BugBrand Demos
A track from the 3frame setup documented here at the MW forum - direct MP3 link here

Plenty of recordings from 2009 and 2010 given at the BugBlog here (under the mp3 label)

Overview: A long, live take showing the (?) variety of fast changing sounds possible - if you disregard the Sine-kick that comes in halfway through, then the total modules fit into a 1-rack system

MP3 File: Take the Wobble

Overview: Touch control, two envelopes and two VCOs feeding back into one another. This was great fun to play, tapping and pressing on the touch panel and shifting the Env's Attack and Decay settings. It reminded me of sounds from Nobukazu Takemura's 'Scope' album (one thing that got me into weird electronic sounds)

MP3 File: On a grey saturday come warm sines

Overview: Five short ringtone MP3s using sounds of the SYN1 Weevil. (Back when I went through a period on the dole, I had a New Deal advisor who suggested I should make money from selling my 'weird sounds' as ringtones - true fact!)
Patch using: SYN1 + diverse

MP3 File:  Jan09_2_DualLineSine

Overview: Control feedback on the Weevil - using a DD2 mixer to feed Osc outputs back around for chaotic instability. An individual out of the Weevil also pulses the control input of the Low Pass Gate.

BetaTests: R.Quirk demos

Overview: One of the beta-testers, Richard Quirk, tried out modules from Wiard and Metalbox in these recordings influenced by the sounds of Warner Jepson and his Buchla 100 tracks. In the 4th sample you can hear the sound of the PRC1 PT Delay when around maximum delay time - real digital crunk.
