Mother Source by Miclop


Mother Source Trailer
Mother source "Sound demo concept"
Mother source " Demo presets"
Mother Source Tutorial

"The Mother source concept is based on the exchange of sources on the included presets, these sources are designed to generate a new sound on the same preset.
Imagine that we have a bass preset with a short Decay and a devastating distortion. Now, just by changing the source, we will obtain a new sound that, maybe, we like more or that maybe it adapts better to what we are looking for, so a single bass preset generates more than 130 different basses in a blink of an eye. | more information:"

Steinberg Pro16 sequencer from '86 | Grandmother of Cubase

Espen Kraft

"From 1984 to 1986 Steinberg (Research) developed a sequencer for the Commodore 64, a sequencer that would be known as the Pro16. Which in turn evolved into the well known Pro24 for the Atari ST platform a couple of years later, which in turn saw the birth of Cubase, the mother of all Cubase versions we have now.
Steinberg also built their own MIDI interface cartridge for the C64.

The Pro16 is very rudimentary by today's standards, but still a very fast, easy and fun program to use to flesh out ideas for new songs.

Huge thanks to Chris Wareham for the donation of both the program and MIDI interface for the C64!

The program itself can be found online and run from a floppy emulator for the C64."

1997 Propellerhead ReBirth (RB-338) Techno Micro Composer "Believe the unbelievable" Brochure

You can find the full brochure and a write-up over at Retro Synth Ads.

"Propellerhead ReBirth (RB-338) Techno Micro Composer 'Believe the unbelievable' four page colour brochure from 1997.

Full disclosure - I'm a huuuuuge Reason fan. I have a great auto-load template set up that opens with two TBL3 303 emulators, and two Kongs - one with 808 sounds and one with 909 sounds. Great for when I'm on the road. Or in bed.

So, you can't be surprised that I was a huge ReBirth fan way back when as well."

Steinberg Adds Support for ELK

You might remember the ELK Music Operating System from this prevoius post. In a nutshell, "ELK allows manufacturers to move away from dedicated chips and use standard off-the-shelf CPUs, with significant improvements in terms of user experience, performance and scalability - combined with unprecedented time-to-market advantages and potential new post-sales revenues from software, content and services for their devices."

It also supported the ability to host JUCE and VsT 2.x and 3.x plugins. That integration, however, was implemented by ELK. With this announcement, Steinberg is hosting the integration.

I asked ELK how this differed from the prior announcement and my contact stated: "Before WE (ELK/MIND Music Labs) were the ones working on integrating VST support in ELK (i.e. making ELK "VST compatible") - potentially with the need of future reworks, patches, etc. and no guarantee of support to future VST evolutions.

Since today, it is Steinberg that by adding ELK-related elements to its standard ensures future-proof full compatibility between VST and ELK."

And: "This means ELK will be the first available embedded platform to officially support all plug-ins developed under VST 3 specifications, allowing manufacturers to offer their customers access to an enormous range of VST instruments and processors, and making it extremely easy for software developers to release VST-based software, sounds and effects on hardware musical instruments."

The following is the official press release on the announcement:


With the release of version 3.6.11, Steinberg's Virtual Studio Technology plug-in format will natively support the integration of Mind Music Lab’s ELK operating system, allowing VST-based plug-ins to run seamlessly in ELK-powered musical instruments and audio processors.

October 23, 2018 – Stockholm, Sweden

Today MIND Music Labs announced that version 3.6.11 of Steinberg's VST (Virtual Studio Technology) natively supports ELK integration.

ELK, an OS designed specifically for use in embedded systems such as hardware musical instruments and audio processors, will be the first such platform to officially support all plug-ins developed under VST 3 specification. This will allow embedded hardware manufacturers who develop products with the ELK OS to offer their customers access to an enormous range of VST instruments and processors.

Essentially, ELK's integration with VST will make it extremely easy for software developers to release VST-based software, sounds and effects on Powered by ELK hardware musical instruments - the first of which, DVMark's Smart Multiamp, is scheduled for release in early 2019.

“We were very impressed by the performance and stability that the ELK Music Operating System has to offer. And this is the prominent reason that we decided for it to become the first platform for hardware musical instruments within the VST domain,” commented Yvan Grabit, senior developer and tech lead at Steinberg.

"It is an honor for us to be officially recognized as partners for embedded use by Steinberg. For the past 20 years, VST plug-ins have been the de-facto standards for desktop-produced music, and we are ready to help VST become the standard for smart musical instruments and audio processors as well." said Michele Benincaso, CEO of MIND Music Labs.

About MIND Music Labs:
MIND Music Labs develops music technologies that change the way musicians create, record and share music. Among the people who believed in MIND Music Labs are Jacob Key - former VP at Warner Music - Ludvig Linge - co-founder of The Astonishing Tribe, bought by Blackberry in 2010 - and Jordan Rudess - Dream Theater keyboardist and music tech entrepreneur.

About Steinberg:
Steinberg has been providing award-winning, technologically advanced music and media production products for musicians and producers of music, video and film since 1984. Today, Steinberg is one of the world's largest manufacturers of music and audio software and hardware, as well as license-management and copy-protection systems. The Steinberg range of products has long since found world renown in all aspects of modern digital audio processing.

Behind the Scenes on Steinberg's HALion - An Interview with Head Developer Michael Ruf

Supporting MATRIXSYNTH member, Synthmorph, wrote in to let us know they have an interview up with Michael Ruf, the head developer of HALion. You can find the full interview here.

A short excerpt on the beginning of HALion:

"Since I joined Steinberg only in 2007, I cannot really tell you much about the development before that time, but when we set up the new HALion team in 2007, we were completely aware that the existing code basis had evolved over quite a long time and had come to a point where it was rather difficult to keep up with new technologies like the transition to 64-bit computing. So, the decision was made to develop the whole HALion engine from the ground up, allowing us to create a really modern, modular and flexible engine as the foundation for our future instrument line."

Here's an interesting bit of synth history.  Atari ST programming software for the Roland D-50 by Steinberg. I believe this is the first time it has ever been featured on the site.  Steinberg was founded in 1984, the Atari ST came out in 1985, and the D-50 was available from 1987 - 1989. This software isn't listed on Steinberg's list of released software on wikipedia.
