New X Audio Systems BEATS FM - Live Demos

video uploads by

Two new demos and a slimmer profile. Follow-up to this post.

Additional pics and details via the Indiegogo campaign.

"The BEATS FM is a project that started in 2020 and has gone through 4 revisions. Built out of pure passion by our team in Italy, it’s an experimental all-in-one stereo synthesizer and audio processor, with a warm analog sound and many sync options. Designed for exploring and designing new sounds and noise textures for studio or for live performance. Packed with modulating, sync and processing power. Complete analog audio path, with the addition of a digital delay. The equivalent of 8 modules enclosed in an elegant, high-quality beech/aluminum case with an antenna.

We want to give everybody the possibility to participate in the creation of this unique machine. We feel that the world needs new options when it come to music production and sound exploration. The spontaneous and versatile nature of the BEATS FM, together with it's warm analog sound is designed to be a center piece to a number of music studios worldwide.

This is the first ever production run of this unit, and nobody knows if there will be further developments in the future. It all depends on the support that all the backers will bring to this project. Our goal is to produce as many units as possible. Satisfaction of every backers is our main priority. Thanks to you, this project is already a reality! Every backer will receive a one-of-a-kind, hand-assembled, individually numbered, limited edition BEATS FM with power supply, antenna and user's manual."

Com Truise: The Crumar Bit One in 'Ultrafiche of You'

video upload by Soundfly

Note: MATRIXSYNTH readers can use the MATRIXSYNTH20 code for 20% off Soundfly courses.

"Watch producer Seth Haley, aka Com Truise, break down the inspiration and production behind his 2019 hit 'Ultrafiche of You.' Keep learning in his full-length course, exclusively available on Soundfly at

About the Video:

In 'Ultrafiche of You,' Com Truise took inspiration from an Italian polyphonic analog synth, the Crumar Bit One. He used the Crumar for almost every part of the song — including the main melody, counter melodies, and as samples — adding effects, tweaking the patch, and chopping and reversing sounds to get as much variation as he could from it. The result is a deep exploration and meditation on a single instrument and sound source.

Here, Com Truise opens up the track in Ableton Live and plays each section of the song to show how he processed the sounds and used the synth to create the song's "flowing atmosphere."

About the Course:

Combining a nostalgic reverence for ‘80s drum machines and production techniques with a futuristic sensibility, Com Truise has been building intricate musical worlds that are hypermodern and yet emotionally familiar for over a decade.

In this course, you’ll discover how Com Truise produces music that is both textural and driving, awash in retro drum sounds and thick clouds of synthesizers. You’ll follow along as he creates a brand new track from scratch, and opens up the sessions to some of his most popular songs, giving you a unique look at how he approaches synthesis, drum machine programming, production, gear, and more.

Whether you’re an aspiring synthwave artist or simply someone in need of inspiration and constraints for your next musical project, this in-depth course will help you add an otherworldly quality to your music. Sign up here:

This course is exclusively available as part of Soundfly's course subscription, where you can access dozens of in-depth, high-quality courses on topics ranging from songwriting to producing, mixing to beatmaking, and so much more. Subscribe today to get learning:"

"After a period of thinking it through, I decided to purchase a Novation Summit synth (I have no regrets despite the price). I’m very excited and it will become the most important gear in my studio."

Sequential Take 5 demo

video upload by Hunart©

"Thanks to my friend Sensor I've had a chance to play the Take 5 synth by Sequential for a few hours. Not much, but very inspiring. As usual, no external FX, EQ or compression, just a limiter (D16 Frontier) on the whole material. "

Sequential Prophet-10 Demo

video upload by Hunart©

"Thanks to my friend Sensor (you can find the link below the description) I've had a chance to play the mighty Prophet 10 by Sequential. As usual, no external FX, EQ or compression, just a limiter (D16 Frontier) on the whole material. I'm mainly playing sequences, tried to pull out some different sounds from bass, brasses and leads."

Sequential Prophet X Demo

video upload by Hunart©

"Finally I`ve got my hands on a Prophet X. Honestly, this is one of the best sounding synths out there, and I`m glad I could try one out.
I`ve made 4 mini tracks in a short time, and tried to capture a bit different purpose of the synth, hoping that I can show the basic capabilities of the synth too.

There`s no EQ, compression and external FX, just some limiting on the whole material. Feel free to ask any questions."

Pro 3 & Hydrasynth :: Synchronized Sequencing

video upload by experimentalsynth

"Here I sequenced the Hydrasynth with Ableton's Ma4Live Mono Sequencer while syncing the Pro 3's sequencer to Ableton's clock. Both synthesizers use clock-synced internal effects and both are run through a clock-synced Line 6 Echo Pro. Learn more at"

This panel has different features including LPGs, delays and reverb. With Ongaku you will create new sonic worlds from cavernous soundscapes to vibrant generative pads in the style of Eno’s, to unpredictable noises or super bongo action west coast style… It is so organic that it feels alive. See for yourself how the probabilistic clock can create amazing strange rhythms.

"Playtime Engineering, the leader in simplifying electronic music play for all, announces the Blipblox SK2 and Blipblox myTRACKS music production devices.

The Blipblox SK2 is the newest addition to the Blipblox synthesizer line. The SK2 is designed for kids ages 8-14. It provides all of the free-play fun of the Blipblox Synth for Kids, plus some sophisticated synth tools found in the Blipblox After Dark.

The Blipblox myTRACKS is an easy-to-use, 5-track groovestation designed specifically for kids. Features such as 48 real instrument sounds, built-in microphone for audio sampling, and two FX processors make this an advanced music device. But just like all other Blipblox products, it is engineered so that anyone can create multi-tracked songs right out of the box.

Both products are portable with batteries and a built-in speaker so you can take your creativity anywhere.

We’ll be showcasing both devices at The NAMM Show 2022, June 3-5. We hope you’ll stop by to play at booth #10900."

Roland JUNO-60 vs Arturia JUN-6V comparison (no talking)

video upload by Hunart©

"Just a few basic sounds to compare the JUN-6V with a JUNO-60 (unfortunately I couldn`t manage to get a JUNO-6), without any FX, EQ or compression. I tried to get as close as possible but its not an easy task to get the same setting with almost 40 years old faders. Anyway, I think it`s really close and Arturia made a very good job."

Waldorf M demo

video upload by Hunart©

"Hi Everyone!

Thanks to the polish distributor of Waldorf I could do a quick soundcheck of the Waldorf M synthesizer via mainly modified and own patches. Pretty little wavetable thing... I've used a little EQ (for the really low end) and a limiter on the whole material, beside of that no further EQ or external FX were used. Every sound comes from the Waldorf M and was recorded track by track in to Ableton."

Waldorf Kyra Demo

video upload by Hunart©

"A quick soundcheck of the Kyra from Waldorf, again, thanks to Audiotech. Every sound comes from the Kyra and was recorded in to Ableton Live. As usual there`s no compression, EQ or External FX. Just a limiter on the whole material."

"Again, thanks to the polish distributor Audiotech I`ve had a chance to try out Iridium from Waldorf. Every sound comes from the Iridium and there`s no EQ, compression or external FX, just a limiter on the whole material."
