EPROMgrind a sample pack by Goldbaby

video upload by GoldbabySamples

"Available now. Gritty, punchy drums, dirty synths and FX with loads of old school character. Created using an 8-Bit sampler that can burn EPROMs (Oberheim Prommer) and the DMX and DX drum machines."

Fenix IV sample scrubbing

video upload by splitradix

"The Fenix IV digital oscillator has a wavetable mode that can play SoundFont samples. In this patch I've just set it up to scrub through the default samples that come loaded in it (you can also import your own), with some filter FM for added taste."

Noise Engineering Introduces the Quantus Ampla VCA VCA

via Noise Engineering

"Quantus Ampla is a compact four-channel VCA. But it’s not just any VCA: with some unique normalizing, mixing, and CV options, and a bit of NE flair, you can use it for tons of stuff. From the top, each channel has two independent modes: Amplify, which gives you normal VCA response, and Attenuate, which makes the VCAs close instead of open in response to positive CV. The CV inputs are circularly normalled, so you can easily create ducking effects over multiple voices, volume fades, and transitions, all with minimal patching. Plus, the outputs mix down, so it can be two two-channel mixers, a 3-channel mixer plus a VCA, a 4-channel mixer...mix and match to your heart’s content. Did we mention it’s DC-coupled? Yep, you can use it to process CV signals, too.

You can never have too many VCAs. Your Quantus Ampla is waiting for you."

Exploding the Noise Engineering Versio Effect Modules

video upload by Red Means Recording

"Did I say exploring? I meant exploding.
In this video, we step modulate the ever-loving heck out of the three current Noise Engineering Versio effect modules: Imitor, Ruina, and Desmodus Versio. We'll use the Make Noise 0-Coast as the sound source. It will be fun, I promise."

Multivox MX-202 String and Brass Synth SN 230161

via this auction

"Great Multivox string and brass machine. Basically a spec for spec copy of the Roland RS-202 string and brass instrument only that it goes C to C instead of F to F. This is a simple but unique instrument - there are brass, strings 1 and 2, with the ability to blend them. There's vibrato, a little bit of envelope control and the most epic feature of them all... the ensemble (Chorus) effect, which has 2 modes. There's something really magical about these effects - they turn a relatively simple synth sound into a beautiful warm swirling analog string / brass patch. I mostly used this with a stereo reverb pedal which gave me really awesome Solina-type sounds."

Roland FANTOM V2.5 Update Performance Demo by Youngr

video upload by RolandChannel

"Singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Youngr performs a live recording session using the free FANTOM V2.5 update with official Ableton Live integration and the new Virtual ToneWheel Organ. Using just his FANTOM synthesizer connected to his computer via USB cable, Ableton Live, and a mic, watch Youngr create an instant hit in real-time. To weave his track, he uses his FANTOM as a hub controlling Ableton Live, records auxiliary instruments, and taps into the wide selection of ZEN-Core sounds. And without the use of a mouse or keyboard, Youngr combines FANTOM’s internal ZEN-Core sound engine, including the new Virtual ToneWheel Organ, with the internal clip sequencer and Ableton Live to create this fresh track.

About Official Ableton Live Integration

Using FANTOM’s high-resolution touchscreen, you can view and launch clips in Live’s Session view, access Live’s mixer parameters, and trigger transport functions. And with FANTOM’s knobs, sliders, and pads, you’ll be able to operate Macro Controls, mix levels, Drum Racks, and more. The seamless workflow between FANTOM and Ableton Live will keep you focused on your music when the creative juices are flowing.  

About the Virtual ToneWheel Organ

With the famous Roland VK organ series as its foundation, the Virtual ToneWheel Organ allows you to tap into an authentic emulation of the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ. This includes several tone wheel types with adjustable percussion, key click, leakage, and more. A lush rotary effect allows you to adjust variable speed, brake control, and tube distortion characteristics. And FANTOM’s touchscreen, sliders, knobs, and keyboard action are automatically configured for a natural organ-playing experience."
