Original Waldorf Q Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction


Published on Dec 5, 2015 Peter Pringle

"I made a video of this classic Edith Piaf song several years ago when YouTube quality was not as good as it is today and everything sounded as if it had been recorded at the bottom of a swimming pool. Here is a new theremin version of the song played on Samuel Hoffman’s 1929 RCA theremim. I lived in Paris for a while in the late 1960’s and it is one of the most wonderful cities in the world."

I added this one to the tribute post here.

Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 SN 000742

via this auction

"A monstrous 8 voice polysynth from SCI! The T8 has a very fat Prophet-5-like tone. This synth adds many illustrious new features (for its time) such as full MIDI implementation, 76 full size weighted keys with velocity and aftertouch, split/layer double/unison keyboard modes, and a simple but useful real-time sequencer. The new keyboard features many dynamics enhancements, ie: aftertouch can affect pitch, level, filter or the LFO. It was Sequential's finest analog synthesizer. Digital control of analog sound with an extremely flexible, intuitive and beautiful design - right down to the wood panels! Here's a great write-up [on Sound on Sound] about the T8 if you want to learn more specifications.

This Sequential Circuits Prophet T-8 is in great condition. The ROMs have been upgraded to 3.7/3.8 from Wine Country Sequential. I replaced all of the foam in the keybed. Two defective voices were repaired, and the oscillator and filter trims are calibrated."

Novation Nova 16 Voice Polyphonic Synth

via this auction

"Up for sale Novation Nova Synth Module. The synth is in good condition with minimal wear. It sounds great, and works good. A real classic of analog digital sound. The only thing is, if you scroll fast data knobs (there are only 2 of them) very fast it will skip sometimes, but if you go slow it works fine. All other knobs dont skip and work perfect. Other than that its in good working condition. It comes with O/S 4.1 Loaded."

Buchla 100 wave generator 195 filter

Published on Dec 5, 2015 DJjondent

"This is quick demo of the Buchla 100 for a future remix.
This take is all live, unedited with lots of mistakes - I'm experimenting mainly with the 195 filter. I started with the intention of only using one VCO (a 144) and the 195 , ten channel (Octave Format) comb filter to see how many sounds I could get from a minimal setup.

Over the course of the night I decided to add 3 more VCOs - two 158s & a second 144.

Buchla Easel and a 4U expander

Published on Dec 5, 2015 Nicolas Lévy

"Added a few modules to the Easel.
247v by Verbos
259r built by Roman
And a Modcan 59a delay DIYed in Buchla format.

In this patch the most noticeable effect is achieved by having the pressure controlling the delay feedback.
The 259r is modulated by the 2nd cv out of the 247v, the easel mod osc and the easel envelope.
The 247v is sending pulses at each step to clock the 59a. When it skips a step it gives the nice "rolling" effect in the sequence.
The sequence is the Easel complex osc, no envelope, just the 247v steps out sending pulses to open the Easel VCA/LPG."

intellijel Introduces Three New Modules for Fall 2015 – µMIDI, Dixie II+, Polaris

via intellijel

"Today we are pleased to announce three new modules for Fall 2015:

µMIDI – An easy to use USB and DIN MIDI interface with clock sync and voice control outputs. Built with an ARM core for tight timing and easy firmware updates.
Dixie II+ – An expanded Dixie II with 8-position octave switch, suboctave out, a special new hard sync, and more control over FM and PWM.
Polaris – A versatile voltage controlled filter / phaser with 27 filter modes and asymmetric distortion.
Shipments are already en route to Control, Control Voltage, and Analogue Haven. The modules should be available from your other favourite retailers soon.

Watch for more exciting modules to be announced at NAMM 2016!"

"The µMIDI provides all the essentials to control and sync your Eurorack modular from your computer, iPhone/iPad, or hardware MIDI device with a minimum of fuss. No menu diving or configuration scripts, just two buttons. The connectivity, feature set, and compact size make the µMIDI ideal for integrating your modular with the rest of your rig while not taking up too much space in your case.

The upper clock section features a dedicated 16th note clock output ideal for synchronizing a Eurorack sequencer like the Metropolis. A second clock output with selectable divisions can be used when difference sync events are needed. The run and reset outputs can be used to reset your Eurorack sequencers in tandem with any external sequencer or DAW.

The lower half of the µMIDI gives you everything you need to control a single voice synth via MIDI. Just connect either a USB or DIN MIDI cable to the module, LEARN a channel, and start playing.

Future firmware updates over USB are made easy with the Firmware Updater software.

High speed ARM processor for low latency & jitter.
DIN or USB MIDI input.
Two clock outputs, one with selectable divisions.
Sequencer sync via run and reset outputs.
Precision 0 – 10 V note pitch output with pitch bend & portamento CC support.
Gate and trigger outputs for envelope triggering.
Mod wheel and continuous controller outputs for additional modulation.
Firmware updates over USB."

"Dixie II+
Full-featured triangle core VCO/LFO
The Dixie II+ is a larger variant of the classic Dixie II. Using the same great triangle core oscillator, it adds a number of features to make it even more versatile with only a modest increase in size. The Dixie II+ makes a great primary oscillator for a modular system, or a great companion the Rubicon.

8-position octave switch for quick setting of course tuning.
Fine tuning knob that turns to a coarse knob when in LFO mode.
Dual FM inputs, with FM1 attenuator and switch to select between exponential and linear mode.
Pulse width control with attenuator.
Reset to 0 V hard sync input, ideal for percussive sounds or modulation.
Flip sync circuit similar to but improved from the Dixie II.
6 waveform outputs: sine, triangle, zigzag, saw, pulse and suboctave."

Versatile Multimode VCF + Phaser
The Polaris is a 4-stage cascaded OTA filter designed by David Dixon. It’s built on the lineage of the Dr. Octature and Atlantis filters, but with a totally revised core and resonance control. Along with dedicated LP, HP and BP it outputs it features a configurable MULTI output capable of an unprecedented 27 different filter modes.

With drive turned down the Polaris is capable of buttery smooth filtering, and the cutoff control range has been fine tuned for playability. Turn up the drive and engage the multi distort asymmetric distortion circuit for a more aggressive sound. Not content to be just a filter, the Polaris’s AP phaser mode combined with frequency modulation can be used to achieve a phaser effect.

With so much versatility in a modest size, the Polaris is an ideal filter for a starter system and an excellent addition to the tonal palette of a larger modular.

Dedicated LP, BP and HP outputs.
MULTI output with 27 selectable filter types: 4 x LP, 5x BP, 4 x HP, 5 x Notch, 4x AP and 4 x Phaser (AP mode with inverted dry blend).
Input drive control with soft clipping distortion.
MUTLI output asymmetric distortion."

Sequential Circuits SixTrak Vintage Analogue Synth MIDI profesionally overhauled

via this auction


Never gigged, always stayed in pet/smoke free Home Studio, so it is in very good condition, please see pictures. I have attached a lot of pictures to see exactly how it looks.


It has recently been completely overhauled by a professional synth engineer and it is in perfect working order:

power supply (220V) electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with the best quality ones
wood sides have been refurbished to look like new
new battery 3.2V has been installed
ROM has been upgraded to the latest version 12 (fixes various midi bugs and keeps settings)
internal boards, sliders and keyboard contacts have been thoroughly cleaned
the instrument has been tuned
factory presets have been restored
With the above heavy and expensive restoration work, the instrument operates with even better and long lasting quality components, making this Six-Trak one of the best you can ever find on eBay."

Kawai Teisco SX-240 Analogue Vintage DCO Synth MIDI profesionally overhauled

via this auction

"For sale is the Kawai SX-240, a classic, very rare and unique sounding dual DCO multi-waveform Analog Synthesizer (made in 1984) with SAW, SQUARE, PULSE (2nd LFO), BRASS (Ring Modulation) waveform, 8-voices of polyphony, an additional SUB Oscillator, Poly8/4/mono modes, a super-warm, lush, on-board chorus/ensemble effect, 8-SSM 2044 filters (used on Korg Mono/poly, Korg Trident, Korg Polysix, Kawai SX-210, Kawai K3 etc), a general LFO that can be routed everywhere in the DCO, VCF and the VCA, MIDI In/Out/Through, Portamento, Glissando, a 8-digits LED screen for editing the parameters and the option of being placed in Split or Dual patch modes. In Split mode you can assign two patches to be played in a split on the keyboard. In Dual mode two patches can be played at the same time for a rich, warm and layered sound, not very common in Analog Synthesizers. It has also a built-in, real time 1,500 note sequencer and chord memory.

Kawai SX-240 has a great rich, lush and unique analog sound to it that can't be reproduced by today's modern synthesizers.

Ritm 2 soviet analog synthesizer

Uploaded on Oct 28, 2015 Soviet Synths

via this auction

"Ritm-2 in exceptional condition (collectors item) + original upper lid + cables included!
RItm-2 is a moog prodigy/micromoog kind of a clone but with soviet components which makes it sound more fluttery and overdriven which results in a more "fatter" sound.

Note: Ritm-2 operates under 220 volts, you would need a voltage transformer if you operate under 110 volts (can be bought at any local electric shop)"

Polivoks soviet synthesizer fully serviced with 1/4 jacks installed

44714171471 Uploaded on Dec 5, 2015 Soviet Synths

via this auction

"This Polivoks is in a quite good condition, there is a crack on the left rear bottom corner part and scratches on two keyboard notes but its still smooth and polished. Full maintenance and calibration has been made by a professional technician plus standard 1/4 jacks installed instead of the soviet ones...

The condition as you can see on the photos and video is really good except some scratches here and there but nothing fatal, keys are truly white. It comes with a case (upper lid) but the locks on them are broken. This is usual for the polivokses upper lids which are basically just used for transportation."

AKAI MFC42 Analogue Filter with Original Box

via this auction

"Rare analogue filter module made as the perfect partner for the MPC 2000XL, but can be used with any sampler, synthesizer or other studio equipment (fits in a standard 19" rack).

It has a phono input stage so you can plug a turntable straight into it for sampling into old MPCs or other samplers... if only I'd owned this and my old 2000XL at the same time, I would never have let the 2KXL go!

It's an 8 Pole filter which can operate in stereo 2 or 4-Pole mode, or 2, 4 or even 8-Pole in mono. So when I used to plug this into an analogue monosynth, I ran it in 8-Pole mode for an extreme 8db per octave - in this extreme slope mode you can really twist sounds or make the purest, deepest bass without the volume loss shallower curves produce. Unlike some of the tamer filters built into a lot of synths and samplers, this one can be pushed all the way to extremes.

And then we found hell...

Papernoise Worked on the New UI for Audulus 3

Thought this was an interesting little bit of synth trivia for the archives. Papernoise has mainly been known for his hardware designs across the modular market and he recently designed a new case for the Sonic Potions LXR. It looks like he also worked with Taylor on the new UI for Audulus 3.

via Papernoise

"Audulus 3 is now finally done (in case you don’t know, I’ve been working with Taylor on the new UI), Dec 8 is the scheduled, official release date. You might not want to miss it, since it will come with a discounted price for everybody, and this new version has no more “in app purchases”. Buy it once and get the whole pack of goodies, and there’s really a lot coming with this new version!"
