monstrumWave 2.5, Full Version Available Now!!!

monstrumMedia proudly announces monstrumWave 2.5 Final, available now from monstrummedia.com for $39.99!

monstrumWave 2.5 is a cross-platform (Win/Mac/Linux) fully featured standalone and VST/AU MIDI/Sysex editor for the Waldorf Microwave II, XT and XTk synthesizers.

If you just want some info or are interested in beta testing the features to the next 3.0 update including a fully featured, interactive wavetable editor, or the upcoming editor for the waldorf pulse, pulse+, pulse 2 or other projects, check in at monstrummedia.com/forum.

Here are four demonstration videos showing monstrumWave 2.5 in action!



Playlist
monstrumWave 2.5 Demo - Arpeggiator + Mod Matrix
monstrumWave 2.5 Demo - Wave Envelope + Modulation Matrix
monstrumWave 2.5 Demo - use within FLstudio
monstrumWave 2.5 Demo - Arpeggiator + Analog In

monstrumWave 2.5 can be yours now, just head over to www.monstrummedia.com and prepare to get kicked out of your apartment for noise complaints!!!

Update via Rob Wentz the developer in the comments below: "Just wanted to follow up here that monstrumWaveXT is currently a stand-alone editor, VST/AU functionality has been "downgraded" to "beta" status.

This is all because I restructured things so now monstrumWaveXT does not require any ctrlr install to work. There is a monstrumWaveXT application file for the stand-alone editor (which now has full wavetable and waveform editing and arrangement ability!) and there is a beta VST for os x and one for Windows. Development is ongoing and I'm getting a lot of great feedback from users, so the "beta" should be lifted from the name in due time.

Also on a similar note I recently released an editor -monstrumWave1 for the original Waldorf Microwave. It has all of the features monstrumWaveXT has in terms of parameter AND waveform/wavetable editing capabilities."

Syntorial: The Ultimate Synthesizer Tutorial


On Kickstarter

"Syntorial - The Ultimate Synthesizer Tutorial

Syntorial is a fully interactive training program designed to help users program sounds quicker and easier. Syntorial differs from other synth tutorials in two very important ways:

1. It's software. The current offerings of synth tutorials are either books, videos, articles or websites. And while they can only present information, a program can interact with the user. And that's just what Syntorial does. Through a series of challenges Syntorial gradually builds up your sound design skills so that by the end of the entire tutorial, you're doing it. "Look Ma!"

2. Most tutorials focus on the technical ins-and-outs of synthesizers. Or, they show you how to make a few specific sounds. They fail to address the MOST important skill needed to program synthesizers: a trained ear. Using our Synthesis By Ear method, Syntorial takes you step-by-step through 58 different common synth parameters and trains your ear to instantly recognize how each one effects sound. "Seriosuly, Ma! Look at me! I'm doin' it!!!"

We've launched a KickStarter campaign to help finish development and get Syntorial out into the world. Go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/380200165/syntorial-the-ultimate-synthesizer-tutorial to learn more."

Analog Synthesis Course by MusicInclusive LLC

"MusicInclusive™ LLC is an Indie label and publishing company that is also interested in artist education. They will be offering two 3-day live instructor-led hands-on courses in analog synthesis at the Marriott Hotel, Mechanisburg, PA, one starting Oct 17 and one Dec 18, entitled:

ANALOG SYNTHESIS (1.25V) - SYNTHESIZER PROGRAMMING : "How to make the knobs, dials, sliders, cables - and yes, even keyboards - do something cool!"

The course will cover the basics of analog synthesis - from psychoacoustics to waveforms, from oscillators to filters, from envelopes to patches. Training is open for anyone - from senior high-school to professional musician - and is designed to teach you how to make the best use of your analog synthesizer or VST® or RTAS® plugin, iPad® synthesizer application such as Animoog® or the the Korg iMS-20®, or any rack or patch-based digital or modeling or keyboard synthesizer based on an analog foundation.

Students will learn how to generate, modify and shape waveforms to produce all kinds of sounds - from emulating natural instruments to grungy synth basses and sparkling synth leads - from sound effects to space music, and you will get hands-on experience using both real and virtual synthesizers in the classroom.

Detailed information may be found here: http://www.musicinclusive.com/analog_synthesis_125V

Places are limited to ONLY 12 ATTENDEES PER CLASS and if you are interested in securing a place, you may BOOK NOW directly on the site here: http://www.musicinclusive.com/store

If you want more information, send an email to: inquiries@musicinclusive.com

We have other courses in the works as well - on Animoog and the iMS-20 - which will be followup classes to the Analog Synthesis class and will build on the principles learned there.

See you on the 17th October!"

monstrumWave - Waldorf Microwave II/XT/XTk Editor

"A FREE DEMO IS AVAILABLE NOW: www.monstrummedia.com
Just an overview, this can be run in standalone mode or as a vst inside your favorite DAW.. so you basically can use the panel like you would any VST synth emulator, except the sound engine is the actual piece of gear. TONS of features here, lots of things you can't do with the synth alone, and added GUI enhancements for easy parameter settings and visual ques.

Key Features:
Wave and Free envelopes can be edited as an actual envelope plotted on an x-y grid. time/level parameters can be set simultaneously by moving a single point on the envelope. Loop Key on and Loop Key Off are also nicely visualized on the envelope, if enabled.

Arpeggiator editor! - select any preset arp pattern and send it to a user pattern where you can edit the pattern to your liking. Red LEDs indicate preset pattern, Blue LEDs indicate user pattern.

Context sensitive knobs/dropdowns for things like Wave startwave, OSC pitchbend range, LFO delay, filter 1 extra, effects.

Pitch sliders for both Oscillators
Building off the Osc Link and Wave Link on the original synth which links modulation, you can also link parameter changes, or you can link both parameters and modulations, so adjust osc1 semitone/octave/etc, osc2 follows.

Besides all this functionality, the general consensus is that this thing just looks bad ass.

Additional notes:
When you change programs on the panel the panel sends a note off command and a program request, then sends a dump request to the synth, so all knobs/sliders/etc even the program name update on the panel to match the synth program's name and parameters.
Built in software program manager gives you the ability to save backups of your favorite programs to the panel for later use.

Ability to Load sysex/midi files from panel to the synth.

I've had a 2.x version of this panel available for free for the past year which has been downloaded several thousand times before removing the link from sourceforge this weekend when I launched the new demo.

monstrum Wave 2.5 will be available for sale soon on www.monstrummedia.com.

Upcoming features for monstrumWave 3.0 later in the year:
Wavetable Editor - it's massive. it's beautiful. it's coming soon.
Multimode Support, including multiPart step editor (arpeggiator x10)
Modulation Matrix Reloaded (map ANY parameter to an X Y surface)

Current release notes for the free demo version of monstrumWave (2.498):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
monstrumWave 2.498 BETA
August 18, 2012

------------------------------------------
New Features since 2.2:

Compatible with nightly CTRLR revs 1100< *Arpeggiator can now be edited in user mode!! *Fully interactive visual envelope editors for free and wave envelope!! Program Name now displays on-screen in the mock XT LCD screen!! MIDI in from synth LED indicator on panel, LCD contrast control Dozens of new dynamic components which appear only when available for current parameter settings (Distortion Effect Amp Type, Filter 1 Wave, etc) "Parameter Link" allows linking of Osc1 and Osc2 parameters as well as Wave1 and Wave2. Can also simultaneously link Osc/Wave parameters and modulation. "Init All" button initializes all sliders and selector boxes from max to min value. Double click any knob/slider to reset value. DEMO RESTRICTIONS: no sysex dumps to/from synth no MultiMode *Know this: -- This revision is limited to Device ID 0. Synth must be set to this ID for successful communication between the panel and synth. -- Attempting to edit preset arpeggiator pattern on red LED step buttons will change the arp mode automatically to "User" mode. After the blue User LED arp step buttons appear you may edit the arpeggiator steps. -- Some quirkyness will be noticed when dragging points on Free & Wave envelopes Current quick fix is to double click the envelope to redraw. "Quirkyness" does not effect the values being sent to the synth. --Effect parameters (p1, p2, p3) may slide out of range when switching between effect types and adjusting p1-3 due to waldorf bug. Current quick fix is to set effects drop down to "off", then back to desired effect. INSTALLATION: ****This beta release of monstrumWave requires you download and install the latest build of ctrlr for your operating system. ****The latest ctrlr builds are hosted at www.ctrlr.org, under the "Downloads" page. Save the monstrumWaveBeta.bpanelz to a desired location on your hard drive. Install Ctrlr following the installation notes currently on the ctrlr download page -> http://www.ctrlr.org/page.php?p=downloads
Pay special attention to your os's approprate VST/AU path when installing ctrlr.

Using monstrumWave
Either Open ctrlr in standalone mode (recommended) or open your favorite DAW, then load a ctrlr vst instance.

In vst mode, you must enter the panel properties (red "HAL" icon in tool bar or right click>panel properties) and adjust the MIDI settings properly.
Recommended settings: enable "Accept MIDI from Host", "MIDI Input goes to Comparator" and "Output MIDI to Host".

Set the MIDI I/O Devices appropriately. MIDI Devices are selected in the toolbar at the top. Leftmost selection box is the Input Device and channel. Output Device and channel is set to the right.

You should be able to take off running from here if you have things set right.

If you are not familiar with ctrlr, I recomend spending some time looking through the forums at www.ctrlr.org to get a feel for things.

please report any issues/bugs/suggestions to:
http://www.ctrlr.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=533

enjoy!!!"

Sequentix P3 For Sale

via this auction

"I am selling a sequential P3 sequencer designed and built by Colin Fraiser. This is one of around 200 that were built as production units. Many of these were built as kits and don't have the build quality that this one has. Worried about solar flares? This unit sports a heavy duty metal case with rack ears. I also have the wooden sides if you you are going for the retro look over the industrial. The LCD is new, original units had a green LCD that burned out. This P3 also has the MEMX expansion but the unit has an older more stable OS. All of the information you need can be found on the sequentix website.

The P3 Sequencer is an 8 track, hardware MIDI sequencer, with a user interface comprised of knobs, keys and LEDs. A sixteen character by two line PLED display provides confirmation of pattern data and access to advanced features and configuration options.

P3 allows real-time control of track mutes and simple pattern or pattern chain selection across multiple tracks, plus analogue-style editing of patterns. Each of its 384 patterns has independent values for note, velocity, tie, gate, length, gate delay, and a combination of up to four MIDI controllers, extra notes, or 'auxiliary events', per step.

P3's unique auxiliary events allow the creation of dynamically self-modifying patterns. They can grab values from other tracks, randomise steps, alter track and global settings, and much more. There are three modulation 'accumulators' per track, that can be used as LFOs, perform arpeggiation effects or enable complex pattern progressions. Furthermore, you can assign front panel knobs to modify or mask these events in real-time, allowing you to create interactive patterns that change predictably as you adjust the knobs - varying in complexity, controlling levels of randomness, even 'morphing' from one pattern to another.

A Force-to-scale option provides preset and user-defined scales to keep everything in key (but defeat-able per pattern step if required), and a configurable 'change mode' allows patterns with different lengths and/or time-bases to free-run, or be synced to a global bar.

P3 has a user configurable memory organisation that allows 3 banks of 16, 6 banks of 8, or 12 banks of 4 sixteen step patterns per track (a total of 384 patterns). Pattern length can be set from 1 to 16 steps, and multiple patterns can be chained in 'playlists' of up to 8 stages, with up to 8 repeats per stage. RAM is battery backed, and can be dumped and loaded via sysex. Each track can output on a selectable MIDI channel, or multiple tracks can be assigned to the same channel.

There are three modes of operation - play, playlist edit and pattern edit. Mode changes are allowed while the sequencer is running. In fact, the only time you need to stop P3 is for a sysex dump or firmware upgrade.

In play mode, tracks can be muted and unmuted, and 'parts' can be selected individually or in chains. Parts are used to store pattern selections (playlists) for each track, and other settings such as global transpose and force-to-scale settings.

playlist edit mode is used to select the pattern, or sequence of patterns, that will play on each track - including options for individual pattern transpose and a 'global bar' system that can keep varying length patterns running in step.

pattern edit mode is where patterns can be created and modified using the 16 step keys, and 32 knobs. The key function can be rotated between gate, tie (which can control a TB303 style auto-slide), skip and Xd (transpose defeat). The tri-colour LEDs show the current state at each step for the selected function. Pattern length can be set using a soft function key, and various other features such as pattern rotate, copy & paste, randomisation, and data 'sculpting' are present. The lower knobs are dedicated to note selection. The upper knobs can be switched between velocity, gate length, step delay and the four auxiliary functions. The auxiliaries can be assigned per pattern to any combination of MIDI continuous controllers, or the auxiliary events.

There's also a real-time record feature, that allows you to quickly enter a pattern from a master keyboard, before making fine adjustments with the knobs. Or you can over-dub new note and velocity values from your keyboard, without affecting the existing pattern rhythm. With auxes assigned to play extra notes, you can make your pattern up to 5 note polyphonic, and real-time record will record polyphonic patterns straight from a MIDI keyboard. An arpeggio capture mode allows you to use P3 like an arpeggiator, with the ability to store arpeggios as normal patterns. Internal resolution is 48 ppqn, which allows fine-tuning of step delay to create the same shuffle effects as the TR909, but with the ability to apply a different shuffle value to each step.

The unit has MIDI in, four MIDI out (single bus) and sync connections. It can run as tempo master or sync to MIDI clock, and outputs DIN sync and clock-only MIDI from a dedicated SYNC output.

For a complete description of the functionality, please consult the user manual.

The P3 CPU supports firmware updates via MIDI SysEx, so frequent new features (and occasional bug fixes) are easily added - no nasty messing about with processor swaps, and posting chips back and forth !

Details of the sysex message format for firmware update can be found here. An excellent Windows utility (written by a keen P3 owner) for sysex pattern management and firmware update is available from the Downloads area. Alternatively, the .syx update files can be replayed using any sysex utility that supports raw sysex dump files. I highly recommend the excellent MIDIOx for this."

Mutator von Mutronics Stereo Analoge Filter For Sale


For sale on ricardo.ch

"The Mutator is a stereo analogue filter and envelope follower with full control facilities. It contains two independent voltage controlled filters similar to those found in analogue synthesizers, which can be used to treat any external sound source. Each filter can be controlled from its own associated low frequency oscillator (LFO) and/or its own envelope follower section, which extracts the envelope contour of an input signal and applies it to control the cut-off frequency of the filter.

Each envelope follower can be switched to track either the envelope of the sound that is being treated by the filter, or that of an independent external control signal. This external control signal can be any audio source , eg. a drum sound, a guitar, a synth, a sampler output, or even a microphone. Thus the envelope characteristics of one sound can be superimposed onto the filtering contour of another.

Another switch on the envelope follower selects envelope follow mode or gate mode - in which the circuit detects whether a signal is above a certain threshold level before switching on.

In gate mode, the device can operate much like a dedicated noise gate unit, with the added capabilities of the analogue filter

The LFO's have four different sweep waveforms each and may be switched via a stereo link to produce stereo panning effects."

Dagda's Arp EP


"Dagda's Arp EP is the first collaboration between European musicians Zoë Blade and PIG. These low tech mixes are a stark contrast to the forthcoming album's clean versions, replacing the glossy softsynth parts with a multitracked Doepfer A-100 for a grittier, raw feel. From clangourous homebrewed drums made out of repurposed household objects, to modular analogue synthesiser parts, to bittersweet orchestral strings, this is a quirky, innovative release that spans a wide range of sounds. It is unashamedly amateur and experimental, proving once more that passion and experimentation win out over received wisdom."

"RETRO SOUND, FUTURISTIC OUTLOOK
Electro Producer uses Vintage Synths to Create Modern Sounds
Seeks New Approaches to Success as an Independent Artist

Buzzing basses, searing pads, thick drums—it’s hard to imagine that the sounds on OPERATOR’s debut EP RHAAAWWWGH! were made with technologies that have been around since the 60s. But while some of the technology may be dated, the sound is not. By combining analog synths with new, digital technologies and utilizing a radical approach to dance music production, OPERATOR has created a unique brand of electro that he believes is more “human” than so much of today’s “digital sounds.”

OPERATOR’s business model also couldn’t be further from tradition. By releasing the EP on his own label—TriSqrSaw Records—and using the power of the web and social media as promotional tools, OPERATOR has blazed a trail for himself in the independent music marketplace. Indie artists are more empowered than ever nowadays, and OPERATOR is using that to his full advantage by working with Baseware, a division of Beatport that facilitates online distribution for independent artists.

With the help of his supporters, OPERATOR was also able raise enough money through the fundraising site Kickstarter.com to print a limited run of the EP on vinyl. The records will be available on his website, operator-­‐music.com. You can also join OPERATOR’s growing community through facebook, twitter, and soundcloud (links below.)

RHAAAWWWGH! also features remix artists from three continents, | vo§uru | from Russia, What Is Lost, originally from Italy, now based in Berlin, and Todd Barton from the US. OPERATOR met | vo§uru | (who will be featured on the B side of the vinyl release) on soundcloud. After hearing some of his productions, OPERATOR approached him about a remix.

“It attests to the power of the internet to bring people together who would probably otherwise never cross paths,” OPERATOR says. He believes that having such disparate producers adds a great variety and uniqueness to the EP and hopes to work with them again.

The man behind OPERATOR, Joel Henigson, started playing music at age eight, starting on piano and guitar before moving into songwriting and computer production. In 2009, he graduated Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors of Music in Songwriting. Over the years he has become entrenched in electronic music production and works as a producer, performer, and teacher in Oregon. He owns his own studio, The Laboratory Music Studios, where he produces and writes.

TriSqrSaw Records was founded in 2011 as a home for OPERATOR and other likeminded independent artists. Featuring electro, techno, and other genres of electronic music, TriSqrSaw releases in digital formats as well as vinyl."

SHERMAN FILTERBANK AND ROTA-SYNTH IN ACTION


YouTube Uploaded by pianoloft on Jan 20, 2012

"I think, the SHERMAN FILTERBANK is one of the best analog filters ever built. It owns a warm sound with a lot of possibilities of distortion and a great screaming resonance. It allows endless combinations of its components, so you can discover surpriseing results, also if you are very familiar to it. ROTA-SYNTH is a desktop analogue 8-step sequencer, coupled with a monophonic analogue synthesizer. It is very useful because of it´s intuitive handling. I like both instruments because of their unique and individual character. ENJOY!"

"Book Of Fixed Stars" - by ekkoarkitekt (aka Anders Mortensen).

"Music for spacewalks and empty cities at night! The new album consists of a series of electronic instrumentals, which are created on some of the analog synthesizers of yesterday. These form a collection of soundpictures, that exists on the border between music and installation art. Interweaved sonic textures, where the shaping, structure and composition of sounds, are forming musical sculptures and organic spaces of sound. All music composed, produced and mixed by Anders Mortensen / ekkoarkitekt Instruments used: Roland Jupiter 8, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, Yamaha CS-50, Minimoog Voyager and Eurorack Modular Synthesizer. Anders Mortensen is educated as a pianist and composer from the Conservatory Of Rythmic Music in Copenhagen, where he has studied with a.o. Django Bates and John Taylor."

Access Virus Indigo For Sale

This item is SOLD.
"Price is $900.00 including shipping within the continental U.S., please email pasoconotaku at hotmail dot com for questions or to purchase. International customers please inquire for shipping rates.

This is essentially the Access Virus KB but in a convenient 37 key format.

In the last six months I have replaced the internal battery, replaced several of the pots that were not secure, and also completely disassembled the key assembly and cleaned the keys themselves as well as the key contacts. It is in good shape for its age, it has some scratches but the frame is aluminum...everything is sturdy and nothing ugly about it however please review the photos provided to be sure the physical condition meets your expectations.

Here are the only issues of this keyboard that I am aware of. None of these problems have affected my experience with the keyboard but I do not wish for the buyer to have any surprises when they receive the item:There are some scratches/marks on the frame, nothing out of the ordinary for a keyboard of this age.There are a couple of minor quirks of the Access Virus B's (this includes the Access Virus Indigo for sale) design which I want to clarify, if you have any questions about these please ask: The headphone jack is slightly noisy. This is best described as just a subtle consistent hiss/white noise type sound, the main outputs function without this noise, it is exclusive to the headphone output.The rocker switch for power must be engaged firmly or it will not power on the keyboard.

What you get:

1. A securely packed Access Virus Indigo keyboard (this is not my first synth sale!).

2. The appropriate power cord.

PLEASE READ TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE:
