Wine Glass Sample - Fairlight CMI III

Published on Aug 13, 2016 100 Things I Do

"The Fairlight CMI III. 16 Bits, 16 Voice Sampler / FFT Synthesis workstation. This actual machine was originally owned by Fairlight Instruments and used for internal development purposes. You can see on the front of the unit some original test swatch colours used for screen printing. Also unlike any other Fairlight I have seen it has grounding springs added to the rear of the card bay door.

For a moment in time Australia ruled the world with the Fairlight CMI , only just over 250 ever made and from my understanding most of these being CMI II and IIx machines. The CMI was almost as expensive as a house and only owned by the top studios or a few lucky major music artists of the time (The Pet Shop Boys, Art Of Noise, Peter Gabriel, Mike Oldfield , Kate Bush etc..). The CMI III is the last machine with sampling capabilities released before they redesigned the whole system as the MFX and moved to multitrack Audio and post production tools.

The clip is quite short this week due to it being a last minute creation. The clip I was going to release was tagged by some Internet copyright trolls looking to embed advertising. Hopefully this will be resolved soon."

The Reface DX Legacy Project

This one sent in via O L. The Reface DX Legacy Project is a website dedicated to porting vintage 4-Op synth patches to the new Yamaha Reface DX. According to the site, "the Reface DX is NOT compatible with 4-operator FM synths from the past like the TX81Z, DX100, or DX9" so they did the work for you.

You'll find sysex dumps for the following:

Yamaha DX100, DX21, DX11, TX81Z, YS200, DS55, V50, FB-01, DX9, SFG-01, SFG-05.

Jen String Machine SM2007

via this auction

"Jen String Machine SM2007.
This has had a full recent service.
Presets include Strings/Organ/solo
& Ensemble. Sliders include attack decay release and there is an auto sustain switch.
All keys sound apart from middle C#.
All sliders are smooth and functioning.
There are lots of marks/knocks to wood underneath and this synth has been well used. But it is an old classic bit of vintage kit and sounds great!
It dates from circa 1976 and is fairly light and compact as it was designed to sit on top of a piano or organ.
The string sound is very unique and expressive especially with the ensemble switch activated. Similar to solina string ensemble and the vox string thing. Also has organ and solo mode.
Rich analogue string sound is ideal for soundtracks/prog/post punk. Cardiacs used one on early recordings."

Live Acid Electronica - "Isolation"- TR8, TB3, System 1, MX-1 Volca Bass/Keys, Ableton Live/Push

Published on Aug 13, 2016 Rezzonator

"Another live performance of a track taken from my forthcoming album and as featured recently on BBC Introducing. This was created with the Roland TR8, TB3 and System 1 and Korg Volca Keys and Bass. All the sound are coming from those hardware instruments and mixed in Ableton Live with a few added fx sounds and percussion sequence from Arsenal and Trigger Finger Pro.

Most of the tracks are sequenced within Ableton and controlled using Push and the Roland MX-1. This gives me a great mix of hardware and software and allows me to take the track in different direction and extend or shorten it when performing it live."

OB6 Day 1 - Filter Sweeps, X-Mod, VCO2/LFO mode; Live Jam with the DSI and Tom Oberheim beauty

Published on Aug 13, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"I got my OB6 yesterday. I've never had an analog synth of this caliber and quite frankly I now feel like I've been missing out my whole life. I chose the OB6 over the Prophet 6 mainly because of the filter. The OB6's variable state filter and oscillators allow for some incredible modulation. Here is what is going on :

This video is 100% OB6 doing synth stuff, with a backing drum loop from the Yamaha Montage. I recorded into Ableton with a little compression and some basic EQ. There are no other FX used at all until I get to the part where I add some distortion from the OB6 FX generator. The stereo spread you hear is not chorus. It is the Pan Spread and Unison Detuning parameters of the synth acting in conjunction to give a huge stereo image. It's just the oscillators!

Also, an incredible thing to me is that this was all done with ONE OSCILLATOR with some Sub Octave. VCO 1 is doing all the sound, while VCO 2 is in LFO Mode. I use that in the X-Mod section to modulate the Filter Freq and Filter Mode settings. The result is an incredibly huge audio experience where each of VCO2's 6 voices is independently modulating each of VCO1's 6 voices which are in Unison. In other words, HUGE HUGE SOUND!!! This is seriously blowing me away and it's only after about 1 hour with the machine. I can't wait to dig into it to see what it can do."

PAiA 8700 keyboard synthesizer controller

via this auction

Check out the traces running from each touch pad.

via the listing: "This vintage PAiA 8700 keyboard synthesizer controller is in good shape and appears to be working properly. The unit turns on, the touch pad is responsive and changes values on the small LED display. The unit makes a short 'buzz' sound when a key is pressed on the number pad, and 'buzzing' sounds when a 'program' is ran (the display cycles through settings). I'm not familiar with these units so I can't do any more testing beyond that, especially since I don't own any synthesizer modules. Like I said, it appears to me that it is working fine, however I will have to sell it "as-is for parts" because I can't say with 100% certainty that it is."
