Prophet 12 and Elektron Monomachine demo

video upload by MIDERA

"Just put this together after liking the sound I made on the Prophet 12. Drums and one part is from the Monomachine (as well as sequencing). The main part is the P12."

Release by MATTHS

"Acclaimed Radiophonic Workshop collaborator and Brighton-based electronic producer MATTHS (Matthew Hodson) presents dark, brooding and extreme techno productions that boast brutality within the breadth of the production aesthetic. Feeding the grit and distorted bass frequencies with melancholic melodies, MATTHS is back with another taste of honest and up-front sounds to please your inner confused self.

MATTHS is presenting a series of new releases for 2021 which will see him release one new track every month, see’s him working by recording a single take using a bespoke modular synthesiser setup, MATTHS brings you into his new direction of heavy experimental techno.

MATTHS (Matt Hodson) says: 'this project is the result of designing a new bespoke instrument that had to be tactile, it had to feel like an instrument, and it had to provide a rich pallet sonic exploration. Each track will be a complete take, no edits, complete with its imperfections and human fingerprint where my hands have turned every dial, released every noted and sculpted every tone. This approach to releasing music is different to that of releasing a normal album and I hope that the monthly musical output will take you somewhere different each time, having its own fingerprint but still be recognisable as a MATTHS production. You may know what to expect, but you will never get the same.'

All of the new releases for 2021 will be available through his own label ‘Solitude’ at MATTHS’ Bandcamp page, including hours of high-quality live performances, remixes and exclusives for subscribers such as behind the scenes studio work, track breakdowns and more live performances."

Simmons SDSV w/ 7 MODULES SN 002114

via this auction

"This SDSV is in great condition for its age. It has 2 bass modules, 1 snare module, 4 Tom modules, and the mixing section on the right. These are extremely hard to find with all 7 module slots filled up and this one works great! Has 4 different selections of adjustment on each module. Only thing to point out is that on the bass module all the way to the left, on one section the decay knob broke off. The knob/decay still works perfectly on it and you can turn it using your fingers, it’s just a little short. You also have 3 other sections of adjustment on this module so you have plenty adjustable settings. This module works perfectly on every single knob and they were all tested."

Novation DrumStation Rack

via this auction

"This is the first true 808/909 clone!

Unlike the rest which use only samples, the Drum Station employs analog Sound Modeling - digitally synthesized models of the original waveforms which can be shaped, just like analog. This means you can adjust the tone, attack, decay, tuning, snap, and distortion of its drum tones. It includes all of the sounds found in the original 808 and 909's, the same tone controls for each drum part, and my favorite is the DIN Sync output which will allow you to sync a , 909, or 808 to it, just like the original boxes."

MUSEUM OF EVERYTHING ELSE, a quick tour #Shorts
video upload by LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"Quick tour of the museum of everything else.

we are only opening every sunday due to the pandemic,
we are offering very limited ticketed entry.
Each monday the following Sundays ticket link is posted to Patreon and youtube membership to offer people to get the ticket which is £6 entry.
Then on the Wednesday the link is made public if any tickets are left.
The reason for this is because patrons helped fund it so to avoid a ticket scramble they get a chance to book, if you want a head start any tier on patreon/youtube membership has access to these links.
When we are out of the woods regarding the pandemic it will be a lot less restricted entry and ticket links will be public and we will accept walk ins, however right now it is strictly ticketed entry."

Erica Synths Matrix Mixer - Review

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"This is a review and exploration of the Matrix Mixer desktop digital modulation and routing matrix that's taken from the Syntrx and plumbed into your entire modular system.

I forgot to mention MIDI - you can use program change messages to select patterns, which is nice!

Erica Synths sent me the Matrix Mixer to do this video but has no influence over the content.

"The Matrix Mixer routes and connects modulations and mixes audio signals in a fluid and memorable way. It then lets you switch between saved configurations to vary and transform your patch. Hopefully, this jam demonstrates a bit of this."

Knobula Poly Cinematic - first play

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"Only scratching the surface of this amazing polyphonic module from Knobula. The Poly Cinematic is a very cool polysynth wrapped up in a compact Eurorack module. Much more to come! This was literally my first, pre-manual reading, mess about and I already love it!

This is a pre-production module sent to me by Knobula."


Knobula Poly Cinematic not quite review

"Introducing Poly Cinematic. The powerful compact synthesiser that brings big synth polyphony to Eurorack. It's simple to use with a dedicated knob or switch for each parameter, giving you immediate access to all the controls that really matter in the world of polyphonic pads and stabs. No presets, no menus, just a good honest tactile experience that puts pure sound synthesis at your fingertips.

Poly Cinematic can be played via midi as well monophonically over CV/Gate. As a monophonic module it can play one of 8 chord stacks, selectable using CV control, so it is as much a 56 oscillator mono synth as it is a luscious poly synth.

Here is a list of main features:
7 oscillator supersaw per voice
3 oscillator syncable wave shaped square/pulse
3 oscillator detuned tonewheel organ
8 chord memory controlled by cv/gate
Detune control with unison/5th/sub octave sweet spots
3 filter types: lowpass, notch and highpass
Built in high quality reverb"

Spectral Shiatsu Max For Live - touching your way through the spectrum

video upload by Sensel

"This unique Max for Live device relies on your touches and their pressure on the Morph to reveal the different frequencies of a sound from different times of a sound recording. Rather than using different buttons to create notes, each contact on the Sensel Morph reveals parts of a sound's frequency spectrum, playing short loops. These are some examples of different sounds and effects that can be achieved with this instrument." Tangible Frequencies with Spectral Shiatsu Max for Live: Overview and Tutorial
