Moog Music today released this mini-documentary to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moog Modular Synthesizer.
Fifty years ago, on October 12, 1964, Dr. Robert Moog introduced, at the Audio Engineering Society’s (AES) New York convention, an instrument that would revolutionize the world of music and instrument design.
Audio Damage has announced that the Sequencer 1, its new Eurorack step sequencer, is now available.
According to the company, the ADM06 Sequencer 1 is ‘the most sophisticated Euro-rack sequencer available”. Continue reading
SchneidersBuero’s Andreas Schneider shared this video of a Tiptop Audio Modular Workshop, featuring Konstantin Gervis.
Topics covered include:
- Modular synthesis in general: history and various formats
- Modern day modulars: the eurorack explosion, benefits of using modular synthesizer in a digital age
- Tip Top Audio: detailed modules overview
- Composing with Tip Top Audio modular system
- Playing Live
Dtronics released this sneak preview video for the Digidrum, described as an ’80’s style Eurorack drum module’.
Here’s what they have to say about the Digidrum Euro module:
With a 80’s soundset ( 8 sounds ). the samples are recorded with an Oberheim Prommer to get the right sound.
The unit also accepts home made sounds ( you have to put them in an serial eeprom or you can buy complete soundsets) or you can place one original 4K eprom with your Linndrum / DMX sound.
In the video demo, multiple Digidrum modules are sequenced as a modular drum machine.
Dave Smith Instruments recently introduced the DSM01 Curtis Filter – a version of his classic Sequential-style filter in a Eurorack module.
Smith calls the DSM01 Curtis Filter ‘the very heart and soul of the Dave Smith sound’.
The Pittsburgh Modular Time Runner is an analog clock divider and programmable pattern generator for Eurorack modular synthesizers.
The Time Runner utilizes a voltage-controlled dual logic core to create a wide range of programmable gate patterns.
The TimeRunner starts with a single clock source and divides it down into four individual channels. The output of each channel is based on a complex relationship between the clock source, a clock divider, and a chain of switchable and voltage controlled logic options. The result is a unique and extremely musical patten generator.
How It Works
The signal path of the TimeRunner starts with an internal or external clock source. The clock is split using a divider into 4 cascading channels creating even /2, /4, /8, /16 divisions of the clock source. Continue reading
