606 Day 2020 - 3 Roland TR-606 Drum Machines + ACE TONE mono Mixer = Delicious Distortion

Published on Jun 5, 2020 FizzFunkTV

"Fizzing Funksters presents Lord Drumatix on 3 Roland TR-606 Drum Machines mixed with the Ace Tone MP-40 4 Channel mono mixer.

The Roland TR-606 (also known as Drumatix) has 6 analog synthesis generated Drum sounds:- Bass Drum, Snare, Hi and Lo Toms Hi-Hat and Cymbal. Easy to program (16 step buttons, no knowledge of music theory needed). Snare, Hi-Hat and Cymbal can be a great fit if you need some 808 flavour. 2 electronic toms that are musical rather than electronic sounding (I'm biased so I'm not going to say they are the best analog toms). Easy to make a pop song with, but you have to team it up (or should I say Din Sync it up) with the TB-303 (That's what we did for our track Machine Music - see our music video on this channel).

The Ace Tone MP-40 is a simple Mixer with great sounding distortion (just input a drum machine and select the mic switch) great eq and an on board spring reverb that would not be out of place in a Kraftwerk"

Fantasy Soundtracks Ep:2 - 'Zombie'

Published on Jun 6, 2020 DreamsOfWires

"2nd of a series of simple patches and recordings inspired by some of my favourite vintage sci-fi and horror from the cinema and TV. I thought it'd be a fun idea to see what I can do with a simple setup, perhaps ony 2 analog synth voices, and modest digital effects. The synthesizer soundtracks of the 70's and early 80's were often very simple, spartan compositions, which is what made them special I think.

In this instance I'm using my AJH Synth Eurorack modular synth: The Dual LFO, CV Mix, and Sample & Hold modules are the brains of the piece, modulating the two voices. The Precision Voltages is also being used as a kind of faux keyboard to shift the pitches of one of the three VCO's melodically. Noise from the Entropic Doom module is being filtered by the Fixed Filter Bank 914. Some EOS2 Reverb is used on the melodic voice, and just a little on the percussive track.

I'm not a big fan of zombie movies anymore, but this memorable scene from Lucio Fulci's 'Zombie Flesh Eaters' still remains my favourite moment from any such film, and has stood the test of time well. I think it's a bit of a classic.

Can I turn my modular synth into a guitar pedalboard?

Published on Jun 6, 2020 poorness studios

"Well this was a fun experiment. I decide to make a crude guitar pedalboard out of my modular synthesizer. Obviously, you could do this in a much smaller case if that was the intent... but it was a fun experiment nonetheless.

The 6 Eurorack modules I used were: Doepfer A177-2, Pittsburgh InOut, Make Noise Phonogene, Doepfer A-124 Wasp, Alright Devices Chronoblob, & WMD Pro Output. I also used a M Audio SP-2 damper pedal and a Roland EV-5 expression pedal for the foot controls."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 10

via this auction

This appears to be one in this recent video.

"If you've been looking or longing for a Prophet 10, this is the one to own. In what is essentially dual Prophet 5s in one enclosure, this monster synth has been fully refurbished and works beautifully, a MIDI kit installed, factory-patches loaded, and it's in Excellent condition for its age.

Upon completion of its refurbishment, this synth has been extensively tested gone through extended burn-in to ensure it is stable.

Details of what has been completed includes (but is not limited to):
Rebuilt power supply - replaced all caps, rectifiers, regulators
Replaced all polarized caps throughout the synth
Both CPUs replaced, Both USARTs and all TTL 5v logic chips were replaced
Both Pratt-Reed keybeds have been rebuilt, an extensive and time-consuming process
MIDI kit installed (demoed in second half of the linked YouTube video)
Cleaned and lubricated all pots
All voices calibrated, are in tune, and trigger perfectly and consistently thanks to the keybed rebuilds
Note that the cassette backup drive is no longer functional as it was rendered obsolete by the MIDI kit installation
Original factory patches have been loaded
The detailed report / invoice is available to the buyer.

A custom flight case on casters is included as part of the purchase.

Don't forget to check out the linked video from Bell Tone Synth Works where the owner Alison discusses what ailments the P10 came in with and much of what was done to refurbish the synth. She also plays my P10 midi'd to a second P10 they had in for work for a few minutes - it's pretty awesome."

"New album here:

Thirteen years after the release of his original synthesiser concept album, Twenty Systems, Benge brings you a follow-up of sorts, the similarly themed Thirteen Systems, an album of modular explorations, showcasing his evolving fascination with these modular machines

The pieces were originally commissioned by the newly formed Modulisme radio broadcast, Philippe Petit’s project to bring the music of underground modular artists together and provide a platform for the burgeoning electronic modular music scene that has been building momentum in recent years

There is one significant difference in the approach Benge took in the creation of this new Systems album compared to his first incarnation. The previous album used overdubbing techniques to layer the sound of each synthesiser upon itself to build up the tracks, but on this album Benge took the decision to play each piece in real time, without overdubs or edits, creating each piece as a live performance. This meant setting up each instrument in advance and either letting it play along by itself, or interacting with it as the pieces develop in various ways. Each performance was filmed and there is an accompanying 60 minute video that goes with the album

Track listing:

01 - 1967 Buchla 100
02 - 1968 Moog 3C
03 - 1969 EMS VCS3
04 - 1970 ARP 250005 - 1971 Buchla 200
06 - 1972 Serge Modular
07 - 1973 Emu Modular
08 - 1974 Paia 4700
09 - 1975 Polyfusion 2000
10 - 1976 Formant Modular
11 - 1977 Korg PS3100
12 - 1978 EMS Polysynthi
13 - 1979 Roland 100M

Written and Performed by Benge at Memetune Studios, England

Designed, filmed and edited by Benge

A drone for Disquiet Junto 440: scales scrapped off a fish

Published on Jun 6, 2020 junklight

"I take part in the Disquiet Junto project from time to time. I find it pushes me into places I don't normally take my music when given constraints.

This week the instruction was simple 'There is just one step: Throw off the shackles of A440 and make a piece of music in your favorite alternate tuning.' I'd coincidently been reading about Alvin Lucier and had already bought a cheap SDR because of his interest in radio so this seemed the direction to take.

The piece when I played it turned into being a drone

Yamaha PSS580 Melody Memory and a Tascam Porta-05

Published on Jun 5, 2020 Alfonse

"Synth jam recorded straight to 4-track cassette tape on the Tascam Porta-05 Ministudio. Featuring a bass arpeggio recorded (slowly) in the Yamaha PSS-580 melody memory, then played-back at a higher tempo to tape, with occasional notes played live with another voice. The Casio HT-700 was used for the higher filtered synth riff and some classic filter-sweep chords. Effects were provided by a Boss DD7 digital delay and a Zoom MS-50G multi-effects stompbox (for reverb during mixdown).

Cosmic Drone - Session 21 - Modular and Vocals Drone Music Performance

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 twenty first session involves a drone featuring 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 oscillations can serve as mindfulness sounds as there is no sudden changes in sound. Just smooth drifts in pitch and the resulting beat frequencies adn other ambient complimentary fragments of sound. 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.

Live coding the Digitakt with ORCΛ


"In this video I use ORCA to sequence the Elektron Digitakt! The melodic sounds are single cycle wave forms and the chords are Sequential Rev 2 sampled into the Digitakt. Drums are stocks sounds that I have tweaked to fit the composition. Regarding ORCA, the bass/detuned leads are sequenced by a scale sequencer with a random gate generator, drums are using a random gate generator, and the plucks are sequenced by a random arp generator. Those are my naming conventions strictly to describe the actions ORCA is producing. Want to know how I did it? Join my Patreon for behind the scenes video's with explanations.

The Arduino-Solina V2.0

Andreas Remshagen

"I experimented with Arduino-Synthmaking and found an Arduino-Solina String-Synth Device running with Midi made by Morocco Dave and Jan Ostman. I made a modification by adding a second Arduino for building a Stereo-Device for a lusher String-Sound.

Yah, i know its not a real solina or a strings synth but i never had build such a Device easier and cheaper.Its a nice Solution for using strings-effects. I only use the clean sound in this video-if you take effects as reverb, delay, phaser and a filter you will get a very nice sound
