Each of Cicada has two ways to change pre-fabricated sound: by a potentiometer and by photo~resistor .. Different Cicadas can be connected to each other and mix their sounds directly, without a sound mixer .. In addition, also, it is possible to make more complex noise~sound~design and connect into Cicadas prepared modules from children's toys ..

"(Note: These are some of the songs played originally in Pasadena Rose Bowl, not the whole setlist).
It was 7 pm in Spain when I realized it is Depeche Mode 101 anniversary. Then, I quickly set something: a live streaming playing some songs from that gig. No time to rehearsal or prepare anything; just practised a few times some song and this is what we got.

Thanks everyone joining the chat. It was fun to share this with you!."

Chilled, Generative Eurorack on the living room floor...

video upload by Electronisounds Audio

"This is my entry for the Hardware Jams Facebook Group weekly challenge.
The idea is to make a jam and GET IT DONE in a short amount of time.

This week's challenge theme was 'Freedom / Breaking Free'.
I broke free of the studio, and setup a little Eurorack patch in the middle of the living room! Haha

Jam Date: 06/18/2022
Tempo: 112bpm
Key: Ummmmmm...? I tuned all 3 oscillators to a 'B', but then ran them all through an Fminor Pentatonic scale quantizer - Haha, does that just make it Eminor, then?

Whatever kind of music you are making - KEEP IT UP, Friends!
Don't stop making *YOUR MUSIC*!!"

Doepfer A-126-2 Frequency Shifter and Trautonium

video upload by Vykaar Tones

"First try out of the new A-126-2 Frequency Shifter on the output of my ribbon controlled Trautonium. Signal route in to A-138n mixer is A-111 VCO2 sine output, A110 sawtooth, A110 square wave to A-163 VDIV frequency divider and A-118 white noise. Output of A-138n goes to A-104 Trautonium Formant Filter and from that to A-131 VCA controlled by pressure CV from A-198 Trautonium Ribbon Controller. The A-126-2 audio in comes from the VCA and the output goes to mixer with reverb and delays. Random CV from A-118 is occasionally added to control the pitch of the A126-2 oscillator."

Grainbient with Path Set in VCV Rack / Granular Bliss

video upload by Omri Cohen

"I really fell in love with the Path Set collections for VCV Rack. Lots of granular, sampling, and processing :) Anyway, I'm using Janso from Felt Instruments, Vult Opulus, and more as sound sources, playing and recording them live into various modules from Path Set.

Have a look here if you're interested in these collections -"

KORG KROSS 2 Program Mode - Suck or Success?

video upload by Woody Piano Shack

"Let's leave those impressive Combi sounds for a while and explore the simple Program presets of the KORG KROSS 2 SYNTHESIZER MUSIC WORKSTATION to see if they are any good.

These are the most important sounds I might actually use when creating my own compositions, piano, organ, electric piano, rhodes, bass, pads, strings, drums and other keyboard and synth sounds."
