GEOSynths - Nemesis Delay - Source Audio w/ Behringer DeepMind12

Published on Feb 26, 2017 GEOSynths

"With a similar form factor to Strymon DIG and other pedals by them, but with features you'd find on more expensive delays, the Nemesis Delay by Source Audio is an excellent pedal. With Stereo ins and outs, line level and lots of algorithms, this really is one of the best you can buy."

Oberheim DSX SN A33918

via this auction

"The DSX is a polyphonic sequencer made to interface over the Oberheim Parallel Buss with OB series synthesizers and DMX drum machines, however it can also be used with any CV/Gate equipped synth. It features 10 tracks with a 6,000 note capacity. In addition to the Oberheim Parallel Buss output, the DSX offers Clock in/out, 8 CV/Gate outputs as mentioned above, Tape Sync in/out, and Cassette Memory in/out.

It includes the latest OS (v3.04), and all aspects I can test work perfectly; the only thing I cannot test is the Parallel Bus connection to an Oberheim keyboard, as I don't have an Oberheim keyboard to test with, nor do I have the cable itself. The power cable is included.

Cosmetically, there are a few superficial scratches, a discoloration and 2 holes on the left end cheek from a previous owner who had mounted something on there, and some mild screw corrosion on the back panel. Overall it is in excellent shape for an item of its age.

There is now a software program available called DSX Hack (Google "DSX Hack" and you will find it) to assist in programming the DSX using MIDI files - I am the author of this program, and this is the device used in the development of the software (I have another DSX as well). Using DSX Hack, this becomes an easy to program, awesome 8 channel CV/Gate sequencer!! I will throw in a free copy of DSX Hack ($40 value) as well - once the sale is complete and you receive the item and confirm all is well, I will email you registration details for the software."

1973 Multivox MX-880

via this auction

"This synth is like a suped-up Roland SH-2000 preset, mono synth.

Works great. Keys are yellowed. Includes the extremely rare Multivox brass case.

The Multivox MX-880 has almost exactly the same features and voices as the Roland SH-2000:
- Touch Volume (Off/On)
- Touch Wow (Off/On)
- Touch Growl (Off/On)
- Touch Vibrato (Off/On)
- Touch Pitch Bend (Up/Off/Down)
- Repeat (Off/On)
- Sustain Long (Off/On)
- Hold (Off/On)
- Easy Tuning knob
- Touch Sensitivity knob
- Volume slider
- Modulation Speed slider
- Modulation (amount) slider
- Cutoff Frequency slider
- Resonance slider
- Portamento Speed slider
- Portamento (Touch/Off/On)
- Random Note generator (LFO Trigger/Off/Random Trigger)
- Transpose (Low/Normal/High)

But, additional the second ocillator is what makes this synth different. You choose any frequency within the range (3rd, 5th, 6th, octave or any frequency in between) or select Unison for a thick single notes.

Voices: Tuba, Trombone, French Horn, Trumpet, Saxophone, Clarinet, Accordion, Bassoon, Oboe, Flute, Song Whistle, Singing Voice, Cello, Violin, Bass Guitar, Hawaiian Guitar, Banjo, Fuzz Guitar 1, Fuzz Guitar 2, Harpsichord, Piano, Xylophone, Vibraphone, Percolate (called Pop Corn on Roland SH-2000), Space Reed, Outer Space (called Planet on Roland SH-2000), Frogman, Alley Cat (called Funny Cat on Roland SH-2000), Ring Modulator (may be the same as Growl Wow on Roland SH-2000), Wind.

Here's a video of the MX-2000 I sold a while ago. The MX-880 sounds and looks exactly the same except Multivox covered up the MX-2000 with an MX-880 sticker:" [previously posted here]

I don't think I realized there were early models with different style graphics. Curious if featured/functionality differed and if so, whether these early models were upgradable. If you know, feel free to comment.

Doepfer MOGLI Midi Glove (Rare - Vintage)

Published on Feb 19, 2017 studentsmusic

"Mogli was a nice attempt (Doepfer cooperated with the Band Kraftwerk on this) in 1993, to control MIDI via a Nintendo game controller glove. Probably only about 350 were built because the glove went out of Nintendo-production. So here´s a rare basic demonstration how it works.

Semi-Fun factor (realized it afterwards):
sorry for associating my glovehand going up with political implications plus darth worries i´m somewhat a liberal democrat :-)"

Roland Cloud Anthology 1987 versus Roland D50

Published on Feb 26, 2017 Woody Piano Shack

"Roland have at last released an official VST plugin of their legendary Roland D-50 synthesizer. Mysteriously they call it Anthology 1987, with no mention of the synth that's it based on. I have some theories about that... Anyway, in this video I play some favorite presets on the hardware and virtual instruments for a comparison of the sounds."

This synth is great and Ican't wait to dig a little deeper into it... Its non classic architecture makes it a perfect alternative to all the vco/vcf/adsr/vca synths out there."
