Labyrinth introduces a classic West Coast sound into the Mother Ecosystem experience rich analog synthesizer history in both surprising and recognizable sonic textures. Two generative sequencers bring to life sounds that bloom over time, letting you control their evolution and scale, then play them off of each other for striking polymetric melodies.

With parallel analog signal paths, this adventurous instrument shines when adding color to the steady backdrop of a drum pattern or bassline.

The beating heart of Labyrinth is a robust dual sequencer, which uses chance calculations to generate two unique eight-step paths which twist and curve around one another.

A parallel voice processing path with a voltage-controlled blending allows you to morph sounds over time.

A fresh interpretation of the Moog sound via a voltage-controlled wavefolder. Two oscillators drive duophonic melodic counterpoints, metallic FM tones, and analog synthetic drums.

Moog's semi-modular lineup expands to include the Labyrinth, a generative synthesizer that brings you two parallel sequencers, two oscillators, and endless possibilities. Based around a core sine VCO and a triangle Mod VCO, these sound sources have independent level controls, as well as a Ring Mod and Noise level control that all feed a saturating mixer that can add a touch or grit. From the mixer, we have the switchable option to go into a voltage controllable wave folder then into a classic Moog filter, the opposite with our filter going into the wave folder, or have both of these run in parallel.

The heart of the Labyrinth is the sequencer section. A dual 8-step sequencer gives you interactive quantized melodies that can affect various parameters, based on the labeled trimmers. These sequencers send out both notes CV and triggers and with a Trig Mix you can get rhythmic interplay that is quite satisfying. Each sequencer has a Length settings and a Bit Shift when adjusts the position of activated steps. The Bit Flip and Corrupt parameters present gives you more randomness and serendipity allowing you to create evolving patterns.

As with all of their semi-modular synths, Moog gives you access to 32 patch point patchbay with 12 outputs and 20 inputs. This gives you the option to self-patch and integrate it into your existing Eurorack ecosystem. Moog's Labyrinth is the perfect expansion to your existing system or a great starting point as an entry to modular synthesis, especially for those who are looking to get expressive rhythmic patterns quickly.

3. Layering tones with LIVEN Ambient Ø

Press release follows:

Soundscape Synthesizer LIVEN Ambient Ø Immersive Ambient Generator

4 layers of tone and texture̶Drone, Pad, Atmos, and Noise̶merge to generate resonance and transformation.

Blendwave Modulation Synthesis

Newly developed synth-engine with 6 structures, designed to create undulating and fluctuating tones.

Noise and Space

The Noise layer processes 8-second stereo sampling loops with noise blending and pitch modulation.

Extensive Effects Section

9 types of lush Reverb with shimmer, plus 6 types of effects including Tape Delay and Master Chorus.

Sequencer on Each Layer

Records performances, notes probabilities, and evolving tonal changes.

Immersive Ambient Generator
Ambient Ø (zero) is incredibly easy to use. Start by playing a tone from one layer using the note hold function. While listening closely, simply tweak the knobs to modify the tone and add other layers to shape a pleasing sound.

Blendwave Modulation Synthesis
We conducted extensive research into creating undulating and fluctuating tones for Ambient Ø, resulting in the development of a new wavetable-based synthesis.
Blendwave Modulation Synthesis combines 6 unique structures with 32 WAVEs featuring complex harmonic transitions, making it easy to create powerful low drones, lush pads, and transparent pizzicatos, perfect for ambient music.

4 knobs / 8 parameters offer a wide range of tone creation.

A WAVE contains 128 harmonic tables, allowing for diverse tonal changes such as moving from basic waveforms to complex harmonics. The WAVE is
represented by a yin-yang icon, with the yin representing moves in the reverse direction through the tables during modulation.

6 Structures
Each structure has a different number of oscillators and modulation circuits. ATMOS 1 applies ring modulation, while ATMOS 2 applies FM modulation.

Noise and Space
The Noise layer includes 8 specially selected nature sounds, offering noise blending, pitch adjustment and modulation to infuse unique spatial characteristics.
Additionally, it allows for up to 8 seconds of stereo sampling from the line input, letting you create personalized textures.

Extensive Effects Section
Ambient Ø is equipped with 9 types of lush reverb, each offering unique spatial dimensions and brightness settings. You can individually adjust the reverb send and shimmer send (for layering octaves) for each layer.

In addition to the reverb, the Ambient Ø offers
an effect unit with Tape Delay, Reverse Delay, and 4 master effects; Overdrive, Bit/Rate Crush, Tilt EQ, and Stereo Chorus.

Sequencer on Each Layer
You can not only layer the four tones, but each layer also includes a sequencer that allows you to record keyboard performances.
Furthermore, you can record changes in numerous parameters, including level, pan, and filter movement over time.

16 Ambient Sound Pattern Palettes, crafted by expert sound designers
No need to start from scratch. Choose a palette that fits your mood, start playing tones, tweak the knobs, and layer them following your heart. Thus, your inner thoughts and emotions will be crafted into sound.

Play On The Go: Portable, Built-in speaker, and Battery-powered
Leave your usual workspace and try using Ambient Ø in your living room or outdoors. As its evolving sounds mixes with the surrounding environmental noises, you are likely to experience genuine Ambient Music.

UltraDubeRolzer - fanfare for a fabulous drone machine

video upload by NoctopolisMusic

"My first encounters with the UltraDubeRolzer mostly made me scratch my head and wonder what I´d got myself into, but then I paired it with the Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrax organ and things took a different and most welcome turn - the UDR turned out to be a fabulous drone machine!

I just vaguely know what I´m doing here but there is crossmodulation going on between the Sidrax, the Duber filters (sounding wonderful!) and the Ultrasound section, and of course the Rollz do their thing too. All in all, the UDR (built by Maciek Jaciuk) semms to be an intriguing and exciting instrument. To be continued ..."

Note this is the first post to feature the UltraDubeRolzer. I ran a quick search online and only found the following video from four months ago.

Behringer Working on PRO-16 - 16 Voice Prophet-5

via Behringer

"Designing the PRO-16: The 16-Voice Revolution

We are excited to share an update and achievement with you: the recreation of the iconic Prophet 5, but with a twist – our version boasts 16 voices and many new features that push the boundaries of what's possible in a synthesizer.

Recreating this synthesizer was no small feat. The engineering work involved is extraordinarily complex, requiring meticulous attention to detail and precision. Our team of engineers had to navigate the intricacies of integrating thousands of components to stay true to the original sound while adding modern capabilities.

One of the most challenging aspects of this project was the development of an 8-layer printed circuit board (PCB). For those unfamiliar, a PCB is essentially the backbone of any electronic device, housing all the components and ensuring they work together seamlessly. An 8-layer board means there are eight layers of circuitry stacked within a single board, allowing us to pack more functionality into a compact space. This complexity is necessary to manage the increased number of voices and new features while maintaining signal integrity and reducing noise.

The result is a synthesizer that not only honors the legacy of the original, but also enhances it with 16 voices, offering unparalleled polyphony and richness. This modern version includes:

- Multi-mode filters. Providing a wide range of tonal possibilities.

- 8-mode atrophy settings: Allowing for extensive modulation and sound-shaping capabilities.

- Poly aftertouch key bed: Delivering expressive and dynamic playability, making it a dream to play.

These advanced features make the new PRO-16 a powerhouse for today’s musicians, blending the classic sound with cutting-edge technology.

We are incredibly proud of this achievement and can't wait for you to experience the new PRO-16."
