7/9/23 ElectroComp EML 200 (x2) + STG MooSonics + + Synthetic Sound Labs + LWSS CGS

video upload by Cfpp0

"Not sure why this video is framed like this. Most of what I am doing is happening out of frame, up at the top left, on the STG MooSonics Vanilla filter, mixer, and vca envelope modules. And probably quite a few clues to remembering this patch lie out of frame to the right of the EML 200s. This was shot before the SSL 1660, so my guess is that the LWSS CGS01 sub oscillator module is producing the little sequence—fed envelopes from the EML or LFO from"

8/9/23 SSL 1660 (D c8 to B12/B14) & 1310 + .com Q123 (440Hz) & Q124 + LWSS CGS35 + Moo Vanilla Env

video upload by Cfpp0

"Altering the D slider on The Matrix to get different variations: starting at c8 then B12/B14\B12 …
The Matrix to Vanilla Envelope VCA to Low pass in on CGS35. The soft drone towards the end is when Q123 Standards drops a 440Hz A note into the CGS35 band pass in. Flipping the switch to negative on Standards accentuates the tone and the Matrix CV out wavers it all."

Serge 5u Tones and Timbres

video upload by Rhythmicons

"These are 5u Serge circuits by Ken Stone/Catgirl Synth and Elby designs, assembled and paneled by by Lower West Side studios. The Dual Universal Slope Generators are the sound sources going into the STG Soundlabs mixer before heading into the Resonant EQ and '73 Filter. From there the signal is going to a Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo, a Roland DC-50, and an AKG BX-10. With this program I tried to capture what it is like to try to maintain a smile while feeling awful inside. I began with the desire to create something beautiful with the Serge, but the pull towards the experimental is sometimes far too great to resist."

Geist Rider 2023

video upload by Ross Totino

"Video Remix of a live recording where I riffed on Suicide's classic song Ghost Rider. Done on my old mostly modular synth system, a CGS01 Cat Girl Synth Sub Octave Divider with some clock signals from Logic. The CGS01 does all the heavy lifting!"

Red Waves by Doug Lynner

Serge compositions. You can find videos for this release previously posted here. Patch sheet below.

"'Red Waves' is comprised of two groups of pieces, WAD: Trio for Richard Driskell, and, 5 Solos for Simple Slopes.

Though they were recorded about two years apart and did not share the same compositional intents, both pieces share something important about them; they both intentionally use a small module compliment, a panel or less worth, and use the same patch for each of their segments.

In the case of WAD: Trio for Richard Driskell these “limitations” were used to highlight my interactions with a particular module, the Wilson Analog Delay (WAD).

In the case of 5 Solos for Simple Slopes the limitations were imposed to make the point that creativity and musicality can flourish on a small system and indeed can be enhanced by the experience, especially if you have a large system that you have established a workflow for.

For me, the 'Small Modular Aesthetic,' the term I use for this part of my work, is a healthy change-up that I find refreshing and immediate. To use only a single simple patch for multiple pieces extends this even further by necessitating a deeper exploration to find multiple unique voices from it.

For me music made in this way is raw and responsive and relates directly to the real situation for many new synthesists. I hope that Red Waves represents that.

One other thing that all of the pieces on Red Waves have in common is a video recording of each of the 8 performance. The videos of WAD: Trio for Richard Driskell have already been published and can be found on my Youtube channel. I have one of the videos for 5 Solos for Simple Slopes ready and will complete the others in the coming week. Keep an eye out for them!

Morning Tinkle - A Synth Demo

video upload by Lower West Side Studio

"An early morning patch I created to demonstrate the MFOS VC Echo. 2 tracks were created. The first driven by a CGS57P VCF/VCO then processed by an Oakley Equinox phase shifter and the VC Echo.

A second track at half speed accompanies the first track."

CGS114 + M142 Looping Logic Demo

video upload by Lower West Side Studio

"Using the M142 Universal Logic Block to control the output of a CGS114 Dual Universal Slope Generator with a Gate

In this example an M710/M712 Sequencer combo are used as the gate output for ULB INPUT #2.

This second gate can be anything from a keyboard input to comparator output.

via Lower West Side Studio

The M142 features 2 Logic Blocks in a single 1MU wide module.

Each block provides of 6 simultaneous logic outputs from only 2 inputs

INVERTER: Apply Low Gate = High (Gate ON) output and vice versa
OR: HIGH when one or both inputs are HIGH
AND: HIGH when both inputs are HIGH
XOR (Exclusive OR): HIGH when only one input is HIGH
XNOR (Exclusive NOR): Logical compliment of Exclusive OR
Visual feedback if provided through a series of LEDs allowing you to visualize the effects of your patches before actually making them.

via this auction

"One of the wildest and rarest Eurorack modules I've encountered! Strange fun awaits! CGS Funky Drummer, euro 32 hp
this is the classic clarke68 euro panel for building the cgs funky drummer module (ken stone)

more information on building the module is here:

the panel is 32hp wide

This DIY module is based on a panel designed by user Clark68 from Muffwigglers. It combines several CGS PCBs mounted horizontally behind one Panel. It consists of:
CGS13 - Gated Comparator
CGS36 - Pulse Divider and Boolean Logic
CGS31 - Digital noise

Functionally equivalent to the left half of Zthee's Serge SWAMP panel.

Synton 3000 frame with CGS Serge, Blacet and Jurgen Hailble modules

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

via this auction

"The Synton modules were expertly rebuilt and all the pots are a year old. The CGS Serge, Jurgen Haible Frequency shifter modules and Blacet were built and re-paneled by the same engineer who worked on the Synton 3000 only 6 months ago. It really does sounds great. If I were to keep it I would replace the PS with a nice linear supply but works fine as-is.

3017 VCF (2 pole state variable filter)
3224 Hi/Low Pass VCF
3005 EGR (ADSR)
3218 INV / SLR (Dual inverter/offset and slew limiter)
3233 S&H / LFO
3235 ENV / CPR (Envelope follower, comparator, and trigger delay)
Blacet 2100 VCO
Blacet / Wiard Miniwave with Socket Rocket
CGS Serge WAD (Wilson Analog Delay)
Jurgen Haible FS-1A Frequency Shifter
CGS Serge Dual Pre-amp
Blacet Power-supply and distro unit

All housed in a 6u 13" deep steel Hammond rack."
