OTO MACHINES BISCUIT 8 BIT FX PROCESSOR & SYNTH (with DER OTO Overlay)


via this auction

"This is the latest version of the Biscuit which also includes the new "DER OTO" operating system allowing you to transform the Biscuit into a Step Sequencer and Analog style Monosynth at the touch a button - VFM! Formidable!

Add depth, texture and organic behavior to synths, basslines, drum machines and virtual instruments from computers with BISCUIT !

Using true 8-bit converters, digital processing and analog resonant filters, Biscuit opens up a wide range of sounds from harsh distortion, digital and aliasing artifacts to warm and fat 8-bit sounds.
Mute or invert each of the 8 bits of the digital signal by pressing one of the 8 rectangular switches, to generate strong distortions with an intense digital character. Lower the sample frequency down to 250 Hz for aliasing effects and use the multimode analog filter to get a warm and fat sound. You can mix this 8-bit sound with
the direct signal via two separate knobs.

EFFECTS:

Add one of the following 8-bit effects to your bit modifications :

• Waveshaper
• Delay
• Pitchshifter
• Step Filter

Each effect contains one or several parameters to set.

PRESETS:

Save all the BISCUIT functions (bit status, knobs positions, effects and filter settings) to one of its 16 presets.
You can also save as many presets as you like on your computer using the Preset Dump function (MIDI SysEx).


MIDI:

BISCUIT is MIDI compatible.
Every pot, switch and effects setting can be sent or can be controlled by a continuous controller message (known as CC).
BISCUIT accepts MIDI Clock messages to synchronize Delay and Step filter effects.
BISCUIT firmware can be upgraded via a MIDI SysEx file."

"If you like making techno or dark synth stuff this is the module for you. It makes beautiful clangy analog sounds and never gets old. Its a very music box and can even sound like a normal analog synth on its clean square wave setting. It comes with one drum pad but I usually just trigger it from the trigger outs of a drum machine, it can trigger with audio outs as well. This thing sounds absolutely insane, Ive always dreamed of having 4 of these chained up but Im not aphex twin so I must sell this little guy. I have another one that Ive modded for separate cv control over both channels but its not as clean as this one is on the inside. None of the sliders are scratchy and all is working 100% as it should..."

horstronic. Waveslicer Demo


Published on Aug 26, 2015 PianoHorst

"This is a quick demo of the basic functions of my new module, the Waveslicer."

via Muff's

"The Waveslicer can be described as some kind of special waveshaper.
It can cut a wave into slices and move those slices up and down.
It simply does that by adding an offset at a defined point of the wave. This point is the threshold, set by the Pulsewave pot. The amplitude of the offset is set by the Amount pot.
So for example if you have a sinewave of 10Vpp (-5V to +5V) and set a threshold of 2.5V and an amount of 1V, it will add an offset of -1V as long as the wave is above 2.5V.
To make it all symmetric, all that is also happening on the negative half of the wave, which means that in this example you will also have an offset of 1V as long as the wave is below -2.5V.

To make it all a bit more interesting, this is all done twice at the same time, so there are actually two waveslicers working in parralel.
Also, every described parameter is fully voltage controllable with an attentuverter at every CV input.

All that is pretty hard to describe in theory, so I made up a little diagram to explain the functions of the module.
I will also add some videos in the next days which will make it even more clear.

I primarily designed this module as an audio waveshaper but it's DC coupled, so you can also use it for CVs. This can be a lot of fun, for example when mangling LFOs.

I have a working prototype which still needs some finetuning but I think I'm almost there.

Shane of X1L3 was so kind to make a panel for me. The final panel will probably look pretty much the same as in the first picture (thus aluminium colored with black text), but I think this looks nice, too!
If there is enough interest, maybe I can also offer a black panel.

This thread is under construction and I will work on it over the next days and weeks, especially add audio/video demos and stuff like that, but I thought it might be nice to involve you a bit by posting the information I have. So please feel free to tell me what you think about this/ ask questions if there are any confusions (I'm pretty sure there will be confusion, as I don't feel too confident about explaining this module)."

Malcom Cecil Releases iTonto for iOS


iTunes: iTonto - malcolm cecil

"iTONTO the App, documents the Engineering and Design of “TONTO”, The Original New Timbral Orchestra.

DISCLAIMER: iTONTO is not a functional iOS recreation of TONTO.

TONTO is one of the most important innovations in musical history. TONTO is the first synthesizer of popular music and is displayed and described in great detail within the App. This historic instrument, the invention of Grammy winning Malcolm Cecil, helped influence American cultural and musical history and is one of the most recorded instruments of all time.
The App includes detailed photos of the front and back of each panel with drill down and zoom capabilities, circuitry and schematics, personal comments, hand drawn notes in design, and stories about TONTOS history. Collaborations include Steve Wonder, Billy Preston, Gil Scott Heron, Little Feet, Doobie Brothers, George Harrison and The Isley Brothers. TONTO is on over 160 albums including 2 of Rolling Stone’s top 100 best selling albums of all time.

TONTO – The Original New Timbral Orchestra uses the principle of analog subtractive synthesis to create multi-timbral polyphonic sounds.The heart of a subtractive synthesizer is its filter. TONTO has a compliment of fourteen filters: two full MOOG 904 band-pass filters,
two Arp Low Pass filters,
four Oberhiem SEM filters;
two Cecil/Serge dual filters;
one ARP 1040 multi function filter
and one Cecil Custom low pass filter.
It also has 39 oscillators; 22 envelope generators;
18 VCA’s and many more modules,
including processors, sequencers and controllers which can be patched to create at least fourteen discrete “voices” – each with it’s own unique timbral quality and all of which are able to be controlled simultaneously. As its name implies, it is truly an integrated orchestra of new timbres.
Optimized for iPhone 6, IOS 8.0 or better."

Original Minimoog Model D SN 9900


via this auction

"All original components and in working condition. Serial number is 9900. Case is in solid shape, has all keys, switches, wheels and knobs.
The wood case use a little sanding and oil and the contacts can get sticky. The 3 oscillators generally warm up after 10-15 minutes and get loose after 45-60 minutes sustained usage.
Otherwise this Mini MOOG has always been stored in either the studio or in an environmentally controlled storage area and is in remarkable condition.
A great collectible or studio piece with room to increase its value with just a little surface TLC."
