GRP A4 - Italian analog mega mono semimodular

via this auction

"This was built to order by GRP in 2013. They make a limited somewhat annual run with about a 6-9 month wait.

3 VCO analog mono beast of a semi modular. Dual filters, Rich ladder VCF, cool Berlin School step sequencer with all the bells and whistles, like step repeat, back and forth, odds and evens for counter point type sequences."

Vintage VERMONA 2 VCO Synthesizer

via this auction

"Vermona synthesizer produced in the GDR, was popular in the Soviet Union in the 80s. This fully analog synthesizer, with seeming simplicity, allows you to include several registers at the same time, which allows you to make the timbre richer and inaccessible to simple monophonic synthesizers with 2 voz, this is possible due to the nonstandard scheme of the wco generators + frequency frequency dividers, the same sawtooth wave Because of the generators, it consists of square waves and has a stepped form, it also has a very reliable system, it also has a moog filter, 1 envelope on the VCF and VCA, crossed on the VCF and VCA, LFO only with sinus wave also includes a delay function lfo. The sound is very clear, unusual, perfectly punches any mix, bass fat. The state of the synthesizer is perfect, all the nodes are in good condition."

I Wonder (Improv Pro2 and RC505)

Published on Mar 9, 2019 jenamu6

"Live looping on DSI Pro2 and RC505"

Control: Ben Kudler // PFH #13 - Live at Control, Brooklyn NY

"Pennies from Heaven, a collaboration between Control and Bánh Mì Verlag, is a series focused on contemporary experimental culture with an emphasis on the liminal and the underrepresented.

Sound artist and musician Ben Kudler’s (b. 1967) story began in the London Nightclub scene. This early period was labeled by critics and detractors as evocative of cryogenic freezing and ruptured stasis. Notable during this period is Kudler volunteering to be placed into cryotasis.

This evening, the artist will present a new work: Piece For Channa Horwitz (Sonakinatography I Movement #III) In Four Parts.

Kudler has released music on Unifactor, Salon and Bahn Mi Verlag, to name a few.

Please note that seating is limited. After 7pm, reserved tickets may be distributed to standbys. Performance will promptly start at 7:15; once the performance begins no entry will be permitted. Do not be late. Suggested donation is on a sliding scale from $7 - $15."


Matt Morton on Moog IIIc Modular Synth and the Apollo 11 Soundtrack

Published on Jun 3, 2018 Matt Morton Music


1. Moog IIIc techno sketch
Stumbled on this little sketch while I was taking a break from scoring (finishing up 'Apollo 11' which will premiere on opening night of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on January 24, and then hit theaters and TV in the spring/summer of 2019) and I was playing around with my Q963 trigger busses. Seems like the really fun ideas usually come when you're not looking for them too hard.

Gear used: Moog Synthesizer IIIc reissue, Soundgas modified Binson Echorec 2 (with varispeed and wet-only out), Q960 sequencers, trigger bus, signal selector, and foot control for filter cutoff, BAE 1073MPF mic preamps, Radial JDI direct boxes and ReAmp feeding the Binson (via RME Fireface 800)
2. Moog IIIc and valve varispeed Binson Echorec 2 T7E
This is me improvising on my 2017 Moog Synthesizer IIIc reissue, fed into a Soundgas Ltd. valve Binson Echorec 2 T7E (with varispeed and wet-only mods). The kick is a mixture of two sources: a kick I synthesized on the Moog using sine and triangle waves, and a kick I recorded from my 1967 Ace Tone Rhythm Ace. The eighth note bass line is coming from my Minimoog Model D reissue. For the main part (that you see me doing live), the dry signal is panned hard right, and the Binson's wet-only output (thanks Soundgas!) is panned hard left. I captured them with BAE 1073 MPF preamps and Radial JDI Jensen-equipped DIs. Also, the Moog-style sequencers (along with most of the other non-Moog modules I'm using) are by
3. Matt Morton on Moog IIIc Modular Synth
This is a quick sketch on my 2017 Moog IIIc Modular Synthesizer Reissue (serial number 19 of 25 made). I'm also using modules by (including two Q960 sequencers) and STG Soundlabs (Post-Lawsuit Filter on the non-sequenced bass voice).

And from the Apollo 11 soundtrack:

The soundtrack is currently available on Amazon.

via Synthtopia

"The highly-acclaimed film (currently rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes) features a score by composer Matt Morton, who chose to score it using an expanded palette of orchestra + electronics – but only using instruments that would have been available in 1969.

Morton says that every instrument and effect used in the score existed at the time of the mission in 1969 including the Moog modular Synthesizer IIIc, the Binson Echorec 2 tube echo, the Mellotron sample playback keyboard and the instruments of the orchestra."

(Matrixbrute): Matrix Arpeggiator + Lead Line

Published on Mar 9, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Matrixbrute as both accomp and lead on the same patch. VCO 3 is assigned to the arpeggiation sequence, which I wrote in 13/16 time. VCO's 1&2 are assigned to the upper (i.e lead) voice. Pitch wheel is set to an octave; you'll notice it only alters the lead part.

This improv is intentionally a small nod to Vai/Zappa - hence the odd use of the pitch wheel i.e as of how Vai commonly uses the whammy bar/whammy pedal on the guitar.

FX added = TC 2290 rack for delay, and PCM 96 rack for reverb. The distant sound/effect at the end is the fading in of the MxB's onboard reverb (to full wet).

All best


via this auction

"The ARP AXXE is the younger sibling to the better known Odyssey, to which it features a very similar layout. The main difference being that it only has one VCO so there are no duophonic capabilities or ring modulator. That doesn't take away from the fact that its still a really great sounding monosynth with that beloved ARP bite!

This synth is in great shape for its age with no cosmetic wear out of the ordinary for a 70s synthesizer!"

Studio Electronics CODE 8 Voice - Blue

via this auction

"Loaded with 8 x CS80 and 8 x Oberheim and 8 x Moog filters (only one ARP filter)

Upgraded with distortion switch and discrete outs, and a new “clean” faceplate

Recently serviced

This synth sounds “vintage” and much better than the Moog One (I tested them together).

The new software app also makes it easy to program and name patches from your computer.

I’m only selling it because I don’t want a rack synth anymore and ordered a River."

Via the listing: "A hard to find cover for the andromeda, I bought it from Alexis before they went under and I paid more than the starting price.

Use it to replace a damaged or scratched face or what I was going to do is put some led Christmas lights in the holes and display it on the wall or make a cool coffee table out of it.

It’s not brand new there are a couple spots where the laminate is bent on the corner you can see in the pictures everything is there."

Korg Mono/Poly w/ MIDI

via this auction

"This fabulous Korg Mono/Poly has had MIDI In & Out ports professionally fitted!

The Mono/Poly is famous for its excellent arpeggiator, which has the ability to cycle through each of its 4 VCOs, creating weaving and evolving rhythms. With MIDI installed into this Mono/Poly, you can easily sync the arpeggiator to tempo, opening all sorts of possibilities. 😻

This Mono/Poly also has had an IEC (standard kettle cord) power supply fitted. (Most of the Mo/Pos you can get on ebay are spec'd for Japanese Voltage and require a step-down transformer to use in Australia and elsewhere)"

Elektron Digitakt: Monster Mono-synth?!

Published on Mar 9, 2019 Oscillator Sink

"The Elektron Digitakt is a wonderful sampler, sequencer, groovebox... thing! But what if I told you that it's also a monster mono-synth? The rantings of a mad-man? Well maybe! But when you consider that each of its eight sampler tracks can be set up to act as a highly configurable oscillator by looping short, single-cycle wave-forms, the prospect of an 8 oscillator mono-synth starts to sound somewhat appealing!

In this video I take a look at setting up the Digitakt to act like a mono-synth and walk through building an 8-oscillator mono-synth patch from scratch."

Playing Behringer MODEL D From GUITAR - Audio-to-Synth / Sonicsmith CONVERTER+ A1 / Guitarsynth

Published on Mar 9, 2019 VolcaRock

"Quick demo of my Behringer Model D playing from Guitar!
Sonicsmith Coverter+ converts the audiosignal from my guitar to pitch and gate for my Model D. The tracking is pretty fast. Model D behaves like my guitar :-)
The final sound is 100% Behringer Model D. On one patch I fed the Audio Controlled Oscillator ACO of the Converter+ into the Model D mixer as additional Sound source. And I used the LFO of the A1 Module for the Model Ds filter.

In the past I used a Midi-based guitarsynthesizer from Roland with my Godin LGX.-SA with build-in Piezo pickups for MIDI tracking. But the Sonicsmith Converter+ tracks faster. Of course you have to play very accurate (not like me) to get results without glitch.
No MIDI has been used for these recordings!
