Custom Wavetable - AudioTerm & Waldorf Blofeld

Synthesizer Patel

"Another wave table experiment. This time I take a voice sample and manipulate it into a wavetable. I have included annotations in the video so if you have not had much exposure to wavetables so you can understand whats going on. So I guess its half education , half fun , half experiment and half a tribute to the man that loved Synthesizers so much he changed his name to Synthesizer Patel! Oh wait... thats too many half's :D"

Pucktronix - The Oracle Eurorack Module Introduction

Published on Jul 30, 2016 Greg Surges

"The Oracle is a control voltage (CV) sequencer in the Eurorack format. The module is based on a machine learning algorithm that can detect repeated patterns in a sequence. The device learns a control sequence (think a melody) and produces variations on that initial sequence in a musically meaningful way (think theme and variations).

The algorithm builds a model of the syntax of the sequence that then allows for the generation of new, closely related sequences. These new sequences follow the logic and structure of the original sequence, but with different orderings.

Magpie Modular MI Elements Eurorack Module

via this auction

"This listing is for one Magpie Modular build of a Mutable Instruments Elements Eurorack synthesizer module in excellent cosmetic and functional condition. Item will ship with power cable, and I will include M3 (i.e. Doepfer) mounting screws upon request. As with any Eurorack module, the buyer will need to supply a case to mount it in and a Eurorack standard power supply to power it.

Not much to say about this one, it has a beautiful faceplate, is well built, works perfectly and sounds great.

It's a lot more noticeable on fast envelopes, with longer settings it's not really an issue but with blippier settings you sometimes get the double trigger. It's got CV/gate ins too, and usually I'm sequencing externally for these types of sounds. It doesn't double trigger over CV/gate."

Bugrand CTL1 RARE Frac Format Minijack Touch Panel Module

via this auction

"This is a very rare, discontinued and cool unit, basically akin to a Make Noise Pressure Points and Brains rolled together in one module. I find the pressure response to be far superior to the Pressure Points."

Vintage Oberheim TVS-1 Two Voice Synthesizer

via this auction

"A classic with Big Fat analog sounds. If you’ve been thinking about buying one of these instruments this is GREAT opportunity to purchase a very valuable piece at a reduced price.

Things to know:
The unit is FULLY functional but there are a few MINOR issues. Electronically all modules work as intended. The keyboard is in great shape but the upper octave Bf key is slightly sticky and has a different feel. For some reason the second octave C key is about a 1/16" above the others. All keys release quickly but I think the key release is a bit loud....may be normal for this keyboard but I've read that the rubber dampening bushing harden with age. If so new ones are available. The sequencer clock slide switch center detent is not as positive as new but DOES work. As with any vintage piece the pots are smooth but could use a shot of cleaner/lube to restore pristine feel. Overall the Tolex is great with a few SMALL tears and scuffs.

Due to age this item is sold in as is condition and returns are not accepted BUT the unit is accurately described. If you have any question please feel to contact me before bidding.

Includes TVS-1, power cord, abridged user guide and all schematics (see photos)."

Note this is not an analog modeling synth like the AN1x but is rather has sample based oscillators.

"The second generation of the popular CS1x synthesizer is back in a bold and bright new Analog Modeling synth - the CS2x. Many new improvements and enhancements have been made. Polyphony has doubled to 64 voices and there's 16MB of sampled waveforms! There are 64 resonant 24dB filters! The Arpeggiator now holds 40 patterns for animating your sounds. All functions are MIDI capable, even the Arpeggiator can transmit its pattern data to other synths or sequencers! There is even a direct TO-HOST connector for direct hook-up to your computer..."


via this auction

"The AN1x is a powerful retro-analog synth with a really cool new feature that lets you record real-time editing and filtering and be able to store it as part of the sound! A major contender in the new wave of analog-digital synths using DSP modeling of analog waveforms to recreate the coveted sounds of analog synths with modern digital specifications. It offers truly traditional yet modern methods of analog synthesizing, 10 notes of polyphony, 8 knobs for tweaking, and an arpeggiator with dozens of inspiring patterns!"

80's Sequential Multi-Trak SN 00665

via this auction

"This keyboard was inherited from a family member who kept this synth in BEAUTIFUL condition. There is hardly a scratch/scuff on the keyboard. Very light use with minimal signs of wear. *Please note* I am not a keyboard player by any means but I did turn it on and experienced a slight "wooshing" sound. Upon further research, I found out that ALL Multi-Trak keyboards suffered from a bad battery from the factory. BUT there are a few synth shops I called that said it would be no problem to replace the battery."

There is a relatively easy fix to prevent the battery from draining in the future as well.

"Korg vocoder VC-10 in near mint condition. This one has spend 35 years sitting in my smoke free home studio. Never gigged , used probably no more than 10 hours.

Korg MS-10 SN 131881

via this auction

"Korg MS10 mono synth in great condition.

I bought this synth refurbished about a month when it had 'its had all the signal path electrolytic capacitors replaced, a new 230v transformer (was originally 100V Japanese spec), and a couple of new potentiometers for the front panel controls.'

Cosmetically the synthesiser is in great clean condition just a few minor scuffs."
