"Sequential SPLIT-EIGHT 'Pads, Sweeps & Tweaks' 2017
Synthesizer Demo by Rik Marston
** Watch in HD** **100% NO TALKING!!**

Here is the third video demonstration of the super
RARE Sequential SPLIT-EIGHT 8 voice / VCO analog
synthesizer. (Don't forget to check out my other
Sequential SPLIT-EIGHT synthesizer video demos!)
I am sooo loving it's character, I really can make some
close John Carpenter synthesizer sounds with this,
(The Thing, Escape from New York, ETC.) It's better
than my old PROPHET-600 (non-modded) did at it as
a matter of fact!!! I'd love a newly upgraded Sequential
Hum.... I'd LOVE a Sequential Prophet-6 even more!!!!!!!
Anyways, here are a few demos of the "Hollow Pad"
sound, a Jupiter-like sweep sound, a Funky Bass line
tweaked into oblivion & a Trance Pad... or whatever
the kids are calling it today... LOL!

Recorded into Ableton Live 7 with Simple GROOVE Delay

Thank you for watching!

Dreadbox Abyss - Twiddling With and Exploring the Sounds

Published on Jun 10, 2017 ProckGnosis

"WARNING: a bit lengthy listen to the Dreadbox Abyss, 4-voice analog(ue) synthesizer (I tried to cut the length down, but obviously failed). This is NOT a review, and there's no talking past the introduction. It's basically a big sound sampler focusing on chords, with a bit of lead and bass thrown in as well.

When it comes to synths, this thing is retro-in-a-box. And I'm talking sound most of all. And in case you were wondering, the opening ProckGnosis theme for this video was done only with the Abyss and some VST drums.

Top 4 things I've discovered so far:
- If you want that "Boards of Canada" drifting oscillator sound (more recently overexposed in the "Stranger Things" soundtrack), this thing nails it
- The hybrid delay really does create a great chorus effect (the Erebus should be able to do this too, but I've never tried)
- Just a touch of "drive" on the VCA helps make the sound even more classic and...uh...not sure really, but I describe it as "dirty" in the video
- The selection of variable wave shapes sort of pushes this into OB6 territory, and being able to easily modulate the waves really pumps some life into the sound

Again, hats off to Dreadbox for this kind of stuff. I said somewhere, yeah, it's just a synthesizer, but they do it just a little bit differently, and that really makes it something more unique in the field of synths. Cheers!"

Moog Model 15 Berlin School sequence demo

Dreampipe Electronium Online Browser Based Synth

This one in via J T. It's a bit like an online Korg KAOSS Pad.

Click through to give it a try:

"The idea was to make something relatively complex as accessible and immediate as possible, thus there are only two levels of interaction: tapping the 'randomise sound' generates new patches; dragging on the canvas alters the frequencies of the 3 oscillators (x axis controls osc 1 + 2, y axis controls osc 3) . The output of each oscillator controls the frequency of the next oscillator in the chain apart from the third, which is connected to the audio output. This is by no means a serious piece of music production software, but rather something fun and easy to interact with. Hope you like.
And yes, the name is a reference to Raymond Scott."

Gnarly Akai AX60 VCO modulation to VCF

Published on Jun 10, 2017 zibbybone

"The underrated Akai AX60 is one of the few polysynths that allow you to modulate the VCF with the VCO. The AX60 is in UNISON mode with its arpeggiator triggered by Kawai R-100 drum machine. Filmed with iPhone 6s using Roland Go:Mixer interface."

Korg DW-8000 Programmable Digital Waveform Synthesizer SN 017212

via this auction

"Key weight is missing (see photo). You can't really tell when you're playing, in my opinion.
I replaced the "tune" slide potentiometer. The metal post on the new one had to be trimmed to fit the cap. After doing this it was a little bit wobbly, so I gave it a drop of superglue to make it tight. The 'Unison 2' LED is broken. It still lights up, but the tip is broken off so it doesn't stick up as much as the other ones (see photo). The number buttons to change patches/parameters tend to double click when you press them hard. I've noticed this on other Korgs from this era. It's totally usable, you just have to get used to get used to it. Generally the keys are a little loud, physically. I think that's just how these units are. THINGS I DID NOT TEST (because I am unable): Portamento Jack, Program Up Jack, To/From Tape Jacks"

late night modular patch (mutable instruments, make noise, intellijel)

Published on Jun 10, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on

Before I started to tear down yesterday's patch I wanted to do a modular only freestyle jam on it.. some additions of a kick drum and even more chopped up samples in the morphagene turned it into a different tune really :) This modular stuff is fun!

Main sound sources are MI braids + 0-coast and the morphagene, braids is modulated by the maths, tides and sequenced by the beat step pro, filter in the 7U is ripples and uVCA from intellijel. 0-coast is standalone and is only sequenced by the beat step.

Kick drum and snare are from the peaks, triggered by the best step in a random fashion :)

FX, EQD space spiral and reverb from the Keeley caverns + some random reverb washes in the Elektron Analog four (not in picture) for the 0-coast.

But now, all patch cables are out... new sounds for the next run! :D

Enjoy, BooM!"

Tenori Sounds by Marcus Padrini

Hello Modor: unboxing the Modor NF-1m

Published on Jun 10, 2017 Olivier Ozoux

"While everyone else at Superbooth 2017 seemed to only be interested in the Elektron Digitakt, This is the synth that caught my ears. I really liked the original Modor NF-1 but it was just too big. It's little brother uses exactly the same sound engine, and trades a few knobs for a much smaller footprint, and a 50% price reduction...

Here's a first sound exploration out of the box, from the default init patch."
