Vivaldi Four Seasons Winter Largo with Elektron Analog Four + Pluck 2hp and Strings

video upload by the machine in the botanical garden

"Version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons (Winter - Largo) with Elektron Analog Four Synthesizer + 2hp Pluck and Strings
The lead voice is played by a very small and thin voice module synthesizer called "pluck" by the usage of a physical modelling algorithm called "Karplus strong" to recreate plucked string sounds. This is happening under the direction of the "Analog Four" sequencer, synchronically while this one is playing the synthetic part of the bass.
Next to them perform the violins, divided into first and second, as well as the violas. These have been in charge of filling in the harmony - between the solo voice and the bass - from the original chords of the piece."

Elektron MODEL SAMPLES and WIND QUARTET + bastl ikarie Perfomance and Review

video upload by the machine in the botanical garden

"Elektron MODEL SAMPLES + bastl ikarie and WIND QUARTET: Oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn (assembled in the Cre8audio Nifty case). Perfomance and short review.
I have written the score with the Staffpad score player and editor. The library used for the wind sounds is Berlin woodwinds from Orchestral tools (Staffpad version).

The composition is titled: Painting XI

'Model:Samples' is the little brother of the Elektron family of sampling machines.
A sampler is a machine or software that can manipulate captured sounds.
The possibilities of sampling today are practically infinite and the variety of processes that can be carried out on the audio are very sophisticated.
'Model:samples' doesn't stand out for its sophistication, that's what its older brothers are for.
'Model:samples' stands out for combining not only the power and versatility of the specific sequencer of Elektron machines but also for its ease of use and immediate control.
Since how quickly and effectively it can become a musical instrument: Most of the mechanisms to variate any sound are within reach of a single movement of your hand. Your imagined ideas can be quickly consolidated into a result on the machine; as when you play a key on the piano or a string on the guitar.
I've converted the mono signal from the 'Model:sample' to a stereo one by letting it flow through the `Bastl Instruments´ 'Ikarie' filter. A dual-mode stereo filter whose gain has also given it a lot of color.
I did only make use of a single sample for this topic. One of those which the machine is factory-equipped with. But it has been enough for a wind quartet that aspired to become a quintet to sign it up on their team.
The full lineup of this quintette is now composed by a clarinet, an oboe, a horn, a bassoon and, finally, 'Model:samples'.
There must have been good harmony between them, since they have promised to meet more times in the future to play together in this very special garden, where things from yesterday, today and, perhaps at some point, tomorrow meet up together."

Sequential OB-6 Tutorial Lesson 11: How to make In The Light By Led Zeppelin

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a tutorial series for anyone who wants to learn how to do their own sound design using the Sequential Circuits (former Dave Smith Instruments) OB-6 synthesizer. The goal is to break this subject down into understandable and digestible bits of information that you can apply to your own electronic music. I am primarily a media or film composer, so we will learn ambient, techno, and EDM style sound design using the synth.
This eleventh video shows how to make the lead sound and something sort of close to the drone celli for the Led Zeppelin song 'In The Light'."

Video game mood music with Dirtywave M8 Tracker

video upload by Jay Hosking

"A full performance on the Dirtywave M8 Tracker, using its synths, sampler, sequencer, and effects.

At the end of August, I went on a trip, my first proper holiday in about ten years. I brought two small pieces of gear with me but used only one: the M8. I had expected to find the M8 too static or non-performative to be enjoyable, but I was drawn in by its fantastic sounding synthesizer designs, sampler with lots of editing and control, lush effects (reverb, delay, chorus), and workflow that led to new ideas. The M8 fits well in the hands, feels good to use, and has a great battery life. It's the perfect portable idea machine for me at the moment, easy enough to stash on any outing, and powerful enough that its sounds are inspiring.

This video isn't a 'jam' by any means, simply me pressing play and letting the M8 go. This is the M8's biggest drawback, in my opinion: it isn't conducive for live, dynamic performance. But that said, I imagine that I'll be using the M8 to create stems—it has a stem export feature—and then loading the stems into something more performative, like the Octatrack. It's a great little idea machine and gives me fodder for jams later.

If you're looking for a portable device for coming up with musical ideas, the M8 might be a good choice.

Thanks for listening.

The recording has EQ, compression, and limiting on the master."

Italo Disco Hits - Fancy Flames Of Love with Sequential Prophet VS

video upload by RetroSound

"(c)2007-22 by RetroSound
supported by UVI:

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

One of the favorite Euro Disco/Italo Disco songs from the late 80s.
Flames Of Love by Fancy from the year 1988

Fancy is Manfred Alois Segieth
German producer and singer born in Munich, Germany.

The song always reminds me of the small village disco events on every weekend in the country at the end of the 80's. Just danceable music. Still goes to every party today.
I practically bought the Prophet VS used in the mid-90s only because of this concise synthetic choir sound. Also heard on France Gall's Elle'la and Here I Go Again by Whitesnake.

I used here the Sequential Prophet VS vector synthesizer for all synth parts. The bass is make with the Roland SH-101 analog synthesizer.

Thanks WMD! | A tribute to Alex & William from WMDevices

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I was a bit shocked by the sad news of #WMD closing shop by the end of 2022. I did not see that one coming. This may also be because I've been putting my head in the sand for three years, trying to stay away from a world going into a second 'roaring 20's' with a super flu, dropping economies and war on EU soil. Nobody f*cking asked for this. I've seen a lot of posts posing questions like 'is eurorack dying out?'. Sure, some brands will not make it, but new brands will start fresh without relying on parts that are not available. I guess we'll see a more fully analog modules in a near future.

As for WMD, I love every single module they make/made. They're top quality modules, aimed at the performer. Even if you don't perform live, you can do a great show in your basement, attic or living room. So get your smartphone out and make/post a little tribute to make sure WMD knows we love them. Finally, I have blind faith WMD will be back one day. Maybe under a different name, but artistry, expertise and quality never closes shop. Just make sure you get the latest firmwares and manuals for your gear, and get your WMD bucket list cleared. When they sell out, they will be sold out forever. I got a DB25 expander, Geiger Counter & Axxent expander this week and trying to figure out which VCO I'd get to complete my collection."

Fantastic use of ring modulation throughout, and of tuned noise. And great dual mono spring reverb.

It has that vibe that only the Model D reissue has had in the recent analog world offerings. It feels like an instrument, like a voice, not a toy. And you can program some deceptively deep sounds."

Weston Precision Audio - B2 Kick/Bass Voice & XAOC Devices - Koszalin

video upload by SchneidersLaden

"In this video we listen to two quite interesting modules, both in combination and separately. This is not a video manual or tutorial, just some sounds and patches with these two modules.

The Xaoc Devices Koszalin is a digital stereo frequency shifter with linear thru-0 and exponential FM - Xaoc Devices have once again managed to build a module on a digital basis, which delivers an incredibly precise and high-quality sound. Even if we push it to the limits more often in this video, the sonic quality shows in almost every situation.

The Weston Precision Audio B2 Kick/Bass Voice module describes itself virtually by its name. It features an oscillator, envelope, filter and VCA - in other words, everything you need for a monophonic, subtractive synthesizer - only here everything is designed to create kicks and bass. The versatile oscillator with waveshaper, the great sounding filter and the well thought-out user interface make working with the module a great delight."

"CRB Elettronica was one of many organ manufacturers in the Marche region in Italy. Starting in the mid 70s they did however branch out to produce a very limited number of synthesizers and drum machines for a domestic market where, due to a weak lira and high import taxes, Japanese or American manufactured synths were rare treats.

The CRB Computer Band 2000 is an analog auto-accompaniment machine with a range of chord and arpeggiator sounds with decay controls, as well as a bass section and a drum machine with individually mutable sounds.

The CRB Voco Strings is an Italian take on the Roland VP-330 - a string and vocoder machine.

In this video we're letting the CRB Voco strings process the CRB Computer Band 2000 via the regular audio input, while a third player, the Siel Cruise, a lovely Mono / Poly machine, is connected as an external carrier signal, via the instrument input."
