DB-01 does acid (no talking)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"I love reading comments and on a recent video 'Alfie John' commented on the lack of 303-style Acid demos for the DB-01. That sounded like a challenge to me so here's my attempt. The title of this video "DB-01 does acid" is very definite but whether the sound is really acid I leave up tp you. There's also the question of whether the DB-01, with its Polvoks filter, can achieve an "authentic" acid sound in place of the 24db LPF on the 303. And of course someone who actually composes acid music would surely get closer than I have here.

Assuming that you've got past all these excuses and actually like the sound, here are a few relevant points on recreating it:
- Both envelopes are on zero. This is especially important for the Amp envelope.
- The LFO is on S&H tempo sync on and set to 1 (for slight variation on every hit)
- The pattern itself has various gate times from 20 to 100
- The Env amount must be low otherwise it'll overwhelm the bandpass filter
- The Arp control that I manually change is the gate length
- I always have a cable from the CV out to the cutoff CV in to provide tracking
Other settings should be reasonably clear from the video.

Another recent comment (on the One pattern, 20 sounds video) said that all the DB-01 sounds were terrible because they were distorted. In that case I can expect an even more disappointed comment here :D

And another recent comment said they preferred the sounds without effects - but here I've added delay to almost the whole thing :/ My excuse for that is I just bought the DM-2W delay and I love it! It takes line level beautifully.

Finally, there is absolutely no further processing than what you see here, not even a master limiter.

This was supposed to be a video, but my web cam died as I was recording it. Then, I ran into technical difficulties with windows movie maker, so I couldn't even add labels to the patches. Sorry. Anyway, this update is free for my existing customers, $30 for the whole set for my new customers. Write me for details at

The Ultimate Pattern Generator: Acid Rain Technology's Constellation w/ Ryan Hume

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Acid Rain Technology co-owner Ryan Hume gives us a thorough presentation on the incredibly versatile, performative, and fun pattern generator: Constellation.

Learn more about the Constellation here:

Constellation is all about rhythm. It is an 8-channel pattern generator that works by combining multiple dense and sparse patterns to create long, complex and musically interesting trigger and gate rhythms. Constellation takes a 'parametric' approach to rhythm - there is no explicit step sequencing on the module, rather the rhythms are defined by euclidean (and more) parameters that build the rhythm mathematically.

Constellation aims to evolve the concept of euclidean rhythms far beyond the useful but repetitive patterns we often think of when we hear the term "euclidean rhythm". We accomplish this by combining up to 8 individual euclidean patterns of different lengths and density. Each pattern may provide only a small component of the final output, but together create immensely musical and varied rhythmic material over a very long time frame - up to 999 steps! If each of those steps are 1/16 note in length at 120 bpm, that's a full 2 minutes of explicitly defined, yet non repeating rhythmic material.

In addition, Constellation's parametric approach allows any of these parameters to be modulated with CV through one of 8 freely assignable CV inputs. CV modulation introduces further ability for Constellation's rhythmic output to vary over time. Paired with a Maestro or Navigators, hours of interesting morphing rhythms are possible without the need for tons of step programming or the uncontrollable chaos of a purely generative approach.

When writing music, rhythmic interest is often built through the combination of repeating and non repeating elements that work together to anchor the overall feel but also keep the ear free from boredom over the duration of the piece. We feel that Constellation provides a unique set of tools to accomplish this goal and achieve rhythms that are intentional, unexpected and exciting to use as the foundation of your compositions.

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"Interesting synth from Moog that was made for Radioshack. Its kind of based on the Rogue synthesizer but with some pretty unique differences. It still has 2 VCOs, a ring modulator (bell tone) and a the classic Moog Ladder Filter...but the MG-1 also adds a polyphonic voice section!

This synth was just serviced in-house (refurbished sliders, recapped and calibrated), ready to go!"
