"[Headphones On!] Did a little bit of Mooging today. Tomorrow I'm going to try some generative ambient with these two beautiful instruments."

Ekzil - "Fantasy dream" : Circuit Track + Volcas sample / keys / bass

video upload by Geoffroy AULAGNER

"for 2024 I decided to challenge myself to release a new song every month 😃
I'm already a little late, so I should release 2 songs this month 😅

I decided once again to use my Volca samples. I think it's my first video with the 3 Volcas !

This last song has many parts. I would really appreciate if you tell me what your favorite part is, and which part would need to be reworked for the "mastered" version 😉

I resumed a music that I had composed on Ableton Live some time ago. I decided to take it again in dawless format 🎹
You can listen the original one here :

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoy making it 🤩

Novation Circuit Tracks: Drums, pad, second melody
Volca Samples: second layer of drums / transitions
Volca Keys: Lead melody
Volca Bass: Bass
Korg NTS-1: reverb, chorus, build up with the noise oscillator

"JCS BN-1" 4-Bit Linear PCM Synthesizer - Part 2 (Finished)

video upload by blarrer20

"This video demonstrates the final version of a 4-bit Linear PCM synthesizer that I have designed and built over about two months. It makes use of mostly Soviet clones of 7400 and 74LS series TTL chips, with no microcontrollers involved. It has a 256 x 4 SRAM chip that allows the user to program whatever waveforms may be desired, with looping capability, and starting at whatever point desired. Most importantly, it is able to be controlled by an external source, for example a keyboard instrument. It also has a frequency doubler circuit.

Behringer Edge Modular Patches/Patterns/Samples No Talk Demo

video upload by Anton Anru

"Behringer Edge «Modular Grooves» is a collection of 50 patches + patterns: 17 Percs/Drums, 16 Basses, 17 Synths. It is dedicated to the modular vibe, loved for its analog warm sound, experimental attitude, rich opportunities, unique features and tones, and inspirational workflow.

💎 The presets feature various colors: warm, noisy, detuned, distorted, as well as mild, clean, soft, punchy, dark, bright, deep, and airy.
Some timbres are great to play the first role in tracks or jams, while others will work perfectly as additional parts.
You may use the patches as they are, but I strongly recommend tweaking the knobs to develop the timbre during your performance and get an exciting experience.

📥 Get the soundset:

💽 The soundset also includes 24/41000 WAV samples, accompanied by BPM and scale information. You can use them as they are, or you're free to resample, edit, and apply effects. These samples offer a versatile material for your experimentation.

📚 The soundset is presented in PDF format. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn a lot about the synth and discover its true depth.

🎧 There are audio examples of all patches inside the folder with the soundset.
To recreate these patches, you need up to 3 patch cords.

Tuning is an important part of the final result, but it’s quite difficult to depict the settings of oscillators frequencies and sequencer knobs as they are quite small, and even a tiny movement may shift the pitch. I tried to be as accurate as possible to draw these settings (the way they play in the audio examples), but don’t be upset if you can’t recreate the same melody. You may spend some time to catch the same melody, or you may use the settings as a starting point for your own melodic or percussive lines.

I used an external USB clock from Ableton Live. When external clock is used, TEMPO knob has no effect, so I left its value on some default position. Only tempo division (SCALE) changes the playback. If you use EDGE as a master clock device, change TEMPO to your taste.

🔔 The video contains demo tracks featuring these presets. I've added other samples, drums and pads, to create a complete musical context. The EDGE sequences can be quite complex, producing various timbres at once, like bass and percussion. To help you distinguish, I've marked the EDGE and ADDITIONAL SOUNDS with different colors.
These ADDITIONAL SOUNDS are not included in the soundset.

S&H In S&H trig S&H out

S&H In 8, S&H Trig 9, and S&H Out 10 are a set of sampling and holding circuits. S&H In 8 inputs the signal that needs to be sampled,S&H Trig 9 inputs the Trig signal that samples the input of S&H In 8, and the sampling result is held until the next Trig signal triggers a new sampling, and the result is output at S&H Out 10. When S&H In 8 is not plugged in, the Trig signal of S&H Trig 9 samples the Noise Out of 2, resulting in a nearly random sampling result. The sampling-hold function can be triggered by pressing button 5 when the S&H Trig 9 has no insertion line.

Noise Trig & Noise Out

Noise Trig 1 and Noise Out 2 are part of the Noise generator, which continuously outputs a Noise without any input, which is the result of the sound amplified many times after the breakdown of the Zener tube. If a wire is inserted into the Noise Trig jack, the Zener tube will stop the breakdown state. At this time, give a signal, which can be Trig, square wave or any other signal, only if it is higher than 3.3v, it will again break through the Zener tube, constantly reciprocating, changing the output effect of the Noise Out.

Offset Out

Knob 3 changes the output voltage value of Ofset Out 4, when the button is pressed 5.Ofset Out 4 will output voltage according to the position of the knob, release the button, and the output is terminated.

Aux in & out

Aux In 6 and Aux Out 7 are a set of envelope non-tunable Vcas triggered by button 5. Aux In6 can be an audio input or other signal input, press button 5,Aux In6 input will be output from Aux Out 7 after adding an envelope control. Noise Out2's noise output is added to AuxIn 6 when AuxIn 6 is not plugged in. This means that you can directly control the noise output in Aux Out 7 by pressing button 5."

"Today we take the beautiful Replay by Vongon out for a spin and also have a conversation about synthesis basics in honor of my five year synth-a-versary. Vongon really hit it out of the park with this instrument and--whether it's your first synth or your 10th-- there's a lot here to love."

VONGON REPLAY Polyphonic Synth & Arpeggiator | Can I write a synth-pop track with it?!

video upload by Ambient Endeavors

"Man, I just love gear that makes you approach writing differently. That reminds you how fun it can be to find new sounds and feels, explore new ways of composing. And today, the new Vongon Electronics REPLAY is doing that for me - a super fun, approachable, compact polyphonic synth and arpeggiator."

via Perfect Circuit

"The Replay is the first synthesizer offering from boutique pedal designers Vongon, offering a six-voice virtual analog sound engine with multi-mode arpeggiator. Inspired by beloved keyboard synths of the early 80s like the Roland Juno and Korg Polysix, the Replay faithfully delivers warm and lush vintage timbres in a compact package that drips with modern aesthetics and utility. In Replay, Vongon has struck an impressive balance between scope of features, user experience, and overall sound quality. The result is an instrument that sounds wonderfully rich and nostalgia-laden, with an interface that is easy to understand - perfectly approachable for a beginning synthesist, yet deep enough to inspire veteran wigglers to explore the edges of its capabilities.

Replay's front panel is incredibly straightforward, with simple controls for its primary functions conveniently accessible. Additional options are selected via the "secret menu" alt functions. At the heart of Replay's sound engine are multiple selectable waveforms for its primary oscillator, with ramp, square, triangle, and sine modes. Noise amount, pulse width modulation, and LFO pitch modulation offer further timbral manipulations before passing to the four-pole, low-pass filter. Highly resonant and warm, the filter includes modulation depth controls from the primary envelope, keyboard tracking, and the LFO. The VCA features options for maximum amplitude and modulation source. An organic and responsive ADSR envelope and the on-board LFO round out this straightforward voice, with flexible modulation routing options between the main controls and alt functions.

The multimode arpeggiator on the Replay opens up a variety of fun and engaging options for controlling the synthesizer voice. Latch and keyed modes, in addition to the three poly modes available on the alt functions, offer a variety of ways for creating snappy and spiraling arpeggios and fuzzy, morphing pads. Up/Down, order, and random modes provide further ways to organize pitch material. The alt functions allow the LFO to be clocked by the ARP speed, creating rhythmically modulated phrases that are a joy to get lost in.

All in all, the Vongon Replay delivers a premium virtual analog experience that feels streamlined and purpose-built for getting beautiful analog sounds quickly. With plenty of depth in sound color and just the right amount of tricks up its sleeve to keep you immersed in music making rather than menu diving, the Replay is sure to become a go-to instrument for lush pads and other classic synth timbres. Its physical design is beautifully simple, and the responsive feel of its Cherry MX keys invite playful interaction that is hard to put down. Of course, the Replay is a lovely source for running through Vongon pedals, creating an instant synthwave or soundtrack machine paired with an Ultrasheer or Polyphrase. If you're needing a straightforward synth with limitless sonic charm, the Vongon Replay is a wonderful choice.

Robust 🦸‍♂️ (Roland TR6S Rhythm Performer // S1 Tweak Synth // J6 Chord Synth) Synthwave

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"In the wake of my previous video, here's a synthwave-like jam featuring the same 3 little boxes from Roland: the TR-6S (Drums), the S-1 (Bass) and the J-6 (Arp/Chords) 😉

The track starts with a drum pattern from the TR-6S where I only used the TR-707 Analog Circuit Behavior engine (I.E. no static 707 samples), modeling the quirks and instabilities of the analog envelope and amplifier stages that came after the D/A converter 🤩 (the TR-707 was PCM based, but still had some randomness thanks to the analog part after the D/A converter).

I also used the DRIVE master effect of the TR-6S to add some dirt and energy (the DRIVE somehow also act like a compressor).

I recorded 3 DRUM patterns (2 main parts and 1 break) but as I used the probability, sub probability, parameter-lock features etc. the drum patterns seem to be longer than 1 bar!

Then come the BASS (played by the S-1, I recorded 4 patterns which are 4-bar long for this) and the ARP/CHORDS played by the J-6 (I decided not to sequence this instrument as I wanted to trigger it live and bring some organic fluctuations to the track 😊).

For the sync part, the TR-6S is sending MIDI to the S-1, and the S-1 is sending analog clock to the J-6 (there was no need to start the J-6's sequencer as the ARP/CHORDS were triggered in real-time)."

Corsynth Drum Modules + Transistor Mixer

video upload by NOISEBUG

"Corsynth - Massive Drums + Harmonic Mixer

The Corsynth drum collection for MU format modular sounds nothing short of massive! Especially when all drums are patched into the Moog-Style C111 mixer. Feed the mix back into itself and quickly witness the clean analog saturation get completely destroyed (in a harmonically satisfying kind of way)

The Corsynth drum modules are available now at Noisebug.

The DR-01 Bass Drum is the first of a new series of Corsynth modules dedicated to analog drum synthesis and it’s also the first module of this kind commercially available in MU format. Create a drum sounds from scratch using a modular synthesizer is always time and resourcing consuming. With the DR-01 you will save a lot of space, money and modules that can be used for other purposes. The DR-01 has all you need to create bass drums , toms a many other percussive sounds in just one single space. And thanks to the Tune CV input is even possible to use the DR-01 to create bass lines. Punchy techno drums, industrial drums, drum sounds of the firsts analog drum machines, FM sounds... With the DR-01 is really easy to get the sounds that you need at every moment. All the parameters in the module have been carefully chosen to be used in a drum synthesis context (envelope times, oscillator frequencies, oscillator waveform etc ). These are the DR-01 Bass Drum main features:
* A voltage controlled oscillator with dedicated CV input for tuning.
* A voltage controlled timbre circuit.
* A dedicated tune modulation envelope.
* An amplitude envelope with three different settings for the attack time.
It’s time to add drum sounds to your synth sequences! .

The DR-02 Snare Drum is the second module in the DR series dedicated to analog drum synthesis. This module is designed to synthesize electronic snare drum sounds of any kind. From the classic preset drum machines from the 70s to TR-XXX, electro snares, zaps... But thanks to its 12 knobs and 3 CV inputs the DR-02 Snare Drum can synthesize much more than snare drums, sounds like hit-hats, toms, cymbals , congas, FXs are also possible and even it can be used as an oscillator. The DR-02 is composed for two different sections , Head and Snare each of them with its own volume control. The Head section has two voltage controlled oscillators with a fixed frequency interval between them. One modulation envelope to modulate the oscillators tuning and one VCA with an AD envelope to control de decay of the snare head. The Snare section is composed by a noise generator , two voltage controlled filters connected in series ( one 12db resonant high pass filter and one 6db non- resonant low pass filter). One envelope to modulate the high pass filter cutoff frequency and one VCA with an AD envelope to control de decay of the snare.

The DR-03 Hi-Hats / Metal is the third module in the DR series dedicated to analog drum synthesis. It is designed to synthesize Hi-Hats and metal percussion like cowbells or cymbals and even FX. Three different voices are available at the same time Closed Hi-hat, Open Hi-hat and Metal plus a Hi-Hat mixed output .

Hi-Hats To synthesize a Hi-Hat there is a key element that defines the final result, the primary sound used to create it. The DR-03 has three possible sound sources , a white noise generator, a mix of six square wave oscillators and a mix of ring modulated square wave oscillators. These three sound sources, together with the VC Band Pass filter and the Low Pass Filter allow the DR-03 to create a wide range of hi-hat sounds. Another interesting feature is that the Open Hi-hat decay time is voltage controlled and it can be triggered independently or conditioned to the Closed Hi-hat. Metal The Metal sound is created using two ring modulated square wave oscillators and a VC Band Pass Filter. The frequency of one oscillator can be manually controlled and the other one has a fixed frequency. The variable oscillator can modulate the cutoff of the BPF to create metallic FM sounds.

Fun Times with CV & Gate

video upload by Circuit 3

"If you know synths and are a bit of an expert this video isn't for you. But: are you synth curious? Grab a drink and make yourself comfortable. Watch me learn how to use some of my synth equipment. My goal was to use only "old school" voltages to control the equipment. CV stands for 'control voltage' and gate means a pulse of electricity which can be used to cause a note to start playing or to tell an electronic instrument what the tempo is. If you liked this ... buy my music!

If you'd like to hear what happened when I pressed record and improvised live?"

Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Techtronix

video uploads by Isotonik Studios


"Ever wanted a real sounding piano Patch on the Circuit tracks? Or maybe an acoustic guitar bass, that could pluck more if you hit it harder, and yet retain its low end autheticity. Keys brings an end to this search allowing you create realistic sounding acoustic music such as rnb and soul and a lot more. no more trying to work out a way to get a piano in your sample pool.

Using old synthesis techniques such as La Synthnesis, Freqency modulation, and slight wavetable manipulation, it is possible to create the slight nuances that make things resonate in an authentic way and play naturally on a keyboard or circuit Keys does this in order to bring you traditional sounding acoustic instruments.

Featuring a huge amount of authentic sounding instruments in the patches and crackle samples, aswell as chord samples. This pack makes it very easy to create your own version of an nostalgic track in any genre and add that flavour to sound.

With over 16 sessions boasting 9 different genres, Keys leaves no stone unturned transforming the circuit tracks in to something beyond what it was intented for. you will find many new techniques in the sessions such as shifting steps, swing, a new scale probability trick if you can find it!?!?

Velocity sensitivity is key here, please make sure to turn it on.

You will find that if you play softly on bass guitar, it is more subby, but if you play hard or programme in loud notes you will here the twang. similarly on all live instruments, velocity plays a big part.

Korg MS-50 Textures: 8 variations on a generative patch #korgms50

video upload by Dr. Kunz

"Generative patch that uses the ring modulator as a voltage controlled amplifier and various modulation signals from the noise generator, modulation generator (LFO) and envelope generators. At a certain point in the preparation I had to use my self-made V-trigger/S-trigger converter (built inside a jack) because of an electric interference, maybe a lifted ground, that made the EG1&2 fire for nothing and negated some interesting patch combination between modules. I will have a closer look at the circuit and try to fix it in future, for the moment I will use the MS-50 as it is.

The video consists of four chapters with basically the same wiring but different settings, anyway the wiring list is presented at the beginning of each chapter.

At some point I think I kicked the tripod, as a result the MS-50 panel is partially out of focus.

Effects: EH4800 Small Stone (Nano) phase shifter, Korg SDD-3000 delay, dbx 166 peak compression.

Fragile 🍃 (Roland TR-6S Rhythm Performer // S-1 Tweak Synth // J-6 Chord Synth)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Here's a 2x 2-Minute jam featuring 3 little boxes from Roland: the TR-6S (Drums), the S-1 (Bass and Arp) and the J-6 (Pads) 🐺

I've recorded a few patterns of each of the 3 instruments which are being chained up live in this jam.

On the DRUMS side played by the TR6S, there is quite a lot going on: I mainly used the Analog Circuit Behavior and FM Engines for the drum sounds. I used a few of the real time performance tools available: STEP LOOP, FILL IN, MASTER FX (Fuzz). I also took advantage of the polymectri capabilities of the sequencer, where the KICK's sequence length is different from the rest of the pattern (on the first part, it's a 6-step sequence playing, and on the last part, a 5-step sequence 😉).

For the BASS & ARP parts, I used the S1 (which fortunately is polyphonic 😃). I also played with its integrated 'Riser' effect for the transitions.

I recorded 3 patterns on the J-6, among which the last one is being syncopated thanks its 'phrase type' feature (a bit like an arpeggiator effect). The J-6 is being synced to the S-1 by their analog clocks (through the translucent cable, where you can see a little red LED lightening up with each clock pulse coming into the J-6)."
