Sequential OB-6 Sound Pack - All FM sounds

video upload by Polydata

"Sound pack of 50 patches with sequences for the excellent Dave Smith Instruments / Sequential OB-6 analog synthesizer. All of these patches use VCO 2 as an audio rate modulation source via the X-Mod section. I decided to make an all FM pack for the OB-6 after doing a set for the prophet-6. It was definitely more challenging at first, but it led me to approaching sounds in some new ways, which produced some amazing results.

Sounds load into slots 400-449 as default. Everything heard here is totally dry, with no effects, EQ or compression. Just playing straight off the synth's front panel.

Drop a comment of what other sound packs you're interested in (more prophet-6, OB-6, prophet-12, Arturia V Collection, or others).

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

How to create expressive sounds on a synthesiser (Novation Peak sound design tutorial)

video upload by Floyd Steinberg

"Synthesisers have this image of producing machinelike, controlled sounds. In this beginners #sounddesign tutorial, let's set up a #synthesiser so it reacts to your style of playing in a more natural way, allowing for a more expressive, lyrical style of playing, like on a #piano. Table of contents:

00:00 introduction
00:13 what are 'expressive sounds'?
01:07 control inputs your synth can react to
01:36 mapping velocity to sound level / loudness
03:24 mapping velocity to filter cutoff frequency
05:56 Filter /Amp envelope for more natural sounding patches
07:43 mapping aftertouch to oscillator 2 loudness and filter cutoff frequency
09:28 adding effects
10:05 short demo
10:57 other important things to consider"

Inertia and Complex Filtering, or Waveshape Dependent Filtering

video upload by New Systems Instruments

"This video explains how to use Inertia, a Eurorack module from New Systems Instruments, as a complex filter, or a waveshape dependent filter. Both terms are interchangeable.

For more about inertia or to check out the manual, see our website:

Inertia is a new take on a complex function generator that models real world systems, adding a "momentum" parameter that can go into self-oscillation. It produces extremely nuanced, clean, and natural exponential envelopes and skewed sine LFOs. At audio rate, it works great as a VCO, a frequency divider, and a very unique resonant filter. It tracks 5+ octaves and in skew mode has a single frequency knob, so there are no compromises in using it for audio."

New Erica Synths MK1 vs es.EDU Dual VCA - Build and Demo

video upload by Synth Diy Guy

"Part 2 of the series on Moritz Klein and Erica Synth's educational system! This time we build, calibrate and play the cool dual VCA!"

Part one here.

Introducing the mki x DIY VCA kit

video upload by Moritz Klein

"The mki x es. EDU VCA is simple, yet efficient dual VCA for your eurorack system. It has DC coupled inputs, so you can use the VCA both for audio and CV signals. Inputs of the second VCA are normalled to the first one, which allows to split audio signal to both VCA or control both VCAs with a single CV. A 60 page build manual explains electronics behind the module and provides step-by step build instructions.

"Here again performing on our complete ARP 2500 modular synthesizer is our regular collaborator and good friend, electronic music artist Ombient. His previous performance featured on this channel was a 21 minute melodic ride of "ARPic" proportions featuring the 2500, 2600 and Pro-Soloist. For his second recorded effort on this system, Ombient wanted to present a performance done exclusively on the 2500 as a tribute to the compositional style of legendary French electronic music composer Éliane Radigue. Sit back and soak in this endlessly evolving, expertly guided journey on this wonderful instrument.

Crumar Bit One

"This synth has a very unique, inspiring sound to it. Really special! If you plug it in stereo, the voices are divided across the outputs to give it a stereo effect. Never seen this before. There’s a video on youtube demonstrating this." See this post. See 3:21 here for a demo on a white model Bit99.

Korg MS2000 Analog Modeling Synth

"great piece of machinery for a digital synth. classic korg quality, you will have fun with all the options for shaping sound. this synth has traveled all throughout North America and Europe in the early 00's in a techno band, but has been living safely in a closet since then."

ARP Solus

via this auction

"ARP Solus, monophonic synthesizer from the 70's, made in USA. Really nice condition, face plate is near mint. Everything works. The design is kind of unique as the case is part of the synth (cover is removable), very portable. Everybody knows the quality and the massive sound you get from 70's ARPs. Two Fat oscillators, filter and audio in, ring modulator, great in/outs to deal with other modular gear."

Marble Jam //Marbles/Subharmonicon/Mother 32/STO/Rings/Tides/Magneto/Maestro/Voltage Block//

video upload by Aleatoric Machine

"I’ve wanted to try this for a while. The two channels from Mutable Instruments Marbles are playing the two channels of Moog Subharmonicon, with a sound that reminds me of a Fender Rhodes, through Strymon Magneto. A couple different clocked LFOs from Acid Rain Maestro cause the pitches from Marbles to keep gravitating back to the tonic, with some jamming in between. Mutable Instruments Rings repeats a single note in a Euclidean rhythm coming from ALM Pamela’s New Workout, but modulating the structure causes the ringing to drift up and down from a fifth to an octave. Moog Mother 32 and Make Noise STO double on the bass line. When the melody finally comes it, it is Mutable Instruments Tides through Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl, Mood, and Dark World. Malekko Voltage Block handles the mix scenes, with Mutable Instruments Stages providing slew in between."

Stylophone Gen X-1 Stylus Hack: How to sequence the Stylophone Gen X-1 using the Korg SQ-1

video upload by Stylophone

"How to sequence the Stylophone Gen X-1 using the Korg SQ-1

1) Connect the Stylophone Gen X-1 stylus pen to a lead going to one of the CV outputs on the Korg SQ-1.

2) Make sure they are earthed together through an input or output.

In this video some Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator rhythm is added to the mix. Here the PO is connected at the aux input, which is all processed by the filter and delay on the Stylophone Gen X-1"

Making a Prophet Type Synth Pad Sound with Analog in Ableton Live (Sound Design Tutorial)

video upload by Jannis Le Wolff

"In this Ableton Live Sound Design tutorial I'm going to show you you can create a large, open and rich synth pad sound that is inspired by the sound of the legendary Prophet 5 synthesizer by using the synth "Analog".

Of course it is not possible to copy the sound of such a great piece of hardware, but I think it's a great exercise to try getting as close as possible with your own gear, since it really makes you learn the synth and its functionality. From there, you can easily make your own unique sound out of it.

You can also apply the changes to other synthesizers, but the sound can always differ due to the difference in filter and oscillator sound.

Roland JX-08 Boutique Sonic LAB Review

video upload by sonicstate

"The latest Roland Boutique is inspired by the 1985 JX-8P - we say inspired because:
a) It has controls (the original didn't) based on the optional PG800 programmer
b) It has up to 20 voices of polyphony and a two part multi-timbral engine"

"The UDO Super 6 is definitely one of my favourite synths for creating patches ambient (and melancholic) oriented. So i'm making a lot of ambient patches with it!

Here a live jam only with the Super 6 (and his beautiful delay).
Hope you enjoy!"
