Shpalmers Vacay Jam

"Went on vacation, it was 120 degrees. I made this while trying to keep my family alive."

With the Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16 sampling workstation.

ARP Odyssey MkII 2810 w/4035 filter, CV/Gate SN 0290

via this auction

"Rarest of the Odyssey versions with "4035" filter -- apparently they had to change the filter due to patent issues with Moog because of the ladder topology. While it doesn't sound like a Minimoog it does sound very close to the "4012" filter on the standard (black/grey) 2600, with a nice round, musical resonance and great bass response at zero resonance.

Has factory CV/gate interface for integration into the modern studio (apparently standard for the first time with MkII, the white/MkI units generally did not have this)."

Novation Peak Presets Demo With Some Filter And Effect Tweaking

Published on Jun 20, 2017 Perfect Circuit Audio

"In this video we go through a few presets on the new Novation Peak Synthesizer. We play around with the arpeggiator, filter and effects as well. The filter is a 12 or 24db/octave lowpass, highpass or bandpass type and the effects include pre and post filter drive/distortion, chorus, delay and reverb.

Novation's Peak is an eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer that is one of the most exciting multi-voice synth releases of 2017. Containing three newly designed Oxford Oscillators for each voice, the Peak Synthesizer has a built-in resonant multi-mode analog filter for each individual voice and three distortion points in the analog chain: pre-filter, post-filter and global. It's great for both sound designers and EDM artists because it offers a wide range of tone from melodic to abstract. With a 16-slot matrix modulation assignment, three ADSR envelopes, high quality effects and a built-in arpeggiator, Novation's Peak is great for both live performance and studio work.

Siel DK600 Analog Synthesizer w/ Case, Cassette & Manual

via this auction

"There is no issue with a leaking battery. The previous owner replaced the on-board battery with an off-board battery pack that uses 4 AA batteries (see the last picture in the gallery). Not only does this remove the risk of damaging the circuit board, it also provides reliable, long lasting memory. I've used the same batteries for up to 2 years at a time."

Moog Minitaur Classic Leads in SPACE 2017 Analog Synthesizer Minimoog Rik Marston

Published on Jun 19, 2017 SynthgodXXX

"Moog Minitaur 'Classic Leads in SPACE' 2017
Synthesizer Demo by Rik Marston
**Watch in HD** **100% No talking!!**

People have said "Well I was in the shop & I wanted
a Moog synthesizer for the more Classic Moog Lead
sound and all they had left was the Moog Minitaur Bass
synthesizer in stock so I decided to wait & shop online..."
I usually giggle and say these magic words to them...
"The Minitaur can do that, too!!!" So just in case you were
told or programmed that the Minitaur is just a BASS SYNTH,
Surprise! It's NOT! Well it's supposed to be.. but Version 2
makes the Minitaur a pretty versatile little analog monster!!
Most people are astonished on how many LEADS are in the
unit upon arrival. All very nice and very MOOG. Plus MORE!
I love the Moog Minitaur, every studio should have one just
in case they need a seriously awesome synth to cut in the
mix for BASS, LEADS or anything!!
Fantastic, Reliable, Classic.
It's a MOOG, of course!!!!!!

Recorded into a classic ART Multiverb LT
(Delay & Reverb) then into Ableton Live

Thank you for watching!!"

ARP Odyssey 2800 and Mirano 3R - Synthesizer & Tape Echo Demo

Published on Jun 20, 2017 Soundgas

"Five minutes' wrestling with the wild beast that is the Arp Odyssey 2800 - this one serviced and modded with CV/Gate/Ext inputs and switchable mono/duophonic modes (available now on
The excellent Mirano 3R is providing some overdrive and echo/ambience. The 3R is Japan's answer to Italy's Binson Echorec: an all-valve echo unit with Magic Eye indicator valve (though it uses a tape loop rather than the Binson drum).
A lovely combination..."

Erica Synths - Black VC EG *First Patch*

Published on Jun 20, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's the Erica Synths Black VC EG (voltage controlled envelope generator). It's a full four stage envelope / ADSR with CV over each stage. The expander allows for gate outputs for each stage, bipolar outs and inverted versions too. The log/expo mode is snappy and great for percussive patching while the linear mode goes longer and smoother."

Atlantis | Eurorack Ambient

Published on Jun 20, 2017 Björn Bommersheim

"A tribute to Mark Harris and the Intellijel Atlantis module. I satisfied my lust for a roland sh synth voice and went for the awesome intellijel atlantis. Somehow a sh 101 in an eurorack module with a hell alot of patch points. So this patch is mainly influenced by the intellijel atlantis and its sound.

Enjoy and leave your thoughts ...

Sequential Circuits Six-Trak SN 001815

via this auction

"One of the great synths of the 80's. This is a six voice polyphonic beast, with the ability to stack all six to really put it into beast mode! Huge and fat. Sequencer is a great touch and you have the ability to play the other voices over it. Lots of presets as well. Overall is in great shape with no issues. All buttons, knobs, keys, and wheels work great. Cosmetically looks very nice as well. A couple scratches here and there and along the side panels, but nothing major at all. It's all ready to go and just begging to be played ;)"

New Roland Boutique SE-02 Analog Synthesizer - Designed by Studio Electronics

Published on Jun 20, 2017 RolandChannel

I believe discussions on the joint project began two years ago back at NAMM 2015. While there, I ran into Studio Electronics at the Moog booth who asked me to please keep it under wraps for obvious reason. Yes I can keep a secret. It's great to see this collaboration come to life. Congrats to both Studio Electronics and Roland!

Update: price is apparently only $499.

"The Roland SE-02 Analog Synthesizer is a collaborative effort from Roland and Studio Electronics, that uses authentic discrete circuitry to create an analog synth with a distinctly American sound.

The Roland SE-02 synthesizer has all of the warm, rounded bass tones and smooth, glassy leads that you would expect from its all-analog architecture.

But a new generation of synthesists, producers and musicians requires a new sound, and the Roland SE-02 goes far beyond into inspiring sonic territories.

Explore the power of its performance sequencer, over 500 expertly-crafted preset patches, its complex oscillator and filter modulations with XMOD and FEEDBACK, and in-built delay. Discover thick textures, percussive patches and ethereal effects for a whole new dimension to a classic sound.

The Roland SE-02 Analog Synthesizer is the first product in the new Roland Boutique Designer Series. This series, debuting in a partnership with Studio Electronics, a leader in excellence and ingenuity in analog synthesizer design since 1988.
