Prophet 12 - How Analog can it sound? - *Only P12 Effects Used*

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds & Synthesis

Additional Parts

"Busy working away on the next Custom Bank, and I find myself asking, Why do so many people say the P12 doesn't sound analog enough??, I get the whole DCO vs VCO debate will never end, but considering this synth was made way before the 'vintage' mode was developed, it can still sound remarkably warm and full of character.

This patch utilises the Binaural stack, only saws, but modulated, touch of LFO on filter, LFO modulating the P12 delays, and it sounds Lush, Warm and Very very analog to me.

I'm interested to hear the current opinions on this fantastic synth. I for one fully understand why the late Dave Smith pegged this as his favourite ever creation.

Custom Banks will be available at

thanks for watching.

Prism Circuits - Spore Easel Expansion Card

video upload by Prism Circuits

"Short demo of the Spore - Easel Card Expander module.

This module is based around a cycling envelope that allows extremely long envelope times to create dramatic effects and movements within the Buchla Easel. This module also features analog noise to create textural gestures to your patches. Noise can be used as CV or audio, both on their own corresponding jack types. Beside the internal functions it also features CV control of the Buchla Easels modulation oscillator and complex oscillator, opening up more complex timbres."

via Prism Circuits

The SPORE is a Buchla Easel expansion card that extends the functionality of the Easel itself.

At its core it is an attack decay envelope that can self-cycle and be pulsed from an external source. This Envelope features full CV control over the Duration of the envelope - positive and negative, a HOLD function that will freeze the envelope at its current level, a WINDOW comparator with CV control over the width of the comparison, and EOC (end of cycle) pulse output and a pulse input to cycle the envelope at its currents slider positions. Also features an onboard cycle switch to be used as an LFO. LFO can go into audio rates.

Also onboard are a few CV parameters of the internal functions of the Easel.

M-OSC SHAPE - CV Input - Modulation Oscillator wave select

M-OSC MOD - CV Input - Modulation Destination switch

C-OSC WAVE - CV Input - Complex Oscillator Timbre select

C-OSC SHAPE - CV Input - CV over Complex Oscillator Wave knob

DECAY CV - CV Input - CV control over internal Envelope Generator Decay

This module also features a fully analog audio Noise Source, including White, Pink & Grain Noise. The Noise Source section also adds the noise sources as CV outputs to control other parameters of the Easel. The AUX Noise can be selected from 1 of the 3 onboard noise waves with the corresponding switch. Audio output can also be selected independently from the CV noise.

Last but not least! The SPORE also features a secondary Random Voltage source that is independent from the Easel's internal source.

The back of the unit features 8 color morphing LED's that adds a nice touch when performing in a low light environment.

"A quick video showing some 'digital' type patches I made on my Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 rev 3.2. Obviously a digital synth has a hugely expanded sonic palette from an analog one, but it was fun to see how much some of these patches can evoke and emulate that kind of early digital sound."

Circuit bent Yamaha DD-8 - Experimenting with BandPass Filter

video uploads by batchas

"I wanted to tame the whistle which affects badly the DD-8 sound when the frequency is pitched down. This high pitched whistle can be very annoying as it can be extremely loud!
So I installed a Buchla 194 filter and a mixer on the DD-8. It enables me to divide the internal DD-8 signal into four frequency bands that I can adjust and mix together.
I use my Scrotum Lab’s Le Seq to modulate the frequency of the DD-8. Le Seq is clocked by the DD-8.
I made an external box with a voltage controlled clock divider. It allows to divide the weird DD-8 clock and drive my Le Seq external sequencer. Efx = Hologram Microcosm"

entanglement space

video upload by kirkis

"Entanglement space is a quad 32bit operation DSP effects processor featuring 64 algorithms focused on highly experimental topologies.
for a full array of algorithms, their brief descriptions and cv/pot parameters"

Entanglement space is a quad 32bit operation DSP effects processor featuring 64 algorithms focused on highly experimental topologies. Each processor core stores 16 algorithms that can be entangled with other core programs to create your own complex algorithms / spectral palettes for the stereo field or quadraphonic space. Accompanying the 64 algorithms are 12 modulators with time complicating attenuation for use of control voltage over 6 differential parameters of each of the 64 algorithms, 4 voltage controlled gates and a 4 input - pan directional mixer with stereo out. Each processor core has individual in and out via banana and quarter inch formats, allowing complex routing for introducing feedback and multi instruments to be routed through entanglement. Entanglement space algorithms interpolate between pitch shifting and warping, amplitude modulating, spectral reverbs, ring mod delays, feedback delay network phasers and through zero reverb flanging time based effects.

New from Bard Synthesizers - LPG and Ring Modulator

video upload by John Schussler

"I recently got a couple new modules from Bard Synthesizers. The VTG low pass gate is available as part of his normal product lineup, but the ring modulator is a custom build. I'm guessing if you like it you could talk him into building you one as well, but note that it takes a bit longer, what with it being a custom build and all.

Here's a little sampler to get an idea how they sound. Plus some extra from the Erica Synths Fusion Ring Modulator at the end for comparison.

Source VCOs are an Acid Rain Chainsaw and a Befaco Pony VCO.
