Vintage Stepp DGX Midi Guitar Synth Controller with LSU X, Cables, Manual & Cases

via this auction

"This is a midi controller only and does not make sound of its own. It has been tested and powers up, display works, buttons work, sends midi to a midi device. However, I did not have the time to get into the programming to make sure of all of its features, there are way to many to test. I simply made sure it was transmitting midi to a midi device only. It is deep as far as the menus within, so getting it to do what you want will take time and patience. It is missing 1 part that screws into the bottom of the DGX, but is for look more than functionality in my opinion."

DU-INO Jam: Double PLSR Stochastic Drum Sequencer

Published on Sep 18, 2018 Logick Workshop

"Demonstrating an example function on the DU-INO: two PLSR stochastic drum sequencers synchronized for a total of 8 drum pattern triggers.

It works like a standard 16-step drum sequencer, but the probabilities of the 1, 2, 3, and 4 hits (which can be placed in any of the patterns) are controlled by the corresponding CV input. Bring your drum patterns to life!

1970s Crumar CPB-2 Synthesizer Powered Bass Pedals

via this auction

"1970's Crumar CPB-2 bass synthesizer pedal system in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Unlike the bass pedal extensions that were offered with many combo organs in the years preceding the Crumar CPB-2, this unit is a powered, self-contained bass pedal system, with VCF parameters for envelope, cutoff, and resonance. Able to produce a Moog-esque thickness and width, this Crumar offers 13 pedals and a wide range of easily accessible options with large buttons that make it easy to switch settings on the fly either by selecting the footswitches or moving the oversized Sustain and Volume wheels. The 32'/16' switch essentially controls the depth of the signal, while the Doubling switch has a chorusing sound. The Waveform switch alternates between a smoother, warmer sound and a signal that has a bit of bark and fuzziness. And lastly, a tuning knob makes it very easy to tweak the CPB-2 and ensure it's always at concert pitch."

1980s Roland RS-09 Vintage Analog Synthesizer Organ Strings 09 w/ Case

via this auction

"1980's Roland RS-09 Organ/Strings analog synthesizer in exceptional condition and in good working order. Just imported directly from Japan, this synth is near mint and complete with its original brown leather carrying case. The Roland RS-09 is a 44 key, fully polyphonic bi-timbral (organ and string) analog synthesizer, featuring tone control, chorus, and vibrato. The string sound and organ sounds are all analog and can be played simultaneously or individually. An ensemble/chorus effect adds depth to the sound and is derived from Roland's famous chorus effect. It's a very easy to use yet versatile synth with an oscillator section and 2-vco architecture."

The video was made with Screenflow."

New Vector Hardware Desktop Synthesizer In the Works

Published on Sep 18, 2018 Vector


I took a closer look at the video and the image to the left. It looks like the Orbit and Suborbit controls are for the vector portions of the synth engine. If you are not familiar with vector synthesis, it was introduced with the Sequential Circuits Prophet-VS. That tech made it to the Yamaha SY22 and TG-33, and finally the KORG Wavestation. In short, you have four oscillators that you can morph between with either a joystick or a modulation source. The Orbit and Suborbit controls appear to be the modulators as you can see on the screen. It's similar to being able to record and playing joystick movement on the SY22 and TG33. It's also similar to the paths in Moog's Animoog app.

Below is a list of controls I spotted in the video and the image. If I missed any, feel free to leave a comment. Note Vector synths typically have four oscillators. The screen in the video only shows two, so we will have to wait and see. You can see the synth features overdrive, reverb, delay, and chorus effects. There is also an arpeggiator and audio iput.

Update2: grabbed a screen of the quick front panel flash in the video. Click on it to zoom in a little. You should be able to read most of the controls.

I need one of these for my lap. Curious of the balance would be right.

"This stand has been precision machined to give a snug fit for the Arturia Keystep.

The keystep sits in a recess to stop it from moving or sliding, gripped by the sides this forms a strong and sturdy stand for your Keystep.

The Oak has been oiled and is ready to assemble and should stay looking beautiful for a long time.

NOTE: you must buy your own Arturia Keystep and all other synths as all you will get is 2 wooden cheeks, cross bar, shelf, screws, allen key and rubber feet."

New Electro-Harmonix Mod Rex Polyrhythmic Modulator

Published on Sep 18, 2018 EHX

"The MOD REX is a kinetic tour-de-force that lets you weave compelling, shifting, musical tapestries. Whether you are a guitarist, synthesist or electronic musician you will find it inspires your creativity and stretches your musical boundaries.

Learn more:

The heart of the pedal are its four, independent modulation sections synced in time, they are:

MOD features great sounding EHX Vibrato, Flanger, Chorus or Phaser. The Depth knob lets you set the amount of the effect while Feedback controls the resonance of the Flanger and Phaser.

TREM delivers tremolo, an effect that modulates the volume of your signal. The Depth control sets tremolo intensity.

PAN modulates between left and right in stereo operation. In mono operation the PAN section acts as another tremolo section, but with the wave shapes all inverted!

FILTER offers a choice of a modulated LPF, HPF or BPF. In LPF (low pass filter) frequencies above a modulated cutoff point are cut. In HPF (high pass filter) frequencies below a modulated cutoff point are cut, and in BPF (band pass filter) frequencies above and below a modulated center point are cut.

Each section also features a choice of four LFO shape options: rising sawtooth, triangle, falling sawtooth or square wave. They affect the way the modulation transitions and provide advanced creative control over the specific section as well as the way they interact with each other.

Upcoming Tinami MD-1 is Modular

via Tinami:

"YES! MD-1 is modular 🙌

Some of you have been asking us about this new feature and we are excited to let you know that MD-1 is actually modular.

MD-1 mainboard and components are designed to be easily rearranged by any of you with just a screwdriver and a minimal set of skills.

So what does it means? If you're feeling that your MD-1 needs a different layout just disassemble the case and rearrange the components.

Check our brand new logo shaped components PCB!
How can I get some extra components?
We are going to sell extra components to those who already have their controller and need some extra components for more versatility. We are actually thinking to add this new reward to our Kickstarter campaign.

Is this already working?
All the hardware is already done! We are working to add an affordable alternative for sensing each component, so every time a user rearranges MD-1 components our MIDI editor software automatically reads the controller's new layout. This is truly important for us, since we want it to be very simple for you every time you want to rearrange the layout."

Erica Synths- Pico VOICE -Karplus Strong synthesis with Pico DSP Reverb

Published on Sep 18, 2018 Dziam Bass

"Hi GUYS!!!
How much can happen one day ?
Well - a lot when you know your modules !!!
I have a small movie with the modul Erica Synths PICO VOICE in one of 8 modes of synthesis in it and exactly KARPLUS STRONG !!!
PICO VOICE has been patched with the trigger for S&H and later to the main clock with sequencer 1v / oct, added a little NOISE BURST and DISTORTION built in it !!!
the next step is to add the PICO DSP module and create space with REVERB.
Drums come from the PICO DRUMS I modules and are plugged into the PICO TRIGG trigger.
in 2 minutes it shows this simple connection in music !!!
also take a look at Erica Synths to the website when 40% OFF goes on their chosen modules !!!
leave a comment what you think about this small module PICO VOICE because it is small but has huge possibilities like most modules from PICO series !!!"

Three 101-VCF Modules Polyphonic Filter Demo 03 (Roland SH-101)

Published on Sep 18, 2018 gstormelectro

"Audio and Video by G-Storm Electro c. 2018

Today I deploy THREE 101-VCF modules for some polyphonic synth music.
The three filters are getting their Envelope CVs round-robin much like a polyphonic synthesizer distributes their voices.
To do this I use the sequential switch to rotate the
firing of envelope contours going to each 101-VCF.

Pittsburgh Synth Box - 101-VCF #1
DNA Symbiotic Waves - 101-VCF #2
Rozendall CEM3340 VCO - 101-VCF #3
Bass - Behringer Model D
Pads - Roland Juno-1
Envelope Contours - 2xADSR dual envelope
Sequencing - Arturia Beatstep Pro Pitch CV and clock
Kick - Future Retro Transient
Hats - Tiptop Hats909
Additional percussion - Roland TR-606
Delay - Timefactor
Small amount of Reverb - Strymon Big Sky

Recorded live in one shot.
Some post-processing in Cubase 7."

2hp Euclid (euclidean rhythm generator)

Published on Sep 18, 2018 DivKidVideo

"Here's Euclid the Euclidean rhythm generator from 2hp. It takes a clock or trigger and generators Euclidean rhythms of varying lengths, with varying active steps and offset to shift the pattern around a musical bar/phrase. There's CV over length and steps and a reset to get everything back to step 1 and in sync with your other sources. A fun little unit and a useful one for rhythmic control.

A great online tool for learning about and playing with Euclidean Rhythms -"

Arturia-MiniBrute 2 with Reverb

Published on Sep 18, 2018 Dziam Bass

"Hi Folks !!!
This time something with keyboard and sequencer, more precisely ARTURIA Minibrute 2.
Yeahhh !!!
There is some fun with the BP I LP filter on higher tones.
the sequence from the built-in sequencer from Minibrute 2 has sometimes added a little noise to the sound. I used it for the PICO DSP reverb module from Erica Synths for larger space.
you know Arturia MInibrute has already established opinions as a good aggressive synth, the patchbay in Minibrute 2 has 48 modulation inputs to connect with your semi modular synths or your modular. it's also patched in itself as a powerful beast !!!"
