Mutable Instruments Ambika Improv

Published on Feb 15, 2017 Jyoti Mishra

"I recently bought an Ambika and haven't had much time to play around with it. But I made this very epic-sounding pad so I thought I'd do a little improv with it.

You hear the bare sound at the start and then I switch on the delay and reverb, both courtesy of my mixer, a Behringer X32.


Frostwave Space Beam

Published on Feb 15, 2017 Brian Comnes

via this auction

"One used Frostwave Space Beam, spatial sensing oscillator with control outputs. A theremin like device it uses the distance of your hand to raise or lower pitch. Best of all is that it also puts out control voltage (CV) for pitch and gate. Pitch CV ranges from 0-10 volts continuous and the gate CV goes from 0-8 volts. You can select the wave form from sine to triangle to square wave. You can set the response time from fast to slow with glide switch and also the range of the frequencies from low to high. See the short video about this unit for more info.

This is a rare device out of production."

SUIKO ST10 Japanese Synth

via this auction

"Super rare SUIKO ST-10 synthesizer and sequencer.

Monophonic synthesizer with highly unusual data cassette drive sequencer.

You can use the data cassette (like an Apple II or Commodore 64!) to save sequences, and you can change the sound settings in real time as the sound plays back. Includes a new cassette for you to record your sequences to.

I included a SONY Car Cassette to Aux Adapter so you can mess with the sequencer by playing white noise, synth tones, etc through it to data bend the cassette drive. You can also use pre-recorded cassettes to mess with the sequencer. Tons of fun!

There is also a built in digital sequencer with built in memory.

Has three basic sounds that can be modified. You can use the pitch knob to do some interesting pitch bend effects as you play. There is a setting to control the decay of the note as well.

Keyboard is meant for traditional Japanese music, so the layout of the keys is in traditional Japanese scale.

Could also be used for microtonal music, as there is a slider that can shift the pitch up in a 1/4 tone increment.

Everything has been fully tested and works, except for one switch that is stuck. This switch is meant to flat or sharp one note in the scale to slightly modify the scale. This is a minor feature and doesn't effect the operation of the rest of the keyboard. Likely an easy fix."

VGM #100: Stickerbush Symphony (Donkey Kong Country 2) Progessive Synth-Rock Cover

"I feel like we have been here before....

I hope you enjoy it. I really wanted to take a trip back to the very first VGM I did here on the channel, and do something different with it. This isn't meant to replace my first cover, but is simply another take on one of my favorite game songs. I hope you enjoy it!"

Arturia DrumBrute, MiniBrute, Keystep, Korg Electribe synthesizer jam, Roland Chorus Echo tape delay

Published on Feb 15, 2017 Expanding Sound

"This was a fun little jam to experiment with. It features an Arturia DrumBrute, MiniBrute, Keystep, and Korg Electribe A MKII, which is a dual monosynth sequencer with effects. I wanted to try some of the individual outputs on the DrumBrute, so I used my Roland Chorus Echo tape delay on the snare and kick outputs. The DrumBrute's sync out is going to the Keystep's sync in, and the Keystep is controlling the MiniBrute via CV pitch and gate. The Electribe was purposefully left out of the sync loop, as I was curious how similar the clocks are between hardware. No unit drifted in tempo from each other, so I was very pleased with the result. Check it out!"

Seekers? Rare SKY Soundlab VoiceSpectra VOCODER SN AAB003898

via this auction

OK, here's an interesting find. If you take a look at this post from 2012, you will see the same vocoder branded Seekers. You'll also find a demo video of it.

A funny side note: Some of you that followed the site early on may have remembered a gentleman by the name of Elhardt. He was a bit of a prankster who would release images of new product teasers. One was the Bahn Sage back in 2005, and his follow-up was the Seekers SMS 2000. People caught on to him with the Sage, so he likely went with Seekers as an unknown but verifiable brand, that or he just came up with the name by sheer coincidence.

Regal Rhythm RE 175 SN 2446

via this auction

I believe this is the first post to feature Regal on the site. Just when you think you've seen it all, something like this pops up. Curious if Moby owns one.

"Rare, vintage drum machine! Cool little rhythm box, plugs into AC and out with a 1/4" jack and rock your rhythm section! The knob on the left turns it on and turns the temp up, right knob is volume. 6 rhythms, waltz, jazz, western, rock, Latin, and march. Supports a foot switch (not included, but probably any standard foot switch will work. Comes with a sticker on top that says 'try a little tenderness.'"

Oberheim OB-8 w/ MIDI

via this auction

"Oberheim OB 8 Analog 8 voice 61 key polysynth early MIDI in thru out 120 patch memory, all 8 voices work all 61 keys work no dead keys/voices. Dual VCOs are mixable 2 per voice saw- pulse- triangle. ADSR envelopes for the VCA and VCF VCF has resonant and switchable 2 or 4 pole, also great 8 note arpeggiator. This OB 8 has the page 2 functions I believe all the original patches are still loaded in this OB 8. All the controls function and there are no broken or missing knobs the dual pitch/modulation bender works great. This is one of the vintage Oberheims manufactured before Gibson took over around 1985 or so."

"Making a beat from scratch on the Behringer Deepmind 12 synth. I've recorded the whole thing using Ableton Live. All sounds are directly from the Deepmind 12 including drums, effects, etc. I start off with simple synthesized percussion then add a verse and chorus and layer pads, basses, leads and rhodes while browsing presets."

Improvisation for Modular & Electric Piano

Published on Feb 15, 2017 rupertlally

"A short improvisation, using the sample and hold on the Harvestman Polivoks Modulator to provide some slowly changing pitch cv to 3 modules: Braids, Tides and the Leaf Audio NBTA, whose envelopes are slowly being triggered from the 4MS QCD. The mix is sent through the Intellijel Rainmaker and Clouds.
I'm improvising along with the modular using the Nord Electro 2."
