Two Oberheim SEMS in Custom Case

via this auction

"This set of Oberheim Electronics Synthesizer Expander modules comes from my late-husband's recording studio. I do not know if it works. I know nothing about it. It looks like he bought two modules and built a synthesizer with it? The modules aren't attached to the front of the unit, so they move around. This will be a very difficult and delicate operation to ship. It comes from a clean, smoke free environment..."

Preparing Samples for Radio Music Eurorack Sampler

Published on Oct 21, 2016 Voltage Control Lab
Update: Re-Published on Oct 22, 2016

"One issue that perplexes some users of the Music Thing Radio Music is how to get your own samples onto the module. We look at how to convert files to RAW format and where to go from there.

It must be mentioned that file names must be made in the 8:3 format, meaning file names must be no longer than 8 alpha-numeric characters long, written in uppercase lettering and with the addition of ".RAW" at the end."

Kenton Celebrates 30th Anniversary as MIDI Solutions Specialist Par Excellence

"LONDON, UK: MIDI solutions specialist Kenton is proud to be celebrating its 30th anniversary — around 11,000 days since founder John K. Price began by building a cost-effective and well-specified MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) for his beloved 1979-vintage Oberheim OB-X programmable analogue polysynth to allow it to successfully communicate with the outside musical world — as of October 2016...

Who better, then, to reflect upon past glories and future developments than Kenton Director John K. Price himself? “At Kenton we made our very first product in 1986, a MIDI retrofit kit for the Oberheim OB-X synthesizer; since then we have been committed to producing excellent and innovative products for musicians,” maintains the inventive individual who started the ball rolling all those years ago, adding: “Over the last three decades our products have been used worldwide in many situations — from studios and stages to home use — by professional, semi-pro, and hobby musicians alike, and we are immensely proud of our longstanding reputation for both quality and reliability.

“Nothing matters more to us than our customers, and so we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of those who have supported us and allowed our company to grow and flourish for the last 30 years. We have some exciting new developments to announce in the near future, and we look forward to solving MIDI problems for many more years to come.”

Cave Birds (Modular Synth Soundscape)

Published on Oct 21, 2016 Autotross

"This patch started with my wife and I creating some bird calls as a learning exercise.

The Q960 sequencer is triggered with a key press and does a little 3-step chirp - some random pitch sample and hold is also added in. More randomness is added to the Corsynth Dual Loopable Envelope's attack & decay, which controls the Synthcube SEM filter.

We then added some white noise wind filtered by the Corsynth Lowpass Filter, which is swept randomly by the same sample and hold (with a bit of slew).

Finally, rainy drip-drops come straight out of the Mutable Instruments Braids (MU version by FSFX) via the Particle algorithm.

And that's it, Cave Birds. Enjoy!"

Keith Emerson with Noddy's Puncture - 2005

Published on Oct 21, 2016 noddyspuncture

And a little intermission with the one and only Keith Emerson. I think the Ensoniq SD-1 is freaking out a little. Minimoog Model D joins in and of course the Roland JD-800 roles its eyes in the middle. Man, Keith can play. Nuts. Update: JD-800 gets some Emerson love.

"As is most apparent in this video, some of my keyboard stand was set *on the limit*.... meaning that the lower keyboard "arms" were sticking out so far from their anchor points that it was actually acting like some sort of diving board..! I was aware of this... but Emo wasn't and I completely forgot to mention it to him. He has quite a heavy touch, so at times you see me kneeling on the floor next to him trying to steady it. I had my work cut out here trying to help... in fact at one point, rushing around, I nearly accidentally kicked the stool from under him..! It didn't phase him at all. As Emo told me afterwards - and I quote: "You know, it's very hard playing a moving keyboard...!" Enjoy... this is a funny one... ;)"

discoDSP Takes Over Ownership of OB-Xd

You might remember the OB-Xd from this previous video. It looks like discoDSP has taken over development.

via Synth Anatomy:

"It was kind of surprise to see that discoDSP announced this week that it has taken over the OB-Xd Synthesizer project. Before some years, Soshi Studio developed this Synthesizer Plugin (PC, MAC, Linux) and released for free in all the communities. Now this great plugin has a new home. The developer behind the Corona Synthesizer, Discovery Pro Synthesizer and many more got the rights of this plugin and continue this product.

For all users who doesn't use this plugin yet or not heart before, OB-Xd is a free Oberheim OB-X, OB-Xa and OB-8 Synthesizer emulation. For a free project, the sound quality is really good.

While not copying originals, some of the features were taken to a better point. Continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP)-HP in 12 dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24 dB mode). 32 and 64 bit versions included.Thanks to 2Dat for the original Ob-Xd and Soshi Studio for giving the rights to continue this wonderful product.

You can download it for free here: OBXd"
