Hi,
probably i haven't looked well enough but there seems to be a scarcity of samples produced by GCS devices around.

anyone here care to share some of the sounds of their CGS modules?

be well

Agreed - that would be cool! I only know of this thread:
http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-26814.html
(Clip of the gated comparator).

How about a sticky serving as a sort of sound-demo library of CGS modules?
With some of the more exotic modules, it can be hard imagine what they can sound like...

I can post a sample of the Synthacon filter, and others later...

yes, finding audio demonstrations of his designs can be tough
the easiest thing i think is to look at some websites that sell premade cgs modules like metalbox or bridechamber

Shall I make this one sticky?

Why not? Very Happy

Ok, I have a proposition:
Posts containing soundclips should be easy to pick out from the rest (the rest being "nice sounds man", or "you need more attenuverters on that, dood" etc). Something like this:

Samples - CGS 666 Dystopian Discombobulator Demo
Yadayadayada (description)
Soundfile here
Yadayadayada (selfpraise, thanks to Ken, etc)

A heading in bold at the top of the post for easy ID of the module sampled and then a description and download link.
No page-long novellas - just the goods at the top.

Edit:
If the heading is done like the one above, it should be easily searchable through a webbrowsers searchfunction.

How about it?

Hmm...how about those "meta's" they have over at prodigy-pro forums?
Like this: http://www.prodigy-pro.com/forum/topic-2665.html

Very easy to see what's there, instead of searching/wading through pages of posts to find something...

Ah well - a sticky will do for now, won't it?

Ok, it's sticky now. May I suggest to use a keyword, something like (sample) or something, such that you can use your browser's search function. Will look into the meta link now.

Edit: looked at it, it's a manual thing I see .. the owner of the first post in the thread could be appointed as a volunteer I guess Laughing

Pheew..that's not me! Razz

But seriously: Let's do the sticky for now. Thanks Jan!

Edit: Awright, I changed the heading in my post above.

This should definitely be a sticky!

I've got a contribution for the CGS29 Wavemutliplier

http://zthee.vantage.ch/wavemultiplier.mp3

It's a Korg MS-10 Triangle LFO out to Wavemultiplier in and then back to the MS-10s Pitch in. All the tweaking is done on the wavemultiplier.

I know the wavemultiplier is probably the most common of the CGS modules??

But the more examples we can gather the better!

I can do some synthacon aswell.

http://zthee.vantage.ch/synthacon.mp3

It's a MicroMoog feed into the filter. First the LP, then the BP and then the HP. With some manual sweeping.

It's probably not the worlds best samples..

Much'n many thank yous for making this a sticky, Jan! Very Happy Once I'm back and set up my older computer in the electronics shop again, I'll start making samples of my CGS stuff to gives ideas of things. Smile

How about one for Ray Wilson's stuff? (Though - he hasn't nearly the variety that Ken does - he still will have his own 'sound'. No?? )

...in the meantime i've found the best source for CGS builds samples is the metalbox webbie

Few samples under my "BJ modular" videos. Check the descriptions for the ones used.

good idea Synthmonger

my YouTube vids are mostly CGS gear - anything with Pinky in it and 'blurt'.

Actually they are numitrons - operate on about 3V (rather than 170V for nixies). but they look just like nixies....from a distance Smile
They are hooked up to the CGS wavetable to indicate banks and waves.

good numitron page - http://www.tube-tester.com/sites/nixie/different/x2000/x2000.htm

remembered some of the soundfiles on my homepage are using CGS designs

wavetable -

and
http://www.sdiy.org/pinky/01%20Track%201.mp3

sub-oscillator -

drum processed by a CGS simple wavefolder, plus a Farm VCO plugged into a CGS wave multiplier -

Figured I'd post this here to!

CGS29 and CGS67.mp3

First it's the folder section of the wavemultiplier.
First turning up folds, then offset.
Then turning down folds then offset.
Then modulation the folds and offset.

Then at 02.45 it's the Lockart wavefolder.
Just fiddling the knobs.

Then at 02.58 it's the Grinder.
I'm adjusting the tune of the DSG I'm using as oscillator, hence the changing in tone. I'm not sure if my grinder works as it should. It doesn't seem to do as much as I thought?

Then at 03.58 it's the CGS67 ringmodulator - and I can just say OMG! I didn't think it was that powerfull!
I start modulation the carrier after a while. Well you'll hear it..

gated comparator/mixer demo
This is the GC being used as a sequencer -
not really a track, just set up a CGS dual LFO to run the GC. outputs of the GC go into a CGS DC mixer, output of the mixer to a CGS VCO. One tri out to a waveshaper, other to a Jim Patchell vocal filter.
the synth is left to its own devices until about 1:35 where I tweak the LFO settings a bit, in the last few seconds a feedback loop via a spring reverb gets inserted but its more noisy than nice....

Infinite Melody

CGS Infinite melody demo (3.03Mb 3:03)
CGS 1/f melody, clocks and CV from CGS dual LFO, output to CGS VCO, VCO tri out to CGS Wave Multiplier, then thru spring reverb purloined from a dead organ (well, it was dead once I had finished with it).

This rocks! Did you install the diatonic converter to the infinite melody? Or is it just the 1/f

andrewF,
thanks for the CGS '73 filter demo, I'm glad I ordered a board now! Did you put the switch for the low frequency mode, ala VCFX? If so, any chance of a demo using this, I'm intrigued what this can do Smile

here's a couple on soundcloud
1st is based on the CGS Serge73 VCF being modulated by a CGS DSG
dusg-vcf73

2nd is more complex but again uses CGS Serge 73VCF, CGS cmos dual VCF, CGS utility envelope generators do the modulating (These are totally fantastic EGs with ATT retrigger)
Also has my SDcard player and some PT2399 and zeitgeist delays.

demo #2 - LOT
