DB-01 with Light pedal feedback - and JPTR FX Add Violence

video upload by Richard DeHove

"There's something very satisfying about the DB-01 and dark, deep drones. Maybe it's the Polivoks filter and that big knob.

In this setup the DB-01 is going into the Gamechanger Audio Light pedal in Feedback mode with everything cranked. From there into the JPTR FX Add Violence pedal and then into the Nemesis delay. This order seemed to work better than the Light pedal after the distortion. There's no audio processing in the DAW. Quotes come from a 1940s movie through the Valhalla delay.

The original noodle - which I was trying hard to keep short and sweet - was eight minutes, but how much grinding feedback drone is too much? So here we are at about four. In hindsight it would have been good to have something after the Light pedal that could more severely mess with the feedback tone. Next time :D

EXTREMELY RARE PPG 1002 for Tom + first ever shop tour!!!

video upload by foleytronics fx repair

"Here is a demo of the EXTREMELY RARE PPG 1002 for Tom. Plus a bonus first ever tour of the Foleytronics shop!!

For those that want to attempt to tune this synth, here is what worked for me:

The trimmer by the regulators is the CV offset; trim for 0v for the lowest key. This interacts with the CV v/oct, which is right above where the two shielded cables connect from the 20-pin keyboard connector. Trim this for 1v/oct, which can be measured at the switched oscillator CV input jack on the back of the instrument. Once these are set, you can move on.

The oscillators are tricky. They each have an initial frequency trim pot and a volt/octave trim pot. However, the initial frequency trimmer cannot be set willy nilly to A440 because their initial tuning frequency greatly affects the octave selection switches on the top panel. What I found to be most effective is to set the MASTER TUNE front panel pot to 0, the OCTAVE SLIDER to the left of the keyboard to the middle and then begin tuning. Note, every trim pot for each oscillator will affect the others for that oscillator so this is an exercise in extreme patience.

First, turn off keyboard control for OSC B and roughly center its front panel tuning pot; set its octave to +3 and put a folded piece of paper on middle C. You are now going to tune the octave selector for OSC A; this part is confusing as there is a trimmer to adjust the octave selection offset for BOTH oscillators, but only OSC B has an adjustment to “match” its octave selection with that of A. Thus, you have to use that trimmer to get OSC A perfect and then match B to A - the method that worked for me was to switch between octaves for OSC A and adjust the octave offset trimmer along with the initial frequency trim pot for A to get a perfect octave selection for OSC A over the OSC B drone.

After the OSC A octave adjustment, it’s time to adjust B’s octave adjustment. Set A to +3, and switch OSC B to +1; adjust for zero beating at the trimmer in the upper left corner of the board right at the edge of the PCB. Then, switch OSC B back to +3 and adjust its initial frequency for zero beating; repeat this until the octave selection is perfect for B.

Now, it’s time to adjust for V/octave for each oscillator. Sadly, this adjustment affects the octave center calibration we just did, so you’ll have to keep backtracking until it’s good. Adjust the V/octave trim pot for OSC A, which is directly to the left of the CV v/octave we did in the first step. You’ll now have to mess with the init. frequency for A along with the V/oct to get the oscillator to track correctly on the keyboard, but like I said earlier, you have now probably slightly messed up the octave selection so you will have to go back and do that again. Then, adjust the tuning of OSC A again and repeat this process until OSC A tracks perfectly and has good octave selection. I couldn’t really get the +4 octave to be perfect, but hey, it’s a prototype and is probably 50+ years old.

Now for OSC B; it’s very similar to A. Use the V/octave adjustment trimmer which is the lower left trim pot on the PCB along with the initial frequency trim pot to get B to track along the keyboard. Again, you’ll have to go back and adjust the octave selection, but that’s not as bad for B because its octave adjustment doesn’t mess up OSC A’s octave selection. At this point, you should be able to get OSC A and OSC B to track the keyboard and the octave selections should be there"

Additional NOISEBUG Listings


The Wing Pinger from Meng Qi is an analog filter percussion desktop synth with internal feedback capabilities that can take you from gentle plucked tones to snarling feedback in an instant. The range of characters afforded by the Wing Pinger have to do with its shift register-based feedback FM routing, in which the output of each filter can modulate the cutoff of the other. Lest you think the Wing Pinger is a noisemaker and nothing more, the feedback FM can be dialed back to zero, giving you a playful, characterful dual filter-plucked modal resonator instrument to ping with the touch keyboard or even external audio. At sufficient resonance and feedback FM settings, the Wing Pinger can take on a life of its own, while touch control and robust MIDI and CV implementation make it versatile node in your setup regardless of its parameter settings. This version of the Wing Pinger comes with mini jacks for the CV I/O, making it a great companion for eurorack modular.

Wing Pinger Features

Dual filter/resonator instrument with internal feedback frequency modulation loop
Touch keyboard and finely tuned parameter ranges for expressive control

Stretching the Limits of Samples On The KO-II

video upload by Ricky Tinez

"The Teenage Engineering EP-133 KO-II can Alias Samples! Sampling sounds high pitch and then stretching them back down extremely far to get them back to a normal or a low pitch creates aliasing within samples, which is this amazing texture that I was able to get from my older MPCs, and it's a technique that has been widely used for a very long time. So can we do it on the new Teenage Engineering EP – 133? YES! You could also do this on the PO-33 pocket operator! I also pair the new KO-ii with my Digitakt so I don't run into the voice stealing issues I had in this video" [posted here]

"Wiggler and TX-6 Jam

My #synthdiy Wiggler is a simple expressive monosynth, like a minimoog crossed with a wooden flute.

I discovered it plays really well with distortion. I only tried this because I found the distortion on the TX-6. The TX-6 also lets me pipe the audio into my phone and monitor it while recording!

The patch is a sawtooth wave with wiggle modulation thru a low pass filter with press modulation. There’s also a decay envelope to whack the filter.

3rd Wave Update // PPG mode + Prophet VS waves

video upload by Starsky Carr

"As the spiritual successor to the PPG Waves the 3rd Wave has some secret sauce hidden under the hood to give us the same vintage vibes as the original PPG. And it just so happens this also works for the Prophet VS waves. The way the samples are processed gives us all the lovely 80s musical artefacts that make the classics so special.

Here I demo the Prophet VS waves and show how to load PPG style wavetables. So ... effectively we have a Waveterm - we can load any 128 sample based wavetable that has 64 waves.,

Check out my wavetable vid for some tips on how to do that." [posted here]

Pics of the inside below.

"This early Tonus era ARP 2600 synthesizer had oscillator sync added at the factory and also had its keyboard upgraded to the later 3620 model, which is duophonic and includes an LFO. The factory also installed the PPC (proportional pitch control) - a very useful pitchbend and vibrato mechanism found in the later Odyssey and Axxe. There was also an additional gate input for the AR envelope added too, so this arp's 2 envelopes can be gated independently.

We meticulously disassembled, cleaned, refurbished and future-proofed this unit, sparing no expense - a process that took a whopping 60 hours of skilled vintage synth tech labor, plus parts costs. It's now working like new again and will hopefully be much more reliable than any other of its type out there. The value of this work is of course included in our price which is justifiably higher than lesser examples of this beautiful classic instrument often being sold by amateurs disguised as store owners on a popular website.

We did lots of maintenance and preventative work to this instrument, including the following: All tantalum capacitors were replaced, the power supply was rebuilt, the faders, jacks and switches were properly cleaned and are free of crackle, the keyboard was fully rebuilt with new bushings, keys removed and cleaned, the unit was recalibrated, replaced many terminals / molex connectors to greatly reduce the chance of connection issues, cleaned keyboard connector, key contacts and bus bars, replaced cinch jones receptacle, etc. There were a few other things done along with any necessary repairs.

The added oscillator sync makes it possible to make much more interesting sounds than any stock 2600 can. A CMS 4012 filter module, well known for its high quality sound, is installed in this unit. This 2600 has been tested systematically multiple times over many hours and is working perfectly and sure to make its next owner really happy!

Part of the extensive restoration process included re-coning the speakers. During final testing, we noticed what sounded like a slight distortion coming from the speakers that we determined was actually due to the 2 pieces of speaker cloth originally present in this unit between the speakers and the front panel, so we removed them and put them in a plastic bag which is now inside the unit in case whoever buys this unit wants them."

"Meticulously overhauled by the most critical professionals around and working perfectly, no excuses or surprises typical of most vintage sales these days.

In addition to any repairs, we paid our tech to do the following work to this example. Some of these are things we typically do to our Xpanders during restoration and some were to fix an intermittent tuning problem this unit had when we bought it from our customer who we believe was the original owner:

Recapped power supply
Cleaned panel and chassis
Removed, cleaned, lubed memory switch
Cleaned all other switch contacts
Replaced hinge screws
Replaced 2 output jacks
Modified panel overlay to resolve typical sticking switches
Cleaned all IC sockets
Resoldered IC sockets for all EPROMS and all RAM
Replaced several IC sockets
Replaced all operating system IC chips with new ones, latest version (2 for voice board, 4 for CPU board)
Replaced battery
Reloaded patches

This process required 30 hours of highly skilled vintage tech labor plus parts. This one had tricky problems that ended up being due to bad IC sockets. The problems were intermittent - the unit would sometimes work fine but would sometimes malfunction. Those are often the hardest problems to fix because you have to get them to recur. Our typical burn in process after servicing items is long, but in this case, we ran it even longer and shook it up a bit after figuring out and fixing the problem, just to be absolutely sure it was working perfectly, and now it is, so it's ready to make its next owner very happy!"

Cheetah MS6 Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer SN 16914

via this auction

Note auction links are affiliate links. See the site's privacy policy for more info.

"The Cheetah MS6 is six-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer in a 1u 19” rack. It was launched in 1988 by Welsh company Cheetah who blazed a brief but glorious trail through the world of music tech in the mid to late 80s before imploding in 1993. The MS6 is based around a fairly conventional two oscillator > low pass filter > dual ADSR envelope architecture implemented on six Curtis CEM3396 chips, one per voice, which were also used in the Oberheim Matrix 6, 6R and 1000.

The MS6 is often compared to the Matrix 1000 because of its similar form factor and circuitry. I can’t comment on how valid that is sonically because I’ve never used a Matrix 1000, but it should be noted that, unlike the Matrix 1000, sounds on the MS6 can be created and edited from the front panel without an external programmer. Although you may wish to add one, for reasons I’ll go into further down.

video upload by XOR Electronics

"Finally I am happy to announce you the new NerdSEQ firmware V2.0 and the new Multi-IO Expander release! There have been many updates since the initial release of the NerdSEQ 6 years ago but this time it is the most massive update so far!

Adding a new mapping screen which allows to modulate everything with everything, adding calculations and even simple scripting/code.
A new scaling screen with many scale presets, user scales and microtuning per note.
A new tracktype which allows polyphonic sequencing and the drummatrix to sequence Midi, I2C, CV/Gate ...
New edit modes to fill in notes/values and make sequences on-the-fly.
Updated Midi Routing allows the use of 3 independent Midi Ports with the Multi-IO Expander.
I2C support for distingEX, ER301, Just friends, 16n/F8R and clones....
External control of all parameters in the NerdSEQ.

There is much more in this new firmware and I squeezed even more out of the NerdSEQ hardware!!
As usual the new firmware is free to download on the XOR Website.

Also the new Multi-IO Expander is finally released which is the new Midi and I2C Expander. It got 3 Midi Ports:
- USB Host - Connect a Launchpad, Midi Keyboard, Midi Controller etc

Hologram Chroma Console + Great Conjunction generative synth - every effect isolated NO TALKING shhh

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Just giving some love to a brand new Hologram Chroma Console. My Great Conjunction prototype just came in today, and I decided to set up a simple, generative patch and play with each effect on the chroma console.

I didn’t get into too many of the shift menus. Just a brief exploration of what each effect does in the context of a pretty, basic synth sound.

This thing really shines when you start adding the effects together and get into some of the deeper features of motion capture.

I may even dust off the guitar and plug it in, who knows!

"This is a software synthesizer and MIDI player of mine playing the original th07_09.mid from Touhou 7.

I’m using FM synthesis to generate the waveforms in a way vaguely inspired by old FM sound chips. It doesn’t have that many unique instruments right now, most of them are used in this song. I would like to add LFOs, better envelopes and possibly some basic signal filters eventually.

I did not compose or arrange any of this, I just made the synthesizer.

Analogue Solutions Maximus Polysynth as an Analogue Workstation (In Realtime)

video upload by Analogue Solutions

"Although we label Maximus as a polysynth - it is so much more. And because of this, we can’t think of an appropriate label.

Here is a quick demo of Maximus functioning as an 8-voice analogue workstation (utilising 8 onboard sequencers), mixed by the onboard stereo mixer. You can effectively create entire bodies of music with Maximus should that be your goal.

Alternatively, you can create the biggest speaker-challenging unison sound imaginable -- or develop the phatest, most detuned pads.

When you think of a polysynth you think of flat synths with one set of controls that control all voices equally. By giving Maximus independent controls for every voice, you have more freedom to create unique styles of poly sounds impossible on traditional polysynths, whether they are hardware or software. You can dial up ‘traditional’ poly sounds (pads etc) or have something unimaginable different.

Standard poly pads will sound superbly vintage because you can never dial up each voice identically."

Moog Sound Studio Generative Patches: DFAM + Subharmonicon

video upload by Anton Anru

"Welcome to the soundset for the semi-modular system, Moog Sound Studio: DFAM + Subharmonicon. DS Generative is a collection of 25 patches. This genre of sound design is very popular inside modular culture, and Moog Sound Studio suggests a good set of features to enter this club.
The bank covers a wide range of tones: warm, deep, bright, metallic, soft, expressive, dreamy, dark, evolving, detuned, inharmonic, noisy, distorted and others.

🧊 Get the soundset:

Controlled chaos and randomness, probability, non-repetitiveness, tempo break, pattern uniqueness, short and long sounds alternation, unexpected changes, silence and density, harmonic and fx-like tones, freaky splashes during a sequence - all these things are included in the soundset.

Generative timbre may be a good addition to (or a lead part of) ambient or techno tracks, jams and performances. You may also record fragments into your DAW or sampler, slice it to one-shots or make loops - you’ll get a unique material for further processing.
The main point of the soundset is the high level of interconnection. In this patchbook, the timbres of the synths are soldered and can’t exist separately:
🔸 they modulate each other with Envelopes
🔸 a sequence from one synth may change parameters on the other one
🔸 triggers interaction, clock/rhythm, run/stop modulations break predictable patterns
🔸 audio signals from VCOs may be used as modulation sources to create harmonies/intervals or crazy experimental inharmonic tones.

The soundset is presented in PDF format. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn a lot about the synths and discover their true depth.

To recreate these patches, you need up to 13 patch cords.

There are audio examples of all patches inside the folder with the soundset. Audio examples for a patch are presented in three variants: DFAM only, Subharmonicon only, and both together.

Creative & Musical Uses of Precision Adders, Offset Voltages & Transposing // BEFACO VOLTIO

video upload by DivKid

"In this video we explore creative and musical uses of offset voltages and precision adders. Using the Befaco Voltio we explore creating chord intervals both statically and with offsetting musical sequences, we get creative with adding asymmetrical behaviours to waveshapers, we lock in FM ratios with analogue VCOs and plenty more.

The Befaco Voltio is a musical voltage source with 0-10V or -5/+5V octave offsets alongside semitone offsets, perfect for dealing in chord intervals. It features 2mm banana outputs that work with probes and it is a very accurate voltage that they designed for testing, building and calibrating modules. As well as generating voltages it's features a sum input, allowing this to work as a precision adder for adding or subtracting CV offset values from both sub audio CV signals and from audio sources."

Drone Music | Maths + Morphagene + DPO = Motor Synth

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I saw the Gamechanger Audio Motor Synth MK II on the Erica booth at Dutch Modular Fest and I was intrigued by the sound and the mechanics of eight precision drone engines. Unfortunately I can't justify a purchase due to price and my focus on Eurorack. But that sound... So I was inspired to try to make something similar with a clever envelope, a complex oscillator and a drone engine sample. I am using Maths, DPO and Morphagene, but any combo of an ADSR, growling VCO and sample player with pitch CV would work.

This video basically covers the fun of combining a VCO with a Sample and mult pitch to both of them. It will open up a weatlh of new sounds you've never heard before, but offer a new level of complexity and awe.

I guess you can see this as Shared System Tutorials episode 45 too. So the series goes on, but the thumbnails are no longer directly tied to the series."

Granular Guitar

video upload by Instruō

"làrachd is utilised as an input stage for the guitar.
The output from làrachd is patched to the Onset Input of arbhar.

When an onset signal is detected, arbhar begins recording the guitar. Once the buffer is full, we can use the Spray Knob and Scan Knob to explore which part of the recording we would like to hear.

The guitar signal normals to làrachd's envelope follower.

The Positive Envelope Output of the làrachd is used to modulate arbhars Intensity. As a result, when a loud input signal is present, fewer grains are triggered from the arbhars Continuous Granular Engine.

The Negative Envelope Output is offset using a vincâ and used to duck arbhar's internal reverb as well as adjust the Dry/Wet Mix when an input signal is present.

arbhar’s Pitch Deviation Knob is positioned fully clockwise meaning grains are transposed up and down octaves.

Finally, the left and right outputs of the arbhar are patched to the cuïr, which is used for gain staging and final signal output."

Expanding Your Eurorack Setup with the ES9 and VCV Rack Ft. Omri Cohen

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Bridging between the worlds of software and hardware instruments is a long-standing ideal among electronic musicians. It's easy to imagine why: the precision of control and extensibility of the computer coupled with the tactility of hardware instruments has the potential to open completely new musical dimensions.

Luckily, this type of setup is simpler now than it ever has been. In this video, our pal and hybrid setup aficionado Omri Cohen walks through some ideas for integrating a hardware Eurorack system with the virtual modular synthesizer VCV Rack…focusing on the Expert Sleepers ES-9 Eurorack audio interface as a bridge between the two worlds. In this video, Omri touches on a ton of great patching ideas: using the computer to clock your modular system; using the computer as a processor for hardware audio; and much more.

New Spectraphon Firmware! | Make Noise

video upload by MAKEN0ISE

Also see: SpectraNoise Coming to Make Noise Spectraphon

Press release follows:

Make Noise is proud to announce SpectraNoise, a new Spectraphon firmware coded by Tom Erbe of Soundhack!

This free firmware can be downloaded directly from our website.

SpectraNoise adds two new oscillator modes: Chaos and Noise.

As with the original Spectraphon firmware, each half of the module is able to run any of the four available modes (SAM, SAO, Chaos, Noise) independently, allowing for a wide range of experimental, harmonically rich timbres.

This new firmware also includes improved low frequency compensation for the Partials parameter in SAO mode.

A new low frequency mode can also be enabled, transforming the module into a chaotic modulation powerhouse!

Noise Mode:

In Noise mode, the Even and Odd outputs contain a pair of sine waves modulated by noise sidebands. The Slide and Focus controls set the frequencies of a low-pass and high-pass filter, respectively, for this modulating noise, further shaping the sidebands.

Chaos Mode:

In Chaos mode, two sine oscillators are each paired with a second sine whose harmonic ratio is set by the Focus control. Partials adds audio rate modulation of one sine by the other, and Slide adds multiple chaotic feedback paths to this modulation.

In both new modes the Sine and Sub/CV outputs, the Pitch Controls and the FM Bus, all work the same as in previously existing modes.

Please refer to the Spectraphon manual for more details!

Additional information:

The updated Spectraphon manual (which includes the SpectraNoise info) can be found here.

A cheat sheet for the various controls and functions of SpectraNoise can be found on our website.

Installing SpectraNoise provides access to sounds otherwise impossible to create with the original Spectraphon firmware. We cannot wait to hear what you create with it! Download today and happy patching!

Ohms Looper - OB-6 sequencer test

video upload by Franz Schimmel

"On patch slot 279 i stored a sequence made out of a random Arp.

Obie is set to monophonic, which means unison on the deck. Sequences running in unison can be transposed with one key pressed. You can use the aftertouch on the same keypress. In addition i use an expression pedal for filter cutoff, and a switchable sustain pedal for sustaining the sequence, thus it will be turned into sustained chords playing.

Model:Samples gets the clock from Obie. With the 'fill' option i switch it to a basic pattern without Hihats and snares etc.

Yamaha reface CP serves as a Piano overdub on top of it all...

The whole session consits of two recordings, first the sequence with additional drums from M:S, second is the piano part only. Video overlaying with the Meltytech freeware, 'Shotcut' video editor."
