Volca FM Ambient Live Recording

Published on Oct 29, 2019 RemixSample

"Hi! Here is a very simple Ambient Improvisation Jam with KORG Volca FM. I setup FL Studio in Loop recording mode. Recorded two audio tracks using two different patches (OB Genivivy & LFO Sweep) I then play over it using the -Wobble1- patch. All of these patches are included in the Default set of Dexed (

So this is not a fantastic song or anything. I made this video to show how easy it is to get something going using the Volca FM and a good sounding reverb. This audio is something I could use as a backing track for a song in the future or resample and make beats out of.

Effect used: EQ and Valhalla Shimmer"

And the press release including price:

"British company DUBREQ announces the launch of its much-anticipated STYLOPHONE GEN R-8 touch analog synthesizer.

Designed and manufactured in Britain.

Since its invention in the late 1960s, the Stylophone’s raw electronic tones have been loved across the world.

Now DUBREQ are about to release the biggest and most powerful Stylophone instrument yet: the STYLOPHONE GEN R-8.

This touch Analog Synthesizer is packed with features you’d expect in larger, more expensive instruments, including a full analog signal path, Dual VCOs with Saw, Square and PWM, 8 waveform LFO plus sub-oscillators for room shaking bass.

It also comes with a 16-step sequencer, a sensitive 3-octave TOUCH keyboard. a 12dB VCF with Low pass, High pass, Band pass and wide Notch, plus Glide and Modulation for more expressive performance control. All within a hefty steel enclosure.

The Gen R-8 is the ultimate Stylophone instrument, aimed at serious musicians and synth fans alike. You can use it with any kind of hardware set up to get incredibly raw and gritty sounds and comes with 19 CV/Gate patch points for advanced modular patching

The first signs are that this new Stylophone instrument could become a future cult classic and DUBREQ are limiting the first production run to only 500 of these synths.

Price for the initial 500 units:
$349 / €329 / £299"

ARP 2600P with 3604P Keyboard

via this auction

"Freshly serviced & calibrated by top UK tech, this portable two-piece ARP 2600 system works 100%. You will know all about this "benchmark" instrument, made between 1971-1980 in Mass/USA. Its a rev.3 model. Check it out on YouTube....The 3604P keyboard (s/n 361128) connects to the 2600P module (s/n 261011) with multi-pin cable. It runs at 220Vac (mains cord supplied). There are some patch sheets/leads supplied.

THREE VCOs~noise generator~sample & hold~ring modulator~great filters~glide~spring reverb~twin internal speakers:- this is a comprehensive mono synth...

"any sound can be created..." (advertising blurb by ARP)..the voice of R2D2, for example..... ARP 2600 has been on countless recordings, used by numerous musos & producers......being a bit more portable than the 2500 system did help! Having 3 tuneable oscillators means any note can play a 3-part chord, if desired.....

Condition. "Very good"....should be excellent, but the tolex on the casings is a bit scuffed, new clasps have replaced some broken ones. We intend to leave "as is" for "patina & provenance" is possible, but would involve dismemberment of the module. We prefer to not risk any damage.......hey, it LOOKS 45-ish years old.....and looks cool, anyway......."

Akai S900 MIDI Digital Sampler w/ Gotek Drive & Updated Screen

via this auction

"Akai S900 sampler upgraded with a Gotek USB floppy drive emulator, and a brand new bright high contrast blue LCD character display. One of the best 12 bit samplers around for that lo-fi crunch! The installed Gotek drive provides 1000 floppy disk images accessible by front buttons for convenient sound recall and storage. Runs either OS 1.2 or can load OS4 from a disk image. OS4 adds additional features, such as an envelope for the analog filter and a cross fade algorithm. The new LCD is very easy to read compared to the original dim LCD, but difficult to accurately depict with my camera. This S900 is 115V North American voltage.

The ram memory (non-expandable) is quite limited at 750k on the S900, but it is still enough to have a number of longer loops in memory at the lowest bit rate setting. It is approximately a minute of audio at the lowest settings. When used creatively and coupled with a sequencer, whole songs can be produced with a single S900 and sounds can be processed separately using the 8 outputs. The S900's lower bit rates are part of the charm to get the crunchiest sounds around! If you're looking for high resolution sampling look elsewhere, this machine is sought after for the unique lofi punchy character it adds."
