Radio City (jamming w/live FM radio & tape loop)

video by poorness studios

"I decided to give this idea a try and I was fairly pleased with the results. I'm using a ByronStatics KCS-315 AM/FM radio and a Sony TCM-200DV variable-speed cassette player along with my Volca Bass, Volca Beats, and Microbrute synthesizers. The 7-second tape loop you hear was made by The Void Electronics in Ireland.

I made a playlist of other videos that involve cassettes: [below]

If you like tape loops, I highly recommend The Void Electronics on Etsy:"

Eurorack / Guitar Jam 7 (TX Wiggles 65)

poorness studios

"It's been a while since I did one of these Eurorack/guitar jams. I sent the guitar through 2 delay pedals running at different rates and then a reverb pedal. It gives a very unique sound that blends well with the synth textures."

Dreams of Feedback (TX Wiggles 64)

Published on May 25, 2020 poorness studios

"This is a fun little patch. The Pittsburgh oscillator's triangle wave is fed into MI Rings (as a resonator), then into the Chronoblob delay, on to the Aion 107A fixed filter bank, and finally into MI Clouds. The delay repeats are clocked by Pamela's Workout and every 8 cycles, a new random voltage is sent to the FM input of the oscillator. This creates a faux melody even though its only 1 note droning the entire time. Additionally, the output of the fixed filter bank is multed to the mixer and then mixed back with itself to create a feedback loop. Add a little bit of modulation from Batumi... and this is the result."

The Wondrous Sonic Beauty of the Fixed Filter Bank (TX Wiggles 63)

Published on May 22, 2020 poorness studios

"NOTE: Headphones or studio speakers recommended!

The Aion 907A wasn't a module I was traditionally interested in, but I found a good deal so I decided to give it a shot. Wow! This thing is really cool. In this video, I patched up a basic 2 oscillator FM patch with some subtle modulation. The 907A is like a canvas that lets you pain with frequencies."

Guitar Bits (TX Wiggles 62)

Published on May 18, 2020 poorness studios

"I was just messing around with Eurorack and guitar this morning and came up with this glitchy combination of sounds. It uses the Dave Smith Mopho & Korg Volca Beats along with the modular and the guitar. The guitar goes into the Pittsburgh InOut and then into the Dwarfcraft Hax and finally through MI Clouds. Both are heavily modulated by various CV sources."

3 Synths, 3 Notes (TX Wiggles 61)

Published on May 11, 2020 poorness studios

"I was just messing around with my Mopho and I really liked the way these 3 notes sounded with this patch. I built this jam those 3 notes, including the Eurorack parts. It's just the Mopho, Volca Beats, and the Eurorack. I thought I'd share it with the rest of the synth nerds out there."

Synths on the Patio (TX Wiggles 60)

Published on Apr 28, 2020 poorness studios

"I decided to do some wiggling outside for a change. I took a small setup on to the patio and came up with this little jam. I used the Polivoks Mini Modular, the Volca Beat Machine, and the Korg SQ-1. It ended up sounding pretty cool."

The Digital Squall (TX Wiggles 59)

Published on Apr 20, 2020 poorness studios

"This video is yet another happy accident. I was testing out the Phonogene and patched up a simple pink noise into a filter sweep. It sounded like wind. I thought to myself... can I make the rest of the squall? Well... this is what happened next. Modular can be a fun way to battle the boredom of being stuck at home."

The Spoon Soundscape (TX Wiggles 58)

Published on Apr 18, 2020 poorness studios

"I took my latest DIY Project, the Diddley Spoon, and plugged it into the modular synthesizer. This video features the Make Noise Phonogene. The soundscape was made from a single note played on a spoon."

Angry Drone Patch (TX Wiggles 57)

Published on Mar 31, 2020 poorness studios

"Here's another musical experiment derived from self-isolation. In this video, I patch an angry drone and then explore each of the 4 voices used to create it. In case you're wondering, it's in the key of Bb. The four sound sources are: 1) Pittsburgh Waveforms thru Dwarfcraft HAX, 2) Erica Black Wavetable VCO with wavetable morphing, 3) MI Rings thru Pittsburgh Crush & Chronoblob, 4) Basimilus Iteritas Alter. The mix goes to the Doepfer Wasp filter and then to Boss RV-6. Most of the modulation comes from Batumi."

Shelter in Place (TX Wiggles 56)

Published on Mar 24, 2020 poorness studios

"Since we're all homebound, I started trying out combinations of different instruments. Here's a little jam using the Jarmaggeddon (glitch generator), Volca Beats, Volca Bass, Microbrute, and my trust ol' Les Paul. I like the way it came out. Oh... and not just one, but two cats managed to sneak into the video. Sheesh!"

Eurorack & Microbrute Jam (TX Wiggles 55)

Published on Feb 26, 2020 poorness studios

"This is nothing special, it's just a little jam I did with Microbrute and Eurorack one morning before work. It is really simple but I liked the way the various timbres sounded together, so I decided to share it."

Even More Rings in the Clouds (TX Wiggles 54)

Published on Feb 20, 2020 poorness studios

"Everyone says sending MI Rings into MI Clouds is played out. However, I feel like there are still a lot of cool tracks to be made with these two modules. This is the third video in my 'Rings in the Clouds' series. Here I send Rings into Clouds then mult the audio out back into Rings causing a Rings/Clouds feedback loop. It sounds pretty cool."

Silicon Voices (TX Wiggles 53)

Published on Dec 26, 2019 poorness studios

"A little ambient synth jam I made on Christmas Day. I used my Eurorack and the Arturia Microbrute to create this soundscape. It's a simple patch on the modular, but it reminded me of dozens of robots having conversations. Thus the title, Silicon Voices."

Coffee Bytes (TX Wiggles 52)

Published on Dec 15, 2019 poorness studios

"This is a little Sunday morning jam with my modular synthesizer and the Roland Juno Gi keyboard. Some simple percussive sounds and some drones can add up to something really moody."

The Big Feast (TX Wiggles 51)

Published on Nov 28, 2019 poorness studios

"Happy Thanksgiving all. I wanted to do a video for Thanksgiving so I came up with this. It's mainly just a morphing digital oscillator on top of a looping sequence with an Thanksgiving-themed audio track playing off my old iPod. It sounded pretty cool though."

Cigar Box Guitar + Modular Synth: Part II (TX Wiggles 50)

Published on Nov 3, 2019 poorness studios

"I woke up this morning with this cigar box guitar riff in my head so I decided to build a piece around it. The audio comes straight out of the modular synth with no additional processing.

You can find Part I here:"

Cigar Box Guitar + Modular Synth: Part I (TX Wiggles 35)

Published on Sep 22, 2018 poorness studios

"This was kinda fun. I decided to plug my CBG into the modular synth. It goes thru a homemade fuzz pedal, into the Pittsburgh InOut, then thru a Harvestman Polivoks VCF, and finally into MI Clouds. It doesn't really sound like a CBG after all that... but the twang still comes thru.

"Just for fun I decided to plug my homemade electric washboard into my modular synthesizer. Holy crap! It sounds pretty awesome. This is just a little clip of me messin' around with the two.

Cassette Soundscape 2 (TX Wiggles 48)

Published on Sep 2, 2019 poorness studios

"This is my second attempt at making a video with the circuit bent tape player. I used the Eurorack and my Roland Juno Gi to create something really weird.

This first cassette soundscape video is here: [embedded below]

You can find the tape player mod here: [posted here]

Published on Jul 28, 2019 poorness studios

"This is a first take, so it's not perfect... but I like the way it came out. I was messing around with the cassette player I modified and my Roland Juno Gi. It's a definitely moody soundscape. The wow and flutter of the deck adds a lot."

Published on Aug 8, 2019 poorness studios

"I did another mod to DIY project #28. I added a glitch button by finding a circuit inside that would make electronic noise."
