Yamaha CSY-1 Vintage Analogue Synth Organ

via this auction

"These are a very interesting and unique sounding instrument. You've basically got a Yamaha SY-1 synth built into an organ. The synth and organ sounds can be layered, synth sound can be played by the upper keyboard or pedals.

Sounds can be routed to stationary or the built in rotary (Leslie) speakers. Lush spring reverb and what in my opinion makes these so special, the touch sensitive upper keyboard, routable to modulation, filter and volume. Amazing for 1974!

Beautiful to play, it's a very expressive synth and has that bubbly, organic early Yamaha analogue synth sound as you would expect. It does in fact use several of the same component modules as the mighty Yamaha GX1 synth and the sound, though monophonic is unmistakably similar."

Cerberus' Four Heads (Akai Timbre Wolf thru Elektron Octatrack MK2)

Published on Sep 27, 2018 HardtekStudios

"Download the audio track for FREE here-
In this video, I have the four individual outs of the Akai Timbre Wolf Going into the four individual inputs of the Elektron Octatrack MK2. Each Octatrack channel has two fx applied to each Timbre Wolf part, to twist them into very different sounds from each other. Even thought they are exactly the same synthesizerx4. Joining these mangled Wolves are metal hits for the main kick & snare, a hyper, chopped up drum loop, and lots of sound design loops. Each mangled by there own set of FX with lots of crossfader controlled scenes to further the animation of sound. The eight part is used asa a master channel for full mix filtering & compression. A bit of extra compression, EQ and verb was added in Logic."

Live Jam #149 Drum Freestyle / Breakbeat / Techno - 4ms stereo triggered sampler, Korg SQ1 60hp Moog

Published on Sep 27, 2018 Monotrail

"I have been looking forward to use the 4ms stereo triggered sampler in combination with the Korg sq1. Both for drums and melodic sequences these two are a really good hands on improvisation duo. This jam was not prepared at all, just pressed record after I had something nice going on, and couldn’t stop anymore. I got into it a few minutes in. All sound is from the sampler. There are no loops, just individual drum samples, and none of them are stock samples. Clouds is responsible for the saturation/distortion and delay.

PS: I have to tweak the volume of the individual samples a bit for a better mix

Vetrice-Euterpe Synthesizer Laboratories /Rebach VCO GR11/Vermona twinCUSSION/Erica Synths-PICO SEQ

Published on Sep 27, 2018 Dziam Bass

"Hi Folks.

this time the powerful analog filter Vertice from Euterpe Synthesizer Laboratories is here and I have a demo movie with it.

It is an analog filterbank with a filter envelope and CV inputs for modulation.

In this Acid sound I used the new analog VCO GR11 from ReBach, it is a Dutch new producer of eurorack modules, but I like this VCO and I wanted to combine it here because both sounds great.

later I added some delay from Erica Synths PICO DSP module.

Kick is a Vermona twinCUSSION double drum module, the clap comes from PICO DRUMS from Erica Synths.

Sequenced VCO GR11 by PICO SEQ -@Erica Erica Synths

the rest you can hear, added a little envelope filter for filtering, here it worked similar to LFO, then some more resonances and delay and without delay.

sound is natural all sounds connected to PICO MIX, later from PICO MIX out directly to the audio interface."
