Prophet 12 - How Analog can it sound? - Part #5 (Trance / Ambient)

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds & Synthesis

Additional Parts

"This will likely be the last of the sample videos for this bank, I am nearing completion of the 100 Sounds. And I am incredibly happy with how these are turning out.

This one is an old old favourite track of mine, completely chilled version, but all in one split patch.

The delays are from the P12, but I did run this through a long reverb just to give it that ambient / trance effect. I highly recommend no matter what synth or synths you have to invest in some great reverbs, they can bring your synth to life.

anyway, as always thanks for viewing.

Crazy Vincent SELLS 100 synths & keeps 26! EP1 = intro, synth list, and new studio space.

video upload by Vincent Presley

"After 2 years of crazy synth buying, Vincent has the new Secret Records studio down to a mere 26 synthesizers that he claims are better than the rest.....
Before you watch, maybe you can make your own list of what you would have kept or make some guesses about what Crazy Vincent kept. Remember..... he's not like other people.

Going down the Rabbit Hole with Apollo View!

video upload by Signal Sounds

"The Rabbit Hole from Apollo view is a 16HP summing mixer with characterful valve saturation & distortion. Rabbit Hole is a hybrid solid-state and vacuum tube design. It has two input channels with independent vintage VCAs. The outputs of the VCAs are summed and passed to a solid-state Drive circuit which at higher gain settings hard clips the signal before entering the starved cathode dual-triode vacuum tube. The OWTH - Off With Their Heads diode LED clipping circuit can be engaged for further distortion.

Rabbit Hole is capable of adding subtle warmth or total audio destruction. The Curiouser expander module adds an additional 2 inputs. Multiple Curiouser modules can be daisy-chained to suit your mixing requirements.

5 Eurorack patch ideas with the Wavefonix W100 Modular Synthesizer

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have 5 patches for Eurorack Modular Synth systems that I’m exploring with the Wavefonix W100 6U system. These patches are applicable to many modules, systems and multiple formats so try them out with what you have.

Join us for an exploration of modulating filters with oscillators, using free running LFOs to shift wavetables and bit crush FX, layering ring modulation tones, chaining FM and AM “operator” style, percussion synthesis tips and using multiple envelopes for layer more complex modulation.

This video is also an exploration and somewhat casual demo of the Wavefonix W100 system. We overview the modules included and get a feel for the sound and patch potential throughout."

Hexinverter Mutant Hot Glue eurorack mixer: DIY build and demo

video upload by Extralife

"I recently built a new mixer for my eurorack drum machine. I was previously using an outboard compressor to process the drum machine which was quite inconvenient and very noisy, so I picked a design with a built-in compressor, Hexinverter's Mutant Hot Glue.

The module is available as PCB and panel set from various retailers. It's a VCA design with a few somewhat rare silicon items. In this video I compare its design and sound to the compressors I was using previously - the Wampler Ego V2 as well as the FMR Really Nice Compressor, which uses a very similar circuit.

This module also has a built-in distortion and send/return feature, which I will make use of by adding a dedicated reverb/delay to the rack."

video upload by Max Davis

"Very cool little compact synth. Oscillators have a wide range that can get sharp and angry to cut through the mix like a stick of salted butter."


video upload by AnalogAudio1

"This video shows the capabilities of the SCI Six-Trak equipped with the latest firmware version 14. The best part is the programmable amount of oscillator detuning in UNISON mode, which can be stored in a patch. This gives much greater control and makes the Six-Trak even greater for big, monophonic sounds. The Six-Trak has a much rawer basic tone than today's analog synths. Raw analog power at its best. It's a kind of differently configured SCI Prophet-600.


There are 100 patches, they will load to 00-99 in the RAM memory on your Six-Trak. As always I aim to create great playable sounds easily translatable to your own Productions or for Live use. I have created basses, arps, leads, pads and my usual styled analog keys too. I hope you enjoy these sounds as much as I enjoyed creating them!

You will receive all the sounds from my video plus extra sounds that are not shown in the video, 100 patches in total. The soundset comes as a sysex file with a patch list and loading instructions (PDF).

Six-Trak OS UPDATE V 14: This sound pack has been specifically programmed to take advantage of the latest firmware version 14. This is a chip that you can buy online and easily install in your Six-Trak (drop in replacement). If your Six-Trak version is lower than 14, the unison sounds will sound slightly different.

The "SIX-TRAK V14 Soundset" soundset costs 20 Euros, payment is via PayPal. To purchase it, send a message to:

IMPORTANT: NOW KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR SPAM/JUNK FOLDER! I answer within 12 hours. After payment you will get the patches (including a patch list and loading instructions, both as PDF) to your email address.

The patches are royalty free. Use them for your music as you prefer! Buying this soundset you purchase the right to use these sounds in your music, releases and gigs."

video upload by e y l v y

Testing VAPoly16, playing with the parameters, going through some presets. At the time of writing this, the app just came out with an intro price I think makes it totally worth it ($5.9)."

"VAPoly16 is a virtual analog bitimbral polyphonic synthesizer for iPhone, iPad and Mac. It features 16 voice synthesizer, effects, sequencer and audio visualization tools. It operates as a stand alone or as an AudioUnit Extension (AUv3). Stand Alone supports Ableton Link, MIDI and audio file export.

The synthesizer consists of two 8 voice synthesizer, which features two oscillators, two ADSR envelopes, resonant high pass and low pass filter and an amplifier per voice. The oscillators features continuously variable wave shape and wide variety of modulation. The filters are modeled on the Sallen-Key filter circuit for classic analog sound. The Effects include delay, chorus, flanger, reverb, eq and compressor. The sequencer features piano roll and automation editor to program 16 bar pattern per clip. Project files can be saved in iCloud Drive, so that the project can be accessed from iPhone, iPad or Mac.

Main Features

Virtual analog 16 voice bitimbral polyphonic synthesizer

16 bar patterns per clip. Total 16 clips.

Strung Along - Jam #50 - Ambient Plaits into Monsoon [Modular]

video upload by Beast of Burden Music

"Fiftieth Jam! I'll celebrate by treating myself to a synth jam.

For this, I wanted to use the string sound in plaits with a random sequence to simulate some varying fingerpicking sounds. In the end the strings sounded more metallic and percussive, almost like a hammered dulcimer.

I programmed one random trigger in temps utile and kept this as the steady picking rhythm. I then programmed a second trigger which is much faster. I then ran both into a sequential switch and had a third random trigger flick between the two. I play around with the multiplication of the second sequence to bring the rapid notes in and out. With more modulation sources, I’d have looked to modulate this element but I like having something to play around with.

Turing machine quantised by O&C to a Japanese scale for pitch.

Shallow LFO modulating the harmonics to bring in the more classic string synth sounds.

To round things out I used Monsoon as a delay and added quite a bit of reverb for ambience."

"Flex Operations are a powerful feature of Pamela's PRO Workout that allow outputs to be taken 'off the grid' for functionalities such as swing, random ‘human’ fluctuations in timing, and unique up and down ramping of the clock speed. The various Flex Ops make it easy to create groovy and organic rhythms, ever changing CV modulation signals and more. In this video we take a look at the different types of Flex Operations."
