Modded TR-909

via greg on the AH list:
"i did the colin fraser mods (all fantastic), plus:

extended ranges for most of the decay and pitch controls
snare pitch envelope alteration switch (removes pitch decay or increases depth)
snare noise filter frequency
snare vco2 pitch
tom pitch eg cut
tom vco2 pitch
tom noise level
rim shot pitch
clap pitch
clap number (of "claps")
clap speed
clap reverb level
hh swap switch (swaps open and closed samples)
crash and ride extended pitch switches
trigger mute switches for all sounds
noise shift register tune (adjusts the rate of the noise down to digital crunchiness)

most of these were pretty easy with the schematics, swapping resistors, etc.

i think all these mods are quite useful.

Beowulf - In the Hall of the Mountian King

YouTube via paulshillitomusic via the forum
"Just finished another classical electronica piece this time its "In the hall of the mountain king" by Greig but this time I edited clips from Beowulf (the CGI film) to the music.

Boosted my range of soft synths with CS-80V, Juptier 8V and Virtual String Machine all of which were used along with Omnisphere, a big favourite of mine and of course cubase 4.

Took about 2 weeks of evening and weekend work to do the arrangement and 2 hours to slot the video arround it, best seen in HD for Angelina Jolie alone Wink let alone the better quality audio.

Hope you enjoy

Paul"

YouTube video description:
"Beowulf set to "In the hall of the mountain king" by Edvard Grieg electronically recreated in an Isao Tomita style.

The music was created first then the clips of Beowulf were edited around the music, this I think works well because of the superb look and animation in the film together with the theme of the composition and sounds used.

Robert Zemeckis 2007 Beowulf is completely computer generated using the voices and the looks of the real actors including Ray Winstone, Angelina Jolie and Anthony Hopkins which quite suites the music I recreated, synthesised sounds for synthespians.

Music created using Jupiter 8V, CS-80V, Omnisphere, Virtual String Machine soft synths and arranged and mixed in Cubase 4."
Some Angelina Jolie for you...

PolyMiK breadboard synth

YouTube via MusicMiK. Remember you can search on MusicMiK on the top left for more.
"I started this project last weekend and i think this will be the synth with the shortest development time i ever made :)

Okay, in fact, much of the design was heavily inspired by the Korg Trident and the AAC Tiracon 6V, i just added sub oscillators, ring modulator, and some of the surrounding electronics. The firmware later will add a lot of power with several LFOs, multi-stage envelopes (thinking of 8 stages), microtuning and we'll see what more ideas i add into this.

I'll try to use an AVR to control this, but if it's not powerful enough, it will get an AT91SAM7S for this - like the one i use to control it currently.

The (nearly) complete 1-voice version of the synth is built on the breadboard, controlled serially by just 5 wires from the computer board, which of course will be on the main synth PCB also later.

Need to add the offset correction trimpots now, check if it's possible to do a fine calibration, then i think i will etch some voice boards to clean up the breadboard."

Circuit-bent TV Remote: TSG Chaoss Box Prototype

YouTube via thesilentguymusic
"Here's a quick demo of the TSG Chaoss Box Prototype, a circuit-bent TV remote control. The IR light was replaced with a minijack socket.

By messing around with the buttons, a lot of interesting sounds can be made. A switch has also been added, which allows the user to switch between the normal and 'chaoss' modes."
