EML Polybox Quick Test w/ Analogue Solutions Telemark

December 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a quick test of the EML Polybox:

The GATE IN is accepting signal from the Analogue Solutions Oberkorn for purposes of rhythm.

In only a few minutes it has already become obvious that this little box is capable of much more than standard basic polyphony…

Analogue Solutions Christmas: Polymath Night (featuring Christine Anderson)

December 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ANALOGUE SOLUTIONS!

Here’s some holiday synthpop action featuring the Analogue Solutions’ Polymath modular synthesizer (all synth sounds heard in the video) as well as the wildly talented and unforgettable Christine Anderson on vocals!

The track was assembled layer by layer using ONLY the Polymath as the sound source. Each track was recorded separately into Logic Pro. From the percussive analogue sequencer loops to the quirky retro leads: each sound was created specifically for use in the “Polymath Night” song and video.

The reverb heard on the instrumentation is from Polymath’s own Spring Reverb. However, some slight delay was added on a couple of tracks for effect.

Christine Anderson offers her one of a kind sound and unique abilities as a vocalist, lyricist and overall creative contributor. Her “magic” touch can be seen and felt throughout the production and her fun-loving spirit brings an overflow of charm and fun to this project! Christine is also a star on the piano and an analogue enthusiast!

The musical bed uses all original Polymath sounds and was produced especially for the holidays by Sound of Science.

Elektron Analog Four with Octatrak & Roland TR 606 Drum

November 5, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The 606 has been modded by Analogue Solutions.
Much punchier than my old one :-)

roland-tr-606

The 606 was the percussion side-kick to the TB-303. It even looks like the 303. It stores up to 32 patterns and 8 songs. The 606 allows switching between Pattern Play and Write mode while running – making the 606 the only drumcomputer in the X0X series that can be edited while performing and switching patterns. It is also possible to link up to 4 consecutive patterns in Pattern Play mode. There is only a mono audio output, however there are mods from Kenton Electronics and Analog Solutions that will add individual outputs for each drum tone.

The 606 has seven analog drum sounds which are simple, yet great! Kick, Snare, 2 toms, open hat, closed hat, cymbal, accent. The hi-hats are a very tinny electronic sound and its toms are great for soft tribal patterns.

 

Analogue Solutions Polymath Paraphonic Modular Synthesiser

More live Polymath!

Here’s a little paraphonic action (chords) while Polymath’s onboard sequencer steps a steady rhythm. Nothing is processed and MIDI is NOT used in this example. The chords were played live, hence the slight off-beat nature of the performance.

After the first bit, you’ll hear ENV1 being switched to ENV2 (manually).

Interfacing Roland SH-101 with Analogue Solutions Europa Sequencer

October 6, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

One of my subscribers needed help interfacing his SH-101 with the Europa sequencer. In this video, I demonstrate clocking the SH-101′s arpeggiator and internal sequencer to the Europa using one of its 7 drum triggers. In this instance, I used trigger “B” since it did not have a drum assigned to the MIDI note number on the Roland R-8M. First, I program a steady stream of eighth notes and then sixteenth notes. I also experiment with dropping various steps to create a pattern. The simple bass line used in this video is from a Novation BassStation rack synth. I added some delay to the 101 with the Lexicon MX400.

Next, I hook up a Roland MPU-101 MIDI to CV converter box to control the SH-101 from the Europa sequencer.

Synth pop pioneer Phil Oakey (Human League) goes Telemark

September 12, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

British ‘boutique’ analogue synthesiser and accessory designer/manufacturer Analogue Solutions is proud to announce that bona fide synthpop pioneer Phil Oakey has added a Telemark V2 semi- modular analogue monosynth to the stunning synthesiser collection currently residing at The Human League’s legendary HL Studios in Sheffield…

Human League main man Phil Oakey needs little in the way of introduction. Having co-penned some of pop’s finest musical moments with memorable hits spanning several decades — notably 1981’s chart-topping perennial favourite ‘Don’t You Want Me’ (which sold well over a million copies in the UK alone, making it the 25th biggest-selling single of all time there, then shifted another million copies to secure the coveted US number one spot during the following year), he helped forge a popular music landscape-changing template for pre- programmed, synth-driven song structures that are still reverberating around the world today.

Back in the day, The Human League ‘Mk I’ co-founder Ian Craig Marsh wasn’t adverse to rhythmically riding a mid-Seventies-vintage Roland System 100 semi-modular analogue synthesiser’s resonance and filter faders to create a track’s Model 104 Sequencer-driven bass and snare drum on the fly! No need to do that today, of course, for HL Studios is packed floor to ceiling with old and new synths to die for. Indeed, it’s fair to say that what Phil Oakey doesn’t know about synths simply isn’t worth knowing!

Now something of a connoisseur, Oakey owns a considerable collection of synths, sequencers, and drum machines at HL Studios, many of which are analogue. Which is exactly why he has taken delivery of an Analogue Solutions Telemark V2, a dual-VCO, rack-mountable, semi-modular analogue monosynth with multimode VCF featuring lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and notch filter types, which will be perfectly at home there since the healthy socket selection dominating the right-hand side of its spacious control panel means it can comfortably be patched to work with other modular systems and analogue sequencers for added flexibility. Features like those, combined with a generous helping of modulation routing options, provide the Telemark V2 with an extraordinarily diverse range of sound possibilities, including leads, basses, effects, and percussion, as well as being able to be used as an effects processor thanks to its audio inputs (feeding audio signals directly into its mixer).

Another distinguishing feature of the Telemark V2 is its 100% analogue voice and modulation circuitry formed from discrete components. Nothing travels through digital circuitry here, so turning a knob directly affects the associated analogue circuitry to produce a characteristic sound straight from the Seventies/early-Eighties — albeit reliant on today’s reliable technology!

Improvements to Telemark V2 over and above the original version of the instrument include adding an octave divider (SUB-VCO/DIVIDER) — for creating a fuller, fatter sound or for use as a clock divider designed to be a source of lower frequencies (particularly suited to rhythmical usage) — and a ring modulator (RING MOD), typically used for fashioning metallic-type sounds (although it has other uses).

Little wonder, then, that the original Telemark and now its V2 successor are so sought after by those in the know. Chances are the characteristic sounds of Phil Oakey’s new and improved Telemark V2 — in limited-edition black, no less! — could well be being heard on some more memorable musical moments from The Human League in the not too distant future. We wish them well.

Telemark V2 is available to order online directly from Analogue Solutions (http://www.analoguesolutions.org.uk/concussor/telemark.htm) for £749.00 GBP (excluding VAT and delivery) or through one of their dealers. Alternatively, the keyboard- equipped Telemark-k V2 is available for £1,099.00 GBP (excluding VAT and delivery).
