no news news IIXVLII fast forward autumn 2016

Ok, time to send some music and little nice news out..

1) Zibra is a cool guy

he always was – look for the term “look mum, no computer” ;)

2) Tim Exile has made something (free) for us – Slow (freezing any audio stream) – is quite self explanatory, so I just mention it
(Deutsche Info hier)

3) this is some nice female voice synthpop which is just nice: Kanga – something upcoming (from LA btw.)

4) and this project impressed my by it’s nice imagery: Genesis 2bTruman (that name didn’t impress me as much as the images do) -> Genesis Computer Synthesizer – Superhirn für Musik
genesis-13731054_312659285742808_3660182632009068349_o genesis-14066348_327362660939137_2543079394200328510_o genesis-14520336_343734979301905_444654364759539750_n

right – it’s the time of post-Roland-Behringer-AppleMacbook awaiting Maschinenfest prequelililility. time to make music or get mad, or matt, Matt Smith. ask the docta..

time for a number
5) Ralf Hildenbeutel – Spark is very electronic but floating through acoustic vibes and gets back to electronics again – in a very good way. enjoy this:

(ich sehe, es gibt ein Interview mit ihm hier).

6) I am not a number!
7) don’t call me Dave. Nenn mich nicht Dave.
8) Le Grami

9) (Zoé) Zanias did a tour

10) expect some turkey-related-stuff like synthgiving for cheaper synths in autumn – especially software will be offered cheaper within those super american black fridays and blue & cyber mondays.. don’t tell me I didn’t warn you but I won’t post too much about it – watch the forum etc. – trumpet or george clinton?

UPDATE – it goes to eleven!

11) Well – Behringer is the 1st to control their analog synth by cyber stuff – VR glasses and augemented reality editor for the DM12.

Der Nerd spricht dies: DeepMind 12 – Analoger Behringer Synthesizer 2016 – braucht der Mensch mehr #Cyber beim Klangbau?

Synthstrom Audible “Deluge” – Sampler / Sequencer

Samplers look like controllers, controllers like samplers or Sequencers. This one is a hardware sequencer and reminds of the Novation Ciruit – that got the 3rd update to make sampling possible (or at least to upload your own samples to it).

UPDATE: how it looks like – finally 720+50€ + VAT is quite a price – and that’s for pre-orderers, the final one will be more towards the 1k€.

Here’s something new from a new company called the Deluge” –
let’s liste the features – but also tell: it’s a prototype, it has no price and there are 20 users so far, so it will be posted later..

atm it is:
Sequencer, Synth, Sampler
16×8 Pads, all colour LED Pads
Min 48, up to 64 voices (dynamically by DSP power)
64MB RAM, 32GB exp. via SD Card
12 min sample time per sample
FX and classic structures, multimode filter, ENVs, LFOs (not exactly known atm)
4 Waveforms (Synth)
MIDI in/out, USB
2x CV, 4x Gate out, Trigger In (Clock)
Battery inside
built in speaker / microphone – mobile concept!
has hz/v and 0-X V/okt with adjustment

start: 25.9.2016

Düsseldorf und Berlin and one in my home – thanks for that! really nice!

Korg Minilogue Polysynth + Akai AX coming back

Korg just registeredMinilogue” sounds and IS very analogue, very synth and it is polyphonic and has a 16 step modulation sequencer.
in mono mode it has 2 OSCs 1 Suboscillator, in poly it has just 2 OSCs. in dual mode it has these 2 voices doubled, so 4 OSCs sounds and can be detuned.

the only unclear thing is a rack version, that might happen – but may just be some messing around with image processing software (not to mention one of those companies..) – maybe done by him since the phones jack is missing and possibly the “Sprechkäse” is another cool joke.

but from here all is confirmed – you can already buy one of these:
minilogue size

USB/MIDI in/out – Sync Clock in/out

Minilogue Specs (database)

it is 4 voice polyphonic,

it has a 16 step sequencer with 4 motion sequences (moving the knobs and record them), not yet clear if the sequence transposes…

so it is a lot like an advanced Microkorg or MS2000/Radias – but analog with

Crossmod, Ringmod and Sync and all Standard things and even Chords in the Arpeggiator.

classic dual ADSR-envelopes and LFO. So this is sort of an analog Microkorg, but of course not featuring the digital things but is technically the most affordable analog poly synth with this feature set.

there is a shape knob per VCO, so you can do PWM, Saw Mod in a PWM manner and triangle mangling likewise.

LFO seems fast enough for audio speed (again!) thanks.

In Mono Mode it has a Sub OSC as well.

delay before or after filter which is really cool for short feedback echoes!

Unverbindliche Preisempfehlung des Hersteller inkl.19% MwSt.
KORG minilogue: 713,00 EUR – Lieferzeit: Mitte Januar 2016

Minilogue Structure

2 & 4 pole low pass filter (MS10 style)
and static sum high pass filter (thinning out things for all voices)

to me Korg did a lot of things right except missing the mod wheel.
korg sequencer minilogue

it seems so.

Credit to /u/frankgilcrest123 who posted the following to Reddit from a gearslutz thread. He wrote:

Surprised this has not made it over here yet. Over on the Gearslutz forum there has been talk of a new analog polysynth from korg. It will be around $500 and it is looking pretty slick. A few have confirmed the specs have been leaked on Russian gear sites and a french synth forum.

Description KORG Minilogue:

KORG Minilogue – is a  4-voice polyphonic synthesizer, with built-in reverb & delay effects.  Synthesizer has a MS-kind of sound analog engine, quick access to the 100 factory 100 user presets – all can be overwritten (afaik), 8 voice mode to create its configuration of 4 voices – unison, polyphony, and so on. 41 knobs, oscilloscope in real time gives a visual check of sound, 16-step sequencer with automation polyphonic up to 4 parameters synthesizer and more.

Clock: Sync In and Sync Out interfaces with Electribe & Volca.



Forum/Diskussion und Neues dazu: Korg Minilogue – Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer

French colleagues just reviewed it..

minilogue opened mini 1

Akai AX returning (analog synths)..

Akai says they will bring back the AX series..

It’s easy to forgot how great the analog AX series synths sounded. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of its release, check out this ‪#‎tbt‬ sound demo video. Might be a great board for us to bring back…

Smiley Synth SM01 – Analog Polyphonic Synth

Analog und ohne Chips – 12 Oszillatoren (also 6stimmig mit 2 OSCs pro Stimme) – einfache Struktur – 1x LFO, 2x ADSR EG
Er heißt Smiley, weil der Entwickler wirklich so heißt!
Die Oberfläche wirkt so, als gäbe es nur wenige Modulationsmöglichkeiten – PWM gibt es schon, aber der Rest muss offenbar anders geregelt werden. Irgendwie cool aber vielleicht auch etwas zu simpel?

Discrete 6 voice fully polyphonic analog polysynth.
12 oscillators, 6 filter envelopes, 6 VCA envelopes, based on a vintage monosynth, but updated with precision components.
LFO mod individually assignable to voices and filter. Each oscillator individually detunable for huge vintage polysynyth sound.
Entirely handbuilt in recycled redgum by Jim Smiley.
Visit Found Sound & the SM-01 virtually via http://www.foundsound.com.au/stock?se…

UVI Falcon – add as many LFOs / envs as you like – Sampling & Synth

so viele LFOS und Hüllkurven wie man tragen kann für den neuen UVI Falcon, ein fast-modulares Konzept. Das beste ist, das zweite Video zu schauen.

  • 4 OP FM
  • PD
  • Subtraktive Synthese
  • Samples / Sample Mapping / Sample Slices
  • Key/Vel-Switches
  • Mix Synth & Samples
  • drag & drop filter, oscs, ..

if you go modular you need cables – but sometimes you don’t – if you just click your LFOs and ENVELOPES to be added to anything you want to be modulated. that’s the “near” modular concept of Falcon – a new synth by UVI who zoomed on emulations a lot in the past – this time it is a synth with sampling. here’s a demo (second video for everyone who want to know):
