Eurorack Modular Patch Sample

Published on May 1, 2016 Randy Piscione

"A couple of days ago I posted a shot of the modular with some new stuff in it but not quite patched up. So, here is what it looks like patched. And there's a little video. All sounds are coming from the modular simultaneously. It is generating the percussion parts and sequencers and also providing the lead line that I'm playing and the delay spicing up the lead line. So this is recorded live, one pass. There is no post-processing.

It's a bit of a list of modules 'though, with a master clock, 3 sequencers, a sequential switch, a quantizer, an attenuverter, two percussion modules, a delay, 5 LFOs, 10 VCOs, 5 mixers (actually 6, there's an output mixer), 4 filters, 6 envelope generators and 5 VCAs."

1st Shot of the MATRIXSYNTH Baseball Cap In the Wild

You might remember the pic of the MATRIXSYNTH trucker hat. Here's the first of the MATRIXSYNTH baseball cap donned by MATRIXSYNTH Member, Joel Braverman (SoundCloud, YouTube, Twitter), along with a MATRIXSYNTH T-Shirt of course.

via Joel:

"Red vs Blue guitar-synths & MatrixSynth swag (pic), Casio MG-510, Roland G-300 & gr-505, also in pic because I'm running out of room for it all, k5000s and Mininova.

Nothing recorded yet with these two wonderful instruments though, soon.

And of course, thanks for the awesome hat!"

Huge THANK YOU to Joel, and all MATRIXSYNTH Members, for supporting the site! It helps in more ways than you know!

Update: second pic added with the blue Roland G-505 guitar synth controller.

Vintage 1970s Waldeck Sound Synthesizer Semi Modular Desktop Synth

via this auction

[Update: more info posted here.]

Here's one never featured on the site before. A Waldek Sound Synthesizer. If it is indeed from the 1970s, I'm curious about it's history and why it never came up before. The following is the description from the listing. If you know more, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email. Note the listing has it as Waldek, but you can see it is Waldeck on the bottom right.

"Talk about weird gear! Are you brave enough for the WALDEK modular synthesizer? I’m working on a demo for you guys but obviously with nothing to go except what you see, this will take an evening or two. Unit is labeled as a "Waldek Sound Synthesizer". There is no manufacturing date or city/country of origin (I believe it to be US Made). The Instructional manual and connecting cables are missing, although they appear to be RCA style. It has 3 separate channels of Oscillation. And has controls for, Ring, Noise, Pre-amp, Envelope, Bandpass & Lowpass Filters, Pan and Reverb. The unit powers up as indicated by the pilot light. Beyond that there is no certainty of operation and the buyer is buying this with this full knowledge. The unit is hand signed on the back,"Weldek- Z. Waldek ATW Technology". My research has failed to identify this company or individual through an online search engine. Although, other individuals who own the same unit, seem to date it late 60s early 70s but have no further information beyond that. This unit may be a genuine relic as an example of early synth history, or it may be adapted to experimental uses in unconventional instruments other than Keyboards. Either way the mystery and intrigue is worth the price of admission."

This one in via Bradley. I believe this is the first time I've seen images of one in the flesh. There is a scan of the advert for one below pulled from Scott From Canada's synth scans. There was one previous mention of the EP-6060 on the site in this massive synth selloff, but no images.

This is a dual voice
Via the listing:
"Roland Vintage Combo Piano in great working and physical condition. A few scuffs consistent with age, please refer to photos. Great arpeggiator and EQ section, this is a very versatile and RARE electronic piano, and built like a tank so it's perfect for the road or studio. Use the handy DIN Sync port to lock the arpeggiator to your old drum machines or favorite DAW (converter needed)."

Via the flyer below:

“A Sound Two Layers Thick

The new Roland EP-6060 Combo Piano gives you two sound sources to play with for a sound that’s two layers thick. Two separate voices that can each be set for Tone (Piano 1, Piano 2 and Harps.), Octave, EQ, and Decay resulting in a sound you can really get your teeth into. Tune the two voices against each other for even more depth. That’s just for starters, the rest includes and Arpeggiator, Split Keyboard, Upper Harmony (for block chording when only one note is played), and a Transpose feature that lets you play a tune in any key at the push of one button. All this for only $895.00. So get going, Roland’s just given you another good reason to visit your music dealer.”

"This sticking point in this new age with the 303’s was attempting to slave or incorporate into your modern set up without the DIN step the reputable QUICKSILVER CPU!!!

USB connection to slave with your chosen DAW giving you the full sync and editing ability from your PC or MAC whilst retaining full hands on control.

As usual has some minor mark on the casing as seen on the pictures but the face is clean with no pot fading, and printed letters clearly visible and legible.

Comes with a non original power adapter and Roland carry case...

The Quicksilver 303 is a replacement CPU for the TB-303 Bass Synthesizer. With a completely rewritten operating system, all of the creative obstacles to programming amazing sequences have been removed. The experience still remains uniquely “303”.

The Quicksilver 303 CPU can be used with or without MIDI. So, you can still benefit from the new features of the CPU without drilling any holes in your TB-303!
Of course, there are also great new MIDI capabilities. MIDI control over filter cutoff, “MIDI Control mode” which allows the 303 to be “remotely controlled” from any device that can send MIDI note messages. The sequencer can send and receive MIDI notes and MIDI clock and you can also record incoming MIDI to patterns in realtime.

All functions of the Quicksilver 303 are available while the sequencer is running, this includes programming patterns, changing modes and new live performance functions like “ALL ACCENT” “CHOP” and “BUMP”.
Entering new patterns is now interactive, with the capability to hear changes as the pattern plays, and the ability to move forwards and backwards to edit specific notes.

The Quicksilver 303 is equipped with USB connectivity for OS upgrades and USB MIDI. Allowing the Quicksilver 303 to be directly connected to a USB host!
Because all data is stored into internal EEPROM, batteries are no longer required to maintain memory. All internal memory can also be dumped using MIDI sysex messages for sharing or backup."

Roland System 104 vintage analog sequencer

via this auction

"vintage Roland System 104 sequencer, part of the famous System 100 synthesizer. The sequencer is working except the 'continue' button which is not working. Two sockets of the 'parallel outputs' are been modified to very small ones. We didn't had the opportunity to test this sockets. Because of this technical issues we sell the unit as-is, for spares or parts only. It needs service, but keep in mind that the other functions are working fine."

Prophet-600 Analog Synthesizer Sounddesign Demo "Vielspiel"

Published on May 1, 2016 LANDOSONIC


A sounddesign experiment.
Unrivaled vintage fatness, as you can hear,
one could call it a quest for obesity.

Featuring the Dual-VCO analog polysynth "Prophet-600"
built by Sequential Circuits in the 1980's.

The unit I own contains the Gligli CPU/firmware upgrade.
That greatly enhances the sound and usability of this synth.

The DAW host "Ableton Live" was used to forward arpeggios to the P-600, capture the synth's output and also embellish those audio data with DAW FX and third-party plugins.

Composed and produced by Landosonic
in November 2015."

ARP Odyssey White Face - the original one

Published on May 1, 2016 MrSynthmania

"A short demo of the original ARP Odyssey. This one was built in 1973 and it´s the first Odyssey. The White Face, also Model 2800, has a different filter type than the later Odysseys. This is a 12 dB/octave type with resonance and it sounds very smooth.

Sorry, I do not play any melodies or maybe hits. This demo shows the rough sound of the original ARP Odyssey MK 1 with different settings."
