Folktek Resonant Garden

Published on Oct 29, 2017 Sir Folktek

"The Folktek Resonant Garden is an acoustic-electronic hybrid instrument. See/read more on
In these first videos, the cv functions are never used and there is no external processing. Videos to come will cover the use of cv as well."

via Folktek

"The Resonant Garden is an acoustic-electronic hybrid designed to create anything from beats and oddities to dense sound scapes. From its inception in 2006, the original garden has gone through many changes and refinements; micro garden, luminist garden and illuminist garden and finally this latest and likely final version.

The garden essentially utilizes three Alter circuits but each equipped with a mic pre-amp, and 4 garden (stringed) panels for generating acoustics. By plucking, rubbing, tapping or even bowing, those micro-acoustic sounds become amplified and effected by the Alter in any number of ways. In essence, the garden is a large microphone designed to pick up vibrations."

There are two Alter 1 designs and 1 Alter 2. Each Alter 1 has seven different DSP effects which is selected by touching the copper hexagon:

1; long delay (capable of near infinite feedback looping)

2; tight, notated granular delay

3; huge plate reverb

4; shimmering reverb

5; distortion and multi-filter

6; pitch delay

7; stutter glitch

Alter 2 has the following effects:

1; analog delay

2; reverb with infinite capture and lp + hp filters

3; choral reverb

4; palindrome reverse delay - backward/forward repeat

5; time stretch

6; pitch shift (notated semi-tones

7; time stretch glitch

On each of the Alter sections, the following is present:

- control for the gain of the mic pre-amp or any incoming audio.

- controls for mix, X, Y and filter as well as clock.

- all effects have a variation of a filter which may change effect to effect.

- X and Y control various rates.

- clock control adjusts the rate which controls the DSP which can drastically change the effect. In doing so it does slightly lower the quality of the output signal but the results are fantastic. This clock is not for synchronization.

- mix, X, Y and filter all have CV control inputs.

- Each control level or cv input is visualized on the control panel.

Each garden panel is equipped with a contact mic. A contact mic is designed to pick up vibration. The mic pre-amp is specifically designed to deal with the frequencies of the contact mic by boosting certain frequencies and dulling others in order to optimize the sound quality. The mic pre-amp has a gain control so the level can be adjusted according to how you intend to play.

Oberheim MATRIX-1000 Rack Synthesizer

via the seller: "I am the only owner, used in a smoke-free studio for most of its life, but on the road for 4 years with me and the Brecker Brothers and David Sanborn. Works perfectly, sounds as great as the day I bought it. Perfectly clean audio, no scratches in the volume pot. Shows some road wear, mostly on the top of the unit from racking and unracking, face looks good, display works great. Comes with the original manual and the original patch sheet."

Scratch That Itch - MFB Dominion Club & Tanzmaus, MPC Live, Octatrack & Analog 4, KArp Odyssey

Published on Oct 29, 2017 Cave Way

"If your first question is: 'hey cave way, is that a white russian you are sipping on?' The answer is yes.... yes it is. There's a whole mess of gear strung up together in this track to create a symphony of bleepy-bloops. With that being said the showcase synth is definitely the Dominion Club. The patches float through sub osc, to digi osc, to rubber band osc, to over driven osc growls. It handles the patch change instructions from the MPC live without a hitch. Hopefully this scratches the itch for some of you waiting on your Club."

overgrowth - modular jam

Published on Oct 29, 2017 rustyjaw

"An exploration of contrasts; floaty twinkling, entwined melodic vines enervated by the heft of crackling bass.

Basic patch notes:

Copper Traces - Seek (main 64-step melody)
Industrial Music Electronics - Stillson Hammer MkII (channel 4 dedicated to modulating the Assignable A input)
Make Noise Rene - mainly driving the ambient background

AJH Synth - Minimod VCF (main melody, plus other sources)
AJH Synth - Sonic XV (bassline)
Mannequins - Three Sisters"

STRANGER THINGS - Theme and individual sounds

Published on Oct 29, 2017 Introvertmusic

"I love Stranger Things so by request and by my own excitement I did a cover of the main theme.

All of the synths are being played/sequenced my 2 Elektron Octatracks (MK1 versions). The main arpeggio and bass is from an Elektron Analog Four MK1. The pads/swells are from an Access Virus TI MK1. The Drums are from an Elektron Machinedrum UW MK2. The chords are from a Tubbutec midi upgraded Roland Juno-60 (They call it a Juno-66). The vocal ambience is from an Elektron Analog RYTM MK1.

The visuals were generated by running the original intro into several machines by BPMC then captured in my Korg Kaptivator.

I think thats it! Thanks and hope you enjoy and feel free to share!!"

Moog Mother 32 - Plucking Synth Song

"Watch me turn a couple of knobs and try to play electric guitar with the Moog Mother 32 keyboard. ◕_◕
M32 is sequenced via midi from FL Studio.
Pluck melody: Mother 32 with Valhalla Shimmer
Faux Electric Guitar: Mother 32 thru Guitar Rig
Basses: The Legend VST (
Organ ARP: Zebra 2 with Valhalla Shimmer
Pad: Main melody processed w/ Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch

I was gonna recreate all the sounds using only the M32 but that would have taken too damn long. Have a nice Sunday!"

"How many analog oscillaors is too many? i tried to work that out, but instead just made an extremely intense sounding box.

This would not have been possible without the supporters on patreon! thanks!

This was a pretty big undertaking, i lost my will to live at the start of the week the amount of soldering required nearly defeated me, but luckily obsessive persistance did the trick! it looks quite daunting but actually in concept its really simple, its literally just the same circuit over and over and over and ov......... the next job is to add an add on module which controls the overall pitch so you can use it as a massive bass line generator of a robot atmosphere in a movie sound track! you will see me in the video reaching around the back of the box to change the notes! all im doing is flicking the voltage switch on the power brick! haha.

more info on the circuit and other info will be coming on my patreon within the next week if you really want to build one! or even a 10 oscillator synth with a filter and all that stuff.

link to a video of an early design of the oscillator i used is right here :"

"Here I am playing both Minimoog and Sonic 6 with my two Moog 1130 drum controllers. You could literally go on for hours doing this... and tweaking the synths, getting different sounds.

YAMAHA SK15 String Machine 1979 | HD DEMO

Published on Oct 29, 2017 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2017 by AnalogAudio1

Synthesizer Demo of the analog synthesizer/string machine YAMAHA SK-15. I played with a delay effect from a Korg SDD-3000 (right channel only - the left channel is dry).

Yamaha's SK-series are string machines with additional sections (poly-synth, mono-synth, brass, organ, depending on the model). The SK15 is some kind of cut down version of the SK-20. It has "ORGAN", "STRING" and "POLY-SYNTH" sections, they all are mixable. The Poly-Synth section has a nice analog filter (but only one for all voices). 1 mono output for all sections. A nice string machine! It competed with Crumar Performer and Korg Delta."

All the best my Friends,


via this auction

"It is a 3-OSC monophonic precise equivalent of infamous western MINIMOOG MODEL D, produced in the USSR in 1986 by Elektroizmeritel military factory in Zhitomir. Altair-231 is a refined version of another well-known soviet analog synthesizer Estradin-230. Both synths has identical electronic architecture, functionality and rich sound palette. Estradin-230 was manufactured from early to middle eighties and then Estradin factory changed synth`s design (new casing) and labelled it as "Altair-231". So Estradin-230 & Altair-231 are the same machines only in different bodies.

Synth has 4-octave keyboard (F-C) with velocity (sensitivity assign to vibrato effect). For live performance there is a wheel which provides pitch shift. ALTAIR-231 is based on 3-VCO (OSC-3 can work as the modulator), 1 VCF (lowpass 24dB/oct) with ADSR, 1 VCA, 3 LFO, noise generator (white/pink), glide, memory. It has an EXTERNAL INPUT allowing to use FILTER and GENERATORS with OTHER INSTRUMENTS such as guitars, synths, etc! ALTAIR-231 consists of 5 main sections - OSC, MIXER, MODULATION, FILTER and AMP."

Yamaha CS-60 8-Voice Synthesizer

via this auction

"Fully functional Yamaha CS60 synth. It has just been fully serviced by Retrolinear in the Philadelphia area. Retrolinear knows CS60s very well - they routinely service them for clients, including a few touring musicians who are still using them (Page McConnell of Phish being one of his clients). I have attached the invoice showing details of the work.

Functionally - Every slider, switch, the ribbon controller, and especially important, the aftertouch all work flawlessly. All voices function and are in tune.

Cosmetically - My CS60 is in excellent shape. The silkscreen is near perfect and the entire control panel has only like 2 very small chips and one scrape mark from a fader cap digging into the panel (pictured). The two chips are just above the keybed so don't take away from the cleanliness of the control panel (one is pictured). The tolex on the case is original and in very good condition - again, excellent considering its age.

Overall - This synth was never abused. It spent most of its life in the home of a musician - it was never toured.

The original tolexed hard cover and removable music stand are included - the stand attaches to the inside of the lid. I do not have the original legs. The CS-60 gets you most of the CS-80 sound at a fraction of the cost. The aftertouch truly adds to the expressiveness of the synth."

E-mu Emulator II EII Vintage Sampler / Sequencer Keyboard SN 791

via this auction

"The legendary Emulator II in almost flawless physical condition. One owner since 1987, a studio machine that's never traveled. Used very little in the last 15 years, so may need some maintenance, but seems to function perfectly. The only known flaw is that the backlight on the display no longer works. Includes foot pedal and two foot switches, and 48 x 5 1/4" floppy disks with original E-mu samples. Some are original E-mu discs, some are copies. Also 18 unused 5 1/4" floppy disks, 10 new in a sealed box. Original manual also included. Shipping is high because of weight (60 lbs) and size"


via this auction

"Excellent condition Moog Rogue. Only two owners! See photo for serial number (#8810). I've owned it since 2000 and barely used it. Stored away wrapped in closet of a smoke/pet-free home. Classic mono-synth with after-market adapter. Fired it up and all worked perfectly. Clean sliders and wheels, no drag. Only blemish is a chip under one key (see photo included)."

Moog Sonic 6 - Modulation (X/Y) Depth Wheel...

Published on Oct 29, 2017 noddyspuncture

"Just finished adding a modulation wheel to my Sonic 6. Although the Sonic has an X/Y amount control for each oscillator section, if you wanted to add let's say, an equal vibrato effect to both oscillators you couldn't really do it - not whilst also playing anyway. So I decided to tap into the circuit and add a small box containing a stereo pot and a miniature mod wheel assembly I bought on eBay. It works a treat - and I also added a 'bypass' switch which takes the modification out of circuit. The moulded plastic tray behind the keyboard also has some nice compartments in which to install the thing. Had to position it carefully though so that the wheel didn't foul the knobs when the lid was down... no drilling was done and it's totally reversible...!"

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #41: Yamaha VL7 - Song 3

Published on Oct 29, 2017 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the Yamaha VL7 Version 2. It's a monophonic synthesizer based on physical modelling algorithms. The song is a kind of deep ambient without drums ;-)

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
VL7 - TC Electronic Mimiq - DigiTech Obscura- 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."

Theremin Noodle - Moog Theremin , Elecktron Analog Keys + Fairlight Strings

Published on Oct 28, 2017 100 Things I Do

"A quick noodle with the Theremin, I used a little loop on the Elektron Analog Keys and some Fairlight strings to give a little interest. I also added some keys thanks to the Arturia Piano-V.

I have had the Moog Theremin for a few years but one of the problems is it needs a LOT of space around it to be played well. My studio is a converted master bedroom...its big .. but not that big and its quite a squeeze. As such the poor thing sits at the side of the studio waiting for its moment in the sun ... normally around this time of year.. I wonder why ..... :D

The Theremin is recorded live, same with the Elektron. I reversed the sound of the Fairlight stings after recording so that part is a little more impressionistic :D"
