"Found this one lying around from October. My apologies for the orchestral hits!"


Published on Dec 7, 2019 LESINDES

"This is another episode of PURE ANALOG here with DREADBOX NYX. The synths here being played without FX = PURE ANALOG which 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, saturation 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!!!"

Exploring The Baal 3080 VCF

Published on Dec 7, 2019 John L Rice

"The Baal 3080 VCF

0:00 - Beginning/Title Card
0:22 - Control Locations
1:10 - Waveform And Noise Testing (Dry, No Resonance)
3:10 - Noise With Resonance (volume warning!)
4:18 - Bandpass Tests
6:07 - Tracking Test
6:43 - Patch Test With Rhythmic Modulation
8:54 - Party At Baal's Place
11:22 - End

Most of the gear used is explained throughout the video but since the special music video Party At Baal's Place is more involved, here are some details:
The same patch that was at the soundtrack for the introduction of this demo is the same one that plays throughout the Party At Baal's Place music video. I used a Moon Modular 569 sequencer to control the MOTM-300 VCO pitch and to also control Baal's frequency cutoff, in addition to manually playing with the frequency cutoff and resonance knobs. Strymon Timeline and BigSky pedals were used as well as a Lexicon MX-400, all for reverb and delay.

Things were very simple, just what you hear on the introduction, until I thought, "hey, I could put a drum beat to this" . . . and from that point on it was days of "just one more quick little addition?"! (insert emoticons of a face-plant and burning banana! ;-) And there was no initial click track so . . . . .

All the drum-set parts come from a Roland Integra7 played from a A-49 keyboard, because it was the middle of the night and I wasn't setup to record acoustic drums anyways. The china/trash ride cymbal was recorded first, then the snare and bass drums in another pass, and crash/splash cymbals were added on a third pass. I dropped those into tracks and spent days cursing my sloppiness as I kept trying to tweak the timings. Some of the fills were actually created in the DAW by chopping up simpler parts and recombining them.

Next I started coming up with the lead/melody synth parts. The patch was almost all Synth Tech MOTM modules except for a Moon 526 mixer the Baal 3080 VCF of course. (2 x MOTM-300 VCOs, OTM-800 EG, MOTM-1800 EG, MOTM-190 VCA, MOTM-380 LFO, MOTM-650 MIDI to CV) I'm proud to say I played all of those parts by hand, even the fast parts, but it did take a lot of practice. The next day I started wishing I had used some distortion so I replayed it again through a Retro Mechanical Labs Electron Fuzz pedal and JHS Firefly fuzz pedal in series.

The rest of the parts were quick and easy. The choir voices are from a Mellotron M4000D rack (male chorus and boys choir combined). The chime is an actual acoustic Musser brand chime just recorded with a handheld flash recorder. And that's my voice at the very end. ;-)

Then came the video editing. I spent a while searching for clips that might go well and I eventually developed a sort of "midnight party at Baal's place" sort of story for fun. ;-)

OK, thanks for watching, ratings, commenting and for reading this long description! If you've found this and/or my other videos useful or entertaining, please consider tipping me a few bucks?"

"At its core, this is the CA3080 OTA based filter that was in the Original Rev-A version of the Octave Cat, before they switched to The SSM2040. It has been adjusted for modular level. The expo-Converter uses super-matched 3906’s and is temperature Compensated For upwards of 5-octave tracking.

Additionally, there is a 4-pole output, as well as a 1-pole output. These outputs are inverted from each other, so they can be mixed Together for Bandpass.

Yamaha FS1R - FM Formant Synth SN PM01282

via this auction

"In 1998, after several years without producing a single FM synthesizer, Yamaha released a new FM powerhouse...the FS1R. This little beast is far from your average FM synthesizer. Not only is it an eight-Operator variant, as opposed to the six- and four-Operator FM of the DX/TX lines, but it also features a new technology called Formant Shaping Synthesis. Formants are the spectral patterns making up the sounds of human speech. This allows for the creation of vocal like timbres but can also be applied in many different ways to create incredibly unique sounds that you won't find on any other synths.

DX7 aficionados will like the fact that the FS1R has almost complete compatibility with 6-Operator FM synths: you can send, via MIDI, a patch from a DX7, for example, and the FS1R will convert it to an identical-sounding patch in the new synth. A lot of the preset Voices actually come from the DX7's library. It's also possible to program sounds from DX7 sound charts, finding an algorithm that has an equivalent layout to the DX algorithm and turning off the unwanted Operators.

The downside to the FS1R is the complexity of the user interface. With a tiny LCD screen and hundreds if not thousands of menus and sub-menus, editing from the front panel is tedious and nearly impossible. Thankfully, there are now software editors available for both the Mac and PC platforms to make the process quite a bit easier (though still not perfect). All that said, the complexity of working with the synth is far outweighed by the amazing sounds that it's capable of. It truly sounds like nothing else out there. From huge evolving pads, to shimmering EPs, fantastic organs, screaming leads and booming basses.. this synth can sound industrial and cold one minute, and then warm and almost analogue the next. With some time dedicated to learning how to edit the patches, or create your own from scratch, there's really no sound that this synth isn't capable of making."

Roland JX-3P Polyphonic Vintage 1980s Analog Synthesizer with Hard Road Case SN 357647

via this auction

"In overall very good cosmetic condition. Aside from a small paint chip next to the Memory buttons on the front, this synth is in NICE shape. Keys are white and not yellowed, with no cracks or chips. Minor scratches abound, but not many. ALL original buttons, knobs, sliders, jacks etc. are present and working. Power cable is firmly attached and original (and in nice shape)."

Kimball Challenger vintage analog keyboard/drum machine

You can find a demo of one previously posted here.

"Here's a rare vintage keyboard/synth/drum machine/noise machine/chord arranger from the 1980s that looks as rad as it sounds! This machine will nail that Beach House/"chill wave" sound, has a great organ and celeste sound, a flute patch that's not far off from a Mellotron as well some great weird synth-y tones, hilarious sound effects, great drum patterns with a fill button that adds nice variation and more. If you're looking for some serious vintage vibe to add to your studio and performances you just found it."

EML Poly Box black

via this auction

You can find a demo of an orange one previously posted here.

"Ultra rare EML Polybox (or EML Poly-Box). Only 130 untis were made. It makes chords from your mono sound.

Let me quote vintage synth explorer that quotes EML manual: 'Poly-Box takes a single pitch from your synthesizer and creates two banks of pitch sources. Each pitch bank contains 13 simultaneously available pitch sources at precise semitone intervals - covering an entire chromatic octave. The pitch banks may be in the same or different octaves, and can cover the range from one above to three octaves below the synthesizer oscillator.'

It has been professionally serviced and cleaned by my great synth repair man. One note C is not operating, beсause of the divider that is not working correctly (it can be purchase as a replacement from a company in UK for 50-60$). We couldn't deliver the parts to Russia, because of the royal mail failure, so we left it as it is, with, 98% restored besides this chip."
