New Moog Minimoog Model D Synthesizer Demo

Uploaded on Jun 13, 2016 SweetwaterSound

"Sweetwater's resident synth geek, Daniel Fisher, takes you on an exhaustive sonic run through of every parameter of Moog’s Minimoog Model D Synthesizer reissue. Those of you deeply interested in hearing its raw sounds (without any talking) can start at 3:05 for over 21 minutes of pure sonic demonstration.

During parts of the video, Daniel runs the minimoog Model D through a TC Electronic Flashback Delay set to a non-colorized ping-pong delay."

New Minimoog Model D Now In Full Production

via Moog Music

"Today we announce that after more than 30 years, production of the Minimoog Model D synthesizer has resumed. Introduced in 1970, the Minimoog Model D was the first portable synthesizer and served as the archetype for all electonic keyboards that followed. Conceived as a response to the large-scale modular synthesizers of the 1960’s, the Minimoog’s portability, accessibility, and expressiveness made it the go-to instrument for musicians looking to expand beyond the traditional sounds of the time.

[video just posted here with part 1]

Throughout history, the Minimoog Model D has been used by the most forward thinking artists to design the sound of the future. Bernie Worrell used the Minimoog to establish Parliament Funkadelic’s futuristic funk sound. Kraftwerk employed the Minimoog on the pioneering concept album Autobahn, sparking an entirely new genre. Gary Numan replaced his live band’s guitars with Minimoogs, creating the prototype for industrial music. The classic sound of the Minimoog Model D can be heard on Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and many more.

Each Minimoog Model D is lovingly handcrafted at our employee-owned factory in Asheville, NC. This legendary 3-oscillator monophonic instrument is securely housed in a hand-finished aluminum chassis and locally-sourced Appalachian hard-wood enclosure. To realize the unmistakable sound of the world’s first performance synthesizer, we preserve the component placement and through-hole design of the original analog circuit boards, employing military-spec precision resistors and custom-reissued transistors to complete the circuit.

Though no changes have been made to the original sound engine or audio signal path, the Minimoog Model D now includes a series of functional modifications to expand the instrument’s sonic capabilities beyond the factory specifications of a 1970’s production unit. These modifications include a premium Fatar keybed with velocity and after pressure available via top panel CV jacks, a dedicated analog LFO with triangle and square waveshapes, CV outputs for pitch, gate, velocity and after pressure, basic MIDI integration, and a mixer overload modification, which when engaged, allows the Minimoog Model D to conjure thicker and far more overdriven sounds than before.

The Minimoog Model D is now available for order through authorized Moog dealers world-wide.

*NOTE: Due to the complexity of the build process coupled with the demand for other Moog instruments, we are only able to produce a small number of Minimoog Model D units per month."

Minisizer-MicroBrute-Party :D (w/ Volca Beats & MicroGranny 2.4) #TTNM

Published on Jul 19, 2016 The Tuesday Night Machines

"Lured the Arturia MicroBrute out of its hiding place to patch it with the Anyware Instruments Minisizer :D

The Volca Beats clocks the MicroBrute, which sequences itself and the Minisizer. Some of the Minisizer's audio is fed into the MicroBrute as well, but other than that, the instruments are sent into a mixer separately. The MicroGranny 2 is played manually.

Audio gear used:
- Anyware Instruments Minisizer (mini analog modular synth)
- Arturia MicroBrute (analog monosynth with sequencer)
- Bastl Instruments MicroGranny 2.4 (granular sampler)
- Korg Volca Beats (drum machine)"

"Follow the life of the Minimoog Synthesizer from its inception through its prolific contributions to poplular music throughout the last 4 decades.

In this first installment documenting the journey of the Minimoog synth through the 1970's, we explore the musicians and the people that were instrumental in bringing the instrument to prominence. We also sit with one of Moog Music's earliest engineers, Bill Hemsath, who recalls the process of the Minimoog's birth and sheds some light on what sets the Moog synthesizer apart from other analog synths.

Tangerine Dream- White Eagle JD-Xi Demo

Published on Jul 19, 2016 Sequentonal

"I was asked to play something using only the JD-Xi.

So here it is, ALL SOUNDS are coming directly from the Roland, no other Instruments are used.
I do use a midi controller to play synth 1 and 3 and the Beat Step Pro plays part of Synth 2 and some of the drums.
On the JD-Xi Keyboard I trigger the Arpeggiator, which cannot be played via Midi.

Synth 2 has multiple sounds:
The 'Hollow Bass' with 0 Sustain for the Arp and 'SynString' Pads with lots of Decay and Sustain
The melody lead is on Synth 1 using 2 Midi Clav sounds (one pitched down one octave ) and the D50 Stack sound."

BEHRINGER Synth Vol 3 - DCO Polyphony

Published on Jul 19, 2016 Music Group

"New Behringer Analogue Polyphonic Synth"

At least 4 voices based on the voice LEDs. The sound in this one reminds me of a Juno-106 meets a Korg MS2000. Previous videos exposed other characters of the synth. It's hard to tell from short audio snippets, but if the synth is capable of completely different characters that is a good thing. Surprisingly, not all synths can. Listen for yourself. You can find all parts here.

Mindspace - Black Carpet (Oliver Lieb)"


via this auction

"Was made in USSR in 1985 at Luberetskiy Military Radioplant "Rodina" (Motherland) near Moscow.
ALISA synthesizers were made especially for experimental electronic music, creating of sound effects in soviet cinema and scientific acoustic researches.
This unique instrument has warm, aggressive and absolutely original analog sound!

The synthesizer has 1 OSC with 4 wave forms, ADSR , filter, various modulations, vibrato and portamento effects.

tune; octave +1/+2; portamento; wave forms: triangle, saw, square, odd harmonics; frequency modulation (for all 4 waveforms);
impulse-width modulation (for square wave form) with impulse width and depth controls;
harmonics (for odd harmonics wave form). You can use individual OSC waveforms (triangle, saw, square, odd harmonics) or mix them together to get unique sounds!

on/off modulation switch, two waveforms (triangle, square), modulation rate, modulation rate coarse switch - 1Hz/10Hz.

cutoff, resonance, vibrato (filter modulation), ADSR, switch between filter control- keyboard or contour OSC (ADSR).
The synths filter due to it`s original architecture can be used as additional oscillator when filter`s
resonance knob in self-oscillaltion position and it sounds really weird and interesting!

Power - 220Volts

The unit is professionally serviced, tested & perfect working condition with signs of use. All capacitors replaced. 1/4 TRS "Jack" installed."

"I have here a Roland SH3 (not 3a) that i have have had for a number of years after i inherited it from a family member upon passing away. There seems to be very contrasting rumours about how rare the SH3's actually are (moog lawsuit etc...) compared to the SH3a's, and after consulting many different people in the know, i'm still unsure, so it's listed here and will go for whatever it goes for."
