New $155 Qun mk2 Synthesizer with Sequencer & Looper by Nunomo

video upload by Nunomo LLC

"This is the first demo of Qun mk2."

via Nunomo

"Qun mk2 is a powerful and unique pocket synthesizer with sequencer and looper.

Normally cheap synthesizers don't have full flexibility because of hardware limitations.

I was dreaming if I can get a small synth that has full flexibility of the real synth with an affordable price tag. Qun mk1 was the synth.

Mk2 receives big improvement from mk1 by adding LED buttons and external processor for UI processing. SD card support is added.

Once you get used to it, it will be so powerful and it will provide tons of flexibility. It is a real synth, not preset machine.

If you are looking for pocket music sketch tool, this is it."

Introducing INSTALOOPER3

video upload by Audio Blast

"With 6 embedded effects : Gate , Bit Reducer , Auto Pan ,Hi Pass , Phaser , Time Expand
Inclunding : Parameter sequencer ,16 automatable parameters to sequence
Also Including 32 glitch presets !

InstaLooper3, is not a traditional loop recorder.
With this plugin, we can loop the real time audio to apply time and pitch changes to create effects on your musical creations.
It increases your workflow, because no more needs to lose hours of your time editing your sequences to create rhythm, glitch, drill, time effects.
This plugin effect is more considered like a glitch effect tool by our team, and we love to use it to create breaks at the end of measures and unstructured the sound, looping it fast to create roll effects.

Bullet List:
• 4 independent loops to edit.
Each loop gets:
• An On/off loop button to activate/deactivate the loop.
• 12 different sizes : 1 Bar, 1/2, 1/2T, 1/4, 1/4T, 1/8, 1/8T, 1/16, 1/16T, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128.
• An On/off FX button to activate/deactivate the effect.
• 6 integrated FX: Gate, Bit Crusher, Auto Pan, Filter, Phaser, Time Expand.
• A Dry/Wet knob for the effect amount.
• A parameter knob to edit each effect.
• A reverse button to reverse the loop.
• A On/Off Pitch button to activate/deactivate the pitch on loop.
• And a Pitch knob to edit the pitch of the activated loop.
The Parameter sequencer:
• 16 knobs are independent and step automatable.
• 16 steps by parameter track.
• 3 play speed on each loop: /4, /2, x1.

You can edit each knob value with the step sequencer associated for each independent loop to create more glitch and interesting effects.
Loop size, Dry/Wet, Param and Pitch are fully automatable independently on each loop.

Behringer UB-Xa - Synth King Presets

video upload by The Synth King

"I had the honor to be part of the beta tester team for the Behringer UB-Xa. We worked very hard during the last few years to get everything spot on. All members of the team had a vintage OB-Xa and OB-8 for in depth comparison and measurement. This video showcases a few of the custom presets I´ve created for the UB-Xa. The sounds were recorded without any effects, dynamic processing or whatsoever straight into the audio interface. For the performances in split mode I´ve added a slight touch of reverb. The synthesizer in the video is an early preproduction unit with the firmware in development."

Vangelis Has Passed Away

Some sad news in via Soviet Space Child, spotted on The Gaurdian. Vangelis has passed away at the age of 79. You all know who he is and the influence he has had on the synth world.

The image to the left was taken at the premiere of El Greco in 2007 and is the image used for his Wikipedia page, which includes the following:

"Having had a career in music spanning over 50 years and having composed and performed more than 50 albums, Vangelis is considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of electronic music.

Vangelis began his career working with several pop bands of the 1960s such as The Forminx and Aphrodite's Child, with the latter's album 666 (1972) going on to be recognized as a progressive-psychedelic rock classic. Throughout the 1970s, Vangelis composed scores for several animal documentaries, including L'Apocalypse des Animaux, La Fête sauvage and Opéra sauvage; the success of these scores brought him into the film scoring mainstream. In 1975 he set up his new 16-track studio, Nemo Studios in London, which he named his 'laboratory'. In the early 1980s, Vangelis formed a musical partnership with Jon Anderson, the lead singer of progressive rock band Yes, and the duo released several albums together as Jon & Vangelis.

In 1980, he composed the score for the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Original Score. The soundtrack's single, the film's theme, also reached the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and was used as the background music at the London 2012 Olympics winners' medal presentation ceremonies.[1] He also composed the official anthem of the 2002 FIFA World Cup held in Korea and Japan."

There are endless videos and performances of Vangelis. I thought I would share the following classics.

My favorite song from THE CARS from the Album Heartbeat City (1984)

I used here the Roland JX-3P Synthesizer for the brass pad and the main strings. In the original song made with the Jupiter-8 but the JX-3P is a very good JP-8 alternative for the most sounds. The second voice pad and the bell sound is made with the Yamaha DX7 II. For the drums I used the EII sample library.

Ruina is a creative stereo distortion plugin built on digital distortion algorithms: no emulations here. Intuitive and fully automatable controls make it easy to get a gentle, nuanced color, to obliterate a signal, or to dial in anything in between. Don’t feel like tweaking the parameters? Ruina comes with tons of presets to fit any need. With seven distortion types, it’s easy to turn your sounds into something new and unique with Ruina.

Run any sound through Ruina for warm, lush distortion, or crank the sliders to unleash complete destruction. We love Ruina with vocals, percussion, synths, strings, and of course guitars. You name it, it sounds great with Ruina."

Moog Sound Studio: DFAM + Subharmonicon. 50 Combo Patches. + Samples. Demo

video upload by Anton Anru

"Welcome to the soundset for a semi-modular system, Moog Sound Studio: DFAM + Subharmonicon.
It is a collection of 50 patches that include basses, drums/percussion, leads, plucks, stabs/chords, generative-style patterns. There is a wide range of sound colors inside the pack: massive and gentle, aggressive and soft, bright and dull, harmonic and dissonant tones, straight and polymetric rhythms.

🔮 Get the soundset:

✅ high level of interconnection of the synths
✅ thoroughly set parameters
✅ detailed notes for patches full of tips and tricks
✅ audio examples in 3 versions: DFAM only, Subharmonicon only, both together
✅ to recreate these patches you need up to 12 patch cords
✅ one of my hardest work ever, I spent up to 2 hours for each patch
✅ FREE BONUS: 150 samples with Scale and BPM (75-126 BPM), Wav 24/44100

The main point of the soundset is the high level of interconnection, not just syncing the two synths with independent timbres (individual patches for DFAM and Subharmonicon are also available on my website). In this patchbook the timbres of the synths are soldered and can’t exist separately:
🔸 they modulate each other with Envelopes
🔸 a sequence from one synth may change parameters on the other one
🔸 triggers interaction, clock/rhythm, run/stop modulations break predictable patterns
🔸 audio signals from VCOs may be used as modulation sources to create harmonies/intervals or 🔸 crazy experimental inharmonic tones

At the same time, they play different and clear roles, it’s not a sound mess, but two synths working in close cooperation.

💽 Also, there’s a separate folder with WAV samples with the same timbres, with Scale and BPM information. You may use them inside a sampler or DAW if you want 100% same sound as in the examples. Slice them for one-shots or loops, this is a great material for further editing and processing.

The soundset is presented in the form of PDF-Document. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters worth tweaking during the playback, how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn lots of things about the synth and discover its true depth.

Each patch has audio examples, they help to understand how a patch is supposed to sound. Audio examples for a patch are presented in three variants: DFAM only, Subharmonicon only, and both together.

Drums & persussion were also designed with the Chroma, then sampled, processed and imported into Steinberg Grovve Agent. Mastering has been done with Waves L2, thats it. Enjoy the music !!"

via this auction

"8 note polyphonic synthesizer. One of only 2000 manufactured in the early 1980's, if you are interested in this one you will most probably know much more about them than me however you can read all about them if you click . The link will take you to a 27 year old article in Sound on Sound which refers to the value of a used Chroma at £1,500, those were the days, to put things into perspective a German owner recently advertised a faulty one on eBay at £15,000 so our valuation of £7,000 for a fully working model seems exceptionally fair. No offers please.

The Rhodes Chroma was never fitted with Midi during manufacture but it was possible to fit a Midi modification. When this one came in it had a fault which was caused by the Midi mod which no longer worked, during the service of the Chroma Adrian removed the faulty Midi kit and made other repairs so it is now 100% however the non-functioning midi sockets are still fitted to the unit."

"Stolperbeats is a drum trigger sequencer designed to create shuffled beats influenced by the gritty push-and pull grooves from the golden age of Hiphop."

"Drum trigger sequencer designed to create shuffled offgrid beats

Stolperbeats, roughly translating to 'beats tripping over themselves', is a drum trigger sequencer designed to create shuffled beats influenced by the gritty push-and-pull grooves from the golden age of Hiphop.

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 you would, in the past, painstakingly nudge together in a DAW.

We will be introducing Stolperbeats at Superbooth in Berlin, 12-14 May 22.
The module will be be available mid June in select modular stores and directly from us."
