Hungry Rat 2hp distortion - opamp comparison

video upload by John Schussler

"Welcome to the niche-y-est of all niche-y eurorack videos. The focus of this video is on tiny differences (or not so tiny) between opamps (operational amplifiers) in the Hungry Rat distortion, a 2hp module made by Modular for the Masses and inspired by the ProCo Rat.

To be fair, you'll still get a good intro to the Hungry Rat, which is a very nice use of 2hp. So if you're not opamp obsessed, skip around and just get the flavor.

If you are interested in opamp contributions to the sound, in this video you'll get to hear 4 different options. The 'bog standard' TL072, which everybody uses for everything; the TLC2262, which I gather is 'special'; the NE5532P; and the B072A.

VCO is a Doepfer A-111 sequenced by Intellijel Metropolix.

00:20 TL072
03:42 NE5532P
06:30 TLC2262CP

Fairwell Absynth, generative ambient production

video upload by DATABROTH

"Native Instruments has discontinued Absynth, this is very unfortunate for such a classic synth
I'm a bit embarrassed how little I've used this synth, so I figured I'd spend some time with it today.
This isn't just goodbye though, Brian Clevinger, the creator of Absynth has created a new synth, Plasmonic, and has plans to continue Absynth's legacy in the future

so if you are an Absynth fan, and haven't heard of Plasmonic yet, please check it out

Visite au studio Mos-Lab 2022 [w/ RSF Program Select]

video upload by Nr Synth

"Le studio Mos-Lab a la particularité de ne présenter que des instruments rares voire même rarissimes. Une caverne d'Ali baba qui a de quoi faire tourner la tête à tous les passionnés de synthés analos vintage. Sébastien nous parle de ces 2 dernières acquisitions: le matrix 12 et le Sonic 5."

"The Mos-Lab studio has the particularity of presenting only rare or even extremely rare instruments. An Ali Baba's cave which is enough to turn the heads of all lovers of vintage analog synths. Sébastien tells us about these 2 latest acquisitions: the Matrix 12 and the Sonic 5."

Starts with a walkthrough featuring an RMI Harmonic Synthesizer, Waldorf Wave, RSF Program Select unit, PPG 350 Computer Sequencer, Wave 2.3 & 360A Wave Computer.

This might be the first post to feature the RSF Program Select. Rare RSF Series 11 mouldar towards the end as well.

What are Modular Synthesizers? | History, Formats, & Notable Users|

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching and welcome to a project that I wanted to start for a very long time, and that is: 'Piotr Garbaczonek Presents Modular Tutorials, Tips, Tricks, and more...'

This is my first video like that in which the goal is to introduce the concept of modular synthesizers to people who may have never heard of them, and kind of open the gate to the world of modular for those people. What is modular? Who uses modular? What different formats are there? Why would they be used over software synthesizers? How they can be used in the music industry?

Please give me feedback and suggestions in the comments so that I can improve my videos next time. As you can see, I have never really done this type of content before, but I am trying it out and hopefully, it can be of help to people out there, but I am not perfect, so if there is anything that you don't agree with, or know some facts that I may have misrepresented please let me know in the comments, and as always I am grateful for your suggestions, and taking the time to provide them to me:)

In the next few videos, I am planning to be centered around different types of modules in a modular system, before going into making patches from scratch and kind of explaining my process of going about making modular music/sound design, etc.

I am a graduate student right now, so I am very unsure how I can manage schoolwork and these videos so the timeline of these is undecided but just know that they are in the works and they will be done when they will be done.

Cheers, and thanks for your constant support;)
- Piotr

Greatest Software Synths Of All Time

video upload by Woody Piano Shack

"Here are the most important, iconic and influential software sunthesizers of all time. I'll demo them all back and present some information about each. These are the synths that defined the sounds of new musical genres and revolutionized the music industry. All the synths we talk about today are softsynths, virtual synthesizers in software VST plugin format for running in your DAW for music production."

Korg Wavestate - "Dance Evolution" 50 Exclusive Performances

video upload by LFOstore

"Wavestate's first-ever exclusive dance soundbank is right in front of you!

If you were wondering if it is possible to use this synthesizer to create top-rated pop music, hip-hop or EDM (house, trance, drum and bass, techno, etc.), we confirm - now it is truly possible! We took the most creative approaches while creating these presets and squeezed out of the synthesizer its maximum capabilities.

This soundbank contains 50 exclusive presets, including inspiring and stimulating leads, wall-piercing basses, out-of-the-box sequences and arpeggios, flame-stoking drums, melodic pads and exhilarating plucks. All you need to implement your ideas and start your way to the top of the charts!

The soundset is created with love and passion by a well-known sound designer Otto K. Schwarz, famous for his cooperation with the leading synthesizer producers (Access (Virus synthesizers), Native Instruments, Modal Electronics, etc.)

! Soundset is suitable for both hardware and software (wavestate native vst) versions! All presets are collected in a single bundle, and therefore can be easily imported within a minute."

Oberheim Matrix 1000 w/ Stereoping Midi Controller!

via this auction

"Oberheim Matrix 1000 with the Stereoping midi controller included! The controller alone retails for over $500 new. The Matrix 1000 was recently serviced with a new save battery and an updated 1.2 Tauntek OS chip for better midi response. Cosmetically the Matrix 1000 has the usual "rack rash" which is not noticable when you place it on a rack. The front panel is in great condition. Please view the pictures carefully to see the specific physical condition that it is in. Everything functions well and the included controller turns this synth into a powerful instrument allowing you to build your own patches from scratch."

ROLAND Jupiter 6 Vintage Synth JP-6 Clean w/ Flight Case

via this auction

"Here it is. If you're like me, you've been lusting after this keyboard for years. I've been playing, buying and selling analog synths since the late '90s and this has always been a "holy grail" instrument for me. Last year I went to Tokyo and made my dreams come true and picked this baby up! Seller had a retired Roland tech inspect and refurb it prior to my purchase. If/when you open it up, you'll see the inspection sticker. Since its from Japan, its 110V not 120V by the way.
Since owning it, I have used it on several projects. Nothing sounds like it!! In June one of the voices died, so I replaced it w/ a NOS CEM3340 (see the last pick). Its all tested, setup, and ready to go. Synth is lovingly packed in a Gator Flight case and I will ship w/ insurance."

Swarm of Wasps - Minute ish Jam - NO TALKING NO EFFECTS 7 Layers of the Behringer Wasp

video upload by HansiLa

"Another minute (ish) jam. This one consists of the Behringer Wasp mono synthesizer layered 7 times (8 if you count the duplication and panning of one of the tracks). I had some fun tweaking the high pass filters on a couple patches to create a snare and high hat.

Every sound on this jam is from the Behringer Wasp.

As always there are no effects and the only processing is panning so you can really get a feel how the Wasp sounds with other instruments... in this case, itself.

Enjoy and thanks!"
