Huge Sounding Electronic Jam: Octatrack With Sequential Pro 3

video upload by Tasty Vintage Jam

"Hey everyone! I've been diving deep into the world of the Octatrack MKII lately. For my fellow synth enthusiasts, you know the reputation it carries-it's powerful yet quite the puzzle to figure out. And for those of you who just love good electronic music? Well, I paired it with the Pro 3, and the sound they produce together is something special. The two not only create some mesmerizing tunes, but they look stylish next to each other, too.

A lot of the music in this video was spontaneous, a blend of careful craft and freestyle jamming. Whether you're here for the technical side of things or just to enjoy some fresh beats, I genuinely hope you find something to love. Your thoughts mean the world to me, so drop a comment and let me know how it resonates with you. Thanks for tuning in and enjoy the sounds!

Five Favorite Things about the Udo Super 6 Binaural Hybrid Synthesizer with @SlowHaste

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"UDO's Super 6 is a hybrid twelve-voice polysynth with a fully binaural signal path, perfect for creating everything from classic pads and synth key sounds to rich, swarming stereo textures. Using FPGA-based oscillators, an analog filter section, analog VCA section, and 192kHz, 24-bit effects, the Super 6's voice architecture alone is uncommonly powerful and clean. Combined with an intense and well-considered modulation section, Fatar keybed with velocity and aftertouch, and an integrated arpeggiator and sequencer, the Super 6 feels like we're back in the early 1980s imagining what the future of synthesizers would be like.

In this video, our pal @SlowHaste takes on the Super 6—offering personal opinions and plenty of tips + tricks. If you've been thinking about getting a Super 6 of your own...get ready to dig in.

Test after moving the Noise Engineering BIM VCO into this folding modular case. I like it!

video upload by John L Rice

"The gate out of the SSL The Matrix sequencer is patched to the SSL/YuSynth clock divider with one output going to the Basimilus Iteritas Magnus and the other two outputs triggering State FX Dual Trigger Processor (5U Mutable Instruments Peaks) envelopes that are modulating the audio out of The Matrix via a Happy Nerding Fun VCF and Grove Audio quad VCA. (the audio out of the Matrix also goes to the quad VCA and its level is just manually controlled) All four outputs of the Martin Jan Koehler Tidal Modulator (5U Mutable Instruments Tides) go to a Moon Modular 525 quandary attenuator and then to various inputs of the Noise Engineering BIM to vary the sound. #modularsynth #sequencer #electronicmusic"

Oberheim Matrix 12 61-Key 12-Voice Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is a USA-built Matrix-12. This is mainly of interest because if the display ever fails, there is a replacement kit for the USA-built version. Some Matrix-12's or Xpanders (the non-keyboard 6-voice version) were built in Japan, with a different board design, for which there is no display replacement that I know of.

The Matrix-12 was available with a optional pressure-sensing keyboard, but this one doesn't have it.

The power section works on all voltages worldwide (90-130VAC, switchable to 190-260, 50-60Hz).

The unit had one fault I was aware of: one voice's filter did not pass the self-tune. I had this repaired by Hayashi-san at Symplex in March 2023. As outlined on the receipt shown, he diagnosed the replacement of the voice 10 filter chip (3372, shown; I will include the original bad chip in the purchase). Finally, he did a complete test, and found some more work to do: he cleaned the bend and mod wheels, volume pot, six encoders, eight switches, and upgraded to the latest v1.6 ROMs. The unit now always passes all five self-tune tests as shown on the display quickly, even immediately after turning on."

ARP Odissey MK1 “Whiteface” 1973 - W./MIDI+CV+FILTER IN

via this auction

"Original 1973 ARP ODISSEY in mint condition. Includes MIDI, CV and audio inputs to use the filter independently. The Whiteface model features the 4023 filter, which is much thicker than later models like the MK2 and MK3 (the orange and black models). It's a good opportunity to get a real museum piece and part of the history of analogue synthesizers, without losing the functionality to squeeze it into your studio today."

Blush Response - live at SUPERBOOTH23

video upload by Superbooth Berlin

"Blush Response is the vehicle for Cuban/American musician Joey Blush's research into the sonic dimension. Reports occur at sporadic intervals, usually in concurrence with the discovery of new planes of existence. Born in Miami, and now stationed in Berlin, Blush has brought his sound experiments to a worldwide audience. He has toured around the world as a solo artist, and as a member of groups such as Scar the Martyr and Front Line Assembly.

He is also a renowned sound designer, having done work for companies like Elektron, Yamaha, Arturia, and programming on records from Fear Factory, Cristian Castro, and many more. Blush expresses his sound through deep meditation with his electronic instruments, focusing on the interaction between human and machine. He seeks to both influence and harness the unpredictability of complex electronic instrumentation, in an effort to create a direct expression of his emotions. This sonic ritualism is exemplified in his prolific reporting of fractalized audio sculpture.

This concert was presented by Nord Keyboards.

►New sounds by Jexus ►Creative patches of the ultra-versatile Hydrasynth.

video upload by

"Pros & cons: Exactly 3 years ago I released my first HS video, but it only showed around 40 sounds. Here's an update with more patches and a lot of new sounds, free for everyone who got the original preset pack.

No talking demo of ASM Hydrasynth. All sounds custom-made by Jexus. Patches / presets from this soundset work in KB, Desktop, Explorer and Deluxe models. You will receive all the sounds from all my 3 Youtube videos plus extra (256 in total). My patches come under the name "WCOG" in a soundpack / soundbank saved in Hydrasynth Manager format. I did not use any external FX in the demo; all the delays, reverbs, flangers, noises, crackles and other effects are part of the Hydrasynth engine / mod matrix. However, I used some EQ-ing on selected patches."

Vector Mixing with Planar 2 by Intellijel

video upload by Stazma

"Hey there folks! Here's another of those short patch video I like to do at the moment! This on is about another of my favorite patches (often those I show to my students when I teach modular synthesis).

This one is about using the Planar 2 to mix waveforms from your VCOs, even some already modified by other modules such as filters or wavefolder, in order to create sort of 'morphing', wavetable like, sounds, while remaining in the analog realm.

Have fun watching!"

XPO Tutorials | Episode 04 | Exotic woodwind & pipes

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"This video is about XPO and Maths, but it may work with any VCO that supports a bit of waveshaping and linear FM. Maths plays a crucial role, so without Maths (or equivalent) it's near impossible to pull this off.

It's always fun to make a new video, but this one was more than fun. I've been patching a bit yesterday, no goal in mind, and suddenly came up with a sound that reminded me of a bagpipe. I explored it this morning, googled the typical scale used and recorded in one go. It felt great to make some 'traditional' music on the modular instead of the usual weird bleeps and bloops.

The 'secret' of this video is a) using the XPO's LIN-FM input while overriding the default sub oscillator with something more subtle like the sine or the triangle and b) creatively using the Maths channels to 'sculpt' pitch movement, attenuate it so it's really modest, and then patch the sum of all modulation into the LIN-FM. It's not difficult, but it will take time to find something convincing. However, it will be easy to find something really exotic, weird and fun."
