Just for fun, some ultra-minimal technoid made with Giorgio Sancristoforo’s early electronic music studio simulation, Berna3. The video was made with TouchDesigner.

Berna3 – (Virtual) Test Equipment Technoid

Some ultra-minimal technoid made with Giorgio Sancristoforo’s early electronic music studio simulation, Berna3.

The Berna3 patch is available here.

XORbot is somewhat related to NANDroid, in that it uses logical operations to generate sounds, and features a similar modulation setup and synth engine.  The synth itself is finished, just working on presets and a manual.

Here’s an audio demo, starting from a preset and tweaking knobs:

I’ve been uploading stuff to patchstorage.com, starting with my VCV Rack patches. I’ve also started adding Reaktor stuff, and in the process have made a demo video for Loid’s Cousin. The others will follow in the near future.

Loid’s Cousin (Reaktor synth) Demo

“Loid’s Cousin” is a noisebox/sound generator based on concepts from my DIY Lunetta modular, complete with blinkenlichten. Lunettas are simple machines based…

NANDroid is a noisebox synth based loosely on the TrigPulser module I built for my hardware Lunetta-style modular. As such, it shares some DNA with the “Loid’s Cousin” Reaktor ensemble as well, which also features a section based on that module. This plugin takes the idea in a slightly different direction though, with stuff like LFO’s and a filter.

You can get the plugin (in VST3i format) and hear audio demos at the VST plugins page.

As a huge fan of the ESQ-1/SQ 80– and Ensoniq synths in general– I couldn’t resist getting Arturia’s new emulation during the introductory sale. Some minor issues aside, it seems to be a great emulation, and I’m having fun with it. I decided to put together a bank of patches for it, including a few sounds from my archive imported via SysEx and modified. The imported files have all caps in the names, and overlap with the SQ-8L bank also available from the Synth Patches page, though these versions are different now.

The SQuee 80 bank includes 48 patches, and is a free download. Enjoy!

As previously mentioned, Particul is another noisebox/sound generator based around two noisy random-ish generators, each with lowpass and bandpass filters, which can then be run through a frequency shifter and delay. It has now been released, and is available from the Reaktor page on this site, or the NI Reaktor User Library.
