Touch Bass & FX Improv


video upload by Synthux Academy

"Touch Bass is part of the Simple Touch family. Touch Bass is a powerhouse polyphonic subtractive synthesizer packed with features! Built-in arpeggiator, Euclidean rhythms, internal modulations, reverb, and more. In this video, I attempt to play three units simultaneously to create a stereo-rhythmic sound experience! Tune in to see if I succeed or if it's just a cacophony of chaos. Spoiler: it's going to be epic either way!

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Synthux Academy - Touch 2 Tactile Synth


video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Roey from Synthux Academy showcased the new Touch 2 instrument, a versatile standalone device that can also be integrated into Eurorack setups. Powered by the Daisy Seed microcontroller, Touch 2 offers swappable faceplates to accommodate different instrument functionalities, making it easily customizable for musicians. With features like an arpeggiator, Euclidean rhythms, distortion, Valhalla reverb, and more, Touch 2 promises a unique and interactive music-making experience. Additionally, the platform encourages community involvement with regular developer contests and opportunities for beginners to learn and collaborate with experienced professionals.

Touch 2 Price: 179 Euros

"Touch 2 is an instrument designed for tactile interaction and hands-on control. Upload different instruments through USB and play! Swappable faceplates (four included) and 12 touch pads makes it a tactile performance instrument.

Running the Daisy Seed microcontroller, Touch 2 sounds AMAZING no matter what instrument you flash on it. And, it's programmable, so you can design your own instrument using C++, Arduino, Max or Puredata.

Available both assembled and DIY

TOUCH 2 MAIN FEATURES
Daisy Seed ready
12 touch pads
6 trim knobs
2 faders
2 switches
Audio in [Stereo]
Audio out [Stereo]
Also works with Teensy/Arduino"

Can Plants Make Music? (Clatters Machines Garden Listener Demo)


video upload by Poorness Studios

"I found this really cool Eurorack module which is designed to interact with plants. The Garden Listener from Clatters Machines creates bioelectric gate, trigger, and CV (pitch) signals from any living organism. In this video, I test it out with a pothos plant.

Intro - 0:00
History & Overview - 0:17
Hooking up the Plant - 1:51
MIDI Test w/Volca - 2:33
CV Test w/Modular Synth - 3:26
Final Thoughts - 6:09

You can find out more about the Garden Listener here: https://clattersmachines.com/prodotto...

See the podcast I referenced during the video here: https://www.synthux.academy/blog/desi..."



"The Garden Listener is a random control messages generator from biometric signals. It detects conductivity variations on living beings’ surface and transforms them into MIDI notes, ranging from C-1 to C8, and CV signals (0 – 5V). Its behavior can be tamed through the one-knob menu from which you can choose and modify:

probes’ sensitivity (making it more or less sensitive to current variations);
scale (chromatic, major, minor, indian and arabic);
MIDI channel (from 1 up to 16);
LEDs’ brightness.
Conductivity variations are detected by the Probes Input and converted into MIDI notes in real time according to the Main menu settings. Each MIDI note exits through the MIDI output, allowing you to take advantage of the sound of either any synthesizer equipped with a MIDI port or any VST in your DAW, and gets converted into an analog signal.

Trigger and Gate are fired every time a new note is generated, their voltage output can be modified with the respective attenuator (0 – 5V).

All the MIDI notes are converted into variable voltages (0 – 5V) depending on their pitch and exit through the CV output (1V/oct).

The CV output behavior can be modified via the Octave Selector which acts as a “CV equalizer” from which you can choose to generate CV only if the respective MIDI note lies within a certain octave range.

For once, leave those LFOs alone, and let any living conductive being modulate your signals.

The module comes with 3.5mm white probes and a set of snap-on adhesive reusable electrode pads. A MIDI-TRS type A adapter (not included) is required for the MIDI output.

The module requires calibration for a proper 1V/oct output."

Synth Design Podcast // E.10 // Tony Rolando, Make Noise


video upload by Synthux Academy

"Co-edited with Teunis Marseille, who's also responsible for the motion graphics and music you're hearing on every episode. Check out his work here: www.instagram.com/teueunis

Make Noise interfaces are like a riddle. They remind me of minimalistic art pieces from the early 20th century - inviting you to question geometric compositions of mysterious lines and shapes. These instruments purposefully do not give a straight answer but hint towards a direction one could take.

This is a deliberate design decision that aims to shape the way musicians use a Make Noise instrument.

The design invites a particular kind of composer - one that will dare to explore an untrodden path, in the search for exceptional sounds and performance along the way. The interface is like a guide, a map of sorts, that can be read in various ways.

The Strega, in particular, is interesting because of its unconventional signal path. This is not your traditional "voice", to say the least. Placing the delay/reverb in the center of the circuit directly affects the interaction with the instrument and the kind of sounds that will come out of it.

In this conversation, we dive into the challenges of designing an instrument like the Strega - a synthesizer that was made in close collaboration with artist Alessandro Cortini."
