The Noiseblast Hour, Episode 14: Drum & Lace

video upload by Noise Engineering

"Sofia Hultquist is an established and accomplished solo artist as Drum & Lace. She is also a film score composer who has a pretty impressive list of credits. She'll perform a set for us, followed by a conversation about how she got into music, film scoring, and what advice she has for anyone interested in taking that route in their music career."

Follow-up to this post.

"Patch matching isn't a spectator sport so it's a well boring start to the video :). I've even missed the the initial settings to avoid people falling into a coma.


Wow!! some of the grief I got about having one of them in mono in the original video !! KERPOW!!

Haha.. ah well, it can't all go smoothly every time. Anyway... yes it would have been better for them both to be in stereo.. BUT it actually made the OB6 sound blend better than it did in mono... watch and you'll see what I men.

Having said that - I have got them closer here. What generally happens is if I can't get the sounds exact I'll show what the difference is. Here there IS a difference but not as stark as in the first mono/stereo mishap.

For anyone offended by the OB6 not sounding as good.. I wasn't trying to make it sound worse. I'd rather keep hold of it and save the extra cash!"

Yes, the Americans still have RadioShack, but they left Canada decades ago, and it's just not the same as Tandy era Shack."

Mellotron Beer Review Hop Butcher For The World

video upload by Rat’s Beer Review

This one was spotted and sent my way via John L Rice who had the following to say about it:

"It’s a video from a guy who does reviews of beer. The one he reviewed happens to be called “Mellotron” but the image art on the can seems to be a caricature of Keith Emerson’s Moog modular from the mid 70‘s?! 😄 It really cool art and I wouldn’t mind having a t-shirt or poster of that! I looked around and the beer only seems available in South Carolina?"

Sign me up for a T as well.

LFO to Multiple VCO's Simultaneously via CV BUS with PRECISION VOLTAGES & GLIDE MkII Modules

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Here's a quicker, simpler, more accurate way to send LFO/pitch vibrato to more than one VCO without using a multiple, by using the PRECISION VOLTAGES module with the GLIDE + NOISE MkII. In a previous video we showed how to use the Glide MkII to access the CV bus for convenient pitch control of up to 4 VCO's [2nd video here]. This time we add the Precision Voltages, so that both keyboard/sequencer pitch CV and pitch modulation CV for vibrato can be combined, thus removing the need to multiply the LFO cables to all VCO's, and have to make modulation level adjustments on each individually.

The Precision Voltages is primarily aimed at shifting the pitch of your oscillators, accurately and conveniently, by octave and semitone intervals. However, it is capable of many other uses. In a previous video we showed how to use it to correct the octave range of CV sequencers and keyboard controllers so that you can reach the lowest notes/pitches your VCO's are capable of producing [1st video here].

Doepfer created the CV and Gate Bus system to allow signals to be passed down the bus board/cable to modules equipped to receive these control voltages, such as specific oscillator and envelope generator modules, reducing the number of patch cables, multiples, and simplifying the patching process. AJH Synth VCO's, Contour Generators and DH-ADSR all respond to the CV or Gate bus."

Lyricon I Wind Synthesizer w/ Manual & Schematic

via this auction

"Lyricon I (serial number 7 7 2 3 3). [looks like 78233 to me]

It is a glorious piece of craftsmanship, heavy body, mother of pearl touches, it feels very nice in your hands on stage and plays perfect. I found it much more inspiring and expressive than modern Midi based devices. It is meant by its inventor as a "stand-alone-device", it has no CV output and of course no MIDI, it is really an autonomous instrument similar to the Theremin etc. It comes with a cable for US power but I can include a transformer for 200Volts that I used. In this restored condition it will be playable for many years and the additional blueprints can help to restore it if needed. I have played MIDI wind controllers over the years but never got into the feeling and expressive possibilities - this one really stands out."

Vaemi : Osi-Op Through Zero (TZ) FM Sounds by Tunç Çakır

video upload by Vaemi

Osi-Op : Using Through Zero FM Synthesis and VCA : Vaemi (Eurorack)

"Osi-OP, which we regard as an analog reflection of the new era of digital electronic music, is an analog and voltage-controlled oscillator module. It was designed in Eurorack format and it has a width of 14hp. The fact that it has Thru Zero FM Input and a Waveshape Output, which can be used for morphing, are two of the most important features of this product. From a first impression, it may look like an oscillator that is appropriate for subtractive synthesis; however, we actually designed it to be used for additive synthesis. Thanks to Thru Zero FM, this oscillator can regard oscillators with Sine Wave as analog operators. You can even prepare your synthesizer patch without using the classic subtractive resonant filter. The most important aspect of Thru Zero FM is that there is no tune drift when you increase the modulation rate. For this reason, Thru Zero attenuator (TZ FM potentiometer) can almost be used like a filter itself. the frequency of the second oscillator acting as FM (operator) according to the frequency of the 1st oscillator giving the fundamental frequency; must be set in harmonic degrees of the fundamental frequency. But at these settings the tonality can remain in and be musical. In addition to Square, Saw, Triangle, and Square Sub oscillator outputs, it has a Sine Wave Output, which was designed with JFET transistors and has a very low distortion rate, and a Waveshape Output, which was designed with Sine-Triangle and can be used for morphing. It also has a Wave Shape Input. It is connected to this input via the Triangle Wave circuit board inside. Sine Wave is fixed on Wave Shape but you can forward it to the other WS Input by patching other waveforms, and you can morph between two waveforms. The pulse width of the Square Wave can be adjusted. The same knob is the morphing knob of the Waveshape Output. Since the oscillator has tempco, there is a 1V/OCT calibrated CV Input that is sensitive to heat. It can perfectly stay in tune up to 3.5 octaves. In addition, for FM, there are two separate CV Inputs, Exponential and Thru Zero. While Exponential FM CV Input can take all types of DC and AC voltages, Thru Zero FM CV Input can only be used for AC audio rate signals. Also, when you enter a waveform on Thru Zero FM CV Input, oscillators are soft-synced automatically. With 1V/OCT CV Input, you can adjust the frequency of the oscillator; and with Exponential FM CV Input, you can easily add an LFO or Envelope Generator. Square Wave Sub OSC Output, which is completely synced with fundamental frequency and can give an octave lower than the fundamental, will help you a lot to create strong modern synth-bass sounds. It is made with NOS IC. When the oscillator is FM modulated, the Sub OSC never gets negatively affected by this modulation; and it can maintain giving the frequency clearly. You can also switch the oscillator to the LFO mode. You can create subtractive syntheses by using two or more of these oscillators or by mixing these waveforms. The main reason for us to design this oscillator is, as its name shows, to enable the creation of complex FM patches and sounds by using 2-3 or more of these oscillators, just like Operator FM. While Thru Zero FM increases the modulation, it can maintain giving the same frequency without losing the adjusted frequency; and you can add harmonics to the sound musically. The module has 5 knob controls, 4 CV Inputs, an input for Waveshaper, and 6 ±5V waveform outputs. Osi-OP, which is handmade and produced with the help of Through Hole technology, is a product consisting of electronic components that is carefully tested."

Analog Modular Guitar Synthesizer NINE Oscillators Patch

video upload by Unrelated Activities

"An Analog Modular Guitar Synthesizer patch using nine oscillators, integrating the electric guitar into the modular synth world. Four oscillators are in octaves, the five remaining VCO/PCO create a chord running in parallel. If my Arduino Clock Divider and Logic thing still has sufficient memory space available, I will try to implement a harmonizer algorithm to improvise some basic non parallel chord-melody progressions, would be nice... I forgot to hook up two more ADSR/VCA pairs, that's why some note releases are a bit weird."
