Patch of the Week 72: Multi-octave “32nd-note” Arpeggiator


"For our last exploration of 'beyond bass,' we dive into volca bass to create a super-cool multi-octave arpeggio, and go on to use a tempo-synced LFO to make 16 steps sound like 32."

62HP EP2: Sample And Scratch Groovebox

Perfect Circuit

"For this second episode of 62HP we put together a groovebox system that combines sample based sounds with a simple synth voice, effects and a pseudo scratching sound with a fader for cutting the sound.

The ALM Squid Salmple generates most of the sounds with it's 8 channels of sampling. Everything is sequenced with the Malekko Varigate 8+. Erica Synths Pico Voice is used for a synth line and the Pico DSP adds effects to the case. The "scratch" sound is made with a sample looping on the Squid Salmple, the pitch is modulated with the Soundmachines LS1 and the sound is cut in and out with a Jesse Dean Designs JDDX2R Fader. Everything is housed in an Intellijel Palette case and the 1U Quadratt is used as a mixer.

Module List:

ALM Squid Salmple
Malekko Varigate 8+
Erica Synths Pico Voice
Erica Synths Pico DSP
2X Soundmachines LS1
Intellijel Quadatt

Aquatic Ambience (Donkey Kong Country) Live Synth Cover


"Aquatic Ambience from Donkey Kong Country for SNES has always been one of my favorite video game underwater themes. Here is my live synthesizer arrangement of the song. All sounds performed simultaneously without any backing tracks or overdubs.

Get a download of this track on Patreon:

Technical details:

This song was pretty tricky to arrange in my style even though it's pretty downtempo / chill. I wanted to stay quite close to the original arrangement by the fantastic David Wise, and there were a lot of different sounds to recreate and figure out how to do in one go.

I ended up creating a bunch of new percussion samples and mapping them to the arcade buttons as well as layering some of them with the bass. For example, the snare that comes in the second half is unmuted with an expression pedal and layered with the bass notes that I play with my pinky.
I enjoy finding solutions for this stuff, it's like a puzzle game. :)

The bass sound itself is the Boomstar 4075 through Polyverse Gatekeeper (for the arpeggiated effect).

For my right hand, I split the Prophet XL into two sounds: The bottom half is a pitch shifting string and the top half is that "guitar feedback" type of sound. The split point is set up in a way that lets me trigger both sounds with one chord at a certain point. Those dreamy arpeggios are played on the Prophet 6 (Valhalla's free plugin "SuperMassive" is the awesome reverb) and the main melody is an Arturia MicroBrute through a few pedals (Red Panda Tensor and MWFX Judder). The piano is Spectrasonics Keyscape, flute is SWAM Flute (both those sounds are played on the Korg MicroKey).

Phew, I think that covers it! :)

MIDI Designer layout for Crumar Bit 01 w/ Tauntek Mod

via MIDI Designer

"With the great firmware update by Bob Grieb ( it's finally possible to control all parameters of a Crumar Bit 01 via MIDI. This MIDI Designer layout for the iPad has been tested with a Crumar Bit 01, but should in theory also work with a Bit 99 and to some degree also with a Bit One. Since I only have a Bit 01 here, I couldn't test it myself, but comparing the CC maps of the three synths they look basically compatible (Bit 99 does not have Detune / Noise though, but CC's are otherwise identical).

Note: To use this layout please ensure your device is in Lower, Edit (Address) mode. CC's are only accepted in this mode. Please also note that you will exit this mode when changing a program (e.g. via the Up/Down steppers in this layout). So, after changing a program you'll need to manually enter the Lower, Edit (Address) mode again."

Roland System 100m D-Set Vintage Analog Modular System

"Here we have Roland's System 100m, their classic compact yet super powerful analog modular system. This set of modules is the most popular configuration that was available (known as the D-set) and includes the 150 Sample & Hold / LFO / Ring Mod, 112 Dual VCO, 121 Dual VCF, 130 Dual VCA, and 140 Dual Envelope / LFO. Of course these modules are not simply limited to their listed functions and include several convenient 'extras' such as 3 channel mixers built in for audio and CV inputs and well thought out duplicates and attenuated options for certain outputs.

The conveniences don't end there, the included keyboard connects straight to the front of the 191J enclosure and is normalled to relevant connections around the system. Simply bring up the first CV input attenuator on either oscillator and switch the envelopes to gate input for quick direct control without having to patch. The base of the 191J includes several multiples, 1/4" to 1/8" jack converters, and an output converter for splitting connections and interfacing with other equipment during patching.

The compact yet all encompassing design of this system makes for a welcoming, approachable instrument that only requires simple patching to make some truly great and classic sounds! But of course, its a modular system - patches can quickly gain complexity and there's plenty of room for deep exploration even with these five standard modules.

As with any vintage Roland, the System 100m has an incredibly nice sound, rich and powerful yet very clean and musical. It is especially strong with sequenced basses and gliding subtractive leads but has incredibly deep audio rate modulation and liquidy filters that certainly give it a natural home in more experimental music as well!

This System 100m set was just fully serviced and cleaned by our in house electronics technician. It has been fully tested and is working wonderfully with no crackly pots or switches and solid patch connections on all jacks. There is a proprietary keyboard connection cable and five power cables included to power each module at the rear. Finally, this sale includes the original 181 49 note keyboard with built in portamento, transposition, and bender. This is a great classic modular setup for anyone looking to get the full 1980s Roland experience!"

"Rack version of VL1 keyboard, giving 2 voices (monophonic, duophonic, or unison) of Yamaha's pioneering & still much-vaunted VL Virtual Acoustic synthesis technology. As if that's not rare enough... this one also has a USB floppy emulator allowing using standard FAT-format USB sticks to load/save, instead of old disks! It's one of the good emus, which can load/save right to USB, instead of needing disk images. 1000 folders per USB stick are usable as virtual disks at any time; you just select one then read/write it."
