Oxi One, Töörö, Bluebox, MS70 - Sequenced Ambient

video upload by Waveformer

"This sequenced ambient jam features the OXI ONE sequencer, the Töörö wavetable synth, the Bluebox and three MS-70CDRs. It is inspired by @s1gns0fl1fe's Space Ambient Tutorial, but using a hardware synth, effects and a sequencer instead of software synths, software effects and a DAW.

The audio is recorded to SD card on a Bluebox recorder/mixer and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on a Canon EOS M50 mk2 with the included EF-M 15-45mm lens. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 17.

A new favourite patch on the Rev2! // Sequential Prophet Rev2

video upload by Lost Clouds (Tom Green Music)

"I've been digging into stacked patches on the Rev2 a lot over the past few months, and having a wonderful time! This is my favourite patch right now. So much fun to play, especially with the variation from the mod wheel.

The two layers on this one:
A: Lots of movement - shape modulation of both oscillators from LFO1 and then pitch modulation of each oscillator at different rates from LFO2/3 to give a very organic patch. 100% mix reverb from the effects slot, and full Audio Mod of the filter to give some high-end fizz. The mod wheel opens up the filter a little bit and reduces the filter envelope amount to stop the sound from getting too harsh.

B: A double drone - key tracking is turned off for both oscillators and they are tuned a fifth apart (C7 and G7). Layer B again uses a 100% mix reverb, plus a little filter resonance and audio mod, but also includes some low-rate filter modulation from LFO1. The mod wheel controls the VCA Env Amount (essentially the volume!). Layer B sounds very metallic, almost like a dreamy synthy sitary combo, and when added to Layer A gives really thick chords with a glorious continuous drone from the two oscillators."

Haven for Crows | A somber ambient instrumental live performance with Yamaha SK30 and Rhodes Piano

video upload by MIDERA

"Listen to my music here:
Purchase my music here:

I wrote this track today, after setting up my Rhodes and SK30 again after reorganizing my studio (for what must be the 100th time this year).

It's been a rough year. 2022 has not been kind. It started with COVID19 in early January, followed by two herniated discs, a wrist strain, a knuckle injury, torn abdominal muscles, a broken toe, knee pain, and more. Many of these issues continue today - some days I wonder if the pains will ever go away or if they'll haunt me for the rest of my life. But what is there to do other than press on?

Yamaha SK30 going through Hologram Microcosm, Rhodes piano fed through Strymon DIG, and both with a little eventide Blackhole VST."

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!
Made this short 10-minute ambient piece using Cycling '74 Max, and more specifically the modular engine called Beap, as well as Jitter. Everything was recorded into an element called 'Recorder'. Did some slight EQ and compression adjustments in Ableton after that, but very minimal to stay true to what was recorded in Max.

Alesis A6 Andromeda 61-Key Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Alesis Andromeda A6 (A6 is an acronym: A - A, 6 - SIX, and their consonance corresponds to "ASICs" which is an abbreviation for "Application Specific integrated Circuits") is a 16-voice, 16-channel multitimbral analog synthesizer by Alesis which was released in 2000 and discontinued in 2010.[2] The Andromeda has analog oscillators and filters combined with modern digital control. It can be considered a hybrid of older and newer technologies, but its entire signal path is purely analog. The VCOs have a very practical pitch correction function, a feature missing on other old polysynths. The VCOs have FM and ring modulation and sub-oscillators. These features makes it possible to create a much wider sonic palette than usual on analog polysynths."

MiniMod & Ribbon Controller - AJH Synth Eurorack Ambient with Gemini 2412 'SEM' style Dual Filter

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"A 2-voice ambient performance using the Doepfer ribbon controller with the AJH Synth MiniMod eurorack modular system, here incorporating the Gemini 2412 'SEM-based' dual multimode filter/VCF. Simple 2 note/2 VCO chords are shifted in pitch with the Ribbon, and pressure sensitivity used to control the Gemini's overall frequency, and the level of pitch vibrato from the Dual LFO module, which has a built-in VCA. A third VCO via the Transistor Ladder Filter creates a single oscillator drone sound (a square wave with pulse width modulation/PWM), whilst the Dual LFO also modulates the frequency of this VCF, and both VCF's on the Gemini in position to each other. The Gemini is used as a stereo filter, with both going of it's VCF's going to separate VCA's and audio channels to creates a stereo panning effect.
The Gemini can be used as 2 filters in series, or in stereo with a single audio input signal, but here both filters are processing a different VCO via their individual inputs, whilst the global Dual Frequency CV function of the module's central mix bus section allows them both to be controlled in unison, in addition to, or instead of their own individual CV control. This offers a huge amount of flexibility.
A suitably large reverb is added in post to add a film/movie soundtrack quality to the sound.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Sunday Arpeggios With Model Cycles

video upload by Perplex On

"#ModelCycles in arpeggio mood today. Sequenced externally in this case using #StepPolyArpUnit on an iPad. First in a random fashion cycling through all six midi channels but then going into all channels at the same time to use all six voices together. Next to the live tweaking of the parameters, each track on the cycles is not only using internal LFO modulation but also velocity responsive modulation via the pad setup for each track, so it responds to the changing midi velocity of the incoming notes.

Served with projected visuals made with HeavyM."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #128: SammichSID - Song 1

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the SammichSID. It was designed to be a streamlined, compact version of the MIDIbox SID synthesizer DIY kit. Designed around two SID chips, it is two-voice multitimbral with a total of six oscillators.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
SammichSID - Zoom MS-70CDR - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Duo Mono 👥 (Make Noise 0-Coast + H9 // Moog DFAM + Multicomp // Arturia Keystep Pro)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Going quite minimalist again with this jam featuring only 2 semi-modular analog mono synth (0-Coast & DFAM) and 2 effects (Eventide H9 & EBS Multicomp).

The Arturia Keystep Pro (KSP) was used to sequence both instruments (although I also used the DFAM's 8-step sequencer too 😄). I used 3 tracks on the KSP:
* Track1 - sending gates to sync the 0-Coast clock (for its Sample & Hold LFO) and to the DFAM
* Track 2 - sending CV to the DFAM to transpose its 8-step sequence (with some CV being sent with a 20% probability)
* Track 4 - sending CV & Gate to the 0-Coast to play the main riff (on 2 patterns).

So no MIDI involved for this time, only CV/gate sent between the Keystep Pro, 0-Coast and DFAM 😉

* Hardware used *
- SEQUENCE : Make Noise 0-Coast + Eventide H9 (Tape Delay)
- DRUMS/BASS: Moog DFAM +Erica EBS Multicomp
- Sequencer: Arturia Keystep Pro (+ DFAM's integrated 8-step sequencer)"
