1977 PAIA Oz Portable Analog Synthesizer

Published on Aug 2, 2012 keyboard resource

"Not much to this little keyboard. It has a built-in speaker and can be carried around like a suitcase. It's all note polyphonic and has a strange pitch bender pad."

via this auction

"For sale is a rare PAiA Oz 3760, an old school poly-synth kit with a very distinctive sound. This early 1970s synth kit is assembled and portable. Needs work and I don't know it's playability. Case latches a little loose and top speaker decorative bezel is loose. Looks easily repaired, but I'm not equipped to do so.

The 1 1/3 octave keyboard is fully polyphonic and has a selectable five-octave range. As used by DEVO. The PAiA takes 9v batteries and has a built in speaker.

Background: PAiA Electronics, Inc. is an American synthesizer kit company that was started by John Simonton in 1967. It sells various musical electronics kits including analog synthesizers,theremins, mixers and various music production units designed by founder John Simonton, Craig Anderton, Marvin Jones, Steve Wood and others.

Shades of Techno - Moog Little/Slim Phatty Soundbank Tutorial - 5Pin Media

Published on Oct 6, 2016 Loopmasters

"5Pin Media proudly announces ‘Shades of Techno - Moog Little/Slim Phatty Soundbank’, ( debuting their new Soundbank series. Soundbank will be bringing musicians and producers the best in up to date sounds for popular modern hardware synths spanning various genres and styles.

About Shades Of Techno - Moog Little/Slim Phatty Soundbank

Shades of Techno contains 100 presets compatible with Moog Little Phatty Tribute/Stage I and II, Slim Phatty synthesizers. The presets are provided both as a whole soundbank, as well as individual patches, all in .syx format. You'll need a MIDI interface and a SysEx application to load the bank into your instrument.

Most of the patches are designed in a way that yields itself best towards sequencing. Of course the patches can also be played by hand (the bank contains a number of one-shot fx and percussive sounds), but the best results are obtained by programming tight, sequenced patterns.

New Delptronics LDB-2e Analog Drums Module Demo

Published on Oct 6, 2016 Delptronics

"This is a demo of the Delptronics LDB-2e “Little Drummer Boy” Analog Drums Eurorack module.

It packs packs eight drum voices into only 6HP: kick, snare, low tom, hi tom, wood block, rim shot, and open and closed hi-hats. In the video, the drums are sequenced with the Delptronics Trigger Man module, but they can be triggered with any trigger or gate signal.

The LDB-2e is an update to our popular LDB-1e module. It is only 2HP wider and now includes the the individual volume controls and output jacks functionality of the old expansion module. The sounds are different too, so you don't have to sell your old module.

The LDB-2x expansion module (also shown) is totally new and gives you knob and CV control of the pitch of every drum, and the decay of the kick and open hi-hat. The video demonstrates these features using a pitch sequencer module.

The module uses totally analog circuitry, not samples. The audio was direct into the camera. No effects were used during or after recording.

Patch Notes #22 - Eurorack Sequencer in Ornament & Crime

Published on Oct 5, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes #22 explores the Quantermain mode in the polymorphic Ornament & Crime module, a 4 channel Eurorack pitch quantizer with 48 different scales and some amazing hidden features.

Ornament & Crime is in Quantermain mode, of course. Trigger3 and CV3 are receiving cv and clock out from the DU-SEQ, fitting the sequence into an Ionian scale and then out from channel C to the pitch input on the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas. The clock for the sequencer as well as the pattern sequence for the BI are being controlled via Reaktor Blocks and the F1 controller seen in the distance.

The gate out on the DU-SEQ is routed to Mutable Instruments Braids trigger input. Channel D on the O&C is set to Turing Machine mode, instead of receiving pitch cv from another source. This mode randomizes a stepped series of cv voltages, and can freeze a certain number of steps and loop them. This mode is routed out from channel D to Braids. To enable some control over the randomization and looping, I routed a row on Make Noise Pressure Points to CV1 on the O&C and selected CV1 as the voltage source for the channel D Turing probability. A specific step on the PP is selected, so that corresponding knob can be used as a voltage offset, locking the random Turing sequence into a loop.

Braids is then routed out to the Vintage Synth Lab VCF-74, and on to the Mutable Instruments Warps running the Parasites alt firmware in delay mode. So beefy.

Another trigger sequence from Blocks is routed out of the Audio 10 DJ (NOT a DC coupled interface) to the Malekko ADLFO, which is controlling the noise hihat in the Roland Scooper. Yet another sequence is routed to the second channel on the ADLFO, with one envelope routed to the Scooper kick drum (see our Roland Aira Drum Machine tutorials) and a second envelope routed to the FM input on the Tiptop Audio Z-3000. The square wave out is routed to the Make Noise Optomix, which is also being modulated by an envelope on the ADLFO, and then down to the Malekko Mix 4 with the rest."
