"This auction is for a Roland OP-8 module NEW and still in its factory box!

Included also its brand new and sealed Roland original DCB Cable and factory instructions

The Roland OP-8 is basically a CV to DCB interface, designed to control Roland polyphonic synthesizers equipped with DCB via the Roland MC-4 Microcomposer, but it works with any other standard CV/GATE Analog Sequencer. It has also multiples allowing creative possibilities

The OP-8 can control the Roland Jupiter 8 cut-off frequency of the VCF and the level of the VCA (expression control)

The unit is 220V, equipped with the European Plug"

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me.

ASM Hydrasynth Oscillator + Mutator In Depth Tutorial

Published on Oct 25, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"In this video, we take an in-depth tour of the ASM Hydrasynth's Oscillators and Mutators. If you want to know more, check out our Signal article here:

ASM's Hydrasynth is a tremendously powerful digital synthesizer with its own rich set of options for sound design. It uses a unique sonic vocabulary throughout, offering deep options that any synthesist will love exploring. The oscillators provide 219 waveshapes and the option for WaveScanning—a wavetable-like technique for smooth wave morphing.

Each Hydrasynth voice also features four Mutators (or Mutants)...processes that enable classic effects like FM, sync, and PWM. The Mutators take each of these techniques into far deeper territory than typically possible, however, often transforming these familiar tricks into something entirely new.

Even without touching the filters or effects, the Hydrasynth is an incredibly powerful instrument.

Brett Naucke - "Pulse Reader" (Music video by brownshoesonly)

Published on Oct 25, 2019 MAKEN0ISE

"'Pulse Reader,' a track from Brett Naucke's new EP "Electronic Hypnosis Program" on Make Noise Records!

Recorded in Chicago on a Eurorack system full of Make Noise modules, "Electronic Hypnosis Program" presents an eclectic collection of experimental electronic works for sampled voice, field recordings and synthesized sound.

"Electronic Hypnosis Program" follows Naucke's acclaimed 2018 release "The Mansion" (on Spectrum Spools), and continues his exploration of marrying an ever-evolving practice of advanced synthesis techniques with personal and conceptual narratives. Beyond live performance, Naucke has provided the original scores for several films, sound design for interactive gaming, and presented many works for multi-channel audio installations.

Pressed to clear, 12" 140g vinyl with full color artwork by Bill Connors, the record will be available in a limited edition on November 1st!

This video was created by acclaimed Chicago visual artist brownshoesonly, created in a single take on an LZX industries Memory Palace, influenced by and reacting to 'Pulse Reader.'"

WMD DVCA - Using the UPD A input

Published on Oct 25, 2019 WMDevices

"The WMD DVCA is a powerful little dual VCA eurorack module in 4hp. It is great for all sizes of modular synthesizer rigs big and small. The Zero Crossing Detector (ZCD) allows you to use snappy envelopes on smooth waveforms and eliminate clicks and pops.

There has been some mystery around the UPD A jack of the module which essentially lets you sample voltages to set the amplitude level of the VCA. In this video, Alex runs through two potential uses for this input and why you might decide to use it in a future patch."


Published on Oct 25, 2019 LESINDES

"This is another episode of PURE ANALOG here with VINTAGE synth ROLAND JUPITER 4 (JP4 is used strictly monophonic here using only VCO 1 without the internal chorus FX in order to guarantee comparability) -- PURE ANALOG is a project to find out and show the qualities of analog synthesizers and eventually also hybrids. And exciting Question is also how contemporary synths like this lush GRP A-2 or EREBUS NYX compare to vintage legends like MINIMOOG or ARP ODYSSEY or ROLAND JUPITER 4 etc. So this piece will be played and performed with different synths in the future track by track recorded in DAW without any equing or otherwise processed in DAW, no add modulation, reverb, saturatio or other FX. Only a mastering compressor, EQ and Limiter is used on the sum. So what you hear is completely un-FX-ed material -- almost impossible to find these days!!!"

Noise Engineering Pura Ruina - Three-stage CV Controlled Full-wave Rectifier and VCA

Uploaded on Oct 21, 2019 Noise Engineering

0:07 Overview & mini jam
0:35 What is a rectifier?
0:57 Sine Wave demo
2:30 Percussion demo
3:00 Complex VCA
3:42 Jam

"Pura Ruina is a three-stage CV-controlled fully-hyphenated full-wave rectifier/distortion designed for audio. Simple waveforms can be manipulated into completely new and exciting tones, and already-complex sounds can be shredded into sonic oblivion. Add some CV and you’ll never want to let PR out of your rack!

Each stage has an individual level control with corresponding CV and individual out, as well as feeding to the universal Sum output. PR’s rectification creates a unique flavor of distortion unlike standard wavefolding or clipping.

The possibilities are virtually endless: add to a west-coast style complex oscillator setup for unique timbral shaping, annihilate a percussion mix through it, run its individual outs through other Ruina modules for further mayhem...

You’ll never run out of awesome things to try, we promise. You know you want one."

Hello everyone!

Here is a demonstration of what the '90's Future Pad' patch sounds like from the SR-JV80-04 Vintage Synth expansion card, powered by my Roland JD-990 synthesizer, paired with a midi controller. These sounds are straight from the synthesizer, the only tweaks that I made were minor volume adjustments. Thank you for watching and listening to my video! Please like this video, and subscribe to my channel for future updates. God bless! To God be all of the glory, forever and ever!

BARD Synthesizers - PONTIUS (Vacuum Tube Pentode VCA)

Published on Oct 24, 2019 eightball

"BARD Synthesizers - PONTIUS is an analog vacuum tube voltage controlled amplifier module for eurorack modular synthesizers."


"True tube VCA for Eurorack modular synthesizer format. It can perform as traditional synth VCA, unbalanced audio rate modulator or control voltage processor. Thanks to unique pentode characteristics it is possible to set up output gain with given control voltage, yet the wave shape is changing in the whole volume range. Unique wave shape output offers wide tonal gamut.

Buchla 208 & 248 with Eurorack Drums

Published on Oct 25, 2019 isvisible isinvisible

"The Buchla 208r being sequenced by itself and a 248r.

The 208r is generating two voices, one a steady bass note using the Modulator Oscillator, the other a more varied one using the audio from the Complex Oscillator being manipulated by the Pulser and EG mixed in the Portabellabz 208 Toolbox.

The Eurorack drums are all being driven by the 208 Toolbox all pulses out, then being multiplied using a Doepfer A-160-5 (clock multiplier), then into a Doepfer A-160-2 (clock divider) to generate different timings into switches for variations for the bass drum, snare and noise. Then the drums are all fed into a Modcan Dual Delay."

Listen To A Yamaha VP-1 - One of the Rarest Instruments

Published on Oct 25, 2019 sonicstate

Starts with Buchla bongos. You have to pay more for decent bongos - bongos = expensive.

"At the Yamaha 45 years streaming event in Hamamatsu, Japan, we were lucky enough to get a tour of the Innovation Road - Yamaha's history of products museum - which incidentally is open to the public. One of the items on display is the physical modeling VP-1 - one of Yamaha's physical modeling instrument from 1994 - it is incredibly rare, with only a handful of units in existence.

We persuaded's Nate Tschetter to fire it up and let us have a listen."
