"The myVolts mickXer is a 5-way passive mixer with five stereo input channels and one stereo output channel, each with a 1/8" (3.5mm) connection. It gives a high-quality, balanced, noise-reduced output, suitable for recording or live setups.

With the mickXer, you can mix five stereo inputs down to one stereo output. You can, of course, just use just one, two, three or four of the inputs in any configuration that suits your setup.

Please note that the mickXer is not intended as a standalone device and should be connected to either a recorder or amplification device, such as an amp, speakers, or powered headphones.

mickXer works great with any music gear: Korg Volcas, Roland Boutiques, Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators and thousands more
mickXer contains noise filtering technology, removing irritating ground loop hums and other noises. It’s the perfect accessory if you experience any noise using the myVolts Korg Volca 5-way power splitter or myVolts Roland Boutique 5-way power splitter
mickXer is fully passive, so doesn’t need a power supply, or batteries
Microsuction feet let mickXer stick securely but impermanently to almost any surface, while allowing it to be moved and restuck to any surface without leaving any stickiness or residue behind.
Multiple mickXers can be daisy chained, so the possibilities for the ingenuitive desktop musician are limitless
mickXer will also work as an audio signal splitter, but do be aware that amplification is required to drive headphones
mickXer is fully safety and quality tested: it’s CE-certified, RoHS-certified, FCC-certified, EMC-tested
mickXer comes in two colours – Console Black or Go-Faster Red.

Synth Stuff Ep. 60 - Oberheim OB-8

Published on Sep 15, 2019 tritonrecordings

"My favorite analog polyphonic synth ever. Oberheim synths just have a distinctive sound about them compared to other big analog synths...there's something very synthwave/retrowave about them. And just look at it! Nothing but a slight bit of reverb is added to the sound here. Happy 60th Episode of Synth Stuff."

Electribe 2 Sampler + AE Modular Synth #TTNM

Published on Sep 15, 2019 THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Another jam with the Korg Electribe 2 Sampler and AE Modular. More info below :)


To make things easier for me with the Electribe 2S, I used this blank pattern file to reset all factory content:

... and this cool sample manager for OSX and Windows:

For this jam I used AE Modular drum samples again, which I synthesized with the modular the old-school way, without drum modules, but with regular VCOs, filters, a waveshaper, a lowpass gate, etc.

So all sounds are from the AE Modular, even those coming from the Electribe Sampler. The groovebox is clocking the AE Modular via its analog sync output (the one you also find on the Korg Volca devices) and there are two modular synth voices running in the AE rack. One with a SEQ16 melody and another with just two alternating notes.

During the jam I tweak filter and envelope parameters on the AE Modular and mutes and effects on the Electribe."

Mallets - Metallophon, Morphagene, Mimeophone, Freak, O Coast, VCV Rack, Midilar

Published on Sep 15, 2019 Omri Cohen

"So for this one, I took my sons toy metallophone and recorded it into the Make Noise Mimeophon. In VCV Rack, I have the ADDR sequencer sequencing the O-Coast, and a few oscillators going into Pulsars from the Geodesics collection for this nice wavetable feel. I send the O-Coast through the hardware version of Freak, and from there to Chronoblob 2 and Rescomb 2 in VCV Rack. I also have some nature sounds I've recorded in the Morphagene to add to the atmosphere.

Marion MSR-2 Analog Synthesizer

via this auction,
also on Gearslutz.

"legendary and rare sound module Marion MSR-2. This device was designed by Tom Oberheim, and produced in very small amount, like ~100 pcs only. Boasts for well known and easy detecting sound of Oberheim devices, offer 8 voices, SEM filters, direct inputs into filter, other beloved sweet things. If you looking onto this module, you know what is it, but more detail if forgot, or never seen : [posted here - link fixed].

Physically device in very good condition considering age, except a bit bent left ear, but flat in fact/small chipped paint, from previous owner. All buttons, encoders, LCD working perfectly, no faults, original outboard PSU with clean dense DIN connector."

MFB Dominion 1 Monophonic Synthesizer

via this auction

"A mighty 3 oscillator mono synth that is commonly compared to a voyager. This thing is amazing! 14 different filter types on this beast! 4LPF, 4BPF, 2HPF and 2Notch. This thing is SO versatile and pretty much “knob per function” which makes it a joy to use. It’s in wonderful condition and has been strictly a studio synth. I’ve cared for it to the highest degree. This is the item I am most bummed to sell out of all of them. They are hard to come by stateside."

* Live looping of audio and instrument / MIDI clips, including easy overdubbing / layering, and automatic tempo setting

* Auto-extending of clip length during note recording
* Recording count-in
* Recording audio or MIDI directly into arrangement tracks
* Audio thru
* Alphanumeric keyboard, allowing text-based names of presets and files
* Deleting of audio and preset files
* New preset-loading interface, with "clone" function for adding multiple preset instances
* USB host mode for MIDI devices
* Ability to switch off automatic sample previewing"
* Expanded MIDI control of functions for pedal control of live looping
* Further CPU optimizations to allow an even greater number of sounds to be played at once

Loopop has created an excellent walkthrough video on the Deluge to coincide with the V3.0 firmware release. Skip to 30mins to just check out the new features, but watching the whole video offers a nice little refresh over some of the core functionality."
