Hereby I announce the start of a new series: Music and Sound Machines DIY From Zero to Hero.
Making sound generating and sound tweaking hardware with inexpensive and basic parts and using them to do real practical and professional sound design, and to produce music. Making sound installations, sonic art, and pushing the borders of working with sound far far ahead. But I need your help!
Enjoy your day!
This series of talks with successful and interesting people (musicians, producers, composers, manufacturers, sound designers, promoters, music marketers) has the motto “Learning about and learning from”. Today Rolf´s guest is the Argentinian musician, instrument builder and VSTi coder Gustavo Valletto. He is the man behind
It´s all about the oscillator sections. The VSTi comes with 11 different kinds of oscillators, each of which equipped with legions of functions and waves. This is video shows and explains the details of the oscillators called “CLASSIC” and “MODERN”.

This series of talks with successful and interesting people from the music-sound-producer-promoter scene has the motto “Learning about and learning from”. Rolf´s guest is the German electronic musician, composer and sound artist Bernd-Michael Land.
Born on June 11th 1954 he is one of the German electronic musicians of the first hour.
I show the general structure of the synth: oscillators, scenes, FX, modulators, Global functions with MPE, scales, micro tuning, Wavetables, patch categories and patch browser etc.
There are going to be 6 more videos in this series:
Part 2: The oscillators, their parameter-sets and wave presets
Part 3: The scenes and their parameters
“The ARP 2500 Part 6 – The Sample And Hold Module 1036” is online now. You can watch the whole video of more than 1 hour on YouTube:
And here is the content/timeline:
0:01:00 Basic Functionality of S&H Modules, Corn Flakes And a Child´s Toy
It´s a full-fledged piece of sound-art now!
The track "Morning Haze" is inspired by the text "Morning Haze" by Rolf Kasten. This text was firstly published on the Internet in the 5th Video (non-public, donationware or members only) of the series about the ARP 2500 (formerly only about the Behringer clones, now extended to the G2500, to Voltage Modular´s version and to Mos-Labs products), where it serves as a textural demonstration of some functions of the Multimode Filter Module 1047.
It´s the longest and the most complex video I´ve ever made.
I have divided it into 5 parts, so that you can watch them on Dropbox without the need to download the whole project.
Only parts A and D are a bit longer than 1 hour (the longest time Dropbox allows us to watch online). You will lose the last 5 minutes of Part A and about 3 seconds of Part D, if you don´t want to download them (but you can download them of course).
Making this video was a challenge. It´s part 5 in my series about the ARP 2500, and it´s about the Multimode Filter / Resonator module 1047.
The more than 4 hours of video for "The ARP 2500 Show" is finished. More about it on Wednesday evening.
