"The latest v.1.20 Update for SYSTEM-8 sees 12 new FM Oscillator variations and 4 new unique Filters to give the powerful synthesizer another dimension of expressive performance.

All sounds are designed by Tatsuya Nishiwaki – a long-time preset sound designer for Roland synthesizers such as V-Synth and JUPITER-80. So, if you feel these sounds have a nostalgic air about them, your sense is correct."

Roland SH-101 Vintage Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"Functionally, the synth is in good shape, but there are two (common) issues that I have encountered.
First, the ever so common dirty power switch. If this is bumped, the oscillator pitch fluctuates slightly.
Second, the benders forward LFO control doesn't seem to change anything.
Everything else works/sounds great. Comes with wall wart PSU pictured.

It has the classic Moog analog sound with two voltage controlled oscillators, the 24dB/octave filter, a low frequency oscillator for modulation, a modulation and pitch wheel, a Voltage Controlled Amplifier and two envelope generators - one for the filter and one for the amplifier. It was Moog's early introduction into digitally programmable functionality. You can store presents and sequences. The switches are mostly membrane. There are a couple of physical switches and a data entry knob in addition to the two left hand wheels."

Published on Aug 1, 2018 DivKidVideo

"A few of us were talking and cheap, small cameras to use as secondary cameras online recently and Marizu Mercury Okereke surprised me at the Brighton Modular Meet and gave me a Zoom Q2n to play with for the day. So I simple left it filming in a few locations to see what the footage was like in different rooms / lighting conditions. It also meant I could turn that into a time-lapse to give you all a little extra look at the event to go with the other footage. So here you go! "

Roland SH-01A - a Peaceful Ambient DEMO

Published on Aug 1, 2018 Alba Ecstasy

"Well, I just received my Roland SH-01A. I procrastinated for a long time to buy it, since I was already quite 'covered' on this timbre area.

But my GAS pushed me and forced me to take it!
And I'm not sorry at all!
With a very nice sequencer that can be sent to external devices via both MIDI and CV/Gate - which is fantastic, will be a great companion for my other Boutiques!

Reverb - Neunaber Slate. Delay - EchoBoy JR.
The sound was not EQed, you can here some unwanted artefacts, especially on the mid-low range."

Arturia Minibrute 2s as a Drumsynth like the Moog DFAM

Published on Aug 1, 2018 Thomas Kress

"Using the Arturia Minibrute 2s as a drum synthesizer like people would use the Moog DFAM. Velocity and pitch values are driving the oscillators and the noise generator and the 4th track is used for the decay. Some patch cables are doing the other magic. Recorded directly with a field recorder - Zoom h4n. Adding a little compression and 3% reverb in logic pro x. I would recommend the Minibrute 2s as a drum synthesizer."

Snazzy FX pedals explored by Artur Punte poetry

Published on Aug 1, 2018 Erica Synths

"Artur Punte takes different approach to Snazzy FX pedals.

1) Voice record goes to the Wow and Flutter's input
2) Output signal from the Wow and Flutter goes to the Tracer City
3) The same voice record* signal splitted to The Mini-Ark as well
4) Square-wave output from The Mini-Ark goes to the Expression pedal input of the Tracer City
5) Signal from CV output of The Mini-Ark the CV input of the Tracer City
6) Output form the Tracer City, The Mini-Ark and voice record* go directly to a mixer

Record from the mixer's monitor output as it is – no effects, no postproduction or mastering.

* Poem "Today I Understood" by Artur Punte (translated by Kevin M. F. Platt), voice: Jayde Will

Manufactured in Latvia by Erica Synths now pedals are put in more compact heavy duty boxes with solid build quality keeping the authentic sound of the SnazzyFX pedals from the original run and will not only stand the test of time but will turn heads wherever you take them. Effects are great to use not only for guitar & bass players but experimental musicians and synthesists as well both in live and studio set up.

DELTA CEP A Knob attack!

Published on Aug 1, 2018 Jörg Schaaf

"Just a couple of minutes parameter tweaking with the Delta CEP A. At the end I am showing the smooth transitions between different sounds, that are possible with the snapshot Interpolator!

The DELTA CEP A is a new semimodular musicsynthesizer with monophonic and paraphonic playmodes, preset memories and snapshot automation. The DELTA CEP A is the perfect starting point into the EURORACK world and will become available soon as desktop standalone synthesizer and EURORACK module. The DELTA CEP A works just out of the box without any cable patching. If you are looking for a EURORACK FX unit or for POLYPHONY within your cabinet, you should also have a closer look as well. Are you curious about connectivity with your other gear? The DELTA CEP A has a MIDI interface and connects to every MIDI gear (MIDI sequencers, Keyboards etc.) The desktop version comes with standard 1/4 inch jack inputs and outputs.

The audio streams in that video are directly recorded from the main outs of the Delta. We have not used any compression or volume automation. What you hear is the original sound of the unit. If you have the impression, that it is not loud enough, please just adjust the volume;-)"
