Top Ten Sounds - Arturia Polybrute -

video by GEOSynths

"Get Secrets Vol 1 Now -
Having made 96 Patches for the Arturia Polybrute, I decided to do a Video highlighting the Top Ten Patches I've made. I also give my thoughts on the Synth, things I like and others I don't.

It's not a Review as I don't go into the Oscillators and Filters and so on, as there's already quite a few, however I though it would be good to do a Video, so you can hear what a Professional Sound Designer thinks of the Arturia Polybrute."

Airfix 1:24 scale

video by Vykaar Tones

"A remix of a tribute track I made in 2018. Sequenced on the Digitakt and using midi control of Nord rack 2 for the originally polymoog part, korg odyssey for the bass and model D for the lead line. Digitakt sampled 808 bass and snare.
This maybe flagged as copyrighted. Ads may appear on this as it so closely models the original.
Pictures show some of the synthesizers I have worked on and some from famous clients."

ASM Hydrasynth Sound Demo by PAD Part 2

video by Pure Ambient Drone

"In this video, I demo some Hydrasynth synthesizer presets, patches and sounds!
The new Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) Hydrasynth keyboard is an eight-voice synth with rich options for sound design: with Wave Scanning oscillators, sound shaping via multiple Mutators, two flexible filters per voice, and a fully-thought-out effects section, Hydrasynth is a sound designer's dream. This is the Hydrosynth Keyboard and not the Hydrosynth desktop. Both their synth engines are the same but their interfaces have minor differences."

e-instruments Pure Piano | Play (iPad app Sounds demo)

video by Whentherushcomes

"Playing the Pure Piano iOS AUv3 app on the iPad, using the Roland FP-30 digital piano as a midi controller. Probably the best sounding piano app on iOS."

iOS App Store link:

"Pure Piano is a professional, multi-sampled concert grand piano instrument with a unique Morphpad that allows you to explore a multitude of sounds ranging from mellow and intimate tones to surreal, cinematic textures.
Similar to an XY pad, the Morphpad offers up nine core timbres of the piano. The 'pure' piano sits untouched at the heart and centre of the space, surrounded by eight more presets for you to explore as you guide your finger seamlessly through the wide-ranging tonal palette of the piano.
As you do so, the various timbres blend together allowing you to create your own sounds, and what’s more, the Morphpad works as a macro control for the app’s inbuilt effects adding even more to the experience by way of ever-changing texture and atmosphere, all from just one single piano."

IO Instruments - SPONDE patch examples

video by IO Instruments

"SPONDE might look like a simple nature on the surface. But when used smart, it can be used in many different ways as a center piece of a modular system.

- 6 channel stereo mixer
- 2 x 6 mono mixer
- mix 6 audio and 6 CV signal in parallel
- 8 x attenuator and 2 x 2 mixer (for audio or CV) at the same time

.. and many other combinations.

Let us kick off a little patch series:
- one mixer channel to be used as a submix to feed into a filter
- mix audio and CV material in parallel
- a jam using the direct outs/attenuators

00:00​ - Intro
00:15​ - SPONDE recap - what is it
00:50​ - Patch example: submixer
03:08​ - Patch example: audio + CV mixing in parallel
07:01​ - SPONDE jam: mix various audio and CV signals & use direct outs to control other modules
