PWM Malevolent meets the DB-01 (No FX & No talk)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"What better to team with a dirty DB-01 than an absolutely filthy Malevolent :D Here the DB-01 feeds the Malevolent some CV and provides a percussion-like bed for some simple keyboard noodlings. This isn't an exploration of the Malevolent, more just a momentary discovery that I recorded. I'm not sure that the knob and cable positions were all significant but small changes made big differences so I kept to playing with the filter and resonance knobs (which deserve to be a lot bigger) and a little touch of FM1 and FM2 amounts, all slopped over with near-maximum drive. The setup: The DB-01 is sending its clock to the Malevolent's back-panel clock-in (which keeps the arp in sync). DB-01 CV out is going to FM2 in; and the DB-01 Gate Out to FM1 in. The Malevolent is also sending its own gate to AM2 in.
There's no effects on either machine, nor is there any DAW EQ or other fiddlings. It's all raw as you see it. The two scope displays show the direct output of each machine.
More Malevolent videos when I start to understand what's going on.

Physical Synthesis Cicada Acoustic Vibration Synthesizer & Nymph Eurorack Module Update

video upload by Physical Synthesis

You might remember the Physical Synthesis Cicada - Acoustic Vibration Synthesizer posted back in April of 2021 - you'll find a playlist of demos there. The initial run was sold out. They are now teaming with USA-based distributor Electro Distro on a new run of Cicadas as well as a Nymph eurorack module.

The press release follows:

NEW YORK, NY, USA: having sold out of its initial production run, unique products-producing hardware startup Physical Synthesis is proud to announce that it is working with San Clemente, CA, USA-based distributor Electro Distro’s growing global network of dealers ( to bring its game-changing Cicada — an ‘acoustic synthesizer’ that transforms electronic signals into physical vibrations that can be fully manipulated before being reconverted back into a new, never-heard-before electronic sound — to a wider audience in advance of Nymph, its upcoming Eurorack module…

It is fair to say that every once in a while, a moment comes along whereby human interaction with sound changes completely. Cicada is effectively one of those moments — one of those new instruments that moves the needle in music technology. Indeed, it is pioneered by unique products-producing hardware startup Physical Synthesis as an ‘acoustic synthesizer’ that transforms electronic signals into physical vibrations that can be fully manipulated before being reconverted back into a new, never-heard-before electronic sound. Says company founder Spencer Topel: “Cicada was the first step in introducing physical synthesis methods to the synth community; it is an award-winning interface that really lets musicians explore microscopic sounds with precise control.” Clearly, Cicada made musical waves when winning the Judge’s Special Award at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition 2022, hosted by Georgia Tech School of Music — one of the few schools in North America that offers Music Technology as a major in undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D levels of study — as an annual event dedicated to identifying the newest and greatest ideas in music.

Musical waves notwithstanding, ‘noise' is a subjective term; while electromechanical devices like speakers or headphones try to minimise the distortion inevitably introduced in physical systems, Cicada is designed to precisely exploit these distortion products as the basis of a new kind of synthesis. Cicada converts voltages to vibrations in a mechanical oscillator to create intermodulation — the addition of frequency content in a nonlinear system — in place of typical analogue or digital oscillators. By bringing the signal chain into a physical space, Cicada allows users to shape such content with natural, tactile gestures that truly transcend twiddling with a knob or pushing a slider. “As a violinist and composer, my experience of creating sound is highly physical,” proclaims Spencer Topel, adding: “With Cicada, I wanted to make an instrument that connects these elements, allowing musicians to produce complex, compelling sounds, but through tactile interaction.”

Insofar as actually doing what it does, Cicada receives two Eurorack-level signals that drive oscillation in a cantilevered Bridge positioned atop a Soundboard at an adjustable height. Digging deeper, distortion caused by the Bridge-Soundboard interaction adds frequency content to the input, determined by the specific qualities of the system. Self-explanatory Polycarbonate Soundboard, Foam Soundboard — made of EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate) foam, and Wood Soundboard — made of Birdseye maple — options each provide a range of resonating/filtering properties that combine uniquely with the likes of the Coral Wing Bridge — tip made of solid oak (resulting in a bright, clear tone), Coral Dual Tip Wing Bridge — tip made of premium rubber (allowing for a hard, precise attack with a balanced low-end), and Grey Wing Bridge — tip made of soft neoprene foam (resulting in a mellow, balanced acoustic effect); each pairing opens up a portal to a distinct sonic universe.

Users can dynamically change the system (and, therefore, how it is transforming signals) by adjusting the Bridge height, changing the region and degree of contact between Bridge and Soundboard, or applying pressure to either — effecting real-time, tactile timbral control, in other words. With that being said, premium vibration damping materials, such as Delrin, and custom circuitry minimise unwanted noise, allowing the intermodulation products to shine, while the output, captured by a pickup microphone positioned beneath the Soundboard, can be monitored directly, processed modularly, or recorded into a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).

With behaviours akin to those exhibited by a traditional acoustic instrument, Cicada is highly responsive to differences in the excitation mechanism — the input signal, in other words. As an example, striking a snare drum with a stick or using it with brushes produce vastly different-sounding results; driving Cicada with quiet or loud, spectrally simple or complex, or bass- or treble-heavy signals similarly yield very different timbres.

Though Cicada is designed to work with a Eurorack setup out of the box, one of its strengths lies in its inherent flexibility. Indeed, it can just as easily receive signals from a DAW, boosted to the appropriate 5-10Vpp level via an outboard mixer. Moreover, the choice of input is completely left open to the user: an Ableton Live loop run through Cicada acting as a physical filter to provide timbral variety over time, for example; an LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) from a Eurorack module, generating rich percussive tones on the maple Soundboard as the foundation of a beat; or a harmonically dense signal — similar to the output of a Max/MSP FM patch (which many would, without doubt, prefer to navigate physically rather than digitally) — made by moving the Bridge around the Soundboard to amplify certain harmonics and suppress others, finding a grittier sound with the Bridge barely touching or coaxing a more ethereal tone with it centred and depressed.

Endless exploration possibilities are a given, guaranteeing that any sonically-ambitious Cicada user is likely to while away the hours playing with input signals, system configurations, gestures, modulation combinations, and more.

It is hardly surprising, then, that Physical Synthesis sold out of its initial Cicada production run, really hitting a home run by counting luminaries like renowned electronic music composer and performer Hainbach — citing Cicada as being “The Tesla of electro-acoustic workstations, miles ahead of standard piezo and solenoid boxes...” — and Ableton CEO Gerhard Behles amongst its fan base, and has now turned to working with US-based distributor Electro Distro’s growing global network of dealers to bring its game-changing ‘acoustic synthesizer’ to a wider audience. “I want to bring acoustic synthesis to a wider range of musicians,” maintains Spencer Topel, before ending on a high note: “We are building some really exciting expansions of Cicada to different formats, including a Eurorack module called Nymph, which is coming soon.”

Physical Synthesis’ ‘acoustic synthesizer’ is now available as Cicada Founders Edition Extended — encompassing two dual AMPs, one PRE, one Actuator, five Bridges, three Soundboards, three Meanwell power supplies, three custom SATA Cables, and one custom Nanuk 935 Flight Case — for $2,700.00 USD or as Cicada Pro Series individual modules — starting at $79.00 USD — via San Clemente, CA, USA-based distributor Electro Distro’s growing global network of dealers ( or directly from Physical Synthesis’ online Shop (

Vector -- MPE Firmware Update 2.8

via Vector

We have MPE

More is more

When it comes to synthesizers, there is never enough expression. Long anticipated and carefully prepared firmware update 2.8 brings us into the family of MPE capable instruments.

The new features are also available to non-MPE controllers, and the parameters can be routed to mono or poly aftertouch, pitch bend, modwheel, key velocity and others. So, how does this work with Vector? Let’s press Enable MPE and find out.

What it does
Vector relies on immediate visual representation of what’s going on. Slowly or rapidly evolving, changing timbres are synthesized by mixing and blending together four sound corners by moving a mix point per voice along parametric trajectories or envelope-driven segments.

The new firmware 2.8 exposes the trajectory and synthesis parameters:

Horizontal and vertical position of the mix point
Suborbit speed and size
Amplitude and pitch
Filter cutoff and resonance
Amount of phase modulation etc. during synthesis
Vibrato and tremolo speeds and depths

Each note travels a different trajectory by controlling their horizontal and vertical position offsets.

Every suborbiter can have a separate radius and speed. Works with all trajectory types.

How is it configured?

The Routing Table

The whole routing configuration is arranged into a neat table — controllers to the left, destination parameters to the right. Each route can have an individually tuned translation function to deal with situations where 1:1 mapping is not enough to achieve nuanced expression. A small live preview thumbnail is provided for each destination.

A single source can transmit to multiple parameters scaled in different ways with different operators.

Each routing configuration is saved along with a patch, and a couple of tools are provided to ease routing organization between patches.

With new features come new responsibilities. Even though the new routing table is very intuitive, there are a few things to note in Vector’s handy manual. Grab the 2.8 update in online or pdf format.

Music Generated by IOLabs Flux for Sequential Prophet 10

video upload by Friendly Noise

"Flux is an incredible rhythm generating machine, but it can also make repetitive or evolving melodies. All melodies in the video are generated in real time by Flux. I used the Befaco VCMC voltage to midi converter to translate the analog triggers and voltages generated by Flux into midi messages that the Prophet 10 can understand.

On Mordax Data’s display you can follow the note triggering, with lower notes in the upper lane and progressively higher notes showing in the other three lanes.

Some delay and reverb were added in the DAW after recording."

Shaped Dual EnVCA

The Shaped Dual EnvVCA is a two-channel analog envelope generator with variable waveshaping and a stereo linear VCA. Unlike conventional analog envelope modules, the waveform of each envelope can be controlled with a slider or CV without changing the envelope timing. With a wide time range from an hour to 2.5kHz, and a plethora of CV inputs and attenuverters, it can be used as an LFO, audio-rate oscillator, slew limiter, waveshaper, ASR/ADSR/complex EG, independent audio/CV VCA, envelope follower, sidechain processor, and general utility module. Each channel has dedicated linear outputs plus attenuverters and offset controls for the variable waveshape outputs, making it an ideal modulation source and stereo VCA. 100% analog, 20HP, $339

2006 Infection Music Zeit Sequencer SN IMD5005

via this auction

Pics of the inside below.

Demo of the actual unit in the listing previously posted here. You can find posts and demos featuring different color schemes of the Zeit here.

via the listing: "I am selling a Zeit hardware MIDI sequencer made by Infection Music. I am the original owner of a 19" rack mount version, serial number 005, in complete working order. It is in near-mint condition aside from some minimal marks around the rack mounting holes and a couple of dents in the outer case (one in the back and one on the bottom) that were present on delivery in 2006. The dents do not break the surface paint.

The Zeit runs OS V01-39BR, which is stable and is nearly the final version produced. It is possible to upgrade to 41BR, but I am leaving it as per the manufacturer's advice. The following updates were minor, and it's best not to fool around with a functioning Zeit. The manufacturer no longer supports issues that might arise from an OS upgrade and is working on completing a CPU upgrade to extend the Zeit's lifespan.

I installed an upgraded CPU in 2009 received from the manufacturer, which may be why this one is still working correctly. I have a letter detailing the improvements in the new CPU. I received an email from the manufacturer in October 2022 stating that a new CPU upgrade should be available reasonably soon at an expected cost of no more than USD 200. The upgrade will dramatically increase program memory, add an SD card slot, and add USB.

A printed operating manual is included in the box. I have the manual in PDF form and can email it to anyone interested in learning more about the Zeit.

This is as rare a piece of electronic music-making gear as you might imagine. It was designed to be the ultimate hardware MIDI sequencer, which is impressive. I believe eleven rack mount units were produced, with probably a similar number of desktop units.

I made the attached Youtube video shortly after receiving the Zeit in 2006."

♥ Made By Heart - - - 4 - - - Audiovisual Jam Driven By The Heartbeat

video upload by Perplex On

"Jamming along my own heartbeat. Using an early alpha of an app by @floverse292 which uses the #applewatch to send a midi note with every heartbeat. I'm using this note further in various ways. First, it's used to cycle through 3 preprogrammed note sequences (with different step lengths and speed) in Rozeta Cells app, going into #purepiano. Secondly, the incoming midi pulses tap the master clock in AUM, resulting in ongoing timing variations including the delay effect which is synced to the master clock. And thirdly, the midi note is used to modulate the speed of the projected visuals to visualize the rhythmic flow of the heart pulses.

Added texture to all this with #UASilo, #UAlofiaf and #Rymdigare."

"I'm really loving the sound of the LPGs in Agogo. It gives the sound some bite without being full on saturated. Even with tame sounds it can really bring some life to the timbre...

Two Bits is used to add triggers (OR) together for the kicks and snare. I used a steady pattern for both of them, and then added a probability gate to the second intputs. Very convenient for adding variation to drums without too much programming.

Moonwalker is doing the 'sync' lead type sound (the module is off screen but you can see its output on the scope. I'm also still trying to find a reverb setting that I really like. This one is... almost there."
