"This was kind of tough to figure out. Programming the circadian rhythm in 5/4 is kind of confusing but the zoom feature really helps. The ASQ-1 is sequencing the rhythm the piano part with cv 1 and 2 going to two Dixie’s to have some polyphony then the lead part is just the keystep controlling an MCO."

Order the Source Of Uncertainty here:

Tiptop Audio and Buchla team up to bring you the Model 266t Source of Uncertainty. Inspired and designed after the legendary synths and instruments by pioneer, Don Buchla; the 266t will beckon back to early days of sound synthesis and bring to the modern day a key building block element to eurorack modular systems, random voltage creation and manipulation.

Gotharman's zaTurn Modular Synth Jam w/ NASA Chatter #TTNM


"I can't believe I never incorporated NASA sound samples into my space modular synth jams with Gotharman's Urano. So here's a stereo synth jam with Gotharman's equally cool new zaTurn synthesizer workstation!

I used the following NASA audio sample, played live into the zaTurn's analog VCF and effects with my smartphone:"

Interactive manual for the Pulsar-23

via SOMA Laboratory

"Mastering the interface of a complex semi-modular synth with hundreds of controls and functions onboard is not an easy task even for the most seasoned producer. It’s too much to memorize, and continuously checking the user manual gets annoying and interferes with the creative process. Even with using the search function you still end up scrolling up and down dozens of pages and going back and forth to understand how related features interact, a process that is more fiddly than convenient.

Why does it have to be like that? Instrument manuals - even for complex machines - are still just plain linear text with a structure that doesn't reflect the actual interface or workflow of the product it describes. Despite all the technological advances of our digital age, user manuals are still based on the same principles of how information was organized and accessed in manuscripts from over 2,000 years ago.

It's high time someone changed this! SOMA Labs designed a new and more user-friendly approach to synthesizer manuals that we believe should become the new industry standard, offering unparalleled efficiency and immediate access to relevant information through a visual (touch) interface.

What really is a synth's interface? You can compare it to a territory, like a town or a forest, where we have various objects placed in space. If each control has just one function we can compare it with 2D space, if we have multifunctional controls or menus we can speak about a 3D space. How do you best describe a space to someone else? Of course, with a map! What should a 21st century map be like? Interactive!

SOMA is therefore proud to present its new interactive manual for the PULSAR-23 drum machine, SOMA's most complex synth to date. It consists of a map of the synth’s interface where each element is clickable.

Just click on any button, connector or knob and get its description along with highlighting elements that are connected to or depend on it with the immediate possibility to check what they do.

As PULSAR-23 is a semi-modular instrument, all patching points have suggestions about which other patch points you could connect them to (about 1,000 patching tips!).

So it's also a kind of light patching tutorial.

The concept of interactive manuals can be developed much deeper and better, and we therefore invite our industry colleagues to further develop and refine this approach to user manuals for musical instruments. Let’s make synth manuals more user-friendly, easy to learn and more efficient, lowering the learning curve for new musicians and freeing up users' minds for pure creativity!

Welcome to the world of PULSAR-23!"

Plector (DiN76) by Parallel Worlds

"Greek synthesist Bakis Sirros who records under the name of Parallel Worlds has become a familiar name to followers of the DiN label. His debut release was 'Obsessive Surrealism' (DiN26) back in 2007 and since then he has released a further solo album, 'Shade' (DiN32), as well as several collaborative albums with different artists including DiN label boss Ian Boddy & Node guru Dave Bessell.

'Plector' (DiN76) is his third solo outing on the DiN imprint and continues the deep dive into organic, analogue modular excursions that this talented musician is so adept at. Throbbing, deep bass lines are accompanied by sparse drum patterns and beguiling melodic synth lines. The album has a beautifully cohesive, dark and brooding atmosphere. Hints of a John Carpenter like synth soundtrack lurk around every corner but the sound world that Sirros creates is very much his own. At times the raw beauty of his synth patches grab you whilst at other moments the delicate, glitch like sound design details hover just out of sight. The album is built upon two groups of three rhythmic tracks interspersed with the dark drone of 'Atmoform' and the beautiful, almost Enoesque final track, 'Harmonic Pathways'.

Lovers of Electronica, Dark Techno, Downtempo & IDM will find much to admire in 'Plector' and this new album once again showcases the unique talent of this highly individual musician.

releases December 9, 2022
All tracks composed, arranged and produced by Bakis Sirros during 2022.

5 things you can make with Virt Iter Legio stereo oscillator

video upload by Noise Engineering

"We're using our Virt Iter Legio stereo oscillator to make a Reese Bass, Hard Sync, Simple PM Voice, Stereo Machine, Wide Stereo Sound, Organ, and Utter Garbage.

a ripped bass, chorus chords, lasers, automatic arps, and subs that cut through a mix!

0:09 Reese Bass, Hard Sync
1:03 Simple PM Voice
1:52 Stereo Machine
2:22 Wide Stereo Sound
2:58 Organ, Utter Garbage

More about the Virt Iter Legio:

Virt Iter Legio is a 6HP stereo oscillator with a distinct and versatile sound. Its three oscillator algorithms – Bass, SawX, and Harm – will be familiar to users of our free Virt Vereor plugin and of the Arturia Microfreak both of which have the same oscillator modes.

Virt Iter Legio features independent left and right phase-modulation inputs, opening up opportunities for unique, gnarly sound design that takes over the stereo field, as well as a sync input for ripping hard-sync tones. It also features a vintage-inspired chorus: whether you want to create beautiful pads or hard-hitting bass, Virt Iter Legio’s massive sonic range will fit into any patch."
