MuSONICS VANILLA Vintage-Inspired Modular Synthesizer Demo 🌌 #KNOBCON 2023 🌆

video upload by Vulture Culture

"Matt was kind enough to show me Vanilla, the brand-new Modular Synthesizer which pays tribute to some of the greatest vintage synthesizers of all time. Of all of the synths I heard at Knobcon this one was the juiciest with the smoothest resonance."

The Room Outside Of Time 2

video upload by John L Rice

"A quick one I should have spent more time on, and also should NOT have spent ANY time on, but I wanted to record a bit of it for the memories! 😅

Unlike a lot of my recent complex sequencer experiments this one only uses 5 steps of a single row of one Moon 569 sequencer! The CV out is patched into a Synth Tech E102 Quad Temporal Shifter (shift register) and the 4 outputs go to 4 voices, each consisting of a MOTM-300 VCO, saw out to a Happy Nerding FM AID, to a Moon 517 VCF and finally to a Oakley Dual VCA. VCF and VCA modulation was from a Club Of The Knobs C911P poly EG and the FM AIDs and VCFs got additional modulation from a Krisp1 OCTO LFO. Effects are from the usual Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals and Lexicon MX400 rack. I used the Roland A-88 keyboard to transpose the sequence via a MOTM-650 module and the bassy-lead was played on an Expressive E Osmose keyboard."

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"

A History of by Creator Roger Arrick Himself

Roger Arrick, the founder of, wrote a history of his business. It's a fascinating look at the inception of one of the first modular makers of the new gaurd. You can find the full the full article on his website here. The following are just a few excerpts. I included an interesting bit on an almost stolen system.

End of chain drum effects

video upload by John Schussler

"I recently got the ADDAC Vintage Clip, and have been playing with it as an end of chain drum mix treatment. I have a few other simple stereo distortions and filters and figured I'd listen to them as a group and see which I liked best in the role of 'final drum effect.'

It's not so much a fair comparison as...just a comparison. There are lots of other modules that could probably serve this purpose just as well, but these are what I have and wanted to listen to. So there you go.


Drums are an SSF Ultra Kick, Prok SN, Prok HH, and WMD Chimera. Sequencer is an Iron Ether Pithoprakta.

The Room Outside Of Time

video upload by John L Rice

"Similar to several of the recent sequencer demos I've posted, but different.

The 569 sequencer is again in 2x16 mode and using the same tuning as the last few videos. The difference this time is I patched two gate outputs from the 569EGB rows 1 and 2 into the two 564 sequential switches and then patched all 8 outputs, 4 each, from the 564 switches into rows 1 and 2 of the 569ES. The 564 switches are shifted by the 554 Octal Clock divider, which is normal'd to the Corsynth C102 LFO which is the master clock and also is shifting the 569.

The sequenced voice is a single Martin Jan Koehler VCO, the Tidal Modulator, which is a 5U version of Mutable Instruments Tides module. All four outputs get voiced separately but at the same time with 1/2 of a Moon 517 VCF, 1/2 of an Oakely Dual VCA, and 1/5 of a Club Of The Knobs C911P poly EG. Each voice goes to a separate input of the Allen & Heath MixWizard and panned evenly across the stereo field. A Krisp1 OCTO LFO modulates 4 of the Tidal Modulator's parameters.

The solo voice is a Roland Integra7 played via a Roland A-88 keyboard.

Effects used are the usual Strymon BigSky and Timeline pedals and the Lexicon MX400."
