Oxford Overdrive Sound Pack for Elektron Monomachine

10th April

Oxford Overdrive Sound Pack is my second wavetable pack made specifically for the Monomachine commissioned by Elektron Music Machines.

The idea was to sample vintage synthesizer in order to get single cycle wave forms, as User Waves.  These can be used, as part of  wavetable synthesis sound engine utilised in the Monomachine. It is used for extending the sound palette, changing the tone and adding a bit of vibe from the old keyboard synths to the modern machine.

OSCar is classic British mono synth released in 1983 by Oxford Synthesiser Company (OSC). Big thanks goes to John Diver who let me use his unit, so I could create this sound pack. I’ve been told he got it new once it was released.

OSCar is really unique synth having DCO’s with additive synthesis on board. You can use one of the five fixed special wave forms or make …



Immortal Waves Sound Pack for Elektron Monomachine

19th December

Recently I have been involved in really exciting project with Elektron Music Machines. The idea was to sample vintage analog synthesizers especially for Monomachine SFX-60 groovebox to get single cycle wave forms, as User Waves.  These can be used, as part of  wavetable synthesis sound engine utilised in the machine. It is used for extending the sound palette, changing the tone and adding a bit of vibe from the old keyboard synths to the modern machine.

Immortal Waves pack was made using vintage Minimoog Model D owned by Department of Electronics at the University of York (Big thanks to John Grant and Andrew Chadwick for letting me in to use this lovely synth). I had around 2h to sample Minimoog, so started with the raw waveforms of all three oscillators and then played with the synth aiming to get the most …



Elektron Rack – Do it yourself

1st June

Few people asked me how did I make my Elektron rack, which have been part of my live setup for the last few years. I used it in RPE Duo and Space F!ght among others. That’s why I decided to make a guide or at least posted few photos showing the rack in detail. Hope it is useful. I will be making pdf to cover more details so please email me if you have any questions or suggestions.

Background

It all started after reading this thread. I decided to do this rack/stand to fit both Elektron machines into the hand luggage. The aim was to have secure solution for travelling via cheap airlines and reduce the flight costs for my gigs in Europe. It also meant saving space on my desk which filled up with new gear quickly. Unfortunately it didn’t fulfill the security for gear …
