Tasty Chips GR-1 - Granular Jam (With Osmose and Matriarch)

video upload by NGC0 Music

"This is a weird video, I've live-sampled a Rhodes piano loop into the GR-1 (The quality is terrible when it's live-sampled, probably my biggest problem with the GR-1...), later in the video (skip if you get bored) I've added the Moog, improvised shortly on the Rhodes, and also on the Osmose. It starts boring but gets nicer."

Elektron Octatrack & Arturia Microbrute Jam

video upload by Easy Tiger

"I am jamming with the Octatrack and the Microbute. I think they make an excellent pair. The Microbrute is very simple but has nice analogue sound with lots of character. The OT on the other hand can get pretty complex, has loads of FX and the cool LFO's. So they complement each other in a very good way.

The Microbrute was the sound source for everything you hear in this one."

How to make dub techno chords with the Blukač Endless Processor

video upload by Tom Churchill

"I bought the Blukač Instruments Endless Processor this week, and after spending a couple of hours playing around with it I came up with this deep, dubby techno patch, which I’ve broken down in this video.

The basic idea is to create an infinite chord by capturing and layering some simple individual notes from a VCO - in this case the New Systems Instruments Harmonic Shift Oscillator - then sculpting the sound further and adding rhythmic movement by modulating an LPG.

Channel 1, the higher-pitched chord, runs through the Serge Resonant EQ and then Make Noise Optomix, which I’m ‘striking’ with a trigger from the Beatstep Pro. Channel 2, the lower-pitched chord, runs through the Serge VCFQ and into the other channel of Optimix, controlled by an envelope from Joranalogue Contour 1. Both channels get a bit of tape delay from the Zoom MS70CDR pedal. The only other ingredients are some 808 drum sounds and a sine sub-bass, plus a splash of reverb in Ableton.

Please note: this isn’t a sponsored video - I bought the EP myself and have no connection or affiliation with Blukač Instruments; I’m just a fan :)"

Blukač Instruments - Endless Processor - Sound Examples

video uploads by Blukač Instruments

via Blukač Instruments

ENDLESS PROCESSOR is a dual-channel infinite sound sustainer machine. Put your favorite instruments, unique timbres, or field recordings — virtually any sound — and make it last forever.

It is not a looper in the usual sense - Endless Processor resynthesizes your sounds to create a perfect clickless stream while preserving the timbral and tonal character of the original.

Endless Processor always listens to audio input and keeps a most recent history.

Experiment with sustaining little bits of a sample or make a massive wall of sound with the ability to select how much memorized audio to process.

Stack your sounds to create harmonies, textures, or drones with 5 layers per channel. Each layer can be re-processed or cleared while keeping other ones in place. Set fade-in and fade-out time to quickly or gradually introduce a new layer or remove the existing one. Additional controls will help you to adjust or shape a channel volume (think built-in VCA).

Behringer EDGE vs Moog DFAM Are they the same?

video upload by Starsky Carr

See this post for Starsky Carr's initial demo of the EDGE.

"The Behringer Edge is Here! But how does it sound? Here its put up next to the Moog DFAM, and as far as comparisons go this was extremely good fun to make.

The big takeaway for me was... if you haven't got one... YOU NEED 2 :)

Synths galore, getting ready for some live gigs!

video upload by Jeremy Parker

"@JeremyParkerMusic presents a quick taste of my new Moog Minitaur MIDI bass pedal rig, joined by the Minikorg 700fs, Arturia Polybrute, Arturia Keystep 37, and Elektron Analog Rytm MKII. This time I'm getting ready for some upcoming gigs with my good friend @cowboybenalman, who I join regularly on his Twitch stream: . I am testing the Soundcraft Ui24R to be our main mixing rig that we will use to both multi-track record and live stream the gig. I have another group that I'm playing with, using almost the same setup. The next gigs are below:

Making sample magic with the Elektron Octatrack MkII (live performance)

video upload by Jay Hosking

"For all the samples used here, plus the amazing community of musicians who made the sample pack, please support my work on Patreon:

A semi-improvised jam performed solely on the Elektron Octatrack MkII.

For our spring collaboration, my Patreon community and I put together our first sample pack, a collection of loops and one-shots for both melodics and drums/percussion. It's an incredible collection of over 250 samples, and to celebrate its creation, we made songs using the samples as our starting point.

Here, I started by taking my favourite loops and one-shots from the sample pack and turning them into a collection of perfectly sized sections for the Octatrack. Once I imported them into the Octatrack, I started mangling and developed scenes, transitions, and extra parts to fill in all the gaps. The Octatrack is the perfect device for taking an 8-bar loop and figuring out a way to get from the beginning to the ending of a song.

Thanks for listening, and I hope you check out and use the sample pack for yourself."

Roland S1 - Tweak Synthesizer - All 16 Preset Patterns

video upload by Bruno Garcia

"Roland S1 Tweak Synthesizer - Preset Patterns
In this video you can ear all the 16 Preset Patterns of the Roland S1

Yes, the Roland S1 only has 16 preset pattern what a shame in my opinion. :(
The Roland T8 Beat Machine has 4 x 16 = 64 of course not all are good but it can always be a good starting point or simply inspiring.

Yes, you can record all the 4 x 16 on the Roland S1 but presets comes only with the 16 the ones I show in the video."

Improvise jam of Meng Qi + Yukes: Synthesizer, Guzheng and Xiao's Encounter

video upload by Meng Qi

"This was the first time Yukes and I met in person. We initially connected on Bilibili when he created a documentary exploring the development of synthesizers in China and mentioned me in it. We kept in touch online for a long time, and when Yukes visited Beijing, I invited him to my slightly cluttered home, which serves as the backdrop for every episode of Synthesis Minority. I played host to this American Guzheng specialist, along with my two birds and two cats.

During our meeting, we recorded a video of an improvisation jam. I played the Wing Pinger, Wingie2, Magneto, and Steel Tongue Drum, while Yukes played the Electric Guzheng, Xiao, Metal Zone, H9, Blackhole, and Plus. If you have the patience to watch the entire video, you might come across some intriguing footage."
