ARP Odyssey Synth Jam - Spiral Sequence

Swiss synth Guru Bruno Ender Lee plays an original piece on his magnificent ARP Odyssey Mk III

Recorded on four stereo tracks with nothing more than a bit of stereo delay, this is a perfect example of how to get the most out of a single piece of gear. I've always loved the Odyssey (a favourite of John Fox and Billy Currie of Ultravox) and this shows off the capability of this little beast very well.

Check out his YouTube Channel for even more original synth pieces. His collection of analogue gear is bound to get you salivating!

Launchpad Sequencer - Step Indicators

Just a quick update on the progress of the sequencer I'm building in Max for my final year project. I wanted the Automap lights along the top of the Launchpad to show which step was currently playing, so I used the counter object in Max to trigger a chain of objects that turn each light on and off in sequence.

Here is an overview of the patch itself:

Free Juno-style Chorus Plugin from TAL

If you are looking for instant lushness for your synth parts then look no further. Togu Audio Line have just released a standalone emulation of the Chorus module from their stunning U-NO-LX synth - a near perfect emulation of the Roland Juno 6.

Chorus-LX adds that beautifully rich Juno sound to anything you like. I've been using it to beef up the sound of The Waldorf Edition today and the results are stunning.

Just like on the Juno 6 and 60 (although strangely not the 106) you can enable each chorus individually or both together. The dry/wet control is a nice touch that wasn't part of the original, and it makes the plugin that little bit more versatile. This is one of the best chorus plugins I have ever used, because it's so simple that you can get a great sound out of it every time.

It is available to download as a Windows and Mac VST as well as an Audio Unit, in 32 and 64 bit flavours.
