Patching Sound: Understanding modular synthesis

video upload by moogfoundation

"Want to get hands-on with a modular synth? This Moogseum exhibit, new in summer 2022, lets people patch in -- and explore what it's like to play and perform on a modular synthesizer.

Sound designer Reek Havok, who created the custom, interactive exhibit, talks about how Patching Sound fulfills the Bob Moog Foundation's goals of sharing the history behind modular synthesis, and the technology within the modules -- both in a way that's accessible to all ages and all of our visitors.

Exhibit funded in part by synth pioneer Dave Rossum of E-mu Systems.

Thank you North Carolina Humanities for awarding us a grant for Patching Sound!

Oberheim OB-X8 vs Alesis Andromeda A6

video upload by synthlegends

"A short shootout to demonstrate the SEM Filter section of the A6 vs the SEM Filter of the new OB-X8 plus tutorial how to tweak it. I made this video to justify myself that I don't need the OB-X8 because I allready have the A6. I can come quite close but it is obvios that the OB-X8 SEm Filter sounds much airer and nicer. Only the HP Filter sounds quite weak on the OB-X8 compared to the A6. What are your opinions? Please comment it. Thanks for watching again my videos."

video upload by

"We are rolling out a fresh TWO OF CUPS V2R firmware update. That took us almost a year with blood, sweat and tears by fully rewriting many parts of the code but in the end we have a solid V2R final release.

- fully rewritten new manual with all the new features fully documented
- all 6 modes (volume, envelope, pitch, loop, reverse, sample meta) fully polished
- new reverse files converted added which launches on module's power up converting new files. Now all the samples in the voice are properly reverse
- occasional clicks during the playback are now fully eliminated on new sample start or most importantly on sample's retrig
- improvement in various sample rate files playback, all possible meta data in the files is now properly ignored
- proper v/oct pitch offset files added so the normal sample playback is correctly 100%"

Seiko's Forgotten Synthwave Dream Machine

video upload by HAINBACH

"In 1983 Yamaha released the DX7, which became the most successful synthesizer of its time. To much less acclaim, Japanese watch-maker SEIKO put out the DS-System in the same year. All but forgotten today, the DS is rather strange - it consists of a home keyboard that can be expanded with an additive synthesizer and a sequencer module. A complete flop when it came it, but rather charming for today's Vapor- and Synthwave schooled ears.
