Synth Stuff Ep. 48 - Moog/Realistic Concertmate MG-1

Published on Sep 17, 2018 tritonrecordings

"The Concertmate MG1 is a Moog-built synthesizer that was branded under 'Realistic' and sold at RadioShack in the U.S. It's very much a budget synthesizer but it has found a cult following as a cheap way of getting Moog sounds on a budget. There are some cool features like the bell tone (ring mod) and polyphony. Moog's most recent synth kind of reminds me of this one... Consider the last bit as foreshadowing!"

*Reverb Sequential Prophet-6 Synth
Collection Sample Pack COMING SOON!*

*Korg Kronos UBER Prophet-6
Sample Collection COMING SOON!!!*

**Spirit ORB flies by my fingers @ 00:14 **

The AWESOME Sequential Prophet-6 in
action showing off it's unique textures,
morphing power, warmth, I love it's sound!!!
This is NOT an OB-6, it is just like the
legendary Sequential Prophet-5 but with
all of the modern goodies you need!!
The only thing I could complain about is
that is is only 49 keys! Wish it had 61 but
I can always play it from another 61 key
synthesizer. Or 73/76 or 88... lolol
Knobs are smooth and easy to control,
the keybed is nice, quick & responsive!
It sounds GREAT! It is way worth the $$!
Special THANK YOU to Shawn Saul! :)

Vintage/Classic Soundset Volume 2 for Prophet 6

"Vintage/Classic soundset Volume 2 for the Sequential Prophet 6
To purchase these sounds visit

I never planned on making a volume 2 of my Vintage/Classic soundset but over the last couple years i've come to know the Prophet 6 even more intimately and found myself creating vintage type sounds that are arguably warmer and more organic than any patches i've made previously so volume 2 quite simply had to happen."

Infinite Electrophone presents: The light controlled drone machine

Published on Apr 29, 2017 InfiniteElectrophone

"This drone machine responds to light - both pitch and filter can be under perimetric control using a flash light. Incredible with an adjustable strobe light. Very warm and fuzzy but can also be resonant and and create viscous squeals."

via this auction

"This auction is for a drone machine that uses light to control the perimeters. This machine is built like a tank and is well suited for live performance / traveling with an extremely solid case and handle. Does really well for lush drones, noise music, sampling, ambient, sound effects, performance, recording, etc. Can be soft and dynamic, and really loud, chaotic, and noisy. Really shines with some effects pedals - a little delay takes to to a new level. Vintage chunky on/off switch, two light sensitive diodes, several knobs and 1/4" output. Runs on 9v battery that will last forever."

It features two VCO's, a VCF, and LFO, 1 amp EG and 1 VCF EG, analog delay and distortion effects, and a gigantic patch bay to integrate into your modular setup (Eurorack).
