Volca Melodic House & Synthwave Jam

Volca Duo Slenterende Beer haven't been active in a few months. They just posted this jam from back in October and it instantly reminded me why I love these guys so much!

Video Description:

Live jam with 5 Volcas and a bunch of effects! Before you ask: yes, this jam is from last year - sorry for not sharing it sooner... we have a few more lined up, so we'll share them in the coming weeks. For clips / highlights of these jams, follow us on social media - links at the bottom of the description.

WARBL & TEC Breath Controller MPE on iPad

YouTuber Mike Homan shows us how he is able to get MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) with his TEC Breath Controller and a WARBL! I'm not sure how he is physically fitting both into his mouth at the same time, but I admire his determination.

Video Description:

Using a TEC Breath controller for subtle vibrato and the WARBL in bag mode to simulate to get all the MPE control in the Noise app on my ipad. Both controllers are used simultaneously and connected via usb but can also use a PUC+ for wireless MIDI via Bluetooth LE . Used Midi flow to filter the pitch bend and to join the two breath controller midi to one output. Noise app allows for MPE control

Hacking Arm Prosthesis to Output CV: Thought-Controlled Music

YouTuber Bertolt Meyer and his husband are building a SynLimb. This device attaches to his arm prosthesis, converting his thoughts into Control Voltage signals. These signals are usable on any synth with CV input!

Video Description:

Together with Chrisi from KOMA Elektronik and my husband Daniel, I am in the process of building a device (the "SynLimb") that attaches to my arm prosthesis instead of the prosthetic hand. The SynLimb converts the electrode signals that my prosthesis picks up from my residual limb into control voltages (CV) for controlling my modular synthesizer. The SynLimb thus allows me to plug my prosthesis directly into my snythesizer so that I can control its parameters with the signals from my body that normally control the hand. For me, this feels like controlling the synth with my thoughts. I show the prototype(s), explain how we put it together and how it works, and do a little demo.

Synthstrom Deluge with TouchOSC on an iPad

YouTuber Snowdeaf created a TouchOSC layout to get deep in Deluge's parameters from his iPad!

Video Description:

In this video I take a look at using TouchOSC by Hexler to control Deluge's parameters on an iPad.

I made a simple TouchOSC layout for Deluge. This is the first one I ever made so some of the design decisions are not necessarily optimal. The fader types are a lot easier to control on an iPad than the rotary ones.

The layout is made to control all the parameters of the Deluge substractive synth. This video shows only some of the controls. I will make another one for the modulation controls and FM synth parameters later. I hope.

TouchOSC makes it really easy to control all the MIDI parameters that can be mapped by the LEARN button on Deluge. The best way is to make one synth preset and LEARN all the mappings and then use that as a starting point when creating a new synth sound. Sound design on Deluge is a lot easier with the touch interface than trying to find all the parameters on the Deluge grid.

There are some restrictions, though. TouchOSC controls won't go below zero, so Deluge parameters that have negative values like modulation source depth or sidechain volume ducking cannot be controlled. Or at least I couldn't figure it out. Also the initial values of the touch controls do not correspond the values on the Deluge. So it works like some digital synths where you need to move the fader first for the parameter to "catch-up" with the control. That's not an issue once you figure it out.

The iPad is connected to the Deluge with the Lightning to USB 3 Camera adapter. Both the Deluge and the iPad are powered by the power bank. Deluge is connected to the power bank with a Birdcord USB to 9V converter cable.

[No computers were harmed making this video. The sounds were recorded directly to the SD card in Deluge and downloaded to the iPad using Downrush. The video was recorded on an iPhone XS and airdropped to the iPad where everything was put together by LumaFusion.]

Chris Landon - NDLR Jam #5

YouTuber Chris Landon is back with more NDLR sequencing on his gear and AudioKit Synth One!

Video Description:

I finally added my Digitakt into my NDLR setup for some percussion. Enjoy!
