Critter & Guitari - Laura Derwn for Organelle

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Download this patch:
Laura Derwn takes any sound, and makes it go 'Derwn.' Whether you want to sound like a turntable stopping, or a whammy bar at full wham, Laura Derwn is your jam. Make huge drops and sweeps, or keep it simple for a quick bend. Manually drop with the keys, use a tempo-based pattern, or use MIDI notes to trigger Derwns. Fire up Laura Derwn on your Organelle and your sound will not not be rich!"

Playing a Modular Synth at a Wedding

video upload by Lightbath

A little bit of synth history? Curious if this is the first modular perfomed at a wedding.

"I'm so grateful to Shelby (Frogi) and David (VAAAL) for having me improvise with cellist, Chris Votek at their wedding in Ojai, CA back in 2021. This video is a brief edit of the music Chris and I played that day. Despite having played for hours, only some of it was recorded. A longer edit of this performance is available on Patreon, complete with bloopers, in what I like to call a 'comedy cut'.

[patch] Deeper and Deeper (Blofeld)

video upload by Synthesizer Video Service

"'Deeper and Deeper' is a fantastic piece of music by 'The Fixx' that they composed for the movie 'Streets of Fire'. It wonderfully shows the use of the PPG Wave (just like many other pieces by this band). Since the Waldorf Blofeld is also a bit of a great-grandson of the PPG, let's find out today if we can recreate the distinctive sound at the beginning of the piece.

Weston Precision Audio - AD110 Analog Drum Synthesizer

video upload by SchneidersLaden

"Here is a quick look at the Weston Precision Audio AD110 - a six-voice analog drum module inspired by the famous Boss DR-110. It features single outputs for each drum voice and an additional mix output that reacts to the accent input. This is a simple to use module with a great sound and feel. You'll notice that it is possible to create "ghost notes" with combing long decay sounds with accents - very nice!"

"Weston Precision AD110 is a six-voice analog drum machine inspired by the famous Boss DR-110.

The Boss DR-110 is a sought-after vintage drum machine that resembles its more "famous" sister, the Roland TR-606, in many ways sonically, featuring an additional clap besides a different look/operation. Weston Audio have beefed up the DR-110, which is also often found modified, and expanded the functionality of the rather static original. Thus, the individual sounds can all be accessed separately and sonically modified. The clap was even given a reverb, while an accent input can be found at the mix-out.


Faithful recreation of all six DR-110 voices, output in Eurorack signal format.
Additional sound setting options that go far beyond those of the original: Kick: Pitch/Resonance, Snare: Pitch/Decay, Cymbal: Decay and Clap: Spread/Reverb.
Single outs + mix out with accent input"

The Dust Collector + Omnichord 84

video upload by Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"Filmed on my iPhone, just a little bit of playful fun in the studio using the Omnichord 84 through The Dust Collector, which offers a gritty analogue edge to the already low fidelity music, by way of LFOs, tape saturation, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. Nothing spectacular, just a moment in the studio, nothing more, nothing less.

Apologies for the camera re-focusing but this isn't for broadcast, just documentation of a moment in time."

Polyend Play + Eurorack jamming (IDM or something)

video upload by sucik

"Polyend Play is playing drums and sequencing all eurorack stuff via Polyend Poly 1:). Drums samples were also preprepared by me (sampled from Elektron A4)
Eurorack is responsible for all the melodies.
Play shines when it comes to sequencing. The fact that it's very simple and straghtforward + nice visual feedback (you can see all 8 tracks at once) boosts creativity."

ALESIS ANDROMEDA A6 - Ambient Chillout Jam (Step Sequencer)

video upload by synth4ever

"Alesis Andromeda A6 synth demo featuring an ambient chillout jam using the on-board step sequencer. The Alesis Andromeda is a very powerful analog synthesizer and the 16-step sequencer allows for intricate pattern building and layering, as it can be triggered per key to create different timings and offsets.

In this ambient chillout music piece I showcase the Alesis Andromeda A6's step sequencer and some interesting timbres via the dual filter setup, LFOs and delay effects. The music uses a repeating motif to showcase these aspects. Hope you enjoy the demo and jam."

"3 Voices 3 Rows" on Cwejman S1 / GRP R24

video upload by kapillarkraft

"Since I don't appreciate big setups so much, I tried to accomplish a Berlin School - style piece on an analogue monophonic synthesiser with external sequencing. Now that the Cwejman S1 is not your regular mono synth, I got 3 independent voices out of it all by itself.

Have fun watching."
