Doug Lynner & Elby Designs Classic Mystery Serge in Eurorack

via Doug Lynner on Modular Grid:

"Here is the first glimpse at one of ten EuroSerge system configurations that I have created for Elby Designs. Their new EuroSerge is a full, classic Serge Analog Modular Synthesizer, including the entire catalog of first generation Serge modules in a truly modular format, reimagined for the 3u format. This configuration is based on my Mystery Serge, the first 'commercial' Serge. The configuration will give new adapters a well used system from which to explore their own configurations. Following I will be publishing systems of all sizes for a wide range of users. It has been my pleasure to work together on this with Serge Tcherepnin, and Laurie Biddulph and I hope that you enjoy this new opportunity to include official Serge designs in your 3u system.

Doug Lynner

Here is as link to the Mystery Serge - the inspiration for this system."

Octave The CAT Model 1853

via this auction

via the seller: "This is a beautiful analog CAT SRM model 1853. I bought this new in 1978 and am the original owner. It has had VERY little use.

This machine is basically a ARP Odyssey clone. Incidentally ARP sued Cat over this!

This is a VERY rich and phat sounding machine. It has one over the mini-moog because it is possible to have all waveforms at once (each with their own slider) instead of just switching between them like the Moog. Great sounding filter too. Somewhere between Moog & Oberheim ; best of both worlds!

The Cat is a monophonic/ duophonic analog synthesizer with 2 oscillators capable of square and sawtooth waveforms. VCO 1 also has a triangle waveform. Each of the waveforms can be played simultaneously and mixed together and there are additional sub-octave oscillators on each oscillator to blend new and interesting sounds.

Everything works. All keys, controls, outputs, etc.

As it has been stored for many years, you will probably want to have is professionally serviced to clean the contacts and update the caps."

(Hitachi) Lo-D HMS-30 Rare Analogue Synth with Manual

via this auction

See the Hitachi label at the bottom of this post for previous posts include a video demo of the HMS-30.

"One of the rarest synth ever. As Internet says, only 300 was made. This one have a serial number 9000154C.

There is a full (all keys at same time) polyphony, two stage tone modificator, multilayered LFOs, 8-pattern rhythm generator, and programmable sequencer. Also, it have a stereo output, so it is possible to play with pan for some features.

Original user manual (Japanese) included.

Capacitors in power supply was replaced for prophylactic reasons, and output voltage precisely adjusted.

Pots and switches moves without any cracks or noises. The tune is fine.

Machine looks like a fully working, but I can not test all features of programmable sequencer (LEDs response correctly then I pressing buttons on it - thats all I'v figured out) because I can't read Japanese.

Cosmetically it looks great, but have few unperfections. Please see photos.

Please note:

The synthesizer is made for japanese market and work only at ~100-110v. If you living in countries, where voltage 220-240v, you need a step-down transformer."

"(c) 2016 by AnalogAudio1

The Solina String-Ensemble is identical with the ARP String-Ensemble. It is the first and original "String Machine". Fully polyphonic with 4 presets and 2 monophonic bass presets!

Many manufacturers tried to copy it (Logan String Melody, Elka Rhapsody, Crumar Multiman, Farfisa String Orchestra, Jen String Machine, Siel Orchestra, just to name a few). In the seventies, every organ manufacturer had a string machine to offer...
but the Solina remains the best (or at least one of the best) with its fat, unique and charming sound, which can not be sampled successfully.

A great machine, which was used by many professionals.

Edgar Froese (Tangerine Dream) used it on many records (Green Desert, Aqua, Le Park, Underwater Sunlight, etc.), Herbie Hancock (Secrets), AIR (Moon Safari), Mike Oldfield, David Bowie, Richard Wright / Pink Floyd (Shine On You Crazy Diamond), Elton John (Song for Guy), Nick Straker (A walk in the park), Geoff Downes / Buggles (Video killed the radio star), Roxy Music (Both Ends Burning), the Bee Gees and the Carpenters (on live performances) ...

In the intro I played the Solina along with a Schulte Compact Phasing A."

Buchla 266e Source of Uncertainty

via this auction

"The 266e Source of Uncertainty provides a general source of musical unpredictability. Operation is divided into four sections, each of which perform a unique function.

Three type of noise are available, with corresponding dedicated outputs. White noise is electrically flat, but acoustically balanced toward the high end of the spectrum ( 3 db/octave). Integrated white noise has a low spectral bias (-3 db/octave). Musically flat noise has a flat spectrum (constant energy per octave) and is a particularly useful source for subsequent processing.

Fluctuating Random Voltages are continuously variable, with voltage control of bandwidth over the range of .05Hz to 50Hz, making possible changes that vary from barely perceptible movement to rapid fluctuation.
Quantized Random Voltages change upon receiving pulses. The number of states is voltage-controllable from two to 24, and their distribution can be varied both spatially and temporally.

Stored Random Voltages have three parameters under voltage control. Degree varies the amount of randomness; Chaos alters the distribution from just a little uncertain to total chaos; Skew biases the randomness toward one extreme or the other.

All settings of the 266e can be stored and recalled under control of the 225e or 206e Preset Manager."

The dualo keyboard is very quick to master. Thanks to the dualo principle, scales and chords are represented by geometrical patterns, therefore easy to play and learn. Whether you are beginner or musician, it only takes a few minutes to play and improvise.


116 pressure sensitive pads
3 touchable sliders
3 touchable buttons
3-axis gyro movement sensor


116 editable sounds
4-preset memory per sound
1 Muti-effect for each track

Multitrack looper

7 simultaneous tracks
58-song memory, 24 loops each
Metronome, quantizer, score player

Thanks to its ergonomics, the du-touch empower your creativity and your spontaneity. It allows you to play and compose in any musical style, in a matter of seconds, without the use of a computer.

Compact & mobile

With only 28 cm high (11,2 inch) for 1,2 kg (2,6 lb) and a 8-hour battery life in playing mode, the du-touch will follow you everywhere.

Connected and upgradable

Thanks to du-station software, import and export your compositions to your computer and share them with the dualo community.

The audiowerkstatt mini-midi-step-seq

From the makers of the midi-restarter & midi-clock-divider, we have a new mini desktop hardware sequencer. Details via

"The audiowerkstatt mini-midi-step-seq is a MIDI-sequencer (no gate/CV), which is based on a classic analog step-sequencer:

Programming with potentiometers (no endless-dial and no detent)!
Only one track!
No pattern-storage!
No internal clock (only usable as MIDI-slave)!
No display!

It is optimized for live use, especially jam-sessions, but can also be used to give you new ideas, if you are stuck in your main sequencer.

All settings can be changed while it's running.
2x 8-step-pattern, that can be used alternatively or chained to a 16-step-pattern.
Normally the pattern changes, when the one that is played ends. With a special "jump"-button it is possible to jump from one pattern to the other immediately without loosing synchronization.
It is possible to edit the pattern that is playing or edit the other pattern.

BURG - Album Movement 11 (Roland TR-8, Microbrute, KORG volca, Strymon Timeline)

Published on Mar 24, 2016 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Going minimal, here is another track.. a bit funkier with 909 drums. This one is just, well.. polyrythmic deluxe... you just need to float into this one and let yourself go, dont go look for the 4/4 beat.. its not there.

Adding kaoss pad loops on the top that are ambient and broken/glitchy, building up the eerie feel i wanted to create.. almost like in a nightmare, the mayhem never stops.

Small setup as in movement 10, this time with the microbrute playing the main sequence, using the SQ-1 as an extra mayhem on the filter CV halfway through. The keys and microbrute both go through the strymon.. then to the TR8 and out through the Kaoss pad.

Enjoy, let me know what you think !"
