The Voice of Q

Published on Oct 22, 2018 VoiceEncoder
Update: looks like VoiceEncoder pulled the video.
I found other uploads and a link to the 12" on Bandcamp for those interested.
This of course went up as a demo of the Sennheiser Vocoder VSM201 according to the original description from VoiceEncoder further below.

"12" Now On Bandcamp:

The leftfield electro disco gem originally released in 1982 finally gets an official reissue. Bootlegged badly in recent years, Isle Of Jura does it right with fully remastered versions from Matt Colton and the added inclusion of a previously unreleased Q song ‘Keep It Strong’."

Original description from VoiceEncoder:

"Q: 'The Voice of Q' (Full VINYL album uploaded in 1080p HD). Sennheiser Vocoder VSM201. Full VINYL album.

"Beautiful mint condition Sequential Circuits T8. An 8 voice polyphonic synth. Currently belongs to Chromeo (proof will be provided to buyer if requested).

This particular synth was used in many recordings. Selling to get funds to build a mega monster modular. If you're looking at this you probably don't need an intro to this beast.

Museum quality condition. Smoke free studio all it's life. It plays, sounds and feels like it's new. Even though it didn't need servicing it still went under the microscope at Rosen Sound to make sure it was running perfectly inside and out. Stays in tune. The weighted keys feel incredible."

Yamaha DX7II + Roland Juno 60 + Roland TR707 AMAZING Electric piano!

Published on Oct 22, 2018 synthartist69

"In this video I am playing the Yamaha DX7 for electric piano, a Roland Juno 60 for bass which I have synced to the Roland TR707 drum machine. I am using very little reverb on the DX7.. no chorus. The chorus effect that you hear on the piano is built into the patch (I did not create this patch). Although I have never been a fan of the DX7 series, there is one thing that I can say about these, they produce excellent electric piano patches! This patch just makes me melt when I hear it..."

Supporters of MATRIXSYNTH get %10 off at Perfect Circuit!


"This delay effect from Teile is a stereo delay designed for DJ use with arcade style buttons for tap tempo and punching the effect in and out. The delay also works great with synths or in the send of your mixer in a live synth setup. We used the Korg Volca Kick as the sound source for this video.

Black Teil1 Keinedelay available here:
Silver Teil1 Keinedelay available here:"

"The Teil1 Keinedelay is a compact DJ effects box that simulates a tape delay and sports 4 knobs that's great for a variety of live performance effects to give any DJ set a little flair. Inspired by the Boss DD-7 Delay, the Teil1 can loop up to 12-seconds and has intricate parameterized timing selection. MOM stands for momentary, when this is activated signal only is sent to the FX loop when on. When FX effects from mixers are not enough, reach for the Teil1.

Roland Jupiter-8 SN 181894 w/ Encore MIDI

via this auction, also on eBay here with different pics. This is synthartist69's Jupiter-8 featured back in April here.


via this auction

"The Europa upgrade gives extra MIDI functionality such as recording slider movements/ aftertouch response etc and gives increased memory storage and arpeggiator possibilities along with new wave selection possibilites for each VCO

1 Extra to the original output jack - The old tape out & in Jacks have been replaced with seperate outputs for the upper and lower synths so they can be mixed seperately giving amazing flexiblity for effects and in whole mode can create massive sounds.

2 The LFO 2 on the bender board has been modified so that instead of the old slim limited range of oscillation it can now go from extremely High to extremely low making LFO 2 really creative in synthesis which it was not before as it was meant as a tremello expressive effect. It still can be used for this purpose."

NEW Tiptop Audio MIX7 // Eurorack Analog Summing Mixer

Published on Oct 22, 2018 once upon a synth

"Tutorial/demo of the new MIX7 summing mixer eurorack module by Tiptop audio. You can use this to mix audio, CV or gates/triggers. In this vid I start off by going over the basics, then do a few demo and finally end with a mini-review.

Official info:
MIX7 is a seven channel analog summing mixer module for Eurorack. It is designed for summing any of the different types of signals you’ll find in a modular system: Audio, CV, Triggers, or Gate.

MIX7 gives ability to sweeten your mix with more headroom using the power of low noise analog summing. A compact 3HP Eurorack utility module, MIX7 is an attractive mixing addition to any rig, especially with the ability to also combine rhythms, note patterns or CV automations from different control sources. The main output of one section can be connected to the input of another MIX7 to create larger mixing groups and complex signal routes inside your modular.

The MIX7 summing mixing circuit is built with low-noise operational amplifiers, giving it an excellent sound quality for mixing audio, the beautiful texture of classic analog mixing with plenty of headroom to handle hot modular signals, and the versatility to sum non-audio signals in your system to open up new creative possibilities."
