Check out this video with Dr. Robert Schneider and Elijah Wood presenting a new kind of synth controller:

By the way, the new Apples in Stereo record is here

Snazzy FX makes some of the coolest stompboxes. The Tracer City is one of them. Here is a short demo:

It will cost you about 500$ and can be bought from

Analogue Haven in the US and
Schneiders Buero in Berlin

If you’re into DIY and got an Arduino board, why not try to make the FOF/granular based Auduino synth in this video?

Instructions are here

Here’s another example, using the stylus controller from the Gakken SX-150 synth kit:

In this video, you’ll see Olivier Messiaens composition Oraison (1937) performed by Richard Leinhart. He’s playing the Haken Continuum Fingerboard (expensive controller) controlling the Buchla 200e (even more expencive synthesizer).  It’s very beautiful:

Originally, the piece was written for six ondes martenots. Read more about the performance here.
And another interesting post on Richard Leinhart, the Fingerboard and the Buchla here.

Why are they such a great band?

Here is why:

This video is from their DVD Where we’re calling from, released 2003 – discovered by me today.

I’m allergic to cats, so I’m not a big fan of them, but this one is so cute!

Dave Smith Instruments Evolver is a great little monosynth

I found a nice video on Youtube that demonstrates the interesting results you can achieve with the DSI Evolver:

Here’s a smart Youtube tip: add “&fmt=18” at the end of the video url and you’ve got a stereo version of the video! I’m not sure if this applies to every video.. Check the difference in sound quality of the above video by listening to the mono version here:

As you can hear, the stereo version is a lot better. With the DSI Evolver you can make some very interesting stereo sounds, and it’s probably one of the most inspiring synths to program if you’re after some nice evolving sounds.

There exists an alternative manual for Evolver, its called The Definitive Guide to Evolver. It’s made by Anu Kirk and can be downloaded from this location:

Does anyboy know other resources on the Evolver? Please post a comment..
