OP-1 Field as an ambient machine! 💭

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"This is a simple recipe for soundscaping with a great little machine! ✨

- Turn on an OP-1 Field
- Record 3 different synth tape tracks, then lower the pitch by an octave
- Add a long Mother reverb
- Open Ableton Live
- Add a Soundtoys Crystallizer - going into a Valhalla Supermassive
- Play random notes on the last 4 tape tracks of the OP-1 Field

But with headphones, please! 🎧"

Jamuary n.03 | Novation Peaks into Beads | Eurorack and Synthesizer 📻

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"I absolutely love Novation Peak.
This AWESOME synth is able to create any sound I think of.

In this jam, a very simple loop is previously recorded, and then played, into Beads, who is modulating itself using its brilliant attenurandomizers.
Then the magic.
I played some chords with the Peak using its nice sounding reverb (and delay too) to create a dreamy soundscape.
In Ableton I simulated a cassette recorder with my beloved SketchCassette plugin.

So we just have to listen.

Please wear headphones for the best quality. 🎧

(I've recently noticed some 'sample rate errors', such as high frequency pops and glitches. but I like them, I'm sorry not to be sorry..)"

Jamuary n.02 | Fender Stratocaster meets Beads and Desmodus Versio | Eurorack Guitar Jam 🎸

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"These days I had some time to play my guitar , in order to explore my new pedalboard and get it to communicate with my modular system.

The idea behind this simple jam is very simple.
A loop recorded inside Beads is processed by Melotus Versio (double granulation, hell yeah!) while I'm playing some major/suspended chords through Desmodus Versio.

Here is the path for the guitar:

- Fender Stratocaster AM Standard 1992
- Effettidiclara ORLA
- MXR Analog Chorus
- JHS Morning Glory
- Effettidiclara PETRA
- Digitech DOD Rubberneck
- Chase Bliss Audio MOOD
- Neunaber Immerse
- Strymon Iridium

Sometimes simple things are the best ways to express feelings.

Hope you enjoy.

Headphones, please. 🎧"

Jamuary n.01 | Just Friends, Rings and Desmodus Versio | Eurorack Western story 📜

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Hellow 2023 :)
#jamuary is already going on and I'm ready to share with you my first western-ish soundscape!

So basically I'm controlling Just Friends and Rings v/Oct with Ableton, using Shuttle Control as a USB to CV Converter.
Ableton Push is the main MIDI Controller, providing notes, arpeggios.
Just Friend is in FLOOM mode (LOVE IT!), its amp section is controlled by Zadar and modulated by Stages with some LFOs. Desmodus and Ruina Versio are the FX's for this main voice.
In the background, Rings is simulating a sort of acoustic guitar, reverberated and granulated by Monsoon.
A noisy/tape loop added in Ableton as a finishing touch.

Hope you enjoy!

Headphones as always! 🎧"

Mannequins Just Friends as a Sound Source ✨ | Eurorack Ambient Jam

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Just Friends in FLOOM mode is incredible.
I’d like to spend few words for this really simple patch.
JF 1v/oct receives some randomic cv from uO_c, randomly triggered by my beloved @busy Pamela’s New Workout.
Plaits in chords mode (WTF) modulates the FM input on JF (WTF pt.2).
Monsoon for the long awesome reverb, modulated by a rampy LFO from @mutable Stages (Position).

Sometimes keeping it simple is the key.

Headphones. 🎧"

Monome Norns Barcode + VCA🎚| Eurorack Synthesizers Jam

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"This is about VCA modulation. 🎛

How much I love changing with my hands the level on the stereo image using differente LFOs.
And this is what I’m doing here!
Belong from Barcode script is sending the main sawtooth-ish noisy drone sound to the entire system, heavy modulated by two different LFO’s from @mutable Stages. @noiseeng Desmodus Versio is always at the end of my patches, because of its incredible power in creating the magical atmosphere I always need.

That’s it, simple but effective.
Hope you enjoy!

Headphones as always! 🎧"

Welcome to the Norns 🎛 | Monome Eurorack Jam

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Finally, I own the most inspiring machine I ever met since the past three years. Monome did an awesome work with the Norns, can't wait to explore it in depth!
Let's dive into this first soundscape
Here you can hear "Fall", an incredibly sounding script from @Ambalek _: pink noises and triangle waves meet the magical flavor of @Noise Engineering Desmodus Versio, creating the main atmosphere of the jam.
@mutableinstruments Plaits is going into Beads, both modulated by Monsoon Looping Dealy for some juicy little distant grooves on the stereo field.
I just love this combo.

Wear your headphones, please. 🎧"

Eurorack Chords and Groove 🏄🏼‍♂️

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Chords and Groove 🏄🏼‍♂️
There’s a lot going on here.

Basically, @qubitelectronix Bloom is sending CVs to the @mutableinstruments Tides V/oct IN, acting as the 'chord machine'.
Beads is sampling something I can’t remember tbh, transforming it in this glassy sound and receiving modulation on Shape and Time from Stages: this means groove.
Rings and Monsoon for some tasty stereo movement (old but gold friends)
@noiseeng Desmodus Versio is, as always, the captain of my ambient-washy sea.

Enjoy with headphones. 🎧"

Plants play Modular 🪴 w/ SYMBIOTIC

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"I’m very happy to introduce you SYMBIOTIC :)

Made by the awesome guys and girls from @spad_electronics , this is a little but powerful utility that converts plants biodata in midi or cv signal! (It also functions as a midi to cv converter). It has a sensitivity knob that you can use to choose the amount of received signal and a setting button allows you to change some interesting stuff (threshold, MIDI channel, note scale and LED brightness).In this way, you just need some cables to easily jam with your plants by just connecting SYMBIOTIC to them!

So in this simple but effective patch, my gorgeous monstera is sending a mutating trigger through SYMBIOTIC to the @qubitelectronix Bloom, who is then sending its 'always-changing' sequence to the @mutableinstruments Plaits V/oct input.
Some lfos from Stages are modulating Data Bender.
Monsoon in Clouds mode is creating the right ambient for this biometric interaction. ✨🌱

Headphones as always. 🎧"

SYMBIOTIC is available on on eBay, Tindie, and Etsy.

Diy kits symbiotic biodata sonification midisprout

generate music and listen to your plants with our new symbiotc biodata sonification board, Just attach the electrodes to the leaves of your favorite plant or your skin or any living thing and the fluctuations of the galvanic conductance will produce MIDI/cv notes. sampling the pulse widths and identifying the fluctuations will generate control messages and MIDI notes. You can set the threshold, the scale, the midi channel and the brightness of the leds. you will only need a plant, a 9v battery and a synth (hardware or software) and you are ready to listen to them. if you buy the diy kit we send you the assembly pdf"

Tape Eurorack Modular Jam 📻

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"That’s why I fell in love with my modular system: easiness and complexity. A constant research for this conflicting dualism. With sounds and notes.

In this jam, a simple triangle waves from @mutableinstruments Plaits meets the beautiful @noiseeng Desmodus Versio, who introduces Stages and Tides as modulations. @qubitelectronix Bloom is the guidance.
@arturia_official Tape Mello Fi gives this cassette mood to the entire family.
Hope you enjoy them. 📻

Headphones recommended. 🎧"

Modular Iteration ✨

Modular Iteration 1/3 ✨ video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Finally I had some time to study my newest eurorack system! This video is about some Mutable Instruments Plaits waves heavy modulated by @Qu - Bit Prism and Data Bender, plus some helps from @Noise Engineering Versio. ✨

Wear your headphones for detailed audio. 🎧"

Modular Iteration 2/3 ✨

"So I realized another soundscape with the same system, using different actors.
Here you will find a @Qu - Bit Surface modulated by Mutable Instruments Tides on the @2hp Modular VCA in order to create different envelope rhythms. It goes straight inside the Prism for some filtering and, at the end of its path, the lonely Surface meets a @Noise Engineering Desmodus Versio creating the magic space. ✨
@Arturia Augmented Voices helps me with some basses added in post.

Wear your headphones for bass and detailed audio. 🎧"

Modular Iteration 3/3 ✨

"Here we are! Last jam, I’ll do it short: Mutable Instruments Rings is sequenced by @Qu - Bit Bloom and modulated by Tides. Monsoon is freezing a note coming from Rings and Data Bender is giving aaall the rhythms to the system. @Noise Engineering Desmodus Versio adds the timeless space, as always.

Headphones = details. 🎧"
