Melbourne's EMS Synthi 100 Given Engineering Heritage Award

You might remember the EMS Synthi 100 restored in Melbourne, posted here last year. The restoration was featured on ABC News Australia. According to a new article on ABC News that just went up a few hours ago:

"Today, Engineers Australia will award the synthesiser an Engineering Heritage Marker at a ceremony at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music's Southbank campus, recognising both the instrument's importance in music history and Mr Craythorn's work in restoring it.

Past recipients of the Marker include Brisbane's Story Bridge, the Parkes radio telescope, and the Sydney Tower.

The Synthi 100 was released in 1971 by London company EMS and retailed for £6,500 — the equivalent of more than $100,000 today.

Only 30 were produced, many of which are now inoperative, in storage, or on display as museum pieces." You can find the full article on ABC News here.

Thanks goes to MATRIXSYNTH reader Luke, for sending this one in!

For Those Left Behind

Published on Sep 7, 2016 John L Rice

"Sorry it has been so long since I've uploaded a video! Besides being in the middle of a big studio reorganization I've been dealing with some difficult family health issues. :-(

I managed to make a little space in my bedroom to set up one of my small modular synths and out of a little self-therapy patching this video emerged.

This is dedicated to all of you who have lost a loved one.

Technical Info:
The bell like tones are from a self generating patch on a eurorack modular synth. A picture of the patch can be seen on my Instagram page.

The patch used the following modules and gear:
Synthesis Technology - E102, E355, E560
Happy Nerding - HM VCO, MMM VCF
Mutable Instruments - Rings
Doepfer - A135-1, A-143-1
Circuit Abbey - Unify, Unify Expander
Ladik - Q-010
Erica Synths - Pico Trigger
Steady State Fate - S.P.O.
TC Electronics - Alter Ego v2 delay and Trinity 2 reverb pedals
Mackie - 402-VLZ3 mixer

The chords and solo parts were done with a Novation Ultranova keyboard. [The lead sound is from the lovely Novation Ultranova keyboard.]

All parts recorded to a Marantz PMD-661 and assembled in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13"

Century Sound Labs 2hp Module Demo - Osc, Env, Filt - Quick Look

Published on Sep 7, 2016 Century Sound Labs

"Special package deal on 2hp modules when you buy Osc, Filt, and Env:

Quit using blind panels and fill up that extra space in your rack with 2hp modules! These modules are packed with tone and utility. And at $150 a piece, how can you pass them up?

Also featured are Expert Sleepers Disting mk3s and the FH-1. The FH-1 is translating the MIDI from Ableton Live into 1v/oct control voltage and gate information, and the Distings are working together to create a CV signal for the FM input of the Osc module - a little vibrato!

New Eurorack Module Coming from Audio Damage

"chris.randallWell, well, well. What have we here? #eurorack #audiodamage #prototyping"

Note the slot on the bottom left. According to Chris: "SD card. To be clear, these are not samplers."

Update via @Chris_Randall:

"Those are actually prototype platform test modules; they're not anything in particular.

We're designing a new platform based around a bigger chip, and we made modules to test code on it."

5 Days of Circuit - Part 3

Published on Sep 7, 2016 Jeremy Leaird-Koch

All parts here.

"Let's play with the Novation Circuit!

The Circuit is a 2 synth, 4 drum groove box.
The Launch Control XL is a MIDI controller that has templates for working with some of the Circuit's parameters.

I recently got this combo and have been working on various sessions. Here I'll run through some of the stuff I've made, mixing and tweaking on the fly.

The Launch Control is in Mixer mode and gives me access to effect sends and levels. Super useful!

Hope you enjoy."

PEARL SYNCUSSION SY-1 With Drum Pads, Stands, Case & Original Box

via this auction

“A superb example of our favourite drum synth: for sale serviced and in perfect working order. Comes with the original carry case, drums for triggering it still in their original box, power supply and some of the original paperwork. The condition is excellent / near mint: there's barely a mark on it with only one ding to the casing visible from the front – please see the detailed photos in the listing to assess it for yourself: it doesn't look to have ever been near a drummer. The plastic case is in fair condition with various tears along the edges but still functional. The drums have seen some use but both skins are intact. Serviced by James Walker at Synth Repair Services, and also modified for separated outputs on a TRS jack.”

Qu Bit Chord - Space Patch

Published on Sep 7, 2016 PaulLawlerMusic

"First patch with the QU-Bit Chord Module.
Chord is being sequenced by the Koma Komplex Sequencer, and is then processed through Clouds & the ZDSP in Shimmer Mode, which gives the occasional rising harmonics effect.
The twinkly synth is the Verbos Harmonic Osc sequenced by the Kilpatrick K4815. I have also added some LFO'd noise for additional depth."

Patchblocks vs JP8000 - Supersaw battle on the "Giorgio" theme

Published on Sep 7, 2016 Matthieu

"Size doesn't matter...
I really love the theme of the Daft Punk track "Giorgio by Moroder". Roland 9/09 day is coming and I had an opportunity to have for a few days a Roland JP8000. This synth introduced the 'supersaw' wave, so I thought that it would be funny to run the same sequence in the JP8000 (via the Midiblock) and in the Patchblock (the left one) with a supersaw patch. The right Patchblock is just used to mix the volca and the other patchblock."
