  4. Waldorf Iridium has made the impossible possible. The mighty synth engine from Quantum is now available in a compact form. Tracing the footsteps of its bigger brother, Iridium features all the synthesis elements of Quantum as well in a rack-compatible format. The combination of the powerful engine, incredible flexibility and detailed sound shaping facilities creates sheer endless possibilities of sound. Yet, the comprehensive layout and easy-to-understand structure lets you design your own sounds in no time. Sporting a solid metal casing and the same high level of craftsmanship like Quantum, Iridium is now ready to take over studios and stages throughout the world. Contributing another entry in Waldorf's rich history, Iridium joins the family as a direct descendant of the PPG Wave. Though, Iridium offers much more than its ancestor. Five different synthesis models are provided by Iridium for each of the three oscillators: Wavetable Waveform (Virtual Analog) Particle (Sampling and Granular Sampling) Resonator Kernels Kernel mode has been introduced with the OS 2.0 of Quantum. This huge upgrade allows one oscillator to be turned into up to six sub oscillators. These can be interlinked through FM at audio rate and arranged in user-definable constellations. Just this upgrade alone would have provided enough additional features to create a synthesizer on its own. Now, all those functions have been integrated into Iridium as well. Up to 7000 patches can be saved in Iridium. Patches from Quantum can be loaded in Iridium and vice-versa. Iridium features three digital filters per voice. Two in the Dual Filter section and another one in the Digital Former. Several types are available to choose from: 12 or 24dB and Lowpass/Highpass/Bandpass with optional saturation or dirtiness. Various filter models are available including those from Waldorf Nave, Largo and PPG 3V. The Dual Filter section can be controlled independently or together in several different link modes. The Digital Former offers all the filter types and models from the Dual Filter plus unusual models like Comb, Drive, Bitcrusher and more in addition. All filters retain a true stereo signal throughout the entire structure of the instrument. Up and down, back and forth 6 Envelopes, 6 LFOs and many more are just waiting for being used as sources in the 40 slots of the Modulation Matrix. Each slot has one additional control amount. Modulations can be directed to almost every numerical value in Iridium. All sources and destinations can be used as many times as desired until the Modulation Matrix is full. If you ever happen to run out of LFOs or Envelopes, you can use the Komplex Modulator for generating a custom shape LFO or Envelope. Complex, but not complicated Even though Iridium features a staggering amount of parameters to control, everything is organized in a logic structure which is easy to master. The major controls have their own dedicated knob, while the rest is accessible through the touch screen and the encoders around. There are no long menus keeping you from doing what you had planned. Instead, you will find a workflow which you will soon miss on other synthesizers. Hands-on Embedded in the front panel, a 4x4 silicon pad matrix invites you to launch notes, chords, arpeggios and sequences with up to 32 steps for notes and multiple parameter lines. Direct access to the parameters is granted by the seven encoders to the left and the right hand side of the touch screen. Iridium Rueckseite Take a look inside! Iridiums large color touch screen keeps you informed at all times. Upon moving a knob, Iridium gives you an optical feedback of your changes in real-time. Filter curves move, Particle grain sizes change, Envelopes warp and much more: Komplex Modulator curves can be drawn with your finger Envelopes show at which point the voices currently are Wavetables are displayed in comprehensive view modes VU meters show which voices are used and the individual voice levels Different Analyzers show the audio signal at different points Get connected Two Audio Outputs allow you to listen to Iridium, while two Inputs allow Iridium to process external signals. 4 CV inputs plus Gate In and Trigger In are ready to forward external signals to the Mod Matrix. Furthermore, Clock In and Clock Out will get your gear in sync. MIDI connections can be made through USB and DIN MIDI. Iridium is also equipped with a USB Host port for MIDI devices. This port also handles data exchange, in addition to the MicroSD card slot. Once again, Waldorf have underlined their status with a new and exciting synthesizer. Iridium is designed, constructed and made in Germany. All components used are industrial grade quality to create a reliable studio device that is made to last for many years.

  8. Salamanders After Dinner by -Ing -Ing = Charles Rice Goff III & Steve Schaer The evolution of the Taped Rugs audio project called "-Ing" took a big step toward its eventual full bloom in the summer of 1982. Up until then, -Ing's Frippertronics-style audio loop recording set-up relied on the interactions between a Pioneer RT-707 reel-to-reel tape deck and a Sony TC-630. The different ways that each machine handled inputs and outputs required that the Pioneer serve as the recording deck in the loop set-up, while the Sony served as the playback deck. (For readers unfamiliar with Frippertronics, a rudimentary explanation is available here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frippertronics) Goff and Schaer often would alter the speeds of one or both of the tape decks during recording sessions to produce unique sounds. They accomplished this not only by flipping switches while the decks spun around, but also by physically grabbing, tapping, and twisting the reels of tape. Such physical abuse added to the unnatural wear and tear that the decks suffered from running their motors in tandem to accommodate -Ing's Frippertronics set-up. By late 1981, the Sony TC-630 had begun to randomly change speeds on its own during operation. This, in turn, regularly broke up rhythms and intuitive elements of -Ing's improvisations, causing Goff and Schaer considerable frustration. By spring, 1982, the motors in the worn-down Sony could no longer keep up with those in the Pioneer at all. So in early summer, Goff and Schaer purchased an identical Pioneer to mate with their own RT-707. These Pioneer decks were hearty, well-built, machines that could take a lot of abuse. Over the next ten years, they not only served to generate all of –Ing's audio loop recordings, but were also used by the Taped Rugs acts: Disism, Herd Of The Ether Space, and Goff himself, to create hundreds of audio loops for studio projects and live performances. -Ing's new double RT-707 set-up provided Goff and Schaer with the ability to create uninterrupted loops of sound with very regular timing. Goff and Schaer were then, in turn, able to focus their attention more on making aberrant sounds, rhythms, and washes with their musical instruments, and less on dealing with the quirky mechanics of their recording process. "Salamanders After Dinner" was recorded in August, 1982, at one of the first sessions held after -Ing had upgraded its recording system. It is an entire, uninterrupted, 43-minute long improvisation, which intuitively evolves from mood to mood through a wide variety of sonic atmospheres. It highlights Schaer's uniquely percussive, as well as psychedelic, approaches to synthesizer playing. Goff's electronic guitar playing -- embellished by slides, vibrators, playing cards, and foot pedals -- is on full display as well. Staying true to -Ing's roots, both the recording's beginning and ending feature some vicious tape manipulation. In these bookend passages, however, the reels were tugged and slapped with only the purest "artistic" intentions, entirely unprovoked by any funky recording equipment glitches. "Salamanders After Dinner" is Volume Two of the "Unveiled -INGredients" series of audio recordings. Schaer and Goff recorded many hours of tape loop experiments as "-Ing" between 1980 and 1984. Most of the reel-to-reel tapes from those sessions have long since disappeared. Steve Schaer himself sadly left behind the world of the living in 1998 as well. However, in 2019, Steve's widow, Dee Ann, discovered some cassette copies of a few of the original -Ing reels, which Schaer had recorded back in the 1980s. She passed these off to Robert Silverman (one of the original -Ing artists represented on -Ing's first public release), and he forwarded them to Goff in the spring of 2020. The "Unveiled -INGredients" series was created from these cassette recordings.

  10. An ode to the moss, lichen and algae of this and other worlds; Microflora is Jack's first cassette release since 1993. I was drawn to Jack's compositions after observing him perform on a radio program a few years ago. Jack's conscious and active involvement in the process of generating ambient sound-spaces, is refreshing and stimulating, and lends a narrative quality to the work. The title of Jack's own small record publishing label, "Aural Films", suggests the focus of his audio works, which are cinematic in their approach to composition and performance. For the listener, Jack's work is like watching a film with one's ears. This is also why I reached out to Mea to provide the striking and equally narrative visuals for this album. So, with the synthesis of Jack's audio journey and Mea's inspiring visual prompt, follow these artists into a realm where living structures, normally obscured beyond the curtain of micro-scale, emerge as landscape and architecture for the wandering and questing listener...

    Yamaha CS-15D

    As always when it comes to "preset synthesizers" the CS15d is usually overlooked. The Synth is one of the last Yamaha monophonic Synthesizers-range (manufactured from 1979-1982, I think) and was phased out shortly before the DX7-craze-bells-mode went completely through the roof. This is why the CS15d is forgotten, I presume. This is sad because you can get A LOT out of this small and beautiful machine. The 29 presets alone are sounding good. It´s true analogue and due to combining and mixing possibilities (and the tuning knob in between the two channels) there is already a lot to discover when you tweak here and there. The last preset is called "manual" and by pressing it, it unfolds the Manual-block on the right of the CS15d. This is a full blown VCO, VCF, VCA block which affects one of the two preset - "channels". The other channel still represents a chosen preset, which you can now mix or combine with your own programmings. I love the clear sound of the CS15d already but when you combine it with some fx this synth sounds mighty. My CS15d runs through a full loaded Yamaha SB-200 board and the combination of these two units is a sound universe for many years to discover. Definitely a well underrated synth!

  20. Electronic music is created in a social and sometimes even political context. For some time now, my music has been increasingly influenced by the external circumstances of the world we live. In this regard, I would like my work to be understood as an acoustic, musical commentary. Corroded Immunity meets a world in a state of emergency in the context of a biological as well as medical crisis caused by a pandemic. But it is also a observation of how we as a society deal with this threat. Therefore, this album has three parts (or three tracks) that represent different perceived levels of threat. The first piece is a distant, rather global mood caused by the increasing threat of the crisis, the second piece expresses the own restriction or isolation in succession. The last and shortest piece is the immediate outbreak on the spot.

  22. Artificial was originally released in 2011 as an MP3 collection of 16 tracks produced between 2009 and 2011. What I did not realize at the time was this album began my interest in composing what I now think of as thematic sound paintings between music and noise. What would eventually lead to the creation of a label for this kind of music called Aural Films. EMjoy these re-mastered tracks now available in full 16-bit fidelity.
  23. Label 45 Echoes Sounds, of course, first of all strives for bright, dreamy cosmic ambient, melodically bright sounds (this is what we really love). But from the very beginning of our existence, we are still trying to offer you different facets, different sides of the sound of ambient music, its different styles. And today in our catalog is a wonderful dark and ritual album of a musician from Serbia.

  25. After a two-year hiatus, the EugeneKha and West Remi collaboration is recording its fourth numbered album. For the first time, it will not be related to the fantastic story of the planet IINKHE. The music of the album is not tied to sci-fi themes. We are writing a very calm, beautiful ambient album. But as a promo single we chose two compositions that stand apart. Moreover, they were originally recorded for another album. But, despite their “aggressive” sound, they logically fit into the concept of the new album, slightly diluting the dreamy sound with rhythms and mysticism. What else is unusual in these tracks? Only that they contain original compositions from the solo works of each of the two members of the duet. We plan to complete the album itself in the summer and, probably, by the autumn you will already hear it. View full album

  28. This composition was specially created for Cosmonautics Day (April 12) and was supposed to be performed at the annual Moscow festival of space music “Ours in Space”. But the Covid-19 virus made its tragic adjustments to the schedule of live performances. Therefore, we had a little more time to make this composition even better. And now we are pleased to present it to you. Like many of our tracks, “Return to Orbit” is inspired by the feat of people working in Space. In addition, this track has become an experiment in the field of sound recording for us (and we love to experiment and use non-standard instruments: for example, children's synthesizers). Here, for the first time, we decided to use the completely free audio station (DAW) LMMS for programming the drum parts and most of the synthesizer parts. It was fun and exciting. This single is not only available on our Bandcamp, but also in many online stores, such as Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music, Deezer, Spotify, Yandex Music, etc. View full album
