VIVALDI - Summer Part 2 on SIX Arp ODYSSEYS

video upload by Richard Payne

Part 1 here

"Summer Part 2 (side B?) is great. Lovely melody. Nice and slow. There's a musical term for that tempo. Al Dente I think.

Added a little more filth from the Odysseys here. There's a nice fuzzy / crackly sound you can get from sending white noise from the sample & hold section to the filter. I chucked some of that on and a bit more white noise on the noisey bits.

As before. I grabbed hold of the score, whittled it down into 6 tracks for the Odysseys and programmed the MIDI into Ableton. Well, 5 tracks really. The Odyssey FS on it's side is doing the Doof.

Ableton is spitting out MIDI to the six Odysseys here over USB and I'm fidgeting around with them and recording the audio back into Ableton. I added a bit of Reverb and EQ from Ableton and there you have it. Filmed on my iPhone.

Boom! So Part 3 is up next and that's a flippin' doozie! Giddyup!!"

Synth Color Tracking With Musikraken & AugenX

video upload by

"Experimenting with the recently added color distance tracking in #musikraken app, which determines the relative distance between two tracked objects, optionally in both x and y position. I’m using it here controlling #augenx synth app for triggering and modulating synth parameters. Tracking is done with an iPhoneSE acting as external midi BLE device, sending the created midi data to a nearby iPad running AugenX."

Dawless + Ableton (Hybrid) Synthesizer & Drum Machine Sequencing Setup - Schematics with Explanation

video upload by Mutt Retro

"This video is an explanation of my hybrid studio setup. I do dawless sequencing and Ableton Live sequencing (Push2) with synthesizers and drum machines. I get many questions so I wanted to share my setup so others can learn and pass it on. Every setup is different so this is just an example to help others build their system / process.

Moog One, Prophet 5, Kronos, Space Echoes and a Fostex R8

video upload by Guido Scognamiglio

"I call this song 'Project #7', inspired by some Sci-fi shows that I like.
Instruments used:
- Korg Kronos: drum and bass on tracks 1 & 2
- Moog One: the pad sound on track 3
- Prophet 5: all other sounds on tracks 4, 5, 6 and 7
Only tracks 1 & 2 processed by a Drawmer DL-241, all other tracks have no compressor and no EQ.
Effects are only the Roland Space Echo RE-201 and the Chorus Echo RE-501 for all tracks except 1 & 2.
Track 8 is the SMPTE signal but is unused.

The Fostex R8 is a lovely tape machine..."

Mixer or audio daisy chain? (Synth improv on Roland Aira S-1, T-8, JX-08 etc.)

video upload by

"Earlier today I wondered if there is any perceivable difference between using a tiny mixer or an audio daisy chain in a tiny synth setup. So here's a real world test using the #Roland JX-08, Roland #Aira T-8 and S-1, plus Yamaha #Reface DX with Strymon NightSky. Somewhere in the middle, the audio hard switches from A to B. Notice any differences?


Octatrack Private Lessons Revealed: Sample Mangling For Beginners

video upload by EZBOT

"This is an abbreviated online lesson on the Elektron Octatrack. The original session was cut down from over an hour to just under 28 minutes. If it seems fast, that's because it is. The student asked to be shown how to mangle samples on the Octatrack as well as learn about the machine in general from a new users standpoint- a where to start and what what's important type of session. This video is aimed at beginners but is packed with intermediate to advanced knowledge on the Octatrack and samplers in general.

Wingie2: New alternate tuning features in firmware v3.1

video upload by Dave Seidel

"Meng Qi's Wingie2 resonator is a unique musical device with many uses. As a user of microtonal tunings, I decided to try to add some microtonal abilities to the firmware, which is open source. I am happy to say that Meng has accepted my work, and it will be part of the v3.1 firmware release.

This video is meant to provide an overview of the new features, including details on usage, and a couple of demos. I hope you find it helpful, despite my primitive video skills. For more information, including details of each tuning and a ToushOSC template for switching between tunings, please go to

"Alan from After Later Audio plays the bass drum from mosaic and resonate from after later audio as a touring machine, this signal is filtered with night rider from ryk and the mimeophone is used as an effect. Pique from after later is used as a drum voice and is controlled by 0-ctrl from make noise. disting mk4 by expert sleepers runs with shift register quantized CVs and plays acid rain's chainsaw. this signal runs through the roucha legio and yester version from noise engineering. maths and wogglebug play a little too.
Hope you like this video! Comments welcome!"

7 patch ideas for Joranalogue Delay 1, from chorus to kick drums

video upload by Tom Churchill

"This video is about Delay 1, which Joranalogue very kindly sent over from Belgium for me to check out.

It’s a super-high-quality analogue BBD design that specialises in very short delays, from 1 to 50 milliseconds. This turns it into something much more interesting than a conventional delay or echo effect, as well as opening up possibilities for Karplus-Strong synthesis.

In this video, I build some patches that explore the musical applications of Delay 1, from stereo chorus and comb filter to melodic voice and kick drum generator."
