Pedro Eustache tries out the Snyderphonics Birl prototype

Published on Jan 6, 2016 Jeff Snyder

"Pedro Eustache dropped by Princeton, NJ to try out the Snyderphonics Birl prototype electronic wind instrument. The first part of the video shows him testing out more discrete playing and the ending shows him trying out fingered pitch bends, one of the advantages of the Birl's "open-holed" design.

The Snyderphonics Birl was featured back in 2014 here.

Vintage Moog 1150 Ribbon Controller

via this auction

"A very rare Moog 1150 Analog Ribbon Controller that is in good condition, considering it's age. I believe it's an older unit (perhaps from the Trumansburg Factory?) since it does not have the silk screened lettering on the controls, nor the instruction label affixed on the underside. The ribbon is solid and clean, and the two switches and slide pot are functional (they slide and switch)."

Giannini GK 6110 ST Demo Video

Published on Jan 6, 2016 fernando Costa Tecladista

Thought this was kind of interesting. The buttons and style remind me of the Siel DK-80. There have only been two previous posts to feature Giannini on the site. One was a brochure for the GK 6110. Note the brochure lacks the extra markings for "Electronic Keyboard Sweep Test GT". Also someone in the comments of that post stated that Giannini was a Brazilian company. Siel was Italian. The second post was for the DS1000 which appears to have been a fully programmable synthesizer, while the GK 6110 as you can see was a preset keyboard.

DreamsOfWires - Minibrute & Half Life

Published on Jan 6, 2016 DreamsOfWires

Thought this was pretty cool. More musical bits start at 3:13 but the beginning is definitely worth watching through.

"I've been playing some old games recently, so I thought I'd nod my head to an old favourite; Half Life, which seemed like a good excuse to see what hideous noises I could get out of the Minibrute. I recorded the base 'noise' track (which is what you can see me interfering with in the video) into Virsyn's 'Audio Reverb' app on the iPad. Then I added a second track of Minibrute + sequencer throughout most of the middle of the recording, (which I was too lazy to capture on video). I also mixed in some of the game's audio (dialogue only). Such an excellent and genuinely freaky game.

All sounds are from the Minibrute of course."

Arp 2600 with Tonus Logo & Keyboard

via this auction

"Here's the chance you've been waiting for. For sale is an incredibly rare Arp 2600 synthesizer with the Tonus logo. What makes this Arp special over most of the ones you see is it has the superior sought after 4017 oscillators, said to be more stable than the later versions and also with a fatter analog tone. It also has the rare Moog Filter which Arp was later sued over [not true - threatened but not sued] and had to change the design [true]. The later design is said to be weaker and thinner sounding. This Moog filter is super creamy and buttery, very incredible sound. The synth is 100% fully functional, recently tuned/calibrated and gone over, all sliders are clean and jacks are working and power supply board has been recapped. The keyboard keys all trigger properly, and has an upgraded connector jack that isn't as flimsy as the original connectors. Also upgraded is the power cable, it takes standard 3 prong instead of the proprietary oval shape. The only issue is 3 slider shafts are broken off, the slider still work but the shafts are shorter without the knob caps (which could be glued back on or replace the sliders entirely if desired). Cosmetically, the synth face looks very nice, crisp graphics and not much wear. The outside of the synth does show quite a bit of wear, especially on the lid covers. The lids for both keyboard and main unit are included but show a bit of peeling, so be sure to check out the pictures and make sure you like it. The cosmetics could easily be touched up with a retolexing if desired or you can appreciate the vintage character to it. The sound is the important part which is just really incredible and noticeably better than the other G-clef or black/orange 2600s I've played that didn't have the 4017 and Moog filters in them. I am open to offers but remember while your offer is pending someone else may snap this up. Don't miss out on this gem!"

Thought this was interesting. I always assumed the various Coron drum synth clones were essentially the same. If you scroll down you'll see the DX-5 appears to be an expanded version with some extra controls on the site. The front panel controls are the same. I have no idea if the range of them and/or specs vary.
