Short improvisation on EX5, PEAK, MPC, Reface DX

video upload by Floyd Steinberg

"I made this super happy groove on some of my synths. Just joking, it's the same depressing stuff as always. ;-) As you perhaps can see, there are 6 patterns on the MPC I'm switching between while also playing EP on the EX5 and a lead on the Reface DX. Sometimes I'm switching patches."

Ambient Explorations pt.22 (Oberheim SEM)

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"I was able to borrow the Oberheim SEM for a few hours and see what its tonal possibilities and strengths are. I connected my Arturia Keystep 37 via a 5-pin MIDI cable into the input of the SEM, to be able to play it. What you are hearing is 3 separately recorded tracks that come together into one composition. I love its tone. It is a little bit different than Moog, it sounds more creamy and warmer in my opinion. Write in the comments what you think of it!

Podcast 366: Paula Maddox

video upload by 20Objects

"Paula Maddox is a wonder. She’s got an amazing history of synth design, and the work continues; her current company (Dove Audio - produces modules in Euro and 5U format, featuring her unique take on wavetables-as-oscillators. We share a passion for wavetables and single-cycle waveshapes, so it was a natural that we talk.

In our discussion, we cover everything from her history in electronics, the path to synth design, and a review of many of the synths that she has had her hand into. From the infamous Monowave, through the Modal 008, 002 and 001, and into the work developing the Dove Audio products (including some exciting new designs), we get a chance to hear how it comes together and where it is going in the future.

"I started to work on my next album, and while working on my own custom presets for the M, i stumbled across these sounds, and i decided to do another short 'testing' video. Enjoy. FX are from the excellent reverb pedal "R1" from Walrus Audio. I added a few pictures from our family trip to the zoo, to keep everything fresh. The short drum sequence is from Sonic Charge Microtonic, my alltime favorite drumsynth."

"This week the HWJ was to express your feeling / emotion within your music. Whilst it is true to say that I can feel very different from day to day...and even hour to hour...when I sat down to write this it was a moment of peacefulness and content-ness. And the only thing that spoke to me was, 'Gratefulness'

I hope you enjoy
