Erica Synths Matrix Mixer claims to be able to re-patch your Eurorack system

By News No Comments

Part of the joy of running a Eurorack system is the continual re-patching – at least, this is what fans would tell you – but although you have all the time or energy to do this in the studio, there are other pressures while you are playing.

The Matrix Mixer from Erica Synths claims to “re-patch your system with the touch of a simple click.”

The Erica Synths Matrix Mixer is a desktop patch matrix with 16 inputs and 16 outputs, can route and mix signals with great precision, as well as produce buffered multiples and randomized patches.

The Matrix Mixer is compatible with semi-modular synthesizers and converter cards for the EMS Synthi and Buchla Music Easel. The Matrix Mixer will be especially beneficial in performances that combine Eurorack and other performance instruments, such as drums, guitars, wind instruments, and so on, thanks to easy patch changes through panel buttons or MIDI program change signals.

Product specifications:

  • All analog signal path
  • 16 buffered, DC coupled inputs
  • 16 independent, buffered, DC coupled outputs
  • 256 connections, each with 3 attenuation levels
  • Random pattern mode with definable randomization area and density
  • 254 pattern memory
  • Pattern change via MIDI program change messages
  • 32 3,5mm jack sockets
  • 4 6,3mm jack sockets

The Matrix Mixer is now available for pre-order on the Erica Synths website. It costs $599/€490 and is expected to ship soon.

By Reviews No Comments

Michael James has emerged as one of the most active musicians in our genre in recent years, appearing on a variety of prominent labels like Constant Sound, Fuse London, Mulen Records, and Rowle.

Michael James has done a lot of one-on-one tutoring over the last several years, and people have often complained that it’s difficult to find tutorials online that are genuinely focused on underground electronic music. Rich was also interested in sharing his enormous knowledge of production, as he was frequently publishing short lessons and ideas on his Instagram and offering an insight into his workflow that not many artists share.

This is how The Source came to be; you can discover all of the Producer Tutorials you’re used to seeing on their Instagram accounts, as well as access to special sample packs, masterclasses, gadgets, and patches.

The place for amazing tutorials

Once you sign up for the website, you will receive a free download of Michael James’ Maximiser, Rich NxT’s new sample pack, and Michael James’ first lesson on the platform, which concentrates on drums and percussion.

The Source has tutorials for both beginners and professionals, and each video is created by a well-known artist who shows and teaches his abilities step by step. These include Rossi, Burnski, Lauren Lo Sung, Giorgio Maulini, Djoko, Alexis Cabrera, and more.

The Source is a comprehensive page integrated with the tutorials you have been waiting for, and it has already been one year since its launch; we advise you to join up and enjoy the entire experience.

Behringer presents a new modified version of their TD-3

By News No Comments

With a wicked adjusted version of their TD-3 bassline synth, Behringer takes it to a whole new level.

Behringer’s latest activities have a surreal quality to them. It first unveiled a ‘new’ MKII version of their RD-8 drum machine, which is, obviously, a clone of Roland’s TR-808, and now the TD-3-MO, a modded-out version of the company’s TD-3 bassline synth.

This model has an even stranger background; it’s a second-generation TD-3 (a reboot of Roland’s TB-303 bassline synth) that looks to be based on Robin Whittle’s tricked-out Devil Fish 303. As a result, you might call it an updated replica that was also influenced by a prior mod project.

For more information on the new features, watch the video above or visit the Behringer website. The TD-3-MO will be available for $199 in silver and yellow. It is believed to be in the process of being sent.

Behringer’s UB-Xa Oberheim synth is nearly done

By News No Comments

Behringer’s UB-Xa, a redesign of the Oberheim OX-Xa, was “almost ready”.  Behringer has subsequently declared that the design is finished and that beta testing for the synth has ended, indicating that progress has been achieved.

The UB-Xa has been in development for three years and was designed to be a direct replica of the OB-Xa at first but changed in the process. As a result, it has evolved into “a monstrous synthesizer with several capabilities and sound choices,” according to Behringer.

Behringer shows us their new synthesizer in the video below, so you can get a sense of what to anticipate.
