#jamuary2024 14 HWJ "Remix" (FOCUS ISSUE) of Noisevember 22 w/ GForce Axxess & Tenori on

video upload by SynthAddict

"Sorry I had a camera fixed focus issue and it's a bit fuzzy - no time to re-make the jam...

Unsure of what to remix, I grabbed some looper stems from my "all Osmose" Noisevember 22 video to mix live on Maschine+ and also added some other live bits:

- GForce Axxess synth
- Tenori-on factory drum kit in layer 16 live mode

It ran a bit long as I got carried away, but it generally repeats around 6:20...
The Axxess patch gives it a Vangelis vibe 🙂"

#jamuary2024 07 HWJ Image Inspiration '24

video upload by SynthAddict

"My first attempt was more literal, based on the sounds of stuff in the painting and the actual notes depicted in the painting, but it didn't work out.

This one is more of a period jam with acoustic instrument samples: hand perc, upright bass, harpsichord, flute, and strings. I added some arps and FX for more pizzazz. :-)"

Ambient Electronica Waldorf Iridium & Maschine +

video upload by Crybo Synth Sounds

"As usual the only way to use the Maschine + is in standalone! Not really but its the way I enjoy it the most. This time using it with the Waldorf Iridium. Lots of FX, 3 instances of Massive and 1 of Monark. There is a arp of Massive which took up a big chunk of CPU, did'nt want to re-sample it though. Re-sampling of the Iridium.

Soundpacks available for the Novation Peak, Korg Minilogue XD, Waldorf Iridium, Hydrasynth & UDO Super 6"

Hardware Jams Weekly Challenge - Secret Santa '23

video upload by SynthAddict

"Secret Santa for Steve Rutherford

As Steve is a drums/guitar/synth guy I tried to incorporate most of the elements he uses, but with my own spin.

I only had about 2 hours to make this from scratch in one take, so I apologize for the errors and lack of complexity. :-)

No time to edit or do any titles/visual adjustments..."

Depressive Silence - Forest of Eternity - Dungeon Synth Cover - Supernatural Darkness

video upload by Supernatural Darkness

"My absolute most listened to and favourite track in the Dungeon Synth genre. It took me some considerable time to learn by ear on guitar and arrange in Reaper DAW. It was performed with a combination of layered hardware and VST synths. Lead melodies are a combination of Juno 106 strings, Kontakt string ensemble, and Omnisphere layered OBX. My intention was not to copy the keyboards used on the original (Korg N364 and Yamaha PSS 1700 apparently) but use a combination of what I have available to achieve something as melancholic and dreamy as the original. The piece is F minor throughout slightly flattened probably from the tape speed. For ease of performance I transposed my keyboards to F# minor."

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge -- 180 BPM (pseudo punk/speed metal)

video upload by SynthAddict

via supporting member, SynthAddit: "It has some synthy bits, but there is not a single guitar loop or real drum played on it (my guitar playing stinks). The Kontakt guitar and drum libs have some great elements in the samples

that sound pretty legitimate when played a certain way on the pads, especially the guitars with some added live 'string bending' with the M+ pitch ribbon - some luck there for sure. :-) "

Soniccouture Releases AC-DR: Acoustic Drum Machine For Kontakt Player NKS

AC-DR: Acoustic Drum Machine | Kit Preview

via Soniccouture

"€149 | $149

Intro Offer: 30% OFF Until December 29th 2023

Soniccouture wanted to make an old school-style drum machine.

But they wanted to do it with 21st century sampling techniques: round-robin samples, multi-channel sounds, generative sequencers.

Years in the making - the idea started life as a kind of reverse follow-up to Soniccouture’s Electro-Acoustic: 'let's make acoustic drums sound electronic'. But, it took them quite lot of experimentation and head-scratching to figure out exactly what that might look - and sound - like.

Now it’s ready - check it out!"

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge: Classic Banger

video upload by

"A very loosely inspired jam from Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C# Minor

I mixed up a few moments from the piece and went way off in my own direction. Not a banger per se, but lots of perc. :-)"

Spiral Strings is a two-layer instrument with 8 play styles to choose from, a modulation matrix, 3 effects per layer, and - we take special pride in successfully incorporating a true stereo convolution reverb.

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge: Heavenly Pads and Hellish Drums (Noisevember 06)

video upload by SynthAddict

"Maschine+ of course :-)

Crunchy distorted and FM-tweaked loud drums, etc. mixed with pretty yet sad pads and leads…

***Oops, I just remembered I had an ARP section that wasn't even finished or implemented - I may add it and do a rev 2 version later. :-) The partial ARP version was muted the whole time.
Making stuff last-minute and in a rush is always risky. :-P"
