Polyend Tracker: First Impressions of the Tracker Workflow

Perfect Circuit

"The Polyend Tracker brings the Tracker sequencer workflow from the computer to this custom piece of hardware. If you are used to XOX or other styles of sequencers the Tracker with its top to bottom scrolling and hex code messages might seem confusing. The Polyend Tracker features a fill mode that adds randomized values into a sequence within a controllable range to get things going faster.

Since Trackers are sample focused the Polyend Tracker has a built in radio for you to sample from if you are looking for inspiration. It also features a performance mode with lots of effects that can be switched around in realtime to change things up. In addition to playing back internal samples the Tracker can be used as midi sequencer for your external synths.

The Polyend Tracker is available here:"

Let's Play with Laplace (Drunk)

Tim Webb

"To celebrate the site's 9th Anniversary, and my 41st birthday, I wanted to do something special for this Let's Play! One of my favorite YouTubers is Hannah Hart, and her My Drunk Kitchen Series (, so in an homage to her I am proud to present: My Drunk Synthn!

Webb Family Margarita Recipe
Ice Cream Maker Version - 2 servings:
• 45mL Jose Cuervo: Gold Tequila
• 15mL Triple Sec (I like DeKuyper, but most will do fine!)
• 50mL Frozen Limeaid Concentrate (Minute Maid is my favorite)
• 133mL water (RO, or Distilled is preferred, but tap will do.)

Blender Version:
Same, but swap the water with about 125mL of ice."

Ernesto Romeo Reflects on His Inspirational Experience at Moogmentum in August, 2019.


"Ernesto Romeo, musician, founder of Klauss, and beloved professor of electronic music, living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, reflects on his experiences at Moogmentum, the grand opening celebration of the Moogseum that took place August 13-15, 2019. Ernesto traveled from Argentina especially to attend Moogmentum, and was deeply inspired by his interactions with Herb Deutsch, Patrick Moraz, Larry Fast, and Lisa Bella Donna, as well as other guests at the three day event. You can read more about Moogmentum on the Bob Moog Foundation website:

Thank you Ernesto, for making the long trip to be attend Moogmentum, and for sharing your wonderful spirit and knowledge with all of us."

Roland TR77 jam

mick frigerio

"Session with Korg MS20, Roland 101 (System 100), Mod. Roland TR77 (All Drumsounds), Gibson LesPaul, Hiwatt DR103, Recorded on MCI 16 Track.

The tr77 runs with a tubbutec unipulse midi interface. I changed a lot of resistors and capacitors on this machine and put some potentiometer on it for the volume of the drum sounds and the release time of cymbals, hihat, maracas, tambourines etc."

via this auction

"The Monopoly is an analogue beast and a personal favourite of ours. Released in the early 80's It is both monophonic and polyphonic. It has 4 VCO's which can be shared in 4-voice Polyphonic mode, or linked in unison for a huge monophonic lead. The synth has many more great features which make it a very popular and sort after synth. The real time control also make it an excellent machine to use live."

Polar Orbit - A Live Synth Jam (Blofeld, reface CP, Specular Tempus)

Lanthan O'Ide

"Dunno what style this is. It's not really Berlin School, it's clearly not Ambient...
Let's just call it "Indie Electronica", that can't be wrong, right? ^^'
Anyways, I had heaps of fun jamming, hope you'll like enjoy listening too. ;)
For those playing along at home:The key is G major / E minor, the tempo is around 110 BPM. But I'm using the Blofeld's internal clock, and I'm not sure how steady that is.
A view behind the scenes:

So... As some of you may have already heard, I've been busy tinkering again.
But instead of doing something with Arduinos as usual, this time I thought "how hard can coding VSTs be, anyways?".
So I've made my very first VST plugin! I call it the "Arclight".
Nothing too fancy, all it does is take an input note and expand it into a chord.

And that's what you can see in the video: I'm playing my root notes on the QY100, which sends them to my laptop, where they are expanded into chords. Those are passed on to the Blofeld, which does two things:
a) It puts them into its arpeggiator
b) It filters out the lowest note, and uses it for the bass.

The rest is just my normal setup:
Both the Blofeld and the reface CP's audio get passed through the Specular Tempus, and are recorded by my laptop.
More info on the Arclight:

Metaphorically speaking, it illuminates the space around your solo. So that's where the name comes from.

The Arclight creates full voicings for pads and atmos from a single root note. So you can play pads with just one finger, and have a hand free for soloing! Or sequence chords with a simple monophonic sequencer! ...or do something entirely different and feed the output to an arpeggiator. ;-)

If you like, you can try it out for yourself.
I've put it into the download section of my website, the link to that is among the others.
Well then, let's close off the video description with some links:
Here you can stream & download my music!

As alway, thank you for listening!
