Ultratroninator 3000 Zoxnoxious Analog Synthesizer

video upload by Ultratroninator 3000

"Demo of the 'beyond obnoxious' Zoxnoxious analog synthesizer with 6 voice cards installed. The installed cards:
* Dual VCO synth voice
* VCO x4
* Analog signal processor (VCF/VCA)

After some software updates I'm able to install up to 6 voice cards. Taking advantage of it here. This is more a proof of concept demo than anything else: certainly someone with some musical talent could do something much better than this.

Video shows each card being added to the Audio Out backplane, system turning on (look! LEDs!), then a close-up of each module in VCV Rack.

In development / coming soon:
* Z5524 dual VCO synth voice (SSI2130 VCO + AS3394 synth-on-a-chip) demo
* CPU auto-tune functionality"

Demo: AS3394 Waveselect Modulation

"AS3394: synth-on-a-chip. This is Alfa Rpar's clone of the CEM3394, the same chip used in the Sequential Six Trak and other 80s synths. What's new here? The '3394 has a input pin to select the VCO waveform. How about modulating that input at audio rate? Switch between tri, saw, tri+saw? Here is a demo of audio rate modulation.

Video shows some ways that could be used for modulation. Either by varying the modulation amount (LFO, envelope), or by varying the modulator (sync, pitch) a variety of effects are possible.

The completed board will use an SSI2130 as a second VCO as a modulator. This demo is bit of a hack in using an external VCO for the same purpose.

Interesting effect? Usable? Noise? Drop a comment on your thoughts!"

AS3394 - Audio Rate Waveselect Modulation

"Demo of the working part of this synth voice card: the AS3394 synth-on-a-chip. Beginning of the video I jumper a '3340 VCO to where the eventual SSI2130 will be on the board. This VCO is used for modulation of the AS3394, in this demo the waveselect modulation.

The "Half-Working" is a bit of a self-jab. The card is missing an SSI2130 which needs to be soldered on. The card as used is functional, less a second on-board VCO."

Custom Original 3 Voice Oberheim SEM System

via this auction

"Custom original 3 voice sem. Rare occasion to get your Oberheim Modular. If 4 voice is too much and 2 voice is too little this is the one for you. The 2 voice Oberheim doesn’t have a global filter control Like the 4 voice. You can do it with this one simply play the 2 sem and send the signal into audio in of the third sem and voila.

The sequencer is a copy of the original with extras ( noise generator + plus mute triggers)

Was placed in a cabinet with a chipped corner, I was suppose to put it in a real wood cabinet but I didn’t have time to make one. Can be a great project. The three sem work perfectly And sound amazingly good. Great modulation just check the patch possibilities on the picture.

"Extremely rare vintage ARP MSL Model 1509 VCA parts.

For a description of the ARP Modular Synthesizer Lab (aka MSL), see 'The MSL was designed for classroom instructional use, a cheap alternative to the 2600, this system consists of individual battery-powered modules similar to those found in the second generation of ARP Odysseys. The basic setup included the keyboard and the VCO (modules 1504), VCF (module 1506), envelope (module 1506) and a battery operated amplifier/speaker modules. Also available were modules for LFO, VCA (module 1509 in this listing), noise(module 1503), sample-and-hold (module 1507), ring modulator, multiple (module 1510), and mixer/atenuator. The modules are connected by mini cables (grey, yellow, or red), and were designed to be used with or without a keyboard. ARP sold each module for between $40 (for the multiple module 1510) to around $70. The keyboard sold for around $175. They drafted workbooks, one for each module, with a comprehensive teacher's manual.'

Altar 2 by Ritual Electronics - Demo and Overview

video upload by Stazma

"Today I'll be showing you the Altar 2, a very good sounding and looking analog 18dB/octave state variable discrete filter, made by Ritual Electronics in Marseille, France.

Because of it's look and the fact there's no filter in the Buchla & Tiptop Audio line Ive decided to use it in my 'Buchla Suitcase' for a recent two weeks modular class and everyone liked it there.

Have fun!

The Ritual Electronics Altar is a 3-pole 18db/oct state-variable filter with the ability to smoothly crossfade between filter types. The module's resonance has an attenuverter in it's CV input which allows for quick bumps in the resonance that can act as "accents" to liven up your patterns. Additionally the module's input gain can drive the filter core into distortion, and the ability to run two inputs into the filter allows you to push it even harder. This combined with the module's crossfading filter design give Altar multiple options for ever changing, yet still very rich timbres.

Studio Electronics SE-1 | Borrowing a friend's SE-1 while I contemplate getting a Model D

video upload by MIDERA

"I probably was wrong thinking the SE-1 was anything like a Minimoog (Model D). Come to think of it, I haven't really figured out why it's called the Minimoog and Model D. Or maybe it's Minimoog Model D? Well. I don't know why I want one in the first place. I guess it just looks cool. I've been wondering why I want it, given that I already have the Matriarch and have enjoyed how it sounds. Anyway, after talking with a friend, they offered to let me test out their SE-1. The first thing that stuck out to me is how wildly steppy the cutoff knob is. In some ways, it can actually be interesting what sounds you get out of it, but it's pretty prominent. Another thing that baffles me is that there doesn't appear to be a true 'menu'. You seem to access menu items by pressing a button or twisting a knob. I end up lost at times thinking "There should just be a simple global button to access all the parameters" but there isn't.

Beyond that - it does sound quite lovely. I can tell it's very punchy and 'thick'. It's interesting in that you can activate saw, triangle, and square waves at the same time. Something I don't think the Minimoog can do. It sounds like the pulse width can affect even saw waves, which was surprising. Maybe I was just hearing things, but it sounds like it does. It has something of a mod matrix, but kind of not really how I'd describe it, just that you can take LFOs and ENVs and assign them to various things. The filter itself does sound great - and you're able to use a 24db LP filter or a 12db LP or BP filter. I found myself enjoying the 24db filter more.

After I finished this demo, I sat down with my Matriarch and thought "Wow, this is such a great synth." I'm not sure I'd feel the same way about the Minimoog, as it lacks a lot of things I like including an arpeggiator/sequencer (which the Matriarch has). I found both the SE-1 and Matriarch kind of have similar flavors apart from their obvious differences.

The Minimoog would probably get me 1-5% more 'minimoog' sound that would without a doubt get lost in all the FX I have. But still, it's hard not to want one. I bet it will end the same way the Prophet 10 ended - I was deeply unsatisfied with it for years, and then started to really open it up for some interesting sounds. The Minimoog seems a bit more... simple.

The plan has been to sell a bunch of stuff towards a Minimoog though:
System 8
Chroma Polaris
Something else I don't quite have on the chopping block yet.

That's the plan. Not sure how it will end.

On that note - here's me playing the SE1 using the DSI Prophet 08 as a controller. It went into the Strymon Volante to my mixer, with Eventide Blackhole VST for reverb. Not my best work, but it was fun to noodle on it.

Dianzi Qin (电子琴) Chinese synth from 1978

video upload by Robotussin Vintage Synths

"Look at these strange synths produced by Cold War-era China. This is a Dianzi Qin (电子琴).

The synth came about following a cultural exchange in the early 1970s when composer Bernie Krause visited China to demonstrate a Moog modular system. It was part of Richard Nixon’s attempt to build up relations with China to counterbalance Soviet influence in the region – a program known as “Ping-pong diplomacy”.

Krause demo’ed his Moog to Communist officials who were apparently very impressed, after which the Party declared that electronic music 'had no cultural bias', meaning it was not intrinsically Western and decadent, and so there was no problem for Chinese people to explore it and incorporate it into their compositions.

This led inventor Tian Jin Qin to develop this instrument, as a modern, electronic synthesizer with Chinese characteristics – it’s loosely based on traditional Chinese string instruments such as the Erhu.

The Dian Zi Qin is controlled with four ribbons, which power an additive synth engine. There seem to have been two versions, one that looks like an upright stringed instrument, the other that looks more like a desktop synth but with a vertical neck sticking out of it with the ribbon controls to finger. The second type has additional touch controls on the main unit that have some ability to bend and accent the note.

I’ve read that very few were made and it didn’t get out of the prototype stage, but in this video I see at least three playing in concert, as well as what looks like a more conventional organs. I’ve uploaded the full film to my YouTube channel as it was not available anywhere on the Western internet."

Pilot 🧭 (TR-6S with new "808 Chromatic Bass", sequencing MAM ADX1 + Timeline // Sequential Take 5)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"In this jam, I'm exploring the Roland TR-6S' capability to sequence external instruments, in this case the MAM (Music And More) ADX-1, 5-voice analog drum module 🥁!

I used 4 tracks (white illuminated faders, labeled LT, HC, CH and OH) of the TR-6S to sequence 4 parts of the ADX-1 (named Synth, Snare, Hihat and Metal). I even used the "alternate instrument" sequencing feature of the TR-6S to sequence for example the closed/opened Hihat of the ADX-1 (i.e. sending 2 different notes to only one part of the ADX-1) 😃

At first I only wanted to use the TR-6S as a sequencer (not its internal sounds), however I ended up using on Track 1 its "CR-78" kick, on Track 2 its new "808 Chromatic Bass", and also layering the parts played by the ADX-1 with sounds from the TR-6S (4 last tracks). Fun fact: I didn't use any samples here 😉 All the sounds coming from the TR-6S are from the modeling ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) engine!

To be able to change the bass pitches coming from the TR-6S, I used different "variations" of the pattern, with different tunings of the "808 Chromatic Bass".

It was not very easy to jam with the Sequential Take 5 synth and change the pattern's variations at the same time, but nonetheless still fun and challenging 😅

"A basic overview of BOUCAN
BOUCAN is an odd analog noise generator with special features like the possibility to behave as a tonal equalizer, a waveshaper, a distortion and even as a filter just to name a few of its secret functions.
BOUCAN is Equipped with 2 channels with their own controls and outputs, with the addition of 3 types of fixed noise outputs, the classics WHITE, PINK and a homemade special one: FIRE !
The COLORED NOISE channel is a mix of different classic colored noise with some nuance while the ROCKET ENGINE and HURRICANE cover the heavy and unusual territory.
Both channels have independent control over its output level and its morphing capability represented by the top 'MULTI FUNCTION KNOBS' that can be voltage controlled.
The amplitude of both channels can be changed at the same time using the “NOISE LEVEL” knob which represents the amount of noise you are injecting in the whole circuit. Furthermore, you can plug any kind of external sources to the direct central INPUT and blend it with the internal noise circuit, or simply switch off all the noise and use BOUCAN as an effect unit with pleasing and different results at every output !
Now it’s time to…MAKE SOME NOISE ! with some BBBRRRZZZ on top !

How to do eurorack filters different – Eowave Tempête Magnetique

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"The Eowave Tempête Magnetique is a quad multimode filter with a lot of tricks up its sleeve. It can function as four independent filters, two creative filter pairs, or a single complex filter. Beside that it holds a build in cross-modulation section, an envelope follower, and a ping input. All that makes it a very versatile and interesting filter playground for sound design and exploration."

[ELZ_1 play] SAND FLUTE - Experiments in creating a sound that is not flute-like

video upload by SONICWARE

Today I experimented with SAND FLUTE, SONICWARE's proprietary sound engine that extracts pitch components from noise to generate sound.
If ELZ_1 just extracted the pitch components normally, it would sound tasteless, like a measuring instrument, but we have devised an algorithm to create a musically pleasing sound.
I named it SAND FLUTE because it produces a flute-like sound in its normal state, but in this video I tried to create a sound that is not flute-like by adjusting various parameters.

Sandy Freckle

video upload by cirtcele

"Sandy Freckle was a wonderful villain played by actor Rock Hampton in the Kath & Kim series. He was sleazy and annoying but irresistible and funny at the same time, much like this module."

via nonlinear circuits

"In Australia, there is an entrepreneur called Dick Smith who ran a chain of electronic hobby stores in the 70s and 80s (now he makes breakfast cereal). He used to publish circuit books every year (and sell kits for them), I no longer have the issue but remember the finer points of a circuit for a burp/fart generator.

It was simply 3 transistor based multivibrators running at different frequencies. The trick was that they were loosely connected by low valued resistors causing them to influence each other. This would result in unpredictable sounds that rarely repeated. Don’t expect it to actually sound like gas escaping from an orifice, think of it is a random pulse/burst generator

This version has pots to adjust the frequencies of each section and an input for turning the sound on and off rather than a switch. It can be fed gates or envelopes, which give a more gradual onset and tail as the sound starts and drops off.

Feel free to build it with whatever capacitor values you like. The ones suggested on the PCB (and heard in the demo vid) get into audible frequencies, but in some ways it is more interesting to use larger valued capacitors to get just pulses that will then ping filters and phase-shifters.

It is also interesting to feed it audio rate signals and it becomes a waveshaper/distortion module.

Sandy Freckle was a wonderful villain played by actor Rock Hampton in the Kath & Kim series. He was sleazy and annoying but irresistible and funny at the same time, much like this module."

K-DEVICES Releases Secta, a New VST3/AU Audio Plugin

video upload by kdevices

"Secta is an audio effect that dynamically splits incoming audio in two sections and processes each with an exclusive kit of effects, sculpting silence, shaping accents and amplifying hidden details, guiding each layer into a parallel sonic dimension."

Secta / 10 minutes tape loop disintegration

Press release follows:

K-Devices releases Secta as VST3 and AU
parallel (sound) worlds

Arvieux, France - September 28 2023. K-Devices, developer of creative music tools, has released Secta, a new audio effect, as VST3 and Audio Unit plugin for MacOS and Windows.

Building on the concept of a multidimensional gate, Secta processes the audio in a unique way, adding an ephemeral and dramatic touch to acoustic instruments, warmly disintegrating loops, injecting abrupt drops and retexturizing your lines, or throwing down any beat into a dark path of fragmentation.

At first, Secta splits the incoming signal acting as a gate effect: the user sets an amplitude threshold using the Verge and Boost parameters. The signal’s amplitude portion greater than the threshold value generates an envelope which controls the Above and Below sections. The envelope itself controls the frequency of a lowpass filter in the Above section (resulting similar to a lowpass gate), while its inverse value controls the amplitude of the Below section. Such envelope can be shaped using several global parameters: Smooth, Retain, and Sidechain.
Above and Below sections process sounds using a different set of effects each: the more rumbling Above, the more textural and looney Below.
Using one section at a time holds interesting sculpting results, while combining and balancing them is great for creating richer textures.

Hard-to-describe with classic effect categories, Secta processes both sides of a gated source independently, acting as a counterpoint amplitude sculptor. Secta cuts to (re)generate. Secta is a colorizer, no mix parameters are available: just load Secta onto your track and let it inspire you with its timbrical shades. A gate, a dynamic multi-distortion, a double heads tectonic monster, a trembling detuned textures generator, and more... so many uses of Secta have yet to be discovered!

== Totem/ Series ==
Secta is part of the totem/ series by K-Devices: unconventional audio effects coming in a compact format, easy to use, at a lower, convenient price.
== Requirements ==
Available as VST3 and Audio Unit plugin
any 64bits compatible DAW
