Kyma Grain Clouds Processing

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate various granular synthesis techniques with a Symbolic Sound Paca sound computer running Kyma 7. SSC’s Paca(rana) / Kyma is arguably the world’s most powerful and flexible sound design environment. The Paca(rana) is a small but powerful multiprocessor computer that sits unobtrusively alongside your Mac or PC and does…

Roland MKS80 & MPG80 Super Jupiter Tweaking

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate various synthesis techniques with a Roland MKS80 & MPG80 Super Jupiter. Released in 1984 (the same year as the Juno 106), the MKS80 is an eight-voice rack polysynth with two voltage controlled oscillators per voice and MIDI functionality. Sharing a portion of its name with Roland’s legendary Jupiter…

All About Digital Oscillators Part 2 – BLITS & BLEPS

  In our last article, entitled ‘All About Digital Oscillators Part 1 – Aliasing & Foldover’, we discussed aspects of digital oscillator design within modern synthesis.  We made the grand statement that the most important and deployed approach in digital synthesizer design within the modern landscape is the use of quasi band-limited oscillators to reduce…

Minimoog Model D Processed by Eventide H8000FW

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate processing a vintage Moog Minimoog Model D via an Eventide H8000FW FX processor. The H8000FW is arguably the most powerful and comprehensive FX processor ever made. It features two powerful DSP chips that can each run a high quality algorithm independently, 16 channels of simultaneous I/O and almost…

Wave Junction Filter Routing

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate filter routing on the Wave Junction, a Max For Live synthesizer developed in partnership with Sonicstate.com. The Wave Junction features three independent state variable filters, each with independent controls. Using filtering, you can remove frequencies fed from the raw harmonics of the oscillators and the noise sources in…

ARP 2600 Filter Modulation Patching

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate filter modulation patching on an ARP 2600. The ARP 2600 is famous for providing the sound of R2D2 in the original Star Wars film, its heavy use on Stevie Wonder’s early material and providing the main riff on Underworld’s ‘Rez”.  This is a V4.0 2600 released in 1974…

Roland SH5 Oscillator & Filter Tweaking

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate oscillator & filter modulation on a Roland SH5. The SH5 is arguably the greatest mono synth Roland ever manufactured. The SH5 features two filters that run in parallel: a state variable 24dB diode ladder filter that can be modulated via a variety of sources and a static parametric…

RSF Kobol Xpander Oscillator Modulation

  In this video, Meta Function demonstrate oscillator modulation on a RSF Kobol Xpander I & II. The Kobol features continuous morphing of the oscillators waveshapes. Oscillator one is modulated via a triangle LFO, with oscillator two modulated via the same LFO but with a S&H waveshape. The Kobol’s filter is a SSM2040, designed by…
