Wersi Bass Synthesizer Demo

ZOOM0004 Published on Feb 3, 2016 Claudio Corona

via this auction

"It is a rare gem, sounds absolutely awesome with some funky effects like the wha-wha.

I have researched for 2 years an analog synth that as well as synth leads has an electric bass sound that reproduces a Fender Precision E.bass with character This is the one. I produced an album with this. Amazing.

For the left hand keyboard player this is precious. Stevie Wonder warm bass sounds as well.

The case has some scratches and sign of use.

I once was obsessed about this and because it has an old socket where you can connect a Wersi Pedalboard (if you find it!) I thought to add MIDI and spent months in finding the manuals which I eventually found by a German guy still working for Wersi. (It's a photocopy). He would have never sold me the original. It hasn't got MIDI. But you could add it.

Please see my impromptu jam with the synth to show it in action."

The Gristleizer Tabletop v3 Filter Demo

Published on Jan 29, 2016 Endangered Audio Research Video

"This is a demonstration of the new filter for The Gristleizer in version 3 of the Tabletop, of which only 3 assembled units and 7 PCB remains; after which they will be gone forever!

Only 3 Prebuilt Tabletops Remain - SALE - $329:

Only 7 PCBs Remain - $29:

The last 3 prebuilt tabletops come with a Filter Mix In/Out switch, as well as Moog-style knobs (like the one featured in the video).

We are also selling off our remaining stock of Gristleizer box faceplates - contact if you would like to reserve one.

If you want a Gristleizer Eurorack module, I’m sorry, but you’re too late! We’ve sold out of them as well, and will be retiring The Gristleizer line for good (though our circuit will arise again in an even newer, updated form and under a new name, TBD).

For those of you who’ve bought a Eurorack module, the filter will sound the same in yours as in this video. Also, you can now find it on Modular Grid!

And finally, if you sign up for our newsletter, you will get once-a-month email updates that will include special Newsletter-only pricing, raffles, contests, and early-bird reservations - we’re going to make this newsletter one that you actually be *excited* to open.

Moog Receives Outstanding Technical Achievement Award at 31st Annual TEC Awards

"Moog Receives Outstanding Technical Achievement Award for its Modular Recreation at 31st Annual TEC Awards

Anaheim, Calif. – February 3, 2016 – Moog Music announced that it has won an award for Outstanding Technical Achievement from the NAMM Foundation for its faithful recreation of the Model 15, System 35 and System 55 modular synthesizers. Moog Music CEO and President Mike Adams was on hand to accept the award, which was presented in the Musical Instrument Hardware category at a special recognition ceremony on January 23rd during the 2016 NAMM show.

'It is an immense honor to be recognized with a TEC award for the Modular Recreation,' said Adams. 'The award is a testament to the genius of Bob Moog’s original designs created over 40 years ago, and the hard work our team at Moog Music has put into faithfully recreating these classic instruments.'

Presented by the NAMM Foundation, the TEC Awards celebrate the best in professional audio technology and sound production. TEC award recipients are selected by a panel of respected industry professionals from the audio and creative disciplines. In addition to its win for the Modular Recreation, Moog Music was also nominated in the Musical Instrument Amplification & Effects category for its MF-Chorus and MF-Flange Minifooger analog effects pedals.

Modular Recreation
Following its recreation of the Emerson Moog Modular system last year, Moog began handcrafting three more modular systems starting in January 2015. These Modular Recreations include the System 55, the System 35 and the Model 15 analog synthesizers. Each system matches the original product specifications, manufacturing techniques and processes from the 1970s. Every module is built just as they were in 1973 - by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, and using traditional wiring methods. Even the front panels are photo-etched aluminum, a classic process rarely used today, to maintain the classic and durable look of vintage Moog modules.

For more information on Moog's modular synthesizers, please visit

About Moog Music:
Moog Music synthesizers and other electronic musical instruments are designed and lovingly handcrafted in the Moog factory in downtown Asheville, N.C. Moog Music and its customers carry on the legacy of Dr. Robert Moog, inventor of the Moog synthesizer and Founder of Moog Music Inc."

5th Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge

"In celebration of the creative curiosity that fueled a young Bob Moog and all of those that follow in his footsteps, Moog is sponsoring its 5th Annual Circuit Bending Contest.

This year, Moog’s circuit bending challenge is to take a battery powered device and circuit bend it into an instrument capable of creating new and unique sounds. We want others to be inspired by your device, and share in the experience of creating something new and exciting. Your project has to be completed in a manner that can be replicated by others. You’ll need to create a step by step list of instructions so that anyone else can replicate the process and create the same instrument. Just to make things a bit more interesting, you’ll need to complete the entire project for $70 or less."

Patch Lab #10: Malekko Varigate 4 - only few HP + Roland 572

Published on Feb 3, 2016

"By public request this video goes into detailed explanation of the patch. The new Malekko Varigate 4 simplifies generating evolving rhythms. Previously we had to use many modules & complex patching to achieve similar results. You'll hear the new Roland System 572 phaser module on drums as well as other System 500 modules, and a neat trick for beefing up bassdrum with simple Dopefer VCA's."

"There is nothing quite like the Yamaha VL70m synths. They are in a league all their own! One of the best ways to precisely reproduce wind instrument sounds. Even bass and guitars on the VL70m are incredible!

With the MRT Breath Controller, add unparalled realism to your brass, reed and woodwind instruments. By simply blowing into the MRT, you can control amplitude, modulation, volume, timbre, and quite an array of other cool effects and dynamics to your instruments."

Midibox MB6582 V2 Wilba analog synth 8 x 6582 SID chips

via this auction

via the seller:

"Midibox MB6582 V2 in fantastic condition. Built by me under the guidance of a much respected member of the Midibox community. This MIdibox was completed around 2011 and works reliably, 100% as intended and has been in my smoke free studio ever since and only used a handful of times.

Contains 4 x Midibox cores and runs up to 8 x SID chips (INCLUDED) to achieve 4 stereo SID pairs that can be run in unison, multitimral & Superpoly modes among others
The 8 6582A SIDs are from the original Wilba NOS group buy and are authentic 6582A ICs
Case is red anodised etched aluminium by Julian 'The Beast' UK with matching rear panel
A super quiet case fan has been installed in the rear for cooling and can be internally disconnected if needed (including the fan was a bit of a joke on Wilba's part and it's not really essential if the noise bothers you)
Control surface parts were sourced via Wilba's original group buy
All build decisions are based on the MB6582 build wiki
Flat top LED for clean faceplate look
Commodore C64 power supply to be shipped with the unit (US or Japan 110v buyers may decide to opt to not have the PSU shipped as it's quite heavy and could be sourced locally).

I am happy to ship internationally but buyer pays exact shipping charge and will be verified after close of bidding. Local inspection is always welcome. Happy bidding!

Lego Eurorack Cases by decay

decay sent in these pics of his Lego eurorack case. You'll find more pics here.

"Lego Technic cases for modular eurorack systems. No screws, no glue used, just the rails to fix the modules."

Update: I asked decay how he fastened the rails to the case. Here's what he had to say: "the rails fit exact into the build case, so i just fixed the four edges with legoparts. the case is very stable and light…and of course modular, meaning if i want to make the case bigger let´s say 104HP i can just expand it…that´s the possibilities of Lego."
