Synthetic Sound Labs - NEW 5u Delay Module * VIDEO *

Post by ritchiedrums » Sat Sep 18, 2010 1:51 am

That's Right Kids!!!
Finally a Cool DOTcom format Digital Delay Module with CV :yay:

Doug Slocum has been working with Synths since the 1970s.
He has come out from the shadows & produced the first(of hopefully Many)
Synthetic Sound Labs modules.
I met with him today and have been working with this ALL NIGHT.

This prototype is a well made, PRETTY, 5u module(like .Com, STG, COTK, etc....) Knobs feel smooth & the jacks are TOP SHELF!! :guinness:
[video][/video]

SPECS & PRICE:
http://www.steamsynth.com/m_DigitalDelay.aspx

Here are 3 audio samples:

1) Basic bass line MIDI sequence via MOTM-650 (DOTcom VCO, filter, envelope & VCA + Mattson LFO & Envelope)
It starts dry. When the digital delay first comes in it almost has more of a a reverb vibe, not harsh. Then adding the LFO to the CV input takes us to a whole other Planet!! TRI LFO is used & I'm tweeking all the parameters throughout....) :sb:


2) SECOND - This is a counter-line to go with the bassline. (Same modules are used, but now with the HP out of the filter)

SQR LFO is used & the CV levels are higher creating more harsh effects. :nana:

3) This is the drum track (KICK=DOTcom VCO, Filter, Env+VCA - SNR= DOTcom VCO, ENV, Noise, VCA+MOTM-1485 GX-1 Diode Filter(the TOM is the same patch, but with the MOTM ladder VCF instead....CYM= MATTSON VCF) The Kick & TOM were recorded to seperate tracks & the delay module was used as reverb. The SNR & CYM were recorded to one track & the CV-Delay is applied only to that track......... I really like the character this module adds to these analog drums!!

Checked out the website - Looks like a company that fills the gap with the modules they have planned so far, parametric filter and steiner filter. Could get exciting! Wonder what price range the modules will be. Ordered a Modcan digital delay and the total was over $700.

Cotk is 366 Euros but it's only 1200 ms delay... if SSL stays low in price this delay could be a winner... sound is very interesting

Cool 8_)

What's the spec?

Max/Min delay time?
Self oscillate?
Does the CV control the delay time?

Sounds good.
Waiting for more spec but if the price is correct it would be mine, for sure.

Tasty! Which connector is that? It looks Dotcom, but I'd like to check.

Nice to see others excited about this module! :love:
I agree that the price is a main factor.
Hopefully Doug will be able to offer a significant discount on the first run.

Man I was hoping he was just going to call them "Doug Slocum Electronics" becase he has such a cool name.

Nice to see the delay is working.

Yes, was thinking the same thing.

The preliminary Web page morphs into discussing a parametric filter, though, no?

Oops. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll fix that up soon. It's what happens when you're busy designing synths and web sites all at the same time.
