Ciat-Lonbarde STUBERBRO

"three guys vocal technique" is a formal extension of Beck's "multivoice." Consider trying it in your next project. The first guy is a normal announcer. The second is a weird or gruff voice, something to add texture. The final guy is secret, a whisper, something to add mystique.

Dudero Singing is related to "three guys," because it is a great way to inspire the weird guy. You take a synth like the stuber with rich inputs, and mangle it a little, and try to sing that. It can mangle lyrics and channel frustration into something mysteriously entertaining.

Thanks to Stu Mostofsky for being the original "Stu" in "Stuber!"
That was back in Baltimore. The brain scientist liked his eccentric synths, and svengali to the weirdo scene. Well I had this stereo filter, it was real wet, but we needed to add some Ciat to the Lonbarde, so it got the digital octave divider. The rest is history!

DIY Project #42: Bastl Instruments Propust

Published on May 30, 2020 poorness studios

"For my next DIY project, I built one of the Bastl Propust kits. I wasn't really looking for a fixed filter but but its cheap and they're weren't any demos on YouTube, so I decided to build one. It's actually a pretty useful little module. For being 2HP and passive, it's a good addition to any rack."

Akai VX600 Programmable Matrix Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

SN 306215-00021 ?

"Rare, very cool 6 voice 12 oscillator digitally controlled Akai analog synth from 1988. If you're looking for this you probably know what it is. The 'matrix' in the name means you can route modulation in weird ways, a bit like a modular synth. I bought this in 2017, after years of waiting for one to appear on eBay, from a boutique synth seller who fully serviced the VX before selling it to me. It's been used in a smoke-free home studio setup since then, and well taken care of. Backlight has been replaced, everything functions as it should. I'm including a Roland M-256E memory card that works with this unit. Power is Japanese but a US convertor will also be supplied."

ThreeTom Modular New batches & Summer Deals!

via ThreeTom Modular

"In the coming two weeks I expect to start on a new batch of assembled Steve’s MS-22 modules. I’ll also be receiving a new batch of PCB/panel sets. These will be the last batches until autumn/winter as I’ll be taking a break from production to work on two new modules.

To give these new batches a little boost, I’m offering two deals until the 14th of June 2020:

Pre-order a Steve’s MS-22 module and get a free “Technomancer” illuminated blind plate

Pre-order a Steve’s MS-22 PCB/panel set and get a free Wiretap panel

Please note that these free items will not automatically show up in your cart. I’ll add these to your order manually after you’ve made your payment.

I expect to ship the assembled modules somewhere in the last two weeks of July (and with a bit of luck maybe sooner). The PCB/panel sets should ship as of the 8th of June.

Don’t wait too long before ordering, the last batch of Corona kits sold out in a matter of hours!"

Bontempi Minstrel Alfa keyboard demo

Published on May 29, 2020 Alfonse

"Bontempi Minstrel Alfa HB402 keyboard (1983)
All sounds you hear in the track were made using the Minstrel Alfa. All parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, delay and reverb were added as required. I sampled the piano voice and played it as a virtual instrument in order to access lower notes than are possible on the Minstrel keyboard itself - otherwise these tunes end up being a bit heavy on the upper-mids. Individual drum hits were sampled and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the Minstrel.

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from retro classic keyboards together with current production tools. The Minstrel is a super-simple keyboard from the early 80s with analogue drums and (I think...) analogue voices as well.

Buchla Cosmic Drone - Session 20 - Modular Drone Music Performance

Published on May 30, 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 twentieth session involves a drone featuring two independent Buchla style complex and modulation oscillators drifting in and out of tune. There are also other sound elements such as filtered pink noise and bell-like tones. 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.

My DNA controls a modular synthesizer - rs6025

Published on May 30, 2020 Giorgio Sancristoforo

"In this video the F5 gene of my chromosome 1 (Exons and introns) is used to program a modular synthesizer ( Shuttle System).

Blocks of 16 codons are used to control 16 parameters of the synthesizer like frequency, amplitude, filters cutoff, envelopes, FM modulations etc.

The experiment is a continuation of my sci-art research on my whole genome, which started at the EU's Joint Research Centre in 2019.

This particular gene was chosen due to SNP rs6025 in position: chr1:169,519,049.

70s JHS SD-1 Pro-Rhythm Synth Drum Pad + Stand

via this auction

You can find a demo of one here.

"Rare JHS SD-1 Pro-Rhythm Analogue Drum Synthesizer from the late 70's from John Hornby Skewes (JHS).

The item has just had a fully service so works perfectly and was from my collection which I am in the process of selling.

The SD-1 is a battery powered drum synth with sound shaping controls and a rubber pad which, when hit, triggers the analogue circuitry for an infinite variety of possible sounds from deep bass to high pitches to sweeping disco tones.

The JHS Pro–Rhythm is a self contained drum synthesizer,featuring two V.C.O.s', a ring modulator, resonance control, L.F.O., white noise source, a sweep generator for oscillators, area V.C.A. Section. Thanks to it's advanced features and state-of-the-art circuitry, the JHS Pro Rhythm offers the modern percussionist an expanded form of electronic musical expression previously available only to guitarists and keyboard players.

The control panel is rim mounted and designed for easy accessibility and fine adjustment, the control themselves are rationally laid out, and easy to operate."

From DAW sketch to DAWless song with the Elektron Octatrack MkII

Published on May 30, 2020 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised track, performed entirely on the Elektron Octatrack MkII. Still in the island cabin, I decided to load some old stems into the Octatrack and see what happened.

Before I got into this all-hardware approach, I stalled out for years making fragments of songs in DAWs; it was really only the immediacy and performability of hardware that got me finishing electronic music with any regularity. So I thought I'd find something not too dusty and transfer it from DAW to DAWless. These are the results.

All the loops are my own, and made primarily with Maschine. Sounds come from a variety of Maschine-compatible formats, including Arturia's V Collection and the Korg Gadget series, as well as the Maschine sample library (the 808, in particular). The main loop of the song adheres pretty closely to my original DAW sketch.

But it's really the Octatrack that takes this from a sketch to a finished song. First, I created an entire second section with the Octatrack, a 'chorus' where the samples are chopped and pitched to a new progression. Second, and critically, I use the Octatrack's scenes to add variation to the samples, to progress through the song from a beginning to an ending, and of course to make things get wild and weird. Scenes are Octatrack magic.

Performed live and uploaded as is, with some limiting on the master (I used the Octatrack's master-level compression for most of the dynamics-shaping)."

Three Body Prototype Sounds

Published on May 30, 2020 SCHLAPPI ENGINEERING

"A brief exploration with the Three Body, a triple digital FM/PM oscillator based on an FPGA platform.

I kind of drifted into harsh noise by cross modulating all three of the oscillators but it is also capable of the prettier side of FM.

No processing is used and all stereo FX are generated by phase modulation, two Maths (not shown) were modulating the phase and frequency indexes (build in analog VCAs).

The Three Body is expected to be available late fall/winter 2020, price TBA."

Brums, a Max For Live Drum Synthesizer.

Published on May 30, 2020 suis-je fou

"Brums is an advanced drum synthesizer.
4 Operators creating 4 differents drum sounds.
Each Operator have three sound sources with short envelope. Two oscillators, one noise source with 3 different resonant filters, a tape delay, a little reverb, an overdrive and many other abilities like random panning, unstability, gated random delay time, FM possibility between the two oscillators, dephasing, 4 different waveforms for each oscillator, LFO, many velocity routing possibilities etc.

Brums is close to the famous and great Microtonic by Soundcharge, but more focused on sounds.
This device is able to send Each Operator sounds to separate audiotrack, which is useful to add audio effect and mix only one Operator.

Brums is a free Max for Live device, it’s thousands hours of work, but fuck audio capitalism, we want to make music, not money !
