Monome Modular – White Whale Step Sequencer

modular | monome. is a newer initiative from the guys who invented the matrix button controller before launchpad and push were even made – you got one Module and the Monome Controller – the knob on the module can be used to record values and automate them – there is quite a large number of patterns that can be adressed (64) and can control 2 CVs with one module – lots of standard chase light / TR type sequencer features are in like looping a pattern etc.

and it’s called prohabilistic so it may do what it says.. to set steps that may tend to trigger at a percentage XX..

the $280 Module (you need a Monome Controller as well) looks like this:

2 cv out, 4 trig out – 1 knob for automation record, one for the clock

Roland SBX1 Sync Box (USB, MIDI, DIN, CV, Gate)

SBX-1: SYNC BOXis coming- they had one under the table at the Musikmesse but here is the final Aira-Addition to System 1, TR8, VT and TB3…

it has 3 MIDI Ports for the obvious tasks and another 3 for DIN Sync and you can assign those 2 DIN Out Ports to clock with 24 or 48 clicks so you can use Korg and Roland DIN machines in nice sync and there is CV and Gate for analog connection as well. – so this is the first real “analog” interfacing device from Roland since the SHs. and it has USB to connect it all to the computer.
Note this is what machines like the TR707 may have done to you before, it can be the Master to keep track and sync all vintage stuff to the new ones and it has SHUFFLE .. so this is where to press play on, continue and tap in your tempo for ALL machines as a master clock.

Mit diesem Teil gibt es eine Swing-fähige Masterclock für alles, was an DIN, MIDI, USB und auch CV/Gate Signalen anliegen muss um andere Geräte im Tempo zu halten: Roland – SBX-1 (Syncbox) im Forum.

Sync Examples – they also add to use 5pole Cable for DIN Sync (of course) since MIDI is only 3 Pins connected instead of all 5 – important.
there’s 2 ways – using the Sync Box as a Master or the Computer is the Master that is using the SBX as a Sync-Helper:

the Computer as the BOSS

the SBX being the BOSS (btw: Boss is also owned by Roland but not meant here, nice try… !!)

SynthDAX™ – Aktuelle Synthesizer-Preise

SynthDAX – Die Preisliste im Forum -

Aktuellen Preisen für Synths, Drummachines und so weiter – Bisher gab es die in der Sequencer.de Synthesizer Datenbank
aber ein Schwarm kann das besser aktuell halten als nur einer (ich), deshalb jetzt im Forum nach diesem Prinzip: Forum • SynthDAX aktuelle Synthpreise.

Jeder Synthesizer hat einen Thread (Beitrag) und aktualisiert wird er durch posten des aktuelleren Preises. Was noch nicht da steht, wird einfach neu aufgemacht.
Grade eben eröffnet und schon 12 Einträge.. ;)

UPDATE: schon 27 Synth Preis Angaben – innerhalb weniger Minuten! Danke dafür schon jetzt!

Update 2: Menge auf 100 vergrößert pro Seite – für dieses Subforum.. *freu* – sichtbar geschaltet.


This is a collection via Forum of current prices of synths at the forum, moving the synthDB content of my Sequencer.de Database to the real crowd which is faster and better and more up to date than maintaining 900 Synths all by myself

Have you ever heard of the Sonic Potions LXR?
It is an open DIY drum synth by Sonic Potions. Members of the Sonic Potions forum want to show with their contributions that the LXR is much more than that – it’s an live performace tool.
All tracks are direct recordings of live performances using the LXR as the only instrument flavoured by external effects.
In addition to the first track, which is a seamless mix of all contributions by Möbius, the individual tracks are also included in this release.
So, have fun to dive into the world of the Sonic Potion LXR and explore what can be done with this wonderful machine!

This compilation ranging from ambient to house is dedicated to Julian
Schmidt, the founder of Sonic Potions and the creator of the LXR
