Sequential Prophet X 61-key Synthesizer Demo

Published on Jun 7, 2018 SweetwaterSound
Update: Re-Published on Jun 11, 2018

"If you've ever thought about exactly what you'd want in your dream synth, rest assured: synthesizer design guru Dave Smith is one step ahead of you. It's called the Sequential Prophet X, and it's a bi-timbral, 8-voice stereo (16-voice mono) beast that combines everything you love about analog synthesis with the endless power of digital processing. At the core of the Prophet X, is a powerful sound engine driving dual sample-based instruments and a pair of high-resolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation, all routed through scrumptious-sounding stereo analog filters."

Ensoniq SQ80 Multitrack

Published on Jun 7, 2018 Joakim Floke

"This machine is the business!!!
In this video its only the SQ80 who is making the sounds.
Some effects where added, but you will here the quallity
it possesses as most of the sound are straight out of the box.
No EQ, compression or modulation effects are used. Paning is from the synth itself.
I've planted some easter eggs here and there, listen if you can spot them and leave a comment."

*OBX Synthesizer Voice Expansion & Parts from Abstrakt Instruments on Kickstarter

On Kickstarter here.

"This is your chance to help fund and procure parts for the iconic Oberheim OB-X synthesizer. This is a passion project which came about through product development & engineering. We have built and tested numerous assemblies from our favorite vintage synths for the purpose of studying the intricacies of each design. After testing, these parts are generally used in our in-house machines or neatly stored away. In the case of the OB-X, employees & visitors alike were asking to remake these parts. Since we are not in the primary business of selling parts or kits it took some convincing. These designs are completely finished. We've established a goal of $10k to make sure we have enough quantity to hit our pricing targets. If the goal is reached at the end of the funding period we will immediately send out for the parts to be made. We do not anticipate offering these parts for sale in the future. This project is more of a give-back to the vintage synth community as opposed to a practical money-making venture.

Before getting into the details of the actual parts we'll clearly state what is being offered. We are offering various voice-related parts for the OB-X synthesizer, including bare PCB's, fully assembled PCB's, and fully assembled kits.

*OBX Voice Card PCB
*OBX Voice Card PCB Assembly
*OBX Motherboard PCB
*OBX Motherboard PCB Assembly
*OBX Motherboard Tray
*OBX 4-Voice Expansion Kit
*OBX 8-Voice Kit
*OBX Filter Control Board Assembly
Voice Card PCB
The *OBX Voice Card PCB is interchangeable with original parts. The layout is the same with the following improvements.

ENIG Gold surface finish.
Double-sided black soldermask.
Support for multi-mode filter. The 'Noise Half & Full' buttons can be used to select filter modes. This option requires our Motherboard PCB and Filter Control Board. No other modifications required.
Placements for 25-turn Bourns potentiometers for VCO adjustments
Placements for LM7815/7915 1.5A voltage regulators to upgrade the original 78L15/79L15 parts.
Placements for Panasonic FC radial capacitors to upgrade the original axial components."

Roland TR8S + Elektron Octatrack

"My first pairing of these two boxes. MIDI clock is from the TR8S because it's better for pattern-based tempo control. Audio from the TR8S goes into a Thru machine on the Octatrack and filtered from scene to scene."

2x Treadstone synth & Korg PS3100 short 'jam'

Published on Jun 7, 2018 Analogue Solutions

"Showing how good Treadstone analogue synths can be to provide accompaniment! One is producing the bass/loop, the other the percussive sound. Both using there internal MIDI Loop sequencer, synced with a simple patch lead. No MIDI.
The PS3100 is played live and is a beautiful sounding vintage synth"

Instruo - Tona (Saw-Core Analogue VCO with Linear FM & Wavefolder)

Published on Jun 7, 2018 DivKidVideo

"This is Tona from Instruo. It's a 12HP saw core analogue VCO with the usual square, saw/ramp, triangle and sine wave outputs but there's also an on board wave folder that takes the sine and uses a slider to create the fold level as well as a CV input and attenuator to modulate the folding. There's also a sync and linear FM input. It tracks well, sounds great, and works great with the Ts-L as a complimentary pair of oscillators."

VCV Rack Power Meter & Freak Low Power Mode

Published on Jun 7, 2018 Leonardo Laguna Ruiz

"This video shows the new Low Power mode for Freak and also tries to explain the new VCV Rack power meter."

Interesting look at how VCV modules are developed and an interesting analogy of voltage power for hardware to CPU resources for software.

1970s Paia Synthesizer and Big Lot of Paia Docs & Specs

via this auction

One for the DIYers out there.

"Travel back in time with this vintage synthesizer. I don't know much about it. The keyboard unit is 37 keys. It is a kit unit. I cannot even figure out where the power switch is, let alone the amplifier output jack. I got it from an electronics engineer who never once used it, who got it from another electronics engineer who apparently assembled it in the 1970s. There are no maker's marks on it, but I assume it's an Paia, as it came with a mass of Paia literature. Unlike the Paia components in the various spec sheets and catalogs included, none of these components have the Paia stamp or Pais graphics, as shown in the literature. Among the literature included are: a 1974 Paia catalog; a 1975 Paia booklet without record; a 1975 Paia schematics symbology booklet; 17 old Paia component booklets with specs (a couple are doubles); a 1972 "Using the Paia 2720 Synthesizer" booklet; and some other spec sheets, including some on clear mylar. If someone could tell me more about just what I have, I would appreciate it. It is truly untested. I plugged it in. I found one button that made a light turn on, but, other than that, I have no idea about it. It was in a clean and dry house for the last decade or so."

The Synthorcist (Moog DFAM, Mother-32, Freqbox & MF Delay)

Published on Jun 7, 2018 HardtekStudios

"The waveforms of the Moog DFAM, Mother-32 & Freqbox are possessing each other into an analog demon of multiple heads thirteens of knobs. Cables ran back & forth connects their neurons into one mind of many voices. The MF Delay allows it's spirit to linger for far too long."

Funny action figure.

Bram Bothers Rozeta Scaler - Work in Progress Videos

1. Rozeta Scaler - Work in Progress
Automating the Input Transpose using Rozeta LFO. This will transpose the incoming MIDI up and down, but still keep all notes neatly in key.
2. Rozeta Scaler (scaling an incoming MIDI track) - Work in Progress
Plugin #10 in the Rozeta Sequencer Suite

This plugin will function as a Scale Quantizer / Transposer plugin. It can process any incoming MIDI and quantize it to a user-defined scale + root key. The MIDI stream can be transposed before and/or after being scaled.

Possible uses: making sure you're playing only notes in the right key of your music, transposing/quantizing a MIDI track from another app, experimenting your music sounds in another key etc.

Coming soon.

Radiohead - Everything in its right Place - VCV Rack Jam

Published on Jun 6, 2018 Omri Cohen

"Everything started from trying to recreate the sound of the synth in this song, but all of a sudden I found myself recording vocals and connecting my midi keyboard...
It's all done in VCV-Rack (was too much for my computer to capture the screen as well), and just the vocals I've recorded in Reaper, but then sending them back to VCV-Rack and driving them through Clouds."

"Set" with Roland Juno 60, Juno 106, TR-8S, and Korg Prologue

Published on Jun 6, 2018 Machiwoomiapoo

"'Set' with Roland Juno 60, Juno 106, TR-8S, MSQ-700, MX-1, and Korg Prologue
This was a fun little ditty to create. I programmed all the drum patterns and variations into the Roland TR-8S. After that I programmed a sequence into the Roland Juno 106 for the BASS line and the Juno 60 for the Arp line. I used the MX-1 to add some variation via the scatter function. For the solo I explored some Korg Prologue presets and found 21 and 16 to be great for the tune. Thanks for listening. I appreciate it. Take care and have a wonderful summer! :) Sam."
