Pro One Synthesizer: A Few Sounds

Published on Nov 2, 2019 rezfilter

"Take it up a notch!

So here's what an actual Pro One synthesizer sounds like.

The SCI Pro One was recorded direct, with some analogue drums thrown in for context (Analogue Solutions Concussor eurorack drum modules).

Many of the sounds were sequenced or modulated with an Analogue Solutions analogue Oberkorn sequencer and others were only the Pro One's built-in sequencer running the show.


Stroh Modular 4U Loudest Warning Format Modular System

via this auction

"This is a one of a kind custom full plug-and-play Loudest Warning System made, designed, hand wired / built and modified by Stroh / J3rk.

This is my favorite synth I've ever owned (and I've had everything from Cwejman, to Macbeth, Moog, etc) but I really need to pay off some student debt so unfortunately here goes.

It includes 8 Loudest Warning format modules professionally custom built by Stroh / J3rk and modified (per request) to work perfectly with 12v and 15v Power. None of these modules have ever been for sale.

Whats included in this bundle -

LW Modules (I've never seen any of these modules for sale before, kits or complete) -
Stroh - MCVCO With Buchla Knobs (Complex Thru Zero VCO / LFO)
Stroh - DPO LW module (Complex VCO / LFO)
Stroh - Q Q LW module (Wavefolder, Scanner, Mixer?)
Stroh - Dual Angle LW module (Dual Envelope / Transient generator, LFO, Logic generator)
Stroh - MSF (Lowpass, Bandpass, Highpass filter with dual FM inputs and pinging)
Stroh - Dual VCA LW module
Stroh - Out LW module (Dual output module with panning, independent mono 1/4" outs and a summed stereo / headphone output.
Stroh - M I (Midi interface with gate output and 2 CV outputs) Works great with my Keyboard.
Boat / Skiff / Power
cLee - Loudest Warning steel boat w/ option for rack ears.
cLee - Loudest Warning Bus board with extra spaces for more LW modules.
High quality 15v pre-wired Plug-and Play Serge Power supply.
16 Pomona Banana Cables (Various lengths)
2 long TS 1/4" to 1/8" cables for hooking the mixer into your Eurorack, etc.
1 Very long Hosa TRS 1/4 to 1/8 cable
1 Midi Cable.
2 New Gold Plated TRS to Female XLR cables for main stereo output.
2 New Gold Plated Male TRS to Male XLR cables for main output.
2 Monster 1/4" TS Gold plated cables.
Gold Plated 1/4" to 1/8" Headphone adaptor.
Bonus Free!
If you are a module builder (or know one) I can include a few cLee LW Faceplate's, PCB's and Brackets as I will not have time to make these anytime soon unfortunately. Please let me know if you would like them.
cLee - Bits PCB's + faceplate (some components added, not by me)
cLee - VC Timer PCB's + Faceplate set
cLee - Euclidian Sequencer PCB + Faceplate set
cLee - 3 LW PCB Brackets

Each module in this skiff is very rare and has never been for sale retail (check google), They may be one-off modules. Stroh does not make many modules for other people (maybe none anymore?) so I'll doubt these will ever come up again for sale."

Black Acidlab Bombass

"Acidlab Bassline analogue synth, 303 on steroids . Great condition, hardly used. 303 with ring mod, sub osc, and 2nd vco. That acidlab 303 sound which is as good as it gets"

Vintage Oberheim OB-8 Analog Synthesizer SN C33725

via this auction

"This synth has been in our studio's in-house, climate/humidity controlled storage for a number of years. It is in original, 1983 unrestored condition. The steel chassis and wood side panels are in excellent condition. The paintwork is glossy with only a few small nicks. We don't know the history of this keyboard prior to our ownership, but it was clearly well taken care of. All knobs and buttons are in tact. All LED lights function. No rust or corrosion is visible.

We have the OB-8 listed as "for parts or not working" so as not to misrepresent the condition; however, prior to listing, we tested the unit and here is what we found. The OB-8 powers up, and makes sound. We were able to manipulate volume, tuning, hold, filters, oscillators, ADSR, pitch bend etc. Most keys function; some are intermittent, some don't seem to function.

This keyboard is approximately 36 years old. Most Oberheims of this age and era require a restoration by a qualified technician. This OB-8 is in no way ready for the stage or studio just yet, but it is an excellent candidate for restoration."

Behringer VC340 and Roland VP-03 together - Combining the analog and digital synthesizer vocoder

Published on Nov 2, 2019 Expanding Sound

"I've seen quite a few videos comparing these two units. For my money they both sound great and each have useful qualities. The VC340 is analog and has a rich warm sound with a full size key bed and great build quality. The VP-03 has it's portability, sequencing ability and built in audio interface as features that stand apart from its remake counterpart.

I wondered, instead of pitting them against each other, like others have, how do they sound together? They are so similar in tone that using them together just adds more fullness to the sound. The only difficult aspect to navigate was using a microphone. I decided to run a mic into a mixer and split it into both units. The result is a little airy as the mixer isn't the best quality, but with the strings and voice patches you can really hear how great the two sound added together. I was going to sell my VP-03 after I got the VC340. Now, I'm not so sure!"

SOUNDMIT 2019 Lilla Midi Expander

Published on Nov 2, 2019 BAMTV

"The Lilla midi expander is currently a prototype/hobby project. It is based on the Teensy 3.6 microcontroller which has powerful features. The code is open source, the machine has an eurorack format but is controlled by midi. Lilla’s controls features 12 rotary encoders and 8 pushbuttons and includes MIDI in, MIDI thru, and stereo out. Via the SD card it can load samples, layered across the keyboard, and those can be changed with pitch and envelopes. It plays back with 8 voice polyphony. It also has effects like distortion, bit crusher and compressor on board.


"Lilla is an open source project for a polyphonic midi expander, based on Teensy 3.6 microcontroller. Lilla includes:


n.1 Teensy 3.6 - overclock 240MHz
n.1 Teensy Audio Adaptor
n.1 flash memory chip W25Q256FV (32Mbyte serial flash memory)
n.3 CD74HC4067 (16-Channel Analog Multiplexer)
n.1 128x160 TFT color display
n.1 HCPL260L (single-channel optocoupler)
n.1 CD4093B (quad 2-Input NAND Schmitt Triggers)

n.12 rotary encoders with pushbutton
n.8 pushbuttons
Teensy program pushbutton
i/o interfaces:

midi in (DIN)
midi thru (DIN)
stereo line output
micro-SD socket

reading files from flash memory: 8
reading files from RAM: 12
Audio files and presets

Lilla uses 44.1kHz 16bit mono .RAW (header-less) audio files, imported from micro-SD card. Lilla can store up to 100 Sounds; a Sound is described by these elements:

an audio file
interval to be played (first sample A - last sample B): from 100 samples to full length
play mode: A -> B, B -> A, loop A -> B, loop A <-> B, loop B -> A, loop B <-> A
fine tune
ADSR parameters
Attack ramp: fast, slow
Audio file is played from flash memory until the interval to be played contains more than 675 samples. Below 675 samples, audio is played from RAM: in this case, an automatic pitch-correction keeps the sound in tune with the standard tuning (middle C: 261.6Hz).

Lilla can store up to 30 setups called Sessions; a Session is a group of up to 8 Instruments; each Instrument is defined by:

a Sound
keyboard span (first key - last key)
keys mode: momentary, hold
In a Session, all 8 Instruments can also be layered on each other.

Very Moog jam with Matriarch and Subsequent 37, Eventide Space and Timefactor, Strymon Big Sky

Published on Nov 2, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by the limited time I had with the Matriarch before having to return it to my friend. At this point I've fallen firmly in love with the Matriarch, especially in how it sounds with the Subsequent 37 on lead. It was the setup so nice I used it twice!

The beginning of this song has some serious standing-on-the-deck-of-the-Normandy-and-looking-at-the-galaxy-map vibes, which is a reference you'll either get or you won't.

Moog Matriarch + Strymon Big Sky — huge synth with eventual sync
Moog Subsequent 37 + Eventide Timefactor + Eventide Space — fuzzy guitar-ish lead

Written and performed within a 1-hour period, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master."

Moog Sub 37 vs. Analogue Solutions Nyborg-24 Comparison

Published on Nov 2, 2019 nyppy

"I've heard people refer to the Nyborg as 'the better Moog', and using both of them almost daily, I thought I'd put up a short video comparing the two. This is not meant to be a full review of either. It's mainly about the sound, specifically oscillators and filters. Both user interfaces and modulation capabilities are vastly different, and you can find reviews and tech specs elsewhere.

In my opinion, there is no clear winner in terms of sound (otherwise I wouldn't still own both). The Moog's oscillators sound warmer, but it can get more aggressive with the filter and overdrive. The Nyborg has a very pleasant sound for arpeggios and is easier to fit in a mix. Without any resonance, both filters sound very close to each other.

Do you have a favourite? Or got anything to ask? Let me know in the comments.

Yamaha Portasound PSS-140 keyboard demo - "Knockout Mouse"

Published on Nov 2, 2019 Alfonse

"Yamaha Portasound PSS-140 FM keyboard (1988)

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the PSS-140; some were run through the very synth-friendly Yamaha SDS CH-10MII chorus pedal. All parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, delay and reverb were added as required. Individual drum hits were sampled from the drum pads and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the PSS-140 itself.

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from retro classic keyboards together with current production tools. The PSS-140 has a 2 operator FM synth on board with some interesting and unusual sounds.

Flight of Harmony Sound of Shadows Kit Prototype Demo

Published on Nov 1, 2019 flightofharmony

Sound of Shadows

"While testing a final prototype of the upcoming Sound of Shadows eurorack module Kit I found some really good examples of what the SoS can do, so I grabbed my phone and recorded a few minutes.

Input is a ±5Vp-p (ish) triangle wave from my ancient Function Generator. The frequency is swept by the FG's internal ramp oscillator.
Output goes directly to studio monitors.
The blue CV input cable is from the aforementioned ramp oscillator in the FG.
Audio and video captured by my ancient Samsung Note 3.
No other equipment involved.

Apologies for the shaky video and general haphazardness, this was spur-of-the-moment.

The SoS is *not* a clean delay; that's not the point. : )"
