So I wanted to make a synth velocity-sensitive. More specifically, an analogue synth, and retain a fully analogue audio signal chain (because I have a project in mind for which that is important). In my setup there’s two analogue synths which I had in mind for that project: the Arturia MiniBrute, and the Korg Volca […]Read more "Making a Synth velocity-sensitive"
In part 2 of this series on synth envelopes, we’ll look at some case studies – actual implementations of synth envelopes, to align them with the theory from part 1. Instrumentation, Test Cases, and Devices under Test I tried to make the instrumentation as simple as possible: I’ll be using patches that have a (white) […]Read more "Synth Envelopes – Case Studies: Introduction and Arturia MiniBrute"
I had done something like this before – comparing three kinda dissimilar synths. This time, we’re having three contemporary analogue synths – although that’s not exactly true, as one of our competitors, the DSI Tetra, has just been discontinued. The two opponents are Waldorf’s Pulse 2, and Arturia’s MiniBrute. The three competitors Arturia’s MiniBrute has […]Read more "Synth Shootout: MiniBrute – Pulse 2 – Tetra"
It seems, everybody and his brother has an Arturia synth these days. And interestingly, a lot from the experimental community.
This is not a full-blown review, rather three different views on the synth: what is cool, what is uncool, and what you need to be aware of.Read more "Three different Views on Arturia’s MiniBrute"
