Syltjam 2014 – Recap

Posted on May 6th, 2014

Another fine meetup of geeky synthesizers and nice people!

This time we were gracefully hosted at some friends house in the outskirts of Malmö. The event began at noon on Saturday, with people joining in all afternoon. Many frequencies were produced during the evening, none were recorded.

We hope you will all join us for the next Syltjam!

Nwdlbots + Blok Modular + Ableton Live

Posted on September 13th, 2011

So, I found these Max4Live-patches a while back called Nwdlbots. They are a collection of generative gadgets for Ableton Live. They’re quite fun to play around with, specially if they get to generate midi for something as flexible as a modular synth, like Blok Modular.

I managed to record some of the randomness that came out of this encounter!
What you hear are a couple of event generators, a scalebot, dynabot, one blok modular and some native ableton-fx.


You can get the Nwdlbots from here (requires Ableton Live and Max4Live). And Blok Modular is avalible as VSTi and as a Buzz machine, download here.

Mister Magisters – Toy Modular

Posted on August 3rd, 2011

Iv been sitting on this pair of Mister Magister for a while now, they are somewhat similar to a swedish talking Speak & Spell. After finding some funny bends i couldnt decide what components to put in it so i decided to make it modular. The tiny patchbays on the front goes to soilderpoints on the card and by putting different components in the patchbay you can get the machine to flip out in all kind of ways. Sometimes its screaming and making little noisebursts and other times it gives you strange ryhtmic melodies, bleeps and bloops. Then if you get tired of all the wackyness you can rip everything out of the patchbay and now it will speak pretty much randomly from its memory. Making strange sentences, poetry. In swedish.

AudioGL – Modular 3D Music Program

Posted on July 1st, 2011

I havnt had my mind blown like this since 1996 when i fooled around with FT2 for the first time. Im speechless! And it takes pretty much to impress me with a music-program. I want this now! Its like a wet dream of every nice program iv ever tried. The modularity of MAX/MSP, Buzz-Tracker & PD. The Beuty of a Farbrausch demo. It makes me not want to buy a modular synthesizer! I love that you seem to build your music out of envelopes and that you can see them at work in a 3D-view.  Dare i say that is is the future of musical programs? I want it to be!
Stop reading my silly text and look at the videos!!!

Modular wednesday – Gus Gus live @ Harpa

Modular Tuesday – ::vtol::

Posted on May 3rd, 2011

vtol – or Dmitry Morozov. A Moscow based artist and mad genius.

Over the years he has created some of the most original pieces of musical hardware the internets has ever seen.

The main focus of his work is the “system”, a home-made, digital, modular, lofi synthesizer!

So far he’s built a bunch of noisy synths, sequencers, filters, glitch-effects, samplers, controllers and cv-processors.

It’s patchable internally and between machines and while not built to any standards, it also works together with other modulars.

Also, they are produced in limited numbers, so if you want one for yourself, you can pick one up at vtol.tk
