A Conversation with Herbie Hancock

video upload by

"On October 18th of 2022, Herbie Hancock sat down with d'ARP (Dina Pearlman-Ifil, daughter of Alan R Pearlman, the creator of ARP Synthesizers) and gracefully shared his time with her to discuss a myriad of subjects: from his early years of Crossings (Mwandishi Sextet) to the Head Hunters album, to sound tracks; from Civil Rights to Covid, to the state of the planet and the future generations of music. A wonderful glimpse of a creative giant who got his start in electronic music using ARP Synthesizers.

Sony RX100 VII Creative Zoom Examples

video upload by Mamotreco

"Trippy creative zoom articulations with the Sony RX100 VII. Combining a versatile zoom lens with SteadyShot stabilisation gets you some striking movement, closing in and peeling off your subject.
#sonyrx100vii #prophet12 #zoomtest
The music was done on a Prophet 12 synthesizer which sounds rather unique due to its combination of digital oscillators and analog filters.

Two DB-01s visit the fairy grotto

video upload by Richard DeHove

"How "sweet" can the DB-01 sound? Can they gently float through the fairy grotto sprinkling magic pixie dust? Well it's certain they didn't want to, and they fought against the visit the whole time, and wouldn't play with the fairies at all unless they had help from some heavy effects. In the end they were probably rightly regarded as a couple of intruding goblins, but they behaved themselves and might yet get another invitation.
Here we have three short little sketches. Each DB-01 gets the effect next to to it: The Strymon Timeline on the left and either the Strymon El Capistan V2 or the DBA Rooms reverb on the right. Absolutely no other effects or processing are used. The Keystep-37 is central to the setup and you'll notice the different key modes on the DB-01 in each piece, either "key" which means the Keystep is playing the unit directly, or "arp" which means the Keystep is triggering the DB-01's own arpegiator. This gets most interesting where the Keystep is in strum mode and each strum note is in turn activating a restart on the arpegiator. The MIDI chain is simply out of the keystep into the left DB-01 then MIDI Through to the right DB-01. All three units (and the Timeline) are receiving their own feed of an external MIDI clock (the ERM MIDI Clock).

Vortex | A Complex Oscillator by Cosmotronic

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"In this video I'll dive a bit deeper into the Vortex. At first glance it's just another '259 inspired' machine, but I feel it goes way beyond the standard features of a complex VCO. You really need to read the manual to get the most from it - which is a lot.

This is a spin-off episode for the '259' series, so it will be in the same playlist. The series doesn't go deep into individual modules but is more about design concepts in general. I'll start with Episode 03 next week and I am planning spin-off's for the Cs-L and the DPO."

various & unique sounds of the Korg Modwave / Native

video upload by Jexus (

"Patches / presets compatible with VST / Native plugin. Vid 3 with softer, slower sounds (& more pads): [2nd video here] | My thoughts & how to buy this soundset / soundpack:

No talking demo of Korg Modwave. I did not use any external FX in the demo; all the delays, reverbs, noises and other effects are part of the Modwave engine & mod matrix. I recorded my demo straight through an audio card. Also, you don’t need any custom wavetables or add-ons for my patches to work – just a standard Modwave / Native unit."

Yamaha Synth Space History | CS40M | Dom Sigalas

video upload by Yamaha Synths Official

"In this episode Dom Sigalas takes a look at the CS40M, a duophonic analogue synthesizer designed as a smaller sibling of the CS80. Sound-wise this instrument is more related to the monophonic CS20M, but also shares some of the technology found in the CS80. It was used by bands such as Ultravox, Duran Duran & Front 242."
