Giant Yellow Beast Waldorf Q Vintage Synthesizer

I feel like this warrants a "You know you are old if..." joke.

"You know you are old if your gut response is 'What?! that's not vintage!'?"

"You know you are old if you were on Sonic State's "The Gas Station" forum anticipating the release of the Waldorf Q."

"You know you are old when you start seeing 'Ancient' as the label for actual vintage synths."

CMS 2607 live 2 track demo - "Ruination"

Published on Sep 29, 2017 Phil Cirocco

"This is a quick demo I quickly made using:
6 CMS 2607 rack mount synthesizers, 2 Roland MPU-101 MIDI converters and 1 TR-808 analog drum machine (upgraded by CMS).
The 2607 is an updated and miniaturized version of the ARP 2600. I only had approx 1 day to record this and some photos before I disassembled the rack. The customers were waiting for their instruments. Go to for more info. The synths are mounted in a vintage Emcor rack cabinet similar to those used in vintage sci-fi movies and TV."

Roland Boutique SH-01A sound demo

Published on Sep 29, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

I have had the privilege to try out the new Roland Boutique SH-01A boutique synth. I have never owned an SH-101 myself, I have played them a couple times but not really spent any significant amount of time with them the last 15-20 years or so.

I know this is a classic synth, and I can understand why because this puppy just screams to be played and sequenced to the max and it sounds really really great.

A few words on the video/demo format. There are loads and loads of videos and demos out there already, and my take on this noodle sound demo session is to show you a bit how i work with synths when designing sounds. So there will not just be dry signals, you will hear and see some of my favorite effects paired up with the SH-01A whenever I find a sound that works for me.

So no deep dive into features, it is just me playing and the SH-01A doing what it does best, eg being really fun and inspiring synth.

Yes ! it is both monophonic, polyphonic AND you can run all voices in unison for some extra wide and fat leads. I don't do unison in this video though since it was way too loud, sorry for that.. but trust me, its fat :D

I tried to blend the playing with FX to a level so that the dry parts were audible as well, but as you know i like my FX so it tends to be a bit more wet at times :) If you have any questions let me know.

FX (from left to right, connected in series) .. audio out from SH01A in mono to SolidGoldFX imperial (fuzz), EarthQuakerDevices Space spiral (modulated delay), Catalinbread CSIDMAN (granular delay), tc electronic ditto X2 (looper), Strymon el Capsitan (tape echo), Strymon blueSky (reverb) -- to mixer and 2 track. The track is slightly normalized to keep some of the peaks under control, else what you see is what you hear.

Moog 907A Fixed Filter Bank: individual filters output

Published on Sep 29, 2017 Roberto Raineri-Seith

"In this demo i'm raising and lowering individually and in progressive order the single band pass filters (frequencies: 250, 350, 500, 700, 1000, 1400, 2000, 2800 Hz) to show their individual characteristics.
The low pass shelf filter (aka "Kuhschwanzfilter") is always set to 5 (mid position), the high pass shelf filter from fully closed to fully open at the beginning and at the end of the demo.
Delay (TC Electronics D-Two) and reverb (Vermona DSR-3) added."

Synthchaser #080 - ARP Odyssey Crazy Oscillator Repair

Published on Sep 29, 2017 Synth Chaser

"This was such a cool problem I edited some video I shot for the customer into a synthchaser video. Customer was reporting his Oscillator 2 couldn't be calibrated and was drifting. The trimmer should be adjusted to make a 20Hz square wave, but the lowest it would go was 40Hz. So he sent in his oscillator board and I put it in one of my Odysseys and this is what I saw!

Parts for DIY repair and restoration of ARP synthesizers are available at my website. I also repair and restore ARPs and other vintage synths for customers around the world."

Conductive Labs NDLR Demo #1 (in two parts)

Published on Sep 29, 2017 Genshi Media Group

"This is my first encounter with the Conductive Labs 'The NDLR' (pronounced noodler). The guys at Conductive Labs (who had previously seen my demo videos here on Youtube, and had attended a couple of my live performances) asked if I would run one of their prototype NDLRs through it's paces... and of course, how could I resist! This is still a beta unit; some features have not yet been implemented (such as the LFO section) but hopefully these series of quick demos will give you all an idea of what the NDLR can do in a musical context. I only have it for a week before I have to give it back, so I will be doing as much as I can while I have it...

In this Demo #1 I have the NDLR Paired with the Waldorf Blofeld. Since the Blofeld is Multitimbral, it's quite easy to have the NDLR play the various parts on the Blofeld. A perfect example of the ultimate minimal setup for live jams!

In the next, forthcoming Demo #2, I will have the NDLR play a Korg Minilogue (for the PAD) and three Moog Mother-32s. I will also dive deeper into the Menu system.

In Demo #3, it will be the NDLR with the Moog Sub 37, ARP Odyssey, Waldorf Microwave XTk and the Micro Q!

Please support these guys on Kickstarter to make this project happen, I really want to see this get out into the world!"

"The aim was to create a pack where each sound can be tweaked to get the most out of the 64 patch slots. Patches 1-32 are more unique in their macro layout and the sound types are varied whereas the patches 33-64 have more of a standard feel to them to give you a broad sound palette to work with. Patches 33-64 can be shaped using macro knob 5 to switch between different oscillator settings which will give the patches different character. Macro knob 8 was used for distortion which in turn was tweaked to add character and variation to the sounds.


64 Circuit patches + BONUS patches!

64 carefully selected drum samples from the Sonic Treats series. All are sampled from the Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine and processed.

1x FULL pack file for Components with sessions, samples & patches

1x 64 patches Components file

1x 64 drum samples Components file

1x 16 sessions Components file
