Snap - Rhythm is a Dancer (Live synth cover)

Published on Aug 24, 2015 Synt5

"This is our live performance of the classic 1992 eurodance hit Rhythm is a Dancer, by German group Snap!

Every synth line was played live, without resorting to computers or sequencers. No midi. Our syncing was based on a revolutionary metronome-to-earphones system :)

From left to right, gear list and synth players were:

Korg M1 - França Guimaraes - Choir pad, strings lead, piano solo
Sequential Sixtrak, Sp404 - Guillermo Caceres - Bass, drums triggering
Korg Microkorg - George Frederick - 16th note synth
Yamaha An1x - Anderson Freitas - Main synth phrase, synth solos
Clavia Nord Lead 2x - João Marcos - Bell-like synth line
Vocals - Quésia Carvalho

The arrangement was based on a combination of the Radio Edit and the 12'' versions. We decided to leave out Turbo B's rap verses to favour the instrumental lines.

This time we had available one of the original synths known to have been used in the original track - the Korg M1. This allowed us to recreate the voice choir, the strings and the piano exactly as they appear on the original recording. The original bell-like sound played by the Nord Lead could also be found on the M1 library, but we would've run out of keyboard space to map the sound appropriately.

The versatile Microkorg was programmed with a sixteenth note repetition, which prevented the player from dying of muscle cramps and helped to keep us in sync during the instrumental interludes.

The drums were reconstructed with 909 samples using Reaper, bounced to audio, and played back by the Sp404. The only sample was the hit sound that can be heard during the intro and instrumental parts.

Again, please forgive the grainy quality, the shaky hands and the few misplaced notes, we were just having fun."

Oberheim OB-MX 10 Voice Vintage Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"For sale is one of the kings of analog synthesizers, the beautiful OB-MX. This is a highly underrated synthesizer & sounds AMAZING with huge modulation capabilities & beautiful sound. I've played almost all vintage & modern synths, the Prophet 5, Andromeda, Jomox Sunsyn, & the OB-MX definitely holds its own against the others, with a very unique sound all to its own. Can do some great pads & effects, and cool analog bass, leads, keys, etc. I have a couple sets of sysex patches that you can load onto the OB-MX via midi, just to give you a few more options. Unit cosmetically is in fantastic shape, near mint. Includes power cable and manual. This one has 5 cards (2 voices per card) for 10 voices total and each card tends to sell for $600 - $800 on its own, so this is a great deal. Don't miss out!"

New Trogotronic m/669 Euro Module

Published on Aug 24, 2015 trogotronic

"Informational video and brief demonstration of the Trogotronic m/669 Euro Module."

Eurorack version of the 669. Details via Trogotronic:

"Analog Audio Artifacts: event-horizons of sonic singularities rendered in hyper-tonal arthropod spectra. Primal purpose for the m/669 Analog Euro-Module. With a presence more sickening than a platter of polonium sushi the m/669 is the most untamed sonic provocateur ever offered. With an eight input CV bank (7 of which are vactrol circuits) the deviant subhumans issue the new m/669 BossHog Module with a prehistoric grunt. Regard the feature list of this commanding analog obscenity with caution:

3 Oscillators
3 Master Oscillator Controls
3 Analog Audio Artifact Generators
1 Volume Control
3 Modulator Patches
4 Light Indicator Array
8 CV Inputs
7 Vactrol Circuits
Audio Signal Input for Unique Side-Chain or Solo FX Duties

From expansive leviathan drones that plumb the depths of heavy water reactors to mind-reading staccato glitch attack the sheer power of the m/669 BossHog Module’s sonic devastation is simply extraordinary. Yes, Virginia, m/669 BossHog Module can BOTH be the backdrop scenic drone AND an all analog rhythm section played in realtime via CV inputs. If the multimillion-dollar flying killbots had ears this would be the guiding beacon they obey."

Omenie Synth Collection : On-screen metronome

Published on Aug 24, 2015 Pi Synth

"A feature that went in today - an on-screen metronome, rendered underneath the waves display. This makes the system usable on tracks that kick off without drumming, or in fact those with only silence coming out of the sequencer. The metronome lets a player understand the tempo, where the 1-2-3 and 4 beats are, and very much increases the usability of the synth collection in a perfomance-plus-sequencer setting."

Doug Lynner Live - μHausen 2015 - Becoming Zen About It

Published on Aug 24, 2015 Doug Lynner

"Electronic music composer/performer Doug Lynner plays 'Becoming Zen About It' at the 2015 μHausen Festival in Boulder Creek, CA on 8/16/15. The music plays off of the 100 degree temps and seeks to lead to a "cooling down" as the sounds morph through sizzle, fire and insects to a rich, undulating, soothing drone.

The patch used for 'Becoming Zen About It' is based upon the Patch of The Week "The Anatomy of a Drone at .

Yamaha SHS-10 keytar synth with strap & soft case, midi controller SN 131228

via this auction

"This keyboard works and sounds great! Sure, the built in FM sounds sound great and retro, but plug in a midi cable and you can control the synths on your laptop or your iPad/iPhone (with the rigth adaptors) while you walk around the stage or studio. I think this (rare) silver model looks less like a toy than the red versions. And, believe me, this is NOT a TOY!

They say that sitting too long is as bad for you as smoking too much. So stop sitting at your keyboard and start walking around while you play your favorite synths!

There is a minor blemish on one corner (see photos), but nothing that stops it from working great. It is missing the battery cover, but the batteries (not included) are securely in there even without it. (It of course works with an external power supply, not included.)

Oberheim Xpander Vintage Analog Synthesizer - Professionally Serviced SN 700024

via this auction

"Oberheim Xpander in perfect operational condition. professionally serviced at the end of April (by Retroactivesynth dot com) - passes all tuning procedures and plays and sounds amazing!

Cosmetically I'd rate this unit a B or B+. Not bad but certainly not a museum piece. It has several blemishes on the main control panel (which I've tried to highlight in the pictures) as well as many small scratches on the metal surrounds (the paint on the metal is very thin and comes away easily, for example with a fingernail - seems to be common enough on Xpanders). Also the wooden end cheeks have some dings and nicks on them. If you need further images or video please don't hesitate to message me and I'll send them on to you.

Switchable (stock) PSU so can run both 120 and 240 V."
