DeepMind 12 does 80's Italo Disco!

Published on Feb 22, 2019 Hermisphere

"A practical application of the DeepMind 12 in a multitrack situation.

All sounds, except the drums, come from the DeepMind 12.
All the patches are original and will be available soon.

People often talk about a "desert-island synth". Well, I got myself into a desert-island synth situation by spending the winter months in sunny Mexico, far away from my studio. Out of all my synths I had to choose only one to take with me, and I ended up picking the DeepMind for various reasons - It's reasonably portable, very flexible and yes, deep. Also, with the nice keybed, full-size keys and aftertouch, it doubles as a pretty good midi controller.

Music and video produced by Hermigervill."

Roland SH-101 Synth (Pristine Cond.) w/Controller, Cord, Strap, Orig. Pkg. / Box SN 320769

via this auction

"We discovered this Roland SH-101 Synthesizer in the attic of a relative who passed away. It's in the original box with the original packaging. Included is the SH-101 Synthesizer, handle/controller, strap, manual, plug adapters, and the original batteries (no power supply). Play tested for functionality - turns on and makes sounds.
This collectible Roland synthesizer is in nearly new condition. It has one small mark next to the Roland logo as indicated in the photo. The relative couldn't play keyboard so we're convinced he bought it on a lark and got bored with it in short order.

I hooked it up, turned it on with new batteries and it makes sounds. I'm a guitarist so I'm not familiar with the controls."

Roland Paraphonic 505 Synthesizer

via this auction

"This is a ONE OWNER instrument. I bought this new in 1979, and it has never been taken out of the home (non smoking home) except when I moved from So Cal to the PNW. Other than being dusty when I brought it out of the closet, I did give it a good wipe down, and it is in fantastic condition. In picture #4, the "release" slider is slightly bent, not broken, and it, as with all sliders and knobs, work great. I DID spray contact cleaner in all sliders, plugged it in, and all works just fine. I will say that when testing all the keys, SOMETIMES I would hear a "scratchy" sound, then when key was depressed again, no scratchiness, so I would think that after 40 years, this was a contact point getting the "cobwebs" out. :)"

1975 Farfisa Syntorchestra Demo

Published on Feb 22, 2019 Paul Curreri

"A basic function demo of the 1975 Syntorchestra. For the three years I’ve owned it, this machine has been excellent. But recently, the E’s have stopped working on the poly section. Still sounds absolutely electric and singular and wild. Recorded into Cubase with a small amount of delay (DL4) and reverb (miniverb ii). No EQ, compression, or limiting."

VERMONA 14 - Analog Synthesizer Sounds 【SYNTH DEMO】

Published on Feb 22, 2019 synth4ever

"With circuits adapted from the PERfourMER MKII and Mono Lancet ’15, the '14 was built with stability and musicality in mind, with special attention given to approachability and stellar sound quality.

The '14 Analog synthesizer is a classic subtractive synth: a beefy lowpass filter shapes the sound of the two powerful analog oscillators. Like Vermona's other analog synth options, the sound is markedly warm and round, demanding attention and adapting smoothly to a variety of genres.

It has 2 VCOs (sine, saw, rectangle), mixer, LPF filter (12, 18 and 24 db), 2 envelopes (ADSR), LFO (saw up, saw down, square, triangle, sine, S&H), VCO Modulation,, arpeggiator, MIDI and various other features.

In this demo I showcase some sounds from the Vermona 14 including noise type patches, sample & hold, arpeggiator, LFO tweaking and more. The Vermona 14 is a very high quality subtractive analog monosynth with great sounds and capabilities."

『これがシンセサイザーだ』 情報部

"NHK 600こちら情報部 特集『これがシンセサイザーだ』 より。

『夢のジャムセッション』の前フリとして神尾明朗氏が、YAMAHA CS-10をメインに、シンセサイザー操作の概略を説明しています。この放送があった70年代後半、音色プログラム機能を持っているシンセサイザーというものは一般的でなかったので、シンセサイザーの音作りを勉強するために、市販されている参考書や楽器メーカーの販促物に掲載されているツマミのセットチャートを見ながら、ツマミの位置を合わせては波の音を作り、風の音を作り、蒸気機関車の音を作り...といった手順を踏むのが定番でした。"


"NHK 600 Here Information Section Special from "This is a synthesizer" from.

Mr. Akiro Kamio as a prefix of "Dream Jam Session" explains the outline of synthesizer operation mainly with YAMAHA CS-10. In the late 1970s when this broadcast was in the late 70's, synthesizers with tone color programming function were not common, so in order to study the sound making of synthesizers, to the reference books on the market or promotional materials of musical instrument manufacturers While looking at the set chart of the knob that is being posted it was a standard to follow the steps of making the sound of the waves, making the sound of the wind, making the sound of the steam locomotive ... matching the position of the knob."

Roland Alpha Juno 2 | The best Roland Synth Ever for Espen Kraft

Published on Feb 22, 2019 Espen Kraft

"In 1985 Roland released the last of their analog synths, the Alpha Juno 1 and 2.
Excellent synths that failed to impress the world at the time where everyone wanted digital synths and samplers.
The 5 octave Alpha Juno 2 with velocity and after touch is still my fav master keyboard and I love it dearly.

Sound examples start at 16:57

The lush pads/strings, warm basses perfect for synth-pop, solo leads smooth as butter and a very slow LFO all contributes to my addiction to this synth."

Rossum Electro-Music Trident *FIRST PATCH*

Published on Feb 22, 2019 DivKidVideo

"This was a real highlight of the NAMM 2019 footage (I wasn't there personally) and just the thought of a triple oscillator from Dave Rossum (previously of E-Mu, now Rossum Electro-Music) is enough to be excited about. Trident brings in "zing" modulation which is ring modulation with in sync (that's the key for musical / harmonious tones and less so clangorous ones) oscillators, symmetry and phase modulation options and plenty of control and CV inputs to really animate things. So this was the first patch I made when it when into the case and I just wanted to share that right away to show off some of the raw tones and some patches ideas with dual layer LPG control and a little pepper of FX in the background. Full demo coming around the release."

North Coast Synthesis-Dual VC Octave Switch MSK 008/Unboxing and first impressions

Published on Feb 22, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Today the next module that came from Canada straight from the North Coast Synthesis is the Dual VC Octave Switch MSK 008.

This module is a multifunction voltage processor. The module has two channels, the integer number of volts from -2 to +2; a three-position toggle switch that shifts the quantizer boundaries up or down by a volt; and a precision adder (with optional subtraction function).possibilities really open up. An LFO into the quantified input.Combining the two channels, with or without other utility modules, allows more complex melody-shifting effects. And it does not have to be just for oscillator pitch control. The "mid-side" encoder or decoder. With other patching it can be a flip-flop or a wavefolder.This module is available in a DIY or assembled version.It is also worth taking a look at the reading section because founder Matthew Skala publishes interesting articles in series on modular and the his environment !!!"
