"Tidal Waves" - electronic theme with DotCom modular, Korg 01/W, TR-505, Polara, Dan-Echo

Published on Sep 30, 2017 SynthMania

"A typical synthmania-style jam recorded in real time to simple two-track stereo. When I have a chance I'll re-record it properly in separate multi tracks with studio effects. Powerful modular bass & lead, trance-inducing high string pad, good sounds in combination- overall, a haunting track. The key is Gmin. The tempo is 96bpm.

Gear used and technical data: modular split:
- 3 osc bass (Saw32' + Saw16' + Saw16' thru Q107)
- 3 osc lead (Pulse16' + Saw8' + Ramp8' thru Q150)

Roland TR-505:
- bass and snare only; the muted rim triggers the dotcom bass line

Korg 01/W FD pad: 'A18 Tidal Wave'

DigiTech Polara modulated reverb is applied to both the TR-505, and to the dotcom lead, utilizing stereo/dual mono inputs/outputs

Danelectro Dan-Echo delay is applied to the dotcom bass line.

Roland JU-06 Noodle

Published on Sep 30, 2017 100 Things I Do

"A very quick noodle with the Roland JU-06. I had an original Juno-106 for many years. Its lush chorus was and is so unique anything you use it on instantly has that Juno sound. Unfortunately my Juno 106 suffered dead Oscillator IC's at a time where replacements were becoming very hard to find (lucky Roland Australia still had some in stock the early 2000's). I decided to move it on while it still worked and invest in something modern and digital which seemed the correct decision at the time!

These days with the modern IC replacements they should last a very long time. I might get one again soon, until then the JU06 sounds close enough to keep most people happy... just a shame it only is 4 voice poly!

I created a basic sequence in logic then added an manually edited ARP about mid way. I used the Soundtoys Echoboy Jr for delays and the Valhalla Vintage verb for .. well .. 'verb :D"

Rephazer - Synthstrom Audible Deluge Live Techno Set (1st try out)

Published on Sep 30, 2017 Rephazer

"Just some fooling around on the Deluge which I just bought 2nd hand. Only samples are used and the audio is recorded directly on the Deluge. As you can see I am still learning the device and it's workflow which is completely different to the Elektron workflow that I am used to, but it's a really cool machine and no crashes yet!!"

Roland boutique SE-02 (studio electronics) sound demo

Published on Sep 30, 2017 ollilaboratories

"Next up testing in the boutique series is the SE-02, and really this tiny little matchbox of a synth sounds like a SE-01 and Model D on steroids.. it is just completely bonkers. :D and it's analogue dammit!!

I had the original model D when I lived back in Europe, and seriously, this is really really close to the feeling and oomph that it had. Adding the extra features.. well, its just becomes next level stuff :)

FYI, the signal might be just a bit hot at times / and yes, there is a little jam at the end :D

So, a few words on the video and format. There are heaps of demo-videos out there already with the SE02, and my take on this is to noodle around and do sound design/demo and give you insight how i personally work with synths when wiggling with knobs. So no feature deep dive, I try however to add some subs when there are weird stuff going on, and I hope this helps with clarity (if not, please ask in the comment section below).

And YES, i use FX (not all the time), if you have questions on where and when it is on, again please ask.

FX (from right to left connected in series) .. audio out from SE02 in mono to SolidGoldFX electroman (BBD 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.

I hope you can enjoy it!!

"A high-quality set of 17 red plastic slider caps which make an excellent alternative to those originally fitted to the Roland SH-32 synth."

Inside a Clef Microsynth B30

via Andrew K in the comments of this post.

The pics are via this auction for one for parts.

Not the best pics but I thought they were worth capturing for anyone interested, and as you don't see the inside of these often.

via the listing: "Extremely rare and unusual Clef Microsynth B30 in pieces. This is not a project for the faint hearted as they synth is in pieces and does not work, a project for someone skilled in repairing/restoring synths. As far as I know these were built by Clef Electronic music (late 1970s) in conjunction with Practical Electronics magazine to offer a mono synth at an affordable price Kit Form or built. I don't know if this was one of the kit models or ready built."

Powertran Transcendent 2000 Synthesizer w/ Filter Sweep Pedal

via this auction

You rarely see the pedal.

"Legendary 70's synth. The Transcendent 2000 was one of the first commercially available synths to be available to the public. It was sold as a kit and this one was built by myself. It was never used in anger and was put away with other band gear in a store room. Now I am having a clear out and it's up for sale.

There is lots about this synth on the internet. Designed by Tim Orr this type of synth was popular in the late 70's early 80's and in particular was used by Joy Division. These are fairly rare beasts , especially a working one. I have checked the synth out and adjusted some of the key contacts to give better contact / overtravel. This was a weak point on these synths as they are fairly delicate. So here we have a fully working example of this traditional analogue synth. All the keys work , all the controls work. Overall it is in good condition for its' age. It is monophonic ( one note at a time) but has some great sounds /effects. If you are not familiar with this synth please note it must be plugged into a sound system/ amplifier etc. in order to use it , ie. no built in sound system but that's pretty standard for a synth."

Korg Hawk-800 (EX-800) Polyphonic 8 Voice Analogue Desktop Synthesizer SN 005417

via this auction

"The Korg EX-800 is an 8 voice polyphonic synth and this one is in really good shape (which I paid £300 for). This synth has been modified and includes additional knobs for - Filter cutoff, Resonance, pseudo FM amount , Noise + a switch to choose a 12dB or 24 dB filter. The desktop version is very hard-wearing with its metal case, also giving it a good weight.

I have also modified it further by installing the HAWK-800 upgrade (the kit costs about £100 to buy + my time to install) which adds an unbelievable amount of features to the original synth. If you go to this explains in detail all the extras you get from it."

"Now that the digital and analog sections of the synthesizer are complete I show off some of the things it can do.


I forgot to re-tune the thing before recording (it was still using the old samplerate tuning words) so it is not tuned to A = 440Hz, but otherwise it is of course IN tune so no difference there :P"

Outrun soundtrack on Yamaha DX7 DEXED VST

Published on Sep 30, 2017 Woody Piano Shack

"Outrun soundtrack Passing Breeze as you've never heard it before! Remixed using Dexed VST plugin emulating the sound of the legendary 1983 Yamaha DX7 FM synthesizer.

The original arcade hardware also used a primitive form of Yamaha FM synthesis so this version has similar sounds but in much higher fidelity.

So enjoy once again the sound of the Yamaha DX7 electric piano and bass patches, put through a touch of TAL Chorus (an emulation of the Roland Juno-6 analog chorus).

Sega Out Run (アウトラン Auto Ran) arcade music was provided by Hiroshi Kawaguchi, who had previously composed soundtracks for other games designed by Suzuki, and who was part of Sega's official band at the time, the S.S.T. Band. Out Run was the first video arcade game that allowed the user to choose the background music. The soundtrack comprised both jazz music (similar in style to that of fusion band Casiopea) and Latin/Caribbean music (similar to Miami Sound Machine). In all, three selectable tracks were featured: Passing Breeze, Splash Wave and Magical Sound Shower. An additional track, Last Wave, played at the final score screen.

Here is some information about the sound chips used in the original arcade hardware, as you can see FM synthesis is used here too.

Sound CPU: Zilog Z80 @ 4 MHz (8/16‑bit instructions, 0.58 MIPS)
Sound chips: 2 chips, 24 channels, 24‑bit bus width
- FM synthesis chip: Yamaha YM2151 @ 4 MHz (8 FM channels, 8‑bit bus width)
- PCM sampling chip: SegaPCM 315‑5218 Sound Controller @ 4/16 MHz (stereo)"
