"I find myself in quite an apocalyptic mood for this one.

I discovered Efrim Menuck has almost completely switched to electronics in recent years (checkout ALL HANDS_MAKE LIGHT) which has inspired me to chase that distorted guitar-y sound that I love with mine too. I recently acquired the WMD synchrodyne, which ironically was the first module I saw a YouTube demo of and made me realise I wanted my own euro rack system although I seem to have bought rather a lot of other modules first.... Anyway the synchrodyne is a wonderfully expressive beast, if a little wild at times, and the seaboard is a nice controller for it (even if it makes the tuning a little hit & miss). I added a theremin to my Make Noise Tape & Microsound Machine in case you are wondering why I'm waving my hand about. Also there is a ditto x4 looper on the floor you can't see in the video"

Alpha Juno & Circuit Tracks through Electrix Mo-Fx

video upload by Tum Tum

"It was a rainy day here when I put together this tune, first one in a while, so I wrote a rainy day track. I pulled out the Electrix Mo-Fx, a DJ multi effect from the year 2000. It's got delay, tremolo/pan, and phaser that all have tempo sync and a filter/crossover thing. Super handy, plus it has solid metal knobs.

This little tune reminds me of something from my teen years but I can't put my finger on it. Anybody recognize it?"

Arturia have hooked me up with their V Collection library, I'll likely be going through the whole thing over the next month (with the exception of things like piano and organs). Today I'll be exploring the DX 7 V, THE classic FM synth. I'm not super well versed in FM synthesis, so this one might be a big rough, but it'll be fun to explore this classic legend and experience arturia's twist"

Exploring the Moog Subharmonicon with the Dreadbox Darkness and Dreadbox Lethargy

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Karl from Patchwerks shares a short exploration on one of his favorite synthesizers, the Moog Subharmonicon (with Dreadbox friends.)

Order the Moog Subharmonicon here:
Order the Dreadbox Lethargy here:
Order the Dreadbox Darkness here:

Subharmonicon is a semi-modular polyrhythmic analog synthesizer that employs a 6-tone sound engine and multi-layered sequencers to explore the world of subharmonics, polyrhythms, and the unique relationships they create.

Subharmonicon’s characteristic sound starts with two analog VCOs and four Subharmonic Oscillators for a total of six powerful sound sources. Each subharmonic tone is mathematically derived from one of the two main VCOs, giving the resulting chord shapes a beautifully coherent quality. Onboard quantization lets you dial in perfect intervals every time with selections for multiple tuning systems. Choose from contemporary Equal Temperament settings, the heavenly intervals of Just Intonation, or the unlimited freedom of no quantization at all.

Animating Subharmonicon’s distinctive chord shapes is done through a polyrhythmic pair of 4-Step Sequencers. Each sequencer is clocked by any or all of four Rhythm Generators that output mathematical divisions of the master tempo. Layer multiple Rhythm Generators on top of each other to create complex polyrhythms and discover inspiring new patterns and styles. Delve into Subharmonicon’s dual Envelope Generators, Moog Ladder Filter, and analog VCA to call up dynamic articulations ranging from lush pads and blurred edges to percussive plosives and ritualistic rhythms.

Although no patching is required to start creating, exploring Subharmonicon’s modular patchbay unlocks worlds of possibilities as you make novel connections and plug into new ideas. The 32-point 3.5mm patchbay can be patched into itself, expanding Subharmonicon’s onboard capabilities, or interfaced with Mother-32, DFAM, and other external Eurorack-compatible gear (MIDI Type A adapter included for DIN to 3.5mm MIDI input). Use as a standalone synth with included +12V DC power supply or simply remove the front panel to install into any Eurorack system.

LXR-02: Updating the firmware to 1.3

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Updating firmware is always a bore to be weighed against what new features might be gained. Version 1.3 is definitely worth the effort due to mnay bugfixes but especially (for me) for the much simplified oscillator tuning. Now when the coarse tuning displays a "0" it means you are in tune. So if you play a connected MIDI keyboard or controller it will play exactly the same pitch as the controller. Each increment is a semitone (as before) so +12 is one octave up; -12 is one down. A simple but very handy change.

"Todays Sergery explores using the Stepped Generator as an S&H, taking CV signals from other cv-able modules. Each element is set up to cross-modulate with everything else, so the randomness is created "cybernetically" so to speak. In other words, the cv sources interact with themselves to such an extent that that they appear to be random, but I guess in a way they are not - which presents a question - WHAT IS 'RANDOM'?"
