Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with DAVE JULIAN

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Dave Julian bought his first synthesizer, a Yamaha CS-5, in March, 1980, one week before his seventeenth birthday. Inspired by the sounds he was hearing from synthesizers and keyboards on the records that he was buying and listening to at the time, his early influences came from Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Human League, Japan, OMD, Simple Minds, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Wally Badarou, Bernie Worrell, and Herbie Hancock.

Having never undertaken musical training, his time spent playing keyboards in bands allowed him to learn composition, structure, development of melodies, and the use of chord shape variations and scales. Though unsigned, he did benefit greatly from the countless live performances, playing live on BBC radio, and many studio recording sessions.

In 1992, he bought his first sequencer and began a new journey, focusing his passion toward the creation and performance of electronic music. This is the path that brought him to where he is now. This year, he has performed his material live at various venues in the UK.

We chatted with Dave about how he uses Sequential instruments in his music."

"We're super excited to have worked with Shawn Rudiman for this weeks' Peak Patches, an incredible artist with a deep heritage and a master of his craft. 🎹🎛🎚 #techno

Learn more about Shawn and download his release via Components >>>"

"Shawn Rudiman's love of electronics and synthesizers begin with an obsession in the early to mid-1980s with the electronic pop music of the day. Those influences along with Punk and an almost decade immersed into the creation of Industrial / EBM helped lead him to Detroit Techno and House music in the late 90s. After 20 years now entrenched in Techno production and a live performance history like few others, Rudiman's quest for new and different sounds has never stopped.

Analog, additive, wavetable, sampling and FM have become everyday aspects of life. The hunt for new sonic-abilities and forgotten or new machines is still always a priority, whether it is for live performance or studio use.

Rudiman’s aesthetic is one of efficiency combined with flexibility. It's all rolled up into an encompassing sound for your head and heart... As well as your feet. From blistering percussion and alien abrasiveness, to warm and welcoming ambience and textures."

Analog Drums on a Modular Synthesizer

Published on Sep 16, 2019 George Benton

"Using a sequencer and bandpass filter to create drum sounds.
The Modular is a custom built system. Although the video says just a sequencer and a filter, (meaning no oscillators) it does require a noise source, VCA and ADSR.

The two voltages from the sequencer drive the frequency cutoff and resonance. The clock out from the sequencer goes to the ADSR gate in.

The frequency of the filter determines the "pitch range" Higher range for cymbals, brushes etc. Lower range for toms, bass etc.

The resonance affects the "drum head" effect. More resonance for pronounced pitch like wood block or toms etc. Lower resonance for a more pitched noise effect."

Vintage 60s Moog Troubador Theremin

Anyone know about these? Curious if it actually is from Moog. Bob Moog started out building theremin kits, but by the 60s he was building modulars. I took a quick look at Theremin World, but didn't see it.

Crumar DS-2 SN SN 327

via this auction

"Lightly used. Fresh from estate of noted Kansas City jazz artist. I have been playing with this synth for the last two weeks and it has some amazing capabilities. The only function that I have found to not work properly is the release time for the poly section. It is likely just a card that needs cleaned. Several YouTube tutorials on this subject of handling the attack and release cards and their simple repairs. The inside of the unit is incredibly clean."

Oberheim FVS-1 Four Voice Synthesizer 1976 SN 0103

via this auction

"This is a great example of a four voice. This unit was restored recently, with rebuilt power supply and decoupling caps replaced on all boards, pots cleaned, keyboard bushings replaced and entire keybed cleaned and polished out, and oscillator tracking calibrated.

It plays and sounds incredible. Only issues are that the master volume pot is a little scratchy (only when adjusted), and memory store/recall does not work properly despite replacement battery. Memory storage on this keyboard is not very useful anyway - since some of the most important settings cannot be stored with a patch by design (modulation routing, etc.). The more useful features of the optional programmer module all work perfectly (vibrato, centralized pitch, filter control and envelopes). Tolex is original, and some bumps, bruises and rips have been professionally touched up (worst of it was on the lid)."

Sequential Circuits Six-Trak Synthesizer w/ OSC Output Mod

via this auction

"Sequential Circuits Six-Trak Synthesizer w/ OSC Output Mod/New Firmware/Battery. Condition is Used.

Six-Trak synth in solid physical condition. Everything works, plays and sounds great. The battery has been replaced and all contacts have been cleaned. Surface marks & scratches are visible, and the mod wheel has a crack going across the surface. Please see photos. This does not affect playback or use.

The inside is a small DIY mess of wires and breadboards to make the separate outputs possible. If this is a concern, message me and I can open it for photos. There is some floor noise when using the separate outputs with quieter sounds, but a gate worked fine.

The mod output with a stacked & detuned unison really makes this synth unique and one of a kind."
