"This unit has module 150, two 110 modules, the 140 and the 132. Sad to let this guy go. It’s of Japanese origin so it takes 100v which works in a 110 plug just fine, but I will include a up-converter to 110."

Analogue Vocoder Tutorial | Seekers Voice Spectra

Published on Mar 15, 2019 Alex Ball

"A quick spin through the basic principals of an analogue vocoder using a Seekers Voice Spectra.

Demonstrates some modulator / carrier combinations and also some robot voice effects.

We finish off with a short bit of music utilising the vocoder in context.

I'm planning on doing some more advanced and experimental things with it in the future as there's a lot of scope to try things with it.

As always, thanks for watching."

"Here is a quick video of me programming a sequence on the Firelight, using the built-in sequencing programme, called "PAGE R"

First I created 4 sounds by drawing harmonic waveforms in "PAGE 4". This was only possible because I got a USB mouse converter for the CMI from Joe Britt (as my Fairlight light-pen isn't working at the moment)

#korgmonotron #korgmonotrondemo KORG Monotron - Benjamin LAZZARUS

Published on Mar 15, 2019 Benjamin LAZZARUS

"This track is only made with sounds coming from the KORG Monotron
Video: 'Chronos' - Ron Fricke"

Yes, the drums as well. via Benjamin LAZZARUS in the comments for the video:

"Yes the drum too, with a little trick for the 'noise' I used the exit breath (which is strong enough on the monotron) to accentuate the highlights, and I cut the same breath of exit to the eighth to get a charley. The clap with the very fast lfo that makes a kind of "fllleu", and the kick with the filter reso pushed to the bottom. But otherwise yes I love more and more use very basic machines see very cheap!"

Wersi Wersimatic CX2 1985

via this auction

"For sale is the extremely rare Wersi Wersimatic CX2. The CX2 is a combination of a digital drumcomputer and preset synthesizer/organ. The drumcomputer section consists of 54 preset rhytms, but it is also possible to compose your own rhytms by using its composer (static/real time composing) and the 14 different drum sounds available. It also has accent.

The accompaniment section has a bass (guitar, synth, tuba), chord (e-piano, guitar, wah guitar, strings, organ), and arpeggio section (brass, clarinet, banjo, bells, strings, single notes) which can be played solo or combined. When the drumsection plays the accompaniment section can be triggered by pressing keys. It automatically follows the rhythms.
However, you can also make your own BASS solo, chords, and arpeggio patterns !!

This is a great instrument for modding. SSM2044 chips are installed on two of the cards, and a filter/resonance function can be easily added. Other possible modifications my be separate outs and volume pots for drum sounds and accompaniment, clock synq, etc. I prefered to leave it in original condition and let the next owner do this if preferred."

Friday Jam #3 - SKULPT + Phaser, Bass Guitar and Drum Machine

Published on Mar 15, 2019 Modal Electronics

"Friday Jam #3 - 2 minutes of what it sounds like to pair SKULPT with a phaser, a drum machine and a bass guitar. A moody little jam from the Modal studio."


Published on Mar 14, 2019 Michael Rucci


"This device manipulates clock pulses in three ways. “Humanize” sets the amount of delay randomly applied to clock pulses. “Improbability” increases the likely hood that a clock pulse will be held back from being passed through. Finally, “swing” will delay every other pulse to change the feel. It works with either external 5V clock sources or can generate its own clock.

All three effects can be used simultaneously and mixed for desired result. This works well paired with a sequencer or drum machine to smooth out robotic perfection, add a groove feel, or create some chaos.

There is a speed control for the internal clock generator which is overridden when an external clock source is connected. In addition to a power indicator, a 2nd LED displays the original pulses and a 3rd LED shows the manipulated pulses.

Clock in and out are 1/8″ jacks. It is built in an aluminum enclosure and powered by an included internal 9V battery or any 9V Center-Negative DC adapter. Connecting a power supply will automatically disconnect and reserve the battery. This was designed and hand-built in Oakland, California.

Shipping to the US is a flat $10, everywhere else is $22 for the first item and $8 for each additional item.

Ships next day."

VC Octave Switch MSK008-North Coast Synthesis in techno

Published on Mar 15, 2019 Dziam Bass

"Hi Guys!
Recently, I have two great modules from North Coast Synthesis, one is the Coiler Multimode Filter MSK 009 and the other is the VC Octave Switch MSK008 I have just made a small movie using both in Techno.
I have seen many times how Suzanne Ciani uses octave switch that's what she said about it at the RBMA lecture in Montreal and I think that these are very much needed modules for performance. As the oscillator I used in this movie VCO GR11 from ReBach which gives a really nice analog sound based on SAW Core.
Of course, some fun in the LP and quite high resonance"
