Noisebug’s 4ms Sound-on-Sound System

video upload by NOISEBUG

"Running guitar through the 4ms Sound-on-Sound System, a Noisebug Exclusive! The 4ms Sound on Sound System was designed here at Noisebug to offer a small, compact sampling system that can be used in a variety of different situation, using a variety of different instruments. The Percussion Interface (PI) and PI Expander are a pair of Eurorack modules that generate gates and envelopes from acoustic drums, samplers, drum machines, and virtually any audio source that is plugged into its input, making this system a true sampling powerhouse! Next is the Stereo Triggered Sampler, a high fidelity, two-channel stereo sample recorder and playback module. The STS can record high quality stereo files, while simultaneously playing two different stereo files. A maximum of 600 samples can be loaded from the removable/swappable microSD card, in a variety of formats up to 96kHz/32-bit/stereo WAV. All sample parameters (1V/oct pitch, sample file selection, length, and start position) are CV controllable and can be controller directly from your incoming audio's amplitude using the envelope outputs on the Percussion Interface. Just to the right of the STS is the Dual Looping Delay. A modern looping devices grew directly from hardware digital delays of the late 70s and early 80s. A looping delay, modeled on units such as the classic Lexicon PCM42, has the very long storage times associated with dedicated looping, but without triggered record and playback functions. By default, a looping delay records and plays continuously, though recording can be suspended at any time with Infinite Repeat. Sustain of delays and loops is mainly accomplished with regeneration, allowing an organic, evolving approach to sound creation as new material replaces old, more or less gradually. The 4ms Dual Looping Delay also provides advanced clock input and output facilities that allow for locking delayed and looped material with sequencers and rhythmic devices. The final stage in this system is the Listen Four Quarters, a four channel stereo mixer with 1/4" (6.35mm) TRS balanced outputs and 1/8" (3.5mm) headphones output. Two mono channels with Pan knobs and two stereo channels with dual inputs provide optimal compatibility with both stereo and mono signals. The Listen Four Quarters can be daisy-chained to other Listen modules to create a larger mixer with sub-mix outputs.

Dove Audio - D502 Multimode VCF

video upload by NOISEBUG

"The D502 Multimode filter is based on the SSI2140 VCF chip. This chip has a unique stucture and gives it a different sound to most 4 pole filters.

You are able to select which of the 4 poles is fed to the output, giving you instant access to 4pole low pass, 3 pole low pass, 2 pole low pass and 1 pole low pass at the flick of a switch!

However it doesn’t stop there, you are able to make the first two poles into high pass poles, allowing all kinds of interesting filter topologies, for example you can easily get the following filter modes.

1 pole low pass
2 pole low pass
3 pole low pass
4 pole low pass
1 pole high pass + 1 pole low pass (1 pole bandpass)
1 pole high pass + 3 pole low pass
1 pole high pass + 2 pole low pass
2 pole high pass + 1 pole low pass
2 pole high pass + 2 pole low pass (2 pole bandpass)
2 pole high pass
1 pole low pass with special resoance drive
1 pole high pass with special resoance drive + 1 pole low pass (1 pole bandpass with a gnarly sound)"

"'2 Steps Back' | Ambient Eurorack Patch

Nothing very special this time, sorry...

Just me having a less than stellar time experimenting with the new Reverbs in the 1010 Bluebox Beta Firmware. They sounded great, but it kept on crashing during recording.... :(

So, what you are hearing here is the older Bluebox reverb from an older firmware.

It sounds ok, but nothing near as magical as the "Cloud Reverb" I was trying to use from the newer Firmware that would not record.... :(

Whatever kind of music you are making - KEEP IT UP, Friends!
Don't stop making *YOUR MUSIC*!!"

Bright Sparks - Tom Oberheim

video upload by GForce Software

"After the 2015 release of our Bright Sparks Documentary & Album collaboration with I Monster, while we were elated at the critical acclaim the project received, we always felt it would have been enriched by the inclusion of one person in particular, Tom Oberheim.

On the instrumental version of the Bright Sparks album, I Monster had created a bonus track, Beneath The Planet Of The Oberheim and while we'd reached out to Tom Oberheim and asked him to appear in the accompanying documentary, for various reasons it wasn't possible.

Then in Feb 2021, after the release of our OB-E 8-Voice emulation, we got the chance to talk with Tom whereupon our second question was 'Can we persuade you to be filmed for a new Bright Sparks Chapter?'

Tom agreed and while covid put our plans on hold temporarily, we carried on communicating, and in October 2021 we sat at the UK end of a zoom call while cameraman Sam Graydon filmed Tom in the comfort of his California home. Additionally, ex-Oberheim engineer (and industry icon), Marcus Ryle, joined us from his studio and imparted his experience of working at Oberheim in the 80s and how, over 30 years later, he was pivotal in Tom regaining the use of his name and logo.

The result is a new Bright Sparks chapter dedicated to Tom Oberheim. A fascinating journey through the life and career of one of the most revered synthesiser pioneers, whose work has graced the tracks of everyone from Joe Zawinul to Stevie Wonder, Lyle Mays, Jam and Lewis and countless others.

Đorđe Balašević ( 11 May 1953 – 19 February 2021) was a Serbian and Yugoslav singer and songwriter, writer, poet and director. He began his career in the late 1970s as a member of the band Rani Mraz, transitioning after two albums to a solo career. He first gained mainstream prominence for writing Rani Mraz's hit "Računajte na nas" (Count on Us), which was often described as an anthem of a generation. Noted for his vivid lyricism and poetry, Balašević was also known for weaving political commentary into his songs and live performance.

Broadly supportive of South Slavic unity in late 1970s and early 1980s, in the lead up to the Yugoslav wars he began to criticise the authorities. During the Yugoslav wars, he became a prominent anti-war voice in the region, thanks to which he also became an UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. Balašević was the first Serbian act to perform in Sarajevo following the siege of Sarajevo. Balašević became one of the most prominent critics of Slobodan Milošević's regime, at considerable personal risk. Djordje was a prolific singer and writer, he recorded 14 albums and 8 books during his career and has been characterised by media and commentators as "musical legend" and author of many "evergreen hits

New Erica Synths mki x es .EDU DIY Eurorack Enclosure & PSU

via Erica Synths

The mki x es. edu project takes you on a journey of building a complete, self-contained eurorack system. Those who are already into eurorack will find the mki x es. edu modules to be a nice addition to their existing systems, but those who are about to take their first steps into modular synthesizers will need a reliable and safe power supply unit (PSU) and eurorack-compatible enclosure.

We designed a DIY eurorack PSU based on a DC/DC converter that turns +12VDC from a wall wart AC/DC adapter into eurorack standard bipolar +-12V. This ensures the voltage in your eurorack system never exceeds 12V and any area in your eurorack case is safe to touch. In order to reduce the overall cost of the case we do not use eurorack rails with threaded inserts or sliding nuts, instead, there are pre-drilled, threaded holes to accommodate the modules of the mki x es. edu system in a specific order.

NB! The enclosure & PSU are designed specifically to accommodate DIY modules from mki x es. edu series and are not compatible with other eurorack modules.

RRP: 110 EUR (VAT excl.)
MAP: 139 USD

mki x es. EDU enclosure & PSU
high-res photos of DIY EDU series
We – Erica Synths and Moritz Klein – have developed series of educational DIY kits under the brand name mki x es. EDU with one specific goal in mind: to teach people with little-to-no prior experience how to design analog synthesizer circuits from scratch. What you’ll find in the box is not simply meant to be soldered together and then disappear in your rack. Instead, we want to take you through the circuit design process step by step, explaining every choice we’ve made and how it impacts the finished module.

In total, we have developed 9 kits to build a fully featured modular mono-synth: a sequencer, a VCO, a wavefolder, a noise/S&H module, a mixer, a VCF, an Envelope generator, a dual VCA and an output stereo mixer with a headphone amplifier. Additionally, an affordable eurorack case with a DIY PSU will also be available. While these kits are easy to build, we did not compromise on design and functionality. We will launch one kit every 4-6 weeks. Each kit comes with an extensive user manual (40+ pages) that will dive deep into not only the electronics behind each circuit, but also the fundamental principles of sound synthesis.

We hope that the mki x es. EDU project will inspire future engineers and will contribute to the ever growing diversity of electronic music technology.

Shadow of Boseiju // Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Official Soundtrack

video upload by Amie Waters

"I want to thank Wizards of the Coast for sponsoring this song and video! I also want to shout out @Jonathan Young for including me in this project and all the other incredible artists who made music for the Kamigawa Neon Dynasty Official Soundtrack!

Take a midnight stroll with me, through the neon streets of Towashi. Lost in existential thought, your eyes catch glimpses of the Sacred Mother, Boseiju who towers above even the highest skyscrapers. Your listless wandering leads you to the Boseiju District, a place where the clamor and din of the city finds pause. In this relative tranquility, you feel a space long missing, where your emotions can finally stretch their legs. The euphoria rises up inside of you as each step you take becomes more intentional, more deliberate. As you find a comforting place to sit and reflect, a song that has been dancing through the night air plays on a distant chime. The peace you feel grows up from the ground, connecting you to roots more ancient than you could imagine as you share a moment of deep time with the one who endures, Boseiju. #MtGNeon

Noises - HAINBACH's New Experimental Instrument With AudioThing

video upload by HAINBACH

"Noises is the latest collaboration between @AudioThing and me. This time, we created an instrument (AU/VST/AAX) focused on creative exploration of textures. With unique controls, an internal sequencer, 21 banks of 8 unique sampled atmospheres each, ranging from Autobahn to forgotten flight simulator and 118 presets lovingly crafted by yours truly, Noises is made to inspire.

We believe it is a unique instrument to add texture to your music and media productions, as well as becoming an important tool in your tracks. Get it now on intro price:"

"A Twisted Rainbow Of Sound

Noises is an experimental instrument with a playful and inspiring interface, designed to bring a vast world of noise into your music and audio production.

Noises is the fourth plugin we developed together with German composer and “that guy with the sweaters” Hainbach. He crafted hundreds of recordings of rare vintage measurement and tape equipment, analog synths, strange field recordings, electro-acoustic and magnetic field experiments, and more in his lab to create this creative noise instrument with us. It is designed to be fast and inspiring to use, with a big dial at its center inviting you to search for sounds and a sequencer to make them music. This results in a minimum of clicks for a maximum of sound.

Used subtly, it adds coherence to your tracks. Used creatively, this can be the basis for whole tracks. It is easy to create modern scores for film, games, and podcasts with it and a quick tool for sound design. If you need a break, put it on and relax to carefully curated noise sequences."

Amplitude X-Time delay: Long noodle (& BPM rant)

video upload by Richard DeHove

My site: Lots of downloads for supporters on Patreon:

"I wanted a delay that I could control by manually setting a BPM rate. I have plenty of rate-knob delays, tap tempos delays and a a MIDI-clock controlled delay. But there's nothing like a full workstation-style delay where you can dial in a BPM rate. Unfortunately the X-Time isn't it. I was astonished to discover (and have confirmed by their support people) that you can display BPM. The options are millseconds or time divisions of either a global set BPM or incoming clock.

That means the primary reason I bought this machine is lost. Of course the obvious answer is that I should have done my research a bit better. OTOH every complex workstation-style delay I've ever heard of can display BPM. Weird. Maybe it'll be addressed in an update.

In the meantime I thought there was still some value in watching a noob flub about with the different modes and also butchering some presets.

In short, this is not a performance machine, it's a preset machine. Craft your sound, store it, then recall it.
If delays were people then the Erica Synths Zen delay would be your wild but happy friend; the X-Time would be the grumpy uncle who works at Microsoft."
