ARP Omni & Omni 2 MIDI Installation - Synthchaser #133


Synth Chaser

"In this video I show you how to install the Synthchaser MIDI Adapter for the ARP Omni in an Omni 2. The process for an Omni 1 is very similar. This is a user-installable upgrade that requires no soldering or modifications to your synthesizer (other than perhaps a hole to mount the MIDI jack/jacks).

The MIDI adapter is available on my website."

JoMox XBASE 888 Analog Digital Drum Machine SN 0052


via this auction

"Jomox Xbase 888 drum machine, in great condition and updated to OS 113. Comes with Jomox power supply.

9 Instruments
Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Lo Tom, Hi Tom, Hi Hat, Clap, Rim, Crash and Ride. All instruments are polyphonically playable and have individual outs. The bass drum, snare drum, lo tom and high tom are true analog circuits, and for the remainder of the sounds, the XBASE 888 uses short 8-bit samples, each routed through an analog envelope. The sample flash ROM contains 31 samples per instrument, so there's a total of 186 samples (The Hi Hat section contains 2 separate samples for Closed and Open HH).


· Real analog sound production
The BD, SD, LT and HT use true analog circuits with full digital control, which allows the storage of presets and full midi control of all parameters. To keep the analog circuitry as pristine as possible, all D/A converters are specially designed for and integrated into the circuits with proven XBASE/AirBase technology.

· 16 knobs
Sound editing is made by continuous rotary encoders for every analog parameter, allowing you to edit the sounds without jumps or awkward turning situations. Close to each knob there is a 3-color LED indicating which parameters are editable for the selected instrument.

"Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the second layer of oscillators found on the Arturia PolyBrute.

The theme for this demonstration was recorded by multitracking the Arturia PolyBrute in order to provide the various parts necessary. The drums were assembled out of loops from Apple’s GarageBand."

"I'm working on a new project which is techno based (and probably won't be released under the "junklight" moniker either) but it's been a while since my (possibly misspent) techno soaked 20's so finding a groove again.

The ending leaves a bit to be desired"

Here are some patch notes:
--------------------------
- I have the Vraids firmware loaded on Freak from Vult, which means that I have 2 Braids in it basically. I have both channels set to the HARM mode, and a bit detuned from one another. This is going to the Mimeophon.
- I'm sequencing the Basimilus with the Keystep Pro, sending it through the Desmodus Versio for some nice reverb.

TINRS Fenix IV - Gnarly Beat with patch breakdown


Making Sound Machines

"A gnarly bass and an uptempo breakbeat on the TiNRS Fenix - while our friends Stijn, Priscilla and Lauri at This is Not Rocket Science are polishing the firmware and adding small tweaks to the Fenix' PCBs, we keep patching all possible (and impossible) patches on this awesome, full-fledged Eurorack compatible system-in-a-box hardware modular synth! All sounds coming straight from this machine.

The bass line in this patch is a sawtooth from the analog chord oscillator patched into the Fenix' logic switch, with a DC offset from the CV mixer going into one of its inputs, resulting in a dirty square waveform. This is shaped with the wobbler complex LFO going to the cutoff of the spectacular digital stereo filter (loving it ❤️ !) and the AHDSR/D envelope controlling a VCA. There's a little bit of the wavemultiplier added in parallel for added grit.

The beat is showing off the lovely analog noise coming in pink, brown, blue and purple color. Kick and toms are made using the digital oscillator in wavetable mode, with a bank of drum samples loaded. We're super happy to be part of this beta test, and are having tons of fun making music with this instrument! Full patch breakdown soon on our YouTube channel.

ARP 2600 clock with divider


O.Z. Hall

"This video demonstrates a technique for using the internal sample and hold clock on the ARP 2600 as a gate. In addition, you can use the electronic switch as a divider, to get a clock at 1/2 the rate of the internal clock.

That technique plus the duophonic keyboard creates a very playable voicing that simulates a 3 voice chord."
