Here I show modulation of the SPREAD and DELAY as well as the REGEN amounts."

4ms - Spectral Multiband Resonator (SMR) - First Patch

Published on Sep 4, 2015 DivKidMusic

"Not fully had chance to get into this (rest assured a full overview video is coming as soon as I get chance) but this was the first patch I made when it arrived. Noise as the input from the Erica Synths Digital Noise then some basic modulation (slewed sample and hold and some LFOs) into the SMR then onto Clouds from Mutable Instruments to process the module. I mix Clouds in part way through the video and then go 100% wet with Clouds before backing the mix off and bringing the dry SMR sound back in.

Connects to analogue equipment via CV/GATE. Perfect for the modular synth fanatic!"

the SPACE CASE tape echo

1. SPACE CASE Tape Echo Demo Series - 3 - SYNTHS - Arpeggiation Character and Oscillation (Roland SH-101)
2. SPACE CASE Tape Echo Demo Series - 2 - DRUM MACHINES - Feedback Rhythms from Spaced Hits (brand new 808 and 909 samples by the venerable Samples from Mars in Brooklyn NY)
3. SPACE CASE Tape Echo Demo Series - 1 - VOCALS - Traditional Use and Explorations (Bob Marley solo vocal)

"The Space Case is a new tape echo for the modern vintage workflow. Each is hand made in limited batches in New York at The Center for Memory and Control. The machine operates at line level, and the sound can be described as being a combination between the original slap machines hooked up to consoles in the 50's (the original echo invention) and the classic Hi-Z devices from the 60's and 70's. It is inherently well suited for things like synthesizers, drum machines, and other unbalanced line level musical instruments and equipment. Hi-Z/Guitar and Balanced Line connectivity can be added (see features).

- Six time ranges
- a line level insert TRS jack for adding external processing of the echo/feedback path (i.e. using a synth or any other device to add resonance, more eq, and any other shaping you want)
- A time adjust knob for a wide sweep within each range
- Powerful feedback with plenty of self oscillation
- Echo tone
- Independent echo and dry output level
- Opamp overdrive at the output stage that can be applied to dry, echo, or any blend of both. (you can use the machine as a distortion unit with no tape/echo involved)
- Classic "playback and record" operation with speed differences. The machine is designed to be able to go down to near dead stop, so one can create extreme changes in analog tape fidelity and timing by recording at one speed and playing back in another. Feedback, tone, and speed/time can be performed live and recorded/played back with further tone and speed changes.
- A small loud speaker that is driven by the same opamp overdrive, effectively giving you a small but saturated and strong sounding "guitar amp" with whatever signal you're using
- A VU meter!
- 1/4" TS in and out
- Optional HI-Z/Guitar/Instr breakout pedal with a Crimson transformer, true bypass footswitch and a bonus DI function
- Optional transformer balanced XLR Line I/O with two Crimson transformers"

KiNK / Aira Modular / TR-8 / Rhodes

Published on Sep 3, 2015 kink303

"KiNK session with Roland AIRA modular (Torcido, Scooper), TR-8 and a Rhodes piano. I use Torcido as a preamp and tremollo effect on the Rhodes, also as a modulation source for Scooper. I use Scooper as looper / sampler, I trigger Scooper`s sample start and Torcido`s LFO reset with TR-8`s rim shot. Rhodes piano as a sound source, drums - TR-8. Here are the modification files for both modules, if you want to use them like me:"

"Up for auction is an awesome, professionally maintained original EMS 2000 Vocoder System. Original Owner. Looks sharp and in perfect working order, there is some scratches from being in the rack (see pictures). Designed by Tim Orr and Robin at EMS, made personally for one of my U.S. studios well over 2 decades ago. It has a standard U.S. AC cord, a conversion that will cost a pretty penny on imported Euro units, and the import/customs/etc. cost over $1000 U.S. dollars even decades ago. They aren't made anymore and the EMS Vocoder 2000 is the best vocoder period. An awesome effect to have in your arsenal right now.

Vocoders were originally used to encode a voice to be transmitted over distance, having military tech functions... the compression and encoding of your signal and the synthesis. Essentially, a voice is compressed and encoded, then a new voice is synthesized. You can combine your signals with a keyboard/instrument or use the independent excitation mode to use the EMS Vocoder 2000 as a stand alone processor. With 16 analyzing and 16 synthesizing filters the EMS Vocoder 2000 has clarity and distinction in the processing that you WILL NOT find in plug ins or other Vocoders. Nice fat lows and mid range mix great with guitars and other synths. The EMS Vocoder 2000 is renowned for it's use in the show Battlestar Galactica as well as by Pink Floyd. Distinctive analog processing used by sonically renowned artists.

The coolest thing about this EMS Vocoder is you can design your own effects that are hard for others to duplicate. Bored of out of the box production and effects, the EMS Vocoder 2000 is the solution.

It cost almost $7000 decades ago to get this very special EMS Vocoder 2000 in my studio. It has been professionally maintained and otherwise safely racked in a professional studio since the 80's and is as mint as you will find.
If the price is too high, then you don't get what an EMS Vocoder can do.

Included in the auction are (1) EMS Vocoder 2000, Original EMS Manual, and AC cord."

"The CS-30 is a large, knob infested, analog synthesizer with masses of features. It is a monophonic synth with two oscillators with separate outputs, two multimode resonant filters, two VCAs, two multi waveform LFOs and three envelopes. It also features a ring modulator, external audio triggering and an excellent 8-step sequencer."

MFB OSC-3 Triple VCO (demo)

Published on Sep 3, 2015 Organzoner

"Quick Demo and patch with MFB OSC-3 Triple VCO. The Sync mode and mixed output could be explored further, also I ran the signal through an alesis 3632 compressor so its not entirely raw . I cut a hole in the side of my synth case for this little guy and it was well worth it. Works well with the MAQ 16/3. Drums are from Korg EMX. Used SOB, Pittsburgh Modular, and Wasp filters in patch sequence."
