Sequential OB-6 Demo by Giaga Robot

video upload by Algam EKO

"Giaga Robot ci dimostra nel dettaglio tutte le possibilità di programmazione, le funzioni, la struttura di sintesi, filtri, modulazioni e gli effetti di questo potente synth.

Il suono analogico unico, frutto della collaborazione tra Tom Oberheim e il compianto Dave Smith, viene generato da una catena di sintesi sonora composta da 2 oscillatori discreti per voce e un filtro a 2 poli derivato dal progetto #SEM, per essere all’occorrenza processato attraverso due multi-effetti digitali. Presenti anche arpeggiatore e sequencer polifonico."

Caladan first prototype build stream

"This will be extremely boring to most, but to some, maybe not.
There might be bad language, burnt fingers, tears and breaking things.
If you like watching paint dry, you're gonna love this."

Color Fantastic

"Another study in color and sound. Adding more texture manipulation to the @cycling74com jitter patch, then creating a quick soundscape with Vital, @madrona-labs Aalto and @NewfangledAudio Generate in Bitwig."

Higher Ground (Roland JD08 // JU06A // TR6S // Arturia Keystep Pro)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"After a small break (though it's the first time I've taken so long to upload a new video since I created this channel ­čśŐ), here is a new video featuring a new Roland Boutique synth: the JD-08!

This digital synth is renewing the famous Roland JD-800 from 1991! The JD-08 is a 128-voice synth, with 2 parts. Each part has 4 layers (each layer can be considered as being a full synth, with its own waveform, filter, envelopes etc.). So it has enough power to create some nice sounds and textures!

So for this video, the JD-08 is playing a chimes sound (sequenced by track 4 of the Keystep Pro) and a string sound (played live). The bass is sequenced by track 2 of the Keystep Pro. As for the drums, they are coming from the TR-6S (sequenced by its internal sequencer).

- Roland JU-06A : Bass

8/9/23 .com Q123 (440Hz) SSL 1660 (gate rest) 1310 + LWSS + MooSonics + Zerosum Inertia (oscillate)

video upload by Cfpp0

"Same SSL 1660 sequence (except for the D slider position) as in the previous video, but with the 1660 gate set to rest, so that it deviates from steady 1/8th notes (the SSL 1310 is swinging them into 16ths). The Q123 Standards module (which has an oscillator that produces 440Hz to reference for tuning) runs into Zerosum Inertia The Destructor Beam, but self-oscillating and tuned higher than 440Hz. So flipping the 440Hz switch on or off selects either 440Hz or tube feedback and provides two tones to drone against the SSL 1660 sequence."

K-Teck - Gem - Max for Live Binary Sequencer

video upload by K-Teck

"Out now: Gem - Binary Sequencer... Gem: Binary Sequencer
The heart of Gem is a 12 bit Linear Frequency Shift Register (LFSR)
The 12 points represent a binary number which is then scaled to create a note value
Every step rotates the binary sequence by 1, changing the note output
The sequence can be played either every step or as a euclidean pattern

Making Custom Eurorack Front Panels with a Laser Engraver

video upload by Extralife

"I finally got a new, larger eurorack case! But it's shallower than my old one, so I need to re-format some modules to fit. Time to make a custom faceplate with my new laser engraver.

I'm combining 3 of the Hexinverter NeinOhNein drum modules into one so I can stack the PCBs and make a module sandwich. This is a very ad-hoc and manual process, but the front panel can be designed on the computer for a more professional looking result.

I ended up using some satin black Rustoleum spraypaint on top of some matte white Krylon. The laser is absorbed by the black paint, ablating it, and reflected by the white, leaving it intact. You can then remove the paint residue using rubbing alcohol.

The laser settings were very forgiving, I think I ended up using about 20% power and 100mm/minute for most of the marking. I found it was helpful to slightly defocus the laser to cover a wider area during engraving and to not mark the black paint when moving around in 'finding' mode (5.5W at 1% will still etch black surfaces!).

The BlackBox is Buggy, But He Made a Track Anyway! (Feat. Minifreak)

video upload by Ricky Tinez

"Get ready for a wild ride.. In this Dawless jam, aka a Compact Creation, the BlackBox by 1010music became a wild beast with some potential bugs? Who knows, most likely user error, haha! Don't worry, we're rolling with it and pushing forward to keep the track going! Outside of the drums, all the magic comes from the Minifreak sounds that I loop into the Blackbox. It's a bit of chaos, a dash of unexpected, but a whole lot of fun.

5 Jams with Cursus Iteritas wavetable oscillator from Noise Engineering

video upload by Noise Engineering

"Check out these 5 Jams using the Cursus Iteritas dynamically generated wavetable oscillator using orthogonal functions. We hope these jams will inspire you to think of new ways to patch.

0:05 Jam 1
0:48 Jam 2
1:38 Jam 3
2:08 Jam 4
2:51 Jam 5

More info on Cursus Iteritas:

Jam 1: We're adjusting the Cursus Iteritas' Fold and Structure controls while sending the signal out through the Electus Versio. The BIA with the kick.

Jam 2: We're adding in CV and pitch inputs on the CI one at a time, then adjusting the Center control to change the harmonic used to build the waveform. The Clep Diaz is adjusting the release on the Sinc Bucina. Mix is then sent through Electus Versio for the clocked reverb.

Jam 3: In this ambient patch, we've added a pitch input and 4 CV inputs to the CI, then we stepped aside and watched it play this beautiful generative journey.

Jam 4: It doesn't take much to make some exciting timbres out of the Cursus Iteritas. It plays very well here with Mimetic Digitalis, Fractio Solum, Horologic Solum, Loquelic Iteritas Percido, Bin Seq, and Imitor Versio. The Sinc Bucina shapes the sounds from Cursus, and the mix is sent through Electus Versio for some clocked reverb.

Jam 5: This time we're sending gates and modulation through every CV input on the Cursus Iteritas. The result is a huge variety of harmonic sounds and timbres. Then we follow that up with some Melotus Versio granular processing.

Instru┼Ź Superbooth23: THE MOVIE (TRAILER)

video upload by Instru┼Ź

"This is a movie that follows the creative crew that is Instru┼Ź.
In 2023 the company travelled to Berlin to present at the Superbooth trade show/festival.
At the time of these captured events, the expanded team at Instru┼Ź numbers 20+ personnel.
Pretty much the entire crew goes to Berlin as we show off who we are and what we make.
This is a look behind the scenes of a Eurorack modular synthesiser manufacturer as they present at the world's best Synth-show!

Directed by Mathew Pieraccini
Edited by Jas┼Źn H. J. Lim

"This 'documentary' is the beginning of a new form of content that I'm working on in parallel to the endless stream of new instruments that we're developing.
It's a long time since it was just myself working solo back in the early days of Instru┼Ź
I now have the privilege of working with some of the most fun and creative people I've ever met.
We collaborate now as a creative coop. My hope is to showcase more who we are, what we're doing and how things work at the workshop here in Glasgow.
I've always been a fan of behind the scenes content so my plan is to open thing up a bit to showcase my collaborators and what they do inside and outside of roles at Instru┼Ź"

Delay - internal JP-08 delay.
Reverb - from Logic Pro X.

We glad to present you a new soundbank for Roland JP-08 – KRK.

It is a continue Trance line of the first sounndbank for JP-08 but with a special taste of Adriatic Island – KRK, after whom this bank got its name.

This soundset was packed with a 16 Sequences and 64 presets. The sounds are perfect for any style of Electronic Music and not only. It’s a pack of Leads, Plucks, Pads, FX’s and you can find here even big Brass sounds, which sound warmer than you can imagine from a 4 Voices synthesizer. A bunch number of sounds using all the LFO‘s possibilities, so you can get a feeling that it’s more than just a one LFO in it. in almost every sound you will feel the spirit of that very famous Jupiter-8 from Roland.

All the presets using only internal Delay, so you hear in demo what you get.

So, in final you get:

64 Roland JP-08 Patches

1970's Farfisa Syntorchestra

via this auction

"This is an awesome poly/mono synth from Farfisa that we just got back from getting serviced (the front switches were previously damaged) but it is fully functional now. There is some light cosmetic wear throughout the synth but it's generally in pretty great shape for it's age. This is a nice straightforward string machine and 2VCO mono synth. It's got a very basic feature set but it more than makes up for it in how it sounds."

Nanoloop FM + Playdate Glitch Visuals

video upload by Perplex On

"Receiving my #Playdate recently reminded me of another fun device that has been greatly neglected by me unfortunately, the #NanoloopFM. So i thought i could take the chance to bring all these clicky buttons together ­čśë All sounds here are coming from the Nanoloop (spiced up with #Artifacts app @numericalaudio4903 ). It’s plugged into the Playdate via TRRS which runs an early version of an upcoming playdate app @humbletune that creates awesome interactive and audioreactive lofi visuals! I’m switching here through different scenes and add live glitch fx on the fly. So much fun! Here also projected from above using playdate’s mirror companion app."
