Quick Tips : Self Resonating Filter Tricks for Complex Oscillator Sounds

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"This week's Quick Tip dives into using filters as complex oscillator voices!⁠ ⁠

No oscillators required!, Instead we use a dual self oscillating filter, feeding one sine wave into the bi-polar frequency input of the other!

The result is a complex ⁠

Cherry Audio Polymode VST From Lush to Extreme Moog Polymoog Synthesizer Rik Marston

video upload by Rik Marston Official

"As a Gary Numan fan this VST is a MUST HAVE!
This software synth is worth every cent & has a unique personality!
I never got to own a real Moog Polymoog so this really is fun to use and tweak around.
This is a GREAT exploration synth & learning tool for synthesis in general.
It's a super string synthesizer / polysynth! Awesome!
It really works fantastic for my Ambient / New Age / Electronic music!
My NEW Ambient Electronic album "Into The Earth" coming December 2021!

Its always great to get up on stage a re-perform live (no laptop) the songs which I have previously recorded and released. It’s quite thrilling, everything that happens on stage is a result of me interacting with my bespoke live modular synth setup.

Starr Labs ZTAR Mini-ZS

via this auction

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"Used Starr Labs ZTAR Mini-ZS. Tested and in great working condition. Includes padded gig bag, manual, and power adapter.

From Starr Labs:

'The Mini-Z is only 24” long and offers a comfortable playing position for two-handed tapping, whether sitting or standing. Rather than just an ordinary tapping instrument, this might be considered the first truly optimized keyboard for guitarists. The Ztar “Poly” mode allows playing more than one-note-per-string which allows piano-style cluster voicings, impossible guitar chords, and the freedom of two-hands tapping without being limited to just six notes. Play 100 notes or more together, it you can reach them! By putting the fingerboard directly in front of the player’s body, both hands have perfect access to the neck without stretching or reaching at an awkward angle. It’s most apparent when sitting back in an easy chair, a normally difficult position for guitar-playing, especially two-hand tapping. Even a Stick is a little cumbersome in this position and usually requires a belt-hook. This Mini-Z is for tapping only however the full list of Options is available for adding on.

Adding StringTriggers creates the Mini-ZS model or Drum/Expression Pads with Rubber Trigger Bars for the Mini-ZX model. These can be combined to create the Mini-ZXS!'"

Sequential OB-6 Tutorial Lesson 6: Cross Modulation

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a tutorial series for anyone who wants to learn how to do their own sound design using the Sequential Circuits (former Dave Smith Instruments) OB-6 synthesizer. The goal is to break this subject down into understandable and digestible bits of information that you can apply to your own electronic music. I am primarily a media or film composer, so we will learn ambient, techno, and EDM style sound design using the synth.
This sixth video shows the various possibilities of cross modulation with the OB-6. Please leave a comment with any questions or requests and a like if this was helpful."

ALM TV Busy Visits.. FAUZIA EP003

video upload by ALM TV

"ALM Busy Circuits presents 'BUSY VISITS..' a video series where we delve into the creative spaces and creative practises of some of our favourite artists.

In this episode we visit the London based studio of DJ and artist FAUZIA.

FAUZIA first broke through as a DJ. Inspired by the interwoven legacies of fast music from either side of the Atlantic, her monthly NTS show sees her blend together the best of footwork, jungle and everything in between — with the likes of Mall Grab, Kode9, DJ Taye, Om Unit and Ikonika stopping in for guest spots.

The start of 2020 saw FAUZIA start to showcase her own original music for the first time, first with a celebrated production mix for DISCWOMAN, and then with a contribution to the flagship 10th edition in HAUS of ALTR’s various artists series — picking up glowing press from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Crack and more in the process."

"Syntaur's Sam Mims takes the iconic Solina String Ensemble out for a test drive. (This is a revised version of our original Solina video, where several sharp-eared listeners pointed out that the chorus effect wasn't quite right. They were correct! The LFO circuit in the original version was not working correctly. Now, here it is in its full glory.)"
