E-MU Audity 2000 AUDIO DEMO of Ambient Pads & Leads!
I actually made a video of me playing & knobs twisting but
it ended up very blurry so here is a virtual acid trip to make up!
This rack module synthesizer is AWESOME for the studio!
SERIOUS Motion Pads, ARPs, Drones, Bass, Leads, FX...
Super Cool DSP engine, nice filters, some would say cold...
but this was designed in the glory days of INDUSTRIAL music,
so it has a serious Hard Trance, Euro Dance, Synth-Pop,
Industrial, EBM, Soundtrack sound set. And some good old
meat & potatoes, too!! I LOVE THIS AWESOME RACK SYNTH!
It even has 1 extra slot for an expansion board! SWEET!!
2nd hand prices as of 2018 are around $225-300 USD.
I have seen them for cheaper but they don't last very long...
GET ONE WHEN ONE COMES AROUND! Blast for studios!!!
Recorded DRY into Ableton LIVE with no extra effects.

Thank you for watching!!!!"

Details, Pics, and Price of Behringer's NEUTRON Paraphonic Analog and Semi-Modular Synthesizer

Priced at $299

"The NEUTRON Paraphonic Analog and Semi-Modular Synthesizer by Behringer features VCO's from the legendary 3340's, but amended with new circuitry. In fact, the filter is a complete new design. Behringer calls it the Moffatt filter, named after design engineer Keith Moffatt at their Manchester Innovation center. Keith has been experimenting for years with new synth and in particular filter designs. The Moffatt filter is a great contribution to, and just one of the many innovative features you will find in the Neutron.


Paraphonic synthesizer with authentic dual 3340 analog oscillators for insanely fat music creation
Pure analog signal path based on legendary VCO design to recreate classic sound performance
Semi-modular architecture with default routings requires no patching for immediate performance
Oscillator waveform control blends seamlessly between 5 shapes (tone mod, saw tooth, pulse, triangle, sine wave)
Individual pulse width / tone mod control provides ultimate sounds
Paraphonic mode allows both oscillators to be independently controlled
Flexible LFO with fi ve waveform shapes, MIDI clock sync, key sync and delay / fade in
Two analogue ADSR generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
Multiple stage analog delay based on legendary BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology
Overdrive circuit adds rich analog warmth and edge to your sounds
Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation
36 controls and 7 buttons give you direct and real time access to all parameters
Switchable, self-oscillating, multi-mode analog 12 dB/Oct VCF with dual output (e.g. LP+HP available on jacks) Utility functions including attenuators, multiples, slew rate limiter and summers for creative patching flexibility
32 in / 24 out jack matrix for an incredible amount of patching options
Patchable audio-rate sample and hold with glide for added creativity
Headphone output with dedicated level control
External audio input for processing external sound sources
Comprehensive USB/Midi implementation for connection to keyboard/sequencer
Designed and engineered in the U.K."

Korg Arp Odyssey polyphonic demo

Published on Feb 6, 2018 Frippertronik

"More music:

This a polyphonic demo of the Korg Arp Odyssey. I recorded each note of the chords in individual track of the Roland VS1680. The drum is an Alesis Sr18. Only effects used, reverb, delay and pan. This is a good exercise to know the possibilities of the synth."

Volca Keys Relaxing Ambient Melodies

Published on Feb 6, 2018 RemixSample

"Playing Volca Keys with lots of Valhalla Shimmer over a simple string melody I made with the "Adagio Strings Expressive" patch in Omnisphere. I processed that with Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch to make it lusher. Bandcamp:

The Volca Keys resembles the Minilogue saw tooth wave form in many ways so I really didn't need to buy the Keys but it's the only Volca product that has a "full ribbon keyboard" that also sends midi notes after a minor modification (soldering a midi cable on to the PCB board). Anyways, I hope you enjoy this ambient synth jam session."

Custom Korg MKP2s Eurorack Module from Million Machine March

Another eurorack conversion via Million Machine March

"These really are one of the most useful modules you can have in your rack. With Filters, Modulation, LFOs, Delays, Reverbs, Phasers, Flangers, Loopers, Vocoders, Sampling, Recording and even a couple of synth’s, there is something for everyone and anytime you need it. Now add some CV control and welcome to your next ‘desert island’ module! Specs of the original manufacturer’s product here.

You know these are special when they even build guitars with them built in.

This particular conversion used the owner’s artwork to add that custom touch. He also wanted ALL of the possible CV control, so his MKP2s is the most voltage controlled conversion I have made so far!"

"Free download here

Today is the release of Ableton 10, so in my excitement I figured it was a good day to release something for free!
Here is a Casiotone 403 Analog drum rack for your creative pleasure. The Casiotones are known to be relatively cheap keyboards, but the 403 has an analog drum section that sounds punchy, yet soft. check out the video and you'll see what I mean!
thanks for looking!"

Dinsync RE-303

via this auction

"As Dinsync states, "it's not a clone, it's a replica" (hence the RE in RE-303).

It's a 1:1 reproduction of the original TB-303 pcbs, all the components are the same as the exception of:

- the BA662 OTA, used in the amplifier section of the synth. It has been replaced by a clone that has no notable sound difference, you can however get rid of the clicky enveloppe some 303s has with a trimmer, or leave it like this.

- the microcontroller and firmware that goes with it. It's not possible to directly "copy" the original firmware, so Sonic Potions (also known for the LXR, a DIY digital drummachine) reversed engineered the original uC to make a new one and add some more features like:

- the DIN SYNC port which originally was a 5pin DIN connector with an integrated DPDT switch (to switch between internal and external sync), so it has been replaced by a classic 5 pin DIN connector and an external DPDT switch.

Custom Black Nord Stage EX 2 88 Used On Last Two Madonna Tours

via this auction

"This keyboard has toured the world twice with me. It is still in great condition as it was very well taken care of by my keyboard tech. It was featured on MDNA Tour in an upright piano shell during the acoustic performance of Like A Virgin/Love Spent. Then in 2015, it was painted black sparkle for the Rebel Heart Tour and lived on my keyboard rig where I played songs like La Isla Bonita, Heartbreak City, Music (Boogie Woogie/Dance rendition), and many more. All my tour Nord Stage programmed sounds, triple-pedal, and power cable will be sent to the buyer of this beautiful keyboard. It pains me to have to sell this beautiful memorabilia. Great for any die-hard fans of the Queen of Pop."

Halcyon Modular's Miasma - Classic Dual Voice Eurorack Synthesizer Module on Kickstarter

via Kickstarter where you'll find some demos and additional details.

"A pure analog oscillator module based on the Curtis CEM3340 chips used in legendary '80s synths, with new & innovative signal patching

We designed the Miasma Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) to bring that classic '80s synthesizer sound back to Eurorack modular systems. We just couldn't find any currently available oscillators with the sound textures and capabilities that we wanted, so we had to design our own; and now you get to own one as well.

There are many unique capabilities built into Miasma that you won't find in any other oscillator module, like the built-in patching and cross modulation structures that make Miasma so flexible in your rack.

Miasma Features :

16 HP Eurorack Module (3U Standard Rack Height)
(2) Pure Analog, Triangle Core Oscillators (V3340D or CEM3340)
(8) Knobs, Course & Fine Frequency, PWM, & FM (A & B)
(2) Triangle Wave Outputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) Sawtooth Wave Outputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) Square Wave Outputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) Sub-Octave Outputs (A Oscillator, 1 & 2 Octaves below)

(2) Volt per Octave Inputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) Frequency Modulation (FM) Inputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Inputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) "Soft" Synchronization (Sync) Inputs (A & B Oscillators)
(2) "Hard" Synchronization (Lock) Inputs (A & B Oscillators)
(3) Audio Mixers, mixing the main three A & B Oscillator Outputs
Supports Bus CV & Gate Signals (with 16 pin power connector)
Requires only +12V/-12V (compatible with 10 pin power connector)"

New Solina String Ensemble Synth Clone Coming from Behringer?

"I just acquired a Solina String Ensemble. Does anyone remember this beautiful string machine from the late '70's?
Amazing artists such as Elton John, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Bee Gees, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, etc. used it to create truly inspiring music. Looking inside it's actually a great piece of engineering. Uli"
