ELKA Synthex 7-20-2019

Published on Jul 20, 2019 SynthMania

"Closing the loop and got the Synthex for my (belated) big 5 'o b-day. The Synthex is *the synth of my teenager years in Italy 1983-1985. I don't have much time tonight so this is just a quick demo done in ten minutes - I will upload a more thorough video tomorrow where I'll be talking about my story with the Synthex and why it's an important synth to me, more than the Jupiters / Moogs / Oberheims / PPGs / DX7 etc. and where we'll also go through the on-board sequencer, the panel features and the various modes as well."

Analog Style Sounds- Waldorf Quantum

Published on Jul 20, 2019 100 Things I Do

"A suggestion from someone on the Waldorf Quantum Facebook group (sorry I forgot your name!) Today we explore the classic oscillator style synthesis on the Quantum. Up front I decided to use no effects, no LFO's just the oscillators and the main Analog filter. The oscillators have a few tricks that make them sound massive, warm and like the big poly synths of old! If you add the Komplex Modulator to the pitch and waveform you get very close to that analog feel in deed!"

Tom Oberheim Get's the Oberheim Trademark & Brand Back

Word is out that Gibson has returned the Oberheim Trademark & brand back to Tom Oberheim in a gesture of good will. How cool is that?!

I thought this image appropriate. :) Tom Oberheim and Dave Smith of course worked together on the Sequential OB-6 and are close friends. One of Sequential's top synth designer's formerly worked on classics like the OB-Xa for the original Oberheim.

“Of the many stories I have heard and decisions I have made since joining Gibson, this situation seemed simple,” says James ‘JC’ Curleigh, president and CEO of Gibson, in a statement. “Let’s do the right thing by putting the Oberheim brand back in the hands of its namesake founder Tom Oberheim.”

According to Gibson, the seeds for this development were planted in Winter NAMM 2019, when a chance encounter between Curleigh and Oberheim took place. “After over 30 years of being without it, I am thrilled to once again be able to use the Oberheim trademark for my products,” said Oberheim. “I am very grateful to the new leadership team of Gibson for making this possible.”

Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 w/ GliGli Upgrade SN 2919

via this auction

"Prophet 600 with GliGli mod recently professionally serviced in this last month. The Voice Boards, Main Board, and Power Supply have all been fully recapped with the Synthchaser Capacitor Kit. Other services performed include a new LED display was installed, two chips were replaced in Voices 1 and 5, all voices were tested and calibrated, new battery installed, new Audio Out jack installed, and all knobs and switches were cleaned.

In addition, a high quality ZIF socket was installed for very easy switching back and forth between the GliGli Teensy and the original CPU. This sale includes the original OS, however, in my honest opinion, the GliGli mod upgrades the sound of the P600 light years beyond what the original CPU was ever capable of. Even through good studio monitors YouTube demos do not it justice. It is truly a Nitro boost to the sound!

The combo of the GliGli upgrade, plus the full recap, calibration, and cleaning has left this Prophet 600 sounding pristine. The sound is large, deep and sophisticated. I also own a Prophet 5 and often times I just simply prefer the sound of the GliGli P600!"

Hartmann Neuron

via this auction

"Excellent condition and Gorgeous Hartmann Neuron. It has been well cared for in a smoke free studio and covered when not in use, a new battery was put in it a year ago and it was fully cleaned and looked over by a tech. Functions absolutely perfectly inside and out.

It can't be said enough about how incredible it sounds and one of the key aspects of it aside from the sound is the control you have over everything. It's massive amounts of modulation at your disposal and unique LFO's and mixer make this thing something truly special. It is simple to operate once you understand what the terminology means for the main parts of the signal path, and it is just so easy and beautiful to create on."

Korg Patch of the week videos.


Published on Jul 20, 2019

オリジナルのFM音源YM2203+SEGA PCMをMODX7で演奏するにあたり、FM音源パートは、MODX7のFM-X音源で、サンプリング音源のベースもFM-X音源で、PCMドラムサウンドは、MODX7のAWM2音源のドラムキット"8Z RX11"を使ってます。
シーケンスデータは、YAMAHA QY700で作成しました。
まず、OPN系FM音源YM2203のパラメーターをOPP系FM音源YM2164を搭載するYAMAHA DX21に移植しました。
そしてDX7で作った音色を、YAMAHA FM Converterを使って、MODX7のFM-X音源に変換しました。
2019年現在の最新のFM-X音源で作ったSPACE HAPPIERの曲を、ぜひ聴いて下さいね♪


I tried to play BGM "MAIN THEME" of SEGA's experience game "SPACE HARRIER" on YAMAHA MODX7.
When playing the original FM sound source YM2203 + SEGA PCM on MODX7, the FM sound source part is the FM-X sound source of MODX7, the sampling sound source base is the FM-X sound source, the PCM drum sound is the drum of AWM2 sound source of MODX7 I am using the kit "8Z RX11".
Sequence data was created on the YAMAHA QY700.
Save the completed sequence data as SMF format data, transfer it to a USB memory using a PC, and load it from the USB memory to the MODX7's built-in sequencer.
The hardest part is the tone of the FM sound source.
First, the parameters of the OPN FM source YM2203 were ported to the YAMAHA DX21 equipped with the OPP FM source YM2164.
Next, the tone created with the DX21 was ported to the DX7 equipped with the OPS FM source YM2128.
Then I used the YAMAHA FM Converter to convert the sound I created with DX7 to MOD-X's FM-X sound source.
Since MODX7 can use the tone of DX7, if you complete the tone with DX7, you can bring the tone to MODX7 as it is.
In this way, it is possible to reproduce FM sound source sounds used in arcade games of the 80's as well as upper sound source FM-X sound sources.
Please listen to the SPACE HAPPIER song made with the latest FM-X sound source as of 2019 ♪
And I want you to listen with the speaker if you can.

Ciat-Lonbarde Rolzer patching

Published on Jul 20, 2019 hajimmie

"Rolzer, consists of a lot of rollz, is deep in patching. It’s not obvious or comprehensive. It can generate interesting noise but usually just randomly patching doesn’t yield such result. Interaction between even and odd rollz is basically the starting point to patching.

Here I’ve started by 2 sets of rollz patching for 2 ultrasound filters of the Plumbutter. My plan is to generate continuous noise sounds to listen rather than pulses for trigger sources. So, one set is listening a 3 roll by a ultrasound and for the other set a 5 roll is listened by another ultrasound. For starter, the first rollz set is 3-5-6 rollz interconnected and the later is 3-4-5 rollz respectfully. Later those two sets are interconnected to ‘sync’ each other."
