Mystic Explorations by The Animals at Night

"'Mystic Explorations' is a collection of songs written and recorded around the Mystic desktop synthesizer, which I designed for Recovery Effects. Each track was recorded in the early evenings of February, 2024, where I would start by going for a walk with my dog, Jackson, looking for inspiration. These cold, night-time walks centered around a cemetary in our neighborhood, known as a home and hunting spot for coyotes. I would record audio from these walks and use it as the backdrop for each track as I worked on it.

The Mystic is used as the main sound source for these songs, while accompanied by drum machines such as the MPC One, Syncussion SY-1 (built by myself), Roland T-8, and Roland Drumatix TR-06. I used modulation sources from my Eurorack synthesizer, MPC One, and Korg SQ-1. I used effects devices such as the Vongon Polyphrase, Chase Bliss Habit, and Strymon Magneto. All of these effects were synced via MIDI and / or CV and used in tandem with the CV controls on the Mystic to further modulate and enhance the compositions. I recorded bass guitar on the opening track, 'Dream or Memory'.

This was an exciting project to showcase the many sounds the Mystic can achieve, as well as challenging myself to create an entire record with one primary sound source. I hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun making it.

62HP EP5: 4 Voice iPad Sequenced Synth

video by Perfect Circuit

"This 62HP system is a four voice synthesizer with effects that is designed to be sequenced by an iPad with USB, but you could sequence it with any USB midi.

The synth voice is made with the Recovery Effects Jupiter Spirits quad VCO, an Intellijel Morgasmatron dual filter, XAOC Zadar quad envelope/function generator and two Intellijel 1U Dual VCAs for 4 VCAs total. There are two effects modules, the WMD/SSF DPLR dual delay and the Erica Synths Dual FX which has two DSP effect channels. The USB to CV is handled by the Noise Engineering Univer Iter. The iPad is used to both sequence the four synth voices with the Fuge Machine app, and to create the drums with Ruismaker.

Recovery Effects and Devices "Jupiter Spirits" Eurorack Oscillator Demo

Published on Apr 12, 2019 recoverysounds

"Demo of the 'Jupiter Spirits' 4 voice Eurorack oscillator from Recovery Effects and Devices."

"Jupiter Spirits orbits around the engine of many legendary synths of the 1970s, the classic CEM3340 chip. It is inspired by our love of the oscillator sections of the Moog designed Crumar Spirit, Roland Jupiter, and SH-101.

Four independent voices produce triangle and sawtooth waveforms creating 8 total outputs, generating thick, rich, analog voices. Jupiter Spirits is the ideal tool for those looking for multiple sound sources in a small package.

Hand-wired in Seattle, Washington. 12hp, 42mm deep. Includes a limited lifetime warranty."

Recovery Effects Pearl Low End Vintage Fuzz Eurorack Demo

Published on Mar 5, 2019 recoverysounds

"Demo of the Pearl Low End Vintage Fuzz Eurorack module from Recovery Effects."

Some info on the pedal version as the eurorack module isn't listed on the Recovery Effects website yet:

"The Pearl sinks its teeth into the low end and doesn’t let go. Its modified vintage circuit delivers heavy bass fuzz tone with versatile controls to work with your music. This pedal was created for bass, but you can also plug your guitar into it to make your low-end dreams come true!

At the heart of the pedal is an all-analog silicon design that sounds great with any pickup type. We use hand-picked, new-old-stock “oil can” BC109 transistors that add a classic, vintage tone to this modern fuzz. The user interface includes a range of controls including intensity, tonality, compression, output level, and a high/low switch that affects the amount of bottom end. The Pearl is a compact, simple to use, player-friendly pedal with a monster, low-end tone. In short, it is a force to be reckoned with.

Hand-made in Seattle, WA. The Pearl operates on a standard 'Boss' style 9vdc power supply, but can also run at 18vdc for additional headroom. True bypass switching. Includes a limited lifetime warranty."

Double Knot and Cutting Room Floor

Published on Apr 10, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

MATRIXSYNTH members get a %10 discount at Perfect Circuit Audio!

"Lorre-Mill Double Knot sending stereo out to two Recovery Cutting Room Floor Delay/Reverbs for extreme stereo sounds.

The most original and versatile release from Recovery Effects to date. Unlike any effect you’ve heard before, it offers mountains of wild modulation, delay, freeze and stutter. Anything from light lo-fi chorus to broken-tape-deck sounds can be achieved with this unique pedal. Melt, then freeze tones in place, or use it as a gritty echo or faux reverb.

Available here:

The Double Knot is a 100% analog desktop modular synthesizer and sequencer with a large amount of indeterministic and random possibilities. The Double Knot's stereo, dual voice architecture allows it to be used to generate a wide variety of abstract rhythms from the interplay of its two sequencers, and both oscillators can be used to intermodulate at both CV and audio-rate frequencies. A great way to generate minimal and pointillistic grooves.

Published on Aug 15, 2015 recoverysounds

via this auction

"1 of 2 made by the legendary Thomas Henry- Midwest Analog Products Drumbox. Contains kick and snare engines with 2 voices for the snare drum. Individual triggers and outputs for both, as well as a mix output. Also includes KADI in for triggering pre MIDI devices / drum machines. Completely hand made. Excellent condition, the only flaws being those of it's original hand-made nature. This thing is incredible- only selling to thin out some of my lesser used items for a new studio purchase. Comes with power cable. NOTE: The video shows the master volume with a blue 'Paia' style knob. I installed a black knob on it before the pictures were taken. I will include the original blue one"
