Klang Stadt - Fumana - Magneto & More Eurorack

Published on Apr 9, 2020 isvisible isinvisible

"A drone from the Frequency Central 'Klang Stadt' filtered through the Frap Tools 'Fumana', which is having a few frequencies modulated by the Modcan 'Quad LFO' and the two LFO's in S&H mode from the Erica Synths 'Drum Sequencer'.

The ODD and EVEN outs from the 'Fumana' are feeding the Strymon 'Magneto'.

The ALL output from the 'Fumana' is feeding the Q-Bit 'Prism'.

An arpeggio from the Synthesis Technology E350 'Morphing Terrarium' fed through the Modcan 'Dual Delay' and the Doepfer 'A-101-3 Vactoral Phaser'.

Bass drum is the Mutable Instrument 'Peaks'. Snare is the Dave Smith 'DSM03 Feedback'. Added percussion is the Mutable 'Braids' in Cymbal mode feeding the Mutable 'Elements'.

Big low pad sound is the Sum output from the WMD 'PDO', the sub and saw out from the Livewire 'AFG' mixed then thrown through the ZVEX 'Instant Lo-Fi Junky' and a Tiptop 'Z-DSP' with the 'Halls of Valhalla' card installed."

Modular Synthesis with Richard Nicol and Steve Rightnour

Published on Feb 25, 2020 Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers

"Richard talks to eurorack pioneer Steve Rightnour. Join in on the discussion as we talk about the history of Livewire Synthesizers, Monorocket cases, and the early days of eurorack synthesis in America while mostly failing at producing a live YouTube stream. Feel free to ask questions in the live chat or just hang out."

Livewire FrequenSteiner Demo

Published on Nov 17, 2019 Roberto Raineri-Seith

I've tryed almost all 3U multimode filters and this one is by far my favorite in BP and HP mode, just amazing...
Filter in HP mode, feeded with 2 Analogue Systems RS95E oscillators both with saw waveform, signal modulated manually and by an LFO
Delay and reverb added (TC Electronics D-TWO and Lexicon PCM 80 'Deep space' preset)
Recorded with a Tascam DA-3000 high-end digital recorder"

Frequensteiner, WMD PDO and Soundmachines Lightstrips

Published on Jul 30, 2019 SchneidersLaden

Mike Brown's creations live on.

"In this short video we show that with just four modules and a small case it is possible to build an unusual percussion/sequencer box that is played via two Soundmachines LS1 Lightstrips. The Phase Displacement Oscillator gives us the possibility to create something like a repeating four step trigger sequence, when tuned down to LFO territory. These four events then ping the filter. In the end of the video there are also some filter-sweeps by the legendary Livewire Frequensteiner! We have added some effects to the main output."

Vulcan Modulator AND Mindmeld Companion Eurorack Modules

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"Livewire Vulcan Modulator with attached Intellijel Mindmeld companion Eurorack modules. Basically mint!

These are now-unavailable modules in very clean 100% working condition (obtained new from Analog Haven in 2010):

The Vulcan is a dual VC LFO (that can go fair way up into audio range) with individual multiple waveforms and mixed sum, diff etc outputs.

The Mindmeld is a companion module giving frontpanel access to switched (replacing the Vulcan's back-panel jumper options) waveform combos - also allowing you to inject an ext signal into each situation. Also inputs to reset the Vulcan wave periods.

This combo is a nice hands-on path to some exotic looped voltage contours."

Ambient Soundscape in C Minor

Published on Feb 13, 2019 theianboddy

"Improvising an ambient soundscape in C Minor.

Tip Top One has a sample of an ambient bed prepared on my Serge system.

I'm then mixing in some analogue Ring Mod FX from the Cwejman FSH1 & Livewire Dalek Modulator (sitting in the rack to the right).

The Make Noise DPO is providing the bass & the Mutable instruments Braids the higher notes.

These are being triggered via semi random gates from Marbles which are driving the Rene sequencer for the bass & the Pressure Points for the high notes. I'm also manually playing the Pressure points which is being quantised from an Intellijel uScale.

FX are courtesy of the Folktek Resonant Garden which is off camera."

Ian Fritz Bistromath and Livewire Audio Frequency Generator - Krautrock

Published on Sep 7, 2017 isvisible / isinvisible

Bass - PDO
Fuzzy tones etc - AFG (modulated by Bistromath)
Noise bursts - A-118
Bass drum - Orgone Accumulator
Snare drum - D-333

The Bistromath combines the Ian Fritz designed Threeler VCF, the ChaQuo and the Jerkster, and is an absolute beast.

For more music of the mainly finished variety: [melodic] [not as melodic] [a mixture of both]

Other things: [my website]"

Modular Synth - Koma Komplex + Circadian Rhythms Sequencers

Published on Mar 11, 2017 isvisible / isinvisible

"Here's me working on a new track. The main focus I guess is on the Tip Top Audio 'Circadian Rhythms' and the Koma 'Komplex' sequencers, and not forgetting the old workhorse, 'Pamela's Workout' by ALM. All of which work perfectly together.

Audio as follows:
Bass - WMD 'PDO'.
Plinky Plonk - Livewire 'AFG'.
A fairly passable lap steel guitar type sound - Mutable Instruments 'Rings'.
Percussion - Folktek 'Matter'."

Oscillate: Pittsburgh 2016

This one in via Mike of Oscillate: Pittsburgh:

"The 2nd Annual Oscillate Pittsburgh is this Saturday April 16 at 2PM at the Western Pennsylvania Center for the Arts, 300 James St, Verona, Pennsylvania 15147.

This event is held by and for modular synth enthusiasts of all kinds, and offers a little bit of everything*.  Meet and talk to a number of manufacturers, including Evaton Technologies, Pittsburgh Modular, Monorocket, Livewire, Zlob Modular, and Division 6. We will have live performances from 8CYLINDER, Tonsil, Russ from Evaton, Richard from Pittsburgh Modular performing with Steve from Monorocket, and anyone else that straggles in. There will also be plenty of time between sets where you can meet other people into Eurorack, 5U, standalone, and DIY synths.

There will be food for sale. Admission is free, however donations to the Western Pennsylvania Center for the Arts would certainly be welcome.

*I should mention that the mfrs. / performers are subject to change at any time, this event has been chaotic."
