Hammond Vintage Synthesizer 102100 * RARE USA version of 102200 SN 391376

via this auction

"Vintage 1970's Hammond 102100 analog mono synthesizer. This is the rare first version of this synth which was made in the USA (later model 102200 was made in Japan).

Unit is in Excellent cosmetic condition. All original and fully intact. Unit powers up / lights up but has not been tested through a sound system. All keys and buttons are lively, sliders are sticky and need lube. One slider tip is loose. Original 2 prong plug end."

Korg POLY 61 SN 704524 w/ MIDI & Custom Black Side Panels

via this auction

"Very nice, Korg Poly-61 programmable polyphonic synthesizer. This is an early production version, with factory MIDI added.

This synth isn't perfect condition, but everything works as it should and recent maintenance has been completed. Main board and backup battery have been replaced. Original board is included. Keyboard has been completely disassembled and all the contacts cleaned and reconditioned with caicote.

Knobs are showing age, but all the buttons and knobs work as they should. Volume knob is kind of scratchy and may need a little contact cleaner. One key has a slight bend in it, might just need reseated. Only thing I haven't tested is MIDI since I don't have something to trigger it with. The inserts for the screws that hold the main panel to the sides tend to spin, so removing those screws can be a little tricky.

Great sounding 80s synth for that "Stranger Things" sound. Same synth featured in Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters theme song."

ARP 2500 Compositions by NightBirds Electronic

ARP2500 (ARP1 - Demo)

"The composition here was made with and only the ARP.
Not a big demonstration like blipblip, crack ... as we can hear sometimes and so often with this machine.
Locked in the dark, with only the light of the diodes of the apparatus.
Improvised & recorded quickly with a Fostex D2424 LV.
Peripherals used: 2 pairs of Alesis Midiverb-Midifex and a WEM Reverbmaster table.
No mastering.
At times the sound is not very clean. This is not the purpose :)"

ARP2500 (ARP2 - Demo)

"Always with the ARP 2500 and some peripherals. No sequence is flown during this session because, the sequencer is for the moment in full cleaning at the levels of these contacts."

"Audiophile Circuits League
Welcome to the Audiophile Circuits League. We are a group of musicians and engineers based in Berlin.
We are in the very fortunate position of being able to design and build our own equipment, the kind of equipment we want to use.
Of course, there are many other excellent companies making fantastic equipment – much of which we own and love – and so rather than trying to reinvent wheels, we go beyond classic designs.

First we build devices that avoid problems we’ve encountered – everything from irregular performance to awkward connection placements. And we ensure consistent quality, using only carefully selected component, and assembling our equipment here in Germany.

Second, whenever possible, we try to create modules that do something different and offer new possibilities – be that a filter that doesn’t lose the bass when you crank up the resonance, or a VCO which allows gradual morphing from soft- to hard-sync.

One of the best things about modular is the flexibility and creativity it offers, so if you have any suggestions for new features, revisions, or even new modules, we’d love to hear from you."

New North Coast Synthesis MSK 011 Transistor Mixer Uses Only Six Transistors

via North Coast Synthesis

"New mixer from North Coast uses only six transistors

TORONTO, Ontario - April 3, 2018 - North Coast Synthesis Ltd., Toronto-based manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, today released its Transistor Mixer, a four-channel utility mixer for Eurorack modular synthesizers. At 6HP width, the new module is suitable for both audio and control voltage processing. Its minimalist design features only six transistors, but still includes extra features like offset generation, separate AC and DC outputs, and distortion.

'We're a bit spoiled now that chips are cheap as, well, chips,' says North Coast module designer Matthew Skala. 'People can afford to throw dozens of integrated transistors into even the simplest analog projects. Millions, for digital. With this one I'm trying to get back to the style of classic designs where every speck of silicon was made to really count.'

The term "chips" in an audio mixer usually refers to integrated circuits containing operational amplifiers, or "op amps." An op amp chip would typically contain between ten and one hundred transistors built into a single piece of silicon. Designers use these ready-made building blocks to save time and expense in constructing larger circuits. Circuits made out of so-called discrete transistors, one at a time, require a more manual design approach with attention to every transistor.

"I'm not convinced that discrete transistors really make an audible difference," says Skala. 'There's a lot of mumbo-jumbo on that issue in the audio world. But they certainly made the module fun to design and build. There's something very nice, and you can see it even in the circuit diagram, about having only a few parts and being able to describe exactly what each one of them is for.'

North Coast sells the MSK 011 Transistor Mixer on its Web storefront for $210 Canadian including shipping (assembled module), or $140 for a do-it-yourself kit."

Moog Subsequent 37 vs KORG ms-20 - random sequences

Published on Apr 3, 2018 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

So I wanted to try out if the Subsequent is any any good for arpeggiator/sequenced stuff, well, it is safe to say I am pretty happy with how it sounds :D

I am using the internal sequencer in the Subsequent 37. Anyone who would like to guess how many steps I have programmed in it? :D The RE-20 is doing a tape delay + some plate reverb on top from the strymon bluesky.

ms-20 also has a sequence running using the SQ1, effects is tape delay + spring reverb from the strymon el Capistan.

Simple piano with phaser for some one note ambient stuff, plus a reverse loop from the same replayed with the X2 ditto. Red panda particle + eventide space for FX.

Nord Lead has a slow arpeggiator running free using a slow pad sound for that evolving feeling.

I hope you can enjoy this one!

Bastl Softpop on Drums - Freakiest Noise Box Ever?

Published on Apr 3, 2018 Kablehead

"Finally i got my hands on the wonderfully crazy Softpop from Casper Electronics & Bastl Instruments.
Before i got it i wondered how it would sound on drums. There are short demos of it showing that but i wanted to hear more.
So this is my first video with the Softpop filtering and crunching up some drums from the Volca Beats.

The Softpop can be used as a standalone synthesizer/noise box or as an effect unit processing external signals.
It has a lot of character with a mind of it's own. The filter is very liquid sounding and the circuit can produce crunchy distortion too.
With the patchbay you have a lot of possibilities to route the signal in different directions.

This is definitely one of my favorite sound boxes. It's so easy to play with it and explore all kinds of sounds.
