LFO++ Prototype Auction To Benefit The Bob Moog Foundation

Q167_SynthesizersDotCom_LFO_plusplusAnalog synth module-makers are auctioning a rare prototype of their Q167 LFO++ module, with proceeds to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

The auction runs through 1pm (Pacific time) next Wednesday, December 30, 2015.

This one-of-a-kind module, built and signed by designer Roger Arrick, is fully functional, though it differs slightly from the final production units.

The Q167 LFO++ is a pure analog module with some unique features, including a precision LFO that operates into the audio range and tracks a 1v/octave keyboard or sequencer, and a wave shaping section that creates sine waves, anti-sine waves, curved sawtooth, gates, and more.

Designer Roger Arrick of shared this video, demonstrating his new LFO++ module design.

The LFO++ is an interesting Dotcom MU module design that is a sort of ‘über-LFO’, combining elements of the functionality of an LFO, envelope generator, VCA and more into a single-width panel  Continue reading

LFO (The Movie) Now Available On DVD

lfo-movieAntonio Tublen’s Swedish microbudget scifi picture LFO is now available on DVD.

LFO is a dark sci fi comedy, about a sound engineer that discovers how to hypnotize people with audio.

Here’s the official description:

Robert, an amateur sound engineer, spends hours in in his basement full of wires and oscillators experimenting with sound waves. After he finds a frequency that allows him to hypnotize people, he lures his attractive new neighbors into his house to act as test subjects for his discovery.

Under Robert’s control, the oblivious couple is manipulated into increasingly elaborate role-playing games that allow Robert to indulge in his most megalomaniacal fantasies.

But when investigations into the suspicious death of his wife threaten to bring an end to his demented operation, Robert must use his scientific breakthrough on a much larger scale in order to continue his warped research.

You can view the LFO trailer below: Continue reading

Brute LFO Turns Your iOS Device Into A Modular Synth Controller

brute-lfo-ipadBrute LFO is a new app that turns your iOS device into a modular synth controller.

If you have a hardware synth that allows you to use external gear to modulate the pitch, the filter, or any other parameter, your can plug the Brute LFO into the CV in and start playing.

Brute LFO consists of three separate LFOs. LFO 1 and 2 can be controlled using the control elements in the top half of the screen. The big knob in he middle sets the rate of both the LFOs. Additionally you can change the waveforms of the LFOs, detune LFO 2 and change its phase. The amount knob in the top half also sets the overall amount of the modulation.

The elements on the bottom half (LFO 3) can be used to modulate the frequency of LFO 1 and 2.
And the brute switch destroys everything!

Brute LFO also offers a pad-style controller.  Continue reading
