ARP ODYSSEY - Comando Analógico - Cºª b01

Published on Mar 30, 2013 Comando Analogico

"First of a series of events to introduce members that integrate this strange band.
Primero de una serie de episodios para presentar a los miembros de este extraña banda.
Oddysey acquired in Dec 2011.
Restaured in Feb 2012. Incorporating internal microcontroller with MIDI and additional features (additional buttons too) as MIDI velocity modulation, MIDI tempo sync LFO, and more. The original keyboard works by taking precedence over midi input when played.
Drums performed by drum synth 'Macchina di Rumore'. [mini pic below - if anyone has better pics let me know!]
All MIDI sequenced and live mixed with FX."

Switched on Kraftwerk - The Mono Machine

Published on Feb 24, 2018 TheTrackdriver

"A short cover version of 'The Man Machine' album originally made by Kraftwerk. All instruments and robot voices are created on an Elektron Monomachine and the simple drums on the Elektron Machinedrum. I added a little Lexicon MX200 reverb. Both machines are running in song mode. The Monomachine is synced to the Machinedrum via MIDI.

Note the artifacts when switching from one kit to another, especially where the delay settings are very different between the kits."

Elektron MonoMachine SFX60 MKII w/ Original Box

via this auction

"At first glance, the Elektron Monomachine SFX 60 MKII tabletop synthesizer/sequencer looks a lot like an old-school sequencer workstation, and it is a sequence workstation, but it's a whole lot more too. Actually, the Monomachine SFX 60 MKII is more like five synthesizers in one, plus a powerful step sequencer and a crazy effect engine all put together with tomorrow's electronic music in mind. Seriously, this thing is way ahead of its time! Let's start off with the synth engines. First off, there's the SuperWave analog waveform engine and a DigiPRO wavetable synth - both synthesis mainstays. There's also the FM+ FM synthesis engine for all of those glassy, bell-like sounds."

Scuba - JD 800

Published on Feb 24, 2018 100 Things I Do

"So here it is, the JD-800 I have had this on the verge of being sold now for almost 7 months+ but it has survived so far! I have used a Lexicon Reverb + Sound Toys Filter Freak to create the main pad sound. Not really a track as such, more a sketch of an idea. Its a basic clip this week. Somehow between yesterday afternoon and today I have come down with a nasty cold!"

Behringer Model D - Pads? Why not!

Published on Feb 24, 2018 Earmonkey Music

"Someone made a comment that you can't make pads with the Behringer D because it is only one voice. Well, it may not be my Montage, but it has 3 oscillators and that's enough for a chord. Especially when you add some nice reverb and a little chorus and delay to get some space, I think it sounds pretty good."

Lell RC Russian Reverberator ( Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger)

Published on Feb 24, 2018 RR

via this auction

"Lell RC russian reverberator made in USSR from the 80's.

As for the old russian effects usually reverberator means more what we call delay nowadays.
So it's rather delay unit than reverb.

There is 2 chorus, 2 flanger, hall, 2x repeat delay, and two delay mode (called reverb:) can be used simutaneously.
There is a hold (button with endless sign) that is for hold / loop the delay (I show it in the video).

The inputs and outputs are replaced with jack plugs!

The mic input and mono output is very silent. I'm not sure it's an error. I think it's because some reason. Russian effects are usually tricky / different..
If using the line input and stereo output everything is perfect!

Cosmetically super nice condition!
Comes with beautiful original manual, includes service manual sematics."

Pollard Syndrum Quad

via this auction

"As you probably know, this is a very rare piece of kit. The Quad is king of all the Pollard Syndrums. Made famous by the Cars, Bozio, Porcaro, Queen, Little River Band. You can’t get this tone anywhere else.

This synth was owned by David Eagle who recorded and toured a lot in 80’s, 90’s, 00’s. His previous ownership of this unit is evidenced by a sticker on the bottom of the unit. It has been in a foam case for quite some years.

The Syndrum Quad was clearly of high build quality. The circuitry is fully discrete, putting it at a level that Moog and ARP were at the time."

Oberheim Matrix-12

via this auction


via this auction

"Legendary EDP Wasp by Chris Huggett, quirky looking toylike synth but a serious piece of kit, capable of rip roaring synth lines, fat bass...just straight up dirty with so much character. Great for all types of Electronic music.

This has recently been serviced by a top UK tech and has also had the “MidiWasp” retrofit added for midi in and thru functions; great for studio use!

The casing is in very good condition with two small cracks on both sides of the front corners. Small scuffs and very minor wear and tear for a Synth almost 40 years old. The Wasp has been tested and in good working order prior to listing.

Comes with the original manuals which have been laminated to help preserve and a good quality non-original good quality power adapter."

Univox K-3 Maxi-Korg Maxikorg 800DV SN 750121

via this auction

"Here is a thoroughly EXC Condition rare as hensteeth, phat and violent filtered beast. The Univox Maxi-Korg K-3.
Full service just performed by one of Detroit's premier synth gurus. All is cleaned, polished, tuned, stabilized, perfected. Bill came in just over $300 and that's with our frequent flyer discount.
As to what these do, how they sound, nature of this beast-- The overall timbre is rich and manifest heaven. The discrete oscillators sound magical, early rocks root with twists landing solid and timeless, turning magnificently around and absconding one's self, original fire and dirt-- thick but open, plenty of mid-bite. Station to station on this face-plate landscape land on future satellites such as the traveler high and lo-pass filters, duality all along, one completely independent from the other-- the stargazer in the field, the atmosphere weightless, blue. It's only pre-1979 stuff that has this wide open deeply rooted star-quadrant 50 foot plow the back-hoe thru lava disregard. Red AND blue!

One Morning with a Moog Mother-32

Published on Feb 17, 2018 Anodyne Institute

"Here is a comfy session of sound design with the Moog Mother-32 from my bed in the Geodesic Dorm. Recording commenced at 6:38am and ceased at 7:57am. The footage is presented chronologically. We try to 'show our work' whenever possible in this compilation, so you can see how one patch or sequence mutates into the next strange set of sounds. A Zoom MS-70CDR multi-effect pedal provides analog-style delay and lo-fi reverb.


The Anodyne Institute is a fictional place. We would like to make all of the sounds."

Pseudo-generative Sunrise with the Moog Mother-32

Published on Jan 31, 2018
Here is a pleasant little nothing, captured during #jamuary2018. This is the Moog Mother-32 semi-modular synthesizer and a Zoom MS-70CDR effects pedal providing delay.

The things that make it nice: A wandering sequence recorded into the Mother via keyboard. The stepped random voltage from the Assign output controls Tempo, so that each step in the sequence is a random length. These two combined feel like a hand-cranked music box.

Envelope and Keyboard voltages are blended together in the Voltage Controlled Mixer and then sent to the filter. This provides a blend between soft and hard, bright shapes.

Pulse waveform with slow pulse-width modulation suggests a future that did not happen.

The delay has a high feedback amount, creating a bed of prairie grass for the sounds to rest upon."

Jam with Moog Mother 32 & Elektron Analog Rytm & Heat

Published on Feb 22, 2018 Victor Roy

"Jam session over a simple sequence on the two Moog Mother 32. Gate out of one of the Mothers is modulating the other one's VCF cut-off. The Digitakt is just used to start the built-in sequences of the Moog Mothers 32 & tempo sync the Elektron Analog Rytm. The envelop follower of the Elektron Analog Heat is on modulating the low pass filter and slighty driving the Elektron Analog Rytm (Classic Dist engine). Added Valhalla Shimmer Reverb to the Mothers. No EQ or mastering applied."

Live performance with Digitakt, Moog Sub 37, Mother 32, Korg Kronos, Elektron Analog Rytm & Heat

Published on Feb 3, 2018 Victor Roy

"Digitakt is acting as master MIDI controlling a Korg Kronos, Moog Sub 37, 2x Moog Mother 32 and a Moog Minitaur. Elektron Analog Rytm for the beats processed by Elektron Analog Heat. Some reverb added with Propellerhead Reason. No EQ, no mastering and no samples.


Moog Mother 32 - Cinematic Landscapes

Published on Feb 18, 2018 Victor Roy

"Live performance with 2x Moog Mother-32 heavily processed by the fantastic Valhalla Shimmer Reverb (VST via Propellerhead Reason). The Digitakt is controlling the Valhalla Reverb parameters in real time.

Second part contains a beat base which is just a repetitive tom on the Elektron Analog Rytm processed by the the Analog Heat (envelop follower on)

IMPORTANT: Note that there may be some loud / bassy passages.

Modular - A More Melodic Sputnik

Published on Feb 23, 2018 Mike Thomas

"A slight departure from the drone/noise/atonal pieces I've been creating with this setup. This piece has a combination of sequenced (but randomly-arranged) and generative melodies. Managed to eke out a little rhythmic cymbal thing, too.

I know my last few vids have been super low-tech video-wise, but sometimes I just want to capture something and move on. Hopefully these vids are still of interest :-)"
