Grant Richter of Wiard Evenfall Mini Modular

via this auction

"Up for sale is a very rare factory-assembled Evenfall Mini Modular semi-modular synthesizer in excellent cosmetic and functional condition. Item will ship with original power supply. It's in great shape and works perfectly. It is one of the biggest sounding monosynths I've heard, vintage or otherwise. It's incredible and sounds somewhere in-between a Roland and vintage oberheim (sem) oscillator sound, with a very raw, drippy filter like an Arp Odyssey.

Analogue Solutions - Raw Session with Oberkorn sequencing #1

Published on Nov 19, 2016 rezfilter

"Here's a quick capture of the Analogue Solutions Oberkorn running a few synths, drums and modules. The Medic Module Defibrillator is utilizing the CV cutoff input from the Oberkorn. Telemark is on bass (modulated via Oberkorn), Concussor drums, Nyborg on kick drum.

Just some raw, live fun...

I'll throw a few of these raw jam/studio sessions up in the coming days. Lots in the archive that are sitting on the cutting room floor!"

EP06 VCFs - Elektor Formant Modular Synthesizer Overhaul

Published on Nov 19, 2016 Marco Reps

"In this episode we take a look at the voltage controlled filter 12 dB and 24 dB modules and their theory of operation. One module needs a bit of work because an op-amp has passed away. VCFs have almost no applications apart from music electronics, but the integrator amplifiers, they are based on, are very interesting and useful."

Quadnic, Doepfer SEM, Demora - Berlin School style DEMO

Published on Nov 19, 2016 Alba Ecstasy

Some nice sweet spots in this one.

"Playing the Studio Electronic Quadnic, filtered by Doepfer A-106-5 SEM VCF and processed by Roland Demora.
Spoiler alert: could be a very boring demo if you're not a fan either of modulars or Berlin School style!

First I set up all four oscillators of Quadnic, with different waves and pitch.
Second, I passed a little bit through all Process Modes and kept until to the end of the video my favoured one: W SEQ.

Roland Demora - which suffered a dramatic price drop (about 149 euros on Thomann) - is giving me the exactly pan delay I like. I did not had time to customize with my iPad (I only tested a few factory patches from the customizer) but it seems to be a monster. You see a few twists of its functions.

Disting mk3 - LFO - is modulating a little bit the SEM filter (by the way - a very fat and juicy replica from Doepfer) and I used the Beatstep Pro to control the CV of Quadnic.

Joerg Schaaf Step Sequencer Business

Joerg Schaaf is the man behind Radikal Technologies.

"That track is from my "The Daily Schaaf"- Description can be found here:"

"What is the magic behind a step sequencer? Playing 8 or 16 notes in a row for half an hour? I don’t think so. The magic starts, when you change something at the sequences, while the sequences are running. In my first sequencer example you can listen to two main sequences. The second fades in after a couple of bars. As soon as the sequence reached it’s final volume it starts to rotate by one step against the first sequence. That means for a sequence with a 16th resolution, that the second sequence get’s delayed against the first one by one 16th note for each rotate step. I am doing that multiple times. At the end the second sequence is 11/16th behind.

I added one track with overdubs to the pattern performance to add further variations – some sounds, SFX etc. All sounds are performed on the Spectralis 2 synthesizer."

Qu-Bit Chord Disintegration Jam #2

"Another 'disintegration jam'.

Chord into Ripples into Clouds, then some secret sauce from my guitar pedalboard :P

My camera spontaneously gave out towards the end again -_- ..Anyone possibly have some insight as to why the Canon Rebel t5 does this? ...but I kept recording audio and figured I'd share it anyway.

Thanks for checking it out! Much love _/\_"

Sequential Circuits Pro One Monophonic Synthesizer SN 1483

via this auction

"This J-wire equipped Pro-One is fully functional and in great condition. It does have a crack in the mod wheel which was filled in with expoxy. The synth was recently tuned and calibrated--it sounds amazing!

One of the more beastly of mono synths ever created, the Sequential Circuits Pro-One is a powerhouse of punchy bass and singing leads. It is comparable with the Roland SH-101 or the Moog Source, feature-wise, but sounds very different from either. The oscillator hard-sync sounds are especially exciting and only emphasized by the sharp filter resonance and super snappy envelopes.

Steiner Parker Synthacon Model 174 Vintage Synthesizer SN 1270

Published on Nov 18, 2016 johnnyangel69

"Demo of Steiner Parker Synthacon vintage synthesizer. Admittedly I am not a synthesizer pro but just took this video to show some of the sounds that can be made with the Synthacon."

Update: looks like this one is for sale on Reverb.

via the auction:

"Here is an extremely rare Steiner Parker Synthacon Analog Synthesizer. The serial number on back is 1270 and there is also a hand written sharpie "1270A" on the bottom of the unit.

I picked this up locally here in Salt Lake City a little while ago. These Steiner Parker synths were made right here in SLC and as far as I know this unit has never left the state of Utah, but I do not know it's history so I cannot say for sure. The guy I got it from said he got it from a friend who claimed this may have been a prototype. I really don't know. All keys are working (check out video time 11:55) to show all notes from keys. This synth is pretty amazing but way beyond me as far as putting it to good use and making the most of it. I've uploaded a video here for you to check out the sounds this synth can make. Of course this video of sounds is only the tip of the iceberg as far as what this thing is capable of."

This video music is a transitional one until a figured out what thematic I'll approach.
Using for this video: Roland Gaia SH-01 for pads (controlled by microKorg), Eurorack as sequences and bass, Virus Ti2 for lead Circuit for percussion and Roland JD-Xi for sequence and percussion.
