Ambient modular jam into the Wesaudio Rhea tube compressor


video upload by Sonic Circuitry

"With this 500 series stereo channelstrip, featuring the WesAudio Rhea tube compressor, I’ve got a great sounding chain for recording my modular synth, needing no additional plugins to finalize the sound.

The Hermod+ is sequencing modules by Vostok, with a zlosynth Kaseta adding tape saturation/delay on one of the voices. Then into the Weston Audio mixer, Strymon Starlab adding reverb, and the right output channel goes through the Echo Fix EF-X3 before it hits the 500 series chain."

Note this is the first post to feature zlosynth instruments.



Kaseta is a multi-purpose module inspired by reel-to-reel tape machines. It simulates magnetic hysteresis to provide warm saturation, its four independent delay lines can be used to sculpt rhythms or feedback loops, and it offers wow and flutter control. The module also goes beyond typical tape machine features, with free-moving delays, trigger sequencing, and an internal oscillator.

While the module works perfectly well as a regular delay, its flexible interface can also be wired up to provide a variety of effects, sounds or CV sources. The following list summarizes its main features. To learn more, see the User Manual.

Aluminium panel with high-quality anodized finish
CNC engraved lettering
20 HP, skiff friendly
Delay with 4 reading heads
Tape saturation simulation
Wow and flutter effects
Stereo output
Up to five minutes of recording
Internal oscillator

SUPERBOOTH 2024: Weston Precision Audio - Dual Stereo VCA


video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Devin from Weston introduced a new module to complement their existing analog modules. The Dual Stereo VCA is designed to complete the synthesizer voice, featuring two VCA's per channel - a vintage discrete transistor VCA with vintage op-amps and a clean modern chip-based VCA with modern op-amps. Devin showed how the module works with two independent channels and a link button to control the stereo pair for a stereo VCA effect. The Dual Stereo VCA offers options for clear hi-fi sound or vintage over-driving, with features like over-drive switches, detent controls for input and output gain, and a zero-cross detect to eliminate clicking artifacts.

Dual Stereo VCA Price: 220 USD"

Five12 QV-L Quad Variable LFO


video upload by Steve Turner

"Vector Sequencer, QV-L, nRings, Weston Precision Audio SF1, 4MS DLD

So really I am testing the ATEM MINI PRO and headset mic here. I think I got it close but when I started dialing the grit in using the LEVEL on the SF1 you can really hear it pushing (which is a good thing, but less good for video levels). This is fun."

WESTON PRO2021 Monophonic Synthesizer - SC Pro One Clone

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"This is a faithful recreation of the classic Pro One analog synthesizer circuit though with some serious construction upgrades. This keyboard is simply a tank of an instrument. Even the pitch and mod wheels are made of solid anodized aluminum.
It's loaded with the popular MTG TURBO CPU upgrade that allows 5-pin midi in, out & thru.
The oscillators use the famous Curtis CEM3340 rev G chips. It's as true to the Pro One circuit as it gets - but of course with modern parts which grants improved stability.
The keybed is a 37 key FATAR TP/9S (semi-weighted) with no aftertouch strip.
The chassis is powder coated aluminum with machine milled cherry wood end cheeks that I had treated with tung oil and finished with a bee-wax based wood polish."

Superbooth 2023 Weston Precision Audio H1 Analog Harmonizer


video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Devin from Weston Precision Audio at Superbooth 2023. He showed us his new module called the H1 Analog Harmonizer. It features two digitally controlled analog oscillators with a pitch tracking input, generating instant analog chord stabs. The module also has dual quantizers and analog through zero FM, making it a great addition to any modular rig. It's in the final stages of development, with user-updatable firmware and a target price of $395 US.

Devin also mentioned an additional Chord Mode where users can save and address 12 chords with CV inputs. The goal of this module was to simplify the process of achieving basic polyphony in a modular rig without having to tune multiple VCOs. Overall, the H1 Analog Harmonizer is a unique and affordable module that will be a great addition to any modular synth setup.

Weston Precision Audio - AD110 Analog Drum Synthesizer


video upload by SchneidersLaden

"Here is a quick look at the Weston Precision Audio AD110 - a six-voice analog drum module inspired by the famous Boss DR-110. It features single outputs for each drum voice and an additional mix output that reacts to the accent input. This is a simple to use module with a great sound and feel. You'll notice that it is possible to create "ghost notes" with combing long decay sounds with accents - very nice!"



"Weston Precision AD110 is a six-voice analog drum machine inspired by the famous Boss DR-110.

The Boss DR-110 is a sought-after vintage drum machine that resembles its more "famous" sister, the Roland TR-606, in many ways sonically, featuring an additional clap besides a different look/operation. Weston Audio have beefed up the DR-110, which is also often found modified, and expanded the functionality of the rather static original. Thus, the individual sounds can all be accessed separately and sonically modified. The clap was even given a reverb, while an accent input can be found at the mix-out.

Features:

Faithful recreation of all six DR-110 voices, output in Eurorack signal format.
Additional sound setting options that go far beyond those of the original: Kick: Pitch/Resonance, Snare: Pitch/Decay, Cymbal: Decay and Clap: Spread/Reverb.
Single outs + mix out with accent input"

Weston Precision Audio - B2 Kick/Bass Voice & XAOC Devices - Koszalin


video upload by SchneidersLaden

"In this video we listen to two quite interesting modules, both in combination and separately. This is not a video manual or tutorial, just some sounds and patches with these two modules.

The Xaoc Devices Koszalin is a digital stereo frequency shifter with linear thru-0 and exponential FM - Xaoc Devices have once again managed to build a module on a digital basis, which delivers an incredibly precise and high-quality sound. Even if we push it to the limits more often in this video, the sonic quality shows in almost every situation.

The Weston Precision Audio B2 Kick/Bass Voice module describes itself virtually by its name. It features an oscillator, envelope, filter and VCA - in other words, everything you need for a monophonic, subtractive synthesizer - only here everything is designed to create kicks and bass. The versatile oscillator with waveshaper, the great sounding filter and the well thought-out user interface make working with the module a great delight."

Weston Precision Audio B2 - Synth voice Demo


video upload by Dziam Bass

"Hello Guys.
Weston B2 is Kick module And also synth voice,
After the last demo kick, today I added the sequencing to show the Synth voice how it sounds - for me it's wonderful. I added some reverb in the last sequence and raised the pitch to get a nice melody
Earlier, I showed sequences and playing with Decay and sometimes adding Sub and some waves.
It's a self-contained synth voice from Kick, so I really like it.

More about module :
B2 contains everything you need to create deep, thumping kick drums or cutting bass lines in one compact 14HP unit: A 1 V/Oct VCO with 4 waveforms, a 3-way waveform mixer with sub-octave sine wave, 2 fast, switchable AR/AD envelope generators, a high quality VCA, and a multi-mode VCF for additional tone shaping!

New features of B2 from B1:
+ New reset/trigger circuit and faster minimum attack times (~25uS) without artifacts
+ Sub-octave sine
+ Wave select saw or 2x saw
+ New VCF with LP/BP/HP selection"

Phase modulation - 4 examples


video upload by John Schussler

Update: new video with 4 examples.

"Here are four VCOs that all offer phase modulation in one form or another:

Weston Precision Audio: PAO Phase Animated Oscillator
Patching Panda: Operat
WMD: Phase Displacement Oscillator
Joranalogue: Generate 3

I'm trying to get my head around how their implementations differ, and what the ultimate effects of those implementations are on the sound.

There's one more phase modulation VCO I have that I didn't include: the Mindphaser. It's a complex oscillator with a very different architecture, so didn't seem like a good fit. I did a couple videos on that a while back, if you want to hear some of its phasing.

Sequencer: Stochastic SIG. Modulating VCO: Intellijel Dixie II+

00:00 Intro
00:20 Weston Audio PAO
07:40 Patching Panda Operat

Weston PRO2021 (SCI Pro-One Clone)

Published on Feb 9, 2019 pdxfunk


via this auction

"This is the 2nd prototype (a verification final build) I built while developing a DIY kit of a full fledged clone of the classic Sequential Circuits Pro-One synthesizer.

This unit contains the final versions of all the components and PBCs and is 100% ready to rock. Make no mistake this machine sounds EXACTLY like a vintage Pro-One. But, it's even better because it's built more solidly and reliably! Search YouTube for PRO2021 and I have a video up comparing the sounds with a real vintage Pro-One.

This particular unit, being a prototype has one little idiosyncracy, in that there were 2 misprints on the laser etching. One is the "Seq1/Seq2" switch originally says "Seq2/Seq2" and I have put a small black "1" sticker over it (see detail pic). The other is that the CV IN is labeled CV OUT and I have similarly put a little sticker of it (see detail pic). That's it for weirdness. It's 100% electrically good to go and sounds and looks amazing. Think of those little panel quirks as some uniqueness to make this a true treasure to only gain in value when this synth gets famous! Haha! :D

The PRO2021 has all the features of the original Pro-One, plus:
-Anodized and laser etch formed aluminum enclosure
-Hand-finished solid cherry wood end cheeks
-Custom Weston CNC machined aluminum precision pitch bender and modulation wheels (WAY better than the stock Pro-One wheels)
-Fatar semi weighted 37 key keybed (WAY better than the stock Pro-One keyboard. This is what is in the Moog Sub 37, etc...)
-MTG "TurboCPU" processor (upgrades sequencer function, enables MIDI, etc..)
-MIDI In/Out/Through
-LFO rate AND Gate LEDs
-VCOs powered by genuine Curtis CEM3340 Rev G chips
-VCF and Envelopes powered by Alfa clones of CEM chips

This machine is basically a vintage Pro-One but built like a real, professional instrument, with none of the cheesy money-saving stuff on the original (no disrespect, but if you've played a vintage Pro-One, you know what I'm talking about.)"
