Korg Introduces modwave native - wavetable synthesis powerhouse - now available for Mac and Windows

video upload by Korg

"Korg is proud to present modwave native, the fully-compatible software counterpart to the hardware modwave synthesizer.

Synthesis powerhouse with distinctive wavetable timbres, Kaoss Physics, and Motion Sequencing 2.0. Now available as a plug-in for Mac and Windows.

In 1985, Korg’s DW-8000 combined digital wavetables with rich analog filters to give users sounds which were impossible to create with analog oscillators. It’s still a cult favorite today.

The modwave, released in 2021, builds on the DW legacy and transforms it into a modern monster synth, featuring incredibly deep wavetable oscillators, gorgeous filters, wildly flexible modulation, sophisticated pattern sequencing, and macro controls to deliver unique, powerful, and easily customizable sounds and phrases.

Now, Korg is pleased to announce modwave native, the fully-compatible software counterpart to the hardware modwave synthesizer. modwave native is available in VST3, AAX, and standalone formats on both macOS and Windows, as well as AU on macOS. You can seamlessly exchange sounds between hardware and software. Produce in your DAW with modwave native, and then play the same sounds on stage using the modwave hardware. Create sounds with the hardware’s hands-on interface, and then share them with a computer-based collaborator. Plus, you can use any of the many third-party sound libraries available for the hardware modwave, as well as sample libraries designed for either the modwave or wavestate.

Owners of the hardware modwave are eligible for a crossgrade license to modwave native at the special price of US $49.99, via a coupon code tied to the modwave hardware’s unique ID. Using the hardware and software versions together, you can have the best of both worlds: a physical instrument that responds to your touch, and complete DAW integration.

To generate the coupon:

1. Download modwave system version 1.1.3 or later and modwave Editor/Librarian 1.1 or later.
2. Update your modwave hardware, and install the new Editor/Librarian.
3. In the Editor/Librarian, open the File menu and select "Get Plug-in Coupon…"
4. A dialog will appear with the coupon code; follow the on-screen instructions to use the coupon in the KORG Shop."

Johnson J Station and Prophet 600, Korg Volca Keys, Cheap guitar pedal and synths

video upload by Expanding Sound


A friend of mine gave me this Johnson J Station multi effect pedal. I'm thinking its their version of a Line 6 POD. These cheaper old multi effects often don't do much for me on guitar. I usually hate the sound. So I thought I might give it a quick spin through a couple synthesizers. Here I used my Prophet 600 and a Volca Keys. Hope you enjoy it! Show less"

Synth Brochures from Randy Piscione's Archives

video upload by Randy Piscione

"Midiverse - TV recently posted a video of vintage synth ads, which I noticed on Matrixsynth [posted here]. This got me thinking about my own archives, mostly from the 1970s and early 80s, so here's a not as slick as theirs slideshow of my stuff. Music includes an Anushri, FVS, some ARPs and a K2600XS."

Erica Synths x Sonic Potions LXR eurorack Module with x Andrew Huang GHOST

video upload by Nightlife Electronics

"Here we have a nice little example of how nicely these two amazing modules play together. We have the LXR Eurorack module from Erica Synths x Sonic Potions; which is a 6 voice percussion synthesis module capable of some crisp, hard hitting digital timbres. This runs into GHOST from Endorphines in collaboration with Andrew Huang; a super versatile high quality sounding effects engine that can be routed in a number of unique and interesting ways.

Both modules are available at Nightlife Electronics:"

COOL trick on a Minimoog Model D 2022 Reissue Feat Linndrum and Prophet 5

video upload by Allen Michael

"For sometime I was trying to figure out how to sequence the moog without a daw. I sent the linndrum hi hat to the trigger input on the new minimoog. Very easy.

Tip #1 You have to quickly tap the key or else it will hold out the note for too long.

I like the new minimoog it’s fun."

Gliss: Modular Synth Touch Control

video upload by

Find us on Crowd Supply:"

"Gliss is an elegant and intuitive synthesizer module for touch control. This Eurorack module lets you draw waveforms directly into your system so you can add a human touch to your control signals. It also can act as a signal visualizer, slider, or expressive capacitive keyboard. Gliss is small but powerful (4HP), and allows you to control your signals through high-precision touch sensing. See how waves behave with descriptive and immediate visual output via LEDs mounted behind the touchplate.

Modular synth systems are complex musical instruments, and parameter control is usually through buttons, knobs and sliders. These beloved interfaces are great for precise and accurate control but are not the most performative, and can feel one step removed from the actual control signals. Gliss introduces a kind of touch control which is intuitively and immediately connected to the output signals: you can literally draw the shape of your signals directly into your system.

Powered by the technology behind the Trill capacitive touch sensors from Bela, Gliss has high-resolution position and pressure sensing which is used in combination with a Cortex-M4F microcontroller to create complex behaviors like drawing in waveforms and looping them, with captivating visual feedback from the embedded LEDs. Gliss gives you control over the signals in your modular synthesizer in a way that’s inherently musical.

Control your modules directly, with touch position and pressure sent out as control voltages
Record in gestures, up to 1 minute
Loop the recorded gestures to create LFOs with custom waveforms
Trigger the recorded gesture for custom envelopes, use the button or an external trigger
Play on a 5 button expressive keyboard
Scale and offset all CV outputs to get the perfect range for your other modules
Visualize and process CV and audio signals in your system

KORG PS-3100 - Synth Demo

video upload by synth4ever

"Korg PS-3100 vintage polyphonic analog synthesizer demo. During a visit to the Vintage Synth Museum in LA, I had a chance to try the Korg PS-3100 analog synth. In this demo I briefly noodle and tweak some parameters to show some Korg PS-3100 sounds.

The Korg PS-3100 was released in 1977 and has 48-voices of polyphony via 12 divide-down oscillators. The Korg PS-3100 has 2 LFOs, Resonator, multiple envelopes, Ensemble effect, patchbay, 3-band EQ, 12 scaling controls for intonation control, 48 keys and CV/Gate connections.

The Korg PS-3100 is very rare as apparently only 600 were manufactured. It's successors the Korg PS-3200 and PS-3300 had even more capabilities. The sound is very rich and warm, and is excellent for nice brassy tones. Hope you enjoy the demo."

Raindrops On A Familiar Face - Improvisation For Prophet 10 And Rainy Day By Friendly Noise

video upload by Friendly Noise

Patch notes/video description:

"An improvisation with the Sequential Prophet 10. Everything is coming out of a single preset, by editing the sound in real time, with no pause while recording. No splits or bitimbral presets were used.

Sorry, there is no video of the recording. I was just playing and recording for fun. After 10-15 minutes I thought the recording could be worth listening, so I kept playing and forgot to lunch. :-)

There are some pops, clics and abrupt sound changes. That’s live recording! Also, no sustain pedal was connected. Consequently I couldn’t reach all the notes and edit the sound at the same time as desired. That’s the beauty of live recording!

The out of the Prophet 10 is strictly monophonic, but delay and reverb were added in the DAW in order to get some stereo movement."

OXI One - Matriceal Mode demo

video upload by OXI Instruments

"Matriceal Mode is one of the new features of the 3.0 UPDATE and it is tons of fun. A generative mode with 4 independent sequencing tracks each of which have 9 different and independent parameters lanes.

- INTERVAL (with MIN and MAX settings)

They are independent parameter tracks or lanes because the can all have different:

Plus each sequencing track can have different:

All parameters are randomizable with a simple tap.

You even have a built in euclidean sequencer to quickly draw triggers

Some of the parameters have a chance per step of happening which makes it even more unpredictable! 🎛

💡Assigning different lengths and speeds to different parameter lanes can create evolving and complex patterns with very few steps; this is the magic of the Matriceal mode. And you have 4 tracks in one single sequencer to experiment with!"

Roland Jupiter 4 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer SN 780605

via this auction

"This is the legendary Roland Jupiter 4 built in 1979. The first true polyphonic synth that Roland built. It came out around the same time as the Sequential Circuits prophet 5 in the late 70's and was cutting edge at the time. Super collectible with beautiful robust design and will beat any digital emulations or copycat keyboards. It still has the plastic seal on some of tags and is in pretty decent cosmetic condition considering it's age.

This is the earlier version with the well known BA662 filter."
