Melbourne Instruments DELIA // It's got motorised faders!


video upload by Starsky Carr

"From Superbooth 2024 DELIA is Melburne Instruments latest synth. The Nina was a desktop fuly analog synth, this one is a hybrid with keys.

Just a quick demo from Superbooth, but if I can get my hands on one :).

FYI I spoke with Signal Sounds - the distributor - while I was there so hopefully we can sort something soon."



Additional details and pics via Melbourne Instruments:

Motorized Morphing Polyphonic Synthesizer

49 Key Velocity and Aftertouch Sensitive
DELIA is a bi-timbral polysynth inspired by the motorized control panel and voice architecture of the original Melbourne Instruments’ Nina. Delia introduces a 49-key velocity and aftertouch sensitive keyboard, new multi-mode analog filters, high pass and low pass resonance control, 3-stage overdrive, and even more modulation possibilities.

Analog soul with a computerized brain

Using a combination of true analog filters and virtual analog modelling, DELIA retains the vital sound of massively overdriveable analog ladder filters, while using a digital front end to run modelled VCOs, wavetables, high pass filters and more. The powerful combination of analog plus digital is harnessed by Delia’s unique 12 note mode, using 12 complete oscillator banks into the 6 filters, limiting note stealing without compromising the sound, and fully unleashing Delia’s bi-timbral operation.

Discrete Multi-mode Filters

DELIA’s true analog low pass filter is the heart and soul of the sound engine — warm, full and sweet or fearfully aggressive. It is complemented with a high-pass modelled ladder filter, which can be linked for bandpass and notch operation. With 12 and 24dB slopes and separate high/low pass resonance control there is huge scope when shaping sounds, from the most delicate plucks and pads to the wildest overdriven bass and lead sounds imaginable. Delia is an inspiring creative companion and dependable instrument for musicians and composers, no matter what their level.

Know your Filters! Analog + Digital

DELIA’s filters have an analog and a digital section per voice. The analog filter is the classic discrete transistor ladder filter offering a choice of 24dB or 12dB per octave operation. Prior to this filter is an analog variable overdrive circuit that can push the filter from normal operation to complete distorted collapse of the transistor ladder, adding richness, aggression and body to your sound.

The HP filter is a digital transistor-level mathematical model of a 24dB ladder filter, based on the gold-standard Ebers-Moll transistor equations. This gives an almost perfect match to the response of the analog circuit, including the overdrive response, resonance and natural filter frequency variations.

The High Pass filter is less important sonically, so the choice of digital instead of analog reduces cost without compromise. Having the Low Pass filter second gives true analog character where it counts.

The filter is Multi-mode with 3 ways to configure. The High Pass and Low Pass cut-off frequencies are separately controlled with 2 knobs, so the overall operation can be High Pass, Low Pass or Bandpass. The separate HP and LP resonance controls offer flexibility to shape the sound including vocal-style formants. Delia’s LINK function locks the distance between the Low Pass and High pass knobs, setting a constant width Bandpass for both manual control and sweeps using the VCF envelope or other Modulation Matrix controls.

Total Recall. It’s not a dream!

The motorized journey does not end at Recall and Morph; Delia’s ‘MOD Mode’ automates the Modulation Matrix setup. As you move between the 20 modulation sources, every knob changes position to display its modulation amount. No need to tweak the panel every time you switch sources or destinations, no matter how many modulations or slots are active. Delia gives you a sound design workflow that truly flows - combining the flexibility of a soft synth with the tactile experience of a classic hardware synth.

Morph every parameter, then Mod it!

DELIA’s A/B Morph function lets you explore and sweep through timbres like no other. The A/B Morph sound is an actively calculated change in parameters between the A and B patches including the entire modulation matrix. This provides the ability to instantly create a new preset based on the Morph position that is neither the A or B patch, but instead a totally new sound. Morph is also a ‘MOD destination’, giving you even more creative control via Aftertouch, Mod Wheel and Expression.

Step into an infinite matrix of sound

The motorized journey does not end at Recall and Morph! Just like Nina, Delia’s ‘MOD Mode’ automates the Modulation Matrix setup. As you move between the 20 modulation sources, every knob changes position to display its modulation amount. No need to tweak the panel every time you switch sources or destinations, no matter how many modulations or slots are active. Delia gives you a sound design workflow that truly flows - combining the flexibility of a soft synth with the tactile experience of a classic hardware synth.

Building on innovation

DELIA inherits many of the acclaimed features of Nina, including 4-Quadrant Analog VCAs, Morphing, Digital Effects and Digital Wavetable Oscillator. Adding to these features are the inclusion of Sequencer Phrase Looping and Overdubbing, and the ability to assign your favorite effects parameter to the Effects Macro control.

Under the hood Delia is a beast! Virtual Analog Oscillators model Nina’s discrete circuitry but add cross-modulation, and Delia’s 20 modulation sources and 40+ mod destinations with unlimited slots gives sound designers an almost endless spectrum of sounds. Two digital effects processors paired with classic effects presets and the option to run in series or parallel offers creative freedom. And with the ability to save more than 16,000 presets inspiration and artistry will never be limited by available memory or slots

Waveform, Envelope and Wavetable Visualizers

Delia’s high definition LCD also provides useful Waveform and Wavetable visualizers, as well as instant feedback and display for almost every function as you interact with the control panel.

Joranalogue Introduces Cycle 5 - New Compact Powerhouse VCO



For those attending SUPERBOOTH, you'll find Joranalogue at our their spot: booth W435 in the gymnasium.

Coming in Q3 2024.

A small Eurorack oscillator that packs a punch: that’s the best way to summarise Cycle 5.

At its heart lies a refined high-stability triangle core voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), with performance matching or exceeding that of much bigger and costly oscillator modules.

Instead of a coarse frequency knob, a 7-position octave switch is provided. This in combination with a perfect fifth transposition switch and factory pitch tuning, makes Cycle 5 an exceptionally straightforward and musical VCO to use: simply centre the fine tune knob, and the module will be instantly tuned to reference C.

Meanwhile, its dual precision volt per octave inputs add a great deal of versatility. For example, one could be used for pitch sequencing and the other as a generic exponential FM input, or both sequenced together for transposition effects—the dual inputs serving as a built-in precision adder.

Sporting all the classic waveforms, ranging from sine wave, triangle, saw and square/saw, as well as a hard sync input and low frequency oscillator (LFO) mode, Cycle 5 makes for a real workhorse VCO. The novel trigonometric waveshaper results in a very clean sine wave, ideal for sub bass duty.

Cycle 5’s highlight however, is its vari-wave feature. By adjusting the vari-wave knob, the waveform on the matching output will smoothly morph from sine, to triangle, saw, square and finally a very narrow pulse. The vari-wave parameter can be CV controlled, up to audio frequencies for some intense timbres.

Equally at home as a modest modulation companion to big VCOs, as being in the spotlight in miniature or polyphonic systems, Cycle 5 might just be the most multi-talented tiny analogue oscillator yet.

High-stability precision analogue triangle-core VC(LF)O.
Octave and perfect fifth switches—all intermediate frequencies can be reached using the front panel controls.
Dual volt per octave FM inputs.
Outputs: sine, triangle, saw, square/pulse (PWM) and vari-wave, smoothly morphing between all waveforms.
Reset (hard oscillator sync) input.
Wide frequency range: 48 mHz (20 seconds) to 3.7 kHz.
Don't waste time tuning: pre-tuned for 0 V = C.
Impedance-compensated outputs with dual-colour vari-wave LED.
Trim potentiometers accessible from the front panel.
Precision-milled 2 mm anodised aluminium front panel with high-resolution, non-erasable graphics.
Bullet-proof design: polarised power header and MOSFET protection circuit.
Includes 16-to-10-pin Eurorack power ribbon cable.
Premium mounting hardware: black screws, black nylon washers and matching hex key.
High-quality components and assembly; designed and made in Belgium.

As always check with your favorite dealers on the right for upcoming availability of all new modules and synths.

Superbooth24: Groove Synthesis Debuts Sampling for 3rd Wave Synth



See the demo here.

Press release follows (image via the release):

Orinda, CA, May 15, 2024 — California-based electronic instrument maker Groove Synthesis today announced that they have added high-resolution sampling capability to their critically acclaimed Advanced Wavetable Synthesizer, the 3rd Wave.

This much-requested new feature allows owners to sample up to 30 seconds of 16-bit, 48 kHz, monophonic audio into the synth directly or by importing audio over USB, and use it as a new oscillator type alongside the 3rd Wave’s powerful wavetable and virtual analog sound engines. This significantly expands the sound palette of the synthesizer. Now owners can create custom sounds that feature sampled acoustic instruments, sound effects, and other sources.

The company will preview a new OS that provides this capability at the Superbooth24 music expo in Berlin, Germany from May 16-18 at booth #0246. The upgrade will be available free of charge to 3rd Wave owners as a download from the company’s website upon official release.

“As fans of the original PPG and its ultra-rare Waveterm sampling option, we thought it would

be exciting to add that capability to the 3rd Wave’s existing architecture — if it was technically possible,” said Groove Synthesis founder Bob Coover. “It took some tricky programming, but we did it and we think 3rd Wave owners are going to love it. It’s a dream come true for everyone who wanted the full PPG-plus-Waveterm experience, and now it’s within reach.”

While the 3rd Wave has roots in the classic digital wavetable synths of the past, it takes the concept firmly into the 21st century with a lush, expansive sound that’s a product of its expanded wavetables and analog filters. It’s hybrid design features 24-voices and 4-part multi-timbral operation, which is the equivalent of having four independent 6-voice synthesizers controlled by a single keyboard. Each of its three oscillators per voice can generate a classic PPG-era wavetable, a modern high-resolution wavetable, an analog modeled waveform — and now multi-sampled audio. With its industry-first WavemakerTM tool, users can create custom wavetables in a single step through proprietary sample-to-wave technology, allowing almost unlimited sound sculpting opportunities.

DRONES MAX


video upload by HOME BAKE INSTRUMENTS



DRONES MAX is a WAVE TABLE SYNTHERSIZER for sustained sounds. It has three WAVE TABLE OSCs and two POLE FILTERs, which can be modulated by two LFOs. Powerful effects include stereo delay, reverb, and crusher with a wide range of parameters, allowing for a variety of expression from aggressive and intense sounds to beautiful cosmic harmonics.

WAVETABLE

Over 200 waveforms are recorded, and you can change them smoothly. Also, at the end of the knob is a sawtooth waveform, a sine waveform, and a frequency-varying noise generator. WAVETABLE has a mixture of waveforms that contain different harmonics, and when combined with an LFO, it can create the effect of gradually changing musical scales.

OSC MIX

You can set the volume ratio of the three oscillators.

NOSIE

Adds noise to the oscillator output.

FILTER

DRONES is equipped with a 2POLE low-pass filter with resonance. Turning the CUTOFF knob to the left attenuates the high notes, and when turned all the way, no sound is produced. Turning the RES knob to the right will cause a peak to occur at the pitch at the cutoff point.

LFO

DRONES has a built-in LFO that can output sine, sawtooth, square, and sampled and held random waveforms. The LFO knob sets the LFO frequency and waveform. Turning the knob to the right will speed up the frequency, and when it reaches the highest frequency, it will switch to the next waveform.

STEREO DELAY / REVERB

Equipped with stereo delay and reverb for drone sounds.

Feedback can be set to no attenuation, adding even more depth to the sound.

CRUSHER

By lowering the resolution of the sound, you can create harsher expressions.

Sibilla v1.3: introducing the LFO Settings Mode


video upload by Clatters Machines

"Sibilla v1.3 is here and brings in a new LFO setting mode in which you can modify the LFO waveforms affecting the internal stereophony and movement of harmonics and subharmonics.

What's new?

Entering the new LFO Settings Mode allows you to choose LFO waves other than the default and classic sinusoidal waveform such as:
- Ramp Up;
- Ramp Down;
- Sine+Oct;
- Sine+3rd;

In addition to this, a new Freeze Mode has been added to allow the user to freeze the stereophony movement to his favourite sweet spot for steady tones, ideal for arpeggios and melodies.

How to

You can get access to the LFO Settings Page by double-clicking the Boost button: the Boost LED will now start blinking to confirm this new mode has been entered.
Now a single click on the center button allows to navigate through the different available option.

Each click lets you switch to the next option and cycle back to the first once the sixth and last mode (Freeze Mode) has been selected.
While in LFO Settings Mode, all the other parameters of Sibilla are still working so that instant changes can be heard.
Once you're done, double-click again the Boost button to exit the LFO Settings Page

Freeze Mode
In this configuration the two LFO are freezed and so the stereophony of the module. The LFO knob and the LFO CV input now act as balancers and they can be used to scan across the freezed stereo spectrum."

Basimilus Iteritas Alia jam with tons of CV modulation and muting


video upload by Noise Engineering

"This is an extended version of the jam used for the official Basimilus Iteritas Alia demo. [posted here]

Our Ambassador to the Stars, Patrick O’Brien, features the BIA in this all-Noise Engineering case.

Triggers come from the Bin Seq, and CV modulation comes from the Mimetic Digitalis stepped sequencer. The Muta Jovis switches off/on the CV, going into the BIA's inputs throughout the patch. The BIA is then sent to Roucha Legio, our stereo filter, which is activated with the gate coming from one of the Horologic Solum channels into the Bypass input.

More on the BIA here: https://bit.ly/3rPRryZ

Manis provides a nice, bright melodic splash throughout the jam, and Virt Iter Legio provides stereo bass drone sounds.

The BIA is a parameterized digital drum voice with its roots in the analog world. At its heart, the BIA is a simple six-oscillator additive and FM synthesizer with waveform, harmonic spread, and envelope controls. An adjustable noise oscillator and an extreme take on a wavefolder round out its synthesis abilities. Its straightforward controls make sound design fun and performable: create sub-shaking kicks, snares, hats, and unique drum hits with just a few tweaks.

• A go-to for percussion synthesis
• Also excellent at leads and basses
• Additive/FM digital synth with root and inspiration in the analog world.
• CV over every parameter
• Dedicated envelope output
• Encoder tuning

Basimilus Iteritas Alia is the successor to the original Basimilus Iteritas Alter. It was developed to sound nearly identical, with added features and new firmware-swapping capabilities."

OXI CORAL FW 2.0 Tutorial - How to Use the New ACID Engine


video upload by OXI Instruments

"The upgraded ACID engine is included in the CORAL 2.0 release, out now!

This is our take on the 303-style synth: a variable-shape virtual analog oscillator that seamlessly morphs from the classic Saw to Square and Pulse waveforms with dynamic PWM capabilities. There is one post-filter distortion and the edgy filter has been finely tuned for a gritty sound.
You can add accents via MIDI or via the AMP CV input. Morph controls the accent amount.

CONTROLS:
harm: controls the overdrive distortion
timbre: defines the oscillator waveform
morph: sets the accent amount

How to get glides?
- Use a pair of V/oct CV and Gate and send glides from your sequencer or change the pitch while gate is active. - If using MIDI, create a MONO (1-voice) part and send legato notes (almost overlapping notes should also be enough to trigger a glide).

How to get accents?
- You can feed CV modulation to any of these (for example, the Vel or Mod outputs of a sequencer). With MIDI, you can play with the velocity levels.

This new release adds a delay effect and other improvements 🙌🏻

As always, all sounds are played by Coral! 🧨

Korg 770 Analog Synthesizer

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this listing

"Here's your chance to own this rare historic synth. All knobs, keys, pots and wood-housing is original. Everything has been cleaned and everything is functioning. This thing produces beautifully warm bass and lead sounds. And the ring modulator will take you into some wild sci-fi territories too. Only major blemish is a chipped key (see last photo) key still is fully functional.

The Korg 770 is a monophonic analog synthesizer introduced by Korg in 1976. Based on the same circuitry as the two-VCO version of the Mini-Korg, the 770 offered a more conventional re-packaging, and some control improvements to make the synth more versatile.

VCO 1 offered five choices of waveform, with triangle, sawtooth, square, pulse, and a pulse-width-modulated (rate controlled by an LFO) pulse wave on tap, or an external input could be selected. The VCO included an octave select switch with six settings, including a 64' deep bass setting. VCO 2 produced only a sawtooth wave, or it could be ring modulated against VCO 2, or any of three varieties of noise could be selected. The tuning could be offset from VCO 1. A blend control allowed the user to select the mix of the two signal sources. Other controls at the right side of the panel allowed the user to apply an "auto bend", or vibrato controlled by a dedicated LFO separate from the main LFO. (There were no pitch or mod wheels.)

As technology has improved, it has become possible for manufacturers to produce increasingly complex synthesizers. This has led to the creation of synths that trade off easeof-use for maximum sound design potential, spreading hundreds upon hundreds of options and parameters throughout dizzying interfaces, full of tabs and menus. They provide oscillators and filters with such immense algorithmic precision that any soul or character is stripped away before it has a chance to flourish in the sound. Integrate is not like that.

Integrate has been designed with the goal of creating an old-school virtual analog that has just as much personality as any of the classics, paired with a fantastic user interface that makes exploring the sonic possibilities an effortless pleasure. It cannot do everything, but this is intentional; limitations breed creativity. No longer will you spend hours scrolling through lists of wavetables, paralyzed by the impossible task of deciding which is the best to use – a question that has no right answer. Instead, Integrate has a simple two-page layout where every parameter has been selected for its unique axis of inspiration. Every dial, slider and button is waiting to delight you as you delve into a world of aural possibilities.

Many thanks to fdigl for providing me a NFR license for this plugin! Next video will feature some custom patches made by me.

"The old-school virtual analog synthesizer: reimagined and perfected.

A synthesizer optimized for creativity.

Integrate follows in the footsteps of the virtual analog classics we still love today, bringing together a straightforward user interface with an intricate and colorful sound engine.

Four mighty oscillators.
The four main oscillators come equipped with a selection of 74 waveforms and a flexible noise generator.
The traditional waveforms (sine, sawtooth, square and triangle) all have a specially chosen parameter that can be modulated, allowing you to creating evolving sounds. The noise generator has tweakable color, and it also supports key tracking for an effect reminiscent of early game consoles.
Also featuring FM, RM and hard sync, there's a world of possibilities waiting to be unlocked in these oscillators.
There's also a sub oscillator sporting three waveforms, ready to quickly beef up your patch.

Have it your way.
Integrate lets you configure the character of the oscillators, giving you the power to shape the sound of your patches from the very start of the signal path.

Pick between the “Clean” rendering mode for a modern touch, or the “Digital” mode to add a gritty punch to your sound.

Make anything super.
Oscillators A and B both sport a unison section, letting you turn a simple waveform into a 7 voice beast. Configure the detune and mix, or enable “Stereo” to spread the voices across the channels. You'll soon discover how much of a monster Integrate is at fat, anthemic sounds, perfect for mesmerizing listeners of any genre.

The latest technology.
Integrate is available in the new CLAP plugin format, boasting advanced features like non-destructive polyphonic parameter modulation and note stacking. We're proud to join its community of developers who are pioneering the latest in audio technology.

Information, only when you need it.
To keep the interface compact and free from distractions, Integrate keeps extra information about parameters neatly tucked away in popups that only show when you're interacting with the relevant controls.

Waveforms, envelopes, frequency spectrums all pop up as soon as you need them, and then instantly hide away once you're done with them.

Explore new territory.
Integrate isn't an emulation of an existing synth. Instead, it's a brand new design, waiting for you to explore what it's capable of. Dive into a world of characterful oscillators, screaming filters, chaotic LFOs, and dreamy reverbs. There's bound to be something that'll captivate your imagination.

Dannysound / Tobinski System Test


video upload by Dannysound

"Testing the system for Superbooth 24 - The new modules also feature a name change as the brand is slowly moving over to Tobinski.
New modules due to be released this year are:

Sequencer - 2 banks of 8 voltage sliders, each bank referenced by 2 independent 8 step sequencers for a total 4 sequencers. Each sequencer features start and end loop points plus external clock inputs. The sequencer has 8 voltage outputs, 6 gate outputs plus transport controls for the internal clock.

Sequencer Expander - Adds a host of extra functions to control each of the 4 sequencers. Including CV over loop start and end points, gate length, step order and many more...

Dual LFOs - 2 LFOs with 16 waveform types. One LFO can be synced to a clock while the other resets to an incoming pulse, plus cv and cross-modulation options for all parameters.

Harmonic Timing Generator - Can be used as a Harmonic Oscillator or Harmonic LFO that can clock each the 4 sequencers in the Sequencer module. The module features multiplier inputs x2, x3, x5 and x7 to multiply the internal oscillator or external sources. It also has 3 outputs for the multiplied waveforms that can be CV or manually addressed using the pushbutton switches or pots.

Interpolating Scanner - Internally connected to the Harmonic Timing Generator and features not only an 8 input scanner with CV options but also has 8 VCAs that act separately from the scanner with their own outputs, plus mixer outputs for ODD, ALL and EVEN for both the scanner and VCAs to allow for stereo effects among other possibilities.

Dual LPG/VCA - 2 x LPG/VCAs in one 6hp module that combine the Dannysound MM VCA based on the classic Mini Moog VCA and also the classic Buchla LPG design (used throughout this clip!) so famous for it's acoustic tone.

Come say hello at Superbooth, I'll be in the Bungalow Dorf with some other great manufacturers!"
