Soulsby Oscitron

Published on Feb 7, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The Oscitron is an 8-bit wavetable oscillator for Eurorack. It is based around the Atmegatron audio engine but also has a lot of different features, which make it more suited to the modular environment. One of the key differences is the ability to capture wavetables via an audio input. There is also a “continuous capture” mode which produces vocoder-style effects. The resolution of the audio engine can be altered from the Atmegatron’s 32 sample wavetables, down to 16 and up to 128 samples, creating radically different timbres."

The Origin of the Moog Trademark Logo

via @moogmusicinc

"This month in 1964, the iconic Moog trademark logo was introduced."

It reads:

“This year, the R.A. Moog Co. begins its second decade of service to musicians, enxperimenters, and hobbyists. As a result of the first decade’s accomplishments, the R.A. Moog Co. is now regarded as a leader in the field of electronic music instrumentation.

A new trademark has been created to graphically symbolize the concepts upon which R.A. Moog products and services are based. the musical note instantly evoke the feeling of music, while the surrounding circle, open at the top, creates a sense of unity and movement. The trademark is simple enough to be instantly recognizable, and tasteful enough to complement the appearance of the finest electronic musical equipment. As such, this trademark will now be used to identify all R.A. Moog products.


Robert A. Moog”

Note the logo came a decade after Bob Moog started. Also note the statement calls out experimenters. Musicians and hobbyists are expected, but ezperimenters? Pretty cool when you think about it.

"The Grand Terminal, from, is a multifunctional dual envelope (doubling as a band limited oscillator), dual filter, and FX processor for Eurorack synthesizers. The Filter types include Ladder, Diode, Low Pass Gate, State Variable and Comb which can be used as a stereo mixer, dual mono, or in serial. The envelopes are Attack-Decay or Attack-Release style, and can be looping to make LFOs or band limited oscillators. When an envelope is looping, the CV input responds to 1v/Oct signals. Also included is the "Cabin Pressure," which is a multi-FX unit that can produce various stereo reverbs, delays and chorus. A Stereo headphone output and a mono modular level output are both present for easy monitoring and recording."

Roland Jupiter-6 Synthesizer Filter VCF Build - Demo 01

Published on Feb 7, 2017 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2017

This video demos a Roland Jupiter-6 synthesizer clone filter VCF. This breadboard build took two days, and for me is the largest one I've built yet. Does this circuit sound as good as the original? You be the judge. Anyway, I really wanted to hear what it sounded like before deciding about building my own module.

I came across schematics for the Roland Jupiter-6 at They actually sell completed modules and PCBs, however they seem to be perpetually out of stock. This will be a nice companion multi-mode filter to go next to my SEM module. IMHO the SEM sounds buttery and creamy, and the Jupiter-6 is a complete savage with outrageous low end."


Powertran Transcendent 2000

via this auction

"This one is as mint as you are likely to ever find. Works perfect, sounds amazing with a resonance that should have a warning on it - very powerful resonance on the tran 2000 filter. Wood work is in really good condition and all dials/sliders work as they should."

SDS_VCO+Reflex LiveLoop

Published on Feb 7, 2017 freshnelly

"This video was created during testing of the prototype SDS_VCO (3D printed black 3HP thing) connected to a Reflex for the first time. The sound from 1 little VCO is great when feeding a synced delay!

Two sequencers are in play, the ModEM-1 as a sequencer/clock source feeding the MI Frames, then CV added to the ModEM-1 sequence. All of the Frame's outputs are offset from a 10V LFO slowly (50 seconds) cycling a sine wave.

The SDS_VCO, coming soon, is set to use the MOD input to select 16 different waveforms (13 fixed + 3 custom) giving the mix a wide range of ever changing timbres. The bottom Wave knob can offset by 16. Also the CV input is set to quantize to one of the16 scales available.

I listened to this patch for hours!"

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 SN 4045

via this auction, also on Reverb.

"This is a Rev 3.3 version with no midi (serial number #1000-4045). It's in great shape and fully functional. The only issue is the Freq1 knob for Osc1 doesn't work well, it will turn if you put the knob down a bit while turning. Probably just needs a simple reconnection/cleaning. Also a few of the keys will double trigger if you leave the keyboard sitting unplayed for too long, but it plays fine the more you use it. So it could probably use a little servicing, but otherwise everything else is working great. The Prophet 5 has a huge warm analog tone, maybe the most classic of all the polysynths. A must have for any serious synth collection. Cosmetically it does have some signs of use but overall I would say it's in great shape."

Sequential Circuits Pro One SN 3142

via this auction, also on Reverb.

"This has the more desirable J-wire keyboard (serial number #100-3142). It's in nice shape and working great. The only thing not working is the Noise knob in the mixer section. Everythign else is working, but in general it could use a servicing/tune-up. All the keys do trigger currently but the keyboard is clacky, so a rebushing would make it play smoothly. Some of the switches are dirty and knobs are scratchy. Otherwise it looks to be working as it should, and has a great sound. The Pro One is almost like a monophonic Prophet 5 but with a few extra features like the sequencer, arpeggiator and mod section."

Multivox MX8100 Control Voltage Music Sequencer

via this auction

"For sale is a Multivox MX8100 control voltage sequencer. This unit is old store stock. I tested it with an Arturia MiniBrute using the linear CV out and it works. All buttons and switches are intact and working. Couldn't find the box or owners manual. It is in good cosmetic condition with a few scratches. Dates back to the late 70s or early 80s. This unit does not make sounds!"
