Rheyne - Live Jam #171

Published on Apr 18, 2017 Rheyne

"Live looping with all sounds from Moog and Make Noise synths and modules. Each synth voice is played on a NI KompleteKontrol 49 keyboard, with presets stored on different MIDI channels for separate control of each voice.

The hi-hats are created by muting and un-muting a clock signal from a Make Noise Tempi, set to a 10ms duty cycle and fed to the VCA input of a Dave Smith DSM01 filter, which is receiving noise from one of the Moog Mother-32 modules. The S+H effect on the filter is from another clock signal on the Tempi sent to a Make Noise Wogglebug, with its random voltage output sent to the DSM01 VCF input. The Tempi is kept in sync with Ableton from one of the outs on an Expert Sleepers ES-8 and a clock signal from Silent Way.

MIDI loops are recorded in Ableton with a Novation Launchpad, and Lemur is running on an iPad as an Ableton remote. All effects are from Ableton. Audio was recorded with the ES-8 and a PreSonus 1818VSL, with the final output recorded to the balanced inputs of a Tascam DR-44 from the mixer."

"A sublime vintage analog synthesiser which has been kept in a smoke free studio, and due to a recent studio move some items are being sold due to space restrictions.

The CS60 is the smaller brother of the CS-80 for a fraction of the price.
This particular one was serviced by SRS in July'13 however the ribbon controller has since developed a fault and is not working. All other functions are operational."

ALM Busy Circuits - Akemie's Castle

Published on Apr 18, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Fan of FM? Then look no further than this sooooped up mega module of FM goodness. Akemie's Castle from ALM Busy Circuits brings original NOS chip Yamaha FM to modular and breaks out all the control. Unleashing the power of multi-operator digital FM without hiding it behind modules. But enough of the press release style blurb ... this thing is KILLER! An absolute machine for filthy bass, noisy percussive, softly moving chord tones and more. It's a big modules, but all those controls are great fun with manual wiggling or powerful under voltage control. Dual oscillator, 4 FM operators, chords, feedback, loads of CV input what's not to like?"

PUSH TURN MOVE - Interface Design in Electronic Music

On Kickstarter here. Spotted this one on Retro Synth Ads Twitter feed.

"About this project


My name is Kim Bjørn and welcome to the PUSH TURN MOVE Kickstarter campaign!

Like many others I have been following the development of music technology for years. As those years passed, I began to imagine combining my interest for design with my love of gear - in order to write a comprehensive book about interface design in electronic music.

PUSH TURN MOVE shows all kinds of equipment but the ambition goes further: It provides a categorization of musical gear and software and explores the functional, artistic and aesthetic world of user interfaces in the context of making electronic music.

Initially the book was born out of my own passion. However it has now developed into a multi-voiced project since it presents the diverse thoughts of a long list of innovative makers, artists and companies who conceived or use these great music making tools.

Quite unique is that a string of significant brands have joined the book side by side to share their knowledge about the growing family of instruments and software for making electronic music.

So what exactly is PUSH TURN MOVE and why do we seek funding on Kickstarter? The answer is that PUSH TURN MOVE is a niche book, not aimed at a mainstream audience. Watch the video, take the tour below and please support the book by selecting a reward if you like the idea.

Soulsby at Superbooth 2017

via Soulsby Synthesizers:

"Soulsby Synthesizers will be at Superbooth 2017 in Berlin from 20th-22nd April. If you (or anyone else from your company) are attending we would love to show you our new products.

We are at Booth H254 on the first floor (near the toilets!). Please let us know if there is a specific day and time you would like to visit and I can make sure that I am at the booth to demonstrate the products.

Here is some info on the new products:


This is a new 2HP Eurorack module based on the Atmegatron Arpeggiator algorithm. Features include:
• 16 Atmegatron patterns
• 16 User patterns
• MIDI input via mini-jack
• Chord generation via 2x V/Oct inputs
• Clock input
• V/Oct output
• Clock division settings
• Ping-pong mode

Although the AT-ARP is only 2HP, it contains a lot of powerful features and implements the full potential of the Atmegatron Arpeggiator algorithm.

The AT-ARP will be available in summer this year, price TBC, but around €99.

Oscidrum software for Oscitron

This is an 8 part, 16 step drum machine for the Oscitron Eurorack module. The software will be available for free. The overlay and programmer cable (along with an Odytron overlay) will be available as an Accessories Pack for the Oscitron.
Oscidrum features includes:

• 8 drum samples in crunchy 8-bit 11kHz.
• Each instrument has volume, pitch, length and delay FX parameters. All bar the latter are controllable via CV.
• 8 user patterns (also saves instrument parameters)
• Engine sample rate controllable locally or via V/Oct input (so can play melodies using the drum sounds!)
• External reset and pattern select CV input
• Clock input and audio output
• Currently 2 banks of sounds available (this will increase in time)

The Oscitron Accessories Pack will launch in May this year. Price €19.

Many thanks and I hope to meet you there!

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 1983 (Stored in Museum) SN 5651

via this auction

"I’m a longtime synthesizer enthusiast with backgrounds in both music and technology and am finally parting with some of my favorites after 30+ years!

This listing is for my Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 (Rev 3) Synthesizer. Bought directly from the factory, I’m the first and original owner and it was stored in a temperature controlled environment at the NAMM Museum of Making Music for the last 12+ years. Having never been gigged with and only occasionally used in my home studio (before museum), this P5 is in impeccable shape and is literally museum quality.

In preparation of selling it I had it serviced where it underwent a full pot cleaning, key bushing replacement, J-wire alignment, bus-bar cleaning, and new backup battery making it fully operational inside and out. Upgraded to the highest level operating ROM (10-5) with 120 Factory programs, this Prophet-5 is MIDI equipped and enabled. This unit has also successfully completed 100 hours of burn-in, many of the hours using MIDI sequences.

Included is original Operation Manual, Technical Manual, Footswitch, 120 Factory Presets Cassette, Brand New Light-Duty Case."

"Working out a new (ambient (ish) techno (ish)) track (it isn't really, but I don't really know what style to call it... do we really need genre's?) (?).

Everything apart from the bass drum (Orgone Accumulator) and Braids (percussion and noises) is going through various switches, Doepfer A-151, A-152 and WMD Sequential Switch Matrix (SSM)."
