"An in-depth synth studio and office tour of Dave Smith Instruments (DSI) in San Francisco, California -- including the DSI synthesizer showroom, Dave Smith's office and personal synth collection, and walk-through of the Dave Smith Instruments office.

Join me on this fantastic journey into Dave Smith Instruments' headquarters, alongside DSI's own Carson Day. Carson was kind enough to provide an amazing synthesizer studio and DSI office tour, and gives in-depth commentary on the history of Sequential Circuits, Dave Smith Instruments and their synths throughout.

Huge thanks to DSI for allowing me to visit the office on a recent trip to San Francisco. Cheers guys!

Sequential Prophet VS - Rüdiger Gaenslen favourite custom patches

Published on Jul 21, 2017 Rüdiger Gaenslen

"Sequential Prophet VS Digital Vector Synthesizer from 1986.

Recorded pure without any mastering, FX, EQ and anything else.

It is a hybrid synthesizer with 128 digital waveshapes (also basic waves for analog stuff) and analog curtis filter. It has 4 oscillators, you can mix with a vector stick and controll the mix with a envelope. You can save this mix as a new wave in ROM and create really fantastic and never heard sounds.

Further Infos to the Prophet VS and review:

The Prophet VS in this video has some mods from Syntthaste, Martin Höwner, in Bochum, Germnay. It has a new Fatar keyboard with velocity and aftertouch, a new PSU and new buttons, also an OLED Display.

Most of the sounds in this Demo are no factory sounds. They are my favourite custom sounds.

The VS is quite easy to program and you also can use hardware controller like stereoping or software controller like vector surgeon.

Actually it is my favourite synth, I even prefer him over my Prophet 5, Jupiter 8 and OBXa, because you can create extremely powerful analog sounding classic patches and very cold sounding mallets, bells, whistles and choirs. It is the best hybrid synthesizer ever IMO.

I hope, you enjoy the sounds and the video. I didnt use any effects, mastering, eq, its just pure VS in stereo directly into the audio interface. Cheers, Ruediger

Audio Damage Replicant 2 Now Available

via Audio Damage

"One of the original buffer effects, and still one of the best. Version 2 adds the Stutter effect, for further divisions of the loop. It's like glitch-ception! From a simple delay or panning effect, on up to massive random beat mangling, Replicant is a capable plugin well in line with today's electronic music styles. Stuttering buffers and filter drops are easy to program, and the comprehensive randomization features give it a mind of its own, if so desired. If you're looking to add some chance to your production, you've come to the right place!"

Sub Focus - In The Studio

Published on Jul 20, 2017 FACTmagazine

"See the rave master at work.

Nick Douwma, better known as Sub Focus, has been creating drum ‘n’ bass tracks since the early ‘00s and is synonymous with the genre.

In 2005, he scored a number one single in the UK dance chart with 'X-Ray' and since then has been producing across multiple genres, while also building up his hardware collection, which includes everything from vintage synths to custom modular rigs.

We caught up with Sub Focus in his north London studio to get the lowdown on how he builds his signature tracks."

1977 Multivox Pulser Dual Voice Synthesizer MX-75 SN 69107

via this auction

"This is the Multivox MX-75 Dual Voice Synthesizer, also known as the Hillwood Pulser M75 Dual Voice Synthesizer.

Unlike other Multivox/Hillwood synths you never seem to see the rare MX-75 for sale.

The Hillwood Pulser was developed and built by Hillwood (aka Firstman) in Japan. These synths were then rebadged as Multivox and sold in America. This is a very early example: the Multivox name was on stickers placed over the Pulser name on the front and back; later examples had Multivox painted directly onto the case. On this one someone peeled the Multivox sticker off the back revealing the original Pulser name (the Multivox sticker on the front remains). More evidence of this being a very early model is that the information on the model/serial # plate on the back is hand-written.

This synth has some scratches on the case but other than that is all-original and in 100% working condition. It sounds amazing."

Korg SIGMA KP-30 Vintage Analog Synthesizer SN 0167

via this auction

"There were only 1,000 of these made in 1979, with each units having its serial number plate on the front panel. This one has a serial # 0167.

The unit appears to be working fine functionally, all the keys and knobs and switches working well as being tested. Maybe a slight scratch noise on some of the knobs when controlling, which could probably do with some adjustment/servicing if required.

Cosmetically its in very nice condition as you can see..."

Frozen Dairy Dessert (Milkshake) | Octatrack & Modular Synth

Published on Jul 21, 2017 Dusty Patches

"Composed on Eurorack modular synth and sampled into the Octatrack. I began by creating chord progressions with Ornament & Crime Acid Curds, Pressure Points, and four voices from the modular. After this first layer of sounds, I made a few percussion tracks on the OT and chopped up the vocal sample.

Next I patched up the Vermona QMI2 to have the OT MIDI sequence three voices from the modular for live synth goodness. The voices are Loquelic Iteritas - bass, Braids into Clouds - wavetable synth, and Ataxaric Translatron - arcade synth.

The whole audio stream is pumped out of the OT and back into the modular synth for effects processing via fxbox and Pressure Points."

Published on Jul 21, 2017 Comparative Irrelevance

"A quick little jam, playing around with integrating my Sub Phatty with the modular. I absolutely love the round, punchy sounds of the Phatty, but it obviously lacks the sequencer of its bigger brother. No problem at all when you have a little eurorack at hand!

Here are some abbreviated patch notes (not going too deep into this one, there's nothing particularly out-of-the-ordinary going on here. If you have any questions about the patch, leave them in the comments!):

In the rack:
Braids and Rings are both sequenced by the Sum output from Maths' cycling functions. You may have seen me play around with that concept in the 3 Modules series. Here, without any module restrictions, I've expanded on it a little: The Sum output is sent through Noise Tools' S&H, and then into the µScale. One output from µScale is sent to Braids, and the other (which is transposed via the Shift input) is sent to Rings.

Branches is used to make some gaps in between the sequence triggers, creating some space in the arrangement.

The outputs from the sound sources are mixed together, and then processed with Clouds at the end of the chain. Clouds' is in the default mode.

Sub Phatty:
The SP is being sequenced by the Brain Seed, which is clocked by the Noise Tools. The same clock signal is used to drive everything in the rack as well, so everything is nicely synced up.

Thank you for watching!"
