The latest title in the KORG DS-10 series, now available for the iPhone!

The KORG DS-10 series was an enormous hit for the Nintendo DS. Now, seven years later, it has undergone a further evolution while staying true to its original spirit. Now available is the KORG iDS-10, a portable synthesizer studio for iPhone.

The KORG iDS-10 combines a cutting-edge analog synthesizer, voice synthesizer, and analog drum machine inspired by motifs from the original KORG DS-10. This iPhone app gives you a hand-held system to easily create electronic music, which requires persuasive sound with a minimal number of notes.

*** Powerful analog synthesizer lets you visually learn sound design ***
The analog synthesizer provides carefully selected parameters, making it easy to enjoy sound design. The unique patching function also lets you create sound in even deeper ways. Since all parameters can be automated, you have a wide range of song-production possibilities. Each synthesizer provides five types of effect with an oscilloscope that helps you see the sound. This cutting-edge synth engine takes full advantage of the iPhone’s CPU to generate astonishing sound, and will heighten your enjoyment using the KORG DS-10.

*** Enter your lyrics, and the voice synthesizer turns them into a voice ***
The voice synthesizer is one of the popular features of the KORG iDS-10. Based on a vocoder, its engine makes it easy to generate voices. It also supports input via a microphone which can be used as a conventional vocoder. The parameters are optimized for creating such voices, so you’ll be able to enjoy sound design with a different character than an analog synthesizer, further widening the possibilities for your music.

*** Analog drum synthesizer makes it easy to produce the sounds that you want ***
Drums are now more important than ever, and the iDS-10 provides an analog drum machine that’s carefully tuned for easy creation of powerful sounds. With total control over six drum sounds (kick, snare, hihat1 / ihat2, tom, and percussion), you can create awesome tracks with high impact.

*** Smart keyboard and KAOSS mode make step-recording enjoyable ***
The smart keyboard lets you specify a scale so that you can step-record without worrying about “wrong” notes. And of course there’s also KAOSS mode, where you can produce a limitless range of great-sounding phrases, with just a touch of the keyboard. The scale setting is also applied to the sequencer’s note display, so you can enjoy producing songs whether or not you have any musical knowledge or experience.

*** Pattern play that you can perform in real time ***
The pattern play capability of the KORG DS10 has further evolved, generating amazing user performances. You can seamlessly play 32 patterns, and also manipulate track mute and solo settings in real time. It’s guaranteed to result in the kind of protean acts that are notable in modern day DJ performances.

*** Send your songs by email for collaborative music productions ***
There’s a function that allows the transfer of song data via email, making it easy to exchange songs with your friends.

*** Mystery bingo!? ***
And then there’s the enigmatic mystery bingo; as you continue enjoying the KORG iDS-10, the full picture will become clearer …

This app was produced in cooperation with the game music and app production company 'Detune.' Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the world of the KORG iDS-10 that resulted from this collaboration with Detune Inc.

The first title in the KORG DS-10 series was the KORG DS-10 which was announced in 2008. The second title was the KORG DS-10 PLUS which launched in 2009.

Korg SQ-10 Analog Step Sequencer SN 151539

via this auction

"Korg SQ-10 analog step sequencer in excellent condition. Works perfectly and cosmetically very nice. Please see photos. A very good old-school sequencer from Korg. Designed for the MS series synthesizers and using Korg's CV / Gate control the SQ-10 sequencer can really surprise you with some groovy basslines. Three channel output allows pitch, tone color and timing variation. Use the knobs to adjust and build up a sequence. Sure it's limited to 12 steps (with a max of 24) but when you hook that up to your MS-10, MS-20 or MS-50 you can get some pretty cool TB-303 like stuff happening. Because the SQ-10 outputs CV (Control Voltage) it can also be connected to the Oscillators, VCF (filter) or LFO's of your MS synths for even cooler tricks. Using a CV / Gate converter allows you to use the SQ-10 with other Roland, Moog, Sequential and even MIDI synthesizers. It's definitely a fun instrument which allows you to program basslines just like they did back in the early days! Also please note this has a non-American style plug and runs on 220V. I will include a plug adapter to fit American outlets (see photo) but you will need a step down transformer - like these Check my other listings for more gear I'm selling off in anticipation of tax day."

ROLAND OP-8 CV Interface

via this auction

"Roland OP-8 CV Interface, very good condition. Works perfectly. Some minor cosmetic wear but no dents. Also please note this has a China/Australia style plug and runs on 220V. I will include a plug adapter to fit American outlets (see photo) but you will need a step down transformer - like these The rare and hard to find DCB cable is included. The OP-8 is the interface making it possible to control the Juno-60 or Jupiter-8 by the MC-4 or MC-8. Although the OP8 were made to connect with the MC4 and or Juno 60 / Jupiter 8, it will accept a 1 volt per octave signal from any synth of that standards. See this page for more information. Check my other listings for more gear I'm selling off in anticipation of tax day."

Mutronics Mutator Stereo Filter SN 2175058

via this auction

"Most likely the best stand-alone rack mount stereo (two channel) filter, modulation and envelope follower unit. It has two great resonant filters with cutoff, envelope follower, and an LFO with 4 waveform types that can be linked or inverted. The Mutator is truly a great dance music machine. Run loops, synths, voice or entire mixes through this and filter them in stereo or dual mono. It sounds great!
The two filters are identical and totally independent of each other. The circuitry is analog too. The VCF (filters) have their own envelopes and there is a useful LFO for nice sweeping or pulsing effects. The LFO can also be MIDI synced to your music (it's a little tricky though).
There is a great implementation of MIDI control on the Mutator. Control the filter cutoff from your sequencer by hitting notes on the keyboard. That's it, the notes on your keyboard and the pitch-bend correspond to the different degrees of cutoff. There is no patch memory, but that's ok. The Mutator is a machine that's meant to be grabbed and played with live while either going to tape or live on stage. Filtering music for an effect has become very common these days and the Mutator is among the best machines for achieving this effect. It is THE SOUND used by Daft Punk and has also been used by Fatboy Slim, Future Sound of London, Depeche Mode, and Radiohead."

Super Rare Multivox MX-202 String/brass Synthesizer SN 838379

via this auction

"Here is an incredibly rare Multivox MX-202. Many people say it is a copy of the ROland RS-202 and others say it sounds somewhere in between that and the arp solo a string ensemble. Either way it is this synth is super rare and sounds incredible. You simply cannot reproduce these lush sounds on modern synths. This one is in good condition but is missing one push button (which you could probably find easily if you wanted as they are standard) I never felt a need since the blue button underneath is just as easy to push. The synth is in good working condition and all functions work perfectly including the amazing ensemble chorus and vibrato. There is a bit of static when moving some of the sliders as the unit has not been used in many years. Otherwise it sounds great."

R.A.Moog 701 - kick & snare...

Published on Nov 30, 2015 noddyspuncture

"I seemed to finally sort the 'noise' board I made today. The level out of the Minimoog noise generator I built wasn't hot enough to modulate the 701 - so I made an op-amp gain stage for each of it's outputs. But then that needed a split rail power supply - the Moog type +12/-6 I'd been running it off didn't give me any satisfactory results. So today I hooked it up toe +15/-15 volt one and it all started to behave as I thought it should...! So I then though what should I video today to celebrate...? Aaahh, I know - why not try to get a kick/snare thing going....?"

soundmachines NS1 NANOSYNTH - 1st Modular Synth in the Arduino Store

According to Davide Mancini of soundmachines, the NS1nanosynth is the first modular synth for sale in the Arduino Store. Interesting little bit of synth history. If you search for synth in the Arduino Store you only get the NS1 and Ray Wilson's Make: Analog Synthesizers. A search for synthesizers only brings up the book. It's kind of interesting when you consider how many Arduino based synths and sound machines are out there.

"The NS1nanosynth synthesizer is tiny 220x85mm analog modular synthesizer coupled with an Arduino Micro platform.

NS1nanosynth is a good compromise between complexity and usability. It's a Maker synth, totally hackable and customazable yet a good entry level device, and on a budget."

Polyphonic system Sequencer

Published on Nov 30, 2015 organfairy

"The demo is at 4:30

I still have one box left. So I decided to build a sequencer for the polyphonic instrument. I have build sequencers before so this time I wanted it to be a little different. I have for a long time wanted to experiment with random notes so I gave the sequencer a random mode. I also made it possible to go back and forth in the sequence instead of just forward. So this is actually the most advanced sequencer I have ever build.

The music is something I made using my Wersi Prisma DX-5 organ and Korg Poly 800 synthesizer."

Eurorack With Push 2

Published on Nov 29, 2015 Chris Randall of Audio Damage

"Just got a Push 2, and I'm working out how to integrate it in to my general vibe. So this isn't any particular musical statement, but rather getting a feel for using the Euro stuff in the context of a Push 2.

I'm running two stereo pairs in to Live from the Euro. The first pair is percussion, and the second pair is synth. Not sure if this is where I'll ultimately land, but it seems to work for now. The top Sequencer 1 is driving synths, and the bottom one is driving drums.

Everything audible in the video came from the Euro. The chords are Simpler instruments I made from the WMD/SSF stuff (two channels of that in Live), and the bass is also a Simpler sample of the Euro."

"through Lexicon MPX 1 and Glensound vintage mixing console."


via this auction

"Here is a vintage '70s Moog Minimoog Model D in working condition. Serial #7324. The oscillators sound great. The keyboard bus bar probably needs cleaning, as played notes wander, and get better when the key is played more often. I'm not an expert on vintage synths, however. The keyboard itself feels quite nice, and the unit and panel are in good condition, except for two ends where the panel is slightly warped. The wood overall is good, except for a crack in the top wood section. All in all a good bargain, priced considerably less than others that have been refurbished, if you're knowledgeable about these synthesizers and are willing to give this one some cleanup and TLC. I have a repair invoice from Analogics, the expert analog synth restorers in Ohio, who rebuilt and replaced the keyboard bushings for another Model D for $215 plus shipping (paperwork/invoice available upon request)."

Seaboard RISE and Haken Continuum-II

"This is another small video combining the SEABOARD RISE, from ROLI, and the Haken Continuum, each running its own sound engine (EQUATOR on a Mac for RISE, and Eagan Matrix internal sound engine for the Continuum).

It's just one take, and directly recorded out of the mixer (no editing, so the mix is not perfect and there are a few pitch issues ....). The only addition is a reververb from Valhalla DSP run on a Tiptop Audio Z-DSP.

The VlnVlaCellBass sound of the Continuum (amazing preset from Ed Eagan) is physical modeling based.
The Legato Orchestra on the RISE (probably from Rafael Szaban), from the official ROLI preset bank (with a few local tweaking from me), is sample based.

I'm not trying to replace any instrument here: just playing something I had never been able to play on a keyboard !"

Details captured for the archives.


Nowadays many studios use computers with special software for generate melodies, sequences and patterns. But only analog synthesizer will help to create really intricate repetitive, pulsating, and truly unique melodic patterns. And we offer a unique solutions - FACTOR and CY-CLONE, which are produced by famous techniques of the analogue synthesizers and sequencers (MOOG, ROLAND, KORG, ARP etc.) and used as a single system. They have got similar capabilities in creating of sounds and music sequences, and excellent analog sounding and has low cost. They are collected in standard RACK 19” case for installation in a studio rack."

Peter Blasser of Ciat-Lonbarde on the Tocante Karper


"The new 'Tocante Karper' uses 24 pic chips in parallel to synthesize karplus-strong string emulations, in the Tocante scale. That scale is initially based on a very analog thing- the capacitor values in an E6 preferred number set. For example: 10, 15, 22, 33, 47 and 68 are my starting numerology. Because they are integers, and also because the frequency varies as the reciprocal of the capacitance (bigger capacitor, lower frequency), it ported over seamlessly to sixteen bit string buffers of different lengths..."

ROLAND TR 606 with Mods

For sale on eBay Germany

English below:

" Die Roland TR 606 wurde folgendermassen gemodded:
- Einzelausgänge
- Mute Switches (kick, snare, lo tom, hi tom, cymbal, hihat )
- Tom Trigger Mute, so dass man von einem Tom nur noch den "hauchigen" Geräuschanteil hört
- und wie man sieht, viele Regler für Klangveränderungen:
links je eine Reihe senkrecht für Kick, Snare, Toms, die gesamte rechte Seite ist für Hihats und Cymbal zuständig

Ich wollte noch einen Griff dranmachen, damit es wie ein alter Ghettoblaster aussieht,
aber auch so sieht diese 606 ziemlich cool aus;)

Ich habe inkl der TR 606 damals ca 1100 EUR ausgegeben (es stecken viele Stunden ARBEIT drin!)
Kommt mit Netzteil.

Hier ein längeres Klangbeispiel

Fragen können gern unter goldtone (a t) gestellt werden !"


"this one of a kind Roland TR 606 was made for me by a tech in Berlin.

it not only features single outs and mute switches (kick, snare, lo tom, hi tom, cymbal, hihat )

but also specials like
Tom second trigger mute (so you hear only the noise of the second tom)
and of course many knobs to manipulate the sounds, the right side is
dedicated to cymbal/hihats with lots of interacting knobs.
As you hear in the audio file, you can even do kind of minimal clicky beats with it.

Plan was to put it into some kind of "old ghettblaster" -style holder,
hence the shape. But the happy buyer might want to do something like that.

Here is a longer soundfile

I paid about 1100 EUR incl the TR 606 at that time - it was many hours of work for the man to do all the mods.

Simply multing a fixed voltage offset into each channel quickly gives you a basic 4-stage sequencer, but using the gate ins and stage control gives you the opportunity to create complex, evolving melodies."

Vintage 70s Paia Oz 3760 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"This battery powered, polyphonic synth from the late 70's covers 5 octaves, is portable, and sounds incredible. All keys and knobs work on this synth. Has built in speaker that sounds great mic'd. I've owned this PAIA for several years and kept it in great working order. Takes 2 - 9volt batteries. Missing top case cover. Also looks to have been modded in the back to plug into a wall socket. I've only used it with batteries. Exterior is in good condition, normal wear and tear for an instrument thats almost 40 years old..."

Roland Jupiter 6 Synthesizer with Europa Upgrade

via this auction

"Up for sale is a beautiful example of a Roland Jupiter 6 Keyboard. This keyboard was bought from Ko at modeless factory in Japan and has been gently cared for ever since. It has been living in a smoke free studio and always has a protective cover over it. The only thing wrong is that its missing a slider cap which you can buy from ebay or Syntaur, very easy to find and pop on. At some point somebody fitted some nice hardwood sides to it that have a really nice finish. This particular Jupiter also has the europa mod which gives you some really cool arpeggiator modes, extra memory, arpeggiator syncs to midi, etc. My favorite new feature is that you can turn both osc to make weird sound effects with the noise and filter. Everything is working 100 percent with no scratchy pots, noise etc. It also comes with a protective cover, manual and a rolling carrying case."

Roland Jupiter 8 w/MIDI (Encore)

via this auction

via the seller: "Roland Jupiter 8 with Encore midi (In & out) professionally installed by Encore and synth fully serviced. Studio use only and in fantastic condition, but cosmetically and sonically (please view all pictures carefully, since "looks" is a subjective thing and I want this listing to be 100% fair). I'm not a tech person, but I "think" this is the 14bit version (back panel fully photographed, if that helps). I had the midi kit installed, works perfectly. Tuning and synth is rock solid (Roland Jupiter lines are built like tanks, I also own a Jupiter 6 & 4). No known problems what-so-ever. Will take it to UPS store to be professionally packed, which I will charge as part of shipping (it's just safer that way). Vintage analog synth, so sold "as-is," but it is leaving 100% in working condition. Winning bidder can request a video before shipping so there are no questions."

Dave Smith Instruments Poly Evolver Keyboard: Vintage Strings

Published on Nov 28, 2015 Sacred Synthesis

"The Poly Evolver Keyboard is certainly not known for its vintage sounds or overall tone. I've heard it criticized as falling short in the strings department, and even Dave Smith himself has said this. Well, I would respectfully disagree; I think the PEK can make gorgeous string sounds, but strings of the Evolver sort. So, in the tradition of those bright and buzzy string synthesizers - the ARP Omni, Elka Rhapsody, and a dozen others - I decided to offer an Evolver's version of vintage strings. However, I didn't try to strictly "emulate" the sound - as awful as it is! - but to offer something certainly reminiscent of it but hopefully a little better. The PEK can produce a more accurate imitation than this, but I chose to record something only similar.

A few sound design notes. There are two ways of producing decent strings on the Poly Evolver Keyboard: using only the analog oscillators, or else, using the analog and the digital oscillators together. The first way seems more logical if one is imitating an old string synthesizer, but in order to increase the oscillator beating you have to partially or entirely eliminate the stereo field with the Output Pan parameter. But this eliminates a very desirable depth. The other way of combining both the analog and digital oscillators provides decent oscillator beating and maintains the stereo depth, but it unfortunately adds digital aliasing as well - especially on such a bright sound with which you're prone to play a lot on the upper end of the keyboard. The best solution was to set the analog oscillators at 100 and the digital oscillators at 30. And I used one oscillator of pulse width modulation. This offered the best combination of old school effects and timbre and avoided unmusical aliasing.

Many years ago, I had a tan Elka Rhapsody 490. It was an ugly crackly shrill old thing that could be made to sound fair in a mix. But In my opinion, the Poly Evolver Keyboard sounds a thousands times better - even at the one and only sound the Elka made. But that's not to deny that I'd be thrilled to see a re-issue of one of those vintage string machine classics.

via this auction

"Rare Roland SH-1000 classic vintage analog mono synth from 1973 in beautiful condition - Roland's first synth. Used very lightly in my smoke-free / pet-free home studio.

Operationally: everything works 100% and sounds so analog and vintage.

Cosmetically: really good shape, especially for a 42 year old synth (see the photos). (The left side wooden end is just a tiny bit loose but it's unnoticeable in operation. Just make sure to grab it from the underside and not pull on the wood when moving it, as it's really fake particle wood, not real wood.)"

Moog 700 series drum & percussion played by hand....

Published on Nov 28, 2015 noddyspuncture

"So, having cased up all my 700 series modules (along with the triple noise generator board I built and the power supply) I thought I'd mess around trying to hit those red buttons in time to get some sort of beat going...!? I know, I know - it's a crappy set of beats - but it's the best I could do. I'm not a drummer and those buttons are quite hard to stab at accurately anyway. But once I have these being sequenced by a 'clock circuit' it should be quite nice I think...;)"

"In excellent vintage working shape! Includes volume pedal, original top cover, original locking keys (attached to extension cord in pictures) and original music stand (attached to bottom). Recently tuned by yours truly, it is in excellent working order. I tuned all voices and harmonics (3rd, 5th, 6th). Also replaced all "piano" voice electrolytics.

This is like a combination ARP Pro-Soloist and simple polyphonic string machine. But, it has its own character especially when you add the envelope wah effect, portamento and vibrato."

A Winter Sequence

Published on Nov 28, 2015 experimentalsynth

"After hooking up the gear, this piece kind of wrote itself. Patterning on the iPad was the master MIDI Clock. The Pro 2 and MicroBrute sequencers, along with the H9 and a Line 6 Echo Pro were synced to it. The Pro 2 sent independent synced CV step sequences to modulate the Voyager filter and the filter on a Moog MF-101 Low Pass Filter processing the MicroBrute. The MicroBrute audio was also processed by the Echo Pro.

Korg PS-3100 Vintage Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction

via the seller: "This Synth is in excellent condition. I had it fully serviced this year after it had been sitting in storage for a few years. It was owned by a dear friend of mine who passed away recently. Service was done By Stefan at Solutions in Hollywood, CA. As far as I know, everything is working great. Incredible sounds, endless possibilities. I would love to keep it but I really would not use it. This needs to be in the hands of a collector or a vintage synth lover. These synths have sold for much more than I am starting the bidding at- not sure where the market is at the moment but we shall see. I would be willing to ship if necessary but obviously that will be an extra cost."

Korg PS-3010 keyboard & PS-3001 60 pin connector for Korg PS series

via this auction

"You are bidding on a Korg PS-3010 keyboard for Korg PS series (PS-3100, PS-3200 & PS-3300) and the 60 pin connector cable PS-3001. Comes from the PS-3200 of the Moogchild Synthdrome collection (as you can see in the last picture), and I'm selling it because I've found another NOS keyboard from 1978. It is fully functional and in very good shape with some minor signs of wear (see pictures).

Korg PS-3200s and PS-3300 without midi won't work without this keyboard, so if you have the synth but neither the keyboard nor the cable, this is a unique chance to complete a system currently valued above 10.000USD and increasing price overtime."

Gotharman's Little deFormer 2-Granular workstation,sampler, synth, effects

via this auction

"Granular workstation with sampler, synth, effects processor and sequencer

New on the Little deFormer 2:

-LD1 had a combined Effects Freeze and Sequencer start/stop button. On LD2 this has been splitted up to 2 separate buttons.

-It is possible to expand the memory of LD2, so it will get 200 minutes of sampling time, 1024 presets and 1024 songs. The extra sample memory is located in its own physical bank, and it is possible to copy samples between the two banks, and erase all samplings in one bank at a time.

-All shortcuts is written on the frontpanel.

-Compact, but yet it has a big display for easier navigation and editing.

Gotharman's Little deFormer combines a granular effects processor with special effects like TimeStretcher, Step-Granulator and PitchShaper and more usual effects like Reverb, delay, distortion, compressor, filters and bit manipulation, with some special parameters, with a 100/200 minutes sampler, a synth and a step sequencer. A MIDI Note Randomizer is also included.

Both the samplings and external gear, connected to it's 2 audio input can be effected. A complete list of effects can be found in the specs section below. Watch and hear Little deFormer in action, in the video's section. I have planned to use the Little deFormer as a platform for engineering new effects, so additional effects will be added now and then, which will be available as free downloads on this site. These updates will be available as MIDI sysex files in".syx" format, and you will need a program like Midi-Ox to download these to Little deFormer.

The 4-note polyphonic sampler makes it possible to record your own samplings directly from the 2 audio inputs, or re-sample it's audio output. Samplings are stored in FLASH RAM for instant recall, without any loading times. Up to 200 minutes/999 samplings can be kept. Start and end points can be changed in realtime and modulated, and it also has functions like AutoChop, for a conveniant and easy way to cut up long samplings. Each sampling has it's own Phaze effect and filter with LPF, LFP2, BPF, BPF8, HPF, ADD, BEF, BASS, LO-FI and SHAPER modes, and a filter mix parameter. It is also possible to adjust the filter response, to create filter types, that have never been heard before. The Little deFormer comes loaded with samplings of other Gotharman gear. Instead of samplings, it is also possible to use Little deFormers build-in oscillators for sound generation. They can morph from sinewave to triangle to sawtooth to squarewave to noise. Pulsewidth modulation is possible on all waveforms.

The Little deFormer comes with an expansion port, for connecting any of the available expansion boxes. Notice, that only one expansion box can be connected at a time."
