New Behringer UB-Xa Desktop Render & an Update

Note the differences from the previous desktop render here.

The image above with the following note from Uli Behringer was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"I like to provide you with an update.

Please find attached a new front panel layout, which includes many of your suggestions. However we decided not to integrate effects in order to retain the authenticity of the original instrument. When it comes to effects, we might be able to surprise you with a very cool solution in the near future :-)

While the team is now working on the schematics and software architecture of the synth, we have not yet locked down the design and feature set, so there is still room for change.

Please let us know your thoughts.

AJH Synth GEMINI 2412 Demo Jam Test Dual Vintage State Variable Filters | Eurorack Synth Patch jam

Published on Mar 7, 2018 SonicVoltage

"AJH Synth GEMINI 2412 Dual Vintage State Variable Filters based on Oberheim SEM - (Demo Patch Jam) & Mega-Phase 12, SE Tonestar - See Description Below

Using the AJH Synth Gemini 2412 to create three separate sounds from one single mono waveform (Studio Electronics Tonestar 2600 VCO).

One of the GEMINI 2412 Filters is used to output the Bass Sound. The other filter is used to output the High Pass sound and a 'Variable frequency content' sound.

This gives us a Bass Waveform and two upper waveforms which feed both inputs on the AJH Synth Mega-Phase 12. The two outputs of the Mega-Phase 12 are panned one Left and one Right (in the DAW)

Sequencing (which is pretty basic for this patch) is from the Winter Modular Eloquencer which also provides two LFOs to modulate parameters on the AJH Synth Modules.

Dr. Dave Luce's Polymoog Teardown (by Synthpro)

Published on Mar 7, 2018 synthpro

"Hey guys,

It is with excitement, I bring you this video of Dr. Dave's second polymoog tear down before rebuild. [you can find synthpro's video of his first one posted here]

This is a video for the hardcore polymoog fans out there, I suggest you grab a snack/drink and enjoy as I go from a fully assembled polymoog to the bare parts making up a polymoog!!

As mentioned in the video, this is another polymoog that belonged to Dr. Dave Luce, the inventor of the polymoog.

You can read more about Dr. Dave here:

Im restoring this polymoog for the Luce family. Dave is no longer with us on this earth but his legacy lives on with the great inventions and research he left behind. I have to personally thank Dave because without the polymoog, I do not believe I would have ever got into electronics and made a career out of synth restorations. THANK YOU DAVE!!

A very special thank you to the whole Luce family as well, its a true privilege and honor to call all of you my friends.

Thanks for the support and for watching!

Prophet T8 - Sequential Circuits Vintage Synth

via this auction

"Tunes up, and all of the keys work great, including the velocity/aftertouch. Everything else works perfectly but it is old, so it is being sold as is, no returns. You can come test it out yourself.

Physically it is a bit worn looking The wood side panel has a large chip on the corner as you can see in the photos. and the silk screening has rubbed off in some places along with some paint on the back.

Also, two of the original knobs were missing, so I replaced them with similar looking knobs. One of the original knobs is also missing it's silver cap, so it's just pure black.

This is the most expressive keyboard ever! The aftertouch is poly-aftertouch, so each key has individual modulation instead of channel aftertouch like most other keyboards where it affects all voices the same at once. Sounds soooooo good! For a vintage synth you'll only find this kind of feature in the CS-80 or Rhodes Chroma to my knowledge. Works as a great controller for other synths. The aftertouch has the perfect sensitivity."

Rare SYNARE HI TOM Percussion Synthesizer SN 19026

via this auction

Another super rare Synare not previously featured on the site. This one is the Hi Tom. Also see the Bass here.

"This is an extremely rare original late 1970's-early 1980's Star Synare HI TOM percussion synthesizer. It does not include a power supply, but has been thoroughly tested with a 9 volt power supply and all controls functions great. There are 3 jacks, but the one near the DC plug in was the only one that had output. The other two are a bit corroded and one seems to be slightly smaller than 1/4". It has some cosmetic wear. One screw is missing from the top."

INCHROMA Performance - live edit | Ambient Eurorack Synthesizer

Published on Mar 7, 2018 Chris Otchy

"Edited segments from a performance for the Inchroma reception at Zughaus Gallery in Berkeley on February 24, 2018. Thanks to Jary Niebur, whose reception it was, for inviting me to do my thing.

I took a little bit of a different approach on this. I wanted to bring in a few different textures and play with the energy level throughout the set, so I brought my guitar for some live looping, and also ramped things up a bit at the end with some more driving, dub techno tracks.

Rebel Technology - Mix 04: Introduction

Published on Mar 7, 2018 Rebel Technology

"Demo of Mix 04. Mix 04 is our 4x4 VCA matrix, a powerful routing and processing tool for Eurorack modular synthesizers with 16 top quality Blackmer VCA's."

via Rebel Technology

"Mix 04 is an extensible 4 in / 4 out VCA matrix with a total of 16 transparent Blackmer VCAs. The matrix can route any input to any output. Several Mix 04 modules can be combined to make a bigger matrix.

Analogue Bus
Mix 04 features the new Rebel Technology analogue bus, allowing compatible modules to be interconnected without additional patching. Connect two or more Mix modules to create a mixer with more inputs and outputs. Balanced inputs and outputs can also be added, either for front panel mounting or built in to the modular case.

The module features a 4×4 matrix of CV inputs, one for each input (vertically arranged) going to each output (horizontal). The level for the first input going into the first output is set by the CV input jack at the top left of the module. From top to bottom are the CVs for input 1 to 4, and from left to right for output 1 to 4.
The two rows of LEDs indicate the input and output levels respectively. The first row of jacks below the LEDs are the inputs, the row below are the outputs.

On the back of the module there are four 5-pin interconnect headers. Two 5-pin headers connect the input channels and normalled inputs. Normalling means that a connection can be made between two modules when nothing is inserted into the normalled jack. Inserting a plug into the jack breaks the normalled connection.

Elektron Digitone SINGLE TRACK JAM & Tutorial

Published on Mar 7, 2018

"Maximising one track on the Digitone.

I had an idea to try maxing out a track with sound locks and micro timing, in response to some comments about the Digitone's 4-track limit being too.. limiting. Turns out that's not really the case, and you can actually do a lot even with just one track!

Note: I used the Reface DX just as a MIDI controller in this video; no audio is being generated by it."
