New DSP Synthesizers Eurorack Module with Dual Touch Keyboards

You might remember the DSP Synthesizers eurorack module that featured an extended touch keyboard. That module featured the micro-TS synth engine.

This module, in turn, is the controller section featuring a dual touch CV keyboard with a separate coarse tune knob for each.

Roland JX-3P w/ PG-200 Controller SN 330376

via this auction

"Excellent condition analog synth. Perfect functional, but cosmetically shows some use. Two oscillators. Sequencer. Six voice polyphony. Sounds really similar to the Juno series (6 and 60) but you have the two oscillators (DCOs) and you can control them independently and do pulse width modulation (PMW). this has the control unit original to it-- the roland PG 200."

Unreleased - Polymoog Plug-in PolyM by XILS Lab

Published on May 24, 2017 Adam Borseti

"Yep! With XILS Lab getting ready to release the PolyM soon, I figured I'd record a little video of myself messing around on a Polymoog plug-in that has never been seen before..... maybe anywhere! Dates back to the summer of 2008, when I was working with the folks over at DubSounds, doing the presets for it.

It's a shame the main designer/coder/GUI artist left for no reason.... it's like he walked off of the face of the Earth! Still, I use this Polymoog from time to time for its authenticity and charm..... nothing sounds like a Polymoog.


(PS: No, you can't have it!)"

Intellijel - Rainmaker Random Textures

Published on May 24, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Plenty more to come with the Intellijel Rainmaker but I just wanted to show how cool it is creating random textures by just randomising all functions with an encoder press. You can let the audio buffer chain across the FX to create distant smeared sound beds or clear it and start fresh each time. Loads of sound exploration."

Novation Peak 8-Voice Desktop Synth Moogfest Demo

Published on May 21, 2017 Guitar Center

"Peak is an 8-voice desktop polyphonic synthesizer with three New Oxford Oscillators for each voice. The oscillators sound completely analogue by being high-quality NCOs (Numerically-Controlled Oscillators), but gain the flexibility of the digital domain with 17 digital wavetables. They can also become a linear FM source using either the analogue-sounding NCOs or digital wavetables – so are able to cross-modulate in an recursive loop.

The synth has a resonant multi-mode analog filter for each voice, and three distortion points for each voice – pre-filter, post-filter and global – in an analogue signal chain. Peak is capable of receiving polyphonic aftertouch, which puts expression right at your fingertips. Reverb, delay and chorus effects are at one's disposal, and there is also an on-board arpeggiator.

The modulation system puts a 16-slot modulation matrix and 16 direct assignments in the main controls, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing. There are three ADSR envelopes and two LFOs for each voice, and more elaborate movements and secondary ‘via’ assignments are made just a few menu button presses away. In addition, two animate buttons give live performers instant one-touch transformation of patches.

Peak connects to modular systems via a CV modulation input, and has MIDI I/O on five-pin DIN ports, so other MIDI gear can be connected. Via USB, Peak can be plugged into Mac or PC, where unlimited patches can be kept using the Components software. Track Select buttons jump between banks of eight tracks/channels, and the bottom row of buttons map to Mute, Solo or Record Arm. The top two rows of rotaries, meanwhile, are freely MIDI mappable – yours to assign as you see fit!"

Ströme live beim PULS Festival 2016 (Full Concert) & Live at Superbooth 2017

Published on Dec 6, 2016 PULS Musik

"Alle Fotos und Videos vom PULS Festival:"

via Florian Anwander:

"Two guys from Munich, Germany do live music with two big modular systems. The group is called 'Ströme' which is german for "electric currents". They are professional musicians. They played bass and drums for several years in the very successful bavarian band "La Brass Banda". The left one is Mario Schönhuber, the (former) bass player. He is doing most of the sequences and chords. The guy at the right system is Tobias Weber (drummer at La Brass Banda), he is doing all drums and percussive stuff.

Tobias uses in the first video the Doepfer A-157 for the drum programming, but changed now to a Tiptop Audio Circadian Rhythm (can be seen in the Berlin video).

Marios uses a combination of Audio Damage Sequencer 1, Stillson Hammer, Intellijel Metropolis, and Make Noise Tempi for his bass sequences. In the first video he is using still a Roland JD-Xi for the chords, but recently he changed over to a Audio Damage Sequencer 1 which controls for Doepfer A-111-3 plus monophonic filter and vca (you may spot it in the Berlin video in the most upper row).

Enjoy it."

"Up for sale is extremely rare Soviet vintage polyphonic analog synthesizer 'FAEMI-1M'. It is a compact polyphonic analog synthesizer produced by Katchkanar radio equipment factory 'Formanta', which is the manufacturer of such well-known synthesizers as Polivoks, Formanta, Manual, Maestro etc. Faemi-1M is a "young brother" of a very popular synthesizer Polivoks. It bears the same logo on the package and retains some of its most impressive capabilities, for example the powerful resonance filter. The handy keyboard of the synthesizer has also remained unchanged. But unlike Polivoks, this synthesizer is entirely polyphonic (a so called "organ-string-synthesizer"), which makes it possible to merge several timbres with the addition of a timbre (Brass) passed through the filter."

via this auction

"This Roland SH-09 Analog Synth is in very nice shape. It was originally sold in the USA I believe in about 1980 and was made in Japan. It is serial #096888. All of the sliders, switches, controls and mod wheel work perfectly. It does have some wear/cleaning marks on the center white keys. It also has a blem on the middle back side as you can see in photo #4. Other than that this one is in really nice shape and works perfectly. The AC cable is the attached type and there is no case or manual for it."

Sampling ARP Solina String Synthesizer on Ensoniq EPS 16 Plus

Published on May 8, 2017 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2017

Today I am messing around with a vintage Ensoniq EPS 16 Plus sampler. These were made around 1990 (27 years ago!) and are an excellent crunchy sampler alternative to Akai S-900 and E-mu Emulator. For this video I sampled an ARP Solina String Ensemble. This is less of a tutorial and more of a comparison. Does the sampler do the Solina any justice? Check it out and see. Be sure to click 'LIKE' and thanks for watching."

ARP Solina String Synthesizer On Ensoniq EPS 16 Plus [2/2]

Published on May 23, 2017

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c.2017

This is a quick follow up to the last Ensoniq EPS 16+ Sampler demo. In my previous EPS 16 Plus demo it was suggested I use a phaser to help give the sound some movement. After all it worked for Jean Michel Jarre on his Eminent. I'm in luck! I happen to have a Boss PH-2 Super Phaser. I also use my delay trick from my previous PH-2 demo to help widen the stereo image a bit."
