Detachment 3 Archangel Black And Red

via this auction

"A rare bird, and one of the most musical sequencers in all of 5u. Four rows of voltages per addressable stage, with keyboard controller and an amazingly flexible quantizer. Very few have been made so far, perhaps only 50, so this is an unusual chance to own one of these extremely cool little things.

It outputs normal modular 1v/octave and can be used with large format MU/Moog/MOTM or Eurorack as well -- just get some big jack to tiny jack cables and you're ready to go."

Detachement 3 Spinner - Stereo Ring Mod Based on the Yamaha CS80 Spotted at NAMM

via @experimentalsynth

"#namm2017 stereo ring mod based on CS-80 design"

Cool that they kept the CS80 font and design cues. It almost looks like it was pulled from the front panel of CS-80.

Patchwerks Seattle Synth Meet August 2016 Pics

Patchwerks Seattle Synth Meet August 2016

Above are a few pics I took at the event. It's a Flickr slide show, so mouse over for the controls. As always it was a great event filled with synth enthusiasts. Huge thanks to Patchwerks and Melrose Market Studios for hosting.

Some highlights this time around included some great talks from MØFFENZEEF Modular, Syntegrator representing KiwiTechnics & Vyzor, and Korg. Also present were Scott Jaeger of Industrial Music Electronics, Joe Grisso of Detachment 3 Engineering & STG, with an Archangel sequencer and expander and 5U system, George Mattson of Mattson Mini Modular, Synthrotek and DinSync. On the hardware front, aside from various eurorack and 5U systems, there was a small Bugbrand modular, a new Minimoog Model D, Mother 32 & a Brother From Another Mother, a DSI Prophet 12, an EML 100, MFB Dominion 1, and more as you can see in the pics. A cool surprise was that Theremin World was also present. The best part of events like these of course are meeting likeminded people, familiar faces, and people you only knew online prior to the event. To everyone I met that complimented my work on the site, thank you for the support! It is appreciated.

Be sure to see the Patchwerks channel for previous posts for this event as well as the one back in April.

STG Soundlabs / Archangel modular jam

"Just a simple one-track live jam. A decent amount of sound considering it's a single mono track with only two oscillators.

Patch info: FutureRetro XS VCOs 1 & 2 into STG mixer; VCO1 also sent to STG Pulse Matrix which is producing an additional PWM waveform and sub-octave into the mixer. Remaining mixer channel is a feedback loop from the FR XS (creates resonant stabs when turned up). The mixer output goes through an STG Post-Lawsuit Lowpass filter, and then back into the FR XS external input, where the mixed signal is acted on by the XS filter (resonant highpass) / VCA / envelopes.
The Post-Lawsuit filter is being modulated by one row of the Archangel sequencer/touch keyboard, and by the XS filter envelope... another row of the Archangel sequencer is creating the melody on XS VCO2, while the touch keyboard is transposing everything between two keys (which I am playing live and intermittently forget to change keys). Gate pattern is provided by STG Soundlabs Trigger Sequencer. Delay & verb are plug-ins; Bitwig native delay and TSAR-1 reverb.
Drum loop is Roland TR-8, which I was ignoring in the background... it's recorded separately so the take isn't ruined. ;)"

French Robot Muzak

Published on Dec 25, 2013 Salz-Peter Zucker

"Got a bit oldschool, I suppose...

The main theme is done by the Club of the Knobs / Moon 569, 'staccato strings' by Zeroscillator / A-100, the robotsequence by E-340, both sequenced by the Archangel. The singing saw is played by the S-2000 as the the sub is, again both sequenced by rené. Percussion by the D-1000. Slightly Moisturized and strymoned. Just started the workout and did some fading on the mixer in the beginning and the end, the sequences are mixed by maths."
