reSEMble FVS Poly Demo

video upload by Randy Piscione

"Another demo of four reSEMble panels (, this time polyphonic. Also included the Oberheim FVS in this one. I'd like to encourage everyone to listen to the entire video, in stereo, with headphones if possible.

Before anyone says anything silly like, 'it doesn't sound like the FVS,' you are correct. Why is that? Although this can sound very similar to an FVS, it takes time to get the patch exact, I wanted to demo the PM Foundations version of an FVS, and even an FVS doesn't sound like an FVS, meaning none of my four SEMs sound exactly the same. The VCOs, VCF and EGs are based on the SEM. If you want to hear how close reSEMble can get to an SEM, check out my other videos.

I have included the wavefolders and ring modulators in some of the patches as well."

"Bastl launch their new Basil stereo delay.

Basil is a compact, yet flexible, digital stereo delay module built on the Bastl Pizza platform. It offers clean delay, as well as lo-fi flavors, and its Space section opens the doors to exploration far beyond simple delay territory. The Basil delay buffer modulates really well, allowing to recreate most classic time-based effects, such as chorus, flanger, vibrato, pitch shifter, reverb, and stereo widener, among others, and navigate between them with just a few performative gestures."

B2600 Basic Patch Points

video upload by O.Z. Hall

"I created this video for new owners of the Behringer 2600. The information in this video is very basic, but essential. Recently two such owners presented me with basic patching question. I suspect with the availablility of this affordable but very powerful synth, there are many who are either new to semi-modular patching or just overwhelmed by the number of patch point on the B2600.
I hope it helps you on your journey of exploration of the B2600."

Order Roucha Legio here:

Roucha Legio is a 12 dB /octave state-variable multimode filter for the Legio stereo DSP platform from Noise Engineering. Roucha Legio’s filter has lowpass, bandpass, and highpass settings and a cv-able resonance that goes from beautifully clean to the ideal squelch for acid basslines and in-your-face filter sweeps. Roucha Legio’s filter frequency can be adjusted with the encoder or with the one volt/octave CV input. The encoder also includes acceleration: turn it faster to increase the frequency change.

Roucha Legio includes Fold and a configuration switch to add wavefolding to the signal chain before, after, or both before and after the filter. Finally, Roucha Legio is easy to bypass/enable for dramatic cuts, buildups, and drops: just tap the encoder or send a gate in to the module.

MiniMod Keyz: 1 Synth, 1 Pattern, 10 Minutes - Berlin School-inspired one-synth improvisation

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"This was an early run with our MiniMod Keyz prototype test machine, using just the onboard arpeggiator, voiced by 3 VCOs, Ring SM, Transistor Ladder Filter and more. This system is superb at recreating the sounds and vibes of those early electronica records of the 1970's, providing the sound of the Minimoog and the flexibility of the Moog modular systems that dominated them. As the author of this video I could quite honestly sit for over an hour making sounds such as this on just one sequencer pattern or arpeggio, it just sounds that good. Of course, the system isn't trapped in the music of the past, it's a fully-modular Eurorack system after all, but when it comes to the vintage electronic sounds and tones that brought this musician to the world of analogue synths in the first place, the MiniMod sure does deliver the goods.

The MiniMod Keyz system is available to purchase now. Check out the website for pricing, dealers, and other products:

The AJH SYNTH Eurorack range consists of high-end modules, all hand-made in the UK, most of which are based on classic, vintage designs, authentically recreating the circuitry of much sought-after analogue instruments and technologies of the past, whilst greatly expanding them, and bringing them to modern Eurorack levels of convenience, limitless flexibility, and reliability.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

TipTop Audio About Their Revolution: ART | Superbooth 23

video upload by Thomann Synthesizers

"One of the disadvantages about Eurorack certainly is Polyphony - and then there was ART. Three simple letters but perhaps the change many of us have waited for. Tiptop Audio´s ART aims to be nothing less than a patch cord revolution. At the Superbooth 23, the manufacturer showed us the new format. Chords, melodies, harmonies and polyphony in the Eurorack - all over a single cable. According to TipTop statements, they have been working on ART for over ten years. There are also first concepts for ART-compatible modules."

Novel Back 小说背面

video upload by Meng Qi

"I am honored to be invited to compose the music for "Der Einsiedler," a science fiction written by the Chinese novelist Liu Yang. The novel was translated into German and published in the magazine "Kapsel" (Time Capsule). A cassette tape was launched simultaneously, with German reading on side A and music on side B, which I composed with the Wing Pinger, Wingie2 & Magneto, the further experimentation of Wing Pinger + resonators in a feedback loop. I named this piece of music Novel Back.

--from @kapselmagazin--

Kapsel magazine presents »Der Einsiedler« by Liu Yang from Sichuan and a soundtrack composed by Peking-based synthesizer experimentalist Meng Qi. In this story, a successful businessman encloses himself in a deep underground bunker. Disconnected from the world starts a journey leading him to the universe's end and beyond. Berlin-based actor Lukas Hoffmann reads the story. You can find the story in the latest issue of Kapsel, published in March at MaroVerlag. It is the second Kapsel tape on Econore, the first one is still available here:"

Superbooth 2023: Frap Tools - Cunsa

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Giovanni from Frap Tools at Superbooth 2023 about their new Cunsa quadruple analog multimode resonant filter. This filter has a unique open architecture with semi-normalizations that can be used in different ways such as double stereo, single quadruple, or quadruple mono, and is designed to not lose bass at high Q resonance settings. The Cunsa's character knob can tame distortion and imparts a different character to the sound depending on how it is rotated. Combining these parameters, Cunsa can produce a wide variety of effects, and the filter has a ping circuit, turning it into a sound source with a natural and organic decay.

Cunsa Available Early June Price: 840 Euros"

Superbooth 2023: Neuzeit - Warp

video upload by sonicstate

"Thomas from Neuzeit showed us Warp, a new monophonic synthesizer voice that features wavetable and additive synthesis. When connected to an expander, the Warp can also become a four-voice polyphonic unit. The oscillator has an XY grid that allows for intuitive drawing of frequency spectra and wavetables, with different locations creating different sounds, and the ability to create and save custom wavetables for use on other synths. The Warp has the standard features of detune, oscillator, and sync, and can create a range of sounds from glassy to grungy.

The Warp's most impressive feature is the intuitive and fun-to-use editor, where users can draw their own frequency spectra and wavetables onto the XY grid using various algorithms. The user can alter the transition and position of the sounds on the grid to achieve their desired sound, and the editor allows the user to load various wavetable files from an SD card. The Warp can also export the whole XY grid as a wavetable in different formats.

Superbooth 2023: DinSync - RE-101 Keyboard Synthesizer Based on the Roland SH-101

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Paul from DinSync at Superbooth 2023 about their new product, the RE-101, which is a replica of the Roland SH-101. The RE-101 is built from parts that are 100% compatible with the original SH-101 board. Paul mentioned that they have made a replica of the original SEM VCO, which was used in the original Roland machine. They are also working with Analog Renaissance, the premier experts on the 3109 circuit, to create a chip that is indistinguishable from the original. This chip is especially brilliant in the distortion of the resonance, which is what sets it apart from other clones in the market. DinSync's unique selling point is that they want to make a machine that is as authentic as possible to the original and becomes legacy spare parts.

DinSync's RE-101 is the perfect solution for customers that haven't had spare parts for over 30 years. Service centers have been shut down over the past 10 years, making it impossible to get service for an old vintage Japanese machine. Paul said that the filter on the RE-101 is so integral to the SH-101 sound, as it produces the classic slightly distorted resonance. The SH-101 was Paul's first synth when he was a young lad, so this product is a real labor of love. The RE-101 will be available as a kit in the future, so customers can build a brand new machine or repair their vintage machine.

The product is 8 days old, surely the newest thing at Superbooth this year, and is the result of Monojack's obsession with experimenting with sound by experiencing it in the moment, rather than judging it. The idea of Tape Rack is to design your own custom tape machine using different parts and arranging them in your own order to capture a moment in time, use it as a delay, or a sound-on-sound recording device. During the interview, Monojack demonstrated the versatility of Tape Rack by adding different modules and effects, creating unique sounds.

Superbooth 2023: Norand Mono MKII - Modulate and Morph Everything

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Mathieu from Norand about their new synth, Norand MK 2, a fully analog synthesizer with a sequencer and super fast patch-changing. While it may appear to be a basic synthesizer at first glance, the device offers an array of features that make it pretty deep. For instance, each parameter has its own modulator and envelope, allowing users to modulate the filter and add an LFO on the frequency with ease. The sequencer allows users to sequence notes and patches, making it easy to achieve something really interesting in just a few minutes.

The oscillator is a triangle core that is slightly skewed, giving it a unique sound. The filter is fully continuous and state-variable, allowing users to move between band pass, low pass, and high pass. The super quick patch shifting even allows you to turn the synth into a drum machine, the pads have x, y and z pressure sensitivity and is capable of moving between standard synth sounds and deep into glitchy weird territory.

Norand MK 2 Available June 2023. Price: 840 Euros"

Why to Love the Korg NTS-2 Oscilloscope (spoiler: because it's WAY more than just a scope)

video upload by Rochefsky

"On my modular eurorack system I take my oscilloscope / tuner for granted - and on my desktop synths I really needed a similar solution. I always need a tuner, I often want to see the shape of the audio or LFO modulation waves I'm using, I also often want to check the voltage outputs of certain CV signals - and with my semi-modulars - like the Moog Mother-32 or Grandmother synth, I could really use a secondary LFO for modulation - and I'm not always near my eurorack system for that.
The Korg NTS-2 Oscilloscope has become my perfect answer. It was a $229 kit (including a beautiful $45 hardcover book...) and does all of the above with loads of options.
In this video I'm just giving an overview of most of the features in case you're considering it and want a walkthrough before you buy.
Here's what's in the video:
