Hydrasynth Sounds Influenced by the Sequential Prophet 5

video upload by Tena Lock

"So I am about to sell my Hydrasynth (mostly financial) but I thought, before I do, I will have a go at cloning some favourite style of sounds as I am in the good position of owning both, and have a lot of sound design experience.

There are no delays or reverb effects on these sounds.

I was going to make a full bank but rather than fill it with 'fill' I just chose the best 6 sounds because if I buy a back there are usually only a couple of sounds that interest me in reality. I will get a whole bank for one sound I really like.

The hydrasynth is no Prophet 5 but I think I have managed to capture some magic beyond what I previously gave it credit for.

Some thoughts: A Hydra with an analog filter though like the Arturia Mini Freak that just got released, it would make a huge difference IMO. A hydrasynth plugin, I personally prefer digital synths in plugin form, I find it so much easier and faster to work with.

Anyway, This was the best I could get synthesising and adjusting the Hydrasynth for many hours to arrive at these sounds. Pretty happy with the results, and learned a lot. These are the kind of sounds I like."

Noise Engineering announces Xer Dualis and Sinc Pravus, two new hardware modules

Los Angeles, CA — Noise Engineering is excited to announce two new modules. Xer Dualis is a 6hp stereo mixer and Sinc Pravus is a 4hp configurable offset. Both modules will begin shipping November 3, 2022, but will be on hand for in-person demos with a limited number for purchase at Synthplex this weekend (October 28-30, 2022), in Burbank, CA, USA.

New Modules
Xer Dualis is a compact four-channel stereo mixer. Use the individual left and right inputs for your stereo signals, or just the left input for a mono signal: it normals to the right one. Each channel has a mute and an individual level control so you can fine-tune your mix to your taste. XD’s stereo output pair features a simple meter and a clip indicator to help keep your mix clean. Xer Dualis is a great choice whether you need a submixer for a large system or an easy way to mix all the elements of a portable case together. Availability and pricing: Preorders open now. In stock in black and silver. Shipping from Noise Engineering and retailers starting November 3, 2022; MSRP US$170

Notable features: Xer Dualis
● 6 HP
● Stereo mixer
● Switch mutes
● Clip indicator
● Great size for any system

Sinc Pravus is a workhorse of a quad offset in 4hp. Sometimes you have the perfect CV signal, but it’s just not in the right range. Enter Sinc Pravus. Each of Sinc Pravus’s four channels are controlled by a dedicated potentiometer with an LED for monitoring signal outputs. The input jacks are normaled from top to bottom so it can offset the same signal by different amounts or simply act as a mult.

Use the back-panel switch to configure Sinc Pravus’s offset range to either ±5 or ±10 volts. With nothing patched to the inputs, the channels can be used as DC-voltage generators, especially useful for controlling multiple CV destinations with a single parameter.

Availability and pricing: Preorders open now. In stock in black and silver. Shipping from Noise Engineering and retailers starting November 3, 2022; MSRP US$140

Notable features: Sinc Pravus
● 4HP
● Configurable range for either ±5 or ±10 volts of offsetting
● Use normaled inputs to mult signals or offset one signal by different amounts

Strymon Mobius: Complete walkthrough on synth

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Strymon's Mobius was released in 2012 and since then has been widely regarded as one of the best modulation multi-effects. To still be at the top after 10 years you need to be doing a lot of things right. The Mobius certainly delivers on build quality, sound and ergonomics. Originally I thought it would be a somewhat boring but useful machine to cover generic modulation duties that weren't worth a separate dedicated pedal. But it turned out the Mobius does all the usual stuff extraordinarily well but then gives you all sorts of other interesting and experimental stuff on top.

Here I go through all the global functions, common parameters and specific options for all 12 effect types, and program a sound for each one. For all of them I'm using the same bland single oscillator sound from the Rev-2. So this is not really a sound design tutorial, it's aim is to show the many and varied capabilities of the Mobius and give you the confidence to know and exploit its full power.
Finally, I bought the Mobius at full price with my own money.

Arturia Minifreak // The Evolution of DIGITAL/ANALOG Hybrid Synths

video upload by Starsky Carr

"How does the Arturia Minifreak sound compared to one of the best hybrid digital/analog synths ever created? Not really a comparison but a look at how the Minifreak stands up against vintage class. and the Prophet VS is pure vintage class!

They're 2 Different synths so I'm not doing a strict like for like comparison - that wouldn't make sense - but I'm exploring if there's a start difference between modern and vintage units. Do vintage units have a certain je ne sais quoi do they have a life, depth and fizz we just don't seem to be able to recreate in new instruments?"

Octave-Plateau Electronics, Inc. Voyetra 8 SN SLR681

via this auction

"Up for sale a super rare and awesome Octave Plateau - Voyetra 8. There were only a few hundred of these made and you almost never see these for sale!
Selling as is.
Known Issues are: Audio outputs do not pass signal although the headphone out does work correctly. Unison L is not working but Unison R is working.
Other than that there are some scratchy switches & pots from age which are to be expected. I contacted one of the original guys from Octave Plateau and he stated " the Voyetra serial is one of the last batch manufactured so is probably a Rev4" The Rev4 is the most desirable version works with MIDI librarians like MIDI Quest Pro and has advanced SysEx. Earlier versions have a much more limited UI.
Midi In cable included. (XLR Male to Midi) See shop description."

You can find a demo of one here. Note the EX-2 is not the pre-cursor to the GX-1. That would be the EX-42 (1970–1977, stage model, design origin of GX-1)" according to the list of Yamaha products on Wikipedia.

WAVES for Tera Pro

video upload by VirSyn

"The WAVES module adds classic Wavetable synthesis to the sound palette of Tera Pro. It’s an optional module which you can purchase separately. Wavetable synthesis is a sound design technique which uses morphing oscillator waves to create sounds.

Wavetables can store a variable number (From 1 to 1024) of different frames/waves, allowing you to scroll through from one wave to the next, creating a new level of movement in your sound design. This movement can be stepwise as in the famous early PPG synths or smooth (using interpolation) and antialiased for a polished modern sound. Tera Pro WAVES allows you to explore this entire range.

WAVES allows for different waveform frame sizes in the range of 128 up to 4096 samples per cycle and up to 1024 frames. More than a thousand public domain wavetables covering most areas are already included in WAVES, and more can be added by the user.

Available on the AppStore

Some key modulatable parameters:

Table position
Pitch (with or without keytracking)
Phase modulation
FM, with options for various oscillators, filters etc as carrier modules

Other parameters:

Hard and weak Osc Sync
Anti-aliasing (on/off)
Interpolation (on/off)
8-bit resolution option

And add all features of Tera Pro:

Massive range of LFO / envelope / miscellaneous modulators

First exploration. Ambient piece with Monome Norns & Grid – and the Fall script

video upload by Thoow

"An amazing device playing the Fall script.

Fall simulates falling leaves that slowly move down, controlled by wind and gravity parameters. Once they reach the bottom, as displayed on the display and the grid device, a note is triggered.
Leaves can be added and removed. When leaves move by each other they can trigger a rustling sound.

Audio and Midi recorded into Ableton. Midi from Norns is also used to trigger a Piano and Scarbo from Teletone that run in parallel with the Fall sequencer."
