Yamaha GX-1 a snippet , mobile phone audio

Published on Sep 11, 2015 MrFirechild

"I was personally invited by my favorite music store to see , smell, feel ,play and fall in love with THE most rare ,most expensive , most beautiful sounding synthesizer ever created in the universe. The Yamaha GX-1 a forerunner to the little tiny flyweight baby brother , the Yamaha CS-80. The GX-1 in the video is restored in a genius way by the most excellent service tech in the world Ulf Söderlund. With 4 brand new external power supplies the hum and noise from the audio outputs are totally gone. The oscillators pitch are so good you really need to use the random detune feature to not think you are playing a plugin ;) Did I buy it ? No ! It lacked the 3 Auto rhythm voice cards ! Bummer ! Kidding aside, it was of course not for sale but the rhythm voice cards were actually removed back in the early 80´s to eliminate every little thing to make it more stable in recording and live situations due to underpowered original power supply. Yamaha GX-1 what a huge monument in the history of earth. It should be up there with the other seven wonders of the world !"

Waldorf Microwave

Published on Apr 3, 2015 MrFirechild

"The Waldorf Microwave from 1989 is based on the same concept as the mighty PPG Wave wavetable synthesizers. Digital wavetables combined with analog filters. This Firechild track Microwaves is using sounds only from the Microwave."

This is a re-upload of a previous video , now with a better audio mix.
Track is also known as Eldhjärta."

Helsingland - Yamaha CS-80

Published on Apr 15, 2015 MrFirechild

"A track made on analog synthesizers , trying to capture the vibe and magic from the hills and forests of Hälsingland , a part of Sweden. The track Helsingland is included on the Firechild album Fireheart (2015)."

There’s still some mileage in this old and crusty Yamaha budget sampler.

ARP 1601 clone + TTSH (ARP 2600 clone) demo

Published on Sep 13, 2015 der oberling

"I recently finished the ARP 1601 clone build and before building a case for it I made a video demonstrating it playing some sequences.

When changing the overall pitch of the sequence this is done by my minibrute - also like the wavetable example in the last third of the video (sequence played by the minibrute).

Arp 2600 vs TTSH

Published on May 21, 2015 Dane Petrich

"This is my Arp 2600 vs TTSH Arp Clone. It's as simple as I could make it. All the audio was recorded into Pro Tools HD at 48k and I used the gain plugin to even all gain to -3db. The TTSH is about +12DB's hotter in my AVID PRE. I'm sorry for the bad editing, this is my 1st time using a video editor."

Next! SUPERBASS 4.4 Analog Synthesizer TB-303 Clone

via this auction

"This slick single VCO Monophonic Analog Synth was part of the TB-303 'Clone Wars' in the 90's. This is in the same family as the FreeBass 383 and MB 33. Controls are Autoslide, Saw or Square Waveform, Mix with Sub, ENV PWM, Cutoff, Resonance, EnvMod, Accent, Decay, Distortion and Master Volume. It has a On/Off switch, VCF in, Midi in, out and thru. 7 knobs will transmit MIDI cc data. This was handy as I had this mounted above my MPC 2000XL on a bracket and could 'Over Dub' and create some nice motion. All knobs work fine, no scratchy pots. There is some Rack Rash though. Original Power Supply included. I do own a TB-303 and will say this can hold it's own and has more sonic possibilities, more than my FreeBass too."

via this auction QKB15 Keyboard controller

via this auction

"There's four different modes of operation. The split and dual voice modes send two pitch and two gate signals independently. Split can move from one to two octaves. Midi in translates midi data as a midi to cv converter offering cv, gate, trigger, and velocity and midi out sends the same 4 midi data played by the keyboard. Damage on wood end cap which was a slight crack in the wood but it was glued and is structurally solid."

Moog Polymoog 203A synthesizer complete with road case & pedals

via this auction

"The Polymoog (model 203a) is a fully polyphonic preset-based synthesizer released in 1975. Its eight preset sounds consist of Strings, Piano, Organ, Harpsichord, Funk, Clavi, Vibes and Brass. There is also a Var (Variation) mode that allows any one of the preset sounds to be fully modified into unique and wild analog sounds using all of the available synthesis parameters on board. There’s a genuine Moog ladder filter inside with modulation, keyboard tracking and lots of LFO modulation sources. The Polymoog features a full 71-key, velocity sensitive Pratt & Read weighted keyboard that can be split into three sections, each with independent volume sliders. There is a 3-band EQ, sample-and-hold, pitch controller ribbon and a full set of envelope controls."

Minimoog Model D Serial# 5699

via this auction

via the seller: "This Minimoog Model D is truly a rare find. Built in 1976, Serial Number 5699. I have owned this unit for well over 30 years. Very light use, and extremely well taken care of. ALL switches, dials, controls are fully functional and have ZERO static. The three oscillators are in perfect condition and well tuned. All waveforms are perfect. Glide, decay, sustain, cutoff frequency, filter emphasis all sound like a dream. Pitch and Mod wheels are a clear lucite material. This unit is fully functional and is in great condition. However, it does have two issues. One cosmetic (the very edges of B3 and C3 keys have a very small chip on the surface,), the other electronic (keys G3-C4 have an intermittent issue where they sometimes all play the same pitch as G3.). Both issues can be easily corrected by servicing the unit. I am not an electrical engineer so I didn't feel I could fix it myself. The asking price has been reduced by $500 to compensate for the cost of the repairs to the unit if desired. Other than those two minor issues, the unit is in fantastic condition. SUPER CLEAN control panel and the wood cabinet is intact with not a scratch on it. The winning bidder will own one of the best preserved original Minimoogs available today."

Blip Synth Intro (Meeblip album Intro)

Published on Sep 27, 2015 MEGASYNTH1

"Set the video to 720 for maximum sound/video quality.
This is an introduction to a mini album (Blip Synth) exclusively using the Meeblip SE as a sound source aside from the drums and simple effects. The album will be released winter 2015.

I wanted to show people that digital synths are very unique and all have their own sound. The Meeblip Se is an 8 Bit Digital synth with a very aggressive, gritty, and constantly surprising sound. I was able to get it to produce many motifs of modern electronic music and even some throw backs from the past. The album was made in Reason syncing the Meeblip Se to the programs sequencer. Basic effects were used like EQ, Distortion, Reverb, Delay and Vocoding.

I am releasing this album under my moniker "Sequencer" keep an eye out for a new Sequencer, non Meeblip affiliated, album coming out soon. I produce all art and music.
