Eric Archer aka Rare Waves - Electro Jam Session w/ Rare Prototype Synths

Published on May 5, 2017 EA78751

"This electro track demonstrates a special selection of one-of-a-kind analog synths from my R&D lab. It features the LMS-17 Light Matrix Synthesizer, which is an update on a rare item called dR0NEMATr1X that I offered 8 years ago. The LMS-17 is a two-oscillator CV/Gate synth with a unique 2D array of tone-emitting LEDs, which you blend together with a light sensor stylus.

Also in the mix is a prototype acid bassline machine with a diode bridge filter, and a sweet pair of 100% MIDI-controlled analog synths called ZM-1A. You'll also hear some Grendel Drone Commander, and the Grendel RA-9 Grenadier plays a big role, naturally. (Plus a little help from the Blofeld and Alesis D4 drums).

Hopefully more of my R&D projects will make it to the marketplace soon... or at least some day. Visit to see what’s out now."

Paia 4700 Modular Synth VCOs

via this auction

"This is a powered case containing three PAiA 4700 series VCOs and a Multiple/Watt Block unit. All VCOs power up, emit sound and seem to respond to control voltage via the pin inputs. I only had one other unit to test this with so I can't say for sure if it works exactly as it should, but it functions as far as I can test it. These were built from kits may years ago and I got this case at a garage sale so they could obviously use a little bit of work."

Mother Gets A New Groove

Published on May 5, 2017 intellijel

"In this video we are playing with a Moog Mother-32 integrated with an intellijel system. The mother-32 is being sequenced by a Metropolis and modulated by various CV sources such as the Dixie and Quadra to create a wobbly bassline. A unison drone from a Shapeshifter creates a sort of background pad sound. We use some Springray spring reverb, Jellysquasher compression and delay pattern from the Rainmaker to create a more complex soundscape."

The RCA-jacks are gone. Instead you get proper jacks and a 3.5mm one for eurorack fun. The outs are parallel but the ins are only one usable at the time (the 3.5 when two are plugged). The input sums into the filter which sounds raw!"

BURG - soundtrack for the dead (0-coast, Λόγοι, erebus, ms-20, monologue)

Published on May 5, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

My second modular jam, this time I think a bit more controlled.. yes ? Ok anyways, atleast not as messed up as the first one since I decided to do a simpler setup .. just using the Rebel technologies Λόγοι from the 7U case to control the EG decay on the 0-coast, and the PWM on the erebus.. triggered by the clock in the 0-coast. :D The beatstep pro controls both the 0-coast and the erebus over CV.. its really simple to get a jam going modular style, loving it so far :D

Modular feeds into particle and eventide space, ms-20 to el capistan, monologue into timeline (filter delay) and ms-70 reverb, dreadbox into bluesky (modulated room).

The melody kept looping for some time before I decided to record it.. it is a note progression/loop that has been playing in my head for some time and I wanted to make use of it before it faded away, save it for the future maybe I dunno.

Gear used, 0-coast, Λόγοι, erebus, ms-20, monologue, beatstep pro, eventide space, red panda particle, strymon timeline, capistan and bluesky + the ms-70 CDR

Hope you like it !!"
