Was it a ghost passing?

Published on Aug 20, 2015 bitleyTM

"As I was jamming loosely around Stanley Myers' Cavatina (from The Deer Hunter), a mysterious shadow suddenly passed the camera lens. You can see it at about 2.44. I was all alone in my home, which is a rebuilt community center for elderly. But that's good, now the ghosts too know about Roland's new synthesizer, the JD-XA."

JD-XA Noodling 2

Published on Aug 20, 2015 bitleyTM

"We're entering the world of 'polysynthin' and I'm tweaking around a bit. As you can see it's very easy to mistakenly edit the wrong part, I guess it's a matter of getting used to it. I've not found the ultimate polysynth settings yet but I'm getting there... :)"

Vintage Moog Memorymoog Plus Analog Synthesizer SN 3171

"Really nice well taken care of Memorymoog plus that works exactly as it should. The prices on these guys is getting kind of crazy. I thought I would offer a nice example at a fair price. There are no dents or major cosmetic issues. What you are buying is a really pretty Moog that I'm positive you will be happy you purchased. The wood is in excellent condition and it feels and plays fantastic..."

Acidlab Drumatix Analog Drum Machine Synth TR-606 Clone

Novation // Launch Control XL - Standalone Hardware Synth Control

Published on Aug 20, 2015

"Following a recent firmware development for Launch Control and Launch Control XL, both devices can now be used to control external hardware without a computer, using a USB host-to-MIDI converter — such as the Kenton MIDI USB Host, or iConnectMIDI 4+ — to provide full MIDI implementation, with standard 5-pin DIN connection.

This is a huge development for hardware users who love the amount of controls that the Launch series offers, but who do not want or need a computer in their setup.

Here, CALC is using the Launch Control XL and Kenton MIDI USB Host to control his the Elektron Octatrack.

"Two SH-101 lines interacting with each other. One is a real SH-101, the other is D16's LuSH-101 being sequenced by the Arturia BeatStep Pro. The BSP is also sending triggers to the SH-101's clock input to trigger the sequencer."

Meta Demora - Demo 002

Published on Aug 20, 2015 Owen Canivet

"Braids Meta Vs Roland Demora
Patch using the meta mode in braids as main sound source and outputting to Roland Demora.
QCD is master clock, different clock measures fed to Macro Machines Dynamic Destiny and stepped through in random mode then output sent to clock Modcan Touch Sequencer and Tiptop Circadian Rhythm, and Demora sync finally also used to clock sync time on Modcan Dual Delay. Clock measures stacked and used to sync Modcan Quad LFO, Make Noise Wogglebug and SSF Ultra Random.

Wogglebug stepped output activates braids Meta mode, various random modulation on braids and split output to one channel of Make noise optomix for percussive hits and also to Roland Demora. Quad LFO modulates Demora feedback and width. Demora has custom patch with clock syncing and modulated 12db filter. Bypass switch is also activated by triggers to cut off and gate effect. Finally Demora Output is put through Eventide Space.

Pad is Intellijel Shapeshifter in chord mode put through Mutable clouds. Randomly modulated for interest then passed through ADDAC 601 fixed filter bank. Bands are pinged with triggered envelopes and LFO’s from Quad LFO. Finally output to Modcan Dual delay.

Percussion is Mutable Peaks kick (x2) sequenced by Circadian Rhythm, SSF Quantum Rainbow white Noise Hats. Snare created on ALM Dinky’s Taiko with noise envelope randomly opened with attenuated trigger from Circadian Rhythm. Two Channels from Modcan Touch Sequencer controls pitch for Braids and Clouds .

All Euro except for Eventide Space Mixed Eq’d and panned on Soundcraft mixer into Logic. Live muting and fading. Vintage warmer strapped on master bus to glue it all together :) "

"Download the Audio track for FREE here-

The blinky thing in the upper right corner is a Bit Blob 2, and come from Bleep Labs. Visit their website here-

The Bleep Labs Bit Blob 2 is a drone synth controlled by connecting alligator clips to bolts attached to the circuits. The chain starts with the Bit Blob 2, then goes into the Korg Monotron for rhythmic filtering, then into the Boss Hyper Fuzz for some brutal distortion, then into the Monotron Delay for more filtering and tape echo. This whole chain then goes into a mackie Onyx mixer than brings it into Logic Pro for recording and a little bit of Compression, EQ & a dash of Verb."

Waldorf Microwave XT XTK II 30 Voice Expansion Card

via this auction

Announced back in February, these are no longer available from Encore.

Update via kurvenschreiber in the comments: "just asked Tony, and that is not true, next batch is baking now"

Auction description:

"This is the hard to find XT voice expansion Card. Out of stock at Encore and they don't plan on making any more. Waldorf stopped making these 10 years ago, only other way to get these is in the off chance you will find an expanded XT. This board has been tested working and parts are all new stock. Do not buy if your XT, MWII or XTK has Board #1 or Board #2 - It will not work!!! Check your XT by going to utility menu and clicking in 6 times, this will tell you your board revision. Only Board#3 is compatible and you need to remove the stock jumper and install the included hardware. Best advice is to have your synth shop install it. Final requirement is your OS must be 2.33 for best compatibility and your XT/XTK/MWII must be in good working order!!!

BIN is higher than Encore price due to the fact that it is out of production by Waldorf and Encore. By purchasing this item you agree your hardware meets the minimum requirements..."

Future Retro Revolution Nova Edition 1/15 SE Silver Analog Synth

via this auction

"From a smoke free, power conditioned, professional studio. Back up unit that saw little use (we use a regular edition). According to FR;

'In 2006, we did a very limited production run of what we called the SE units in both a silver and UV orange finish. In addition to the obvious color changes, these were the first Revolution units to have the black aluminum end pieces. They also featured unique combinations of colored key caps and included one modification that provided a logical accent gate output on the ring connector of the gate output jack. Each unit was also hand-signed and numbered. All silver models shown above were sold exclusively through Nova Musik in the USA. Only 15 of these units were ever made.'

Great one of kind piece, this is the only one I know of with wooden ends. Updated OS and a fresh battery a few years back. Original PSU provided.'"

Circuit Bent Hing Hon EK-001 by freeform delusion

Published on Aug 20, 2015 freeform delusion

"Circuit Bent Hing Hon EK-001 for Dima -

Pitch Up/Down Control,
FDBK1 - This is switchable for high screaming feedback,
FDBK2 - This is switchable for a lower type of feedback,
BASS switch - This does provide some added bass to the sound and feedbacks,
HIFI switch - adds some sparkle to make the sound louder and clearer,
SUS switch - A centre off switch - Two types of infinite note hold - One louder than the other depending on what you want,
SNARES switch - A centre off switch - two slightly different constant snare crashing, sounds harsh and strange,
TEMPO mute switch - This is linked to the tempo LED so the sound cuts off (so does the LED) creating some off beat muting, can sound interesting though."
