Rising of the Lights | DSI Tempest and Elektron Monomachine demo

video upload by MIDERA

"Picked up this DSI Tempest in a trade (plus cash). Immediately said I hated it, but I guess I didn't really think about letting it have its own workflow. Typically I sequence drums, but here I did overdub and live sequencing (i.e., finger drumming) and I dunno, I guess this is the result after about 2 hours with the thing."

Sequential Circuits Pro-One Custom Sound Demo

video upload by soitgoesmusic

"A demo of the legendary Sequential Circuits Pro-One. A very musical sounding synth that has lots of great rhythmic modulation options.

Patches programmed and played by No effects added. What you hear is direct from the synth. Each part is from one patch only. There is no multi-tracking on any part.

- amazing vintage Prophet sound
- lots of rhythmic options with an arpeggiator, sequencer, and powerful LFO
- modulation setup is very useful
- easy to make it sound magical

- plastic case is cheap feeling
- no midi (but includes CV ins)
- can't save patches (though taking pictures can help)"

Razor (1:1 MI Blades)

video upload by After Later Audio

"The next installation in our MIC line of modules is RAZOR (1:1 Blades) a dual multi-mode filter with a lot of wonderful features. 11/16/22"

"This is an exact hardware replica of the Mutable Instruments Blades module.

Our model uses the original 'hard-to-find' opamps, but we do substitute V2164M with AS2164D. All of our products use AS2164D and there should be no measurable change in behavior."

Each of the voices reacts and can be modulated by another in various ways. The way the instrument is played is by using the touch sensitive pads at the bottom. Lyra 8 is ideal for drone, ambient, soundscape, nightmare sound making machine."

Pure Mat ❤️ (Moog Matriarch Dark // Arturia Keystep Pro) live jam, analog synth, raw sound

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Pure Matriarch raw sound: that was the main idea behind this jam!
I used the Arturia Keystep Pro to play the Matriarch mainly for 2 reasons: the chord memory and scale features of the KSP and the easiness to visualize the notes being played by the Keystep's ARP 😃

What's happening?
1- The jam starts with only one oscillator playing on the Matriarch. I then gradually open up the filter and mix in the 3 other oscillators.
2- At the end I switch on the SYNC on the Matriarch and we can clearly hear the sharp and metallic sound, very characteristic of synced oscillators 🤘
3-The lovely analog stereo delay is playing an important role here in the sound as it is adding fluctuations (its time and feedback being respectively modulated by its 2 LFOs) and stereo width.
4-Note that I used on the Matriarch the SPLIT VCA mode where the Filter Envelope Generator signal controls the level of VCA 1 (Left output), and the Amplitude Envelope Generator signal controls the level of VCA 2 (Right output).

* Hardware used *

- Moog Matriarch Dark
- Arturia Keystep Pro"

Plus, it features intuitive controls, compatible, easy-to-use sound editing software, along with a touchpad keyboard and slider to bring even more creative possibilities to your performance or production.

Two voltage-controlled filters
Two envelope generators
Voltage-controlled amplifier and low-frequency oscillator
Full programmability with 495 presets, 495 user programs and Quick Program
Dual FX engine with seven FX (six from the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet-6 synth)
Touchpad-style keyboard and slider
Scale Mode
64-step sequencer with Sequence Lock
Bright OLED display
Easy connection to a PC/Mac or an external MIDI device
Robust metal chassis

The Dreadbox Darkness is a Digital True Stereo Reverb effect pedal and it is a result of our collaboration with Sinevibes.
By combining two exquisite Sinevibes Algorithms, Dreadbox team took this even further by extending the code and making these suitable for use as an effect pedal. Dreadbox favours open architecture in most of their devices, so instead of having several switched algorithms, Darkness has a single versatile and flexible formula, that can create from Small and Smooth Reflections up to Huge Shimmering and Endless Reverbs.
Technically, Darkness is a Granular Pitch Shifter, followed by the famous large Reverb found on the Typhon synthesizer and ending up to a gate generator. In addition to this, there is also a micro looper that can hold up 150ms of the input signal, in order to create a freeze effect."

Ableton Megapack - The One now available - 30 multi sampled stereo Ableton Instruments from Moog One

video upload by Expanding Sound

"get the pack here

(This pack is compatible with Ableton Live 10.1.43 standard and above)

The Moog One truly is a modern day classic. You can create so many different types of sounds with it. This jam is a little disconnected, as I was kinda just jumping from part to part to showcase some of the sounds you get in the pack. This will be the first of possibly many packs that I create with this synth, as the tone shaping possibilities often feel limitless. This pack contains 30 Multi sampled instruments created using the Moog One. I didn't have a plan of attack for the tones. I just made what I thought sounded good. Hopefully you agree!"

TRiED / vaporwave / eurorack jam / resonator, reverb and delay

video upload by BRiES

"I set out to re-create a sound I heard in a Strymon Starlab demonstration video. I used the 1 BIT MULTITAP DELAY by Feedback Modules for delay and the washy reverb is my main sound routed through Rings and then through the FX AID (on a shimmer preset). The drums are Linndrum samples from the Soundforce S-LD because it fits the vibe."
