Moog Matriarch: Here on Earth - an ambient demo

video upload by MIDERA

"My daughter turned 4 today. She's very much into Octonauts, so I have to be Captain Barnacles, Peso, or Shellington (and I think my impressions are pretty spot on). She got her wish - which was to have Shellington put her to bed tonight. There's nothing I enjoy more than being with her and reading books or pretending to be octonauts (which happens to take up probably 80% of our time together). When I ask her who her favorite person is, it's no longer Papa. It's 'Barnacles' or 'Shellington.'

I imagine, years in the future, she'll call me from college and I'll say, 'Kwazii, sound the octo-alert,' And she'll just say 'Daaaaad....'

Anyway, this track just sort of represents those lucid moments I have with her, with my family, just enjoying what really is the best part of being here on Earth.

"I absolutely adore the aggressive tone of oscillator sync and so would like to share a small patch with you guys . This incorporates the use of the random wave from the LFO to, bring forth some delicious analog aural pleasure."

1993 Quasimidi Quasar M.A.S.S. SN 801-13908

via this auction

"The Quasar from Quasimidi is a rack-mounted digital synthesiser module which was released in 1993. A synth that was satisfying to the Techno crowds of the day and also General MIDI friendly.

The presets and drum sounds eschewed the typical General Midi specification, which was in vogue at the time, in favour of electronic and trance techno styles. The Quasar included an arpeggiator, which was an unusual feature in 1993.

The synthesizer also features a robust set of effects from Chorus, vibrator to delays, reverbs, and vocoder effects."

Sequential Adds Patch Morphing to Pro 3 Multi-filter Mono Synth

Pro 3: Patch Morphing With J3PO video upload by

Update: added video above.

In addtion to 32 New Wavetables and 128 New Sounds, Sequential adds patch morphing to the Pro 3.

via Sequential:

San Francisco, CA—July 9, 2021—Sequential today announced a major enhancement to their acclaimed Pro 3 multi-filter mono synth — patch morphing. Users can now morph between two different sounds using one of the synthesizer’s many real-time controllers such as its mod wheel, touch slider, or key pressure. This provides many new possibilities for real-time expression and dramatic timbral variation.

To use the new feature, users will need to upgrade to version 1.2 of the Pro 3 operating system, which is currently available in pre-release or “Beta” format on the Sequential User Forum. The OS upgrade is provided free of charge to Pro 3 owners.

“The Pro 3 is already the deepest, most versatile mono synth we’ve ever designed — and we keep making it even more awesome,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “Now patch morphing takes live performance to a whole other planet. The sonic territory that lives between two different patches is pretty vast, and with real time control of that, users will get to places they’ve never heard before.”

A hybrid instrument, the Pro 3 features three classic analog filters (Prophet-6, OB-6, and ladder) and three oscillators (two VCOs and one wavetable oscillator) along with a 16-track sequencer, and the ability to connect with modular synths through its four control voltage ins/outs. The feature set is rounded out with a multimode arpeggiator, three LFOs, four loopable ADSR+delay envelopes, dual digital effects (delays, reverbs, and various time-based effects), tuned feedback, analog distortion, and extensive modulation possibilities. The synth is also capable of 3-voice paraphonic operation.

Sequential is offering two versions of the Pro 3, the standard edition, and the Pro 3 SE, a special edition that puts the same synthesis power into a collector-worthy design with a tilt-up control panel and premium-grade walnut trim.

The Pro 3 standard edition has a US MAP of $1,599.

The Pro 3 SE has a US MAP of $2,099.

Korg MS-20 Mini Feedback Patching Walkthrough

video upload by Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video resident expert Nick Bigelow shares a few feedback patching tips and tricks with the Korg MS-20 Mini Synthesizer.

The MS-20 played a vital role KORG’s history as a synthesizer brand.Even after sales of the original, released in the late 70’s, came to an end, KORG has carried on the MS-20 tradition in a mini-sized reissue, a software synthesizer plugin, and even a kit version. These were driven by our pride in our synthesizer heritage, our understanding of its historical significance, our responsibility to faithfully carry on the analog circuit technology that we've developed over the years, and our desire to pass on its generation-spanning sound to the future.

A New Ember: Flame 4VOX Polyphonic Wavetable Oscillator

video upload by Red Means Recording

"The 4Vox is a quad wavetable oscillator with up to four voices per VCO channel, resulting in a maximum of 16 voices at four individual outputs.

This is a weird one. I sold it after having it for about a week after buying it new. It's a really interesting oscillator but I found it pretty unwieldy to use. YMMV!"

"Since it's launch in 2014 the Moog @Werkstatt has been a perfec synth to enter to the amazing world of synthesizers, with the re-launch at the end of 2020 all the hype came back and with the addition of the CV Expander it's more live than ever."

Ambient With a Spy Recorder and Ciat-Lonbarde Synthesizers

video upload by HAINBACH

"I switched up my trusty cassette dictaphones for a the "spy recoder", the Série Noir Nagra SN and the results are huge, at least to my ears. I left the window open while recording the piano with they tiny included mic, so you can hear all the little drops of rain on the balcony. The detail on this tiny reel to reel recorder, which was first commissioned by the FBI and later found use in law enforcement and film sound, is astounding. Full video on its musical application coming, enjoy the music in the meantime!

“IOLabs Flux 35 - Meet Anima Phi” by Friendly Noise

video upload by Friendly Noise

"In this video, Flux controls via Befaco VCMC the physical modelling monophonic synthesizer Aodyo Anima Phi. The unexpectedly organic sequences generated by Flux make a great combination with the wide range of Anima Phi’s sounds. Flux’ macro pots are assigned to Density, Compression, Curve and Humanise.
Slider 8 on VCMC generates mod-wheel CC."

02:14 Kontakt Action Strikes

04:37 Chromaphone 3
06:00 Chromaphone 3

This video shows the power of Flux after the firmware upgrade V1.06.
Flux is now fully controllable via midi messages and it sends midi control signals, too.
You can use the midi port on the back pannel or the coming little expansion module.
Flux is class compliant. :-)

When combined with different VST instruments, the intricate and ever evolving patterns that Flux can generate simply shine. Everything is based on an 8 step sequence."
