New Behringer VP-330 Vocoder Clone Prototype Pic?

You might remember the circuit boards posted back in May here.

This new pic includes the case. Note the slim bottom piece is the control section. You can see the sliders match up to the previous pics, and the original Roland VP-330 controls. Note the top piece in the image (bottom of the case) is wider and includes the mod control section and space for the key bed.

Roland SH 7 Review # 3 duo-phonic

Published on Dec 25, 2017 Fuzzo Frizzbeebot

"Holy cow flop Batman dynamic duo-phonic! Sorry about the distorting in the sound demo. The camera I have overhead need's adjustment and I should have used it's headphone monitor output. The video is more about feature then sound. The sound fx video later on is a much better sonic imprint."

All parts here.

"A little morning jam with my awesome synthesizer Moog sub phatty. Morning-jam. My skills on the keys are very limited but this Synth make some cool creamy sounds and fat bass and it is very fun to play with.

I used a Boss re-20 to ad some space.
Pad and strings are my Roland Jx-03
the beat is sequenced by the Electribe Sampler and the arpeggiator is Novation MiniNova."

The MCS 70 - Memory Controlled Synthesizer From Elka's Mario Maggi

via Francesco Mulassano

"Ultra rare italian synthesizers, made by Mario Maggi (the man who invented the Elka Synthex). This unit belongs to Patrizio Fariselli from Area!"

Apparently only three were made. It is monophonic.

The following are some details via from the MCS 70 brochure:


Memorizes all parameters of all user-defined control panel settings

Groups of up to 64 memorized settings available at any one time

Instantaneous change time from one memorized sound to any other

Non-volatile integrated circuit memory modules, no tape, nothing mechanical

No loss of user's memorized sounds, even unplugged or with module removed, until user himself memorizes a new sound.

It's called Integrated Memory Control. The result is the first completely programmable electronic music synthesizer. The programs are the user's own sounds set up with the front panel parameter controls.

The MCS 70 Memory Controlled Synthesizer represents a new concept in total integration of analog and digital operating systems allowing complete digital memorization of all parameters of the signal generating and processing modules.

Operating in the Panel mode, the audio result is determined directly by the variable panel controls. In the Memory mode the audio is determined by the previously defined and memorized panel settings.

A sound is memorized simply by pushing a button which cuases a digital code corresponding to the parameter control positions to be stored at the selected address (one of 64) of the memory modules.

Any sound may be instantaneously (5 milliseconds) recalled, even years later, after memorization, by pushing the corresponding memory address button.

Two memory modules each with a capacity of 32 programmable settings, are inserted in the rear of the instrument. Removing the module or unplugging the instrument has no effect on the contents of the memory. No setting is ever lost until the user decides to change the program at a given address. There is virtually no limit to the number of times the same address may be re-programmed.

Each module can be quickly removed and substituted by another containing 32 entirely different programs. Several sets of programs can be used, for example, during a concert. Each song can have its own characteristic sounds. There is no set-up time delay, and the performer can even change sound instantly in mid-phrase.

"It's party time @!
Get some image modes loaded on to your ETC, break out the sampler, hook up your Organelle with the new LFO Delay patch and just freak out a little bit. We're looking forward to bashing 2018!

Toy keyboard Christmas demos - Yamaha PSS-190 - Silent night

Published on Dec 25, 2017 organfairy

"It has been a while since I have played the smaller items of my humble organ and keyboard collection. But this time I will let some of them play all by themselfes.

I have noticed that often toy keyboards have at least one Christmas song on their repertoire of demo melodies. This is probably because in the 1980s and 1990s many of them were given as Christmas presents.

But since Christmas is here once again, I will play (if you can call pressing a button that says 'DEMO' playing) some of the Christmas demos that my toy keyboards are capable of playing. The first one is a Yamaha PSS-190 that plays 'Silent Night'."

This was a fun tune to make. I'll upload a separate video explaining the gear I used for this tune. The footage is from Astoria and Cannon Beach Oregon. We were checking out the Goonies locations. :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :) Sam."
