"Dave Smith Instruments (DSI) Prophet Rev2 + Prophet 6 demo featuring presets. The Rev2 is DSI's newest analog synth which is an upgrade of their Prophet 08 synth. The Prophet 6 is slightly older but still a modern analog synth. No other effects or processing was done, the sound was recorded straight from the synthesizers in stereo. Recorded at the DSI office showroom in San Francisco, CA."

PPG WAVE 2.2 with MIDI

via this auction

"A rare opportunity to purchase one of the original PPG Wave synths, this the 2.2 version with midi is rare in itself and truely a fantastic piece which is much sought after.

This particular one has been hardly used and kept in a smoke free studio with very minor wear and tear.

A collectors piece, these seldom come up on the market and in truth is a very reluctant sale."

A Few Hartmann Neuron Sounds

Published on May 19, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"The Hartmann Neuron is a peculiarity among synthesizers as a whole: instead of structuring sounds around traditional oscillators or filters, it uses simple neural networks to analyze and recreate models of different "scapes" and "spheres." In Neuron-speak, that means this synth is based around techniques of physical modeling, emulating different forms of exciters and different forms of resonators (or, in Neuron-speak, Resynators) to provide unique approaches to sound design. Excelling at evolving sounds, peculiar pads, and 5.1 spatialized music, the Neuron is a spectacular synth for creating a sense of ambience and atmosphere. This video explores some of the rich, peculiar, and alien soundscapes that the Neuron can produce."

New Nozoïd MMO-3 Digital, Semi-modular, Monophonic but Stereo Synthesizer.

MMO-3 presentation from Nozoid on Vimeo.

The MMO-3 might look familiar. The design is very similar to Nozoïd's previous synths, the OSC-2 and MMO-4.

The following are some details and pics via Nozoïd where you'll find additional demos and details.

"MMO-3 is a digital, semi-modular, monophonic but stereo synthesizer. Built around various types of modulation synthesis (AM, FM, PM, WS), this synthesizer is mostly dedicated to atonal sound generation. From fat drones, glitchy electronic patterns or percussive noise, the MMO-3 offers rich and complex timbre control.

"Unlike most FM synthesizers, the MMO-3 is not limited to a specific modulation routing. All 3 oscillators can be modulated by all other oscillators or LFOs. Modulation parameters are accessible thanks to 9 knobs for an accurate and continuous adjustment of the timbre.

Moreover, it’s not only a FM synth : it also offers Phase Modulation, Amplitude Modulation and a custom Wave Shaper modulation technique where an oscillator amplitude can be amplified prior to a wave-shaper in order to add harmonics without frequency variation.

Also, a joystick allows for easy manipulation of modulations, for a fast and expressive control of the sound.

What is inside?
30 control knobs
A joystick to control modulation parameters
3 oscillators
FM, AM, PM and Wave Shaping modulation
3 LFOs with complex waveform
1 MIX (3 channels, stereo)
1 dual VCA
1 dual distortion
A very powerful digital connection matrix to control oscillator modulations
2 octaves keyboard with portamento
1 Stereo audio line IN
1 Stereo audio line OUT
1 MIDI input (note / velocity / pitch wheel / control change)
1 analog CV IN and 1 GATE IN"

The Peak gets sequenced by the Circuit, which gets a Midi Clock from the SND Acme. The SND also sends a clock to the Octratrack, which sequences the small modular synth setup. The kick drum is a sample played by the Octatrack."

New Bastl Instruments DUDE - miniature 5 channel mixer & more

Published on May 19, 2017 Bastl Instruments

music by Václav a.k.a. Paseka :

via Bastl Instruments

"Dude is a portable battery operated 5 channel audio mixer with mini jack inputs and output. Each channel has a dedicated mute button and up to +20dB gain to boost weak signals and saturate line level signals. It is a monophonic mixer but can drive your headphones and therefore its perfect for small portable rigs or submixes on stage. It runs on four AA batteries (or external power supply) and it is almost as small as its battery pack. Because each channel has enough gain it can be turned into a tone generator by feeding the output back to an input thru a passive eq and other simple circuits.


5 channel monophonic mixer
up to +20dB (10x) gain knob for each channel
dedicated mute button switch per channel (not click less)
dual mono output for driving headphones
powered by 4x AA battery or external adaptor 9-12VDC"

ROLAND SH-1 Vintage Analog Synthesizer w/ Original Suitcase SN 710907

via this auction

"ROLAND SH-1 monophonic analog synthesizer, the first of Roland's revolutionary SH line of synthesizers that spawned such classics as the SH-101, SH-09 and SH-7.

The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and knobs and sliders working well to the best of my knowledge. Maybe a slight scratch noise on some of the sliders, which could do with some adjustment/servicing if required.

Cosmetically the unit is in nice condition as you can see. There are some wear and minor marks here and there but nothing too major."

Repro-1 is a reverent emulation of a famous vintage synth. All the quirks and personality of the original captured using component-level modelling for a truly authentic analogue sound. A classic design with fierce capabilities: two-pattern step sequencer, self-oscillating filter, arpeggiator, a unique modulation section, five stomp-box effects… and proudly mono like the original."

Auto Noodle Machine

Published on May 19, 2017 Urs Heckmann

Another from U-he's Urs Heckmann.

"A small patch with four voices being sequenced by one sequencer, but only one voice (STO) plays the actual sequence. I used a sample & hold on another voice (AJH VCO+VCF) to make it play a reduction of the sequence. I used Maths and uScale to create two voice polyphonic noodle from Complex Oscillator on top of the base sequence. This makes it sound a bit like a crossover of chiptune and carnival music."

Intellijel Metropolis 1.3 Firmware + Make Noise 0-Coast (Quick Test)

"Just a quick test of the new 1.3 Firmware update for the Intellijel Metropolis. I tested the Ratcheting per stage feature as well as using Aux A to transpose the notes from the QuNexus Keyboard, and Aux B to play the Ratcheting in realtime. I couldn't get the new Saving feature to work for some reason. Metropolis is sequencing the Make Noise 0-Coast, with Delay from the 4MS Dual Looping Delay, and Reverb (and a touch of granular stuff) from the Mutable Instruments Clouds."

Reflex LiveLoop - SGS Live Reversing!

Published on May 18, 2017 freshnelly

"Here's a long delayed (excuse the pun!) video on using SGS (SLice groove sequencer) to do a live reverse.

If you're accustomed to using the SGS feature of the Reflex then this will be easy for you! If not, better look at the manual first.

The idea is to record a single loop in R/P mode, which will also create a single Slice.

That Slice is then hand played as a simple SGS being cohesive to the original loop's "beat" or length.
(This can also be done with a clock on SGS etc etc, but by hand is so much more fun and quick to do!)

Now the SGS is playing the single slice (as a groove ..or not) with the song or track still playing into the Reflex, hit the Record button to start recording inside the SGS loop area.

Your SGS sequence will be updated with the new recording, and as long as the tempo is still the same, it'll sound great!

Now try reverse on PlayFX STart/End knobs and voila! Live reverse, in sync, and on time."
