Korg Mono/Poly

via this auction

"A cool analog monophonic/polyphonic from Korg. It has 4 VCO's which can be shared in 4-voice Polyphonic mode, or linked in Unison for a versatile monophonic lead. Each VCO has its own level, tune, and waveform type control. Waveforms include triangle, sawtooth, variable pulse wave. It has a great VCF (filter) section as well as 2 envelope generators (one for the oscillators and one for the filter). There are also 2 individual LFO's which can be used to modulate the Pulse Width, envelope and Arpeggiator independently.

A very flexible and fun synth. Other cool tricks up its sleeve include chord memory and an effects mode in which oscillators have a variety of ways to be synced. The built-in Arpeggiator and sequencer can run all 4 VCO's at a time or cycle through each voice per note! There's also portamento, CV/Gate, VCF and VCO mod inputs, white noise generator, and the pitch/mod wheels can be assigned to control LFO, pitch or the filter. Its sound quality is nice and very Korg.

Synth is in good working condition, has a few dings/blemishes in the wood sides, but pretty much what you would expect from a vintage synth of this age, but nothing that affects playability.

Comes with copy of monopoly user manual and settings manual."

Insert Coin... PO-12 / PO-16 / PO-20 / PO-28 & Making a PO Stand...

Published on Apr 9, 2017 Micro Banshee

"Track: Insert Coin...

I've recently picked up another two Pocket Operators, PO-28 Robot and PO-16 Factory, to go with my PO-20 Arcade & PO-12 Rhythm - the track uses my sequences from the Arcade and Rhythm and two pre-sets, one each from the Factory and Robot.

Also, a quick tutorial on how I create my PO- Stands.

A minimal set-up Jam, using 4 Pocket Operators and a Zoom recorder.

I hope you enjoy the track, if not, no worries.

Use of the Gate in Theremin playing / E-pro Theremin & Volca Sample

Published on Apr 9, 2017 Therminal C

"Here's my demo-tuto video about the use of the Gate in Theremin playing.

A huge thanks to Alain Gilléron of Wavelicker for making the external Gate : such a great tool! I am loving making music with it! :-)

Music & video by Therminal C, ©2017.

PS : I still do not understand why the Gate would trigger two steps on the sequencer. I have tried the Korg Volca Sample & the Pocket Operator. Both with the same result. I have the feeling this might have something to do with the sequencer's internal clock. But then, that does not explain why the Gate on the Etherwave Plus triggers sometimes 2 steps, and sometimes more, whereas with the external Gate i get 2 steps everytime. Fell free to comment if you have any explanation about this! :-)"

New System 80 JOVE - Open Source Roland Jupiter-6 Inspired Eurorack Filter Module

You might recall System 80s Roland TR-808 eurorack module. It appears they now have a new open source eurorack filter module based on the Roland Jupiter-6. Demos below.

Details via System 80:

"The Roland Jupiter-6 is a 1980s analogue polysynth with a great sounding multimode filter that is quite distinct from other Roland filters of the same era. Here it is recreated in a 14 HP Eurorack module with an added 2-pole 12 dB low pass mode, reminiscent of the Jupiter-8. Like most vintage Roland filters, it is based around a cascaded Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA), in this case using the LM13700 OTA in place of the obsolete IR3109 quad OTA.


Carefully compared to an original Jupiter-6, JOVE is a faithful interpretation of the Jupiter-6 multimode filter without using obsolete parts.


4 modes: 24 dB low pass, 12 dB low pass, band pass and high pass
2 audio inputs, one log attenuated and one non-attenuated
2 frequency CV inputs, one unipolar input and one attenuverted input
1 resonance CV input, non-attenuated
Open Source

JOVE is open source hardware. The design files are available on Github"

New Beast-Tek Hyper Fist VCO Plutonium 239

Published on Apr 8, 2017 paul tas

via error instruments:

"The Plutonium-239 Hyper Fist is a post apocalyptic wave table VCO with a resonant lo-fi feedback delay that can produce screechy spacey drones, wild glitches in addition to functioning as a standard wavetable VCO with pluse width modulation and waveshaping. The P-293 Hyper Fist has a clock input which can be clocked at audio rate to produce AM effects or slowly at note/beat rates to produce interesting percussive synchronization.​

8bit Grain table sound module

31khz / 10.5khz internal sample rate
PWM Audio @ 76.5khz
FREQ/MOD1/MOD2: -5 .. +5v safe but effective range 0..5v

Vintage ROLAND CR-78 CompuRhythm Analogue Drum Machine SN 821142

via this auction

"All the analogue drum and percussion sounds work perfectly and are calibrated and tuned to factory specs. The programming section is fully tested and working and benefits from having all the RAM renewed. The battery has also been upgraded from the old NICAD standard to a modern(non leaky!) high grade 1200ah Lithium battery which has a ten year lifetime. The power cable and plug were also renewed in service.

No noisy sliders, sticky buttons or anything else. Ready to go and make music with!

Physically in superb condition, the front panel and buttons are near mint. The case has some wear and tear but it really is minimal considering it's nearly 40 years old now!"

BURG - blue sky beneath (elektron analog four, KORG monologue, ms-20, volca)

Published on Apr 9, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Hey, friends !! Oh man, I have been sick all weekend trying to make music but the flu/cold has won every day until now!! :D

I have been wanting to make an uptempo track for some time now since I have a gig upcoming and I need to polish the dancefloor vibes a bit. Now, I'm not saying this one would burn the floor but at least I'm getting closer to music that makes the feet stomp (mine did a little bit) :)

There is a lot of stuff going on in this track, the main bass-punch is from the volca bass and the tb-3.. adding some monologue drive on top from time to time. The arturia microbrute is getting some crunch from the solidgoldfx fuzz Imperial.. which makes the sequence drive and pop out.

The shining star on this track, however, is, without a doubt the Elektron analog four, where I have many sequences shuffling up the beat. Also, its currently controlling my 0-coast over CV.. so in total 5 separate patterns that are punched in/out.. lovely little piece of gear.

In total it's a whopping 13 minutes, I can't seem to make them shorter as I like doing the "intros" haha :D I hope you can make it through and enjoy it.. I had loads of fun making it in the end once I managed to beat the flu/cold!

Gear used: Elektron Analog Four, System-1, TB-3, TR-8, KORG volca bass, keys, fm, ms-20, monologue, novation circuit (sequencer only), 0-coast, microbrute, NLA1, microgranny, erebus, reface CP, beatstep pro
