Nord Stage 3 - Post Apocalíptico patch

video upload by MORADEL

"Messing around with my Nord Stage 3. This patch is called “Event Horizon”.

Hope you guys like it!"


video upload by EMEAPP

"A special instrument, a very very special instrument. The legendary ARP Pro-Soloist is definitely in a class all of its own as far as performance synthesizers go. The preset sounds are iconic across many different genres from prog rock to funk and the expressiveness of the keyboard interface is second to none. We alway keep one of these gems wired into our keyboard rig here at EMEAPP because of it's performance flexibility, unique sonic character and because its just plain fun to play! Join Don Slepian as he demonstrates different presets on this instrument as well as the supreme expressiveness of the keyboard's aftertouch action."

Why to love the Cobalt 8

video upload by Crybo Synth Sounds

"Continuing the Unconventional Sounds trend I've been on with my other synths, this time with the Cobalt 8. A lovely, little sounding synth. Great app used to edit it either on your computer or tablet. Highly recommend this synth.

"The Jeweler Cast melts, bends, and chisels all types of signals, audio, or CV. Composed of two independent sections, the Mix, and the Shaper, the Jeweler Cast combines a ring modula- tor, a crossfader, a wavefolder and a distortion. Thanks to its tool ensemble, this fully analog yet compact module can manipulate basic waveforms and complex signals in infinite ways."

Sequential Prophet 5 / 10 Rev4 - Promethean Vol 1 - first 40 Custom Patches Vid 1 of 2

video upload by Orano Music

"Finally I got around to creating a bank of 80 sounds for the stunning Prophet 5 / 10 rev4 Patches available at

This is the first 40 sounds in the pack. Next 40 will be on Reel 2 of 2.

And yes I used the arp from the Trigon-6 a couple of times, I understand the P5 / 10 doesn't have an arp, but it lets you all hear how certain plucks etc will sound arpeggiated. :)

To keep the Preview / Demo Videos as honest & transparent as possible, I have used only chorus and a tiny bit of reverb. If a video with effects would be preferred, just let me know and I'll repost with decent amounts of Chorus, reverb & delays etc.

This was put together by popular demand, and a custom bank I was unsure if I would ever do. The Prophet 5 / 10 was always a hesitant buy for me, due to it's mono output, but boy was I wrong, and I am so glad I took the plunge and grabbed the Prophet 10! this synth has got to be one if not the best synth I've ever owned, it is remarkable! This is the first P5 / 10 custom pack from me but most certainly will not be the last! :)

The bank (which has ended up a labour of love), is one where I didn't go searching to see who and what songs the synth has been used in, but a custom bank of sounds that came straight from the heart and head. The pack is full of Gorgeous Pads, Emotive Keys. Fat and Funky Basses, Leads, Plucks, etc all full of analog goodness!

The bank has been freshly baked using the latest firmware 2.0.4 which adds some amazing features to the P5 / 10 rev4! more control with aftertouch and velocity, Q Compensation which thickens up the higher resonant sounds (similar to bass compensation) adds a nice bit of punch!

Please ensure to have 2.0.4 (or higher) on your P5 / 10. to take full advantage of these great new features!

J3PO UDO Super 6 Presets -- Official Sounds Demo

video upload by J3PO

"In this video, Julian "J3PO" Pollack demos the 40 presets included in the "J3PO Super 6 Presets" library. 40 patches for the UDO Super 6. The price is $29 and you can purchase these presets from

For the recording of this video, the UDO Super 6 was connected directly to a UA Apollo, recorded straight to Pro Tools. All FX (chorus, delay) you hear are coming from within the synth itself. Some compression and general leveling was applied for the purpose of uploading to YouTube.

The Super 6 is a 12-voice polyphonic, binaural analog-hybrid synthesizer. A harmonious marriage of state of the art FPGA digital hardware oscillators and voltage controlled analog technology. It is flexible, immediate, powerful and refined with a gorgeous analog tone. Rich and evolving textures are easily teased from the unique super-wavetable core and can be shaped and manipulated with the binaural analog signal path and flexible modulation. Robust, compact and inviting to pick up and play with smooth, solid and responsive controls throughout, it cries out to be played."

Luftrum 27 - Patches for MatrixBrute

video upload by Luftrum1

"Here's a playhrough of 38 patches from Luftrum 27 for Arturia MatrixBrute. A classic soundset in the vein of previous Luftrum numbered releases, it fuses retro analog colors with cutting edge modern timbres.

This was recorded during the course of the day, so you'll see the transformation as it gradually gets darker with the approach of evening. All sounds in the vid are straight out of the MatrixBrute, with no additional effects or external processing of any kind. Apologies for the shallow depth of field.

Totaling 80 presets by Luftrum, this set provides a well rounded mix of timeless analog emulations, as well as esoteric explorations. Think Retro 80s meets Downtempo Ambient, takes a quick dip in 90's Acid and Detroit House, and finishes with a stroll through Berlin School. Expressive sync leads, 80s inspired synthpop keys, glistening arpeggios, warm paraphonic pads, berlin-school sequences, mixed with drones, cinematic duo-split compositions, percussive loops and more.

Inspiration was drawn from synth legends such as Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Vince Clarke, Klaus Schulze, Royksopp, Le Matos, Sinioia Caves and Disasterpeace to name a few. As always, patches are volume balanced with assignments for all four macro controls plus modwheel, velocity and aftertouch.

Waldorf Iridium / Quantum - "Pure Analog" Soundset (50 Exclusive Performances)

video upload by LFOstore

"Some time ago we discovered that there is no decent bank for the magnificent Waldorf Iridium, with sounds that blend classic analog with a modern touch. It became clear that we had a lot of work to do! No samples. No side effects. Only 100% fresh hardcore synthesis to get the most out of this synthesizer!

In this soundbank, a well-known sound designer Otto K. Schwarz offers 50 amazing presets with the focus on leads, synths, pads and ARPs. EACH preset is modulated by several parameters - the modulation wheel is assigned everywhere, as well as the Velocity and Expression parameter (don't forget to use it).

We got bright, fat and mesmerizing sounds that can make your composition or live performance really memorable! Sounds are suitable for scoring the soundtracks as well as for completely different styles of electronic music - for ambient, classical electronics, EDM, etc.

Join us on this amazing journey through the world of analog sounds, interpreted by the powerful Waldorf’s sound engine!"

"Whistle 2 is a physical modelling synthesizer with a banded waveguide as a resonator, disturbed with a granulated noise exciter source.

Banded waveguide synthesis is a physical modeling synthesis method that can be used to model elastic solids, like a vibraphone or a marimba. The synthesis method propagates exciter disturbances across tuned frequency bands. In whistle the amplitude and the partials of these frequency bands can be dialed in and automated.

The exciter of Whistle uses a granular engine to process the noise source. This design creates a uniquely unpredictable texture, with any tonal elements in the exciter source interacting with the resonator to create random harmonic content."

100% Digitone dub techno jam // Mastering Digitone part 2 groove

video upload by Dave Mech

"In depth course for Digitone ! Get here:

Ello, here's a new 100% Digitone jam. I created this groove for the Mastering Digitone course part 2. The groove itself you learn to create when following this second part of the course. The performance was recorded for this video. It's a deep dub techno groove made with only the Digitone. It still amazes me how much one can squeeze from this instrument. The little post processing I applied was a low cut eq to tone down the stuff below 30hz and a hint of dynamic EQ to make the mids a bit more forward. The limiter applied is practically doing nothing because I wanted the groove to sound as dynamic as it can be heard directly from the Digitone itself.

ASM adds features and functions to perennially popular Hydrasynth range with major (2.0) firmware update available for free

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA/HONG KONG, CHINA: creativity-sparking sensational products provider Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) is proud to add features and functions to its perennially popular Hydrasynth range — comprising the original Hydrasynth keyboard and Hydrasynth desktop, announced to widespread critical acclaim in September 2019, followed by the flagship Hydrasynth Deluxe and portable Hydrasynth Explorer models announced in September 2021 — with a major (2.0) firmware update available for free as of March 15…

As an appealing appetiser, ASM’s major (2.0) firmware update adds three more memory banks to the Hydrasynth keyboard, desktop, and Explorer models, matching the Deluxe’s existing eight banks for a total of 1,024 patches. Put it this way: all are cutting-edge digital wave morphing synthesizers that positively invite their respective users to get involved in designing sounds, so more memory makes sense. Speaking of sound design, each Hydrasynth oscillator — OSC 1, OSC 2, and OSC 3 — now includes a new BitRedux (bit reduction) parameter that allows users to choose between OFF, 16, 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, and 2 bits.

But — given that the 2.0 firmware update readily ranks as a major one — there is more, including more modulation options, thanks to a new modulation source called VoiceMod (voice modulator) that allows users to offset values for each voice that can then be applied in the Mod Matrix to vary chosen parameters per voice. Digging deeper, all five envelopes — ENV 1 through to ENV 5 — and LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators) — LFO 1 through to LFO 5 — have new Quantize options, so adventurous users can quantize their outputs to achieve unique stepping effects. Excitingly, now it is possible to choose to advance through the steps with each new note on with the LFOs in Step mode, meaning users can play through the steps one by one with each new note press.

For flexibility in the studio or at home, Hydrasynth’s version 2.0 firmware update also allows users to bypass each of the (Pre-FX, Post-FX, Delay, and/or Reverb) effects globally in the system page — to record a dry signal without having to edit each patch, in other words. Thanks to the 2.0 firmware update, Hydrasynth users can choose how the sustain pedal operates. The three options available are: Sustain — traditional sustain (as it has always worked), Sostenuto — press and hold a single note while playing notes above it, and Mod Only — disables the sustain function, allowing users to then route it in the Mod Matrix.

Meanwhile, mention must briefly be made of other added features and functions, to include: Arp range expanded to six octaves; new Arp Step Offset parameter; Bank selection from browser window; ability to randomize all steps in LFO Step mode; new display Dim, On/Off options; Glissando mode added to Glide options; fine control for more subtle options offered by Vibrato; and Local On/Off status recalled (with in-screen reminder). As ASM CEO Glen Darcey duly concludes: “We hope you like the new features in 2.0. I would ask that you download the manual; there are some good tips and tricks on each of the new features and functions in there.”
