Made possible through a generous sponsorship by Korg USA, Inc

KINGSTON, NY, JANUARY 15, 2024– The Alan R. Pearlman Foundation in conjunction with Anthony Marinelli Music will be presenting “ARP 2600 Made Simple” demos at the Foundation’s NAMM booth (#9800) on Friday, January 26th at 2PM PST and Saturday, January 27th at 12PM PST.

Anthony Marinelli is a musician, composer, synthesist, producer, and conductor. He has recorded with Michael Jackson (most notably as a driving force on the Thriller album), Lionel Richie, Kenny Loggins, Supertramp, and many other notable artists. He has also scored countless feature films including Young Guns, written award-winning TV commercial music, and performed on blockbuster films such as WarGames, Stand By Me, Starman and more. His YouTube Channel, Anthony Marinelli Music, seeks to help musicians get the most out of their synthesizers. Recently, his YouTube videos have gone viral in and beyond the synth community. [some posted here]

During the “ARP 2600 Made Simple” demonstrations, Anthony will be present to program & demo the 2600, share stories, answer questions, and premiere a unique video featuring the 2600 “Blue Marvin”.

Attendees are encouraged to connect with the Foundation at the demo, or at any time during the show. Come by the booth to enter to win an FREE ARP 2600M synthesizer signed by Anthony Marinelli. The drawing will take place on Sunday, January 28th at 4:00pm.

Punk resonator . Minimal. Bliep crunchy noisy texture . Just perfect.

video upload by errorinstruments paul tas

You might remember the Punk Resonator from this previous teaser post.

via Error Instruments

"The Punk Resonator:

A Powerful and Experimental Standalone Synthesizer

Are you looking for a standalone synthesizer that can create unique and experimental sounds?

Look no further than the Punk Resonator

. This compact box, designed in brickie format,

can be used as a drum or baseline maker,

or to create strange and unusual noises.

It's a mix between the legendary Atari punk console from the 80s

and an analog circuit that is created on a 556 or 555 step generator and a digital resonator.

The Punk Resonator has three different options and a modulator,

with a 3 LFO square sin random.

The randomness works with the loop lock function that can be used as a sequencer

with eight or 16 steps, based on the chaos theory.

There is an attenuator to change the control voltage to the different voices or CV input

, and there is a Lopes gate to make sounds short or drum-like.

The Punk Resonator operates on 9 volts center positive

and has a mono out.

It is compatible with standalone equipment like eurorack, Korg, and more.

This powerful machine has a lot of options and is a small experimental,

synthesizer. It's not made for regular sounds,

but rather for something different and over the top.

In conclusion,

if you're looking for a unique and experimental

standalone synthesizer, the Punk Resonator is an excellent choice.

With its mix of analog and digital circuitry,

three different options, and modulator,

this powerful machine is capable of creating a wide range of sounds

that are sure to impress. So why not give it a try and see what kind of

inc power cable

and 3 paths cables

experimental sounds you can create?"

Designing Joy: an Interview with Korg.Berlin CEO Tatsuya Takahashi

via Perfect Circuit

"Tatsuya Takahashi, widely known as 'Tats', is a name that resonates loudly among sound synthesis enthusiasts and professionals. Over the last decade, his innovative mindset has been instrumental in resurrecting the popularity of analog synthesis, crafting a unique sonic landscape that blends tradition with novelty. Takahashi was been the creative engine behind some of Korg's most celebrated modern instruments, including the Monotron, the Volca series, and the Monologue and Minilogue synthesizers."

You can find the full interview at Perfect Circuit.

The following a few excerpts.

"I do have a guiding philosophy. I need to talk about the values that are present now, and how different they are from when I started. Obviously, I was naturally drawn to music tech, I have always loved circuits, instruments, and synthesizers. So initially, when I started working at Korg, which was my first "real" job after working in restaurants and bars, I was entirely focused on doing my job well.

As you mention, this period coincided with the revival of analog synthesizers, and I like to think that I played a role in that amongst other members of the industry. However, back then, it was more about doing well in my job and fulfilling my passion. The vision or the philosophy wasn't as defined then as it is today.

Now, at 40, I have a different perspective. I look back at the 23 products I worked on while in Tokyo and try to understand what made my job fulfilling. Apart from my affinity for design, art, music, and the very act of creating—of being and doing, I realized that there was also an important external element that stimulated me, and that was the joy that the users derived from my designs." "If you look at the MS-20, there were very few people involved in that project. The people responsible for the specs, the electrical design, the mechanical design, and the manual were probably the same two or three people. They just operated using general design principles.

Such an approach brings a certain consistency and purity to the product. Of course, if you are working on a complex product like a workstation keyboard, you need a large team to cover all the layers. However, I romanticize this early era of hardware design where everything was unified. If you look at an old Siemens mic pre, everything from the latch that takes it out of the rack to a three-dimensional puzzle of transformers and vacuum tubes to electrical, mechanical industrial design—all these considerations combined together. It is the same idea here, we try to break the boundaries between different disciplines and just see it as one thing."

"Korg.Berlin is nearly three years old, and we are a subsidiary of Korg Inc. Our function is to conduct R&D for new musical instruments. We diverge from the main office in that we have a different product planning procedure. We work directly with things, and we try in physical form what ideas might work. By the nature of that, we are a bit more explorative.

Our operation specifically aims to do things differently from the way it is currently done in Tokyo and Asia as a whole, including the manufacturing infrastructure. Having spent a wonderful decade building mainly analog synthesizers, it was important for me personally to do something different here. The team in Tokyo carry on with that work, and they are super good at it. So there is no point in us doing the same thing. That is why we need a different approach, a different technology, a different appeal, and consequently, we need a different branding. That is why we have our own logo, and we identify ourselves as Korg.Berlin. These are some of the things that make us different.

Looking into the future, we feel that some form of this acoustic synthesis that we unveiled at Superbooth this year will be at the core of our forthcoming products, or even multiple product lines."

AJH Synth Patch of The Week Videos

video uploads by AJH Synth Official

Videos by supoorting member, DreamsOfWires.

Playlist: 1. Patch of The Week: The Sonic XV's Wave Folder - So many tones from just 1 VCO's Triangle wave
'Sonic Arps': The Sonic XV Transistor Diode Ladder Filter has a built-in Wave Folder, and in this video I'm using an arpeggiator in random mode to show the many subtle flavours of sound it can achieve from just a simple triangle wave from a single VCO. I will also pull a huge variety of timbres from a sine wave in a similar fashion.
The filter is a re-creation and expansion of the VCF from the Musonics Sonic V (5) synth of the 1970's (predecessor of the Moog Sonic Six), and shares a similar character to that of the EMS Synthi and VCS3, also being early diode filters. Bearing that in mind you might expect it to produce aggressive tones and chaotic feedback, which it can do well enough, but you might not have expected that it can also be very subtle, organic and warm in character, particularly well-suited to melodic arps/patterns and percussive sounds. With the added wave shaping functionality that wasn't present on the original, along with 24dB and 6dB low pass modes, and band pass filtering, this module packs a lot of tone shaping into 14hp.

00:00 'Sonic Arps'
00:34 Introduction
01:01 Assembling the patch
01:39 Sounds & Settings
04:33 Patch Sheet

A PDF file of the patch can be downloaded here:

Patch notes:
Green dots show approximate pot and switch positions. Where a pot has two dots, this illustrates the range I move them during the video. Pots and switches that do not have green dots are not used in this patch, and should be left at their zero or off positions.
I'm using the VCA as a mixer so that I can use the outputs from both the BP and 6dB outputs of the Sonic XV. Notice in the video they are set at different volumes at different points depending on the sound - you will need to adjust this too, as different combinations of IN LEVEL, IN MIX, IN WAVE, and filter settings can make a significant difference to volume levels.
Modules used from left to right: Vintage Transistor Core VCO, Sonic XV, Contour Generators, Discrete Cascaded VCA.
2. Patch of the Week: 'Schulze School' - Melodic Eurorack performance + 'how-to' guide & patch sheet
This week's patch makes use of the V-Shape wave shaper/wave folder to sculpt the great analogue tone of the MiniMod VCO to create some delicate timbres that reminds us of Klaus Schulze's mesmerising sounds created on his sequencer-driven Moog modular synth systems in the 1970's. It also makes particular use of the Ring SM as a sub oscillator generator, and the rich tones of the Sonic XV diode filter.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for more 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides detailing a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, and each containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.
3. Patch of the Week: 'Singing Gemini' - Dual Analogue VCF as a Dual Sine Wave VCO How to & patch sheet
This patch uses each of the 2 analogue filters of the Gemini as a dual VCO, self-oscillating, so that they produce sine waves and can be sequenced melodically using the Korg SQ-1 or any analogue step sequencer. This guide shows you how to make this patch, along with a patch sheet at the end. It is one of the many ways you can use just a couple of Eurorack modules to make music, as modular synthesis can be rewarding even with a minimal gear list.
