SOFTPOP SPII: OMEGA dB x BASTL Instruments (with patch notes)

video upload by Bastl Instruments

"We collaborated with OMEGA dB on some audio samples for our SPII.
You can have a look at his patch notes at our blog here:

Few words from Omega dB and patch download:

I’m very excited to collaborate with such an innovative brand as BASTL Instruments, which helps many artists to achieve very special and unique sounds. ​​I was lucky to explore in-depth at the amazing SPII Softpop Synthesizer. I've tried a lot of synthesizers. But I've never tried anything like it before. It's a small but mighty sound design tool. As BASTL says: “Softpop SP2 is a radical subtractive synth under the influence of unconventional digital control. It’s a rare beast that excels at both melody and noise in equal measure.” I totally agree with these words.

In this video, I made some patches to make it sound in different ways, in it sounds raw, with its character, using the native sequencer, slide, and scales. In others, I've added external processing with some of my favorite FX pedals, which gives it another kind of character. I also sequenced it with OP-Z's sequencer via midi, receiving clock, and pitch.

The video was recorded before the firmware update. The new firmware makes it an even more powerful tool, with new oscillator waveforms, and more features. So even more creative.

From Barcelona to Brno with love.


Midicake ARP - Modulating the MIDI Channel!

video upload by midicake

"This has been on the TODO list for ages and I was so happy with the results I had to share. :)

16 sounds in Ableton, each set to a different MIDI channel. ARP is set to modulate the output MIDI Channel on each arp over a number of bars.

Coming soon! MIDI Channel modulation will be included in the November firmware update."

Guitar Processed Through a Moog Synthesizer | Sound Recipes #51

video upload by Reverb

"Some synthesizers feature an external input, allowing the user to process things like guitar or vocals through the synth's architecture. Today we did just that with a guitar, a few pedals and the Moog Subsequent 25's filter. We used an LFO, set to random voltage and applied that to the filter for a subtle sample-and-hold-type sound. Check out the full Sound Recipe and many others here."

Crazy Vintage Synth Tour At Vengeance Sound

video upload by Doctor Mix

"Today I travel all the way to Germany to discover Avenger 2, yet-to-be-released plugin synthesizer by Vengeance Sound. More about it 👉"

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child who noted:

"If you remember Vengeance sound, they were makers of some very popular patch collections for synths such as the Access Virus, Waldorf Q, JP-8000, etc in the early 2000's [Virus C & Waldorf Q demos below]. They've since branched out into sample banks and their own VST's such as Avenger."

Futuresonus Parva 2010 Black

via this auction

It's hard to believe it's already been 12 years. You can find some demos in previous posts here.

"Parva by Futuresonus is an 8-voice digitally-controlled analog multi-timbral MPE-compatible polyphonic synthesizer. combining the warmth and fullness of true analog synthesis with the power, convenience and connectivity provided by a digital brain, Parva represents a huge step forward for desktop synthesizers. inside Parva are eight voice cards, each its own complete analog synthesizer, loaded with a plethora of incredible features:

3 digitally-controlled analog oscillators with a +/-5 octave range, hard sync and choice of triangle, variable-width sawtooth, and PWM waveforms
4 ADSR envelopes with choice of exponential and linear modes and looping option
4 LFOs with key-synced and free-running options and a wide variety of waveshapes including sine, saw, triangle, square, random and even stepped shapes
dual VCFs with 12 and 24dB LPF and HPF modes, a 12 dB BPF mode, self-oscillation and filter FM
to be clear - each voice has all the features listed above, and because Parva is multitimbral it's possible to distribute its 8 voices as desired across multiple patches simultaneously. on top of that, Parva is one of the very few hardware synthesizers to offer full MPE support. hook up a Linnstrument, Continuum, Sensel Morph or Roli Seaboard to unlock the incredible potential of per-voice velocity, pitch bend, pressure and modulation - and put it all to work just as you'd like with the Parva's 40-point internal modulation routing matrix!

in addition to its robust analog synthesis engine, Parva's hardware is geared towards maximum power and flexibility with minimum effort. Parva's main outputs and headphone output make simple L/R stereo synthesis a breeze, but each voice also has its own stereo 1/4" TRS line level output, enabling independent recording and effects processing of any or all of Parva's eight voices! the USB type B port makes connection to a computer host easy while standard 5-pin DIN MIDI I/O ports enable connection with controllers old and new. Parva's USB type A host port - a first among analog synthesizers! - enables direct support for USB MIDI controller connection. no more running power this way and signals that way. just plug and play!"

Roland Jupiter 4 w/ MIDI

via this auction

"The synth is in excellent condition, the CHD JP-4 KBD MIDI-Kit got installed last year by a professional in Leipzig, it also got a complete service at this stop.

A lush instrument, the sound is one of it’s own, way more characteristic as the Jupiter 8 in my opinion, warm vintage at it’s best. The CV-trigger options and the modulators are a lot of fun, together with the MIDI installed you can go for it.

Outside are some minor scratches, a little spot is painted over, also the wood on the side shows some little spots."

Yamaha FS1r SN O01085

via this auction

"Yamaha FS1r, rackmount synthesizer, FM synthesis, formant shaping. My synth spent it's life in a rack, but it has no "rack rash". Completely clean and fully functional. This unit has an amazing, incredible variety of sounds. MIDI in-out-thru. Four audio outs. Headphone jack."


video upload by After Later Audio

"Brooks - Brooks is a smaller thru-zero 4hp basic VCO that has all the basic waveforms, FM control, sync, and Time Reverse which simply reverses the wave. While it is a fully capable oscillator it works best as a modulation oscillator in the COCO system."

"Checking out the new MPC AIR Mini D plugin for the MPC One/Live/X/Force and MPC 2 Software. I go through the general features, a quick sampling of presets, make a patch, and compare it against the Behringer Model D, DIVA, and The Legend. Not a true scientific comparison! Just a general musician focused comparison.
