Soma Labs Lyra 8 #4 improv | dark electronic ambient industrial soundscape | a short film nightmare

video upload by Nate Connelly

"Soma Laboratories Lyra 8 analogue synthesizer drone machine.

I created this soundscape and short film for Halloween 2021. A friend and I went for a walk around beacon fell to do some filming and sound recording a few weeks ago, but the weather was far too wet and windy to do either!

However, I managed to get a few shots of the spectacular foggy atmospheres on my Osmo action, and thought they would pair well with the otherworldy sounds of the Lyra 8... so here we are.

The samples are from some radio show about haunted woodlands I recorded late on night on my field recorder.

I hope you enjoy. Please like & subscribe for more videos.

Renaissance Music on Synthesizer

"This is old stuff I did back in 2004. All sounds synthesized and performed on the Synthesis Technology modular synthesizer. They are various short pieces from a book of German keyboard music, if I remember correctly. I'll be in the process of making Youtube videos of my older synth work over the next several months so that more people can hear them."

Upgrading the DFAM

video upload by PanicGirlVids

"In this video I'll show you how I "upgraded" my DFAM from Moog with bigger knobs. Whenever I tuned the single steps on the DFAM it took me quite a while to get it right, so I decided to give the DFAM knob set from Thonk a try. You'll need a bit of patience to install them all properly, but it's doable in about 5-10 minutes all in all. And it does look pretty nice in the end, don't you think?

Dubreq Pianomate SN 421

via this auction

You can find a demo of one here.

"This is a Dubreq Pianomate analog synthesizer piano enhancer. Dubreq's Pianomate is a crazy box of tricks, designed to capture the tone of a piano creating an electronic & acoustic sound together like a hybrid synth. Two bars with sensors rest on the keyboard wired into the amp/speaker built into the Pianomate. The bars, treble/bass respond to piano playing, when the key is pressed the tonebar key drops down, creating the note. This results in a synth sound, that's warm but polyphonic. A 3-way rocker switch controls 'Balance' (bass, both, treble), another 3-way rocker selects 'Voice' (french accordion, organ, flute, jazz buzz). There are two volume knobs Pianomate & Mic. Another 3-way switch control vibrato. Between the two volume knobs is access to a small trim pot that allows fine tuning of vibrato speed. This Pianomate is in great condition."

Korg Minilogue XD // It can sound EXPENSIVE! [no external FX]

video upload by Dexba

"First of all: welcome to another video, I want to thank you for stopping by my channel, and also taking your time to read this. I really appreciate that. 💝

Let's get to this video, and the Korg Minilogue, most importantly the XD version.
I've always told myself I would never buy one, but if I had a chance to try it I wouldn't refuse. So here we are, I was selling other stuff and one came up for trade, so I took the chance.
- Build quality is good, as it was with the older Minilogue (which I owned, I think most of us used to), and it's finally nice to have a compact, quite light, polysynth on my desk.
- The analog part is good, similar to the one on the previous model or even the Monologue, an instrument I dig a lot.
- The digital part is okay-ish, here I will be using the Sine part since the emulation of saws, squares, and so on are AWFUL, and I can't stress this enough: even the quickest comparison with ITS OWN analog part will result in a complete debacle for the digital part.
- The FX are okay-ish too, most of the reverbs sound almost the same, with various degrees of pitch-shifting (ranging from annoying to unusable to okay if you turn it almost down), the delays would be cool if they had any chance to be modulated, or if all didn't sound super lo-fi, rendering useless the preset Tape. Cool the Mod part, because using Ensemble or Chorus will give that expensive feeling to the sound

It is a strange synth because it can be very useful for a wide range of situations, but at the same time, it is very clear what it wants you to do with its engines (and this patch made from scratch is a good example since I later found out it resembles very closely the very first patch you get turning on the instrument; from patch 2 you're getting downhill).
It's the perfect case of "The sum is greater than the parts", but I am not sure that's the right approach for me.
Enjoy! ✨"

Stereoping MidiTools

video upload by Three CCTranslators automating Microwave, Matrix and TX81Z from DAW Stereoping

"Technical productdemo for the #CCTranslator which converts common Midi Control Change (aka 'CC') data into highly specialized #SysEx parameter change commands. This allows to remote or automate vintage Synthesizers like e.g. the #Waldorf #Microwave, #Matrix1000, #TX-81Z in your DAW. In the video these three Synths are automated - each with 4 parameters - from a dashboard in FL Studio. The Matrix1000 is running the tauntek firmware which reflects parameter changes on the LED display. Some little timing issues but mostly it works quite well. Most of the automation data was optimized by drawing steps and preventing redundant data. Depending on your DAW, automation curves can produce a LOT of data which might result in timing problems or missed events."

via stereoping

"The MIDI TOOLS are tiny, cute boxes manipulating Midi Data. They will be plugged in between the sender (MIDI OUT of DAW or Keyboard) and the receiver (MIDI IN of Synthesizer) and will be supplied with power from the connected Midi cable – there is no power supply jack. This is quite practical and works with the vast majority of equipment.

The Midi Tools are coming in 3 flavours:

The PolyChainer will be plugged in between the Synth Programmer and allows playing two Matrix 1000/6/6R (or other Synths) with 12 note polyphony

The CCTranslator translates ordinary Control Change (“CC”) messages into the complex SysEx commands to control and remote your vintage Synthesizer

The ChordTransposeFilter offers 4 features at the same time: Chord Memory, transposition of incoming midi notes, filtering of undesired Midi data and a simple MIDI Thru

The MidiTools are housed in a beautiful stainless steel case, the upper half painted in transparent strawberry red, yum. Like all Stereoping products their firmware can easly be updated over Midi. Please click the tabs for more info about the little helpers."

Model Cycles 24 FM Voices Space Drone

video upload by Perplex On

"By setting up each of the 6 tracks with a 4 voice chord machine with carefully altered sonic parameters and LFO modulations, when played at the same time, it’s basically possible to get 24 FM voices. Via a connected iPad loaded with AUM and the free MidiTools auv3, AUM‘s keyboard is configured to send on all 6 midi channels simultaneously, so each single key press triggers all six tracks. To smoothen the envelopes a bit, a pinch of additional fx is added with #velvetmachine reverb on the ipad."

The Theremini is a re-imagination of one of the oldest electronic musical instrument in history and Bob Moog's first love - the Theremin. Its design fuses the experience of performing with an instrument you don't actually touch, with a powerful sound engine derived from Moog's award-winning synthesizer, Animoog. The Theremini guarantees immediate success to any player at any skill level, while providing new ways to experiment with music, education, and gestural control.

Matrix-6G VST3: Free, Open-Source Editor/Librarian Plugin for the Oberheim Matrix-6R

video upload by Mister 1-2-3-4 Programming

Putting Matrix 6G to Work: A Cover of "Vitamin C" by Edgar Froese

You might recall the Matrix-6G Plug-In Editor for Reaper back in 2015. It's now available as a VST3.

via Mister 1-2-3-4 Programming

"Matrix-6G VST3 is now available! It’s an editor and librarian plugin designed to work with Oberheim’s Matrix-6R rack-mount synth module from the mid-1980s.

The highlights:

Edit patches, matrix mod settings, splits, and master settings on the hardware from within your DAW.
Patch parameters are exposed to the plugin host and can be automated and/or controlled via external devices.
Several hundred patch presets are included, plus there are two storage banks where custom patches can be saved.
Helpful tooltip windows appear when you hover the mouse over parameter controls for a few moments. You can change the amount of time before the tips appear or turn them off entirely.
Compatibility: Reaper (version 6 and up) and Cubase (version 10 and up). Windows only. The plugin may work to some extent with the Matrix-1000 module or the Matrix-6 keyboard model, but I have no way to test this. The plugin is most likely not compatible with any third-party modification of the Matrix-6R’s firmware.

Matrix-6G VST3 version 1.0.0 is now available for free download.

It is also completely open-source, and there’s information about getting the source code on my website as well.

I’ve put up a video demonstrating how to set up tracks for using Matrix-6G in Reaper and Cubase: [1st video above]

As a use-test of the plugin, I did a cover of “Vitamin C” by Edgar Froese using only sounds from the Matrix-6R treated with assorted effects boxes and plugins. Here’s a video that goes through the tracks in the Reaper project for the song and displays the Matrix-6G settings for each of the voices used: [2nd video above]"

"This is a limited edition black version of the classic Colossus synthesizer!

We have chosen some of our favourite circuits from our own large back catalogue synths such as Polymath, Telemark and Vostok.

Colossus is not a Synthi 100 clone - all circuits are non-EMS, Analogue Solutions’ design.

The original Synthi was so large it wouldn’t fit through a standard doorway. We didn’t make that mistake but don’t underestimate its size. It will be prominent in your studio, or art gallery!

It is sized at 1585mm wide, 700mm deep and 655mm high and weighing in too big to fit on the scales. It’s not entirely practical, but to be impressive physically and in sound. It will be an awesome centrepiece for your studio.

Ensoniq Halo keyboard demo #shorts

video upload by O.Z. Hall

"The Ensoniq Halo keyboard was introduced in 2002. It was basically an E-mu product (a sister to the the E-mu PK-6 keyboard). This demo shows a custom sequence (pattern/arppegio) played with a special technique in which the right hand is played sparsely and sometimes with polyrhythms to create a melody line. The Halo was the last product released by Ensoniq. It used the same samples that were in the ZR-76 in a "less industrial" package, at a much lower price point."

"The teisco s-100p is a monophonic synthesizer not unlike the Roland sh1000 and the Yamaha sy-1. Although you have a little bit less control over the sound than with its competitors the s-100p makes up for it with its unique flanger and built-in spring reverb. Its a blast to play with and has a ton of character. It has 32 presets, a brilliance fader (lowpass), pitchbend, portamento/glissando, modspeed and Arps famous aftertouch sensors. With the aftertouch you can control a variety of effects such as, growl, vibrato, pitchbend and the brilliance."

Aeolian harmonic patch in stereo, with wavefolding and TZFM // Instruōctional Patching

video upload by Instruō

"Core Techniques:
• Harmonic chord progression using Harmonàig
• Audio rate XOR voice combination
• Rhythmic modulation
• Wavefolding
• Through-zero frequency modulation

I explore quite a few techniques in this patch. The foundation is a minor chord progression built around a diad patched in stereo (root left and 3rd right).
I wanted to use similar timbres for the voices producing root and 3rd. The root comes from the wavefolder output of a Neóni which is modulated by a rhythmic LFO.
The 3rd is a TZFM pair pitched from the Tš-L modulating a second Neóni. The index ratio is modulated by a second rhythmic LFO.

Self patching an øchd produces the rhythmic LFO signals that become the natual tempo and feel of the patch. I play the progression manually from the Harmonàig as the rhythms are not rigidly locked.

The 5th output of the Harmonàig controls a Tòna from which the square wave output is combined with the root Neóni's squarewave via the XOR comparator on the eãs.
XOR processing of square waves is mathematically the same as ring-modulation/4-quadrant multiplication of the two square wave signals.
Sidebands are produced resulting in a richer more complex tone. As the chord voicings mostly form a perfect 5th interval between root and 5th, the resulting signal remains tonally stable. Slight detuning of the 5th allowing for beating to broaden the timbre.

I low-pass filter this new voice and share it equally between left and right to form a common mono signal for the patch.

The gate from the Harmonàig triggers an ADSR from the Cèis. TRIG mode is engaged to force completion of the attack phase.
This envelope modulates two aspects of the same signal.
The top voice of a Cš-L acts as an LFO. This LFO frequency is controlled by the envelope while the signal's depth is simultaniously controlled by the same envelope.
The processed LFO controls the cutoff frequency of the I-ō47 which is low-pass filtering the XOR signal.
When a note is played on the Harmonàig the filter cutoff will "wobble" with a dynamic rate and depth."

"We often get asked 'What is Noisebug?' and 'What do you guys do here?' Or 'What is this place?' So we’ve finally attempted to answer these questions in our new 30-second TV Spot.

When making it, we drew much inspiration from the trailer for the 1973 film SOYLENT GREEN, which happens to take place in NYC 2022.

Since it will only be airing on TV local to the LA area, we want to share it with our global audience, as well."

Additional Switched On Listings

"The Sigma is an interesting bi-timbric synthesizer consisting of two sections: a genuine analog 'Synthe' and a Preset 'Instrument' section. All together, there are 19 presets on it that give a variety of sounds. There are 11 presets for the 'Instrument' section which include fuzz guitar, electric bass, clavi, string, flute, double reed, trumpet, hammered percussion, etc. And there are 8 presets for the "Synthe" section that give variable waveforms (square, pulse, sawtooth) in different pitch ranges (from 32' to 4'). Each preset has its own rotary control to vary its sounds. The Sigma is also unique for its ability to combine the synth and instrument sections for a nicer, layered synth sound or effect."

Hydrasynth Deluxe single patch “Released RA” with “Liquid Stack” sample

video upload by the sun god RA

"This is Hydrasynth Deluxe single preset D021 “Released RA”. It’s modified to use Mod 1 input as an external audio input, fed by my Waldorf Blofeld with the “Liquid Stack” classic Emulator sample, bringing the sample into the Hydra signal chain as a paraphonic fourth “oscillator”. I also change the Hydra oscillator waveforms from Saw to TriSaw as I mix in Mod 1 input."

Hydrasynth Deluxe single patch “Entropium RA” + “Loon Garden” sample

"Here is an attempt to feed samples into the signal chain of the Hydrasynth. The sample is an old Emulator II classic, 'Loon Garden', residing in my Waldorf Blofeld with License SL. The output of the Blofeld is fed into Mod 1 input on the Hydrasynth, which is selected as source in the Ring-Noise menu. RM depth 0, Ring Vol 128. Hydrasynth midi out to Blofeld midi in. The multi sample on the Blo is now acting as a fourth, paraphonic 'oscillator' on the Hydra.

The mod inputs are obviously not meant for this use, the volume of the audio is quite weak compared to the oscillators, so I had to turn up AmpLevel and lower the oscillator levels."

Live Patch: Buchla 208c Easel Command live west coast avant-garde synthesizer electronic music

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"I am using the Buchla 208c music Easel Command along with the Make Noise 0-ctrl as a stand in for the 218 touch controller and wanted to make something more out there and noisy musically. I didn't rehearse this beforehand and was just following the sound. I am using a looper pedal to create many layers of the soundscape, eventually working towards creating an Easel roulette with the envelope assigned to the tempo. I am using the west coast technique of starting with something and spinning it out like a centrifuge. I'm processing the sound through a few eurorack modules that I will detail below. Hopefully this camera angle also helps you learn something!"

"OH MY GAWD! I love this little device -- I'm really gelling with it so far!

A *huge* folder of my samples is included in the factory library.
I am so honored to have my sounds in this amazing hand-held music maker!!

This is the second "full track" I've written with it.

The M8 really excels at chopping up a sample into equal sized chops and then remixing those chops to make new patterns."

Egyptian Lover on “Egypt, Egypt”

video upload by dublab

"For this debut episode of Red Bull Music Academy’s new Key Tracks series the dublab film team connected with West electro legend Egyptian Lover. We visited the 808 controlling wizard at Rusk Sound Studios, where he recorded his 1984 album On the Nile which included the classic 'Egypt, Egypt.' Egyptian Lover sketches out the inspiration behind the recording of this monumental jam and even graces us with a grand piano performance before a mind blowing recreation of the tune on his OG Roland TR-808. We were thrilled to once again collaborate with our buddies in forward thinking sound at RBMA. Keep your eyes and ears open for more installments of their Key Tracks series, as they continue to share personal sonic insights from musical legends.
