Vintage ARP AXXE Monophonic Analog Synth

via this auction

Note this is for sale from peahix of It's the one featured in this video. You can find audio demos of this exact unit here and here.

"This Axxe was serviced by a qualified tech about a year ago, and at that time it was 100% functional and working well. The keyboard bushings were also replaced. I have not had a chance to use it much since then, so it's likely that it will at least need to be calibrated. Also, since this is an old piece of electronics, the usual caveats apply with respect to its long-term functionality. It will almost certainly need to be maintained by a qualified tech in order to continue working well. Cosmetically it's slightly rough- study pics carefully. The bumper sticker on the back adds an odd bit of charm, so I left it intact, though it should be easy enough for you to remove if you wish..."

Rare Vintage Moog System 55 & LHC Modular Controller For Sale

This one is in via a supporting member of the site. You can find the Moog System 55 listed here, and the left hand controller listed here.

Details on each follow:

"Vintage Moog 55 Modular Synthesizer - now being sold separately from the LHC at a ***hugely reduced price*** - seriously tempting for an original machine with known provenance. An all original vintage Moog 55 Modular Synthesizer. (Note: The incredibly rare factory-custom-made LHC “Left Hand Controller” 3 wheel box has been moved to a separate listing) . This is a complete Vintage Moog 55 Modular Synthesizer that was special ordered directly from Moog in 1979 and delivered to the original owner in 1980. The modules inside show they were assembled between 1974-1980. There have only been 3 owners of this 55... we are all good friends and have worked with many of the same recording artists in LA. This modular sounds amazing and huge! There are several advantages to the Vintage Modular Moog including holding its value, and appreciating over time. This 55 was serviced and restored a few years ago (around ‘09) by Keith Emerson’s Moog tech. Every detail was checked and tested including (fresh keyboard bushings/quiet) etc. It’s in very good shape inside and out. Sequencer is perfect. Has original back-panel perforated boards too. Front panels look great. Maybe 5 small scratches, mainly near screws. Cabinet overall very good: Minor wear. Top cabinet has corner chip around the back. I just tested every module this week and they are all good and sound great. It will leave here all working. Should be ready to play and record, but, since it has sat unused recently, you may wish to exercise the pots and use a jack burnisher here and there. This has a nice switchable power supply for use worldwide. System 55 Modules 5 x 902 Voltage-Controlled Amplifiers 1 x 903A Random Signal Generator 1 x 904A Voltage-Controlled Low-Pass Filter 1 x 904B Voltage-Controlled High-Pass Filter 5 x 911 Envelope Generators 1 x 911A Dual Trigger Delay 1 x 914 Fixed Filter Bank 1 x 921 Voltage-Controlled Oscillator 2 x 921A Oscillator Drivers 6 x 921B Oscillators 1 x 960 Sequential Controller 1 x 961 Interface 1 x 962 Sequential Switch 1 x 992 Control Voltage Panel 1 x 993 Trigger and Envelope Voltages Panel 1 x 994 Dual Multiples Panel 1 x 995 Attenuator 1 x CP2 Console Panel 3 x CP3A Console Panels 1 x CP8 Console Panel 1 x 350 Watt 120 VAC or 230 VAC Switch Selectable Power Supply"

"Ultra RARE Factory Custom Original Moog LHC. Left Hand Controller / 3 pitch-wheel box for Moog Modular. Likely only 2 made. The original owner custom ordered a Moog Modular 55 back in 1979. He asked the Moog company directly to custom-make this for him. They delivered it in 1980. It plugs into the back “accessory port” with a multi-pin connector. It can “normal” to most of the modular, and using switches and a patch or two, quickly set up the wheels for pitch-bends, vibrato, filter sweeps, volume swells, etc. It is a joy to use, works great, and really helps make the performance expressive. One other Moog Modular LHC was made for a famous Jazz artist, that is a friend of the original owner. It was told to me, by him, that there may have only been two of these made. This seems likely, since his was also one of the last modulars made during the original period (see other listing) and modular production stopped roughly a year later. There have only been 3 owners of the vintage Moog Modular 55 that this was custom made for (and that is listed separately today). We are all good friends and have worked with many of the same recording artists. I have never seen another... Nor has any other expert that has seen it! The original serial number and Moog “Custom LHC” tag is still attached to the bottom of the unit. Looks great, works great, highly collectible."

BURG 1K Synth Kit Setup - First Track #volca #DrumBruteImpact #ms70CDR

Published on Nov 11, 2018

"If you like my stuff please support me on and

This first video for the 1K setup that i recorded partially with some of the gear that i already have, i want to going forward add a proper stereo mixer, and a looper, and also another mono synth (not sure about this, but leaning toward a KORG monologue). The final total cost, should not be too steep, goal is around the 1K USD range.

Personally this is a great challenge, going back to my own roots.. and i can already on this first attempt hear how i used to make music before i got this big behemoth of a studio. Scaling things down and working with limitations is great fun and helps to boost creativity.

I hope you like it! :D

* KORG volca keys
* KORG volca bass
* Arturia Drumbrute Impact
* 2x Zoom MS-70 CDR FX pedals

The River & Friends

Published on Nov 11, 2018 coyotesynth

"The River from Baloran is not only a great 8 voice analog polysynth, it is also a control center for your studio. In this example, you will not hear the River only, but many other synths/FX.
In this movie, you can hear 2 River sounds:

- a simple sound bass processed through the GRP A4 BPF filter, animated through its step sequencer synchronised by MIDI. As the River only has a 24dB ladder filter, I wanted to test its oscillator with other filters. This sound uses a individual output, so it is not part of the main mix and is not processed by the River FX. The end of the signal goes to the Strymon Timeline.

- a classic analog pad using the 7 remaining voices. Those voices are processed with the Tri-Chorus and the River Digital FX.

Other sounds are from the analog rytm (processed thru OTO Biscuit bitcrusher/analog filter at the end), Novation Peak for metallic arp sound."

"Finishing jams (or anything!) with a newborn in the house is tricky - but I've realised that what I need is to give myself restrictions - gear, time, complexity, etc. - that has really helped, and it feels great to finish a jam! It's a bit of a chilled, ambient, sleepy, Sunday jam; I hope you enjoy it!"

Studio Electronics ATC1 Chameleon SN 820706

via this auction

"Recently refurbished by professional. Great condition. Works perfectly. Very clean.

Comes with Cartridge Filter Rack and All 4 Cartridges.
TB 303

The Analog Tone Chameleon ATC-1 uses external cartridges for convincing recreation of classic synthesizers and sounds. In fact, the ATC-1 is analog, through and through! It's highly and easily editable, but a bit ugly. It has two LFO's and three envelopes. The filters, however, are on external inter-changeable cartridges. The ATC-1 usually ships with the Minimoog filter cartridge. It sounds pretty convincing too. There are also filters of the Roland TB-303, ARP 2600 and Oberheim SEM each of which cost about $150. With all that analog circuitry they all sound incredible.

There are three envelopes to control VCF, resonance, VCA, OSC2 freq, OSC2 level, pulse width, LFO depth, rate and amount. And there are two great LFOs that will modulate the pitch, VCF freq, resonance, OSC1, OSC2, pulse width, noise and main volume..."
