Accelerator demo of the string filter - In the halls of empty hearts

Published on Jan 21, 2017 MIDERA

"In this demo of the Radikal Technologies Accelerator, no oscillator is being activated! The sound is being generated simply from the string filter. I have filter 1 feeding into filter 2, which then allows the activation of the string filter. Noise is also being routed in, along with its filter to create this sound.

Editing was made easier using the iPad and Midi Designer Pro 2!"

Published on Jan 21, 2017 100 Things I Do

"I'm only just starting to learn to play the WX 7 so its all still quite rudimentary what I can play so far. I was looking for some extra range in how I can control sound and the breath control of the WX 7 seemed to be an interesting addition to the studio. An added benefit is also when you take your notes out of a normal keyboard sequence it stops you defaulting to the same old scales and hand placements :D"

In addition to giving things away, Moog is also paying tribute to the musicians and legends lost in 2016. See the NAMM booth video from Sonicstate here.

Below are some of the tributes from Moog's twitter feed. CatSynth also has a small write-up here.


Published on Jan 21, 2017 snipz

"I've just got through a bout of vestibular neuritis, an infection of the inner ear. Although not painful I could hardly move about and if I did I felt really sick and as if I was going to fall over. The doctors gave me Cinnarizine, an anti nausea drug that left me dozy and really spaced out.

This is a response to that feeling. I started the bass line prior to falling ill, everything else came together slowly during the week I was mostly horizontal...leaving me time to think about the track and then putting it together when I felt more industrious."

Model D/MS-20/707 - "Inauguration Theme"

Published on Jan 20, 2017 Jae Ryan

"I had intended to make a cooler jam tonight but due to technical difficulties just ended up making this little ditty! It's real sloppy and first take. It's also the first YouTube thing I've done with my new Model D reissue, though it doesn't do it much justice! I'll do something more dynamic soon!

MS-20 bass is running through the UAD Space Echo and being synced by the rim from the 707!

Moog "lead" is running through UAD Lexicon 224 with extremely long tails and some pitch shifting.

707 is running through UAD Space Echo and also being sent lightly to the 224 that the Moog is sent to.

As many things I do often are, this is slightly inspired by John Carpenter. I wanted to try something with those semi-tone walks that take the song out of or transpose the key. I will probable do something more complete with that theory eventually, but I wanted to at least capture some sort of moment tonight!"

Toa Mata Band - Episode#5 [The man & the machines]

Published on Jan 21, 2017 Opificio Sonico

Some gear/synth spotting: Soundmachines NS1nanosynth, EHX MINI-SYNTHESIZER, Moog Animoog (not sure what the second app is), Boss Hand Clapper, and Novation Launchpad.

"I was 11 when during a Sunday afternoon of 1978 Kraftwerk appeared for the first time in an Italian TV show. For me it was a dazzling discovery, one that has changed my life , so I went into my room , took a tape and recorded the audio from the tv speaker!! I still keep that precious recording and I've played it again and again for a long time.

Since that day I was waiting the time when the robots make a real functioning band and play music live, and nowdays a lot of music robots around the world are growing up, giving new ideas and creative communication to the music.
This is my inspiration to this Kraftwerk 's tribute, regarding their vision of the future and to their brilliant approaching to the music with a touch of irony that even now is still influencing a thousand of music producers around the world.

My video contribution from Toa Mata Band (a tiny orchestra of Lego® robots driven by Arduino®) represents a version of the iconic tune 'The robots' using nowdays open-source technologies, microcontrollers, 3D printer, robot arm, music DAW, smarthphones, pocket synthesizers* and more... trying to give a new way to read the message we got from them 40 years ago.

Hoping you'll enjoy it, I want thank you for watching!

Korg Electribe 2 Tutorial + Jam: Kick and Snare / Bass on one track

Published on Jan 21, 2017 mishpult

"This video explains a workaround for Korg Electribe 2 groovebox that achieves kick and snare/tom/base sounds on one track. Originally demonstrated on the Korg EMX by LousyFacelift on his YouTube channel [below] The result is slightly different with the E2, but nevertheless it's a neat trick in the battle for more polyphony on this machine. Enjoy!"

Custom Colored Roland Juno 106 Vintage Keyboard Synthesizer w/Blue Meanie Mod

Custom colored highlights & buttons.

via this auction

"Up for sale is this Roland Juno 106 Synthesizer in amazing condition.

Two slight details to mention. The 4th F# key is responsive to slightly stronger pressure than all other keys but it's not a big problem and does not affect overall functionality.

The second detail is that, like with many many other Junos, the Chorus is very ( and I do mean very) slightly noisy. However, this is not an aesthetically displeasing sound. It sounds like distant ocean waves (it's technically white noise in phase). But this can be easily fixed.

These two details are the only reason why I put this synth under "Good" rather than "Very Good or even "Mint".
Everything else works absolutely perfectly & sounds incredible. Has the Blue Meanie Mod by SynthSpa (Which in no way change the sound of the original Juno, it's just more stable, and looks spanking.)

Below are what the restoration service does:

The keyboard has been totally restored inside & out and comes with the SynthSpa warrantee, all workmanship and chips (that are still manufactured) are covered.


Power PCB rebuilt - Large electro caps replaced, new 3 prong receptacle and new standard IEC power cable.
CPU board rebuilt - Old Battery removed, new removable battery chassis installed with new battery.
Module board rebuilt - 80017a voice chips restored & fully calibrated, comes with theSynthSpa guarantee!
Panel board rebuilt - All sliders removed, rebuilt, de-oxidized, re-soldered, and all new buttons.
Bender board rebuilt, volume & portamento knobs cleaned.
Keys cleaned - surface cleaned, key contacts de-oxidized.
New sounds organized by banks - From the SynthSpa library the 'best-of-the-best'.


Blue lighted bender.
Blue 3mm LEDs.
Blue 2-Digit seven segment display.
Classic cherry custom wood end bells.
Clear coat - To protect your fragile screen print for years to come."

Dave Smith Oberheim OB-6 SN 00125 w/ Custom Wood Side Panels

via this auction

The seller also has alternate wood side panels available here and here.

Fantastic analog sound that you just can’t get anywhere else, with genuine discrete VCOs and a state-variable analog filter, coupled to analog distortion and digital effects, a sequencer and arpeggiator, and a quality keyboard with velocity and pressure sensitivity.

I made new solid wood end-pieces for this synth out of figured maple, dyed black and finished with glossy de-waxed shellac for maximum chatoyance.

The only thing stopping me from describing this synth as “mint” is that it suffered one minor drop from waist height onto carpeting (and my foot). One of the original wood ends cracked, and there are a few small scuffs under the mod wheel housing. (See photo.) The chassis is otherwise unharmed, all controls work and feel like new, and the synth sounds and functions perfectly."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 W/Tauntek Upgrade V3.3

via this auction

"This baby is in very nice shape and working perfectly. It has the Tauntek V10.6 firmware upgrade which adds many midi features..

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 3.3 is capable of taking a MIDI retrofit, (Which this has)."

MOK Waverazor - Oscillator Demo

Published on Jan 21, 2017 MOK

Futuristic Virtual Synth

A demo of the Waverazor oscillator with a 4 part wave slice. All sound in this demo is from one oscillator, with no filters, effects, or modulation engaged. This illustrates some of the extreme complexity that can be achieved with the Waverazor oscillator.

Unleash your dark side with Waverazor—a futuristic synth that gives you the power to splice waveforms into aggressive new sounds. The patent-pending oscillator design utilizes a new form of synthesis to produce biting leads, glitched-out basses, cinematic pads and everything in between. Twist and torture every parameter of sound using a central oscilloscope for precise waveform creation. Morph multiple parameters at once using an array of performance controllers. The collection of included presets provides a launchpad into endless sonic exploration. Waverazor is compatible with AAX/AU/VST on Mac, PC and Linux."
