"Good night" Patch Feat Moog Subharmonicon, Eurorack modulation and Eventide h9 reverb

Published on May 28, 2020 Sound Provider

"Tonight I wanted to do a small ambient patch to test the Moog Subharmonicon synthesizer with modulation from some of my Eurorack module with a reverb from my Eventide h9 .

The Eurorack module I use are :
Tiptop Audio Circadian Rhythms and Z8000 Matrix Sequencer
VC Sequencer from RYO
and Quad Clock Distributor From 4ms
The clock come from the Moog and the Modular synth modulate some osc and some sub(that why sometimes it s little wrong, pretty hard to quantize everything sorry),they also modulate the timing of the modulation.

Ghielmetti Pin Matrix Kit for the Teenage Engineering POM-400


"A bolt-on kit to turn your Teenage Engineering Pocket Modular 400 into a matrix synth like the revered EMS Synthi. Instead of using cables to patch outputs of one module into inputs of another, you use the supplied pins to connect a row (output) to the corresponding column (input).

The matrix itself is made in Switzerland by Ghielmetti, the original manufacturer of the pin matrices on the EMS Synthi, EMS VCS3, ETI International 4600 and the Maplin 5600.

The kit simply bolts onto the back of the POM-400 modules with the supplied hardware - there is no soldering required. Once bolted on, it enables you to make 100% of all the patches you could otherwise make using cables, with the added benefit of having virtually no restrictions on the number of available outputs and inputs for each module. Patch cables can still be used in conjunction with the matrix for interfacing the system with external modules and running sound out from the device.

Blinds & JP-BOOO for Korg Prologue - Minilogue XD - NTS-1 - Edouard Digital | SynthFest 2020

Published on May 28, 2020 SynthFest France


"Apply PWM to any waveform!

The KORG prologue, their flagship analog synthesizer, has been the first to offer customizable digital oscillators and effects in addition to the analog ones, in Summer 2018. Then in Winter 2019, KORG has introduced the minilogue xd, bringing the same excellent features to the more affordable minilogue. Then in Winter 2020, KORG has introduced the Nu:Tekt NTS-1, an affordable and portable DIY one-voice version of the -logue family’s digital oscillator. Using the Sound Librarian software, you can upload new digital oscillators to those devices and multiply their possibilities.

MULTI Engine Type Display
While many great sounds come from the classic waveforms available in analog oscillators (the sawtooth, the triangle, the square), they are always the same and are mostly static. Digital oscillators have the power to enhance your sounds, adding interesting harmonics and textures, and even be the centerpiece."

JP-BOOO / JP-8000 Supersaw Oscillator

"Amazingly phat and powerful oscillator for the prologue, minilogue xd & NTS-1

In early 1997, Roland introduced a cult synthesizer, that was seen as a modern digital incarnation of the classic analog Jupiter-8 from 1981. Offering a very intuitive interface with 40 knobs and sliders, and a large breadth of sounds, it soon became a classic itself as it was used by The Prodigy, Nicky Romero, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, BT, Paul Van Dyk, Faithless, Dash Berlin, Pet Shop Boys, The Crystal Method, Orbital, Ken Ishii, Vince Clarke, Goldie, Dave Holmes, Groove Armada, ATB, Überzone, Ferry Corsten, Scooter, Konflict, William Orbit and Garbage.

Though it was a virtual analog—or analog modeling—synthesizer, it was digital at heart, with a lot of grit that made it perfect for all styles of electronic music. But there is a more specific reason why it became so famous and appreciated: the first of its two oscillators offered a revolutionary brand new mode, named Super Saw. Instead of the classic sawtooth, square and triangle waveforms, the oscillator would generate seven detuned sawtooth waves played at the same time on each of the voices. It allowed the creation of both harsh “fat” leads when used raw, and smooth “creamy” pads when filtered, and it quickly became the defining sound of the trance genre, and a staple of electro, techno, drum’n’bass and house....

Not everyone can buy that vintage synthesizer, as they run in the range of $700 to $900. Adding JP‑BOOO 👻 to your KORG prologue, minilogue xd or NTS-1 is incomparably easier and more affordable!

On both the prologue and the minilogue xd, you can use the Shape knob to change the Detune and Shift+Shape to change the Mix. On the NTS-1, you can use the A knob to change the Detune and the B knob to change the Mix.

Thanks to JP‑BOOO 👻, you can now use a realistic oscillator inspired by the Super Saw, along with the analog oscillators and filters of the prologue and minilogue xd, and with your favorite effects and custom modulations on the prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1.

If you have a prologue 8, you will have 8 voices, as many as there are on that cult synthesizer, and if you have a prologue 16, you will have twice as more!"

Headless Horseman Fusion System II demo

Published on May 28, 2020 Erica Synths

"Here's a demo where one of the most talked-about techno artists - Headless Horseman - explores the Fusion System II capabilities. In clips that have sequences the Elektron Analog Four MKII is used for sending all CV signals, meanwhile reverb used is Eventide H9 Max - Black Hole Reverb algorithm.

Fusion System II will be available on June 5th 2020

From the shadows to the stage, Headless Horseman's musical efforts are meticulously executed without compromise. The eponymous Headless releases sum up the modus operandi of this artist: dark, raw and rhythmic IDM flavored Techno. His hardware only live sets at Berghain, Berlin Atonal, Boiler Room and worldwide have showcased the Horseman’s insurmountable skills as a producer and cemented his place in today's techno scene."

Synth Sounds of the Narwhal

Some LFO action there.

"With the help of Inuit hunters, geophysicists recently recorded the various calls, buzzes, clicks and whistles of narwhals as they summered in a Greenland fjord. The recordings help scientists better understand the soundscape of Arctic glacial fjords and provide valuable insight into the behavior of these shy and mysterious creatures, according to the researchers.

This animation illustrates how narwhal vocalizations match their behavior. The researchers captured several types of sounds made by narwhals, including social calls, or whistles, and clicks used for echolocation, the biological sonar used by dolphins, bats, some whales and other animals to navigate and find food.

The closer narwhals get to their food, the faster they click, until the noise becomes a buzz not unlike that of a chainsaw. This terminal buzz helps the narwhals pinpoint the location of their prey.

The recordings help the researchers provide a baseline of the kinds of sounds that permeate the narwhals’ pristine habitat. In combination with sightings, they also show narwhals get closer to glacier ice than previously thought for this area and the animals do forage for food in summer, contrary to some previous findings."

I always thought they could speak (magic unicorn of the sea and all) :

Modbap Jam - EOC on Erica Synths #fusionModulator

Published on May 28, 2020 BBoy Tech Report

"So this isn’t intended to be any particular type of mindblowing musical expression but rather just an exploration of the end of cycle feature on the Fusion Modulator. EOC is common on various modules but I really dig the idea of EOC being tied to the looping EG. simple... make the EG loop (on or off) and the EOC fires at the end of every looping cycle. So many patch ideas there. Here I have EOC firing into the clock of Téte which is advancing a little sequence which is firing off plonk. That’s gonna be so fun in a more deliberate context."
