Radikal Technologies RT-451 vs. Spectralis II Groove

Published on Jun 19, 2016 Jörg Schaaf

"I fed a multitrack recording of a Spectralis II groove into a subgroup of my mixing desk. The signal went straight into an old Behringer Composer and from there into the RT-451 dual multimode filter. The output of the filter went back into a stereo channel of my desk and from there via USB into the computer. You can listen to the different filter types of the RT-451."

The SOMA Laboratory LYRA-8 Organismic Synthesizer

Published on Jun 19, 2016 Vlad Kreymer

"Unique analog organismic synthesither for soundscapes, FXs, pads, complex textures. The term "Organismic” means that all its modules are intertwined by many nonlinear connections and work in an entangled state, modifying each other, much like organs and systems in live beings. That allows for getting complex, diverse, fluid textures from a relatively simple construction.

Created by SOMA laboratory"

Update via Vlad Kreimer in the comments: "There will be CV IN for voices with choosing of destination and amount and CV IN for delay time modulation . Also will apear EXTERNAL AUDIO IN that turns LYRA to cool FX processor. Any digital ins not planed yet, cause it kill LYRA specific sound that has absolutely analog circuit. For using digital control i need rearrange main parts of circuit. May be it will becomes later at the next models."

Novation Bass Station II Step Sequencer

Published on Jun 19, 2016 ProckGnosis

"Jump to 2:05 to skip the intro. Just an overview of how the Bass Station II step sequencer works and how to program in some simple sequences. (click 'show more' to see the rest)

From the manual:
'Up to four separate sequences, each containing up to 32 notes (or a combination of notes and rests) can be recorded. These sequences are stored in Bass Station II and are retained when the synth is switched off. In addition, the currently selected sequence can also be stored as part of a patch.'

Not discussed in the video:
- Editing a sequence after it is programmed (doesn't look like you can do it, other than re-entering the whole sequence)
- Changing the sequence by selecting a different 'Rhythm Pattern'
- Using the "Latch" button, which fortunately does work like a latch button is supposed to, functioning for both the arpeggiator and the step sequencer

I am VERY impressed with this synth. It sounds great, and has some very cool tricks up its sleeve for such a low price. As much as I like the Arturia Minibrute, I would say this have a slight edge over the Minibrute. Why? Mostly because of the second oscillator (offering detuned beating), being able to save patches, and I slightly prefer this filter."

GeoSynths Ep7 - EHX Tortion JFET Overdrive on Synthesizers

Published on Jun 19, 2016 GEOSynths

"Overdrive from EHX...The Electro Harmonix EHX Tortion JFET Overdrive Pedal. The word 'Warm' is overused and overstated, but this thing is great on Synths. It's not over the top, but it can really break up a sound, while still being Musical. I don't usually go in for Overdrive and Distortion, but have changed my just over £100 it's not cheap, but works well with Synths.

This time I bring out my Novation Bass Station 2, which is one of the best Synths I've ever bought in my 28 Years of dabbling with them...such a flexible Mono, which thankfully, sounds good with Overdrive :)

Polymoog 203a Keyboard Synthesizer with original 285 Dual Pedal Controller SN 3040

via this auction

"Polymoog 203a model with 285 controller pedals and legs completely rebuilt by New England Analog in March 2013. Serial number 3040.The rebuild cost $4500 over and above the $2500 I paid for the synth. You can search New England Analog's website and go to service and photo gallery to see the 80 photos illustrating the rebuild. NEA also installed a custom formant filter circuit ( see photo of board with green connecting wires, you can also see the SMPS in gold )built into the organ patch to simulate the Vox Humana patch. NEA also has a YouTube demo of this you can search. Not perfect but if you set the saw and square wave LFOs at different rates using a narrow pulse wave at 2-15% duty cycle and run through a flanger, you can get it to 90% of the Vox Humana patch sound found on the 280 model.

The NEA rebuild includes the following:
Power supply replaced by SMPS which greatly improved the stability. Switched Mode power supplies incorporate a switching regulator to convert electrical power more efficiently than the original Polymoog PSUs. The SMPS generates almost no heat which is a godsend to the delicate internal circuitry in the Polymoog.
Replaced all switch indicators to blue LEDs.
Rebuilt Pratt Reed keyboard with new bushings and lubrication. Polished busbars.
Repaired and calibrated all velocity sensors.
Repaired faulty VCF envelope generator.
Repaired faulty capacitances in middle D modulator, changed several polycom chips to temper voices between notes
Replaced all polarized capacitors
Replaced all analog opamps, analog switches, multiplexers, and all CA 3080 OTA chips.
Repaired faulty Pass Mode switch on front panel.
Lubricated 285 controller pedals( the pedals alone have sold for upwards of $500
The modifications made by NEA with this rebuild added quite a lot of stability to the unit . A few caveats however- if you have never owned a Polymoog, each key has a Polycom card which snaps into a holder.They can vibrate loose during shipping or transport so the new owner must feel comfortable reseating these cards if any were to shift. All you need is a screwdriver to take off the cover and unscrew a PCB , pull off a few ribbon or pin connectors and reseat a card.(see last photo). I've had this Polymoog for three years, moved it four times and only once had to reseat a card. You will be able to tell if a card has shifted. A Polycom card that is loose will typically sound brighter or louder as though the filter is wide open or sound duller like the filter is closed on all patches. You also need to be selective about where you will use the Polymoog. It should be in a room that does not have any ground loop issues and you need to keep your iPad and mobile phone or any other wireless device at least 5 feet away. The Polymoog is susceptible to electromagnetic RF interference and there are some good stories on the Internet about musicians on stage hearing broadcasts coming out of their Moogs during concerts. If you have ground loop issues or a lot of RF interference , you have the option of using the balanced mix output jack which has special shielding to prevent interference. You also need to set the pitch wheel on the pedals at no more than 60% of max when you use it. Yet another poor Moog design that if you use the pitch wheel on the back of the pedals at max wheel setting, the pitch will change so drastically that the tuner on the front Polymoog control panel can't bring it back completely in tune. It can be off as much as a semitone which is the case with this Polymoog."

Hohner String Performer

via this auction

"Lots of people say "rare" in their title, but I can guarantee not more one person reading this has seen one of these (in America.) This is a ridiculously well-kept and all original string synthesizer of German engineering and build quality. I just paid hundreds of dollars cleaning the guts and restoring function to every solder joint and button push and slider. The only thing that cannot be replaced is the slider knob for the Cello setting in the Upper section, just can't find one that isn't attached to a working unit. Also the power supply is a generic computer p/s but with correct voltage and current. This is marked for 18V but the internet says it runs better/quieter at closer to 20V. I'll include the whole array of tips and variable voltage controller.
Everything simply works. It sounds amazing. Throw your plug-ins away, they can't touch the real thing. And hit the Planet setting in the solo section? Joe Meek would weep Telstar to rust at the sound of this thing. Not the mention it comes with its original stand.

Yes, there's patina and marking from moving it around. It's covered in Tolex so imagine seeing a 70's Fender amp without any marking on it - pretty unlikely."

The Stranglers' Roland JD800 Digital Synthesizer

via this auction

"Classic vintage digital synth used by Dave Greenfield for many live shows between approx 1998 - 2006.

This was Dave's backup JD800 which has seen many miles of road and gigs. Being his 'number 2' it is in surprisingly good cosmetic condition due to the fact that although it traveled to every show it rarely came out of the flight case. It was, however, used many times by Dave and as you can see by the pics still contains all his programmed patches for various songs for the live set with that keyboard rig.

Over time, however, it has now developed some faults:
It has 6x dead/sticky keys which is a common symptom of Roland synths of that era.
One of the edit faders (TVA Envelope Release Time 4) has now become temperamental when trying to select a value.
A couple of the buttons need a harder press than they used to but still do work.

All these faults are mechanical and can be repaired if someone is willing to put the effort in but it does still function perfectly over MIDI."

Space Machine (Korg Minilogue, Korg Volca series+ effects)

Published on Jun 19, 2016 Metatron's Cube

"The low beating sound of the machines "heart" echoes through the hallways as it marches tword an unknown task. Always working, analyzing what should take priority over other tasks, scheduling them all in order. Data, information logs, past backed up memories, stochastic analysis, deep subroutines, all giving the appearance of a life with purpose, living forever as a slave to the very vessel that makes it's possible to exist in the first place. Always exploring, recording and looking for signs of something else, someone else. The expanse of space seems infinite, so full and also empty.

Dreadbox EREBUS vs Strymon BlueSky - Ethereal jam session

Published on Jun 19, 2016 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

I had a little bit of a mishap the other day... i ordered a mooer shimverb on ebay, and it got lost in transit ... being really really bummed out about this i went to my local store to check out some other pedals, and to my surprise they had the entire strymon lineup in stock. I already have the timeline.. and have been gunning for the big sky for ever since i got it, still wanted to give this one a try in the store and fell immediately in love with the lush sound.

Also, a new synth in my setup is the Dreadbox erebus.. so why not hook them up and go full tilt ethereal ambient jam ? :)

so its ONLY, the erebus, passing through the jomox (which is in bypass mode).. stereo signal out from the strymon onto 2 track.. the strymon is set to reverb mode Room / Modulation, with no pre-delay starting off at decay 3 o'clock, mix on 12.30 high damp on full and low damp on 12.

At the end i crank up the decay to almost full tilt...

I hope you like it... cheers !"
