GearFest UK 2024 PWM Mantis Hits UK

video upload by sonicstate

"We caught up with Paul Whittington at GearFest UK 2024, held at Tile Yard. Paul introduced the latest production unit of Mantis, which is now available in the UK music stores starting Monday. The unit includes quad and duophonic modes, along with new firmware that allows for syncable arpeggios and LFOs. Paul mentioned an upcoming review and expressed excitement about the detailed insights expected from it. Overall, Mantis is now fully featured and ready for its users.

In our conversation, Paul shared his favorite patches, particularly highlighting one titled "Beach Dazed" which imitates the sound of the ocean. He demonstrated various patches and explained the different modes of the instrument, including mono, duo, and quad modes, each offering unique setups of the filters and voice paths. The MSRP is set at £1349, and there is a 10% discount for GearFest attendees. Paul concluded by emphasizing the melodic advantage of having multiple voices in the instrument."

Sequential Circuits Six-Trak with Stereoping controller

video uploads by batchas

Use the player controls to skip around. Some great demos in the 2nd video.

"I made a one hour session yesterday to check the Six-Trak that I am selling with the Stereoping controller and recorded 12 videos, trying different settings.
As usual after trying a machine I didn’t play for so long, I think I should keep it cause it sounds so
I checked and cleaned everything, though I have no space anymore to keep this.
It’s a shame having instruments and not playing them. That’s why I’m letting go on several machines I do never use."

Serge Medusa / Subharmonic Oscillator Impressions

video upload by Serge Modular | Random*Source

"Medusa combines two of Serge's latest inventions - the Subharmonic Oscillator and the new VCFX filter - both designed by Serge in 2023 - to carry you to unchartered sonic territories. The Subharmonic Oscillator comprises 7 voices (pulse waves), each voice providing pulse width modulation or subharmonic division as well as 1V/Octave inputs and an individual output. The precision of these voices (with excellent 1V/Oct tracking and temperature stability) in combination with a global Spread control and various FM inputs opens up an enormous sonic range from massive unisono sounds to dissonant, orchestra-style textures. Here a couple of patches using Medusa as sound source with Edelweiss III and sometimes a MicroFreak as keyboard and/or an SEQ8 sequencer.

Dr. Endo explores LIVEN Ambient Ø - #4

video upload by SONICWARE

"LIVEN Ambient Ø | Soundscape Synthesizer

Chris Lody (@ChrisLodyMusic) , a sound wizard I genuinely trust, created an amazing sound of the Indian instrument, Tanpura. It was so beautiful that I had to jam with it today. I thought the tanpura sound would also fit perfectly with the world of LIVEN Ambient Ø.

In the second half, I got creative by grouping every 4 steps and making the sequences trigger randomly.

Yu Endo

サウンド魔術師のChris Lody (@ChrisLodyMusic) がインドの楽器タンプーラのサウンドを作ってくれて、それがとても素敵で、ChrisのタンプーラサウンドとLIVEN Ambient Øの世界観が良い感じにマリアージュするんじゃないかとジャムってみました。

Ambient Sound Design: Sumu's 64-Channel Pulses Module

video upload by Madrona Labs

"This quick exploration by Sheryar shows how to bring depth and movement to ambient sounds using Sumu's 64 channels of rhythmic modulation via it's Pulses module. Perfect for Sumu newcomers or sound designers looking to expand their toolkit.

We'll cover:

Setting up the Pulses module
Modulating Partials and Space
Shaping envelopes for playhead behavior
Using the dual rhythm generators
Tweaking width and center controls to target specific partials"

First experiment with PolyNodes - instrument.

video upload by Richard Devine

"PolyNodes extracts and analyzes the temporal properties of the input sound and maps them in a 3D space to create a visible geometric structure."
