John Bowen and the Solaris at the PNW Synth Gathering 2010

YouTube via matrixsynth | July 26, 2010

"John Bowen goes over his Solaris synth at the Pacific Northwest Synthesizer Gathering 2010."

Note: I unfortunately arrived late and missed some of John's presentation. These and the upcoming videos for the event are meant to give those that could not make it, a sense of what the Pacific Northwest Synth Gathering was like. None of the presentations are scripted, at least I don't think they are. :) Just a group of like-minded individuals getting together to appreciate everything synth. More videos will follow. Many will be edited. Be sure to see the pnw2010 label below for more including pics of the event.

Dewanatron - Stirred, not shaken

YouTube via bigcitymusic | July 26, 2010

"Here is the incomparable Dewanatron Triple Slice eurorack module being modulated with the Kilpatrick K4815 Pattern Generator. We start out with the SINE VOLUME all the way down, then push it up full.

We are controlling the amount of STIR in the Triple Slice with the mod wheel on the Analogue Systems rs600 Performance Wheels module, which controls the amount of LFO. We start the video with no STIR, then add a little at slow and medium speed. The Triple Slice sounds beautiful straight, but really comes alive with a bit of STIR added!"

Roland D-50: replacing volume switch board. PT.1

YouTube via TheSynthFreq | July 24, 2010

"Hi. This is a short video of the process of replacing a volume switch board in the Roland D-50. On my D-50, the volume/bender board was faulty and would either cut out the sound altogether if I tried to change the volume, or it would crackle with any kind of volume change. So, my friend had found a "donor" D-50 volume switch board and since being replaced, it works perfectly, like a new synth. D-50 is a happy synth. :)
I am going to have to get used to being able to change the volume normally, not with the [patch edit] + [output volume], then [inc/dec] all the time. lol

(Please excuse my horrible explanations! ) lol

Please enjoy.
:) TSF"

Roland D-50: volume switch board replacement PT.2

"Hi. Here is part two of the D-50 volume/pitch bend board replacement.
This video is basic and just shows the keybed and main board already in place. I am finishing up the main board replacing and D-50 is almost completely back to its happy synthesizer self. lol :)"

Circuit bent Casio MT-240 w/ rebote delay and Guvnor built in

"Running a clean guitar into the keyboard at the start. No external effects to keyboard or guitar
Put a rebote delay with a few mods into a casio mt 240. Also put a guvnor clone in to add overdrive and tonal control. They are patchable so you can run external audio through it and can change the signal flow. Extra pitch control added, with lfo to modulate it. 15 bends added to glitch it out. Thanks to tonepad, whose rebote and guvnor was based on."
