Roland MC-505 Demo Track by Greynote Music

Published on Oct 5, 2016 Greynote Music | Royalty Free Music

"This track is produced using a Roland MC-505 Groovebox.


First, this track is sequenced completely on the MC-505 using custom programmed synth patches. That's 7 sequenced synth tracks in total plus one drum track.

Then, the sequenced tracks where recorded one by one in Logic Pro X.

Finally, the resulting track recordings have been (re)arranged and mixed into a final song.

All source sounds are recorded straight from the MC-505. The track has been finalized using Logic Pro X."

New Corsynth C108 DUAL VCA

via Corsynth

"The C108 is a dual VCA with selectable linear and exponential response.

Each VCA features :
A signal input.
An initial gain control.
A voltage control input with a level potentiometer.
A switch to select linear or exponential response.
An output.

The VCAs in this modules are not only attenuators, they can also boost the input signal. Using the initial gain potentiometer and a five volts CV signal, the VCA has a maximum gain of 2 (doubles the signal amplitude). This is very useful for signal processing or to boost external signals."

Pearl Fightman FM-8 Rare Analog Drum Synth

via this auction

Note this does not have any sequencing capabilities.  It is a drum synth aka drum brain.

"This is a fully working very rare Pearl FM-8 Fightman Analog Drum Machine/Synthesizer. I believe it was made before the Syncussion. The closest machine that resembles it in my opinion is a Roland TR-606, except the Fightman has some very real sounding Toms. The Hi Hat, Crash, are very Metallic and the Ride is almost like a Synth Tone, it's beautiful!

This Drum Synth is very hard to come by, trust me.

This unit does not have Midi.

I will include 2 homemade adapters that have 3.5mm inputs so this can be triggered with a trigger sequencer like a Beststep pro, or Modular Synth."

You can find a video of one posted here.

Roland Jupiter-8 with MIDI

via this auction

"8 voices 16 oscillators of the fattest analog sweetness you ever heard. I just had it gone over with a fine tooth comb by Wes Taggert of Analogics expert vintage synth repairs and restorations. It was cleaned, calibrated, battery replaced. He's known worldwide for his expertise on vintage analog synths and he's done many of these. Noteworthy to mention is this unit also has been retrofitted with the Encore Electronics Midi kit which adds another dimension of coolness to be able to sync arpeggiator and control via midi for sequencing, doubles the patch memory to 128 and much more. Everything on it works as it should."

Korg DSS-1 Digital Sampling Synthesizer SN 000694

via this auction

"A wonderful early digital synthesizer. With eight notes of polyphony, two oscillators per voice, a noise source, two multi-stage envelopes, a resonant filter and auto-bend, the DSS-1 has much in common with Korg's previous flagship DW-8000. But it went much further, boasting twin digital delays, oscillator sync, an improved unison mode, a lush analog VCF switchable between 12 and 24dB, and more. Whereas the DW-8000 got its raw material from 16 stored digital waves, the DSS1's oscillators take their source from sampling, additive synthesis, or even hand-drawn waveforms"

I forget what waveforms are present for the oscillators. Do they include the DW-8000 waveforms or just your standard ones? If you know, feel free to comment. I found this DW-8000 resource site, but didn't see them listed, quickly parsing through the site.

Emu Emulator II SN 1338 with in built HxC drive & Save Ferris Sticker

via this auction

The "Save Ferris" sticker is a reference to Ferris Beuller's Day Off of course. Click through for the famous scene with it. The sticker appears to have been added since March of 2014.

via the listing: "For sale is this fantastic Emulator II classic 8-bit sampler, upgraded to an inbuilt HxC drive in addition to the 5-inch floppy. It comes complete with a full library of hundreds of disks in HxC format (the entire Emulator factory library plus both volumes of the stunning OMI Universe of Sounds collection, plus some oddities).

The Emulator is for many people THE defining keyboard of the 80s. It made its way onto countless chart hits and helped to nail the sound of a generation. The combination of 8-bit samples and clever, companding 12-bit convertors gave it a weight and authority that still seats the sounds instantly in a mix. For strings and orchestral sounds there’s a definite larger-than-life quality, while synths and basses benefit from the sheer heft of the machine’s low-end. It’s a dream to play and listen to :-)

This unit has been overhauled and repaired and is in generally excellent working order. It’s been upgraded with the hugely useful HxC mod, in a proper 5.25” housing (rather than a clunky stuck-on-the-front-panel job like some I’ve seen on eBay recently!) which holds hundreds of disk images on an SD card. The EII comes with a huge library of hundreds of sounds (actually, I think it’s well over a thousand), all of which load up sweetly without the risk of damaged or erased disks. This is a treasure trove of classic patches which have graced an awful lot of hits – you can play “spot the Top Ten song” with many of them.

Operationally the EII is in perfect working order with one small caveat: some of the pushbuttons sometimes need a couple of presses to get them to trigger. The most affected is the Sample button, which clearly got a lot of use back in the day; sometimes I have to press it two or three times to get it to engage. Most of the day-to-day buttons, like the numerical keypad and the Disk button – both of which you use regularly to load patches – are fine though, so it’s only if you’re doing your own sampling that you’re likely to notice this; and then it’s a minor annoyance rather than a serious fault. I’ve done plenty of sampling with the keyboard and it’s never really been an issue. The sliders, the backlight, the pots etc are all fine (and have indeed been cleaned and serviced – see “Service History” below).

Sampling, incidentally, works brilliantly and sounds fantastic. You can of course use the EII as a library machine, but if you roll your sleeves up the sampling is (a) really easy to do, (b) brilliant sounding and (c) really good fun. Just stick a mic in the back and you’re good to go!

All eight voice cards are working perfectly, the 5.25” floppy drive is clean and functions (so you can access any files on actual floppies and easily transfer them to the HxC drive for archiving and future-proofing), the output is clean; basically everything is great :-)"

Stroke Machine for iPad Updated to v 2.0.4

Stroke Machine - Wolfram Franke

Wolframe Franke was previously with Waldorf. He was the developer behind Largo, PPG Wave 2.V & 3.V, Attack and Steinberg's V1. Stroke Machine is one of my favorite synths apps for the iPad.

"Stroke Machine is a professional Groove Synthesizer for the iPad.

• Play your percussion sounds in the new Pad view.
• Mix your tracks in the new Mix view.
• Assign MIDI Controllers to any sound, effect or mixer parameter to control them with an external MIDI hardware controller.
• Audiobus 2 support including saving and loading of the current Stroke Machine kit.

What's New in Version 2.0.4

• Equalizer bands now react better to touches. When no handle has been touched exactly, the nearest band is used for setting its frequency and gain. This implies that you must touch the bandwidth handles exactly to change them, as it was in all previous versions.
• Fixed crash when double-tapping into an empty area of the oscillator or equalizer displays.
• Fixed rarely occuring wrong Automation behaviour.
• Fixed possible crash when removing steps.
• Fixed possible crash when playing the melodic keyboard.
• Fixed possible envelope misbehaviour.
• Improved reception of non-timestamped MIDI Clock from some apps.
• Fixed 24 bit sample playback in 64 bit version.
• Fixed incorrect LFO rates.
• Lots of little improvements and fixes.
• AudioBus V2.2.2.
• Note that this is the last version supporting iOS 6. All future versions are going to require a newer iOS version."

VGM #88: Home (Hue)

Published on Oct 5, 2016 Ace Waters

"I played through Hue as a relaxing break from the hectic final week of getting Purple side ready and I enjoyed it so much. I am really surprised I am not hearing more people talk about this game. So, I decided I would cover a song from the excellent and melancholic soundtrack, and say "Go play this game!" Because its really dope. I played it on PS4, but its available on Steam and Xbox One too! It is a puzzle platformer where you have control of a color wheel that changes the background color, allowing colored objects in the foreground to appear and disappear, depending on the color you choose! Its really good. Go check it out!


Also, the whole soundtrack is super pretty and sad and chill. So, go grab it if you like sad chill things.
