Oblivion - Exploring Moog One with 5U Modular Synthesizer

Ariyo Shahry

"Moog One is an impressive synthesizer. I could have easily done this entire track on the Moog One (except drums). This synthesizer is so powerful and is capable of so much yet it can so easily sit within the mix. In this case it basically made the track. I went from an idea to a wall of warm analog goodness with just a simple patch on the Moog One.

The base of my modular system system is a System 66. Over time I've added other modules to my system.

Multitrack recording and drums are programed using Logic Pro X
The video is shot on Fujifilm XT3 camera body with a Fujifilm XF 56mm F/1.2 and Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 Lenses.

In this video the following modules are featured:

- Moon Modular M 569 Quad Sequential Voltage Source
- Moon Modular M 543 Stereo Output Mixer
- Moon Modular M 568 Quad Sequential Trigger Source
- STG Soudlabs Sea Devils Filter
- FSFX 102 Granular Audio Processor (5U / MU format adaptation of the Mutable Instruments Clouds)
- Dove Audio WTF Oscillator
- CorSynth C107 Quad Linear VCA/VC Mixer
- Q150 Transistor Ladder Filter
- Q106 Oscillator (VCO)
- Q109 Envelope Generator
- Q110 Noise Source"

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"Great little USB audio interface w midi. Guitar input and 2 mic inputs w phantom power for condenser mics. Works with Line 6 Pod Farm program. Software has all kinds of guitar and vocal effect and a mixer to control the inputs. The second meter has a tint crack that is barely visible. Work great. Little bit of scratchy noise when moving pots. A little cleaner would do the trick."

E-MU Systems Emax I Rack Model 1020 w/ OLED Display + HXC Drive SN 10000487

via this auction

"E-MU Systems Emax I Rack Model 1020 w/ new OLED screen and Lotharek HXC SD (SD floppy emulator drive). This EMAX is in great condition and works great.

The only issue is you need to boot the HXC drive first (than power off the unit) then power on again for full operation. The previous owner installed the upgrades so I'm not sure if something is a miss on the installation. Never bothered me enough to fix, works perfect otherwise."

doepfer a-124 vcf5 wasp filter


"please support the channel:

the doepfer a-124 vcf5 is a 12db multimode filter using the filter circuit of the edp wasp; an analog synthesizer with a black and yellow case built in the seventies. this filter abused digital inverters as analog operational amplifiers leading to distortions and other dirty effects that generate a unique character. it's equipped with a band pass output and a combined low/notch/high pass output.

once i had gathered the filters i was familiar with i started exploring other options to expand my palette. after seeing a few demos i was very intrigued by the wasp filter. it reminded me a bit of an ms-20 filter but with its own brand of nasty. in person the wasp did not disappoint.

the layout is nearly identical to a few other doepfer options which made it easy to pick up and play. it has the mid-forward tone you expect from a 12db filter. high resonance is nasty and unpredictable but won't blow your speakers (which is nice).

where this filter really shines is when you overdrive it. it sounds like a different version of itself; nice and smudgy. you can get away with high resonance and still get an even sound level; which means you can use high resonance in a lot more situations. in that way it reminds me of the korg prologue filter (another filter i adore).

i appreciate a filter with a broad range of character and the a-124 definitely has it. i wouldn't say it's as musical as a moog or roland filter, but it has a very usable range of nasty and can make unique sounding bread and butter sounds as well. a great option if you're looking to add something unique to your toolkit.

Squaver P1+ 80's Covers, Depeche Mode, Yazzo Don't Go and Axel F Beverly Hills cop with guitar synth


"In this video the Squaver P1+ synthesizer pedal is controlled via a guitar mono input (through that green compressor pedal) with varying amounts of PWM modulation from the Modulor A1.
First posted on our Instagram page, this is just a widescreen full HD edit of that video. This edit also contains the bass for "Just Can't Get Enough" just before shortly cut out cause I haven't really practiced it much :p"

AJH Synth MiniMod - an 'Introduction' ...and some sounds


"Quite a few people have asked me about the MiniMod system, which modules to start with etc, so I decided to make a simple demo showing some of the typical ways I would use it. This is just about the base MiniMod system, which can be purchased as individual modules, but in this configuration represents a fully modular version of the original Minimoog analogue monosynth. Therefore I'm only using those modules for the purposes of this video. It is directly based on the first 'R.A. Moog' issue of the instrument. If you want to see other modules from the range then check out my other videos or this playlist: [embedded below]

I was planning to make a similar video about my Roland SH-1 too, but it has issues at the moment, and I've no means of getting it serviced. This is one of the disadvantages of owning a 'vintage' synth.

Update the Typhon Firmware from a PC


"A short video walking through the steps of updating/installing the Dreadbox Typhon firmware from a PC. Check out Dreadbox's video on updating Typhon firmware from a Mac which covers similar territory, but also demos backing up and restoring your patches ( [below]

Haven't had a lot of time to play with the Typhon yet, but I'm pretty damn impressed so far. The core sound is great (oscillators, filter, and effects), and the digital control and features are well though-out and add a lot of power, especially for the price."

Savage - Boutique's: SH-01A / TB-03 / TR-09 +

Micro Banshee

"The TB-03 and TR-09 are both utilising track write and play mode with the drums and bass programmed for the track duration. The two SH-01A's are playing several accompanying sequence's during the track - with FX from the Korg NTS-1, the MyVolts mickXer is used for the input of the two SH-01A's and the Zoom H1 is being used as a pre-amp for the mickXer.

The PO-33 is direct to mix in on the TB-03, the TB-03 is direct to mix in the TR-09, with the Korg mini KP-2 adding a little reverb onto both of these.

Everything is input to both channels on the Tascam DP-004 recorder.

As always, the track is played 'live' in one take - with no DAW, editing or post production.

JoMoX AiR Base 99 Analog Drum Synthesizer

via this auction

“There are many samples of hardware as well as main sources of Xbase09. As an analog rhythm machine, it produces a wide variety of sounds. It's basically TR -909 and 808, but it's more destructive than the original. The parameter settings are unusually wide, so there are quite a lot of abnormal sounds. Not only the weight of the kick, but also the crispness of the clap and snare. The hardware is an 8BIT sample, which is rough and noisy. It can carve high range of any song. I was able to get XBASE 999 recently, and when I compare the sounds, the direction is the same. AIRBASE 99 is louder and louder. 999 has a nuance of more sophisticated analog sound. On the other hand, the rough feeling that can be taken as noisiness may not be obtained with recent equipment. There are small scratches depending on the specifications.”

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #94: Peavey DPM V2 - Song 3

Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the DPM V2. It's a 32 voice 16-part multitimbral ROM-based synthesizer with resonant digital filter from the early 90s.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
DPM V2 - 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."

""Swirl" with Roland Juno 60, Juno 106, and Jupiter 8
Today I received notice that my Jupiter X is finally being shipped after waiting since February when I ordered it! I instantly got in the mood to play these old synthesizers. I used a lot of pedal magic like the TC Electronics T2, Eventide Space, and more reverb. Thanks for stopping by and listening. I always appreciate all your feedback. Take care and have a wonderful weekend, Sam."
