HexoSynth Modular Synthesizer - Dev Sample 2022-06-30

video upload by Weird Constructor

"HexoSynth is a modular synthesizer that features a large hexagonal grid for placing DSP nodes/modules and connecting them along the edges. Connections between the nodes/modules is done without cables.

In this video I'm demonstrating the live signal views, the small LEDs in the cells and the flickering edges between the cells. That was todays milestone for me. Please bear with the ugly piece of music, it's just for demonstration purposes and I could not dial in a proper key, because the keyboard widget for the quantizer has not been finished yet.

HexoSynth is a free software / open source project, that is in development since 2021. You can follow it's development in my devlogs on my homepage:


via Github

"This project aims to create a modular synthesizer plugin (VST3, CLAP). Like those encountered in projects like VCVRack or Bitwig's Grid.

The core idea is having a hexagonal tile map for laying out module instances and connect them at the edges to route audio signals and control signals to inputs of other modules.

A goal is to provide a simple wireless environment to build sound effects, synthesizers or whole generative music patches from predefined modules.

Hosting plugins (VST, LV2, ...) is out of the scope of this project. The goal is rather to have a good set of predefined modules."

Yamaha SY-1 Solo Synth SN 1740

Yamaha SY-1 | Yamaha’s First Portable Analog Synth | Part of the GX1 and CS80 Lineage
video upload by Alamo Music Audio Lab

"Today, Zach is taking a look at the Yamaha SY-1, a unique synthesizer straight out of the 70's Yamaha organ craze. From the lineage that brought you the all-time great CS-80, the SY-1 is a preset-heavy analog synthesizer that was created and used for lead lines and all kinds of nostalgic tones. Take a look and a listen and tell us what you think!

Sounds start at 6:54"

via this auction

"The first portable synth that Yamaha ever made!
Features the same sound engine as the legendary flagship CS-80 and GX-1 synths, albeit a monophonic primitive version. Also features aftertouch (probably also a first) that can be switched to control vibrato, pitch bend, filter, and volume. The presets are really amazing and go from Vangelis to 70s porn film soundtracks to Toto to Parliament Funkadelic to Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the flick of a switch! (John Williams used its successor, the SY-2, for the famous "Ba Di Da Buh Da"- the SY-2 apparently only had more envelope and filter controls and was otherwise sonically identical.)

Tasty Chips Electronics - ECR+

video upload by SchneidersLaden

"This video is a simple presentation of some of the sounds we came across while exploring the ECR+ by Tasty Chips Electronics. There is definitely much more to discover and we look forward to hearing your creations with the ECR+. We have one in our showroom, if you're in town, stop by and check it out.

Tasty Chips have been known for their GR-1 Granular Sampler for years. With their first Eurorack product they have brought something new to the table. Probably the first Stereo Convolution Reverb for Eurorack - the ECR+.

The module is more than just a plain reverb effect. One of the most distinctive features is the ability to load two impulse responses at once, between which you can then crossfade with a knob or by CV. The position of the impulse response, the stereo width and a few other parameters can also be controlled by CV to create even more interesting effects. This, plus the fact that you can load your own impulse responses into the module and even record on it, makes the ECR+ a great tool for sound design and unheard sounds."

Further Explorations // Verbos Scan & Pan + XAOC Devices Timiszoara, Odessa, Batumi and Zadar

video upload by Genshi Media Group


Further explorations with the Verbos Electronics Scan & Pan mixer and the XAOC Devices Timiszoara, Odessa, Batumi, and Zadar. The Scan & Pan is turning out to be a pretty amazing module as it Scans through the three channels featuring the Odessa's Odd, Even, and Fundamental outputs (and Pans channel three which is Odessa's Fundamental.) Couple that with the Timiszoara for effects and the modulation on the Odessa, makes for some really interesting sound!. Sequencing provided by the Intellijel Metropolix. Modulation from Batumi and Zadar which is also providing the Envelopes for Channel 1 and 2 of the Verbos."

Moog Matriarch Music Box Ambient Patch

"This is another oversaturated delay patch with the Matriarch.
Running a basic repetitive sequence in attempt to simulate a music box or perhaps old fashion carousel music.

Maybe this is pleasant lullaby music or something that might help someone study.

Note: the patch cable connecting the 2nd LFO and the 2nd attenuator serves no function and was left connected by mistake.

Moog Mother-32 + Mutable Instruments Warps | and some thoughts about Mavis

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Mavis has been on all significant YouTube channels last week and I've been super impressed by the sounds coming from this little DIY starter synth. I really felt the 'gear aquisition syndrome' hitting hard. But I already own tons of modules, so I wanted to take good old Mother-32, hook it up with Warps and see how 'westcoast' it can get. I decided to skip Mavis and go for the Subharmonicon instead (coming soon) because it's very different from anything I know.

But it was tough (I had it in my shopping cart), because Mavis can add a lot to a bare table, and even more to an existing Moog 60 HP tableltop set. It's a really clever design. To give you and impression I hooked up the M-32 to 0-Coast, the 'other' tabletop westcoast starter synth from MakeNoise. I still think I'd get a Mavis when the hype is over because it adds a lot to the classic Mother and vice versa."

Sequential Take 5 Analog Synthesizer Sounds Part 2

video upload by Pure Ambient Drone

Part 1 here

"Dave Smith and the gang at Sequential have cooked up something special with the Take 5 compact polyphonic analog synthesizer. The Take 5 brings polyphonic analog synthesis and the legendary Sequential sound to a new generation of synthesists. It’s affordable, portable, and approachable — an ideal synth for newcomers and seasoned synth wizards alike. Though compact, the Take 5 certainly doesn’t skimp on tone! Its five voices are massive, owing to its all-analog dual VCOs. Plus, its splendid 4-pole resonant VCF is inspired by the Prophet 5 Rev 4, a modern classic steeped in tradition. With ample modulation options, including two 5-stage envelopes and one global LFO and one freely assignable LFO — there are few areas of subtractive synthesis you can’t explore with the Take 5. Not only is the Take 5 a stellar sound design tool, but it’s also a brilliantly conceived performance instrument that features a satisfying Fatar keybed with aftertouch and velocity sensitivity. You can even split the keys into two performance zones with different octave ranges! Whether it’s your first polyphonic synth or your 50th, the Sequential Take 5 is an ultra-versatile, extremely fun polysynth!

Portable, Powerful, Polyphonic
The Take 5 is Sequential’s most compact, full-featured, full-throttle VCO/VCF-based poly synth ever. It’s the perfect gateway to subtractive synthesis and the creative power of Sequential’s best synths — whether you’re new to analog synths or a space-conscious pro. And since it’s portable, you can transport it from studio to stage without breaking a sweat or leaving any features or playability behind. Genuine Sequential sound and quality at a price within your reach.

Fits Anywhere You Need It
With 44-full-size keys and a total width of just 26 inches, the Take 5 fits easily into your studio or on stage. Its nearly knob-per-function control panel gives you immediate access to all of its essential sound-shaping controls. And its ingenious key-split feature gives you access to a wider playable range than other compact synths by letting you divide the 3.5 octave keyboard into two separate performance zones.

Powerful Synthesis
The five voices of the Take 5 get their distinctive sound from a combination of two analog VCOs and a sub oscillator passing through a Prophet-5-lineage 4-pole analog filter. The result is classic Sequential — smooth, warm, punchy sound that sits perfectly in a mix and cuts through clearly on stage. For even more analog-style goodness, a Vintage knob adds voice-to-voice variation for genuine vintage character. Dual Digital effects, a dedicated overdrive, continuously variable wave shaping, and front-panel access to analog FM all ensure the Take 5 can kick out modern tone just as easily as it does vintage..

Finishing Touches
The Take 5 feature set is rounded out with two LFOs (1 global, and 1 per-voice), two ADSR+delay envelopes, extensive modulation, a 64-step polyphonic sequencer, and a multimode arpeggiator. The premium Fatar keybed makes it a pleasure to play, wherever you take it."

"This unit is in excellent condition for its age. The serial number dates it to May of 1985. These units were made famous by the likes of Laurie Anderson on her album Big Science."

My understanding is she used a Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus MkI.

High MPE settings with no discernible envelope crackling so hopefully that bug has been completely worked out.

Roland JX3P VS System 8 (Custom Patch and 1983 Factory preset(s) comparison)

video upload by Justin Carey

"I noticed that some of the System 8 Factory original sounds did not match up on my JX3P. I made my own custom (original patches) on the System 8 to match my JX3P. I would say that a similarity percentage of 80-99% can be achieved achieve in sonic parity on the 'Plug-Out' JX3P. Maybe even a tighter margin 90-99%. I hope this video can answer the same sonic questions I had about this synth."

K-Devices Releases TATAT as VST3 and AU MIDI Notes Generator Plugin

video upload by kdevices

TATAT - Full walkthrough tutorial

The press release:

Arvieux, France - June 28 2022. K-Devices, developer of creative music tools, has released TATAT - a MIDI streams generator, as VST3 and Audio Unit plugin.

TATAT is a (unstable) MIDI notes generator plugin: it's a creative tool to assist and help producers and musicians to generate new ideas, becoming a great starting point for writing melodies and beats, and a perfect controller for virtual instruments and hardware gears alike.
TATAT has been designed for 3 main purposes: to create always-changing sequences, to quickly sketch and store music ideas, to add unexpected events to fixed patterns.

Notes generation in TATAT is based on a multi-chance concept: user sets up for multiple rhythms, multiple notes, intervals, and other parameters value. Using dedicated multisliders the user can then adjust the chance a note and/or a time resolution are adopted on next trigger, creating complex streams of events. The generated notes are then processed by several operators: Velocity, Less, Delay, and Length.

TATAT produces then a stream of notes based on settings and probabilities: we call these settings “mood”.

Once user got the right mood, he can do different actions:
to enjoy the always changing stream of notes
to enable “thru” to add the generative stream of notes on the top of a fixed MIDI clip/file or live MIDI input
to inject stability by using LIV/MEM horizontal slider, to mix between the live generated stream and a frozen pattern
to use the export icon (the triangle) to drag on a timeline, clip slots or folders, different MIDI files, generated by TATAT according to its mood
TATAT gives great results both with melodic/harmonic content, and percussive parts and beats!

TATAT is a brand new plugin, but it already exists in our catalogue as a Max For Live device. Since its release, TATAT got a lot of love from our users, and we received multiple requests asking for opening up its use to other DAWs; so we are really thrilled for it to finally become available to everyone!
== Requirements ==
Available as VST3 and Audio Unit plugin
any 64bits compatible DAW
MacOS (Apple Silicon ready) and Windows
== Availability, price, and deals ==

launch price: 19 EUR (until July 30)
regular price: 39 EUR (after July 30)

Radiophonic Sci-Fi Sonics Inspired by Daphne Oram

Utilizing analog tape delay (unfortunately out of frame of this video) - we set out to improvise in the style of the early work of Daphne Oram, whose first radio program was an extended poem set to eery radiophonic tape experimentation.

In this video, we created an improvised soundtrack to a poem by Edgar Allen Poe.

Buchla Music - Showroom Dummies

video upload by Jeanie

"Performance setup : Buchla 200e system + Buchla Music Easel + KeyStep Pro + Strymon blueSky

Showroom Dummies

through the window, there‘s a reflection
alter ego, a void expression
the pain lingers inside leaving no traces
words behind lips, muting in silence

deep in shadow, be with illusions
running echoes, a maze of direction
the tears pour down blurring out faces
enfolded by mist, blocking in distance

now strike a pose, flesh cracking
sway on bones, crowds watching
as cold as stone, hands clapping
false alarms yell under red light

standing in line
all the showroom dummies
hush be quiet
all the showroom dummies"

Recording Acoustic Instruments with GLO

video upload by Poorness Studios

"NOTE: The audio output from GLO goes directly into the camera, so GLO is functioning as the camera's only mic.

I did a video about Phonicbloom's GLO (the polyphonic whale) a little while ago and I decided to use it to record some acoustic instruments (guitar, banjo, ukulele, steel tongue drum, handpan, Native American flute, glockenspiel, harp, and tanpura).

Intro - 0:00
Sounds - 1:08
