Kawai K5000s 61-key Additive Synth w/ Original Box

via this auction

"A K5000 sound is composed of up to six different layers, each of which could use the 'advanced additive' synthesis engine or perform fairly standard subtractive synthesis using the internal PCM sound bank. Each source that used additive synthesis could use up to 64 harmonics per source (tuned in a harmonic series, each with their own amplitude envelope) and had its own formant filter that could be modulated by an LFO or its own envelope. The standard digital filter, available with both additive and subtractive synthesis, is known for its rather extreme self-oscillation at higher resonance settings. Another useful feature is that most functions of the synthesizer can be tied to velocity, location of a note on the keyboard, and MIDI controllers, allowing for timbral variation in response to player dynamics."

Polivoks Playground (Fun with S&H)

Published on Aug 23, 2018 poorness studios

"I was messing around with my Polivoks Modulator and somehow came up with this fun patch. All the modulation in the patch (except for the LFO used to sweep the bandpass filter) comes from the Polivoks Modulator."

New G-Storm Electro JP6-VCF Eurorack Adaptation [Roland Jupiter-6 Filter] Demo

Published on Aug 23, 2018 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c. 2018. Be warned - some sharp resonance sounds ahead!"

"This is no emulation, this is the JP6- VCF:

A faithful adaptation of the Roland Jupiter-6 synthesizer filter circuit in a slim, skiff/boat-friendly, 8HP Eurorack format module.

Great care was taken to keep the JP6-VCF fully analog circuit as close to the original as possible including 2 rare OTA filter chips and and thermistor frequency stabilization.

Mode switches are configured to give 4-pole LP, 4-pole HP, and 2-pole BP.

The JP6-VCF wields two audio INPUT jacks with a MIX pot.

Two CV IN jacks w/ signal attenuation pots allow you to modulate frequency with any two polar/bi-polar signals, low Hz up to audio rates.

Every module is hand-assembled and ready to rock your world.

Synthomania 2018 Synth Gathering Set for September 8, San Antonio, TX w/ Gary Numan

Full details here.

"Synthomania is a synthesizer exhibition and swap meet hosted by Syntaur. We’re putting dozens of rare vintage synths on display, and you get to spend quality time with them. Lay hands on a Yamaha CS-80, experience a rare Soviet analog synth, or play Syntaur’s signature Juno-107! If you can't bear the thought of going home without a certain keyboard, don't worry, most of the synths on display will be for sale.

For Synthomania 2018, we're also hosting a line-up of synth artists performing live on stage. There's no better place to hang out and groove to live music than Paper Tiger, and whether you want to sip a soda or enjoy a cold brew, you will be well accommodated. It’s a family-friendly environment, so bring along the spouse and kids. As the swap meet and exhibit wrap up, you can move to the main stage for Gary Numan’s concert, the San Antonio performance on his second Savage tour! (Tickets are required for this performance.)

With some fantastic door prizes, you may just be going home with a new treasure. But aside from just the gear, Synthomania is also a great place to hang out with synth fans! With so many enthusiastic players in front of so many amazing keyboards, you'll never run out of things to talk about."

This DAW is great for LIVE LOOPING with synthesizers

Published on Aug 23, 2018 BoBeats

"Today I am checking out ALK2 from Zen Audio. It is a DAW built around live looping. Use code bobeats to get 10% off. (valid until 1st of October, 2018)

☀Become a Patron

This video is sponsored by Zen Audio who made this software. In this case it simply means that they made it possible for me to devote time to their software since it is a big undertaking learning a new DAW. They have not influenced what I say in this video. It is my opinion and I stand by it."

Vermona Mono Lancet 15 SN 017698

via this auction

"Mono Lancet ’15 might be small-sized device, despite it is a bona fide analogue synthesizer.
Two oscillators and a noise generator are the foundation for its sound. Together with the musical lowpass filter and VCA it’s capable of producing warm and precious sounds full of character.

Beside its audio qualities Mono Lancet ’15 has a dead simple and intuitive user interface. Each parameter has its own control. We are absolutely convinced that you will quickly learn how to realize your sounds with Mono Lancet ’15 without thinking about what you do.

Expandable with Modular Dock
Mono Lancet ’15’s functionality can even be enhanced using the optional Modular Dock eurorack module. It offers various in- and out-connections to the individual sections of the synthesizer. With just a few additional modules you can multiply the strong sound base of Mono Lancet ’15.

Mono Lancet ’15 is manufactured in our Elektroakustischen Manufaktur in historical Vogtland. For us it is not only a piece of high-quality analogue technology but rather a musical instrument, handmade with love and passion."

Tiptop Audio Fold Processor (Serge based wavefolder and unique sub generator

Published on Aug 23, 2018 DivKidVideo

"*TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW SCROLL DOWN * Here's the Fold Processor from TipTop audio which is inspired by the middle section of the classic Serge Wave Multipliers. It's a great sounding folder with an inject control that adds voltage to adjust and manipulate the symmetry and wave shaping. You can sum two inputs and there's also a unique sub dividing circuit allowing for /1 /2 /4 /8 outputs that you can blend down to one output. The sub divided output is a train of pulse/square waves that adjust and morph depending on the fold and inject levels. Skip around the sections below, watch in full, enjoy and be sure to ask any questions. Cheers! :)"

Critter & Guitari - CA Additive for Organelle

Published on Aug 23, 2018 Critter & Guitari

"Look out! It's the newest additive synth for the Organelle! Use Elementary Cellular Automata to individually control 15 partials of an additive synthesizer. The Cellular Automata (CA) is depicted graphically on the Organelle’s OLED screen. The result is a unique method of modulation with 255 possible patterns, or ‘rules’.

Control the CA tempo, rule, loop length, and synth voice to shape your sound. Latch notes, write a sequence, or send MIDI to CA Additive. Use Ableton Link to wirelessly sync with other devices."

Hendrikson Patch Demos

Published on Aug 23, 2018 Bastl Instruments

"Hendrikson is a guitar/ instrument amplifier and an interface for
external effects processors like stomp boxes. It offers a cheaper
way to have great quality effects in your eurorack system.


Hendrikson, cinnamon VCF and a reverb pedal are in an
oscillating feedback loop. Dynamos inverted envelope follower
compensates the feedback level to prevent clipping.
Tromsos sample and hold is randomly changing cinnamons
cutoff frequency resulting in different tonal resonations.


This is the previous patch without random filter modulation.
A pitch shifter is inserted in the feedback loop.
Hendriksons output volume and the pitch shifters semitone value
are tweaked by hand. The output volume starts and stops the
feedback oscillation, the semitone shift is set back and forth
between -6 and -7 semitones.


Hendriksons wet/dry crossfader is modulated by an envelope.
This controls the amount of pitch delay applied to the master.
The envelope is triggered in sync with the patch by little nerd.


Hendrikson is used as a voltage controlled waveshaper.
A distorted sine wave from cinnamon is used as a sound source.
Tromso modulates the amount of fuzz applied. The modulation ranges from LFO to audio rate and hits some harmonic spots.


Hendrikson and skis control the amount of fuzz on the master
in sync with the rhythm. With the fuzz deactivated there is still
a distortion due to high signal levels going into Hendrikson.
This distortion is also voltage controllable with the crossfader CV


This is the previous patch with a reverb istead of a fuzz and no
Hendrickson is perfect to create gated reverbs from any reverb

Moog Subsequent 37 Custom Patches

Published on Aug 22, 2018 synthartist69

"This is a great sounding Moog synthesizer, no regrets adding it to my arsenal....Love the patch memory...What I would love to see produced is a Subsequent 44. It would have 44 keys and a delay time/feedback time/delay level section. With 44 keys, this would give you the space to do this and to add a BIGGER LCD screen as the one on the 37 is way too small but appreciated for patch storage. Regardless, Moog absolutely rocks!"
