Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 Analog Synthesizer SN 0332

via this auction

"This unit has been professionally maintained by techs in the Bay Area, and is in great condition. It has the firmware update professionally installed. More information on that upgrade can be found here. Among other things, this upgrade improves the tuning and allows for a greater degree of usability on the front panel of the synth. Included is the original OS chip, in case you would like to revert to the stock OS at some point.

It had a full keyboard assembly rebushing done a year ago, as well as a PSU upgrade (see external heat sink in photos), which allows for a more stable and cool operating temperature. At that time, the eletrolytic caps were changed, and all voices were tested and calibrated.

This unit has been taken very nice care of, and would make a beautiful addition to any studio or collection."

Alesis Ion Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Ion has 8-voice polyphony with 3 oscillators per voice, and is 4-part multi-timbral. It offers continuously variable wave shapes (sine waves can morph into square waves), plus osc-sync and FM synthesis. 16 filter types are included, along with two LFOs, Sample & Hold, and an Arpeggiator-all of which sync to MIDI clock. A powerful and intuitive modulation matrix is built in, as well as a 40-band vocoder that does not use up any polyphony. External stereo audio can be processed through the filters, effects, or the vocoder. A 160x160 graphic display provides instant visual feedback as a parameter is edited. Along with having 512 patch settings (all user-rewritable), the Ion has 64 multi-timbral setups. All parameters including arpeggiator settings are stored with each preset. The ION keyboard contains 49 velocity-sensitive keys, 4 analog outputs and 2 stereo analog inputs (all balanced and using 24-bit conversion), 4 individual insert effects, a stereo master multi-FX processor, and an internal universal power supply. Expression and sustain pedal ports as well as headphone jacks are also there. For those who want a versatile synth and can't afford the A6, this is the synth for you - arguably one of the best 'virtual-analog' synths for awesome, analogue-like sounds."

Tho things I wish Alesis included on the Ion were aftertouch and speed sensitive knobs. The resolution for filter cutoff is high, so it takes a few turns of the knob to fully open it up. It's a great sounding VA with three full oscillators.

modular and piano ambient session (Mutable instruments rings, 2hp TM + reface CP)

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

This ambient track is about chance, the 2hp TM is strumming the MI rings module on a random basis, and I wanted the modular system to decide the tempo and mood of the track. So what I am doing here is simply following the cues from the Turing Machine when its triggering, my brain is literally being controlled by the random strokes and strums you are hearing.

Machine controlling man, it is so beautiful.

Current rack:

Modular: MI rings, sound source, LFO on brightness and damping. Penrose is quantizing MI rings notes coming in from the peaks, which is in LFO mode, and with a messy curve so sort of unpredictable. One rings channel goes into audio I/O the other through the morphagene for some glitchy time lag randomness.

I am as You can see controlling Penrose quantizer manually at times doing simple root note key changes... but other than that the melodies and tempo are completely random.

maths is the acting clock for this piece

Reface CP gets some processing from the catalinbread csidman and Strymon big-sky (not in picture). Transmisser, space spiral, and caverns for the modular.

Enjoy! BoooM!"

CASIO CZ-101 Digital Phase Distortion Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is a very nice, vintage 1980's Casio CZ-101 keyboard, a cool, smaller version of the Casio CZ-1000/CZ-3000. The keyboard is in great condition electronically with normal usage scuffs.

Used by many famous bands (Erasure, Radiohead among others), it is a digital synth with great programming capabilities and a nice variety of analog-like traits and sounds. It is equipped with a 8-stage envelope design.

It uses Phase Distortion (PD) synthesis for the great sounds, similar to the Yamaha DX synthesizers. It also has four types of vibrato settings, a simple LFO-type section with triangle, square, ramp up or down waveforms as well as rate, depth and delay settings. Four Portamento adds classic glide effect.

It has oscillators with 4-note polyphony, a built-in noise and ring modulation and is MIDI equipped with 4 monophonic multitimbral parts.

You can create lots of new sounds, notably percussive sounds. Great for standard stage/studio work, the synth is very cool strapped as a guitar (it is also battery operated) for a stand-up stage performances.

The synth is in excellent working condition with all keys and functions operating correctly.

Sorry, my niece model and the strap do not come with the synth. :( :( "

Audio Damage Phosphor 2 - alphaSyntauri Based iPad Synth Now Available

Now available on iTunes.

You can find two video demos of Audio Damage's Phosphor 2 just posted here.

Details follow:

"Phosphor is an unique instrument modeled on the alphaSyntauri, a vintage digital additive synth from the early 80s. The original alphaSyntauri required an Apple //e to operate, but we've gone ahead and eliminated the middle-man, and now you can have this classic digital synth in your iOS device, no 5.25" floppy drive necessary!

Featuring two additive oscillators (with the original 16 partial complement of the alphaSyntauri, or optionally with 32 or 64 partials), each with its own amp envelope, Phosphor's topology closely follows the alphaSyntauri, while adding many modern features such as full velocity control, a much more extensive modulation routing system, tempo synced LFOs, a pair of delays, and two monophonic modes. The noise and oscillators are able to work in the original alphaSyntauri "low-resolution" modes, or can be run in modern high-resolutions. Phosphor can accurately model the original sounds of the alphaSyntauri, yet still provide new paths for sonic exploration.


• Two complete oscillator/envelope sections modeled on the original topology of the alphaSyntauri.

• Each set of partials can run in "lo-fi" mode, emulating the gritty digital voicing of original, or in a modern mode for alias-free sines.

• The noise can be either "lo-fi" digital shift-register noise per the original, or modern white noise.

• Two complete delay sections with LP/HP filtering and cross-feedback.

• Two tempo-syncable LFOs with multiple modulation destinations.

• A large complement of presets included that show off the extensive sound generating capabilities of Phosphor, including some famous alphaSyntauri presets directly ported from the original.

• XML preset system, with copy-to-clipboard, for sharing presets in forums and with your friends.

• AudioUnits V3 version for use in all AUv3 hosts, like AudioBus 3, AUM, BeatMaker 3, Cubasis 2, GarageBand, etc.

• Standalone version (with full single-panel UI) with Inter-App Audio and BlueTooth MIDI capability.

• iPhone version coming soon!"

The Eternal Expanse

Published on Jul 31, 2017 davidryle

"Trying my hand at building choir sounds with various synthesizers.

The opening part is a JV-1080 mellotron choir. Then I built a soprano 'banshee' style choral sound with heavily modulated vco's from the Mos Lab 901 trio into the 904-A filter, an Encore frequency shifter and Behringer DD400 delay.

I introduce some noise from the Sputnik WCRS and a Q110. The drone synth part is next from the Prophet '08 with a stacked fast eighth note pattern in the background. Then I played the chord progression from the System 8 as a controller to the OB-6 and JV-1080. The melody over the top is the Deepmind 12 and Erebus.

Finally I bring up the last chorus part from the 5U modular. This is formed from a pair of Q960 step sequencers playing two patterns of three vco's each through a Moogah SEM filter. It is sent to a Modcan 73B dual delay in flange/chorus mode modulated by a Yusynth quadrature LFO. The audio signal from the filter is routed through the Strymon Blue Sky reverb in mod/plate mode before going to the delay.
The loud boom is the Waldorf MicroQ."

The knobs I used were from Mammoth Electronics, they come in many different colors and only cost $0.80 each. The straw was from McDonnald's and was free.

"The 8S is an 8 step sequencer in 8 HP with control over parameters of the sequence as reset, hold, random step and direction. It’s been designed to work with clock related signals like triggers or gates but any type of CV signals can be used at its inputs. The output signal path is completely analog and its range can be set as unipolar (0 to +5 volts) or bipolar (-5 to +5 volts) via jumper on the back.

Technical specifications:

• 8HP

Korg MS-10 Vintage Monophonic Analog Synthesizer SN 134653

via this auction

"The labels look mostly in good shape and only a couple of letters look dinged. There is a screw missing on the left side panel(pictured). The previous owner might've removed it because that whole looks like there was a crack that was repaired. A couple of dings and scratches on the body but overall good for its age. This is the version that has the momentary button under the mod wheel.

This synth is loud! It's a one oscillator synth but the triangle and saw can really shake a room. I didn't list as used because functionally the pulse waveform and the lowpass filter need work.

When PW/PWM is set all the way to the left it sounds fine but as you start turning the knob clockwise the pulse wave gets a little dusty sounding.

When you set the cutoff and peak on filter all the way to 10 it gets a little quiet. If cutoff is set below peak it's pretty normal sounding. Someone told me deoxit might be all those pots need but I will leave it to an expert."

I wasn't thinking of anything in particular when I created this, but afterward I thought it sounded like a cross between Deep Red (Goblin), Chase (Moroder) and Halloween III (Carpenter/Howarth).

In the beginning there was noise

Structured noise

In time, from noise came individual sine waves.

Some of these sine waves were louder, others quite.

Some had low frequencies others frequencies were high.

The sine waves grouped together in various amplitudes and frequencies.

Together they created fundamentals, then formed partials, overtones and harmonics.

modular synthesizer vs pot lid ambient session (mutable instrument ears, rings)

Published on Jul 29, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Yes, you read the title correct.. I connected a pot lid to my modular system, cookin' up some ambient tunes :)

Really, I have no idea what I am doing but it is great fun :D I recently got the Mutable Instruments ears, and also today bought a KORG CM-200 contact microphone to be able to add acoustic elements and textures for processing in the modular.. now this calls for a pot session right ? :)

Ears gets the audio signal from the CM200 microphone, which in turn sends audio to the MI rings, strumming is being done on a random fashion with the 2hp Turing Maching using a clock in maths.

1v/Oct in on the RIngs is quantized with the penrose, which has LFO in from the tides, on a slow rate.

/Odd/ channels from rings goes straight out to 1U mixer mixer, the other /Even/ goes into the morphagene which is in sound on sound mode and plays back everything it hears in reverse .. + some glitchy stuff.

Braids soundsource (drone) Maths is controlling the filter on the uVCF which the braids goes into.. . and the Ripples filter is in serial controlled by the second maths channel plus retriggered by the gate out from MI ears.

everything then goes into the EQD pedals + Keeley engineering reverb for FX treatment.

Oh, and at 03.55 I am humming/singing one note drones into the pot lid (now there is a sentence you don't read that often) .. none of the camera angles captured it, but this is what you hear if the sound sources might be a bit confusing :)

Booom, and be careful the track is very dynamic, listen to it on moderate volume the first time.. :)"

Thursdacid - a few Cirklon patterns for the Eurorack

"I've been ill with a virus this weekend, so rather than plan a complex patch, I decided to just punch a few patterns into the Cirklon and make some acid breaks with the CV BOB sequencing the Eurorack.

This video pretty much has the patterns playing back. Everything in this video is sequenced by the Cirklon and the Euro is doing all the synthesis. The Cirklon is also manually sending via MIDI to a reverb and a delay in my DAW."

DSI Prophet Rev 2 - "Teme 2"

Published on Jul 28, 2017 Jae Ryan

"I haven't uploaded any live synth jams in ages and initially when I sat down I was going to make a video of some of my personal patches on the Rev 2 since it is partially to blame for me not getting anything 'done'.

I wanted to experiment with the split mode since it was something I had'n explored yet and made a couple unison patches to try it out. Both of these (as vanilla as they are) were made from scratch. I didn't use any eternal processing except limiting which I applied in Cubase. All the effects are from the Rev 2.

This may be my favourite synth of all time & I love it so much that I'm actually considering selling my Prophet 6 since this has 61 keys and in my opinion sounds closer to the Prophet 5 than the 6 does. Sure, its not quite as large sounding but having so much modulation make's it pretty easy to make a patch sound alive and thats something I'm very fond of.

This was sloppy & quick but I felt I had to share something. I really really really love this synth and I hope that they're some other users out there that might be interested in some of the patches I've made. I'll definitely send them out to people for free once I make a video to showcase them! Have a great weekend"

Amalgame Multi-Effect Plugin - Streamlined Complex Signal Processor

This one was sent my way via Atomic Shadow.

"Amalgame is a multi-effect plugin that aims to streamline the creation of complex signal processing chains. Offering an intuitive workflow with all the functions easily accessible and logically laid out, Amalgame makes mutating sounds beyond recognition a breeze.

Amalgame provides a library of 23 effects ranging from bread and butter filters and delays to more esoteric and glitchy processors, which are always accessible and ready to be dropped on 6 XY pads where their key parameters are mapped to each axis.

The X and Y parameters of each pad can be sequenced from within the plugin with independent rate and length for each sequence giving you the opportunity to create insanely complex modulations in a few clicks.

And for an instant creativity boost, a versatile randomizer lets you alter the parameters, sequences and effect selections of any slot, or even regenerate the whole processing chain at the press of a button."

Korg MS-20 mini Semi-Modular Monophonic Synthesizer with Decksaver Cover

via this auction

"This Korg MS-20 mini is in excellent condition and sounds absolutely stunning! It was my first synthesizer and truly taught me the wonders of analog synthesis with its semi-modular patchbay. This mono synth is great for leads, excels at bass, makes very interesting ambient sounds, and has killer white noise. The filters sound uniquely Korg, both HF and LF having resonance of their own to push the limits of sound design. The keys themselves have seen little play and are in fantastic shape as I either sequenced this machine via Ableton Live over USB or from my Analog Four via CV.

As much as I love this synthesizer, it hasn't really been a part of my workflow since purchasing an Analog Four, Moog Minitaur, and Korg Minilogue. Hate to see this thing not being used so selling to someone who will give this synth the love it deserves. Comes with original box, power supply, 10 patch cables, and 1/8 inch TRS to 1/4 inch TRS cable."

"Here's a first look at the production ready prototype of our new sequencer MITØ. Available for preorder now!"

via Møffenzeef Mødular

"MITØ (derived frøm "mitøsis") is a 6 channel trigger sequencer that specializes in swingin', divide'n, n' pølyrhythm'n. With the turn øf a knøb, the user can select which divisiøn øf the incøming cløck (BANG!) is øutput frøm the cørrespønding jack (all the way left: divide by 16, all the way right: divide by 1). Each channel is equipped with it's øwn mute switch, alløwing the user tø turn each individual sequence øn and øff while øther channels keep chuggin' and cløckin' aløng. Gløbal swing can be cøntrølled with the amøeba knøb in the tøp right hand cørner øf the mødule. Beneath the amøeba, a gløbal pulse width feature alløws the user tø lengthen and shørten pulse length øf all 6 channels at the same time. This feature is particularly useful when paired with the Muskrat & Kriket, ør any øther mødule that reacts prøpørtiønally tø incøming pulse length. Last but nøt least, the RESET input will set all divisiøn cøunts back tø zerø tø square up yøur grøøve. Each channel will be held HIGH as løng as the incøming vøltage is HIGH. This RESET capability alløws yøu tø get even møre ødd metered grøøves as it is nøt dependent øn the internal cløck øf MITØ.

All features øn MITØ can be cøntrølled with bipølar CV, alløwing før a wide range øf mødularity and flexibilty. When paired with the Deviant, each knøb øn the mødule becømes the anchør pøint øf the grøøve. As the randøm vøltages frøm Deviant shift arøund, creating rhythmic variatiøns by adding and subtracting CV, the pøsitiøn øf the knøb will dictate høw busy ør relaxed the grøøve is. Før playability sake, this patching apprøach is what led tø the decisiøn tø have the pøts as øffsets rather than attenuatørs øn MITØ. Everything frøm simple pøly-rhythmic structures tø nønsensical spewing and sputtering are nøw at yøur finger tips with this løvely duø.

Sømething we cønsidered when cøding the mødule was avøiding the use øf averaging tø determine master cløck tempø. In a perførmance setting when averaging is used, it øften translates tø the mødule taking a few pulses tø calculate the øverall cløck speed. With MITØ, the divisiøns are calculated in an "analøg" fashiøn, step by step with each individual cløck pulse."
