Formanta Maestro Mods Mk.1

video upload by Faustola

"Sorry about some digital distortion in the beginning, I didn´t pay attention to metering that much. I implented some mods to the great Formanta Maestro, and here is a small demonstration of those. I´m planning to add one more mod, but I need to plan it a bit more."

DSI Prophet 08 | The other side of dreams | An ambient soundscape

video upload by MIDERA

"I think I'm convinced that the Prophet 08 is the best DSI synth. I didn't really care for the OB6 myself and haven't played the P6 or Trigon 6, so I can't say anything about them. The P12 just is very tame, while the Poly Evolver, as interesting as is it, just doesn't have something the P08 has, besides missing 4 voices. The PE is very hard to use because each oscillator is spread to L/R channels and when you mix them to center, the special stereo sound goes away. Since the sequencer only works as steps, not in a range of values, it ends up not being that great IMO.

The Prophet 5/10, is a much better synth though, so don't take this to think I like the P08 more, but I think it's equally special and sounds phenomenal. I gotta say though, I think the P08 is just fantastic and goes into really crazy territory very easily.

So the question I will be asking myself is... do I need the P12 and PE? Surely people would say to keep them, and the Polaris... but I have so many synths. These seem like they were supposed to do what I love about the P08, but don't.

Strymon Volante used for delay and Eventide Blackhole used for reverb."

"Saw wave pad with some partial ring modulation. Ran in parallel through a Microcosm pedal for some added texture.

"Playing CHASE BLISS HABIT for the first time after having read
the initial chapter of the manual. All DIP switches OFF and in the beginning only playing with the two delays and repeat rate.
In order to give the sound a bit more with and livelyness I processed the HABIT signal thru the RUBBERNCK which is faded in in the beginning resulting in a very nice stereo image.
The DOD RUBBERNECK is panned to the LEFT and HABIT's mono only signal to RIGHT."

MOLOSS II by Arthelion - Multi Oscillator Linear Open Source Synthesizer

video upload by steve webb

via Arthelion

"MOLOSS is a virtual synth, available as a VST plugin or standandalone exe, to build analog vintage sounds by combining several techniques used in the 80's.

Its 4 voices mix Subtractive synthesis, additive synthesis, frequency (or actually phase) modulation, cross modulation, to allow a very wide sound range, with a lightweight CPU load.

It has a default polyphony of 64 notes, and 2 mono "solo" modes.

A lot of parameters can be modulated with controllers, to give the best live expressivity.

It has a full embedded file-based preset management.

The new version II brings many stability fixes, and an attractive new design by Lozzec with a considerable improvement in usability."

"Here’s some more Wersimatic CX1 for you - a hella stylish auto accompaniment unit made in Germany when the going was good - the early 80s.

The machine looks like a obsolete computer terminal and sports 4 sections :

Analog Drum machine
Bass section
Chord section
Arpeggiator section

We modded this one quite a bit - with separate volumes and outputs for the bass, chords, strings and of course the drum section.
We're routing the separate outs to a ton of different effects:
The Compact Phaser effect is an odd one - it could be a Vermona prototype - it sounds like the Vermona Phaser and looks very nice and stylish for a one off.
It's sitting next to the Compact Schulte Phaser and you can see the resemblance in design."

Modular Percussion: Rings, Elements and Stolperbeats

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Super excited to be part of Dutch Modular Fest @dutchmodularfest4609 today - a super nice one day modular meet in Utrecht NL with workshops, lots of great synth makers and concerts. We will be showing our #Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer and a handful of rare unreleased prototypes.

If you've been eyeing one of our Eurorack DIY kits and you want to build it together with us, today is the perfect opportunity! Hang out with us and build a Farbfolder, Farbshaper, Farbhighpass or TausenddB and Multiplikand with us.

Our friends Stijn and Priscilla from TiNRS @thisisnotrocketscience3942 will be showing their awesome new collaborations with Paul Error Instruments@paultasbeeb: Brinta, a lovely granular module for live recording and processing audio, and White Rabbit, a fantastic reverb and delay ranging from etheral to glitchy.

Lauri @vaski will show off his beautiful new 2HP Lights Stereo Visualizer audio visualisation module and a handful of other incredibly clever utilities like the ECS-4 Triggered Switch and his AM-3/3 Triple Attenuverter Matrix.

We've been playing with prototypes of these modules for a while and it's super exciting to see them being released now!

Today's video is a little jam that happened when packing for Dutch Modular Fest. Stolperbeats is seen here sequencing Mutable Instruments awesome physical modelling synths #Elements as well as #Rings through their Streams dual dynamics gate with percussion from our own secret modular drum prototype.

The reverb in this sketch is @Befacosynth Lich, a great programmable multi-function module based on the @RebelTechnologies OWL platform. If you are into PureData, Max or Faust, you should give this one a whirl!
