Tiptop Audio Forbidden Planet.⠀⠀ ⠀ This an all analog multi-mode filter design influenced by the 1975 Steiner-Parker Synthacon model.⠀ ⠀ Forbidden Planet has three filter input jacks: High Pass, Low Pass and Band Pass. The High Pass section is this module’s signature sound—a crisp sharp-cut with no residue, designed to add High Pass filtering capability to your modular.⠀ ⠀ The Bandpass is clear and useful in isolating a pie-slice-range-of-frequencies while cutting off the low and highs, great for accurate sound design or sculpting audio into that sweet spot.⠀ ⠀ The Low Pass, on the other hand, is a classic 12db two-pole analog slope, ideal for monophonic synth patches and filtering down to the essential low-end bass we all love.⠀ ⠀ Lastly, the Resonance utilizes an internal feedback path which can sound smooth or aggressive depending on the knob setting. At a low setting, it emphasizes the cutoff harmonics, at middle settings it begins to self oscillate, and towards maximum setting it forms interesting tones and all sorts of chopped grainy bits of self-oscillation perfect for entering into a sci-fi world —like the name of the module suggests.⠀ ⠀ #syntherest#synth#synthesizer#tiptop#tiptopaudio#forbiddenplanet#synthporn#gearporn#music#eurorack#modular#analog#modularsynth#filter#vcf#steinerparker#synthacon
"In space no one can hear you bossa nova..."🛸👽🕺🏽 Couldn't go live with this monster because the Apogee lead died, but here's a quick slice of the Sankei/Synthacon experiments we were working on (just recorded one-handed through the phone mic). There's a bit more on the Story. Will get the tech working later this week. Be afraid. (And no, I didn't make it to the phone! 😂) #steinerparker#synthacon
Holy shit. Just popped by the office. Just turned on the Synthacon for the first time since it was finished. Holy shit. One note. Incredible. That is all I have to say. Need a lie down now. Gid x PS Swipe 👉 for when things really got crazy. Still one note tho...
2 genius analog electronic musical instrument color coded routing matrices from the 1970’s by Nyle Steiner (switches) & Don Buchla (banana jacks). I’m guessing they may have been influenced by similar matrices used in portable analog computers from the 1960’s 😊. I haven’t seen anything as immediately flexible, tactile and instantaneous as these in 21st century synth design.. #steinerparker#synthacon#buchlamusiceasel#buchla_music_easel #donbuchla#nylesteiner#toddbarton#analogcomputer
