Sequential Prophet 6 "PolyVision" sound set by Synthient Sound [patch play through 0-49]

Synthient Sound

"The apocalypse of sound will be September 1st...we've foreseen it.

It has been foretold that the Prophet 6 needs no introduction, and so it has come to pass. But a prophet’s true value is in their message; is your synthesizer rambling on a soap box, or is it predicting the sonic promised land of tomorrow from the darkness of today?

Synthient’s PolyVision sound set for the legendary Prophet 6 takes the message of the Prophets of old and envisions a future where technicians become artists. Its 100 included presets are meant for touching, tasting and embracing, not just hearing. Mix, modify, twist and contort these tones until they are haptically, deliciously, and existentially you… then channel your polyphonic spree into a message for all humankind.

A Prophet 6 without a prophet is, after all, merely a blank scroll seeking a hopeful message; PolyVision will be the inspiration for your revelation… and the instigator of your sonic journey.

We predict it.

Matrix Dude synth: first contact


"My first contact with Matrix Dude, a new synth app from Digituria. I really like this app. It's kind of Minimoog-ish but with a lot more possibilities for modulation. Easy to use, sounds good, it's even bright and colorful!

A few notes though. One is that this is more or less an alpha version, still very much in development. As such, things will definitely be changing in the app. Many for the better I'm sure but things in this video may also be changed or eliminated. So be sure to remember the early-in-development status of the app when I'm adjusting the fine tuning of the oscillators a number of times, for example. I've spoken with the developers and they know about this and are definitely working on the tuning algorithms. I'm also told the look and feel of the app may be changing substantially so followup videos may look quite different.

All that being said, I had a lot of fun patching up sounds in Matrix Dude. Was quick and easy, and it sounds darn good. Looking forward to future updates to the app.

Lastly, I was going to make a quick one-minute tune as the outro music but ultimately decided the bass sound didn't really mesh with the arpeggio sound as it had a bit too much in the high frequencies. Next version I'm thinking I'll greatly lower the envelope 2 amount so you don't get as much of a burst of high frequency energy at the start of each note. It's fine with just the arpeggios there at the end but I was definitely planning something a bit more musical as a short demo of what you could do. Same with the lead sound, might soften the attack of the envelope just a bit to make it a bit less percussive at the beginning of a note.

Chimera Synthesis BC16

via this auction

"The Chimera BC16 is a complete patchable analog monophonic synthesizer with a VCO, LFO, envelope generator with noise and ring modulation in a circular small sized plastic case.
BC16 is a boutique synth and it is quite rare those days. You can hear this synth on records by Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode.

Comes with rechargeable batteries, charger and a bunch of mini banana, banana, audio and midi cables."

AVP Synth Ritmobox demo

AVP Synth

"MIX OUT direct recording of Ritmobox - compact, analog drum synthesizer/machine inspired by the drum machines/synthesizers of the 70s-80s.

It has x5 individual sound channels: CH, OH, 3 separate Generators (G1, G2, G3) with noise generators and LFO pitch modulations plus a built-in 8-step sequencer and MIDI IN/OUT."

Super relaxed Motor Synth jam

Floyd Steinberg

"Seriously, I didn't expect this synth to sound this good. :) Bass, pad, lead and that arpeggiated thing is from the Motor Synth, electric piano is from the EX5 and drums are from the Blackbox. Digitone is sequencing only."

Joranalogue Introduces Two New Eurorack Modules: Morph 4 and Fold 6

via Joranalogue

Straight from the Dutch Modular Fest Stream Day 2020: presenting not one, but two new additions to the Joranalogue Eurorack module series!

Both modules will enter production soon, with worldwide releases planned within the next few months. Read on below to learn all about them!

Designed as a fully-featured modulation hub for Eurorack synthesisers, Morph 4 takes the basic concept of the multi-VCA module to the next level.

Four linear amplitude modulators are controlled by a master ‘morph’ parameter. The response of each modulator to this parameter is completely variable, both manually and under voltage control, and can be overridden if desired. Each response is triangular, with the ‘position’ parameter setting the maximum point along the morph axis, while ‘span’ determines the width of the triangle’s base.

The combination of master control, fully flexible modulators and multiple combined outputs creates a module truly embodying the spirit of ‘patch programmable’ modular synthesis. Use Morph 4 as a voltage controlled mixer, dual crossfader, dual panner, interpolating scanner, interpolating distributor, quad VCA, quadraphonic controller, slope modifier, rectifier, complex waveshaper or something in between any of those—the choice is yours.

For the first time, Fold 6 puts forward a 6-stage hybrid series/parallel topology, yielding a greater sonic palette than ever in just 4 HP. Having both main (series) and alternate (parallel) outputs means a single module now gives access to just about all wavefolding tones imaginable.

To take things even further, an integrated symmetrical soft clipper limits the output signals to approximately 10 Vpp, keeping the amplitude within typical Eurorack levels and making it easier to create overdriven sounds at high fold ratios. This clipping stage can be driven continuously using the shape parameter, smoothly transforming the folded waveforms into pulse waves for even more harmonic content.

Moving beyond simple signal processing, Fold 6 also lends itself perfectly for feedback patching, CV folding or frequency multiplication; its modest size belies the sonic capabilities within.

KORG TRITON Hardware vs Software SHOOTOUT

Woody Piano Shack

"Let's compare the sound of the newly released KORG TRITON VST plugin from KORG COLLECTION 2 with an original hardware KORG TRITON CLASSIC synthesizer sampler workstation from 1999.
We'll play the same preset program and combi patches back to back on both instruments, comparing the sound of the drums, bass, pads, pianos and more.
Can you hear the difference?"
