Synthrotek Cheeks of STEEL

Published on Sep 21, 2016 synthrotek

"Cheeks of STEEL are made from heavy-duty 12 gauge powder-coated steel. They can be oriented two ways, and they are super rigid either way - no rear support bracket needed.

We designed these cheeks with our Skiff Boats in mind. If you already have our Skiff Boats, you can remove the wood cheek ends and mount them into the steel cheeks. The Cheeks of Steel use a different kind of rail-mounting screw than the Skiff Boats, so we include pan head screws whether you purchase rails or not.

Though originally designed for use with our Skiff Boats, Cheeks of STEEL with rails have a great industrial look by themselves."

DreamsOfWires - AJH Synth Mini Mod system

Published on Sep 21, 2016 DreamsOfWires

"Comprising 1x glide/noise, 3x VCO, 1x ladder filter, 1x dual contour generator, and 1x VCA. I'm currently borrowing this beautiful sounding (and looking) instrument, so expect more videos of it to follow. For more information about it visit here:
I've have a soft spot for the sound of the Minimoog for a long time, but I couldn't afford or justify the cost of an original, bearing in mind also the lack of flexibility, connectivity and risk of expensive repairs. So, understandably, I re-wrote my letter to Santa when I heard about the Mini Mod. It has the sound of the original Minimoog with the flexibility of a modular. Perfect.
All sounds are from the Mini Mod with a little delay and reverb. After I'd recorded the sequences (as seen in the video) I overdubbed a bass drone on another audio track and some additional sounds at the end. Beyond that I don't want to explain it in anymore detail, it just is what it is - I hope my videos are enjoyable or just provide some inspiration, but they're not intended as tutorial videos. I'm not knowledgeable enough for that.
Video locations are Amble and Warkworth Castle, Northumberland, UK."

Some details via Elektron where you'll find an interactive online demo:

Audio enhancer. Audio destroyer
Add sparkly brilliance, or grimy roughness, to any sound source. Samplers, drum machines, synths, the master bus, you name it. Analog Heat is a fiery furnace destined to make your music glow.

Sound better
Take a sound, any sound. Send it through the Analog Heat, try out the eight different stereo analog distortion circuits, add stereo analog filtering and EQ, and hear beautiful things unfold. New life for your existing gear.

Plugin control
Overbridge essentially allows your Analog Heat to be used as a VST/AU effect plugin. Connect the Analog Heat to your computer and conveniently smooth out the edges of all digital sounds. Incredibly useful for bringing your mixes to life.

Sound card operation
One of the most prominent Analog Heat features: it can function as a 2 in/2 out sound card, even while processing DAW audio. Perfect for the traveling musician. Create as you go and make stellar, high quality recordings wherever you may roam."

And of course, check out the pics to the left for features. Note the filter section.

Metroid - Title Theme (Analog Synth remake)

Published on Sep 21, 2016 Luminist

"I wanted to find out what the original NES Metroid soundtrack would be like if it was remade with REAL synths, 80s style.

All sounds were generated with a Korg MS20 Mini, then processed with some juicy studio effects to make things more atmospheric.

Original composition by Hirokazu Tanaka - any credit goes to him for writing such an immersive soundtrack in the first place!!

ARP ODYSSEY Model 2800 MKI Black Original SN 283048

via this auction

"Includes 2 original Arp Odyssey patch sheets and a copy of the manual

CONDITION: Excellent condition,
This unit has had the keyboard bushings replaced and all the sliders cleaned and lubed for proper drag and functioning. One slider feels rough and either needs to be re-cleaned or replaced, it doesn’t slide smoothly but functions correctly. It has never bothered me enough to replace it. The Arp has some scuffs and scrapes common with old synths and a small dent in the top middle of the unit visible in the pictures. It is missing one colored slider cap and I believe the side screws are not original. Other than what I’ve mentioned I don’t know of anything wrong with the unit."

Future Retro Orb MIDI Step Sequencer

via this auction

"Superb for TB303 style acid sequencing, and with the addition of swing to the 303's accent and glide it's arguably superior to the X0X sequencers it's based on.

The Orb is an easy to use, single track, step-based digital sequencer, ideal for controlling our XS semi-modular synthesizer as well as other analog CV/Gate or MIDI synthesizers. The Orb is also a perfect solution for controlling 303 clones which often lack the essential sequencer.

Based on our highly successful Revolution concept, the Orb provides an intuitive interface that we feel most accurately represents the principles of time and music. From ancient sundials to modern day analog clocks, time has been represented as the circle, a cycle which never ends. For time itself is nothing more than our perception of the revolution of planets as they journey through their celestial orbit. It is this motion that we call time that can be measured, divided, and arranged to provide the foundation of music. This circular cyclic theme can furthermore be found throughout music in everything from song structure and repeating rhythms to the fundamentals of sound itself, being the sine wave. With this understanding we must conclude that music is cyclic and should so be represented in its natural form.

Continuing our tradition of hand building quality products, this sleek compact unit is housed in a rugged aluminum chassis with a high contrast white on gun metal grey finish for superior viewing of controls in dark environments, and bright blue LEDs all around. New spherical switches allow quick selection of multiple steps by sweeping through the surface of step keys.

Let's start with the sequencer....
