Synths in the Jungle (Siel DK​-​600)

"Here we have the first in the series of 'SYNTHMAN'. The SYNTHMAN instrumentals are basically meant to be dedicated synthesizer demos. 'Dedicated' in terms of only one synth being utilized for the piece. (not including drums & percussion parts)

For this first piece, I have exclusively used the rare and obscure Italian-made analog DCO synth, the SIEL DK-600.

The DK-600 was released in 1984 and featured two DCO's and 6 analog voices paired with SSM filter chips (yay!) and envelopes.

This synth also sported 3 lfo's, and PWM.

Reportedly only about 2,000 of them were made.

Stay tuned for more SYNTHMAN demos of other synths at Spazzoid Studio, NYC.
from "Synth Adventures", released October 27, 2015
Composed, Produced, Performed, & Arranged by REENO @ Spazzoid Studio, NYC."

Tonnetz Sequent as a Modulation Source

Published on Oct 27, 2015 noisythang

"I am old. My hand shakes, my vision blurs. Sorry.
What is this Tonnetz? It generates triads rotating through a triadic space.
But are these not just voltages? Can’t we use these voltage patterns in ways other than pitch? Voltages that rotate? Let’s try a little rotation.
Maybe a little spreading. Is there a repeating pattern? In the end we use one for pitch.
Tonnetz Sequent clocked by Circuit Abby G8
4ms rotating filter kicked by a couple of triggers.
Tonnetz controlling rotation, spread and frequency."

"Saw Wave Through All Three Filters"

Korg Sigma KP-30 SN 242406

via this auction

Don't lift the synth by that "handle". I'm guessing it's to support sheet music.

"Up for sale is a (1) vintage Korg Sigma KP-30 synthesizer, made in 1979. It's one of the 1000 units ever made. A very interesting synth for leads. You can layer the preset sounds and it has lots of modulation possibilities. With the two joysticks you can control the LP / HP filters, pitch, noise and vibrato. The synth is in good working condition. Optical in very nice condition too with only some little wear and tear on the wooden sides and some minor scratches on it (see photo's). It's an original 220V version with European plug and the serial number is: 242406."

Rebel Technology - OWL

Published on Oct 27, 2015 DivKidMusic

"The potential for this thing is immense! Way too many patches already in the default banks for one video but you've got a simple 5 bank (A B C D E) system with 8 patches in each bank. The OWL can compile Pure Data patches and has a hefty processor capable of some great high quality FX and sound generators. With such an open platform lots of new patches and developments are underway so I'll no doubt follow up this video with another to demo some future patches too. So for now I've cherry picked a few patches to go through in this video."

Brooklyn Synth Expo 2015 Set for November 7 - 8

"The Brooklyn Synth Expo is an event organized by The Deli NYC, an independent blog and printed magazine, active since 2004, which is entirely focused on emerging NYC musical artists and music gear. The Deli also organizes a similar event for guitar pedal fans, called the Stompbox Exhibit, both in Brooklyn and at SXSW in Austin.

Once again the Synth Expo will be hosted by Williamsburg's independent musical instrument store Main Drag Music, on the weekend of November 7-8, 2015.


- Extensive list of large format synth manufacturers are participating, including up and coming companies like Elektron and Radikal - see the full list here.

- Roger Linn will demo his new Midi controller in person.

- Thousands of dollars in synth giveaways by DSI, Roland, Arturia, Novation and Radikal Technologies.

- Novation and Roland will be presenting their new products (Circuit and Boutique)

- Three Wave Music will be present with a selection of vintage synths

The event is synchronized with the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, with whom we are collaborating on some synth panels TBA.

You'll find full details here.

The primary mission of The Deli has always been to support and cover emerging local artists. The Brooklyn Synth Expo is seen as an opportunity to give back to its readers through a fun event that allows them to discover new toys, try the latest products by more and less established manufacturers, and interact directly with them through their reps."
