In this post, we discuss simple (synth) envelopes. “Simple” meaning simpler than ADSR.Read more "Synth Envelopes: The Simple Ones"
Following in the series on posts about synth envelopes, here’s the promised case study on the venerable Korg Wavestation – finally!Read more "Synth Envelopes – Case Studies: Korg Wavestation"
In Korg’s quest to become the one-stop-shop for all synth needs, the “Logue” series encompasses the analogue(-hybrid) keyboard synths. The Minilogue is a true four-voice analogue polysynth. Is this really a proper polysynth at a great price, or just another toy synth with four voices?Read more "Review: Korg Minilogue"
Over 500 bucks for a single-oscillator synth module without even a filter – are you nots? No, I’m not. See what’s so great about the Make Noise 0-CoastRead more "Review: Make Noise 0-Coast"
Today’s video completes the first stage of my All-Analogue Synth Setup thingie The setup was mostly unchanged from the last round – the aux chains had been separated into one with three delays (fed by the Volca Kick) and one with one delay (fed by the Minibrute/A100 combo). At a tempo of 105bpm, it’s a […]Read more "“Wenig” – State One of the All-Analogue Prototype Completed"
Along the same realms as in the last post, this one had actual video recording. The audio got a little too hot for my tastes (note to self: never expect it works “just like last week” for an all-analogue, preset-free setup). There’s a more complex beat from the Volca Kick (if only so much more), […]Read more "All-Analogue Synth Setup Continued"
I’ve been talking about it for a long time – this is the first proper action: I recorded a synth track using an all-analogue signal chain.Read more "POC: The All-Analogue Signal Chain"
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"
The christmas season does have advantages – like receiving gifts which, in the best case, are a Korg Volca Kick. This latest offering in Korg’s highly interesting Volca series of small, low-priced synthesizers, follows suit on the Beats, Bass, Keys, Sample and FM. “Kick”, so that means it can only do kick sounds, making it […]Read more "A New Synth – Korg Volca Kick"
Here’s my seasonal wish/gift list – the things you might want to wish for if you are or give if you know a synth/music kinda guy.Read more "A Seasonal Gift/Wish List for the Synth People"
