Live Old School ACID HOUSE - We Like it NASTY

video upload by The Galaxy Electric

"Sometimes we like it nasty. What can we say? This is a filter swept groove made up of acidic electronics and buchla filters. That's the lowpass filter from the 292R. The Behringer (Kenneth) TD-3 is pulling off the TB303 pretty well, we must say. Ignore the antics from Augustus, or maybe not! Haha. The Behringer RD-6 is offering the drums. Improvised and recorded to 1/4" Reel to Reel tape with love." Studio - 44 Studio System With Garage and Klee Sequencer

Paleo Hebrew (Experimental Music Video)

video upload by CatSynth TV

"An experimental music video based on the characters of the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet. This alphabet is nearly identical to Phoenician, and is believed to have been used by the ancient Israelites from around 1000-500 BCE after which Aramaic became more prominent, ultimately leading to modern Hebrew script. This is a one-to-one letter correspondence between Paleo-Hebrew and modern Hebrew scripts.

The characters of the alphabet are processed using Max/MSP/Jitter and are triggered via MIDI from the same sequences used for the drums. The 'melodic' sound uses a 22edo tuning, representing the 22 letters of the alphabet.

instruments used:
Yamaha RX5
Kilpatrick CARBON Sequencer
Arturia Synclavier V
Arturia CMI V
Arturia DELAY 201

Boss RE-202 Space Echo walkthrough on synth

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Lots of knobs, lots of modes, lots of inputs and outputs, no mystery functions. There's plenty to like about the RE-202 Space Echo. The fact that it's designed as a "faithful recreation" of the old tape echo machine is largely irrelevant. What's important is whether it's a good delay that's fun to use and delivers what you need. What is somewhat strange is that for something called a "space echo" it doesn't do big whooshy space ambience. What it does deliver is sold, interesting pattern delays. For me its only failing is the lack of any stereo panning. But otherwise an excellent, solid machine that a lot of fun to twiddle. It's closest competitor imo is the Erica Synths Zen Delay.

"Designed and developed in partnership with Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers, West Pest is a powerful monophonic full voice, integrating imaginative sound-shaping tools with traditionally “west coast” concepts.
Test the pest!

West Pest’s unique sound has been influenced by Pittsburgh’s acclaimed Voltage Research Lab synthesizer.

The Pittsburgh-designed core oscillator technology has matured through the development of their SV-1 and later with Voltage Research Laboratory. This iteration’s waveforms have been optimized to be run through West Pest’s wavefolder.

Wave folding/shaping is integral to West Pest’s foundation. Wavefolding amplifies incoming waveforms. Rather than clipping or distorting, the wavefolder circuit folds the waveforms back onto themselves, creating upwards of six folds to add vast harmonic complexity and depth.

West Pest’s snappy, responsive articulation is accomplished by the “Dynamics Controller,” Pittsburgh Modular’s original invention. This unique concept is designed to behave like a traditional filter, a VCA, and an envelope generator, all at once. Upon note trigger, the filter opens fully and rapidly, producing a sharp, percussive attack. At release, the Dynamics Controller adds a ringing, resonant decay, resulting in a rounder, more musical sound. The Dynamics Controller is the product of years of research by Pittsburgh’s founder Richard Nicol, and Chief of R&D Michael Johnsen. Inspired by the developments of West Coast synthesis pioneer Don Buchla, Pittsburgh Modular has modernized and evolved these concepts, taking them into new realms, adding wider range, consistency, stability, and resonance control, as well as an infinitely variable, ringing decay.

Going beyond these analog sound-sculpting tools, West Pest also includes a deep new digital multi-mod /multi-function tool concept to add more flavor to the Pest’s production. The multi-mod lets users select between additional clock synced LFO, decay envelope, MIDI-controlled modulation, and random voltage generator modes.

West Pest’s compositional and performance capabilities are as robust as its ferocious sonic engine. West Pest can be controlled via MIDI, control voltage (CV/Gate), and its function keys, which double as a keyboard controller. Also included is an integrated sequencer & arpeggiator that can also be controlled via MIDI and is externally clockable.

A semi-modular synthesizer, West Pest has basically 8 different patchable modules (Oscillator, wave contour, dynamics controller, LFO, multi-mod tool, MIDI to CV converter, step sequencer, and button keyboard) with a whopping 18 Eurorack compatible patch points to plug into itself and your other gear. As a starting point, West Pest comes intuitively patched internally to create a bold and flexible full synth voice. Using the patch points enables users to reroute internal signal flow, as well as use with external eurorack format modules and synthesizers. To promote experimentation, Cre8audio has included a set of premium Nazca Noodles patch cables.

Com Truise: The Crumar Bit One in 'Ultrafiche of You'

video upload by Soundfly

Note: MATRIXSYNTH readers can use the MATRIXSYNTH20 code for 20% off Soundfly courses.

"Watch producer Seth Haley, aka Com Truise, break down the inspiration and production behind his 2019 hit 'Ultrafiche of You.' Keep learning in his full-length course, exclusively available on Soundfly at

About the Video:

In 'Ultrafiche of You,' Com Truise took inspiration from an Italian polyphonic analog synth, the Crumar Bit One. He used the Crumar for almost every part of the song — including the main melody, counter melodies, and as samples — adding effects, tweaking the patch, and chopping and reversing sounds to get as much variation as he could from it. The result is a deep exploration and meditation on a single instrument and sound source.

Here, Com Truise opens up the track in Ableton Live and plays each section of the song to show how he processed the sounds and used the synth to create the song's "flowing atmosphere."

About the Course:

Combining a nostalgic reverence for ‘80s drum machines and production techniques with a futuristic sensibility, Com Truise has been building intricate musical worlds that are hypermodern and yet emotionally familiar for over a decade.

In this course, you’ll discover how Com Truise produces music that is both textural and driving, awash in retro drum sounds and thick clouds of synthesizers. You’ll follow along as he creates a brand new track from scratch, and opens up the sessions to some of his most popular songs, giving you a unique look at how he approaches synthesis, drum machine programming, production, gear, and more.

Lower West Side Studio Drone Day 22 Extended Mix

video upload by

"This is the Extended Mix to the Drone Day 2022 drone produced here at Lower West Side Studio. [short version w/ gear here]

The backbone of the drone is all done on our modular synthesizer. Additional portions were added with a Prophet '08, Yamaha Motif XF, Yamaha CS-5, ESI-2000, Nord Rack 2 and Waldorf Blofeld and Streichfett.

While these additions are not actual 'drones' they were inspired on the spot and added as I felt like playing them.

I hope this drone brings you peace.

How to use Gated Slew with a Sequencer - Gate signals explained + Sample Hold & Slew module tips

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Slew allows you to slide/glide between notes in a sequence, like those famous TB-303 Acid House tracks and a whole range of other electronic music styles, but if it's not built into your synthesizer it might be confusing how to achieve it, particularly as there are so many sequencer options available, many of which function differently from each other. This video shows how 3 popular desktop step-sequencers can work with the Sample Hold & Slew module - the Doepfer Dark Time, Korg SQ-1, which are both akin to vintage analogue step sequencers, and the Arturia Beatstep, which functions more like a Roland SH-101. I used just one MiniMod VCO going into the Sonic XV Diode Ladder Filter, since the TB-303 also has a diode ladder VCF, and here I've used it in just 6dB mode for extra squelch! However, I'm also using the Sonic XV's built-in wave folder to significantly change the timbre of the incoming triangle wave. The Sample Hold & Slew can function as a separate gated slew module, with selection of up or down slew only, whilst the sample & hold part of it can be used independently, serving as 2 individual modules in 1. Or both functions can be combined, so that random voltages can slide from one to the next, even at very slow speeds, which is great for modulating gradually evolving drone sounds. The Colour and Restrict controls can be used to fine-tune a more desirable range of random frequencies from the noise source. An external clock can be used to sync the random voltages with other modules, sequencers or keyboard gates.

Additionally, audio can be passed through it to use as a noise source for the sample & hold or track & hold. At high clock speeds this feature can be used a very lo-fi bit-crusher, and slowing the rate down will gradually mangle the audio further, eventually reducing it to random beeps!

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for more 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides detailing a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, and each containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Performance: Destination Not Berlin - All-analogue Melodic Set using AJH Synth Eurorack Modular rig.

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"This live melodic modular set by 'tomorrow the cure' was originally intended for Superbooth 22 in Berlin, but had to be cancelled due to hearing problems. Since the set was ready to go I thought I'd record it to share with you as another example of what a Mini Mod system can do, and what it can sound like. If this appeals to people there'll be more performance videos in the future, showing AJH Synth modules being used as they're intended - to make music. Hopefully these videos will be an inspiration to people, and compliment the 'User guides' and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will continue to serve as more practical, or instructional videos.

I've dedicated this performance to Klaus Schulze, who passed away recently. His approach to making music and the sounds he created were a great influence of mine personally. Since then Vangelis has also passed. Fortunately we will always have the gift of their music, both to listen to, and be inspired by.

Performance breakdown:
The synth rig used is based around two voices from just 3 VCO's, 1 of which is paired with a Ring SM, which serves as a waveform mixer, and provides a -1 sub-octave. This then feeds the Gemini 2412 filter, whilst the VCO's triangle goes to the Sonic XV for processing by it's wave folder. All of this is mixed in the Muting Mixer & VCA on the top row. This is responsible for the melodic notes and sequence of the first 8 minutes, the drone in the following section, and then the final sequence.

The other 2 VCO's are going to the Ladder Filter, or the Wave Swarm, which is then passed to both the Ladder Filter and the Fixed Filter Bank 914. These are mixed in the middle row's VCA, and the intervals between the pitch of the 2 VCA's in controlled by the Precision Voltages module. This provides the drone in the first 8 minutes, the played notes/chords thereafter, and the choir-like drone during the final section.

Through the sequencer I switch the keyboard control from one voice to the other. I edited out the re-patching between parts to shorten the video - I took my time over the process as my hearing was still not 100%.

Tracks in this performance:
00:00 Intro
00:31 Part 1 - Opening piece
02:15 Part 2 - 'Monotherapy' from 'Grey Days & Old Ways', 2019
07:47 Part 3 - 'Miserere' from 'Two Voices', 2022
17:33 Part 4 - Untitled...
Parts 2 & 3 are available at

'Two Voices' was recorded entirely using the AJH Synth Mini Mod system - the same modules used in this performance. As was 'One System', and the majority of both 'Grey Days...' and 'Lost Soundtracks'."

Synth Jam :: Pro 3 & Hydrasynth as Ableton External Instruments

video upload by experimentalsynth

"I used two instances of Ableton's "External Instrument" module to bring the Sequential Pro 3 and ASM Hydrasynth audio into Ableton for processing. Effects used included Arturia's Efx Fragments and Rev INTENSITY, Valhalla's SuperMassive, and some miscellaneous Ableton and Max4Live effects.

The Pro 3 is using its own sequencer synced to Ableton's clock. The Hydrasynth is sequenced by Max4Live Mono Sequencer.

The Korg NanoKey (to the left of the Hydrasynth) and the Arturia MicroBrute are playing instances of Arturia's Pigments, and the knobs on the NanoKey are controlling the effects on the Pro 3 and Hydrasynth. This is a short excerpt of a 20 min piece coming soon." [below]

Leploop V2 Rare Italian Handmade Analog Synth / GrooveBox w/ extra wooden case

via this auction

"This is such a gnarly beast. Legendary Leploop Cassa kick drum, 2 VCOs with nasty ring mod and an aggressive VCF for all your acid and experimental filtering needs, PLUS generous CV connectivity. Comes with original power supply and extra wooden case.

I've loved this thing ever since I bought it on the say-so of Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey, who said (about the v1, less connected version of the synth): 'I’ve used a lot of synths over the years but this one is something different… it’s a strange instrument. It’s small, much smaller than it appears in photos: it is part synth, part drum machine, part multi-track sequencer. I’m still figuring it all out but initial impressions are that it’s very unpredictable and slightly unstable… but in a good way. The LepLoop will definitely become part of my CCCL experimental arsenal and will most likely get seconded into the upcoming Throbbing Gristle experimental sets in October/November 2010.'"
