Wendy Carlos' Switched On Bach gets a mention at the end of the intro performance after 2:30.

Yes, it is programmable and it does have MIDI. Curious if you can control external gear with the bellows. Hook up MIDI to CV and you are set to control your modular. Imagine that for a live set. Now I'm thinking someone needs to make a dedicated acccordion style controller with built-in sequencer.

New Superlative SB-1/Space Bass - SH-101 Style Rechargable Synthesizer

Coming to SUPERBOOTH19

"Replica 3340 voltage controlled oscillator and classic 4-pole OTA VCF with discrete envelope--
It’s exactly what you think it is.

USB, MIDI, and CV/gate input and output allow for simple musical interfacing with other synthesizers and modular gear.

The SB-1 utilizes a newly-developed full-size keyboard based on tactile rubber dome switches for a fast and responsive feel.

A precision engineered chassis enables a new form factor that is thinner than one inch, yet rugged enough for everyday portability and use.

The SB-1 is the first ever analog synthesizer to incorporate a rechargeable battery, allowing all-day playability between charges.

A new dual-layer sequencer allows for synchronized control of a second instrument via CV/gate or MIDI for a dynamic synth duet."

Barton Musical Circuits BMC56 Utility Buttons Demo

Published on Apr 10, 2019 boogdish

"This is a demo for a new DIY synthesizer module I designed. If you're interested in building this, you can find ordering information, a documentation PDF and a front panel drill guide at"

"Utility Buttons is a performance/controller module that provides gate/trigger outputs based on button presses. Buttons can be set to act as momentary, latching or tap tempo. Each channel has two outputs, one of which can be configured as a Multiple, inversion or trigger of the other output.

This module works on either 12V or 15V systems with no modification. The switches are mounted to the PCB to minimize wiring, but jacks are offboard so it can be easily used in multiple synthesizer formats. Outputs are +5V."

Buchla Music Easel Aux Expander Card

via this auction

"Buchla USA era Easel Aux Expander card. Original packaging. Works perfect. Noise, filter, extra oscillator all sound fantastic through Aux In. By using internal midi buss the oscillator will track pitch perfect.

The Aux Card offers an auxiliary modulation CV source and noise source in low range and a CV/audio oscillator source in high range that can be mixed with the noise source. The noise source also can be filtered. All these parameters are CV controllable. In low range this auxiliary modulation oscillator allows the 208’s Modulation Oscillator to assume audio duties and can be used as the modulation source for a variety of uses. In the keyboard bus setting, it provides a tuning reference for your 208 or can be controlled with internal bus capable 218e keyboards.

They’ve also given you more control with more inputs. They’ve added one more pulse input and give you a choice of switchable destinations. We also added switchable control of timbre pot and switches via the “to card” inputs already on your 208. Did you know you could CV control switch settings? Destinations include the timbre wave shape, the Modulation range, gate source, the VCA LPF mode, the Modulation wave shape and Modulation Variation."

Buzzzy! - The digital polysynth

Published on Apr 10, 2019 Fred's Lab

"The Fred's Lab Buzzzy! Kickstarter campaign is live:

Buzzzy! is an affordable 16 voice / 4 part digital sound module including 4 audio engines (Pulse / FM / Wave and Noise) and built-in quality FXs.

I am relying solely on your support to afford going in production and make out of this prototype, an instrument you can actually get and play!"

"The Buzzzy!

Good instruments don't need to be convoluted.

Instead, they should provide musicians with confidence and astonishment.

Despite it’s simple appearance, Buzzzy! is an advanced 16 voice polysynth capable of a broad and beautiful range of tones. It is fast and immediate, ideal for use onstage and for instant music production.

For the oscillator, choose one of the many variations of Pulse tones, FM timbres, grainy Waves or filtered Noises. Then, adjust the amplifier envelope, pump-up the volume and top with some prime quality effects.

Buzzzy! features 4 powerful oscillator engines, 9 built-in audio effects (with reverbs, delays and filters), a fast arpeggiator and offers 16 save slots to store your multi configurations.

Coming with an extensive MIDI implementation, Buzzzy! will be the perfect match with your hardware or mobile software sequencer.


After having designed instruments for different companies, I felt it was time to introduce my own projects. By pledging today, you are not only making the Buzzzy! possible, you are also supporting the work of an independent creator."

polygogo Oscillator by E-RM Max

"E-RM presents their new synthesis method! polygogo, E-RM’s new stereo oscillator module, is based on the specially developed polygonal synthesis, a kind of graphical complex amplitude shaping method. With the help of the built-in modulation sources, polygonal synthesis in polygogo opens up a wide range of sonic possibilities from clicky pinged sequences to unique dark thunderstorms, bass lines, leads and colored noise. Max of E-RM presents the current prototype of polygogo in the workshop from 7:30pm and answers questions about the module

See you on Thursday 11th of April – 7:30pm at SchneidersLaden! And if you are planning to start a modular journey, join us for the Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm.

Casio CZ-101 synthesizer OLED display retrofit

Published on Apr 10, 2019 2kB of Fun

"The Casio CZ-101 synthesizer has a display that can be dim or missing pixels nowadays. Also the original display is hard to read in the dark because it lacks a backlight.

If you want to replace it with a LED backlight LCD, you run into 2 problems: most LCD's are on smaller boards, and the frame is thicker because there is a backlight under the screen.

Today I replace the LCD in a Casio CZ-101 with a nice new OLED display that exactly matches the original dimensions, works straight out of the package, and has a nice unlimited viewing angle and stellar contrast. You can get these screens in various colours, but I chose yellow because I think it matches the yellow waveform and CZ-101 logo print on the case.

Used Display:
Electronic Assembly W162-XLG in greenish yellow 84x44mm."


Reassembling a Casio CZ 101 after repair

Published on Apr 12, 2019 2kB of Fun

"I bought a 'for parts' Casio CZ-101 and hoped for an easy fix. It wasn't. Luckily someone reacted to my classifieds ad with a request for a new main PCB. Then I swapped the main board and got sound. But things were not that easy. The screen was missing lots of lines and pixels. And 3 buttons and 6 keys weren't working: it turned out a PCB trace was broken, and that 2 wires in the flat cables were broken. And off course I did a thorough cleaning.

But finally I got everyting to work, and I managed to install a nice new perfect fit OLED display in a nice yellow colour matching the print on the case. The result: a near mint working Casio CZ. This awesome sounding synth deserves to be preserved and repaired! Don't bring them to recycling but fix it or share parts to others trying to keep their CZ synts alive!

This video is a quick montage, I left out the full transcription I usually make because of the length of the video. If you want to see all the details, watch on a big screen, I recorded 4K to grab all details."

nonlinearcircuits I can't believe it's not a VCO

Published on Apr 10, 2019 cirtcele

"VCO/VCF based on concepts presented in Electronotes #132."

via nonlinearcircuits

"PCB set = USD20
panel = USD20
assembled = USD180

This module is based on ideas presented in Electronotes #132. It is a VCF with a 'filter exciter' section to allow a wide variety of acoustic, semi-acoustic and not-acoustic-at-all sounds. In a sense it takes the concept of pinging the LPG or ringing a VCF one step (or 2) further. The decaying sound is fed back into the input via a VCA. The VCA can be controlled by a gate or an envelope (or both).
Another interesting point is higher frequency sounds tend to be louder.....which is what happens naturally in the big room."

Patch from scratch with Complex-1 in Reason // 3D textures, arpeggios, modulation and creating depth
