Oakley SVF Oberheim SEM OB-X Filter in Frac Format

via this auction

"Here's the Oakley SVF Oberheim SEM OB-X filter. Oakley sound is one of the best, and this module is in perfect working order. In addition to having the two unit controls and inputs/outputs (tons of control - way more than other clones), it has a modified resonance control (the big knob selector) that allows the user to set different resonance characteristics to the filter. I did not build this but it has been rock solid for me.

Visit the Oakley site to learn more."

Ring Modulator

I believe this was built from a kit, all sub-modules are original aside from the single VCA which I had made recently

please note there is no nomenclature on the front panels, I've had various quotes to remedy this, not very expensive at all, alternatively you could have the modules rehoused into traditional Emu factory modules, this was my plan for the system long term but due to other projects I'm having to part it out.

issues -

Universal Active Filter module and single VCA are currently non working

I will supply a new VCA submodule and a spare original UAF submodule (this has no pins on it but its also unpotted meaning it can potentially fixed easily if it has issues) I'm guessing there is a fault on the VCA PCB, should be an easy fix for a competent tech

everything else works fine and was recently serviced in the US.

The system has several resonant filters and another dual VCA so it currently operates as a complete synthesizer,

120V model, come with 240V stepdown transformer for use in Europe

please note - 2 of the black plastic sub-module covers went missing while at service so will not be supplied"

The Harvestman Black Locust 4-channel Guitar Adapter for Eurorack Now Available

via @analoguezone

"Black Locust is a 4-channel guitar effects pedal adaptor for your synthesizer.

This module is a re-release of the old, hand-built “STILTON ADAPTOR” module with a smaller panel size (16HP) and more expansion options.

Using a compact arrangement of TRS insert sockets (cables not included), Black Locust properly attenuates and amplifies signals to incorporate your guitar effects into the modular system. A return gain control and a wet/dry mix knob condition the effected signal for maximum utility in a modular context. Instruments such as electric guitars and basses can also be patched directly into the module.

Black Locust is the first of three modules in the FEEDBACK CONSOLE series. With no external input signals, the four pedals can operate in a closed feedback loop, self-generating audio signals that are impossible to directly control - only influence.

This module is a gateway to this highly experimental patching technique. Further modules in the FEEDBACK CONSOLE series include a matrix mixer and programmable quad VCA/envelope follower/signal router, each designed to expand the Black Locust for deeper exploration of the feedback technique.

You will quickly discover sounds that you will never hear again."

"Korg MS-20 vintage analog monosynthesizer monosynth synthesizer synth OLD FILTER

This synth has been recently cleaned and calibrated. Has a small corrosion spot in the finish on the bottom. Whatever happened there long ago, didn't seem to affect anything on the inside. Overall fair condition. Sounds and plays great. This is the older filter design of the two used in the MS-20. This is an original 117V North American model."

Logan Piano Strings Analog Synth

via this auction

"Wonderful rich analogue string synth, very rare.

Unfortunately it has one broken voice card, this means some of the keys don't sound if the card becomes loose, I have managed to hold it temporarily in which is allowing all keys to sound, however it will need to be secured properly if you are going to gig this.

A great retro, thing with a lush, lush sound ...."

Oberheim OB-Xa Analog Synthesizer SN 820505

via this auction

"Oberheim OB-Xa in excellent physical condition:

- Latest firmware revision "G" installed and original factory patches uploaded.

- Powers on and fully functional with the only known issue being that under the Filter for OSC 2, the HALF button is not fully functional. No response from the button when depressed. The LED above the button will no illuminate. The HALF function does operate correctly when a factory patch setting is selected which in turn illuminates the LED and depressing the HALF button will turn off the HALF selection and extinguish the LED. However again pressing the HALF button will not allow re-selection of the setting nor again illuminate the LED above the button.

- All 8 voice boards were recapped with new electrolytics a few years ago. Instrument powers on and autotune functions properly to tune voice boards.

- New key bushings were also installed a few years ago. Keys are nice and soft when depressed, not clunky."

Roland JP-08 Filter Acid Test

Published on Nov 10, 2015 Synthbug

"Just a test, don't take this too seriously.

Notes sequenced by the JD-Xi, drums from the JD-Xi. Lead acid line by the JP-08.

This is just a test running the JP-08 through various filter cutoff positions along with different positions of envelope amount, different ADSR settings and different resonance settings. I like Acid and was doing this to see what kind of TB-303 type sounds I could get from the JP-08."

Roland SYSTEM-1 Plug-In/Out Synthesizer - Part 1

Published on Nov 10, 2015 Synth Anatomy

"This the first part of the sound review of the Roland SYSTEM-1 Plugin Synthesizer. You hear correctly, a software plug-in Synthesizer based on the hardware Synthesizer SYSTEM-1. The plug-in version of SYSTEM-1 offers you the same technology and sound possibilities as the Plug-Out Synthesizer.

For this tests, I connected my SYSTEM-1 Plug-out Synthesizer in my DAW to get an USB Controller for this plug-in.

The impressions from this Part 1 is a bit special. Optical, the SYSTEM-1 Hardware and Software Synthesizer are not the beautiful products on the market and they polarize a lot the market. Some people doesn't love the look other one absolutely. Also the keyboard feeling on the SYSTEM-1 Hardware isn't good.

On the other, you get an great sounding product with a lot of sound possibilities, many waveforms and other great features like cross-modulation. Also the usability is great with many knobs.

I must say that the SYSTEM-1 is a great sounding "green product", with a big plus for usability but with some optical minus points.

I hope to test for you also all other Roland plug-out/in Synthesizer available on the market.
