How to make your Sequential Rev2 "Binaural"

video upload by peterkeys88

Check out my Rev2 Binaural Preset Pack "Mammoth Pads":

Let's make a patch. The Sequential Prophet Rev2 keyboard and module have been quietly binaural-capable since release. Here we'll explore what binaural means regarding a synth, and how to make your patches truly stereo (binaural) for a richer wider stereo image."

Nord Wave - Making waves since 2008 - [NO TALKING]

video upload by Marshal Arnold

"Ah, the Nord Wave, one of my favorites from back in the day! I bought one back in 2009, held on to it for a time, but sold it eventually. I am happy to report that this red beast here I snagged back in 2016. Oh, how lovely this synth sounds! IMO it has the best comb filter ever!

The Nord Wave had some very innovative features for the time. You could connect it to a computer and load your own samples in and use them as oscillators. The Wave Manager software is pretty good even today. It shipped with some Mellotron samples as well! I really love the Mellotron flute, so nice! It has basic FM with 19 two-operator FM algorithms. I hope to snag a Nord Wave 2 eventually, but for now this will do quite well.

I just scratch the surface in this demo, the synth comes packed with over 1000 presets, many are very good out of the box, but in classic Nord fashion the UI is right there for the tweaking!

Tiptop Audio Introduces ModFX and FSU Eurorack Effects Modules

SUPERBOOTH video here. Press release and pics via Tiptop Audio:

The Tiptop Audio effects module line continues with two new additions: ModFX and FSU. Built from the same platform as ECHOZ, ZVERB and the Z5000 they have the same easy to use and compact UI with CV control over all three DSP parameter and the Fidelity control over the DSP clock. Both are available in the White panel as well as the newer backlit Black panels.

ModFX offers three banks of modulations effects from classic stomp box and rack effects to more experimental processing not found in any other hardware. One of the strengths of this module is the creative ways it moves static mono sources into expansive stereo sound fields.

The Chorus bank has effects essential to electronic music production. Many classic synths like the Solina or Juno series used chorus as part of their trademark sounds. While Chorus is often a subtle process the widens and deepens the source sound – one that you almost don’t notice until it’s turned off – these eight programs include some more esoteric options that can create wobbly ambiences or deep detuned rooms particularly when combined with the Fidelity control.

Flange effects come from the modulation of very short delay times and this bank expands on that to include Karplus and Resonant pitch effects and panning using the Haas effect. Programs like the Chord Resonator can turn percussive tracks into harmonic material and the Haas panning creates wide stereo spreads without pitch or amplitude modulation.

ModFX’s Filter bank doesn’t have the typical high and low pass options common to synths and instead features a set of highly modulated and unusual filtering options. Programs include a couple of vintage inspired all pass filter based phasers, filter based panning and some vocal formant options.

FSU brings some more aggressive and destructive processing to the FX lineup form guitar pedal inspired distortion to granular processing to tape recorder style Sound on Sound looping. Distortions include Ring Modulation and Frequency Shifting for some vintage analog mayhem. Glitch bank has time based effects that abuse the aspects of delay and pitch pushing them to more experimental and extreme sounds. And Sound On Sound recreates one of the more interesting features of reel to reel tape decks that allowed overdubbing endlessly without multi-tracking. This bank uses a short tape loop and adds a variety of digital processes like pitch shifting and granular playback to make it even more experimental.

Firstly we checked out two delay units and then we got a look an monster of a programmable modulation matrix."

Roland Jupiter 4

via this auction

"Recently serviced Roland Jupiter 4. Early Japanese market model, by the serial number this would be the 150th off the assembly line. BA662 filters. Fully reworked at Bell Tone Synth Works in Philly. A bit more organic and they are known for having a mind of their own at times. Takes a while to warm up and get somewhat close to being in-tune. Coming from Junos and other DCO's, these are a whole different beast. After transport, I would advise having the synth re-calibrated."

Roland VP330 Vocoder Plus SN 870800

via this auction

"The synth has been recently serviced, thoroughly tested and is all working as it should be. Work included recapping the power supply, calibrating and testing all bands of the vocoder, cleaning/lubing all front panel sliders, replacing the slider dust covers with new replacements, cleaning the keyboard contact bussbars, cleaning rear panel jack sockets.

Cosmetic condition overall is excellent. There are minor marks, blemishes and wear to the wooden case. The metal panels have some marks and blemishes. All keys are clean and are aligned correctly"

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3 SN 5874

via this auction

"This is an extremely clean, gently used prophet 5 rev 3.3 in perfect working condition. There’s one small knick on the back edge (pictured), a couple wood imperfections so small as to almost not be worth mentioning, and a couple scuffs on the bottom from where it sat on the stand (was super bummed to find them). But honestly, without very close inspection, it looks and feels like it could be new.

Recently serviced including refreshed keyboard and upgraded power supply. Comes with original manuals and power cord. Would love to keep it, but am updating the studio and need the funds. May go without saying, but it sounds absolutely incredible!"

Oberheim OB-XA SN 813504 - 8 Voice 120 Patch Model w/ Midi

via this auction "This is priced firm. This synth need just a little TLC on some specific sections, and it ready for the prime time. Even with the Issues described it can still make music as I still use it till the day it goes in the box for sale. It can take 10 to 15 mins to warm up before AutoTune is pressed. After that It is very stable.

All the Bushing are great and no clicks keys, No pot has any scratchiness so thats good. All Knobs and Buttons work aside from the issues described below.
Midi Works as well and the Tape Input works as I put in the factory sound (Minus a few).

The 120 patch are not fully loaded but It can hold that much memory I erased a few towards the end to make room for custom patches. All voices pass Tuning but one of the voice slots fails the tuning.

ALL 8 Voice cards work and the Auto Tune test it Failed Voice card 7. Voice card 7 works if you switch its position to any other slot. So Slot 7 Controlled by the Disable switch means that the switch went bad. To Fix this it should be the 8 Voice Dip Switch.

The Performance section only effect 4 voices out of 8 so that may be Cable harness problem. Aside from those very specific issues every thing else works fully. The Midi works and is what I use all the time. Aside from the mentioned issues every thing works. This is a Big Heavy Synth and will be boxed up well."

SUPERBOOTH 2021: Rabid Elephant Portal Drum Updates

video upload by sonicstate

"We first saw the Rabid Elephant Portal Drum at Superbooth 2019 and it has come on along way since then. With some major improvements over the version that we saw in 2019 the Portal Drum has basically been completely redesigned. The design which we see here is the result of 3 years of development. Any kick drum that takes 3 years to design has gotta have some serious weight behind it."

OWL Max Tutorial 8: Gen Synth Voice EP1

video upload by Rebel Technology

"Cherif Hashizume is back with a new tutorial, and this time he is building a complete MIDI monosynth in gen~ for the Lich Eurorack module.

The patch will comprise dual VCOs, VCF, and VCA with an AR envelope. In this episode, we get to try out the new Lich template, and create a simple gen~ patch with dual VCOs: one square wave oscillator and one triangle oscillator, with adjustable waveshape, detuning, and oscillator mix.

Gen is an extension of the Max MSP patching environment from Cycling'74. Gen converts what you build visually into efficient compiled code. And thanks to the OWL platform, patches made with gen~ can be seamlessly compiled and loaded onto hardware, such as the Lich Eurorack module, or Witch desktop synthesizer."
