"Its been a while since I did something with the Pro2. This time out I play with the FM capabilities and the Super Saw. I really should focus on the digital wave forms and the morphing capability between them one week!"

Gothic Instruments Dronar Dark Synthesis Sound on Sound Demo & Review

You can find the full review on Sound on Sound here.

"Having designed their interesting Kontakt-based Dronar front-end, Gothic Instruments are now moving pretty quickly to provide users with a range of sample content (‘modules’) to exploit it. The subject of this review is the latest Dronar ‘module’, Dark Synthesis. Given the title, there are no prizes for guessing what the bulk of the 7GB of raw sample material is built upon."

Most of the content for Dronar Dark Synthesis was done by supporting MATRIXSYNTH Member, Adam Pietruszko of KNOBZ.NET.

Below is the official trailer video and details for Dronar Dark Synthesis.

MFB Dominion Club - Demo 2

Published on Sep 23, 2017 Cave Way

"I'm taking viewer questions, and making patches to cover different sonic territory. All sounds are from the Club. Presuming people are cool with it, and MFB doesn't send me a cease and desist, I'll keep it up :) One of the questions I got was can the Club make brass, stringy type sounds? The answer I feel is a resounding yes. A sound designer with more experience and time could really shape sounds much better, but this should give you a good idea before you buy. Have questions? let me know. Next on the list are Digi Osc exploration, How low can it go (sub bass), and ambient territories (self-generating patches)."

Vintage Moog Liberation Synthesizer SN 1271

via this auction

"If you want A true collectors item one of the original (Keytar) synths with that classic Moog sound this is it!

This is a Vintage Analog Monophonic/Polyphonic Synthesizer.

Features LFO with three selectable waves, aftertouch, that classic/famous Moog filter, filter and amp envelopes
attack, decay, release and sustain.

The Liberation features two monophonic voltage controlled oscillators and a polyphonic section that can play poly synth / organ sounds. Both oscillators can be set to triangle, sawtooth, or square waveforms and switched over a 3-octave range. The keyboard is aftertouch-sensitive and the neck features spring-loaded wheels for filter cutoff, modulation, and volume, as well as a ribbon controlled pitch bend. The Liberation has a single voltage-controlled filter and 2 ADSR envelope generators. A 40-foot cable connects the Liberation to its rack mounted half which houses the power supply and cv/gate output sockets.

This Moog Liberation synthesizer is in fairly good condition for its age. It does have surface wear like some scratches, and scuffs, but the keys are in great condition.

All functions and keys seem to respond as they should with one exception - The green volume slider cap is missing for Oscillator 1, and the volume slider only works when you set it in the near full on position, which may not be a big problem, but the volume slider fader for Oscillator 1 is showing signs of wear.

The ribbon controller, switches and wheels on the handle all seem to function fine.

- Power supply/ interface box
- 40' 6 pin XLR Cable that connects the keyboard to the power supply/interface box.
- A leather strap"

Moog Rogue Original ASTRA Synthesizer with Anvil Road Case SN 4411

via this auction

"This is the Rogue used by the progressive rock band ASTRA. It has toured Europe and can be heard on all of the albums. I am parting ways with it as the bands drummer and original owner of this amazingly robust synth. It is fully functional though the sliders could use a thorough cleaning. Included is the power supply and anvil road case."

Korg 800DV (Maxi-Korg Maxikorg) w/ Kenton 8-socket Kit, New Wood & Black Knobs & Sliders

via this auction

These usually have colored sliders and knobs. It looks pretty cool in all black.

"fully serviced Korg 800DV with custom Kenton 8-socket kit (provides cv/gate for upper and lower voice as well as CV control of both low pass and high pass filters). New wood case!

What's unique about this 800DV is that it has hardware from what seems to match the Korg 770. I don't know of any other 800DV out there quite like this one.

There is some wear on the face, but not severe.

Takes a few minutes for tuning to stabilize while synth warms up, but after that it's good to go.

Here's a rare opportunity for a serviced 800DV with extremely useful socket modification.

Check out this youtube to get an idea of what these can sound like with the Kenton modification!

Disassembled and scrubbed keybed and knobs/sliders

"This patch is about experimenting within the frame work of Genre. In this case some of the elements of house music. I wanted to keep the patch as a piece of house music but experiment within that using unusual timbre and movement not generally found within canonistic House."

MoPho, Machinedrum, Korg ESX, Novation Circuit + Roland TR-8 techno jam

Published on Sep 23, 2017 anode8

"I have some new tools in the arsenal that I'm beginning to explore, including the Elektron Machinedrum UW and the DSI MoPho, in adddition to the usual suspects of the Roland Tr-8, Novation Circuit, and Korg Electribe SX. In this video, the TR-8 is the master clock and provides hats, snare and ride, The Circuit is sequencing the MoPho plus adding some percucssion sounds and one layer of the kick, the Machinedrum is providing kick, hat, and some other percussion, and the Korg ESX is providing a layer of gritty percussion. Effects are from the Mackie ProFX12 mixer and the Zoom m50g pedal. I'll be investigating the mopho and machinedrum more in future videos, as I'm incredibly happy with the way those two sound right now. Thanks for watching!"

ELTA Music Polivoks FILTER - 2

Published on Sep 23, 2017 ELTA music

Note the Filter-2 was originally featured in June, that video was removed, as in previous ELTA music posts. Hopefully this one will stay up. If not, watch it now, before it's gone.

Love the look of the white one.

via ELTA Music

"The Polivoks Filter, from Elta Music, utilizes the classic Soviet filter chip for a unique and iconic filter tone. It provides both CV and Expression pedal inputs, built in LFO, and WOB fader for ultimate control. On board LFO has a fast/slow range switch, and on/off. Separate LFO OUT can be used to control external CV devices. With lowpass, bandpass, highpass, and notch filter types, one can shape tones into whole new realms. The pedal is switched on with a switch, rather than a stomp button, catering towards use as a desktop filter.

Multimode Polivoks Filter
Four Filter Types
Low Pass
Band Pass
High Pass
Built-in multiwave LFO Generator
Wob Fader cutoff manipulator
External CV input for Filter Frequency control
Expression pedal input
