Kickin' It - Dub/Reggae - Korg Minilogue-TR8-SImmons SDS8-Roland JU06-JP08-JX03-DSI Mopho SE

Published on Jun 13, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"This is not my genre and who knows if I even named it right. I love listening but making it is a whole different thing. But it was a fun jam. The most 'Dub' thing about this is the Korg Minilogue organ running through the Roland RE-301 dub machine, er, Space Chorus. But the JU-06 lays down a solid bass line sequenced by the Ensoniq EPS 16+, while the TR8 layered with the Simmons SDS8 for some extra OOMPH on that kick and snare provide the rhythm. The JX-03 was set on the 'voice' preset and the JP-08 is a custom patch (because those are better)."

Yamaha CS80 played & Minimoog sequenced...

Published on Jun 13, 2016 noddyspuncture

"So here's a new one - it's a method I found of synchronising the CS80's LFO to my Q960 sequencer. The sequencer here is playing the Minimoog but I am also using the trigger pulses from the sequencer to modulate some CS80 parameters I can select on the fly..! This is one trick I'll be using again I think - I might even make it my own... I've not seen anyone doing this at all yet, anywhere."

Also a bit of ring mod throughout.

Formanta EMS-01 Rarest Analog Soviet Synthesizer Organ

via this auction

"In general, synth is working. However there are a few problems which needs attention. Firstly, modulation block on a synthesizer module is not working. 1st generator is not tuned. Some of sliders and knobs are a bit noisy. Organ volume knob is very noisy. Also there are 2 keys on the organ, which are not responding. (2 last, higher keys). Since all these issues are taking a place, synth is up for sale with really good,reasonable discount of the regular price."

This is a unedited and live video. The two main modules used are the 1004T (toggle switch) VCO and a 1047 filter.
The 1004 oscillator is the most versatile in the series (1004T, 1004R, 1004p) R & P stand for Rocker & Pot.
The 1004T has inverted waveforms & a built in mixer."

A bassline with the Korg MS-20m by Jordan Passmore

Published on Jun 13, 2016 Jordan Passmore

"In this demo of the Korg MS-20m I am highlighting some of the special features of the MS-20m, like PWM and oscillator sync. The MS-20m is sequenced via my Roland SH-101 and the drum machine that can be heard through-out is the TR-606. The two instruments were mixed on an Ace Tone MP-40 and recorded with my Roland Super UA audio interface."

Studio Logic Releases Sledge Black Edition

via Studio Logic

Production is running and shipping next week.

"The exclusive dark look includes a black case, a semi-weighted keyboard with reverse black and grey keys and an even more professional touch feeling. New modulation features and sounds, with a mix of pure synthesis and sampling, push Sledge further than ever before.

New color, best touch.
The reverse color keyboard perfectly matches the black look and thanks to semi-weighted keys and new balanced springs, gives an unbeatable feeling, for a more satisfying musical experience.

Double power, bigger sound.
The audio output level is enhanced, for a stronger, cleaner and fatter sound. The LFO2 is now synchronized, allowing to keep the same modulation phase on all notes."

WERSI EX10R Synthesizer Expander with 8-bit drums 1985 | HD DEMO | SAMPLE PACK

Published on Jun 13, 2016 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2016 by AnalogAudio1

Wersi EX10R is a programmable synthesizer module / accompaniment from Germany.

It has digital and analog circuits. It has digital waveforms and sampled waveforms. Resonant VCF (lowpass filter). The modulation effects are fully analog: chorus and ensemble. It has great 8-bit drum samples! It also produces great string ensemble strings, thanks to its "ensemble" effect. Great organs (hey, it's a Wersi!) It also has a programmable accompaniment section. MIDI. Little fluorescent display. The programming is quite complicated.



Do you like the crispy, analog drums of the Wersi EX10R? You can buy them as 'SAMPLE PACK' for 4,99 Euros. All drum sounds of the machine are included (16 bit / 44,1 kHz wav samples).

Recording was made in high quality using RME studio equipment. All original pure sound directly from the machine's output, without any treatments.

After payment through PayPal you will get the sample pack via email.

If you want to buy the sample pack, send a message to (and check your spam folder, I answer quickly)."

Update via swissdoc in the comments:

"The Wersi EX10 is the rack version of their Omega DX10 organ. They use the DMS tone generation, which is featured in devices like Condor DX100, Alpha DX300/350, Beta DX400, Gamma DX500S, Delta DX500T, Prisma DX5, Omega DX10, Stage Performer MK1, EX10R and EX20.

Only the Stage Performer MK1 and the rack version of it, the EX20 are programmable.

The EX10R can not be programmed, as in creation of a sound from scratch, it can be used to layer presets and to modify filter settings (switched cap filter or SSM 2044 in later models) or settings of the Wersivoice String-Ensemble. The drum part allows for user pattern creation.

DMS stands for Digital Multi-Sound and is in fact based on a Z8 CPU driven voice card for 2 voices, which is based on fading between additive created waveshapes. There is no sampling involved, even so the sounds are pretty "realistic".

Some presets utilize a special programming of the voicecards, one for instance cycles through the vovels A-E-I-O-U per keypress, another one play a little arpeggio. Those cannot be programmed on the Performer MK1 or the EX20, only a special computer system at Wersi could do this.

The EX10R could be equipped with reverb (DH10, DH11 or DH100) all similar, using different bit depths, sample rate and number of algorithms. Sound quality of the DH10 is quite low-fi and calculation is based on 6809 processor.

The Spectra from the CD Series later had an enhaced version of the DMS system, where much more harmonics have been available.

Wersi later developed advanced concepts for digital pianos by using transputers and data compression, called WERSI-Digitalpiano CT 1 or CG 1 based on D-Art-Klangerzeugungs-System mit ASIC-Transputer-DSP Technologie."

Reznik Dreams at the 1AC

Published on Jun 13, 2016 davidryle

"A wandering dreamlike idea. Using the Flame Chord Machine, Piston Honda, Clouds, Mysteron and Segwencer IV (two of them) to follow the Pressure Points sequence and radio noise which is stepped from a Q960 sequencer. Lots of random treatments with two Turing Machines.

The voltage controlled radio module, a noise module, a MOTM 440, a Serge 1973 filter, a CGS Real Ring Modulator, an Ian Fritz DDVCO all worked with feedback loops through an Encore Frequency Shifter to create the metallic noise.
The Segwencer was picking apart the four part chords in random fashion from a Turing Machine and the arpeggiator portion of the Chord Machine drove a suite of MosLab 901 vco's to add counterpoint to the Piston Honda sequence. The Mysteron and a Q106 vco were filtered through a STG Soundlabs Post Lawsuit LPF for the bass line.
A little homage to a favorite 'machinist' movie."

Totally 80s Jam - Mopho SE - JU-06 - JX-03 - JP-08 - Minilogue - Simmons SDS8 - Roland MKS7

Published on Jun 12, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"I swear this Mopho SE bass will split your face open,.....I did the cover of Living On Video and I loved how the Mopho SE bass sounded so much that I wanted to just do an original jam. Trans-X is better than this....but this was still pretty fun. All synth is played live on this one but the Mopho SE bass which is being sequenced by the Ensoniq EPS16+ (for the most part...I do play it live briefly in the middle). The Beatstep Pro acts as the master clock for the Ensoniq. The Simmons SDS8 really fattens up the TR707 drums. And that Mopho Bass...."
