Synplant 2 Is Here

video upload by Sonic Charge

Synplant 2 is an alien good time!

video upload by Peter Kirn

"First play with the new SonicCharge weirdness. Oh, yes."

"Synplant takes a genetic twist on sound design by moving beyond traditional knob-twisting and dial-adjusting, emphasizing exploration and discovery. Here, your ears guide you through a forest of organic textures and evolving timbres.

Genopatch Technology
Genopatch crafts synth patches from audio recordings, using AI to find optimal synth settings based on your source sample. As the strands in the user interface sprout and grow, they generate patches that increasingly match the chosen audio.

Sometimes, you will get a perfect match; other times, something new and unexpected. This balance of precision and unpredictability makes Genopatch a unique tool for sound exploration.

Genopatch runs entirely on your local computer, requiring no internet connection.

Digging into the Genome
Whether you begin from a random seed, an existing patch, or a creation from Genopatch, Synplant offers many different ways to sculpt your sound. When you are ready to delve further into the core of your patch, you can crack open your sound seeds and modify their underlying genetic code.

The new intuitive DNA Editor in Synplant 2 offers a structured layout with graphical representations for settings like envelopes, oscillator types, and filters.

Performance Features
Synplant makes it easy to create organic, multi-faceted synth patches by letting you play variations of a sound using different MIDI notes and velocities. It also offers a layer mode for creating rich, multi-dimensional sounds. There are polyphonic and monophonic play modes with portamento, tempo sync and more, further contributing to deep and versatile synth patches that are a joy to play.

Making your own sounds in Synplant is easy as a breeze, but it also comes bundled with hundreds of well-designed patches, and more are available to download when you purchase."

Teenage Engineering OP-1 OS Update with New DNA Synth & CWO Effect

OP-1 May 2013 OS Update - DNA and CWO

Published on May 29, 2013 djthomaswhite·83 videos

Additional videos below.

"This video is an introduction and demo of the May 2013 OS update to the amazing Teenage Engineering OP-1 synthesizer music machine. In this update two astounding new features are added in the form of the "DNA" synthesizer engine and the "CWO" Frequency Shifting Delay. The DNA engine is a noise engine capable of complete aggression and fax machine battle while at the same time possessing the ability for harmonic tonal leads and chords. The CWO FX is a Frequency Shifter with a wide range that make it possible to do phasing, flanging, chorus, tremelo, ring mod and comb filter types of sounds. You have to hear it to believe it. CWO also represents the first partnership by Teenage Engineering with an outside developer to co-op code to add to the OP-1's already heavy arsenal of sound capability. This developer is the one and only sonic master mind Magnus Lidström of Sonic Charge.

I hope you enjoy the video and the demo. There is a longer video with more blabber and explanation of what is going on here (Keep in mind that the visuals you see were from a beta build and show graphics which have since been refined and polished. It's actually a good preview for those of you who wonder what steps are involved in an OP-OS Beta Testing process. Soon you will be able to upload this OS yourself and I look forward to hearing (and seeing) what you can create with this as well as part of the OP community.

The Song played on the iPhone in this demo is from my band Santoma and is called "See Me." We have other songs on Large Music and are planning the release of our completed downtempo/lounge album soon.

Note: This is a pre-release build and final features may vary slightly from those shown in these clips. All music is original and no creative rights have been infringed upon in the making of this video."

And the PRESS RELEASE followed by a longer version of the video above:

"Finally here, the new OP-1 OS is ready! This time we're again adding something completely new. For the first time in the history of the OP-1 we have teamed up with an external developer and invited them to create something fresh and unique for our unit. The result of this first collaboration is something truly spectacular.

CWO - Frequency Shifting Delay

From the sonic master mind Magnus Lidström of Sonic Charge comes CWO

We first met Magnus Lidström a few years ago at a developer party here in Stockholm, Sweden. Even before that we have all been huge fans of Magnus' work, such as Microtonic, Synplant and Bitspeek. When first thinking about doing something together for the OP-1 platform we discussed what could be ported. We soon came to the conclusion that an effect would fit really well. Inspired by Magnus' own Echobode, the new CWO effect is a frequency shifting delay with a twist, modified for the OP-1 format.

'I like the limitations. The four knobs on the OP-1 have been highly optimized, so that each one produces a drastic change in sound on its own. This combination of effects is uncommon and capable of producing a wide arrange of sounds, such as phaser, flanger, tremolo and dub echo. It is really good on drums and for making simple sounds more fun and complex.'

Magnus Lidström, Sonic Charge
We made the graphics for CWO to resemble a cow, digesting and processing the audio signal through it's four stomach compartments, producing a very unique result. We hope you will like it and look forward to hearing your sonic experiments! Chew away!

DNA - CPU ID Noise Synthesis

Also new in this update is a completely new synthesis engine: DNA

The new DNA synthesis engine adds CPU ID Noise Synthesis, meaning it's a noise synth, based on the Analog Devices 64-bit Blackfin processor ID, unique to every single OP-1 unit. Every synth will therefore potentially have a slightly different sound. Sometimes tonal, sometimes not, this engine adds a truly expanded sonic pallet to the OP-1. Filter, Wave number, Wave modifier and Noise can be directly controlled via the knobs. The DNA graphics is set to resemble a Kaleidoscope, where sound and visuals are abstractly interlinked. Developed in-house.

OS intro video by DJ Thomas White


Long time OP-1 user and beta tester DJ Thomas White made a sweet video introduction and demo of the OS update.

Watch and listen as he explores the power of DNA and CWO, resulting in a wide array of sounds, all created with the new OS. Available as a free preset pack!

Thanks Thomas!"

Teenage Engineering OP-1 May 2013 OS Update
Published on May 29, 2013 djthomaswhite·83 videos

"(Introductory NOTE: This is a longer original introduction to the new OS that I put together. It has outdated graphics that have since been polished. This is one example of what takes place during beta testing. All sound features are unchanged. There is a much more in depth level of explanation of operation of the new OS here and it would be a shame to have this sit on a shelf... so here you go.)"

Improv with Ultranova & Roland SH32

YouTube Published on Aug 26, 2012 by hdebbache2000

"Hey there, this is my latest improv. A lot of things have changed since my last appearance, gear & all. I am trying to adapt my gear to better integrate into my DAW workflow (Ableton Live), and because of this I have acquired an Ultranova. The Roland's time in my studio is counted though...

Other than that there are some sampled loops playing, a Synplant VA VST(controlled via android tablet), and a Hartmann Neuron (AKAI LPK25 mini keyboard)."

Propellerheads Rack Extension Developer Interview

YouTube Uploaded by sonicstate on Mar 27, 2012

"One of the big pieces of news from MESSE was not actually at the show. The night before it all kicked off, Propellerheads had a press event at a rather stylish hotel in the centre of Frankfurt, where they unveiled Figure - the iOS application with Reason synth engines, and the new Reason Rack Extension plug-in format. This is opened up to developers and they say its as easy it can be to port over existing plugs and instruments (though it helps if they have a rack-like GUI).

To test this theory, we caught up with Magnus Lidstrom from SonicCharge (they make the excellent Synplant instrument) who converted his BitSpeak plug-in to the new format in time for the demo. [Magnus Lidstrom also created the Malstrom graintable synth]

Reason Rack Extensions are coming in Reason 6.5 (Summer we think).

Undead Instruments - timeFrog II - Inertial Sensor Gestures

Undead Instruments - timeFrog II - Inertial Sensor Gestures from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

"The timeFrog II is a powerful and flexible MIDI device dedicated to music computer and MIDI applications.

The spin/inertial sensor provides a totally new kind of control surface, which opens new way for playing with parameters.

The 8 endless encoders, 4 potentiometers and 6 buttons form a functional and compact.

There is also a embedded 4 steps sequencer: 4x4 steps x 6 voices

This patch was setup in Ableton Max For Live using only two instances of SonicCharge's Synplant software synthesizer. These two patches where customized and
designed to work with the timeFrogII. Creating for some very unique musical gestures. All sequencing and note generation is from the timeFrog controller.​products/​timefrog"

Todd Barton and Metasynth and Shakespeare

via brian c:
"Todd is the resident composer of Ashland Oregon's Shakespeare Festival among other things. He wrote an article a few years back on Metasynth ( see . The article does a very good job of placing that software and synthesis into a context of actual music production for theatre (as opposed as to yet another TB303 groove). Metasynth allows you to visualize a sound clip as an onscreen graphix and then manipulate the image to work changes into the sound and vice versa. It's kind of like the offspring between Fruitlyoops BeepMap and SonicCharge SynPlant where sound derivation is indirect thru image manipulation. - interesting stuff indeed.

The article is at

His site is pretty interesting too. Shakespeare and synths - cool stuff -

Prithy, wouldst thou resonate with my four pole filter that I might divine thy note?
