Custom Black Alesis Andromeda A6 by Thomas Heck

Super nice custom black Alesis Andromeda A6 by Thomas Heck. It's actually a new panel overlay. Only 20 have been produced. If you'd like one you can reach Thomas at heckthomas34 at The following is what Thomas had to say about them:

"As you can imagine, I like the Andromeda. This is an analog synth with unbelievably huge possibilities, but I have never liked the choice of materials and colors for the instrument's shell/case.

I made twenty overlays (they will be the only ones made), to give the possibility of having a black Andromeda. The side panels are just prototypes.

The new overlay can be applied over the old one, but it does require unscrewing the two plastic caps at each end of the ribbon controller, as this is needed to open the synth. However, it is not difficult to do."

Audio Sampler - 512 Stage Bucket Brigade Chip

Published on Mar 26, 2016 Bimini Road

Get Audulus for: iOS | Mac | Windows/Linux

"This is a model of a 512 stage bucket brigade chip. Essentially, it is an expansion of the Control Signal Looper - but instead of 8 steps it has 512, making it suitable for capturing and looping quick bursts of audio.

Make sure you play with the max step number - increasing it past 512 basically gives you a PWM wave. Also make sure you modulate the trim of the Saw wave, or even try attaching a Sine or Triangle (just not Square).

For an explanation of this looping concept, refer to this video tutorial:

Oberheim Xpander Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

Odd memory saving problem on this one.

"The Xpander is a huge sounding vintage analog monster. This machine is incredibly deep, essentially it's like a 6 voice polyphonic modular with 12 oscillators, 5 envelopes, 5 LFO's and ton more. It has recently been serviced and refurbished with a new front panel, sides and power supply. All voices function and tune correctly and it passes the diagnostics routines. A small bag of spare parts (fuses and a couple of transformers) are included with the sale.

It appears this one has been modified with a voltage switch, allowing it to be switched from 100v, 115v & 130v to 200v, 220v & 240v. I've never had cause to use this, so I don't know if it works or not, but could come in handy for international buyers, world tours and so on.

In spite of all the work don ae on it, there is still one minor issue. Certain patch locations (any with a number 8 or 9 specifically) cannot be saved to from the front panel. Saving patches works fine when doing it from a computer, the battery has been replaced and internal diagnostic routines don't report any problems. It doesn't seem to be a mechanical problem either as the buttons function fine otherwise. I have no idea whats causing it!

That issue aside, this Xpander looks, sounds and feels great. A lot of time and money was spent to bring it to this condition and I'm sure the next owner will be very happy with it."

"Rings is being sent into the clouds which is going into the intellijel azimuth for some width.
The Elements is being triggered by a 4ms clock multiplier gate and the B output of the intellijel µscale. The µscale is being sent a sequence from the Make Noise Pressure points which is being reversed in direction every 8th step from the Delptronics Triggerman. The bass is coming from the square wave of the Tiptop z3000 which is being triggerd off the 1x 4ms clock multiplier. The cv notes are coming from the µscale b output. The b output is being shifted using a Triggerman Output and being limited using the pass thru knob."

BURG - Album Movement 12 (Elektron Analog Four, Microbrute, KORG volca sample)

Published on Mar 26, 2016 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Ok, so this was a really painful track... i wanted to make it short, sub 6 minutes.. and well, i ended up doing 12 !! takes of it.. i missed and hit the wrong keys, missed the drop, solo was off, drum beat was backwards, forgot to start one of the cams.,, and so on.. . It finally got to the level that my batteries in my cameras got depleted so i had to stop everything and recharge them.. so i decided to chill out, grab a couple of beers, did something else for an hour or so.. and got back into the game. (i hate to give up).

So the track feels really weird to me now, repetitive.. .but i hope that just because i recorded it so many times so im hearing all the errors from previous takes in my mind. :) Hope it feels fresh for you guys.

session is minimal like the two previous ones, microbrute + volca sample into to the A4 through the kaoss pad (zoom is not doing anything on this track).

cheers !!"
