Modular Acid Techno Jam with TR-909 for upcoming Unpatching Modular Synth Rack Performance

video upload by Honeysmack

"Hello friends, I'm now on Patreon This jam is the precursor to my unpatching acid techno modular rack, where Patreon supporters get to see the preview! In my next video I will do the opposite of patching from scratch, instead I will unpatch this little performance - now you've seen the jam, next I'll unpack this performance and modular rack and explain how it was created.

This is the rack I've been using recently for my recent live shows, I thought it might be interesting to unravel how I put this rack together as it evolved over the last few months. And like every modular rack it will come to an end and I will move onto another rack with the amazing Cwejman SM-1 - but that's a video for another time 😅 There'll be some previews of the SM-1 on Patreon very soon.

If you want to know how I make and perform techno and would like to hang out or get some personalised tuition - directly from my studio, whether you're starting your techno making journey or you've been making bangers for some time, then take a look at my Patreon page for more details. 😉

🎛 Gear used in this video:
Intellijel performance case, check the rack details on ModularGrid:
*Roland TR-909 - kick, hi hat and rides [off camera]
*Playdifferently Model 1 mixer [off camera]
*Elektron Analog Heat [off camera]
gear that is off camera for this video will be revealed and discussed in the following unpatching video!

All improvised and recorded in a single unedited take."

Hardcore techno's alternative history - Case: Dance of the Anthropoids - Electric Byway

video upload by Electric Byway

"Was the first released prototype of hardcore techno actually released in 1968 in Finland? In this video we take a look at the history of hardcore techno and speedcore, and a particular 1960's experiment of high tempo rhythmic electronic music and its creator.

EDIT: A little correction: 'We Have Arrived' from the 'Reflections Of 2017' 12" was on white label in 1990, but officially came out in 1991 on Planet Core Productions and Industrial Strength. Thanks to Spastmatiker for pointing it out.

The resulting mood is intentionally closer to a lullaby than to the original minuet character.

Moog Memorymoog Plus

via this auction

"This was an original Memorymoog that was upgraded to Plus in the 80’s when Moog was offering customers the upgrade option. The unit has firmware v4.1 which was the latest OS released before they stopped production. Synth was fully serviced top to bottom in 2020 by the incredible techs at SwitchedOn in Austin. Keys look, play, and feel like new, all knobs, buttons, wheels, work perfect. Synth sounds incredible and all 6 voices work perfectly and stay in tune."

Sequential Circuits- Prophet 5 Rev2

via this auction

"The unit is 100% functional after a complete burn time . It's as stable and in tune as a serviced rev3 ;)

Currently set for 220v opeartion, but can be set to 110v with the voltage selector.

Great cosmetical condition, with a few age wear on the knobs, wooden cabinets, and mostly , the silk screen is a bit damaged / partially erased ( see pics : filter section , "record", master tune, below the preset switches) . Beside that, everything is very clean !

Please, note that the outside screws have not been put back yet for the photos :)

Work done on this Prophet 5 rev2:

- New power cable
- New AC switch (identical to the original one)
- New custom made power supply ( silent torroidal transformer + DC board), way less heat produced !
- Modern RAM/ROM module installed ( more reliable than 2708 EPROMs & 6508 RAM chips ..)
- New battery (and import of factory patches) -
Change of all tantalum capacitors
- Change of all polystyrene capacitors ( S/H sections)
- New Z-80 CPU installed
- Change of a dead LM339 (cassette section)
- Burnt resistor changed by a new one
- Change of all CMOS switches and opAmps S/H section
- Change of Init Freq trimmers for each VCO of the 5 voices (replacement by multiturns trimmers)
- Change of matched resistors on the voiceboard
- Complete calibration
- New "Prophet 5" metal plate on the back
- Complete disassembly and restoration of the keyboard (new bushings, Bus bar and J-Wire deoxidation, complete cleaning of the keys and the keybed)
- New jack output
- Change of all the potentiometers with new custom-made parts

- Not done by us, but worth mentionning :
This rev2 have a "dead-band" installed mod for the pitch bend, which helps a lot for a consistant tune . A kenton MIDI kit was previously added in the past & removed since, MIDI sockets are still here on the back, however, they are not connected to anything as the Kenton kit is not here anymore."

Crumar OMB-2 One Man Band Pedal Synth

Crumar Bass Pedals- Model OMB-2 Demo by J.J. (one man band )
video upload by James Owen

video upload by blenderhand

Note the videos above are older demos I found on Youtube. The listing below is from another seller. Note the low serial number.

SN A 2 via this auction

"Crumar OMB-2, crumar one man band. Extremely cool and vintage.

It produces a basic analog synth bass sound but has an external rhythm box.On the pedal board are 13 bass pedals and a volume pedal with 2 switches. One switch is used to have the chords switched to minor, the other to 5ths. Also 3 push buttons for start/stop, manual/auto bass and sustain mode. The rhythms are basic and only have a few controls for volume. You can control chords, rhythm and bass volume as well the overal volume. Some switches to enable or disable chords etc. are on it too.

Hasn’t been serviced since the 1970s. sometimes need to hold bass notes down for couple seconds before note is proper. Rhythm volume only working in one position for drums, all other volume knobs working fine."

Sound Sample: Loudest Warning Sing To Me (instrumental drone)

video upload by Matt Lowery

"Hi friends! Today I’m here with a pretty simple, short video showcasing the Loudest Warning Sing to Me panel. It’s a beautiful instrument, and combines a pair of Buchla 258’s with a small selection of serge modules in a single panel. The truth is, this was a video I captured as an Instagram post, but I was having such a nice time that 1 minute turned into 8 minutes pretty quickly! I remember when I was researching this format, there wasn’t a ton of content or sound samples of Sing To Me, so I figured I’d toss this out for posterity. A touch of reverb and delay were added in post. Have a great day."

Note this is the first post to feature a demo of the panel. One was listed for sale back in Nov here.

Some info & pics via Loudest Warning

"There are quite a few version of this around, some have different names.

258 VCO -> Triple Wave Shaper implementation: Above the 258 VCO’s is a Serge Triple Wave Shaper, normally this has three sections, but on panels with the above design the left hand shaper is one section, the right hand is two sections in series with VC 1 input tied to both of teh two sections simultaneously – configuration:

Bonus mixer between SSG and DTG: This is a simple unity gain mixer with two inputs and one output. On the other side of the DTG (between it and the Dual VCA) are two more outputs which might be labelled PEAK/TROUGH, MIN/MAX or AND/OR, these are all different names for the same thing, that is minimum / maximum outputs derived from the two inputs to the bonus mixer. Some mixers also have a Full Wave Rectifier output.

Most / all other modules are stock and info about use of these can be found on the internet, but here are some interesting things here:

Great information on Serge in general and the Wave Multipliers in particular!"

Feedback Modules 1 BIT MULTITAP DELAY / second patch / eurorack stereo delay

video upload by BRiES

"I wanted to upload a first patch, but that clip was too short so I uploaded it to Instagram instead (@bries_from_earth). This upload is the second patch I made. The 1 BIT MULTITAP DELAY is connected to the aux send of my mixer and I'm using both outputs as a stereo pair. There's a little bit of reverb on a seperate channel as well coming from the FX Aid.

Andrej focusses on sound and build quality and this module isn't any different. As I'm used from Feedback Modules the 1 BIT MULTITAP DELAY is very well constructed, the knobs feel sturdy, there's absolutely no wobble. The beefy knobs on this unit are just great."

"1BIT Multitap Delay is an adaptation of classic 1bit delays from the 80s to eurorack with many interesting add-ons.

Tech specs:

::OUTERSPACE VOYAGE:: on space cruiser PULSAR 23

video upload by kapillarkraft

"Well, the Pulsar 23 does a good job being a drum synthesizer/machine, but this time it shines at being a spaceship AND time machine. It can instantly sound like 60ies electronica, so it took me back to my favourite retro science fiction fantasies and influences.
Plain Pulsar 23, no overdubs, no external fx.
Thanks for tuning in!"
