I think these mid-70s filters are beautiful beyond belief

What do you think? Are there any modern ones that sound like this?

Endorphines Shuttle System &Why you need a modular desktop synthesizer

video upload by Synthesizer New Zealand

"Welcome to Shuttle System, a unique performance instrument containing 5 @Endorphines #Eurorack modules under single 84hp faceplate.

This video consist of an intro, explanation about the #synthesizer modules within Shuttle system and some performances on the system. To help you navigate through the madness here are some timestamps:

00:00 Introduction
00:48 Shuttle System explained
01:31 Shuttle Control
02:27 Furthrrrr Generator
03:13 Gateway XP
03:42 Grand Terminal
05:14 Cockpit 2
06:04 Connections & controls
07:02 Performance 1
09:28 Performance 2
14:28 Performance 3: Vƍlc - The Matrix

The composition used in the last song is part of Vƍlc's (@volc5406) song the matrix which was performed and debuted on Saturday the 29th of October 2022 during Modfest 2 (Modular Festival Auckland) in Red Bar, #Auckland

The performance modular synthesizer is the result of 5 years of intense development — module after module was put together neatly by the team at Endorphines to finally create an instrument in a class of it’s own—a set of well selected devices for musicians to imagine music and bring it to life in the most pleasant way.

With the Shuttle System you obtain 5 modules in a 84hp @FrapTools PLUS case with handmade signature silkscreen printing, a PSU, a set of cables and a carrying bag. The whole Shuttle System is around 43-44 cm long which is the approximate size allowed in almost every airliner to ensure safe traveling with your instrument.

The portable power adapters ensure the use of instrument in any part of the world — no matter what the voltages is coming from the power receptacle.

The Shuttle's front panel is secured in the case with @Befacosynth Knurlies for ultra-fast access to the backside of the modules for trimming their parameters, setting jumpers (stereo/mono channels) on Cockpit 2 or installing the rich-in-timbres Strong-Zero VCO core onto Furthrrrr Generator.

The following modules are included in Shuttle System:

Shuttle Control - 16 channel USB to MIDI to CV interface with almost infinite possibilities interpreting MIDI events into analogue control voltages—including CV/Gate, random or noise generators, MIDI or tap-clocks, utility LFOs and envelopes. (Find out more here:

Furthrrrrr Generator - dual triangle-core VCO with a waveshaper (Find out more here:

Grand Terminal - dual voltage controlled gate with 8 resonant filter modes (ladder, diode, lpg, state variable, comb), dual envelope generators (voltage controlled) with looping/AD/ASR with arbitrary voltage to control slope shapes: from EXP to LIN to LOG without stretching the length of a certain slope, Cabin Pressure audio FX processor with 8 selected effects
(Find out more here:

Cockpit 2 - 4 stereo channel mixer with sidechain ducking (Find out more here:

Gateway - dual 1+1 utility mixer and auto-tuners to scale, offset and invert voltages"

Synthesizer - Plant Wave

video upload by Rubén Martín Villa

"There is no better way to start the year than playing with our passion. There so much kind of syntetizers, that’s why I love it, it’s pretty similar than a game but with sounds. In this case I have a plant wave to take the variations of the sound of a bonsai and put it in the synthe to modify it. To create textures to accompany the timbre of the sound. This was a 3-hour session condensed into 3 minutes. #Intellijel #mutableinstrument #makenoise #sounddesign"

"Big shoutout to @KorgOfficial for keeping the Microkorg around. It's an affordable synth. But it is actually a very flexible, great sounding synth, once you get your head around the synth engine. All these sounds are from my 128-microkorg-presets sound pack.

80's Rhythm | #Jamuary2023 | Day 04

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Day 04 and counting. So far it's giving me lots of fun and energy and between you and me, day 05 and 06 are already finished since I have a gig on day 08. In this episode I want to talk about rhythms from the 80's and 90's, where musicians had to use the 808 or 909 and were more or less restricted to 16 steps in a bar. But that still adds up to 65536 possible patterns - per voice - not counting a 'final step' feature to create polyrhythms. Also, I'd like to show you how cool it is to decouple your melodic track from its own gates and use a separate gate track. I hope you'll enjoy!"

JAMUARY 2023 / 4 / Joranalogue Audio Design feedback jam

video upload by BRiES

"I watched a few videos about the R*S Serge system (I shouldn't have) and got inspired to play around with feedback in my Joranalogue system. I'm always pleasantly surprised how not using a sequencer can yield such emotive soundscapes."

#Jamuary 02 - Ambient Techno improvisation: Monome Norns, Grid + Ableton midi controller by Midique

video upload by Thoow

"My second contribution to this years #Jamuary. This time I based my piece around notes generated by the Fall script on Monomer Norns+Grid. I added a simple baseline in Ableton, recorded some of the incoming Midi notes, reduced tempo and created some Pads with these. The drum section is heavily modulated by LFOs with the Slink Max for Live device. Apart from the filters, effects and start end points of the samples (mostly taken from the TanzbÀr), it even modulates the steps and events within the Euclidian sequencer. Have fun. Use headphones, if you can :-)"
