Boss CE-300 Super Chorus rack unit W/ rack ears - same as Juno 106

via this auction

"Great shape. Small unfortunate scratch on top. Rest of wear is as expected for a rack unit of this age. Works great, no issues. W/ rack ears (STRAIGHT ears. Not bent or over-drilled). Sounds delicious!"

COMPLETE Boss Micro Rack Series

via this auction

"I scoured many nations to get all of these, as they only come up for sale intermittently in the US and elsewhere. Some are much, much harder to find than others.

NOW is your chance to get them ALL in ONE DROP!

They are all in great shape, though in varying degrees--some obviously are going to look better than others. All presentable though and nothing beyond what would be expected for their age.

They all work and are fully functional and sound great. Occasional scratchy pot, but nothing serious or faulty. These things are built like TANKS. One knob is missing on the RCE-10 Chorus, but you can easily find replacement replicas, I just haven't bothered yet.

I have listed them "As Is" but only because they are vintage and carry the same risks that all vintage gear carries. I've used all of them and they--once again--all work and sound great.

Thanks for looking!

Squishy Epic (Seaboard Rise / Strobe 2 performance)

Published on May 9, 2017 Analog Monoxide

"Having fun with the Seaboard Rise and Strobe2.
This is one of the epic MPE presets from Roli for Strobe 2, that I tweaked a little.

No idea why audio/video goes out of sync - I have to check the new software I started using for recording.
Sorry about that :|"

Making Beats with VCNO + Mutant Drums

Published on May 9, 2017 Hexinverter Électronique

"The Hexinverter Électronique VCNO is great as a variable noise source for creating all kinds of drums and percussive sounds.

In this video we show you some examples of how you can use two outputs of VCNO to get a kick drum and snare simultaneously, as well as using it with the Mutant Drums as an external sound source.

This lets you create entire drum patches that can vary with the turn of a knob, or a little bit of CV input modulating VCNO!"

The Deepmind 12, the first synthesizer produced by Behringer, is a fully analog 12-voice polyphonic synthesizer. It is a massive synth, with two oscillators and two LFOs per voice. Three envelope generators can be patched to volume, filters, or other timbral effects using the 8-channel modulation matrix, or sequence pitches or modulation using a fully featured 32-Step sequencer. It contains four FX engines made by T.C. Electronics and Klark Teknik FX, to provide instant access to reverbs, delays, etc... Last but not least, the Deepmind can be controlled remotely via tablet utilizing Wifi.

Lunaris Pads for Kontakt

Published on May 9, 2017 Luftrum1

"First sounds of Lunaris, a demo of some of the presets included. Lunaris ships with over 200 pad presets. Estimated release Q2 2017.

Lunaris is a 5GB Kontakt instrument containing pads only from cinematic underscoring pads to classic analog pads over rhythmic pad to deep ambient pads and any pads in between. Lunaris contains 100 multisampled 24bit pad sources (1/3 of those are Luftrum pads from the Prophet-6) and 100 overtone topping layers of field recordings, synth transients and synth soundscapes that can be combined and mixed via the four layers in Lunaris, to create and sculpt the perfect pad structure.

Shape the sound with the Time Stop knob, that freezes the pad in time and space or further tweak it with the two new innovative features as the Flux Motion that generates slow random motion to the filter, amplitude and panning and the Filter Split that intelligently sort the active filters in different bands, to prevent muddiness and clashing of frequencies. Create and save your own favorite synth pad presets or load one of the presets included with the library.

More info and sound demo’s will follow…"
