RS060 Dr Böhm Dynamic 12/24 (Orla DSE): German EFF EHM

video upload by rejected synths

"Talking synths from Germany, quite a few companies come to mind: Waldorf, Doepfer or Vermona are popular ones still around and there are a lot more, some of them long gone like pioneering PPG. One company that hardly ever makes the list is Dr Böhm Organ. This might be down to the fact that Böhm weren’t exactly a company focused on synths at all but rather one that offered DIY kits for people to build themselves electronic organs.

Strictly speaking these organs were ‘synths’ too and when the 80s arrived, Böhm, just like companies like Sequential, Roland or Yamaha, started to utilize digital control and later digital synthesis in their ‘synths’ too, albeit utilizing interfaces more akin to traditional organs.

One other similarity to ‘real’ synth companies was that they also started to offer expander modules, that could be controlled by midi, expanding the variety of sounds while at the same time saving on space (no keyboard) and costs.

This is where today’s synth comes from. The Dynamic 12/24 was meant as an affordable way for Böhm’s customers of home owners and entertainers to expand their setup with some more organ but also other sounds like strings, e-pianos and some 80s-ish synth staples.

The technology used was taken from one of it’s electronic organs and while clearly trying to hide it (even going as far as filing the markings off the ICs) it was Yamaha FM Chips doing Yamaha sounding 4OP FM. The good thing is of course, that this is actually a great basis for a very wide range of sounds, especially as Böhm was kind enough to add user memory to enable creation and saving of your own patches. Also, editing can be done via midi and there are editors available too. What makes the 12/24 stand out from the crowd of 4 OP modules most though is the unique Böhm analog bucket brigade delay style ensemble effect, that ‘warms’ the FM sound.

Last but not least, the Dynamic 12/24s seem to be widely available and dirt cheap too, at least here in and around Germany. So grab one before they become cool, or anyone finds out they are actually the same as the Orla DSE, a synth that has been used by a guy that goes by the name of Richard David James…"

Cubusynth Engine complex VCO : Build Video

video upload by Synth Diy Guy

"Building and Calibrating this wonderful Chaotic dual complex VCO by Cubusynth!

Suggested Mods:
R189, R190: change to 47K for higher Gain of wavefolder
R236, R237: adjust for offset of wavefolder (47k to 470k)
R2, R3: change from 100k to 110k for offset of Triangle output, also improves sine roundness.
R85, R92: change from 100k to 68k/47k for better sine roundness. Adjust R81, R96 for amplitudes. C20: replace with wire for a straight Pulse on VCO1.

SIGNOS - Olivella Modular: “Pleasantly surprised with a wealth of interesting wave shapes”

video upload by Synth Diy Guy

video uploads by Olivella Modular

Olivella Modular SIGNOS | Sequence manipulation
Olivella Modular SIGNOS | Saw doubling and detuning
Olivella SIGNOS + Sport Modulator 2 = Feedback!

SIGNOS is an incredibly versatile dual channel utility and waveshaper module for CV and audio processing in just 8HP.

Both X and Y channels feature a classic / unipolar VCA with separate normal and inverted outputs, a polarizer / four-quadrant multiplier / bipolar VCA, a -5V to +5V manual offset voltage that gets summed with their respective channel's bipolar VCA outputs and a red/green LED indicator for this output. The offset voltage can be used on its own if no input signal is present.

X and Y sums of their bipolar VCAs output + offset (X+offset and Y+offset) are then feeded to these logic and waveshaper circuits:

AND analog logic gate: outputs the minimum of X+offset and Y+offset.
OR analog logic gate: outputs the maximum of X+offset and Y+offset.
MOD waveshaper: represents the mathematical modulo operation as a CV modulator and waveshaper, with X+offset and Y+offset affecting different parts of this circuit.
SHIFT waveshaper: originally designed to pitch-shift sawtooth waves up an octave, it can also do interesting wave-mangling to all kinds of signals.

All of the above are just the module’s building blocks, only the tip of the iceberg of what SIGNOS can do. It naturally lends itself to feedback patching techniques within itself and/or other modules, complex waveshaping, external signal processing and more. The limits of what SIGNOS can do are completely up to you.

Phantasmal Force micro MIDI controller + Bastl Kastle Drum & 1010music lemondrop bells in locomotion

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Phantasmal Force micro MIDI controller with the @1010_music lemondrop and the @bastlinstruments Kastl drum. The Kastl kicks it off with a little loop (just started learning this little guy). The Phantasmal Force is sending chords to the lemondrop. The chords were generated randomly by the Phantasmal Force and I’m just noodling around with them. In chord mode, the knob raises or lowers the chord on the button up to one octave. Each button can send a different three note chord. The notes of the chord are adjustable, so you can make your own chords. Still working on tuning the randomness of the chords to sound more musical … #diy #synth #midicontroller #granularsynthesis #tinysynth #tinystudio #jamuary2023"

LXR by Erica Synths x Sonic Potions

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Time for a 'not so deep' dive into the LXR, but with really cool results. I've linked a video manual by Synth DIY Guy who went through all settings because I don't have the patience for walkthroughs and demos. But, wow, this drum synth is something else. When I started this video I assumed it was analog but it's certainly digital and it's a masterpiece. The point is, it doesn't sound digital unless you set the bit crusher to work.
The presets are clearly targeted to the loud and gritty genres of electronic music, but in its core, it's a six voice synth that can make amazing sounds for any genre, including ambient. I am not sure if I can post something before Christmas, so I wish you a great holiday season and I'll definitely see you again in 2023."

Ghost - and Andrew Huang New FX module - Sonic Lab Review

video upload by sonicstate

"Collabs are all the rage these days, and this one comes from a meeting of and massive Youtuber/Producer Andrew Huang. Ghost is a multi-function effects and processing module, with delay, filtering, reverb, sidechaining and distortion, but not necessarily in that order - its, fluid due to some nifty DSP work from

Modular performer and producer, MATTHS (aka Matt Hodson) takes a look."

They sent me one, and here's a ponderous demo/techno jam of it as an end-of-chain finisher for a Quadrantid Swarm (which it does rather well), with a cameo from Andrew. Commence the ghostlyjams."
