1. Polivoks Pro (reissue of legendary Soviet synth) solo sequence - Rusko je stav duše
"For your maximum enjoyment, please use good headphones or good speakers with subwoofer(s).

Polivoks Pro is a reissue of legendary Soviet synth from 1980s that's been approved by the one and only Vladimir Kuzmin designer of the original Polivoks. No matter which century we are currently in, the Russia has always been a state of mind. As much as I hate Putin and everything he represents, I also deeply love and admire Russian arts and culture, Russian modus vivendi and sounds coming from Russia. Please check also the fabulous documentary on Russian synths and synth scene called Electro Moskva by Elena Tikhonova & Dominik Spritzendorfer.

This video is part of my longer dawless synth jam. It's a longer moment when there was no other synth playing except of the Polivoks Pro, although at the very beginning you may also hear a little bit of Sem Pro by Tom Oberheim.

The Polivoks is sequenced by Cirklon hardware sequencer, various parameters are tweaked in real time almost always bringing rather surprising and interesting results. Polivoks is processed through vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay and Strymon Big Sky for reverb. It was recorded live in one take only, stereo output from my Motu interface into Ableton Live. Camera is GoPro Hero 4 Black, video was edited in Final Cut."

2. Polivoks Pro and Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro sequencing #1
"Excerpt from my dawless synth jam with two modern reissues of two classic synths. Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro playing bass ostinato with random high notes and Polivoks Pro doing its screeching sounds or as my girlfriend says: crying about Russia ;). Both synths are controlled by Cirklon hardware sequencer via midi and processed through vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay and Strymon Big Sky for delay.

Recorded live, stereo output from my Motu interface into Ableton Live, camera was GoPro Hero in my right hand, video was edited in Final Cut.

I had so much fun during this jam :D"

3. Polivoks Pro and Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro Sequencing #2
"Another and this time shorter excerpt from my dawless synth jam with two modern reissues of two classic synths. Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro playing bass ostinato with random high notes and Polivoks Pro doing its screeching sounds or as my girlfriend says: crying about Russia ;). Negative envelope is applied on Oberheim's filter and you may also see some rather drastic changes to LFO settings and destinations on the Polivoks.

Both synths are controlled by Cirklon hardware sequencer via midi and processed through vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay and Strymon Big Sky for delay.

Recorded live, stereo output from my Motu interface into Ableton Live, camera was GoPro Hero in my right hand, video was edited in Final Cut.

I had so much fun during this jam :D"

4. Polivoks Pro and Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro Sequencing - Complete Session
"This was my first encounter with Polivoks Pro - reissue of legendary Soviet synth. Just by accident there was another modern reissue of classic synthesizer - Tom Oberheim's Sem Pro - on the table next to the Polivoks, so I started to jam with both them. For the first three and half minutes you here Polivoks only, then Oberheim kicks in and both synths play together for about 8 minutes, last 7 minutes of the video is solo Polivoks again.

Both synths are controlled by analogue hardware sequencer Cirklon via midi. Polivoks' sequence is 100% random until the last one or two minutes, when it gets certain regularities. Low notes on Oberheim is a regular sequence in so called "pendulum" mode, several random parameters are applied to high notes played by Oberheim, though.

Both synths are processed through vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay and Strymon Big Sky for delay.

Recorded live, stereo output from my Motu interface into Ableton Live aka dawless synth jam, camera was GoPro Hero in my right hand, video was edited in Final Cut.

I had so much fun during this jam :D"
