Opal | Novation Summit Ambient

Published on Nov 16, 2019 r beny

"Another piece with the Novation Summit. This time using Squarp Hermod (in the background) to sequence one of the multi-patches, while I play/improvise under it.

I believe some of my Summit multi-patches are included amongst the factory patches on the synth (which I heard is shipping now), but they are also up on the components site.

Slowly getting my new studio up and running."

Vtg Casio SZ-1 Midi Sequencer Very Rare

via this auction

This is the first post to feature an SZ-1 in the flesh. The only other post on the site to feature an SZ-1 is this one featuring a German ad.

Update via Florian in the comments: "The description says 'The unit powers up using batteries but is stuck in the Tempo function. No other buttons work.'. If you look at the rear panel picture, you see, that the clock switch is set to "ext". So this thing works assumingly."

Technics SX-K200 keyboard demo - "Motion Capture"

Published on Nov 16, 2019 Alfonse

"Technics SX-K200 keyboard (1982)

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the SX-K200; some were run through a Boss DD7 delay pedal. All parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, and reverb were added as required. I also quadruple-tracked the lead synth melody (with two layers of "Cosmic Wah" an octave apart and two layers of "Brass" at the lower octave, which I detuned slightly in the DAW to give it a fatter sound). Individual drum hits were sampled from slowed-down rhythms and processed to allow a fresh kick and snare pattern to be built, although the basis of the groove was the "Disco" rhythm on the keyboard (with a high-pass filter applied so that the hi-hats are mainly all you hear).

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from ageing home keyboards together with current production tools. The SX-K200 was an evolution of Technics' electronic organs, which they had been building and developing since the '60s; its sounds are split into 8 "orchestral" polyphonic presets and 6 "solo" monophonic voices, with nods to various staple synth sounds of the era. There is also a great stereo chorus effect that can be applied to the orchestral sounds.

GHOSTINMPC Custom Black & Orange/Red Roland TB-303 Devil Fish Mods Ver 2.0

This one spotted and sent in by M Me, via this auction

"Devil Fish remodeled model of the world-famous TB-303 that produced many famous songs!
Fine adjustment of the filter is possible, and it is possible to make a more radical sound than the original, including overdrive.

In addition, this Devil Fish, GHOSTINMPC is custom painted!
Of course there is only one in the world.

* There is some distortion in the main body, and the foot on the right front side is floating about 1mm."

Check out more GHOSTINMPC custom designs here. I created a new label for them moving forward.

Arturia MatrixBrute

via this auction

Hi there and thanks for looking! I'm selling my fabulous ARTURIA MatrixBrute because I'm getting back into modular and the MB doesn't really fit my sound design style. If you're looking at this listing, you already know it's an amazing performance synth with patch-ability to the max!

MatrixBrute has been lovingly cared for in a smoke, kid, and pet-free home, and will ship to your home in its original box and sturdy packaging, along with the original instruction booklet, and 120v power cord.

This is a USED instrument in very good condition. No internal/sound issues. It has few small dings in the wood side pieces, and a fairly long scratch in the wood above the keyboard (see photos). All of these blemishes are tough to see, and of course none of them affect operation or performance, but they are there, and I need to point them out. LOOK AT THE PICTURES."

VAX singing compilation

"In action: VAX the DECtalk speech engine for EMY in singing mode, reading song files from the SD card.

These files are just text files with phonemes duration and pitch. Many songs are lying around on the web. Check for 'DECtalk' singing or Moonbase Alpha songs...

Can you recognize them?"

Funny, almost thought someone was singing through the system. You can find more posts featuring the Polaxis EMY here.
