Moog introduces a new software synth Mariana, heavily focused on their trademark bass sound.
"Born from the depths of our legacy in bass synthesis, Mariana breathes new life into electronic sound design techniques for the modern player or producer."
Hammerhead Shark Song
by Chip Tanaka
What the hell to even say about this song? Chip Tanaka is in a league of his own. Chiptune dub, jazztronica, I dunno what to call it. This song never stands still. Like a shark who must swim to breathe, Hammerhead Shark Song slides and swipes from one idea to another. I especially love the shimmer and stomp that happens at about 1:45.
I think my new obession is Data Sonification.
For today's #hachyderm #showoffmonday (and yes, I did just make this up)
I'm showing off an early prototype of my virtual modular synthesizer, built with #rust #rustlang and #egui

If anyone would dig on some Yoni Den music, everything is name your price, or you can get discography for 50cents.
Pop in zero, and should you find yourself with a spare dollar at the end of the day, please consider donating to a bail fund instead.
Hey, it's bandcamp friday, and I would like to promote a new record but I don't have one (next release I'm on comes out in January!)
In the spirit of artist support and trusting human kindness, I've set both my releases to pay what you want, including nothing if that is helpful to you.
My EP includes some cool bonus stuff, like dolby atmos mixes and a cool pdf booklet.
The Yamaha DX7 synth celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. It's quite an influential musical instrument.
In 1986, the DX7 synth preset "E. Piano 1" was "present on 39% of the Billboard Hot 100 number one hit singles, 40% of the country number one hit singles and a staggering 61% of R&B hit singles".
I've hit gold!
These are not the original tracks but covers using Synthesizer and drum machine only, from what I can hear.
Covers are always great because you get a whole new take on a familiar tune
Stand by for the Synthesizer Hits cover of The Model!
Spotted this in the window of my favourite charity shop at lunchtime 😍
The Yamaha PSR 340 with floppy disc drive to record sequences!
A classic 👌
Hab heute das erste Mal etwas sinnvolles für (m)ein iPad gefunden: MiDi #Synth für mein Stage #Piano. Ist ehrlich gesagt ein echt krasser Gamechanger 🤔 Die Soundqualität und Latenz sind enorm gut, merke kein Unterschied zum internen Sound des Pianos. Sehr sehr geil.
Rede übrigens von #SynthmasterOne von kv331 Audio. Auch am PC als VST eine meiner Favorite Synths (verhältnismäßig einsteigerfreundlich).
Vielleicht vielleicht schaffe ich es über die Weihnachtszeit mal was fertig zu bekommen 🙈
The second or third Entropy Circus album since we've been in Vienna. Depends how you count this stuff I guess. It's all annexes and mezzanines really.
Two hours of new material. Free download.
I love this wild, experimental, jazzrock-style chiptune for the Commodore 64 conversion of Bionic Commando (1988), arranged for the 3-channel SID audio chip by Tim Follin, based on the arcade original, composed by Harumi Fujita.
P.S.: If you like this kind of energetic old school chiptune, check out this tune by our own game music composer:
Aunt Thirteen is a Yoni Den side project.
The debut EP release was "Pentagon Dreams"
Inspired by cyberpunk retrotopias, this is street level tech driving music for getting iced on the verse to.
Burn out your ports to the synthetic vibes.

I hope you will enjoy!
Doctor Who’s 60 year anniversary w/out mentioning Delia Derbyshire, electronic music pioneer, producer of the first Doctor Who intro music, … no good.

"Buckets of Modular": playlist where I dump whole albums by modular synth artists mentioned in articles about the synth scene. The opposite of tweezery curation, hence the buckets. Best listened to on shuffle.
The Synths 🎹 playlist is back too:
Lots of PeerTube videos all about synths, synth music, DIY synths, repairing synths, theory of synths etc etc. It's synths, ok! 😁
Video of my Mechanical Techno live set at Machina Bristronica synth expo is up online now - This was the last gig on the tour and had amazing sound engineers and visuals from Syntonie and Autr - really pleased with how it came out
Hello you ‘Industrial Dance’ people. I am required to advertise a compilation on which I appear along with many other old school acts.
Blimey, that #vinceClarke album is a bit of a surprise! Very dark/ambient with a hint of industrial, but little in the way of beats. Sound is very reminiscent of an imaginary #65dos movie soundtrack, or their last album, replicr, with less glitch.
Gonna be listening to this a *lot* I think…
Celebrate tonight's show at the Century by "enjoying" the new HEINRICH! single.
@ohyran Thanks! Yes, Ramon has made a lot of tunes for our games and productions.
You can listen to and download a number of Ramon's tunes as MP3s here:
When I was a youngster in the late 1980s, I formed an Amiga game development team with two partners.
Before making complete games, we started by selling game music that used very little RAM, made with our own music editor: SIDmon.
To promote our game music, this energetic music module was composed by our musician Ramon Braumuller. The file, including tiny sampled sounds, is only 22 kilobytes.
Check out this super-cool instrument called a “DataBass.” Scott Mulvahill, the musician playing it in this video, is the person who invented it. It’s an upright bass with sample triggers affixed to the body. And it sounds absolutely delightful.
If you like, you can have a 95% discount valid on everything using the code:
(full discography less than 2EUR) works only on desktop, not on the app
Take care and enjoy the music!
Love from Italy,
What do you get when you combine a badass synth track, morse code, number stations & a vintage documentary about CIA research with LSD in MKUltra?
Listen to "Heirloom Numbers" by Ether Diver y ArtFED to see.

Happy Moule's Day!
100 releases in less than 3 years. Wow!
From the ancient archive…
My graphics for our Amiga music editor Digital Mugician, featuring real-time generated synth sounds, next to sound samples. It was published by Thalamus in 1990.
Mugician was the unofficial sequel to our music editor SIDmon (1989), and was used for memory-efficient chiptunes in our games.

Cleaning up my hard drive, I found these relics: a title picture and metallic UI skin I made in the late 1990s for the DeliPlayer Windows audio player. 😁
DeliPlayer was able to play lots of obscure audio formats, including all kinds of exotic Amiga module formats. It was made by the German devs who made DeliTracker for the Amiga: Peter Kunath and Florian Vorberger.
