Qu-Bit Electronix Shows Their New Nebulae, Scanned & Synapse Modules

Published on Feb 2, 2018 Perfect Circuit Audio

"Andrew from Qu-Bit Electronix brought a case full of their modules by to show us their three new modules. Their Nebulae V2 is an updated version of their first module, a granular sample player and sampler that is stereo and can have custom firmware loaded onto it. The Scanned is a VCO that uses scanned synthesis to generate wavetables on the fly by analyzing a system based on a model of springs. The Synapse is a sequential switch with way more options than the standard switch including randomized routing, crossfading and memory locations for routing presets.

Modular Jamsession with some new Dreadbox modules (Riamiwo StudioVlog 75)

Published on Feb 2, 2018 riamiwovideos

"I added new modules to my modular setup: the Dreadbox Echo, Murmux Filter and the Reflector. Also added a Mixer from EricaSynths. So I made a short test session with the new modules...

The MicroBrute and the Erebus are sequenced by the BeatstepPro, the NYX get's an Arp from the SH-01 and the 0-coast is sequenced by the TB03. Very nice that the Roland Aira are also usable in a modular setup :)"

$30,000 Technos Acxel For Sale

via this auction

"The Technos Acxel Resynthesizer is an additive synth developed in Quebec, Canada during the late 1980s. Its architecture is based on sine-wave oscillators that are each assigned amplitude and pitch envelopes to form the component harmonics of a sound.
The major innovation of the Acxel was, according to Technos, resynthesis. The idea is to sample a sound and extract its harmonic content using the Acxelizer. This information is then used to assign parameters, including envelopes, to the oscillators.

The Acxel comes in two pieces: the Solitary and the Grapher. The Solitary contains the main guts of the machine, including the main CPU board, the oscillator boards, the sampling board, the Acxelizer board, the floppy drive, and the I/O.

The Grapher is the machine’s user interface and is what Technos highlighted in its advertising. It’s a vacuum-fluorescent display for status information and menus and a surface of touch-sensitive nodules, 2114 of which contain LEDs.

Comes with printed manual, sound disks and latest OS. The Solitary sits in a transportable rack case. Serious buyers only. This is the holy grail and strictly for synthesizer collectors."

Someone needs to make a watch version! ;) Sorry, when I first saw the image in this post it was a bit smaller and reminded me of a Casio watch.

Modulation Mix

Modulation Mix from Station 252 on Vimeo.

"Mixing two Z4000 envelopes and an LFO with the top section of MixZ mixer module into the FM input on the Z2040 filter module to change the groove of the bass line.


Ch.1 - short envelope that is visible in the Mantis triggered with the same trigger as the VCA envelope (located in the skiff). I’m modulating release with one of the outs of doepfer LFO

Ch.3 - inverted envelope triggered on 1 and 5 (off screen in the Station 252 case)

Ch.4 - Doepfer LFO (also in the station 252)

Voice: 2x Tiptop Audio Z3000. One FM’ing the other while being hard sync’d to it > Tiptop Fold Processor > Z2040

Moog Realistic Concertmate MG-1 1981 Black

via this auction

"Built by Moog for Radio Shack's Realistic brand, the Realistic Concertmate MG-1 is a two VCO synth with a genuine Moog 24dB/oct filter. Compact but powerful, the MG-1 is capable of summoning that signature Moog sound.

This MG-1 is in great cosmetic condition. I purchased it still in its box a few years ago, with the manual. I don't think it had been played since it was made. I have given it a thorough interior cleaning and it works well."

Bleary I (0-Coast, Braids, ER-1, Octatrack, SQ-1, S-143, o_C)

Published on Feb 2, 2018 Cody Gratner

"This was recorded when I was so tired I couldn't focus my eyes.

The Octatrack is just being used as a mixer/effect unit and sending midi to the ER-1. The ER-1 is sending short trigs (closed high hat) on the right channel to the SQ-1 to the sync in. The SQ-1sync out is into the trigger in on the o_C in Piqued mode."

Frap Tools - Fumana *First Patch*

Published on Feb 2, 2018 DivKidVideo

"God this Fumana is gorgeous! It's several bands of fixed filter banks (band pass filters) that isolate the sound and let you pan, scan, morph and tilt your way around the filters beautifully. It's got a great set of fixed frequencies that really make basic waves speak very vocal and formant like. Enjoy my literal first patch with just an AJH Synth MiniMod VCO saw wave into it and some LFOs modulate through the bands. Full demo in the near future. Cheers!"
