GEOSynths Synth Show Jams - Ep140 - With Dean from Electronisounds

video upload by GEOSynths

"Synthesizer Podcast - April 2022 Jams - With Dean from Electronisounds - Episode 140 @ 6pm UK (1pm EST) Sunday 24th April.

Dean from Electronisounds is a dedicated synth nerd, sound designer, YouTuber and multi-instrumentalist. The drums were his first instrument and that love of rhythm is clear in his music. He comes from an old school background of learning to produce before the days of the internet - which gave him a love for hardware gear. (Producing 100% in the box on computers was not an option in the early 1990’s, you needed to have actual hardware gear if you wanted to make electronic music.)

Using hardware led to a love of SAMPLING, which led him to start Electronisounds in 1994, where he began distributing his own sounds, loops and samples. Electronisounds was one of the first independent sample companies. Dean continues this passion for hardware gear today, making sound banks for modern day samplers, groove boxes and synthesizers.

He’s made over 250 sample packs, sound banks and preset banks, and has done sound design for several other companies such as: Eventide, Novation, Native Instruments, Vengeance, Modbap Modular and many more.

He started the Electronisounds YouTube channel in 2017 and has been sharing tutorials and music made with everything from iPads, to Modular Synths and Eurorack to Grooveboxes like the Digitakt and Akai Force. What’s next for Dean? More new sound banks and sample packs coming soon, of course!"

Korg Poly-61 - no talking - part 2/2

video upload by The Synth King

Part 1 here

"The Korg Poly-61 was released in 1982 as the successor to the Polysix. It was somewhat of a step up from the Polysix, as it has 2 DCOs for better reliability. It also retained the arpeggiator of the Polysix. The Poly-61 can provide cool gritty basses or trippy analog sounds and fx. However, its filter only has 7 steps of resonance and is not as fat as the Polysix's filter. It also uses the same method of programming the Poly-800 and Yamaha DX-7 use, so it's not a very useful synth for real-time-tweaking junkies. The first Poly-61s didn't have MIDI, but the Poly-61M released in 1984 corrects this. Overall, the Poly-61 is still a decent synth, and it can be acquired for practically nothing!"

SEQUENTIAL PROPHET 6 - PRESET demos by Catalogue

Drifty Analog Pack 1 for DSI Sequential Prophet Rev2. Sound Demo of 31 Custom Programs. No Talking.

video upload by Just Hardware.

""Drifty Analog Pack 1" for DSI Sequential Prophet Rev2, 8 or 16 voice.
You get 31 custom programs with all sequences shown, except for what is shown in the 2 intro tracks. The 2 beginning intro tracks show the Rev2, with my soundset, in a mix with other instruments for demo purposes, and those other instrument sounds are not included. Drum sample sounds are not included.

Except for the intro, all audio you hear is coming directly from the Rev2, with no external effects. "MW" in the program name means that the mod wheel is enabled for extra modulation.

This pack takes advantage of the flexibility of the Prophet Rev2, modulating various parameters, to create the drifting sounds you hear. Some programs sound similar to each other, but vary in texture or the amount that the parameters will drift. With so many choices, finding a sound for your next track is easy!

Drifty Analog Pack 1 is easy to import into the Rev2, using MIDI sysex transfer software that is compatible with .syx files, like MIDI-OX or SysEx Librarian. You can use the USB port or the MIDI In port of the Rev2 for sysex transfers.


Italo Disco Synthwave with Rm1x and Prophet Rev2. Over 90% Rm1x Internal Sounds. "M/S/H- Italo 37".
video upload by Just Hardware.

"A fusion of Synthwave and Italo Disco with a energetic Dance rhythm. My Sequential Prophet Rev2 does the FM-style bells at the intro and is also used on MIDI track 9. Everything else (over 90%) is just the internal sounds and effects of the Yamaha Rm1x, without any external processing."

Oberheim OB-SX - "magic box" transforms the OB-SX into a full-blown synth

video upload by The Synth King

"I recently bought the "magic box" for my Oberheim OB-SX from Rolf Meurer (MLAB midisoft). This box is not just an easy to install midi retrofit, it transforms your OB-SX preset synthesizer into a fully editable instrument almost on the same level as its big brothers OB-X and OB-Xa.
The "magic box" is also available for the OB-X and OB-Xa

Patch of The Week: 'On the Run' Ep1 Melody - Floyd's Classic Synthi track recreated in Eurorack

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"First of 2 videos showing how to recreate the classic Pink Floyd track from 'Dark Side of The Moon', originally recorded on an EMS Synthi AKS. This first episode covers the sound of the melody and programming the sequence, then Episode 2 (next Sunday) will cover the mysterious percussion (no, it wasn't Nick Mason :P).
In this version just one square wave from a MiniMod VCO is used, and the filter is specifically the Sonic XV, as this is also a 24dB diode ladder filter like the VCF on the Synthi AKS. The only other modules needed are a VCA and an LFO. I also use the Sonic XV's 6dB output - to me this sounds more reminiscent of the Roland TB-303, which actually used an 18dB diode ladder filter, and it gets similarly squelchy with high resonance.
I also experiment using an ADR envelope on the filter frequency - this is a fast sequence, but the Sonic XV responds really nicely to fast envelopes.
Sequencing is courtesy of Doepfer's splendid Dark Time step sequencer, but I also demonstrate using an Arturia Keystep, as this is actually closer to the method used on the AKS version of the Synthi, which came with a digital keyboard sequencer that was significantly ahead of it's time in 1972.

00:24 Sequencing with Keystep

04:28 Patch Sheet

Patch Notes:
Green dots show approximate pot and switch positions. Those with two dots show the range I adjust them during the video. Pots and switches that do not have green dots are not used in this patch, and should be left at their zero or off positions.
SONIC XV: This gets us fairly close to the Synthi's sound, as it shares some lineage from the original diode ladder VCF. I use both 24dB, as the original Synthi filter was 24dB, but also the 6dB output, because in 24dB it is easier to send the filter into self-oscillation when using high resonance, and this sound really benefits from a lot of it. The 6dB can achieve a more noticeable degree of resonance before self-oscillation occurs. It is subjective, and both have their character and strengths, so experiment!
MUTING MIXER or CASCADED VCA: You could also use the Discrete Cascaded VCA for this patch, keeping the Master level high and increasing the Input level until sufficient output volume is achieved. The only reason I used the Muting Mixer here was so I could easily switch between the audio from both 6dB and 24dB outputs of the SONIC XV. If you are using the MUTING MIXER be careful about enabling both inputs at the same time, it will result in an increase in volume, as you are adding audio levels (dB) to each other. It can be very musically useful to do so of course, and worth experimenting with, but bear in mind your overall output level.
Modules used from top-left to bottom-right: Dual LFO + VCA, Vintage Transistor Core VCO, Sonic XV Diode Ladder Wave Filter, Muting Mixer & VCA."

PPG wave 2.3 vs Waldorf Microwave 1

video upload by synthlegends

"In this video I compare some factory presets from the PPG wave 2.3 with some recreated PPG 2.3 Programs on the Waldorf Microwave 1 Rev. B (the latter version with CEM 3387 Filter Chips). The firmware on the PPG is 8.3, the firmware on the Waldorf is 2.0.

Maybe you can reprogram the sounds more accurate, but you can listen that even in the wavetable sounds the wavetable circle is quite spot on in the microwave 1.

Anyway you can listen that the PPG has some more roughness in deeper registers and in higher registers it has the typical aliasing effect. The microwave 1 sounds much cleaner and more polished. The difference about the SSM filter vs. CEM filter is not so much prominent in my opinion. I thought there is a very big hearable difference.

The microwave 1 is quite difficult to program without programmer, like from stereoping. Sometime I think I will buy one. Nevertheless, the microwave a not a substitue for a PPG wave for purists but it has the PPG vibe in it. We will see, if Behringer is capable to get the PPG wave right. Unfortunately I haven’t got the Waldorf M, but a friend has it. I think sometime I will borrow it and also do a A/B comparision with this synth.

In this video I didn't use any processing. I just recorded the synths directly plugging in the interface and also didn't use any plug-ins. I am very curious about your comments and opimions. Thanks for watching."
