Uncertainty | Virus TI and Rhodes Piano somber meditative soundscape

video upload by MIDERA

"Today my oldest daughter turned 6. I don't think there's any joy greater than being with my kids, as hard as it is watching them grow and age. It's a lot more fun watching them age than it is watching myself age (greying hair and losing hair, sun spots, wrinkles, ease of sustaining injuries which do not go away). But it's certainly more bearable aging when I see them.

I showed my daughter a photo of the first time that I held her, the uncertainty, the feeling that "wait, this isn't magical... why don't I feel like it is?" and then the feeling of "This is a huge responsibility." I told her how I felt, but that it was more than worth it. She gave me a great big hug, and two kisses. Somehow, I know I got the greatest gift on her birthday. Although, she'd probably argue the Wendy's kid meal junk was her favorite gift of the day. Go figure."

Pointillist Convex Steel

video upload by Uncertain Music Corps

"Feedback trio.

Spring reverb in self-oscillation is processed by a Serge Resonant EQ and the Disting EX Granulator algorithm.

The granulator is controlled by the excellent DistingEX TouchOsc editor available from here

Its pitch is controlled by the MakeNoise 0-Control

No external fx. The Disting granulator has its own reverb stage built-in. The output from the ResEq is recorded dry.

The lows go low. If you want to hear them you know what to do."

MiniMod Keyz User Guide - Advanced Controller Features (Arpeggiator, Auto-Chord, LFO, Audio Outputs)

video upload by

"The third part of our User Guide for the MiniMod Keyz - A full Minimoog-based analogue Eurorack modular synth and Cre8audio NiftyKeyz package available from AJH Synth. This part shows how to use the advanced features of the NiftyKeyz controller that are especially useful to the MiniMod voice/monosynth. Starting with the arpeggiator, including its sequencer mode. Then the auto-chord function, the on-board/built-in LFO and it's wave shapes. Finally the keyboard re-trigger modes and the audio outputs.

This is a complete ready-to-go Eurorack synthesizer system, with additional Moog CP-3-style mixer, dual sub-bass/sub-octave generator, 3 input analog ring modulator based on the EMS Synthi/VCS3, voltage-controlled high pass filter, and a powerful multi-function, clockable LFO complete with random modes. Couple these high-end, vintage-voiced, and generously-featured modules with the extensive capabilities of the Nifty Keyz, and you've got one powerful monosynth.

Cre8audio official NiftyKeyz user guide: [2nd video here]

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.

Xaoc Devices Odessa: full guide and fresh patch ideas using additive synthesis

video upload by Tom Churchill

"Odessa, by Xaoc Devices, is one of my favourite modular sound sources. At the time of recording, it’s been available for well over three years, but as far as I can see it’s still pretty much the only Eurorack voice of its type - a one-knob-per-function, five-voice paraphonic, digital additive oscillator - and I think it’s often still a bit misunderstood.

So I thought now might be a good time to take a fresh look at Odessa and see how it stacks up in 2023. If you’re an owner who hasn’t used it for a while, I hope it inspires you to dig in again, and either way, I hope you just enjoy some of the sounds and maybe learn a bit about additive synthesis in the process.

Note: I’ve done a few videos in collaboration with Xaoc Devices recently, but this isn’t one of them. I bought Odessa with my own hard-earned cash last year, so it’s not sponsored - I’m making this purely as a fanboy and I have no other agenda.

Maxing out the QUARTZ // Analogue Solutions Colossus Modules

video upload by Starsky Carr

"What can you do with one of these? I run through how I created a track using a whole load of functions as a single patch on the Analog Solutions Colossus Quartz. It gave me 5 big juicy tracks on analog beef that worked together as a single entity.

There are 12 VCOs, 8 Filters, 8 Envelopes, 4 VCAs (plus 8 in the filters), 2 noise generators, S&H, random voltage generator, 2 spring reverbs, 2 ring mods, 2 32 step analog sequencers, an oscilloscope, touch control keyboard with 16 step sequencer, 2 31x15 pin matrices, a 10 channel stereo analog mixer, and 2 XY joysticks... ie a fair bit to play with. All analog of course.

Some free stuff plus patch banks and samples:"

Ambient synth jam with Dreadbox Nymphes, Erebus, Kinotone Ribbons, Chase Bliss Mood MkII

video upload by Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised synthesizer jam performed entirely on hardware.

I recently bought the Kinotone Ribbons, and a member of my Patreon community wisely suggested that I run the Dreadbox Nymphes through it. He was very right (thanks, Robbie!): the Nymphes already has tons of analog synth character, but the Ribbons' stereo reverb plus its tape effects really made the perfect ambient sound.

I played around on the Keystep until I found some chords I liked, sequenced the chord progression on the Keystep, and then went searching for a second synth to complement the Nymphes & Ribbons.

I settled on the Erebus because it's small, sounds fantastic, and has lots of hands-on control. To add some character of its own, I used the Mood MkII to add some sample-reduced tape, plus some of its own reverb. It ended up lo-fi in its own way, and quite different from the Nymphes & Ribbons combo.

At first I thought I might play the Erebus separately, but the slow pace, plus wanting to keep it meditative, made me try something different instead. Here, I sent the same sequencing data to both synths. However, since the Erebus was in mono mode, it had to choose a single note from the polyphony of the chords, leading to a sort of melody line of its own. It was a happy accident, and a peaceful finished song.

Dreadbox Nymphes into Kinotone Ribbons - chords
Dreadbox Erebus into Chase Bliss Mood MkII - lead
Arturia Keystep 37 - sequencing

Thanks for listening."

Instruō Lúbadh & Cš-L // Tape Looper as a Glitch Ambient Machine

video upload by Dexba

"This video follows the live stream from two days ago!
A single voice from the Instruo Cs-L is being fed four different sequences coming from the TipTop Buchla 245t, passing through the two mixers of the 257t, being once again mixed into the Instruo [1]f before entering the Instruo Harmonàig. A touch of reverb coming from the Strymon Starlab, and the recording stereo into the Lubadh, using both the decks.
Tape emulation is cranked up, as the input volume, to get all the tape flavour even while passing through, and after a good amount of recording, you will hear the modulations ready to mangle the tape, overlaying some glitchy madness to the otherwise relatively calm background.
I hope you'll enjoy it! 🧡"
