Roland System-500 Analog Modules by Malekko - Final Production Prototypes - World Premier

Published on Sep 19, 2015 Genshi Media Group

"This is an uncut, rough video of an event I attended earlier today which was the world premier of the final production prototypes of the Roland System-500 eurorack analog modules, made by Malekko Heavy Industry in Portland Oregon. The presentation is by the creator himself, Joshua Holly of Malekko. It's an almost 30 minute video from a bad angle and I wasn't able to get a direct audio feed, but it still sounds pretty good and has lot's of good info regarding these modules (they're nicer than I expected, to be honest.)"

Synth Jam with Triggered CS-10, Korg DSS-1

"Feeding the TR-626 into the EXT IN jack of the CS-10 to trigger the keyboard and modulate the drum sounds."

New Mini Roland JP-08 Image Leaked

Update: new post with all three new Roland Boutique synths here.

Rumor is it will run $300.

Follow-up to this post.

One of the three upcoming Roland Boutique Mini synths. This one clearly modeled on the classic Roland Jupiter-8.

Looks like fun to me!


Update: below is the front panel of a Jupiter-8 from this post, so we can compare them.

- The LFO on the new JP-8 has additional waveforms.
- VCO-1 Range has additional 16 and 32 settings.
- VCO-1 has additional waveforms but appears to lose the triangle waveform for two sinewaves.
- VCO-2 Range extends from 16 to 64.
- VCO-2 Waveforms match VCO-1 but instead of noise there appears to be something else.
- On the JP-08 the two ENV Key Follows are moved to one switch with the four possible combinations of key follow for both envelopes, ENV-1 only, ENV-2 only, or Off.
- The arpeggiator on the Jupiter-8 appears to have been replaced with a sequencer on the JP-08.
- There are two Poly modes on the Jupiter-8. The JP-08 has one Poly button. Not sure if both modes are supported.
- The lower and upper hold buttons are absent from the JP-08.
- The JP-08 is missing the master Volume, Balance, and Master Tune knobs. Curious how you adjust volume on it - the VCA Level slider?
- The JP-08 adds two touch strips.

Everything else pretty much looks spot on.

Vermona DRM1 MKIII Analog Drum Synthesizer SN D 09658

via this auction

" Vermona DRM1 MKIII analog drum synthesizer with original box and manual. 8 channels of drum sounds with individual and mix outputs. Midi controlled.

Info from Vermona:
The DRM1 MKIII is an analogue drum synthesizer.

It offers eight instruments, each with seven knobs for forming the sound plus a panorama- and a volume-controller. The user interface is absolutely clear and intuitive - one knob, one function.

The instruments on the DRM1 MKII are as following:

Mainly but not only for making big and fat kick drums.
Very flexible instruments that can generate kick- and tom sounds a s well as bongos. Anything from zapp to bling and fantastic PIUU...
Three oscillators can be detuned and gives you nice cowbell-like sounds. If you like submarines you can create a nice sonar ping.
What can we say about that? Well, you get what you expect.
Hi Hat1 and Hi Hat2
That's analogue (heavy- or soft-) metal.
Classic analogue hand claps.
The instruments of the DRM1 MKIII can be triggered by MIDI (of course velocity-sensitive). Beside the main outputs each channel is equipped with an individual output that also can be used as an channel insert.

This is an amazing analog drum synth. I sequenced this with a Korg ER-1 which worked very well. Works equally well with software sequencers and other MIDI sequencers."

"Can't stop loving this analog beast. Can't stop sharing the love.
Here's a rather grungy loop that almost sounds like a guitar with distortion, all via the Leipzig-s. Slight spring verb and delay added. Key control via the Akai MPK61."

Roland JD-XA // Factory Presets // BANK A

Published on Sep 19, 2015 LESINDES

"Testing the presets of brandnew ROLAND JD-XA. BANK A.
Using arpeggios and preset sequences if there are any preprogrammed. Tweaking occasionally. JD-XA does not contain any drum kits as its smaller and cheaper sibling is providing. If there are any drums to be heard they're mostly programmed from scratch with the internal sound engines -- both digital and analog."

This one was previously listed back in June. New pics in this listing. Curious about the Paris Opera and what performances it might have been used in. If anyone knows, feel free to comment.

"This is a vintage EMS SYNTHI AKS in very good condition. It's extremely clean for its age, both inside and outside. Same owner since 1974. Originally from the Paris Opera. It has been stored safely indoors for many years since. It was tested yesterday. Everything seems to work well: the oscillators, rind mod, filters, reverb, external ins, etc. We can't find the keyboard cable, so I couldn't test that. I have a source for a replacement cable from the UK. I will include the power cord, and a copy of the manual."
