GoFundMe Campaign for Synth Repair Workshop Fire

This one in via Ross of Vicmod:

You can find the GoFundMe here.

"My close friend Brett Maddaford, synth repairer, lost his workshop including my mint Roland MC-202 and a friends original ARP Odyssey ( plus so many more great classic synths) over last weekend.

Brett started Vicmod with me 13 years ago and has been a huge part of the worldwide synth community for 20 plus years. He is one of the nicest people you will meet and I wanted to put this out to our amazing synth community.

There is a go fund me to help Brett Maddaford rebuild his excellent synth repair service and home that was devastated in the fire."

Vintage Rhodes Chroma Analog Synthesizer w/ Road Case+

via this auction

Cool Chroma Paramater Chart below.

"Rhodes Chroma Vintage Poly Analog- 16 voice. 1982
Wooden weighted keys, 64 key range (E1-G6)
True audiophile quality, is basically a polyphonic version of an ARP-2600
(ARP was the original designer) Comes with the original factory patches.

The memory board was replaced by a modified board that has MIDI and CC functions and multiple banks. (see photo) You no longer need to disassemble the unit to replace the AA battery.
The power-supply was replaced by a much more efficient and reliable unit, thats smaller and lighter.( See photo)

A sustain pedal and variable pedal is included with the sale.

This unit has typical wear but nothing too rash, after all, its 35-years old, and is fragile by nature. I don't recommend live gigging.

Custom made facsimile page made on heavy stock ( included) that is very useful.(see photo)
The unit comes in its original ATA padded flight case, which weighs nearly as much as the Chroma itself. The gross shipping weight is 125 pounds.

This unit was recently serviced by the same person who created the modifications."

Modular Studio Elektron Eurorack Combi SKIFF stand

via this auction

Note the Clarke IMAGINATOR VCX-378. It's a module from none other than Vince Clarke of Yaz, Erasure, and early Depeche Mode fame. It was introduced back in 2015. What's odd is I haven't seen it featured in any online demos since then. This listing however is only for the stand. The modules and Analog Four are not included.

"Modular Studio Elektron Eurorack Combi SKIFF stand - This stand combines a stand designed to optimize performance and programming positions for Elektron Analog Four, RYTM, Octatrack, Monomachine, Machinedrum with MS SKIFF 66HP comprising 3U space for Eurorack modules

NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING THE OPTIONAL EXTRA 1 U Euro rack accessory rail, this can be purchased separately in a another listing.

The MS Combi SKIFF stand raises the Elektron unit to the right angle for performance and programming making the production workflow a breeze and ensuring cables are not snagged or in the way.

The integral Modular Studio 66HP Skiff can be situated on top or bottom level over or above the Elektron unit.

The MS 66HP skiff is 5.5cm deep so will fit most Eurorack synth modules be sure to check your module depth before purchasing.

The MS Combi SKIFF stand stand can be oriented in 2 positions to have the keyboard face in desktop or upright positions.
The Kit includes 2 x stand cheeks and 4 x screws to attach to the Elektron synth or drum machine plus MS 66HP SKIFF with fixing screws plus screws and nuts to attach your Eurorack modules to use as a desktop Modular Synth / Elektron Combi stand

The Stand has cable slot to pass cables and wires under the side of the stand.

We also have a version identical to the Elektron Combi Skiff stand which includes extra 1U section underneath the 3U modular synth SKIFF

Friday Fun - Jupiter 6 and Novation Circuit

Published on Dec 8, 2017 sonicstate

"After last weeks impromptu post featuring the Roland SH-01A and the Soma Laboratory Lyra-8, we were rather overwhelmed by the response. You said "Do More!". So we took the opportunity to pull out the Roland Jupiter 6 - a classic 80s poly (some say is better than the 8 - runs for cover..)

Anyhow, we also had a Novation Circuit, which has had some excellent updates of the last few months (v 1.6). What do they sound like together?

The answer is pretty good - we think."

Xaoc Devices Processing Control Voltages with Samara

Published on Dec 8, 2017 Xaoc Devices

"Samara is a 'Swiss Army Knife' type of module, intended to serve the most common voltage and audio signal processing purposes such as attenuation, offsetting, mixing, inverting, and even basic waveshaping. We have designed it to complement the ever-popular Batumi module but it will happily serve all these functions on its own."

THEREMIN & SYNTH - playing with GrandPA - Bastl Instruments

Published on Dec 7, 2017 Therminal C

"Here is a demo of how GrandPA sampler can be used with a theremin, connected to the theremin's pitch CV.

GrandPA is a granular sampler in a eurorack format made by Bastl Instruments. It is a powerful little sampler, with an external micro SD card, that let you modulate many parameters with CV. It is a lot of fun with a theremin, i am totally in love with this module!
