Retro Synthesizer Music -- Saltfjellet ( long version)

Published on Nov 30, 2019 KWILLU

Lots of Korg Trident in this one.

"Here is the long version of the melody Saltfellet. The music was made for the Nordlandsbanen minute by minute. The original made then was only at 2:30 min. Had a very short deadline therefore became very short.
so after several years I decided to make long versions.

The Nordlandsbanen minute by minute is a television program that was first broadcast on NRK2 on Saturday, December 29, 2012. The program was watched by over one million and was considered a great success for NRK. [1]

The program lasts for 9 hours and 50 minutes and follows the day train from Trondheim to Bodø minute by minute through four seasons. This is unlike the minute by minute Hurtigruten not a direct broadcast, but in return, a total of 4 recordings - one for each season. During the broadcast, the various recordings are alternated, so you can see the whole stretch how it was in the different seasons.

The reason for the program being produced is that it is 50 years since the Nordlandsbanen was completed until Bodø."

New ADDAC603 VC Triple Bandpass Filter

Published on Nov 30, 2019 ADDAC System

"Here's the Overview video for ADDAC603 VC Triple Bandpass Filter

At ADDAC we’ve been in love with Bandpass Filters for a long time! We use them in several different ways but mostly as dynamic equalisers at the end of an audio chain for ever-changing timbral qualities with slow modulations on frequency and volume. Slightly or drastically changing the character of the incoming sound just by controlling a few parameters and adjusting the modulation speed. And while this method is a personal preference of ours while developing such module we soon realised that some features would give it other aural qualities and so we started by adding a dedicated feedback control so that each filter could self-oscillate while making this control independent from the Bandwidth control. Also added an amplifier x3 or x100 at each of the inputs in order to create soft or hard distortions turning it into a controllable 3 band distortion!

3 independent Bandpass filters each with:
Input gain up to x3 or x100 via a switch
VC Frequency with attenuverter
VC Bandwidth with attenuverter
6 or 12db (1 or 2 poles) Switch
Individual output VC Amplifier with attenuverter
Phase output switch

3 bands summing mix plus Dry control with attenuverter

Inputs are Normalled: 1 to 2 to 3 allowing for the three bandpass filters to be used either for the same input source or from three independent sources.

Filters and VCA’s developed with the modern version of SSM2164 from CoolAudio for pristine sound quality.

Yamaha Portasound PSS-460 FM keyboard demo - "Night Vision"

Published on Nov 30, 2019 Alfonse

"Yamaha Portasound PSS-460 keyboard (1986)
All sounds you hear in the track were made using the PSS-460; some were run through delay pedals (the Vestax DDX vintage digital delay and the more recent Boss DD7). All parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, and reverb were added as required. I also double-tracked the lead synth part (each part tuned fractionally differently) to give it a fatter sound. Individual drum hits were sampled from slowed-down rhythms and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the PSS-460 itself.

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from ageing home keyboards together with current production tools. The 460 was one of a few of Yamaha's PSS range to use the same YM3812 sound-generating chip used in the Soundblaster soundcards of the late 80s/90s.

Synth settings are editable via the sliders on the top right of the control panel. If you have one of these keyboards and want to recreate the sounds, here are the parameters:

Bluesynth (edited): 2 5 1 1 3 3
Synth 1: 2 3 5 4 5 3
Vibes (edited): 5 5 5 5 3 3
Synth 2 (bell): 3 5 3 1 3 3

CRUMAR BIT99 | Analog Synthesizer 1985 | HD DEMO

Published on Nov 29, 2019 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2019 by AnalogAudio1

Synthesizer demo of the analog synthesizer Crumar Bit99 from 1985.

For reverb effects, a Lexicon MPX 500 was used, along with a Korg SDD-3000 for delay effects. The sounds were programmed by me.

The Bit99 is a nice fully programmable polysynth with warm analog sounds made in Italy. It has been developed by Mario Maggi, the developer of the Elka Synthex! It has a velocity sensitive keyboard and MIDI. 2 DCOs, 2 LFOs, 24dB lowpass filters, 2 ADSR envelopes, noise, make many different sounds possible."

"This is a demonstration of the sounds that can be made through the use of the VOX Octavoice I. I believe it was made in 1968 and is very rare. For more info"

Note this is the first one to be featured on MATRIXSYNTH. Hadn't seen one before now. Spotted it in the listing below and found the video above.
