Just A Quick Test - Korg SQ-64

video upload by John L Rice

"Pure impulse buy because they are on sale right now for about 40% off! 🤓 It's a well made and powerful sequencer for the price! I'm using it here with one of my smallest 5U synths that I reviewed in my System Breakdown #4" [posted here]

Minimoog with old type oscillators playing and making sounds demo

video upload by Vykaar Tones

"The first versions of the minimoog oscillator were prone to drifting with temperature changes so were a pain to keep in tune at gigs and outdoor events. I have found however, that they can work perfectly well in a studio if calibrated correctly. This one has a serial number in the 8000 range and had multi turn pots fitted to the master tune and osciliator 2 and 3 tune probably in an attempt to make it more useable live. I have just finished servicing it. Now over 50 years since they were introduced it still sounds marvellous."

Diatonic 〽️ (Waldorf M 1.08 // MAM Adx1 // Arturia Keystep Pro)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"The Waldorf M just got a very nice update (v1.08) and it was a good reason to celebrate with a new video of the M in multi-mode, sequenced by the Arturia Keystep Pro.
My good old buddy the Music And More (MAM) ADX1 5-voice analog drum machine was also taken out for this special occasion to take care of the beat!
Recorded in one shot.

The 8-voices of the M can be limiting when the synth is used in the multi-timbral mode (4 parts), but hey, the creation of this channel was based on the concept of making music in a constrained environment, so it was a nice challenge again 😅

* Hardware used *

- ALL SYNTH parts : Waldorf M
- Output 1: PLUCK riff + Eventide H9 (Diatonic)
- Output 2: PADS + Darkglass Microtubes X (Distortion) + Walrus Audio Julianna (Chorus, Vibrato) + Strymon Bigsky (Reverb) + Pill Pedal (Ducking, triggered by the Keystep Pro kick's gate output)

"Holes In The World" - Polyend Play and Eurorack - 110bpm

video upload by Electronisounds Audio

"Track Recording Date: 10/08/2022
Tempo: 110bpm
Key: D#minor

Hybrid setup with Polyend Play as the main sequencer.
The Play is playing samples and also sending midi to all the gear on the desk.

ALL AUDIO is being fed into a 1010 Bluebox mixer/recorder where i'm mixing, doing some gentle EQ and compression, and recording the track. The track was then maximized in Izotope Ozone 9.

I then sync up the audio/video manually in my video editor: Luma Fusion on iPad.

Ambient Explorations pt.37 (Instruō Cruïnn)

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching! #modular #eurorack #ambient
In this episode of 'Ambient Explorations', I am using the recently-released Instruo Cruinn, which is a wonderfully sounding stereo through-zero phase modulated oscillator. All the stereo elements that repeat over time, which are sawtooth waves, are coming from this module, in case you wanted to know what it sounds like. It is being supported by its fellow family members: Instruo Arbhar for stereo granular elements; Instruo Lubadh, which is receiving the summing output from Cruinn, and slowing down or speeding up randomly by being modulated by Instruo/Divkid øchd; Instruo CS-L, which is going through Mutable Instruments Clouds to create a nice yet weird background texture (it sounds like people playing violins in the higher register); and Instruo Lion which is taking care of most of the modulation routings within the system.

HUE (No Talking) DEMO

video upload by Modbap Modular

"HUE is an audio color and textural processing effect, in 6hp eurorack format. Hue is comprised of a chain of 5 effects (Drive, Filter, Tape Saturation, LoFi, Compressor). Each effect imparts a particular coloration, tone, distortion, and/or texture to the source audio. With HUE, Drums bang with more intensity & melodies morph into lush LoFi tones."

via this auction

"A desktop tone generator module with a 16-step sequencer and an evolved version of the six-operator FM tone generator used in the DX7. This single unit allows the user to program loop patterns that combine metallic, dynamically changing FM sounds with AWM2 rhythm tracks. Featuring free EG functionality along with an intuitive user interface that stresses real-time operation, the DX200 was used in a wide range of cutting-edge sound crafting applications from loop-based music production to expansion tone generators for keyboard players."

Future Retro 777 Analog Synthesizer

"This is a brilliant 303 killing Future Retro 777 - very rare. Excellent condition with power supply as originally purchased from another owner many years ago.

The Future Retro 777 is a monophonic analog synthesizer with a digital sequencer. It employs analog circuitry and has a lot of hands-on knobs for instant sound tweaking. Please look online for further descriptions of this now classic legendary unit.

Only single blemish is one of the feet is missing - refer picture."

Patching in Sines

video upload by boxoftextures

"Sines, a new synthesizer from Cherry Audio. They're on a serious roll this year with new stuff! At first glance there's a billion controls and it seems like you'll never figure it out, but once you spend a few minutes with it things turn out to make a lot of sense. You have four oscillators, four LFOs, four envelope generators, and four slots in the modulation matrix. That last one may seem like an oddly small number but almost every control has its own mod routing, so in a way those four are like a few bonus extra ones.

The oscillators are, well, unique. For one, there's no waveshapes to choose from, it's all and only sine waves. Which seems odd at first! But like the mod matrix, you have a lot of controls to mess with the sines and create all kinds of different tones. It only took a few minutes of knob twiddling to see how it worked, and there's lots of possibility in the design. With all the modulation and tone shaping you can do I found that most of my early patches used only one oscillator. They just sound that rich. One of the patches in the video uses three of them, and I almost had to force myself to do that. And in fact, I'm planning on going back into that one and splitting it up, using the first two oscillators in a new patch and the third one in another.

So bottom line is that at first glance everything about Sines is just weird. Which is true! But it all makes sense and is really well designed, and the sound design possibilities are pretty deep.

As always, all patches are mine, and the end theme under the credits is two of the patches from the video over top of the drone I always use in my opening titles (which I made sometime in the distant past)."
