Custom patches for GS-e7 by synth_nyc (FREE download)

video upload by GS Music

"We proudly present these 64 custom patches for the GS-e7 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer. The patches were made by synth_nyc and are now available to download from our website for free. In the future, they will be incorporated as factory presets."

"A few words from synth_nyc:
After designing some custom patches for Black Corporation Japan and GForce Software Ltd, I chose to design patches for the e7 because:

1. It sounds great to my ears and offer a complementary tone to all my hardware and software synth 2. It has memory
3. It has full MIDI implementation of all parameters, so I can remote edit it.

In addition; the e7 has some unique features, as far as I can tell, which really make it shine:
* Stereo output / voice spread with pan modulation
* 3 LFOs that can modulate pitch, PW, VCF and VCA
* Very cleverly / musically implemented features such as A/R velocity modulation, envelop KB tracking modulation, LFO rate KB tracking modulation, etc...

Not to say that the discrete VCO, VCF and VCA are a winning combo for a true analog tone.

Please contact GS Music if you need support.


synth_nyc first synth was a DX7 (mk1) in the mid-80s. synth_nyc always enjoyed programming sounds on the machine and it never appeared complex or non-intuitive to him. synth_nyc first analog synth was a MKS-50 (with PG-300) where he discovered that you did not need to spend 4 hours to design a great patch! After that, synth_nyc is grateful to have own classic and unique machines from the late 70s to early 90s like a CS-80, a Waldorf Wave, a PPG Wave 2.3, a MemoryMoog LAMM, Prophet 5 Rev2, Rev 3.3 and Prophet VS, OSCar, OB-X, Synthex, Sunsyn, Jupiter-8, Chroma, Hartmann Neuron and Voyetra Eight (the only vintage synth_nyc still owns) and many more! synth_nyc has learnt and enjoyed programming them all. Today synth_nyc is focussing his time on programming analogue renaissance hardware synths -with memories-; as well as new hybrids and new digitals, but also software synths as emulations, virtual modeling have come a long way; especially in the past year or 2 (so have computers) and are letting us enjoy amazing machines for a reasonable price, so close (or better) to the originals and hassle free."

Baba O’Riley (Modular Synth Who cover)

video upload by Planter Music

"Maybe I’ll go back and figure out what the second synth is doing but what a classic. I used the ALM ASQ-1 for the main synth arpeggio and then the bass notes. The metropolix is doing the secondary synth part and then the squid Salmple for the drums."

Casio FZ-20M Sampling Rack Synth SN 00679

via this auction

"Casio released the FZ20M in 1988, about three years after its predecessors, the FZ1 and FZ10M. The FZ1 was one of the first really affordable 16-bit samplers to hit the market and built up quite a following."

PPG & Therevox

"I used the expression pedal assigned to 'gain' on the Therevox, in order to be able to play the PPG with my left hand at the same time. Since I know some people will not read the description and ask: this is my improvisation, not an existing piece."

Eowave Titan Discrete oscillator with LPF from Mrg Synthesizers and Pico DSP ( no talking )

video upload by Dziam Bass

"you like solid sound ??... so Titan Discrete oscillator from @eowave_modular is for you, simple demo with LPF from @mrgsynth ... and add some reverb from Pico DSP from Erica Synths .

TITAN modules are elements from the Titan Capsule family. They are sound generators built to recreate the sound of Titan haze. These transistor based oscillators have a wide range and a very particular sound. 2 TITAN modules will create deep and vibrant bass.

Using the « densité des brumes » contriol, the sound will be shaped through Titan’s haze from deep basses to high pitches. The titan transistors generate a bass frequency of +/-15 semi-tones from 1Hz a 6kHz."

Minimoog-style Lead Sounds - Inspired by Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson, & the sounds of the seventies

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"These are just sound examples, but I am not a keyboardist, so please don't expect any Rick Wakeman/Keith Emerson keyboard wizardry. The intention is just to illustrate the kind of tones that can be created with the basic MiniMod voice in Minimoog configuration (Glide, 3 VCO's, Ladder Filter, etc), along with some overdrive/distortion from driving the audio levels hard.

Generally, input levels significantly beyond 12 O'clock (50%) on the Ladder Filter or Discrete Cascaded VCA should start to apply more overdrive to the audio from the VCO's or other Eurorack level signals. This will noticeably change the character of the sound at extreme settings.

The GAIN SWITCH module is also used a couple of times here, as it conveniently activates the high-gain mode featured on both the Transistor Ladder Filter & Discrete Cascaded VCA modules, which is otherwise set by jumpers on the rear of the modules. Using the Gain Switch just means you don't need to pop the module out to enable/disable the feature. Audio-rate modulation of VCO3 from VCO1 is added at a couple of points... just because it sounds good, not necessarily because it was commonly used in famous lead sounds.

Rick Wakeman has famously used the Minimoog throughout his career, whereas Keith Emerson is equally associated with the Moog modular system that preceded it. Since the AJH Synth MiniMod system is directly based on the early, more desirable R.A.Moog version of the Minimoog, whilst also being fully modular, this makes it an excellent choice for recreating the sounds of those original, iconic instruments, and going way beyond it in the world of Eurorack.

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #124: Wersi MK1 - Song 3

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the Wersi MK1. It's a 12 voice synthesizer from 1986 using a kind of additiv synthesis based on complex volume and pitch envelopes for up to 32 digitally generated harmonic's. In addition it has a single analog filter (in my version it's an SSM2045 filter chip) for all voices (paraphonic use).

I used for the recording the following FX chain: MK1 - Pigtronix Envelop Phaser - Zoom MS-70CDR - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)

Vaemi Shift Register

video uploads by Vaemi

via Vaemi

"Shift Register essentially stores the data in binary form, and it shifting the data in accordance with a clock signal reference. In fact, thanks to this feature, it is used for storing, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing data in a computer. Multiplication and dividing are actually the results of the shifting process.

Shift Register is a module that is designed for Eurorack systems, and it can run between 0V-+5V. It runs with a clock signal. This way, all the data entered through data input is synchronized with the starting and ending times of the clock signal. This module is a dual and 4bit Shift Register module. It can be accepted as a 4-step sequencer. The jack on the module that types data is input.Even if you enter a CV signal or gate signal, the signal you will get from the outputs is a 5V gate signal. The first output, on the other hand, gives out exactly the same pattern you entered in the data signal, only a better-synced version with the clock,while synchronizing with the clock signal, it shifting the written patten to another output as the clock arrives. In fact, as a result, when you enter 16-note clock signals, you get a 16-note delayed version of the patten you typed from each output. If you use this module in the audio rate range, you can run it like an oscillator with clock signals that are hearable for human ears. In this way, while patching with square waves in Logic, you primarily get different phase degrees of the data (square wave) you entered.

The module also has a reset input. If you send a trigger or a gate to this input, Shift Register will delete all the data in its memory.

When you record data in the data input in the momentary flow and stop the clock signal, you will see that 4 steps, which is actually 4 bits of data stay frozen inside the module. At this point, if you redirect one of the outputs to the Shift Register's data input, and if you give the clock signal back again, the pattern will enter a 2-3-4 step loop according to the output that you use. This pattern will go on like this forever if you follow these steps.The pattern you recorded is probably out of phase in comparison to the clock signal; however, you can also select the phase of the pattern by starting the Shift Register at different times.

Another method is that you can enter the same clock signals in the second Shift Register because it is a 2-channeled Shift Register module. If you direct the 4th output of the 1st Shift Register to the data input of the 2nd Shift Register, you can extend the Shift Register up to 7 bits."
