Roland SH-01A Layered with Moog Model D

Published on Dec 2, 2018 synthartist69

"I thought I would post something a little different from most of the SH-01A videos so I chose to midi the Moog Model D up with it. I probably should have done this before as I quickly discovered that these two make a great match! I added a little delay to the SH-01A, the Model D is dry. Thanks for watching!"

MiMa feat. Micheal Jackson - Thriller on the Roland Jupiter-6

"Inspired by this Doctor Mix's video: [posted here]

I created my own cover of this great song. This is by far my biggest project, I was working on it for months.

Who needs a Jupiter 8 and a MiniMoog to do Thriller? :-D
All the synth parts are from my Roland Jupiter 6 and the Fender Rhodes piano is from my Roland RD700GX.

Here you can find the full recording, complete with all the vocal parts:"

Modular Synth Ambient Music (in HDR on supported devices) #TTNM

"Chill out for a few minutes, listening to this ambient synthesizer music track. MORE INFO BELOW :)


PixelNoises Synth T-Shirts by The Tuesday Night Machines:


Audio gear used:
Tangible Waves AE Modular Synthesizer, with two DIY modules:

Touch Sensitive Controller
The Grand Square

I'm using the FSRs and mixers to fade sounds in and out mostly.

This video was 'mastered' in HDR, by the way, so if you watch it on an HDR-capable device in the official YouTube app, the image will look even more trippy."

Vintage Moog Taurus 1 Pedals

"This set is in excellent condition and working 100%. It has just been professionally serviced and with some restoration.

The original contact board will be included."

"The Rhythm 80 is a fantastic analogue drumbox made by HOHNER, the makers of Clavinet. It's quite rare. It is the "K" version (Rhythm 80K), which is built into a black case for the road use. Excellent hardware quality made in (Western) Germany! It has a fantastic fat, analogue sound and 20 rhythms which are variable - 80 rhythms in total. FADE OUT controls. Very effective TREBLE/BASS controls. Mono jack output. Start/Stop switch jack. 7 segment LED display delivers accurate tempo settings. CYMBAL is cancelable."

Boss Dr Synth DS330 Synthesizer Module w/ Original Box

via this auction

Here's a somewhat interesting item. It looks more like a drum machine than desktop synth. The only other post to feature the Boss DS-330 is this audio demo from Ununseptium Warehouse.


via this auction

"This is a mint condition Access Virus ti 2 Polar DARKSTAR with original box, usb cable and power adapter. Still has plastic on screen and has always been covered from dust with a cover from Digital Deck Covers This is the limited addition model with different color scheme compared to normal Polar. This works perfectly and was rarely used. This is the new version which can be seen by the power adapter, older polar keyboards have external ac adapters. Connects perfectly with DAW and can be used via its plug-in thanks to the total integration. This is a staple in the electronic dance music scene and is capable of so much more."

Ye Olde Grassi Organ

Ciat-Lonbarde Grassi Organ - Meng Qi PCB (assembled) portable noise synthesizer

via this auction

Assembled by the seller isohedra.

"output jacks are 1/4"

this is a pretty weird noise beast and each one is a bit different.
here's a video of this exact build being played with for a couple minutes :]
you can use your fingers or hook the pads up to some other contact points. say using alligator clips to wire up other objects that you can be more aggressive with, while keeping the grassi safe. it has some metal standoffs that could be removed to allow for screwing it down onto a piece of wood / case / etc.

there are also 2 connections for speakers if you wish to wire/solder some very small ones onto a case / board etc that you hook this up to."

Sequential Circuits Prophet VS Rackmount Synth SN 0069

via this auction

"All controls work as they should, most importantly the joystick which has seen very little actual use (i've always used an external joystick on the sy35 mapped to it to keep it low use). Some of the buttons, especially the blue patch selection buttons, are a little bit stubborn though this hasn't been a huge problem since I just use a controller keyboard / ableton to switch patches. These are absolutely amazing sounding machines, but not much fun to program from the front panel so I'd recommend using a software editor and patch librarian. Firmware version is v1.1 but I expect whoever buys it will want to put in their preferred version, I understand a homebrewed v1.3 is actually in the works from a private party you may want to look into which adds functions like LFO sync/unsync. Replica CEM5530s are also being made in limited runs, though the originals in this one still work just fine." Pics of the inside below.

Roland MKS-30 Planet-S Cheerful Cetaceans by Landosonic

Published on Dec 2, 2018 LANDOSONIC

"Roland's MKS-30, also known as Planet-S, is doing 2 percussion tracks and 2 melodic arpeggiated lines here with panning left/right. In addition, I used Native Instruments' Absynth 5 Preset 'Akustikly Inklined' with heavy pitchbend for the cetaceans' voices.

For digital FX I utilized N.I. Reaktor 5 again, it is completely mind-boggling in view of the versatility of the NI Reaktor User Library to which one gets access with their Reaktor license.

This track showcases what can be achieved when even a humble DCO synth as the MKS-30 finds itself in talented hands. The attached hardware programmer PG200 helps tremendously in the creative process."

Composing video game music with only one synth (Waldorf Blofeld)

Published on Dec 2, 2018 once upon a synth

"I attempt to compose music for an imaginary RPG video game called 'Super Synth Nerd'. I'm using only one synth for all the sounds. The synth is the Waldorf Blofeld which is a digital polyphonic synth which can do wavetable synthesis as well as traditional subtractive synthesis. #onesynthchallenge

I decided to approach this using a narrative story arc. So we start in a happy place, then the hero enters a tavern and gets assigned a mission. He then goes off on his adventure when suddenly he runs into a boss (a ghost). After beating the boss everything is good in the world. The End. lol... ok I had to keep it super generic and compact otherwise this would have taken too long.

The pixel art at the end of the video was drawn and animated with Hexels 3. This is my first attempt at making pixel art so go easy on me :)."
