Calvin’s Six Delays

Six Delays in September from Calvin Cardioid on Vimeo.

From the great CL516 blog Calvin Cardioid shows off his Boss DD-3, Moog MF104SD, Eowave Spacebug, OTO Biscuit and more. I really liked this video. There’s something nice a zen about it.

“Six Delays in September… I’m just playing common synth patches in mono with one hand, while the other tweaks the pedals.” – cl516.blogspot.com

Omega 8 Drums


Omega 8 as a Drum Machine – Quick Behind the Scenes
from Calvin on Vimeo.

Calvin is showing off his great looking Studio Electronics Omega 8 analog polyphonic synth again. This time he teams his orange box up with a Culture Vulture valve distortion unit. For all his audio samples and a full run though of what he did head over to: http://cl516.blogspot.com/

“Well, long gone are my TR-909, TR-808, Machinedrum, Xbase09, MFB-502, and I haven’t picked up those D16 plugins yet. So I decided, why not use the Omega 8?” – cl516.blogspot.com

Yellow OMEGA 8 demo from Calvin Cardiod

Studio Electronics - Omega 8

The Studio Electronics Omega 8 is one of those pure analog synths that makes you go wow when you hear one in person. I spent a lot of time with an “O8″ at Schneiders Buero in Berlin. I think it’s up there with a real MiniMoog and Macbeth M5 as far as it’s “WANT!” factor.

“Sound: absolute dream. 8 discrete voices. Analog and fat, yet tight and precise and articulate. None of that “carelessly eating up too much sonic space” stuff. It gets to the point and delivers sonic oomph very efficiently. I’ve yet to perform the auto-tune on it so far. I give it enough time to warm up, and all 8 voices are well-behaved. Sounds alive.” – Calvin Cardioid

Calvin Cardioid has posted a very nice set up samples on his blog cl516 and over on his SoundCloud page.

I think the Calvin’s color choice is excellent. Check out more photos on his blog: http://cl516.blogspot.com/
