Quilcom Mystery 0 (0)

The Quilcom Mystery synthesiser was designed to explore a specific type of technique whereby an additive synth (with sub) can have the amplitude of each partial modulated by its own independent polyphonic LFO. Many settings can be randomised manually or via a trigger generator, and there are two identical sound generators for nice stereo effects and a fuller sound.

The technique seems to be most useful for pad and soundscape making, so that’s what the presets focus on.

Try it on headphones, and I hope you like it!

Shruti Box Vsti VSTI 32/64BIT WINDOWS ADDICTIVE SYNTHESIS / DRONE by oceanswift 0 (0)

Shruti Box VSTi is a small Additive synthesis drone box, a digital rendition of the classic Indian instrument.

A very light drone based instrument for quick sonic backgrounds – inspired on the Indian instrument “Shruti Box” – Our version comes with a Tremolo Effect, a Chorus Effect and other controls for Core sound such has “Body” “Damp” and “Shimmer”

A Constant Background Tone

Shruti box VSTi inst a standard fully equipped synth, nor its meant to be! This is something different and much more simple, our VSTi follows the same concept has the original instrument – producing constant Background Drones to be accompanied with other instruments or singing, or whatever comes your mind!

“A shruti box (sruti box or surpeti) is an instrument that traditionally works on a system of bellows. It is similar to a harmonium and is used to provide a drone in a practice session or concert of Indian classical music. It is used as an accompaniment to other instruments and notably the flute. The shruti box is also used in classical singing. In classical singing the shruti box is used to help tune the voice. The use of the shruti box has widened with the cross-cultural influences of world music and new-age music to provide a drone for many other instruments as well as vocalists.” wikipedia

Controls:

Octave:​ Sets the base octave for the note switches with a range of -2 to +2, with a setting of 0 representing the base canonical shruti sound.

Volume:​ Controls the overall loudness of the device.

Body:​ Controls the first harmonic of the drone sound. Set between 70-85% for the typical Indian shruti sound.

Shimmer:​ Adds brightness to the sound with an additional upper harmonic. Turn up for more ofa buzzing sound.

Damp:​ Low pass damping filter. Useful in tandem with the shimmer knob in order to hit sweettonal spots.

Note Switches:​ These turn on and off each available note across one full octave on a C scalewith an additional upper C note. Hold between two and four notes for the typical shruti dronesound.

Drone:​ When turned off the device will respond to MIDI and play when you sustain any MIDInote. When turned on the device will play at all times.

Effects:

Tremolo:​ A tremolo effect with selectable sine and triangle shapes and the ability to sync to thehost DAW tempo.

Stereo Chorus:​ A stereo chorus effect with controls for depth, rate, feedback, phase, and wetamount. The chorus can be turned on and off.ncert of Indian classical music.

KUJASHI Soundbank for the SYSTEM ONE D_mv by Kevin Brown 5 (1)

Soundbank (128 Patches) +Drumsound-Bank (31 Patches) für den SystemONE-D_mv  (Buchla 200 series-Emulation) von Kevin Brown

Wer weiß, wie ein Buchla eigentlich klingt? Einfach mal in die Werke von Suzanne Ciani oder Kaitlyn-Aurelia Smith oder auch Alessandro Cortini (Orchesterwerke) reinhören.

Der SystemOneD ist nach Entwicklerangaben (K. Brown) eine Emulation von früheren Buchla-200 series Modulen und ich habe versucht, in diese Modulserie einzutauchen und Klänge “herauszuschälen”.

Herausgekommen ist ein Sammelsurium von “Strange Noises”, Drone-Klängen, Bässen, majestätischen FM-Gebilden, Modularsweeps, Modular-Vocal/FOrmant-Stimmen, Glocken und Keyboardsounds, Buchla typischen Percussionsounds, verrückten Effektklängen und Sequencersounds (der SystemOneD-mv) hat allerdings keinen integrierten Sequencer (daher extern in den Klangbeispielen) sowie Klängen, wie sie wohl nur ein Modularsystem hervorbringen kann.

Außerdem habe ich noch eine kleine Drum/Percussionsoundbank mit 30 Klängen dazuprogrammiert.

A soundbank with 128 patches and a Drumsoundbank with 31 patches for the SYSTEM ONE D_mv by Kevin Brown

SystemOne D_mv is a emulation of the earlier BucHLA 200 Series:

Do U know how a Buchla sounds? Please, listen to the works of Suzanne Cziani or Kaithleen-Aurelia Smith for example.

This synth is a emulation with some modules of the 200e Series of Buchla and I´ve tried to get into the secrets.

I´ve made a whole bunch of sounds – from strange noises to strong Drones, Basses and majestic patches of FM-synthesis, Modularsweeps, Modular Vox, Bells and analog Keys, Buchla typical Percussion, Crazy SFX and Sequencerfood (this synth has no internal Sequencer) and sounds that only a modular synth can generate.
There´s a little bank with Drum & Percussionsounds for any needs, too.

Einfach mal das Sounddemo durchhören, welches zeigt, was man mit den Klängen der Bank (inkl. Drumbank) so anstellen kann. Eingespielt nur mit Klängen aus der Bank (inkl. Drums/Perc) und ohne externe Effekte.

Pleaste, listen to the sounddemo – this shows the usage of the soundbank. Played only with sounds from this banks and without the use of external effects.

Jim’s Gems 2: The Freedbacker 0 (0)

So here’s the second of my gems. The freedbacker. For all intents and purposes this is a somewhat failed experiment – in 2014 I worked in a really wonderful studio – it had all the great gear – Neve Console, Studer Tape Machine, and wonderful mics from the golden era of Neumann, AKG etc so I set about experimenting and recording some instruments. As a lover of all things doom metal, drone and noise – I wanted to try and create a chromatic feedback instrument – which I did – It was rubbish, it didn’t sound very good AT ALL.

And so it lived on a hard drive in the sound purgatory section never to be used!

Until years later, I found that one of those feedback loops stretched sounded amazing, something about the tension in the movement of the feedback tuning that I loved.

Sometimes a simple one shot sample stretched is perfect.

This is that instrument.

Since then I’ve used it loads underpinning or creating tension in productions or simply as a drone instrument. A recent production I used it in was Diego Philips’ 2020 track ‘The Sun’ – The Freedbacker runs the length of the track, with added tape loops and guitar swells over the top.

The amp used was a Lazy J combo, the guitar a Silvertone – mic-ed with a Sennheiser md441 in to a Neve 8058 console.

24bit 44.1khz

With delay and reverb on/off switches.

Kontakt Preset Instruments:

Freedbacker

Delay – simple delay

Frippertronics – A long tape like delay

Keep on Truckin’ – reverb taken in the same truck as our TRUCK DRUMS instrument

Long Robert – A stereo reverby version of frippertronics or tapey delay – think the classic ‘No Pussyfooting’ sort of sound. A personal favourite.

Reverse

Spongy – I was thinking a kind of Bebe & Louie Barron/Raymond Scott kind of thing

The Peter Criss Jazz – An ode to one of my favourite albums – American Don by Don Caballero & the chopped guitar textures on track 2: ‘The Peter Criss Jazz’. Nothing to do with Kiss, although they’re great as well. This almost sounds calliope like.

The Peter Criss Truck – The Peter Criss Jazz but in a truck

Truck Delay – Delayed feedback with our Truck IR

Truck Verb – Slightly altered Truck Reverb
