Timestream - 80s Scifi film score

Published on Apr 12, 2016 Mitch Wiseman

"I decided to make some cheesy 80s inspired synth music.
I did a first pass with the moog [DSI] prophet and nord, and then added more layers as I went.
Moog and mini brute are on bass. Prophet has two pads and an arp. The moog lead is going through an MXR carbon copy, and into some valhalla reverb. The Cellotar is direct into my scarlett 2i2 with some post processing."

Happy Birthday Herbie Hancock!

Today is Herbie Hancock's birthday!

Found this great shot of Herbie with a Moog Minimoog & Sennheiser VSM201 vocoder via @moogmusicinc.

BTW, unless he owned more than one VSM201, that exact VSM201 was up for auction here back in 2011. Crazy to think someone out there has that little bit of synth history.  Curious what happened to the Mini.

The AnTonus 2600 TTSH Based ARP 2600 Clone

Antonus 2600, el clon ARP 2600 de Toni Gutiérrez

Published on Mar 17, 2016 Hispasonic

"Bebiendo de la experiencia TTSH, Toni Gutiérrez comercializa a día de hoy su propia clonación del clásico sintetizador ARP 2600. En un intermedio entre viajes, hablamos con él."

AnTonus 2600 basic sounds samples

Published on Apr 12, 2016 wutierson

Here is a compilation of basic sounds coming from the Antonus 2600 This is an ARP 2600 clone, based on TTSH format but using different pcb and with some adjust and tweaking to get the same spirit of the famous ARP 2600 grey face (transistor leader VCF)
All the sounds are coming from the Antonus2600 synth, even the true spring reverb effect. Not external eq, compression and fx's were used, it's only direct sound output from the instrument.
The intention of this video is to show some essences of the 2600 sound to listen and see how the synths responds at oscillator, filter envelopes and VCA. It's not necessary to show extremely complex patches to show the living sound and musicality of the parameters, for example the ADSR times and curves, the VCA response. You can see how can reach good lead sounds, bass, percussion and drones with only a few connections. This is the magic of the 2600 original design, alive, warm and musical from scratch.
If you want more complex patches with sequences, noises, fx's... there is a lot of 2600 videos around youtube... I do this to show the basic and classic sound of this instrument.
Here's the resume of the sounds of this video:
1-Saw wave sounds
2-Square and pulse sounds.
3-PWM sounds.
4-Percusion sounds using only filter with/without pre-amp distortion
5-R2D2 "torture" session :) Here a more complicated patch to do this.

"Many thanks to Jean-Luc of Polaxis for sending a Talko module for me to try out and for his extreme patience in waiting for me to do something with it! This video isn't everything I had hoped to do but I'll do another one that is more creative down the road. This isn't much different than Jean-Luc's own video and in many ways I like his better! But for now . . . ."

Uncertain [Live Modular]

Published on Apr 12, 2016 Ícaro Ferre

"This is my first attempt on capturing a live performance focused on feelings and emotions rather than technical details. While I really enjoy the technical side of music, sometimes it's nice to go back to the basic concepts of what music is and what it's really all about.

The entire piece was composed and performed using just my modular synthesizer (a 12U Eurorack system).

Recorded on August 6th, 2015."


Colliding Feelings [Live Modular]

Published on Apr 12, 2016

"After travelling more than 14h to play a gig , I returned to my home-studio and decided to work on a patch that could represent how I feel being both a performing artist and an introvert and how this often lead to an interesting mix of different (and often opposing) feelings.

The bassline was created using the Mutable Instruments Braids (_|_|_|_|_ mode) going through the Doepfer A-124 Wasp Filter.
The other two synth layers were created using the Synthesis Technology e350 and the Mutable Instruments Tides, both going into the Make Noise Optomix. I'm also using the Expert Sleepers Disting as a clocked delay for the second synth layer.

I'm also using the EMW Digi-Drum to create the bass drums and the Tiptop Audio Z3000 mk2 to create an old-school lead sound.
Only FX used was the ValhallaDSP VintageVerb."

Elka Synthex Rare Vintage Analog Polysynth Synthesizer Keyboard SN 705

via this auction

"Here's the rare chance you've been waiting for!
Legendary Elka Synthex analog polysynth.

What makes this one special:
117v power set for USA, very rare since most of these are European set 220v.
This is an early unit serial number 705 (they started at 700 so it's the 5th one built).

Functional: 100% fully functional. Everything is working as it should, performs superbly. All keys trigger perfectly, the keyboard plays smoothly, pots are scratchy free and turn easily and smooth.

Cosmetics: Besides a few minor nicks in the wood, the front panel and internal electronics look mint like new shape. What's so incredibly is that is looks like it was never even touched or played, and most likely kept unused sitting in its case all these years. Take a look at the detailed pictures below including the internal pictures to make sure you like it. The internals look perfect like new with no layers of grim or dust, and the panel graphics are crisp and easy to read without finger smudges or wear. This Synthex has not been abused and used with rust and dying parts like you might find on other old synths, this is a gem ready to last another 40 years!

Sound: The Synthex one of the legendary great polysynths with huge thick analog pads. So warm and creamy. The build quality is incredible, big knobs & high quality wood. The sound is amazing, huge lush analog awesomeness. In my opinion sounds better than a SCI Prophet 5 & as a polysynth second only to perhaps the Yamaha CS80.

This is a great chance to own a legendary synth. Don't miss out!"
