"Recorded directly using the OB-8's own stereo panning system and some software lexicon hall reverb. No EQ or other tampering of the sound has been made, strictly pure OB-8 goodness."

Black Corp Rachael and the Pro 3: A Symbiotic Relationship (patch example)

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"In this patch, the Rachael adds an oscillator, EG, and ring mod to the Pro 3, which controls pitch, depth, and envelope stages of the Rachael."

Sequential Pro 3 and Black Corp Rachael (#2)

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"This is a patch I've tried to give expressiveness with the Pro 3's modulation capabilities and the nice raw sound of the Black Corporation Rachael. The Rachael is mixed in pre-filter and also separately. Erica Synth's Black Hole DSP 2 adds some echo at the end of the chain."

Pro 3 Legato Gliss Lead: thank you for everything, Dave Smith!

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"The Pro 3's alternate gliss mode is for legato playing; the gliss only activates from one note to the next if the first note is held down. Like the opposite of percussion on an organ. This is a factory preset; I had to stop myself from making a patch because I can spend over an hour designing a sound on this synth.

Saddened by the news of Dave Smith's death but his innovations will live on everywhere"

Complex Single-Voice Sequencing

video upload by MAKEN0ISE

"Because René is a sequencer with multiple channels, we sometimes kind of default to patching it up to drive multiple voices. But this time, let’s take a look at using multiple channels of René to create a sequence for a single synth voice."

Scrotum Lab - photoRes rev 2.0

video uploads by batchas

"This was recorded during the first session of tests with my freshly made second and final revision of photoRes.

I'm focusing on how the photoRes does react to changes of light, even tiny ones and I’m very happy with the result. It’s promising.

For these tests, I'm using the Scrotum Lab portable Mini-System controlled in real-time by photoRes and I'll certainly spend more time later on to set the audio setup which goes best with it and for what I'm planning to do with it.

I built it in prevision of a performance with live visuals by Lachaviche, live drawings by Ninesz and my music."

ONE NIGHT IN SPACE -Tangerine dream cover by Graal7


video upload by KurtzMindfields

"The great master of synths, Vangelis, left us on May 17 ... apart from being a virtuoso, he was also an incredible performer, composer, improviser and melodist. To pay homage to him, I took the time to listen to my heart and compose a musical piece performed live. it was without doubt one of the most difficult sessions for me to carry out in order to preserve the spirit of the master.

Instruments : SynthR4 (arppegio1), SynthR3 (arppegio2 sync Electribe2), ARP Pro-soloist, MoogSub37 + Retro One NRSynth (winds), SE-1 Electronics Moog (bassy lead) + Hansy Mister M (China Samples) on KX88, Arturia Prophet VS / CS80 + Magix Sequoia Orchestral Ensemble on Studiologic SL73 (with sustain pedal which is so cool ... ) RIP dear Vangelis."

Four overlaid improvs with classic synth pads

video upload by ParadisoModular

"In March 2021, I decided to surround myself with keyboards (7 of them!) mostly playing classic-sounding vintage pads. These included my Nord Stage (mainly playing sounds I made - e.g., from a sampled Mantovani song - heavily processed, of course), a Korg TR-Rack and N1R (mainly stringish sounds), a Mellotron from my Emu Classic Keys, that famous 'Soundtrack' sound from my Roland MT-32, and a sawtoothy swell from my Alesis Micron (thanks NanWei for that one - it was well debuted here!). Adding to these polyphonic voices from synths I've long loved, are a couple of mono-voices, namely an echoy arpeggiating sound from my Korg Prophecy and a complex lead I patched up on my modular (controlled by the keyboard to the right of the Prophecy up top) that leverages a few PLLs, where I can adjust their tracking properties with the mod wheel and if I hold a key down longer it starts a crossfading chord from my PLL octave tracker.

Unlike most of my other posts, there is no autonomous synth patch running here - everything is directly played by me on the keyboards. I recorded several takes of this - I had no real plan, as I was just improvising and having fun, but most of the takes followed a similar contour and lasted a similar amount of time. Listening to them one at a time, they sounded a bit thin. But some months later I got the idea of just layering them atop one another - here you have four of these improve sessions mixed down to a stereo track. This worked better than I thought it would - again as the sessions had some similarity and centered somewhat around the same chord structures - it can get a little big and unwieldy in the places where I depart, but this adds variety/tension and always seems to resolve the right way. There's no dynamic mixing here - they takes are just flat added.

Of course, I shot video of these sessions too, so I figured why not overlay a bunch of them to give the feeling for how this big mix happened. Hence that's what we've got here. The video isn't necessarily aligned with the audio, but the eyes often find the correlations they are looking for nonetheless.

This sits in kind of a JoeP version of a NewAge-ish visit to space - again, a quite different from my usual autonomous patch, but I hope you find something enjoyable on this particular voyage..."
