OXI One sequencing modular, Hydrasynth, Sequential Take 5, Korg NTS-1 (Ambient, Generative)

video upload by Steve Flato

"@oxiinstruments OXI ONE sequencing Sequential Take 5 & ASM Hydrasynth Explorer. Signal from the Take 5 also goes into a Korg NTS-1. OXI ONE is also sequencing CC's on the Hydrasynth (changing the Macro parameters) & the NTS-1 (changing the FX parameters--using @sinevibes Dipole & Droplet effects).

The Take 5 is also run into the modular synth mixer send, which is using @bastlinstruments Dark Matter for the feedback sound and @intellijel Rainmaker for delay. Furthrrrr Generator doubles the Take 5 Voice as well.

OXI ONE is in Chord mode for the Hydrasynth and Stochastic mode for the Take 5 (you see the Take 5 sequencer on the OXI in this video)."

Tales From the Hedge No.3 - acid hedge-hop in the forest with no snow! Synths outside: MC101 TD3

video upload by drone-in-the-woods

"Thought I'd try to get a video with some snow falling but whilst the rest of the country received a dusting, here on the South Downs it just rained. It was so warm that I could play without gloves on!
This was my rehearsal take but as you can hear at the end, it had started to rain and so this is what I got before packing up :)

I'm running the 101 through the looper so that I can record parts into it, freeing up tracks on the 101 for other parts, whilst also getting to use the reverse feature.

Oh and nearly forgot...the small mound at the end of the video is a tumulus - a small barrow probably linked to the iron-age hill fort on the Trundle close by.

The Creative & Advanced Sequential Functions of Step 8 from Joranalogue // Eurorack *MEGA DEMO*

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have the highly anticipated and massively capable (of many things) Step 8 from Joranalogue! Step 8 is a sequential sampling register capable of sequencing, burst generation, gate delays, analogue shift register, hocketing, mute interjections, clock divisions, graphic oscillator & VCA-like behaviour … I could go on, the list of potential is HUGE!

The video roughly follows an order from more basic functions to more advanced, each patch offers a different musical example of that function and it serves as a tutorial to do lots of things with Step 8, learning its functions along the way. With that in mind I’d love to know what you’re favourite patch in the video is and if you have questions along the way leave them in the comments.

Ciat- Lonbarde Din Dadin Dudero

via this auction

"Yes it is a stereo filter but because it is based on the Rungler it is also capable of flights of aleatoric synth sound. Because of this it can stand alone or paired with other Ciat-Lonbarde devices. Watch Hainbach's THE BIZZARE BEAUTY OF THE STUBER [posted here] for more info and tips on how to approach this device."

IMAVAI #2 / 3 eurorack patches suggested by viewers

video upload by BRiES

"In this IMAVAI episode I try to patch a polyrhythm using clockdividers and function generators. I have a go with the Walsh bank on JENA as a source for triggers and audio for the LPGs on AGOGO. Finally I make a patch where I use the sine output of GENERATE 3 for audio and use the other outputs to module parameters on a wavefolder and a filter."

Yamaha Synth Space History | VL1 | Dom Sigalas

video upload by Yamaha Synths Official

"Come along as Dom Sigalas walks us through the ins and outs of the groundbreaking Yamaha VL1 virtual acoustic synthesizer.

The VL1 was the world's first musical instrument to use physical modelling. It was first released in 1994 and included 49 keys with aftertouch, 128 programs (voices), a breath controller jack, and much more. This duophonic synthesizer simulates the complex vibrations, resonances, reflections and other acoustic phenomena that occur in reed and wind instruments – a completely new approach to synthesis.

Synth Space History features demos of historic Yamaha Synths and Stage instruments."
