Nord Stage 4 + RK008 + Analog Rytm = DAWless powerhouse!

video upload by Jeremy Parker

"So I recently picked up a Nord Stage 4 as an upgrade to my Electro 2 from 16 years ago, as my main compact gigging keyboard. What I didn't realize was how powerful the multitimbrality could be when paired with a sequencer, like the Retrokits RK008, which I'm borrowing from my good friend "Cowboy" Ben Alman for our @TheEntireRobot gigs. I fairly quickly set up the sounds on the Nord and then played in some quick parts for an A and B section into the RK008. I'm reserving tracks 1 and 3 on the RK008 for my MiniKorg and Moog Minitaur, once I get the MIDI hooked up for those, so that will be next. I used 6 layers on the Nord, but technically I could have done 7 if I split up the organ into two separate manuals, etc. Anyway, this is a promising rig!"

Techno From Scratch, Let's RUMBLE on the Digitakt

video upload by EZBOT

"We're about to embark on an exciting journey as we craft techno music entirely from scratch. Our creative arsenal includes the Octatrack MK2, Digitakt, Digitone, and Syntakt, all working in harmony to produce some mind-bending sounds.

What adds an extra layer of magic to our performance today is my newest Octatrack template "'Techno Performance Mixer 1.0.1,' the latest addition to my Patreon offerings and soon to be available on Ko-Fi. This performance template for the Octatrack not only provides master clocking, 8 bar auto-modulated effects, 8 bar loops, and many other features that will undoubtedly take our music to the next level.

Our journey begins with a rumbling foundation, achieved through a unique resampling technique. We'll also be diving into an intriguing side-chain ducking trick, which I shared with you all last week. It's going to be an immersive and educational experience, so let's get started and delve into the world of techno creation.

Get the NEW Ultimate Octatrack FX Template 1.1.3 and the NEW Ultimate Performance Mixer 2FF 1.1.6 here with continuous updates: and here if you want a one-time download: https://www/

RF Modular jam deep acid teck 123bpm

video upload by Radical Frequencies Modular

"Full of warmth and fat sound here as all the sounds pass through the RF transistor mixer ! Bassline is 2 oscillators from dpvco into mixer and then into SH VCF ! There are a lot of modulations into attack and decay using Lucky Voltages.
The hats are noise through the 12 db multi vcf and then into vca with decay control .
Kick and snare are separate analog modules also mixed through the transistor mixer.
Sequencer used is the Beatstep pro ."

Forget about Clocks there is only PHASE

video upload by Omri Cohen

"Here you can find the full walkthrough video together with many other exclusive videos and extra content -

This is a patch from scratch video with the Phase Driven Sequencers from the Phasors collection by HetrickCV. This whole collection is unique, and works differently than traditional sequences that work with clock signals. There's a lot to experiment with, that's for sure. What do you think about using phasors instead of clocks? Did you get the chance to experiment with this collection?

Here's the final patch from the video -

This is Thump One by Toybox Audio | haQ attaQ

video upload by Jakob Haq

"Thump One is a gritty, phat sounding AUv3 wavetable synthesizer for iOS, desktop and laptop systems. The synth has two engines, whereas one is focused on making heavy kick-like sounds and the other on stacked and detuned oscillators for a wide supersaw sound. Check it out!

via Toybox Audio

"Thump One is an easy to use music synthesiser plugin with a fun glitchy 'wavetable' engine and a bank of flexible multi-segment envelopes to shape the sound in any direction you desire. Perfect for powerful kick drums, huge club basses and soaring leads.

The synthesiser features two powerful engines that can be layered together for a variety of complex sounds and textures. The ‘Kick’ engine features a great sounding 'wavetable' oscillator, with a set of wavetables created from a selection of clean and processed analog kick drum sounds. The ‘Kick’ engine has a high quality saturation and filtering circuit plus an additional 'Buzz' circuit to add a buzzy ‘broken speaker cone’ effect. The second engine, ‘Layer’ uses an accurate model of the 'supersaw' oscillator found in the Roland JP8000 synthesiser, this oscillator has a selection of operating ‘modes' that configure the oscillator to play in intervals and adds various amounts of cross-modulation to create noisy, retro synth sounds, fuzzy glitches or just plain noise."

AI012 Wave Animator by AI Synthesis | Full Walkthrough, Demo, and Patch Tips

video upload by Robots Are Red

See the announcement post here.

"This video takes a dive into the Wave Animator by AI Synthesis. This is an 8hp pulse harmonic generator. Depending on your input waveform you can get one or two additional pulses between each pulse of the oscillator. You can control the amplitude (positive or negative) of the second pulse, you can control the distance of that secondary pulse from the initial pulse, and you can control both pulses width together. Each modulator also has a cv input with attenuator.

This module is great for more evolving pulse width style effects, triggering flams, clocking swing, and just distorting the heck out of more organic inputs like strings or voice.
