Hillwood PO 500 Combo Organ 70's Rare Analog Synth test


Published on Dec 6, 2018 SUBTOKYOSHOP

I believe this is the first Hillwood PO 500 Combo Organ to be featured on the site. Sounds more synth than organ.

SN 23166

Note it only has a single Tone knob from Soft to Hard on the left, and a vibrato switch on the right. Interesting piece of kit.

"I haven't done a Nyborg 24 tweaking video so I did this one. I have to warn you it can get a bit rowdy sound wise with a few ear splitting frequencies. No real plan only than to tweak a few different sounds, which sometimes sound good and sometimes are just noise! hence the name of the video :)"

Novation // Start Making - Trap


Published on Dec 6, 2018 NovationTV

"For the next video in our Start Making series, we headed to a skate park to pull a load of samples and then used a Launchpad Pro (and only what comes in the box) to make a trap track.

What do you get with Launchpad Pro?
The sounds in the video are sampled using an iPhone and input into Ableton Live Lite, alongside the Bass Station plug-in, V-Station plug-in and an XLN Addictive Keys Instrument (one from a choice of four!).

Shortwave eurorack techno drone with RF Nomad


Published on Dec 6, 2018 While We Were Sleeping

"Using the eurorack RF Nomad by Evaton Technologies a Shortwave Eurorack Receiver, to spice up a techno/drone Jam,
This was recorded a while back (facebook live) and was one of my first jams with the Malekko Heavy Industry voltage block. I got stuck on a single channel single step because that was as much fun as I could handle at the time :) The voltage block is controlling the Fonitronik Thomas Henry 555 VCO with no filter or vca, just raw oscillator goodness.
Both the RF Nomad and the TH 555 are DIY builds from Thonk

Strange Science Instruments F-1: Stereo Lowpass Filter / Dual Moog Ladder action in Eurorack


Published on Dec 6, 2018

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** Here's the stereo (linked operation) or dual Moog style transistor ladder low pass filter eurorack module from Strange Science Instruments. The F-1 gives you two filters with 2, 3 or 4 pole operation, options to link filters for more extreme filtering (up to 48dB per octave response), formant FX, audio rate modulation is lovely and I also show you how to make a high pass filter out of a low pass filter.

"String Studio VS-3 is a synthesizer in which a collection of unique string oscillators replaces the traditional VCOs, DCOs, and operators as the main sound source in VST2, VST3, Audio Units (AU), and AAX formats for Reason, Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Cubase, Reaper, Cakewalk, Sonar, FL Studio, and many more. Try String Studio VS-3 for free.

Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS) was founded in 1998 and is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. As a privately-held company, it specializes in software-based synthesis tools for professional musicians and sound designers. Since releasing Tassman, the first virtual instrument based on physical modeling, AAS has come to be recognized as the industry leader in this exciting new field of synthesis.

§ WHAT’S NEW §
We have streamlined String Studio and brought it to a whole new level.

NEW Two-Voice Multitimbral
String Studio VS-3 combines two independent timbres—either stacked or split—to create performance-friendly, texture-full, and spacious sounds that are sure to make a good impression.

NEW Modulators
String Studio VS-3 now boasts two performance modulators per layer that respond to user-defined MIDI controls. Each and every sound features effect and morphing assignments that can be played in real time for enhanced expressivity and sonic dimension.

PEPPED Factory Library​
A long and fastidious process of fine-tuning went down in the AAS quarters. Each and every sounds went under the eyes of all team members to exit with a consistent gain-stage, unity-gain effects, better dynamics, and compelling real-time sound transformation assignments. This is our most perfected sound library to date.

French Connection


Published on Dec 6, 2018 theianboddy

"The Analogue Systems French Connection keyboard mimics the playing technique of the Ondes Martenot. The ring & wire control the pitch and the button on the left, in this instance, is controlling Volume, filter cutoff & PWM as well as the Morph X on the Morphing Terrarium.

The Roland System 500 is providing the main lead voice from the 510 module. The 555 module is doing the various CV modulations as well as the White Noise source. The dual filter 505 is treating the white noise & low drone. This drone is coming from the Synthesis technology Morphing Terrarium with Mutable Instruments Clouds providing the delay & reverb FX."

How To Play "Video Killed The Radio Star" On The Voyetra 8

Published on Dec 6, 2018 Doctor Mix

"Here's the über rare Voyetra 8 vintage synth and how we used it to recreate Video Killed The Radio Star by "The Buggles". Discover UVI's PX V8. Download the Multi-Track of this video for FREE now: https://www.doctormix.com/video-kille..."


"PX V8 is based on an exceedingly rare American polyphonic analog synthesizer, the Voyetra Eight. Released by Octave-Plateau Electronics in 1982, this unassuming 3-space rackmount synth is a 78 lb. analog powerhouse sporting 8 voice cards and an incredibly deep modulation system. With 6 pages of parameters to customize the Voyetra Eight was nothing if not flexible, but in the end it's the sound that counts and it does not disappoint. Thanks to subtle differences in each of the voice cards and a powerful unison mode, the Voyetra Eight delivers a wonderfully uncompromising analog sound with rich, powerful leads, thick basses, warm, modulating pads, strings and more. A unique instrument with a sound greater than the sum of its parts, the Voyetra Eight packs a huge analog punch into a small frame that until now has largely been lost to time.

PX V8 has been a passion project, it took us 2 years to track down a Voyetra Eight, and even then it required significant work to restore to factory condition. Our sound designers spent over 6 months creating sounds with the Voyetra for PX V8; learning the instruments structure, designing patches, exploring possibilities, recording and editing. We tested numerous configurations of cables and converters to ensure you'd experience the highest quality sound before settling on Vovox and Prism, the results are clear.

PX V8’s sampling was made per-key for every patch we designed, both with and without unison mode engaged allowing you to enable genuine hardware unison on any sound in the library. Just like on the Voyetra Eight you can load two layers at once, and with the unison mode engaged you can create truly massive analog sounds without worrying about an 8 voice ceiling.

In the end we recorded over 25,000 samples from the Voyetra - packing PX V8 with a whopping 400 presets made from 176 layers, divided into 10 categories including bass, brass, keyboards, leads, misc, organs, pads, poly, strings and waveforms. Each of the sounds is fully customizable and can be used straight-away or as the starting point for a new sound. Raw waveforms are also available for those who want to create sounds from scratch.

PX V8's aesthetic was adapted to closely mimic design cues from the hardware, giving you the feel of the original instrument as you easily tweak and edit the oscillators, envelopes, multimode filter, LFO and step modulators, dual arpeggiators and a featured effect section including EQ, drive, Thorus, ensemble, Phasor, delay and Sparkverb.

Rare and relatively unknown, the Voyetra Eight is not the simplest synthesizer to master - but the sounds it can create are brilliant, making PX V8 one of our most unique and inspiring libraries yet.

PPG wave 2.2 Wavetable Synthesizer (1982) The 30 original PPG Wavetables


Published on Dec 6, 2018 RetroSound

"(c) 2018 vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound

This demo video shows the 30 raw original wavetables from the PPG wave 2.2 synthesizer from the year 1982.

Wavescanning with envelope 1, VCF is full open, no resonance.
Each wavetable has 64 waveforms.

PPG wave wavetables:
00. Harmonics 1-8 very strong, simulation of a
resonant filter, wave number 00 is a sine.

01. Similar to wavetable 00, but with additional
higher harmonics, dual VCF simulation

02. Similar to two previous wavetables, but
also good for vibes, bells, tubular bells.

03. Sine-to-rectangular sweep, low-resonance
VCF simulation, like for clarinette and flute.
