"This is another episode of PURE ANALOG here with VINTAGE synth OBERHEIM SEM (= Synthesizer Expander Module). Two of these SEM units make the sound engine of a TWO VOICE (TVS) and four of them obviously a FOUR VOICE -- 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!!!"

"So glad I caught this on film - here’s what happened when the fantastic Liz Dobson showed me how to take my first steps on one of of Huddersfield Universities (2!!) incredible vintage EMS VCS-3 synthesizers - unquestionably one of the greatest synthesizers of all time, and as you’ll hear (stay with it right till the end!!) one with more character than you can possibly wiggle a joystick at. Dream. Machine."

Buchla Easel Demos by 刘青

"The SYNTH PRO is the advanced, polyphonic version of the SYNTH II.

All oscillators are discretely structured. So here are for the sound base so no highly integrated chips are used, but proven components that even in Synthesizer 40 years ago produced a great analog sound. If required, the VCOs can be switched over to the particularly stable DCO mode, for example if unfavorable environmental conditions have to be overcome. The provided waveforms can be superimposed and additionally modulated by different sources. VCO2 and VCO3 can be synchronized to the first oscillator. For this purpose, VCO1 and VCO2 can be frequency-modulated with VCO3. In the SYNTH PRO, two filters are used per voice, which can be connected in series or in parallel. The low-pass filter works as a cascade filter with a slope of 24 dB / oct. and uses the popular SSI 2144. Multifilter and VCAs are based on OTA's. Both filters and the VCA's can be modulated by different sources. The LFOs and envelopes are calculated per voice by fast processor. There is also a dedicated chip for the effects section. This can produce not only reverb and echo but also chorus and flanging effects. The built-in sequencer works polyphonically and is available in addition to a monophonic arpeggiator.

* Eight-part analog desktop synthesizer
* Analogue VCOs, switchable to DCO operation
* Sawtooth <> Triangle <> Rectangle / Pulse <> Ringmodulator / Noise can be crossfaded
* Sync and FM in VCO mode
* 3 oscillators, each with sub-OSC
* Analog 24-dB low-pass filter
* Analog 12-dB multi-mode filter with low, high and band-pass characteristics
* 2 analog VCA
* 2 LFOs (sawtooth, rectangle, triangle, random), tempo-syncable, one-shot mode
*3 envelope generators: 2 x ADSR, 1 x ADS (R), each with loop function
* Effects section with reverb, echo, chorus and other effect types
* Fully storable
* Integrated arpeggiator and polyphonic step sequencer
* Send and receive MIDI CC's
* Made in Germany
* Stable metal chassis
* Recommended retail price: 1080 Euro

With its (it's actually her 😜) "Vangelian" / Blade Runner character, this synth can achieve some amazing sounds, having a very nice modulation matrix.

And the effects?! Good God! Heavenly!

Drones, pads, bass lines, arps, leads, rhythms! - everything you can create has its special vibe, putting you in a Blade Runner mood, for sure.

THE PROMISES OF FLIGHT: Halloween 2019 Live dawless Volca Jam #VolcaModular #Keys #Bass #VolcaDrum

Published on Oct 29, 2019 Gary P Hayes

Spotted this one on discchord.

"Continuous live dawless jam / improvisation - SciFi Halloween
Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes in Mount Victoria Australia using
Korg #VolcaBass #VolcaModular #VolcaDrum #VolcaKeys
SFX & Solos on KO2 Reverb/Delay on Strymon Blue Sky
directly recorded on #ZoomH6 plus ambient sound no other processing

"Rough story breakdown - opens, green misty planet, small shuttle appears, crash lands on misty alien planet, drowsy pilot explores around the base of infinitely tall cliffs, in the twilight creatures eyes peer out in the deep forest, breathing, hissing, overhead the occasional space ship blares past, days seem to pass, being followed, distant bells call, see light on hill, panics, runs, enters dark alien 'castle', signs of humanity, but memories, corridors of gruesome happenings, dreamtime, escape from this world, finds unused shuttle on rooftop, flys, escapes over the endless forest, a moment of triumph, but a creature lurks in the shuttle, slo motion struggle, crash, melancholy, it all begins again"

Normally: All the Volcas and the KO2 are routed through MickXer 5 into 1. That then goes into the Zoom MS70 delay/reverb in stereo, then into the Zoom H6 recorder which powers my Beyer DT770 headphones for great mix balancing in real time. The volcas are sync'd as usual in a cv chain with each others in/out and v Drum as master. Also the Zoom H6 will eventually record 3 stereo tracks simultaneously (the vKeys and vModular through the effects) the vDrum and vBass (direct) and the two mics recording the ambient outdoor sounds live. For outdoor jams, power comes from normal phone style powerbanks 10000 & 20000mAh and I use the myvolts ripcord 5V to 9V USB adapter"

New BugBrand PT Delay and Penrose

"Two new modules have been released - the PT Delay and Penrose.

the PT is a compact delay along the lines of the larger red design but without the extra trimmings of preamp & filtering

the Penrose is a great open-source quantizer by Sonic Potions with keyboard buttons for scale selection"

Updated BugBrand CrossOver Filter & Expander

"The CrossOver Filter has undergone a large upgrade and now re-enters regular production. While it looks the same from the outside (bar the line on the yellow Drive control changing from white to black) the insides have been completely updated - the main new features being that the input is now balanced and I added voltage control to the resonance/Q (accessible via a planned 2FW Expander), along with general improvements at a circuit level. My personal setups always feature a COFilter and PTDelay on mixer aux sends - the COFilter adding all manner of tonal playfulness - subtle or extreme frequency enhancements or eliminations."

via this auction

"Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) is a highly-interactive, Semi-Modular Analog PercussionSynthesizer and a vibrant deviation from the traditional drum machine. As the newest addition to theMother-32 family, DFAM presents a uniquely expressive hands-on approach to percussive patterncreation, inviting a deeply personal bond with each human being it encounters.

Emphasizing tactile exploration and experimentation, DFAM inspires completely new and uniquemanners with which visceral rhythms can be synthesized, expressed, and experienced. DFAMeffortlessly moves from gently evolving undulations and cyclical breathing patterns to hammering bassand clangorous cacophony, but the true beauty of this unique instrument lies in its ability tocontinuously spark inspiration through the repeated discovery of new and dynamic perspectives inpercussive synthesis."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 SN 5537 w/ Original Box, Manual & Tape

via this auction

Video in the listing previously posted here.

"For your consideration is the closest you'll find to a new-old-stock Sequential Circuits Prophet 600. As you can see from the pics, the synth looks as if it was never used, and according to the original owner, it pretty much hasn't. Also included is the original box and packing foam, the original preset-cassette, and the original manual. The original receipt of purchase is inside the manual, dating to 5/25/1985.
The synth was recently serviced by Analog Synth Service in Oakland, the top Sequential tech.
It is worth noting that there are small pockets of air under the touchpad, which can be felt and/or heard, but in no way affect the functionality of the touch pad. All buttons work properly.

About the P600:
Released in 1982, the Prophet 600 is the brother of the legendary Prophet 5 synthesizer, but has its own distinct character and sound. The Prophet 600 was also the first commercial synthesizer to implement MIDI and can store up to 100 patches in memory. The Prophet 600 features 6 voices of polyphony and has 2 oscillators per voice (VCOs - saw, triangle and pulse), oscillator sync, a low pass filter, 2 envelopes for VCF and VCA, arpeggiator, sequencer, glide and poly mod functions (to create FM timbres). The Prophet 600 is a versatile and capable analog synth and it excels at drones, pads, brassy sounds and cutting leads. The Prophet 600 "Gligli" upgrade also enhances it further with snappier envelopes, more LFO waveshapes, new arpeggiator functions, unison detune and more."

I also made 4 presets with a small arrangement and in a set of settings changing to a higher pitch in Load Runner.

All in my new RackBrute 6U from Arturia.

The preset is great for setting all your changes in the next preset, you can change every setting and it will save it. The preset is ideal for use for live performances besides that proven by itself."

Volca Drum: what's pitch quantization?

Published on Oct 30, 2019 Hyperobjeckt Synths

"Today I want to talk about a feature added to the Volca Drum after launch that I think is a big deal. The feature is pitch quantization, which allows you to set pitch by note. I'll show you how to install this feature, how to access it in the part parameters menu, and how to program a simple melodic pattern.

0:45 how to install the update
1:50 accessing pitch quantization
3:00 programming a pattern

To check the firmware version on your Volca Drum, hold down the play button and turn it on. The display will show you two numbers: "MAI" is your main system version, and "PNL" is your panel version. If your main system version is older than 1.14, you're gonna need to update."

Was hard enough to refrain myself not to add some reverb and delay after I recorded, and I bet you'd love it!

But I wanted to capture the raw sound of the JUNO-60 emulated in this baby box! So, no external FX, EQing or mastering.

The JU-06A it's snappy and loud enough (as all the Boutiques) and it sounds nice!

Using here a synced random LFO to drive the cutoff to obtain this sequence.

Hope you'll enjoy!
