u-he intros arpeggiator for the Diva synth

December 1, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

u-he has released a video of an alpha version of the upcoming arpeggiator for its Diva virtual analog synthesizer.

The oscillators, filters and envelopes closely model components found in some of the great monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. Modules can be mixed and matched so you can build hybrids, but what sets DIVA apart is the sheer authenticity of the analogue sound. This comes at the cost of quite a high CPU-hit, but we think it was worth it: Diva is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit simulators (e.g. PSpice) in realtime. The behaviour of zero-delay-feedback filters when pushed to the limit clearly demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach.

Luftrum 9 – Soundbank for DIVA

October 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Luftrum 9 is a soundbank for DIVA set to release in start November. The soundbank contains cinematic pads, gentle arpeggios and synth emulations inspired by Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Royksopp, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, William Orbit etc. but also a few soundscapes, sound effects and strings found their way to the soundbank. 2/3 of the soundbank are pads and arpeggios – so it’s pad arp haven. Since DIVA doesn’t contain an arpeggiator yet, all arpeggios in the YouTube audio demo were made with the Kirnu Arpeggiator – which is free to download.

Simple Trance with hardware (Juno-60)

September 10, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A quick tutorial on creating a simple Trance-type arpeggio sound with the Roland Juno-60.

Among the first in Roland’s amazing Juno family! Six analog voices of polyphony and patch memory storage!! The Juno-60 sounds great, however, like the Juno-6 it lacks MIDI control. The Juno-60 includes 56 patches of memory storage. The Juno-60 is still popular due in part to opinions that it sounds better (punchier) than the Juno-106. The Juno-6 and 60 are very rich sounding synthesizers and are great analog machines as long as you can withstand the absence of MIDI control. The JSQ-60 sequencer is an external sequencer controller for the Juno-60 and is usually worth acquiring.

Xplorer – an Oberheim Matrix-12 and Xpander editor – realtime demo

May 14, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Apart from the stupid synthetic voice in the beginning of this video, the demo is pretty cool :-)

In this demo, you will see that while playing an arpeggiator in FL studio, the parameters of the Xpander can be changed on the expander itself, with the keyboard controller, or directly on the touch screen. Whatever the input mode is, everything is synchronized.
Xplorer is more that an simple editor, it can acts as a real time controller too.
Enjoy the demo !
