Yamaha CS50 plus Chase Bliss/Meris CXM 1978 reverb pedal

video upload by Osceeulator

"Spent some time seeing how these two legends pair with each other. One legend being the 1970s Yamaha CS50 and the other being the 2020 Chase Bliss/Meris CXM 1978 reverb pedal. Let’s dive in and see if both of these can either take us back to the 70s and/or explore new and uncharted modern day territory!"

Erica Synths x Sonic Potions LXR-02 & Norand Mono with Empress Reverb

video upload by Nightlife Electronics

"Here we have a lovely little Acid workout courtesy of the Norand MONO and Erica Synths x Sonic Potions LXR-02.

The Norand MONO is stretched and pulled into all kinds of familiar but fresh SH-101 style melodic Acid territory, all while the LXR-02 provides a hefty backbone of digital rhythm.

Both of these devices are similar in that they reward you for going deep into the depths and there are more than a few tricks hidden up the sleeves once you get there. Infectious rhythms and funky basslines are no sweat, from either box! Is it a synth or a drum machine? It's both!

A splash of ambience from the Empress Reverb just to finish it off and we are rolling!

All three available at Nightlife Electronics:

Erica Synths PERKONS HD-OI Leaked Pic

Looks like Erica Synths's "something unexpected" coming to SUPERBOOTH21 will be the PERKONS HD-OI.

It appears to be a drum machine based on the control section on the bottom left, and 4x step sequencer grid. Four drum voice sections on top followed by another section - effects, master? Note the joystick section on the bottom right. Each of the four sequencer rows appear to have a selector knob on the right. Tempo divisions?

Legible labels include:

FX Send and Level at the bottom of each voice section
Shuffle knob

NEW!!! OSIRIS - Bi-Fidelity Wavetable Osc by Modbap Modular

video upload by SoundsAndGear

"Dope new module announcement from Modbap Modular! Osiris is a powerful and neatly packed 12hp bi-fidelity wavetable oscillator with 7+ timbre modes including FM and phase modulation, an independent sub-oscillator, LoFi processing, extensive cv modulation capabilities, a pitch quantizer, 4 banks of 32 wavetables each (total of 128 wavetables across four banks), the ability to load user wavetables via micro sd card (not included) and it's own free open-source wavetable editor (OsirisEdit)."

via Modbap

Osiris is a bi-fidelity wavetable oscillator with 4 banks of 32 wavetables each (128 wavetables in total). Each wavetable has 32 waveforms at 256 samples per waveform.

Osiris is designed to be used as a powerful bi-fidelity wavetable oscillator with an added sub-oscillator. The sub-oscillator has its own v/oct, mix knob, and mono output. If the sub-oscillator output is not patched, the sub-oscillator output is normalized to the mix out. Essentially, the sub-oscillator can act as its own independent oscillator allowing Osiris to be utilized as two separate oscillators.

The Sub Wave allows for the selection of the sub oscillator’s waveform. The waveforms are – Square, Sine, Triangle, -1, -2, offering basic waves at a lower frequency than the main oscillator that add weight to the main oscillator. -1 and -2 represent a copy of the wavetable at 1 octave below and 2 octaves below the main oscillator, respectively.

The built-in VCA and decay parameters allow for wide-open melodic fades as well as easy percussive plucks.

Timbre Modes are a set of selectable forms of waveshaping that vastly expand Osiris’ range in sound possibilities. All of the Timbre Modes live on one CV-enabled knob, allowing for smooth morphing between modes which makes for some very cool blended timbres between modes. Timbre Amount allows for dialing in as much or as little of the selected timbre as desired.

Timbre Modes (Waveshapers)

Unison – Layers a second oscillator that detunes from slight beatings up to an octave.
Bend – Compresses the waveform to a thinner shape
Fold – Introduces symmetric 2-stage wave folding by first mirroring the waveform and then folding it
Sync – Repeats the cycle count of the waveform within a Hanning window, making the edges soft
Noise– Adds window-synced noise to the waveform phase
FM x 1 – Applies phase modulation to the oscillator using the same waveform
FM x ….8 – The FM scans through a ratio of 1 up to a ratio of 8 smoothly, with mixed stages in between

As a bi-fidelity wavetable oscillator, Osiris runs at 96khz for high-quality sound output but it also has a classic, pleasing, and musically gritty LoFi flavor. The CV-enabled Lofi knob controls the fidelity of the oscillator allowing it to go from subtle degradation to complete destruction. The sound of the LoFi parameter takes inspiration from old amiga computer audio characteristics, introducing sample jitter, phase drift, and resolution reduction. Because it is not a simple on/off switch, dialing in just the right amount of LoFi texture is easy.

Osiris allows the use of user wavetables via a micro-SD card (not included). Users may create, edit and save their own wavetables using OsirisEdit, an open-source wavetable editor designed specifically for OSIRIS to create wavetables and WavPaks (groups of Osiris ready wavetables organized into folders) that are compatible with the Modbap Modular Osiris oscillator. More on Osirisedit here.

Osiris was developed in collaboration with Ess Mattisson of Fors (

New BugBrand Modules In the Works

via the BugBrand newsletter:

"I'll be easing back into the modular - built stock is low at present - but soon up will be two new modules, both at 2FW:

2130 VCO - using the powerful new SSI2130 chip, this more macro oscillator offers Through-Zero Linear FM and voltage-controlled wave-morph: Triangle->Saw->Pulse

Phaser - it took quite a few prototype iterations, but finally there's a thick & rich sounding 12-stage phaser!"

Vintage Korg MS-20 Synthesizer With MK1 / Korg 35 Filter SN 141846

via this auction

"I'll start by saying, the new versions are def cool, but not even close in raw tone. The original is still the real deal. These are quirky, cool synths... the best of Japanese Filters for sure. Gritty, gnarly and more. Two OSCs of sweet tone. Notice there is no screw on the VCA section panel.. this is an original 35 filter version.. known to be much more aggressive in tone and much rarer than the latter filters : )"

Korg Electribe with SoundSaw app

video upload by Igor Vasiliev

"This video shows the sound processing of the drum machine Korg Electribe by the SoundSaw app, without additional effects and processing. It gives the specific lofi sound with a lot of overdrive and saturation. The SoundSaw app is great for processing the sound of drum machines. As one component and the mix.

SoundSaw is a complex sound processing app with easy-to-use controls designed to distort the sound of musical instruments or voice, and give the sound the aesthetics and atmosphere of noise, lo-fi, chiptune and experimental music scene.

Depending on the settings, it can add light distortion and saturation to the sound for a more natural and lively sound, or drastically change the sound and make it as loud and harsh as possible, full of all kinds of harmonics, crackles and rattles. The settings of this app provide great opportunities for experiments with sound destruction.

The SoundSaw works on iPhone and iPad standalone and as Audio Unit with external parameters, and is also compatible with Ineter-app Audio hosts and Audiobus."

Waldorf Iridium and SOMA Cosmos [New Firmware]- Synth Jam - Friday Fun

video upload by sonicstate

"Big thanks to @Technomadic for the loan of his Waldorf Iridium - the desktop incarnation of the larger Waldorf Quantum. We're pairing that with the Soma Cosmos Drifting Memory Station - (just reviewed) but it has a new Firmware - currently Beta, which adds a more traditional Looping option. This will be available as some point in the near future, but we thought we'd use it.

WAV File available via our Patreon Page

The Arturia Keystep 37 is plugged into the Iridium USB host port (no MIDI cables needed), the Iridium then goes directly into the Cosmos and out to the recording.

The Iridium is certainly a lovely piece of hardware with a ton of features and synthesis options - sadly we didn't have time to go into that, but the hardware is really lovely."
