M8 on the treadmill (5 minutes w/ Dirtywave Tracker)

video upload by Chris Hunt

"You are walking... on a treadmill... and all you want to do is get off the thing...
FIVE... more... minutes.

00:00 Select your speed
00:21 The first step
00:46 NINE
01:23 Re-tie your shoes
01:53 Second set, here we go
02:09 Walker's high
02:20 NINE
02:46 Sweat in your eyeballs
03:25 Ok, just a few more steps folks
03:54 NINE
04:08 Bonus minute, it's pizza night
04:48 Thank god, shower time

All tracks are different lengths. Some are in 6/8 and some 4/4. Everything just keeps looping in an unpredictable way (to me). You call it a polyrhythm, I call it a never-ending walk on the treadmill."

3am - ARP 2600 FS and Audity One

video upload by justin3am

"In this video I'm playing my ARP 2600 through an Audity One recording amp from Curious Audio.

The 2600's balanced output is connected to the Audity One's transformer balanced line input. The mics I'm using are a 414 and an SE VR-1 ribbon mic through a pair of 1073 preamp clones. This amp is ideal for re-amping synths or anything really because of it's broad frequency spectrum and surprisingly low noise floor. This patch is using relatively little of the Audity One's available gain, just to illustrate the character of the amp. I hope to do some more extreme sounds when I can really let it rip!"

Critter & Guitari - Freeze Patch for Organelle

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Download Freeze Patch here:
Record short audio samples and infinitely loop them.
Slow things way down with four different freeze methods:
Latch Mode uses a foot switch (or the aux key) to freeze at your discretion. The sound will be frozen until your next foot switch press.
Envelope Mode has additional controls for attack and release - so your frozen sounds rise and fall.
Auto Latch uses the incoming audio’s amplitude to control when it freezes. When sound level crosses a threshold, that audio is frozen until the next time the threshold is crossed. Here, the footswitch cancels the freeze.
AutoEnvelope also uses the audio’s own amplitude to control when it freezes, but features the attack and release controls for additional automation.
The keyboard transposes the frozen sound so that you may play the frozen sound on its own. Furthermore, transposing the freeze with the keyboard allows you harmonize with your external instrument.

BONTEMPI BT-705 CIRCUIT BENT / SOUND TEST (a small synthesizer with big potential)

video upload by Parlee

"We present a test of the BONTEMPI brand synthesizer, model BT-705, with a custom modification of CIRCUIT BENT.

Signal chain (dry test version)
Bontempi BT-705 - Apogee Element 88 - Ableton 11 Live

Signal chain (with external reverb and delay)
Bontempi BT-705 - Apogee Element 88 - Ableton 11 Live - Valhalla Shimmer / Arturia Delay Eeternity

The first part shows the sound of the synthesizer itself without effects, the second focuses on the creative use of the BT-705 with external effects, in this case reverb and delay.

Oberheim SEM vs GForce SEM - Is the 2022 software a match for the analog counterpart?

video upload by Friendly Noise

A comparison between the modern Oberheim SEM module and the GForce SEM software.

Raw recording. No effects or processing added.

Video sections:

00:11 Introduction
00:41 01 Sawtooth waves, closed tuned for phase cancellation
02:00 02 Square wave with long attack and release time
03:05 03 Square wave, PWM by LFO
03:37 04 Same as 03 but with two square waves, closed tuned for phase cancellation
04:34 05 Two sawtooth waves, low notes, 75% resonance
05:20 06 Same as 05 but with some VCO detuning to get a fatter sound
06:37 07 Square wave, PWM and LP/HP cutoff modulation by LFO
07:42 08 Two square waves, VCO2-PWM and LP/HP cutoff modulation by LFO
08:26 09 Square wave, HP cutoff modulation by LFO
09:21 10 Two square waves, PWM and HP modulation by LFO, fastest LFO rate
10:09 11 Square wave, BP filter, slow attack
11:10 12 Square wave, PWM by LFO at highest rate, BP filter
11:56 13 Saw wave, 100% resonance, BP cutoff modulated by LFO, slowest LFO rate
13:19 14 Square wave, BP filter, 100% resonance on GForce, less than 100% resonance on Oberheim
14:33 15 Same as 14, but Oberheim SEM filter gets into selfoscillation with 100% resonance
15:32 16 No VCO output, but still sound from the filter oscillation on the Oberheim SEM
15:55 17 Warm brassy single saw with no resonance
16:38 18 Same as 17 but with 100% resonance
17:16 19 Square wave with clean bright sound
17:58 20 Sync sound
18:50 21 A dark sound with LP filter and a little HP added for extra harmonics
19:59 22 Audio range filter modulation using VCO2 (Oberheim) or VCO3 (GForce), filter cutoff knob turned to the left.
20:53 23 Same as 23 but filter cutoff is now halfway open
21:51 24 Dark sound with VCO1 as fundamental and some VCO2 for added high frequencies
22:51 25 Clean sequence sound with PWM of VCO1 and some extra VCO2 in the high frequencies
23:34 26 Clean sequence with high keys
24:19 27 Last sequence with old school sound
25:20 28 My two cents
