Bass Station II Deep Dive // Novation Live

video upload by NovationTV

"Join -CALC- for another Novation live stream: 30 years after the original Bass Station was released we're also celebrating 10 years of Novation’s amazing analogue monosynth, Bass Station II. In this session -CALC- will chart the history of the Bass Station and explore the elements that make this a stand-out classic of our time.

Using the synth’s powerful analogue architecture and unique features such as AFX mode, paraphony and microtuning, we’ll be sculpting patches and creating sequences to show how this unashamed BEAST of a synth is still the go-to monosynth after all this time.

Benge - Forms 15 "Dawn" made on the DK Synergy

video upload by zack dagoba

"New album by Benge - part 15 of his FORMS Series - albums made on one synthesis system. Here is an ambient album made entirely on a Digital Keyboards Synergy II+ and Lexicon Model 200 / Primetime early digital FX

'The pure digital sounds of the D K Synergy, and the two very special effects units from the same year (1984), feature the same no-compromise approach to digital sound production, which in the early 80s was a very new territory for manufacturers and musicians to explore. To my ears, these abecedarian digital devices have a purity and warmth that is particularly suited to simple ambient pieces of music such as those presented on 'Dawn'. In some ways, it was the dawning of a new era for electronic music in general, and one which I happily reexplore on this album'"

Erica Synths Black EG 2 & Black DADSR EG

video upload by Erica Synths

"The Black DADSR EG and the Black EG 2 are new, full analogue envelope generators each with distinct features that significantly expand modulation palette of the modular synth. The DADSR (Delay-Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release) has voltage control over each stage of the envelope and independent Gate Delay section adds extra functionality to design advanced modulation patterns. The Black EG 2 has optional GATE LENGTH setting, which allows to generate full ADSR envelopes even, if a short trigger is used at the input and in the LOOP mode the module outputs full ADSR envelope instead of AD envelope.

*HASDR EG2 module in the video has a prototype panel and equals DADSR EG


00:02 - Patch 1 / Sending trigger to Black EG 2 and adjusting the gate length manually, therefore creating full ADSR envelope. EF is controlling the cutoff of the Multimode VCF which is fed with noise.

00:55 - Patch 2 / Playing notes and sending gates with keyboard, HADSR EG is set into loop mode therefore after the gate is released it starts to loop. Also release is controlled with the pitch cv therefore creating different looping envelope length for each note. HADSR is controlling the Multimode VCF cutoff.

01:36 - Patch 3 / EG 2 in loop mode. Creating full ADSR loop thanks to the built in gate generator, on the second part controlling the gate length with CV. EG is controlling the VCF which is fed with noise cutoff.

02:35 - Patch 4 / EG 2 is modulating the LPG which is filtering Wavetable VCO. EG 2 is triggered with steady clock and modulated with S&H from the Octasource.

03:21 - Patch 5 / Creating percussive sounds with DADSR EG modulating the FM of the VCO 2, and changing the gate delay to add some variety.

04:29 - Patch 6 / EG 2 is controlling Wavetable VCO pitch and DADSR is modulating the WAVE CV, HADSR release is also modulated with LFO therefore changing the envelope length.

05:10 - Patch 7 / By patching the bi-polar out into the release CV you can create logarithmic evevelope form the linear one in the looping mode.

05:50 - Patch 8 / Wavetable VCO wave cv controlled with HADSR which all cv inputs are modulated by the Octasource.

All FX (reverb/delay) in the demo are from Black Hole DSP 2 and upcoming FX module!"

Update: pics and details via Erica Synths:

The Erica Synths Black DADSR (Delay-Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release) is a fully analogue envelope generator that gives you extended control over events in your modular synth. It’s a looping exponential envelope generator that has voltage control over each stage of the envelope. An independent Gate Delay section adds extra functionality to design advanced soundscapes, like delayed modulation effects, wave morphing, etc.

The Erica Synths Envelope Generator 2 is a re-triggerable, looping envelope generator with some unconventional features that are very useful for experimental setups. What sets the Black EG2 apart from other envelope generators is its optional GATE LENGTH setting, which allows for generating full ADSR envelopes even if a short trigger is used at the input. Likewise, in LOOP mode, the module outputs a full ADSR envelope instead of a classical AD envelope. The gate length is both manual and CV controlled, which allows for using this envelope generator in compact modular setups controlled by trigger sequencers only.

Behringer Introduces the Abacus Modeled on the Buchla 257 and 281 / Make Noise Maths

Compare to Make Noise Maths

"Buchla's legendary 257 and 281 analog synthesizers are considered classics of their genre, implemented in a wide range of musical applications. The Behringer ABACUS is modeled after these original instruments, featuring an array of linear, logarithmic and exponential triggered or continuous functions.

List price: $99 (in stock and immediately shipping from our factory)

Modulate and Push the Tempo
The ABACUS can generate musical envelopes or LFO signals up to 25 minutes in length and as fast as 1 kHz. Designed for use with other modules, it also allows you to change the modulation depth, modulate backwards and create even more musical events by manipulating tempo.

Unlimited Creativity
By manipulating the ABACUS’ control knobs, incoming signals can be an amplified, attenuated, integrated or inverted for unlimited creativity. Totally unique and crazy warped effects like lag, slew or portamento can be applied to control voltages perfect for use with a sequencer, or synth keyboard. Up to 4 control voltages can be combined to generate even more complex modulations."

Loscha Opens up a Pollard Syndrum Quad!

video upload by Edward Jones

"This is going to be a long restoration!

The drum triggers go into the unit on a five pin Latched XLR, not a DIN as I said in the video.

The power supply is in an external box that has a mains transformer, and a voltage regulator, only to have it regulated again inside.

The MM5837 appears to be a no gp (I have a spare) but the real issue is that the faders and switches are all corroded and jumpy.

I did end up taking the panel board off, and the faders seem to be like the contemporary ARP kind. Plastic body, moving wiper body."

One patch, two sounds - modulating the DB-01 filter

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Modulating the filter is one of the golden rules of using the DB-01. If it's not adding a gentle wave, beefing up the rhythm with a synced pulse, or acting as an extra envelope, then how about some FM? Here the LFO is unsynced, and running fast as a sine wave. By turning the main filter knob up or down the FM effect is revealed - as well as the very high resonance.

Although the music here is slightly chopped up from my meandering 12-minute jam, it's all from one take and none of the other controls (well, except octave up and down) are moved. I think the DB-01 does well getting so many flavors from this one patch.

As usual absolutely no other processing or effect than what you see.

RSF Kobol Synthesizer with Memory Slots and Built-in Sequencer

via this auction

"This unit works 100 percent and is in a very good condition. The RSF Kobol was the French synth company's first compact keyboard synthesizer. It is a monophonic analog synthesizer with traditional controls, knobs, switches and two oscillators for a good solid analog synth sound. Unique are the 16 memory slots for saving your sounds and the built in sequencer.

Although it is mostly a traditional analog synth with stable oscillators and lots of knobs that allow you to control the ADS envelope, the filter section and the nice LFO, it did offer some unique features for its time. Most notably, the oscillator waveforms can be continuously swept across for a very cool morph from square to saw to pulse, etc. This, as well as note on/off and other parameters can be controlled via CV/gate. External sounds can be processed through the delicious SSM Kobol filter and envelope sections too."

EaganMatrix Programming for Osmose - Envelopes (Basic Constructions)

video upload by EaganMatrix Programming

"This video address some of the basics on how Osmose (and to a lesser extent Continuum) presets create envelopes (note I've always used 'an-velope pronunciation vs. 'en-velope) to impose Attack, sustain (pseudo decay) and release profiles and also presents a method to create arbitrarily complex envelope shapes using the new note graphing function. A follow up video will look at use cases for how these envelopes are actually used in Osmose System Presets. Note that you can create traditional ADSR shapes with programming but they are not the common use case when creating Osmose preset profiles.

Simple use cases are presented for applying envelopes to SL/SR output amplitude, applying enveloped for filter cutoff shaping and applying them to modulation inputs, though they are used for many other cases like shaping noise, dynamically altering shape generator frequencies, adding delay effects, etc. Those cases will be covered in the follow up video."
