Patchblocks Modular Synth

July 16, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

All you need is a Patchblock, a Mac or Windows PC and our free software. The software allows you to program your module the way you want. This is done in a so called “visual programming language”, or in other words, you don’t have to go into 100% geek mode and write code to make it happen. Visual programming is easy. You choose from a variety of low level sound processing elements and combine their functions by connecting them with virtual cables – a bit like a modular synthesiser, but in software. Your repertoire of virtual modules include various oscillators, filters, delays, and even modules for algorithmic composition.

Our editor lets you emulate how your “patch” would sound, and once you’re happy with it you can upload it to your Patchblock. This is done by simply connecting it per USB. Once programmed, you can unplug it and jam away. Patchblocks are small and battery powered, so you can put them in your pocket and rock with them wherever you want.

Available at http://patchblocks.com

All sounds produced by 4 Patchblocks with the following patches:

Richard Devine: Closing track from my modular set at the Tokyo Modular Festival 2014, visuals by BR-laser

June 26, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Last track of my live modular set at Tokyo Modular Festival 2014. Mesmerizing laser visuals by BR-Laser. The module used is a creation from BR laser, and makes a laser projector work in the fashion of an analog oscilloscope in X/Y mode. The signal flow from the interface module to the laser is fully analogue, because of this the visuals are extremely responsive, and the module can connect to RGB laser projectors.

Amazing visuals by artist Bernhard Rasinger of BR-Laser links below:

Modular Monday morning

June 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This video captures a live studio performance on Synthesizers.com modular by Manuel Schulz.

Background video description:

After a long time, I have a new Dotcom live video for you. Again, there is no multitracking; just live performance of the Dotcom Studio 110. I have used a Boss DR-55 for the rhythm and an Electro Harmonix Small Stone phaser for the pad. The Lexicon PCM 96 does the reverb and the delay. That’s all. This time I recorded the music directly to disc without any microphone – so the sound quality should be much better now. If you wish, I can post another video with some explanations about the patch and how all this works. Just let me know.
