System 55 - 911 envelope ecosystem


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This video will give a detailed review of the “envelope generator ecosystem” in the Behringer System 55 modular synthesizer. In particular, we’ll be looking at some interesting use cases creating complex envelope shapes using multiple 911 envelope generators and the 911A dual trigger delay module. These complex patches allow you to move beyond a basic Minimoog patch.

System 55 - Top 5 Missing Features


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This video identifies the 5 most critical features missing from the System 55, but today's standards. It also includes a suggestion about how to address these and other "wish list" items, within the expansion space available on the System 55's 4th row. This row has 140 hp of eurorack space. It is covered in panel blanks as the System 55 arrives from the factory. As it turns out, this episode could well be entitled "core modules of the Behringer System 100".
Let me know what you've put in the 4th row of your System 55.

System 55 - Emulating a Voltage Controlled Filter


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"The System 55 contains only a single 904A Voltage Controlled Lowpass Filter. So, what do you do to create a second voice? This video examines 4 possible options. In the course of the discussion we create a Flutelike voice and a Clarinetlike voice.
Can you think of any other options than the four I mention?

System 55 - 961 Interface Module Tricks and Tips


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This video explores the 961 Interface Module. The main function of this module is to convert Voltage triggers (v-triggers) to Switch triggers (s-triggers), and vice versa.
Along the way we show an interesting (and musical) capability of the module that allows us to change from 8th notes to quarter notes (or half notes). It's pretty cool. Let me know what you think.
The synth audio was wholly produced by the System 55 (with reverb added in the mixer)."

"This video is a quick unboxing/assembly video with a few tips along the way. Keep an eye out for additional patching and how-to videos with the Behringer System 55.
BTW, the background music was from the September group meeting of the facebook group 'Birmingham Alabama Electronic Music Group'. We usually bring a synth or two and jam at these meetings.

Recording Live MIDI Drum parts


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This video explores a technique that I researched this past week. Drums are my most proficient instrument, so this technique lets me record more natural "live" sounding drum parts into a DAW or Groovebox.

I'm using the Roland SPD-30 drum pads (a successor to the Octapad ). I'm not using the internal SPD-30 sounds, I'm just outputting the stream of MIDI notes.

I'm using the eMu XL-7 Command Station (groovebox) to record the MIDI notes as well as producing the sounds associated with those notes. The XL-7 is a great desktop Workstation platform. The sounds are great and there are so many hands on controls:

    16 knobs, plus volume and data encoder
    49 switches
    13 performance pads plus a ribbon controller

The rack mount successor to the XL-7 is the flagship eMu Proteus 2500."

Korg Maxi-Korg 800DV panel controls in detail


video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This is a detailed explanation of the unusual panel controls of the vintage Korg Maxi-Korg 800DV from the 1970s. Some have suggested that it was the best mono synth from the 1970s. It included two full mini-korg 700 synths which provided a lot of sonic potential.

This unit is rare because
1) at that time Korg (sold throughh Univox in the U.S.) was a largely unknown Japanese synth maker.
2) it was the older brother to the Mini-Korg 700(s). The Mini-Korg sold for about $750 in the mid '70s. The Maxi was perhaps twice that price, which meant that it competed with the ARP Odyssey and Mini-moog. It obviously lost that contest in the market.

Check it out in this video! Let me know what you think."
