The Quickening- An Ode to Art Bell featuring the Kurzweil K2500XS written in 1996

Published on Jul 6, 2019 Sean Christopher Evoking Emotion with Synthesizers

"I've been too busy on other project unfortunately to get a new track up in the past several weeks, so I thought that I would share with you a track I wrote back in 1996 on the Kurzweil K2500XS, a mid-90's digital synth/sampler extraordinaire. I loved my Kurzweil's back in the 90's having owned a K2000, a K2500XS, and later 2 K2600XS's.

The Quickening- An Ode To Art Bell is a piece I wrote that features samples from the old Coast To Coast AM Radio Art Bell show from the "Kingdom of Nye". Back in those days I worked a "real" job at the US Postal Service on the graveyard shift. The Art Bell show kept me entertained for 3 or 4 hours every night with talk on just about every paranormal subject out there. I wrote and composed the music and the lyrics. The singer for a band i was in at the time provided the vocals. Her name is Amy....sorry, I cannot recall her last name right now."

Sequential Circuits Prophet VS SN 0391 Serviced with Upgrades

via this auction

Pics of the inside below.

"Important upgrades are as follows.

The display was upgraded to OLED.

All push buttons were replaced within the past year.

The original aftertouch system was upgraded to utilize the common Fatar pressure sensor installed underneath the actual keys in place of the felt so when you depress the key it engages the aftertouch very easily. The entire keybed was disassembled and cleaned during the process.

The failure prone CEM 5530 chips have been replaced with very reliable clones from Straylight engineering."

op-z jam (Optigan & Massive samples)

Published on Jul 6, 2019 thebrackett

"Here's another jam using some Optigan and N.I. Massive Samples for lead and bass, and some rhythm stuff using a chopped up version of the default speech synthesis track that loads when you initialize a rhythm sampling track.

Also, pardon the wobbly table, I'll cram a matchbook under it next time so it don't shake so much.

Thanks for watching!"

Synton VCF 3017 Synthesizer Filter Module

via this auction

"Up for sale is a very rare Synton Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF) module, model 3017, made in Holland. This was intended to fit into their large modular synthesizer systems from that era.

I purchased this synthesizer filter module in the mid 1980s from an authorized Synton dealer, and never got around to using it. It's UNTESTED but it's as new as when I bought it. It's in excellent condition although there is one very small paint imperfection from the factory on the front panel, between the input jack and the band pass output jack. It requires a +/- 15 volt DC power supply (which I've never had access to, and that's why I never powered it up).

It has one audio input, a voltage control input, a Band Pass output (BP), and an output for Low Pass / N / High Pass. The controls are one knob for Input Attenuation, one for Frequency, one for Resonance, and a knob to change between Low Pass, Notch, and High Pass filtering. And there's a red LED to indicate Overload.

This synth module uses standard banana jacks, so it can connect to other devices using the same type of jack, or can be used with third-party adapter cables or modules (verify with your technician).

Dimensions (approx):

128 mm tall (5 1/6th inches)
80 mm wide (3 3/16th inches)
50 mm deep (2 1/8th inches) (total including knobs)
34 mm deep (1 3/8th inches) (from panel to farthest PCB component)

The power wires extend approximately 18" from the printed circuit board. See photos to view power connector.

Could this be the retro module you're looking for to fit into your system? Maybe so!

It requires +/- 15 volts DC, so please verify that this will work with your system before bidding. (Euro-rack systems run on +/- 12 volts DC, so if you want to use this with a Euro-rack system, you'll need a separate power supply.)"

Korg VC10 Vintage Analog Vocoder

via this auction

"Korg VC-10 analog vocoder. It works perfectly and sounds amazing. Cosmetically there's some pitting and oxidization on the face, remnants of a sticker on the back, and general bumps and scrapes typical of an old synth. The gooseneck mic is the same make and model as the original, but is newer."

ROLAND Tr909 DrumMachine Techno Clap in Eventide H910 Harmonizer

Published on Jul 6, 2019 Sound Provider

"For this quick exemple I did a quick Techno loops and put a clap from a Roland Tr-909 Drum machine through an Eurorack Tiptop Audio z-dsp with halls of Valhalla reverb card them I put it through my Wonderful Eventide H910 Harmonizer.
The Eventide H910 Harmonizer was developed by Eventide in 1974. The H910 was the world’s first commercially available digital audio effects device. It combined ‘de-glitched’ pitch change with delay and feedback.
I record everything with Roland Go:mixer pro and the lever was little too hot, so sorry for the little distortion."
