Meditative infinite reflection pool - 1010music Lemondrop, TX-6, Monome norns “pixels”

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Floating in the ether. My script 'pixels' sends out some vibes in G Phrygian. The notes being determined by the graphics. The 1010music Lemondrop granulates the live input from the norns. The TX-6 mixes it all.

I’ve really enjoyed the lemondrop more lately. That’s great it turning things into swirly soundscapes."

Barbie's Drum Machine - FIVE MINUTES WITH 1010 Music Razzmatazz

video upload by sonicstate

"The 1010music Razzmatazz is a powerful little pink machine. With Samples, synthesis, FX and sequencing in an unfeasibly small box - the nanobox range, it packs quite a lot of doof, and blat, and tish too.

Chris from @BOOelectric gives it a once over and puts it through its paces."

Bad Gear - Roland V-Synth

"Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about Roland V-Synth.

Qithesizer - Powerful Multi-Engine Hybrid Software Synthesizer

video upload by Robkoo Official

Press release follows:

Robkoo releases Qithesizer as advanced hybrid soft synth designed to work with wind controllers like the Chinese company’s cyber-like Wind Synthesizer R1

SHANGHAI, CHINA: digital art-facilitating software and hardware company Robkoo is proud to announce availability of Qithesizer as an advanced multi-engine hybrid software synthesizer for iPad, iPhone, and Mac (AUv3) — creatively combining physical modelling, virtual analogue, and wavetable synthesis, while working wonderfully with MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) wind controllers like the Chinese company’s critically-acclaimed Wind Synthesizer R1 (, and, obviously, others also available from various competing sources such as Akai and Roland, for instance — as of June 30…

An appropriate name choice can quickly play a part in helping shape an appreciation for a new product, something Robkoo readily appreciates by effectively combining Qi (气) — commonly known as the circulating life force whose existence and properties are the basis of much Chinese philosophy and medicine, originating from the mandarin dialect and translating to English as air or breath — with elements of synthesizer — typically defined as an electronic musical instrument producing a wide variety of sounds by generating and combining signals of different frequencies — to create Qithesizer.

Working with wind controllers like Robkoo’s revolutionary Wind Synthesizer R1 — released last year to widespread critical acclaim as a futuristic, cyber-like MIDI wind controller instrument with responsive RGB light bars, motion control, Bluetooth® connectivity, customisable hotkeys, onboard sound banks, and a dedicated app allowing amateur and professional players alike to directly (and literally) light up their performances to audiences for the first time in history, having mastered its intuitive panel design in a matter of minutes and achieved gig-readiness within weeks of first musically making its acquaintance — and, obviously, others also available from various competing sources such as Akai and Roland, for instance, is integral to the design ethos that brought about Qithesizer as the digital art-facilitating software and hardware company’s latest product. Providing users with the possibility of mapping their MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) hardware controller of choice to any Qithesizer parameter to facilitate real-time dynamic effects, enabling MIDI Learn synchronises all displays with their performance. Perhaps this move may well go some way towards securing Qithesizer a firm foothold in an already- oversaturated marketplace. But by creatively combining various synthesis technologies — to include physical modelling (with multiple physical models), virtual analogue (with basic waveforms), and wavetables (with hundreds of digital waveforms) — to form a powerful multi-engine hybrid software synthesizer with waveform and dynamic visualisations, bolstered by a 16-step SEQ (sequencer) section with a powerful pattern editor, Qithesizer clearly has what it takes to hold its own, no matter what.

With two wavetable OSCILLATORS, four physical MODELING instruments, three NOISE generators, three classic FILTER types, two (FILTER and AMP) ENVELOPES, and two Low Frequency Oscillators (LFO1 and LFO2), plus a well-specified MODULATORS section — with eight modulation slots, 11 sources, and 18 destinations — to its name, there is much scope for crafting original sounds with Qithesizer. No need, necessarily, to rely heavily on any prior synth-centric knowledge since Qithesizer, of course, comes complete with an extensive Factory library of pre-programmed patches.

Put it this way: while Qithesizer positively encourages experimentation by effectively rolling its multiple sound engines into one easy-to-use interface, it also brings the same level of sound design and portability — playing the onscreen keyboard means that there is no need, necessarily, to work with any external MIDI hardware controllers — to Apple’s iPad and iPhone; its compatibility with AUv3 — itself a newer version of the AU (Audio Units) plug-in format for Mac with additional features, and the only format currently available on iOS — considerably broadens its already wide-ranging reach and appeal.

Priced at $12.99 USD, Qithesizer is available for iPad (requires iPadOS 15.0 or later) and iPhone (requires iOS 15.0 or later), as well as AUv3 (requires macOS 12.0 or later and a Mac with Apple M1 chip or later), via Apple’s App Store here:合成氣/id6444722040

New AtomoSynth Tottem Drumsynth Eurorack Module

video upload by Atomosynth

"Hello World this is the new AtomoSynth Tottem eurorack module. It is a four-voice drum synthesizer, with all analog sound."

via AtomoSynth

We are proud to introduce our new eurorack module, the Tottem version 2. Our legendary drum synthesizer comes back this time with four independent, all-analog percussion synth voices. Two of them feature a full percussion synth with triangle and square wave oscillator, an envelope for the “sweep” effect, one modulator with triangle and square wave as well as noise, also a decay envelope for the overall volume contour. These are very flexible generating from powerful bass drums, toms, clicks, all the way to “laser gun” and weird glitch sounds. The other two voices feature an oscillator with “metal” and square wave, a white noise generator, a mixer, and also a decay envelope. These are great to produce metallic sounds like hi-hats, crashes, cymbals, clicks, beeps, and all craziness in between. Combining the two synth voice types you can expand the possibilities even further for more complex sounds. Finally an output mixer with individual level controls and outputs for each voice and a master output. The new Tottem produces a “raw” organic character sound, that does not emulate any drum machine and stands apart from the very polished and over-processed digital drum synthesizers and samplers, giving you a new sound to enrich your percussion palette.

Four analog percussion synthesizer voices.
Two voices feature, one oscillator, two decay envelopes, one LFO, and a noise generator.

Pharmasonic Model 101

Reasons to love your Pharmasonic 101 video upload by Tokyo-Noise

1. Fully reproduce the sounds of Roland System 100 Model 101.

2. There’s something about white synths.

3. PWM, noise, glide.

4. Timbrality. OMG those filters and VCO.

5. Sub oscillator 0, -1, -2 octaves.

6. HPF.

7. DIY.

8. Price: with the hype of new synths every month/week, prices for this serie have dropped down. I’m thinking if I should also get the 102 (ring modulator and S&H instead of noise and portamento).

Regarding timbre, my favorite mono synths are: Roland SH series and Arps, followed by Dreadbox, Sequential Circuits, Oberheim SEM, miniKORG 700 and Moogs. Korg MS 20 is a little bit “nasal” for my taste but the architecture is awesome.

"The Pharmasonic 101 really exists and it sounds great. It's a faithful reproduction of Roland System 100 Model 101.

I bought it fully assembled from Pharmasonic this year (2023) and it's only been tested and used for a couple of recordings. Since Pharmasonic seems to be making it again along with the 102 for the Japanese market, I'm selling this hoping I can get another one soon.

8 eurorack modules that are the equivalent of the Roland System 100 Model 101, plus a super useful Inverter / Multiple, all in 64 HP. The modules are:
- Mixer
- Noise
- Glide / Portamento
- Inverter / Multiple"
