Improvisation LXXVII: Poly Evolver Keyboard

Published on May 22, 2017 Sacred Synthesis

"A lumbering piece of music that uses only Evolvers. A soft choir-like pad with a touch of digital aliasing meanders from chord to chord, while a bright pad having the high pass filter modulated by the third envelope provides a sort of echo. The improvisation was meant primarily to showcase the second pad, which is new.

EML ElectroComp 101

via this auction

"Introduced by Connecticut based Electronic Music Laboratories in 1972, the ElectroComp 101 is a portable and patchable duophonic synthesizer which rivals other 1970s synths from Moog and Arp. Notable for it's relative tuning stability and distinctive audio signature, the EML 101 is a synth that has a character all of its own, with a distinctive sample and hold circuit and ring/amplitude modulation. The rich sound of this synth is rounded out by a 12/db octave multimode filter. This instrument, SN 1072, arrived in solid physical condition, and with the replacement of three potentiometers and full calibration and tuning is in incredible operational shape. This 101 comes with original manual and documentation, along with period patch cables."

Sequential Circuits Six-Trak SN 004789 w/ Original Box & Laminated Front Panel Guide

via this auction

"Although typically understood as a slimmed down entry level offering from Sequential Circuits, the Six-Trak has the distinction of being one of the first multi-timbral MIDI synthesizers. Like the name says, the built in sequencer can access all six voices individually for easy stand alone composition. This Six Trak, sn 004789, is the cleanest one we've ever seen, from the original owner, with the original receipt still intact. There is one blemish below the keybed on the right side of the synth, otherwise all is clean, tidy, and sparkly. Additionally, we had this synth serviced, in order to have all the dust blown out of the potentiometers and the key contacts cleaned. This synth includes the original box with all the original packaging, the manual, and the laminated front panel guide. This is the finest Six Trak to ever come through Synth City, so take note, and contact with any further questions."

In this video I am running various synthesizers through a Boss/Roland PH-2 Super Phaser Pedal. The PH-2 is an analog pedal made from the mid 80's to 2001. Since the PH-2 is monophonic I will be auditioning it in both mono, and with stereo widening provided by an Eventide Timefactor. Sounds range from Jean Michel Jarre to Polymoog Vox Humana as heard on Gary Numan 'Cars'.

Improving Intonation using the AJH Synth V-Scale (Part 1: Moog Mother-32)

Published on May 22, 2017 Learning Modular

"This is the first of two videos using the Eurorack-format AJH Synth V-Scale to fine-tune the intonation of an analog module (such as the oscillator built into the semi-modular Moog Mother-32) to track pitch over a 5 octave range. The procedure outlined in this video – using a reference oscillator for comparison, as well as a dual-trace ‘scope such as the Mordax DATA to see tuning differences – can be used to tune most oscillators that allow you to adjust their tracking; the V-Scale happens to be exceptional at this as it provides front-panel access to a high-precision multi-turn trim control while also functioning as a high-quality buffered multiple.

For more information and tips on the tuning procedure, see the companion article on"

Roland EF-303 Groove Effects Processor / Synthesizer / Sequencer SN ZN70620

via this auction

"Roland EF-303 is three things in one: a digital midi controlled synthesizer, a 16 step midi sequencer, and an effects unit. It's a perfect addition to both a studio setup and a live rig...

Quick feature rundown:

- 16 effects for manipulating incoming sounds, such as filter, isolator, flanger, phaser, voice mod.
- Built in drum machine and monophonic synthesizer.
- Phono/line stereo RCA in/out with ground so it can be used with a wide variety of sound sources (turntables, CD-decks, external gear) and a 1/4" microphone input as well.
- Step modulator sequencer similar to the Roland SP-808, basically like an analog sequencer which is used to create bass/lead lines from the built in synth.
- Effect cue function enabling you to preview the effect before sending it to main speakers, perfect for live performances.
- Features an auto BPM counter derived from the popular Roland DJ-2000 mixer series."

Wave Junction Filter Routing

Published on May 22, 2017 Meta Function

"In this video, Meta Function demonstrate filter routing on the Wave Junction, a Max For Live synthesizer developed in partnership with

The Wave Junction features three independent state variable filters, each with independent controls. Using filtering, you can remove frequencies fed from the raw harmonics of the oscillators and the noise sources in a technique akin to sculpture. Each filter shares similar controls that allow a myriad of features allowing for complex timbre shaping. Two of the filters allow complex routing of both oscillators and both noise sources. A third master filter allows adaptation of the overall timbre produced by the Wave Junction.

In this video oscillator one is routed to state variable filter one, configure as a 24dB 4 pole lowpass resonant filter. Oscilaltor two is routed to state varaiable filter two operating with a 24db 4 pole high pass resonant response. This creates an interesting bandpass mix of both oscillators. The balance of each filter is tweaked before state variable filter three is engaged that uses a resonant 24dB 4 pole transistor ladder response. Finally the modualtion matrix is used to route LFO 1 to the cutoff frequency of state variable filter 1, LFO 2 to the cutoff frequency of state variable filter 2 and LFO 3 to the cutoff frequency of state variable filter 3.

Watch at 720p with good quality audio monitoring for the best experience.

Meta Function developed the Max For Live synthesizer, the Wave Junction in partnership with A four voice paraphonic synth with 2 multi-mode osc, three multi-mode filters, 5 LFOs, 5 Envs and a 12 slot modulation matrix.

You can buy it from Sonicstate right here for £19.95:

Note: Ableton Live 9.6.1 and Max4Live 7.2.2 required."
