Osmose sound design work in progress #4

Expressive E

"This video is giving a sneak peek at the current state of 7 sounds that our in-house sound designers are programming using the EaganMatrix by Haken Audio, Osmose's internal synth engine.

These sounds range from different categories such as subtractive synth sounds, FM keys, physical modeling pluck and pads, all taking advantage of the new keybed interactions offered by Expressive E's AKA (Augmented Keyboard Action©)."

You can find additional videos in the series here.

Aquifex - Modular and OP-Z jam 11-23-20


"Quick experiment with a tempo locked rhythm and a wild snare and off tempo arp. As the beat comes around they sync up, get a little wild, and sync up again. Fun to try but YMMV. :-)

Used some new modules including a Plaits clone, Gyrinx VCF (Synton Syrinx filter bank), Grids, and some classics like Morphagene and Clouds with various modulation bits. That WMD Geiger Counter is a noisy bugger, but fun."

Note that is a custom MATRIXSYNTH hat by SynthAddict. It looks good! :)

Moog The Source Vintage Analog Monophonic Synthesizer SN 2043

via this auction

"Incredible bass and leads reminiscent of the Model D, but more polished and precise. Condition is used, notice the light marks on the body, end cheeks, and slight lift of the membrane material under the data wheel. I recently had its tuning recalibrated. Membrane, data wheel, and all functions work perfectly. Power cord included."

Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 SN 000341

via this auction

"The Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 was released in 1983 when analog synthesizers were largely outnumbered by digital FM machines. The T8 is a monstrous sounding 8 Voice polyphonic synth with analog circuity under digital control allowing the user patch storage and a 670 note on board sequencer. The T8 also featured 76 weighted keys with velocity and aftertouch that could be routed to various destinations which was very uncommon at this time. This synth is very similar to its predecessor the legendary Prophet 5 in its sound and is often thought of as Sequential Circuits' pinnacle synthesizer.

Prophet T8 is an 8-voice analog synthesizer with digital microprocessor control. This model hasn’t lost its relevance even now, as it has all the necessary features:

Full MIDI support
Dynamic keyboard with aftertouch
The ability of keyboard split and layer
Sequencer for 670 notes
128 patches to save settings"

NEXT! Spacebass 3.3 TB-303 Based Rackmount Synth

via this auction

"This is a rack mount TB-303 clone made by NEXT! In the 90’s. The Spacebass 3.3 has a 100% analog engine and signal path. The only thing digital is the MIDI interface. I tried loads of 303 clones and found that this one sonically sounded the most like an original. Run it through an MXR Distortion+ and you can’t tell the difference. Instant acid house. No sequencer on this guy but depending on how you play it via midi you can create cool glides like using the original’s sequencer. It also has a CV input on the back to control the VCF cutoff. Cool for integrating with you other modular gear."

Made under license by MAM.

4 Jams ft. the 4ms Spherical Wavetable Navigator into the Hologram Microcosm

Red Means Recording

Fun to watch the Noodlebox Serendipity Sequencer by Sixty Four Pixesl on the bottom left. Check out Red Means Recording's intro video for it here.

"It had been a while since I messed with the medium rack, and I was itching to push the 4ms Spherical Wavetable Navigator into some uncharted territory. I recorded a bunch of custom wavetables into it from Plaits and the TS-L and then set up the Noodlebox to bridge the clock gap between the rack and the Microcosm. Here are 4 jams showing off some different facets of this setup.

00:00 - Jam 1 (breakbeat)
10:18 - Jam 2 (chemical beats)
18:28 - Jam 3 (tech-house)
28:28 - Jam 4 (spooky downtempo)"

Ambient iPad Jam Feat. Roli Lightpad Block + Bouncing Ball

Perplex On

"I was totally unaware of custom scripts for the Roli Lightpad Block, which can actually transform it to a standalone hardware sequencer. I was so inspired by this that i got myself a used one to try some of them. Great fun! Here the Lightpad is loaded with a script by @Guy Dupont which allows for drawing rectangles on its surface and a simulated bouncing ball triggers a note on every collision. Midi can be transmitted via USB midi or bluetooth. I've routed the midi output to a Mozaic patch which randomly distributes these midi events to 3 instances of Aparillo synth with a bunch of fx like K7D delay, Blackhole Reverb, Bleass Compressor, Velvet Machine, Eventide QVox and FAC Bandit. Enjoy!"
