video upload by GEOSynths

"Out Soon.
Back with another Bank of 80 Patches for the Sequential Prophet 5 & 10. This time, it's a little more harder, little more experimental at times, but still with that fantastic Prophet Sound.

I've made FX Presets to go along with all 80 Patches, so you can reproduce everything you hear in the video. There are 2 Free Plug-ins which are available for both Mac and PC.

1 - Blue Cat Audio Chorus -
2. Valhalla Supermassive -

All you need to do is insert the Blue Cat Chorus, then Supermassive and match up the Patch Numbers...That's it.

They will be out soon on the following page, which already has Prophecy Vol 1 -

Angry Robot 1.0 DEMO. Recursive Bytebeat Synthesis. Available in Stores.


"[Please note that the only source of audio is the Angry Robot, but it has been slighly processed in the modular to give stereo effect and a bit of filtering]

Angry Robot: Recursive Bytebeat Synthesis

Angry Robot is a new firmware for the Glitch Storm MK2. It expands on the concept of bytebeats with a whole new buch of technics that reach new sounds altogether, ranging from drones, to rhythms, polyrhythms, robot bablings, malfunctions and all kind of gliches that remind of primitive game consoles but somehow sounding totally new and futuristic.

Angry robot at the moment is closed source and you can get it as an arduino preprogramed microcontroller, to expand your previous Glitch Storm MK2 hardware or with a brand new Glitch Storm MK2.

Its available here:

And soon in Etsy too"

The press release:

"Meet Mavis: The Newest Addition to the Moog Semi-Modular Family
Mavis, a new all-analog semi-modular synthesizer, delivers legendary Moog sound in an affordable and compact musical machine. An inspiring and expressive instrument, Mavis offers serious value to anyone looking to learn synthesis or explore Moog sound in a new way.

This build-it-yourself synthesizer kit is ready to come to life as a powerful, patchable analog instrument, either mounted in a Eurorack case or on its own. Mavis's intuitive design allows for immediate musical exploration (no patching required) and is ready to guide your journey through the expansive world of modular synthesis through its flexible patch bay and accompanying educational resources.

Mavis features the first-ever Moog wavefolding circuit, allowing for additive synthesis to sit alongside traditional subtractive synthesis, unlocking sounds never heard before on a Moog instrument. Mavis offers incredible value through its clever collection of circuits, including two oscillators, full ADSR, a ladder filter, sample and hold, attenuators, mixer, mults, and much more, providing all the tools needed for creative patching and sound design.

Mavis delivers huge depth of sound to any creative looking to begin their journey into synthesis, expand their Moog ecosystem, or enhance their Eurorack setup."

Additional details & pics:

"As one of their most affordable semi-modular synthesizers to date, Moog's Mavis is equally at home as a standalone instrument, companion to the Mother series, or active member of a bustling Eurorack system. Shipped as an easily assembled kit, the excitement of putting together your own instrument gives way to a wonderful journey of sonic exploration.

Mavis packs all of the essential elements of a full synthesis voice into a compact package—oscillator, filter, ADSR envelope generator, and VCA—as well as some special surprises, including Moog's first-ever wavefolder! Best of all, everything is accessible through 24 patch points, overriding the internal normalled connections and putting Mavis's signal flow under your control.

As with all Moog's best synths, Mavis begins with an all-analog VCO, with this particular design featuring a blend control crossfading between sawtooth and pulse waveforms. PWM and pitch modulation are available with independent level controls, and may be shaped by the LFO, envelope generator, or a mix of the two. The hallmark of any Moog synth, the resonant lowpass ladder filter, makes an appearance on Mavis, and may be similarly controlled with the LFO and/or envelope with positive or negative polarity. As for the VCA, leave it wide open for drones or shape it with the ADSR for lush swells or snappy plucks.

Mavis subscribes to the same modular philosophies as Moog's legacy instruments as well as their hit Mother series. With the 24-point patch bay, additional elements are available to coax more interesting patches out of Mavis. Split and distribute signals with the multiple, inject uncertainty with the sample and hold, and balance audio or control signals with the DC-coupled mixer. Most surprising of all is the inclusion of a diode wavefolder—the first such design on any Moog instrument—bringing a touch of West Coast-style waveshaping into their world of traditionally subtractive designs.

Though Mavis can exist totally independently, it shines in collaboration with others. Place it on your desk alongside your other patchable instruments, or remove Mavis from its enclosure and mount it in a Eurorack case as a 44hp module for highly nested interactions. Mavis ships with a handful of patch cables, overlay sheets, and a protective plastic dust cover for when the instrument isn't in use. Whether you're just starting out or looking for a fully-featured Moog synth voice, Mavis delivers in spades.

Microphonic Soundbox sampling with #circuitrhythm

video upload by motobor

"This is quick demo video of the microphonic soundbox that I built for a client. It's fun to search sounds in different materials and objects and get unexpected results. Some thing sound way better than expected and some things make quite boring sound.

I know, the light batteries died by the end of the video."

Unique VCA that’s also a wave shaper, overdrive, and filter - With AtoV project cDVCA

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"The brand new AtoV project cDVCA is a module inspired by class D amplification. It can be used as a regular VCA, but the clever design makes it also suitable as oscillator, synth voice, wave shaper, overdrive, distortion, and simple filter. In short, it’s a VCA that’s actually a complex sounds design tool!

In this video I explain how the module is operated. But I mostly focus on a series of patches and audio demos using the cDVCA as synth voice, sound design tool, and audio processor.

Access Virus TI Sounds Part 4 - Self Programmed Sounds - The last sound group from the old batch

video upload by Friendly Noise

"First introduced in 1997, the Access Virus and all his following variations are without doubt one of the most iconic and used synthesizers in the 21st century. The last versions of the Virus are full of details with a real musical function, like three oscillators, three LFOs, dual multimode filters (+ comb and formant modes), great modulation matrix and effect section, FM, ring modulation, wavetable, Hypersaw (kind of Rolandish-Supersaw)… to name a few features. With that power, the Virus can cover all the basics for different kinds of musical styles. A 16 part multimode and great polyphony can deliver all the sounds you need for whole songs… providing you like the characteristic sound of the Virus. Some love it, some hate it. Was the amazing polyphony achieved at the cost of the high end? The Virus is not the brightest synth in the town, but how much do you care about that?

The sounds are illustrated with pictures of my own Virus. There is no video, because those are old recordings, made long time ago before I started recording videos. The purpose of the recordings was exclusively for personal use, a way to remember sounds I liked. Some of the recordings can be useful today in order to get familiar with the sound of the featured instruments, so I decided to upload them. In fact, no video is an advantage: you can do other things while just listening to the sounds. :-)

All sounds were programmed by myself.

00:06 Start Pad
01:27 Hypersaw
02:21 Hypersaw + Rate Reducer
04:46 Moog Style Filter
