Rhodes Chroma Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Up for sale is an excellent example of one of the best (really the best) analog synthesizers to have ever hit the market. This unit has had every aftermarket upgrade done to it in recent years. The wood has been completely refinished. The power supply has been redone. The aftertouch keyboard has been added on. The synth operates with full midi/sysex and is capable of being programmed via iPad. The only problem of mention on this is that the pedal seems to be intermittent due to the rewiring that needs to be done (as can be seen in the picture). Besides that, this unit is in amazing shape physically and electronically and comes as pictured."

Apollo | Trip the Light - Airlock (live performance)

Published on Feb 9, 2016 anthony burchell

"Modular Live Jam - Trip the Light - Apollo

The Mutable Instruments Peaks is being controlled by the Trigger Man sequencing the kick and snare patterns. The Mutable Elements is in chord mode (perfect for knob tweaks). The bass/lead parts were by the Pittsburgh Waveforms which is being controlled by an adsr and an envelope modulating the cutoff. A split of the audio is being routed into the Element's external in to make some weird resonant flute sounds."

"TEMPI is a 6 CHannel, polyphonic time-shifting clock module. It provides an intuitive method for creation and recall of complex clocking arrangements within a modular synthesizer system. Using HUMAN and/ or MACHINE programming you could re-create most classic Clock Divider and Multiplier arrangements and then continue on to create new ones. Store up to 64 for later recall and Select them using control signals from within your system or the Select Bus."

The CPU board has been fully serviced with new lithium battery, logic ic's etc. There wasn't much damage from the leaky battery corrosion but it has all been neutralized and traces repaired. Pots and switches cleaned and lubed, key contacts cleaned. Works like new.
Full factory calibration and tuning procedure done within the last month. Factory presets re-installed. This thing sounds simply awesome.
Great physical condition- just some minor marking on the 'wood' here and there."

Published on Feb 10, 2016 Launchpad for iOS

"We’re adding MIDI Sync Output to Launchpad for iPad. This will allow you to use other apps and external hardware at the same time whilst locked to the beat."

iTunes: Novation Launchpad - Novation

Novation Launchpad for iPad – Launchpad Mini Performance | Full Compass

Launchpad Minis on eBay | Launchpad Minis on Amazon

"The Novation Launchpad Mini MK2 is Novation's most compact and affordable Launchpad grid instrument for Ableton Live. It offers all the functionality of the original Launchpad in a smaller and more portable controller that is ideal for compact setups.

Launchpad Mini displays your Ableton Live session view on 64 mini pads, which let you trigger clips, play drum racks, control your mixer, FX and make amazing performance videos for YouTube. All the pads are backlit with multi-colored LEDs that show you which clips are loaded, playing, and recording. Separate buttons around the outside of the grid are designed to trigger scenes, switch modes, and navigate your session in Ableton Live.

Launchpad Mini is compact and tough enough to throw in your bag, so you can take it anywhere. It will work the moment you plug it into your laptop and you won’t need any drivers or power cables, because it’s class compliant and bus-powered via USB. You can also connect it to your iPad via a Camera Connection Kit to control all sorts of iOS music apps, like Novation's free Launchpad App.

You can combine Launchpad Mini with any other Launch products, like Launch Control and Launchkey Mini, to create a compact and hands-on studio setup. It is designed for Ableton Live, but integrates immediately with FL Studio as well. It also comes with everything you need to start making music, including Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station virtual instruments, and 1 GB of samples from Loopmasters."

Animodule M1xxor eurorack audio CV mixer sequencer

Published on Feb 10, 2016 Flux302 of

"New Module from
price $199 8 hp, depth 33mm
available now
How It Works:
-Signal goes in to Channel Input (it's DC connected so you can use Audio OR CV).
-Signal is attenuated via Channel Attenuator.
-Signal is allowed to pass through to Individual Channel Output AND Mixer Output IF Gate Input is High OR Switch is depressed.

-Clock Pulse High in to Clock Input Moves Sequence forward 1 Step.
-The Channel that the step is On will be open*
-CV can be used to control the Sequencer via the CV Input.
-There is a resolution of 5 steps (4 channels and a 0 step allowing for all channels to be cleared from the Sequencer).
-There is an attenuator and offset to help properly scale and position your CV Input.
-CV Input is expecting 0V to +5V, but with the Attenuator and Offset will easily work with -/+5V.
-Clock and CV maybe used in tandem resulting in some mind melting rhythms!
-In that case the Clock will step forward 1 step from it's current position (unless it's on step 4 in which case it will roll over to step 1)
-The Clock used in conjunction with the CV will bitshift the sequence to the left, incrementing the static position of the step counter by 1 (wrapping around to step 1 after step 4).
-Fer' Instance, 2 Clock counts and CV is on 0. Step will be on Channel 2
-Gate High in to Reset will reset Clock counter to step 1 OR if Clock Input is being used in conjunction with the CV Input the reset will clear the Clock Counter and return the step to where the CV indicates it should be without any BitShifting

*Gate Input / Switches in conjunction with Sequencer:
-The Sequencer and the Gate Input / Switches combine in a XOR gate. If one is High and the other is not, that channel will be open. If BOTH are High, that channel will be closed.

Despite the lengthy description, the M1xXOR is very intuitive (and unbelievably Fun!) to use.
Each Channel (and the Mixer) May be used independently of the Sequencer.
So if you're not in the mood for Rhythmic Insanity You still have a gateable 4 Channel DC-Coupled Mixer AND/OR 4 independent and gateable channels of Attenuation."

Arp 2600 with 3604P Keyboard

via this auction

"This one has the more sought after Moog filter. Also 8 years ago it had extensive work done by a professional vintage synth technician. The power supply was reworked maybe even replaced as I can't remember, A few of the boards had there epoxy coating removed. Beneficial should potential service need to be done . All semi internally routed patches were tested and repaired,Some jacks were replaced with Switchcraft equivalents. Since then, it has lived in a home studio environment and has been solid working.

Known issues; the right speaker does not work, however when you patch this MONO synthesizers audio out to both the Left and Right output jacks, It's mono signal does flow through like it should. You may want to calibrate if you see fit.

All patching points are 1/8th/3.5mm and this will easily plug into today's common Euroracks as well as computer based systems. No need for adapters unless your using 1/4" or banana jacks."
