Oberheim OB-X8 - My Presets - No FX

video upload by synthlegends

"Here you can hear my personal programmed custoo presets (maybe I also will share them by interest). You can listen to some punchy basses, drones, leads, e-piano sounds, strings, evelving pads, brass and keys. Many classic sounds to listen, but thanks to adding triangle waves, mixing of wavesforms, the complete SEM Filter Sections including also the great bandpass and notch filter, I created also some other stuff.

As my most videos, I didn’t use any processing, although I was thinking of using a great reverb or delay pedal from GFI (just for fun). But I think for you to listen to the pure sound oft he OB-X8 it’s better to listen pure, dry and raw directly into the audio interface. I used commonly stereo in spread modus full. So it is brooooaaaad and fat ☺.

I really love this synth extremely much. It is a pitty that it has to leave my studio again - but maybe some time ...

Have fun to listen this video and thanks for watching. Make some music!"

DSI Prophet 12 | The Xophen Soundbank, a bank of 99 patches including pads, leads, brass, FM bells

video upload by MIDERA

"Included is a series of patches I have made since July 2021. I recorded everything here within one run, so you will hear whatever mistakes I make as I go through all of the patches to give you a feel for how they all sound. There is no reverb on these sounds (as much as I would have preferred how they sounded). Anything you hear will sound the same on my unit as it does on yours. Small amount of master limiting was used.

A few notes though - you are advised to turn your Master Volume up. This is because there is a strange behavior on the Prophet 12 where if you lower the Master Volume, you may hear very strange differences in panning of voices, hence, my Master Volume is at Maximum and my VCA values are much lower to compensate. This has worked well for me. I actually had sent my unit in for diagnostics for fear that something was wrong. Sequential informed me that this was normal behavior.

Vaemi R2R Ladder

video uploads by Vaemi

Playlist: [don't miss the last video for a musical example]

R2R Ladder : Basic Features : Vaemi (Eurorack)
Now we will use the module as 8 in 1 out. Using the output of an oscillator we can hear exactly how the module works. The sound level is getting lower and lower. Now we will use the module as 1 in - 8 out. Again, when we go down from the outputs, we hear the sound lower.In fact, the module is like an attenuator or a mixer.It can also be considered as a passive multiple. Now let's use it like a mixer and summing the outputs of two separate oscillators.
R2R Ladder : CV Modulation with R2R Ladder : Vaemi (Eurorack)
In this video we will use the R2R Ladder module to create a CV modulation. To hear what we're doing, I first connect the 2nd oscillator's Sine wave output to an LPG. We get the sound from LPG. We use the 1st oscillator to make FM. After passing the 1st oscillator through a VCA, we direct it to the FM input of the 2nd oscillator. I make Maths the Master clock and activate the clock divider right next to it. Standard 5V gate signals are output from each output of the clock divider. I am summing these signals with the help of the R2r Ladder module and determining their levels. R2R Ladder is currently used as 8 in - 1 out. The output of R2R controls the VCA we use for FM. Now, we cancel the signal we sent to vca on the R2R ladder and direct this signal to LPG.
R2R Ladder : Waveshaper Patch : Vaemi (Eurorack)
In this video, you can think that we are using the R2R Ladder module like a waveshaper or like a mixer. We connect the 1v/oct output of the sequencer to the first oscillator. We connected it to the Trig input of Maths at the gate outputs of the Sequencer. We will get the Square Wave output of the first oscillator, but we will not listen to it. With this frequency, we will operate the clock divider at a frequency of audio rate and we will begin to hear the dividers of the frequencies of the oscillator, that is, the harmonic degrees. Output number 1 in clock divider is exactly the same as the frequency of the oscillator.Now we can combine different different harmonics with R2R module. In this way, you will get more complex square waveforms.
R2R Ladder : 8 bit Arcade Style Squencer Patch : Vaemi (Eurorack)
In this video, we will make an 8bit arcade style sequencer patch. R2R Ladder is able to do this job without disturbing the tune. While making the patch, be very careful not to disturb the calibration. There are 2 separate sounds in this patch. One of the voices is synthbass and the other is a lead synth. We will do the modulation to the Lead synth. The lead synth with the 2.oscillator is played the 1v/oct input with a sequencer. On the Exponential FM input, we will add a CV modulation consisting of square waves obtained with the help of a clock divider and R2R Ladder. We hear the results together.

"R2R Ladder is a piece of unique ancillary equipment. It is inspired by DAC, and it is one of the most important and essential parts of it. Designed by Vaemi, this R2R Ladder module is an 8-bit converter. Through the inputs and outputs, whether it is audio or cv, you can enter all types of AC and DC signals. You can think of each channel as 1 bit. Each 1-bit data you send to the inputs will increase incrementally. For instance, a square waveform can be regarded as a binary system. Every channel has 2 resistances, series and parallel; and through these, you can establish a resistance ladder circuit. This circuit gives you the opportunity to get 128 parameters in the binary system, from 0 to 127.

You can use the module as 8 in – 1 out or 1 in – 8 out. Therefore, it can be used for a few different tasks. If you enter any signal from the input, from the other 8 output, it will come out as a low signal like an attenuator. The rate of lower signals will change in every input. If you enter 8 inputs, it will serve as a summing mixer. For example, if you combine more than 2 cv signals, you will have a new cv signal. If you enter more than 2 waveforms and use it in an audio rate frequency range, it will act like a waveshaper. The basic principle of a converter is that it works with 1s and 0s. To do this, it uses gate signals. The voltage of the gate signals is stable. When there is no signal, it is 0 volts; and when there is a signal, it is 8 volts. This circuit can split 8 volts into 128 equal pieces. By using the combinations of the inputs, you can reach all of these 128 points. In this way, without even thinking too much, when you combine 3-4 gate signals with this module, it will easily stop on the right notes, which is the right tune, just like in the tampere note system. The reason for this is that the module splits the voltage proportional. These CV signals you have got can be used in various modulations. It can also be used with an attenuator, a mixer and a multiple. The module is passive, and it does not require a power source."

'Radiophonic Randomness' - Using the RANDOM VOLTAGE EVENT GENERATOR to make retro scf-fi sounds

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Just for fun... Some lo-fi sounds/noises created with the help of the Dual RVG Eurorack module, providing random voltages and clock/gate signals, and demonstrating it's ability to multi-function, here providing 4 control signals. It's just an experiment really, since the author of this video is such a fan of the early adopters of analogue synths and the sounds they created, from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's low-budget TV and radio soundtracks, to the first, less melodic synthesizer experimentations of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, and others.

Many of these involved the instruments and tools created by a small English company called EMS (Synthi, VCS3), and the Dual RVG by AJH Synth is directly based on one of their rarest products - the Random Voltage Generator. These would be incredibly hard to find now, and expensive, so having the same functionality and vintage circuit design in just 14hp of Eurorack space is a great alternative. The Dual RVG is a limited edition, only 500 units were to be made, but there are still some left as of writing this. It is an authentic vintage design, and it's behaviour faithfully recreates this character - organic in it's uncertainty and anomalies, unlike modern digital modulation sources. A very unique, but useful tool for generative music, experimental sound design, but also melodic composition and performance, especially when used with a quantiser and/or sequencer (see here: [posted here])

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: [posted here]

Folktek Mescaline - Hybrid V2 Channel , V1 Motion , V1 Mental, frame and PS

via this auction

"One complete Folktek Mescaline with frame power supply and collection of duPont patch cables.
This is a hybrid of V2 Channel and V1 Motion and V1 Mental.

This unit is in great shape. The only blemish of note is 1 patch point that shows some wear but is fully functional. See pics for detail.

The power supply has a 3 part pigtail that powers all three modules from a single wallwart rated at 1500ma.

Includes original manual and some other info.

Mescaline is one of the finest times you'll have. It might seem intimidating at first but ultimately once you dive in, you realize there was nothing to fear and it's only here to help open you to extreme possibilities. It's capable of creating entire compositions and the possibilities are vast. -

Each of the 3 boards are eurorack compatible and can be installed in a eurorack system individually or all together. Each has its own eurorack power plug on the back. Each module is 44HP
Each of these boards is capable of being powered on a standard 12v adapter. Each has a 2.1mm jack on the back.
When used together, all power can be jumped to power all three boards off the same 12v power source or eurorack power source.
A 12VDC power supply and 3 way jumper is included in this sale.

A 10 note polyphonic synthesizer with a sweet, warm sound and a huge custom designed reverb which also has an audio input and can be used to process external sound. Channel becomes a powerful effects processor with some very nice DSP designs we've been working on for the past year.
-A touch-based synth which provides a sweet sounding 10 key oscillation based 10 filtered and reshaped analog square wave oscillators, each with a decay on the amp.
-Each key is tuned individually and can be tuned to specific notes on the back via tuning trim pots so you can create intervals or pitch arrangements as you like.
-Master pitch control (with control voltage) lets you change the tuning of all notes simultaneously.
-10 note polyphony and all notes can be triggered.
-Synthesis passes through any of 4 selectable custom DSP effects - reverb which is huge and near infinite, notated tight delay, pitch shifter delay and palindrome reverse delay. Each effect has mix, two controls over effect changes and a low pass filter or damping.

V2 has Gain stage adjustments on Channel
V2 Noise filtering on Channel
V2 pitch range trim pot added to allow for great control of the master frequency

-3.5mm jacks represent audio in, audio out (x2 = right and left), cv in.
-Jumpable headers for all functions as well as power.

Motion is made up of two sequencers with simple but fully-capable function and some added function that other things don't/can't perform that help Mental to really shine. Both sequencers have clock division to break the rhythm but perhaps most important is how the trigger sequencer works - using opto-couplers (switches) to trigger parts within Mental to create sounds, textures and rhythms that voltage sources simply can't. It does this by directly connecting multiple parts within Mental. The CV does a great job of synching Channel.

Motion also has sine modulation (vactrol or cv), gate triggers, resets for the sequencers to determine sequence length, and can got into chaotic territory but jumping voltages into the clock inputs.
-8 part CV Sequencer
-8 part trigger sequencer with multi-add functionality
-5 part clock division for each sequencer
-vactrol-based sine modulation
-3.5mm jacks represent clock in, cv sequencer clock out, cv sequencer cv out, modulation out, trigger sequencer clock out.
-Jumpable headers for all functions as well as power.

Capable of so many things. It's an incredibly unique drum synth that will create odd and beautiful beats for days. It's a Drone synth that's generates some incredibly rich drone with multi-oscillation and in-circuit filtering. It's an audio processor that can take any incoming audio and chop it into place, filter it, distort it and screw it in ways that nothing else does.
-Based on the root synthesis of other Folktek instruments Materia, Mentalis and Matter.
-17 input points to control synthesis and filtering via the sequencer trigger or cv points as well as the clock division points.
-removable breadboard to allow for development and experimentation.
-4 patchable pots to attenuate signals and gain more control *and/or* create direct patches to create drone scapes or use Mental as an audio processor.
-volume control
-3.5mm jacks represent audio out and two vacant with representative headers to input voltage or audio signals from external modules or audio sources.
-send Mental to the input of Channel to add reverb to the signal.
-Jumpable headers for all functions as well as power."
