Jay Wires Depeche Mode Shout Cover Roland SH-2 Korg Volca Beats SQ1 Vintage Synthesizer Sequencer

video upload by Jay Wires

"Roland SH-2 (modified) sequenced by Korg SQ-1 analog sequencer with Korg Volca Beats on drums. I was just goofing around for a couple minutes and came up with this sequence that reminded me of Depeche Mode "Shout", off their debut album Speak & Spell, which is one of my favorite albums ever. Vince Clarke wrote most of the songs before leaving to form Yaz and then Erasure. The SH-2 here has been modified for oscillator sync. What would normally be the keyboard gate output jack is now a CV input for VCO2 that's activated when the bender switch is in the right position. I used the CV out of the sequencer to control VCO2's pitch for timbral modulation and used the sequencer's gate out to trigger the envelope generator on the SH-2 (via the SH's gate input). As you can see, I transposed the sequence manually by playing the keyboard.

What's your favorite Depeche Mode album? I flip flop between Speak & Spell, Black Celebration and Violator."

Live annotated eurorack techno synthwave with Tempest

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a live techno synthwave electronic music performance, where I wanted to see if I could take advantage of the Malekko Sync module and use it to send MIDI clock from the Tempest to my eurorack sequencers. This is an entirely live and improvised performance, and I included annotations to show some of what I'm thinking about and also to demonstrate the different musical themes weaving in and out of the texture Since I'm a film composer by trade, this came out relatively cinematic and would work in certain movie score settings. This is a very simple setup to make a big sound. I hope this is educational for you as well, in terms of how I put these performances together. Hopefully this camera angle also helps you learn something!"

Modal Electronics Launches Filton Eurorack Module as Exclusive Kickstarter Project

video upload by Modal Electronics

– Renowned innovator of next-generation synthesisers releases its first Eurorack module, bringing the sound of a new-vintage classic to electronic musicians worldwide. –

Bristol, UK - 7 September 2022. Modal Electronics, a leading global synthesiser manufacturer, today announced Filton, a 20HP Dual Analogue Transistor Ladder Filter Module for Eurorack.

Based on the most popular classic filter design in synth history, Filton delivers the distinctive saturated transistor overdrive, resonant harmonic peaks and warm analogue timbres that is adored by many synth lovers for generations. In our acclaimed 002 synth we introduced the concept of polesweeping into the circuitry to allow seamless filter morphing from four pole through bandpass to one pole 6db per octave, or anywhere in between.

Since then, we were asked by many to release the 002 filter as a separate product to use with external sound sources or in Eurorack setups. Filton is our answer to these passionate musicians and producers.

Although the ladder filter within Filton incorporates the same filter circuitry from the 002 synthesiser, Modal made many alterations to the original design to improve both stability and sound. Also, this module contains two discrete filters rather than just one, to process two sound signals independently or allow for series or parallel processing of a single source.

Each filter features an audio input, four analogue CVs with attenuvertor controls for FM, Resonance, Morph and Level, pitch tracking provided by the 1V/Oct input, an audio output and a mixed output. All CV inputs on Filter A have been normalled to Filter B, meaning any CV signal plugged into Filter A is automatically sent to Filter B if nothing is plugged into the corresponding input.

Filton will be available as a limited Kickstarter edition from 7th September 2022. Modal has no plans to distribute it using its usual distribution network. Various pledge models are available, whereas a single Filton module will be at £299.

DIY Drone Synthesizer : Vaemi

video upload by Vaemi

"It is a drone synthesizer that can be played with 4 analog channels or 4 voices. You can play it with the touchpads or the buttons. The main difference between the touchpads and the buttons is that the former reacts accordingly to the level of pressure you force upon them with your finger. In fact, each channel is designed as a monophonic synth voice, and each has a sustain-release 2-stage envelope and a basic vca. In total, it has 4 envelopes and 4 vcas. Behind the VCA, there is a 4- channeled mixer. This mixer is used for the summing of these 4 voice channels. A modulation of frequency between the Oscillators 1-2 and the Oscillators 3-4 is possible. At the very end of this diagram, there is an RC filter that can adjust the frequency rate and tune of the synthesizer. It can run with a 9v DC adaptor or with batteries. The audio output is designed as a 1/8mm TS jack.

Technicial Specifications:
• 4 Polyphony
• 4 Analog Oscillator
• Touchpads and Buttons
• 4 Analog Envelope (Sustain, Release)
• 4 Analog VCA
• 4 Channel Mixer
• 1 Analog RC Filter
• FM Modulation
• Can work with adapter or 9V battery
• Mono Output (1/8mm jack output)"

Meng Qi Wingie 2, Norns (Awake), Digitakt | run

video upload by patchesinblue

"@Meng Qi 's #Wingie 2 is one of the most deeply gratifying instruments i've interacted with in the last few years; it feels personal, intimate and experimental all at the same time. when i began sketching, i missed being able to add notes from a lower octave, while keeping most of the melodic content in the upper registers. so - i went out and got another Wingie 2. they make a beautiful pair together

for this piece, i tried to push the Wingie out side its usual familiar territory, and it responded very well. both Wingie's are receiving input from the monome norns awake synth; the black Wingie resonating an octave below the silver one, subtly, with a shorter decay time. i also added some color to the original sound from the wingie; the silver wingie is going through an electro-harmonix big muff guitar pedal (just off camera on the top). there's also an mxr dyna comp pedal (also slightly off camera) that is boosting the right-channel of the silver wingie.

there's also a norns shield (next to the silver Wingie), running an arp from Awake, tempo-linked to the standard black norns. ironically, the norns shield display went to sleep sometime before i started recording.

the expressive e touché is controlling the filter cut off of the norns awake synth. as the cut off changes, the wingie resonates accordingly.

lastly, there's digitakt for rhythm. yet another wonderful instrument that never fails to deliver.

this piece was a bit outside the usual for me, but so are the times we live in and everything i'm experiencing. i hope you enjoy listening."

Live improvisation with new setup // Erica Synths Perskons // Digitakt // Syntakt // Lemondrop

"Here’s an excerpt from one of the first improvisation sessions with a completely new setup that I'm working on. I made the move to fully improvise and it has been a wonderful experience so far. Long way to go still, but it's so much fun so going to keep at it. Have gigs coming up where I'll be using this as well. Scary but exciting :)"

Bastl Instruments Dark Matter & Waver feedback

video upload by Synthesizer New Zealand

"Today we will be having a closer look at @Bastl Instruments Dark Matter & Waver and dive deep into the world of envelope followers by feeding some audio into the input of Dark Matter.

A little crazy. Untamed. Evocative, deep & kind of awful. And don't forget, totally beautiful.

Dark Matter is a high energy sound processor and signal generator that unleashes the crazy raw power of audio feedback into your eurorack system. In this video it teams up with Bastl Instrument's Pizza, the compact digital oscillator with powerful wave shaping applied to FM synthesis & Waver, a fully analog, wave folding mixer and signal disruptor inspired by experimental mixing techniques and mind-melting drones.

This is the first video I'll be doing on this channel and I'm planning to do a lot more, there is lots to learn about content creation but it was fun to make this video. I hope you enjoy too!

Synth Shorts - Access Virus C/DSP56300 - Classic Hardstyle Lead & Flute

video upload by Eyezer Productionz Sound Design

"A classic big sounding Hardstyle lead made with the DSP56300 emulator, which is running Access Virus C ROM. I used full panspread in the global unison section and around 5-6 voices of global unison. The panspread really helps to widen up the sound. It's quite funny how modern day Hardstyle producers use tons of layers, while the good old Virus can sound huge with just 1 synth layer. Simplicity is the best, imo.
