Live pass with 70s & 80s analog synths

Published on Mar 25, 2018 Alex Ball

"I thought it would be interesting to try a totally live pass with my synths to see if I could do it. I usually multi-track things separately.

How does it work?

The TR-707 is the master and in addition to playing the kick drum, its trigger out is triggering the sequencer of the SH-101, which plays the bass line. The TR-606 is slaved to the TR-707 via Din Sync. It provides hats, snare, cymbals and toms. Its high tom trigger-out is triggering the step-sequencer on the JX-3P. Its low tom is triggering the arpeggio clock on the Juno-6. The MS-20 is free and not sync'd to anything so I can play melodies on the fly.

Carl Sagan also drops by."

Bivalvia Synthesis

Published on Mar 25, 2018 Love Hultén

"Bivalvia Synthesis is a small synthesizer toy based on Axoloti core"


"The Bivalvia Synthesis is a small synthesizer toy based on Axoloti core, the open source hardware synth created by Johannes Taelman. The casing is handmade from wood and unfolds like a clamshell to reveal six dial/fader controllers combined with 15 high quality Cheery MX keys - 12 MIDI notes in chromatic scale, octave up/down and patch shifting. For output, there's stereo output on the back and a built-in full-range 15W speaker. Combined with Axoloti Patcher software - a user friendly and very graphic modular environment, you can create your own effects and sounds using oscillators (from subtractive to FM), filters, modulation, and much more. Simply connect the Bivalvia Synthesis to your computer via USB and start making objects. Build your own personal patch bank and store it on the built-in SD card."

Access Virus TI Desktop Synthesizer

via this auction

via the seller: "This Access Virus TI2 Desktop Synthesizer has been very lightly/gently used in my air-conditioned studio and is in gorgeous condition. It was used briefly with the software controlling it, so the knobs, buttons and connections are all in perfect working order and feel great. This synth was a little too complex for my juno-level background with synthesis, so it's received very little use (likely under 20 hours). It's voices are rich complex and extremely powerful throughout the sound spectrum."

MFOS Sound-Lab Ultimate Semi Modular Analog Synthesizer | Music From Outer Space

via this auction

Nice looking build.

"This synth has its quirks; it doesn't stay in tune that long, midi to cv won't track a full octave, osc1 pulse width nob only works in a small range of the full knob sweep. But these things never made it unusable.

The synth sounds awesome the oscillators and filter go really well together and the lfos are pretty extensive and always produce cool patterns.


- 3 oscillators square w/ pw & saw

- mixer with external input and white noise

- VCF with resonance, and AR and LFO mods

- VCA with AR and LFO mods

- AR generator with long and short modes

- 2 LFOs with 4 wave options each and high and low ranges

- repeat gate

- 4 attenuators

- S+H

- midi to cv

This synth has a few a few quirks - kinda hoping this goes to someone who knows a little bit more about the DIY side of synthesizers.

My go-to use for this synth was tuning a chord out of the 3 oscillators and sending a 16th note trigger to the AR generator and running the 16th note pulse through a phaser. Very daft punk sounding."

The PULSCar files - #3

Published on Mar 25, 2018 Stereoping

"A mellow tune this time. On checking out a newly aquired T.C. M-ONE with the Boutique JP-03, the critical border was passed where a simple test sequence starts to get inspiring and is to nice to be thrown away. Now this is the 3-hour-production result of a studio afternoon. Arrangement and mix are far from perfect, demoing inverse VCF keytracking, LFO1 mod, Portamento or VCF behaviour of the PULScar on the way. The sound is quite noisy as i forgot to mute unused mixer channels (awkward). Other synths used: Roland JP-03, Nord Drum 2, Korg PolySix, Kawai K4. Effects: TC M-one, D-Two, Alesis AirFX and 2 x Boss SE-50."

Animatronic DIY Musical Face On A Modular Synthesiser?

Published on Mar 25, 2018 LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"Kosmo has an #animatronic face!

Check back next week for a more in depth look at the process of making this mean machine. It will be up on my patreon in 2/3 days mind, as my amazing patreons make it possible to have time to work out how to make something as creepy as this...

Built using cheap ass servo's a teensy 3.2 microchip, some ping pong balls and chattering teeth form the joke shop. it was surprisingly simple to build as the rest of it was made from scrap sitting around, (blocks of plywood, bendy plastic and strips of metal). With a bit of effort and thought, it wouldn't be hard to replicate for under 40 quid.

Looks like the #furby organs mumma furby"
