Gershon Kingsley demonstrates a Moog Synthesizer on Aug. 25, 1969.

via Billboard where you'll find the full article:

"Composer, conductor and electronic music pioneer Gershon Kingsley, who wrote the top 10 hit “Popcorn” and played a pivotal role in popularizing the synthesizer sound, died Dec. 10 in New York. He was 97.

The Emmy Award-winning composer recorded 'Popcorn' in 1969, but it was a remake by Hot Butter that reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1972, and No. 1 in at least six other countries. In 2005, Crazy Frog released its version, with the song again going to No. 1 in a number of countries. In 2018, Kingsley released a yellow vinyl 12” of his trademark song for Record Store Day.

Kingsley, who also composed 'Baroque Hoedown,' the theme song for Disney parks’ Main Street Electrical Parade, was born in Germany in 1922. He came to New York in 1946 and then attended the LA Conservatory of Music..."

You can find previous posts featuring Gershon Kingsley here. One of my favorites growing up in Los Angeles and going to Disneyland as a kid (as well as an adult during NAMM :), was Baroque Hoedown with Jean-Jacques Perrey.

Thank you for the memories Gershon Kingsley, they literally lasted a lifetime. You made the world a better place for so many.

MAM Music and More MB33II SN B443100030

via this auction

"MAM MB33II analog bass synth. It's a German made TB-303 clone, which means it's circuit path was reverse engineered from the Roland TB-303. It's audio circuit is %100 analog but along with accepting MIDI notes it also transmits and accepts MIDI CC's from it's cutoff, resonance, env. mod, accent, decay and distortion controls. That means that these parameters can be controlled via envelopes in Ableton live so you can sequence multiple knob movements making the tweaking possibilities endless. The unit has been tested and is fully functional. Comes with power supply, manual and original paperwork."

Synthesis Technology E520 *prototype* // Tape style SOS loops, spectral weirdness, new FX + more!

Premiered Dec 12, 2019 DivKidVideo

Note the Kickstarter campaign ends tomorrow, Sunday, Dec 15.

"Here’s the second video with the already lovely sounding E520 big exposed prototype from Synthesis Technology. This will be a Eurorack module for it’s release next year but this is just the development prototype. In this video we explore some other FX, some updates to things we’ve already seen and bathe in not only a lovely shimmer bath … but some gorgeous tape style degradation loops that deteriorate with feedback, warble, saturation and filtering like real tape based sound on sound looping. Heck, I even broke out the Telecaster for a change. Skip around, any questions just ask, if you go back this be sure to get your ideas heard and give feedback to shape the product on Kickstarter and as always I’ll see you next time. Ba-bye.

DX5 playing New Order "Blue Monday" (Wonder Woman 84 arrangement version)

Premieres Dec 14, 2019 DX5

"** At 03:50 starts the movie OST arrangement **.
I was up to revisite this instrumental cover I've already made twice in the past. As I liked the arrangements for the upcoming Wonder Woman 84 movie OST (Hans Zimmer me thinks?), I decided to play New Order's 'Blue Monday' again, building a backtrack more faithful to the studio version in combination with some of the OST arrangements. [previous versions here]

Gear used:
Roland MRS-2 Promars
Emu Emax II (massively)
Kurzweil PC1x (With its mighty strings)
Roland JP8000.

No sample from the original song were used. (Just Kraftwerk's 'Uranium' choir).
Backtrack previously recorded on Pro Tools. Lead sound: Roland JP8000.
Original song composed by Gillian Gilbert, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Bernard Sumner.
Wonder Woman 84 arrangements: Hans Zimmer
Performed here by DX5 Jose Maria Bara."

Novation Spotlight: GLXY

via Novation where you'll find the full interview.

"Straight after their show at our Novation London Pop-up Store, we got a chance to ask UK drum & bass duo GLXY a few questions about their inspirations, where their musical journeys began, and find out some more about the album the pair have spent 2019 working on.

GLXY are creating a real buzz with their soul-drenched style of production. Having signed to UK drum & bass label Shogun Audio back in 2017, their single ‘Lucid’ grabbed the attention of BBC Radio 1 legend Annie Mac after receiving its radio premiere from Rene La Vice on the Drum and Bass show - he dubbed the track as a ‘baby maker’ which sums up the luscious inviting tones in their production. Following up on their first Shogun release, the duo have continued to deliver with ‘Vision EP’ and ‘Chiral EP’ both of which clearly document their richly melodic tones and ability to work alongside amazing vocalists such as DRS and Solah. Discover a little more about GLXY below."

Novation Bass Station II / Yamaha PSS-580 / PSS-460 / TC Electronic Alter Ego - From the Live Room 6

"Get the track here:

Live jam featuring Ian Bostic on drums and Alfonse on the Novation Bass Station ii, as well as the 1986 Yamaha PSS-460 and 1989 Yamaha PSS-580 FM mini-synths. The PSS-460 tracks were overdubbed later (the lead was double-tracked and slightly detuned to sound a little bigger), with effects provided by two TC Electronic pedals: Alter Ego delay on the Copycat and Specho settings and the Hall of Fame mini reverb.

"J-6 is Back" with Roland Jupiter 6, 8, Juno 60, 106, and TR-808

Published on Dec 14, 2019 Machiwoomiapoo

"Well, I managed to get half the studio together, so I decided to celebrate the return of the Jupiter 6 from the repair shop. First I programmed a drum pattern in the TR-808, then a BASS line with the Juno 106. Next, I used an Arp sound with the Juno 60, and added some support with the Jupiter 8. Finally, the Jupiter 6 is on Unison/Solo mode to shine during the solo. Let me know if you enjoy the tune. Please subscribe, share, and all that. Take care! Sam."

ARP Odyssey MKI 2800 Vintage Whiteface +CV/Gate Mods

via this auction

"Superb condition as seen -- some small scratches and wear on face, but still looking great for a 45+ year old instrument!

A true vintage piece, much better sound than any modern reissue as well as later vintage Odysseys (2810, 2823 etc.).

This one has been very well calibrated, no problems with sliders or keyboard unlike most you will find which need extensive work. Ready to play right now. An absolute joy to play!

Has CV/Gate board installed, which was not standard with these versions. So you get the best of both worlds, the controllability of later Odysseys and the superior sound of the Mk.I."

Analogue Systems EMS Synthi Filter Demo

Published on Dec 14, 2019 Roberto Raineri-Seith


A simple sequence of a single Depfer A-110-1 VCO with sawtooth waveform fed into the only officially licensed clone of the EMS filter built by Analogue Systems in collaboration with EMS.

Initially only the resonance is heard, then the VCO comes in, with on/offs of the soft/hard (fast/slew) slope with the filter set to 18db as in the original.

Delay is a TC Electronic D-TWO, reverb a Vermona DRS3 stereo spring reverb.

Recorded with a Tascam DA-3000 high-end digital recorder.

BTW this is also a demo of how one single VCO can sound unbelievable..."

Korg PSS-50/Poly-800 Demo Song (1984)

Published on Dec 14, 2019 jd wall

“The PSS-50 Programmable Super Section was released in 1984. Different chordal accompaniment patterns/sounds, bass lines, and drum patterns could be combined into custom machine-music combinations. In this lo-res video it’s providing the backup for a Poly-800 routed through some PME-40X effects. (The keyboard-guitar thing was definitely a phase, and the vibrations from Al Di Meola’s Tour-De-Force LP were still in the air.)

Metasonix 4u - RK7s + Serge V Slope Filter & +.

Published on Dec 14, 2019 FOR channel

"2 x dronning RK7s Tube Oscillators go to R*S Serge Variable Slope Filter inputs, the two RK7s outputs also go to the XFADER inputs, fade is controlled by a DUSG XL sometimes at audiorate sometimes slow. The output of the XFADE goes to The Slope Filter Frequency CV input. The other section of the DUSG XL controls the filter SLOPE INPUT. Both section of DUSG XL modulate each other. The GAtor´s TGO is the master clock , it sends divisions to control the LW Programmer , the DUSG XL and the new LW DUSG which is controlling a RK1 Noise+RK4 Filter+RK5 LPG Combination ( a stringy kind of sound that sometimes turns into a hat). Programmer sends control signals to everything. The patch plays by itself."

"The self developing drone continues. THE NEW LOUDESTWARNING DUSG HAS A CYCLE IN GATE INPUT THAT ENABLES CYCLE MODE , here i´m using that to add a bit of a finger banana playing. LW Programmer sends control signals to everything. The machine takes over again."

"Just playing with the patch. A bit of a battling close to the end. She screams but takes over the system in the end."
