New Prototype Optigan/Orchestron Disc Player - Sound Demo

Published on Nov 14, 2017 optigandotcom

"Robert Becker has been making steady progress (in his spare time) on his new Optigan/Orchestron disc player, which we hope will be put into production at some point. There's still lots of work to be done, bugs to iron out, things to be fine-tuned, code to be optimized, etc, but it's currently playable (via MIDI), and the basic sound quality is quite good, so we figured we'd post a few informal/noodly sound clips of it in action. These are direct/unprocessed recordings from the unit, some featuring the onboard reverb. Sorry, no live video of it being played at this time. We don't cover ALL the features/functions in these sound demos, as some of them aren't quite working yet, but you can get an idea from looking at the photos what sort of things it will be able to do. Also, currently we cannot field any requests for pricing/availability, so please don't ask! We know alot of you will be interested in obtaining of one these, but at this time we simply can't give any estimates on that front."

Like an optical record player! Which, essentially the Optigan was/is.

Brother GX-151 Synthesizer + Vesta Kozo DIG-412B Digital Delay test

You can find one more demo of the Brother GX-151 from 2008 here. I'm guessing Brother is the same company that made typewriters. I own a Brother PDC 100 MIDI recorder which has the same Brother logo as on the typewriters. They also made the Philips PCM 100.

"For those who don't have much time I take a look at my Top 3 tips things for making your Korg Monologue! Let me know what you think."

The drum machine trick is pretty cool. The third oscillator at the beginning of course is filter tracking with self oscillation. It's a trick you can do on my other synths, however you are stuck with high resonance in the patch, so it's not the equivalent of a separate oscillator of course. Still useful though.

Radikal Technologies' Jörg Schaaf Repairs a Roland D-550 Display

Jörgi's Reparaturen: Roland D-550 Display Reparatur

Published on Nov 13, 2017 Jörg Schaaf

"In diesem Video lernen Sie zum einen, wie man die Display-Leuchtfolie des Original-Displays beim Roland D-550 auswechselt und zum anderen, wie Sie das Original Display gegen ein moderneres Äquivalent mit LED Hintergrundbeleuchtung austauschen.

Bitte beachten Sie - im Inneren des D-550 liegen bei nicht abgezogenen Netzstecker an manchen Komponenten 220 V an. Eine Berührung dieser Komponenten im laufenden Betrieb ist lebensgefährlich. Ziehen Sie den Stecker von daher immer ab, wenn Sie nicht gerade einen Funktionstest durchführen. Sollten Sie noch nie einen Lötkolben benutzt haben, kann ich den Umbau nicht empfehlen. Ich übernehme keinerlei Gewährleistung für den Erfolg einer nach dieser Anleitung durchgeführten Reparatur. Das Gerät kann bei fehlerhaftem Umbau zerstört werden! Wenn Sie sich die Reparatur nicht zutrauen, sollten Sie die Finger davon lassen."

"The Wind Forest" - Analog Physical Model of a CELLO played w/ TOUCHE'

Published on Nov 14, 2017 gattobus

"I took advantage of the amazing features of Expressive E TOUCHE' to play a physical model recreation of a classic cello built with my eurorack modular synthesizer.
I used Karplus/strong technique: a noise source through an analog BBD delay used as a resonator.
The sound may not be perfect but the sensitivity of this controller make it feel so real. :-)
You can find the patch description at the end of the video.
I hope you like it!"

And the original from the Studio Ghibli Hayao Miyazaki film My Neighbor Totoro. If you haven't seen it, make a point to watch it this weekend! Or as soon as you can. :) It's a great film along with all of Miyazaki's movies. Pure magic. It's like taking a vacation from all the burdens in life.
