Korg Monopoly SN 372543 with MIDIPoly Upgrade

via this auction

"For sale is my korg monopoly with midipoly upgrade. This adds MIDI + some new features such as sample & hold and triggering of any individual or combination of oscillators via MIDI velocity.

It has some cosmetic damage to its keys from an incident with a cigarette, but the keys are easy to replace and the incident didn't damage the synth itself in any way. Should be a $40 fix to have it up to snuff cosmetically.

When the MIDIpoly kit was installed, i think the tech soldered the mod wheel MIDI cables to the wrong posts for the pitchbend and mod wheel, because turning MG2 effects MG1 and vice versa, with eachothers callibration, not giving the proper effect to the wheels. I want to let this issue be known to buyers prior to bidding!! Could be a pretty easy fix, just resoldering 2 cables.Apart from that it sounds and looks great."

Rare Vintage Analog Synthesizer Keyboard of Unknown Origin

via this auction

If anyone knows more about this one feel free to comment (no need to login!). The look kind of reminds me of a Vermona '14 meets Baldwin Explorer.

Update: someone in the comments said it looks like a Minisonic 2. I think that might be it (see this post). The knob layout starting with the two large knobs on right match.

The following is the description from the auction. This is not a modular so obviously ignore that bit.

Triadex Muse

via this auction

"This is a super rare Triadex Muse from the early 1970's is pretty good condition. Less than 300 were made. I've replaced a couple of the little light bulbs that were burned out (they are not very bright anyway), and cleaned it up the best I could - I'm skilled in electronic repairs and restoration BTW.

I've never seen inside one before this, but it appears someone else had done some repairs, so not knowing exactly, I left it alone. It works great though.

The knobs on the 4 slide pots are missing but that doesn't affect its function. It's a bit fragile, in that it's mechanical wooden design is rather poor - not something you'll want to tour with! ;-) , but it's sturdy enough for casual play in your studio..."

"Up for sale is Korg M-500 Micro-Preset vintage analog synthesizer, one of the most earliest and rarest synths Korg produced in the '70s. This one is a super rare version that Korg made under the name of Victor, which has different coloring to the genuine Korg M-500, although the synth itself are exactly the same.

The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and sliders and buttons worked well to the best of my knowledge. Maybe a slight bad contacts on some of the switches, which could probably do with some adjustment/servicing..."

BURG - Lighthouse (Roland TB-3, TR-8, KORG volca, Strymon)

Published on Aug 14, 2015 ollilaboratories

"So, im currently preparing for a live gig, a fund raiser charity event together with my friends here in KL 23/8... I took the opportunity to record when im jamming/prepping with my new Roland TB-3, sort of making it the focal bassline in this track. Man its really hard to blend the basslines together with the Volca bass, not using a EQ on either one of the bass synths. :)

Not much to say about this one, its 126 bpm, techno style, 4 on the floor with some classic BURG vibes :-) As always no multitracking or computers involved.. pure hardware straight into 2-track (zoom Q4) BoOoM!

ps, live event im prepping for: - check it out and share some love!

Gear used: KORG volca bass x2, sample, keys, Roland Aira TB-3, TR-8 (the system-1 is not used on this track), elektron analog four.

FX: Strymon timeline, mooer reecho, jomox t-resonator, kaoss pad"

This is the result of my first playing around and getting acquainted with this groovebox. I used stock samples (with some tweaking) and programmed some sounds with the internal synth machines.
All sequences are original.

STG Soundlabs - Mankato Filter

Published on Aug 14, 2015 DivKidMusic

"Here's the eurorack version of the STG Soundlabs Mankato Filter. It's a got a ring of 8 outputs which are each pole of the 4 pole low pass filter. Giving you a 6dB 1 pole filter, 12dB 2 pole filter, 18dB 3 pole filter and the 24dB 4 pole filter. There's then phase inverted outputs for each of these creating a quadrature oscillator and LFO. The unit crosses each path of filter, oscillator and LFO really well and there's plenty of inputs for mixing signals in and CV.

Three sine waves are going into a Doepfer A 138 mixer, then into the Spectral Devastator. One of the sine waves is modulated by the Intellijel uFold, the Fold section is modulated by a slow triangle wave.

OSCiLLOT Modular System v 1.1 & Free Lite Version

Published on Aug 14, 2015 max forcats
Video and link for Lite version below.

"OSCiLLOT v. 1.1 - new MIDI Macro map system and Modules by
v1.1 Changelog:"

The update brings Max 7 compatibility and introduces a new Macro Mapping feature, allowing you to remotely control any OSCiLLOT parameter via automation and MIDI for full hands-on control of your modular patches.
The number of included OSCiLLOT modules also continues to grow, and for this update the DSP wizards at Surreal Machines have produced several special units to bolster your modular creation (or destruction) needs…

• New Macro mapping system allows to assign the 8 macros directly to all module parameters.
• All module displays / meters are now drawn in high resolution on Retina displays (requires Max 7).
• Maximum zoom factor of the Editor GUI has been increased to 150%, allowing for more convenient patching on large displays.
• 3PhaseChorus has more modulation targets for the CV1 input and a new performance-optimized OpenGL display, which significantly reduces the module’s GPU load.

• Max for Cats GrainResynth
• Surreal Machines Destroyer
• Surreal Machines Analog Slew Delay
• Surreal Machines MultibandDistortion
• Surreal Machines PrecisionHighCut
• Surreal Machines Xover

• When using Max 7 on OS X 10.10, Oscillot could crash when loading presets or modules.
• When using Max 7 on Windows, Oscillot would freeze when loading modules.
• When using Max 7, the Live and Max version information in the display of the main device would be incorrectly aligned.
• Certain displays / meters would sometimes not be drawn after closing and reopening the Oscillot Editor window.
• Digidelay: delay time calculation was incorrect.
• Pitch2Trigger: fifth outlet would not work.
• Slew limiter x1000 times would not work.
• Fixed some layout issues in OSC A.
