Generative M8 with Milkdrop and Raindrops

video upload by Avrilcadabra

"Generative music from the Dirtywave M8 with winamp visualizer

Hi everyone, if you caught my last stream I had this track running, but here is a proper video of it. I try to find a balance between random and musical.

#dirtywave #milkdrop

So random pitches are locked to scaled and lots of use of the SNG command to jump between islands of chains on the song screen. USB from the m8 is driving old school winamps milkydrop 2 visualizer.

I had the M8 audio going through raindrops bypassed, but turned it on and it sounded nice, so theres some sweetening from raindrops, was just set to 50ms delay so very short.

Here is an affiliate link to perfect circuit for the raindrops Dreadbox Raindrops -
I have recently done a full review of demo of you should watch first if you are interested.

I have not put this generative track (I dont even have a name for it) on bandcamp, but if someone wants me to just drop a comment and I'll get onto it.

I am also on"

1973 Moog Music Inc. Minimoog -Future Proofed-

via this auction

From The Black Lodge, North Bend, WA, the home of Twin Peaks. Check out the seller's profile pictures. :)

"Up for grabs is a gorgeous 1973 Minimoog. After acquiring an original R.A. Minimoog last year, we decided to have this Model D future proofed in preparation for sale back in October 2022 with no expenses spared. Prior to our ownership it was routinely serviced by the original owner, who was a session musician for studios such as United Western / Ocean Way, A&M, etc. The original blue anvil ATA flight case it was primarily stored in for the majority of it’s 50 years is available upon request from the buyer. ATA case is in excellent condition.

The power supply is completely rebuilt and a 3 prong US cable was installed. Rock solid with zero drift. The calibration is perfect. All of the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced throughout the synth. Every mechanical and moving part has been thoroughly cleaned. The keybed has been meticulously refurbished- all key contacts straightened and cleaned, bus bar cleaned, key frame straightened, and new bushings installed. Plays like a dream. Every dial is smooth and precise. The cabinet is all original wood and has been well maintained with only a few very minor imperfections. Overall this is a near mint unit listed with a modest excellent condition rating according to Reverb grading."

ALLINAIRE Serge Live - Wilson Analog Delay (WAD)

video upload by Allinaire

"Live Serge Modular performance (in 3 takes) featuring the amazing Wilson Analog Delay (WAD) and Touch Activated Keyboard Sequencer (TKB).
The WAD uses the legendary 'vintage' SAD1024 bucket brigade chips and creates beautiful filtered delay's, flanging and karpus strong type effects.
The TKB is a powerful control voltage keyboard and sequencer. Very playable and flexible offering multiple cv and gate outputs to control any part of the Serge system.
Function generators are used for clocks, lfos, envelopes and oscillators in this patch which also features the Frequency Shifter, Dual Phaser and filters.

Recorded in January 2023 in Wollongong NSW (Thanks to Jondent for the use of his WAD Panel and dining table!)"

video upload by Alex Ball

"A look at the Mutronics Mutator released in 1996.

As discussed in the video, this unit was used by many famous artists, producers and engineers in the late 90s and early 00s across a broad range of styles.

The Mutator is a stereo pair of analogue, resonant low pass filters (SSM 2045s) and voltage controlled amplifiers that are contoured by envelope followers and/or LFOs. In a nutshell, that allows for all sorts of stereo filtering, sweeping and tremolo FX on an open-ended number of audio sources. There is further functionality such as additional attack and release times, external inputs for creating alternate envelopes, external CV ins, LFO linking/inverting, MIDI control and MIDI LFO reset etc. Most (but not all) of this was used at some point in the video.

Oora | Every Story Begins | The Mavis EP

video upload by Moog Music Inc

"Composer and synth enthusiast Federico Chiesa (Oora) reminds us there is beauty in simplicity with his new ambient release: 'The Mavis EP.'

The album features Mavis as the foundational sound of all seven modular compositions.

As Oora, the artist embraces a minimalistic approach to creating lush soundscapes with a defined set of tools. Inviting spontaneity into his music by way of fully improvised live performances and single-take recordings for albums like 'The Mavis EP,' Oora consistently finds inspiration in exploring new instruments and effects.

Sound & Vision (Walker & Tony)

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I revisited the conversation between Walker and Tony from MakeNoise and really enjoyed Walker trying to recreate one of the album patches for their 'Tales of two Systems' endeavour [posted here and here]. Whatever they do, it never sounds the same to me. His patch involved two alternating sequences, but the Shared System doesn't have a sequential switch and a basic Rene sequence can have 16 notes. His vision has 2x16 x2 playing after each other. So he had to use clock divisions from Tempi, sequence Rene state changes and clock automated Morphagene dubbing. It's a super interesting concept, but Walker clearly showed it's not an easy patch to direct/orchestrate/arrange. I tried this concept on the Westlicht Performer with Noise Engineering VCO's and the Morphagene. And I had a great time with it."

MARBLE Colortracking (Musikraken & FRMS Granular Syntesizer)

video upload by Perplex On

"#jamuary2023 day 24: Another take on colortracking using #musikraken app. Here the position of the marble is converted into midi cc values which control sample offset and grain density parameter in #FRMS app. So basically x position scrubs through the waveform from left to right while y position determines the amount of grains from high (top) to low (bottom). You can see what the tracking is doing in the screenrecording of FRMS @ImaginandoPt . Having the unpredictability where the marble would stop and the uneven carvings of the underground makes this really surprising and playful. Definitely have to try it with more sonic material."

Gliss Dev Diaries: Physical Models

video upload by Bela Platform

Gliss Dev Diaries

"In this dev diary we look at Gliss controlling Rings by Mutable Instruments. This is not the original Rings but rather a Pure Data implementation running on our Pepper module. We love Mutable Instruments and take great inspiration from their open source ethos, design philosophy and incredible synthesiser modules. We will miss them!

Gliss is the perfect counterpart for complex synthesis models as you have two dimensions of highly sensitive and high resolution control literally under your fingertips, position and touch size. In the video above we are using touch size to control the Damping and Brightness parameters of the voltage-controlled resonator. The touch position on the other hand is used to control the speed at which the excitation signal is repeated. You'll hear more about Mutable Instruments and Pepper in coming weeks but for now here's a snippet for you to enjoy.

Help bring Gliss into the world and be one of the first to get this module by backing us on Crowd Supply:"

Neutral Labs: Pip clocked cv generator

video upload by John Schussler

"Along with Nijel (see previous vid), Martin at Neutral Labs sent along a kit for Pip, his new clocked CV generator. Its main selling point is the synchronization between the two channels: channel A can run at a multiple or fraction of channel B, and both are clocked so they'll stay in sync with the beat.

You can get some interesting rhythmic sounds out of your modules that have two cv inputs by using contrasting waves and different ratios (there are 16 'pages' of waves, each with two waves that can be morphed to make new waves).

The most interesting part, however, is when you self-modulate it. You get the benefit of the synchronized channels, clocked, plus interesting little additions that bring the whole thing to life (Spoiler alert! Skip to 23m22s for my favorite bit).
