video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Download this patch here:

Send your sounds through a sequenced multi-band filter and a delay! Both are synced to a global clock and can be set to different note divisions and durations. Use the keyboard to turn filter bands 'on' or 'off' Instant cool rhythmic patterns abound. Quilt can add a little character to an already-good sound, or can self-oscillate and fly away all on its own! Add noise and durational control to your sound. Run an entire song through Quilt if you want to be delighted. We did this with 'IAMARMX' by ZOE.LEELA. Listen to it here:"

Modular Jam from EMOM 4-8-22

video upload by Molten Music Technology

"This is an attempt to capture my performance from the Electronic Music Open Mic (EMOM) at The Rumsey Wells in Norwich last night. Recorded live direct to Reel-to-Reel and then recorded to computer, lined up with the video and posted.

It's interesting to me how the drums in the track are both on the money and off somehow at the same time. It's like it hooks in and then loses its grip. Weird, but fascinating. It was probably a heartbeat out of sync or something."

Fender Chroma Polaris II Vintage Analog Synth SN 500248

via this auction

video in the listing previously posted here.

"Rare vintage analog synthesizer Fender Chroma Polaris II serviced and in excelent working order.

The Chroma Polaris is an ARP-designed, 6 voice microprocessor-based sibling of the famous ARP Chroma with the raw and powerful analog sound of the magnificient Curtis CEM3372 4 pole, 24 dB/oct. low-pass filter chip, used in iconic synthesizers such as Oberheim's Matrix 12 and Xpander, and the Sequential Prophet 600 & Prophet T8.

It boasts 2 DCO (CEM3374) per voice, plus a suboscillator and noise circuit, osc sync and ring modulation, 2 envelope generators (filter and VCA), LFO, a basic velocity sensitive 61-key keyboard that can be layered or splitted, 132-memory programs, full MIDI implementation (all sliders can be automated via MIDI, up to 3 layered programs in different channels, storage/retrieval of patches via simple Sysex) and a basic sequence recorder.

Model 2123B was a rarer still series with 100% the same exact specs but produced for the Japanese market.

This unit has been thoroughly serviced and future-proofed for use, specially all the usual issues that this synth suffers at some point:

New high-quality panel membrane replacement by Paul DeRocco
Velocity-sensitive keyboard serviced and calibrated
Firmware EPROM updated to V9 (latest)
Power supply set for 220V-240V (reversible to 110V-115V)
Unit tested and calibrated"

Qu-Bit FDN Verb - An official alt. Firmware for Aurora

video upload by Qu - Bit

"Alternate firmware downloads for eurorack modules that are already amazing. Does it get any better? At Qu-Bit, we'll keep innovating to take our instruments to the next level. As promised, here's the first official alternate firmware for Aurora, FDN Verb. Did we mention it's free?

And as you hopefully already know--the process of updating to FDN Verb couldn't be easier. Simply download the file from the link above, put it on your USB drive that came with Aurora, and power cycle the module. Make sure to check out the manual for FDN Verb in addition to watching this video.

FDN Verb is a Feedback Delay Network reverb algorithm for the Aurora platform. Think of it as your bread and butter end of chain reverb, with a few tricks up its sleeve. Alongside incredibly present room reverbs, and wide lush halls, FDN Verb gives you control over highpass and lowpass filtering of the reverb, pitch modulation, and a separate input level knob from Mix, all for dialing in the perfect reverb to complement your sound."

Lost Radiophonics

video upload by UncertainMusicCorps

"I was given the opportunity to sample audio from a very early example of a domestic radio receiver, built in around 1925, probably designed receive some of the earliest broadcasts by the BBC.

The recordings were made using both a contact mic on the radio headset and Soma Labs Ether 'anti-radio' (which felt kind of poetic).

I curated the recordings into usable samples, converted to SF2 format and imported into Wotja to generate the soundtrack to this short video.

Huge thanks to Lostwithel Museum for indulging me despite their bewilderment."

Introducing ASQ-1 - Multimode Sequencer - ALM035

video upload by ALM TV

Additional posts featuring the ASQ-1

"The ASQ-1 is a multi mode Eurorack sequencer. It can simultaneously sequence two CV/GATE and four trigger patterns, as well as perform synchronised quantisation of an external CV signal. Programming of all patterns is performed using familiar classic paradigms – SH101 style step-time note entry and classic drum machine pattern editing – with satisfying mechanical computer style keys.

ASQ-1 is designed to be a simple, immediate sequencer ideally suited to quickly jamming out ideas, having happy accidents and performing live. It is intended to be a fun and hands on alternative to the many increasingly complex hardware sequencers out there."
