Anyma Phi (synth) and Doctor A (FX) - quick sound demo with TheoryBoard

video upload by SynthAddict

"Anyma Phi physical modeling sound demo (in Chinese D Pentatonic), just released from Kickstarter by Aodyo in France (maker of the Sylphyo). Audiothingies Doctor A is also included, an FX unit from France (see MATTHS cool modular YT video). Audiothingies also makes the MicroMonsta.
Even the visible Arturia KeyStep 37 (unused in the demo) is French. 😊

At the end, I recreate a classic delay feedback whoosh and boom just for fun. More demos coming soon… Anyma Phi is an interesting synth."

"System80 880. The eurorack 808.

This module kicks butt. But honestly I sold off my entire eurorack collection and have just this left and a case. I love this module, it responds perfectly to the Squarp Pyramid, and is a great source module at 60 HP.

The serial number is B-100."

Polivoks Creator Vladimir Kuzmin Teams up with Behringer

Another synth legend joins Behringer. You might recall KORG's Hiroaki Nishijima joined back in 2019. PPG's Hermann Seib joined in 2020. Luigi Scarano of fingersonic joined back in 2019 as well as Mode Machines Michael Thorpe. Robin Whittle of Devilfish fame almost worked out a deal to bring the Devilfish mods to the TB-3 but that fell through and Behringer moved forward without him. Not sure what the story was behind the Jasper WASP and then there's the Swing. It is interesting to see who is willing to work with Behringer and who isn't. You might recall Behringer sued Dave Smith Instruments/Sequential along with 20 forum members, they threatened to sue an online publication, and they created the Cork Sniffer. That said, here's the news:

"Vladimir Kuzmin and Behringer announced today that they have entered into a collaboration to develop a new Polivoks synthesizer.

Vladimir Kuzmin stated: “With great interest have I followed Behringer’s Vision to bring back iconic synthesizers and make them affordable for musicians. For all my life, I have been extremely passionate about synthesizers and I decided to contact Uli to see if Behringer would be interested to design a new Polivoks as I would love to see my legacy live on.

I designed the Polivoks in 1980 at the Urals Vector plant in Russia, while it was produced by the Formanta Radio Factory. The Polivoks has features that are very unusual on most analog synthesizers, which creates this very unique and distinctive sound, often referred to as “Russian synthesizer sound”. For many years it has been my dream to create a new and much improved Polivoks. Uli’s synthesizer Vision provides a fantastic opportunity for me to contribute to the reimagining of my Polivoks and to make it accessible to everyone - a Vision I profoundly believe in and want to be part of.”

Uli Behringer, commented: 'It’s an immense honor to have Vladimir Kuzmin on our team as he is a legendary synth designer. We are extremely proud, we could win him for our ambitious Vision.
This partnership demonstrates again that we welcome collaborations with boutique inventors and manufacturers, as we believe we can perfectly coexist and complement each other. We invite anyone interested in a possible collaboration to contact us at'

Here is a great article about Vladimir Kuzmin and his amazing Polivoks story."

Berlin School Electronica // Gotharman meets 5U Marienberg & Oakley Modular Synth


"Gotharman's Little Deformer 3, Gotharman's PolySpaze and my Marienberg + Oakley 5U Modular Synthesizer are having little Berlin School kind of synth jam session.

First, I patched up a typical analog synth sound with my 5U Marienberg/Oakley Modular Synth, which let me transpose the VCO and add fast FM with two switches.

I then programmed a 4 note sequence on Gotharman's Little Deformer 3 and sent it to the Modular via the CV.OCD MIDI to CV converter, which is easier for musical CV sequencing than the Deformer's own CV outputs.

The Linnstrument MIDI controller triggers the red Gotharman PolySpaze polysynth, which plays a morphable pad sound. Very simple, no MPE, etc. All audio goes into the Little Deformer 3, where it is mixed with the LD3's own sounds and processed with delay and granular audio FX.

On the LD3 there are three percussive parts playing and another 5 step sequence, which I fade in around the middle or so. All sounds can be muted, volume-controlled and even modulated with the mappable fron panel knobs. Of course, I also created a second morph layer, with a slightly different melody and changed FX settings, that produce more glitchiness and also tighter delay FX.

It was fun :) Let me know if you have questions in the comments below! Thanks for watching!

"Love Like Blood" sound on Akai AX-80

video upload by Valmont

"Waking up from a 9 minutes nap the other day I thought, out of nowhere, that the AX-80 had this OB-X resonance character... Immediately wondering about the hollow synth patch from Killing Joke, "Love Like Blood". So I went to recreate it, and well it sounds pretty close - especially when you know how far an OB-X and the AX-80 are from each other. The OB-X has discrete VCF, somewhere based on the SEM module, when the AX-80 has the CEM-3372 chip, which came later in the Oberheim Matrix-12 / Xpander. So that's some funny coincidence these sound in a similar way!

0:25 Creating the AX-80 patch
1:37 Effects
2:43 Sound check

Detailed AX-80 patch:
- OSC 1: Range 4' / Saw / Sub On / Out 99
- OSC 2: Range 16' / Detune 40 / Saw+Square / Cross Position 1 / Out 99
- VCF: Cutoff 55 / Resonance 63 / EG 50 / Key Follow 39 / High Pass 35
- EG: VCA=VCF mode / Attack 34 / Decay 46 / Sustain 70 / Release 23
- LFO OSC 1: Depth 10, Speed 21, Wave 4 (Triangle)

Detailed FX:
- SoundToys Decapitator
Brings some crunch material on the high part of the spectrum.
A gentle drive at 5%, in mode A, High Pass at mid range, tone at about 2pm. The whole thing 100% wet.
- Arturia Flanger BL-20
The closest plugin I had for that super slow phasing effect. I feel like the original sound had an additional chorus, before the flanger. Anyway, not too much doppler effect (Mix at 25%), rate at mid range, depth at 2pm. Add some High Pass on the wet signal at about 40%.
- Brainworx ACME Opticom XLA-3:
An opto comp that adds a bunch of super cool sounding harmonics. The input stage is always driving, so more than an opto comp I use it to give some super analog feeling. Basically slow response, overdriving the input (Input at 4) and well that's all x)
- Brainworx SSL4000-E
My favorite console sound :D Add some THD (-57dB on my slot), -6dB at 450Hz (LS), -2dB at 600Hz (HMF) and +5dB at 5.5KHz (HS). I really love the airy sound of this channel, it brings so much harmonic content created by the previous stuff!
- GoodHertz Megaverb 3
Depending of the mix version for the song, the amount of reverb is different. So I chose a nice long discrete verb for listening pleasure x) Basically reverb tone C, 4s decay, frequency range from 225Hz to 6KHz, at 9% wet.
- IK TR5 EQual
Remove some bits of the spectrum to get it less heavy: attenuation on the first harmonics (700Hz) and top-end content to avoid too much distortion sound in the balance. One more High Pass at 200Hz... And that's all!"

Introduction to looping & granular synthesis - With ADDAC112 VC looper & granular processor

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"Today we are going to get started with looping and granular synthesis, using the ADDAC system 112 VC looper and granular processor. An extensive module with lots of hands on and CV control over it’s looper and granular section. The possibility to record and store loops, and using those to build granular textures make it a bit of a workstation for granular processing, with an interesting approach.

In this video I quickly explain the concept of recording loops and using those to create grains. But mainly we go over most of the functions and features of this brand new module. I’d like to make a video with more patch ideas and sound demos in the future, so let me know if you have specific wishes!

Dreadbox Synths + Korg NTS-1 Synth Jam - Friday Fun

video upload by sonicstate

"This one came up fast and dirty - we were just about to break down the set for working on a new review and this just sort of happened. Yes its pretty derrivative ( we think that top line might be property of Mr Vangelis), but we thought it had a vibe and its got a thoroughly Greek vibe.

Stems available on our Patreon:

We're using the Dreadbox NYX MKII, Erebus MKII, Typhon, Korg NTS-1, Zoom MS70-CDR, Arturia Keystep Pro and the Conductive Labs MRCC MIDI patchbay."
