Improvisation with the Buchla Music Easel

video upload by Genshi Media Group


I almost wasn't going to post this one... this is the first half that I had edited out from the previous video as I felt it wasn't as good as it should have been; but once the arpeggiator kicks in halfway through, maybe some would find it a little interesting? In any case, since YouTube recently demonetized me for not uploading anything for a few months, I now need to upload all I can!"

50th Anniversary Serge Paperface Panels from Random Source

"Designing the first generation of Serge modules in '72-'73 was a stab in the dark.

Today, the redesign of these modules is like opening a door to a new universe.

VCOs that track. Dual programmers featuring built-in sequencing and clock.

Silver on enamel panels, yet keeping to the spirit and patch-programmability of the original paperface panels.

Glad to announce the first of several 50th anniversary Serge panels !"

Sequential Pro 3 First Bank - Part 1 - Original Sounds Only

Sequential Pro 3 First Bank - Part 2 - Original Sounds Only

video uploads by Hollo Digi Design

"Ahead of buying the Sequential Pro 3 synthesizer, I did what we all do – I went online and found every clip I could on the machine. Very quickly I realized that the Pro 3 will sound different depending on the person designing sounds for it, so to add to the pile of varied content already out there, I thought I’d share recordings from my first bank of original sounds. This video is Part 1 (softer sounds - for the most part - in this video).

All patches you hear were created within the first month of owning the Pro 3.
No external effects were used (although some sounds do have some slight compression via the very transparent FMR RNC 1773).
Sounds were recorded in one sitting direct into a Zoom H6.
No post processing or mastering was used (apologies on level changes etc.).

Some things I’ve learned about the Sequential Pro 3 synth that I wish I had known:
The Pro 3 has some of the hottest gain staging of any synth I’ve owned/used. If I compare synths like the Moog Sub Phatty, I find myself needing to be quite careful not to create overly aggressive sounds (this could be a plus too though). If you don't like subtle tweaking then this might be an issue.
Once you use a mod matrix that allows you to simply hold a button, tweak a knob to get a source, then do the same for the destination, you’ll want it on every synth you own. The Pro 3 has spoiled me here for sure."

The Lost TARDIS Artifact | 80s Doctor Who Fan Music

video upload by Mamotreco

"Enjoy some ominous incidental synth music that wouldn't be out of place in a Doctor Who serial from back in the day - aka some latter day synth BBC Radiophonic Workshop vibes. I tried to accompany it with appropriate visuals that wouldn't be too out of place, sort of establishing shots amping up the tension. You'd think a Sontaran is going to pop into frame in the middle of an English garden any minute now.

Function Junction Demo and Tutorial

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Nick from Patchwerks shares a comprehensive overview of the Function Junction by Cre8audio. Follow along as Nick explains different patching techniques.

Learn more about the Function Junction here:

Function Junction combines three classic analog modulation sources, ADSR envelope, function generator, and LFO. All are fed into an attenuverting mixer to create a complex modulation junction that can be used as 4 independent sections or in conjunction with each other.

The magic of the module is the ease you can flow from using its functions for basic everyday tasks to creating hyper-complex modulation.

Function Junction came about from a collaboration of the people at Cre8audio and Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers.
Demo by : Nick Bigelow
Video by: Matthew Piecora ( EZBOT) and Steven Ly (Project 32)"

Cherry Audio Introduces Minimode - 16 Voice Virtual Minimoog Model D

video upload by Cherry Audio

"Cherry Audio is kicking off its 'Bob Moog Appreciation Month' with the release of Minimode, our homage to Dr. Robert A. Moog and the best-known and loved analog synthesizer ever made. As part of our month-long celebration, Cherry Audio will be donating a portion of profits from Minimode to the Bob Moog Foundation.

MINIMODE is our painstaking virtual emulation of the granddaddy of all portable synthesizers, the Model D. When we set out to create Minimode, we focused on a single principle: absolute authenticity. We studied and measured every nuance, every curve, and every response of the audio. The interface is a meticulous recreation of the original, from the maple cabinet and textured surface to the unmistakable knobs and switches.

The resulting monophonic tones are so mighty that we could not resist adding one particular enhancement: we've made it easy to dial in two, four, eight, or sixteen polyphonic voices guaranteed to bring the house down. Minimode also includes a library of over 250 presets, and we've added a new feature to Minimode: the ability to save custom MIDI controller mappings to individual presets or globally, or both.
It's been said, "Everyone should have one," and we couldn't agree more. That's why Cherry Audio is bringing Minimode to the desktop for the inconceivably low price of only $39!
The Minimode synthesizer is now available at and authorized resellers worldwide for Windows and macOS, in AU, VST, VST3, AAX, and standalone formats. Visit for additional product details, a free demo, system requirements, and a collection of thunderous sound examples."

Mutable Instruments Tribute Jam...

video upload by Cables For Clouds

"Mutable Instruments was a game changer in eurorack. MI modules inspired many musicians such as myself in ways I never thought imaginable. Music i never thought Id make is because of mutable instruments.
Goodbye Mutable Instruments.
Thanks for helping me broaden my music capabilities.

Mutable Instruments Modules used in this video:
Mutable Instruments Rings
Mutable Instruments Plaits
Mutable Instruments Elements
Mutable Instruments Tides
Mutable Instruments Clouds
Mutable Instruments Braids"

Mutable Instruments' founder, Émilie Gillet, recently announced the following:

“I won’t design new modules and production is progressively stopping. Modules are marked as discontinued when the last shipment is sent to dealers. I can’t predict when it happens as it depends on how fast a batch is made, and how fast it gets sold. It might happen in a week, in a month or in a quarter. There is no easter egg, no plot twist, no teaser.”

Taking our MIDI gear offgrid: Stolperbeats and Digitone

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Finished a chilled weekend with a nice Sunday evening jam! Stolperbeats is heard here MIDI sequencing Elektron's Digitone 4 voice FM synth, a secret Making Sound Machines Eurorack prototype called Percussive Maintenance as well as Fred's Lab's cheeky little paraphonic voice called Zekit. If you haven't already, go check out the DIY workshops at Superbooth 2022 - where you can actually build a Zekit yourself!

Stolperbeats, roughly translating to 'beats tripping over themselves', is a drum trigger sequencer designed to create shuffled beats influenced by artists like Flying Lotus, Hiatus Kaiyote and J Dilla. We've always been fascinated by taking our beats offgrid to give them more fluidity and life. This module allows you to easily dial in and seamlessly switch between all the shuffle, feeling and groove we would, in the past, painstakingly nudge together in a DAW.

Stolperbeats' timing is set to Clave, a special mode where the accents in a 3:3:2 rhythm are fixed "on time" and the rest of the notes shuffle around that. The idea came when we chopped up some Modeselektor beats and started to add swing to them.

The Elektron Digitone acts as a sound module here, receiving Stolperbeats' triggers as MIDI notes - channel, pitch, velocity and note length can be adjusted per track to map to any MIDI capable drum machine or synth. The MIDI is split using the incredibly handy Meeblip cubit to target an extra bass voice on Fred's Lab Zekit. Of course, you can still patch the triggers into Eurorack at the same time, so we whipped out our Percussive Maintenance drum voice to add a kick and some hihats.

While Digitone's internal sequencer is not running in this sketch, Stolperbeats still sends a MIDI clock signal so the tempo synchronizes across the two machines. Enrica uses the built-in keys to live-transpose one of the tracks and play a shuffled melody on top of the sketch. We're very excited about Elektron 's new Syntakt by the way, that looks like a perfect match for Stolperbeats."

Shared System Tutorials | Episode 40 | Morphagene loops & splices | With Teenage Engineering PO-32

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"In this episode I am going to use a 'cheap' drum source (but good!!!) to mash and splice up a simple drum loop into a retro-futuristic jam of beats and glitch. I've been using the Teenage Engineering PO-32 as the only sound source. It's a shared system tutorial, but it's mainly about the #Morphagene so I've been using the Tape & Microsound Music Machine layout to revisit some old school clocking techniques. This series could also be of some help if you only own a Morphagene and haven't been able to figure it out. Have fun!"
