Roland Canada Product Specialist Jacob Watters shared this series of video tutorials that explore the basics of subtractive synthesis. The tutorials are created on the Roland System-1, but they are general enough to apply to most subtractive synths. The first video, above, looks at making string synth sound.
frequencies (a / continuum) is an audiovisual installation, created by Nicolas Bernier, that lets users explore acoustic additive synthesis. The work was inspired by the Helmoltz Sound Synthesizer, considered by some to be the first electronic synthesizer. Here’s what Bernier has to say about the project:
Artificial Noise‘s Neil Burnby let us know that they are producing a second run of the LAB:1 Synthesizer. The LAB:1 Synthesizer is a 100% analog, 6 oscillator experimental synthesizer. It features 3 audio oscillators (with Triangle, Sawtooth and Square waveforms), 3 low frequency oscillators (with Triangle and Square waveforms) and 1 voltage controlled low pass filter.
Developer Cyrille Henry let us know about a new Arduino-based monophonic synthesizer, the One Chip Synth (OSC-2). The OCS-2 is a complete virtual analog synth voice in Eurorack format. Here are a couple of video demos:
Music software and hardware developer Arturia has introduced its MatrixBrute Analog Synthesizer at the 2016 NAMM Show. The MatrixBrute is a programmable monophonic / duophonic analog synthesizer, outfitted with three ‘Brute’ oscillators, Steiner-Parker and ladder filters, three envelope generators, analogue effects and a matrix-style modulation matrix.
The Collidoscope, above, is a hardware synth prototype, created by researchers Ben Bengler & Fiore Martin, that is a ‘musical microscope’ for up to four people. “Think of Collidoscope as a musical microscope that allows you to zoom into sounds and explore their beautiful peculiarities, and in the next moment, to play and perform your sonic discoveries like… Read More The Collidoscope Synthesizer – A Collaborative ‘Musical Microscope’
