Demedash Effects T-60 Analog Modulator [Synth Demo]

video upload by Sound Isles

"A musical modulation machine. A non-talking synth demo exploring the features, controls and sounds of the T-60 Analog Modulator.

Using the Prophet 6, Arturia Microfreak and Roland Alpha Juno II to explore an innovative and fresh take on a classic analog BBD device with a pure analog signal path, and digital LFO."

Now available on Demedash Effects Reverb Shop

"Instantly overlay a worn-out layer of stretched tape to your playing. Let it wander. Let the years in the attic speak for themselves. Transcend time, playing directly through that decades-old tape. Get lost in the lush nostalgia. Crinkles, wear and instability add character.

The T-60 combines the gorgeous sound of a classic analog BBD device with the as-of-yet unseen possibilities granted by generating modulating waveforms via digital means.

A fully analog signal path means that your signal is never digitized - all effects are applied via analog means. Companding & careful filtering ensure that the noise floor is kept low without making the effect sound overly dark or muffled. Of course, Chorus, Vibrato & Flange are all available, but those are just the start of it.

The digital brain buried deep inside of the T-60 lets you do some truly wonderful things. 2 LFOs always run simultaneously - a standard one and a random one.

Random lets you blend the two together in any way you'd like. Fully random modulation is where you'll find that perfect tape warble.

Lag lets you control the delay time - the offset between dry and wet. Longer lag = wider modulation, shorter lag = more comb filtering.

Regen allows you to feed the wet signal back on itself, boosting resonant frequencies and giving rise to some great flanging at low lag times.

EQ rolls off bass when turned up, and rolls of treble when turned down. Hold down the 'Eng/Alt' footswitch and tap the 'Tap/Ramp' one to toggle the EQ. You can have it set to only apply to the wet signal, or to apply to wet and dry for much more dramatic effect.

Mix goes from fully dry to fully wet, for truly instant lofi.

Chop presents a whole new palette of options, allowing you to reduce the sampling rate of the standard lfo, or decrease the smoothness of the random lfo. There are a whole host of fun possibilities and rhythmic sounds in this one knob alone. See final 2 photos for more details.

You can of course tap in a tempo, and select between 4 different tap divisions.

Hold down the tap footswitch and you can ramp either Rate or Chop. You can control the ramp rate, and select between two ramping mode.

There is a lot packed in to this little box, and as much of it as possible is labelled on the pedal itself - so you won't need to try to remember secondary or tertiary functions."

"Tested in perfect working condition, includes original box, power supply and quickstart guide.

The GR-1 is a granular hardware synthesizer. Creating textures, characteristic sounds, drones, soundscapes, pads has never been easier. When you are working on a unique sound, it’s always nice to have hands-on controls to easily dial in the sweet-spots. The possibility to quickly adjust any parameter of your sound is necessary to adapt to the workflow of any user.

Darkenings | DSI Prophet 12 ambient improvisation

video upload by MIDERA

"Hardly have time to do anything these days.My PC ended up messed up for weeks - some DRAM_LED lit up, couldn’t get into BIOS. Thought it was bad RAM. But then eventually concluded my motherboard was the problem. About to spend $2000 on rebuilding my PC with the best stuff out there. Turns out, some USB device was the problem. Unplugged it and everything was smooth.That’s good, cuz my car is in the shop and I just learned it’ll cost $2000 to fix it. Isn’t there a song by Live, about an old mother dying and a woman gives birth? I feel like that’s a bit like what happened here. Ok, maybe not.Anyway, I also decided to get “nice” cinematic shots of my P12. That was fun.Used Eventide Blackhole VST"

Walfdorf M vs IRIDIUM // The Definitive Comparison

video upload by Starsky Carr

"Looking at the sonic characteristics rather than every function here. But some worthy of note that I've not included here are the envelopes, LFOs and modulation.

The M is more flexible than the 3 LFOs and 4 envelopes may have you believe. Everything is so flexible you essentially have 5 LFOs and 5 envelopes ... so watch this in conjunction with my M walkthrough to get a full rundown of all the functions. Iridium is more flexible with 6 LFOs plus complex modulator and I think 6 envelopes... but its closer than you might think.. it's so hard to demo all that on a video without bringing on a severe dose of OCD... so I stuck to the sound quality instead (which you can't read about, and I've not demo'd previously).

If you're having difficulty with the decision then hopefully this'll be a little help."

Hydrasynth Explorer “Unweather RA” + AKAI S612 “Ice RA”

video upload by the sun god RA

"Hydrasynth Explorer preset A078 layered with AKAI S612 sample of several overdubbed “ice-y” sounds from the Hydrasynth, ping-pong looped."

Hydrasynth Explorer “Ripe Fields RA” + AKAI S612 “Vibe & Vox RA” sample.

video upload by the sun god RA

"Hydrasynth Explorer preset D125 “Ripe Fields RA” layered with AKAI S612 sample “Vibe & Vox RA”. This sample is essentially a S612 factory disk vibraphone sample, overdubbed with a choir sound from the Hydradynth using S612’s wonderful real-time overdub function, and then “manual splice” and “alternating” loop.

The Hydrasynth is a perfect partner for old lo-fi samplers."

What is the Artiphon Orba?

Sequential Circuits Pro One

via this auction

"This particular Pro One has been fully serviced and everything is working as it should. On top of that, it's also been upgraded with the Techsmechs Fatar keyboard -- which seriously changes this thing into something extremely playable and musical. Really: once you've tried the Fatar keys on a Pro One you'll never want to go back to the j-wire version.

Somewhere along the road and over the years an owner added the buttons and switches you see above the mod wheels -- they aren't connected to anything, though. I looked pretty closely at the circuit board and as far as I can tell it doesn't seem like they were *ever* soldered to anything. Kind of fun to flick them back and forth, but that's about all they do. They're solidly installed, and don't negatively impact the synth -- just add a little flair and uniqueness to this particular instrument."

🎸 In this instrumental series I'm playing some classics of Rock/Pop music history from the 60s and 70s, using my Vermona Perfourmer Mk2 Synthesizer, Nord Drum 3P, Novation Launchkey Mini Mk3 and KMI Softstep 2 together with Ableton Live.

For mixing I just used some gentle EQ and Compression (mostly FabFilter) and also some Soundtoys effects (Decapitator and Devil Loc for Saturation/Parallel Compression), the Arturia Plate Reverb and also Eventide Blackhole."

Seashore ( Roland Sound Canvas SC-88VL )

video upload by Avrilcadabra

"I made this track in the spirit of Streets of Rage using the SC-88VL

This is all sounds from the Roland SC88VL which is being sequenced by the Dirtywave M8.

Had been intrigued by these things and seen one cheap so I grabbed it and really enjoying it. 32 channels, tonnes of cheesy sounds and listening to midi files on it or even dos gaming is a delight."
