Happy 303 day: Ambient Dub Techno Jam with 7x 303s

video upload by Honeysmack

"Happy 3.03 day! What better way to celebrate than try something completely ridiculous and play 7x 303 at the same time? I was up for the challenge! While it might seem fairly easy, it actually did my head in for a while. I had to think about how to make this interesting, rather than have a stupid cacophony of acid bashing our ears. So I opted for the downtempo ambient dub like sound. In simple terms space the 303s out and give them room socially. Here it is and after the jam I provide some short commentary on my approach and how it was recorded. The jam was recorded in one single take, no additional sounds or post production. Please let me know what you think, am I crazy?

Small Systems Patches #1 - Drone, Delay & Feedback

video by Abstract Data

"The first, in what will hopefully be, an ongoing series of jams based around small modular systems. This drone, delay and feedback patch takes three different waveform outputs from a single VCO and feeds them into a combination of filters and wave folders. These signals are mixed together and then split into two separate channels where one is the output signal and the other is used as a feedback path running via delay and reverb and then fed back into the mix. These modules are then modulated using combinations of LFO and looped S&H.

You can check out the rig for this patch here:​

Modules used (from L to R): Abstract Data ADE-32 Octocontoller; ADE-33 Event Boss; ADE-60 4:4 Mix Utility; ADE-50 3x VCA; / Intellijel Dixie II; uFold; uVCF; / Audio Damage Dub Jr MK2; / 2HP Verb; / Doepfer A-18-2 Multiple.

Case: 4MS 64X Pod; / Sequencer: Arturia BeatStep Pro; / Additional delay and reverb from Source Audio Collider.

Patch was recorded to a Tascam DR-05 recorder and mixed in Logic Pro X."

Modular Monthly: Abstract Data ADE 33 Event Boss

Published on Jul 17, 2019 Future Music Magazine

"Abstract Data firmly placed themselves on the map with the quick and simple clocking, pattern generation, tempo synced (or not) modulation of the ADE-32 Octocontroller. The ADE-33 Event Boss is the Octocontroller’s most trusted partner in crime – if the crime is quick, fun, interactive and CV controllable rhythm generation that is."

MAKE LOGIC GREAT AGAIN // Manipulating interactive rhythms with the Event Boss from Abstract Data

Published on Jun 6, 2019 DivKidVideo

"Hello, here's a video with the Abstract Data ADE-33 Event Boss on making logic fun and useful for making beats and patterns within a Eurorack modular system. You don't need to understand every type of logic boolean or otherwise to start using logic to make beats and patterns out of clocks and other rhythmic gate/trigger sources. This is also just a very quick look at one of the 6 modes on the Event Boss with more to come from the Future Music magazine video soon."

"Analog synth & sound effects generator

Whether you're a musician, producer, sound designer or DJ - all the best of analog fatness & warmth can now be yours. At the heart of Synthex is a true Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with Square & Triangle Waveforms - but that really is just the start.

Two audio inputs for massive Hard Sync & FM effects, dedicated control of Mix and Levels, signal path reconfiguration at the flick of a switch and a world of pure analog bliss.

Bored of lame, thin-sounding soft synths? Need a sound that is truly your own? Synthex is your synth."

Superbooth 2018 - Abstract Data Event Boss, Octocontroller Updates, New Filter, Logic Boss & VCO

Published on May 4, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Justin from Abstract Data always has a great patch set up and a tonne of interactive modular action going on for rhythms, beats, basslines and modulation in not much space. We go through the upcoming new firmware for the ADE-32 Octocontroller, ADE-33 Event Boss which is a fantastic device for taking clocks and making patterns or taking patterns and making variations on patterns and then there's the new filter, logic boss and wave shaping VCO which sounds fantastic (I was lucky enough to test and early version).

New ADE-33 Event Boss Eurorack Module From Abstract Data

Published on Mar 22, 2018 abstractdatabiz

"30 second overview covering the main features and functionality of the Abstract Data ADE-33 Event Boss.

The ADE-33 is a pattern and rhythm creation and manipulation module.

It has 36 algorithms in 6 sets covering Variables, Multiples, Probability, Logic, Phase and Gates with configurable CV control over all parameters."

"Abstract Data is very pleased to announce the launch of our debut rhythm and pattern creation module - the ADE-33 Event Boss.

The ADE-33 combines 6 sets of algorithms - with 36 algorithms in total - covering:

* Variables: Rhythmic patterns and circadian-style rhythms
* Multiples: Clock and LFO multiplication and division by factors from 1-12
* Probability: Pseudo-random, probability and chance-based variations
* Logic: Classic logic-based functionality
* Phase: Phase shifting, time-based delays and swing-style effects
* Gates: Trigger, pulse and gate manipulation and generation

The Event Boss is designed to work with any clock, gate, trigger, square wave or PWM-type LFO input. It will take regular clocks and generate rhythms, it will take rhythmic patterns and generate new patterns and it will take irregular and random clocks and generate new, irregular and probability-based patterns and variations.

There is CV control over every parameter so patterns can be rhythmic, continually evolving, entirely random or pretty much any combination the user chooses.

Of course, it can also be used as a utility module to perform various clock division/multiplication, phase-shifting and logic-related tasks. However, it is at its most creative when used as a real-time pattern generator for creating musically useful rhythms and patterns from simple clock, rhythm and CV inputs.

The ADE-33 Event Boss is on sale now for GBP199.00 and can be bought directly from Abstract Data or our international dealers. Please talk to your local Eurorack dealer about availability."

Free Synth Event at The Birmingham and Midland Institute This Weekend

Free electronic music event in Brum this Saturday

Published on Mar 1, 2018 mylarmelodies

"In this episode we meet Justin Owen of Abstract Data, who I would describe as a perfect example of the modern Eurorack 'pioneer' - a one-person company with no formal training, completely self-taught - yet able to make, sell and support fantastic gear, and (just about!) make a living doing it. How does someone actually DO that??

Well, in this episode, we sit down to talk all this and more. We talk about the impact of Punk, and early Orbital in his music formation, growing up in a suburb of Sydney, on the design process and bugbears on trends in Eurorack product design, on putting the character and vibe back into VCAs, and surviving as a manufacturer in a crowded market.

And we end talking about his music making process - how he uses a modular as part of music making...WITHOUT getting distracted. And how do you do that? Best sit in and get listening..."
