"Come Around" - early 1980s style electronic song

Published on Oct 30, 2016 SynthMania modular, Roland CSQ-600 sequencer, & Juno-60. Also see this post.

"A song I'm working on. Recorded all live in one take on two tracks, hence the various mistakes :-D Disclaimer... I'm not a singer... if a real singer wants to sing it, let me know
'Come Around'

We've come too far
and that is all - she says
and all is gone

that much we were
and I believe you now
the soul I share

I've got a long day
true essence in your eyes
true faith
so long so soon

Come Around
the track

Come Around
the track

For you too long
It's just not fair - she says
It's not for me

it looks so blue
the beauty of your eyes
the sound in you

The words you don't say
the anger of one day
Fine Line
For me for you

Come Around
the track

Come Around
the track

Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh Interview on NPR on the New Minimoog Model D

NPR posted an interview with Mark Mothersbaugh on the synths that changed pop music. Click through and hit the red play button on the top left. The Minimoog Model D gets the focus. This one in via Ali.

via NPR: "Long ago, electronic music was created on massive consoles the size of refrigerators. But in 1970, the Minimoog Model D was unleashed, and its impact was nothing short of revolutionary. It was the driving force behind new sounds that emerged in years to come — jazz-rock from Herbie Hancock, electrifying pop from Michael Jackson and futuristic music from Devo, the rock and synth pop group perhaps best known for 'Whip It.'

This year, Moog Music is reissuing the Minimoog, hand-building them almost exactly as they were over four decades ago. Mark Mothersbaugh, a composer, producer and Devo founding member, joined NPR's Rachel Martin to explain the Minimoog's significance — and his pure love for the instrument. (One of Mothersbaugh's own Minimoogs from the mid-'70s joined the interview as well; hear the full conversation at the audio link.)

The revelatory thing about the Minimoog, Mothersbaugh says, was its portability: You could fold it up and travel with it. 'In the old days, synths were like people standing around in lab coats touching knobs and dials,' he says. 'And this allowed you to move out of that environment into nightclubs.'"

Roland MC-505 Groovebox with Aira Skin For Sale

via this auction

You might remember this one from this post.

"Here is a unique opportunity to acquire a one of a kind Roland MC-505 Groovebox.

Completely stripped down, cleaned and rebuilt, this 505 has had two replacement pots which came direct from Roland, the last ones in stock we were led to believe. The other pots have been rebuilt.
A new reproduction slider has also been fitted as the originals are now unobtainable, this has been carefully trimmed to match since the picture was taken. And finally a replacement Tact Switch.

As you can see from the pictures, the power supply has been fully re-capped using Nichicon capacitors where possible.

Also visible from the pictures you can see that the screen is unmarked with no lines etc, which can be common on these.

This 505 has a custom skin made by StyleFlip, which was designed by ourselves to give the 505 the look of a modern Aira, which really brings it up to date. This is made of a special material which makes for easy removal and re-application. If you find that you are not 100% happy with the fitment you can simply peel off carefully and re-apply to your liking.

"Many of you have told me you'd love to own a LinnStrument but can't afford the $1499 price. So we've released "LinnStrument 128" for the lower price of $999. It's identical to LinnStrument except 128 note pads instead of 200. It fits nicely in a backpack and includes the new Step Sequencer. (See below.)

And on the software update:

"We've just released software version 2.0.0 with the following new features:

* New Polyphonic 2-Track Step Sequencer!
* Significantly better velocity response
* Release velocity. Now LinnStrument is "5D" in Roli-speak. :)
* 4 new LED colors: white, orange, lime and pink.
* 14-bit pressure resolution using LSB/MSB Control Change pairs.
* The MIDI OUT jack can now also act as a combined MIDI OUT and MIDI THRU.
* Panel and Foot Switches can now be assigned to Tap Tempo.

This one in via Jason, aka bassling, who had the following to say:

"You can see I've played the drums, then recorded the MIDI through a Roland TR-707.

These drums are accompanied by an Atomosynth Mochika XL and King Capitol Punishment Utopia Synth, the latter has a little Valhalla Shimmer reverb added in the box and I've used Ozone 7 to master.

1979 ARP OMNI 2 Vintage Analog String Synthesizer

via this auction

"1979 ARP OMNI-2 Vintage Analog String Synthesizer Mostly Working Solina Moog

Looks beatup with scratches and fading. But, most features work. A previous owner even installed two working power outlets on the back. Replacement slider caps have been added to more closely match how it looked when new.

What doesn't work (or doesn't work well):
- Decay and Sustain in ADSR section. These are always at 100% regardless of there the slider is positioned.
- String Fast/Slow Release (top panel, right) seems to be at near 100% (long) if the slider is set a few millimeters to the right. There is no range.
- Single trigger illuminates but doesn't seem to do anything.

This thing is built with steel and is rugged. It weighs 42 lbs."

Teisco 110F Analog synthesier w/Midi

via this auction

"*MIDI to CV-Gate Interface MCV-628 by Papareil Synth Labs. The interface lets you control notes and one selectable control (either Filter Cutoff, PWM1 or PWM2). The button is an auto learn button to learn the midi channel of the incomming midi messages. The switch is to choose if either the notes will be triggered by the keyboard or the incoming midi. The knob has 4 positions and decide which parameter will be affected by modulation message (cc1): 1-cutoff, 2-PWM1, 3-PWM2, 4-OFF. The LED is a multi purpose led which blinks 3 times at power on, after the complete init of the cpu/software. It means "All is ok". In normal working condition, the Gate led lights when a note is played or if a recognised SysEx message is received. […] When the interface is in Autolearn mode, the Gate led stay on, until a MIDI message has been received."

Yamaha CS-01, 1982, Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Missing some fader caps but they're all still functioning. Keys all work great. The battery cover is missing as well. The speaker still functions but it's really small and doesn't really do justice when you play bass lines Through headphones or a line out this thing sounds huge despite how dinky it looks. The cutoff filter has a huge sweep on it as well. Great little vintage analog monosynth for the price. Even has knobs on the side to add a guitar strap! Below is a description from vintage synth explorer. Check out a couple demos of this on YouTube. You'll be pleasantly surprised 😉."

Ambient Pads with Digitech Polara Pedal and Roland Gaia SH-01 Synthesizer

Published on Oct 30, 2016 Trackcheck

"This is a first test with the Digitech Polara Stereo FX Pedal and the Halo Program. I just play a double-oscillator supersaw-patch without any additional fx on the Gaia. The Halo-Reverb has a little shimmer in his tail but it is not the same as perhaps the strymon big sky. But if you have a look at the price, the Polara is a cheap and pretty stereo-pedal even for synth´s."

Live Synthesizer Jam 52 : Microkorg, Roland JU-06, Arturia Microbrute and ReFX Nexus 2

Published on Oct 30, 2016 Todd Smith

"This is my first serious step into using Ableton, VST and hardware together. I really enjoyed the results, maybe a bit to much. I ended up shaking the camera a bit with my leg. My B. =)

The Arturia Microbrute, Roland Boutique JP-08 and Re FX Nexus 2 are sequenced via midi in Ableton Live, while the Teenage engineering PO-12 is sampled for the drum tracks.

The Microkorg is played live and acts as a midi controller for the ReFX Nexus 2. I use key mapping in Ableton Live and the num pad on my PC Keyboard to control mutes and toggle midi control on the ReFX Nexus 2.
