Who becomes silverware first? - 10 minute LFO filter sweep and semi-generative Eurorack jam

video upload by thesrabbit

"This sonic experiment was inspired by the Dreadbox Erebus LFO having a whopping 10-minute long cycle time. Therefore, I thought it might be fun to run that LFO into every single filter I have with a CV input, including big analog polys with a VCF control input on the back intended for expression pedals. The honorary VCFs include: 2x Roland System-500 521, G-Storm Electro SH-2 and SH-5, Dreadbox Erebus, Oberheim OB-X8 (OB-X SEM LP mode), Sequential/Oberheim OB-6, Roland Juno-6.

Interestingly the filters on the big polys don't open all the way. I assume this has something to do with the inputs being calibrated for expression pedals rather than Eurorack CV. According to my oscilloscope, the Erebus LFO range is -5v and +5v. This is pretty typical for Eurorack. I set the cutoff at about 50% for all the filter modules. This seemed to work perfectly. But I was not able to do that with the polys. With the cutoff at 50%, the filters would open up all the way, but they wouldn't close nearly enough. I had to bring the cutoff completely down, and as a result, the filters on the polys wouldn't open up all the way. I did alternate takes where I walked around and tried to smoothly nudge each one up in order to get the filters fully open, but that was a disaster. In retrospect, I could have set up a one-shot MIDI LFO to do this and triggered it once at the right moment, but I already had enough things to worry about.

One of my audio interfaces is dead or dying, and it keeps ruining takes and sometimes crashes Logic. I finally turned it off and went with my lone Focusrite Scarlett 8i6, which has always been solid. But now I had an extra synth without an input and I wanted to have the polys on their own tracks so that I could blend them in with the Eurorack stuff to taste. And there's no possible way I could overdub since the whole point is to have one LFO sweeping all of the filters at the same time. I ended up resorting to an old 1989 JVC cassette deck to record the OB-6. So that shot at the opening of the video is legit. There's such a big wall of sound here that it's impossible to tell if it ended up adding any saturation. It definitely added some hiss and crackles but that's fine in this context. The cassette itself is ancient, cheap consumer grade, 60 minutes per side. I ended up recording over some 90's black metal that had been there since, well, the 90's.

To add to the grit and grime, I intentionally ran the filters from the Eurorack straight into the audio interface, bypassing the typical flow through VCAs. Ok, fine, I totally forgot about the VCAs, but it sounded extra dirty, so I didn't stress out too much. I certainly wasn't going to power everything back on, tune everything up and do another take because of it.

Obviously when the filters are closed or nearly closed for several minutes, there needs to be something to fill that gap. That's where the generative stuff comes in. There's 3 different sample and hold circuits feeding different things, including back into themselves in one case. Some voltage is running through different logic gates in conjunction with other, steady LFOs. Since I'm out of filters, the sound consists of pink noise through a VCA, triggered at random by a very short decay envelope. This runs into a recovery tape delay module, that gives sort of a slapback effect.Then there's a single oscillator, pitch controlled by another S/H circuit run through a quantizer and then running into the spring reverb tank. It's also triggered by the same random voltages triggering the noise hits. Then there's the Mutable Instruments Plaits, making the plinky plonky sounds, again everything triggered at random. It's running into the majestic Calsynth Typhoon.

The last thing to note is that the Erebus LFO also acts like an automated fader to increase and decrease the level of the VCA where all the rhythmic sounds are running through. I simply inverted the signal of the LFO output to do this. As the filters open up, the VCA level diminishes. When the filters fully close, the VCA level increases to maximum.

Last last thing. That knob twisting near the beginning isn't for sci-fi FX, though that's an added bonus. I was simply trying to get the LFO back to its "starting position." I didn't quite succeed. I don't believe the Erebus has any sort of LFO triggering mechanism to help with this. All good though.

Buchla TipTop + Strymon Starlab // More than just blipblops

video upload by Dexba

"I wanted to be more regular with the uploads, but it turned out life always gets in the middle. But here we are: the most analog waves coming from the Buchla by TipTop Audio lineup crashing against the digital Strymon Starlab shore.
The setup is comprised of a double 258t (oscillator), one of which is producing the chords you've heard at the beginning, while the other is on modulation duty.
The main interest of the patch was going into the Starlab already in stereo, so the two channels of the 257t are used as mixers between Left Osc + Sum and the other Right Osc + Sum, in order to have stereo bouncing around more as an accent, rather than being too abrupt, all of this controlled by the S/H coming from the other oscillator going into the 266t. The infamous 292t gets to work both as a summing mixer and a normal VCA.
The extra two voices you hear (the higher one and the very low one) are from the oscillators used for the S/H process, which I tuned to be useful twice too!
Hope you'll enjoy it! 🧡"

Korg Poly Ensemble P 60-Key Polyphonic Orchestral Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Korg Polyphonic Ensemble P (PE-1000) is a preset-based analog orchestral instrument synthesizer. It was released in 1976 and manufactured in Japan. The Polyphonic Ensemble P was one of Korg's first polyphonic instruments. It has seven preset sounds, including: String, Pipe Organ, Brass, Piano, Electric. Each key has its own oscillator, which allows detuning between notes to thicken the sound. The Polyphonic Ensemble P has 61-voice polyphony. The Polyphonic Ensemble P also has:

A high pass filter
Peak L and peak H, which are basically a resonance for the low pass and high pass filter
A soft knob, which softens the sound
An expand knob
The Polyphonic Ensemble P was created before the development of VCOs. It has a limited sound palette, but seems to have a lot of sound sculpting possibilities."

Syntrx 2 Patching Tip - Random Clock

video upload by Bata

"Showing how you can use one of the outputs on the Erica Synths Syntrx 2 to send out low frequency voltages to the envelope follower. The manual doesn't talk about the outputs being DC coupled or mentioning input 1 being DC coupled but low frequency waves with sharp edges will trigger the synth through input 1. So the patch is OSC 3 Saw to Output 2, Output 2 to Input 1, Set input 1 switch to gate, Send S/H to Oscillator 3, Set Random switch to Gate. This works with the Trapezoid as well or both at the same time. Mixing in audio from the pan knob of output 1 will make the gate detector go crazy at the right settings. Have fun!"

The Game-Changing Roland Jupiter 4 Arpeggiator: A Must-Hear Demo

video upload by Andy Whitmore

"Unveiling the Hidden Power of Roland Jupiter 4 Arpeggiator
This video demonstrates the sound and features of the Roland Jupiter-4 analog synthesizer. Enjoy!

The audio is DIRECT, 100% DRY, & IN STEREO - You are hearing the raw audio as it comes directly from the synthesizer. NO post processing (Effects, EQ, or Dynamics) whatsoever.

The Roland Jupiter-4 is a very strong, agressive, massive, but also sweet sounding synth. The sound is really incredible for only one VCO with one Sub-VCO. In this this Demo you will listen to this wide range of sounds.

The Roland JP-4 came out 1978, mine is from Nov. 1979 with the later filter board.

The great features of the JP-4 are:
- extremely fast envelopes
- ultra fast LFO and also slow LFO to get FM sounds and very slow filter sweeps as well
- fantastic sounding filter with ultra fat and sweet self resonance
- stereo chorus, not so strong like in the Juno 6/60, but very musical
- nice arpeggiator with triggering by a sequencer or drum machine
- random S/H filter modulation
- fantastic versatile bender board
- you can trim the 4 voices and slightly detune them on the back of the unit to achieve a really fat sound
- polyphonic portamento

Watch me bring that sound back to life!🎹🕺 "

Some pics of the inside.

"Very rare, 4 digit serial number (8640) Rocky Mountain Instruments 368x. This is a chance to own a never-been-emulated electric piano just like one Ray Manzerek played with the doors. While not yet as famous as other keyboards from the era like the fender Rhodes it Vox continental, the RMI was nearly as prolific featuring in everything from country rock ballads with Steve Earles band to Broadway being one of Sondheims own early electric piano choices.

This example is in fully working order, though showing signs of corrosion around the leg bases and some key posts. there is general wear and tear as to be found on a previous session instrument And a few keys seem slightly out of tune, though this reduces with proper warm up time."

Sequential Introduces New Trigon-6 Desktop Module

Following Sequential's desktop adaptations of their classic keyboard line-up, the Trigon-6 is now available in desktop form.

Press release follows:

Introducing the New Trigon-6 Desktop Module

Ultimate Polyphonic Power
San Francisco, CA — Today, Sequential announced the desktop module of the powerhouse Trigon-6 polyphonic synthesizer, their modern take on a true-classic analog design. The desktop version is a compact and portable instrument that still packs in all the sound generation capabilities of its formidable keyboard sibling. It features three oscillators per voice and a ladder filter that has been updated with a dedicated drive and feedback control, making it easy to go from silky and smooth to bold and crunchy with the twist of a knob. This versatility makes Trigon-6 the perfect companion for your studio or live performance.

The desktop module is more than just a smaller version of the keyboard Trigon-6. It’s an expressive and potent instrument that delivers warm, organic, analog sound in its own right. “Desktop module designs continue to be a popular choice with our players,” said CEO David Gibbons. “We spent a little extra time on MIDI polyphonic expression capabilities as we finalized this one, in anticipation of people pairing it up with some of the awesome MPE-capable controllers on the market. We’re looking forward to hearing what people will do with it!”

Three is a Magic Number
The Trigon-6 desktop module offers a classic three-oscillator synth architecture with an enhanced ladder filter, inspired by some of the most iconic analog synths of all time. The three oscillators provide a rich and flexible sound source, with familiar waveforms from triangle to more complex saws, and variable-width pulse. You can mix and match the oscillators to create intricate harmonics, detune them for thick chorusing effects, or sync oscillator 2 for hard-edged growls.
Meanwhile, the ladder filter completes the heart and soul of the Trigon-6, providing a smooth and musical response that can shape your sound from creamy and mellow to mangled and aggressive. The filter has a 2/4-pole switchable slope and adjustable resonance that can add a distinctive peak or even self-oscillate for screaming leads and sci-fi effects. And with Drive and Feedback engaged, get ready to melt some faces!

Greater Expression Through MPE
Now Trigon-6 lets you shape every note with MPE. MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) is an extension of MIDI that allows compatible devices to control multiple parameters of individual notes within MPE-enabled synths. This provides for more expressive instrumental performances, as each note can have its own pitch bend, filter cutoff, amplitude, and other modulations. You will be able to bend, slide, vibrato, swell and morph your sounds with unprecedented feeling and subtlety. Experience the classic 3-oscillator, ladder filter sound like never before with Trigon-6, the groundbreaking polyphonic analog synth that lets you truly perform every nuance of your music with MPE.
The Trigon-6 synthesizer is a testament to Dave Smith’s legacy and innovation. It has all the best qualities of Sequential’s acclaimed Prophet-6 and OB-6 synths — 6-voice polyphony, unrivaled playability, and easy programmability. It
also features a global LFO, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and a dual effect processor with chorus, ring modulation, flanger, phaser, delay, and reverb effects. Don’t miss this opportunity to get your hands on the Trigon-6 desktop module, the polyphonic power-synth that fits your studio, your music, and your life.

Trigon-6 desktop module weighs approximately 10.9 lbs. (4.95 kg) and measures 22.00” L x 8.45” W x 4.54” H (55.88 cm x 21.46 cm x 11.53 cm).

Trigon-6 desktop module is available for pre-order now, with a US MAP price of $2,499. Shipping worldwide in August. For more information about the Trigon-6 desktop module, visit us at:

About Sequential
Originally launched in 2002 as Dave Smith Instruments, Sequential was founded by legendary electronic instrument designer Dave Smith. His many accomplishments included the creation of the Prophet-5 — the world’s first fully programmable polyphonic synthesizer — and his legacy as the primary driving force behind MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). Now helmed by CEO David Gibbons, an audio and music industry veteran, Sequential creates innovative synthesizers with the highest level of craftsmanship and care for discerning musicians around the world.
