Miditure for iPhone Released

You might remember the Miditure videos from this post. The app is now available on iTunes:

Miditure - a MIDI controller for iPhone - Lachlan Mooney


"Miditure is a MIDI controller app for the iPhone, it can be used to control any instruments, apps, software and hardware that accept MIDI input.

Miditure has been designed to exploit the expressive potential offered by 3D Touch capable devices (iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus), but is compatible with older devices as well.

Miditure includes a pad controller for sending MIDI note messages and an XY pad (XYZ pad if used with a 3D Touch capable device) for sending MIDI control change messages.

Each of the nine configurable pads can send from 1-4 notes with velocity, and on 3D Touch capable devices, polyphonic aftertouch.
Velocity can be set to use the devices accelerometer or can be determined from the location of the touch that triggered the pad.

The XY (XYZ) pad can be configured to send control change messages for up to 3 controls per axis.


- Independent polyphonic aftertouch on 3D Touch capable devices (6s and 6s Plus)
- Nine fully configurable pads for sending notes and chords
- Each pad can play from 1-4 notes
- 3 velocity modes: impact (using the accelerometer), position (vertical), and fixed
- 7 velocity curves
- The impact velocity sensitivity can be adjusted


- z input (touch pressure) on 3D Touch capable devices (6s and 6s Plus)
- 3 assignable Control Change outputs per axis; control up to 9 parameters at a time with one finger.
- Adjustable range for each Control Change output.


- Controls apps locally using coreMIDI, or control external software and hardware over Wi-Fi, or by using a compatible interface.
- Save and load configurations


- This is a MIDI controller, not an instrument, it does not make any sound itself.
- The app can use bluetooth MIDI on compatible devices if the connect is established by another app, it does not have the capability to establish the connect itself."

Vintage 1984 Unique DBE Analog DCO Rackmount Synthesizer SN 00175

via this auction

"This is a rare, hybrid, 6 voice synth dating back to 1984. Lived its life in a studio where it was called upon occasionally to make some "Unique" sounds and Synth soundscapes. It sounds a lot like a Oberheim Matrix and you really need to be synth savvy to use it to its full potential."

Roland JP-08 riding the HPF and VCF Cutoff

Published on Nov 21, 2015 exnihilo415

"Couldn't resist. Picked up a Roland JP-08. The YouTube peer pressure was too much. I buckled like a belt.

Made a little 4 bar sequence and rode the HPF and VCF cutoff all the way to grandma's house on default patch 11.

Sounds better than I thought. She's a keeper. Small faders are a bit of a challenge, but my acreage is limited so I'm glad it's compact.

Roland Jupiter 8 Vintage Analog Synthesizer w/Mods SN 171670

via this auction

ROLAND Jupiter 8 12-bit Vintage analog synthesizer in very good playable condition. It sounds INCREDIBLE! Cosmetically very nice with only a few scratches from normal use. A couple of the pots are a bit scratchy sounding when adjusted. I would recommend a general servicing as it has not been serviced in a while.
Rare JLCooper "PATCH 120" three bank memory expansion installed and it works!
DCB connector was installed after purchase (untested)
Flight case included. Pelican "top-load" flight case included with sale
This JP8 was originally owned and purchased new by Chris Rhyne. Chris was the studio and touring keyboardist for Gino Vannelli, Santana and Jean Luc Ponty. Also, it was part of his on screen arsenal of keyboards for his 10 year run as musical director on the Merv Griffin show in the 80's. He told me that he backed up everyone from Streisand to Pavarotti with this incredible synth. Also owned by lead singer of VERY famous rock band that's in the Grammy hall of fame."

Vintage 1978 Muson Synthesizer in Yellow

via this auction

Note the bottom pic is the more common pic. Can't be the lighting can it?

"This is a vintage (1978) Muson Synthesizer toy. It works, but the switches and dials are a little bit scratchy, so the internal electrical connectors will likely need to be cleaned. Some of the colored selector pins are missing, and the purple one does't work, but the rest do. The labels show some slight moisture damage. The box and manual are not included."

Vintage 1978 Muson Synthesizer by Mego Corp. in the Original Box

via this auction

Some pics of the plugs pulled below.

"Up for sale is a Vintage 1978 Muson Synthesizer by Mego Corp. in the Original Box. This is such a fun vintage electronic synthesizer that is still used in studios today that allows you to create endless sounds & rhythms or play simple tunes on the piano type keyboard. This is in great working condition and has been well tested. The unit itself is very clean and shows minimal to no signs of use. The decals are intact & vibrant in color on the battery compartment and along the top of the keys. There is some discoloration from the vintage adhesive (see pictures). All 10 colorful plugs are present including the 'black C plug' which is necessary to have to be sure the synthesizer generates the proper sounds before each use. There is a manual that was found in the box, it looks to me like a photo copy from years ago as this unit is colorful and I would think the manual would reflect the same. It explains your steps in using this synthesizer and the different functions it is capable of doing. This can make some really neat old school sounds from arcades, robots and space sounds. I understand why there are so few that come up for sale as this piece is a timeless treasure and is still used in studios today and it makes a nice curiosity display piece! This comes in the original box with one Styrofoam insert to hold it in place. The box shows some storage wear and some taping on the bottom and is missing some of the side art from possible tape removal. This requires 4 C batteries not included."

These are varied and good, so be sure to flip through each. There are 39 videos in the playlist. To keep the list legible below I did not include patch notes in the description of each video. To get to them simply click through the video while playing and you will be taken to the video on YouTube where you can check them out if interested. I wish I found this channel sooner so I could have been posting them as they went up. BTW, if you know of any YouTube channels including your own that have not been featured on the site, sent them in. You'll find details on what goes up and how to send stuff in the posting guidelines here.

New Grove Audio GSM712 Eurorack Dual Channel VCA

via Grove Audio

"The 6HP module designated GMS-712EU has two low distortion VCA based on the 2164. Each independent amplifier has simple controls including an attenuverter and an initial gain control. The channels are DC coupled so they will pass DC and can be used to scale control voltages.

The unit is housed in a 6 HP panel and is less than 40 mm deep. It also includes a switchable +5 V source so that it can be used with systems that don't have +5 V. on their power buses. MSRP will be $144.95."

New Grove Audio G294A Eurorack 4 Pole Low Pass Filter

via Grove Audio

"Following on the successful introduction of the GMS-294a 4 Pole Low Pass filter, a recreation of the Moog™ 904a 4 Pole Ladder filter, the filter has been repackaged in Eurorack format. Like the MU version, this module utilizes, as much as possible, the original component types, bringing the 'Moog Filter' sound to the Eurorack world.

The unit is housed in a 12 HP panel and is less than 50 mm deep.

The filter will be available as a complete kit for intermediate level kit builders or fully assembled and tested."
