A new Animoog sound pack by Alba Ecstasy: AEONS.

“I have to admit that Animoog is becoming one of my favorite iSynths (besides WaveGenerator): you can obtain deep, warm, analog sounds, with a complex structure.
This video may be unsynchronized with audio on same parts.
Thank you for watching!”
Demo of a stepsequencer programmed with PureData and controlled by a Novation Launchpad.
First stage was a proof-of-concept with one track. Patch will be available soon at
and used in my part at Restlichtverstärker concerts
The VFX Key Mapper works in conjunction with the Patcher modular insert plugin.
We certainly agree with Kip Kubin on this one:
I’ll admit some some envy of those at NAMM making amazing drones and sequences on the Buchla Music Easel. so I decided to do my best with the Arp2600 and my Make Noise Rene. I’ll also admit the the Rene is so good at what it does I barely touched it and out came some of the best music I’ve heard from my Arp.
Demos of a few of the Generalmusic S2R built-in Performance patches.
Italian company Generalmusic (also called GEM) was known for producing home organs and semi-professional accompaniment keyboards. But they also made a few attempts at producing professional music workstations. The first of them was the S-Series, introduced in 1992. GEM called it the “Music Processor” because of its many advanced functions, including a powerful sequencer, the ability to read and edit samples, excellent real-time controllers, and many others.
In 1993, GEM upgraded the S-Series with the so-called “Turbo kit” which allowed for many new functions and doubled the polyphony. The Turbo kit was also sold separately as an upgrade for the original models. GEM also released a rack version, called the S2R, with the Turbo upgrade already installed.
There were two original models, with only one difference between them: S2 and S3. The S2 has a 61-note keyboard and the S3 has a 76-note keyboard. Both keyboard models have excellent semi-weighted keys with touch/release velocity, polyphonic aftertouch and metal contacts. On the front panel, there are also seven programmable sliders, seven programmable buttons and Pitch and Modulation wheels. All functions are logically and clearly displayed on a large graphical LCD with light blue neon back-lighting. Thanks to the excellent hardware and also thanks to two MIDI I/O’s, the S2/S3 is an ideal master keyboard for the home studio.
A very quick demo of one of the patches contained within UVI’s CS-M instrument, part of their Vintage Legends package
My Colorado based electro friend Mark Mosher explores Absynth 5, details below:
“Inside the Grid on Altair IV” is a soundscape created with one patch from scratch using the virtual synthesizer Absynth 5. It is performed be pressing and holding a single note for the entirety of the song. While I have used Absynth as the sole instrument for songs in the past (Tracks 3 & 4 on my last album markmosher.bandcamp.com/album/no-ghosts-just-fear), I’ve never created a patch where one held note triggers the entire composition. Recent works by Absynth creator Brian Clevinger and artist Anthony Distefano have inspired me to do start working on some pieces of this nature and this is my first of many to come.
The audio is CD quality, and the video shows a behind-the-scenes look at Absynth’s wonderful 68-stage modulatable envelopes in action. So all the movement and changes in dynamics, pitch, timber are meticulously drawn and programmed as part of the patch. The envelopes also support LFOs on segments. The envelopes can be extremely long and also loop independently which making Absynth fantastic for evolving soundscapes.
Note, I am also using an envelope to change the “effect time” of the Pipe Effect which is a unique audio effect within Absynth. P. 88 of the manual describes it best “Let’s take the image of a string. A loudspeaker (a contact loudspeaker) is connected to a string, which begins to vibrate as a result. You can determine the position of this virtual loudspeaker on the string via the parameter Input Position. Above the string are two pickups, similar to an E-Guitar. The pickups’ positions can be determined through the parameter Output Positions. Changing those two parameters can be compared with changing two microphones. You can modulate the string’s length and the pickups’ position through the LFOs or a MIDI Controller. This way, various flanging, pitch-shifting and rotary speaker effects can be achieved. These effects are particularly apparent when the modulation of the pickups are modulated in op¬posite directions.”
Synthesizer Demo of the polyphonic analog synthesizer Korg Poly-800 MK II.
The Korg Poly-800 II (not to be confused with the original Poly-800) is an interesting polyphonic analog synthesizer with built in digital delay. The basic sound of the Poly-800 MK 2 is different to the original Poly-800 MK 1. The filter sounds different and it has faster envelopes. It is a small, powerful synth.
In this movie no external effects or eq were used.
THE SOUND PROGRAMS IN THIS MOVIE:
Do you have a Korg Poly-800 II and want to get hold of those fantastic sounds heard in the video?
The “ANALOGAUDIO1 POLY-800 II PATCH BANK” costs 12,99 Euros and includes 64 great patches – warm analog pads, interesting retro sounds, fat basses, sequencer sounds and funky leads (in one word: all you hear in the video and some more).
As an experienced synth player, programmer and composer I programmed these patches at a professional level for studio use. This patchbank gets the most out of your Korg Poly-800 II. Also included is a patch list (PDF), to find the right sounds quickly. The sounds are not available anywhere else.
Please note, this patchbank will only work with a POLY-800 MK II – it will not work with the original POLY-800 or the EX-800.
After payment through PayPal you will get a sound file for the tape interface of your Poly-800 II and a patchlist via email.

This is a patch made on the Magellan synthesizer for iPad.
Download the patch here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B7bHi7ZXec4GM1JEVDUwZXF2c0k
“No external effects were used – it was a single patch recorded inside Magellan and then just exported from iTunes. So far I’m really impressed with what this synth is capable of!!
Producer Francis Preve has put together a new free library of synth patches for Ableton Live, featuring the sound of the Roland SH-101 synthesizer.
Here’s what Preve has to say about these Simpler instruments:
- SH101 Saw – Basic single oscillator SH-101 sawtooth.
- SH101 Square – Basic single oscillator SH-101 square wave.
- SH101 PWM – One of the truly classic SH-101 sounds lies in the character of its pulse width modulation.
- SH101 Saw+Sub – Another signature sound from the 101 comes from its sub-oscillator. Here, I blended it with a sawtooth waveform.
- SH101 ResSweep – The SH-101 shipped around the same time as the legendary TB-303 – and many producers have used the 101 in similar ways. The resonance on this synth is exceptional, so here’s a taste.
- SH101 Resonant – This is another example of the SH-101′s resonance, generating a whistling tone over a square/pulse wave.
- SH101 Noise – Lots of 80s tracks used the SH101′s midrange-heavy noise generator for synth drums, so I included a sample of it here.
- SH101 Bass – Gotta have some bass too, right?
