How to use "Sooper Looper" on Zynthian for guitar looping

video upload by

"Here's the SooperLooper #looperpedal module built into the #Zynthian #raspberrypi #diysynth , used with a #guitar. The looper is treated as an effect, so you can include it in any part of your effects chain, routing (as shown in this video) a compressor into an amp model into the looper into a delay and reverb. As always, don't expect great guitar playing in this video. This is a tech demo first and foremost. Video doesn't need an index this time. #poorguitarplayingpimpedwithepicreverb"


Ambient using a Technics WSA1

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is ambient music with my Technics WSA1. While I am in progress to programm a bank of 64 amazing custom patches, I also start create the first song with it.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks, while a specially prepared track exported an run through a tasty chips electronics GR-1 for granular time streching. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and iZotope Ozone on the master track."

"I have some more bad news. My friend Barry Schmetter passed away earlier in the week. He died of a heart attack in his home. It's hitting me really hard so I just can't find the energy to sing a Sunday Song this week, but I will play a snippet from one of Barry's art installations."

Breaks and death jam with Elektron Octatrack MkII, Novation AFX Station

video upload by Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance of Edvard Grieg's "The Death of Åse" (from Peer Gynt) performed entirely on synths and sampler hardware.

I love this song in all its incarnations, on strings, on piano. So while on the island, I thought I'd try it on synths and samplers. I sequenced the main lines in the box, using Native Instruments' Noire (piano) and Arturia's Prophet V (synth) doubled up. Then I chopped that into segments and imported into the Octatrack.

Once in the Octatrack, I took the Amen break and did some mangling, adding some glitch, pan, and randomization. I also added a second break I created, and a line of weird percussion (from a Patreon community member), both from a community sample pack in my Patreon.

Finally, I wanted some real-time hardware synth, and was smart enough to bring the Novation AFX Station with me to the island. This thing has so much versatility going for it, sounds phenomenal, and has an absolutely stellar layout for creating. It's wild to me that the Bass Station II / AFX Station is both one of the best mono synths out there, while also being so widely available and so affordable.

Once it was all together, it was just a matter of tweaking some scenes for effects and transition, and then capturing the performance. Really happy with this one.

Thanks for listening.

'Arp & Drone' 2-Voice Melodic Eurorack performance (ambient, minimal, all analogue synth sounds)

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"A rather gentle 2-Voice, all-analog melodic performance using random arp mode on a Keystep Pro, whilst controlling a 2-note drone sound with the keyboard. This time a slightly simpler version of this recording: [below]

The system includes three Vintage Transistor Core VCOs and noise from the Glide + Noise module, which are split between the two filters of the Gemini 2412 dual multi-mode VCF. Two of the VCO sawtooth waves go to the Wave Swarm , which thickens them, creating the effect of many stacked saws (or supersaw) buzzing as their waveform timings collide. This makes an excellent basis for drone sounds, even from a single VCO.

Other important modules here are the Tap Tempo Voltage-controlled LFO, which is clocked by the arp (gate out to clock in), and modulates/varies the frequency of the filter on each new arpeggio note, creating more movement. Also the Ring SM adds a -1 sub-octave to the single VCO of the arpeggio, and mixes in some white noise, fattening the sound hugely.

The AJH SYNTH Eurorack range consists of high-end modules, all hand-made in the UK, most of which are based on classic, vintage designs, authentically recreating the circuitry of much sought-after analogue instruments and technologies of the past, whilst greatly expanding them, and bringing them to modern Eurorack levels of convenience, limitless flexibility, and reliability.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

'Not moving on' - Mellow, Melodic Eurorack Performance (AJH Synth MiniMod & Gemini 2412)
video upload by DreamsOfWires

"Melodic real-time performance using 2 modular analogue synth voices, a work-in-progress version for this album: [posted here w/ video]

This track makes particular use of the Gemini VCF as two seperate filters - the melodic part (an arpeggio from the Keystep in random mode) consists of either the Entropic Doom (alone as a pitched noise VCO, sometimes with a regular VCO mixed into it's audio input, or used as a sync source), or just the standard VCO through the Ring SM (where additional octaves are added). The output of both the Entropic Doom and the Ring SM go to independent filters on the Gemini, Low Pass and Band Pass respectively. Then, the keyboard/sequencer gate from the Keystep triggers the Sample & Hold module, which modulates the mix between the output of these two filters using the Gemini's built-in voltage controlled mixer/cross-fader. I'm also using the CV Mix module to set the modulation level, range, and start/end positions.
The drone sound is two VCOs going through the Wave Swarm to the Ladder Filter, at certain points I manually shift the pitch of one of the VCOs using the Precision Voltages module, via the Glide module (up only). Recorded into AUM on an iPad with EOS2 reverb.
Added video footage is of the North Norfolk Railway, then the Mid Norfolk Railway, UK (before 'lockdown')."

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"Serious synthesizer designed for the musician/performer. In fantastic working and cosmetic condition overall. Includes compact flash card and power supply.

The general concept behind the Solaris synthesizer is to implement something like a giant wall-sized modular system entirely in software where you can select among several completely different types of oscillators and filters, exquisitely modelled after the components culled from a variety of legendary vintage synthesizers of yesteryear and even some current virtual analog innovations of today. With up to four oscillators, four filters, four amplifiers, four four-input mixers, six envelope generators, one looping envelope generator, five LFOs, two vector mixers and still more of these software modules available in each program, the Solaris synthesizer becomes absolutely unrivalled in terms of versatility and programmability."

A new PSU, new display, a new set of switches were among my priorities leaving this with my tech.

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"This is the archetype of an exotic module. It looks amazing, but it sounds eh... - different - and you may need to be creative to make it sound cool in a patch. I am not sure I succeeded and if it's a keeper. You could find one on a fair or used gear website, so it's always good to have a rough idea of what you're about to buy. It will be love at first audit for noise music, It will serve you well in sound design and maybe even industrial music, but it may be a bit too experimental."
