Roland JUPITER-Xm - (Firmware Ver.1.03) - Outdoor DEMO "Warmin' up"

Published on Nov 28, 2019 gattobus

"The new Roland JUPITER-Xm (FW ver.1.03) has an internal sensor measuring the temperature of the internal circuitry, simulating the oscillators drift like real analog synthesizers. It takes less than 10 minutes tu fully warm up... The result is an alive, warm and three-dimensional sound.
You can also adjust the temperature manually, change the warm up time. and keep your favourite initial temperature if you set the aging parameter to 'FIXED'.

This performance was played in real time and recorded outdoor.
Jupiter-Xm (battery operated) recorded straight to Roland R-07 digital pocket recorder.

I used 5 parts in total: a JUNO-106 emulation, two JUPITER-8 parts, an SH-101 and a Drum Part.
Everything from this little beast...
I think, from now on, Jupiter-Xm is my favourite Synthesizer!!! :D"

OP-1 synth track expanded in Ableton with UVI and Samples From Mars

Published on Nov 28, 2019 Synth & Sundry

"A few weeks ago, I made a track with the OP-1 (OP-1 synth sounds and initial track idea with cats is the first part of this adventure). This video shows what happens after pulling the OP-1 track stems into Ableton Live and then reinforcing the composition with sounds from the UVI Digital Synsations collection which captures the spirit of the late 80s/early 90s Rompler synths from the likes of Roland, Kawai, and Ensoniq. There are also sounds from the always excellent Samples From Mars.

The first half of the video looks at the sounds I added to the arrangement with Ableton Live and the second half is a music video with the finished track.

Note: I am not sponsored or supported by these brands. All instruments were bought or downloaded using my own funds or on my own initiative. All opinions are my own.

The footage from the music video comes from the alien planet simulator, Inside The Void:

Roland JV1080 vs XV-5080 - Direct Comparsion

Published on Nov 28, 2019 LFOstore

"Long time descussion & question: how this two modules sounds & is there any difference in sounds?

We are using our 'Planet XV' soundset for this demonstration:

Use headphones to hear difference.

Spoiler: due to modern convertors of XV it sound less low and much more in mid-hi spectre.

JV sounds more vintage & gritty with more low and less mid/hi."

The super cool Korg Synthe-Bass from 1975!

Published on Nov 28, 2019 Alex Ball

"A Korg Synthe-Bass (aka SB-100) from 1975 stopped by for a quick demo. In this video I walk through what it does and then make a short track with it at the end.

The Synthe-Bass was used most famously by Dave Ball from Soft Cell and Röyksopp used it too, but it's generally not that well known and there's not many videos about it on YouTube, so hopefully this goes some way towards rectifying that as I think it's fantastic.

Thanks for watching."

Novation A Station

via this auction

"A-Station is a powerful analog modeling synthesizer based on the SuperNova. It has 8 voice polyphony with 3 oscillators per voice. There a built in staple effects like reverb, delay, and chorus plus a 12 band vocoder. While only taking up a single rack space, there is surprisingly a lot of hands on control from the front panel!"


via this auction

"This Synthi AKS was meticulously rebuilt, cleaned and tested by skilled vintage synth tech and dealer and working perfectly. This one's serial number 472x.ks. It’s one of the more desirable older white faced units and the front panels are beautiful. We bought this unit from its original owner. Note the chipped area in the suitcase near the handle. This does not effect function in any way. The exceptional condition of this piece along with the investment we made to fully overhaul it so it's better than the rest is of course factored into its price."

You can find a demo of the ELEKTRONIKA EM 04 here.

"Elektronika EM-04. There is a one master oscillator in the instrument. Due to this oscillator a possibility of instrument's detuning in the process of operation is eliminated. This generator shifts a pitch of the instrument on an octave, "slalom-effect" and refines the tuning +/- 1/4. Because of split of the manual into 2 sections, the volume of each part may be adjusted.


— Total audible range - 7 1/12 octaves
— Keyboard's volume - 4 1/12 octaves
— Mains voltage - 220V +/-10%
— Dimensions - 790x490x155 cm
— Dimensions, 890x355x102 mm (31" x 19" x 4")
— Weight, 20 kg (approx. 44 Pounds)

The unit is in excellent condition both cosmetically and functionally.
ELEKTRONIKA EM-04 has a really interesting PURE UNIQUE ANALOG sound."

Kawai K3 Digital Analog Hybrid Synth

via this auction, also on Reverb

Note the K3 is not really a wavetable synth per the listing. It has static digital waveforms you can pick from, vs a wavetable of waveforms you can morph through in real time. If the K3 is a wavetable synth then so are PCM sample based synths. That said, I owned one and it is a great sounding synth. The SSM analog filters open up the sound and you can get those classic PPG bell like tones. It also has user additive waveform slots. It is an underrated synth imo.

"It has 32 waveforms, some of which are samples of acoustic instruments like piano and percussion as well as some unique waveforms. By combining two of these waveforms you can create unique new sounds or add a twist to a traditional sound. Since there are only 32 of these waveforms, the K3 also features a programmable digital waveform where you can tweak the harmonic content of a waveform allowing for added flexibility and range of sounds.

What's really neat about the K3 is that (unlike the K1) it has analog filters and envelopes! So although the sound may be digital at first, it sure does get warmed going through the filter. The low pass resonant filter even has its own envelope generator. There's also a high pass filter and a highly flexible LFO. The K3 is an interesting synth, nicely bridging the gap between the analog and digital domain of vintage synthesizers.

* The Kawai K3 is a very professional hybrid synthesizer. It’s a mix of digital oscillators, additive/substractive synthesis and analog filters

* VCF and VCA give the sound a lot of depth and warmth

* The wavetable oscillators, on the other hand, can easily produce sounds similar to a PPG Wave synthesizer

* The Kawai K3 is a very good background synthesizer, thanks to the soft character of its sound. No wonder it gets along so well with digital and analog instruments in a mix. It leans more toward PPG-like bells and pads than toward classic Oberheim/Sequential-like brass sounds. It’s perfect for dreamy, softly evolving arpeggio sounds and for cool drawn-in-delay electronic patterns

* The OSC BAL(ance) function is very professional. This parameter determines the mixing balance for the two ocillators. “-15” is oscillator No.1 only, “0” is even, and “15” is oscillator No.2 only. PRES(sure) OSC BAL(ance) is even more effective, allowing for modulation of the mixing balance between the oscillators via aftertouch. This results in organic, evolving sound clips.

* Keyboard-tracking of VCF and VCA is very flexible, too. Settings may be positive or negative, making the keyboard an important and expressive tool"

ADDAC215 Dual S&H+ Sample Rate Reducer

Published on Nov 28, 2019 ADDAC System

"This new module should not be judged by it’s size, at 6hp it’s packed with features.

At it’s core it features a noise source and two precision Sample & Holds with 0.01% of maximum deviation from the Input which allows for quantized signals to be sent through without any noticeable detuning or the typical voltage drops over time.

The Sample & Hold sections can also be used as a Track & Hold meaning it holds the incoming input while the Trigger input is ON and lets the input flow to the output when the Trigger input is OFF.
Each section also features it’s own slew processor with a single control over attack and decay and an ON/OFF switch.

The noise signal is normalled to both sections inputs, meaning that without a jack plugged into the Input the sample and hold function will act upon the incoming noise signal generating random CV values.

The [Trigger A Alternate] switch allows to Link both sections so that any trigger input in Trigger A will alternate between triggering the A and B section.

Besides each section outputs there’s also 4 extra outputs: Noise, Difference, Average and Sum. The [Noise] output is coming from the noise source, the [Difference] output is the subtraction of section A minus section B, the [Average] output is the sum of both A plus B and then divided by 2 and finally the [Sum] output is the sum of both A plus B sections.

This module will also be available as a full DIY kit."
