Here’s a first look at the
HEXTEP MIDI Step Sequencer, a analog style step sequencer.
t’s got some interesting tricks up its sleeve, including a built in voice & speaker for setting up sequencers, MIDI effects and a Euclidean Rhythm mode.
Pricing and availability are to be announced, but we’ve got a video sneak preview, plust details below.
Check it out and let us know what you think of the HEXTEP!

Sunday Synth Jam: It looks like Korgator is doing his part to keep the world safe for Berlin School synth jams.
Berlin School is like the classics of synth music – building on the early styles of Klaus Schulze & Tangerine Dream.
Here’s Korgator’s recipe for
Time Run – Electronic Impressionen Part I:
Start the Sequence/Arpeggiator from Oberheim OB 12
Play the Sound from the Korg Mono Poly
Effects come from Boss SX 700
Martin Peters demonstrates step sequencing with a Doepfer MAQ16/3 & a Synthesizers.com Q60 step sequencer.
The video starts off pretty slow, but by the second section, below, Peters develops some interesting Berlin School style hypnotic sequences.

This is a demo of using a control voltage sequencer with guitar to sequence effects.
Technical details below.
Remember when we said that the
Apple iPad was going to “be the biggest music technology introduction of the year” ( What The iPad Means For Music) and the consensus was that we were fanboys on crack? Continue reading

This video captures a little old-school style step sequencing with a
Synthesizers.com modular synthesizer.
An analog delay module like the
Blacet Time Machine would be the icing on this cake.
mik300z makes a triumphant return to the Synthtopia Sunday Synth Jam with a Giorgio Moroder inspired electronic disco improv:
Based on “here to eternity”. This was all going swell until the ESQ1 drifted out of pitch near the end (not my bum notes for a change lol) Some Human league influence here too:)
It’s hard to overestimate the influence Moroder has had on electronic dance music, isn’t it?

Random Chimes of the Continent
This musical composition uses arpeggiated sequences from the Korg R3 synthesizer combined to produce a rhythmic, yet ambient experimentation. Arpeggiated sequences were cascaded with surreal synthesizer analogue pads creating sonic textures that form a tonal backdrop to carry away the listener to another time and space.
High resonating filter frequencies combine with the bass tones for a very full stereo effect richly endowed with reverb. The visuals for the music are pure video synthesis, using electronically-generated shapes and modulations built up layer upon layer forming modulating optical rhythms. It is the closest one can come to analogue video synthesis using the resources of vision mixing and linear modulation techniques.
The work exists as an audiovisual experience, with the music and images forming a pulsating, unifying composite. Both hypnotic and meditative, several aural and visual combinations are used to bring about an interesting immersive experience.
