MTI AO-1 Auto Orchestra Analog Drum Machine

Uploaded on Mar 6, 2016 Dave Burns

via this auction

"This is the very rare MTI Auto Orchestra AO-1 drum machine / bass synth / strings / chords accompaniment unit + bass pedals, volume pedal, stand and cover for the front of the box.
This thing is pretty insane. The Drum machine sound is off the hook!
Here is a video I took of this actual machine - VIDEO. In the video, the unit is connected straight to my iPhone using an iRig adapter with no pre amp or anything in between.
A lil about the MTI AO-1 - It has many different drum presets and each preset button has 2 variations. Each drum voice has its own cancel button (!) so you can choose whatever elements of the beat you want (say just kick drum, kick + snare, cancel the cymbal, cancel conga, etc.) so the combinations are pretty much endless.
Very powerful bass sound. reminiscent of the TB 303. Strings section and chords section.
When no drum preset is chosen, you can play the bass and strings manually using the pedals. When a preset is chosen, the pedals will determine the chord.
The volume pedal is not the original pedal. It is a modified Crybaby pedal. In the original pedal, you were able to switch between major and minor. With this pedal you can only control the volume.
The volume knobs of the different sections can be pulled for constant signal. When they are pulled, the volume pedal no longer controls the volume.
Also included is the original stand and the cover for the box.

The unit is fully functional. It has a little bit of hiss as expected from a 30-40 years old unit."

Audulus CS Looper Module

Published on Mar 6, 2016 Bimini Road

Get Audulus for: iOS | Mac | Windows/Linux

"This Audulus 3 module loops knob motions. In this set up, it is acting as a knob-controlled sequencer, turning recorded knob motions into 8 discrete pitches. CS stands for "Control Signal." This is to distinguish it from an AS or Audio/Alternating Signal looper (which would need 44.1k buckets for 1 second of loop time).

This module has 8 buckets, or 8 evenly distributed numbers that make up the entirety of the loop. An LFO controls which step is being read. Values are changed only when a change in value is detected from the knob. Under the "8 Bucket" text is a knob that acts as a "loop display."

The output of this module is multiplied and pushed through a scale quantizer to become the pitch information for Sub Ek, a mini subtractive synthesizer, that is clocked by CL!K.

Versions with more buckets are coming soon."

New Hardware Instrument From DASZ INSTRUMENTS Coming to the Musikmesse

See the DASZ INSTRUMENTS label for more!

You'll find some screen grabs from the video further below. It appears to be a knob box with custom color LED buttons. Sequencer & more? Note this is the first DASZ INSTRUMENTS post on the site.

Update: this will be a new instrument, not a controller, although it can also function as one.

The video description, as always:
"For over 3 years we have been quietly developing a radically innovative performance instrument. Its focus is to simplify, unify, and broaden your creative workflow, freeing you to focus on your music rather than your setup."

And a little more from DASZ INSTRUMENTS:

Macbeth Elements vs MI Elements

Published on Mar 3, 2016 Dudadius

"Patch Notes:

In reality, this video is more an exploration of the Macbeth Elements than a head-to-head smackdown. The Mutable Instruments Elements is just used as a counter melody, really. But as the naming controversy was brewing right as I ordered the Macbeth two years ago (worth the wait!), I knew that once I received it, a patch featuring the two Elements would be the first thing I do.

This patch is driven by the Monome Teletype, being triggered by Monome Meadowphysics. There are two sequence rows in the tracker, one for sending note data to each Elements. Other scripts are altering the length and some of the notes of each sequence at counted intervals, triggered by other rows of MP (Scripts are shown at 11:06, if you’re interested).

Monome White Whale is triggering the percussion. Things get a little wobbly at one point, as Meadowphysics starts dividing outside of the beat, but never mind… Audio Damage Neuron is going through a Mutable Instruments Clouds (sorry, Chris, hehe) for a little granular beat variety. And the hat is Noise Engineering Ataraxic Translatron through an Intellijel Polaris. There’s a touch of Modcan Dual Delay on the latter. All mixed through Cwejman MX4S and Intellijel Dubmix.

The Macbeth really is special. It of course has the ‘sound’ many of you know and love of Ken’s instruments (to me, big and organic) but it’s the arrangement of controls that turns it into a real instrument that begs to be played. That’s what I tried to feature here. I switch from filter mode B to A at 8:36, so you can hear the difference. I can’t recall the difference between the two modes now, because I know Ken played with a lot of variations, but they each have their own sweet spots, with the A mode have a more gradual cutoff slope. The interaction of the spring reverb and the tape delay simulator brings a ton of vibe to the table, for sure.

Anyway, fantastic work Ken, I feel lucky to have an Elements! Of course, I always love Olivier’s devilishly clever and deep modules as well. Enjoy!"

"Here's a selection of presets I contributed to the factory patches for the DSI Oberheim OB-6. No midi or post processing, these sounds are purely from the OB6 and played live or via the built-in sequencer. I enjoy taking part in the process thoroughly. Enjoy these warbly tones, squirmy PWMs and wet SEM filters."

254e Pulses and Transposes

Published on Mar 5, 2016 boobtube356

"254e prototype test demonstrating pitch transpose and pulse processing. A sequence from the 250e is offset in the 254e, and the amount of offset is controlled by switching among three presets. Meanwhile, the 250e pulses are modulated in the 254e using a 281e LFO, and the pulses go straight to the 292e. The sound source is a 258v."

What song is this from or similar to? It reminds me of something but I can't place it.

Update: think I found it.

MaxiKorg/Poly Ensemble adapter HSP-1 by Harpoon Cables

Published on Mar 5, 2016 Stephen Cain

"Test run of Harpoon Cables TRS to 5 pin DIN adapter specifically wired to enable modern expression pedals to be used on vintage Korg synths requiring the FK-4 pedal...!blank/..."

"The HSP-01 cable allows you to use a modern TRS expression pedal with your Korg Polyphonic Ensemble. Simply plug the 5 pin DIN connector into your synth and then use a standard TRS cable to connect the 1/4" female output of this cable to the 1/4" input on your expression pedal. The original FK-4 expression pedal featured a on/off switch where this cable does not. Therefore this cable is considered "always on". Price starts at $12.

*Please note, we also offer this cable with a male 1/4" end rather than female. The male version of this cable is called the HSP-02.

**This cable is not affiliated with KORG or its subsidiaries in any regard nor is it a KORG product. The user takes on full responsibilities and liabilities. Due to the age of the instruments intended for this cable's use, the manufacturer can not guarantee this cables performance on the user's specific instrument."
