New Million Machine March Eurorack Format Moog Werkstatt 01

Million Machine March (formerly Ninstrument) has a new port of the Moog Werkstatt 01 in eurorack format. The new design is not only closer to the classic Moog module aesthetic, but also a few hp narrower. You can find the original WST-E1 Werkstatt ported here for comparison.

Million Machine March has also ported Moog's Moogerfoogers to eurorack modular format.

[Demo] New Module from Alright Devices! - T-Wrex

Published on May 28, 2017 anthony burchell

"Howdy! So excited to show off the newest module from Alright Devices! A bit crushing, sound decimating, cv mangling Dino!

The T-Wrex! I've had the privledge of getting to know this little guy for some time now and can say with confidence it is a super inspiring module for many reasons. I particularly love using decimation on saws through a filter. Vowely sounds! Both effects are normaled to each other or can be used independently in their own chains. The bit crushing makes an excellent utility for CV mangling as well. Alright! :D"

Ibanez Bi-Mode Chorus Pedal Demo w/ Synthesizers #9

Published on May 28, 2017 gstormelectro

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

In this video I demonstrate the Ibanez Bi-Mode Chorus with a Roland Alpha Juno-1 synthesizer. This is a vintage analog chorus from the 80s that uses Panasonic BBD Chips. It has only one chorus line like most pedals. However it is modulated by two LFOs w/ corresponding width (amount) knobs on each! How does it sound with a synthesizer? You be the judge."

KAWAI K5m Digital Multi-Dimensional Synthesizer SN 115510

via this auction

Update: Someone wrote in questioning this listing for a number of reasons including the higher than normal price, especially considering the issue with volume slider, as well as the description being pulled from another site, and it stating these are easy to program. Ease of programmability of course is subjective, but I agree, owning a K5000s, a newer additive synth from Kawai, they are less intuitive to program than your standard subtractive analog. Regarding the listing being legit, one, the seller did not have to mention the issue with the volume slider but did, two, SN 115510 has not been listed here, so the images are new as far as I know, and three, when you buy through eBay, ALWAYS buy through eBay and abide by their rules. If you do, you will be covered by their buyer protection, if you don't you won't. It's as simple as that. As for the price, it is higher as you can see via a quick search on the site and checking other listings. And of course always check the seller's feedback. In short, always do your due diligence when buying online.

"The Kawai K5 offers all the sound-creating power of additive synthesis technology in an affordable, user-friendly format. This enables you to construct sounds from their harmonic components, the same way they are created in nature. With the K5, you can control the relative amplitude of up to 126 harmonic sine waves! This yields unprecedented clarity and accuracy for recreating natural sounds or developing your own unique timbres. And, because it is so natural, the KS's programming system will be easy for you to master. But that's just the beginning. The complex waveforms produced by harmonic manipulation can be passed through filters, amplifiers, LFOs, envelope generators and other processors with which you may already be familiar. These provide the kind of precise articulation control for which analog synthesizers are well-known. So you're getting the best of both worlds -- digital clarity and analog control in one comprehensive, performance-oriented package."

Nonlinear circuits VCO demo Part 1

Published on May 28, 2017 Randy Piscione

"Demo of a Nonlinearcircuits VCO. From the nlc website, 'The VCO is a standard Mikulic/Electronotes core with phase sync and pan-pulse circuitry from the Aries AR-338.' This is from 2012.

I created a custom (and not particularly attractive) panel to house two of these behind it. Going to do another video to demo the sync and FM but probably something more performance-oriented.

"I finally got the Buchla 144 clones built (thanks Mike & Ross). It was quite a journey from getting the boards made, getting the panel designed (including finding the right font) and manufactured / screen printed, to populating the panel and wiring everything up. Times three. And they look and sound superb..."

Custom Cream White Roland Juno-106 SN 454137

via this auction

The bender section reminds me of Gary Numan's Berserker blue on white look.

via the listing: "Purchased in October 2016 from SynthSpa - a US company who restore and customise vintage synthesisers, specialising in the Juno 106.

A phenomenal piece of gear. Used just a handful of times since purchasing. Selling as I unfortunately don't get as much time to use it as I would like.

Has had a full restoration in addition to the custom colour package which includes a new body colour, new wood sides, and new LEDs for the bender, screen, and 3mm lights. See for details."

Billy Currie of Ultravox's ARP Odyssey Sells for £8,500.00

"This is the one Billy bought in 1977. He used it back in 2012 on the Ultravox "Brilliant" album so it is in good working order.
He used it on all the Ultravox gigs and recordings and the Visage recordings. He used his softer signature sound on Visage "Fade To Grey" and Ultravox "Vienna".
He also used this ARP while working with Tubeway Army/Gary Numan. Live and the recordings "Living Ornaments 79 ".

Ensoniq EPS 16 Plus Rack

via this auction

"Here's a classic 90's sampler.. The precursor to the ASR series.. the legendary EPS16 Plus. This one is in FULL working condition... yes the disk drive is solid.. it was replaced with a NOS Ensoniq floppy drive last year ensuring years of use to come. Sample anything into this machine and its gold. Punchy, gritty, sweet tones abound. Plugs ins still don't do what this baby can do in the sound dept."

"Possum Electo-Music Evolution pinged by Maths EOC pulse, Maths envelope modulating Genus ("# of poles) with Control Forge pitch CV. With Echophon/Planar tomfoolery at 3:25."

Love how Rossum's new modules have the vintage E-Mu look to them - the knobs and blue on off-white gray.

John Carpenter - Christine (main theme, cover)

Published on May 28, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on

Lets just get this straight.. John Carpenter is my top inspiration, I can easily say if it was not for him I would not be the person I am today. The inspiration he has given me through his music and movies has undeniably set its marks on everything creative i do. I might not be a master movie director, but the music part is something i keep very close to my heart.

One of my favourite Carpenter themes is from the Movie Christine, problem with this is that I really like the movie soundtrack better than The Splash band versions of the track.. however there are some elements in the splash band version that works... so after 33 years of thinking about it, I finally decided to merge the elements i like the most and make a cover version :)

This is completely freeform and live straight to 2-track with no multitracking involved. Also i take a lot of liberties interpreting the melodies and time signatures .. see it as my hommage to the master of horror music !

Gear used: Nord lead A1, Reface CP (intro section) + Bluesky and particle delay on the CP. Braids in the modular plays the main sequence which gets some modulation from the maths + tides + keeley caverns reverb and delay. 0-coast adds a bassline which is washed with reverb in the elektron A4.. the A4 itself adds the classic 4:4 bass notes.. main theme melody is played on the KORG monologue. Drums from the TR-8.. thats it :)

Hope you like it! And also a big shout out to mr Carpenter, thank you for making all the movies and music over the years.. you are my hero !"
