Octatrack + Analog Four - Paradox (live)

Published on Jan 29, 2017 MrGOFIOvideos

"Another electronic jam on the Elektron machines where I'm playing one pattern on each. As always, I use the octatrack sampler as a drum machine and the Analog four to handle all the melodic lines.
About the experiment, I just can tell it's a 117 bpm track, something from ambient, dub techno and idm music I think."

Frostwave Quad MIDI-CV Plus w/ Joystick Port

via this auction

Only one previously posted here.

"The Frostwave Quad MIDI-CV Plus is a rare rack mount four channel MIDI to analogue CV converter made in Australia by the now defunct Frostwave company. The unit operates in three different modes including as a basic four channel CV converter where it interprets MIDI note number, velocity, and note on/off on any four adjacent MIDI channels and produces corresponding control voltages and gate voltages to control up to four analogue mono Synths.

Switches enable each channel to be either V/Oct (Roland, Moog, Arp etc) or Hz/V (Korg MS series). Gate polarity can be either positive or S-trigger (Moog) type.

There is also DIN sync output for vintage Drum Machines which can be locked to the MIDI tempo..."

HALia by Digitana Electronics In Collaboration with FSOL

via Digitana Electronics

"This product is still in development and the final list of features on production units may change.

Another new project being developed in collaboration with The Future Sound of London. This is an all digital 'pocket' synth using multiple powerful ARM-based microcontrollers. Sonic possibilities are endless. Everything from huge pulsating multi-oscillator drones, FM-synthesis to Buchla-esque noodlings (and everything in between) are all possible. Imagination is the only limit!

Details and audio samples to follow."

Digitana is also working on the SX-1 Stand Alone EMS SYNTHI AKS KS Expander posted here.

Love FSOL.

"Clone" de VCS3

Published on Mar 6, 2016 laurent

"Mon projet avance, il est quasiment 100% fonctionnel. Il reste quelques entrées/sorties et plein de réglages à faire. Mais déjà, j'ai pu valider 'positivement mon alternative à la matrice originale : elle fonctionne bien et sa maintenance sera aussi économique que simple. Dans cette démo, j'utilise le VCS3 comme un classique mono, ce n'est pas vraiment mon but. Je compte utiliser le 'midi' pour transposer de long 'patchs autonomes'."


"My project is progressing, it is almost 100% functional, there are a few inputs / outputs and a lot of adjustments to make but already I was able to positively validate my alternative to the original matrix: it works well and its maintenance will also In this demo, I use the VCS3 as a mono classic, it is not really my goal, I intend to use the 'midi' to transpose long autonomous patches.

Clone de VCS3 Putney

Published on Feb 15, 2016 laurent

"Clone de VCS3 d'après les infos et PCBs de Dereck Revell que je remercie au passage. La matrice n'est pas encore construire donc les routages sont statiques pour le moment.

J'ai pu utiliser quelques composants modernes et d'autres sont faciles à trouver pour des coûts raisonnables.
La matrice ne sera pas 'standard'. Elle utilisera des connecteurs comme contact et sera économique. Elle intègre une interface midi vers CV + Gate, un 'digital LFO' avec des formes d'ondes et un mini séquenceur / arpégiateur...
J'ai encore un bruit sur le "VCA" mais pour le reste je suis déjà assez content du résultat ;)
Prochaines étapes, la menuiserie , une façade digne de ce nom et la matrice ;)"

"L'essentiel est là ;) The Riverkey intègre les fonctionnalités attendues. The Riverkey correspond à mes attentes, c'est un excellent centre de contrôle pour les configurations hétéroclites pleines de CVs, Gates et autres Midi. La commutation des profils permet de passer d'un univers à l'autre et la disponibilité individuelle des séquenceurs et arpégiateurs est plutôt créative. Très plaisant."

Rheyne - Sequenced Jam #18

"Recorded using only Moog and Make Noise synths and modules. All notes are from the synths, no outside MIDI or DAW is being used here. I'm switching between a muted and unmuted state on the Tempi with an offset from the 0-Coast, off camera. Audio is straight from the mixer."

SX-1 Stand Alone EMS SYNTHI AKS KS Expander From Digitana

Update: a disclaimer via the Digitana website worth noting:


All products on this website use Digitana Electronic's original designs, with the exception of the EMS Synthi Hi-FLi re-release, which is built under license from EMS. No use is made of EMS circuits or other intellectual property belonging to EMS. Digitana Electronics is not affiliated to EMS, which is run by Robin Wood.

If you want the real Synthi sound, you still have to go with Analogue Systems which are the only ones making modules under license."

Original post:


"This product is still in development and the final list of features on production units may change.

The SX-1 is a 'stand alone expander' based around the Synthi AKS KS Expander (described elsewhere on this website). It is the result of ongoing collaborations between Digitana Electronics and the legendary UK band The Future Sound of London. It shares all the features of the Synthi AKS KS Expander but requires no Synthi to use it (though one can of course be used with it) and in addition has a host of new features described below.


Each VCO features sine/triangle and square waves and 'wave-folding' (voltage controlled) that adds higher harmonics/distortion to each waveform for amazingly rich and varied timbres, even unfiltered! Each VCO is frequency controllable via CV1 or CV2 which can either be external or MIDI generated from the built in MIDI-CV converter or 'free running'. The frequency range of the VCOs is very wide, from LFO to high frequency audio. Two modulating waveforms are available (speed controlled by the Sample & Hold clock or LFO) via toggle switches to modulate the wave-folding of VCO1 and VCO2. These same waveforms are also available to modulate CV1 and CV2. All VCO1 and VCO2 waveforms are individually available either 'pre' or 'post' the filter/envelope/delay/distortion sections via 3.5 mm jacks.

Great condition. Bought it from Japan in 2005. Works 100%. Cosmetically also in very good condition.

Two minor flaws:
one roller wheel on the case is bent
S&H led doesn't work but circuit is unaffected by this (so S&H works perfect)"

There are a few missing button caps, but the buttons still work great and I can ship extra buttons along with it ( I have a bag with a bunch in there). This has been serviced maybe a year ago. Obviously many marks on the case especially on the wood but other than that this thing is in pretty awesome shape..."

STS Serge Modular System: Creature v2, Mayhem M-Modules

via this auction

"This system has a STS Creature v2 and Mayhem M-Class panels in absolute MINT condition that work perfectly. The M-Modules are housed in a Serge 2.5" shallow boat with the obelisk power distribution to the modules as is standard. It includes a custom built solid oak cabinet that is deep enough to house a PS2A (not included) so it's really a compact powerful Serge "system". The Creature 2 and Mayhem are a great pair and I have a Mayhem and Custom Creature in my main system...wonderful they are.

I am also including a set of Serge Rack Ears, (6) 12" Yellow/Red/Blue, (8) 8" Gray and (1) 5ft Black Pomona Banana patch cords. Also included are two Banana to 1/4" George L cables that I made to connect to other gear. The 5ft Pomona is great if you want to ground the Serge to another system, it being quote long.

Lastly you can see in the pictures there is an additional "audio tail" coming out the back of the boat. This is tapped off the X-Fade and goes to a female 1/8" stereo jack allowing you to have a dual mono 1/8" output as well as the front 1/4" mono audio out. There is a zip tie that holds this firmly to the inside chassis rail just like the power tail on an M-Module. The only truly minuscule blemish is at the bottom edge of the Mayhem were there is a very, very tiny ding less than 1/2 the size of a pin head. It's note worth mentioning but I am just in case as it's pretty hard to see."
