Ambient jam with the Sequential Prophet Rev2, Eurorack, Sloër, and Soma Cosmos

video upload by Jay Hosking

"Please support my work on Patreon:
A live, semi-improvised synthesizer jam performed entirely on hardware.

I went to the store to try out the Sequential Prophet Rev2 for fun, but they didn't have it set up on the floor.

"You should just take it home," the rep said. "Bring it back within 30 days if you don't want it."

So here we are, with the Prophet Rev2 at home. I love having so many voices that so easily can be panned into a binaural sound. The keybed and layout are fantastic and I just like playing it. The sound is great except when it isn't; something about the full-open filter or resonance is displeasing in a mix, though I often don't mind it on its own. Here, I made a binaural patch, with the same synth sound hard panned to left and right sides, but slight variation in the DCOs and "slop" (terrible word) leading to a very rich stereo feeling. One of those rare beautiful things you can do with only some polysynths (and software, of course).

In short, the Prophet Rev2 is a wonderful synth to explore with something of a frumpy sound, for better and for worse.

I was noodling on some chords and wanted accompaniment, so I started with the Cosmos (for some asymmetrical looping), and then took out my melodic eurorack skiff. It's been a while since I had it on the table, so it was nice just to hear these sounds again. Eurorack just leads me to places and sounds I might not otherwise find.

Ultimately, this jam came together in a day, and I'm always a little worried about those ones, because you might not like them as much the next day. So far, though, I'm pretty happy with it.

Thanks for listening.

House 90 🎹 (Hapax sequencer // JD08 // 0Coast + Apocalypse + H9 // Nymphes + Julianna + Pill // S1)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"The Squarp Hapax is probably one of the most powerful hardware sequencer I've used 🤩 In this video it's at the heart of the setup, sequencing the Roland JD-08 (synth & piano chords), the Make Noise 0-Coast (tonal kick) and the Dreadbox Nymphes (pulsing bass). The Roland S-1 is being played in real-time on the bridge part.

I used a lot of features of the Hapax in this video:
- The Euclid and Swing midi effects for the synth and piano chords
- The conditional trigs to add fills etc., chance (probability for some notes to play or not) and roll
- CC automation, used to modulate the cutoff, noise oscillator on the bassline played by the Nymphes
- CV modulation on the 0-Coast (you can see the signals being sent by the red/green connectors at the back of the Hapax)
- The transpose within scale feature, where with one track (track 16), you can transpose in real time - or record the transpositions (I used both here) - all the patterns playing on the other tracks.

* Hardware used *

- Roland JD-08 (digital 128-voice, bi-timbral synth)

- Make Noise 0-Coast + Death by Audio Apocalypse (fuzz pedal) + Eventide H9 Max (bandpass delay)

// BASS:
- Dreadbox Nymphes (6-voice analog synth) + Walrus Audio Julianna (analog chorus/vibrato) + Pill (analog ducking pedal)

// LEAD:
- Roland S-1 (4-voice digital synth, inspired by the famous mono synth SH-101)

- Squarp Hapax (dual-project sequencer, 16 tracks per project, 8 patterns per track, 8 effects per track, algorithmic tools, MIDI, CV, etc.)"

Analog synth jam with the Roland SH-101, Moog Subsequent 37, Walrus Sloër, Source Audio Ventris

video upload by Jay Hosking

"Please support my work on Patreon:
A live, semi-improvised synthesizer jam performed entirely on hardware.

I got an SH-101. Yes, it's simple. But I love its particular sound and find it endlessly deep and soothing. Thinking of it that way made me think to pair it with the Subsequent 37, another synth that provokes exactly the same feeling. Turns out the two make a good team.

Roland SH-101 into Source Audio Ventris - Bass / melody synth sequence
Moog Subsequent 37 into Walrus Sloër - Lead synth

Performed and recorded live, with EQ, compression, and limiting on the master.

Ambient bliss with the Walrus Slöer reverb and synths! (Nymphes, Moog One, TT-303, MS-20)

video upload by Jay Hosking

"Trying out Walrus's new stereo reverb with some hardware synthesizers.

I recently purchased the Walrus Slöer and thought I'd try it with some hardware synths. The Slöer is an update to their Slö pedal, now with stereo input/output and a couple of new algorithms. I'm extremely impressed with the overall sound of it, and got lost in my explorations. It's got a particular texture and character that's unlike my other reverbs, and I can foresee myself using it for other ambient work in the near future. In fact, I wrote the start of a few songs while noodling with it!

There's about 90 minutes of footage, which is available for supporters of my Patreon, but I trimmed it down to about 15 minutes for YouTube. And for those of you who prefer my actual music performance videos, I've recorded a song with the Slöer and will release it in about a week, when I have a moment to get it in shape.

Thanks for listening, and I hope this is useful and musical.

Synths used:
Cyclone Analogic Bass Bot TT-303
Korg MS-20
Dreadbox Nymphes
Moog One"

Janus and the Tablehooter

video upload by Wein Glas

"The second video in my new 'Fuzz pedals and Synthesizer Series' [part 1]. This time the Sound of the Casiotone MT400v is shreddered with the Walrus Audio Janus. A wonderful pedal that combines Fuzz and Tremolo sounds in one unit with two joysticks.

This results in what you can call a 70s organ revival with some Carlos moments.

Walrus Audio Melee and the Wall of Casio

"'Walrus Audio Melee and the Wall of Casio MT 400v' might be a start of a new series of videos featuring Fuzz Pedals and Synths, if you like. But beware: There will be Noise!

The video shows the Walrus Audio Melee together with one of the best tablehooters of all time: The Casiotone MT400v. These two do make a great team. But the Melee doesn't like my gloves. See for yourself at 1:00

Blue Sky 💙 (Waldorf M with H9 + RMX500 ; Bigsky ; Timeline ; Analog Drive + Julianna + Microtubes X)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"On my previous video featuring the Waldorf M, I used the synth DRY (without any effect). For this time I wanted to get back using the 4 individual outputs coupled with a few effects!
Hope you'll enjoy and please watch till the end as I have a question ❓ for you 😉

The M was used in its multi-timbral mode with the 4 parts (Bass, Chimes, Lead1, Lead2) going to different outputs processed by different effects (see below). I've used the Pioneer RMX-500 on one of the lead part to make transition, build-ups, add movement etc.

* Hardware used *
- Waldorf - M with the following effects for the:
- BASS: Elektron - Analog Drive (Distortion) + Walrus Audio Julianna (Chorus/Vibrato) + Dakglass Microtubes X (Distortion - connected to the left ouput of the Julianna pedal)
- CHIMES: Strymon Timeline (dTape Delay)
- LEAD1: Strymon Bigsky (Shimmer Reverb)
- LEAD2: Eventide H9 Max (Mod Delay) + Pioneer RMX-500"

Pipe Dream (Elektron Digitone 1.32 // Dreadbox Nymphes + Walrus Audio Julianna + The Pill Pedal)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Can the sparkling digital vibes of the Elektron - Digitone form a nice pair with the fat analog sound of the Dreadbox - Nymphes?
I made this track recorded in one shot, trying to get an answer! I'll be glad to have your point of view 😉

The 4 synth tracks of the Digitone were used here to play:
- T1: FM Drums
- T2: Chimes
- T3: Fast arpeggiated chimes
- T4: Lead bells (played live)

In the recent v1.32 firmware update of the Digitone, there's a nice mixer view which makes it way easier to fade in the different tracks 🤩

I also used 3 out of the 4 MIDI tracks of the Digitone to sequence the Nymphes 6-voice polyphonic analog synth. Each MIDI track played a different part (but with the same sound as the Nymphes is not multi-timbral):
- MIDI1: Bass
- MIDI2: Lead
- MIDI3: Riff (triggered by the FILL button of the Digitone)

I also make quite heavy use of the probability feature of the Digitone's sequencer in order to add some variations on the unique pattern which was used.

* Hardware used *
- Elektron - Digitone: Drums, Chimes, sequencer.
- Dreadbox - Nymphes: Bass, Lead, Riff.
- Walrus Audio - Julianna: Stereo Analog Chorus/Vibrato pedal, adding this wide stereo effect on the Nymphes 😍
- The Pill Pedal: Ducking the Nymphes, triggered by the phones' output of the Digitone (set it up in order that mainly the kick is triggering the effect)."

Death By Audio Rooms, Walrus Audio Julianna, and Soma Lyra-8

Matt Lowery

"I spent some time with the Death By Audio Rooms this week. I love how it softens and expands the Lyra-8. I also love using the Julianna to add a very subtle drift on top of the reverb.

Four of Rooms' Six modes are demonstrated in this video.
