-R Plus/32. It's a 32 voice 8-part multitimbral synthesizer. It features 9 Transwaves, Ensoniq's kind of wave tables.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
SQ-R Plus/32 - Digitech Obscura - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I 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.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)

If you like it check out my other stuff and please support me on:

Enjoy :-)

AMBIENT Arpeggiator on Arturia PIGMENTS

Published on May 21, 2020 Alba Ecstasy

"75 #Ambient #Patches for #ArturiaPigments 👉

This is a reinterpretation of the Pigments part I played for 'This Path Has No End' track from my latest album, “Realm of Silence”, available on Bandcamp 👉

Played in real time here, with the Prophet REV2 (if it matters somehow!) as controller, what you hear is what you can get out of the Arturia Pigments.

You know me: I'm surrounded all the time by analog and VA, digital, FM, wavetable - whatever synths, but, from time to time, I like to explore virtual goodies like this one. Because it's not important what you use to obtain a sound, but the result. And Arturia makes really nice virtual synthesizers, easy to integrate into a hybrid mix of instruments.

All internal effects of Pigments.

Hope you'll enjoy as much as I did!

PS: This patch is not included in the above named pack, but it will be part of a new bank!"
