Erica Synths Pico System III Semi-Modular Analog Synth With Preset Cards

Published on Nov 4, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"Erica's Pico System III is a full West Coast synth in a tiny format. Available in both desktop and Eurorack formats, the Pico System III uses a workflow inspired by the Buchla Music Easel—but adds a distinct, edgy character that takes it into entirely new territory.

With deep FM, two lowpass gates, looping envelopes, and loads of modulation options, the Pico System III is easily capable of generative soundscapes, but the addition of PWM, resonant filters, and an extra LFO make it easy to create even more conventional synth sounds with astonishing depth.

Like the Music Easel, the Pico System III can use preset cards to store patch "presets"—in this case, allowing you to save entire patch routings on physical program cards. The system comes with several preset cards and DIY cards so that you can create your own presets."

via this auction

"A true analog filter module which can be used with any line input. It has 42 genuine analog filters with Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, and Notch filter types. It has the ability to modulate as well and the speed of the Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) is controlled by the “Rate” knob. It consists of a MONO filter section and STEREO filter section which you can control completely separately. The sound quality is amazing and quite colorful. The MFC42 can also sync up to an MPC’s MIDI clock."

Sequential Prophet 2002 Plus (Expanded Memory, 8 Outs, etc)

via this auction

"This listing is for one Sequential Prophet 2002 Plus analog/digital sampler. It has maxed out memory and the 8 output expansion, making it the peak of the Prophet 2000 line of samplers. The power supply and voice cards have been recapped and the sampler is working quite well, although the floppy drive is a bit unreliable (I recommend replacing it with a HXC floppy drive emulator). Fortunately you do not the floppy to boot up and use this sampler, unlike many other vintage samplers. Includes power cable."

Published on Nov 4, 2019 LESINDES

"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!!!"

Select Bus Breakout/Storage/Test Module

Published on Nov 4, 2019 freshnelly

"The mystery continues!! The very useful Select Bus or modular MIDI CV line bus has a lack of masters so I decided to make a module while waiting for the PCB's for the Melisma & Sequarallel to get here (which will both have Select Bus features).

Not sure about the zoom feature. I saw it work somewhere but now can't find that video and thought there was a certain MIDI message for that but can't find that either. Basically I'm calling out for help on zoom!
I'm going to drop it into the demo rack soon enough so will video findings then."

FSR 1U - Force Sense Resistor

Published on Nov 4, 2019 Intellijel

"The Intellijel FSR, or Force Sense Resistor, is an expressive touch pad that can be used to control your patches in a number of ways. It offers a CV output that responds to changes in pressure on the pad by outputting up to five volts, along with a gate output that holds open as long as the pad is touched. You can either press the pad to modulate elements in your patches, or tap it to trigger things. However you use it, it's sure to add a personal touch to your sound.

Published on Nov 4, 2019 Ask.Audio

Priced at 299 Euro.

"Here's a MIDI controller which looks different to almost every other one out there on the market, plus it has a joystick and some innovative features. What's not to like?"

Manages MIDI pitch and control change thru USB port.

Analog Soul
Generates analog CV, LFO, PITCH, GATE, TRIGGER.

Up to 10 presets programmable via web interface.

The front panel is dominated by the joystick lever, while the rear panel contains three input jacks (two for expression type pedals, one for sustain type pedals), three output stereo jacks (6 analog cv) and one usb type B socket.

Digital Side: Enjoy is a USB class compliant MIDI device. You can use it with your USB-MIDI host like Sipario or a PC, without the need of any driver. Once programmed you can use it stand alone and generate MIDI pitch and control change (expression, volume, filter cutoff, etc.) by moving the joystick or pedals.

Analog Soul: four of six analog outputs can generate cv, gate, pitch and trigger, two outputs can also generate lfo. All CV's can be modulated by joystick, pedals or from MIDI messages like control changes coming from USB port.

Web: To program the device just connect by browser to on the program section and set the parameters. There are ten memory locations, selectable by the web application, with which switch to various the configurations. It is also possible, using the button, to scroll through the first three presets without using the browser.
