In-Depth with a Vintage ARP 2600 Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer

Published on Jan 3, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"In this video, we provide a functional walkthrough of the iconic ARP 2600, complete with patch examples and a blow-by-blow walkthrough of the panel. To read more about ARP's history and the 2600, check out our Signal article here:

The 2600 is one of the first semi-modular synthesizers, which means it provided musicians considerably greater ease of use than with the prior gargantuan modular systems, all without sacrificing any sonic potential. Used by musicians such as Stevie Wonder, Edgar Winter, Joe Zawinul, and even used to create the voice of R2-D2 in Star Wars, the 2600 has permeated popular culture with its bubbling sound effects, soaring leads, and thumpy, huge bass lines.

ARP 2600 + 3620 available here:

Moog One Firmware Update 1.2.0: Best Feature - Active Voice Indicator

Published on Jan 3, 2020 Getsemani Music

"Moog One firmware update 1.2.0 which was released just before Christmas (2019) included 14 fixes and 5 new features, as well as 45 new patches included with the download. Today we look at what might be the best new feature, the "Active Voice Indicator" which may finally help you answer the question "Is eight voices enough?" We found it could also serve as a diagnostic tool to help identify which oscillator might be misbehaving if you are having an issue. Check it out. It may be the most revealing 4 1/2 minutes of your day."

TRAILER /// Electromotive: The Story of ARP Instruments

Published on Jan 3, 2020 Alex Ball

"In 1969 Alan Robert Pearlman founded Tonus Inc with goal of building a synthesizer.

From a small building Kenneth Street, Newton Highlands, Massachusetts a handful of engineers designed the ARP Electronic Music Synthesizer and unveiled it the world in 1970.

Over the next decade their synthesizers were immortalised in the music of many of the greatest artists, film composers and sound designers of the 1970s and played a significant part in defining the sound of the era.

Whilst the company closed its doors in 1981, their mark was permanent and the story was far from over.

Featuring never-before-seen interviews with the pioneers who did it, along with demonstrations of all of their iconic creations; this is Electromotive: The Story of ARP Instruments.

Coming 2020."

Behringer TD-3 vs Blofeld // "Acid Chess"

Published on Dec 29, 2019 Acid Zoo

"My second track with the Behringer TD-3.
This time in combination with the Waldorf Blofeld.

The drum and bell sounds are coming from the Blofeld and were sequenced with an Arturia Beatstep Pro.
I also utilized the internal TD-3 distortion unit this time. Most people don't like it, but you can find some sweet spots there.

Additional sound effects were created with Zebra (!) by u-he.
The Acid Zoo Zebra got a bit jealous, but anyway..."

The Controller Duel | PG-800 Vs. MPG-8 | Roland JX-8P/MKS-70/SuperJX

Published on Jan 3, 2020 Espen Kraft

"If you're looking for a controller for the Roland JX-8P/MKS-70/JX-10 you have many options.
The classic original controller, the PG-800 is great if you're a collector mostly concerned about the authenticity of your collection. The original controller works very well IF the faders are still working ok.
The MPG-8 from Retroaktiv is great if you want a new controller that has some extra features, is small and ready for the Vecoven mods for these synths.

Check it out here:

The opening music is called "We Can Do It" and is mostly made with a actual Roland JX-8P. The song can be found here:"

Synthtech E520 Hyperion Processor with GUITAR | Moot Booxle Sound Demo | No Talking

Published on Jan 3, 2020 mootbooxle

"Moot Booxle demonstrates the #SynthesisTechnology #E520 processor with an electric guitar. No other effects have been used, except a stereo cabinet simulator via IK AmpliTube 3. I wanted to have a bit more typical electric guitar sound than just a DI sound.

So the signal path is Peavey Strat w/ EMG pickups ; Mono input of E520 ; ART TPS II tube preamp ; Tascam DM-4800 console ; Logic Pro X ; AmpliTube 3 ; Limiter.

Check out the E520 at"
