Oberheim 4 Voice OB-X

via this auction

"Oberheim OB-X 4-Voice Vintage Analog Synthesizer from 1979 with MIDI in good cosmetic condition and 100% functional.

It was serviced 2 years ago and has been in storage since. Scope of work done included re-capping of the power supply, as well as fixing the underrated power supply design flaw (which all OB series synths suffer from), new key bushings were added and a MIDI kit was installed, then fully calibrated and tuned. Everything works flawlessly and it sounds great."

Arturia DrumBrute Videos by itijik

Published on Dec 17, 2016 itijik


1. Arturia Drumbrute pushed to its limits!

"100% drumbrute! I set the tempo to 300 bpm to be able to design the bass and synth sounds! The reverb added is the Strymon Bluesky."

2. Hard Beat with Arturia Drumbrute!

"Using Drumbrute's zap output through a simple circuit I made to drive the arcade button sequencer with swing! The sequencer is set up to play the string plucks from the Mutable Instruments Clouds with alt Parasite firmware."

3. Breaking down some wubs with Arturia Drumbrute!

"Yes, wubs. The Arturia Drumbrute is being processed by the eurorack modular, namely the Serge Resonant EQ by random source. If you're like me, you see scenes in your head when listening to music. What do you picture in your head when you hear this?"

KAWAI K5000S Additive & PCM Synthesizer SN 602777 with Original Box

via this auction

"The Kawai K5000S Advanced Additive Synth is an ultra powerful sound tool. Although I will admit my favorite feature is the arpeggiator. The huge number of knobs and controls make this an amazingly expressive instrument."

Session Ten {10} - Modular grid

Published on Dec 17, 2016 E I S E N T A N Z

"Playing on my modular, just for fun... love this self resonated Lamda filter, vocoded in Warps, and modulated by Moskwa..."


Published on Dec 17, 2016 Nick Jackson

"Another loose jam with my very small system, using the Qu-Bit Chord as the sound source and processing with Clouds.

Chord is being sequenced by an SQ-1, going through Ripples and into Clouds. A Uoki Toki 4LFO is being used to modulate the voicing and inversion of the Chord, as well as the Freeze and Density of Clouds. A MI Tides is also being used to modulate the Texture of Clouds. The mix then runs out through a ZVex Lo-fi Junky (guitar pedal version), Strymon El Capistan, and a Strymon BlueSky on the Shimmer setting. A limiter was then lightly added in the DAW to control the peaks.

As the video progresses I use Clouds to slowly deteriorate the loop into a washy unintelligible mess. The camera gave out when my SD card became full, but I included the entirety of the audio anyway.

As always, thank you so much for watching/listening!"

1975 ARP OMNI 1 Vintage Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer String Machine

Published on Dec 17, 2016 keyboard resource

via this auction

Update: Re-listed here. Almost thought this was this one, but realized the rug is different.

"Looks good and works correctly. The slider caps have fallen apart on the inside. So, I wedged some electrical tape inside to keeps them from falling off. Some bolts are missing on the bottom.

With this original model, there is only one synth envelope which is shared for all keys. So, if you are holding down notes and hit another key, all held notes will retrigger. This was corrected with the OMNI 2 (1977)."

If you get lemons, make lemon juice: Theremin Tale #1

Published on Dec 17, 2016 Carolina Eyck

"Playing an instrument is like telling a story. No matter how abstract it may sound, one can always imagine a fable taking place, note after note. Today I improvised on the sentence 'If you get lemons, make lemon juice', sent by Natalie.

I encourage you all to write down short tales and favorite sayings here in the comments, and I hope to improvise on as many stories as possible."
