Synth Shorts - Access Virus B - Fat Pad & Analog Trance Dreams

video upload by Eyezer Productionz Sound Design

"A fat pad I made with Access Virus B via DSP56300 emulator. This pad is somewhat of a re-creation of the Paradise Pad that can be found in some of my Adam Szabo Viper soundbanks.

FX used: Valhalla Room, Valhalla Delay, Fruity 7 Band EQ, Virus B Phaser & Chorus."

Synth Shorts - Access Virus B - Analog Trance Dreams

"This is a patch I made on the Access Virus TI, but I used the DSP56300 emulator to play this patch with the Access Virus B instead. This patch combines the trancy sound of the Virus with the lush sound of an Oberheim synthesizer.

FX used.: Valhalla Room, Valhalla Delay, Fruity 7 Band EQ.
Midi used: Gouryella - Ligaya"

Instrumental Innovators DVD Featuring Dave Smith, Roger Linn, and Tom Oberheim

via this auction

I believe this was released back in 2007 based on this post. Description from that post:

"Dave Smith founded Sequential Circuits in the mid-70s, and in 1977 he designed the Prohet-5 - the world's first microprocessor-based musical instrument and first completely programmable and polyphonic synth, which set the standard for all synth designs that have followed. In the last few years Dave has returned to the hardware instruments with the Evolver and Poly Evolver synths, which combine real analog electronics with digital processing to create yet another new world of unique instruments. This DVD includes a 90 minute complete history of Dave Smith from Prophet to MIDI to the PolyEvolver and roundtable discussion with Dave Smith, Roger Linn and Tom Oberheim."

Fully Featured Analog Wave Folder: Athru

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) shares an overview and demo of the Instruo Athru, a fully featured analog wave folder module for eurorack.

Learn more about hte Instruo Athru here:

The result of an ongoing process of evolution, starting out as a derivative of the west coast timbre circuit, the wavefolders in the Instruō system have been tweaked and adapted with each incarnation. athrú is the latest incarnation of this series of Instruō wavefolders, in a stand alone package.

Plug in any audio signal and discover what wonders wavefolders are capable of; from subtle boosts in harmonics to full on spectral devastation. CV control over depth via an exponential response VCA, summing with a scalable symmetry offset offers exceptional control over timbral and dynamic changes of the incoming signal.

Alesis Andromeda Sounds - Part 1 - Most powerful polysynth ever?

video upload by Friendly Noise

"Introduced in 2000, the Alesis A6 Andromeda was a real miracle in a music world without modern analog polysynths. All big polyphonic names were no longer in production and only available in the used or vintage market. Some loved the Andromeda, some hated it, most simply didn’t come to know it because of the Alesis name and the lack of music hits featuring this powerful polysynth. The Andromeda can be described equally as a polyphonic instrument and as a polyphonic modular synthesizer. That´s how complex or deep it can be.

The sounds are illustrated with pictures of my own Andromeda. There is no video, because those are old recordings, made long time ago before I started recording videos. The purpose of the recordings was exclusively for personal use, a way to remember sounds I liked. Some recordings may still be useful today in order to get familiar with the sound of the instruments. Some sounds use the internal effects, some use external processing.

Video sections:

00:32 Andromeda pad, modular sequence.
01:14 Andromeda pad, modular sequence.
02:26 Waldorf Q pad, Andromeda lead.
03:52 Waldorf Q pad, 3 different Andromeda sounds.
05:12 Andromeda pad and bell.
06:12 Sounds with self oscillation.
08:43 Cinematic pads.
11:40 Crossmodulation.
12:49 Pad with external flanger.
13:49 Effects and drums.
17:56 Pad and lead."

Roland JP-8080 Editor and Librarian for Patch Base

via Coffeeshopped where you can find the editor.

The JP-8080 editor in Patch Base brings all the settings for a full JP-8080 Performance with its 2 Patches into a single editor. You can quickly see the overview of the settings for the Upper and Lower Patches as well as the Velocity and Control Morphing settings for every parameter.

The Upper and Lower tabs each show you a full patch on a single screen. Although the JP-8080 is wonderful for hands-on control, when you load a saved patch you don't really know what any of the settings are on the synth itself. Patch Base makes this easy. You can also copy and paste the Filter and Amp envelopes as well as Randomize or Initialize each individual patch. Individual patches can be saved and loaded, as well as entire Performances, all from one editor.

The Voice Mod tab shows you all of the Voice Mod settings in one place, making it easy to create your own custom patches without any menu diving.

The 2-Up tab shows the most important controls of the Upper and Lower patches side-by-side, for when you're creating Performances that use both patches on the same channel, and you want to compare settings between patches, or quickly copy/paste between patches.
