WE ARE NOT DEAD (YET)

Just a quick heads up for everyone, we’ve got two more episodes in the backlog and a planned recording some time this weekend. Had a rough start to the semester for our college kids and a rough start to fall for the rest of us.

Hang in there! We’ve got plenty-o-content incoming!

“Synthesizers, Yo!” Podcast: Episode 6

MP3 Audio [84 MB]DownloadShow URL Episode 6: “Synthesizers Were a Mistake” -Bob Moog Wowza, we’re actually not dead! Blame a combination of colleges and jobs and other fun things like studio re-arrangements and our general inability to actually structure time coherently. We dive into some (now very) old news, we faff around, we talk about […]

We’re not dead!

Just resting heh. School and work have taken over for much of the cast, and I’ve been in the middle of finishing a degree (finally) and also completely destroying and putting my entire studio back together. Oh boy.   Three episodes are currently in editing, with two about to go up, so stay tuned!   […]

“Synthesizers, Yo!” Podcast: Episode 5

This week (which may or may not be a week late) we discuss the return of Dylan, the unstoppable force known as GAS, controversies, flesh-colored cables, patents, and more! Cullen introduces his new album, as well as giving us an exclusive sneak-peak (or sneak-listen I suppose). We discuss the wonders and plunders of DIY synthesizers, from kits to arduinos to self-built circuitry and schematics. All this and more! And as always, we’re completely late on quite literally everything. Heh.

Music this week comes from Cullen and Dylan.

“Synthesizers, Yo!” Podcast: Episode 3

With heavy hearts we are sad to report the death knell of the new Minimoog Model D reissue. But! You can still get one if you’ve got the cash. A lotta cash.

In this week’s news we’ve got the Model D discontinuation, the Behringer Model D coming in low with a price drop and sound demos, as well as the appearance of the Octatrack MkII from Elektron! Quite a lot of hype coming down the line!

We join the gang with another thrilling episode of “God Why Are You Using Craiglist Learn To Use It Better,” this week featuring the Roland Volca Drum and the Golden Snare, as well as a throwback to our first clist episode. Why do people do this.

Discussing modular, we explore the new E352 from Synthesis Technology, as well as DIY racks and rails. Man, the RAST is cheap so go out and buy one. More faffing and general fun regarding Dylan’s return to the modular realm as well.

Finally, we discuss the oft overlooked additive forms of synthesis. Ranging from classics like the Hammond organs, to modern PCM-based sample addition, to the ultra cool Karplus method of string synthesis.

“Synthesizers, Yo!” Podcast: Episode 2

Another week, another episode. In this episode, we dive into deep sexy reverbs, manual filtering, DAWs, non-DAWs, legitimately acquired software, and much more!

In news, we cover the Roland/Studio Electronics SE-02 release (holy moly). That’s pretty much it, since this is more than any of us can handle.

The gang (plus very special guest and resident Korg Gadget wizard Erakion) talks DAWs and the lack thereof for everyone. Whether you’re into REAPER, FL Studio, Ableton, Cubase, MPCs, Electribes, etc, you’re good to go. Revolved goes into an in-depth analysis of his latest fantastic modular song/patch. We listen to even more synthy goodness from the Discord challenge, and generally faff around as we’re want to do.

Hello! I’m Dylan (quantumdylan), the owner of KSNTH Radio and proud co-host of the “Synthesizers, Yo!” podcast. A long time ago, I listened to Shoutcast radio listings straight from the directory in VLC while working on engineering homework. I thought to myself how incredibly cool it would be to host one of those radios, have […]
