pikocore with midi out

video upload by infinitedigits

"there is a new version of the pikocore firmware available (v1.3.0) which automatically assigns each button a note. the note can be changed by holding the button and turning the leftmost knob.

anytime the pikocore is plugged into a midi receiving device it will send out midi notes for each step. you can quickly get sequence variations by turning up the 'jump randomness' which will randomize the sequence.

here I'm using an online tool called 'midi2midi' (google it, second result) which can automatically push midi from one device to another. here I'm sending midi out from the pikocore into the roland tb03."

ESK - Drums + Mixer Jamsession

video upload by Metunar

"Jamsession with an Elektron Digitakt and a Roland CR-8000 mixed together in an analog Ibanez RM-60 Mixer.
There is also reverb from a Lexicon PCM 90 (yellow FX knob on the mixer).
Furthermore I use the monitoring send as feedback line (blue FX knob on the mixer).
With mastering.

The Ibanez RM-60 is similar in design to the Boss KM-60. The Boss has more drive in the preamp and the HiPass filter in the master section can be used better in a performance.
The Ibanez Mixer on the other side has less ground noise and a monitor send.
I like both of them. Good usable for a jamsession."

The Roland System 100 Synthesizer - Semi Generative Patch #modularsynth #synth #ambient #drone #100

video upload by S R DHAIN

"Modular & Semi Modular synths can be set to self-generate all kinds of effects, noises, and music. It can be both challenging and fun to program the synths to do this.

Here , the 104 sequencer is running at a very low clock speed and has a sequence of notes that are consistently chiming in on the 101 keyboard, which itself has the VCF & the VCA being slowly modulated by it's LFO.

The 102 expander has the sample & hold switched on to both pulse out a note trigger & slowly modulate its the VCF. My occasional interjections are to change the key of the sequence on the 101 keyboard & the 102's drone note; the 102's pitch is affected by the CV input from the 101's keyboard."

Bad Gear - Nothing is Sacred

video upload by AudioPilz

"Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world’s most-hated audio tools. Nothing is sacred . After weeks of brand-new direct-to-Bad Gear game changers even hardened internet trolls like me fancy a little palette cleanser.

Today we are going to talk about the original Roland TR-707. This vintage drum machine and digital sibling to the more iconic TR-808 and TR-909 is mostly perceived in one of two ways: a timeless classic for both realistic drum sounds and futuristic 80s house OR the most boring and obsolete cheesebox since whatever Casio came up with back then.

Thanks to Philipp of Feedback Underground Studios for giving me access to his beautiful artifact. Serious requests are welcome to:

00:00 Intro tune

Crumar DS2 midified!

"Keith put a little MIDI interface into the DS2. This is my actually really favourite synth for bass - and now it can play proper (ie in-time) bass-lines for the first time in its 44 year old life"

The YMO Music Computer

video upload by Alex Ball

"A look at the revolutionary Roland MC-8 from 1977 which was one of the earliest microprocessor-controlled digital sequencers. Around 200 of these units were made and they were extremely expensive.

As I've covered the history of this unit several times, I thought it would be interesting to follow in the footsteps of a band that made significant use of the MC-8, which was Yellow Magic Orchestra.

In the video we look at how the MC-8 works and use it to compose a track in the style of YMO using the techniques and (where possible) instruments that they used in the late 70s.

Thank you to my Patrons for their support. The track, stems and MC-8 data are available there.

You can buy the track on my Bandcamp:

Wham! Everything She Wants ~ Vintage Synthesizer Recreation ~ RetroSound

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

One of my favorite tracks from the 80s.
Everything She Wants by Wham!
Written by George Michael (1984)

Featured the Roland Juno-106 (1984), the Roland SH-101 (1981), the PPG wave 2.2 and the Simmons SDS-8 e-drum system

This cover song series contains my own recreations of my favourite songs from the last 50 years. The original music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I recreate tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these tracks.
My intention is not to create covers that sound exactly like the original (if you want to hear identical sounds, please listen the original). It's more of an inspiration with my sounds from the old synthesizers from the past and of course the great appreciation for the original performers and producers."
