MOOG MuSonics Sonic V 1972 vintage synthesizer demo

Published on May 26, 2017 OFR

"It took me some time to appreciate how amazing this synth really was. I had a Sonic Six for a long time, which has the same basic circuitry, but I never quite got it sounding as good. The only demos I could find show very basic and minimal synth sounds.

However, the Sonic V has amazing routing options, making it more like a modular system than almost anything around that time. With only 2 oscillators and a non-Moog filter, it certainly does not sound like the Minimoog. Yet it does SO much more, that I prefer the Sonic V now. It has so much range and possibility. You can leave it running on endless self-generating soundscapes..."

ambient modular jam (braids, ripples, tides, maths, 0-coast, penrose)

Published on May 26, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

Ok, so I have seen loads of these ambient dreamy sessions with modulars.. and I wanted to give it a shot now that I have my own eurorack :D. Please have some patience with me, this is not really my forté ... just trying to dip my toes in a bit :) Also I'm becoming painfully aware that I need a slight bit more modulation in order to get things like this to the next level... but...whatever, its supposed to be fun right ? :D

So here we go:

Mutable instruments braids is being quantized by the penrose.. which is being fed with a cycled envelope in the maths which is partially controlled by the tides. Also filter gets some modulation from the second maths channel .. it's a bit messy in the middle as you can see.

0-coast handles the bass drone, which is being clocked internally with the contour on max.. pulling this down later I designed the bass drone to resemble a kickdrum .. for a little buildup :D

The beatstep is not used on this one, everything is running free in the modular and 0-coast.

FX on the modular rack is, earthquaker devices, space spiral, transmisser (at the end) and caverns modulated reverd. 0-coast gets some timeline delay treatment + bluesky shimmer on the top."

"Quick demo of the different shapes possible with the Rebel Technology Gonies dual envelope generator.
The envelope shape control offers a continuous morph from logarithmic, to linear, to exponential shape."

via Rebel Technologies

"Γωνίες is a dual envelope generator with unprecedented range and precision, thanks to its unique tempo sync ability. Each envelope has two stages with CV control, adjustable shape, and three modes: trigger, gate and cycle. The attack and release times are tempo dependent and can be synchronised to an arbitrary clock. In cycle mode the envelopes can be used as variable shape, voltage controlled LFOs.

Inside an EMS 2000 Vocoder

This one spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

via Reddit:

"Hey all! This is an EMS 2000 vocoder I just got in the mail! I was too curious to not take its top off (heh heh heh), so I did and was delighted to see all the 16 bands of this lovely vocoder separated out in plain view. I then realized that there were basically no pictures of the insides of these things online, so here you go! Enjoy!"

"In great working condition

comes with guitar presto patch!

All functions work even the sequencer and keyboard! I am leaving the pins in for the keyboard to function, so you can check it out right when you receive it, as the leaning curve can be steep with patching.

It is mounted in a NOS Spartanite case with keys, the keyboard was not mounted to the top case when i got it and i never got around to drilling the 2 holes in the case and finding thumb screws.

Power cable needs a little wiggle sometimes."

Yamaha CS6R SN PY01421

via this auction

Always fun to look at product descriptions from the past. They reflect how manufacturers perceived the market at the time.

"The next generation of CS synthesizers is here, with added sampling and features from the AN1x synth! In keeping with the new CS-line trend of analog emulation for dance and electronic music, the CS6x offers real-time and assignable knobs, scene memory and morphing, MIDI controllability and excellent sounds.Yamaha says that this IS the machine for Trance. Its awesome arpeggiators, filters and phrase sampling are proof of this claim.

Control Synthesis Deep Bass 9

via this auction

"The Deep Bass Nine was commissioned (circa 1994) by UK-based second-hand retailer FX Music Control as an alternative analog mono-bass-synth to satiate the demand for the Roland TB-303. Yes, this is another TB-303 clone. It's very simple and straightforward with basic controls that mirror those found on the TB-303. It's also a true analog MIDI-controlled bass synth with plenty of thumpin' bass potential of its own.

The DB9 is a single-unit rack module with all ten of its knobs on the front panel. There are no hidden menus. Just like the TB-303, the DB9's single oscillator offers two waveforms to choose from - a sawtooth or square wave. That is followed by the 303-cloned Tuning, filter Cut Off Frequency and Resonance, Env Mod, Decay and Accent knobs. Additionally you can set the DB9 to one of the 16 standard MIDI channels, and you can set it to use its external audio input instead of the oscillator allowing you to process external audio through its analog filter (inputs and outputs are mono).

Speaking of filters, the DB9 uses a 24 dB/oct filter which sounds great. It also has a limited frequency cut-off control and a strong resonance control. The resulting sound, although not quite as sharp in the mid range as a TB-303, seems much more deep and warm.

Of course, since the DB9 has no on-board TB-303-like sequencer, MIDI control is essential. The all-import Accent feature of the TB-303 is controlled here by MIDI note velocity - and turning up the Accent knob dials in how much it affects, not the volume of the note, but the filter's frequency and loudness. There is a hidden Glide control, although this is more like a portamento that seems to add some extra release on the envelope.

The Glide and the Cut Off Frequency are the only two parameters that can be controlled via MIDI CC. None of the knobs output MIDI CC data, which means all live control changes need to be performed and/or recorded live. The DB9 also has a built-in CV/Gate converter with inputs and outputs. So it can either be used with some older pre-MIDI equipment you may have or it can be used to bring certain pre-MIDI equipment into the world of MIDI.

The DB9's real strength is that it has its own natural and warm unique sound which has many sweet spots. The sawtooth and square waves are very thick and full sounding, and you can push the resonance right up till it howls. It sits in a mix very well too, so it makes for an ideal dedicated bass synthesizer module. And if you're after something to make some real analogue acid, look no further."
