Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"This P600 was acting up and had a recent trip to Wine Country Sequential last year to fix some underlying bugginess. In the time I've had it it has seen an almost entire replacement of the digital control ICs for the panel controls, as well as the replacement of all the original plastic potentiometers with nice metal, panel mounted, buttery smooth metal pots, and a new production membrane pad. It also has a new battery, brand new EPROM, and all original factory presets loaded in. While it is completely up and running (and sounding amazing!) one of the filters doesn't quite track..."

Orca on the Norns, Microfreak , Eurorack - DPO etc.

Published on May 28, 2019 junklight

"Installed Orca on my Norns today! lovely - here it is outputting midi and playing a sample. I'm pretty sure you can do what I was doing with the keyboard using the grid as well but that's for another day

Been listening to early Chris Carter today so was exploring sequences and rhythms rather than the keyboard driven stuff I often make....."

Turning One LFO Into Six Using Planar's Scan Mode

Published on May 28, 2019 Intellijel

"With nothing connected to the inputs, Planar's ABCD outputs each send 10v when the joystick pans to that quadrant. This gives you a total of 6 CV control outputs. By recording a gesture and playing it back using an LFO in Scan Mode, you can control the rate of modulation to all 6 outputs using that single LFO. It's almost like turning one LFO into 6!"

Polyend Perc Midi/CV Controlled Percussion Striker

Published on May 28, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"The Polyend Perc takes either a midi or CV input and then strikes the drum or whatever you place it above. We had fun seeing how fast of a snare roll we could get the Perc to do. For this video we sequenced the Perc with Polyend's Seq and added in a kick drum with Korg's Volca Kick. We hit a snare drum, cymbal and even one of the pads on a Nord Drum 3P (we know we could of used midi, but this was way more fun!)

Polyend Perc available here:"

MOOG Modular Synthesizer 2 Evolving Patch

Published on Feb 1, 2019 OFR

via Brian Kehew:

"I like to make non-traditional Moog system patches. People have this illusion that a Moog modular is a tonal keyboard-oriented instrument, but that's obviously a limitation of thinking. Here are some live videos of evolving patches to demonstrate the concept.

All the audio modules are Moog: 1960s, 70s, and 2015. The top cabinet has some other CV modules from DotCom, SSL, and STG."

Side note: You can find all three parts here. I had parts 1 and 3 posted as they went up, but missed part 2. I added all three to the first post.

Imaginary Journey

Published on May 27, 2019 Jörg Schaaf

Jörg Schaaf of Radikal Technologies and previously Quasimidi.

"The first three tracks of my upcoming album "Imaginary Journey. I am very excited that the brilliant studio musician and film composer Tobias Becker joined me for the second track and played a wonderful oboe improvisation. His work adds a very special element to the electronically produced ambient tracks. I highly recommend to check out his own work as well.
track listing:
1.) departure
2.) behavior in the dark
3.) river crossing
Release date of the album 01.07.2019.
I am meanwhile using my mobile phone for most of my videos. In this case I just walked around and produced some footage here and there. Don't expect something very special.

Gotharman Fuzion Synth Sample FX Workstation

via this auction

"There are only about 15 of these in the world. It was too expensive to make so they were discontinued (though the maker Flemming is very friendly and will always help you if you need it.) The Fuzion is coded in assembler and is astonishingly fast. 1.5GB of internal flash ROM, so all your samples / recordings / songs / patterns etc are immediately available on boot (which is quick too). An amazing sequencer (independent lengths for each track in a pattern, making polyrhythms very easy), real sampling, loading of samples from USB, 16 tracks, MIDI or audio tracks, multi-engine very unique synthesiser engines, extremely odd granular effects and the most unusual reverb I've ever heard. Can be used as an FX unit. Audio in / out, dual MIDI inputs and outputs. The full spec is here [also see here to compare with current products]. Perfect for studio or live work (no more laptop!)"

Alesis A6 Andromeda Keyboard Synthesizer

via this auction

"The voices are all tuned (after tuning procedure) as the picture shows. The sounds produced by this 16 voice polyphonic synthesizer are incredible and some are otherworldly. Very warm pads, fat to very fat basses, searing leads, and my goodness, some extreme sounds. The range of tonal possibilities is vast. If you are into programming, this is very deep. Tough to describe that part. I'd say the user interface is very nerdy, in a very complimentary way. This is a very powerful machine. It is 100% analog but has excellent digital effects and an arpeggiator as well. It is truly one of the last and greatest analog synthesizers ever made."

KlirrFactory WonkySEQ - Organic Drum Sequencer for VCV Rack (Overview)

Published on May 28, 2019 TheKlirrfaktor

"WonkySEQ is a 16 step, 5 track drum sequencer for VCV Rack which let’s you set probabilities for every sequenced step. Every successful sequenced step allows you to set the probability between 2 outputs – so you can use 2 different sounds (i.e. 2 kicks changing randomly). You can choke tracks, change the probability for all sequenced steps (for all tracks), fix steps - so they will be played even if the overall probability is set to 0.
All this combined with the Wonky Clock section let’s you make very organic and unique grooves with a few clicks.

WonkySEQ is available @"

There's the existing Eurorack Oscitron (demo video below) and Oscidrum (alt. firmware) but the new Atmegatron, Atmultitron and new expanders are all coming together for future release. Blending 8 bit "dirty lo fi" filters and polyphonic analogue filter expanders in Eurorack there's a potentially large system of Soulsby goods on the way!"
