Akai AX60 Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

Note: I was wondering what looked off and realized it's the top row of buttons. They appear faded, almost white in these pics. Usually they are blue. White buttons would have given the AX60 a completely different feel.

"Vintage AX60 analog synth with custom walnut wood end caps in excellent, perfect functional condition. All keys, switches, knobs, and controls work perfectly, and the synth has just completely serviced and calibrated. The ax60 is one of my absolute favorite synths of all time. It is just mean and big and powerful and NASTY! It is so versatile, unique and relatively inexpensive, A great alternative to the now hilariously priced jupiters, prophets, and even Juno 60s.

Wicked filters, awesome memory and midi implementation, super-stable DCO's, this beast has it all. HUGE pads, SEARING leads, and earth shaking basses. WOW. Cross modulation, bizzaro FX ability and on board sampler! SINGLE BEST FEATURE: 1 button unison mode to stack all of those oscillators into one soul crushing lead or bass, AMAZING! The synth sounds (of course) INCREDIBLE! All of those squishy, squelchy, gnarly analog leads and fat, beefy, rumbling basses are on tap, as well as every knob-twiddled beep, boop, and spaced out tweeky tone and spooky, etherial pad, This thing is definitely THE Juno/ Jupiter killer to own.

Cosmetically, the board is in very nice shape, as the pictures attest, with only the lightest exterior play and handling wear one would expect of a well loved, well cared for and well played instrument of this age and pedigree. You won’t find it’s better."

EMS Synthi AKS

Update: this one is currently listed for sale here. Some pics and details follow.

via this auction

"A very tidy EMS Synthi AKS.

Serviced by Jeff B at The Analog Lab
www dot theanaloglab dot com.

There are some minor scuffs and scratches, but as you can see from the photos, it is in overall very good cosmetic condition especially considering its age.

It comes with the three Presto-Patches and original Documentation.
It works great, however, it is a vintage synth from the early 1970s and sometimes gear of this age can have the occasional quirky outburst.
Since it's back from the service though it's been pretty solid!

As for the work in the service, the Power supply was recapped, pots were cleaned/replaced,
Oscillators were modified (matched transistors on Lin to log conversion)
Electrolytic Capacitors on PCB (aprox 30) were replaced
Connectors on PCB.s were cleaned.
Trimmers on PCB's for calibration (aprox 21) were replaced
Reverb circuit was repared..
Full calibration also performed.

Beautiful Specimen which I am sad to let go, but am funding the build of my studio.

$17,500 Or Best Offer.
Sold As Is."

Elektron's Analog Heat Gets an Update

via Elektron

"With the new Analog Heat OS 1.20, we’ve added features that will expand the usability of our powerful sound processor, enabling more sound sculpting possibilities and experimentation. With these new features, plus a few improvements and bug fixes, 1.20 is here for your fiery leisure!

Class compliant audio over USB
We’ve added support for class compliant audio over USB. This means that you will have new possibilities when using the Analog Heat together with devices that supports class compliant audio (such as computers, phones or tablets) making it an even more flexible partner in your setup. Practically this means you now may use the unit in a bunch of different scenarios - for example, as an audio interface, recording the processed sound, or as a sound processor for your USB audio host. You can also use the USB audio host as a pre or post effect for the Analog Heat. The choice is yours.

Check out all the routing options in the new Audio Routing menu. Here you can setup up the audio routing in a multitude of different ways to suit your particular setup and needs.

Preset transfer
You can now export and import the Analog Heat’s presets and settings. This enables safe storage of your favorite presets and settings, and the possibility to reload them at your convenience.

For a full list of improvements and fixes, check the release notes.

Download Analog Heat OS 1.20 here.

If you use the Overbridge Beta, you will need to update to the new Overbridge release, which is also released today to support the new 1.20 firmware. You can download this at Elektronauts (log-in required)."

Quick Tip: Cowbell Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Patch Tutorial

Published on Oct 8, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"This quick tip shows how to make a cowbell sound inspired by the famous TR-808 cowbell.

You will need:
- a trigger source (clock or sequencer)
- one envelope generatorr (with exponential decay)
- two VCOs (voltage controlled oscillators) with square wave outputs
- a mixer with at least two channels
- one VCA (voltage controlled amplifier)
- a bandpass filter

The patch:
- square wave outputs of two detuned oscillators to mixer inputs
- mixer output to VCA audio input
- trigger source to trigger input of the envelope generator
- envelope generator output to VCA CV control
- VCA output to bandpass filter
- bandpass output is your cowbell

The TR-808 cowbell is one of the most distinctive of analog drum sounds, and it is a fairly simple sound to recreate with a modular synthesizer. Two square wave VCOs are mixed together and then run through a VCA. The VCA is opened with an exponential decay envelope and then run through a band pass filter.

To get a sound similar to the 808 you can tune your oscillators to 587 and 845 Hertz. The fun thing about building this sound in eurorsack is that you can try different tunings, or even modulate or sequence the tuning of the oscillators."

How-To: Sequence and control synths using the Arturia Keystep

Published on Oct 8, 2019 littleBIGsynths

"Hey guys! 🙂 Here is another tutorial on the Arturia Keystep! In this video, I show you guys how to use the "Kbd Play" function to sequence and play synths live at the same time. This is a nifty little feature that I think some people may have overlooked/missed! I have used it in a few jams and demos in the past and have received questions regarding this topic nearly everytime. lol So, I thought it would make a neat video.

I think the Keystep is a great keyboard and can be a great center piece of a simple setup: The simplicity and connectivity, along with some poly synths and a drum machine... definitely some fun to be had. lol"

You can also clamp then onto an existing X-stand as well.

Seems reasonably priced too:"

SYNTHFEST 2019 - DPW Design Shape - Compressor Spectral Enhancer

Published on Oct 8, 2019 sonicstate

"Shape HS-1 is a combination of a compressor/limiter and a dynamically dependent spectral enhancer. It works very well as a pseudo stereo device where it can do everything from subtle to extreme spectrally enhanced stereo spreading.

It can also be like an odd take of something almost like a transient designer or a very open sounding distortion.
We also got a look at the new Zero 1HP intelligent switcher."
