The Deafening Roar of Words Left Unspoken by Audio Illustrator

New track from supporting member, James Newman aka Audio Illustrator of New Man Studios who had the following to say about it:

"I just finished this new piece that kind of revolves around a simple sequence ostinato being played by my DFAM. Here is what I wrote about this piece:

'In this life we fail too often to speak words that need to be said. May we not live a life of regrets from our silence echoing as thunder.

I hope you enjoy my latest piece called 'The Deafening Roar of Words Left Unspoken'."

Moog Prodigy Multilangual Manual w/ Prest Pages

via this auction

"Original manual from a long lost Moog Prodigy, one of the funkiest synths on the planet, used by Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers and many many more. Except the vintage look and operational instructions in 4 languages, you get many pages with position of the knobs, which are kind of "presets" for different sounds..."

TECHNOSAURUS MICROCON - Swiss-Made Micro Analog Mono Synthesizer SN TMC-2121

via this auction

"Nice fun little ultra-portable totally analog synthesizer, about the size of a VHS tape. (Remember those?) It was made in 1999 or so by Technosaurus, a Swiss company best known for their high-end Selector modular synths. It is handmade using the same discrete circuits as the Selectors. And built like a tank it is, very solid construction.

The Microcon has one main oscillator capable of either sawtooth or square waveforms, just like the TB-303. The addition of a sub-oscillator is more the like SH-101, which can help beef up your bass sounds. The analog lowpass filter is switchable as either 2-pole (12dB/oct) or 4-pole (24dB/oct), which is better than the TB-303 or SH-101 offered. The LFO can modulate the filter cutoff frequency with either triangle or square wave and the VCO can be modulated by square or triangle waves. Simple attack and decay envelope controls and a Glide effect round out the controls. Plus a little red button to trigger it manually.

Please note that this is the original Microcon, and does not have a midi input like the Microcon II. This version only uses CV and Gate for being controlled externally. The last three photos are pages from the manual describing its operation. You can download a copy of the manual for yourself at: [link - some pics of the inside there as well]

Arturia Polybrute Sound Design - Vangelis Blade Runner Theme (Free Patch)

video by Creative Spiral

"Polybrute landed today. Woohoo! I spent a bit of time acclimating myself with the interface and doing some technical tests for voice modeling, then programmed a first patch inspired by Vangelis Blade Runner theme.

I've uploaded the patch here if you want to download it for free:

This synth is going to be amazing for replicating classic CS and MemoryMoog type of sounds, and with all the modulation capabilities, it will explore many new worlds. Definitely looking forward to spending time on this spaceship."
