Sequential Prophet 6 + Eurorack (O_c - Marbles - Rings)

video upload by lucafrancinimusic

"Blending my small Eurorack system with the warm Prophet 6.

I'm running the Viznutcracker,sweet! app in Ornament & Crime sending the crazy 8bit noises into Rings Audio Input. The noises are constantly changing because a multed "Y" random signal from Marbles modulates the parameters generating the aforementioned sweet noises.

Marbles STEPS knob is set fully CW, so it only outputs one note in various octaves. Rings is tuned so that this one note is the same as the root key of the pads.

While running the modular patch through Valhalla Supermassive reverb it reminded me of those kind of lonely space communications, so I used this inspiration to build some pads around the glitchy signals and noises, using my Prophet 6 which I think it's the quickest and easiest synthesizer to program and it also has a nice warm and creamy tone.

I've then layered a second patch from the Prophet whit this Blade Runner-like lead sound.

I love messing with Eurorack modules but sometimes the outcome cannot find its way out of the case, so I think showing one of the possible workflows to actually turn a patch into a track can be helpful and inspirational.

I hope you liked the track,
See you next time!"

@ 7pm UK (2pm EST)

Chris Meyer

With over 5 decades within the Music Industry, not many are as knowledgable or as experienced as Chris Meyer. He’s worked with Modular Synths since the 70’s and started working for Sequential in the early 80’s and is the one who invented “Vector Synthesis”. He later worked for a variety of Companies, including Roland and was heavily involved with the revisions of the MIDI specification.

Chris later moved into the Film and Video Industry, composing Soundtracks, however this also turned into creating a Motion Graphics Business using Adobe After Effects, where he subsequently went on to writing Books and providing Technical Courses and other learning material.

The Teaching element has stayed with Chris and many will know him from his YouTube Channel and Website “Learning Modular” where he provides training and guides for those who want to delve deeply into Modular Systems, however it is very informative and useful for anyone into Synthesis.

As well as the Teaching, Chris continues to write and has co-authored Books like “Patch & Tweak” amongst others and if you want to hear his Compositions, then check out 'Alias Zone' on Bandcamp.Website -

"This is an early analogue synth that I built from a series of articles in Wireless World magazine. I obviously spent a LOT of time making it....let's see if it still works..... (update coming soon!) Here's a link to the original articles...." (PDF link - pics below if you want to skip)

Note the article appears to be by Tim Orr of Powertran, and a D. W. Thomas. Anyone know who that is? The design reminds me of a Maplin.

LXR-02 tutorial - Part 6: Useful shortcuts

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Part six of a getting started guide for the Erica Synths LXR-02 drum machine. This is with firmware 1.2. This tutorial covers a selection of shortcuts which are sometimes not even indictated on the machine - they're just things you have to know. Some things here, like the Pattern generator, I've covered in detail in other videos, but I thought it worth grouping the best shortcuts together as a reference. And with the Automation shortcut here, this is the "quick and easy" method rather than going into the options in detail. Hope you find it useful.

SoundScaper and BeatCutter

video upload by Igor Vasiliev

"SoundScaper is an experimental sound mini lab for creating unusual soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones, glitches and noises based on circuit bending principles.

BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This app is best for those who would like to experiment with large audio files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples."

Note SoundScaper has been updated to version 1.9.8. Via Motion Soundscape:

"This update improves compatibility with new devices with different aspect ratios and compatibility with new versions of iOS. Also added support for bluetooth midi controllers, the sound engine has been slightly optimized and the description of the app has been updated. Description also available as PDF file.

And this app still works on previous generation devices starting with iOS 9.0 like iPhone 4S / 5 / 6 and iPad 2, iPad Mini / Pro 1st generation!"

Droning with Pasco Scientific

video upload by osixoone sevenone

"A little drone with Pasco Scientific educational equipment, and a Tibetan singing bowl, looped with Axoloti. The mic input is pretty hummy, so i tuned the drone to the hum and made it part of the drone.
The Fourier Synthesizer is fixed at a base frequency off 440 Hz."

"A few weeks ago I saw this Pasco Scientific set on a second hand site, and thought that these would be great for making drone music. It was made for education on waveforms, AM, FM, and Fourier Synthesis, and once belonged to a University. Steve Mann made a great video about the Pasco Fourier Synthesizer [below]. Today i made a little drone video with this set, and looping it with the Axoloti Core. The dual oscillators have sine, saw, square and ramp waveforms, and there is AM, DSB (dual sideband) and FM. OSC 1 is routed to the modulation input for OSC 2. You can also cross modulate them. At 4:00 i patch the sum out OSC 1 modulation. The Fourier Synthesizer is fixed at 440 Hz, the harmonics have individual level and phase controls."

PASCO FOURIER SYNTHESIZER: Understanding Fourier series with one of my favorite things from 1970s

video upload by Steve Mann

"One of my favorite things from my childhood was the PASCO FOURIER SYNTHESIZER which left me with a very deep and fundamental understanding of periodic waveforms and their Fourier series representations.
I was fortunate enough to be able to play on this apparatus back in the early 1970s.
Here I try to capture the ineffable sense of awe and wonder that it left upon me.
Also featured is the Eico460 cathode ray oscilloscope that I've had since childhood, modified by switching over to a transparent CRT so you can see inside it and understand how an oscillosocpe works.

In 1978 I composed a piece of music that contains only a single note (while its various harmonics gently rise and fall): Adagio for PASCO FOURIER SYNTHESIZER and Lock-in Amplifier.
In 2016 we (Splashtones) did a live performance of this piece, accompanied by hydraulophone and clarinet, as the headline act for VRTO 2016.

Tal Sampler - Prophet VS sample pack out now!

"Tal Sampler - Prophet VS The Digital Collection Vol.4 by Espen Kraft

Find the pack here:

64 Sequential Prophet VS Sample Patches for Togu Audio Line (TAL) Sampler. *
The Sequential Prophet VS vector synthesizer, by many hailed as the best hybrid synth ever.
Lush, smooth, gritty, crude, the best of both worlds, the Prophet VS is extremely versatile. I have meticulously sampled all my favorite (and original sounds) from this classic digital vector synth and turned it into a pack for the TAL sampler.

I've multi-sampled 5 or 6 notes for every patch. Some of the samples are very long to take full advantage of the stereo output and dynamic animation of the oscillators, so typical for the Prophet VSs audio engine. All sounds in this pack are recorded from the physical outputs of an original Prophet VS, through SSL Superanalogue preamps for the best audio quality. By me, personally.
Apart from a couple of drum sounds in the audio demo track, the audio demos features only 100% sounds from this pack. Some external reverb has been used on some of the sounds."

ARP-2600, Moog Grandmother live cinematic Tangerine Dream inspired synthwave annotated performance

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"I wanted to do a live synthwave performance with annotations that show what I'm thinking as I create these. Almost everything on my channel is an improvisation, so I'm thinking on both music theory and technical levels at all times. This starts with static arpeggios and utilizes modal shifting to create the chord progressions. I'm using a fairly simple setup of just the Moog Grandmother and the ARP-2600, so that the text can follow the music. The arpeggios are inspired by new Tangerine Dream electronic music. Since I'm a film composer by trade, this came out relatively cinematic and would work in certain movie score settings. I hope this is educational for you as well, in terms of how I put these performances together."

Waldorf Blofeld - "Old but gold" - 10 minutes on it (No talking demo - Part 1)

video upload by Andrea Di Lorenzo - Music Lab

"Hi, everyone!

Here's to you my '10 minutes no talking demo' of the amazing Waldorf Blofeld.

This synth features many types of synthesis like virtual analog subtractive, FM, wavetable and samples and is capable of such a wide range of deep, complex and powerful sounds!

Warm, organic, analog, ethereal, edgy, futuristic or vintage sounds...the Blofeld can perform well in many genres. And its synthesis system is based upon the revolutionary PPG Wave synthesisers of the early 80s.

A complex technology that fits into a slim and elegant device for a little synthesizer machine with a big and evil sound.

No external effects or outboard processing here. What you listen is what you get!"
