Morning Tinkle - A Synth Demo

video upload by Lower West Side Studio

"An early morning patch I created to demonstrate the MFOS VC Echo. 2 tracks were created. The first driven by a CGS57P VCF/VCO then processed by an Oakley Equinox phase shifter and the VC Echo.

A second track at half speed accompanies the first track."

Dave Smith Ob-6 Demo I No Talking + Custom Presets video upload by Alphacode Synth Demos & Patches

Note: the OB-6 soundbank demoed above will be available on the new site within the next day or so.


"We have just released new patch banks for The Sequential OB6 and Modal 008 (demo posted earlier today).
The site has been a great collaboration as it is bringing happy customers back to discover one another's brands. AlphaCodeSynth's contribution to the OB6 is sure to please owners wanting a wider range of good sounding presets. MajorOSC's expressive analog plucks, bass, and pads for 008 should also be a welcome surprise to the small group of 008 owners, as there's been almost no new presets for the synth since production ceased several years ago."

See for all they have to offer.

Patch of The Week: 'Assault on Precinct 13' Gemini 2412 Bass Cover (1976 John Carpenter soundtrack)

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Just for fun, a patch inspired by a classic synth soundtrack from the 1970's. This time using the Gemini 2412, 1 VCO and Ring SM to create a version of John Carpenter's excellent soundtrack for his 1976 movie 'Assault on Precinct 13'. I don't know for certain, but I've a hunch that he might have used an Oberheim SEM module (or perhaps one of it's polyphonic configurations; Four Voice etc), as it sounds like one in the bass part at least, so I've used the Gemini 2412 to simulate it, since this VCF is based on the SEM filter. The SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module) was a classic 2-oscillator analogue synth module from 1975. It sounds to me like a single sawtooth being used in the movie theme, but I add an additional sub-octave using the Ring SM - it's a cover version, not an attempt to recreate it 100%.

I use the Muting Mixer for the VCA, along with it's overdrive function, to create a more aggressive, punchy bass sound, somehow more befitting a dark, low-budget thriller movie of the seventies. I also chose a reverb setting that to me sounded a little claustrophobic. Patch Notes and PDF link further down the page.

Batman Cave-Inspired Suspense-Driven Eurorack Piece (Instruo Modular, Make Noise, Qu-Bit)

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!
Recently rewatched Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy, which was composed by Hans Zimmer, and was heavily inspired to make this piece by the eerie sensation of inside the Batman's Cave, surrounded by bats, water, and fear itself. This modular piece is the calmer, yet eerie interpretation of what I felt while watching it. Using a combination of Instruo Modules, and Make Noise Modules, and most importantly using self-oscillating filters of the Qu-Bit Tone, for the purity and different sound than a standard oscillator. Detailed patch notes on Patreon, as usual. Cheers!

"All voices are functioning perfectly and tune up perfectly.
It has been serviced and cleaned up in January 2021.

The paint coat was damaged from improper storage in a foam case for a few decades, but this doesn’t affect the functionality. The synth is internally really clean."

Nameless Song......

video upload by Denis Polic

"It took me a long time to do anything with music, or to play music under these terrible circumstances. We all thought that the lessons of past would never be repeated on European soil. How wrong and gullible we were. For the second time in European history, one dictator is challenging one nation's right to exist, negating its language and culture, and bringing ruin into the midst of that people in order to achieve his nationalist goals with war and destruction.

The dictatorship that has been set up in its own country is trying with all its power and propaganda to silence all the voices of peace, so it remains hidden to us how many are for, how many are against this madness, and how many are just idly watching what is happening, maybe out of fear or out of indifference. In fact, anyone who supports or endorses this war in any way has blood on their hands and is responsible for the greatest shame in Europe since WWII.

I have strong connections in both of these countries, so it's particularly incomprehensible to me how this could all happen.

So, i was just trying to soothe my growing anger and despair with music, hoping for an soon end of this madness. I name it 'Nameless Song', for all the nameless victims of this tragedy."
