SCI Prophet 5 Rev 2 - Strings and Reverb

video upload by Glen H

"Some improvising on the rev 2 with heaps of reverb from strymon blue sky"

Introductions: The Teisco 110F Duophonic Synthesizer + Demo Track~

video upload by Vintage Synthesizer Solutions

"In this video, we barely scratched the surface of what this instrument can do and the depth of its operating modes/feature set. We'd like to do a deeper dive into this synth to demonstrate patch creation and other functionality on a deeper level in the future, if there is interest. Fun fact: Kawai applied both their own name and the Teisco brand name when manufacturing the SX210 and SX-240, depending on the market in which it was to be sold."

"About the Conforce Novation PEAK/SUMMIT presets
PEAK has easily become one of my favourite hybrid synthesizers, it has a very nice contemporary character and shares the best of both digital and analog. It’s just as good in mono as it is in poly mode and this makes it versatile and forms a strong creative allrounder. PEAK fills a nice gap between all the analog violence and classic FM/PCM synthesizers in my studio and it stands on itself. It has been really inspiring to program these sounds and learn what it is capable of. I tried to look for the boundaries and explore the expressive character without leaning on classic sound references only. The Cliffhanger Volume 1 presets are great from a musical perspective for different electronic genres but they will also appeal to those who like things trippy and experimental. I think this preset pack is nailing pretty much all the sweet spots of the Novation PEAK and SUMMIT according to my audio standards.

Don’t look further and revitalise your PEAK with fresh patches, it’s the set you want to get! I wish you happy music making.

"Hey guys so here is my new sound demo of the LXR 02 by Sonic Potions x Erica Synths! This time focusing on the melodic possibilities of this awesome machine.

Fun with Random Ratcheting

video upload by boxoftextures

"Ratcheting is when you take one step in a sequence and have more than one note play in the same amount of time. Some sequencers let you specify how many notes you want in each step, but most just play one note per step. Ratcheting can take a "regular" sequence and give it a bit more pizzazz, and that's fine as far as it goes. In this video we're going to use clocks, a sample and hold, and a special ratcheting module to insert occasional ratchets in randomly chosen steps to take things to another level. Standard ratchets are perfectly fine, but when they come in at unexpected and unknowable semi-random moments the whole sequence keeps you just that much more on edge.

One thing I should perhaps mention is that I got a snazzy new lavalier microphone. However, due to user error I think what I actually did was record the voiceover in Logic using my laptop's built-in mic. I route my audio in Loopback but even if you set everything up correctly you still have to double check and make sure Logic knows to use Loopback for the audio routing. I've made this same mistake before with my headset mic but I've always caught it in the past. So let's all take this as an opportunity to learn that no matter how hard you try it's very easy to realize you didn't quite try hard enough. Or something.

This video description brought to you by the letters A and Z, mostly because it's hard to believe I actually use both pizzazz and snazzy in the same bit of text.
