Sequential Circuits Prophet 10 Demo

Published on Mar 11, 2017 100 Things I Do

"A trip to MESS (Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio) last night to tackle the Prophet 10. I owned a Prophet 5 years ago but it just did not work with the music I was making at the time and I was always scared something would go CRACKKKkkk then SMOKE and then very large repair bill... this was before I had the skills myself to repair...but more on this later.

So here it is .. the Prophet 10.. 5 times more and a few little sneaky extras. The most notable for me is the DRONE button and the BASS , MID and TREBLE controls. So dreams of making John Carpenteresque music all night left me and I ended up exploring the drone function.

The lights were out over the Pro10 so I didn't really make that much video but still thought I would share my noodelings.

As to My Prophet 5 , Well I sold it to someone that also did not get along with it and on sold it. Unfortunately he sold it to someone across the other side of the country and by the time it arrived by transport the transformer had come loose and damaged the internals of the synth. I wish I had kept it! I can only hope it was repaired later."

Updated CHEETAH MS6 Analog Polyphoni Synth w/ Individual Outs SN B/032613

via this auction

"The MS6 is a late '80s, 6-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer module from British company Cheetah.

Similar to the Oberheim Matrix-1000, like its American counterpart the MS6 offers a huge amount of preset and user voices. Sounds are broken down in five Preset and two User banks, and are grouped in categories such as Strings, Brass, Bass, Effects and so on.

This is a great-sounding, classic DCO analog synth: plenty of warm strings/pads, acid basses, excellent synth leads, and all kinds of special effects.

Moreover, the MS6 is multi-timbral, and features aftertouch, and is very responsive - that makes it a very expressive instrument for leads.

Update with SIX individual outs, one for each voice, so you can mix each voice to your liking. The original ms6 only has a stereo out so this is an amazing and powerful mod.

Also has been updated with the firmware upgrade which adds:

• Remote control of all tone edit parameters using CC messages, both in tone and performance mode

• Three more DCO shape settings, both for DCO A and B: off, pulse + triangle and pulse + sawtooth. The new pulse shapes can use PWM as well.

• Extended SysEx support: single patch and edit buffer dumps + requests, full dump and status requests.

• Mono mode, per-part, with a choice of always retriggering the envelopes or to not retrigger when playing legato (i.e. pressing a new key before releasing the current one).

• Portamento, per-part, constant-time (0.015 - 18.3 s) or constant-rate (400 - 0.44 semitones/s). Full-time or fingered (i.e., only in mono mode when playing legato).

• Support for bank 7 tones in performances.

• MIDI bank select (CC #0), globally and per-part.

• Program change per-part.

• No more partial drop-outs at bottom C (130.8Hz).

This basically turns it into a whole new synth, and can now be completely controlled from Ableton or a hands on midi controller."

Novation Supernova II Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Supernova is a poly-timbral analogue modelling synth that was released in 2002 and was the grandfather of the Nova, UltraNova and MiniNova. It features 3 oscillators, 2 LFOs, 3 envelope generators, hi low and bandpass filters, a vocoder function, arpegiator, up to 16 simultaneous voices and 7 effects per voice. There are also build in drum sounds and a performance mode which can be played from the keyboard or MIDI sequence.

Everything is housed in a sleek blue package with both metal and plastic construction, a 61 note keyboard with aftertouch, and a knob for nearly every function. This synth is a total beast."

Akai EWI 1000/2000 Analog Wind Synth

via this auction

"This is the original all analog EWI that was based on Nyle Steiner's original Steinerphone design. The controller is entirely touch sensitive, and the module is pure analog. Includes a full bank of wind synth ready sounds. Everything is fully functional. This unit has a couple mods that may be of interest. The very hard to find proprietary cable was removed and replaced with a straight-through 15-Pin SVGA cable. This makes finding a replacement cable easy and inexpensive. Another mod that was done is that the two front panel ports, audio out and audio in, have been duplicated on the back panel. If you rack mount it, this makes keeping connecting cables out of the way on the front. Included with the unit are the original owner's manuals, as well as a small library of programming tips and tricks. Send me your email, and I can send you for no additional cost a PDF of the full service manual as well. Also included are the factory rack ears and attachment screws."

Modular Synth - Koma Komplex + Circadian Rhythms Sequencers

Published on Mar 11, 2017 isvisible / isinvisible

"Here's me working on a new track. The main focus I guess is on the Tip Top Audio 'Circadian Rhythms' and the Koma 'Komplex' sequencers, and not forgetting the old workhorse, 'Pamela's Workout' by ALM. All of which work perfectly together.

Audio as follows:
Bass - WMD 'PDO'.
Plinky Plonk - Livewire 'AFG'.
A fairly passable lap steel guitar type sound - Mutable Instruments 'Rings'.
Percussion - Folktek 'Matter'."

Eventide space - Blackhole + Yamaha Reface CP

Published on Mar 11, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Woah ! its 2017 and this is my first video out :)

Today I was really lucky finding the eventide space for a really good price so I took it with me home.. I decided to just hook it up and try the blackhole algorithm that everyone is talking about, and i really understand what ppl mean now.. yikes its so dark and lush and deep and, well.. listen for yourselves. :) Playing a very simple tune, just jamming around.. the reface CP Rd-1 sound with some proper amount of internal drive and tremolo FX, plus later in the track you also hear the Yamaha CP80 sound.

GEAR: Yamaha reface CP, through the red panda particle (w slight reverse delay) into the eventide space, blackhole.. i start out a bit lower (basically preset settings) then crank it up to max gravity and decay. The bass that you hear is me stepping on the ditto looper on the floor.. which had this C minor reverse loop from the 0 coast stored.. so i though, yeah.. why not, lets use that too for some added depth to the melody.

Thats all folks.. hope you like it !"
