‘Centaur’ Ambient with Wavestate, Iridium, Prophet 10 & Minifreak

From Martin Stürtzer on YouTube, via matrixsynth.

This is just a little Sunday treat for you, because I am not able to do a livestream today. The track starts with a pad from the Korg Wavestate, which I used as in its native plugin version. The following sequence uses the wavetable engines of Waldorf’s Iridium. The bass is from the Prophet 10 and the lead melody from the Arturia Minifreak. Effects are U-He Color Copy, Valhalla DSP Shimmer.

Neptun went into a hyperactive state when I started the recording, he played a note (this time in key!) at 03:19

Rubia, Sequential Six-Trak, Korg MS-10, Casio VZ-1

Rubia sits atop a vintage Sequential Six-Trak synthesizer and looks ready to pounce on the Casio VZ-1 (to the left). Above her, we see a Korg MS-10 analog synthesizer and in the lower right corner a vintage Rhodes.

From AxWax via Mastodon. AxWax and Rubia also have a new sample pack out featuring samples from a 40-year old Casiotone MT-70 keyboard. We at CatSynth look forward to checking that out.

Orion, Serge Panels, and more

Orion returns, and handsome as ever! His collection of Serge Panels seems to be growing 😺. We do see the Sequential P6 off to the left. Behind him, we see some classic audio gear including Culture Vulture, Joe Meek, and a Retro Revolver compressor.

‘Aristophanes’ Dub Ambient (Syntakt, Digitakt, OB-6, Prophet 10 , Pulse 2)

A gentle and inviting ambient synth jam with the Elektron Digitakt and Syntakt, Sequential OB-6 and Prophet 12, and Waldorf Pulse 2. From Martin Stürtzer on YouTube. Originally seen on matrixsynth.

Setup of this track: The Digitakt plays the drums and controls the OB-6 (Track 9), Prophet 10 (Track 10) and the Waldorf Pulse 2 (Track 11) over midi. The Syntakt plays the first sequence (Track 1), the pad (Track 2) and the lead sound (Track 5). The Midi Fighter Twister controls the levels in Bitwig and the effects, which are Valhalla DSP Delay, Supermassive and Vintage Verb.

2934 Aristophanes /ˌærɪˈstɒfəniːz/, provisional designation 4006 P-L, is a carbonaceous Veritasian asteroid from the outer regions of the asteroid belt, approximately 22 kilometers in diameter. It was discovered during the Palomar–Leiden survey in 1960, and later named after ancient Greek dramatist Aristophanes. https://tinyurl.com/2t5f5vu6

Persephone in the Studio

Persephone (aka “Mewskers”) is in the command chair of her very impressive studio. This studio is also used by our friend Rob Robinson and his industrial/noise/EBM project Order of the Static Temple (where we found this photo).

In front of Persephone is a Nord keyboard, to her left is a Sequential synthesizer, behind that a venerable Roland SH-101. We also see offerings from Behringer, Akai, Korg, and Ensoniq!

You can see more of Persephone via her tag.
