"He say you Braidrunna!"

Published on Nov 12, 2016

"Why is it every time I watch that movie I can't seem to get it out of my head for days? That background atmosphere just seems to bounce around in my skull as if I was in a constant trance. Seemed the only way to get it out of my head was to give it a go with some eurorack modules.

Modules used:

Mi Elements run through a Grendel Formant filter modulated by bubblesound uLFO. E350 Morphing Terrarium run through Korg MKP2s set on tape Echo. Speak & Read run through a ZDSP with Halls of Valhalla cart. The over all pumping sound is a MI Braids with a AD Sequencer 1 controlling pitch. The Sequencer 1 also controls pitch of e350 and the Elements."

DarkStar II - Red Sound Dark Star

Published on Nov 12, 2016 100 Things I Do

"I tried to make 2 other videos this week but they did not work out. So lets revisit the Dark Star. Everything in this clip besides the pro 2 at the very end of the track was done on the Dark Star. Hope you enjoy :D The Video is more of a collage than me performing the tracks live. Being a black box with no keyboard its a little tricky to make a clip engaging I think."

Waldorf Q Rack

"This is an amazing sounding 3 oscillator VA that also gives you wavetables for 2 of the oscs. It has great filters (including an amazing comb filter), sequencer, arpeggiator, effects and tons more."

"Great vintage digital recorder that syncs up perfectly with all of the junos and 808/909 drum machines."

Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 Keyboard Synthesizer, REV 3 SN 4601

via this auction

"This Prophet-5 1000 has serial number 4601. One of the first fully programmable polyphonic analog synths, the Prophet 5 is the most classic synthesizer of the eighties! It is capable of a delightful analog sound unique to Sequential's Prophet series in which the P5 was King! Five voice polyphony - two oscillators per voice and a white noise generator. The analog filters, envelope and LFO all sound great and are extremely flexible. The P5 had patch memory storage as well, which scanned and memorized every knob setting for storing and recalling your sounds - a desperately needed feature at the time!

Rev 3 is the final version, and subsequent Rev 3.1, Rev 3.2 and Rev 3.3 each are capable of taking a MIDI retrofit. They're also capable of microtonal tuning. The Rev 3 uses Curtis chips instead of Rev 2's SSMs. The Rev 3 is considered the most reliable of all of the different versions and they had 120 memory patches."

Cheers to Flemming!

Published on Nov 12, 2016 Wein Glas

"Thanks Flemming/Gotharman for making the wonderful AnamonoX!

If you are looking for a real modular synthesizer with analogue filters, sampler, cv/gates for your eurorack/vintage synths and Midi for everything else: Gotharman just made it!

And it is fun to use! Even the touch keyboard works with gloves ;)"

Linnstrument + Minisizer - Day 3

Published on Nov 12, 2016 cube48

"Mini demo of Minisizer played with Linnstrument. Slight background hiss is an artefact of the patch, Minisizer as such is not noisy at all. Stereo delay was added in Bitwig Studio while recording. I'm still learning how to play LS and studying music harmony so bear with my limited skills (stuck to minor scale here).
Minisizer is miniature yet powerful modular synth by Anyware Instruments."

1979 FARFISA Syntorchestra Vintage Analog Synthesizer

Published on Nov 12, 2016 keyboard resource

Some presets on the FARFISA Syntorchestra.

via this auction

"Works good. But, it needs to be tuned frequently. The included Service Manual has the procedures on how to do this. Also includes "Musical Registrations" booklet, sales receipt for the two booklets and corrections to the Service Manual sheet.

It produces unique sounds unlike most synths. The closest I've heard is the ARP Pro-Soloist/DGX. But, the Syntorchestra also has additional polyphonic voices which the Pro-Soloist lacks.

Polyphonic voices: Trombone, Trumpet, Piano, Viola
Monophonic voices: Tuba, Trombone, Trumpet, Baritone Sax, Alto Sax, Bass Flute, Flute, Piccolo, Violin
- Volume Poli
- Volume Mono
- Brilliance Poli
- Brilliance Mono
- Vibrato Speed
- Vibrato Mono on/off
- Vibrato Poli on/off
- Vibrato Delay on/off
- Soffiato (soft attack) amount
- Decay amount
- Portamento Timer (amount)
- Mono drop down none, 3rd, 5th, 6th knob
- Mono Pitch +/-
- Poli Cancel on/off
- Mono Cancel
- Portamento Constant on/off
- Portamento Temporary on while pressed down
- Mono Wha Wha on/off
- Soffiato or Decay selector

There is a separate output jack for Poli voices which is why they stated "Stereo" on the front panel."

Dreadbox Murmux v2 Analog Synth - More Screwing Around

Published on Nov 12, 2016 ProckGnosis

"Just playing around with the Murmux v2. Just can't say it enough how THICK this thing sounds, and I think the video demonstrates that quite nicely.

Someone mentioned in a post that they think this thing rivals a Minimoog Model D. Well, I don't have a model D, but I have a Voyager, and yes, this thing competes quite nicely."

FAT Freebass analog bass synthesizer

via this auction

"The Freeform Analogue Technologies (FAT) Freebass FB383 (also sold as the MAM MB33) is a 1U 19-inch rack-mounting MIDI synthesizer module dedicated to doing just one thing - imitating the sounds of the Roland TB-303 Bassline. It uses genuine analogue technology to produce the familiar 'acid' sounds, but adds MIDI control, so you don't have to cope with the Roland's quirky programming system - just hook up the Freebass to your MIDI sequencer, and play away. Dispensing with fripperies such as patch memories and continuous controllers, the Freebass is all about live performance - once you start twiddling those knobs in real time, you'll be lost in a world of acid madness."

Hammond and Minimoog Jams!

Elektron Analog Heat vs Ableton's Operator

Roland TR-808 Drum Machine With Custom Decksaver Cover and Midi Converter

via this auction

"Excellent condition. This vintage drum machine has been cared for greatly and works perfectly. All of the outputs work great, and all of the pots are flawless. No issues at all. I'm also throwing in a Kenton D-sync midi converter ($130 value), so you can have it sync with your Sequencer/DAW, as well as a Decksaver shell cover ($75 value)."

Roland MC-202

via this auction

"This machine is best for those who want to get 303-like patterns (it has accent just like the 303) and basslines with an SH-101 sound. If you can handle programming the notes into its sequencer you can have a lot of fun. It is used by Autechre, Future Sound Of London, Coldcut, The Human League, Underworld, Aphex Twin, LFO, Jedi Knights, Plastikman, Astral Projection, Sabres Of Paradise, Freddy Fresh, Jimmy Edgar, ProtoType 909 and Taylor 808 and countless folks like us.It sounds very much like the TB-303 and SH-101 bass synths. Sometimes considered the "poor man's 303". It has a very evolved form of TB-303 like programming (more like the MC-4) and SH-101 like controls of the VCO, VCF, VCA, LFO, Envelope and Mixer sections. The LCD display is a great feature too.

Programming the MC-202 can be done with the built-in monophonic sequencer and you can control it with CV/Gate converter.

The sequencer is actually a 2-channel CV/gate sequencer, with both channels being capable of driving a separate external synth. It's a very useful unit, also, for its DINsync capabilities; it can receive on one port, and send over two, and also can 'split' DINsync to branch a sync signal out to multiple devices."

Published on Nov 12, 2016 SuicideServer

"WARNING. The 'music' in this video contains absolutey no analogs at all. You may think it sounds like acid and even analog but I can assure you thats just an evil trick that your mind plays on you. So if you can absolutely not take it, feel free to bitch about it at your nearest forum or maybe ask a stranger on the street for a hug ;)
