Charade (Experimental Music & Film Remix)

video upload by CatSynth TV

"Experimental music video featuring scenes from the film Charade starring Audrey Hepburn.

Charade was a 1963 "romantic comedy mystery film" produced and directed by Stanley Donen; it also starred Cary Grant in addition to Hepburn. Because of an error by Universal Pictures it immediately entered the public domain in the United States, and can be found on the Internet Archive and elsewhere.

The visuals are processed using the 3TrinsRGB+1c video synthesizer with the E350 Morphing Terrarium by Synthesis Technology as a CV controller. The original synthesizer music was inspired by Henry Mancini's original soundtrack for the film, and features the following instruments:
Sequential Prophet 12
Strymon StarLab reverb module
AudioThing Wires
Arturia Bus Force"

"No talking demo of UDO Audio Super 6. All patches custom-made by Jexus. I did not use any external FX in the demo; all the delays, noises and other effects are part of the Super-6 engine & mod matrix. I recorded my demo straight through an audio card. This is a standard factory unit - you don't need any custom wavetables or add-ons for the patches to work."

Dreadbox Typhon Demo

video upload by Hunart©

"Hi Everyone!

Thanks to my friend Sensor (you can find the link below the description) I've had a chance to finally try out Typhon from Dreadbox. It was a two day session and one day my daughter wanted to smash the cutoff knob, so this is her favorite synth now... And I think mine too in that price range. Really cute messy box ;) As usual, no external FX, EQ or compression, just a limiter (D16 Frontier) on the whole material."

Sounds of Synth - Ceremony // #hardwarejams // Sequential PRO 3

video upload by Sounds of Synth

"Hey hey hey!!

Its a Hardware Jam Challenge. Read on for the challenge and story so far!!

The story so far:
Your car is stuck in the woods with a flat tyre, you've gone to a pub for help. There are 3 guys there: an Enthusiastic guy; an Angry guy and a Sleepy guy.
You decide to get them all to come and help as not to offend any of them. You buy everyone a drink and then you all leave the pub. As you head out of the door, the bartender calls out with a worried look on his face, "Be careful, it's the Queen's Jubilee".
You shrug - how bad can it be - a few flags and bunting?
Eventually the four of you arrive back at the car. To your surprise it is covered with wildflowers and woven twig decorations. Weird. You hear a branch snap behind you - you turn to look at the others - Sleepy Guy has disappeared.
You double back to try to find him - maybe he lay down for a nap somewhere? Suddenly, you hear a terrifying scream. You spin round to see Enthusiastic Guy being dragged through the trees by something, screaming and thrashing as he disappears into the undergrowth.
You and Angry Guy exchange a horrified look. WTF is going on? Angry guy reaches into his jacket and pulls out a massive knife.
"Let's go," he mutters, striding in the direction that Enthusiastic was taken.
Heart pounding you hesitate for a moment, then follow him.
The woods are dark and quiet, all you hear are your footsteps crunching through the undergrowth.
You keep your eyes on Angry Guy, the last thing you want is to be alone in this forest.
As you struggle to keep up with Angry Guy, he suddenly plunges out of view, through the ground. You stop abruptly, at the edge of a massive hole. You can just make out Angry Guy at the bottom of the pit. He's not moving. The moon emerges from behind the clouds and to your horror, you see the Angry Man is impaled on a series of spikes that protrude from his stomach, his legs, his neck.
Instinct takes over and you run, trying to remember which direction the pub was. You see lights up ahead and head towards them as fast as you can.
You emerge from the woods - but it's not the pub. You enter a clearing, filled with hooded figures, holding flaming torches. You see Sleepy Guy and Enthusiastic Guy, stripped naked and tied to posts with binds of thorns. At their feet are bundles of twigs and kindling.
You are frozen with fear.
Two more hooded figures drag the body of Angry Man into the clearing and lash him to another post, stacking firewood at the base.
A tall figure, wearing a mask of a skull steps forward.
"Greetings." he speaks in a menacing voice.
"You have come to join us as we celebrate the Forest Queen's Eternal Jubilee. Play a song that will honour her or you will join your friends in a more dreadful sacrifice to her."
You realise, everything counts on this jam - as it may well be your last...

EMS Synthi Custom Patches

video upload by Hollo Digi Design

"A few custom patches on the EMS Synthi. Unfortunately this isn't my personal unit, but after spending a few hours on it, I wish I had the money (or a kidney not being used)!

No external effects were used (although most sounds do have some slight compression via the very transparent FMR RNC 1773).
Sounds were recorded into a Zoom H6.
No post processing or mastering was used (apologies on level changes etc.).

Some things I’ve learned about the EMS Synthi (and by extension all the models - the A, AKS and VCS3 synthesizers):
The internal drive of the machine is extremely musical - reminds me a bit of the Moog Grandmother or Sub Phatty series. The only difference is that it's possible to push the mixer on separate waveforms within each OSC, then have those routed almost anywhere - the feedback loops are, INCREDIBLE!
Trying to get get musical scales from the keyboard across more than a few octaves is difficult to say the least (not just because this particular unit was very susceptible to drift). I ended up just tweaking without the keyboard in the end.
The OSC pots are the best pots I've ever used for OSC tweaking hands down! Why aren't these on absolutely everything?! If the Behringer clone (not yet released at the time of this video) doesn't have these pots at a similar quality it's a travesty.
And finally, I think I'm going to struggle to buy another synth that doesn't have the option to route OSCs to bypass the filter after spending time with this - looking at you Pro 4 (if one is ever released of course).

Manufacturers installed the components to make the Ladder Filter before Moog Music imposed a patent on it's use in non Moog instruments.' Some cosmetic damage(you can see on photos).

Roland MC-202 Micro Composer Analog Synthesizer with Kenton Socket Mod

via this auction

"Fabulous analogue sequencer and synthesizer. For me its main strength is as a desktop SH101..LFO not quite as featured and no noise but it’s effectively a SH101 with a MC4 2 channel sequencer added! This has the added Kenton MOD which adds CV & gate (& filter) that bypasses the internal sequencer. Why is this important seeing as the MC202 already has some CV/gate sockets?? Well, the factory CV/Gate sockets are great for connecting to other synths in order to control them with the MC202 Sequencer. However, if you want to use the MC202 synth with an external sequencer it doesn’t; work so well and it is a little laggy as everything has to go via the MC202 in built sequencer brain which is probably 1kb! Kenton made this mod specifically so you can controller the MC202 synth engine from an external source. I used it with a SQ1 and Analogue Solutions Mega City step sequencer - much easier than the in built one!!!! Having said that the inbuilt sequencer is powerful once you get your head around it - 2 channels of CV/gate out and clock out and DIN sync out."

Nice simple 1 Osc synth but sill has some unique features over even a CS10 - S&H for one! Somebody also incorrectly described this as a CS01 with full size keys - so wrong! Noise, Multimode analogue filer (BP/HP/LP), PWN, Noise, external input and LFO that can go to VCA, filter, Osc. Nice synth and lovely vintage sound."

Velocity & Aftertouch - How to control VCA/LFO/VCF with the MiniMod Eurorack Modular Synth

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Some ideas and basic procedure for using keyboard velocity and aftertouch with the AJH Synth modular system. This can add a lot of expressiveness to your patches, all that's required is a keyboard controller that outputs these functions, whether it be a CV-equipped controller, or a MIDI/USB controller connected via a Midi to CV converter.

This video shows velocity being used to control VCA volume, aftertouch controlling LFO/vibrato amount, and both controlling filter frequency, but since this is modular these control signals can be used to manipulate pretty much anything that has a CV input. In some cases using it with the CV Mix will be particularly helpful to adjust the range of the controller's output to suit the intended target, allowing the CV to be simultaneously amplified, offset, inverted, and/or combined with other CV's.

I'm using an Arturia Keystep, which has a 'Mod' CV output - this can be configured in software to output either velocity, aftertouch, or the position of the 'mod wheel' touch strip.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for more 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides detailing a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, and each containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

video upload by sonicstate

"Animal Factory Amplification make loud and alive pedals and Eurorack modules that embrace warmth, overdrive and delicious harmonic ruin.

Aditya told us that AFA have spent the past year re-designing their entire range, building an ecosystem of modules that work together and can patch internally. and are now finally able to share some of them with the world at NAMM.

Among the modules Aditya showed us was the prototype of Tannhauser Gates, a Quad VCA Mixer gives us 4 VCAs each with tilt eq, panning, and stereo send, return and stereo out, but it can also send and receive channels from up to 3 other Tannhauser units via internal patching, creating an expandable mixing system.

We also met up with Bonesaw VCF with individual lowpass, bandpass and highpass outputs, CV control over cutoff, FM amount and resonance. A pre-filter drive beefs up your signal, and with resonance cranked way up, it can be used as a super-screamy oscillator.
