QUASIMIDI SIRIUS Vintage Digital Synth synthesizer

via this auction

"The LCD screen was replaced for a modern blue color equivalent. I also upgraded the 12v DC wall adapter to a hi spec 12v 6A version. The keyboard itself does not use more than 1A current. I just like to provide more than enough power to my stuff.

All electronics on this synth work. There are no faults for use."

Octave the Cat Analog Synthesizer REV1

via this auction

"This version has both discrete VCO's (CA3046 based) and a discrete filter (CA3080 based. Similar to a Roland IR3109 filter). Not like the SMR/SMRII which used Curtis chips for the VCO's and filter.

The side panels are in fairly good shape with the exception of a couple drill holes on the sides. I'm assuming someone mounted a guitar strap to it at one point."

Hardware synth jam by Mike Longo and Afrodjmac, Korg and Elektron synth and drum machine instruments

Published on Aug 5, 2016 Expanding Sound

"Our good friend Afrodjmac, ( came by for a jam, and brought over his Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine. He was looking to put it to the test in a live application. Expanding Sound contibutor Mike Longo ( had been wanting to try his Korg SQ1 Sequencer with some of his new Korg gear, and the rest is, as they say, history. The jam builds and really starts to move once it gets going.

The instruments featured in this jam are
Korg Monotribe (synced using Korgs iOS app SyncKontrol)
Volca FM
Volca Keys
Volca Bass
MS20 Mini (with SQ1 Sequencer)
Elektron Analog Rytm Drum machine.

We recorded everything separately into Ableton Live. It was a lot of fun to jam this way, so make sure to hang with the video as it consistently builds! We wanted to feature each instrument for a moment so you could tell the individual instrument's introduction.
