d16 Group LuSH-101 – Lead and Pad Sounds

March 18, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The saga continues as Prof. Don discusses more sound programming on the LuSH-101 by d16 Group Audio Software. Various lead tones and a thick super-sawtooth pad are demonstrated.

About LuSH-101:

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. However, this basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly, almost effortlessly leveraging its maximum potential.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used are virtually limitless. Layered sounds can be created simply by assigning the layers to the same MIDI channel; the results can sound as massive as anything imaginable! Assigning the layers to different keyboard zones allows you to create even the most sophisticated splits. Of course, you can always assign the various layers to different MIDI channels for 8-part multitimbral usage. And, virtually any combination of splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH. With each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of only the finest insert effects, LuSH-101 can push your creativity to unprecedented levels!

Want to express yourself even more? In addition to a very sophisticated MIDI-learn implementation, an advanced modulation matrix is built into each layer. Even the Arpeggiator’s MIDI output can be used as a modulation source, unleashing your creativity to build complex sequences and progressions.

Stylo-101 – Stylophone+SH-101 arrives

November 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Details below:
I-phone 5 friendly! What do you get if you cross a Stylophone with the famous Roland SH-101? Well We have circuit-bent a virtual Stylophone and added Roland SH-101 modifications. You can create wacky and eerie sounds to meaty bass lines. As well as the Stylophone sound, you now have an extra oscillator driving a sawtooth wave with filter and resonance from the SH-101. You can adjust the mixer for each oscillator and the LFO can control oscillators and amp. We have increased the LFO speed and depth of the pitch modulation. We have also added an SH-101 style sequencer for creating bass lines or arpeggios. It is still monophonic but the notes will continue to decay if you release your finger before playing another key. You can also play over the top of the sequence while its playing.

  • 2 oscillator monophonic synth
  • oscillator 1: saw, tri, square
  • oscillator 2: SH-101 Saw with SH-101 filter, SH-101 resonance (4 preset levels) and detune

Introducing the powerful LuSH-101 multilayer synthesizer

October 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

D16 Group has announced the availability of LuSH-101 (formerly known as SHIOITOR), the long awaited authentic sounding virtual synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. This basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used are virtually limitless. Any combination of keyboard splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH-101. Each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of eight insert effects.

LuSH-101 comes complete with a powerful built in mixer, complete with layer-independent parametric equalizers, compressors and three send effects: reverb, delay and chorus.

Innovative oscillator algorithms developed by D16 Group make LuSH-101 sound exactly like a sampled hardware analog synth. Filters with constant resonance across the entire frequency domain has natural warmth and character.

A generous factory library contains more than 1600 presets of every type, while intuitively designed preset browser keeps everything organized and easy to locate.

LuSH-101 for Windows and Mac (32 & 64bit VST/AU) is available to purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£119 GBP incl. taxes (if applicable). LuSH-101 is now also included in the Total Bundle. Discounts are available to registered product owners from their User Area at the D16 Group website.

Free SH-101 patches for Ableton Live

October 8, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · 1 Comment 

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?

Time machine: Exploring the classic Roland SH-101

September 10, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A voyage into the heart of the Roland SH-101 from the year 1983. Exploration by Marko Ettlich monophonic analog synthesis 1 VCO I Saw, Square, PWM, Noise Filter – 24dB lowpass step sequencer, arpeggiator It has been used by The Prodigy, 808 State, Apollo 440, Devo, Aphex Twin, Astral Projection, Nitzer Ebb, Chemical Brothers, Boards of Canada and many more.

The SH-101 is very cool, especially for techno, drum&bass and ACID! It’s a monophonic bass synthesizer. Its sound lies somewhere between the TB-303 and a Juno bass sound. It has a lot of simple but cool features. You can control the VCF, pitch, LFO or all from the pitch bender. It has a white noise generator, arpeggiator with up, down and up/down patterns and a simple real-time sequencer. The LFO offers random, sine, square or noise waveforms. And normal or auto portamento effects give you that elastic bass sound. There are external clock inputs for the sequencer and arpeggiator, CV/GATE inputs and outputs and a CV hold pedal.

Unfortunately there is no patch memory storage and although it has no MIDI there are upgrades available for it from many analog service companies that will allow you to incorporate it into any MIDI studio environment. It can also be controlled by MIDI using a CV/MIDI converter. It’s great for bass sounds or bubbly analog effects. They come in three different flavors – gray, blue or red (there was a VERY rare white version too)! It can also be strapped on like a guitar for live performance using the optional Hand Grip.

Synth artist Solvent meets the Make Noise Phonogene

August 8, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s what Solvent has to say about the video:

Hi my name is Solvent and I make electronic music. Here is a rather indulgent video of my first experiment with the Make Noise Phonogene module. Actually, indulgent as this may be, I liked this enough to press record. I used a square wave LFO to chop the splices evenly, and the SH-101 krbrd is choosing the splices via the “Organize” Cv-in. End-of-splice (“EOS”) triggers a TipTipAudio BD808 kick drum, running through the Doepfer A-189-1 Bit Modifier. Phonogene loop is processed through a Pittsburgh Modular Filter + Midiverb reverb. The source of the sample was some lame YouTube film trailer about space.

Pure Analog with the Oberheim OBXa + Roland SH-101

June 17, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background details:

I made this track in the mid 80′s with the Oberheim OBXa on a 4-track analog tape recorder Tascam 144.
Everything was played by hand, without a sequencer or MIDI.
The remastering is made with SONAR 8.0
This piece was also featured on our national radio called BRT-2 in 1987 in a special program “maneuvers in het donker” for home made electronic synthesizer music
