Evaton Technologies CLX dual clock module for eurorack modular

Published on Aug 9, 2015 Flux302 of

Dual Clock / LFO / Clocked Logic Module

Stop using up your LFOs as clock sources in complex patches!

The CLX is a dual clock source module, with two independent, free-running, 50% duty-cycle square wave analog oscillators, plus logic outputs. Each oscillator has its own frequency control knob, and a high and low frequency range, which is selectable via a toggle switch.

The frequency ranges from less than one cycle per second up into the low audio (several hundred hertz) range.

Clocked Logic
In addition to the two independent clock outputs, the CLX has an output for the Logical AND and Logical XOR (exclusive OR) of the two clocks. The AND output is high only when both the A and B clocks are high. The XOR output is high only when A is high or B is high, but not both.

The logic outputs allow you to create some complex rhythmic material by using the ratio of the two clock rates to produce intricate repeating patterns of clocks.

Gate Driver
All CLX outputs can also be used as gates for things like Envelope Generators, VCA's, etc. The XOR output becomes very interesting when used as a gate source, as the pulse width of the XOR signal varies as the A and B clocks go in and out of phase.

The CLX outputs are unipolar square wave outputs, and can be used anywhere a square wave LFO would be used. Using the logic outputs allows you to create a dynamically-changing LFO.

Audio Drone
The CLX outputs go up into the audio frequency range, and can be used as fixed oscillators. The logic outputs sound very reminiscent of ring-modulated drones, as the AND and XOR signals vary in pulse width depending on the frequency and relative phase of the A and B clocks.

Width: 6HP
Depth: 20mm
Power: 10 mA @ +/- 12V
Range: Sub-1Hz to 230 Hz
Signal Output: 0 to 8V

Available Soon
The CLX will be available Summer of 2015, MSRP $159 USD"

Yamaha CS-70m rare analogue synthesizer SN 1441

via this auction

"One of the rarest analogue synths ever. 12 VCOs, stereo output - real fat sound! Pretty close to CS-80, but much stable and autotunable.

In fully working order and good cosmetic condition.

Pots and switches moves without any cracks or noises. The tune is fine. Patch memory function also works as should.

No dust or dirt inside.

All electrolytic capacitors in power supply was replaced and PSU was precisely adjusted after that.
Fully serviced and ready for years of problem-free use!

As you can see in photos, battery cover has lost some paintwork, because of old battery leakage. I have changed battery holder to the exactly same, but new and clean. ( if you need the old battery holder, I can included it.)

Socket for power cable was replaced to the standard type, that you can find on any modern PC, for example. If you want, I can place original socket back, and give you original cable, but if you loose or broke it, I am sure that it will be pain to find a replacement because of it rareness..."

Jen SX1000 Analogue Monophonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"In good working condition, front panel very good, a few knob caps missing as usual, wooden side cheeks a bit scratched and used. This is a good workhorse synth with an immediate interface allowing for fast creation of new sounds."

Teisco S100P Analogue Monophonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"Versatile 1970s synth in superb condition with clean, unmarked panels, brightly coloured knob caps, unmarked body (except for faint mark where a label has been removed above the keyboard). Some slight dints in the wooden ends. The general consensus is that these synths were made by Arp.

All functions work well: the Mode switch doesn't click into it's 3 positions but does work correctly. The aftertouch is a bit stiff and needs a firm key press. Very dramatic modulation effects are easily achieved with the aftertouch. As well as loads of presets there is a non resonant filter called Brilliance, LFO, Portamento/Glissando (very unusual!), Flanger, Spring Reverb (very, very unusual!), Repeat, Pitch Bend, Hold and more.

Supplied with power lead and manual (not original)."

Buchla 207r Expansion In Tip

Published on Aug 9, 2015 Todd Barton

"Not a 'big' tip but a fun one. Since the Expansion Input on the Buchla 207e mixer has no attenuation and is routed permanently to the final mix is it perfect for external softsynth keyboard. In this instance an East Coast digital Animoog meets the West Coast Buchla. Enjoy"

Live Modular Synth Performance: "Free Ride" by P.O.B. (@obrienmedia)

Published on Aug 9, 2015 Patrick OBrien

"My latest modular synthesizer song, performed live, showcasing all the sick lights and sounds that make modular synths the best musical instruments ever.

- The beginning "horn" is a sample sound from QuBit's Nebulae

- Added the Mutant drums (Bassdrum, HiHats, Cymbals), with the bass line from The Harvestman's Hertz Donut.

- Flute melody comes from Mutable Instruments' Braids, morphed by Expert Sleepers' Disting, then crazy distorted by the Malgorithm, pulling the patch cord out from Metrolpolis and touching the pitch jack for the heavy metal guitar breakdown.

- Bells at the end from Mutable's Elements with DPO and tELHARMONIC both being filtered with high resonance by DSI's Curtis Filter.

- Rhythms created by both the Delptronics Trigger Man and 4ms' SCM/SCM Breakout.

No computers were used in this piece. All modular synths.

I am P.O.B. living in Los Angeles.

Solid Walnut Chassis / Body / Case for the KORG Polysix

via this auction

The listing is for the case only.

"The sides and front rail are crafted out of solid walnut which is quite expensive. The bottom panel is made out of quality maple plywood (no particle board or utility grade plywood here). I recently built another for a Polysix owner and now have decided to offer these on eBay. I'm not aware of anyone else currently making these available. There was another guy once, but he seems to have vanished about 3 years ago. From his pictures, I didn't like what he was offering anyhow. He had large screws on the outside holding on the end caps, junky, knotty utility grade plywood for the bottom and no RF shielding added. Other than the internal battery that would often leak and destroy a Polysix, a common complaint of owners was the cheap particle board body that banged up and crumbled easily."

Cwejman DMF-2 Dual Mode Filter

via this auction

"The DMF-2 is a dual mode and dual slope filter. The DMF-2 emulates the familiar low pass filter in 4 pole mode and expands sonic potential by adding a unique designed 6 pole low pass mode and quasi and pass mode.

Both filters (A and B) are identical and can be controlled separately and by master inputs for the cutoff (CM A+B). The audio outputs from both filters are combined (LPF A+B and BPF A+B) with dual resonance (peak and offers "formant" shaped sounds in low pass and band pass mode. Filters has an individual audio input and additionally combined input (AUDIO A+B).

The DMF-2 is characterized by a non-linear transfer function, so-called saturation mode, that is affected by the level strenght of the incoming signals.

The design quality of LPF's and new features makes the DMF-2 very flexible and results in qualities, such as:
CUTOFF, Q-PEAK are voltage controlled
4 and 6 poles low pass mode (24 dB/octave and 36 dB/octave)
Quasi band pass mode (6dB/octave high pass on the low side and 24dB/octave low pass on the high side)
Saturable; from "warm" and "smooth" sound (at low to moderate level of incoming signal) to heavy distorted "nasty" and "aggressive" (at high level of incoming signals)
Ideal as "effect filter"
Formant mode (dual peak) with summed inputs and outputs
Stereo effects
Low noise"


via this auction

"Roland's first truly professional analog synthesizer. This amazing piece features 16 rich analog oscillators at 2 per voice.

Great sliders, knobs and buttons to give you the maximum flexible for tweaking each sound.

This piece also includes Midi sockets by Encore Electronics, which is another rare feature for the Jupiter 8.

The MIDI IN works perfectly which makes it easier and more convenient to work with your DAWs. The MIDI OUT is not functional in this unit, as it was designed in this way.

Although there are some minor scratches, the piece is in excellent condition for its age..."

Roland MSQ-700 Sequencer

via this auction

"Very cool mid-80s sequencer from Roland for their MIDI and DCB (but not at the same time) keyboards. Having DCB allows you to use this to record from and playback sequences to Juno 60s and Jupiter 8s as well. Can Sync the sequencer to 808s, 606s, CR8000s and other drum machines that have DIN-SYNC. You can even save aftertouch info when using MIDI.

This works fully but will need a new battery if you intend to power it off and save your sequences."

Vintage ROLAND TB-303 & TR-606 Lot w/ Cases

via this auction

"Also included in this job lot:

- 2x Genuine Roland flight / canvas cases.
- Genuine Roland TB-303 Operators Manual (**a little rough around the edges - all pages intact - see pictures**)
- DIN Sync Analogue Cable to hook them both up together
- 2 x 9V Power Supplys (not originals but replacements)
- Operators Manual for the TR-606 (photocopy) and Service Notes for both units (photocopies)...

Both sound absolutely AMAZING...

However... PLEASE NOTE:

On testing the knobs and buttons (after 30 years stored) I've noticed a couple of operating problems...


The Decay knob doesn't appear to effect the sound when turned so may have a slight faulty connection.


1) the CH (closed hat) - you can't hear the sound when the knob is turned (again could be a slight faulty connection)
2) Button number 16 won't light up when pressed (this could be tempremental too)..."
