Sound Objects - Synthesizer Gek.Ko


video upload by Sound Objects





"We launched a midi sequence from Shruthi XT to the Gek.Kon synthesizer and turned the knobs."



via Sound Objects

Gek.kon is a monophonic digital lo-fi synthesiser. Oscillator generates a waveform that contains digital artefacts, which we can smooth with a simple analogue filter. Smoothing the waveform brings new sounding, giving us a spectrum from lo-fi till vintage timbres.

Gek.kon has:

𝄪 Syncable DCO 1 & 2 generating sawtooth, triangle, sine and pulse waveforms

𝄪 Modulator LFO applied to Oscillators, Amplifier, PWM and Envelope of the Filter

𝄪 Classic Envelope Generator ADSR

𝄪 Dual analogue filter 6 db per octave

𝄪 Filter Phase Inversion

𝄪 Extra effect features like overdrive, fuse, noise and distortion

𝄪 Midi input, assignable midi channels

𝄪 Monophonic audio output

𝄪 Hidden magic tricks

TUCKER/80年代の和風シンセサイザー「曙」(あけぼの)どこを触っても和風な音しか出ないこの楽器で作曲する試み。

"A synthesizer for traditional Japanese music made in the 80s.

An attempt to compose with this instrument that only produces a Japanese sound no matter where you touch it"

I didn't realize GAKKEN went that far back. See the Gakken and SUIKO labels below for more. Not sure if that's a SUIKO in the first video above, but it looks like one.

Goldbaby end of year free packs


GoldbabySamples

"I have made 2 free packs as an early 2020 Christmas present!

The first is called Toy Record Sounds. It was created using a toy record maker manufactured by a Japanese toy company called Gakken. Designed by Yuri Suzuki, it makes small plastic records. Very, very Lofi and super fun.

There are two versions:

One contains patches for Ableton Live, Kontakt, Battery, Logic Pro and Geist. You can download it from here: https://www.goldbaby.co.nz/freestuff....

The other one is for Maschine and can be downloaded here: https://www.goldbaby.co.nz/maschine.html

The second free pack is called ND2 VS Plasma Kicks.
This pack was created using two of my favourite recent purchases, the Plasma Pedal and the Nord Drum 2. A marriage made in heaven/hell...

色々なシンセで YO-KAI Disco シンセファンに捧ぐカバー


Harumio 1529

Note the Prophet-4.

"シンセファンに捧ぐYO-KAI Disco
たまにはYMO以外もやってみます。YMOファンの方もぜひ聞いてみてください。
機材紹介にCOCOA(東風の動画で使った自作シンセ)を入れ忘れました。シーケンス(Lchのピコピコ)担当です。
機材紹介パートは速読 or 一時停止推奨ですがそもそもたいしたこと書いてないので見逃してもらっても大丈夫です。"

Googlish: "YO-KAI Disco dedicated to synth fans
Sometimes I try other than YMO. If you are a YMO fan, please do not hesitate to ask.
I forgot to include COCOA (the self-made synth used in the Dongfeng video) in the equipment introduction. I am in charge of the sequence (Lch picopico).
The equipment introduction part is recommended for speed reading or pausing, but since it doesn't write much in the first place, it's okay if you miss it."

Hatsune Miku, Gakken Pocket Miku


Published on Nov 25, 2016 ISOTROPOSPHERE


"CGI / Virtual character, idol sensation Hatsune Miku (developed by Crypton Future Media) coupled with Yamaha's NSX-1 sound chip technology (eVocaloid) were paired together in Gakken Education Publishing Company's Pocket Miku product.

About the same size as a Stylophone and similair useage with a wired stylus for the keyboard section. The Pocket Miku is a formant synthesizer used for vocal creations. Cool options and capabilities for the cost of the unit.

This is my first use in a light jam video with minimal use before this video in experimenting and getting used to the functions of the device.

In the video i have locked a 2 second loop in the Clouds module from Mutable instruments and this is being modulated by an lfo for the position cv and is in trigger mode being fed from the End of Cycle clock on a Make Noise Phonogene module. The Phonogene is also providing a drum sound to the 4MS Noise swash module which is the grungy sound heard here. Phonogene timing and speed is being messed with by a cv coming from a Flame knob recorder V1.

Live Pocket Miku track is being run through a developmental delay module from Synthrotek and is the only effect on the Miku in the video.

Please comment if you enjoyed this and want to see more of her.

Enjoy......."

Not Martenot : Experimental project of Onde Martenot like Pitch Controller


Published on Apr 9, 2016 karenevil

"I just built this for just my personal interest about Onde Martenot that is very rare electronic instrument, I never see the real one, never ever before. This is very basic prototype but it works fine with Gakken SX-150mk2. (I did not build "Touch" , left hand device yet ..)
It is much easier than Theremin to play :D"
