Numeric Repetitor patch and jam with BIA and Manis Iteritas - with some explanation

video upload by Rochefsky

"I started playing around with the Numeric Repetitor clock mangler module from Noise Engineering - in my new kit of ALL Noise Engineering modules.
I finally am getting the hang of this thing and some fun ideas started flowing.

Patch: I take the prime output from the numeric Repetitor (NR) into the trigger of the Basimilus Iteritas Alter (BIA) and the “factor 1” output of NR into the clock of the Mimetic Digitalis (MD). The channel 1 output from MD then goes back to the pitch input of BIA. This causes the BIA to have a trigger which precedes a short series of pitch changes, causing an interesting trailing off melody burst which can be extended or shortened using the built in envelope of the BIA. Then I add some Manis Iteritas (MI) melody form channel 2 of the MD with a similar trigger difference effect using factor 2 output of the NR.
I finally feed the BIA audio into Desmodus Versio for some mad Bat Reverb ;) …
Oh, and, I have Cleo Diaz modulation Manis low pass filter…
More patching fun to come!"

Roland SP-700 | Sample Player Deluxe 1992

video upload by Espen Kraft

"Roland SP-700 sample player from 1992, meant as an expander to the flagship sampler S-770 from 1990 and S-750 from 1991.

Roland wanted the SP-700 to sound better than anything else so they spared no expense and put quality components into every corner of the SP-700 and it sounds incredibly good. Smooth, big and hi-fi.
It was also the first Roland S to be Akai compatible, to read and convert Akai libraries into a Roland format. Doing this in 1992 was too late though. Akai had the sampler market in an iron fist, was considered the de facto standard for sample formats, and as such they reigned supreme consuming anyone getting into samplers in the pro studio world.

Support this channel on Patreon:

I use a Plextor SCSI CD-writer to load in a variety of samples from early 90s Roland sampler libraries for the S-7xx series of samplers.
All the sounds in this video are coming from these CD's or from the Best Service CD you see me load in while I show the SCSI connections.
The music demos and sounds have all been mixed and mastered. See my other videos for my mixing techniques and plugins/outboard I use.

At the end I sight-read and play an 80s classic ballad called 'Nothing's gonna change my love for you', the Glenn Medeiros version. This song was originally recorded by George Benson."

Sequential TAKE 5 // how it sounds in a mix // all synths from this


video upload by Alba Ecstasy

"I was talking to Antonio @ Zeedo Shop and he asked me if it could be possible for a track with only the Sequential TAKE 5.
Challenge accepted!

Well... excepting the small part of drums I inserted for a more dramatic effect (DRUMLAB Native).
And I used the Arturia Filter Mini just because I played awful a nice lead sound 😁.
Having the TAKE 5 only for the weekend put an emotional pressure on me!

And more than that, I only used its factory presets, and just adding a couple of effects and some EQing (in the heat of an impro, I may exaggerate sometimes with some freqs)"

This appears to be the first post to feature the Philip Rees Percussion Sample Player. Some info via mu:zines:

"More than a beatbox, less than a sampler, the Percussion Sample Player appears to be a unique rhythmatist's instrument. Simon Trask looks at the pros and cons of a dedicated drum sampler..."

"THE PSP'S PCM samples are eight-bit companded (giving a 72dB dynamic range, equivalent to a 13-bit linear system), and sampled at 31.25kHz. The five built-in cymbal sounds have a neutral (you could say characterless) quality which allows them to blend in with the variety of percussive sounds found on the various cartridges. The longer cymbal samples both succumb to the lack-of-memory syndrome, though as always a touch of external reverb processing can help out."

"The nine cartridges available as of writing are (with number of samples indicated in brackets): Neutral Kit (7), Tight Kit (9), Analogue Drum Machine (12), Techno Kit (7), Latin Kit (10), Power Kit (8), Metal Kit (8), Snare Collection (8) and Tabla (12). Each cartridge comes in a small plastic box, with a transparent plastic lid which can be clipped securely into place and a piece of foam in the base to help prevent the cartridge from getting knocked about. Also provided in the case is a small fold-out leaflet which includes a list of the samples on the cartridge together with their MIDI trigger notes, a description of each sample, and several example rhythm patterns printed in a grid format. Additionally, each cartridge has a handy diagram printed on its upper face which tells you not only what samples the cartridge contains but also which MIDI notes trigger them."

Rediscovering a Roland JV-1080: Ultimate Pad Synthesizer? | CONFORCE

video upload by Conforce

Also see Roland JV1080 vs XV-5080 - Direct Comparsion by LFOstore

"About: Last year I really discovered that the Roland JV-1080/2080 XV XP synthesizers are inspiring sound design instruments. The JV/XP's are fun and cheap and really the proof that you don't need to buy expensive pro synthesizer equipment. The highly popular 90's module was widely used in many pop music records but it's actually quite useful for esoteric techno and electro. Many contemporary VST plug-ins are based on a similar approach of the classic romplers like the JV's. In this video I give you tips and tricks and insights in how you can re-vitalise your beloved preset player into a synth that you can actually program! I also share my honest thoughts about the synthesizer compared to the Roland Cloud VST. A great thing is that you can now use them combined in a really cool way... Check the video to find this out!

Programming the Roland JV-1080 is a lot of fun, when using both the interface and an editor you can really get inspiring results quickly. The JV's might look like bread and butter synths, in a way they are.. Unless you go beyond pizzicato, whacky piano waveforms. The JV's hold some cool waveforms for modern electronic music and you can also get some expansion cards for them (be aware they can be really crappy), only a few like the Vintage Expansion are worth the money.. Leave a comment if you like this video! Much appreciated"

Everything is controlled via Ableton Live and I also have the Launchpad Mini for small further controls. It's quite challenging to play this way, but it is really fun and allows very unique possibilities, that I will keep exploring in the future."
