LXR-02 tutorial - Part 8: Euclidean triggers

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Part eight of a guide for the Erica Synths LXR-02 drum machine. This is with firmware 1.2. In some ways this is less of a tutorial and more of a fun exploration with the LXR-02 paired with a DB-01 Bassline and then a Vermona PerFourMer MkII with a Zen delay. The Euclidean triigers come from the LXR-02's pattern generator. In the first example one channel is dedicated to running the DB-01. The interesting sude effect of the triggering is that it adds sustain to the DB-01 sound. This means switching it on and off gives a very different quality to the sound. In the second example four channels of the LXR-02 trigger four different sounds on the Vermona PerFourMer. The fun comes from switching between channels on the LXR-02 to create rythmic variations. The Zen delay gives some extra complexity and dirt on top.

PolyMono Ableton Instrument Pack Jam 2, Live instruments using the MonoPoly analog synthesizer

video upload by Expanding Sound

"Get the pack here

(This pack is compatible with Ableton 10 standard and above.)
This is my second Jam using the PolyMono Ableton instrument pack. I was having a lot of fun making songs with it
So i figured why not? This one is more Pad oriented. I hope you enjoy it!
More info on the PolyMono Mega Pack-
The Expanding Sound PolyMono pack is built using the MonoPoly synthesizer.... clever name, right? Something that was instantly noticeable to me was the larger than life quality some patches achieve here in Ableton. Since you are using four oscillators in unison mode, sampled instruments can use more voices, and have the ability to sound huge. Each instrument is a polysynth, so you're hearing up to 40 Oscillators at once! Giant atmosphere pads and strong present leads are available, as well as bass presets that really cut into a mix. This pack contains 22 multi sampled presets using over 100 samples. I hope you enjoy! I feel like some of these sounds are going to find their way into my compositions very soon."

Waldorf STVC String Synthesizer/Vocoder

"This string synthesizer actually covers a wide array of other sounds, from vintage screaming lead sound and bouncing baselines to brass and poly synth patches... it really could be your top keyboard in a 2 keyboard stack if you're looking for a vintage analog sound - very surprising how much sonic territory this can handle; and the effects are great, very washy and authentic! You can also program and save your own patches!"

No more time ( from CF5 set )

video upload by Avrilcadabra

"A chiptune track of mine I played at clownfest 5.

I had made this pattern some years ago and I eventually made it to a full track which I played on my CF5 set. It is made entirely of commodore 64 samples and single cycle waveforms.

I had since remade this on the M8 but using it's synth engines and it's good but I prefer the c64 samples used here.

I'll be doing another set for CF7 this December

Prophet X Showcase with Nicholas Semrad: Double X

video upload by Sequential

"Our friend Nicholas Semrad composed a few short pieces using only the Prophet X:

'Double X' uses both the 1985 Passionate ‘Muted’ and ‘Main’ Pianos mixed together, along with the ‘Acoustic Long’ guitar sample - creating a patch that could loop in a beautiful way, but also be "playable" via the sliders, wheels, and aftertouch. Using aftertouch to decimate it, and the mod wheel to fully-wet the mix of the reverb effect, slider one changes the size of the loop for a longer, more drawn out loop, and slider two raises the gain of the distortion effect.

'The guitar sound aims for the Bibio-esque rootsy lo-fi guitar sound. I stacked two of the exact same ‘Acoustic Long’ guitar sounds together (with a high pass filter effect on both) so that I could get extra effects. One stack has a distortion to warm up the sound a bit, and the other has a little bit of reverb.'

"I've been watching videos on this beauty of a synthesizer for some months and finally decided to pull the trigger on buying it.

The clip is the result of the first night of fiddling with a simple arpeggio. Barely scratched the surface of it's capabilities, but I can say I'm already in love with the mod matrix and LFO capabilities. The interface to me feels very natural. Didn't even look at the manual yet (but I should!). Looking forward to exploring this beast further!

Recorded in Ableton Live 10. Besides some compression and limiting, no effects were added in Ableton. Drums come from the Moog DFAM."

Designing one/off Eurorack modules for TOOL w/ Peter Grenader of Plan b

video upload by Peter Grenader

"The Devil is in the details..

I think people who haven't yet done a lot of PCB/faceplate design and integration will appreciate this.

As some of you know, i was the designer of and now the lion tamer for the Euro system used by Tool live (Chocolate Chip Drip). I had to make them a single channel attenuator with very little time left b4 they leave on their new tour and didn't have a lot of free HP in which to do it.

This video goes through the process to make sure things align perfectly when there is no time for rev. 2

New Tiptop Audio WAYOUT8 Eurorack Patchbay

via Tiptop Audio

"WAYOUT8 is a patchbay module for Eurorack systems used to group your DAW inputs and outputs, or manage signals going from one case to another. Wayout8 is grounded, meaning that even if nothing is plugged into the inputs your outputs are still grounded and will not pick up noise. The module is made so it can be mounted two ways, with outputs on the left or right, whichever is the most ergonomic placement in your case. All eight channels are passive so they do not modify your signals and can be used for audio and CV Gate. No power is required."

New to PolyBrute 2.0

New EQ & Ensemble Effects
Shape the final stage of your patch with one of 7 EQ shapes in a new 4th FX slot, and expand & enrich PolyBrute’s stereo field with a 3-delay Ensemble effect inspired by vintage studio gear.

Synth Accuracy
Inject further degrees of imperfection and randomness to parameters beyond pitch; adjust the accuracy of controls like OSC pulse width, filter settings, unquantized LFO rate and more for a humanized feel.

Chord Mode
PolyBrute now incorporates our instant-access Chord mode for playing chords with a single note on the keyboard. Simply hold ‘Polyphony’ and play up to 6 notes to set your chord voicing.

Duophonic Aftertouch
PolyBrute’s aftertouch expressivity can now be tailored to suit your performance style. Configure Aftertouch to only apply to the last note or group of notes you press, leaving previously held notes unchanged.

LFO 3 Curve Enhancements
Set PolyBrute’s third LFO curve to respond differently for further modulation control within your patch. Rise or fall, exponential or logarithmic, the shape of this LFO is entirely yours to mold.

Real-time Display Feedback
PolyBrute’s screen now displays parameter names and values in real-time, so you can focus better on your patch and stay on top of every little sonic tweak.

Imagine using 6 analog voices to craft a sound that's powerful, raw, and entirely yours. Imagine a sound existing in two states simultaneously in a single preset, with seamless morphing between them. Imagine multi-axis performance controls offering next-generation musical expression. Imagine instant and limitless modulation at your fingertips. Imagine a polysynth made by musicians, for musicians."

KORG Odds - playing with NTS -1

"Odds is an oscillator plugin with stochastic control synthesis, designed and developed by Sinevibes. Works with KORG prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1 synthesizers. Product page:"

"Odds is a stochastic control synthesis plugin for KORG prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1. It starts with a hybrid engine that features dual oscillators with a wide variety of sources – including virtual analog, FM, phase distortion, waveshaping, ring modulation, cross modulation, and lo-fi – all of them running at double the system sample rate for highest possible quality. Together with a state-variable filter, Odds offers a total of 80 different configurations, covering a huge spectrum of sounds. But the “stochastic control” part is what takes this plugin to an entirely new level: for every note played, Odds has variable trigger probability, selectable pitch transpose randomization patterns, plus further independent randomization of up to 4 additional synth engine parameters. These advanced features make it possible to create extremely complex, never-repeating melodic and tonal variations even out of the most basic note sequences. Add to this a highly flexible modulation generator with a multitude of envelope and LFO shapes – and, right within your existing device, you have the synthesis power and sophistication that can rival a small modular system.


Bespoke dual-oscillator engine with multiple sound source types: virtual analog, FM, phase distortion, waveshaping, ring modulation, cross modulation, bit reduction, as well as hybrid (80 variations in total)
Adjustable note trigger probability
Individual randomization of pitch transposition, sound generator tone, modulation depth/speed, output level
Waveform generators run at 96 kHz sample rate with an anti-aliasing filter for superior quality
Built-in -12 dB/octave multi-mode state variable filter
Flexible modulation generator with 24 modes: exponential envelopes, linear envelopes, multi-waveform LFO (triangle, saw, square, pulse, trapezoid, peak), sample & hold, and random triangle
Built-in lag filters for noise-free, ultra-smooth parameter adjustment and modulation

Modor DR-2 Drum Machine ( drums improvisation no talking )

video upload by Dziam Bass

"In this movie is some fun from hands with Modor DR-2 Drum machine.
small drums improvisation but of course this is incredible machine for programming up to 128 step .

First of all: although it's digital, the DR-2 is not about sampling. It's a drum synthesizer, like a classic analog drum machine, but it uses digital sound synthesis algorithms instead of analog circuitry. There are no samples in the DR-2, and there's no sample memory.

Just like the Modor NF-1, the DR-2 is not build to recreate the classics of the past. The DR-2 uses digital sound synthesis to innovate drum sounds and rhythms. Many sounds will be recognizable. It is possible to make classic sounding bass drums, snares and rimshots. It's not difficult to program classic floorfillers with the DR-2. But with 12 synthesis parameters per drum, you'll easily find yourself creating your own individual sound."

SYNTHBOOKS #05 - BJOOKS Push Turn Move - Kim Bjorn | SOUNDMIT

Googlish translation further below:

"Ciao a tutti e bentornati o benvenuti ai video del Soundmit, vi ricordo che potrete vedere i precedenti video sul nostro canale all’indirizzo e se vi piacciono, iscrivetevi e seguiteci anche sui nostri canali social all’indirizzo

Riprendiamo le nostre pillole letterarie con una serie nella serie, ci occuperemo infatti di una serie di 5 libri relativamente nuovi, scritti da Kim Bjorn, designer, DJ e scrittore Danese che abbiamo avuto il piacere di ospitare diverse volte al nostro Soundmit.

Andiamo in ordine cronologico parlando del libro che ha dato il via alla serie ovvero, PUSH TURN MOVE!

Come vedete, qui con me ne ho due copie, in realtà sono due edizioni differenti. La seconda, leggermente più sottile ma con eguale numero di pagine, è stata rivista recentemente e riallineata all’impostazione grafica dei volumi usciti successivamente.

Sono anche stati rivisti in parte i contenuti, infatti non troveremo alcune interviste e alcune considerazioni su prodotti di aziende che non esistono più o che hanno sospeso le attività, in favore di nuovi e più aggiornati contenuti.

Door #9: Kling, Glöckchen, klingelingeling (Ring, Little Bell) - Synthmas '21

video upload by Synthfluencer

"Ho-Ho-Ho! This is Synthmas '21, the virtual calendar presenting a Christmas carol played by synthesizers - every day from 1st to 24th of December.

The song:
Together with the melody presumably originating from an traditional german folk song, the carol was published first in 1862. The text relates to the "Christkind" - a German Christmas variant of Baby Jesus often characterized as a girl - wishes to let into the homes bringing gifts in return.

The gear:
Bell-like sounds always have been somewhat problematic to generate by subtractive synthesis as most analog synthesizers utilize. FM, LA and wavetable synthesis do a much better job. So the three tracks of this song are played by the Yamaha MODX (acting as a DX-Synthesizer), Waldorf Blofeld for wavetable sound and Roland JV-1010 to add LA-synthesis.
