More cool retro C64 type synths coming your way – introducing Raider

June 9, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Raider is a 2 oscillator modulation sequencer based synthesizer. Raider allows you to modulate pitch and filter cutoff via two step sequencers. Each sequencer allows one to simply draw in their own pitch and filter modulations or use one of the pre-configured templates. Both sequencers are tempo synced and the filter sequencer can be switched on or off. Raider makes sounds suitable for techno, electro, house, breakbeat, glitch and many other styles. Sounds are remanecent of the 303 and 8-bit game sounds of the 1980’s and one can produce a wide range of sounds from FX and screaming acid leads to Arps and house grooves to percussion and a whole lot more.

Features:

  • 2 oscillators (sine, saw, square, triangle)
  • 1 step sequencer pitch control
  • 1 step sequencer filter control
  • 1 ADSR Amp envelope
  • 1 State Variable Filter (Lowpass,Highpass,Bandpass)
  • 32 presets

C64 treat: Arkanoid Commodore 64 remix

June 2, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Arkanoid Commodore 64 remix features the Roland MC505 which has a massive collection of professional and coveted electronic synth and drum sounds, effects, built-in real-time VCF and envelope knobs for tweaking, a sequencer/arranger, and many other great additions. This is the successor to the MC-303 and is now much more advanced. Its sounds will be familiar to any techno-head.

The LFO and resonant filters allow quick and easy sound manipulation. The new D-Beam allows you to randomly tweak your sounds by passing your hand over an infrared beam! It has a great sequencer for building your songs (with groove quantizing and part level faders for mixing) as well as many idea catchers like the phrase sampler and arpeggiator.

This is an all-in-one music machine that’s great for DJ’s or anybody else who wants to create slamming dance tracks. Designed as a stand alone machine, they do not work quite as well when incorporated into a multi-synth keyboard rig. It’s perfect for beginners and advanced users, but offers the most possibility to those who will use it exclusively.

Octatrack vs. SammichSid

March 23, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The iridescent SammichSid. Inside there’s 2 6580 SID chips from Commodore 64s. Depending on the angle of the light, the SammichSid’s color is purple, blue or gold. Mix those colors and sounds well with an Elektron Octatrack and you get a blend of old and new.

C64 with MSSIAH Cartridge

March 17, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

I modded this Commodore C64 by putting a MSSIAH Cartridge, 6 pots and 2 switches in it.
4 pots are for the MSSIAH Software, 1 for Volume and 1 for a Feedback Loop I built in it.
Maybe in the future I will give this thing a nice painting or a new housing and of course pot knobs :)

Rhythm Core Alpha: Lo-fi Johnny

March 8, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

100% Rhythm Core Alpha. This time I used the lo-fi sounds (mainly Square, Saw and C64 samples) and tried to assemble retro tunes whith many tones and some arpeggio sounds, which personally remind me of my Game Boy childhood. Are you a Lo-Fi Johnny, too?

Amazing: You can play all your patterns (blocks) in realtime and even change the key/mode of your created tunes automatically. LIVE !!!

Thank you very much again for this awesome DSiWare release and keep up the good work, SoftEgg!!!
