Roland HS-60 SN 594265


via this auction

"This here is my HS-60, same synth as the Juno 106, but with built-in speakers.

It's basically a portable Juno 106 that can be played anywhere.
There is a Stereo MIX IN, so you can play along with other sources of music through the internal speakers, if that's your thing. If you want to record, and don't want to hear the speakers, just plug a 1/4 inch plug in to the headphone jack, to bypass them.

This synth has been professionally repaired. All the voice chips have been reconditioned and refurbished. The 2-prong power plug has been professionally converted to a 3-prong IEC power cable, and a Chorus input modification has been done so that you can run other synths and Audio sources through the lush, analog Chorus. All the repairs, reconditions and modifications have been done professionally by Rosen Sound, up in Burbank, CA.

Included with this HS-60 is a hard case, and an IEC power cable."

Electro Harmonix SYNTH9


Published on Apr 11, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The SYNTH9, from Electro-Harmonix, is a new type of guitar synthesizer. Without the complex implementation of MIDI guitars or special six-channel pickups, the SYNTH9 can produce classic synthesizer tones right out of your guitar. There are 9 presets emulating many of the classic synthesizers of the 60s and 70s, giving you tones from all the classic rock and psychedelic bands and more. With only a few controls, it is quick and intuitive to dial in the perfect sound. The SYNTH9 is recommended to be placed at the beginning of one's pedal board, due to the unique tracking capabilities. For even more space rock type effects, delays and reverbs after the Synth9 take you to interstallar distances."

Roland Releases Anthology 1990 Cloud Synth


"Classic. Beloved. Nostalgic. Popular. Recognizable. Great sounding.

All of these words have been used to describe the hardware synthesizer counterpart that served as the foundation for our latest software instrument, Anthology 1990. 1990 saw Roland Corporation release a spiritual successor to their very popular release in 1987 and we decided to follow suit following the release of Anthology 1987. We've captured the classic sounds of 1990 and have added them to the Anthology line-up whilst taking the utmost care to preserve the original tonal and sonic qualities that made this instrument great years ago.

Sonic Joy

One of primary drivers behind why we love this synthesizer is the warmth and presence found in each and every patch. Contained herein you'll find breathy flutes, luscious layered voices and big, beefy basses. From the expressive "Grandioso" piano to the immediately recognizable from 90's ambient music "Shak-Filt", these 64 deep sampled patches deep sampled from the original 64 patches are sure to delight.

Simply Accessible

As with all instruments in the Anthology series, you'll find an intuitive and inviting experience in Anthology 1990. Simply launch your DAW, load the instrument and immediately start creating. Whether it's in your home studio or on a laptop on stage from the beach in Ibiza, all Anthology instruments carry the Anthology promise: ready to go with low system overhead and high quality.

FEATURES

Ultra-Deep Sampled replica of its legendary counterpart from 1990
64 patches
4 velocity layers per note
ADSR resonant filter for lush sustains and harmonic decays
Multiple instruments supported per plug in instance
Advanced multi-threaded loading and streaming for fast and smooth workflow
Multiple instruments supported on separate MIDI channels
VST and AU compatible
So Many Superlatives"

Moog: Sonic Origins | The Haxan Cloak


Published on Apr 11, 2017 Moog Music Inc

"Bobby Krlic approaches music and composition from a place of primal perception. Performing under the name "The Haxan Cloak", Krlic crafts haunting soundscapes by harnessing the power of shifting air molecules into brooding, undulating waveshapes.

Shortly after co-producing Goldfrapp’s Silver Eye, the British synth mystic takes us into his Los Angeles home studio and weaves new aural patterns into a track called “Transposition #4”. During breaks on his balcony, he reflects on the sonic origins that have shaped his artistic identity, “the golden thing” that makes the goosebumps come, and the amniotic bliss of low frequency sounds. Watch the video for an intimate perspective on one synthesist's roots and process.

Sonic Origins is a series that unearths the elements of artist identity. Watch the first installment, featuring Russell E. L. Butler [posted here]

"50% OFF Release Offer! 2 weeks.

The modern, polyphonic string synthesiser was invented in 1970 by Ken Freeman, a British keyboard player and engineer who discovered that if you layered two notes then detuned and slightly modulated one a pleasant ‘chorused’ sound resulted. Over the next 10+ years Ken’s initial discovery spawned an industry that saw the manufacture of more than one hundred ‘string machines’ and multi-keyboards.

Although viewed by some as a one-trick-pony or a poor man’s polysynth, string machines had so much character they’ve graced tracks by artists as diverse as; Lonnie Liston Smith, Air, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Parliament, Herbie Hancock, Camel, Joy Division, Jean-Michel Jarre, Thomas Dolby, Tonto’s Expanding Head Band, Genesis, Toni Tone Tony and countless others.

Product details
Based on our award winning Virtual String Machine (VSM), RE-STRINGS comprises 67 individual sample sets from a plethora of classic analogue string ensembles including the ultra rare (and first) Freeman String Symphonizer, the highly coveted Solina, the eminently desirable Eminent 310, the highly-lauded Logan String Ensemble, plus several other classic (and not so classic) string machines.

Each sample set spans 49 notes (4 octaves), each individually sampled and looped, plus RE-STRINGS contains a 700+ patch library created by respected patch designers including legendary string machine user and keyboard maestro, Billy Currie.

With Dual Layer capabilities - each layer comprising of a Lowpass, Bandpass & Highpass Resonant Filter Section, Two Envelope Generators, Pitch or Filter LFO, Dynamic control including filter aftertouch - if you want to create your own hitherto unrealised hybrid combinations of classic and evocative string ensembles, it’s a cinch. Finally, global vintage style Ensemble & Phaser effects are provided, allowing you to hone your sound to evocative, retro, string ensemble perfection.

RE-STRINGS includes string tones from the following classic instruments ARP Quadra (1978) Crumar Multiman (1975) Elka Rhapsody (1975) Eminent 310 (1972) Freeman String Symphonizer (1973) Godwin Model 749 String Concert (1980) Hohner K4 (1977) Junost 21 (c 1986) Korg Lambda (1979) Korg PE2000 (1976) Logan String Melody II (1977) Mellotron (1963) Moog Opus III (1980) Roland VP330 (1979) Solina String Ensemble (1974) Technics KN200 (1982) Yamaha CE-25 (1983) Yamaha SS30 (1977)"

Hawkeye - Going Up (MFB Dominion 1, Kurzweil K2000, Virus C Vocoder)


Published on Apr 11, 2017 Maelstroem3

"Dawless vocoding! :-)

We experienced an incredible evolution of speech synthesis over the last decades - the voice used in this track was artificially generated by an online text to speech tool, sampled by the E-MU E6400 Ultra and was then transformed by the vocoder of the Access Virus C. You can hear the original synthesized voice at the end of the track.

Big thanks to my YouTube friend "oscillator", who sent me his great Kurzweil K2000 patches, the patch starting at 03:05 is pure Kurzweil bliss from his patch bank! He also helped me to upgrade my old K2000 to modern standards. It is a fantastic synth!
Here is his channel:

Gear used (in order of appearance):
00:00 Kurzweil K2000 piano (a classic)
00:13 Moog Little Phatty Bassline through Polivoks DIY VCF
00:26 Elektron Machinedrum Drums
00:40 Mutable Instruments Anushri Chip Arpeggio
01:13 MFB Dominion I - dirty bassline :-)
01:15 Dave Smith Evolver - growling, evolving bassline
01:39 Vocoder voice (E-MU 6400 Ultra - Access Virus C Vocoder)
02:05 MFB Dominion I - lead in paraphonic mode
03:05 Kurzweil K2000 "Solo" - Patch from oscillator, THANKS! :-)
04:17 Alesis Andromeda - arpeggiated happy poly string

FX: Strymon Timeline and BigSky, DIY Polivoks VCF

All was sequenced live using the fantastic MIDIbox Sequencer (v4), the synth outputs went directly into a 16-channel Mackie 1604 for analog mixing - the master output of the mixer was captured using a Tascam DR-100 wave recoder - no DAW was abused during recording, only slight audio compression was added during video editing.

Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for watching and listening!

ALM - Akemie's Castle *Generative Noise*


Published on Apr 11, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's the awesome Akemie's Castle from ALM Busy Circuits. It's a 4 operator FM oscillator power house! Based on the original NOS Yamaha FM chips you've got different operator algorithms all four operator controls exposed and loads of hands (or CV heavy) manipulation. This patch is just a generative noise jam but you get a good idea of the range of tones it can create in that field."

Waldorf Quantum - Musikmesse 2017


Published on Apr 11, 2017 Sound On Sound magazine

"8-Voice Analog/Digital Hybrid Polyphonic Synthesizer"

Update: some key points from the video captured by Soviet Space Child and a couple of feature suggestions:

1) the digital processing section can be put pre or post analog filter, this is huge for me.

2) the analog filters are lowpass only.

3) the oscillators are freely routable between the analog filters, digital processing section, or can bypass them all together and go straight to the VCA. This adds a lot of flexibility to the synth, in that a single patch effectively becomes a 3 timbre synthesizer, with each oscillator comprising of its own timbre. In theory, one oscillator can go to the analog filters, another can go to the digital processing section, a third can go straight to the amp section. This, combined with the various oscillator types, makes the Quantum an incredibly flexible synthesizer. Now, with all that taken into consideration, add the split/layering mode and you have yourself a party.

4) FM is not yet decided upon, bummer. Here's hoping for linear FM between the oscillators.

5) You can analyze audio files and convert them into wavetables (!!!)

5) 40(!!!) modulation slots.

Suggestions:

1) Addition of linear FM
2) Internal resampling for the wavetable and granular/sample oscillators would be great.
