Hydrasynth Deluxe Demos by the sun god RA


1. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Blue Lotus RA
This is an attempt to make a "pressure-weighted portamento" patch on the Hydrasynth, heavily inspired by the Expressive E Osmose demo video by Christophe Duquesne [posted here]. I found that the Hydrasynth's Polytouch-keyboard really adds expressiveness to a simple monophonic flute-patch "Blue Pipes RA". Combined with "Blue Mandolin RA" on the lower side of the keyboard, with some key-split crossfade between them, the middle part of the keyboard combines polyphonic mandolin and monophonic flute. Preset M1-025 on The Hydrasynth Deluxe. SHOW LESS
2. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Old Times RA
This is Hydrasynth Deluxe multi preset M1-015, a dual patch. The lower partial is "L'apocalypse RA" from "the sun god RA" patch bank, an attempt to recreate the wonderful string sound that Vangelis got out of his Hammond organ/echoplex/tape echo in his "L'apocalypse des animaux"-era in the beginning of the 1970's. The upper partial is "Waxroll Piano RA".
3. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Seafloor Harp RA
Hydrasynth Deluxe preset M1-010 Seafloor Harp RA, a dual layer of "Southern Seas RA" and "Jomfrubad RA".
4. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Documentarist RA
Hydrasynth Deluxe preset M2-063 Documentarist RA. A dual layer of "1934 Upright RA" and "After Mirage RA".
5. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Electrosplit RA
Split between "Magnetisque II RA" and "E081 Voice Crystal RA"
6. Hydrasynth single patch: Deluxe Piano RA
Inspired by the SOS “synth secrets” articles about synthesizing pianos, I tried to make a “realistic” piano patch on the Hydrasynth. This is single preset “A011 Deluxe Piano RA” on the Hydrasynth Deluxe.
7. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Hydra Orchest RA
8. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Miami Bass RA
M1-016 Miami Bass RA - an attempt to make a split patch of Jupiter-8 bass arpeggio and pad from Jan Hammer's "Miami Vice" soundtrack. Last part is M2-008 Miami Splice RA, pad now on lower half of the keyboard, while upper is reminiscent of the Fairlight-type lead sound in "Crockett's theme".
9. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Drive U Home RA
Preset "M1-045 Drive U Home RA" on the Hydrasynth Deluxe.Bread & butter. A split between bass guitar "Basketbass RA" and analog pad "Pro-5 Carpad RA". The drum machine is a Roland TR-6S hanging on an IKEA "Isberget" laptop support because of the keyboard stand angle.
10. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Johansson RA
A dual split patch with «Utanmyr Bass RA» as the lower part, and «Utanmyr Piano RA» (slightly tweaked preset «Deluxe Piano RA») as the upper part. I was planning to play "Visa from Utanmyra" by Jan Johansson, but discovered I'm no piano player. So instead I made up this little melody, much easier to play.
11. Hydrasynth Deluxe multi patch: Orchestra Hit RA
Trying to see if I could make a Fairlighty sampled orchestra hit on the Hydrasynth Deluxe, I tweaked preset M1-012 Hydra Orchest RA using chord mode, some envelope to pitch and Lo-fi FX.
12. Hydrasynth single patch: Cimbalom RA
This is an attempt to make a "realistic" cimbalom for the Hydrasynth. This is the lower partial of multi patch M2-045.
13. Hydrasynth single patch: Cimbalom RA
This is an attempt to make a "realistic" cimbalom for the Hydrasynth. This is the lower partial of multi patch M2-045.

Sequential Prophet-6 patch: Winter ‘46 RA

video upload by the sun god RA

"Winter ‘46 RA, a melancholy sounding patch on the Prophet-6 module, played via midi from a ASM Hydrasynth Explorer, utilizing its polytouch™️ keyboard."

Akai S900 & VX90 with Hydrasynth Explorer

video upload by the sun god RA

"A 12-bit sample of a Hydrasynth choir and vibes played on the Akai S900, with a simple saw vco pluck on the Akai VX90, and the Hydrasynth Explorer preset 'Ripe Fields RA' mixed in at the end."

Noise Engineering Modular Patch walkthrough and jam - Manis, BIA, Ataraxic and more

video upload by Rochefsky

"This eurorack modular synthesis patch was fun to create and play and a bit harder to describe - but I try to do both (jam and describe) in this video. The whole kit was acquired recently and is 100% Noise Engineering. The only non NoiseE component is the main bass line melody sequence which comes from the Arthur’s Keystep Pro into the Manis.

Heavy Bass, modulated dirty percussion, grainy backup rando melody - this patch is unmistakably Manis Iteritas, Basimilus Iteritas Alter (BIA) and Ataraxic Iteritas - all Noise Engineering modules.

Bass Line: Arturia keystep pro sequencing Manis, and some modulation coming from Pons Asinorum.

Melody: Vox Digitalis random sequence of 8 notes driving Ataraxic Iteritas.

Percussion: Simple clock into Numeric Repetitor with Prime output driving the BIA trigger and factors driving other modulation…

And a bunch of modulation from other modules ;)

I’m digging doing these videos, so if you want anything specific, let me know."

SMMP Drone Synth with Upcycled Pallet Wood Box and Arcade Push Buttons Vintage

via this auction

Update: video here

"Lovely Drone Synth with a vintage look, thanks to the wooden box (made from upcycled pallet wood) and the Arcade Pushbuttons with backlight!

Many sounds to explore, from bleeps to dirty drones, from spacey laser gunshot to cascades of random generated noises!

It features a main oscillator (squarewave), another oscillator that modulates the main one and another knob that adjusts the range (pitch). With pushbuttons and switches you can modify other parameters such as envelops, buffer, glide and more. This particular unit also fetures a built in speaker and amplifier and it works both with batteries (9V) and mains (not included PSU 9V, Centre Positive be careful with this, otherwise you fry it!).

It can be used as a sound device at gigs, for sound design, you can record your own sample pack of sci-fi glitches with it or it could be a lovely present for sci-fi addicts, or even used as a prop...don't miss it!"

Standuino (Bastl) fraAngelico Digital Granular Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Standuino fraAngelico is an 8-bit PWM digital synth, built on the Arduino platform.

It does not use any D/A convertor, but the sound is generated by one digital output pin using Pulse Width Modulation. Resolution of this technique to achieve different voltage levels is 8-bit, but in the true essence the output from the synth is just 1-bit because the output pin does just 1 or 0 which makes distinctive digital character to its sound."

Chase Bliss Mood w/ Moog EP-3 Expression Pedal (and OP-1)

video upload by Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Karl from Patchwerks shares his favorite way to use the Chase Bliss Mood and Moog EP-3 expression pedal with his trusty Teenage Engineering OP-1.

MOOD is a two channel granular micro-looper / delay. Designed to be playful and immediate, it is a study of interaction. MOOD is internally collaborative, allowing audio to freely pass back and forth between its two sides, evolving and transforming over time. Drolo FX is behind the loop channel, a collection of always-listening micro-loopers, and old blood noise endeavors offer us the wet channel, a suite of live spatial effects.

We have three different options for how the channels are internally routed. Run a time-stretched loop through a cloud of delay taps, re-record it and carry on. Overdub, freeze, dissolve, smear. The device’s heart is the clock control, which slows or accelerates both sides simultaneously in harmonized steps. Instantly turn a loop into rolling chirps, or divide a reverb down into atmospheric noise. And naturally, we have full MIDI, dip-switch, and preset implementation.

Order the Chase Bliss Mood here:

The EP-3 Expression Pedal from Moog is a universal expression pedal for keyboards, synths, and pedals that have either an expression or CV input. It has a polarity switch for compatibility with non-Moog products and a scalable output knob for different musical ranges. The pedal itself is designed for smooth operation while being rugged enough for daily use and touring. A 6.5' 1/4" TRS cable is included.

Oberheim ARP Noodle

video upload by Randy Piscione

"Quick noodle with some vintage bits, cell phone video and audio. A bit showy, and a bit rough in places. Volume is low too, and the "mix" is at the whims of my phone mic. Oberheim FVS on bass, ARP Odyssey, Axxe and Little Brother on lead, a bit of Alesis SR-16 on drums. Since my right wrist still has a non-union, doing this is challenging but getting through a minute or so is still possible."

A Cold Forest - live outdoor synthesizer experimental loop jam with SH-101, MC-101, TD-3 and RC-500

video upload by drone-in-the-woods

"Although the sun was sneaking through here and there, and lizards were sunbathing on the logs at the edge of the woods, this was a cold forest session under the dense evergreen canopy. I was fortunate to create and jam out this track in record time, before returning to the top of the hill and the warmth of late summer.

Monome Norns + Grid (Cheat-Codes 2) and Teenage Engineering Op-1

video upload by Luca Longobardi

"Had a nice session today with Cheat-Codes 2 and Op-1.
This is basically the process that brought me to what you hear:
1) Recorded 3 live buffers (A= piano sampled with Op-1, B= synth pad made with Op-1, C= synth arpeggio made with Op-1);
2) Recorded a pad sequence for each buffer;
3) Put each pads in loop mode, chosen 3 to start, pressed Rec;
4) Adding a sequencer with a bass line I am playing live while starting the pad sequences one by one.

I might add a lead voice to this one and basically have a track done :)"

Minimoog - Expo and Lin Glide Comparison...

video upload by noddyspuncture

"Having installed one of my Minimoogs into my R.A.Modular (which has some modules dating back to 1967..! 😲 ) I also added a couple of switches which can switch it between the Modular's 950 keyboard circuit or it's own in-built keyboard circuit. This was just in case, when using it 'live' something occurred which meant I couldn't use the Modular - for example if the Modular's power supply malfunctioned. And with that pairing the glide function comes into play. The Minimoog's internal glide is linear whereas the 950 keyboard's is exponential. It just occurreed to me that I could make a video comparing the two... so here it is."
