Minimal Hard Techno Set with Erica Synths Techno System!

video upload by Electronisounds Audio

"This set was made for a special Happy Birthday livestream for Inky Da Cat!
Big Ups to the KDK-DJ's crew for inviting me to be a part of this special show!


I built this set around an Erica Synths Techno System, and added more sequencers, filters, samplers and effects. I prepared some bass patterns in advance on the Erica Synths Black Sequencer to give the set some places to go. The entire flow / arrangement is all improvised.

This is the longest "Eurorack Only" set i've done to date. It took a LOT of work to build the setup and many hours of practice to get the flow down and remember everything. I'm really proud of how this turned out - WOOT!

ADDAC712 is a dual channel discrete gain staging ampli- fier, based on a famous discrete preamp board from the 70’s used in some legendary equipment.
What caught our attention was the character of it’s clipping and resulting saturation/distortion.

The module can be used with modular signals to add a distortion/fuzz character or as a preamp for an external source such as a line source, keyboard, guitar...
It’s also a great side companion for our ADDAC711 Balanced Inputs.

At the top an On/Off [BYPASS] switch routes the signal into the Effect (Up: Active) or to the bottom output gain stage (Down: Bypassed).

The ammount of amplification is set by the [GAIN] control, the maximum ammount of amplification can be set by the user using the [MAX GAIN] trimmer.

Up to ±5.5v the incoming signal will keep it’s integrity, beyond this point saturation will start to increase.
At aprox. ±6v a hard clipping will start to occur, this clipping also has a particular quality that at extreme levels it drifts the audio 0v bias reference, moving it upwards which results are similar to a Gate effect.

In the middle, an x2 opamp based output gain stage with a clipping led, which monitors the clipping at the output, and an [OUTPUT] control to set the output volume.

Having the top and middle gain stages provides flexibili- ty allowing the user to completelly distort the signal on the top stage and tame it’s output level with the second stage.

At the bottom, Input and Output for both channels (Left input is normalled into Right input).

This module will also be available as a full DIY kit.

Waldorf M - GEOSynths Review & Sound Design.

video upload by GEOSynths

"I've been sent the Waldorf M to try out for a few weeks and thought I'd do a little Review, more of an overview really and some Sound Design, showing how the different sections work together in practice when making a Patch.

I've used 2 FX Plug-Ins as there are none built in, however they are just simple Chorus & Delay/Verb. It's a cool Synth, very good build quality and has lots of features to play with, especially the the Digital Filters and the Envelopes.

I didn't cover everything as I ran out of time, however I've covered quite a lot and anything that i haven't, well, there are other Videos out there which have."

RS055 RS Tech Support: EVS-1 Editor Setup Tutorial

See this post for an audio only demo.

3:45 Win95 editor running in Windows 10
6:18 Outro

"The Evolution Systems EVS-1 is one of those machines slightly too far ahead of it’s time. Requiring a computer for convenient editing might be pretty common now, but back in 1990 it was a pretty new concept. So I guess many original users of the EVS-1 never actually used the editors and when the computer formats these editors relied on became obsolete, the EVS-1 was doomed to become an obscurity.

But today, through the wonders of emulation (and the surprisingly vast capacity of windows backwards compatibility) it’s quite easy to expirience and explore the EVS-1 the way it was meant to be used.

In this tutorial I will show you how to set up the editors for Atari (via emulation on Linux) and Windows 95 (inside Windows 10 through some fiddling), all you need is explained in the video, links to all files can be found below, as well as all the commands mentioned in the video (for convenient copy+paste).

First the links:

The editors, as well as some outstanding patches can be downloaded as zip files from (scroll all the way down):

The patch banks linked on the ancient Evolution site can be found here:

An Atari ST disk image containing the editor can be downloaded here:

Now about the commands you have to enter to install hatari on linux, to install snap support (if needed) enter these commands into a terminal:

sudo apt update

followed by

sudo apt install snapd

to install hatari enter

sudo snap install hatari-emulator

Now for the Windows 10 part, Installation.txt tells you to copy the file MSSTDFMT.DLL to the root directory c:\, you can find MSSTDFMT.DLL inside the Install folder.

Next you’ll have to bring up the command line prompt, this can easily be done by typing cmd into the windows search bar. Instead of just running the command line prompt, right click the symbol and select run as administrator. If you’ve done so, you can follow the next step from installation.txt and type

regsvr32 C:\MSSTDFMT.DLL

and press enter. This will register the dll file and make it executable

And now for the tricky part: the other file mentioned in installation.txt is called comdlg32.ocx an trying to register the file in the same way as MSSTDFMT.DLL will result in an error message because it’s a 32 bit ocx file and therefore needs to be registered in a special way. So unlike mentioned in installation.txt, copy the file into the c:\winodws\sysWOW64\ directory and type

%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx

I hope this works for you the way it has form me. If you run into communication errors, restart both the editors AND the EVS-1, sometimes it took me some tries with both editors but in the end it ususally ended up working just fine."
