Eurorack With Push 2

Published on Nov 29, 2015 Chris Randall of Audio Damage

"Just got a Push 2, and I'm working out how to integrate it in to my general vibe. So this isn't any particular musical statement, but rather getting a feel for using the Euro stuff in the context of a Push 2.

I'm running two stereo pairs in to Live from the Euro. The first pair is percussion, and the second pair is synth. Not sure if this is where I'll ultimately land, but it seems to work for now. The top Sequencer 1 is driving synths, and the bottom one is driving drums.

Everything audible in the video came from the Euro. The chords are Simpler instruments I made from the WMD/SSF stuff (two channels of that in Live), and the bass is also a Simpler sample of the Euro."

ARP 2600 2601 with 3620 Keyboard

via this auction

"Up for sale is this beautiful ARP 2600 2601 v1.0 with 3620 keyboard. Both are in excellent, fully functional condition and have been restored and upgraded (see below). The "orange and black" 2601 is the last 2600 version produced by ARP. It is the most reliable version, an update to the more common grey version. None of the modules are set in epoxy, making it more serviceable in the long run."

Roland Juno 6 - retro patches

Published on Nov 29, 2015 Michal Patulski

"through Lexicon MPX 1 and Glensound vintage mixing console."


via this auction

"Here is a vintage '70s Moog Minimoog Model D in working condition. Serial #7324. The oscillators sound great. The keyboard bus bar probably needs cleaning, as played notes wander, and get better when the key is played more often. I'm not an expert on vintage synths, however. The keyboard itself feels quite nice, and the unit and panel are in good condition, except for two ends where the panel is slightly warped. The wood overall is good, except for a crack in the top wood section. All in all a good bargain, priced considerably less than others that have been refurbished, if you're knowledgeable about these synthesizers and are willing to give this one some cleanup and TLC. I have a repair invoice from Analogics, the expert analog synth restorers in Ohio, who rebuilt and replaced the keyboard bushings for another Model D for $215 plus shipping (paperwork/invoice available upon request)."

Apr Pro Soloist vintage analog lead synthesizer, Model 2710

via this auction

"Arp Pro Soloist, analog monophonic synthesizer from the early 1970's, part of the signature sound of Tony Banks (Genesis). This vintage preset synth has an amazingly expressive aftertouch feature, and has been refurbished at Syntaur to 100% functionality. Very nice cosmetic condition, with slightly worn lettering on the slider panel."

Eurocraic - November 2015

Published on Nov 29, 2015 DivKidMusic

"On the 21st of November my friend Greg "Fleggy" (with some friends) put together the first Irish synth meet. Unfortunately I couldn't be there but I'm hoping to be at the next one. Search "EuroCraic" for more information.

Oh and that new Harvestman module you may have seen pictures of doing the rounds across the web surfaced from this event. As Scott himself came with his Harvestman system along with the new module."

Seaboard RISE and Haken Continuum-II

Published on Nov 29, 2015 Christophe Duquesne

"This is another small video combining the SEABOARD RISE, from ROLI, and the Haken Continuum, each running its own sound engine (EQUATOR on a Mac for RISE, and Eagan Matrix internal sound engine for the Continuum).

It's just one take, and directly recorded out of the mixer (no editing, so the mix is not perfect and there are a few pitch issues ....). The only addition is a reververb from Valhalla DSP run on a Tiptop Audio Z-DSP.

The VlnVlaCellBass sound of the Continuum (amazing preset from Ed Eagan) is physical modeling based.
The Legato Orchestra on the RISE (probably from Rafael Szaban), from the official ROLI preset bank (with a few local tweaking from me), is sample based.

I'm not trying to replace any instrument here: just playing something I had never been able to play on a keyboard !"

New FATCORE Semi-Modular Synth & CY-CLONE Sequencer by EnsureSound

Semi modular synth FATCORE sequencer CY-CLONE by Ensure Sound

Published on Oct 14, 2015 Ensure Sound


Details captured for the archives.


Nowadays many studios use computers with special software for generate melodies, sequences and patterns. But only analog synthesizer will help to create really intricate repetitive, pulsating, and truly unique melodic patterns. And we offer a unique solutions - FACTOR and CY-CLONE, which are produced by famous techniques of the analogue synthesizers and sequencers (MOOG, ROLAND, KORG, ARP etc.) and used as a single system. They have got similar capabilities in creating of sounds and music sequences, and excellent analog sounding and has low cost. They are collected in standard RACK 19” case for installation in a studio rack."

Peter Blasser of Ciat-Lonbarde on the Tocante Karper


"The new 'Tocante Karper' uses 24 pic chips in parallel to synthesize karplus-strong string emulations, in the Tocante scale. That scale is initially based on a very analog thing- the capacitor values in an E6 preferred number set. For example: 10, 15, 22, 33, 47 and 68 are my starting numerology. Because they are integers, and also because the frequency varies as the reciprocal of the capacitance (bigger capacitor, lower frequency), it ported over seamlessly to sixteen bit string buffers of different lengths..."

Prototype for Buchla Modular by Scrotum Lab [SL-04]

Published on Nov 29, 2015 batchas

"I finished a proto today with Orgone Accumulator + Radio Music modules in one Buchla module.
Still some details to change (like LEDs order or some CV ins not working exactly like they should), but here are the first seconds recorded after switching it on.
What we hear are the direct outs from the module. There's only external reverb and delay added."

Note: just realized I was missing a scrotum channel. :) Label added below.

ROLAND TR 606 with Mods

For sale on eBay Germany

English below:

" Die Roland TR 606 wurde folgendermassen gemodded:
- Einzelausgänge
- Mute Switches (kick, snare, lo tom, hi tom, cymbal, hihat )
- Tom Trigger Mute, so dass man von einem Tom nur noch den "hauchigen" Geräuschanteil hört
- und wie man sieht, viele Regler für Klangveränderungen:
links je eine Reihe senkrecht für Kick, Snare, Toms, die gesamte rechte Seite ist für Hihats und Cymbal zuständig

Ich wollte noch einen Griff dranmachen, damit es wie ein alter Ghettoblaster aussieht,
aber auch so sieht diese 606 ziemlich cool aus;)

Ich habe inkl der TR 606 damals ca 1100 EUR ausgegeben (es stecken viele Stunden ARBEIT drin!)
Kommt mit Netzteil.

Hier ein längeres Klangbeispiel

Fragen können gern unter goldtone (a t) gestellt werden !"


"this one of a kind Roland TR 606 was made for me by a tech in Berlin.

it not only features single outs and mute switches (kick, snare, lo tom, hi tom, cymbal, hihat )

but also specials like
Tom second trigger mute (so you hear only the noise of the second tom)
and of course many knobs to manipulate the sounds, the right side is
dedicated to cymbal/hihats with lots of interacting knobs.
As you hear in the audio file, you can even do kind of minimal clicky beats with it.

Plan was to put it into some kind of "old ghettblaster" -style holder,
hence the shape. But the happy buyer might want to do something like that.

Here is a longer soundfile

I paid about 1100 EUR incl the TR 606 at that time - it was many hours of work for the man to do all the mods.
Power supply is included

VOLTLIFE: Animodule M1xXOR as a sequencer

Published on Nov 28, 2015 voltlife

"Using Animodule's new M1xXOR module (an interesting hybrid of a gateable mixer and a sequential/VC switch) to create sequences. Simply multing a fixed voltage offset into each channel quickly gives you a basic 4-stage sequencer, but using the gate ins and stage control gives you the opportunity to create complex, evolving melodies."

Vintage 70s Paia Oz 3760 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"This battery powered, polyphonic synth from the late 70's covers 5 octaves, is portable, and sounds incredible. All keys and knobs work on this synth. Has built in speaker that sounds great mic'd. I've owned this PAIA for several years and kept it in great working order. Takes 2 - 9volt batteries. Missing top case cover. Also looks to have been modded in the back to plug into a wall socket. I've only used it with batteries. Exterior is in good condition, normal wear and tear for an instrument thats almost 40 years old..."

Roland Jupiter 6 Synthesizer with Europa Upgrade

via this auction

"Up for sale is a beautiful example of a Roland Jupiter 6 Keyboard. This keyboard was bought from Ko at modeless factory in Japan and has been gently cared for ever since. It has been living in a smoke free studio and always has a protective cover over it. The only thing wrong is that its missing a slider cap which you can buy from ebay or Syntaur, very easy to find and pop on. At some point somebody fitted some nice hardwood sides to it that have a really nice finish. This particular Jupiter also has the europa mod which gives you some really cool arpeggiator modes, extra memory, arpeggiator syncs to midi, etc. My favorite new feature is that you can turn both osc to make weird sound effects with the noise and filter. Everything is working 100 percent with no scratchy pots, noise etc. It also comes with a protective cover, manual and a rolling carrying case."

Roland Jupiter 8 w/MIDI (Encore)

via this auction

via the seller: "Roland Jupiter 8 with Encore midi (In & out) professionally installed by Encore and synth fully serviced. Studio use only and in fantastic condition, but cosmetically and sonically (please view all pictures carefully, since "looks" is a subjective thing and I want this listing to be 100% fair). I'm not a tech person, but I "think" this is the 14bit version (back panel fully photographed, if that helps). I had the midi kit installed, works perfectly. Tuning and synth is rock solid (Roland Jupiter lines are built like tanks, I also own a Jupiter 6 & 4). No known problems what-so-ever. Will take it to UPS store to be professionally packed, which I will charge as part of shipping (it's just safer that way). Vintage analog synth, so sold "as-is," but it is leaving 100% in working condition. Winning bidder can request a video before shipping so there are no questions."
