George Frideric Handel's Sarabande on the Sequential Prophet X

Published on Dec 13, 2018 Sean Christopher - Evoking Emotion Through Music

"For the Sequential Prophet X I decided to do suite 4 of George Frideric Handel's well known Keyboard suite in D minor (HWV 437). The Keyboard suite in D minor (HWV 437) was composed by George Frideric Handel, for solo keyboard (harpsichord), between 1703 and 1706. It is also referred to as Suite de pièce Vol. 2 No. 4. It was first published in 1733.

Only the Prophet X was used for this piece, including the X's built-in FX, and was multi-tracked using Cubase 10."

Random Lights by Baghead

"Four S&H sources and the Benjolin cross connected to the Schlappi ANgle Grinder. A bit rough in spots but now you know how they interact."

via brian comnes:

"This is the simply a Benjolin feeding into a Schlappi Angle Grinder with 4 random S&H cvs

Also the H9 Nebula preset for 'ambience'

Some interesting sections, headphones are a big sub recommended"

Novation MiniNova Synth Editor for iPad │ MIDI Designer Pro - haQ attaQ 308

Published on Dec 13, 2018 Jakob Haq

"Finally, an iPad synth editor for Novation MiniNova and its powered by MIDI Designer pro! It took a huge amount of time to build and offers 98% access to the feature packed MiniNova synth engine. No more jumping menus, just pure insta-tweak patch building! This is the deepest controller I've made so far and its going to save a lot of time for a lot of MiniNova users out there ... wanting to program patches using their iPads of course (if they have iPads).

Now the template isn't perfect and Iv'e left out some controllers. There's even an issue with some stuff and so yeah find out more in this video!

David Van Koeverings Prototype #1 Orchestron

via this auction

"What we have here is a museum find. This is David van koeverings #1 Proto type synthesizer one of a kind. From a collection owned by David. Moog super salesmen responsible for the launch and success of the minimoog. In great condition comes in Viking case. I plugged the orchestron in it powers up but I have no discs to test it..."

via Wikipedia: "Vako Synthesizers Incorporated, founded by electronic instrument pioneer and former Moog technician and salesperson David Van Koevering, started to build improved versions of the Optigan under the name Orchestron in 1975. Intended for professional use as an alternative to the Mellotron (hence the name Orchestron), it featured improved recorded sounds over the Optigan. The Optigan was an organ that played its sounds from light scanned graphic waveforms encoded on film discs. The sounds with the highest fidelity were on the outer rings of these discs. These outer rings were used for the Orchestron sounds to improve the sound. Although the Model A Orchestron is identical to the Optigan, the models B, C, and D follow the designs of the Chilton Talentmaker. The Talentmaker was taken out of the market after Optigan's manufacturer – Optigan corporation, a subsidiary of toy company Mattel – threatened to sue Chilton because of patent infringements..."

Yamaha CS-50 SN 2499

via this auction

"1970s Yamaha CS-50 Analogue synthesizer. These are extremely rare & seldom seen. These were released just ahead of the CS-60 & CS-80. This synth is ideal for those who want the classic Yamaha synth sound without the struggle of lugging around the 215 pound CS-80! The CS-50 is also just 4-voice polyphonic. This particular example has been stored away for some time. It powers on & all keys make sound however there is a serious buzz upon power-up. It will absolutely need a servicing & look through to get it up to par. The wood sides also show some wear."

Korg DW-6000 and Roland JUNO-60

Published on Dec 13, 2018 synthlegends

"Two mid 80ies low budget 6-voice synths with chorus in a duo.

First about 6 minutes you hear mostly the DW-6000, later on the Roland Juno-60. In the end of the video I also play both synths together. Both synths are nice sounding. The very high rated Juno 60 might sound darker and a bit more warm. The DW-6000 is crisp and sounds brighter. The filter of the DW-6000 is gorgeous and sounds sooo powerful. The DW-6000 is really very much underrated and you can get this synth for around 200 Dollar or EUR as a bargain.

Thanks again for watching. I hope you enjoyed the video."

"The drone and strings are Omnisphere imported into the Octatrack. The Octatrack also sequences Nave on the iPad. Nave supplies the metallic-sounding arpeggios, whose timbre can be infinitely modulated with the Kaos pads. Drum samples are rolled in Logic and imported to the TR8s. The brilliant Analog Four does the rest!"

"Monome's killer app - standalone, battery-powered hardware with community-driven scripts, apps etc. for use with MIDI controllers, Grid, or by itself. Worth it alone for the MLR sampler, tbh.

--- From monome:

changes. travels. is open to possibilities.

norns is many sound instruments. it connects to grids, MIDI and other objects. norns lets you define its behavior with scripts and DSP.

past. present. future. norns is many tomorrows.

norns is a small, portable sound computer that dynamically runs scripts and DSP, such as:

sample-cutter (using a grid, aka mlr)
polysynth (connect a MIDI keyboard)
algorithmic drum machine (MIDI CC-mapped)
drone box (no input)
granulator (controlled via OSC using a phone or tablet)
asynchronous looper (stompbox-style)
polyphasic sequencer (using a USB-CV interface to control modular synths)
these are just a few examples. scripts can be created or modified to completely alter the functionality of the system. we maintain a growing repository of scripts which means the machine will continue to have new possibilities.

norns is designed to be changed, encouraging customization and invention."

WWE Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002 Digital Sampler Rack SN 0562

via this auction

Pics of the inside below.

"This unit was originally owned by composer Jim Johnson of the WWE. This sampler was used in Jim's studio for years making it onto many of his recordings. The Sequential Circuits Prophet 2002 is fully functional and in very good condition overall.

The Prophet 2000 was a sampler keyboard manufactured by Dave Smith's Sequential Circuits (SCI) and released in 1985. It was the company's first sampler, and, despite its low quality and technical limitations by modern standards, marked a shift toward affordable samplers of better quality than its predecessors. It is also considered to be one of the earliest multitimbral samplers.

The Prophet 2002, a rack-mounted version of the 2000, and the Studio 440, a drum machine and sequencer that used a similar sampler at its core. Intended to represent Sequential's first entry into the low-cost digital sampler market, the Prophet 2000 was equipped with 256kB sample memory (expandable to 512kB), and selectable sampling rates of 16, 32, and 42 kHz at 12-bit audio resolution. External storage was available through 3.5" diskettes. The Prophet 2000 featured MIDI (in, out, and thru), 8-voice polyphony, up to 8 layers, and an arpeggiator. Despite their technological limitations, early digital samplers like the Prophet 2000 are noted for their warm audio quality as a result of using analog VCFs and VCAs."

AJH Synth MiniMod Sample Hold & Slew // Everything you could want from S&H and more!

Published on Dec 13, 2018 DivKidVideo

"**TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW** Here's the wonderful Sample Hold & Slew from the MiniMod range by AJH Synth. It's really everything you could want from a sample hold as ... you also get track and hold, a great noise source with a clipping option and tonal/colour shift, a gated slew/glide/lag processor with slew time, linear or exponential slew shaping, options to slew up (rising) / down (falling) or both movements in voltages. The internal clock source is always present on the output even when clocking externally so when you slew that you have a handy shapeable bonus LFO. Last but not least there's a totally unique restrict feature that restricts the potential range of movements between steps without restrict the overall output range.

I tried to make this a real education/tutorial thing for sample and hold, noise sources, slew + track and hold so I hope it's a useful resource for learning about synthesis too.
