This one in via Brian Comnes who had the following to say:

"This is a video summary of the August 5 Southern Oregon Synth Meetup in the VIP lounge of the old Ashland Armory, There were nine attendees with a wide range of synth sounds. This was a first meetup and was considered a success by all. We will meet again in early November.

Video produced with permission to share by Bart Hawkins, a veteran film and video producer from Grants Pass Oregon."

Sampl35 - Fairlight CMI III MFX 2

100 Things I Do
Published on Aug 12, 2017

"I was asked a few weeks ago to try doing something a little more 'modern' sounding with the Farlight. I think no matter how many times I watch the Deadmau5 master class, EDM is just not a style that I can produce LOL. Hopefully this is sorta close to modern in the 90's way :D

I used a few of Cuckoo's Continuum samples (which I reprocessed before sampling) and took a lot of samples from my video from a few months back about 'The Mangle' plugin synth. All sampled into the Fairlight then played back."

Oberheim OB-8 Vintage Synthesizer + DX Drum Machine

"Drum Machine comes with extra EPROM CHIPS with other instrumental sounds. Some of the pads on the Drum Machine need cleaning, but work great! Both come 'AS IS' and the drum machine is a bonus item to the OB-8! Both items have been very well maintained in a climate controlled recording studio."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #33: Akai Miniak - Song 1

Christian's Sonic Spaces
Published on Aug 12, 2017

"This is my first song with the Akai Miniak. It's a virtual analog synth identical to the Alesis Micron, a cut-down version of the Alesis Ion synth. So let's see how good it is for ambient;-)

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
Miniak - Elektron Analog Heat - Boss Tera Echo - TC Electronic Mimiq - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - DigiTech Polara. The used fx varied depending on the recorded track.

The signal goes via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc.

To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with just a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)"

"A quick show and tell. I'm going on a family vacation (hometown: Santos, Brazil) and needed a very small and portable system to complement the 0 Coast. This is what I came up with ! Turns out the 2017 ipad box is the perfect size for some short rails, skiff friendly modules and a small PSU. Stay tuned for a little bit of Brazilian Travel Blogging for the next two weeks :)"

Kurzweil K2VX (K2000) Synth/Sampler Maxed Out w/ Extras

via this auction

"Extremely powerful 61-key digital synth, sampler, and sequencer

Very clean and working with:
- 64MB Sampling RAM (max)
- Latest OS 3.87
- Sampling Option installed
- PRAM expansion
- Orchestral & Contemporary ROM sound sets
- 5 factory disks + 1 blank
- nearly brand new USB floppy drive
- original Power cable and foot-switch

**It is missing the battery backup cover on the bottom, but the batteries stay in just fine if the keyboard stays put. A solution I've found is a small bit of strong, residue free Gaffer tape to hold them in place. Also, these batteries backup the user preset RAM, not factory ROM, and aren't necessary if user patches are saved to floppy disk**"

Original Mark 1 Octave CAT Model 1853 SN A1955

via this auction

"Original Mark 1 Octave CAT Model 1853 analogue synthesizer. Serviced and in perfect working order.

It's possible to lose hours investigating what one of these can do - a very inspiring synth and one of our favourites. It's Duophonic so you can play a bass/drone note and tap out a lead line as well - very effective.

This synth is in excellent cosmetic condition for its age. Inevitably for an instrument that's 30-plus years old there are a few scuffs and marks but nothing major. See detailed photos for more information. Three knobs are not original and two more are missing the tops. It is possible to obtain replacements although none were available when we had the unit serviced. If the buyer requires this then we will look into it.

These classic US synths are vastly underrated and represent excellent value for money compared to their more famous rivals, the Minimoog and Arp Odyssey. They are hard to find, and highly-rated by synth cognoscenti. The flexible nature of this synth means it really punches above its weight: particularly notable features are the cross modulation options and mixable waveforms. It dates from the mid to late 70s and sounds like a classic 70s American monosynth should: powerful and tonally brilliant. Sound design-wise it's almost limitless with an abundance of bass, leads, and sound effects on tap - it's easy (and very rewarding) to lose yourself for hours programming this beast..."
