Time Trees /// Cascadia, Pulsar, OB-6 improv

video upload by Jon Gee

"Jamming on the regular here at the Noasphere. Chris’ best line is 'you should record this!'
It makes me laugh every time. The motivation to post and share comes and goes for all of us. It’s pretty fluid….we can get music into each other’s heads almost instantly. So why not….Here’s a jam around a Cascadia motif and a sweet beat treat from Pulsar. OB-6 has been a joy to play. I’ll post more off the cuff improvs and all the jams that fall into the 'you should record this' moment.
Power to the Peaceful."

"No talking, just jamming with the PULSAR-23 from Soma Labs.

Semimodular drum machine with 100+ patch points
4 tracks: kick, bass, snare, hihat.
It has a sequencer, but I only used it 2 times, on the bass and hihat. The rest is triggered by the 8 clock sources."

SimplexFM. Organismic sound exploration (SOMA lab)

video upload by SOMA Laboratory

"For details of synth engine and operation, please, read manual.
Product Page:"

"SimplexFM is the new groundbreaking firmware which turns METACONFORMER module into 4 track digital organismic synth. This is a free firmware for METACONFORMER.

SimplexFM is the pocket-sized successor of LYRA-8 ideas. Complex and surprising sound behavior comes from the interaction of timbres, not dozens of modulators and LFOs.

For launching SimplexFM you need to buy METACONFORMER. If you have METCAONFORMER you just need to download simplex firmware here."

You can find additional demos of METACONFORMER here.

SOMA Flux - Gesprächskonzert at SUPERBOOTH24

video upload by Superbooth Berlin

"A presentation of the innovative synthesizer FLUX by SOMA labs.

Vlad Kreimer the founder of SOMA labs presents a unique synthesizer FLUX based on magnetic principles.
In many ways, FLUX is inspired by the Theremin and inherits its core feature - the unique opportunity of controlling sound by moving your hands in the air without touching any object.
FLUX is the musicality and expression of classical instruments, such as violin or vocals, enriched by new timbres and the flexibility of postmodern instruments, harnessing the power of current technology."

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Soma - Flux - Your Questions Answered

video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Vlad from Soma showcased the innovative features of their upcoming product, *Flux*. Vlad discussed the use of neodymium magnets in Flux, highlighting the ability to experiment with different forms and forces of magnet to customize the keyboard response. You can even play Flux with a screwdriver!He also answered a question about the breakout box, which will offer MIDI output with full MPE support and 11 CV outputs 5 parameters in the left hand and 6 in the right for controlling external gear.

When asked about the possibility of playback in selectable scales, Vlad mentioned that currently, Flux offers chromatic quantization, but that the strength of the gear lies in its non-quantizing performance. Answering a question about accessing the parameters of the sound engines, Vlad explained that there are 37 different engines and up to 12 parameters for synthesis control, and each engine has unique variations. Vlad also hinted at the potential for future algorithm developments, showcasing the flexibility of Flux in accommodating additional instruments over time. For more information on Flux and its unique features, check out their website and stay tuned for updates.

Flux and Breakout Box are currently in development. Price TBC"

Soma Labs Flux - Highly Expressive New Instrument - Sonic LAB Presentation

video upload by sonicstate

"Soma Laboratory's unconventional design is a major factor in why their instruments are so unique. We take a look at the latest instrument Flux - which takes a lot of inspiration from the no touch approach of the original Theremin. However with the use of small magnets in each had there are five control axis per hand and up to 16 controllable parameters.
The instrument is loosely based on the Terra synthesis concept and features 37 digital algorithms which are treated like individual instruments with their own timbral characteristics.

The right hand controls the pitch, dynamic, octave and tilt (for timbral control) and the left hand controls more of the timbral character with a considerable amount of tonal range possible.

We talked with Vlad Kreimer who gave us an over view of how Flux works.
The first batch of production units will be going out later this year and the price they are aiming for is in the region of 1000 Euros + tax
