Qu-Bit Eon Demo

Published on Sep 17, 2015 Oren Levy

"Just got my Qu-Bit Eon today. Here's a video running through the features."

Roland TB 303 Devil Fish SN 034

via this auction

This one was listed back in February as DJ Sasha's also mentioned below.

via the seller:

"Please read through the entire description before bidding Up for sale is my Roland TB 303 Devilfish Analog Synthesizer/Sequencer. I bought this about 5 months ago and will be moving abroad in November so wanted to sell off some of my collection. I bought this from a DJ in NY that used to work with DJ Sasha and was told this belonged to him, I have no proof but no reason to doubt the story (just providing this as an interesting point of history and not as a selling point). The synth works great and I haven't had any problems with it. Physically it is in good condition, as can be seen from the pictures there are the usually scuffs on the edges and is in line with the previous 3 TB 303s I have owned.

In addition to the normal TB 303 functionality the Devil Fish modification provides the following potentiometers:

The modifications also provide three switches:

Additional interfacing on the back of the panel is also provided:
Gate, Accent and CV Outputs
Gate in
CV in
Slide in
Accent in
Filter CV in

The model does not have midi but can be synced via din-sync to other electronic instruments or can be played externally through the CV/Gate inputs etc."

Moog Sub Phatty Synth Art by Lucy Eldridge

Another piece by Lucy Eldridge.

It almost looks modular.  Makes you realize all stand alone synths are essentially built from different building blocks joined together.  Modulars add two things - extensive patch points and the ability to mix and match what you want.

KORG PolySix Vintage Analog Programmable Synthesizer SN 390136

"Along with the Roland Juno 6 which appeared almost simultaneously, many people regard PolySix as one of the milestone of first proper programmable polysynths, and still sounding great.

The unit has just been serviced and everything appears to be fully functional, all the keys and buttons and sliders working perfectly. The internal battery has been replaced to a CR2032 lithium battery, and has original factory presets loaded in. All the contacts have been fully cleaned upon servicing, no noticeable scratch noise on the pots and knobs. No signs of battery leakage on the circuit board as pictured."

Input 1 is going through the lowpass filter, modulated by the random out, and input 2 is going through the highpass filter, modulated by the sine out.

Roland Juno 6 with Arp Odyssey and CR 5000 Drum Computer Electronica

Published on Sep 17, 2015 farmyfarm

"Some basic noodling around with the Roland CR-5000 Compu-Rhythm, Juno -6 and the KARp Odyssey. I seem to always use some variation of that ODDY trumpet like detuned saw wave. The expression pedal really helps with the filter. The CR-5000 is so minimalist that you have to get creative with that single output and the separate volumes/fill-in's. It syncs nicely to the Juno-6 and reminds me of how simple songs use to be. They took more creative thought back in the day rather than light up a few colored tabs on Ableton and play along a soft synth while Fruity Loops taps away. The riff is actually from 1981's The Suburbs Music For Boys. Anyways, lots of little bits and pieces....A few mistakes but who cares!"
