Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge - Moon Landing, Alien Concert (focus issue)

video upload by SynthAddict

"Two box jam, make in under 1 hour (or totally live).

Osmose and RC-505

Sadly my best take was just before this one, but I forgot to hit record!
Kids, always remember to hit record. What a dope I was... this one has some timing issues and messy playing. It's OK but I'm sad I messed up the best take. :-(

Also, sorry I messed-up the focus, not my day. :-P"

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge - Cockroaches in Jail

video upload by SynthAddict

"End of the kebab series - in jail with cockroaches :-)

so I made a scenario with the local pet store's Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches shipment escaping into the jail all the sounds including perc are samples of stuff found in a prison cell (bed parts, metal tray or bowls/utensils, and bars of course) and sounds of the hissing cockroaches annoyed and getting squished over and over - the synth part is a cheat and is supposed to be a high human voice or something 😛 enjoy"

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge - Kebab Chase

video upload by SynthAddict

"Mixed some Middle Eastern instruments and vibes for a building-up chase, sort of... perhaps the kebab bandit got away. :-P

I had a weird audio issue but no time to fix it for the upload deadline. :-("

Hardware Jams Kebabs Challenge - Don't Steal Kebabs :-(

video upload by SynthAddict

"I fell asleep last night on Mulholland Drive and woke-up to sunlight - had to
rush this little guy out on my OP-Z. 🙂
It was a very busy few days at NAMM.

OP-Z track is dark and brooding to scare you into not stealing
that kebab!
Notice the use of the pitch bender that no OP-Z user seems to use.
Had some glitches but no time for a re-take."

#jamuary2024 14 HWJ "Remix" (FOCUS ISSUE) of Noisevember 22 w/ GForce Axxess & Tenori on

video upload by SynthAddict

"Sorry I had a camera fixed focus issue and it's a bit fuzzy - no time to re-make the jam...

Unsure of what to remix, I grabbed some looper stems from my "all Osmose" Noisevember 22 video to mix live on Maschine+ and also added some other live bits:

- GForce Axxess synth
- Tenori-on factory drum kit in layer 16 live mode

It ran a bit long as I got carried away, but it generally repeats around 6:20...
The Axxess patch gives it a Vangelis vibe 🙂"

#jamuary2024 13 Make Noise 0-Coast & Erica Synths Pico System 3 - more Buchla-style fun

video upload by SynthAddict

"More Buchla-type wild and strange timbres and patterns.

The Pico bucket brigade delay always provides some cool and unpredictable patterns and frequencies, under full manual control.

Pico System 3 even includes factory and "programmable" voice cards like the real Buchla Music Easel had, so you can avoid all the usual manual cable patching... Buchla was way ahead of its time in this and other ways."

#jamuary2024 12 Ripplemaker ('Buchla Easel') & Korg Volca Modular (Mini 'Buchla')

video upload by SynthAddict

"Time for some 'west coast' synth action...

Enjoy the wierd, wacky, and sometimes noisy timbres from Buchla-style digital synthesis with complex oscillators, wavefolding, etc.

The Volca Modular is running a modified Krell patch.
Krell patch is a generative style patch based on the amazing sound design from Louis and Bebe Barron for Forbidden Planet in 1956, where the characters discover the old Krell civilization."

#jamuary2024 07 HWJ Image Inspiration '24

video upload by SynthAddict

"My first attempt was more literal, based on the sounds of stuff in the painting and the actual notes depicted in the painting, but it didn't work out.

This one is more of a period jam with acoustic instrument samples: hand perc, upright bass, harpsichord, flute, and strings. I added some arps and FX for more pizzazz. :-)"

#jamuary2024 05 ZOA (Game of Life seq) & Aparillo

video upload by SynthAddict

""More iOS fun...

ZOA - a 'Game of Life' sequencer (cellular automata) with limited native timbre settings, but it's great for MIDI output goodness, very fun to explore

Aparillo - an amazing synth/sound design tool

Just another fun improv noodle, so plenty of errors and happy accidents. :-)
I went a bit long as I got carried away..."

#jamuary2024 04 TC-11,FRMS, and GeoShred

video upload by SynthAddict

"Forgot to upload again... :-P

A little mix of fun iPad apps with my RC-505 looper.
It's a bit wonky as it was mostly improv."

#jamuary2024 03 Plantwave & JD-08 in F# PentMin

video upload by SynthAddict

"From last night, fell asleep before uploading...

-Plantwave with iOS app (Bluetooth), preset set for F# PentMin
-Roland Boutique JD-08
-Irijule Theoryboard set for F# PentMin
-Korg MiniKP
-Edirol M-10MX

Plantwave connected to a sprig of St. John's Wort in medium light. I tried to modulate the plant response with red and white lights (to stimulate photosynthesis further) - not much reaction this time.

See my older video on Plantwave where I demo white, red, and UV pocket lights to change the plant response and the synth modulation follows - sort of like a biological D-beam control. :-) [posted here]

I think the Plantwave app preset wasn't set to modulate the sounds the same way my Roland MC-101 was in the older video. Next time I will do a demo of Plantwave connected via MIDI to a hardware synth."

#jamuary2024 02 Hartmann Neuron VS in Super Locrian D

video upload by SynthAddict

"I forgot to upload this last night - another one coming later tonight.

I haven't used the mighty Neuron VS in a while. I still need to make more custom 'neural' patch models (sounds) for it.

I would love to get the Neuron keyboard, but it's rare and very expensive but looks very cool. The keyboard version has more complete software (including stick recording) and the equivalent of 3 of these Nuke controllers plus more controls onboard.
It also outputs 5.1 surround mixes if you need it.
Axel Hartmann is the man. :-)"

Hardware Jams Weekly Challenge - Secret Santa '23

video upload by SynthAddict

"Secret Santa for Steve Rutherford

As Steve is a drums/guitar/synth guy I tried to incorporate most of the elements he uses, but with my own spin.

I only had about 2 hours to make this from scratch in one take, so I apologize for the errors and lack of complexity. :-)

No time to edit or do any titles/visual adjustments..."

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge -- 180 BPM (pseudo punk/speed metal)

video upload by SynthAddict

via supporting member, SynthAddit: "It has some synthy bits, but there is not a single guitar loop or real drum played on it (my guitar playing stinks). The Kontakt guitar and drum libs have some great elements in the samples

that sound pretty legitimate when played a certain way on the pads, especially the guitars with some added live 'string bending' with the M+ pitch ribbon - some luck there for sure. :-) "

Hardware Jams Weekend Challenge - GAS (Yamaha REX50)

video upload by SynthAddict

"Korg MS-20 mini, Korg SQ-1, Yamaha REX50, ATV aFrame, RC-505

A little last-minute improv of odd layered sounds - your mileage may vary but it was fun. :-)

It ran a bit longer than 5 min so feel free to fade out..."

Noisebridge SF Resident EMOM live modular performance 09-28-23 (restore)

video upload by SynthAddict

"My live modular set from Sep 28,2023.

The original livestream was glitchy, so I was able to get the stream file
from Franck Martin and edit it down - thanks Franck!
Thanks also to Colleen (TanukiSpiderCat) for organizing the event.

My set has a few mixing, tuning, & timing issues, but hey it’s live :-P
Thanks for watching…

Also the cool arp ratcheting in my set was done with Chris Jeffery’s special new module called GP-82, controlling the Behringer 182 sequencer (Roland recreation).
His module is on sale on his Etsy site right now.
Go check it out, and support this awesome Aussie. :-)"

"The GP-82 is a 4HP eurorack module that enhances other basic step sequencers (such as the Behringer 182 and 960) by adding ratcheting, clock division, variable step lengths and gate width modulation, from one channel of your step sequencer CV output.
It also has a 2 input Precision Adder which you can use to transpose a pitch CV (eg. a melody from your step sequencer). It also has a fun Bernoulli gate mode for random, and a number of burst modes as well as a clock shuffle.
Hand assembled in Australia using quality 'through-hole' components, making it easy for DIYers builders (DIY Kits available by the end of 2023)."
