My new EBM bass favourite VST :-D

February 29, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on My new EBM bass favourite VST :-D 

Also used by Nitzer Ebb this VST really does the job


EGOkILLER uses a double-dose Phase Distortion Oscillator in place of the standard oscillator/filter set-up. It is a very powerful form of synthesis first seen in Casio’s CZ synths in the ’80’s. The PD Oscillators have a very full sound that gives this synth great character. It is designed for EBM/Industrial music but is versatile enough to be used anywhere.

EGOkILLERversion2 is the first of the Version 2 synths. Like the original it is based on a single Phase Distortion Oscillator. The new version features a dual High Pass – Low Pass filter set-up with resonance, as well as graphical envelopes for both modulation and VCA. The LFO is new and extra flexibility has been added to modulation routings. It also includes really fat Unison and an enhanced overdrive.

And make sure to look out for the new one, scheduled to be released soon :-)

GODkILLERversion2 is a versatile V/A synth, laid out in a similar manner to EGOkILLERv2. It improves on the original with two oscillators with sync and Hard Sync. The mixable Low-pass and Band Reject Filters are carried over from the original. It also has two graphical ADSR envelopes and a comprehensive LFO featuring 16 different waveforms. Overdrive and LFO destinations can be controlled by a Modulation Wheel on a MIDI keyboard controller.

More on Kitaro


Back in Japan Kitaro started his solo career in 1977. The first two albums Ten Kai and From the Full Moon Story became cult favorites of fans of the nascent New Age movement. He performed his first symphonic concert at the ‘Small Hall’ of the Kosei Nenkin Kaikan in Shinjuku, Tokyo. During this concert Kitaro used a synthesizer to recreate the sounds of 40 different instruments, a world’s first. But it was his famous soundtrack for the NHK series “Silk Road” which brought him the international attention.

He struck a worldwide distribution arrangement with Geffen Records in 1986; in 1987 he collaborated with different musicians, e.g. with Micky Hart (Grateful Dead) and Jon Anderson (Yes). In 1988 his record sales soared to 10 million worldwide. He was nominated twice for a Grammy award and his soundtrack for the movie “Heaven & Earth” won the award for best original score. He won another grammy award for his album Thinking of You in 2001.

Introducing Serge Modular

February 28, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on Introducing Serge Modular 


Serge-flavored modular synthesis provides the musician/programmer with an absolutely blank canvas and a huge rainbow palette of colors as opposed to the limited hues of a hardwired synth or even many other modulars. A lot of people seem to use the Serge solely for ambient and experimental music but, can definately be used in the traditional manner as well.

The Serge, like most modulars, is monophonic unless you have enough panels/oscillators to build multiple voicings. The Serge system has only one “native” keyboard – the TKB which is a combination sequencer and capacitance touchplate controller. Maybe I’ll add one in the future but, for now, I’m using a simple MIDI controller keyboard connected to a Kenton Pro-Solo MIDI/CV converter giving me Pitch-CV, Gate and Trigger outs. There are many unusual modules (and many “usual” ones as well) in the Serge system that can create a myriad of effects. So many in fact that they are hard to cover in a simple introduction like this one.

Don´t miss out on Clark's new album Turning Dragon

February 27, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on Don´t miss out on Clark's new album Turning Dragon 


Clark has released a new album on Warp Records entitled Turning Dragon. I have looked forward to this album for some time after listened to his previous release, Throttle Promoter EP. Clark is definately one of the most refreshing artists on Warp, he has a very innovative but still classic UK electronic sound. Hard, deep, continuously evolving and gritty tracks, aimed at contorting your body on the dance floor or just contorting your brain. This is an album that you could almost call techno, but techno with the a.d.d. detail pushed as far as it can go.

xoxos – Virtual Machine

February 26, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on xoxos – Virtual Machine 

Virtual Machine is a commuted synthesis model for emulating engines and similar mechanical sounds. The architecture consists of three correlated signal generators and two resonators for modeling cabinet acoustics. A ‘Gearbox’ is used to modulate parameters as a group to add realism during ‘performance.


Listen to it here >>


Virtual Machine is designed for the emulation of motors and simple mechanical sounds.

The core of VM uses a pulse clock to generate a series of short impulses. This is used to model the main stroke of the engine. The top panel controls this impulse series. Sputter mixes a continuous noise source with the synced noise to create variation. Timing modulates the clock rate with a low frequency noise source. The mod parameter changes the rate of the modulator.

Impulses are shaped by an a d envelope and pass through a resonant low pass filter. The impulses trigger a mechanical noise generator used to model the sound of the mechanism’s moving parts. The mechanical noise is in turn used to amplify a continuous noise source with a peak follower. The continuous noise source can be amplified separately to add ambience.

All three signals are routed to a series of resonators to model cabinet acoustics. The mechanical noise circuit generates square pulses and operates at very low or high densities to create a variety of textures. Halt limits the rate it can be triggered at, creating catching or stalling effects when faster clockrates are used. This can be used to model dependent systems that function at lower frequencies, such as an exhaust pipe.

Two delay networks running in series are used to model cabinet resonances. They can be bypassed to model partial enclosures such as engine cowling. The largest size setting approximates cabinets over ten feet in length. The speed panel applies modulation to a group of parameters for accentuating changes in the clock rate. The gear switch selects between three different coefficients. The rate of modulation between settings is smoothed by the down and up trimmers to emulate mechanical resistance. The pitch bend and mod wheel are routed through this grouping.


BWO vs. Wei Wei

February 25, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on BWO vs. Wei Wei 


Due to my childrens fascination with the Swedish nominations to the Eurovision Song Contest I had to force myself to watch this Saturday’s even more horrifying nomination contest. Somewhere I had some hopes that at least BWO would deliver something worth listening to, but I am sorry to say that they were not up to par with what they have produced before.

BWO has delivered some pretty catchy euro-disco-synthpop songs in there career, but now they seem to have turned themselves over to the Bobby Ljunggren/Pling Forsman/G:son tribe and what do we get – a washed out Madonna/Abba-esque disco tune that will be forgotten the moment you turn your stereo off.


Instead, and although I am no fan of her music in general, I would all my credits to Wei Wei instead – man does this woman have a voice :-)

Listen to Wei Wei here >> 

She is currently one of the biggest chinese stars right now and guess what she lives in my hometown Malmoe, Sweden – good going – love to have her sing on one of my records.

Voxengo VariSaturator

February 23, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on Voxengo VariSaturator 


VariSaturator is an audio effect plug-in designed to apply saturation effects over audio material.  VariSaturator can be used both to boost the loudness of the audio tracks without increasing their peak levels proportionally, and to apply subtle harmonic coloration that makes tracks sound more pronounced and polished.

The VariSaturator module features a digital waveshaping saturator and feedback topology. Basically, it also serves to boost your signal and apply desired harmonics through digital means with the added bonus of confusing naming conventions.

VariSaturator [the plug-in as a whole] is beneficial in a variety of areas. It produces good results over drums, bass, and vocal tracks individually or sub-mixes and full mixes. However, use with caution or you’ll start to distort.

More features:

  • Two-band processing
  • Valve and digital saturation
  • Multi-channel processing
  • Internal channel routing
  • Channel grouping
  • Mid/side processing
  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages

Lemur from Jazz Mutants

February 21, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comments Off on Lemur from Jazz Mutants 

If you haven´t done so already make sure to check out the Lemur from Jazz Mutants. The Lemur is a top of the range control surface for audio and media applications, that breaks from the prior art on several grounds. Its major innovation consists in its brilliant modular graphic interface concept and its exclusive multitouch sensor technology. The continiously growing palette of configurable graphic objects enables you to design made-to-measure interfaces by using the free available JazzEditor. This endows the Lemur with the unique and protocol independant capacity to adapt its behavior according to the application you are controlling: sequencers, modular synthesizers, virtual instruments, VJ software, 3D animation tools and light control.


The Lemur’s pioneering concept relies on JazzMutant’s unique patented multitouch technology. While conventional mice, touchscreens and tablets are limited to single contact points, the Lemur’s multi-touch capacity makes it possible to use all of your ten fingertips to accurately control multiple user-interface objects at once. The Lemur appeals to you straight away by its amazing responsiveness.

I wonder if they will get in trouble with Apple on this !!

Even Daft Punk enjoyed this at their latest gig on Feb 10th:
