1980s style - live mode

Published on Jun 5, 2016 SynthMania

"A ditty in late '80s House style. Roland TR-707 and Roland Juno-60, multitracked, Alesis MidiVerb II patch 16 reverb, and a few additional effects (compressors, eq, delay) in the DAW - all but the drums and bass played live. That's it.

P.S. Looking forward to the first dufus who writes 'har, har, sounds like Yazoo's 'Situation', har har'. It does not want to sound, nor it was inspired by that great, classic song that we all love. This was not inspired by Situation, but by late '80s House."

Vintage/Historical Kurzweil K- 250 Keyboard/Synthesizer w/ POD SN 84100232

via this auction

"Vintage Kurzweil #K-250 (88-Key) Synthesizer Keyboard w/ POD (Pedal Controls and Power Supply). Instrument is in very good condition and everything works as it should. It has been used exclusively for Feature Film Music Scores. It has seen significant deployment through the years having been used on such features as: 'Star Trek III'('84), Cocoon ('85), 'Aliens' ('86), 'An American Tale' ('86), 'Willow' ('88) and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" ('89) and more. This Particular Instrument has a rich History and would be a significant and desirable addition to any Music or Film Aficionado's Collection. This instrument has been well maintained and properly stored. It comes with 2--Anvil ATA Travel Cases which will require an internal overhaul with 'new foam'. The original foam protection has (Bio) degraded and needs replacement. There are some 'superficial' scratches but nothing serious. The control panel is missing 4 or 5 Control Knobs, however, the capacity for control is not affected. There are other K-250s out there, but we feel this is a 'One of a Kind' because of its rich and extensive history!"

Korg NS5R Factory Demo Songs

Published on Jun 5, 2016 Sound Programming

"Factory demo songs from the Korg NS5R half-rack ROM-based synthesizer module.

Song List:

1. 2000 Fever (0:06)
2. MissionMan (4:30)

The NS5R was part of the "N series" of Korg synthesizers that included the N1, N1R, N5, N5EX, N264, N364, NS5R, and NX5R. They followed the "X series" in the mid to late 1990's and all had similar sound sets, but with varying capabilities and ROM sizes."

Moog Minimoog Model D (2016 Reissue) Audio Sneak Preview

Published on Jun 5, 2016 Synthtopia

"At Moogfest 2016, Moog reintroduced the Minimoog Model D analog synthesizer.

We'e previously shared an overview of the Model D from Mioogfest, and a look inside the new synth.

This video features the sound of the new Model D - monophonic audio, direct from the synth, panned center. This is primarily a preview of the new synth's sound, so what dialog there is has been mixed so that it's very quiet."

Introducing Tangle - New Modular Synth Plugin for Mac and Windows

Tangle Trailer

Published on Jun 2, 2016

"Tangle is a new modular synth plugin for Mac and Windows. It's a lot simpler to use than many other modular synths you've seen before. Includes modulatable sequencers, FM, wavetables, filters, full polyphony, plus an animated & zoomable vector interface."

via Sound Guru

"You don't usually see the words "simple" and "modular synth" in the same sentence. But that's what Tangle aims to be. Just 12 components, and a canvas to put them on. Hook them up to explore with new combinations and cross-pollinations of FM, AM, subtractive, and comb delay synthesis.

Tangle is in early access beta, and has a reduced price. Beta buyers will receive free updates including all 1.x releases. Contribute to development and influence new features!


On the canvas, minature components represent elements in your sound. They show information about the object's settings, and quick controls for important parameters. Selecting one or more objects brings up a detailed panel for each object, which exposes the full controls.

Components are built for simplicity and flexibility. For example, each oscillator has an internal ADSR envelope to reduce clutter on the graph. But if you want, you can turn it off and plug in a multi-stage envelope instead. Another example is a delay component which can be used both in a regular way and as comb filter for Karplus string synthesis.

Oscillator blend between several waveforms, use as audio or LFO

Filter choose from zero-delay, warm 24db, or 12db SVF types.

Noise includes unusual types like crackle, hiss & pink.

Envelope infinite curve and step stages, loops, modulatable times.

Sequencer modulatable 'Cartesian' style inspired by MakeNoise.

Macro knob and XY Pad for control and DAW automation.

Quantise for restricting control signal values

MixPan with several algorithm for unusual mix & pan modulations

Delay in seconds, beats or hertz, with modulatable time & cutoff

Expression capture velocity, aftertouch etc.

Scope view signal from any component on the canvas."

Oops, I meant with Thonk:

"Bundle includes full kits, with everything you need to build:

Turing Machine Mk II

Details here.

Someone should make a synth thong for the next synth meet. Onesie thong? OK, I think I'm making myself ill now.

Side note: I actually accidentally wrote Thong in the title when creating this post. Figured I might as well leave it for a little synth humor, and well... made you look! :) The free T of course is real, so do check it out at Thonk!

"Up for grabs is a well-cared for ESQ-1.
(1) Ensoniq ESQ-1 61-key Hybrid (Digital control & waveforms through analog filter) Synthesizer
(1) Cartridge for extra patch storage

Item is in good condition. All buttons, sliders, and switch are fully functional. There is some flaking in the painted logos and labels, but the inlaid plastic overlay is in very good condition.

The keybed has good feel and Ensoniq's rarely have keys die since there's no physical contacts in this era of keybed (so this one's got no dead keys or calibration issues)."
