Z506 Swiss Daisy DSP - looping AD demo

O.Z. Hall

"One of the modes of the Z506 Swiss Daisy DSP is 'oscillator' mode. The oscillator section (left half) can be used as a 'filterless' voice when combined with the ADSR and VCA (right half). Once of the waveforms is 'Noise'. In VCO mode with the Noise waveform, the bottom left knob is a 6DB per octave lowpass filter (tone control). The noise spectrum can be varied from white noise to pink noise to a little darker than pink noise (but not random), since the audio output is AC coupled.

There is a looping behavior in the ADSR when the sustain is below about the 8:30 knob position. This video explores/exploits that behavior."

Colossus Patch & Sequence Played Live with Touch Keyboard

Analogue Solutions

"Here's a little all-Colossus patch played live via one of the two built-in touch keyboards. It's not a high-quality recording, but it's enough to appreciate the cool factor of this patch and sequence."

Merlin (Moog Modular and MFB-501) by Benge

zack dagoba

"Moog Modular and MFB (standing for Manfred Fricke Berlin) 501B drum machine playing together. The Moog is using a Dotcom S&H to produce the sequence of notes (with an up-saw LFO plus clock). The reverb is the original Moog 905 spring"

Unsettled music for unsettled times: modular (Cursus Iteritas), Piano & delay


"small steps as I return to action after a fallow period.

Vaguely thinking about the rhythmic patches Zoviet France started live sets with around the turn of the century. Lots of related modulation from ochd & wogglebug on the Cursus Iteritas. Additional voice from the trusty DPO.

Piano is going through Valhalla Delay which I'm controlling a couple of parameters on."

HAMMOND ORGAN DRAWBAR Tutorial and Must-Know Settings

Woody Piano Shack

"Tutorial explaining how the mysterious drawbars work on the HAMMOND ORGAN B3 and many other models, keyboards and clonewheels like the Nord Electro, C2D, Hammond SK and organs from Viscount and Crumar.

I'll then share some of the most common drawbar settings and registrations that all keyboard players need to know, Jimmy Smith, Full Drawbars, Gospel and more.

We'll use the YAMAHA YC61 and GG AUDIO BLUE3 VST software organ for this demo." MORE WOODY PIANO SHACK

18- The Arturia PolyBrute- Morph Control


"Here is a demonstration of the functionality of the deeper control functions associated with the "morph" function 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."

Oberheim Four Voice FVS 1 w\ Hans Zimmer Autograph SN 0085

via this auction

"Ultra rare vintage polyphonic analog synthesizer signed by the maestro himself, Hans Zimmer!

Serial Number 0085.

Polyphony: 4 voices Oscillators: 8 VCO's (2 per voice) with sawtooth or variable-pulse waveforms LFO: LFO with triangle wave only Filter: Low, band, high, notch filter w/ resonance VCA: 2 ADR envelopes Keyboard: 49 keys Control: CV / Gate Date Produced: 1975-1979

Four dual-oscillator SEM modules are the heart of this legendary instrument originally built in 1976. Create huge bass, leads and pads dripping in unique character. All keys, voices, oscillators, and filters work and sound amazing. There is some minor cosmetic damage on the case exterior. This unit has the Polyphonic Synthesizer Programmer, which was an early attempt at saving and recalling programs. From what I understand, even with the Programmer, you still have to manually dial in your patch, and it's certainly not required to play and create incredible sounds on this synth. It appears to have been serviced by the previous owner. Tuning tracking holds steady, occasionally requires a minor tweak. Pots sounds clean, very little if any scratchiness."

4MS Pedals BEND MATRIX vintage programmable sequencer for analog / digital synth


via this auction

"4MS Pedals BEND MATRIX vintage programmable sequencer for analog / digital synthesizers
It's an amazing sequencer, notes can be played thru lighted pushbuttons with a lot of complex combinations, between arpeggios, pendulum sequences, random etc etc...
It seems to be a 4MS prototype or early version with many banana and jacks CV Controls, not tested from me because I haven't here the right equipments and not enought experience for test all them, only tried with MIDI driving a Yamaha TX-802 expander.
There are four potentiometers for notes amounts, it can be used also with the builts in 4x Opto photocells ....that is a cool feature.
For manual check here"

#Jamuary2021 | Day 03 | Rene Quantizer

Cinematic Laboratory

"Did you know you can use the MakeNoise Rene MK2 as a CV quantizer without running the sequencer? This is great fun when feeding it something slow like an LFO or random woggle. It's a simple patch, but with very cool results, especially when you're enjoying a lazy sunday. When Jamuary 2021 is over, I'll repack this video as a Shared System Tutorial and add it to the series."

"Un breve test, utilizzando il LIRA, un intrument realizzato nei vari formati AU, VST.
il link per scaricarlo, costo 5 dollari.
Non so se funziona su tutti i sistemi operativi.
Io lo sto testando con El capitan, ovviamente su MAC.
Vi consiglio, qualora vogliate scaricarlo, di accertarvi con lo sviluppatore.

ALLINAIRE Jam#1 2021 SYNTRX : MOOG Matriarch, Minitaur, DFAM


"First Jam of 2021 featuring the Erica Synths Syntrx with Moog Matriarch, Minitaur & DFAM, with some Eurorack.
Two takes for overdubs with Syntrx doing noise/percussion and bass line (along with the Minitaur). Moog Matriarch is the sequenced main melody with MI Elements on bowed strings. DFAM does some percussion.
Both takes mixed and tweaked in Ableton."
