"'Entreaty,' by Hélène Vogelsinger

We are honored to share this performance by Hélène Vogelsinger filmed on a mountain in the south of France. A full description and patch notes by Hélène are included below!

To hear more of Hélène's music, head to her Bandcamp page:


"An abandoned modular session. In a famous small village, in the south west of France, there is a little mountain. At the top of it, what used to be a cableway station for 60 years, have been still standing there, in the hands of Entropy, for more than two decades now.

The abandoned sessions in Nature are always the most challenging, but also the most transformative. The path that leads to the chosen place is often long, steep, and lined with many obstacles.

Climbing this mountain, In the full darkness of the middle of the night, with only headlamps, and all our distorted senses, as only indicators, quickly becomes a type of active meditation, especially on the session day, with our heavy equipment.

And finally, you start to distinguish the contours of the huge station’s antenna, getting bigger and bigger, as we move on, meter by meter on the last hundred ones.

When we arrive, the connection is immediate. There is nothing comparable to this precise sensation. The surrounding sounds blend together, compose these familiar but unique melodies, in a calm and quiet mind, ready to receive.

Patch Notes:

In this session, the combo XPO + QPAS is at the heart of the patch, omnipresent.

The multi-dimensional aspect of these two modules truly resonates with the multi-dimensional experience I live through my process, and in these post human places.

In this patch, I use the XPO’s Pulse Width modulation and wave-folding stereo outputs, as well as the triangle wave one. The signals are then multiplied and sent through different filters and effects, QPAS being one important of them, here using its Low Pass and Smile Pass outputs. The different parameters are modulated by Wogglebug + hands.

This combo is accompanied, among others, by extra MN family’s members; Strega, STO(x3), DPO, Optomix, Morphagene, Maths, Mimeophon, Erbe Verb.""

The Cableway Station

"Entreaty" ; behind the session

An immersive experience into my creative process.
A spiritual & musical pilgrimage on a mountain,
in the south west of France.

For those you've been following me for the last years,
you know i've been working around and refining a
special creative process.

The different steps of my creative process are ;

1. The Research of the Place
2. The First Exploration
3. The Retranscription
4. Layers of Perception (session day)
5. Sharing the Experience.

In this mini documentary, step 2 "The First Exploration",
and 4 "Layers of Perception (session day)" are mixed together.
The ascension on the session day was so challenging
physically & mentally, that we couldn't record a lot during it.
We are a small 2 people team 👥

It is an excerpt of a longer documentary that will explore
all the steps of my process, coming in 2023.

I hope you will enjoy the journey with us .

Rare Novation MidiCon - The Prototype for the MM10! Which later turned into the Bass Station

video upload by Edward Jones

"This is the MidiCon -- a controller keyboard that 'never went into production'. However, I am here in Melbourne, and I have one.
This turned into the MM10, the controller for the Yamaha QY10 and QY20.
The same chassis turned into the Bass Station.

A very rare controller keyboard pre-dated the MM10, which begat the BassStation.
The main CPU has custom markings!

324U 3E v2.0"

One was up for sale back in October, 2021. That's the only other Novation MidiCon post featured on the site.

Elektron Song Mode: Will it break? // with Digitakt & Digitone

video upload by Dave Mech

"In depth courses for Digitone and Digitakt! Get here:

Thought I'd try and sort of break song mode creating an IDM-ish break beat. It didn't break (but then it did, didn't it? I'll let myself out).
Anyway, really going to town with it is actually a lot of fun. It's created with Digitakt and Digitone where Digitakt is using song mode with a lot of tempo changes, repeats, quick pattern changes and more. It took some heavy programming and calculations but the result is interesting I think.


myVolts Candycord Halo Cables

myVolts wrote in to let us know about their upcoming Candycord Halo Cables. The following is what they had to say about them:

"They're a range of coloured modular patch cables with discrete led lighting elements within their connectors, lighting up when Control Voltages (CV) passes through them. They work beautifully in modular, semi-modular and CV controller keyboard scenarios.

For the Halo range, we've partnered with a top musician and video producer. we'll be revealing who next week. He was deeply involved with the design process of these cables so we're confident they will satisfy the needs of even the most discerning modular / tabletop / desktop / electronic musicians. We've a page people can sign up to get notified when the campaign goes live, and get a free gift:"

Additional details:

"What is Candycord Halo?
Last year we brought you Candycords, a beautifully designed, hard-wearing set of audio cables. This year, we are extending that to modular patch cables.

Why Halo?

We've decided to bring flashing lights to your beautiful music. Halo modular patch cables have discrete led lighting elements within their connectors, lighting up when Control Voltages passes through them.

Just one colour?

The cables will come in a range of colours and a range of lenghts. Their will have bi-colour LED pairs, so depending on polarity of voltage passing through them, they will change between LED colours, e.g. Blue to Red.

Will they be pretty?

They will be extremely pretty. But mostly useful, lighting the way for active ports, pulsing to the frequency of the CV signal, showing clearly patch pairs and paths on your system.

Is that all?

No. There will be lots, lots more. We've spent the last year working with a very special partner to ensure that we shake some trees in the modular world, solving some of the problems we see as getting in the way of your creative expression. We hope you'll join us on this journey, over the two weeks of the campaign, where we take things further, yielding new possible improvements as the campaign progresses. We need your support and feedback.

Are these cables just for modular?

Please no! We hope to show you that CV is everywhere in musical universe and demonstrate some useful and inventive ways to use it. If you can see it, it's a lot easier to make use of it!"

Setting the new bar that any powerful multi-effects processors should look up to, Eventide's H90 Harmonizer pedal flawlessly covers effects ranging from delays, pitch-shifting, and more, all with the ability to run two algorithms at the same time. Building on the platform established by the H9, H90 is the most powerful pedal Eventide has ever produced. You could think of H90 as two H9s in one pedal, but it also packs in numerous new effect algorithms, routing options, and performance features that transcend the capabilities of traditional guitar pedals. And with a completely overhauled screen-based interface, H90 is a pedal that you'll always want to be tweaking.

H90 offers a total of 62 different effects algorithms: 52 returning from the H9, and ten all-new effects taking advantage of H90's impressive processing power. Among these, the Polyphonic algorithm sticks out—it makes use of Eventide's proprietary Spectral Instantaneous Frequency Tracking technology, or SIFT for short. The result is stunning, as even the most dissonant chords and timbres are shifted with perfection. Regardless of your chosen effects, you can use two of H90's algorithms simultaneously, which means you can stack delay into reverb, tremolo into chorus, or any other combination that your heart desires.

With two effects algorithms available at once, H90 also provides incredible flexibility in arranging signal flow. Series and Parallel routings are easily achieved, but even more possibilities are available with external effects. Unlike most pedals, H90 has four inputs and four outputs, with the secondary pairs available for use as two mono inserts or a single stereo loop. Insert loops may be placed anywhere on the effects path, whether it's before, after, or in between H90's algorithm blocks. Alternatively, head into the Global Settings and enable dual mode, which decouples the algorithms into their own independent signal paths, allowing you to set up four-cable method connections with your amp, process two stereo instruments independently, or any other niche audio scenario.

H90's effects and audio routing is only part of the story though, for this pedal sports incredible control capabilities. In Perform mode, you can assign effects parameters to macro-style HotKnobs, instantly recall settings with scene-like HotSwitches, or keep a handful of essential controls at your disposal by assigning them to the QuickKnobs beneath the screen. But if that's not enough for you, H90 also offers two controller ports for expression pedals and auxiliary footswitches, as well as MIDI control over USB-C or traditional 5-pin DIN. Nearly every aspect of an effect may be assigned to an external controller, along with numerous global H90 parameters.

Along with all that you can do on H90 itself, Eventide also offers a companion H90 Control app to configure the pedal from a computer. But the app also provides a graphic interface for quickly adjusting any parameter in real-time, as well as helpful preset and program backups. Considering how powerful it is, calling H90 a pedal almost seems like a disservice. But like the H9 and the other Harmonizer rack units that came before, H90 is a rare instance of a jack-of-all-trades and master of all when it comes to effects processing.
