Synthchaser #070 - Matrix's Oberheim OB-Xa Repair - Power Supply & Voice Card Rebuilds

Published on Jun 12, 2017 Synth Chaser

"In this video, I continue the repair of an OB-Xa for Matrix of We rebuild the power supply and voice cards, and get the synth in tune and sounding consistent from voice card to voice card. I also show you a common defect with the voice cards that prevents proper calibration.

Parts used in this video series are available at my website. I also repair and restore Oberheims and other vintage synths for customers around the world."

Part 1 here.

Paia Stringz N' Thingz

Published on Jun 12, 2017

via this auction

"Paia Stringz N' Thingz analog polyphonic string synthesizer from the 1970's This has the stereo add-on board. This synth was an early polyphonic model for Paia, and made use of the 50240 Top Octave Generator chip for the tones and the SAD-1024 bucket brigade analog delay for the chorusing. It has trememdous potential to be circuit bent, or restored to stock performance with very little effort. This will need cleaning of connectors, pots, and some alignment of the interior controls to bring it to its full potential. The C key 2nd from the top is intermittent when played. All other keys are fine. Looks like it was wired professionally, as opposed to the DIY version."

Published on Jun 12, 2017 once upon a synth

"How to make a pluck sound patch from scratch on the Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2 synthesizer. I go over two versions of the plucked sound, one paraphonic and another monophonic. In paraphonic mode we can play chords but we are limited to only one oscillator per note. We compensate for that by utilizing the sub octave oscillator and some modulation and effects. In monophonic mode we have 4 oscillators to play with so we can be a little more creative with the sound. I utilize a noise oscillator to add a bit more punch to the attack phase."

Published on Jun 12, 2017 Future Music Magazine

"Simon Arblaster and Si Truss unbox the brand new member of the Circuit family to see what lies within.

What is seemingly just the original Circuit with a Bass Station II bolted on the top, does have a few fine tricks up its sleeve.

In keeping with the original, Mono Station is quite the sequencing powerhouse. We explore its many tricks and some of the sounds you can expect from Novation’s latest groovebox."

Audio Damage Grind Coming to iPad?

via @chris.randall

"Sunday afternoon coding experiment."

Listen to the album "AD035 Grind Audio Demos" by Audio Damage.

Grind is currently available as a 32/64-bit VST and VST3, 64-bit AAX for Windows 8 or greater, and as a 32/64-bit AU/VST/VST3/AAX for OSX (10.8 or greater).

"A true powerhouse of audio warfare, Grind puts the 'damage' in Audio Damage. From subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion, Grind is a Swiss Army Knife of sound design.

Grind consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, in to algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter. The wavetable module uses the amplitude of the incoming signal to replace the sample with one from 15 different linearly-interpolated wavetables, chosen for their mangling potential. Window size and phase controls provide further tone-shaping possibilities.

The next stop is the algorithm module, with eleven different distortion and saturation algorithms, from simple soft-knee saturation on up to full on sine warping.

After this, the signal passes through a multi-mode filter stage, with eleven different filter models to choose from, including "vintage digital" versions from the early days of plugin development, on up to our modern analog-modeled MS20-style lowpass and highpass synth filters. A tempo-synced LFO provides motion for the filter frequency, and a final stage of soft clipping and DC filtering tames the output.

Make no mistake: this is not a subtle, polite tool. With careful tuning of the provided presets, it can be tamed to normal filtering and saturation duties, but on the whole, it is a noisy, snorting beast of a plug-in, and is happiest with Full Metal audio destruction."
