The Morphing Terrarium is a great sounding smooth wavetable oscillator thanks to Robert Rich and Synthesis Tech.....it pairs really well with the ST E355 Morphing Dual LFO.

Loren, what are your thoughts on the Verbos Harmonic Oscillator... lots of very positive comments abound but not heard any demos that really grab me, yet I like the synthesis idea behind it.

With lots of changes in my system there has been some new learning curves.....while I patch everyday nothing was worth pressing record for me until yesterday

Been some turn around in my rig with a fair amount of Make Noise modules sold at ebay......heres some of the new eurorack modules that replaced them

Ieaskul F. Mobenthey.....Sprott
This is one crazy module, a filter thats not a filter thats an oscillator thats a.....each lp, hp, bp and chaos can be patched separately yet each effects the other and all manner of unexpected behavior....nothing gentle about this but further processing delivers.  Still figuring it out but liking the results
 





Noise Engineering.....Loquelic Iteritas
A digital oscillator that sounds as wonderfully nuts as it looks  ???  The timbres this produces is amazing, leaning towards aggressive in sound but again with further processing like through a filter bank the sound begs to be sculpted.





WMD Synchrodyne

This is an analog oscillator and some....more complexed than your typical triangle, saw, square and sine vco





Mannequins....Three Sisters
Love this filter....four sound source coming together into a linked filter 8)  This does not behave like your usual filter!

I received a copy of the original sonic atmospheres "Planetary Unfolding" yesterday.  Have not heard this in 10 years or more. :)

MSP/Earth Turtle are great to deal with.......below is one of the emails they sent me that covers the cdr quality of the 2015 re mastered version.

Hello Julio
The newly re-mastered version is a CD-R but very high quality.
TrepStar uses mastering grade Taiyo Uden blanks and burns the discs one at
a time, not en-masse.
If you'd like a copy of the older version which is pressed, we still have
some here at the office.  The cost would be US $17.50 here in the US, and
$25 if you live outside of the US.  You can pay either with a check, or
via PayPal.
Just let me know what you'd like to do.
Olivia for MSP/EarthTurtle

It was really just yesterday....or so it seems that I watched a video of him standing in front of the Moog reissue of his modular system. Sad indeed.  Your here in a blink.....

Beautiful, graceful music from APK.......this cd had me from the first gentle sounds on track 1 and continued until the last piece that left me with a quiet smile.

Within this music laid in a subtle way are obscured rhythmic elements that are more suggestions that work to enhance the deep melodic structure than any marked time which peaked my interest on top of the beautiful timbres that had warmed my emotion.

The music put me in a "place" that the best of ambient music can and one that I will return to often!

Read my last couple posts.  Short version:  go to his website, email asking if they have Planetary original CD. 

Ah, understood....Thanks

48
Julio, did you read the previous posts?  You can get this for $17.50 total from Stearns site, if they have any left.


I did drone on but Im looking for a pressed cd not a cdr as I understand the current Streans version is or have I not been paying attention.

Planetary Unfolding was the main inspiration for me to get a small Serge modular system which this music was composed on.


49
Groove sent me a status on this.....in stock $22.49 + $9.70 shipping.  In the scheme of things this is a decent price but the shippings getting up there.....Im going to pass.

Thanks for writing this review. Ended up picking up the album digitally through Bandcamp. Lovely stuff.

Thanks cvac.....hope " A Tide Pool resonates with you  :)

While drift towards Andromeda I picked up this transmission of inter galactic jazz..... 8)

https://soundcloud.com/digitalvoices/patch-24?in=digitalvoices/sets/modular-musings

Patch notes : Plucked sounds come from Mutable Instruments Elements with one channel processed by Clouds and sequence by Rene. High pitch hissing stardust comes from Benjolin filter by Twin Peaks and passed through MN Echophone  and Erbeverb.  Low end rumbles comes from Make Noises Phonogene..... lots of CV from random generators, lfos, gates and triggers.  This is a no hands on patch completely self generated.

Enjoy

A very good friend of mine wrote these words to me in an email after listening to these modular soundscapes...


I feel you like a galaxy explorer, traveling alone on its spaceship, crossing various dimensions for the first time.


Very poetic.  I'd go further and say you're creating your own universe.

Good words Forrest.  There is a huge sense of discovery involved in this sort of music making and the most amount of immediate learning that seems to exist at the same time.  I feel like I have really not listened to music in the same way as I do when creating on the modular. 

Certainly this is new territory so that can add excitement and stimulate enthusiasm to journey further.

Many years ago, I had the choice of buying a motor bike and becoming a hells angel or buying a synthesizer (roland 100 modular).

I decided I could go many places on a motorbike, but anywhere I wanted on a synth.... 8)

Beautiful put Seren

One has to find the appropriate time and moment to immerse himself in this listening.
The sounds are really amazing and I can easily visualize yourself while in the creation process.
I feel you like a galaxy explorer, traveling alone on its spaceship, crossing various dimensions for the first time.
 
I think we actually miss a lot of space video footage where your music would fit.
 
I also can feel the joy you have while exploring.
 
Musically wise, the tracks I listened, there were deep sounds quite hypnotizing that I liked very much with often a little persisting noise that distracted me from the trance.
I understand life and universes are not all about sweet and pleasant encounters but instead populated by all kind of energies including the most life threatening ones and what you creates is more about true reality than just a polarized-one-side-of-the-creation-only reflection.
 
You will continue to familiarize with your spaceship and discover more and more of it's possibilities although you may never completely master the beast to the point of becoming a virtuoso as this kind of spaceship go probably further than what human can perceive and cope with. That's their beauty.

Really enjoyed the quick spin I had over at Bandcamp.....love the palette on this.  Looking forward to a deeper listening when the CD arrives!

Have to do with modulars.....this, the eurorack version.  A quick sequence of videos going into it and a more in depth look at the end. Loving this.
