oRigiNs – Cover Art Comparison 2001 vs 2018

maKo oRigiNs old coveroRigiNs - Remastered Cover 2018

As we approached the reissue of the oRigiNs album by maKo, we decided to take a look back at the cover art and compare it to the new reissued artwork and what it will look like upon its release in 2019.  We had originally scheduled this release for October of 2018, but decided to pull the album back for some last minute tweaks in the mastering and production.

Since this audio was recorded on audio cassette circa 1994 and then issued on CD in 2001, the master files needed some heavy duty reworking.  To bring you the best sound possible, we decided to push this one back and move forward with the new maKo single titled “griNd“, as well as the remastering of his previous EPs “aNgel” and it’s b-sides “fa113_n“. These reissues will release after the single and oRigiNs will follow thereafter.

Updated Release Timeline: maKo

December 2019 – griNd

January 2019 – aNgel EP

February 2019 – fa113_n (aNgel b-sides EP)

TBD Q1 2019 – oRigiNs

Time Lapse Build: Synthrotek DS-M

Synthrotek Drum Synth Module: DS-M Time Lapse Build

Play Video

We take on the Synthrotek Drum Synth Module otherwise known as the DS-M in our latest Eurorack Modular Build. The DS-M is a full featured drum synth that can emulate virtually any drum sound with a twist of a few knobs.  It is a complex, modifiable analog drum synth loosely based on the Coron DS-8 according to the Synthrotek website.  It a relatively moderate build with stand up resistors and intricate soldering points needed.  We recommend if you are new to soldering, to start out with something other then this.  

During our build, we made sure to double check each resistor prior to populating the board.  As usual, diodes and caps are directional based whereas the resistors are not.  This 8hp module packs a big punch just like its predecessor the DS-8.  Changes to the original DS-8 include the following:

  • VCA-like trigger input (more voltage = louder output)
  • Trimmer-adjustable attack
  • LED trigger indicator
  • 1v/o tracking (C0-C4)
  • Triangle core oscillator
  • Additional noise color switch setting (3 settings instead of 2)
  • More distinct noise timbres
  • Louder, improved noise circuit
  • Really LOW bass frequencies 
  • Total range ~4Hz to 2.6kHz

As well as being an amazing little drum synth, this module is also a fully functional monophonic synth that has the following features:

  • 1v/o tracking (C0-C4) 
  • Adjustable attack and decay envelope over the VCA 
  • Built-in LFO circuit
  • Sweep circuit
  • Noise circuit

You can plug in your CV or keyboard directly from your MIDI-2-CV converter and you are ready to go!  You can also use it stand alone as a monophonic synth if you choose to do so.  

DS-M Features:

  • Width: 8hp
  • Depth: 1.75″ (44mm)
  • Power connection: 10 Pin Keyed Eurorack
  • Current Draw: +12V: 20mA, -12V: 10mA (5V not used)

Hint:  The magic really happens when you connect 2x DS-M’s together….
