The evolution: Poly Evolver upgraded encoder edition ambient soundtrack

video upload by MIDERA

"Last weekend I managed to replace every single encoder on my Poly Evolver. It has now evolved. It uses 24-detented encoders, which work much better than the originals. After 3 months of ownership my encoders that I applied deoxit to, needed it again. I wasn’t going to keep going with that so I bought the encoders and replaced them all.

Day 1: This took me 7 hours to complete. Not only did I take forever, I managed to ruin two pads in the process and panicked about it. I managed to repair the leads, thankfully, but it was a terrible experience, most of which happened within the first hour of work. I knew I still needed to do the rest of that board and the other two boards. This board was the right most board. It was also the hardest because of the 16 step sequencer section which had LEDs right next to the encoders.
Day 2: This took me 3 hours to complete. There were no issues.
Day 3: This took me 1.5 hours to complete. This was the left-most board. The problem with this board was that once I reinstalled it – a few of the encoders didn’t work. I panicked and took the board out and found all of the traces to be intact. I plugged it in again and they still didn’t work. It turns out these were the encoders that only worked when oscillators 3 and 4 were pressed. So obviously they didn’t work.
Was it worth the effort? I don’t know. I still feel like I have too many synths and this is just another one. It sounds really good, it does – but when you have so many, and have so many that sound so good, it is hard to justify everything I do have. It sounds so close to the Matrix 1000 – but yet, I find myself still believing that is one of my favorite sounding synths :/ And the lack of 6 voices makes the PE just a little underwhelming in that sense. But either way, I hope you enjoy my first noodling with it after the evolution."

Taste the Analog Rainbow! // An intro to the Farbfilters from Making Sound Machines

video upload by DivKid


Anyone ever wish their bright coloured teeth rotting treats were actually lovely characterful analog flavours of audio processing for you Eurorack system? Just me?

Here we have the Farbfilter series of modules from Making Sound Machines. The range includes the Farbfilter (Moog LPF + overdrive), Farbfolder (west coast classic wavefolding), Farbshaper (an absolute character machine) and the Farb Highpass (Moog style HPF + tilt EQ).

This video is an introduction to the range with a patch on each modules and some good fun bum wiggling patching with them create a thick and animated stereo image at the end.

As this is an introduction to the modules and we have plans for a future in depth demo (in my usual styley) you have the chance to ask questions, make requests and comments to say what you’d like to see and hear in the demo. Leave a comment below to get involved.

Prophet 5 Shootout: Softube, Repro-5, Arturia vs a Prophet 5 Rev4

video upload by Starsky Carr

"Get ready for a geekfeist. Softube Model 80 and U-He Repro-5 are the two main contenders for the Prophet 5 Rev3 plugin crown, while the Arturia Prophet 5V is carrying the flag for the rarer Prophet 5 Rev 2. There are minor differences in the 2 models - the filter and envelope responses are different, but they all sound like Prophets.

BUT... which is best for you. They all do slightly different things and approach emulations in their own way."

Exploring The Ciat-Lonbarde Benjolin

video upload by HAINBACH

"Peter Blasser of Ciat-Lonbarde adopted Rob Hordijk's Benjolin into his own wooden synth world. He made it into a surprising idea machine that brings out new patterns and riffs from tiny dial nudges by the player. I have had the pleasure of trying out many prototypes along the way, and here is a demo of the production unit I received as a thank you for my feedback. Thanks to Richard Scott ( for the insights.

Eurorack: Polyrhythms Electronic Jam feat. Metropolix - Subharmonicon - Mother-32

video upload by lucafrancinimusic

"I've programmed two sequences in Metropolix, the second one skips a beat creating an unfinished loop. The Doepfer clock divider spits out triggers at various divisions that clock the DFAM, Mother-32 and the Subharmonicon, which at the end of the video adds its own polyrhytm using the two internal sequences.

AMBIENT Roland SH-4d & Roland Jupiter-Xm

video upload by Alba Ecstasy

"Ambient Patches 👉

Not quite what I really wanted to produce today - I started to prepare a nice demo of the Roland SH-4d - but it turned to combining my new favourite synths: Roland Jupiter-Xm and Roland SH-4d into this track.

Putting these amazing synths together to create a space ambient Berlin School track was really nice and easy.
With both you can create on the fly and have really nice results!

Roland Jupiter-Xm provides pads, sequence 1, lead and drums.
Roland Sh-4d comes with the bass line and sequence 2.

No MIDI connection between them.
Some additional delay & reverb effects were added from Logic Pro X.

Name of the track: Iridium, from the 'Indigo, Iridium and the Cosmic Tree' album"
