"Let Beauty Loose" Nitzer Ebb extended remix/cover Korg MS-20 mini + Korg Volca Sample demo

Published on Feb 11, 2019 Mattelica

"Live extended remix/cover of Nitzer Ebb's "Let Beauty Loose" with the Korg MS 20 mini (sequenced with a Korg Monologue) + Korg Volca Sample to a Roland VS880 HDR to a Canon 6D + 50mm 1.4 lens."

Multivox MX65 String Synthesizer SN 565246

via this auction

"The MX65 is a lovely sounding vintage string synthesizer with that classic warm sound. This synth is comparable to a Solina or Roland Saturn string synth with features like ensemble and basic but useful tone shaping of filter, envelope and vibrato settings.

This instrument is in great condition and was recently serviced by our in house repair technician."

ARP Solus Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Solus is a wonderful vintage analog synthesizer from ARP. The voice is very similar to the famous odyssey with two VCOs, LFO, and low pass filter. A few sections are stripped down a bit to keep a smaller footprint and faster user interface. Oscillator waves and oscillators are mixed with cross faders and there is only a single ADSR shared for the filter and VCA. It sits somewhere in the middle of the Odyssey and Axxe.

The neat part of the Solus is that like a 2600, the whole synth is a case for itself. The lid is included and has clearly served its purpose well over the years. Finally, like the odyssey, there is CV, gate and trig I/O on 1/8th" jacks for interfacing with other analog gear (even works with Eurorack!)

This is a beautiful vintage analog synthesizer with that classic bright sound that ARP is so well known for! It was recently checked out by our technician and is in fantastic condition."

great MMT digital sounds & you can really
make some nice vintage spacey leads & FX!!
This is EXCELLENT for Ambient music for sure!!
A good alternative to the regular Korg microKORG,

Delta CEP A Snapshot Morphing & Drum Module Demos

Published on Feb 11, 2019 Jörg Schaaf

"The Delta CEP A morph function is based on snapshots. A snapshot is a subprogram within a soundprogram. Snapshots can hold variations of the sound or complete different sounds. The snapshots can then morph from one step to the next. In this example the keystep sequences the Delta CEP A. The Delta CEP A sound morphs through eight different snapshots.

Delta CEP A as a drum module

Published on Feb 11, 2019 Jörg Schaaf

"Why not using the Delta CEP A as a drum module? I saved snapshots of different drumsounds. Afterwards I connected a Doepfer A-155 sequencer. The sequencer line triggers the envelope, one control voltage line selects the snapshots and one line controls the pitch. I fed the drum groove into the FXs of my mixing desk from time to time to add more variations. But I really like the opportunity to use the Delta as a drum module."

Korg minilogue & Elastic FX jam

Published on Feb 11, 2019 Oliver Greschke

Oliver Greschke is the developer of Elaxtic FX.

"I had a lot of fun playing my new Korg minilogue with some basic bread & butter effects by Elastic FX (mostly Chorus, Delay & Reverb).

EFX is a 4 channel multi-effects processor that’s easy and intuitive to play, but also offers complex options to shape your sound and route the audio effects stream."

Teenage Engineering OP-Z Videolab Testdrive

Published on Feb 11, 2019 Perplex On

"This is a super simple testdrive for my first selfmade OP-Z Videolab project that allows to create your own visuals in Unity sequenced and modulated by the OP-Z. The music is made completely with inbuilt sounds. The Videolab scene is running on an old iPhone 5S inside the OP-Z app and is projected in realtime onto the OP-Z with a pocket projector. The kick track deforms the polygonal shape whereas the snare track modulates the glitch shifting fx. Enjoy!"

Cut Off

Published on Feb 10, 2019 zack dagoba

"How to patch a filter so that it has extra resonance. In this case its a vintage Buchla 100 series Model 191 which has zero resonance in normal use. But like so much with the 100 series, a simple patch-around solution is available. Just send the filter output back in on itself with a mixer, blending the input signal and filter output to get resonance galore. The mixer is used BEFORE the input to the filter, in other words, the mixer used to combine the dry signal with the filtered signal and send it back in on itself. Look at the diagram in the video. See https://myblogitsfullofstars.blogspot... for more"

Behringer CRAVE Does Acid!

Published on Feb 11, 2019 mootbooxle

"When I was playing with the Crave the other day, I heard some tones that made me think, 'I wonder how 303-eqsue I can make it sound?' Just add distortion (this is an EHX Big Muff w/Tone Wicker) and it’s ACID TIME. You have to imagine the crazy patterns because that ain’t really my genre. But it’s fun, and I just put out a vinyl record of it!

The sound is then going through the Strymon El Capistan delay for some 'space', then straight into the Roland Go:Mixer Pro which is connected to iPhone X which shot this video."

Laurie Anderson - Optigan / Panoptigon 2010 One-Off Disc Demo

Published on Feb 11, 2019 optigandotcom

"This is a historical oddity that was never intended for public consumption, but in honor of Laurie Anderson's Grammy Award for LANDFALL (which prominently features Robert Becker's heavily modified "Optigan Pro"), we thought it'd be fun to share this and get in a quick Panoptigon demo at the same time ( When we lent Laurie the Optigan, we thought it'd be fun to put some of her own sounds on a one-off disc for her to mess around with. We pulled drums & musical loops for the chord buttons, and short spoken phrases for the keyboard. This demo is just some spontaneous noodling, which was recorded in multiple MIDI passes and then dumped live to audio. The video was shot during the actual audio recording, so you can see the disc speed up, slow down, and go into reverse in time with the audio. Maybe not Grammy material (OK, decidedly not!), but a geeky curiosity nonetheless! Congrats, Laurie & Kronos!"

"If you own a CS80 and you don't have this document you are incomplete."

Description for the Manual:

"Here is a rarity.. The original manual for the iconic Yamaha CS80 Polyphonic synthesizer dated February 1977. This would have been the manual shipped with the very first units.

I got this with my CS80 in 2001 and recently came across it in a pile of documents I will be listing for sale over the next week. I've seen the 1980 manual online but this is the only one of these I've seen in 20 years of obsessing over these instruments. It's in ok shape, its a 42 year old document and shows some age as you can see in the photos. I have kept it flat, wrapped in a mylar magazine bag to preserve it as best i can. It's 20 pages cover to cover, it has some stains, a rip and isn't perfect but is what it is."

Description for the Brochure:

"Although not as obscure the 1977 owners manual, this document is rarely seen, particularly in this condition. I've seen lesser quality copies of this fetch document my asking price on ebay over the years. Dates to June 1977 (7726)

I got this with my CS80 in 2001 and recently came across it in a pile of documents I will be listing for sale over the next week. It's in ok shape, its a 42 year old document and shows some age as you can see in the photos. I have kept it flat, wrapped in a mylar magazine bag to preserve it as best i can. It's 8 pages cover to cover. 1 tear at the bottom through all pages. 3 ring binder holes. Full colour, suitable for framing."

Landscape Stereo Field

via this auction

"STEREO FIELD is one instrument with three uses. It is simultaneously a stereo/quad modular touch plate feedback atonal synthesizer, a stereo/quad audio processor and a pressure sensitive chaotic CV "controller". All three uses are available separately as well as simultaneously and in conversation with each other. The Stereo Field allows its user to manipulate and patch two analog stereo preamp circuits via touch plates. By utilizing skin conductivity as new paths for current to follow you are creating "new circuits" and new sounds in relation to where your fingers are patching. The individual touch plates are directly connected to nearly every connection point of every component in its circuitry (located directly under each corresponding touch plate). When touched with multiple fingers it will create atonal analog feedback with either of the two mirrored circuits represented by interlocking touch-plate circles."

Befaco Kickall - a monsterous kick drum, drone machine, Eurorack synth voice and more!

Published on Feb 11, 2019 DivKidVideo

"*TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW* I've had the pleasure of testing the Kickall module from Befaco for a little while now ( you may remember the prototype video I made - [see this post] ) and as usual with Befaco it's been a total pleasure to test and try out. Above anything Kickall (as intended) is a mega kick drum with a wide range, more unique sound than a drum machine clone and a good range of CV controlled parameters. It's also a great synth voice and with some modulation tricks as I show in the video a wider range of more harsh digital tones, claps, snares and FM voices.
