Sequential Circuits Pro One Circuit Board with Mushrooms, Shiva & CEM 3340, 3320 & 3310 Chips

Rev 1.2 circuit board via this auction

I've seen the mushrooms and Shiva before, but I do not recall the writing on the digital interface card before. Anyone know what it says?

"The CEM chips are as follows:

Three (3) CEM3340's, one each for the synthesizers two VCOs - Voltage Controlled Oscillators, with the third (white dot version) for the LFO - Low frequency Oscillator.

One (1) CEM3320 Voltage Controlled Filter. As installed in the Pro One this part is configured as a 24dB Low Pass Filter for that classic synth performance. However, the CEM3320 itself is far more versatile on its own. According to that data sheet it can be configured as a low pass, hi pass, band pass or all pass filter and it has voltage controlled resonance!

Two (2) CEM2210 Voltage Controlled Envelope Generators - VCADSR's. In the Pro One, one of these is used to modulate the VCF cutoff and the other controls that final output level from the Voltage Controlled Amplifier - VCA . By the way, the VCA is one-half of a CA3280 dual Operational Transconductance Amplifier, or OTA, while the other half of this device provides the glide/portamento function.

THE STORY BEHIND THE BOARD: I purchased the Pro One that this board was removed from several years ago here on eBay. The seller stated that he had no way to test it so it was being sold As-Is and that it may not work. He also stated that it has been stored in an unheated outdoor storage shed for a long time. Well, I bought it and guess what? It didn't work or at least it didn't work properly. During my initial testing I discovered that it would not read the keyboard, and you could not program the sequencer leading me to believe that the 8021 microcontroller was shot. I was able to verify that all of the CEM chips performed their intended function when I used an external source for the control voltage and gate except for the fact that the VCO's did not track at 1-volt per octave. Also, to the best of my ability to determine, all the switches, both slide and rotary, as well as all of the pots were working as they should. I later sold the chassis, keyboard and knobs to a friend and I kept the board intending to make a project out of it. I now realize that I never will get around to it and so it's time to let it go. It has been stored in an anti-static ESD safe bag since its removal from the chassis."

Moog Sub Phatty Explorations 3 - Looping Envelopes

Published on Oct 11, 2015 matrixsynth

Set to HD for best quality. Listen on good monitors or headphones and turn it up.

The Moog Sub Phatty has a little trick up its sleeves that was missing on the Voyager and Little Phatty: loopable envelopes. You have to enable them via the software editor for the Sub Phatty. For those not familiar with loopable envelops, they pretty much are what they sound like. Envelopes on most synths end after the Release stage. A loopable or looping envelope goes back to the Attack stage and repeats for as long as you hold a note down. You can essentially use it as an LFO with four stages of variable time. In this video I start with the Release stage set full so you hear the Sub Phatty being played as normal. I then bring back the Release and you can hear the envelop clearly loop. In this video I played with the VCA envelope. You'll note a few sweet spots. Note when the envelop repeats at a very high rate the pitch does not track as you might expect (it does track with the filter as seen here). It's still a great effect. The signal starts dry and I later add some reverb and phaser at 1:30.

Side note: see if you can spot the three synths in the background.

All parts here, including a demo of looping envelopes applied to the filter.

Basses, leads, gorgeous pads, soundscapes, strings, drums, and arpeggios. The System-1 can do it all well so just sit back and chill to these compelling sounds. This video is just a short preview of selected sounds.

Make sure to BACKUP all your patches safely before loading. Refer the Roland documentation for how to do this. MIDI Sysex transfer methods DO NOT apply to the System-1. It has to be done over USB using the Roland proprietary file transfer protocol. These patches should work for operating system v. 1.20 and on the System-1m module as well. There are 63 patches in all, the last patch in Bank-8 slot-8 is a blank patch.

Opening and demo themes are from my track Superfalling on Soundcloud Thanks for watching. If you enjoyed this video sure to subscribe, like and comment."

Normally, if someone present you the sounds of a new Synthesizer, he will show you Bass and Leads sounds but here I want to show that the power of Strobe 2 is also available in other ways such as modular sounds. This modular sounds are deep and a rich of modulation activity.

"Strobe2 is a software polysynth which puts diverse new sounds effortlessly within your reach. It builds on the original's realistic analogue modelling and deep but intuitive synthesis with a slew of enhancements and requested features. Highlights include a stunning effects section, revamped arpeggiator, deeper modulation processing, preset-morphing, randomizing and a scalable vector interface for retina and 4K displays."

With over 900 Presets, Strobe 2 offers you a lot of pre-designed patches ready to play.

The Triko Analog Tri-Chorus by Baloran Demo

The Triko by Baloran Part I Published on Oct 11, 2015 Pulsophonic

"The test of the analog tri-chorus The Triko by Baloran."

Googlish from French:

"Based on discrete analog components, The Triko brings the characteristic sound of vintage overall effects in the conciliatory modern digital world. The result, in addition to high sound quality found, briefs and Midi controls in real time ... the best of both worlds!

- Three chorus circuits made entirely of high quality discrete components (Maxim Dallas, Texas, Wima, Nichicon, That ...)
- Modulation and settings for each independent circuit or related
- Feedback circuit on the central chorus to turn it into Flanger
- High-quality audio from A to Z, with final mixing stage (level and pan "Effect" and "Dry")
- Exemplary ergonomics, with a control panel designed for quick access to all parameters (8 illuminated buttons, screen 2x16 characters, 3 encoders)
- 8 banks of 16 slots to store all settings, including 8 favorites directly accessible
- Bypass function by key combination or Midi CC
- Professional Connections: balanced stereo XLR, unbalanced stereo output jack 6.35, 8 pre-mixer line-level input jack 6.35, with individual levels and panning, Midi In and Out / Thru
- Full implementation via Midi CC, NRPN and Program Change: The Triko is fully controllable by STAN or hardware controllers
- Dynamic control parameters by the level of the sound signal or via Midi (wheel, velocity, aftertouch)
- Internal slot for daughter card to add additional insert effects (delay / echo, reverb)
- Solidly built, with universal internal power
- Designed and assembled in France
- Frequency response: 20 Hz - 20 kHz + - 2db
- Rack 19 "- 1U, depth 350 mm
- Weight: 4 kg - 8.8 lbs

Map FV-1
VF-1 card is the first card girl for The Triko. It brings the echo and reverb effects. Mixing a digital heart very musical and analog routing, it provides even greater dimension Triko.

Echo: Compared with a venerable tape echo (Space Echo), we have successfully implemented in the VF-1 algorithms and modulations that bring us close to his model: the modulation Tape recording is a real wow his model. Thanks to the adjustment of the amplitude modulation and speed, you can simulate tape echoes in perfect condition as copies at very tired capstan: D. Reinjection allows up to self-oscillation and even beyond. In mode 0, filtering occurs on repetition to approach the changes of timbre obtained on his illustrious model. A second virtual playhead whose period is half that of the main head ends enrich this emulation. A "Ping Pong" mode and a "Clean" mode are also available.

The reverberations: Our objective was not to offer the finest and most complex reverb sets. We're not able;) But we worked on ergonomics, musicality and originality of the reverberations produced: filtering, modulation, pre-delay feedback and allow visitors to explore the original reverberation universe with simplified settings .
FV-1 does not allow to have both features simultaneously."

"In this round we pit the other Akai animal, the Rhythm Wolf, against the new comer the Arturia Drumbrute. Peak levels have been matched with appropriate room for gain during tweaking of the drum parameters. The Rhythm Wolf will play for one bar, then the Drumbrute will play a bar. I hope this helps you in choosing the best analog drum machine for your studio."

"The new Akai Tom Cat and Korg Volca Beats are a well suited match against each other. Both have analog Kick, Snare, Hat & Tom sounds. The Beats has even more sounds from PCM samples, but the Cat has a much more feature rich sequencer. The Beats is a great portable machine, while the Cat has a lot more pro features. When it comes down to it though, each person must deicide for themselves which one is better for them. Thanks for Watching!"
