Dreadbox Nymphes, Oxi One, bluebox, Zoom MS-70CDR

video upload by Waveformer

"My first jam with the Dreadbox Nymphes polyphonic analog synth, together with the Oxi One sequencer, the bluebox mixer/recorder and the Zoom MS-70CDR effect pedal. Jam and patch notes are included as text overlays in the video. All patches and project files are available for download with link in the video description.

The custom patch on the Nymphes uses a triangle oscillator with a dash of white noise. The velocity is set to modulate the filter envelope decay and the filter amount. And an LFO with some delay/fade in modulates pitch, creating a vibrato effect on longer notes. The LFO rate is set to key tracking, so higher notes have a faster rate.

The Nymphes has complete MIDI CC support for all parameters, and the Oxi One sequencer sends CC messages to vary the filter cutoff and the decay time for the amp and the filter envelopes on a per-step basis.

The Zoom MS70-CDR adds a bit of chorus, autopan and autopan delay, widening the stereo image from the Nymphes' mono output. For some parts of the jam, I turn on a Bass Octave effect that helps fatten the sound.

A big thank you to Dreadbox who sent me the Nymphes to play with.

The audio is recorded to SD card on a bluebox recorder/mixer and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on a Canon EOS M50 mk2 with the included EF-M 15-45mm lens. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 18 (free version).

The Nymphes patch, Oxi One sequence and bluebox project settings can be downloaded from here:

The Zoom MS-70CDR patch is included below. To load a patch into the MS-70, connect your MS-70 to your computer using a USB cable, go to, right-click an available patch slot, select "Import Patch from text", and paste in this text.

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #125: Arturia MicroFreak - Song 3

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the MicroFreak. It's a monophonic/paraphonic synthesizer with a digital oscillator section containing 12 different algorithms and an analog filter.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
MicroFreak - Zoom MS-70CDR - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)"

Berlin School / Ambient jam with Bassline, Töörö, OXI ONE and friends

video upload by Waveformer

"Here's a live Ambient Berlin School jam with Bassline from Erica Synths, the Töörö synth from Fred's Lab, the OXI ONE sequencer, Source Audio Collider and Zoom MS-70CDR effects, and the Bluebox mixer/recorder.

The Bassline starts off with a very basic sawtooth-based bassline, which gets dirtier during the jam. The Töörö joins in with two melodic themes, a secondary bass pattern and a pad with lots of delay and reverb from the Collider and the Bluebox (clouds reverb algorithm).

The audio is recorded to SD card on 1010music's Bluebox mixer/recorder and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on a Canon EOS M50 mk2 with the included EF-M 15-45mm lens. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 17."

A Message To Roy Batty ( late night jam session )

video upload by ollilaboratories

"If you like my music you can find it here and also please consider supporting me at patreon for as little as 1 USD


Happy 2022 everyone!

This song was a late night session recorded a couple months back ( OCT 2021 ) not originally meant for release but after a few listens it has this special feeling that i thought was worth sharing with you all. The recording was all done in one take, more or less adlib on the go with the exception of the KORG monologue sequence which was pre-programmed.

You can also find this track on the cold/err EP together with two other songs i recorded in my new studio space during 2021. The EP release version has a message and voices overlaid post production, for those of you with sharp senses :)

This is a very rough take, it has a lot of noises, overdrive and glitches but i decided to keep it as is due to raw natural feeling of the jam. Straight from the heart, unfiltered.

Take care all, hoping that this year will bring loads of great music and great times to everyone out there. Stay safe and keep the music flowing!

Yours truly

Gear used:

► KORG Grandstage ( eventide space, 720 looper, catalinbread CSIDMAN, red panda particle )
► KORG monologue ( BOSS DE-200 )
► Moog Subsequent 37 ( Strymon timeline, blue sky )
► Arturia Microfreak ( Zoom ms-70 CDR )
► Zoom H5 2 track recorder"

Sinevibes Odds oscillator on Korg NTS-1, Arturia MicroFreak, Zoom MS-70CDR - Oddity

video upload by Waveformer

"Here's a jam using the new Odds oscillator for NTS-1 from Sinevibes, together with the Arturia MicroFreak and the Zoom MS-70CDR. The Odds oscillator is a "stochastic control synthesis plugin", which translates into lots of cool oscillator models that can be modulated, transposed and triggered with variable probability. The video contains patch notes throughout the jam.

My music on Bandcamp:

The NTS-1 receives notes from the MicroFreak via MIDI, and also has the arpeggiator turned on, so it plays arpeggiated notes based on the incoming MIDI notes from the MicroFreak. The Odds oscillator plays fifths with random probability, octave shifts and parameter modulation.

The audio is recorded to SD card on Zoon R-16 mixer/recorder and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on a Canon EOS M50 mk2 with the included EF-M 15-45mm lens. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 17.

Gear used:
- Korg NTS-1 with Sinevibes Odds oscillator
- Arturia MicroFreak
- Zoom MS-70CDR

Audio connections:
- Microfreak - Zoom MS70-CDR - NTS-1

MIDI connections:
- MicroFreak MIDI out - NTS-1 MIDI in"

Zoom ARQ-96 (synthesizer sampler sequencer)

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.

via this auction

You can find some demos of the Zoom ARQ-96 in previous posts here.

"Here’s what I think the pros are: 1) Sounds amazing. The sound quality is great, competitive with Roland gear. I was quite surprised at how hi-fi this machine sounds. 2) The round shape is effective. Takes up very little space, and really works well for sequencing. 3) Depth. This is a full featured synth with plenty of tricks up its sleeve. You will be able to record complex, full songs with this. 4) Price. For what I am asking, it’s an unbeatable amount of power for the money.

Now for the cons. 1) You will need a MIDI keyboard. For sequencing, the ring thing is fine. Try to play it like an instrument, it’s awkward and tricky. If you jiggle it too much (and you will) it will think you are detaching the ring and there will be an interruption. This is not wear and tear to this unit, it’s inherent to this design. It really demands that you play it with the ring detached, which is awkward. And to be clear: this controller design is not great for playing. Break out the trusty Keystep. That’s the biggest flaw I have found. 2) Menu diving. All that power comes with a learning curve. The menu is deep. This thing does a lot. You will be downloading a big old PDF and spending some time. (Nobody gives you a full print manual anymore, it seems.) This kind of learning curve is a hurdle for all of these do-a-lot devices. I just want to be clear that this is not an exception. 3) Zoom orphaned the line. You can find some tutorials, there’s a manual available, but that’s it. Zoom bailed on it."

260920 // Maschine


"A little electro-pop number for this vid.
All written and sequenced in, so not a lot to look at in terms of a performance.
A bit of filter twiddling and then an ending played on the last few bars.
Some nice synthy sounds from Maschine though 😉👍
