Sequential Circuits Pro One With Kenton Pro Solo Mk II CV To MIDI Converter

via this auction

"Excellent condition Pro One J Wire version. This was recently calibrated. I am including the Kenton Pro Solo MK II cv to midi converter, which sells for 250. Everything works great. I'm sad to let this one go, but I can't justify keeping it any longer. See the attached YouTube video where I show that keys/knobs/switches work as they should. There are a few dings in the wooden end cheeks, but it's nearly flawless."

Delptronics LBD-2E Analog Drums + LBD-2X Expander

Published on Mar 9, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The LDB-2e 'Little Drummer Boy' analog drums eurorack module is an update to our popular LDB-1e module. It is 6 HP (only 2HP wider) and now includes the the individual volume controls and output jacks functionality of the old expansion module. The LDB-2x expansion module is totally new and gives you knob and CV control of the pitch of every drum, and the decay of the kick and open hi-hat.The module uses totally analog circuitry, not samples. Our goal was to recreate the warm sounds of the classic analog drum machines of the 80's, like the Roland TR-606 and TR-808. The circuitry of the LDB-2e uses the same principals as the classics and produces a very similar sound."

Voltage Connect Conference 2017 w/ DSI, Suzanne Ciani, Jordan Rudess, David Friend, and More

via @dsiSequential

"Join Dave Smith & other synth designers @BerkleeCollege Voltage Connect Conference 2017 - More details at"

"The Electronic Production and Design Department at Berklee is proud to present the Voltage Connect Conference, which will be held on March 10 and 11, 2017. The conference is themed “Pioneers, Players, Thinkers, Purveyors” and will examine the development and direction of electronic instruments, from early commercial synthesizers in the 1970s to the present and beyond. The conference connects researchers, established and emerging companies, and performers who are committed to the development and use of electronic instruments.

Since the first commercial release of synthesizers, we’ve seen an enormous change in what an electronic instrument actually is, from analog to digital, hardware to software, and back again, all driven by technological innovation and imagination. This two-day conference will consist of panel discussions, presentations, technology demos, and performances that explore how electronic instruments are developed and used. A product expo will run concurrently with the conference proceedings.

The conference will feature keynote performers Jordan Rudess, keyboardist of prog rock band Dream Theater, and electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani.

Keynote speakers for the conference will be David Friend, cofounder of the ARP Instruments company; Marcus Ryle, president of Line 6; and Daniel Haver, CEO of Native Instruments."

"Wrote this little tune for my friend SAI aka var. Was inspired by a wicked ravey chord line and tried to replicate a similar sound on Analog Four. Didn't turn out quite as nice as the original MC-909 sound, but I think it works in the context of this little beat :)

Cheers var/SAI !"

New $400 Behringer Minimoog Model D - Renders, Initial Specs, Poly Chain up to 16 Note Polyphony

This one in via Soviet Space Child. Uli Behringer mentioned the possibility of a Minimoog clone coming from Behringer in this previous post. We now have renders and the following details:

"This is a first draft of our 'D' Synth with a proposed feature set below.

Our goal is to design in a Poly Chain feature that allows combining up to 16 synths through Midi.

Depending on the feedback we will then decide if we move further and build a first prototype.

Our targeted retail price is around US$ 400.

"This is a project I wanted to do since I got the Deepmind 12, make and entire EP with nothing but the Deepmind and my DAW Reason 7. Every single sound you hear on this EP comes from the deepmind, all the drums were sounds sampled into Kong Drum computer in Reason with some processing to obtain the right tone and levels, the only effects outside of the Deepmind are the Echo delay inside of Reason, every other effect you hear is from the Deepmind.

Schippmann Ebbe Und Flut Dual Analog Filter

via this auction

"Available here is the exquisite Schippmann Ebbe Und Flut dual analog rack filter/effects processor/channel strip in excellent condition. This is hands down the finest analog filter money can buy (take it from me - I've owned many different kinds!). This thing is of the highest build quality, and mind blowing as far as audio quality. Controlling it standalone from the front panel is more than satisfying but most of it's functions are also present as rear panel jacks. So it can have a very modular friendly feel as well."

Newtonian Random Rhythms

"Rocky Mountain Synth Meetup Lightning Patch Walkthroughs

Newtonian Random Rhythms

This patch is based around the [ADDAC] 503 Marble Physics module which is a CV generator based on the mechanics behavior of a marble on a tray.

You can, by voltage control, tilt the plane or bump the marble with a certain strength, which will cause it to roll and bounce on elastic walls.

The module will output the object's XY position or velocity and you can control other physical parameters, like the walls' elasticity or the strength of a bump. When the marble hits walls the bounce outputs a trigger.

I am using the trigger out to randomize patterns in the Malekko Varigate8 in Random mode which seeds logical gates into the patterns.

I am using a 4ms Quad Clock Distributor module to control the Varigate8+ clock and using a divide by 16 to clock the marble physics bump feature to initiate bounce output.

The elasticity of the walls is being controlled by bipolar out of Noise Engineering SincIter which is being driven by the Voltage Block slaved to the Varigate8+.

The Freeze of Random seeding is controlled by the envelope out from SSF Entity (which is also receiving randomized trigs from the Varigate8+) module via an envelope follower.

The Xaoc Devices Batumi is controlling various parameters of the Marbe Physics module along with controlling the WMD Performance Mixer Volume/Pan level with help from the 4ms Pingable LFO which is slaved to the 4ms QCD."
