Vintage Moog "The Source" Synthesizer 1983 SN 2720

via this auction

"This is a great example of a fully working Moog Source synthesizer. The memory battery was replaced less than a year ago and the synthesizer under went a complete calibration to factory specs while at the shop. The only issue I can see is it's missing two screws in the lower back. They help support the bottom panel. I never got around to replacing them because it didn't bother me. It looks good for it's age and shows the normal wear. The wood looks really nice and the membrane is in great shape too. I am including a power cord and the original users manual."

Giana 64: Commodore 64 Keytar Published on Feb 25, 2010

"A quick demo of a keytar I built out of a Commodore 64. It uses two SID 6581 chips and was made using the Midibox Sid platform from Better video to follow later." See here.

via this auction

"Up for auction is a unique electronic musical instrument, The Giana 64. Giana is a custom MidiBox SID v2 built into a keytar form-factor using an original Commodore 64 case for the body. The build includes several unique additions to the standard Midibox SID, including an assignable ribbon controller, expression pedal input, CV inputs, and of course the integrated keybed. A full MidiBox SID control surface is integrated into the neck.

I built Giana in the winter of 2010. It was a true labor of love, being one of the first large-scale electronics projects I ever worked on. The first video I posted of Giana went quasi-viral (by 2010 standards) and was covered by numerous synth blogs including Synthtopia; as far as I know it remains the only MIDIbox SID ever built into a keytar form-factor.

I tried to design it to look a little like a ghostbusters proton pack—some of the “retrofited” elements, like the rainbow ribbon cable running across the exterior, are not actually functional, but were fit for a hax00ry, cyberpunk vibe.

The instrument can be used flat on a table, or worn upright using the built-in strap buttons. The entire system is mounted onto a single piece of solid wood, and the plastic components are attatched with metal hardware, making it quite sturdy / gig-able.

Please note that for aesthetic purposes, the majority of the controls have been left unlabeled. The neck layouts are uniquely spaced, so that with a little practice all the major functions can be easily memorized. A PDF will also be provided labeling each function, to be used in combination with the official Midibox SID user manual.

MIDI Box SID V2 including standard MIDI I/O
Full control surface including mod matrix
Dual 6581 SIDs in stereo configuration, hand matched for similar filter characteristics
Integrated keyboard
Assignable ribbon controller (range-centered for use with pitch bend)
3 assignable CV inputs, 0-5V range, diode protected (plug and play with Euro modular)
Assignable expression pedal input
Custom power supply (not a recycled c64 PSU) provides robust power
Ships in custom case with custom foam inserts (see pictures—adapted from a rifle case)

Included Items:
Giana 64 Keytar
Custom PSU
Custom Carrying case
Moog EP-2 expression pedal
Rainbow guitar strap
Interface guide PDF

The instrument is in excellent condition, having been privately owned for 7 years, with about 3 of those years spent in storage. In preparation for the auction I tested every function and all systems are nominal. Since this is a DIY project however, the instrument is being sold as-is. Potential buyers should understand the responsibility that comes with owning a DIY instrument.

The pictures were taken a few days ago and reflect the present condition of the instrument. The linked youtube videos were recorded back when the instrument was first built. Not much has changed since then except for a few minor chips in the paint."

Inside the Percussa Engine Wavetable Oscillator with 3D Morphing

Published on Jul 16, 2017 PERCUSSA

"Quick demo of the 3D Morphing/modulation capabilities of the Percussa Engine Synthesizer's Wavetable Oscillator. In the video you can see multiple wavetable oscillators (orange) modulated by multiple LFOs (green). The LFOs modulate the X, Y and Z of the wavetable oscillators. X, Y and Z are used to 'navigate' the 3D space of waves, automatically generated from any WAV file, by cutting it up using the 'nr of waves' knob. The Percussa Engine synth is part of Synthor System 8, a digital wireless modular synth, and the basis for an eurorack module currently in development at Percussa. More info at"

"As you probably already know, the Oberheim SEM sound is strong and powerful used on so many historic recordings. This Telemark delivers that classic sound with modern stability and way more modulation routing tan the original SEM. Amazing for atmospheres, pads, the weirdest efx but also surpasses the competition at basses and leads. This Telemark will make a great addition to any stage or studio."

When all else fails...

Published on Jul 16, 2017 Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"A little musical exploration in the studio on a gloomy Sunday afternoon, with the Eurorack modular system keeping me happily distracted :-)

Tech notes if you are curious - Intellijel Metropolis is the engine driving the melodies, with the Verbos Complex Oscillator and Furthrrr Generator Oscillator creating the melodies. These are filtered through a Cwejman DMF-2 Filter, a Doepfer A-124 Wasp Filter, and Schippmann VCF-02. The Furthrrr Generator runs through the 2hp Freez to offer up these tricky little melodic runs. The percussion comes from the TipTop Audio ONE sampler. A Rebel Technology Χρόνος modulates the Verbos timbre. The random radio samples appear live from the Befaker ARRadio, and everything is mixed into the Intellijel Linix and Mutamix. The reverb is in the DAW itself, Ableton Live, a combination of AudioDamage EOS and Soundtoys Echoboy."

upbeat modular jam session (mutable instrument rings, braids + friends)

Published on Jul 16, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

I recently got the Mutable instrument rings for my modular and I wanted to give it an upbeat techno-style run.. or something :D This little module has some really nice textures and timbres which are very suitable for my style of music ! In the modular you also hear the MI braids, doing a stab style sequence... both are controlled by the arturia beatstep pro in a semi random fashion. (40% random, 50% probability)

I recorded maybe 4-5 takes altogether, this being the best one.. still the vocal sample might be a little bit loud when playing all by itself in the intro section.. but hey, we need to hear what she says right? :)

The KORG volca does the low end bass, KORG monologue and TB-3 works together to create the top line bass + the dreadbox a bit later in the tune. Elektron does some extra percussions + some weird ack style sounds + the really angry metal style stabs later on.

Gear used:

Current Intellijel 7U rack:

Sounds, Braids 3x SAW + rings (through the morphagene for some reversy / glitch processing). Elektron Analog Four, KORG volca bass x2, keys and fm, dreaedbox erebus, TB-3, KORG monologue and the TR-8.

FX, kaoss pad (samples etc), ms-70 CDR on keys and the second bass, earthquaker devices space spiral, transmisser and keeley engineering caverns on the modular.

I hope you like it !

BooOooM !"

Rheyne - Sequenced Jam #44 (Moog DFAM, Mother-32, Make Noise Eurorack)

Published on Jul 16, 2017 Rheyne

"Sounds from a Moog​ DFAM, bass from 2x Mothers-32 an octave apart, and an arpeggio from a Make Noise​ DPO processed in stereo via a modDemix and Rosie, triggered by a Mother-32 sequencer. Noise from the Mothers is used for the hihats and snare, by triggering the VCA input on a Dave Smith Instruments​ Curtis Filter and a Make Noise Optomix with the Make Noise Tempi. The switch from a muted to unmuted state on the Tempi is controlled off-camera with an offset from the 0-Coast."

Night Stalker - Teenage Engineering OP-1

Published on Jul 16, 2017 Todd Smith Music


This video contains a little song I started on the Teenage Engineering OP-1. I made this song walking around at night, hence the name. 🙃

The Teenage Engineering OP-1 is a mobile powerhouse, taking care of all synths, drums, samples and recording. The fact the Teenage Engineering OP-1 has a 10+ hour battery life blows my mind.

I'll work on this concept more and try to evolve a full track, I really enjoy the early results."
