Apex 9


davidryle

"Live recording of the modular. The challenge was to create three distinct parts to string together to make a musical journey.

The first section is centered on the Moog Subharmonicon and a few extraneous sequences controlled by a synthesizers.com Q119 step sequencer. The 24 bars passes through 3 segments with pitch transpose and discrete pad sounds.

The second section is isolated to a Mutable Instruments Rings and Delptronics drum patch with an STG PostLawsuit LPF with an Ian Fritz DDVCO swell.

The final third segment is two STG Soundlabs voltage sequencers with four vco's sourcing pitch voltages from a David Dixon ASR and run through a digital delay.

All these parts are managed by a sequential switch (synthesizers.com Q962) and a synthesizers.com Q960 step sequencer.
Other sequencers included the MI Marbles, INSTRUo harmonaig, Make Noise Pressure Points (x2), and Moon Modular 563 Trigger sequencer.

I just stood back and started the thing and then tweaked some levels. Pretty easy money for managing the robots and all..."

Novation Summit Versus ASM Hydrasynth - In Depth Discussion and Walkthrough (See description)


Major OSC

"Important Correction of Information: The Summit uses DIGITAL Envelopes, and DIGITAL LFO's. The Filter as well as the distortion unit are Analog. My apologies for the incorrect information.

A Special Presentation from Major Oscillator:
1 Hour of discussion comparing the Novation Summit and ASM Hydrasynth. What an incredible duo of polyphonic synthesizer bliss!
Spoiler: There's no winner in the end. But if you own one, and are interested in the other, this video might give you some valuable insight. Also I compare these 2 synthesizers to women. At the very least it's some synth related entertainment to keep you smiling while we're all stuck indoors. Stay healthy and happy. Check out http://www.majorosc.com for patches featured in the video.

Shortcuts times updated and now correct.

1:02:05 - Emails Received from Customers after the release of Ignition...

Greg Tripi - Composer -
"Really loving everything you’ve built in this release. A few of your sounds have already made it in to a film I am scoring. I even used one of the presets in a new Amazon series I’m doing with Cliff Martinez. We’re big fans of this sound."

Gerald Nahrgang -
"I am particularly surprised about the -bright piano- (025). Not that it sounds very authentic, but it feels very good to play."

MajorOSC Mayhem... Playing presets, talking a bit, make a few points, playing some more...
1:04:37 - PIANO - "Better than an old Casio Piano? F*** Yeah it is"

SUMMIT

1:16:30 - Lovely Keys
1:17:52 - Summit can get you movin' and groovin'
1:18:13 - Summit is sort of like a lush polysynth from the 80's with a modern touch.
1:21:50 - My favorite lead: Major Oscillator (that's right, I named a patch after me)
1:23:42 - Bored In Canada - A great Multi from Dave Spiers
1:25:04 - more of Deckard's Ride - what a pad!

1:25:28 - Which one sounds the best (to me)

THE FINAL WORD: If these 2 synthesizers were women...
1:25:56

Corrections:
At 22:55 I meant to say extra LFO, not envelope"

Roland Jupiter X Press Release VHS - Restored from Archive?


Major OSC

"A Note from the MajorOSC: This is pure satire right down to the Zen Core. But for the record, I love my Jupiter X. This video is to show appreciation to all the Roland customers who've kept them in business, despite the strong opinions constantly voiced from the older customers of many years. Jupiter X would not have become a reality had it not been for those of you who purchased the V-Synth. Jupiter 80, Jupiter 60, Juno G, D E, etc. Thanks to Roland for finally making something that celebrates your past, while offering modern functionality. Also, this is quite possibly the most amazing keybed ever."

Unboxing a Korg Arp 2600 FS (Full Size)

Unboxing my Korg Arp 2600 FS (Full Size), Part One: Unboxing

Voices of Echo

"In this video I'll unbox my new Korg Arp 2600 FS (Full Size) with you in real time. It took a really long time to ship, around 5 months from when I purchased it, but it finally got here! I've split the video into two parts: In part one I get the Korg Arp 2600 FS out of the box and walk you through my initial thoughts. In part two, I've recorded a high quality demo so that you can hear how it sound."

A little jam with my Arp 2600, TT 606, Juno 106, and an MS-1


"Here's a quickly recorded jam with my Arp 2600, TT 606, Juno 106, and and MS-1. Everything runs through my patch bays that you see on my desk. I used an Eventide Eclipse for delays and a cheapo TC Electronic box for its Living Room reverb, which I love. Feel free to ask any questions!"

Init Patch: Zoia with Data Corrupter


Inflatable Robot

"In this video I use the Zoia as a tool to modify the sound of a Data Corrupter, adding a dry mix, filter, and reverb. I also go over how to use Midi CC learn to add physical knobs to control some of the various parameters of the Zoia."

Aquifex - Moog Tower of Doom simple 1st demo


SynthAddict

"Quick, simple 1st demo of the Moog Mother-32, DFAM, and Subharmonicon I call the Tower of Doom. Running Mother -32 and Subharmonicon through 2 diff. algorithms of the Source Ventris. This rack has a lot of potential. :-)"

MATRIXSYNTH on the laptop.

The Calling


verstaerker

"a haunting soundscape created using mainly the ringmod of the EMS Synthi-A clone.
All sound sources as the subharmonicon, the model:cycles and my voice sent through the great sounding ringmod."

Kilpatrick Audio Phenol + CV breakout box & extra cables


via this auction

"Super fun Phenol in excellent condition. Well taken care of, kept clean and works perfectly.

Includes 19 banana plug cables, 24V power adapter and custom CV adapter box for banana to mini jack.

Factory box is in good share but will still be packed in another box for safe shipping."
