Alexander Rubenstein: How the most basic patch ever saved my recording session
"Welcome to the captivating world of synthesizer compositions!

Today, we're thrilled to present an inspiring entry in the composition contest, featuring the incredible talents of Alexander Rubenstein. Dive into his stunning creation, aptly titled "Why 5U?" and get ready to be transported into a realm of sonic magic and unique melodies.

Alexander's brilliant performance showcases the use of three Q106 Oscillators expertly played by hand, navigating through filters and VCAs to create a rich, mesmerizing soundscape. As the symphony unfolds, you'll also notice the inclusion of two more oscillators, cleverly routed into a DIY lowpass gate to offer a tantalizing percussive structure that breathes life and rhythm into the piece.

Alexander stays true to his personal preference by working with a carefully curated selection of simpler modules from In this enticing performance, he includes the Q106, Q107, Q108, Q110, and Q157 modules, each bringing a unique layer of depth to the mix. The creative arrangement and impeccable execution of this electro-sonic ensemble are sure to leave you awestruck!"

"Today, we're excited to share Alexander Rubenstein's inspiring creation titled "How the most basic patch ever saved my recording session." Alexander's innovative and alluring performance began with a modest patch that had the power to spark a symphony of synth sounds.

At its core, Alexander's composition started with a single oscillator patch, a testament to the concept that sometimes, simple is better. As if by serendipity, this 1-osc patch in the background of the studio one night unlocked a world of creativity, paving the way for arpeggios, a thunderous 3-oscillator bass, solo, and lead sounds that transformed into an astonishing and immense song. 🎶"
