New External Processing Demo of Korg X911 - Freaknoise!

Just put up a video of me showing how the vintage korg X911 "Guitar Synthesizer" can be used as a creative external processor. No guitars involved but I do use a TR606 to play bass lines and 8bitish glitchy stuff https://youtu.be/ezeRfS6dEV0 It's not 100% accurate with the words (I realized afterwar...

Re: New ModcanA Mixer - woo hoo

YES!!! MegaOhm has built me some AMAZING ModcanA pieces including transplanting a Doepfer Reverb to ModcanA and building a dual MS20 filter from scratch and some uber cool CGS and other pieces. I HIGHLY recommend all his products and custom work. http://www.megaohmaudio.com/ As an aside many years a...

Re: New ModcanA Mixer - woo hoo

I've seen those. I have the GC and the tetra looks like something fun but I personally would never really use. Those ARE good prices though. Someone should snap them up! As an aside I really do miss the good days of Cyndustries. Granted some of the modules were copies of others in mdocan A format bu...

Re: Analogue Solutions Power on Doepfer

In case anyone is interested after trying again I'm chalking this up to two things: 1. The A Solutions modules I have need +5 on the rail. (they worked with the single cable on one rail with +5 but not the other without) 2. The multi-connector cable is now shite. The plastic connector crumbled off i...

Analogue Solutions Power on Doepfer

With some more time at home I have decided to dust off my Euro system I haven't touched in 10+ years. Most of it is Doepfer with a few Analogue Solutions modules (Master Clock, Dual VCO, SYnth VCF/EG/VCA.) I also have one Analogue Systems module and a separate mini A Systems PS that runs that. I put...

Re: New ModcanA Mixer - woo hoo

I ordered it from Front Panel Express. They're a bit pricey and also expensive to ship one unit but pack REALLY well and do a great job. Given the prices ModcanA items are it's not a bad deal when you roll your own to pay a bit to get things looking nice :party:

New ModcanA Mixer - woo hoo

Since ModcanA has been effectively abandoned by manufacturers as a format and since I have some new Sixpaks that (obviously) require filling I started to use my free time doing some DIY.

The ER1 is still the wolf’s balls. Nothing I’ve used sounds quite like it or is the same way to use. So simple, yet so powerful. I love that they didn’t put another lame resonant filter in and instead went with a crazy LFO modulation section. It can do all sorts of freakish circuit bent sounds, basi...

Since this is in a synth noise category I’ll mention I’ve used my voyager RME to great effect live for dark ambient and noise.

Slightly modulating vco2 and the filter. Decay setting and speed/amount of vco3 (as LFO) is very im...

Re: Anybody here prefer semi-modular to modular?

They’re different beasts to me. A semi modular is like a flexible monosynth. The MS20 is just brilliant as is. Patch it up a bit and you get more (especially with the external in and mod routings). I turn to an Arp Ody often as well as a Moog Rack mount voyager but have used a patched Ody and 2600 a...

Not sure if this goes here but if it helps I picked up this beast as a more portable base system to augment my ModcanA.
