Arduino 8x8 Gate Sequencer Rhythm Pattern Generator with Two Rotary Encoders and OLED Display

video upload by Unrelated Activities

"An 8x8 sequencer, very basic in its features. The interface is composed of two rotary encoders with switch, and a 128x64 I2C OLED display. The display presents an eight rows x eight columns grid, rows are steps, columns are tracks. Encoders are used to navigate through the grid coordinates.
The X encoder switch selects Cursor or Write mode, in Cursor mode an 'x' is shown on the grid and a 0 is written in the selected slot in a bi-dimensional array, in Write mode a filled square is drawn on the grid and a 1 is written in the selected slot in the array.
The encoder Y switch has three modes: Edit, Tempo, and Play. In Edit mode the sequencer pattern can be created, in Tempo mode the Y encoder sets the sequencer BPM (Beats Per Minute), in Play it plays the pattern.
The right side of the display shows the BPM and the current mode, the left side shows a rectangle indicating which step is being played.
Each track fires a gate using eight Arduino pins (0 - 4.7V) and also sends MIDI notes through TX pin (channel 10, GM drum notes 35, 38, 42, 46, 45, 50, 64, 76). It works, but the display is too small for my eyes...

Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 - 8-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer SN 000024

via this auction

"Selling my beloved Prophet T8 after many years of great recordings and cared use. This was serviced a few years ago by one of the best western Canadian synth technicians. Its fully function and the keybed has felt replacement recently and it feels great. Lots of information on the net about this amazing synthesizer. Its midi functionality is great and I used this as my main controller for my DAW instruments and other synths with midi. The built in real-time sequencer is amazing! Poly After touch, 8 Voice, Velovity envelope control! Its been called the Rolls Royce of Synths in the book 'A to Z of Analogue Synths' by Peter Forrest.

Its in excellent shape, some little dings and scratches on the metal here and there. Was like that when I got it. Its lived in my studio since purchasing over 10 years ago." [posted here]

TAMA TECHSTAR TAM500 Analog Drum Synthesizer SN 200399

via this auction

"This is the 80's Tama Techstar TAM500, Tama's answer to the Simmons (most similar to the Simmons SDS8 in function and form factor). This unit is in good cosmetic shape with just a few scratches (mainly the one in the final picture seen above). Functionally, it all works, except the Attack sound (short adjustable burst of noise at the top of the note) does not fire on Tom 3... the Attack works fine on all other drum channels. Other than that, it is fully tested and functional."

10 minutes to TECHNO HEAVEN!"

Z-DSP | 10 years later | Stereo Echo | Filter | Mod | Pitch

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"The Z-DSP was one of my first modules and ten years later it's still going strong. It inspired many SPIN FV-1 powered effects modules, being FX-AID as the most succesful module so far. But can it compete with Z-DSP? Sure. It beats the big white/black module on price, size, algorithm count and the free algorithm catalog that covers any effect. But - imho - the Z-DSP algorithms are better and it offers a powerful feedback design. It's built to last another 10 years. I asked myself the question, 'isn't the chip getting old?'. Listening to the new TTA Stereo Bundle, i'd say no. But don't take my word for it. This is one of the longest videos I made so far. With a few exceptions here and there, this journey has been an adventure."

How to make a GOOD eurorack synth voice – with Nano modules

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"Eurorack modules like oscillators, mixers, filters, envelopes and VCA are almost inevitable when you’re starting with modular or expanding a system. But what things to look for when buying your first modules? In this video I use a compact but powerful synth voice from Nano modules to demonstrate a bunch of things to look for, all with patch ideas of course!"

SPROOM - Multi Effect Engine for Eurorack Synthesizer

video upload by NoisyFruitsLab

"Sproom, half space half room.

It´s based on the FV-1 DSP IC by Spin Semiconductor which got popular with some famous guitar pedal effects and is covering all types of quality reverbs, delays, chorus, flangers, tremolos, or combinations of them.

It´s stereo and operates with 6 MIPS at Fs=48KHz, or in other words excellent audio quality with a clean dry / wet path to adjust the amount of effecting.

It offers 3 banks with each having 8 different algorithms. In total 24 effects.

The input is normalized to R. Means with just plugging a mono source into the left input, the output becomes stereo.

Each algorithm can be controlled with one of the 3 potentiometers, or by conrol voltage.

Capable of -5 / +5V with the dedicated pot at around center position, or 0-10V with the pot fully closed. In other words, the pot acts as offset.

LED indication for clipping and CV ins.

The internal effects are tied to the IC and fixed. Bank 2 & 3 or EXT1 & EXT2 can be exchanged with EEPROMS on the backside.

Check into for the provided list of algos."

Sovage Engineering - L'Ecorcheur eurorack distortion

video upload by John Schussler

"I did a video a little while back comparing some distortion modules, and included the L'Ecorcheur. At the time I didn't really understand how the Glitchzr knob worked, so the demo was...sub-optimal.

Here's another try, focusing this time just on the L'Ecorcheur. Starting with the Glitchzr knob down, so we get a better comparison of its straight distortion capabilities, then later we turn it up for the full experience.
