HexoSynth Modular Synthesizer - Dev Sample 2022-06-30

video upload by Weird Constructor

"HexoSynth is a modular synthesizer that features a large hexagonal grid for placing DSP nodes/modules and connecting them along the edges. Connections between the nodes/modules is done without cables.

In this video I'm demonstrating the live signal views, the small LEDs in the cells and the flickering edges between the cells. That was todays milestone for me. Please bear with the ugly piece of music, it's just for demonstration purposes and I could not dial in a proper key, because the keyboard widget for the quantizer has not been finished yet.

HexoSynth is a free software / open source project, that is in development since 2021. You can follow it's development in my devlogs on my homepage:


via Github

"This project aims to create a modular synthesizer plugin (VST3, CLAP). Like those encountered in projects like VCVRack or Bitwig's Grid.

The core idea is having a hexagonal tile map for laying out module instances and connect them at the edges to route audio signals and control signals to inputs of other modules.

A goal is to provide a simple wireless environment to build sound effects, synthesizers or whole generative music patches from predefined modules.

Hosting plugins (VST, LV2, ...) is out of the scope of this project. The goal is rather to have a good set of predefined modules."

"!This Product Only Working With Original Hardware M1 & M1R Synths.
Not working with M1 VST Version & iM1 app !

Welcome to the second chapter of organic & motion sounds for almighty Korg M1 synthesizer!

After successful Korg Wavestation series we've got in our hands one of the most iconic workstations of 90s - the M1

It sounds fantastic but many of the sounds was overused in years & we didnt find any modern recreations around the globe.

So we made a challenge to ourselfs - made analog style patches with modern vision & also re-create classic ambient sounds.

Nick Klimenko continuing cinematic series with 50 brand new handcrafted presets ready to go in your tracks!

Synthwave, Original Soundtrack, Ambient, Retrowave - our sounds will inspire you on new creations!"

Yamaha SY-1 Solo Synth SN 1740

Yamaha SY-1 | Yamaha’s First Portable Analog Synth | Part of the GX1 and CS80 Lineage
video upload by Alamo Music Audio Lab

"Today, Zach is taking a look at the Yamaha SY-1, a unique synthesizer straight out of the 70's Yamaha organ craze. From the lineage that brought you the all-time great CS-80, the SY-1 is a preset-heavy analog synthesizer that was created and used for lead lines and all kinds of nostalgic tones. Take a look and a listen and tell us what you think!

Sounds start at 6:54"

via this auction

"The first portable synth that Yamaha ever made!
Features the same sound engine as the legendary flagship CS-80 and GX-1 synths, albeit a monophonic primitive version. Also features aftertouch (probably also a first) that can be switched to control vibrato, pitch bend, filter, and volume. The presets are really amazing and go from Vangelis to 70s porn film soundtracks to Toto to Parliament Funkadelic to Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the flick of a switch! (John Williams used its successor, the SY-2, for the famous "Ba Di Da Buh Da"- the SY-2 apparently only had more envelope and filter controls and was otherwise sonically identical.)
Please see the Youtube link for an in-depth sound demo."

Crumar Performer SN 03114 w/ Custom Black Faceplate

via this auction

"Just serviced at Outliner Audio in Chicago, this Performer is fully functional to it's former glory. Keybed plays exceptional well. Except we could not allocate a Brass Attack Pot replacement. As shown, the face plate has been repainted long ago with new labels added. Likely due to rust or paint flaking which was notorious for the Crumar."

Korg Preset 900ps Synthesizer

"This is an early Korg Preset 900ps; it may be a beta model as it has no serial and the formatting looks different than most 900ps. It has Korg 700 fader caps, with a few missing. It sounds great but some sliders may crackle when moving. It is a very unique sounding instrument perfect for a tinkerer or collector!"

Tasty Chips Electronics - ECR+

video upload by SchneidersLaden

"This video is a simple presentation of some of the sounds we came across while exploring the ECR+ by Tasty Chips Electronics. There is definitely much more to discover and we look forward to hearing your creations with the ECR+. We have one in our showroom, if you're in town, stop by and check it out.

Tasty Chips have been known for their GR-1 Granular Sampler for years. With their first Eurorack product they have brought something new to the table. Probably the first Stereo Convolution Reverb for Eurorack - the ECR+.

The module is more than just a plain reverb effect. One of the most distinctive features is the ability to load two impulse responses at once, between which you can then crossfade with a knob or by CV. The position of the impulse response, the stereo width and a few other parameters can also be controlled by CV to create even more interesting effects. This, plus the fact that you can load your own impulse responses into the module and even record on it, makes the ECR+ a great tool for sound design and unheard sounds."

Further Explorations // Verbos Scan & Pan + XAOC Devices Timiszoara, Odessa, Batumi and Zadar

video upload by Genshi Media Group


Further explorations with the Verbos Electronics Scan & Pan mixer and the XAOC Devices Timiszoara, Odessa, Batumi, and Zadar. The Scan & Pan is turning out to be a pretty amazing module as it Scans through the three channels featuring the Odessa's Odd, Even, and Fundamental outputs (and Pans channel three which is Odessa's Fundamental.) Couple that with the Timiszoara for effects and the modulation on the Odessa, makes for some really interesting sound!. Sequencing provided by the Intellijel Metropolix. Modulation from Batumi and Zadar which is also providing the Envelopes for Channel 1 and 2 of the Verbos."

Moog Matriarch Music Box Ambient Patch

video upload by riotbell

"This is another oversaturated delay patch with the Matriarch.
Running a basic repetitive sequence in attempt to simulate a music box or perhaps old fashion carousel music.

Maybe this is pleasant lullaby music or something that might help someone study.

Note: the patch cable connecting the 2nd LFO and the 2nd attenuator serves no function and was left connected by mistake.

Thanks for listening."

Moog Mother-32 + Mutable Instruments Warps | and some thoughts about Mavis

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Mavis has been on all significant YouTube channels last week and I've been super impressed by the sounds coming from this little DIY starter synth. I really felt the 'gear aquisition syndrome' hitting hard. But I already own tons of modules, so I wanted to take good old Mother-32, hook it up with Warps and see how 'westcoast' it can get. I decided to skip Mavis and go for the Subharmonicon instead (coming soon) because it's very different from anything I know.

But it was tough (I had it in my shopping cart), because Mavis can add a lot to a bare table, and even more to an existing Moog 60 HP tableltop set. It's a really clever design. To give you and impression I hooked up the M-32 to 0-Coast, the 'other' tabletop westcoast starter synth from MakeNoise. I still think I'd get a Mavis when the hype is over because it adds a lot to the classic Mother and vice versa."
