Synths and Apps. EP2: Noise Patterns.

video upload by Igor Vasiliev

"Bass line - Moog SlimPhatty with sequencer Doepfer DarkTime. NoiseBox device with filterbank Akai MFC42 and Roland Space Echo RE-201 generate noise and glitch. All output processed with VintageRack app with effects - PhaseBox (phaser), Dimension D (chorus), EasyFlange (flanger), TremOvibe (tremolo and vibrato), TubeSpring (spring reverb).

VintageRack (iOS, Mac, Audio unit) effects could be a great addition not only for single instrument, but also as master effects for mix bus of several sound sources. When using an external audio interface this app is very convenient for live performance.

Rare Dynacord ADS-K Keyboard Sampler

via this auction

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me.

This appears to be the first one to be featured on the site. Also see the Dynacord ADD-two.

From the listing:

"Here comes the rare keyboard version of the ADS, namely the ADS-K, under the hammer!

The ADS/ADS-K dates back to 1989 and raised the 16-bit bar a little higher with 20-bit converters. On the one hand, the ADS ties in with Dynacord's drum sampler history and, on the other hand, with their PA products (the well-known DRP-20 dates from the same time).

Extremely slick 80s design. Is - for my taste - only topped by the white version. But I've never seen them for sale. But the black version is also impressive. Who owns a Dynacord keyboard!?

Can also be used as a master keyboard due to the good synth keyboard and the large contact surface for computer keyboards or similar.

The features:
- 16bit with 20bit D/A converter
- Stereo sampling
- 16 votes
- 2MB, expandable to 8MB
- reads S-900 floppy disks (but I was never able to try it due to the lack of the sampler mentioned)
- Re-sampling (can sample itself)
- Additive synthesis with 64 harmonics
- Modulation matrix (see pictures; That's right, we also know it from another device, especially from the ramp generators. The software was said to have been programmed by the same gentlemen.)
- Internal mixer with loop-in path
- Individual outputs
- SCSI connection (I haven't been able to try that before, but it should still work)
- Good synth keyboard with effective dynamic conversion
- more features: see Internet

Unfortunately, the 33 years have left the following traces:

- The top two buttons are broken and beyond repair. I took them out of service and temporarily glued them on for cosmetic reasons. Didn't turn out that well - you can see a slight difference in height in the pictures. I hope the construction survives the transport.

- The upper right segment of the right 7-segment display is defective. You can see that in the pictures. "00" should be displayed. But that doesn't matter when playing, because you primarily look at the display and the button labels.

- The lower octave keys are slightly yellowed.

Scope of delivery:
- Dynacord ADS-K
- Original box
- Power cord
- Disks with sounds (unfortunately some of them are no longer readable)
- Leftovers/components of the two defective keys"

Digitakt Live Production with Tips and Tricks

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this stream Matthew (aka EZBOT) from Patchwerks explores the Elektron Digitakt's. This stream will focus on sound design and tips and tricks.

Get the Elektron Digitakt here:

If you're a beat maker on the lookout for a powerful, compact drum machine and sampler, look no further than Digitakt from Elektron. This formidable piece of equipment is built to withstand heavy use, with high-res encoders and back-lit buttons that are rated for 50 million presses. The ultra crisp OLED screen makes it easy to navigate the clear and streamlined user interface.

But what really sets Digitakt apart is its impressive feature set. It comes with a digital, highly flexible sound engine and sampling capability, a live-friendly sequencer, and dedicated tracks for controlling external MIDI gear. Plus, it's compatible with Elektron's Overbridge software, which allows you to fully integrate Digitakt with DAW environments.

But that's not all - Digitakt also comes pre-loaded with over 400 samples, including electronic and acoustic sounds, drum kits, and FX. The sample collection is rounded out with a selection of high-quality acoustic drum kit samples from That Sound, ensuring you have everything you need to start creating, experimenting, and producing right away.

So if you're looking for a compact drum machine solution that will enhance your computer-based rig and make beat making a rewarding experience, look no further than the Digitakt.

Redesigned with an ultra-durable ABS-polycarbonate red enclosure, the QuNexus RED from Keith McMillen is the same compact, feature-rich, 25-key MIDI/CV controller you know and love, but with a few upgrades. Aside from the aesthetic change, the new QuNexus is fully equipped to handle the MPE software and hardware."

And a couple outdoor performances by David:

12.8.22 // Remote Ambient Modular Synth performance.

video upload by david rothbaum

"This was composed, recorded and filmed at the ruins of Camp 16 in the Angeles National Forest. At one point this was a Nike missile site. Then later it was a training area for inmate firefighters until it burned down in the 2009 station fire where two firefighters were killed defending the camp.

It is a rather somber place, but also quite beautiful.

Thanks for watching."

12.15.22.// Ambient Modular

"This was composed & recorded at the Chilao campground in the Angeles National Forest.

I very rarely have a destination in mind, more a direction. I drive until I find a spot that I like then usually I have to hike around a bit till I find a spot to actually set up. Then, once all the gear is set up I sit down to compose. The composition process in this case took about two hours. After that, I set up all the camera gear, film the performance, then get the B roll. In this case the entire process from leaving the house to getting back home took about seven hours.

This is the first time I used the @1010_music Bluebox to record. It was awesome to be able to do a remote performance and get a multitrack recording that I could fine-tune once I got back home."

For the best spot that hate you the most in your ear connected to your brain.

The original engine is from sputnik Radio. A standalone device.

But because of the big tuner you can find totally different sounds.

It’s also possible to play with lights .

Bad Gear - FL Studio

Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about the Image Line FL Studio. Is this piece of audio software, released in 1997 under the Fruity Loops moniker, nothing but a meme daw or is actually superior to other programs like Apple Logic, Cubase, Ableton Live, Avid Pro Tools or Bitwig? Why does it trigger "real musicians" so much?

"This is a mega-tutorial about how to program the Krell sound from the 1956 film "Forbidden Planet" on a Waldorf Blofeld. You should expect heavy use of modulation and modifiers. But first, we are going to have a look on the history of the Krell patch. Then we start programming with the help of my "Blofeld Modifier Simulator".

Additional Krell posts

[demo] 10 Minutes of Krell Patch (Blofeld)

"This is a demonstration of a self-playing eternal patch, programmed on a Waldorf Blofeld synthesizer. A lot of modulations and modifiers were used. There was no external post-processing and no external effects were applied. The hands were off the unit and the keyboard, though the arp is playing very slow and long 'notes'.

'Krell' is an alien species from the film "Forbidden Planet" (1956). The soundtrack for these creatures was composed by Louis and Bebe Barron and very popular among modularists. It's a good example for an aleatoric patch - a sound playing with the help of randomness."
