EDP Wasp and Spider and Road Case

via this auction

"Electronic Dream Plant Wasp and Spider. Also included is a custom Anvil road case that fits the two pieces, and a 7-pin DIN cable to connect the Wasp and the Spider. Both pieces are in very good cosmetic and functional condition. These were obtained from the original owner who packed them away in the 80's and never brought them back out till recently, which accounts for their condition. The battery compartment on the Wasp shows no sign of battery leakage, but the battery terminals have been cut out."

via this auction

"For your consideration is a beautiful Oberheim Four Voice. The synth has been serviced recently and is in very good shape. The original tolex, on the body of the synth was replaced with white vinyl material sometime in the 1970's. It still looks good, and the lid to the Four Voice still has it's original black tolex.
Only offering local pickup for this big one.

Oberheim only made about 800 of these between 1974-79. Each voice has its own module each containing all analog synthesis with 2- voltage controlled oscillators per voice module and with some external programming capability. There is a two-pole multimode VCF, VCA, two ASR envelope generators, and one LFO. Memory contains 16 presets, VCO:8 (sawtooth, square or pulse), LFO:4, Portamento, Vibrato,VCF(bandpass, lowpass, notch, highpass)
This model includes the Polyphonic Synthesizer Programmer which stores 16 patches per voice and was recently fully serviced and calibrated (over $800 service). Includes the cover and a well-used but readable original manual."

Published on Nov 16, 2018 Peter Grenader

"How to replicate the sound of spastic cellos much like Elliot Carter's acoustic cello part in his 6th String Quartet.


Before you snark me, you'll understand my humor in the first 20 seconds on this instruction. ha ha. If you watch the rest you may get some insight on how to create some really interesting cello timbres using granular synthesis on a modular. enjoy (or not!)"

Planar 2 Gets Wild With Rainmaker

Published on Nov 16, 2018 Intellijel

"Using an audio rate source to trigger the shaped pulse on Rainmaker can yield some interesting results. Especially when you modulate a few parameters with Planar 2!

In this case the SENSE output is opening a VCA to allow a Dixie Pulse wave to activate Rainmaker's TRIG input. Planar is providing modulation to the DELAY and COMB feedback through A and C; X and Y are controlling SIZE and 1V/OCT in the Comb section; Finally B is sent to Rainmakers MOD input and D is providing FM to Dixie."

New Sequential Prophet XL Now Shipping

Announced October 23, the new Sequential Prophet XL is now shipping.

"Sequential Ships Prophet XL 76-Key Samples-Plus-Synthesis Poly Synth

Instrument Features 2.0 OS with Expanded Polyphony, New Loop, Modulation, and Effect Options

San Francisco, CA—Nov 16, 2018—Sequential today announced that the Prophet XL — a 76-key version of their flagship Prophet X samples-plus-synthesis hybrid synth — is now shipping. The instrument debuts a 2.0 version of the OS for both the Prophet XL and Prophet X that adds significant new features including 32-voice performance mode, forward/backward sample looping, new modulation destinations (Hack, Decimate, and instrument playback delay), a new Ring Mod effect, and several other enhancements.

The Prophet XL boasts the same powerful combination of high-fidelity samples from 8Dio and full synthesis capabilities that has earned its 5-octave sibling, the Prophet X, critical acclaim — but makes the concept even more compelling for studio and stage by adding a semi-weighted-action, 76-key, premium-quality Fatar keybed.

At the heart of both the Prophet XL and the Prophet X is a sound engine that powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two high-resolution digital oscillators with waveshape modulation — all processed through analog filters. In standard performance mode, the instrument provides bi-timbral, 8-voice stereo, or 16-voice mono operation. 32-voice performance mode, which is a feature of the new 2.0 OS, allows paraphonic filter operation when using a single sampled instrument and oscillator.

Dave Smith commented: “We designed the Prophet XL for musicians who wanted more of a good thing. By adding an extended, semi-weighted action keyboard and enabling 32-voice performance mode, we’ve made it even more satisfying to play the acoustic and electric pianos and other instruments where increased polyphony is crucial. Of course 32-voice mode is also enabled on the Prophet X with OS 2.0, so all of our users benefit.”

Sample content for the Prophet X series was created by sound developers 8Dio, known for pioneering “deep sampling.” Regarding the new instrument, 8Dio co-founder Troels Folmann said: “For us, it’s all about giving musicians the best tools to express themselves. The Prophet XL is a great enhancement of the original Prophet X concept. More keys and more voices means more room to explore and create.”

The 150 GB sample library in the Prophet XL and Prophet X includes numerous acoustic and electronic instruments as well as an extensive collection of ambient and cinematic effects. Users can shape the samples through loop manipulation, sample stretching, and the synthesizer’s many sound-sculpting functions which include 4 envelope generators, 4 LFOs, a deep modulation matrix, and other tools. The Prophet XL and Prophet X also provide 50 gigabytes of internal storage for importing additional samples. Additional sample expansion packs are available from 8Dio. Support for user-created sample content is scheduled for December, 2018.

The Prophet XL is available now with a MAP of $4,399.

Version 2.0 of the Prophet X/XL OS can be downloaded from the Support page of the Sequential website."

Moffenzeef Modular Stargazer // In depth demo & deep dive into a cosmic world of hands on drones

Published on Nov 16, 2018 DivKidVideo

"**TIMING INDEX BELOW** Here's my in depth demo / feature run down and deep dive into the Stargazer. The first video I made (below) was just patches and no talking, the third sand final (for now) video will more of the Stargazer with FX and drums so watch out for that too. I go through the oscillators, filters, bit crush / downsample, wavetable LFOs and more. Timing index and sections below to skip around if you're just curious about certain sections.

This is part 2 (the main demo/overview) of 3 videos I have planned with the Stargazer. Here's the first video with more patches and NO TALKING! - [posted here]


00:13 Patch previews

01:02 What is the Stargazer?

01:48 VCO(s) - looking at the wavetables, how the dual VCO set up works, detune and subs.

04:56 Filter 1 - post VCO (obviously?) but pre everything else.

05:51 Alias and Redux - or downsample and bit crush

07:53 Filter 2 - clean up all that noisy lush digital mess before the final VCA

08:34 VCA and CMOS Distortion

09:24 the 3 wavetable LFOs, waves, rate, depth and destinations

12:40 3 different drones / musical gestures and sound FX to round out the video."

With the VCO-A, LFO-B, ADSR-A and VCF-A good ACID style can be made.

Here is a single VCO and an LFO that modulates the VCF. The LFO makes the VCF sounds rhythmic."

Casio Casitone MT-205 & CVOCD

Published on Nov 16, 2018 midierror

"Using the external input, its possible to trigger the 8 drum sounds and sequence them using a CVOCD!

This required 4 stereo cables split into 8 mono jacks - and a quick configuration of the CVOCD. Everything is sequenced in Ableton Live!

This actually triggers notes as the note offs are sent in Ableton. I tried some workarounds in Max4Live and with S-Trig to V-Trig cables, but they worked just as well as this method."

Akai S700 Sampler - Pure magic for next to nothing!

Published on Nov 16, 2018 Espen Kraft

"My first sampler (Akai X7000) in module form. With one of the more warm and creamy analog filters of any sampler. Even if the filter is not resonant and even if the sampler has no ADSR envelopes, just a release, it has a nice deep low end and a magic sound to it.
It can be had for next to nothing these days and well worth picking up and use. In fact it should cost a lot more based on sound only.
I judge a samplers filter based on how it sound on a synth string type of sound so you'll hear no beats in this demo. ;-)"
