Introducing the Bluebox Digital Mixer by 1010music

"Bluebox is the portable digital audio mixer that integrates your electronic music gear. Connect your eurorack, sampler, drum machine and synthesizer outputs to 6 stereo, 3.5 mm TRS inputs and map them to 12 mono tracks or 6 stereo tracks – all with independent control for recording and playback. It’s that keyboard mixer with live performance features that you always hoped someone would make.

Available December 2020!"

via 1010music

Connect the output of your electronic music gear to bluebox, and then route each track independently to the three outputs and effects sends. Each track offers control of volume, gain, 4 band parametric EQ, pan, mute and solo functions. Apply high-quality global reverb and delay effects along with 4 band EQ per track to add new depth to your sound with total control to quickly tweak incoming audio or track playback as needed.

Real hardware 'polyvox' vs software 'polyvoks'. Let's try to compare sounds

Rain (Rob Scallon) // An arrangement for 0-Coast, Repro-5, and baritone violin

Stefano Mattia

"I heard this beautiful song for guitar by Rob Scallon and I and decided to make my own version of it using my 0-Coast. I added a baritone violin from the Moonglades library by Spitfire because, well, it sounds so mellow and mature, and I think it's a good match for the raspy character of the 0-Coast.

Repro-5 takes care of the big bass patch, while the long shimmering reverb tail at the end is made with my Specular Tempus: I recorded a second, 100% wet pass of the 0-Coast part, and blended it with the original, unprocessed recording, to which, by the way, I applied a generous dose of Valhalla delay.

Hope you like it!"

Trigger Happy with the Roland TR-06

Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video resident expert and co-owner of Patchwerks Tom Butcher takes us through various real world setups with the new Roland TR-06. The tour includes a comparison with the original Roland 606, using the TR-06 with another synthesizer, syncing with other drum machines, and using the TR-06 with modular.

The TR-06 is a detailed replica of the classic Roland TR-606—with some major modern upgrades. Our new Roland Boutique version has the distinctive tone and iconic look of the original, with more sound-shaping options, innovative sequencing capabilities, and an array of triggers for driving modular gear.

Sensel Morph and MOK Waverazor (via Expert Sleepers FH-2)

CatSynth TV

"The MOK Waverazor exposes a large array of CV points to control its wave-slicing oscillators. This provides an opportunity to connect a Sensel Morph with Buchla Thunder overlay for expressive timbral control. We experiment with this setup, using an Expert Sleepers FH-2 and FHX-8CV to connect them, along with our Arturia MiniBrute 2 for keyboard and amplitude envelope.

If you have not already seen our detailed MOK Waverazor demo and tutorial, please check that out [posted here].

Destination Omega written by Jacqueline Caruso and Augustus Green


You never know where you will end up
Just as quickly a blue sky can turn to grey
Just as quickly a smile can go the other way

You never know where you will end up
You never know where you will end up

Or when...

Curious and curiouser

Strange as it may seem
You're just the only one
The rest of us can see

You're the only one
The rest of us can see...

Only time will tell
Only time will tell

E-MU EMULATOR II Sampling Synthesizer (1984) Back in 1984 - Retro SynthWave


(c)2007-20 by RetroSound
supported by UVI:

"Back in 1984" show the spirit of the mid 80s. The music that influenced me the most. I heard the music of Human League, Depeche Mode, Ultravox, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and others from the forbidden westgerman radio stations. I dreamed naive dreams as a child who lived behind the iron curtain. All these beautiful machines. Out of reach for me.
But sometimes everything comes at the right time.

all synthesizer sounds and drums: E-MU EMULATOR II Sampling Synthesizer from the year 1984
I used the internal sequencer for track sequencing
recording: multi-track played by hand
fx: reverb and delay

Akai MPK mini, Korg NTS-1, Pular-23 - Friday Fun Synth Jam


Another in our occasional series where we take a random collection of instruments and other elements and create a musical sketch. In this episode, we are using the Akai MPK Mini MK3 - which is the latest MIDI controller in the MPK mini series, this is connected to the korg NTS-1 mini digital synth and the Soma Pulsar-23 drum machine.

To connect it all together, we use the Retrokits RK006 - which can be a stand alone MIDI hub and host. We're using the keys of the MPK to play the NTS-1 via the USB connections, then the pads to play the Pulsar-23 over a MIDI connection.
We programmed the controllers to match several NTS-1 parameters and set the Pulsar-23 to learn the trigger notes and a couple of additional controlling parameters.
