Serotinal (Buchla Music Easel)

video upload by Electrum Modular

"A two-voice track on the Buchla Easel, with stereo delay and a little reverb added externally. The idea was to generate an irregular rhythm via the “arpeggiation rate” input, while maintaining the time signature via a MIDI clock. Further patch notes in the video.

Thanks to Jean-Francois for loaning the Easel, and to my son Max for designing and making the Easel stand.

Sequential Trigon-6 Module: Why You Should Be Using Synth Modules

video upload by Sweetwater

"Dave Smith’s synthesizer legacy was immediately cemented with the debut of the Prophet-5 in 1978. Nearly half a century later, Sequential continues Smith’s innovative spirit with the Trigon-6, initially released as a 49-key polyphonic analog synthesizer and now available as a synth module. It boasts the entire span of sonic capabilities that can be found in its full-size sibling, sans the keyboard. Packing power and portability into a mobility-minded module, this take on the immensely versatile Trigon-6 is a premium case study in what makes a solid synth module and why you should be using them in your setup. Daniel Fisher takes the helm to show you just what a bona fide module can do. Check it out!"

Late Night Ambient Soundtrack (Osmose, Microcosm, Nightsky, GR-1, OB-6, Matriarch)

video upload by NGC0 Music

"Couldn't sleep last night, so I've assembled a few toys and recorded this.
You'll hear mainly the Osmose going through the Microcosm + Nightsky (My only FX chain), the Rhodes through a Chase Bliss Blooper pedal (in delay mode), the Moog Matriarch (bass), and OB-6 (dreamy EP sound). I've then sent the full mix back to the Tasty Chips GR-1, did some granular tweaks, and recorded the outcome back into the main mix."

How To Properly Calibrate Your Minimoog Oscillators (by synthpro)

video upload by synthpro

"This is a video that I have had a request to make for some time now.
In this video I show you how to calibrate minimoogs with the version 2 oscillator board.

This video will also work for calibrating the Behringer D since it uses the same version 2 oscillator design.

NOTE: Calibration for the version 3 oscillator board is much different.

Olivella GRAVEDAD | 2-OP TZFM patch + MASS

video upload by Olivella Modular

"Two VCOs, near infinite possibilities!
Headphones recommended 🎧

With two GRAVEDADes patched in a modulator-carrier configuration, we explore frequency ratios with the octave sliders; manual and CV control of the carrier's FM INDEX; FORCE patched as a VCA for the MASS suboscillator, which is set two octaves below the modulator's pitch; and demonstrating the so-called "role reversal" that happens in TZFM by patching a V/OCT sequence into the modulator, while the carrier's own frequency and FM INDEX only affects the overall timbre.
This resulting signal from the carrier + the modulator's left MASS output are then sent into IMÁGENES for some stereo panning."

Groove Synthesis 3rd Wave demo tracks - This synth can easily be your ONLY synth!

video upload by Sean Christopher Synthesizers

"A good friend of mine recently told me that he thought that the 3rd Wave didn't have enough variety of sounds to be one's 'only synth'. In my opinion, I think that he is wrong. I decided to create some multi-track sequences using ONLY the 3rd Wave's sounds and built-in FX to show him that indeed the 3rd wave had a very versatile sound. I only used EQ'ing with Cubase when I created the tracks. I hope that you all enjoy my efforts. :)"

Lunchbox Voice Prototype gets patched ! - Low-Gain Electronics | 4U Modular

video upload by LowGainElectronics

"Had a shop visit from the talented @helenastndc all the way from Spain/Sweden yesterday! We had a great discussion about synthesizers, design/diy and education. She got a little time to patch on the lunchbox voice system prototype on my test bench. We didn’t get a chance to get a proper recording of it but I fired it up where she left it and grabbed this recording of it this morning. Just turned a couple of knobs during the recording to see what sonic journey it would take! Hope you enjoy! Headphones recommend for full fidelity!"

the BlueBeast® - Yamaha EX5 Virtual Sample Library for Desktop and iOS

video upload by Gospel Musicians

"Released in 1998, this was the first synthesizer I actually fell in love with. The EX5 was way beyond its time as it featured Analog Modeling, Virtual Acoustic Modeling, FDSP multi-Synthesis Modeling and of course sample playback. With a mixture of all of these sound synthesis techniques, the EX5 was literally a Blue Beast®. We were not able to capture all of the virtual modeling, but what we were able to capture was the warmth, phatness, and essence of the machine. We also were able to convert the analog waveforms into our own Phat Table™ format to capture all of the analog goodness of the VL technology. What you get in this virtual instrument is a beautifully sampled nostalgic representation in the spirit of the EX5. This is by far the most exhaustive and meticulously sampled EX5 virtual instrument, and is the closest you will ever get to the real thing.

Pamela's PRO Workout: External CV - Complex Modulation, Bursts & Beats

video upload by ALM TV

"Pamela's PRO Workout includes up to 4 built in (8 with AXON) freely assignable CV inputs that can control any and all of its parameters. This powerful feature allows for endless expressivity and complex modulation possibilities. Here we take a look at a few examples of how external CV can be used to broaden Pam's functionality even further, including the creation of a chaotic CV modulation source, burst generator, and voltage controlled Euclidean beats.

This is part of our new video series where we take a closer look at the more unique and powerful features of Pamela's PRO Workout."

Future Retro Zillion 2014 - Triadex Muse Generative Sequencer

via this auction

"Based loosely on the infamous Triadex Muse; a shift register based musical instrument where faders represented different feedback loops into shift registers. What it leads to are literally zillions of musical patterns. It’s an amazing compositional tool for ambient, baroque and many synthesized music genres. Stuck on a lick and need a good melody? Use the Zillions and you’ll find endless musical possibilities."
