Behringer Kobol Expander Classic Patches Sound Demo. No Talk

video upload by Anton Anru

"Analog Classics is a collection of 50 presets for the semi-modular synth Behringer Kobol Expander: 15 Leads, 15 Basses, 15 Plucks, 5 Chords.
It includes famous sounds that are found in many electronic tracks, from vintage to modern, musical solo timbres; basses that will fit into any track or performance.
Additionally, there are some experimental patches that will add uniqueness to your music, featuring the characteristic sound introduced by the Behringer Kobol Expander.
Plucks are excellent for use with arpeggiators or sequencers. In most examples of this category, I utilize an arpeggiator. Kobol Expander doesn’t have a built in arp/seq, but you may integrate your preferred arpeggiators or sequencers from your DAW or MIDI controller.
Chords are patches that involve intervals between the oscillators, such as major/minor thirds and others, creating the illusion of a chord.

🛍 Get the soundset:

The presets are suitable for a variety of genres, including: ambient, electronica, IDM, deep, techno, house, progressive, trance, lounge, downtempo, funk, jazz, pop, chill out, new age, cinematic, breaks, jungle, drum and bass, dub and others.

The soundset is presented in the form of PDF-Document. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn a lot about the synth and discover its true depth.

To recreate these patches, you will need up to 5 patch cords.
There are audio examples of all patches inside the folder with the soundset.

Elastic Melody "Midi Update" 1.1 Session featuring King of Digital & Bleass Megalit

video upload by Oliver Greschke

"This video is showcasing Elastic Melody's new Midi features: Elastic Melody is the used only Sequencer, Track 1 triggers a drumkit of King of Digital, Track 2 is playing the main melody and get's doubled with Bleass Megalit Synth (right speaker) to add some additional shiny heights. Additional effects by Bleass Delay & Reverb and Molly Looper."

"Elastic Melody is a standalone iOS application and AUv3 plugin with 3 channels of synthetic sounds, an analog style step sequencer and 4 master effects. Almost all parameters can be automated and thus changed in an „elastic way“. The focus of Elastic Melody is on a fast and intuitive creation of melodies with a basic analog sound. You can use Elastic Melody either as iOS Standalone app or as AUv3 plugin."

The Grainmakers Playlist

video uploads by Cinematic Laboratory

"This playlist features granular eurorack modules that all need to process the same reference sample. I hope this gives a good impression of what the modules can do for you. They're all different, they're all great."


1. Grainmakers Playlist Introduction
I've been working on a huge video over the last few days and when I reached 30 minutes I decided to break it up into a playlist. This is cool! I can make updates and add new modules as they emerge. It's not supposed to be the ultimate grain guide, but it's cool to hear all modules chew on the same sample and hear what comes out. It's easy to be impressed by a bad module with a great soundsource, or underwhelmed by an amazing module that need to process something unworthy of its grains. So it all comes down to what they have to offer. And there are no bad modules. It's great fun to hear how a standard concept can turn into completely different experiences. So this is just a short playlist introduction.
2. Mutable Instruments Beads | Grainmakers Playlist
In this episode, Beads needs to chew on a reference performance.
Beads is an effect, but it can process an internal wavetable synth on its own.
3. Qu-Bit Nebulae V2 | Grainmakers Playlist
Our next contender in the playlist is the Qu-Bit Nebulae. It may be a bit underappreciated, but wow. A unique feature is elastic audio for time stretching.
4. Qu-Bit Mojave | Grainmakers Playlist
Next, Mojave needs to chew on Sebastian Lexer's grand piano.
5. Loopers | Lubadh & Morphagene | Grainmakers Playlist
Loopers are often confused with granular synths, especially with the Morphagene. Loopers don't grain or spray, they're digital tape machines.
Sometimes, when you think you're into grains, you'd actually been looking for a looper. It's time to show the difference, so they're an important addition to the lineup.
6. 1010Music BitBox MK2 | Grainmakers Playlist
The BitBox may not seem an obvious choice for granular processing, but if this playlist were a competition, then BitBox MK2 would be the King of the Grainfields. Granular processing offers limited CV support in the current firmware, but the sheer processing power is almost an insult to the other modules. Fortunately, it can't offer the hands-on experience like dedicated modules.
7. Error Instruments x TINRS Brinta | Grainmakers Playlist

8. Melotus Versio | Grainmakers Playlist
It's a Versio. What can I say. Awkward, special, amazing and breathtaking. It's unique feature is no pitch control. While this sounds like a flaw, it's almost a musthave feature when you run notes, effects and chords through it. Don't touch the melody. Just make it grain. Top 3 module in my list. And if it doesn't fit your needs, install a different firmware! If you own a different Versio, give it a shot. Nothing creates techno atmospheres and backdrops like Melotus.
9. MISO Cornflakes | Grainmakers Playlist
This is the last one for today :). Still a few more modules to cover, but it's already a great list. Here's MISO Cornflakes chewing on the Lexer piano. Again, it's a totally different experience, because Cornflakes adds special harmonizing features and stacking of grains. No other module has it - as far as I know. It can make wonderful new sounds from something familiar.
10. Instruo Arbhar V2 | Grainmakers Playlist
I already made plenty of Arbhar videos, but this is the second V2 video. In this playlist, all granular modules in my collection need to process the same audio file so it's easy to figure out what they do. Now it's Arbhar's turn.
11. Clouds & Clones | Grainmaker Playlist
This playlist would not be complete without a tribute to Clouds, one of the first modules in Eurorack that brought grains to the case. Clouds was launched in 2015 and discontinued in 2017. But that wasn't the end of it. It's been revived and extended in many forms, making it one of the most successful modules in Eurorack even today. From a techical perspective, Clouds is no match for the modern grainmakers in this playlist. But from the perspective of production value it's still a super useful module, especially if you manage to install the Parasite firmware. It's easy to forget that granular synthesis doesn't need big buffers. Sometimes a small 1 sec buffer is exactly what you need to get that desirable classic granular stream.
12. Combinations | Grainmaker Playlist
I got a question if Lubadh and Mojave would make a good combo. I had no idea. I figured this whole playlist is still 1-dimensional. So I patched these two up and then and I just had to make this video! I am still using the reference track so you get a good idea of how big the sonic playground becomes when you combine any looper with any granular engine. Results may vary, but wow. The bottom of the Rabbit Hole simply has a doorway to the next one. And it always gets deeper than the one before.
13. ADDAC 112 | Grainmakers Playlist
I may have unintentionally kept the best for last. The 112 combines a looper and granular engine in one big module. This is the last entry in the playlist.
The 112 will return soon for a dedicated video with some carefully selected samples to play with.
14. I missed a few | Grainmakers Playlist
After finishing the 112 video I was confident I covered enough 'grainmakers' in this playlist. I doublechecked if Disting EX and Phonogene should be in it, but no. The third one definitely needs to be on it! It doesn't show up when you search for 'granular' on ModularGrid, but it immediately went to my personal top #2.

Stand by Me: The Sounds Made for the Film

video upload by

"In this video, Anthony tells the story surrounding the musical score from (1986) hit film Stand by Me which features an All-Star cast that incudes River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, Kiefer Sutherland, Casey Siemaszko, John Cusack and Richard Dreyfuss.

We learn that the first version of the film was titled The Body, named after the novel by Stephen King. The film's director, Rob Reiner intuitively changed the film's name to Stand by Me after licensing the rights to the song with the same name written by Ben E. King along with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The name change was made only one week before the film's delivery date. With little time to spare, the musical score was re-created using the sounds and melody from the song and performed on the Synclavier Digital Music System using it's on board sequencer/recorder and employing a sound modeling technique unique to the Synclavier called "Resynthesis".

Anthony describes "Resynthesis"as creating synthesizer sounds based on samples analyzed by the computer that use cross fades of back-to-back wave tables. "Resynthesis" gives you the tonal character of the original sampled sound with all the benefits of a synth (e.g less memory, same length across the keyboard, more editing capabilities...) Along with Brian Banks, Anthony programmed all the sounds and replayed the entire score in this way after the original score by Oscar Winning composer Jack M. Nietzsche was abandoned. The film's director Rob Reiner was present throughout the scoring process. The duo had just completed work programming and performing Jack's score for the John Carpenter Oscar Nominated film Starman.

In this video you'll hear the actual sounds used in the film that Anthony loads from the original 5.25" floppy disks (that still work perfectly after being in storage for close to 40 years). The final score used a core instrumentation of resynthesized versions of a flute, stand up bass, bowed wine glasses and piano. There was no DAW in existence so all the tracks were input into the Synclavier's internal sequencer/recorder and locked to picture using the latest feature SMPTE time code. With this set up, everyone could watch the film while the music was being recorded.

Anthony also states the importance of a good film or a good song. It's all the difference in the potential of your work as a programmer, arranger or performer. He advises to step back and really listen to what you are creating to find the emotion in the sounds.

Anthony's musical touch as both composer and performer is connected with some of the most influential creative minds over the last 40 years. He’s composed and conducted original orchestral scores for over 80 feature films including Young Guns, Internal Affairs, The Man From Elysian Fields, 15 Minutes and Planes, Trains & Automobiles, been commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic for his symphonic work "In the Family Way", written over one thousand TV commercials in a myriad of musical styles, co-founded Levels Audio Post (LA's premiere post production facility) and performed and arranged on big-box-office films and influential hit records such as Michael Jackson's Thriller.

His extensive work as a young arranger, orchestrator and performer for Quincy Jones, Jack Nitzsche, Lamont Dozier, Arthur Rubenstein and Giorgio Moroder was vital in launching his own career. His early years pioneering modular analog synthesizers along with his wide-ranging music scholarship positioned Anthony at the center of the music technology revolution. He attended the University of Southern California School of Music as a piano and composition major.

Sean McKee wrote in to let us know Jimmy Hotz, inventor of the Hotz MIDI Translator, passed away on June 5th of a heart attack.

"He created the rare and ahead of its time Hotz MIDI Translator hardware and software. If you remember I made a video about it. [video below]

End of an era. May he Rock In Peace."

From wikipedia:

Jimmy Hotz is an American inventor, record producer, recording engineer, electronic music pioneer, audio expert, author and musician.

Hotz began playing guitar at the age of seven.

He plays a number of instruments such as the guitar, keyboards, flute, drums and his own inventions such as the "Hotz Box" and the "Hotz MIDI Translator". Hotz has done a number of recordings where all of the instruments were played by him using only the Hotz Box as an input device.[1][2]

In the music business Jimmy Hotz has worked with Fleetwood Mac,[3] Dave Mason,[4][5] NSYNC,[6] Mobius 8 [7] B.B. King,[8] Yes, Jon Anderson,[9] Haven[10] and dozens of other recording artists as either a producer, engineer, mixer, studio musician, or musical instrument designer. Hotz was engineer and did programming on B.B. King's Grammy-nominated King of the Blues: 1989. Hotz was also the engineer on King's Grammy-nominated "Standing on the Edge of Love", for Best Contemporary Blues Recording in 1988 (from The Color of Money soundtrack).

You Rock Guitar featured a video of Jimmy playing their MIDI guitar through the Hotz Midi Translator software.[11]

In 2011 he released his debut novel, The Gates of Time.[12]

Hotz lived and worked in Southern California while developing his inventions.[13]

He is noted for his pioneering work with electronic music synthesizer MIDI controller development[14] / programming and as a technical consultant to Microsoft, Intel, Electronic Arts, Atari,[15][16] JBL and other concerns for new product development.

He is the inventor of the "Hotz Box", Hotz "MIDI vest" and the "Atari Hotz Box", "Hotz MIDI Translator",[17] computer software which has won interest and acclaim at the annual NAMM Show. Performers such as Mick Fleetwood, Jon Anderson, Paul Haslinger, Scott Gershin and others have been using Hotz products in their creative work.[9]

He is the inventor of numerous electronic devices and software innovations and has received three US Patents[18][19][20] in music technology.

As an expert in 3D computer graphics, Hotz was the chief visionary behind the 3dMAxMedia "Zuma Project",[6] assembling the team which developed the technology to manipulate 3D imagery in real-time with audio, MIDI and other real-time control devices).

"Zuma" won a 2001 Innovation award from Computer Graphics World Magazine and was used on the 2001 NSYNC PopOdyssey tour.[21]

Hotz Box MIDI Translator - The Original Theoryboard w/Polyphonic Aftertouch

video upload by Sean McKee - previously posted here

"A history, overview and tutorial of the very rare Hotz Box MIDI Translator hardware and software, invented by Jimmy Hotz. I decided to make this video because the only videos I found of this synth MIDI controller were of people playing the Hotz Box, but there was really no information out there on how it worked, and on forums it was very misunderstood. Hopefully this video will provide enough insights to educate people interested in this system and how it can be used. If you'd like to get a custom system built of any size, Jimmy can add polyphonic aftertouch and other features. For more information visit"

1970s ARP Axxe w/ Moog Filter SN 565

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.

via this auction

"This is an early Arp Axxe With the Moog Filter.

I hate this f##king POS. This thing is built like crap. The parts-quality is abysmal and it's almost impossible to get it working 100% correctly even after a major professional overhaul and constant continual servicing. I first purchased this non-working with hopes to fully restore it and have a cool piece of USA-made synth history. Well, after replacing all the worn slider pots and all the typically suspect parts like the self-destructing tantalum capacitors... it sorta worked. Brought it to a very brilliant electrical engineer and he got it mostly working... but it still had issues and wouldn't fully calibrate.... brought it to another synthesizer technician that got it mostly working, but then I breathed on it wrong one day and it had to go back to him... It seems to be 99% working properly, but I still can't fully tell... I'm not sure how to get the S&H to work on the filter like any other 70s synth, but maybe it's just me, or maybe this synth doesn't work that way. Anyway I have to assume that if you are an Arp fan that you are emotionally damaged or at the very least a little bit stupid. This thing is my albatross, I'm into it for WAY more than it's worth and at this point you buying it is saving me from just throwing into a bon fire. Other than all that it's in surprisingly good condition and would look nice next to your other, better-designed and better-built synths of the era. Listing for the lowest price I can muster, probably less that others of the same condition and year. I dunno, maybe you're a masochist. Good luck, you'll need it."

Roland Juno 60 - sweet spots

video upload by The Synth King

"The Roland Juno 60 is probably one of the most iconic synths ever. Its sound is omnipresent in almost any chart hit of the 1980s. No matter what you do, this synth as such is a sweet spot, you can't make it sound bad. Today the Juno 60 is highly sought after and can be found as workhorse in many music productions in the world.

Behringer UB-Xa - - Milestone - - by "The Synth King"

video upload by The Synth King

"This video showcases a complete song I´ve composed and produced with sounds exclusively from the Behringer UB-Xa (except drums). The opening bass line was made with the built in step sequencer running in sync to the DAW. I've used a single reverb and two delay plugins for this track. There is no EQing or dynamic processing involved. All sounds were recorded directly into the audiointerface."

Update via Behringer:

"As we’re getting ready for the production of the long awaited UB-Xa, we’d like to share a beautifully crafted video of the Synth King.

It demonstrates that this amazing synth is not only capable of capturing the legacy sounds of the ‘80s but also deliver modern sounds and timbres.

The UB-Xa is one of our most complex products we have ever designed in our 35 years of history. 15 engineers worked over 4 years, delivering 8 hardware revisions and countless firmware upgrades, while co-innovating with 20 beta testers who all own the original OB-Xa synth. Our objective was to spend as much time and resources it takes and only release it when it is perfect. The UB-Xa is now completed and we’re ramping up for production. As Uli stated from the beginning, this synth was never meant as a commercially driven product, but rather a labor of love. In fact, it might never make us any money and that’s OK. For that reason, we plan to offer if at the lowest possible price and at a fraction of competitive products.

We’re sorry this has taken so long but we now have a synth jewel we’re very proud of and a fantastic platform that will allow us to deliver new poly synths at a much shorter time. We’d like to thank all the beta testers who spent years and countless hours to help us bring the UB-Xa to life.

And finally, we’d like to thank all of you for your support and patience. You’re the reason why we love what we do."

YAMAHA CS-60 - one song - one synth - live looping

video upload by The Synth King

"Here you find my edited version of a live looping session with my Yamaha CS-60 and the Boss RC-505 MK2. Since the CS-60 can hold only one user preset plus the panel setttings, it's not that easy to change sounds on the fly. The song structure is quite simple. Everything you hear is basicly improvisation except for the chord progression which I wrote down beforehand.
Enjoy the music!

♫ JOURNEY OF THE PRAIRIE KING ♫ on Gotharman's zaTurn Modular Synth [Stardew Valley VGM Cover] #TTNM


"This is a video game music cover of Stardew Valley's "Journey of the Prairie King" overworld theme, created entirely on Gotharman's zaTurn modular synthesizer. I must admit I haven't played the mini game at all, but I stumbled upon this tune and it's so damn catchy! :D :D :D

To get it into the zaTurn, I looked up Stoh Shiba's piano sheet music of the piece as a starting point and programmed that into the sequencer, taking a few creative liberties. Because the zaTurn only supports up to 64 steps per track, I had to split the song up into 14 presets. Luckily, copy and paste works so well on the Gotharman instruments and there are multiple ways to enter notes into the devices. After I completed writing the sequencer presets, using only a simple zaTurn voice patch, I started the actual sound design process and the arrangement of the various pieces in the Gotharman song mode.

I only used samples for the quirky vocals at the end of the song. The rest is all patched internally on the zaTurn. The one-take recording received subtle EQ and compression in Cubasis afterwards and that was it.

Oberheim OB-SX - 56 brand new presets - available as sys ex and EPROM image file

video upload by The Synth King

"New sounds for a preset synth ??

Breathe new life into your trusty Oberheim OB-SX !! You´ll get 56 brand new synth preset sounds as midi sysex file (for MLAB magic box user) and as EPROM image file replacing the old factory presets.

Honestly, this synth can do more than flutes, trumpets and clarinets. In my opinion it shines with juicy pads, cutting leads, fat unison basses and brassy synth sounds and that is exactly what you´ll get with this sound set.

Enjoy the video and support my channel !
Best wishes for 2023 !
