It appears YouTube isn't autogenerating thumbnails at the moment. Just hit play to start and all will be well.

"Double Trilogy part 2

I've been exploring the 'double trilogy' of the Make Noise desktop synths and the recent Chase Bliss pedals

In today's episode I'm exploring Streaga and Mood. As you may have discovered if you've ever played on one - Strega is a noisy bugger and has a bit of mind of its own. Playing it can be a bit of a 'collaboration' with what it wants.

There are two parts - one faster one slower. Slightly better camera angle than last week too - my hand isn't constantly in the way ."

Glänta – Dynamic FM Synthesizer

video upload by Fors

"Glänta is an FM synthesizer with a simple structure that puts focus on the fundamentals of FM synthesis with a carefully crafted 2-operator core.

From years of expertise and obsession with FM synthesis, Glänta extends established concepts with unique twists that are powerful yet easy to use.

All sounds in this video are made with multiple instances of Glänta without effects."


➋ × FM Oscillators
➊ × Flexible ADSR
➊ × Regular ADSR

with stereo phase modulation,
pitch-relative unison,
dynamic bipolar feedback,
and polyphonic note slide.

Up to 16 voices of polyphony.

Power of 2
Glänta puts focus on the fundamentals of FM synthesis with a 2-Operator structure that lets you sculpt a myriad of sounds with ease, this is FM done right to its very core, with extended functionality that expands the repertoire of 2-OP algorithms.

Each FM oscillator in Glänta has dynamic self-modulation, a type of feedback that is bipolar and frequency-compensated. This allows even a single oscillator to achieve saw- and square-like waveshapes that are consistent and alias-free across the whole pitch range.

Envelopes made for FM
The modulator envelope in Glänta is made with FM in mind. By extending the standard ADSR envelope with adjustable start- and end-levels, the FM envelope is streamlined for getting the timbral modulation just right. With a logarithmic attack and exponential decay, the modulation and dynamics sound natural and snappy.

Stereo Modulation & Unison
The stereo mode puts the modulation itself in a phase-shifted stereo alignment which widens the sidebands, creating an FM-based stereo effect. On top of this the pitch-relative unison mode adds two oscillators, one above and one below the fundamental for anything from slight chorusing to harmonic layering.

Eleven and Nine - Jam Session

video upload by ollilaboratories

"If you like my music you can find more over here


Hi everyone !

After a very long hiatus I am starting to feel a bit alive and ready for some BURG minimal jam sessions. Starting slowly with this playful and (sort of dubby) minimal tune where the Norand Mono has 11 step pattern and the Avalon Bassline a 9 step pattern. It takes a long time for these two loops to align and play the same thing twice so it helps to create this dynamic movement which i enjoy very much... I am more or less letting the synths play their own stuff and enjoying the ride.

This is all connected together with no mixer, Norand and Avalon into L+R in on the analog four, analog four into L+R on the digitakt. The digitakt has some compression on the stereo bus out and recorded directly into a Zoom H5 stereo track. Limiter has been added in post to even out the peak/levels a bit.

I hope that you will enjoy this one!

Gear Used:
** Elektron Digitakt ( Kick and percussion )
** Elektron Analog Four ( sequences and drones + FX for the Norand and Avalon )
** Avalon Bassline ( square 9 step pattern )
** Norand Mono ( Heavily Modulated 11 step bass pattern )

Step Sequencer & Fixed Filter Bank 914 - An alternative to a VCF for sculpting sequences

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"This 'Patch of The Week' shows the Fixed Filter Bank 914 being used instead of a typical voltage-controlled filter to sculpt the sound of a step sequencer pattern, and also how on this particular module the sequencer can also interact with it for more variation and movement. The module is based on the original 914 unit from the vintage Moog modular systems, something Klaus Schulze was very keen on using as part of his 'Big Moog' that he used for much of his music career.
Here the excellent Doepfer Dark Time sequencer is used, but any dual, or combination of 2 step sequences could be used.
Downloadable Patch sheet link and patch notes further down the description.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Plasma Drive Eurorack module .. Quest for the perfect distortion

video upload by PanicGirlVids

"I have been on a quest for the perfect distortion for the last couple of weeks and I have been quite frustrated so far. Not a single distortion I tried seemed to fit the sound I had in mind, be it hardware or software.

But what defines a 'perfect distortion' you ask? That is of course very subjective and everyone would answer differently I guess. For me the distortion I was looking for had to sound very warm, but also defined, crunchy and if needed "brutal" in a way. On the other hand it shouldn't sound washed out or too digital and cold. As you know it can be pretty hard to describe a sound you have in your head with words ^^

My last purchase was the Plasma Drive from Erica Synths and Gamechanger Audio, and I thought why not try this one out together with you guys?"

凉风 Breeze

video upload by Meng Qi

"This song was composed last year, one day just like today——autumn starts in late summer, with cold breezes gently blowing day and night. So I named it 凉风 (Breeze). Also, I got inspiration from an ancient Chinese poem called 夏日南亭怀辛大 (Longing For Xin The Elder In The Southern Pavilion On A Summer Day). Besides, the song uses a vocoder from Madrona Labs Virta to modify my voice, shaping it into a thick and thus emotional sound.

Lyrics by Annqi

山光池月微凉一场 如梦
初晓 / 清音响 / 庭院夜来霜
启幽窗 / 帘卷浮香半添妆
清影荡漾 / 水木澹澹

无据 / 不思量
清影印杯 / 杯复一杯
踏着 / 阶前 / 点点星乱

闲风拂散 / 簪花落去 / 乘夕凉
夜来 / 几度寒 / 风飒飒
还尽一杯 / 杯复一杯

夜微凉 / 难思量"

Test du filtre 1047: un filtre sans concession!

"Voici la version 'reporter' du test du filtre ARP 1047 cloné par Mos-Lab ainsi qu'un comparatif avec la version Behringer. En toute honnêteté, Seb et moi avons été surpris par la version d'Ulli. En dépit d'un niveau de sortie moindre, le son est très proche."

Volca Modular Hidden Feature - How to Step Record Long and Short Notes

"Here's something I found a while ago while I was taking a bit of a deep dive into sequencing on the Volca Modular, sequencing long and short notes. This is something that isn't mentioned in the manual but it's super useful for making precise sequences, if a bit tricky to use."
