Improvisation - Count to 5, 0-Coast, Tape & Microsound machine

video upload by junklight

"Should you be one of the rare people who listens for more than a few seconds - the improvisation is in two parts with a small gap in-between

I've wanted a Montréal Assembly Count to 5 for ages. One came up at just the right time on Reverb recently and here we are. The 0-Coast seems to have taken over duties from my DPO on lead

The strings in the Morphagene are from Spitfire Tundra which I don't think I've ever used for anything much like media composition but I have had tremendous value from!"

Buchla 296r Transfer Study

video upload by Todd Barton

"Headphones to hear the bass! A little study in the different Transfer Modes of the Buchla 296r Spectral Processor. A different pitch sequence from the 245 to the Principal and Mod Oscs of the 259r into the 296r then through the 292 Lo Pass Gate. I love the variety of sounds/timbres from such a simple patch. Enjoy!"

DRONE MUSIC // Gotharman's PolySpaze mkII + Linnstrument #TTNM


"Here's a little hotel room drone music jam with Gotharman's PolySpaze mkII digital-analog poly-synth. I recorded three takes, each with a different PolySpaze synthesizer preset I made. Everything is controlled with the Roger Linn Linnstrument 128 MIDI keyboard. Mastering and Audio Damage EOS2 reverb effect done in Cubasis 3 for iPad.

Sequential Prophet 5/10 - try to simulate an High Pass Filter without an HPF

video upload by Default Corporation

"Hi, today a tutorial for simulate the effect of an high pass filter on the Prophet 10 that have not an high pass filter.
Generally used to make sound thin to fat.
There are a lot of synths without a HPF, the idea is to use envelope to modulate the square wave of the oscillator. I think Prophets were extremely advanced for the times.

Hope you like it. Thanks for watch."

Sequential Prophet-6 Sound Pack - All FM sounds

video upload by Shahruz Moshtael

"Sound pack of 50 patches with sequences for the excellent Sequential Prophet-6 analog synthesizer. All of these patches use Oscillator 2 as an audio rate modulation source via the Poly Mod section. FM on this synth is a big part of what makes it exciting for me and I hope these patches help you see it in a fresh way.

Sounds load into slots 200-249 as default. Everything heard here is totally dry, with no eq or compression. Just the sequences with the occasional use of aftertouch or tweaking the filter cutoff.

Note these patches use the latest firmware with the 'Vintage Knob' functionality.


Lower West Side Studio M401 Multimode Filter Resonator

"A few seconds of playing with our M401 Multimode Filter Resonator during calibration

Note they are currently having a Cyber Monday sale that ends tonight.

"The ARP 2500 was made famous for sounds it created with its 1047 Voltage Controlled Filter. You can now add that rich, incredible sound to your MU modular synthesizer with the M401 Multimode Filter Resonator from Lower West Side Studio.

The M401 Multimode Filter Resonator is the Lower West Side Studio adaptation of the ARP 1047 filter. The 1047 filter is what gave the ARP 2500 its legendary sound. The M401 Multimode Filter Resonator features;

Simultaneous filter outputs including LowPass, Highpass, Bandpass and a Variable Frequency output The Bandpass output has a gentle 6 decibels/octave slope on either side of its voltage-controllable “corner” frequency, making it ideal for replicating acoustic resonators. At the other extreme, it can be set to a very high “Q” or feedback, allowing only a very narrow band of frequencies to get through.

The M401 can act as a percussion module with a dedicated input for a gate or trigger signals to “ring” its filter with adjustable decay.

The M401 also offers features not available on the original ARP VCF including adaptive AGC input that reacts to input amplitude and settings and adaptive TRIG input that guarantees a full trigger pulse at all frequency settings"

Here is an interview with Dakota Melin, the designer of the M401 Multimode Filter Resonator:

Nights of '82 by United Simesky Institutes

Nights of '82 is a new release from supporting member, United Simesky Institutes. You can find five promo codes below.

"Coming a few good years after the first album, 'Nights of '82' is a retro love letter, a stream of musical conscience inspired by distant memories of the atmosphere of metro trips and forgotten '80's and 90's B movies ("Spacetime Metro Tunnel", 'Melancholic Mullets'), Western and Eastern technology shows ('Optomimetic', 'Networks in the East') and tracker music aesthetics ('Sim 1').

'Instantly groovy and undeniably catchy', ' some of these songs are the most compelling instrumentals we’ve heard in a while.'

We Write About Music

Composed, played and produced by Simesky.
Strings on tracks 2 and 10 by Budapest Scoring Orchestra.
Synths and drum machine samples on track 3 from The Museum of Soviet Synthesizers website.

Fun fact: the Arturia Matrix V had a huge role in the instrumentation, its poly and FX sounds functioning as signature hooks across songs. Hardware synths include the Korg Monologue and the Yamaha SY-85.

As a bonus for Matrixsynth readers, here are 5 code which can be redeemed at :
