Dave Smith Instruments Prophet '08: Drawbar Organ

Published on Aug 31, 2015 Sacred Synthesis

"This improvisation is meant to demonstrate the ability of the Prophet '08 to imitate the sound of a drawbar organ. The PWM solo was played on a second P'08.

In general, I've never been a fan of the Hammond Organ sound. There are only a few drawbar settings that I like, and this patch is an imitation of one of them. But the truth is, the classic Hammond/drawbar organ sound requires a Leslie effect. Mere detuning is a lame substitute.

Good organ playing requires an exacting technique. Because of the nature of the instrument's envelope - having a sharp attack and an immediate release - it's essential that notes played together be struck exactly at the same instant. Sad to say, I find that synthesizer keyboards do not meet the quality necessary so that such a precise attack can always be made. This is true for the Prophet '08 and Poly Evolver Keyboard as well. I've noticed many times, especially when playing hymns or Bach chorales, that it's nearly impossible to get the attacks of the notes to be crisp and clean, even with repeated tries of the same passages. The same is true for this piece. There are many instances when the strikes of simultaneous notes are not together, creating a smearing effect. That's my disclaimer. There are many imperfections in this improvisation.

Oberheim 2 Voice TVS-1 Analog Synthesizer with Sequencer

via this auction

"The Synth is in very good physical condition as can be seen in the first picture

Keyboard feels good but a few bushings might need to be replaced

The left Voice module is receiving signals but does not output any sound

The right Voice module is functioning properly, filter is functioning properly

All the keys work, all the switches and knobs work (except for left voice module)

The sequencer works, all 8 steps

Even with one voice this thing sounds great

Functions that require the second voice module cant be tested"

THE JD-Xi may not be everybody's cup of tea! but for me the sounds are very good plus you get a selection of Roland's legendary drum machine's included,which i wasn't expecting, also in the vid there's no mixer and all units are going straight through to the JD Xi input, using its on board effect :)"

X1L3 - circuit bent casio PT-82 and yamaha DD-7 doing NIN

Published on Aug 31, 2015 manufacturedZ3R0 .

"Two birds with one stone.

I wanted to demo the gate out on the DD7 and do a musical run on the PT before i got down to making some evil noise with it. Turns out i could do both at once since i needed the pro one for the cv on the pt 82's filter. And what better to drive it than another bent bit of gear.

So here it is, the dd7 is hooked up to reason which is triggering the drums and driving the gate. The gate out on the dd7 is driving the pro one sequencer which is then outputting control voltage to the cv in on the pt82 to animate the filter cutoff. And i'm just doing the usual lofi nine inch nails cover thing i'm so keen on when it comes to youtube jamming.

I'm using the drone distortion and filter mostly on the pt. Cranking the resonance to max to add definition to the cv sequencing. You can hear it chirping away to itself at the end. The delay was set up before the track to give a syncopated echo and kicks in a little way in to add an air of ambience to the keys."

Update: After hitting play, set the quality to HD under the player settings wheel on the right.
Also, apologies for the slight overdrives at 1:33, 2:35 and 3:07. I corrected them as I caught them while playing.

Set to HD for best quality.

This video is a bit long for what it is, but there are some sweat spots so I went ahead and uploaded it. The SUB PHATTY is being sequenced by StepPolyArp on an original iPad. One sequence throughout. Dry signal up to 1:42 and then liberal effects - mainly reverb & phaser. As always, just tweaking and exploring sound. Think of these more like enjoying flavors of sound rather than compositions of music. A bit like sonic wine tasting! :) Remember to set it to HD otherwise your will be denying your sonic palate!

Published on Aug 31, 2015 EXPLORING AUDIO

"The Yamaha DX7 is one of the most popular synthesizers of all time and, if you can learn how to program it, it's easy to see why. In this video, I take you through the process of replacing the internal battery. The DX7 uses a 3v battery to store all of your presets and when that starts to die, you'll lose all of your patches and it can appear that the synth is broken. Fear not! This is one of the simplest and cheapest repairs there is.

Roland SH-101 with Nova Mods

via this auction

"This SH-101 has the legendary Nova mods installed which add a lot of new functionality to the 101! The features are:

LFO speed range is now much increased with a 3 way toggle switch for low/normal/high settings. Great Filter FM effects are now possible using the LFO.

External audio input has been added and you can route audio in and process with the filter OR external audio source can be used to FM the filter (depending on the FM - VCF switch at the back, see pics).

Other features include a Drive pot used for driving the filter input harder for a more saturated over driven sound (at lowest setting it is the normal Sh101 sound).

PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) can now use all the available LFO waveforms, selectable by a pot/switch (not just limited to the triangle waveform as on a normal Sh101) PWM modulation waveform is also completely independent from the main LFO setting (so LFO and PWM can use different waveforms simultaneously)

There are several new 3.5mm jack sockets:

1) CV filter input for external control

2) an audio input to the filter for processing and

3) an LFO trigger input to trigger the LFO from a external source."

Roland Germany JD-XA Poster / Wallpaper

"Der JD-XA ist eine einzigartige Kombination aus analogem und digitalem Synthesizer und besitzt ein sehr hohes Kreativpotenzial. Der analoge Bereich besteht aus vier Parts mit analogen Filtern und einem separaten Ausgang für den Analogsound ohne Effekte. Der digitale Bereich besitzt ebenfalls vier Parts auf Basis von Rolands SuperNATURAL-Klangerzeugung, umfangreiche Effekte und ist kompatibel zu den Klängen von Rolands Top-Soundmodul Integra-7. Beide Klangerzeugungen sind getrennt voneinander und bieten damit eine ideale Plattform für umfangreiches Sound Design – die Fragestellung „analog oder digital“ ist damit Vergangenheit: Die Zukunft liegt in beiden, im JD-XA."
