Technosaurus Microcon II

via this auction

"Technosaurus Microcon II Synthesizer! Reminiscent of an SH-101 or TB303. Compact table-top analog mono synth with a Sub-oscillator. Excellent condition, fully functional. Includes power supply."

MOOG Memorymoog Plus SN 3322

via this auction

"This synth was serviced in about 2015 and has less than 5 hours of operation since then. It is in excellent working condition and has only a few minor signs of cosmetic wear including a mark on one of the keys and a few scratches/dings that I consider to be minor. I have owned it for over 20 years and I estimate that I have put less than 100 hours of operation on it in that time.

Note that there were two versions of this synth; the Memorymoog and the MemorymoogPlus. This is the "Plus" model which added a basic MIDI implementation and a sequencer. The Memorymoog Plus is like having six Minimoogs in one. This is a truly incredible and rare instrument with a massive sound."

Granular Module (1.03) // Empress FX Zoia Tutorial

Published on Jun 22, 2019 Ron Cavagnaro

"This tutorial shows how the new granular module works in the latest 1.03 firmware for the Empress FX Zoia. We are using the system 1m promars plugout and deluge to sequence the synth using conditional notes. Also there is kp3+ delay and H9 Space effects running through the system 1m.

Technics sx-WSA1R demo - that other acoustic modeling synth from the 90s

Published on Jun 22, 2019 Floyd Steinberg

"Technics sx-WSA1R - that other acoustic modeling synth from the 90s. (Table of contents below!) In this video, I'm playing a short demo with custom sounds and a number of presets. The Technics WSA1 is a 64 voice polyphony, 32 part multitimbral modeling synth from 1995 with some unique features. According to Wikipedia, only 300 of the rack mounted version shown in this video exist. I will have an in - depth look at the synth engine next week. (Subscribe if you want a notification on that).

00:00 short demo showing of the filters. Each voice can have 4 "oscillators" and each "oscillator" can have it's own filter, LFO and envelopes.

1. White Noise! Drums & Percussion from a cheap Ebay module.

"White Noise is a basic ingredient in the creation of electronic musical instruments, especially drums and percussion.

In my Ebay hikes, I found this small and dirt cheap (1.30$) kit that makes healthy white noise and I headed on to make some sounds with it.

Connect the Vactrol in place of resistors R4 or R5, for different effects.
For Modular output level, replace resistor R3 with a value of 8-10K ohms.

רעש לבן הוא מרכיב בסיסי בהרבה מהסאונד של כלי נגינה אלקטרונים, בעיקר בתופים והקשה.
במסגרת שיטוטיי באיביי, מצאתי קיט קטנטן וזול בטירוף שמייצר רעש לבן.

הקיט באיביי:
להגביר את עוצמת הרעש לשימוש במערכת מודולרית: החליפו את נגד R3 בנגד עם ערך של 8-10K.
את הואקטרול חברו במקום אחד הנגדים R4 או R5. הסאונד שונה בכל אחד מהם.

2. 2399: Building a DIY Delay Module
This video shows the process of making a Eurorack Delay module using a PT2399 chip.
Using a self built musical instrument is so much fun!

Strip board Layout for my module
3. A DIY Clock Divider Groove
You can program drums without a sequencer!
A clock divider is a module which creates various divisions of an input clock, the rhythmic base of the system.
I built a module using two cute chips:
The CD4040 divides the clock in multiple of 2: 2, 4 ,8 ,16 ,32 ,64 , 128 etc.
The CD4022 is a simple counter. By deciding how far it counts, we can create more interesting divisions, like 3, 5, 6, 7 etc.
Each division triggers a different drum module, which creates a lovely automatic rhythm.

אפשר לתכנת תופים ללא סיקוונסר!
מחלק שעון (עברית שפה קשה), או Clock Divider הוא סוג של מודוּל שיוצר חלוקות שונות של קלוק, שהוא הבסיס הריתמי של המערכת.
בניתי קלוק דיוויידר (עדיין ללא פאנל) שמורכב משני שבבים חמודים. ה-CD4040 מחלק ל-2,4,8,16,64,256, וכן הלאה ואילו ה-CD4022 פשוט סופר קדימה. ניתן להחליט עד כמה הוא סופר ואז לגרום לו לחזור לתחילת הספירה. כך אנחנו מחלקים את הקלוק למספרים מעניינים יותר...
כל אחת מהחלוקות נשלחת למודול אחר של תוף אלקטרוני וכך נוצר לו מקצב אוטומטי אך מגניב!

5. Adding a Bluetooth input to the Studio Console
This happens all the time!
I meet a musician in my studio and he wants to play me a demo from his phone.
I start looking for a cable to connect to the patchbay, only to realize that it's a new iPhone with no analog audio connector.
A friend who builds studio monitor panels told me he started incorporating a Bluetooth input so I decided to add one to my Control 24 console.
I strolled down to Ebay and found a BT 4.0 module, built a steady power supply and connected it to the patchbay instead of the defunct CD player.
It's compressed audio, but hey, it gets the idea across!
זה קורה כל הזמן.
מוזיקאי שאני פוגש באולפן שלי רוצה להשמיע לי סקיצה מהטלפון שלו ואני מתחיל לחפש כבל כדי לחבר את הנייד שלו למערכת שלי. אם מדובר באייפון 7 ומעלה, אז בכלל אין על מה לדבר כי אין לו בכלל חיבור לכבל אודיו!
איציק אליהו הגאון סיפר שבקופסאות המוניטור החדשות שלו הוא משלב חיבור בלוטוס, איזה רעיון מבריק!
החלטתי שאני מוסיף בלוטוס לקונסולה שלי.
כהרגלי, פסעתי לאיביי ומצאתי שם מודול בלוטוס 4.0 ב-7.5 ש״ח. בניתי מעגל קטן סביבו עם אספקה יציבה של 5V וחיברתי אותו לקונסולה במקום הקומפקט דיסק שכבר מזמן שבק חיים.
זו אמנם דאטה מקומפרסת אבל זה עובד!

"Today we have something really special. This is the brother of the legendary CS-80: the CS-60. This unit has been gone through by our technicians and is fully functional. Take a look at the pics, this one is in museum / collector condition. Our technicians future-proofed, calibrated, and tuned it. Must be one of the finest left on the planet.

Like the CS-80, the CS-60 has the all-important ribbon for wide pitch bends and also has aftertouch that can be routed to filter and/or VCA. If you don't have the big $$$ for a CS-80 but still want that organic, warm, liquid sound that made Vangelis, Air, and Bob Marley famous, here's your best option!"
