Exploring the Groove Synthesis 3rd Wave

video upload by James Hagerman

"Fresh off the loading dock from the gang over at @Groove Synthesis is my very own 3rd Wave Advanced Wavetable Synth!

I'm not sure how many of these are out there in the world yet, but I figured I'd hit record and try to cobble together some of my experience playing with it so far.

Fair warning: I am not a professional. My theories and opinions are my own and if I got something wrong in this video (yup), it's probably my fault.

Second fair warning: This is version 1.0 of the firmware. While I'm 100% okay with that, please remember that this is a brand new release and your experience may differ."

InTeRpAtChInG // Gotharman's URANO + Eurorack Modular Synth #TTNM


"Gotharman's Urano modular synthesizer in a box plays with a bunch of Eurorack modules ... also inside a box :D The Eurorack system plays a drone from the TuBaZ vacuum tube module, through an FX Aid XL's vowel filter. Modulation comes form Cutelab's Missed Opportunities and the Pittsburgh Lifeforms sequencer.

The Urano takes this self-patched madness and adds analog clock (through the Missed Ops), granular effects, two plingy synth voices, a synth drone, a slower synth voice and reverb - all sequenced with variable length sequencers, random generators, LFOs, etc. There's even master clock morphing going on.

No samples, just internal Urano synth engine sounds and Eurorack bleeps.
Phew ... well ... it's so good to get back into the synth wardrobe!"

Modeling (Clavia Nord Drum 3P - Modeling Percussion Synth // Arturia Keystep Pro Sequencer)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"I wanted to dive a little deeper in the synth engine of the Nord Drum 3P drum pad! So I used 4 of its 6 tracks (sequenced by the KeystepPro) to play monophonic synth parts and the last 2 tracks, to play live some drum sounds (kick and snare).

I was quite impressed by the versatility of the Nord Drum and how much it can be an expressive instrument! Hope I'll become a good drummer one day 😅

* Hardware used *

- Arturia Keystep Pro : sequencing 4 of the 6 tracks of the Nord Drum 3P"

From the manual:

What’s An FDN Reverb? FDN (Feedback Delay Network) Reverberation is a technique that, as many other digital reverb algorithms, uses delay lines to artificially add a sense of space to a sound. What makes an FDN reverb unique is that each of the delay lines (in the case of “FDN Verb” there are 8), are processed through a feedback matrix. In other words, the outputs from one delay line get scaled, and sent back to the inputs of the other delay lines. This, with a combination of internal filtering, and modulation common to other reverb algorithms quickly creates the dense reflective sounds that make up a good sounding reverb.

Ambient Hydrasynth Explorer // Tefty & Meems

video upload by Tefty & Meems

"Our first ambient jam with the @ASM Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth Explorer! Strictly used presets from the 'ambient' and 'arp' categories and tweaked from there. Everything was tracked to Ableton one at a time. Meems improvised vocals at the end. We've been posting a fair bit of ambient tracks recently, but we have a synthwave album in the works! Going to be done soooooon. Excited to share when the tracks are finished."

I don't have a cover song today. There is a self-improvised track that I recorded during the corona lockdown period. So he's a bit older. It's a melancholic song inspired by the power of nature and the power of life itself. We can only solve the problems of the future together. Stop fighting each other. stick together
