benges square waves


Published on May 28, 2017 zack dagoba

"six added Buchla 144 square waves, via the 191 filter in bandpass mode. And a thunderstorm. See http://myblogitsfullofstars.blogspot.... for more"

"I finally got the Buchla 144 clones built (thanks Mike & Ross). It was quite a journey from getting the boards made, getting the panel designed (including finding the right font) and manufactured / screen printed, to populating the panel and wiring everything up. Times three. And they look and sound superb..."

Custom Cream White Roland Juno-106 SN 454137


via this auction

The bender section reminds me of Gary Numan's Berserker blue on white look.

via the listing: "Purchased in October 2016 from SynthSpa - a US company who restore and customise vintage synthesisers, specialising in the Juno 106.

A phenomenal piece of gear. Used just a handful of times since purchasing. Selling as I unfortunately don't get as much time to use it as I would like.

Has had a full restoration in addition to the custom colour package which includes a new body colour, new wood sides, and new LEDs for the bender, screen, and 3mm lights. See SynthSpa.com for details."

Billy Currie of Ultravox's ARP Odyssey Sells for £8,500.00


via this auction

"This is the one Billy bought in 1977. He used it back in 2012 on the Ultravox "Brilliant" album so it is in good working order.
He used it on all the Ultravox gigs and recordings and the Visage recordings. He used his softer signature sound on Visage "Fade To Grey" and Ultravox "Vienna".
He also used this ARP while working with Tubeway Army/Gary Numan. Live and the recordings "Living Ornaments 79 ". Most notably using his strong, emotional signature sound for the " On Broadway " solo. It was used on the "Top of the Pops" theme when he played on Phil Lynotts solo album. This time with the ARP sequencer as well. A remixed instrumental version of the song " Yellow Pearl ".
This instrument has been heard very much! It is a part of music's Synthesiser History
It's the MK 2 version. The raunchy version!

Ultravox solos include :-

Man Who Dies Every Day
Artificial Life
Slow Motion
Quiet Man
Sleepwalk
The Thin Wall
Hymn
When the Scream Subsides"

Ensoniq EPS 16 Plus Rack


via this auction

"Here's a classic 90's sampler.. The precursor to the ASR series.. the legendary EPS16 Plus. This one is in FULL working condition... yes the disk drive is solid.. it was replaced with a NOS Ensoniq floppy drive last year ensuring years of use to come. Sample anything into this machine and its gold. Punchy, gritty, sweet tones abound. Plugs ins still don't do what this baby can do in the sound dept."

Pinged Evolution


Published on May 28, 2017 Worwell

"Possum Electo-Music Evolution pinged by Maths EOC pulse, Maths envelope modulating Genus ("# of poles) with Control Forge pitch CV. With Echophon/Planar tomfoolery at 3:25."

Love how Rossum's new modules have the vintage E-Mu look to them - the knobs and blue on off-white gray.
