What if Hans Zimmer had used more ambient synths on "Time" (Inception Soundtrack)

video upload by NGC0 Music

"Hans Zimmer is one of my biggest inspirations in Music, and Inception is one of my favorite movies of all time, so I've always wanted to reproduce the soundtracks of this movie. Here I "cheated" a bit, by using the original soundtrack, and pitching it down, making it slower and lower-pitched, before I started adding synthesizer layers on it. I've also processed the original sample to add a lot of ambience.

The synth I've used is the DSI OB-6, and these patches I used are all standard patches, which are among the reasons why I've bought this synth, definitely one of the best poly synths ever made"

Stranger Things - Kids (Sequential Take 5 Cover)

video upload by Elemnt

"Got the Sequential Take 5 recently to replace one of my synths, so far it does not disappoint!!

Covering the Stranger Things song “Kids” using the Take 5 only. No outboard EQ or FX added. All you hear is directly recorded from the Take 5. A great synth for sure! Well done Dave Smith on your last synth, like always (RIP 🙏)"

Night Crawler

"There’s nothing better than vintage synths and 80’s music. I was going for an 80’s film horror/sci-fi sound. The prophet is mainly driving the song with the minimoog playing bass."

Modular Synthesizer Sci-fi Drone

video upload by Ultra-Vox Studios

"Standing on the ground of our synth forefathers. Here I’ve patched my 5U/MU Modular synthesizer wall to create a dreamy sci-fi drone. It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but like a lot of times you get much better results than you anticipate when patching these behemoths. It sounds like I’m floating in space."

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"I'm so pleased to demo this cool new gadget from @BrandNewNoise. They are a small company located in Dallas, TX. I met the owner and he is a really cool guy. BTW, they did not give me this item for free or offer discounts, I paid for it with my own money. I think hours of fun are lurking inside this little box.

4th Run of Colorful MOE Analog Chorus 60 - Old Sound, New Flavors

You can find demos in previous posts here.

via Made On Earth:

"Only 35 units will be made

20 x black
5x pink
5 x gray
5x Yellow

Our Analog Chorus 60 perfectly recreates the distinctive, thick and lush spatial effect that up until now was locked inside a few Japanese synths from the previous century. Like many who have heard the original, we wondered how would this gorgeous effect sound on other instruments, Once we heard the results it was clear. So we began our mission to separate this particular chorus section and have it breathe on its own.

We’ve painstakingly matched the schematics to a modern more stable and silent power supply, sourced and tested rare components used on the original and understood what makes this circuit design stand out.

On top of that, we’ve extended its functionality beyond the original and given it dedicated pots for width control, rate, depth, and external modulation input. To top it off, we’ve given our unit a gain input stage that works great with any type of instrument."

Cool Ambient Generative Patch on the Pittsburgh EP-420 System

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!

Made this pretty complex patch the other day, and managed to record 20 minutes of it, because that is how much my computer allows to record before it crashes my computer, so 20 minutes it is. Hopefully, in the future, I will be able to create longer generative videos. For stereo effects, I am mainly using 2 Black Hole DSPs by Erica Synths, Instruo Arbhar, and Mutable Instruments Clouds.

"This video features EMEAPP's associate director (and chief knob twiddler) Vince Pupillo Jr. taking our beautiful, fully-equipped ARP 2500 system for a melodic and rhythmic ride (along with a vintage ARP 1613 Sequencer). This performance was originally recorded for Alex Ball's amazing film "Electromotive-The Story of ARP Instruments" which chronicles the timeline of Alan R. Pearlman and the company and instruments which resulted, with the crown jewel being the 2500. Enjoy the blippy bloopies!"

"Has been fully serviced, including:

-Tact switches replaced (as needed)
-New CPU board
-Two voice chips replaced (Analog Renaissance)
-Electro caps on PSU replaced
-Brand new speakers

And everything's working great. Lowest price in California for a 106 that's ready to go. :)

This model is the 106 S, which adds stereo speakers to the classic Juno 106 configuration. It is otherwise electronically and functionally identical to a run of the mill 106, but the speakers are fun."

New RYK Vector Wave Harmonic Filter

video upload by RYK Modular

"Some mellow sounds using the Vector Wave synth voice module

Demo using one bank in Polyphonic mode, oscillators set to ‘odd’ spread, harmonic filter modulated by ENV2

Sequenced by RYK M185 Sequrncer
Boss DR110 provides some support !"



Introducing the new Vector Wave from RYK Modular bringing together the awesome power of 16 oscillator FM, combined with Vector synthesis or true multi voice polyphony.

The Vector Wave is a feature packed compact Eurorack module, which can be used as a stand alone synth-voice without the need for external VCA,ENV, LFOs etc


16 oscillators, divided into 4 banks, oscillators can freely configured into series or parallel combinations for complex FM or additive synthesis

A cute Vector Joystick for morphing between oscillator banks, for cool performance timbre sweeps and sonic movement
Vectors can be recorded from the joystick and replayed from trigger sources, or animated from external or internal modulation sources

Super cool retro Big-Pixel screen, ideal for nostalgia freaks or the visually impaired

Wave Warping brings grit and aggression to the FM synthesis with oscillators continuously variable between Sine,Tri-ish Saw, Pulse waveforms

Wave Folding for subtle to extreme sonic bending

Two Envelope generators [ per voice in polyphonic modes ], and two LFOs with all controls assignable as modulation destinations

Intuitive Modulation Slot patching from external and internal sources to be routed to any parameter within the Vector Wave

30 User Voice storage spaces for storing your synth masterpieces to internal memory, enabling you to impress your friends at a later date

Thee modes of oscillator bank allocation Monophonic Vector, and Polyphonic Voice, and Multitimbral Polyphonic

MIDI input for a spaghetti-free Polyphonic setup, velocity, aftertouch and MIDI CCs avail- able as modulation sources

Slim but handsome Expander Module also available that adds 3 more V/oct and Gate inputs, for maximum mutli-voice multitimbral melodious mayhem !

08 02 22 Buchla - Vedic Scapes TimeMachine

video upload by

"Today I tested the TimeMachine for the first time.
I could not get rid of a kind of modulation in the audio signal at the output, no matter how the TimeMachine was set. I then realised I was sending the audio output to the 227e that had A,B,C,D outs animated! Then I discovered a huge bleeding in the signal too. I’ll isolate the module and see if it’s not the adjacent DD-5/Wogglebug module which is interfering."

08 02 22 Vedic Scapes TimeMachine - Uncanny

"First day with the TimeMachine...
The 1979 MSV is sent to the TimeMachine. The 259e is sent to a Digital Delay, a DD-5 in a Buchla module. All is driven by a Wogglebug, part of the module with the DD-5 adaptation."
