BOOMSTAR SE80 Sketch 04 -

video by Mason Chrysler

"As I dive deeper, the depths become clearer and clearer. This is a quick multi layer track made with the SE80. Recorded and processed in Logic.

The Boomstar SE80 is a monophonic synthesizer made by Studio Electronics. It has filters inspired by the legendary Yamaha CS-80 and sounds like a dream.

Thanks for listening!

As announced here, SUPERBOOTH21 is set for this coming September.

Tickets for the event go on sale this coming Monday at

The press release follows:

"Berlin, June 2021


This Monday - The presale for SUPERBOOTH21 starts! On June 14, a first limited contingent of day tickets will go on sale - the validity of the tickets is linked to a negative Covid-19 test, a complete vaccination or a proven recovery at the time of the event.

Tickets for the special events will go on sale starting July 15, including the DIY workshops, Gesprächskonzerte (lecture concerts) and boat shuttle. These tickets are only valid in conjunction with any day ticket. Then in August there will be another limited contingent of day tickets, of course at the same price.

Due to the official requirements, all ticket contingents are of course limited. All one-day tickets allow all-day access to the outdoor areas. In order to be able to guarantee the required distances between visitors, access to the indoor area of the FEZ Berlin will take place in a two-shift system, either in the morning or in the afternoon. There will be fewer booths inside than during past events - a total of about 150 international exhibitors can be expected. This year, the fairground offers a significantly expanded outdoor area, with ad- ditional tents in the forest, the Hüttendorf, the Fuchsbau, installations and new stages at the playground and Finnhütten. This turns a visit to SUPERBOOTH21 into a small adventure tour that not only sets new accents acoustically, but also as a hybrid between trade fair and festival.

The indoor area offers the advantage of largely non-obstructed architecture for the first time, because the foyer and the corridors remain free of exhibition stands. Visitors to SUPERBOOTH21 will be guided through the wide corridors of FEZ Berlin by a safe one-way system. In combination with the large outdoor area, this enables a safe event under current conditions."

Beat Bars Footswitch to MIDI adapter

video by boxoftextures

"This is not exactly a synth demo, but rather a demo of how to connect a "standard" sustain pedal to a laptop or iPad. Not too difficult a task but it took a little research to find a good pedal-to-USB adapter. I'm using the Beat Bars FS2M adapter, which I'm very happy with. 1/4" TRS jack on one end, micro USB on the other. Can take pretty much any one- or two-switch pedal and send it right to your computer. I mean, not that big a deal but didn't realize how much I missed having a pedal when using piano apps, for example. And yes, some MIDI keyboards have a pedal jack input, but with today's super-thin portable bluetooth MIDI keyboards that's perhaps starting to become a thing of the past.

Verbos Electronics Performance System

via this auction

"The classic Buchla 200/100 series sound without paying vintage market prices!

This performance system was a limited edition modular system (limited to 7 pieces in the red) from Mark Verbos which included his touchplate keyboard as well as four other modules mounted in a red Dark Modular portable 208 case with custom verbos power and cincon adapter, aluminum blank panels to fill the gaps.

The modules were arranged in this system to be best suited for live performance.

They include both touch and sequencing elements, two varieties of flexible oscillators and a very distinguishable vca.

This case has only been opened a dozen times at best and is basically in mint condition. It was purchased in 2015 from Analoguehaven for $3,199 (Total with tax $3,274)"

Osmose key feature: MPE Arpeggiator

video by Expressive E

"Osmose's Augmented Keyboard Action offers three continuous dimensions of control for each key: Initial Pressure, Aftertouch, and Note Bend. These dimensions do not only allow for unprecedented control when playing live on the keybed, but also play a major role in a new kind of arpeggiator that is included in Osmose: an MPE Arpeggiator.

Our MPE Arpeggiator has the classic parameters that you would expect, but on top of that, your gestures can introduce a myriad of variations to your pattern just by modulating every single note independently with your fingertips, no matter if using the internal Haken Audio EaganMatrix sound engine, or playing with external instruments. Indeed, Osmose's Arpeggiator opens up exciting possibilities even for regular, mono-channel, non-MPE instruments."

Monome Teletype | Episode 2 | Metronome Demons

video by Cinematic Laboratory

"I've created my first script for the Teletype, called 'Metronome Demons'. It samples the IN cv input once a second with the M (Metronome) script. CV outputs A & B are initialized (I script) with a slew of 1 sec.
In the Metronome script, the incoming CV is stored in Pattern Zero (the first pattern), simply referenced as P.
Patterns are 'arrays' with room for 64 numbers. An array is a table you can PUSH items in, POP items out or INS(ert) at a specific position. I chose to insert them on position (index) 0, which is the first item. This helps to see the numbers come in (tracker view). On specific intervals I'll send these numbers to CV outputs A, B and C.
So this patch can respond to sequencers, LFO's and pressure in mysterious ways, where the slew (portamento) will make weird transitions. The CV values are picked from the pattern P with random readers so it will always use the values you've gathered before and keep a relationship with what you've been harvesting. I don't think there's a module that can do this :).

The 'Metronome Demons' Script:
M 1000
CV.SLEW A 1000
CV.SLEW B 1000

P INS 0 0
P 0 IN
CV B P RRND 5 10
CV C P RRND 10 20"

"As a string player who found electronic instruments later on, the theremin has drawn me in for some time and I finally grabbed one! Here's my first attempt at trying to tame this thing!

The patch on the Polybrute is a decently complex one with lots of routings from the mod matrix. I hope you enjoy - let me know what you think!
