Eventide H3000. The Cult Classic.

Published on Mar 10, 2018 thebrightsideok

"Here is a demo of my favourite piece of gear.
This was actually done on a H3500, which is a H3000 with the optional sampling board.
Best to listen in between the speakers, or on headphones, to hear the large stereo image that the H3000 produces."

"Sounds are from: OB-6, Sub 37, MS20 mini and Animoog. A few samples were used too."

Note: yes this is more of an effects demo than a synth demo, but I make the exception for effects that feature synths, and this one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

Synthwave LIVE Tweak

Published on Mar 20, 2018 tiergrinder

"While writing song templates I started to play the melody from The Midnights track Collateral and pretty guickly got carried away. After a while a had bassline and simple beat running and I wanted to make a quick synth noodling video.

The live set is really simple, main melody, bass line, pads and strings are all sequenced live from Ableton Live to synths.
Audio from synths is multitrack recorded in one take and I added effects and addiotional samples in post production.

All the synth sounds are as recorded without any editing, so there are some level issues, for example the mainline plays little loud when solo comes in.
I wanted to keep this honest and raw, what you see is what you get ;)

This jam is more or less an adaptation from The Midnights - Collateral.

Check out the their original version and other awesome tracks at their bandcamp :"

"No External Effect Added, As Usual..."


Published on Mar 20, 2018 Signal Edinburgh

"Welcome back folks! Very excited to get my hands on both of these two lovely new machines. As I only had one night with the tr-8s, I just got stuck in and made a quick techno jam. Unfortunately I didn't really have time to experiment much with a lot of new features on the TR-8s as I would have liked too.

The DFAM is awesome, I'll be doing a few more vids on it. I pretty much use it like a synth in this video. It's being triggered by the TR-8s.

Hopefully soon, I will get access to the TR-8s for another night or two. I just got an MPC Live sent to me from AKAI, so expect some vids on that soon too.

Enjoy the video!"

017//Temple of Old - minimal modular background music

Published on Mar 20, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"Wait, you can make patches that AREN'T drowned in reverb?!
This is a rhythmic, semi-self-generating modular patch using a small Eurorack setup sent through an Eventide Space hall reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on tape echo setting. No other processing has been applied.

This patch is based on a basic pluck sound from the higher Mother 32 interacting with the 2 delays. The delay times are set so that the Mother 32 seems to be adding on a new note to the sequence every time the sequence is repeated in the delays, with the older notes of the sequence fading away. I got the feeling of tribal drums from this, and the name/lighting colour come from me thinking of Temple Run (if that still exists nowadays)!

If you want to recreate this patch, you can find it here:"

North Coast Synthesis - MSK 007 Leapfrog VCF

Published on Mar 20, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Here's the totally unique MSK007 Leapfrog VCF (voltage controlled filter) from North Coast Synthesis. It's a "near elliptic musical low pass filter". I can't think of any other elliptic filter in the format or other formats but I've linked to some information below. It's basically a very very steep cut off that gives a unique character, saturation, resonance due to this unique curve that isn't from something we're used to. To my ear it's got a rubbery, vocal like character and it takes to modulation really well. Be great to get your take on this in the comments, thanks for watching and reading if you've got this far! :)"

See this post for details on the MSK 007.

Elektron Digitakt vs Avalon Bassline minimal dub style jam

Published on Mar 20, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

Dont ask me about genres, I really have no clue but I think this one is sort of dubby'ish ? :D

I am working on getting some more minimal style tracks put together as I am trying to get a gig lined up in europe soon (may). It needs to have minimal gear, preferably with a minimal dubby sound and work on a dance floor and have that nice bubbly flow to it.

For this the Avalon Bassline and Elektron Digitakt is a magic fit.. ! Perfect footprint and a shedload of possibilities... i can just keep on going forever :)

Gear used, digitakt and the avalon bassline
FX, strymon bluesky and red panda particle

Post processing, EQ and compressor + limited to tighten things up a bit.

Roland SH-3 Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The sh3-a does indeed have the infamous bob moog designed 24db ladder filter. It creates a strange juxtaposition as the roland oscillators are kind of bare and gritty but run through the milky moog masterpiece it's tamed in a way that I find very pleasing. This is a monophonic, single oscillator synth but with its unique almost organ like devide down architecture you can subdivide the oscillator to have different "feet" and wave shapes!!! So this particular example of the sh3-a has seen much love over the years so don't expect a museum ready piece. It's been. Played and enjoyed for years and I k ow it's got many more years left in her. A few dings, scratches and rust spots here and there but all sounds and parameters function as they should including the famous sample and hold hence the S H... that said, a few pots and sliders can be a bit noisy and changing wave shapes per get can be a bit fiddly. Takes a few wigglea from time to time.

While selecting a sec shape on the subdivided feet you have to kind of fiddle about with the knobs for it to behave. Other than that and the aforementioned dings and what nots, she's good to go!!! Watch a few you tube vids and start to imagine where this beast with fit to plump and warm your kit!! "

Electronic Synthesizer Korg-900ps KEIO

via this auction

This one is apparently in Venezuala.

"This is the rare Korg 900PS analog Preset Synthesizer. There seems to be some confusion about the naming (sometimes called PS900), especially since the face plate says "Synthesizer Korg Preset." The 900PS is quite a basic but very interesting monosynth. The 900PS definitely 'borrowed' some ideas from the Pro-Soloist. Instant selection of 29 different tone colors. From the sweet sound of a violin to the chugging of a steam locomotive. Sensitive soft-touch switches and plentiful controls provide a wide variety of effects including vibrato, repeat, even the harmonics you need for a Hammond organ tone. The 900PS has 29 presets: Timpani, Electric Bass, Synthe Bass, Piano, Harpsichord, Shamisen, Banjo, Mandolin, Xylophone, Tuba, Bassoon, Horn, Cello, Trombone, Saxophone, Voice, Clarinet, Accordion, Trumpet, Funky Trumpet, Synthe Trumpet, Oboe, Violin, Recorder, White Noise, Scale Noise, Harmonics I, Harmonics II, Harmonics III."

"Manual" Vintage Soviet Organ Synth w/ Built in Rhythm Section

Manual Analog Polyphonic Vintage Synthesizer Drum Machine USSR Polivoks

Published on Mar 19, 2018 GLvintageSHOP

via this auction

"'Manual' - a polyphonic organ with a 4 octave keyboard, the rhythm section and the built-in speaker system. Build in sound is quite powerfull and nice. Rhythm section allows you to controll SPEED and add new patterns on the way(8 patterns). It has really strong and unique built in drum machine, the one and only thing on the market. Also it has 4 basic sound registers, tremolo mode and vibrato.

As we can see on the label this synth was produced in 1982 on Vector plant (Polivoks brother). It is really hard to find even in Russia. There no videos on Youtube and practically no info in the internet about Manual."

Champagne SuperNova 1930s Vintage Synth - Rack Extension for Reason - Brilliant

via Propellerhead

"Introductory Offer until 31st March. Only €39.

Developed in the late 1930s by the Hammond Organ company, the Novachord was an instrument that, despite using a vacuum tube oscillator and divide-down circuits, was perhaps forty years ahead of its time. Many of the Novachord's features would not be seen again until the mid to late 60s, or even into the 80s!
