ChucK (; codename "chai") Update

This one is in via supporting member, Loscha, who had the following to say:

"A new major release of audio programming language ChucK has come out.
ChucK has been on the scene for a solid 20 years now.
Apart from general synthesis and analysis, ChucK was a big mover in the early Live Coding music scene.
The language lets you add instruments and algorithmic elements to a live performance at will.
ChucK is a very easy and powerful language to learn."

The following was made in ChucK by Loscha back in 2018. You can find the code at the bottom of this link.

Details on the update via the ChucK email list :

"A new release of ChucK (; codename "chai") is here:

This is a major release; additions and updates include:

* ChucK + AI (ChAI) -- a set of AI/ML tools for building interactive AI
musical instruments and systems (thanks to Dr. Rebecca Fiebrink for
blazing the trail on interactive AI for music; thanks Yikai Li and the
students of Music AI):

Nancy's Secret Synthesizer

video upload by Light In The Attic Records

"Video by Hunter Lea"

"In this incredible BTS video from Nancy Sinatra archival producer, Hunter Lea, we go inside keyboard wizard Clare Fischer’s innovative deployment of the Yamaha EX-42 synthesizer on this truly classic release reborn anew. The clip breaks down how the EX-42 was used on songs like 'Arkansas Coal (Suite),' 'Paris Summer,' 'Tippy Toes,' and 'Friendship Train' by way of giving us a closer listen to some of those synth tracks via accessing of the original multitracks. 'It looks like some of the organs of its time, but this keyboard is a complicated analog proto synthesizer,' as co-producer Hunter Lea explains."

Modbap Per4mer effects trails - AR Envelope Adjustments

video upload by Modbap Modular

"Can the Per4mer effects trail be adjusted? Of course. This is actually a day one feature. Each of Per4mer’s 4 effects has a built in AR (attack release) envelope. It’s adjustable from 5 ms to 5 s.

SHIFT + ARCADE BUTTON + Turn FX1 = adjust AR envelope attack

SHIFT + ARCADE BUTTON + Turn FX2 = adjust AR envelope release

If you really want to get creative, try these adjustments on any of the 4 effects. Try experimenting with the AR envelope on Glitch and Tape Stop with wet dry set to 50% or so for some really cool sound on sound effects."

Switched Multiple. Passive standalone.

video upload by DecadeBridge

"This switched multiple features 4 inputs and 6 outputs. Inputs C and D are normalled to inputs A and B when disconnected. Each output can be muted with the relative switch set to the centre. Inputs can be muted also as well as swapped with the flick of a switch to quickly create variations."

VCA-LPG. Passive standalone.

"This passive standalone features 3 VCAs with switchable low pass gates.
With the switch in the centre position the passive filter is bypassed. Two different LPGs can be selected by setting the switch to the left or the right.

Make Noise Soundhack Spectraphon - Spectral Oscillator - Sonic Lab Review By MATTHS

video upload by sonicstate

"Officially announced at Superbooth, the Make Noise Spectraphon is another collab with the brilliant mind of Tom Erbe of Soundhack, who has worked with Make Noise to create an unusual new Dual Oscillator Module.

The Spectraphon is the first modular to be build on the new digital hardware platform, a concept engineered by Tony Rolando and Jeff Snyder, it offers more i/o at higher resolutions and a lower noise floor.

Spectraphon has two sides, A and B which offer Spectral Amplitude Modulation (SAM) and Spectral Array Modulation (SAO).

@matthsmatthsmatths (aka Matt Hodson) takes us on a journey through the Spectraphon.

The Ciat Lonbarde Peterlin - Peter Blasser Meets Benjolin

Chaos Patterns with the Ciat-Lonbarde Benjolin / Peterlin Synthesizer

video upload by Duskmos

Note the "Peterlin" made it's first appearance with Hainbach on May 7 here on MATRIXSYNTH. This post features a few examples from others, and additional details and pics below.

Above: "In this Signal Colors Palette video, I'm taking a first look at the Ciat-Lonbarde Benjolin / Peterlin, a tiny wooden synth featuring a nod to synthesis history by putting the focus on sound creation with a circuit design inspired by the 'Rungler' by Rob Hordijk.

Hang out while I coax some cool sounds from this wildly experimental sounding synth!"

"Listen to albums, download tracks and support me at
I was lucky to get a Ciat-Lonbarde Peterlin (why not Blassolin though?) from the first batch at PatchPoint and these are clips from my first don´t-know-what-I-do-sessions with it. First one: solo. Second one: with Lorre Mill Double Knot 3. Third one: with Moog Subharmonicon."

Ciat Lonbarde Peterlin meets Serge VC Resonant Equalizer

video upload by La Synthèse Humaine

This is the first post to feature the Peterlin.

"first patch ring modulates peterlin xor to vcfq with a sine wave - both controlled by rungler. this is mixed with the peterlin audio output in the vc res eq and its bands get modulated by various peterlin outputs

second and third patches have a bit less and a bit more going on... all gets a little confusing and knotted up

check out my newest album Contraluz here: https://critiqueofeverydaylife.bandca..."

"Dressed in their signature banana jack-laden wooden enclosure, the Peterlin is Ciat-Lonbarde's take on the Benjolin: a tribute to the synthesizer designs of Rob Hordijk. Deceptively simple in appearance, the Peterlin is a highly interconnected instrument containing two oscillators, a resonant lowpass filter, and Peter Blasser's take on the infamous Rungler circuit. Clocked by one oscillator, the Rungler is a shift register feeding upon not only its own output, but also listening to the output of the other oscillator to further influence its data with feedback chaos. As the Rungler's CV output is then fed into the oscillators and filter, a range of hefty drones and chaotic noise is possible. Of course, the Ciat-Lonbarde take on this classic experimental instrument is filled with its own mysteries.
