"This is the j-wire type and has the power supply on the case. Some earlier models had power supply on the board which damaged it from the weight. Later models had a different keyboard which was not as reliable as the j-wire so this is the more desirable version."

GOLT! - Roland TR-808 Solo

Published on Dec 31, 2015 GOLT !

"The TR-808 all by itself. No other instruments or sync. The sequencer has this amazing bouncy feel, there's nothing quite like it. It's still my favourite drum machine of all time."

InsWorks MOAS SE01 controlando el InsWorks Esencial

Published on Dec 31, 2015 Carlos Alberto Gutiérrez Vera

"El MOAS es un modulo multifuncional que cuenta con: sección de offset, mezclador, splitter y amplificador invertido.

El Offset cuenta con control de voltaje negativo a positivo, control de escala, entrada para CV y salida invertida.

El Mezclador cuenta con 4 entradas y una salida invertida.

El Splitter tiene una entrada y 4 salidas

El Amplificador invertido cuenta con entrada y salida

Adicionalmente el circuito dispone de un selector para seleccionar si se va a usar una salida normalizada para el mezclador o el offset, aun así si se desea otra salida normalizada solo seria cosa de usar la salida invertida del mezclador o el offset a la entrada del amplificador invertido."


"The MAS is a multifunctional module that includes: offset section, mixer, amplifier splitter and invested.

The Offset control has negative voltage to positive, scale control, input and inverted output CV.

The mixer has 4 inputs and an inverted output.

The Splitter has one input and 4 outputs

The amplifier has invested in and out

Additionally, the circuit has a switch to select whether to use a standardized mixer or output offset, yet if someone would only thing standard output is desired to use the inverted output of the mixer or the offset to the amplifier input invested."

THEREMIN - And This Is My Beloved

Published on Dec 31, 2015 Peter Pringle

"This song is from the hit 1953 musical, KISMET, with music adapted from the works of the Russian composer, Alexander Borodin. The story unfolds in old Baghdad, so I put myself in an appropriate fantasy decor! I am playing the 1929 RCA theremin once owned by the late Dr. Samuel Hoffman."

Strum - Modular Patch by Richard Devine

Strum - Modular Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

"This was a patch experiment using the new Mutable Instruments Rings/Clouds Modules, and trying to create strumming/plucking guitar like sounds within a patch. The inspiration came from playing around with the Clouds Parasites 1.3 alternate firmware running in the Resonator mode highlighting the "scatter" (or strum) function. The master clock was the Tiptop Circadian Rhythms module, taking the first 4 outputs into my Nord Drum 2 for the Kick, snare, closed and open hi-hats. From there the clock output from the CR was multiplied and then sent to the Modcan Touch Sequencer. First row output from the TS was sent to the intellijel Shapeshifter creating a two note baseline sequence that comes in at 1:58. The second sequence Row2 output from the TS was sent to the "ALM Akemie's Castle" module OSC A output using the chord function, that comes in at 25 seconds. The gates from the modcan where set to a 16th's pulse sequence. Modulation from the synthesis technology E102 Quad Temporal Shifter output 1 modulating the Multiplier input on Operator 1. The 2, 3 and 4 outputs from the E102 where also modulating the Operator 2, 3, and 4 inputs on the Akemie's Castle. This was creating the harmonic timbre changing as the sequence was playing.

The slowly evolving sweeping noise textures that come in at 1:09 is from the Music Thing Radio Music module. The sample was a white noise sampled lightly filtered and then sent to the intellijel HexVCA with the amplitude CV control via a Intellijel Dixie modulating from slow to high rates (free running). The Make Noise Rene was being externally clocked from the Circadian Rhythm, and was sending out a quantized output to the Mutable Instruments Clouds pitch input creating the chord guitar sequence. The strum sounds on Clouds was played by the 4ms QCD running in 32th division output into the Trigger input. The freeze input was also triggered by a Ladik R-110 Random clock module. The combination of the two created the trill chord like strums.

The bass guitar tone sound that comes in at 1:24 are from the MakeNoise Mysteron, that is being sequenced by the Modcan Touch Sequencer, Row Output 3 was programmed in the same key but a lower octave. The "Rings" module was creating slow attack soft high pitched chords in reverb that come around 2:50. There was additional processing of the Clouds output that was sent into the Tiptop ZDSP module running the "Halls of Vahalla" card program 8 "Ginnungagap" creating the high pitch octave deep reverb shimmer effects. The harmonic slow swells that come in at 3:30 where created using another intellijel Dixie oscillator sine output running into an Strymon "Big Sky" pedal being harmonically controlled by an intellijel µScale V1. The output was being played slowly then processed using the "Choral" mode, creating the slow shimmer swells. The entire mix was sent into the Eventide Space pedal using the "Corridors" patch.

New Years Ambient Eve with Moog Werkstatt, Beatstep Pro, System 1m, Microbrute, Space Echo

Published on Dec 31, 2015 JimBobJrJackson Earmonkey

"Before I really explore the System 1m, I have to at least make some music with it. This piece features the System 1m playing a sequence from the Beatstep Pro. The Werkstatt provides the drone (at which it excels), and the Microbrute the lead. Of course everything is going through the Roland RE-301 Space Chorus, then into Valhalla Shimmer reverb in Ableton. This FX setup is totally killer. The Valhalla plugin is only $50 and totally worth it. The RE-301 was, well...more the $50, but also very worth it."

Hands On: Fxpansion Strobe 2 - Textures

Published on Dec 31, 2015 Synth Anatomy

"This is the second video about Strobe 2, the new release of Fxpansion. This second version of Strobe Synthesizer which was released initially in the DCAM Synth Squad bring a lot of new features and fresh new GUI.

Normally, if someone present you the sounds of a new Synthesizer, he will show you Bass and Leads sounds but here I want to show that the power of Strobe 2 is also available in other ways such as texture sounds. This texture sounds are deep and a rich of modulation activity.

"Strobe2 is a software polysynth which puts diverse new sounds effortlessly within your reach. It builds on the original's realistic analogue modelling and deep but intuitive synthesis with a slew of enhancements and requested features. Highlights include a stunning effects section, revamped arpeggiator, deeper modulation processing, preset-morphing, randomizing and a scalable vector interface for retina and 4K displays."

With over 900 Presets, Strobe 2 offers you a lot of pre-designed patches ready to play.

I wanted to do something hard & heavy for my last jam of 2015. Setup is simple, the Circuit is playing all the sound and is going into the Kaoss Pad 3 for bit brushing & looping/glitch FX. Expect bigger better things from Hardtek Studios in 2016!!!!!!!!"

Roland Malekko System 500 noodles

Published on Dec 30, 2015 Muff Wiggler

"Another basic subtractive patch intended as an example of what the System 500 sounds like doing basic subtractive things. I included all the in between "setting up" the patch bits so you can hear all the little tweaks. Really it's just jamming though. nothing was planned. I found a sound i liked and then just changed sequencer speed, modulations etc.

the patch is oscillator to filter to VCA and the delay is multed from the VCA and has its own channel on the Sputnik mixer and gets taken out of the mix here or there. it's a short delay setting so is more of a wobbly chorus type sound when being modulated by internal LFO.

sequencer is the Xoac Moskwa 8 step sequencer running in a pendulum mode so it goes start to end and end to start and on and on. it triggers the System 500 envelopes and also has portamento that finds its way into the sequencer now and then."

Synth Tech E950 Patch with DIY Buchla 200

Published on Dec 30, 2015 djangosfire

"Set up an odd-time signature patch on the DIY Buchla 200r..... Using the new Synthesis Technology E950 'Circuit Bent VCO'.

The E950 is a combo whacky wavetable VCO that contains licensed tech from the original Texas Instruments LPC speech synthesizers (plus a pile of other amazing wavetables from the E350).

Basically a Speak & Spell from outer-space!

This was my 1st test patch.... what a great sounding module .... Complex timbres of nearly unlimited variation are possible.

- Djangosfire

PS - detailed E950 specs can of course be found at"
