Two Erica Synths DB-01s attempt Subharmonicon ambience

video by Richard DeHove

"Can two Erica Synths DB-01 Bassline machines achieve Subharmonicon-style ambience? They are wildly different in design and capabilities but the DB-01s can do a surprisingly good impression of "meandering ambience". Here I run through the entire setup and tweaks with less talking as the video goes on. What I did find is that the wonderful Polivoks filter won't be denied and the machines seemed to naturally gravitate to grit and filth and finally ended up in dark ambient territory. For contrast listen at 4:35 and then jump to 20:20. Both machines are running through the same Fabfilter Pro-R reverb setting at a 25% mix.

PS: The focus becomes steadily softer through the video. Why? Who knows, but it's the last time that camera will fail me. Next time, a new camera.

"I'm in the final stages of putting together a collection of 20 ambient/cinematic patches for the Peak (mostly pads, some arps and leads), but whilst I'm doing that I wanted to share some of the cool patches that'll be included! The full collection should be out either this Sunday 30th May or the Sunday after that :)

Hope you enjoy!!"

Cosmotronic Vortex - Thru Zero Complex Oscillator

video by Cosmotronic

"All sounds are dry and straight from the vco, except for the Delta-V VCA."

"A new 100% analog complex oscillator, featuring two independent VCO's. Both voices have a unique signal path and flavour. Complex cross modulations entangle them together, opening up completely new timbral territories.

Features inlude the Thru Zero trinity; Frequency, Phase and Amplitude modulation.
Each oscillator also has its own Low Pass Filter, which works great to mellow the harsher tones from complex intermodulations.

Each VCO has great tracking and temperature stability, there is no distinction between a carrier and modulator.

The FM bus modulates the index of each individual voice, with linear and exponential inputs for external sources. There are also inputs for Sync in, with both soft and hard sync.

The left VCO signal chain starts with a shape function, that lets you morph between triangle and saw. This waveform is also available as a separate output.

Next is a sinusoidal wavefolder, which changes its response dramaticaly based on shape of the waveform. The circuit is based on a modified version of a design by Barrie Gilbert from 1977, popularized by Open-Music-Labs (used with permission)
This circuit also creates the possibility of Thru Zero Phase Modulation, here the depth is controlled with the third slider. The source is normaled to VCO 2, but external modulation sources can be patched in, and the depth can also be modulated with CV.

Lastly there's a 2-pole Low Pass Filter, before going out the MAIN output. All parameters can be CV controlled, and feature handy attenuators at the inputs.


The first slider is a continuous waveform shaper, that morphs from sine to tri to saw.

This waveform then enters the Thru Zero Amplitude Modulation (Ringmod) section. The slider sets the depth of modulation, with the source normalized to VCO 1. The depth can be CV controlled, and an external source can be patched as well. The result is also available on a separate output, pre wavefolder/filter (VCO 2 sine).

The third slider is a wavefolder, it's based around a novel wavefolding topology, with a unique and more aggressive sound compared to the sinusoidal folder of VCO 1.

The wavefolded signal goes into a 2 pole Low Pass Filter, and out of the MAIN output."

Roland S-10 | Install a QD emulator - step by step

video by Espen Kraft

"Roland S-10 sampler from the mid 80s. A quick install tutorial on how to put in a QD emulator. It's really nothing to it, but be aware that you might have to loosen up the key bed to be able to cut the zip-ties holding the cable down. Otherwise it might be too short. The MKS-100 and S-220 should be just as easy, but I can't confirm that personally so check with the seller first."

G-Storm Electro Patches for Roland Jupiter-6 [Demo #4]

video by gstormelectro

"Audio + Video by G-Storm Electro c. 2021

Auditioning some original Roland Jupiter-6 patches available for download.
I had the good fortune of getting another Jupe in the studio.
The previous one that had Europa was sold.
This one is an earlier model, and was purchased dead.
After bringing it back to life and calibration...
Soon I had quickly re-programmed all my favorite sounds.

This video is unrehearsed, so lots of noodling.
Not dwelling too long on any one sound, to save your time.
So if you skip around, you might miss something. Just sayin' :D
Chord stabs, sweeps, bass, arpeggio, sound fx, leads.
Patch F7 is my template (default, or blank) patch.
Patch F8 is my scratch patch,
for when I can't remember what location I wanted to over-write.

The Roland Jupiter-6 has only rudimentary midi capability:
simple note on/off and patch change midi message only.
So, these patches can only be dumped all at once using the cassette interface.

Download the patches as an mp3 audio file on my blog:
I have used the JP-6 VERIFY function and confirm the audio file is good.

No additional effects or processing was used, aside from some normalization.
Video was made in great haste - so it's un-edited, some audio levels are clipping.
And sometimes scratchy volume pot."

DEMO - Arpleasiator Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Mike Davis

video by Isotonik Studios

""The lack of an arpeggiator option on the novation circuit has always been one of the weaknesses of its synths, and while there's workarounds, there has never been an immediate way to arpeggiate a note that's playing...until now

Arpleasiator is a pack for the Novation Circuit tracks that features 64 dual oscillator patches, each with multiple arpeggio functions and control, a host of performance features in the encoders and 64 hip hop, house and 8bit drum and percussion samples

Every patch is arranged to include 2 separate oscillators which can be voiced separately or combined with the turn of a knob, each of these oscillators can also be arpeggiated with the turn of another knob, essentially giving you 128 different oscillator choices in this pack, each with the ability to be modded and transposed on the fly.

Patches range from low dirty bass, and grinding saws, to twinkly plucks, and sustained pads, which can be used for a wide range of music or sound design...your creativity is the limit.

Macros are arranged in a way that best suits performance, movement, and change of sound, as there are separate encoders for turning arpeggio on and off, changing between the two oscillators, changing speed of arpeggio, changing voice and pitch of arpeggio, adding drive and distortion, and even a secret sauce knob.

A song or a loop can be completely transposed in time with the turn of a couple of knobs, really elevating jams and live performances, and really pushing the limitations of the Circuit tracks

We put a lot of love into this pack, and with its expansiveness and variability, it could be the end all be all circuit pack for you.

macro 1- turns arpeggiator on and off (normal - arpleasiator)
macro 3 - switch between oscillators (2 different synths!!!)
macro 4 - change arpeggiator speed
macro 5 - detune
macro 6 - Sustain/release (Ambient mode)
macro 7 - Portamento/Decay
macro 8 - Drive/Distortion (when you need that EXTRA boost)

voice stealing can occur between oscillators when switching...if this occurs, just pump the drive/distortion knob(macro 8)...its there for a reason.

Apply secret sauce knob sparingly because it can really thrash whatever sound you're playing (or maybe that's exactly what you want)"


Making Synth Bass Sounds w/ Janek Gwizdala

video by Perfect Circuit

"While we are endlessly fascinated with the ever-expanding world of synthesizers, in reality there are many paths towards the same or similar sonic destinations. A good subtractive synthesizer is certainly a great tool for generating raucous tones capable of cracking paint on the walls, however you can easily achieve similar results by using an instrument like electric bass paired with a well-selected assortment of effects pedals. This is exactly the theme of this video where masterful bass player Janek Gwizdala demonstrates his approach for crafting rich-in-flavor synthetic tones with his trusted instrument and a moderately-sized pedalboard.

Originally from the UK, Janek is a Los Angeles based musician, composer, and producer. He also has his own vastly popular YouTube vlog where he offers his insights into everything music, and shares his passion for music technology. Having played with an impressive number of high caliber jazz musicians ranging from Mike Stern to Pat Metheny, Janek possesses a wealth of experience, and creative wisdom making it difficult to imagine a better candidate for this demonstration. Sit back, and enjoy the funk!

Getting Started with the Sensel Morph and Vital Synthesizer MPE

video by Sensel

"In a presentation style influenced by Cuckoo's mirror, Peter takes a deep dive into creating a MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) preset in Vital from @Matt Tytel. Starting from scratch, we create a very basic wavetable from a sample, and stretch, modulate and tweak until we achieve an other-worldly sound design under our fingers.

This doesn't cover every single detail, but is a complete walkthrough from patch initialization to a richly modulated and effected sound design.
