Wine Country Sequential Is Winding Down



This the end of an era. Wine Country Sequential was formed by ex Sequential Circuits employees when the original Sequential Circuits went under. They specialized in servicing and providing parts for vintage Sequential Circuits synths. I actually own a Wine Country "Perfect Prophet-5" myself.

via Wine Country Sequential:

"The Long & Winding Road Ends..Soon

It's been 46 years since musicians experienced the polyphonic sounds of a Prophet-5, and 41 years since the Prophet 600 introduced MIDI to the world. Sequential Circuits Prophets have made significant contributions to music, film, & theatre for decades. Since 1987 keeping the Prophet sound alive has always been the goal of Wine Country Sequential, and it's been a long and interesting ride. The ride is now over, Wine Country Sequential repair services for Sequential Circuits Prophets ended in December 2023. However, Wine Country Sequential remains open for business as the liquidation of original Sequential Circuits parts & manuals in order to help vintage Prophets survive in the decades to come.

Liquidation of Sequential Circuits parts, manuals & archival documentation continues. Original Operation & Technical Manuals, Printed Circuit Boards, custom IC's, sound programs, Diagnostic ROMs and various other parts are available for most Sequential Circuits instruments. Wine Country Sequential will remain open for business in 2024 until the parts are gone.

Visit WineCountrySequential.com and SequentialCircuits.com for updates reflecting current availability of parts as the liquidation continues.

The Last Restored & Warranted Prophet 600 for sale by Wine Country with a 30 Day Parts & Labor Warranty is currently posted on SequentialCircuits.com at https://sequentialcircuits.com/prophet600forsale.html

Coming soon to SequentialCircuits.com is a Collector's Corner page offering original manuals, memorabilia, brochures, and even complete original engineering fabrication drawing packages for Sequential Circuits Prophets, drum machines, & other synths.

Thank you for your previous interest, and best of luck with your music.

Kind regards from California,

A lot of control in a small package - The E4 endless encoder controller for DROID


video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"The people over at DROID have been busy and present a new controller for the DROID eco system. Today we have a quick look at the features, and some examples I have been testing out. I think the module is a great option when you are interested in starting with DROID with a compact setup. But it will add a whole lot of control to deep setups as well."



"Der Mann mit der Maschine | E4

The E4 is a controller with four rotary encoders.

The encoders look like normal potentiometers, but you can turn them endlessly in either direction. (Don't be fooled by the knobs, which do have a pointer).
This allows for a wide range of applications and great flexibility.

Each encoder is surrounded by a square of 32 multicolor LEDs. This LED ring is used to indicate the current value of the encoder. And it looks really great! The LEDs help you to give you an orientation by displaying the current value.

Each encoder contains a push button, which can be used just like those on the P2B8 or on the B32.

The E4 is perfect for mapping many different functions or presets to one encoder and then switch with the buttons of a P2B8 or B32 to some other context. Because of the LED rings you instantly see the current value after switching. And other than with pots, no "picking up" of the value is needed.
Furthermore, the nature of the encoders allows for some useful features, for example:

Create a "multi turn" pot, that needs to be turned several rounds for going through the total range (which allows for a finer selection).
Enable a mode where a slow movement of the encoder changes the value even slower, so it allows for instant fine tuning.
Use an encoder as a switch with a fixed number of positions (the LEDs visualise that)
Select a bipolar value with proper visualisation by the LEDs.
Use an encoder for "strumming", where you get triggers when it is turned.
As a bonus, there is a circuit called encoquencer, that allows you to build a melody sequencer based on the encoders and LEDs of the E4. It has the same features as the sequencer that is based on the motor faders of the M4 (motoquencer).
Power consumption:

+12V: 220 mA when all LEDs are white, 53 mA during normal use case
-12V: 0 mA
5V: 0 mA

Hint: The LEDs only shine fully white when you set them up to do so in your DROID patch. As long as you use the encoders in a normal way, the LEDs display colored light which is not as bright, so the power consumption is much less under normal circumstances."

Quad Multimode Filter & Morphing Scanner Bank // Atlas by Vostok Instruments


video upload by DivKid

"I really love the approach of Vostok Instruments where they’re building out modules that not only sound great, but that offer multiple channels of the same functions. In modular you often need more, and not particularly more variety, but more of the same functions to push creativity and deeper levels of patching.

Atlas is a set of 4 multimode filters (low pass, high pass, band pass), with clever normalisations, dual modulation inputs per channel, a ‘classic synths of Japan in the 80s’ inspired sound PLUS you get an interpolating scanner bank that will morph between the four filter outputs. It’s an impressive thing that’s been a delight to play and patch with.

As always I hope the video provides you patches to explore Atlas and other filters and functions in your own systems."

Update: new video from Stazma:

Atlas Eurorack Module Demo | Gear Talk w/ Vostok Instruments

17:17 Ambient w/ Torso T-1
18:14 Drum machine patch
21:34 End talk



Mini press release follows:

"Atlas is the latest addition to our range of multi-channel modules, a fully analog, four-channel multimode filter.

The cores are a modern approach to the gain-cell-based filters included in many of the classic Japanese synths of the 80s, with a vastly improved dynamic range, a super-accurate resonance compensation circuit, and a clean self-oscillation. It is perfect for recreating iconic TR-drum sounds by pinging the filters with fast envelopes or triggers.

In addition to the four filters, the module counts with a dedicated Interpolating Scanning Circuit that morphs between all the filter outputs to create new shapes and timbres."

User Manual

Additional details via Vostok Instruments:

When we talk about the sound signature of synths, filters are probably one of the first topics appearing.

On Atlas, we dive into the sound of the 80s Japanese classics with four gain-cell-based multimode filters that keep the silky and creamy sound of those legendary machines along with some technical improvements like a better noise floor, an accurate resonance compensation, and a daisy-chain input implementation that makes some patching techniques like parallel filtering a lot easier.

The filter cores have been carefully designed and tweaked to be pristine without losing character. With three filter modes available per channel, 4p-LP, 2p-HP, and 4p-BP, Atlas can cover almost any filtering technique, from superb filter sweeps to multi-slope resonant patches.

Thanks to its precise resonance circuit, each core creates a clean sine wave when self-oscillating. Excite the inputs with fast trigger or gate signals, and you will get TR-like drum sounds, from deep kickdrums to nice toms and congas.

In addition, the module counts with a CV-controlled Interpolating Scanner circuit that morphs softly between each filter output, creating new shapes and timbres as it fades between the channels.

Features
Four analog multimode, gain-cell-based VCF circuits.
Three modes per channel: 4p-LP, 2p-HP, and 4p-BP.
Resonance compensation circuit.
Daisy-chained audio and Freq inputs.
Secondary CV input, selectable between Frequency or Resonance.
CV-controlled Interpolating Scanner circuit.

The Wave Transformer // EarthQuaker's Boldest Device Yet ( & it isn't even a pedal)


video upload by Jorb

"I love a lot about this module.

Its a rock solid oscillator, which yes there are a ton of them, but this needs to be if its gonna compete. And the waveshaping from the transform circuit gives it enough of its own character to stand out.

I think its priced competitively, it does all the things other up-market "standard" oscillators do (built-in attenuators for modulation, hard and soft sync, built in sub) and it has so much of its own character.

If there's any downside, its kind of a lot of HP? But not really when you consider the sum of its parts. On all fronts, we got a banger.

Complex Morphing VCO, Subs, FM & more // The Wave Transformer by Earthquaker Devices (Eurorack Demo)
video upload by DivKid

"Well this was a surprise! Earthquaker Devices (makers of fine pedal FX) making a Eurorack oscillator. Yes they made the Afterneath module, but as that was a modular version of a pedal I didn't expect they come guns glazing with a big, bold VCO!

I first saw The Wave Transformer by Earthquaker Devices at Knobcon, where they brought it along for an early look and sat playing with it at the show I knew they were onto something that sounded great. Well now it's released here we are with a demo.

The Wave Transformer is a 20HP Eurorack oscillator, it's analog, with onboard complex, transforming wave shaping, sub generators with unique shapes, FM, sync, LOTS of precise tuning control and options to wave shape external sources, saturate audio and track subs from your other oscillators. I've had lots of fun with this one!"

The Wave Transformer is an analog, vintage-voiced, voltage-controlled oscillator with over 8 octaves of accurate pitch tracking. It has 7 simultaneous wave outputs, including a unique Complex output.

The Transform control morphs from a basic waveform through many strange iterations into a complex, gnarled mass of audio mutations at the Complex output. You can yield countless variations on these permutations by combining this novel circuit with Hard Sync, Soft Sync, Linear FM and Exponential FM. Additionally, you can mute the source waveform to use the circuit as a harmonic gate/VCA, rendering The Wave Transformer a voice unto itself. If that is not enough, there is a Shape Insert that allows you to transform external oscillations and modular-level audio sources."

What is The Vanilla Synthesizer? It's Ready, That's What



via the STG Soundlabs/muSonics Electronic Newsletter:

Is it The Vanilla Synthesizer or the muSonics TVS?

I started working on this project a year and a half ago.

Originally my thought process was to make a new American format synthesiser that could be sold as modules, kits, and bare boards. I was concerned about the future of the format, and I felt a new line of basic modules and infrastructure at a variety of price points was important. I still do.

STG Soundlabs was a failure because I made things that ultimately the eurorack market simply did not want. Yes, I sold some, and will continue to maintain the line as best as I can, but it's very hard to find photos of eurorack installations with STG Soundlabs modules in them, but rare to find a nice big man-sized synthesiser without my modules in it.

Another thing I wanted to do was teach myself how to do my own engineering. It didn't start that way, but it became that way. I'd been a hardware product developer since 2005 but never actually laid out a circuit board. That is no longer true, and I've done things beyond this project that I haven't even talked about.

Bébé Chérie by OTO Machines


video upload by OTOMACHINES

"Bébé Chérie is a 6-channel stereo analog mixer with a one-knob compressor and a Bliss enhancer on the master bus. https://www.otomachines.com/product/b..."



"Bébé Chérie is a 6-channel stereo analog mixer with a one-knob compressor and a Bliss enhancer on the master bus.

The first 4 channels offer a variable input gain (up to 34 dB) with an asymmetrical diode clipper for smooth and musical distortion.
The Tilt pot is a simple yet powerful one-knob equalizer : boosting the lows while attenuating the highs when the pot is turned down, attenuating the lows while boosting the highs when the pot is turned up.
When the Tilt pot is in its center position, the equalizer is flat.
The rear panel switch selects the type of inputs : TRS for stereo sources and TS for mono (the signal is center panned).

The last 2 channels include a 2 bands Baxandall equalizer, the input gain can be set between 0 and +10 dB using the rear panel switch.
There’s no distortion on these 2 channels so you can use them when you want to keep a clean sound.

The compressor has a 3:1 ratio with a fast attack and a mid release times, perfect for mixdown compression.
Very easy to operate, it will give you good results with many kinds of music styles.
The Bliss pot controls a hi frequency enhancer circuit and is very useful for adding air and punch to your mix, specially when your using large amount of compression.

Whenever a channel is muted, the signal is routed to the Alternate output. You can use this output for recording purposes or for sending the channel to an external effect.

The Phones output is based on an unity gain, low noise and low distortion Texas Instruments© amplifier. This output is a copy of the master output (with compression and Bliss), so you can also use it as a second output.

BĂ©bĂ© ChĂ©rie uses the best quality parts : ALPS© pots, high-performance operational amplifiers, audiophile Panasonic© film capacitors, THAT Corporation© VCAs, Switchcraft© 3.5 mm connectors, metal enclosure.
The power supply is internally boosted to +/- 12 volts for pro audio headroom.

Bébé Chérie is specially designed for mixing 3.5 mm stereo Jacks sources, but can be used with any device using adapters.

BĂ©bĂ© ChĂ©rie is a very versatile box and can be used in many ways : mixer for compact live, analog summing for your audio interface, effect box (distortion, equalization, compression,…)

SoundForce Introduces SFC-OB Class-Compliant Boutique Oberheim OB-Style Hardware Controller



via SoundForce

"The SoundForce SFC-OB is a class-compliant boutique USB MIDI controller dedicated to OB-style synth plugins.

Features
With 37 rotary pots, 41 switches and 45 LEDs, you can finally control your virtual instrument in an instinctive and fun way. Create better synth sounds easier and improve your overall experience. A couple of extra “USER” controls are available to be freely assigned to additional parameters, for example Reverb size, Delay time, DAW FX sends levels. etc… The controller sends out standard MIDI cc messages and can be used with any software that is MIDI-mappable. A web-based control panel app allows the user to change the cc messages number for each control, change the MIDI channel and load the different plugin modes.

Plugin modes
Although the controller can be used with any software that can be mapped to MIDI CC messages, the SFC-OB has been specifically designed to work with the most popular OB-style synth plugins. Set the controller to the right plugin mode using the control panel. This will ensure that every switch on the SFC-OB is fitting the plugin used as well as possible. For more information, please check out the manual on the support page.

Build quality
The controller is assembled in The Netherlands with parts from Europe and Asia. It is built to last and withstand intense usage on tour and in the studio. SoundForce has an excellent track record for its controller line, with many units built and very little registered issues and repairs. The enclosure is made of 100% sheet metal and is manufactured by Grawart (http://www.grawart.pl). The case is made of bent steel and powder coated in black. The front panel is aluminum, also powder coated and screen printed with scratch-proof white and blue ink. Walnut wood side panels of 8mm thickness are fitted to both sides of the controller. On the electronics and firmware side, the controller is powered by the same STM32 Cortex-M micro-controller platform used successfully in previous products, insuring a very high level of compatibility with different computers and DAWs. The devices have been even used successfully with iPads.

2-way/1-way communication
As with previous controllers, users can enjoy 2-way integration using the latest Arturia OP-Xa V. This means that the controller interface can be updated when presets are changed in the plugin, when plugin instances are switched or even manually on demand. The controller even accounts for discrepancies between a plugin pot-position and a controller pot-position, and implements pick-up or smoothing modes to avoid juming values. This allows for an improved and tighthly integrated workflow. Other traditional 1-way MIDI CC mapping is available for the brand new GForce OB-X, SonicProjects OP-X PRO-II, DiscoDSP OB-Xd and Synapse Obsession. Those modes, even though more limited, still offer a fantastic new hands-on experience for virtual synth users.

Pricing and Availability
The SFC-OB is available on the SoundForce webshop for 399 euros incl VAT (exact price will depend on your local VAT %) in the EU and 329 euros for customers outside the EU. Perfect Circuit will be distributing the SFC-OB in the US, Signal Sounds in the UK, Cicada Sound in Canada and Dupertuis in Switzerland. Please get in touch with your local distributor for pre-ordering/ordering and pricing information."

DEMO - Petal - MaxforLive Device for Ableton Live by Rainbow Circuit


video upload by Isotonik Studios

"Petal is a Max for Live multi-tap delay that draws any sound into an ever-unfolding garden. The core of Petal is its eight-tap delay, evenly spaced at the dialed in delay time. Individual taps can be toggled on or off to create irregular rhythmic delays.

The X-Y Shaping pad distorts the tap delay times in interesting ways. The Y-axis shifts the tap delay times from equidistant (linear) spacing to skewed (sigmoid) spacing. The X-axis skews the tap delay times closer to either tap 1 or tap 8.

Each tap can be pitch-shifted up or down in perfect 5ths or octaves. Play a handful of notes and listen as it evolves into a rich harmonic background. The FFT pitch-shifting circuit provides clean pitch-shifting with minimal tonal coloration.

Feeling uninspired? Tap the dice to generate endless pitch-shifting and tap on/off combinations.

Add feedback and hear the delay pattern dance around. Petal uses a separate delay line in its feedback circuit, which can be set to individual tap length.

Introducing character to Petal is easy: a no-nonsense filter for effortless tonal shaping, delay time modulation using the Wobble parameter, and soft clipping to add rich harmonics to the input signal.

Expanding Your Eurorack Setup with the ES9 and VCV Rack Ft. Omri Cohen


video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Bridging between the worlds of software and hardware instruments is a long-standing ideal among electronic musicians. It's easy to imagine why: the precision of control and extensibility of the computer coupled with the tactility of hardware instruments has the potential to open completely new musical dimensions.

Luckily, this type of setup is simpler now than it ever has been. In this video, our pal and hybrid setup aficionado Omri Cohen walks through some ideas for integrating a hardware Eurorack system with the virtual modular synthesizer VCV Rack…focusing on the Expert Sleepers ES-9 Eurorack audio interface as a bridge between the two worlds. In this video, Omri touches on a ton of great patching ideas: using the computer to clock your modular system; using the computer as a processor for hardware audio; and much more.
