A Complete Guide to Korg Opsix FM Synthesizer

 

XNB latest video could not be more perfectly timed, offering a complete guide Korg Opsix FM synthesizer, which Korg USA earlier last week put on sale for the blow-out price of $329, 69% off the original list price.

 

The video is not intended to be a review, but a complete, in-depth guide to the Korg Opsix.

 

What XNB say about the video:

 

“I tried to cover almost everything about the synth on one single video, so I don’t block your learning by releasing part in different days. That’s why is a bit long, but everything was recorded in sections, so you can watch it as a course. You can navigate the timeline or click the chapters to see what you want.

Chilled Dawless Synth Jam with Elektron Digitakt, Waldorf Blofeld, Dreadbox Typhon and Novation Circuit Tracks

 

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via French synthesist and producer Guillaume Blanjean (Atlas Castle), captures a live, chilled dawless synth jam, featuring Elektron Digitakt, Waldorf Blofeld, Dreadbox Typhon and Novation Circuit Tracks.

 

Guillaume Blanjean uses the Digitakt as the ‘brain’ of his system, which looks like it is about to be overgrown the greenery that masks his system’s cabling. His system is pretty compact, but makes effective use of some affordable, but powerful, gears.

Blanjean created this performance as part of a hardware jams challenge, which was to create a jam involving repeating elements, inspired by this quote from Rudolf Steiner, “One can ascend to a higher development, only by bringing rhythm and repetition into one’s life.”

Pigtronix GLOAMER Analog Polyphonic Amplitude Synthesizer

 

Pigtronix has introduced Gloamer, a new analog, polyphonic amplitude synthesizer that alters the attack and decay time of any sound source, without sacrificing the fidelity of the original tone.

 

Gloamer attack function provides a pick-triggered volume swell: a cinematic “slow gear” effect that is smooth and controllable with variable timing from extremely fast to very slow. The volume swell cycle can be reset at any moment by muting, allowing players to craft bowed string-like lines and chords with ease.

 

And Gloamer features a powerful optical compressor that can add subtle punch or extreme sustain, helping to maintain a smooth volume swell effect even with very long attack times. A Volume knob controls loudness at the peak of the attack cycle, while a master Blend control allows players to layer an uncompressed clean sound in with the volume swell effect.

Additionally, when activated, the Decay function causes notes to fade out once the attack cycle is complete. When the decay cycle is completed, an auto-reset function causes the attack to begin again immediately, as long as there is audio input. This allows you to create a wide range of undulating, asymmetrical tremolos at slower settings as well as pulsating stutter effects when using faster attack and decay times.
