"Endlesss Studio, the company behind the collaborative music-making platform, Endlesss, showcased the world's first beat-making arcade machine at NAMM 2023. MJ, an Endlesss user, initially proposed the idea of having an arcade machine for beat-making, and Endlesss Studio took his prototype and developed it into the fifth iteration of the beat-making arcade machine. The hardware and software have undergone significant improvements, and the machine runs on a Windows PC with plugins, including nature instruments and massive. The arcade machine has a scripting engine, enabling the creation of custom sampler and plug-in support.

The Endlesss beat-making arcade machine is perfect for real-time collaborative music production, as it runs on the Endless platform, allowing users to interact with others from all over the world. The arcade machine is only the beginning of the beat machine, as Endlesss Studio is about to announce a custom sampler, which allows users to build their own sample packs inside Endless. Furthermore, the arcade machine has a public jam feature where users can find people to collaborate with globally.

Finally, the Endlesss beat-making arcade machine provides users with the ability to log in to any device with their ID, as their creative tools are tied to their ID, rather than the device itself. This feature allows users to build their own sample packs and have access to them on any device they log in to. More information on the Endless beat-making arcade machine can be found on the Endlesss Studio website.

New Sibilla Stereo Digital Oscillator Eurorack Module from Clatters Machines

video upload by Clatters Machines

"Clatters Machines moves mountains with Sibilla stereo digital oscillator module acting as an ever-evolving sound machine for soundscapes, melodies, and drones

SAN BENEDETTO DEL TRONTO, ITALY: small town lovers of music and electronic instruments Clatters Machines is proud to announce (website-only) availability of its Sibilla stereo digital oscillator — translating the beauty and harshness of a semi-barren mountain into a 10HP Eurorack module that sculpts sound with various saw and sine waves running through intricate delay networks altered by LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators) and white noise to create constructive and destructive interferences, enabling ever-evolving soundscapes that can be both droning and/or melodic in nature — as of April 15…

Inspired by a mountain, designed by the sea. So few words, with so much meaning; those eight words that so subtly make an appearance on the Sibilla module’s rear represent its backstory, what inspired its creators, and where they are based. But, for clarity’s sake, the company collectively calls it: An ever-evolving sound machine for soundscapes, melodies, and drones.

It is fair to say, though, that there is more to that Sibilla backstory than meets the eye. “Living by the sea can be peaceful and inspiring, but also quite stressful as the tourist season reaches its peak and, all of a sudden, a small town doubles its number of citizens,” continues Clatters Machines Co-founder, engineer, electronic designer Michelangelo Nasso. “Those are the moments in which we’re constantly looking for air and a new space that is able to inspire us while calming our nerves! Luckily, we live in a weird region in which a 40-minute drive means the difference between swimming in the sea and hiking at 2000m above sea level, surrounded by semi-barren lands which actually make you forget for a moment that you’re still on planet Earth. One of those magical places is called Monte Sibilla — Sibella Mountain, and our new module tries to pay tribute to it.”

As a stereo digital oscillator, Sibilla’s L/M (left/mono) and R (right) channels are the output stages of two audio feedback loops, each of which is made up of a main sub-sinusoidal wave oscillator and two saw and sine waves with frequencies affected by the generation of (right-channel) harmonics and (left-channel) sub-harmonics. Saying that, though, all of those waves have different phases with respective offsets constantly affected by minor variations created by two pairs of GRAINS randomly fluctuating within the waves’ amplitude spectrum and being sampled at a certain speed.

Thereafter, the waves meet each other at a so-called ‘common point’ — where everything happens and changes continuously — together with two white noise sources, creating constructive and destructive interferences that are affected constantly by two LFO movements. Moreover, such interferences are then run into a resonant low-pass filter and distributed to four different delay lines from where they are finally fed back into the audio loops at different time intervals, depending on the GRAINS movement.

Making it to Sibilla’s summit as an ever-evolving sound machine for soundscapes, melodies, and drones translated from the beauty and harshness of a semi-barren mountain is destined to be a long-lasting musical journey that is as adventurous as it is inspirational in and of itself."

Yamaha SY22 Music Synthesizer (1990)

All sounds in this track are SY22 factory presets, including the drums. The SY22 was launched in 1990 and is effectively a hybrid of Yamaha's outgoing FM synthesizer technology with their new AWM sample-based engine, with 2 FM operators and 2 AWM oscillators. A joystick provides vector control to blend between the chosen waveforms in the patch in different ways, either by affecting their volume (Level) or their pitch (Detune).

Nemesis delay walkthrough on synth (Part 1)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The Source Audio Nemesis delay belongs to a small group of 'old' stereo delays that have maintained their popularity over years. Why? Because they're good at what they do. This is my second time with the Nemesis, so am very happy to get all these beautiful sounds back again.

Here I give a basic overview of the pedal, blab on at length about its operational philosophy, then go through all 24 engines using the Neuro software editor.

"It's ready for a new owner and/or someone ready to fully restore it. All keys, jacks, sequencer, buttons knobs work and it sounds amazing however it could use some TLC to get this beast back to it's full glory. It's the extremely rare Mk1 version w/o midi and it's from Europe so the voltage is 220v. There's also some surface rust on the rear as most of these have, I guess EU is a damp climate but it's never gotten worse under my watch and stays covered in a clean studio. I can supply a high quality step up converter to be used with 110v.

Some servicing to fix the scratchy filter cutoff pot and the joystick pots is needed to be back to 100%. I refused to spray contact cleaners in the pots so the next owner can do so if they choose. Overall a good servicing could be done however it can also be used as-is if you want to jump right in jamming and recording with it."

Hydrasynth Firmware 2.0 – Introduction & Performance by Dominic Au & Tutorials

"Ken Flux Pierce from the Hydrosynth team introduced us to the new 2.0 update for Hydrosynth, which includes major updates to the synthesis engine that allow for per voice modulation, oscillator bit reduction, and quantized LFOs. The oscillator section now includes a bit reduction knob that can reduce the waveform from 24 bits down to two bits, allowing for dirty and crunchy sounds. The LFO section includes a quantized knob that adds rhythmic syncopation to the LFOs. The voice modulation menu is also very deep, allowing for offsets per voice, which can be used for sequencing or manipulating filters and oscillator shapes.

The update allows for analog emulation with wave table synthesis while also expressing interesting digital aspects of the Hydrosynth and includes a step LFO that has a one-shot step mode, allowing for self-generated patches that evolve on their own.

NAMM 2023 - AmeNote - ProtoZOA - MIDI 2.0

video upload by sonicstate

"MIDI 2.0 is set to revolutionize music technology in the coming years. AmeNote's Mike Kent told us about the four years of prototyping by the MIDI Association, which has been using a hardware development tool for Mini 2.0 called the ProtoZOA from AmeNote. Apple OS and Google Android already have MIDI 2.0 integrated into their operating systems and Mike showed us the MIDI 2.0 driver which is being developed by AmeNote for windows in operation.

According to Kent, MIDI 2.0 is expected to grow gradually over the next five years, with more products being released in 2024 and beyond. Kent emphasized that this gradual change is essential to ensure a smooth transition for users, and to account for the fact that not all manufacturers will be able to release MIDI 2.0 products instantly.

AmeNote will make ProtoZOA available to all non-member developers after the MIDI Association publishes MIDI 2.0 specification updates expected in June 2023 and then makes the github public.

Non-Member Developer Price: Standard ProtoZOA hardware with permissive license to source code for USB MIDI 2.0, MIDI-CI, MIDI 1.0/2.0 Translation, Universal MIDI Packet, UMP Endpoint, Function Blocks, and more: $290. With Ethernet expansion: $320. With Ethernet expansion and display: $350."

NAMM 2023 - Audio Modeling - SWAM Instruments

video upload by sonicstate

"Audio Modeling, a company that specializes in physical modeling instruments, showcased their SWAM range of instruments at NAMM 2023. John Gilutin gave us a demonstration of a physically modelled flute and delved into what physical modeling is and how it differs from sampling. Physical modeling instruments use algorithms and mathematical snapshots, which are smaller and have faster load times than samples. He added that these instruments offer more expression.

The SWAM range of instruments works as audio units or VST plugins, and the host interface, Camelot, is another platform that Audio Modeling offers. Joh also showed us some different models of saxophones and violins using a pedal for expression, and the velocity was programmed for notes, which allowed him to get all sorts of movements that a regular violin player would have.

More information about the SWAM range of instruments and Camelot can be found on Audio Modeling's website.

SWAM Full Bundle Price: 750 USD / Euro

Individual instrument Price: 120 - 250 USD / Euro"

"SWAM (Synchronous Waves Acoustic Modeling) is a new-generation, sophisticated proprietary technology that enables musicians, performers, and composers to overcome the classic limitations of traditional samplers. Conceived by Stefano Lucato and developed in collaboration with Emanuele Parravicini, the SWAM engine combines concepts of Physical Modeling and Behavioral Modeling with the Multi-Vector/Phase-Synchronous Sample-Morphing technique.

Perfect for multi-vector expressive acoustic instruments such as woodwinds, brass and bowed strings, the SWAM engine is currently available in 3 different versions: SWAM-B, SWAM-W and SWAM-S for modeling Brass, Woodwinds, and Bowed Strings."

NAMM 2023 U-he Filterscape Bundle First Look

video upload by sonicstate

"At NAMM 2023, Sonic State caught up with Urs Heckmann, founder of U-he, to discuss the new FilterScape plugin. Although an older plugin, U-he has updated it to give it a whole new breath of life. FilterScape is a form band EQ with eight snapshots where each snapshot can have a different EQ setting, making it useful for different song sections. There are also modulations for the frequency, queue, and gain for each band separately and separately for each snapshot. The EQ section also has filters and parallel bandpass filters and can be dependent on the stereo field. The plugin has a mixer section with two mixers, allowing for different configurations, and modulation for envelope followers and filters. The plugin also includes step sequences, LFOs, and a delay that can sit in various parts of the mix.

FilterScape is part of a plugin bundle consisting of three plugins, which includes the U-he MFM2. Although the concept behind FilterScape is simple, the new design and layout make it more accessible and user-friendly. For more information on the FilterScape plugin and U-he's other products, visit their website."

"4MS showcases four new modules at NAMM 2023 and Dan gave us an overview of two of the new modules - the Sampler and the Looping Delay. Both modules can be purchased as DIY kits or fully assembled units. The Sampler allows users to play wave files from an SD card with simple controls for pitch, length, start position, and recording. It can also play super long samples up to several days long.

The Looping Delay sets the delay time by clock and has super low jitter clock so you can feed it out to other devices. Users can change the timing to all divisions or multiples of the clock and can make loops up to a minute and a half long at 48 kilohertz 24 bit. The Looping Delay also has a CV input and a feedback knob that can go up to 100%.

NAMM 2023 - Embodme - Erae Touch MIDI Controller

video upload by sonicstate

"Edgar Hemery introduced us to Embodme's beautiful MIDI controller Erae Touch. These surfaces allow for flexible layouts which users can freely configure themselves. They feature about 1000 LEDs and force sensors, which make them sensitive to touch, including after touch, continuous gestures, and release velocity. They are also durable enough to be used with drumsticks.

These surfaces are connected via USB-C or MIDI 2.0 via mini-jack, and the configuration of the layouts is done through the Eerie Lab Editor, which allows users to drag and drop elements, change colors, and create custom objects. Up to 16 layouts can be saved and recalled for each channel.

Erae Touch MIDI Controller Price: around 850 USD / Euros"
