AJH Synth-VCO MINIMOD & GEMINI 2412 Filter -Techno eurorack demo (no talking)

Published on Feb 20, 2019 Dziam Bass

"I'm still in the excitement phase of this oscillator and filter from AJHSynth.
I use only one VCO here and the sound is really strong.
In this movie, I used PWM to change the sound movement that perfectly fits the Techno style.
I have no doubt about having another VCO Mini MOD (Vintage Transistor Core VCO) or even 3 for a very thick and well-known early Minimoog sound that AJH plays very well.
I think with the best proof of how great it sounds is this movie, only one VCO plus a Gemini 2412 filter based on SEM. for me this is awesome analog sound!!!quite a talk, turn on play.😃"

Frap Tools Falistri & Instruo CS-L West Coast Eurorack Setup

Published on Feb 20, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"This eurorack setup is full of West Coast Serge and Buchla inspired modules. Frap Tools Falistri is a dual function generator that can be used as envelopes, oscillators, slews and more. It also includes a VCA/ring modulator. The second half of the video shows the Falistri as a dual oscillator and ring modulator.

The oscillator is the Instruo CS-L complex oscillator which is a dual oscillator with tons of modulation and wave-folding options built in for both oscillators. We used a Random Source Seq8 XL for sequencing.

Instruo CS-L available here:

Frap Tools Falistri available here:"

Stereo Poly-Expressive Ambient Music (w/ Linnstrument + MicroMonsta + Bastl Thyme) #TTNM

Published on Feb 20, 2019 The Tuesday Night Machines

"Three takes of polyphonic, expressive ambient music fun with the Linnstrument and friends. MORE INFO BELOW :)


PixelNoises Synth T-Shirts by The Tuesday Night Machines:


Audio gear used:
- Roger Linn Design Linnstrument MPE MIDI Controller
- Audiothingies MicroMonsta MPE Synthesizer
- Bastl Instruments Thyme Digital Tape Delay Simulator

The greenish, middle MicroMonsta patch uses aftertouch to control the filter cutoff frequency of the sound all the way from zero, so by gentle pressing a key, one can smoothly fade the sound in and out. The timbre/Y axis adds ring modulation which makes it very crunchy and wild at times, together with the internal chorus FX.

The pinkish and orange patches are panned to the left and right a little bit respectively and only subtly use expressive controls apart from the obvious polyphonic pitch slides.

The Bastl Thyme adds delay and roominess to the sounds."

Yamaha FS1r Formant Shaping FM Synthesizer OZ01198

via this auction

"This is the best digital/FM synth Yamaha ever made. Comes with US power cord. This FS1R has the latest/last OS/firmware 1.20 installed."

Is it? The Montage has the 8-Op FM engine like the FS1r, but does it have the fseqs and formant synth engine?
