Commodore 64 plays Huey Lewis (1985-86)

Published on Feb 9, 2020 Jma Mitch

"As a teenager in 1985 and 1986, I used my trusty Commodore 64 and the "Music Construction Set" program to create computer versions of a slew of songs by the greatest musical artist of all time: Huey Lewis and The News. Only Huey songs, that was the only artist I did. I recently (Feb 2020) was able to access my 35 year old C64 disks, many of which survived, including the ones with the songs I'm uploading to this channel. Some of the songs sound better than others, but these are the original unedited files."

"Introducing MICROCOSM, a new effects toolkit for adventurous musicians.

Microcosm rearranges and reinterprets your sound in new and exciting ways using a variety of granular sampling, delay, and looping techniques. Cascading microloops can be locked into tight tap-tempo synced rhythms, diffused into glacial ambient textures, woven into hypnotic drones, and much more.

Microcosm's 11 groundbreaking effects (with a total of 44 preset variations) allow you to slice, stretch, rearrange, and manipulate your playing in musical ways. Tweak the sound further using Microcosm's built-in pitch modulation, lush stereo reverb (with 4 selectable modes), and resonant lowpass filter.

When you’ve found a sound you like, the built-in stereo phrase looper can capture up to 60 seconds of your performance and even allows for layering phrases from different effects. All loops, overdubs, and settings can be saved and recalled later using the pedal’s 16 user presets."

Nord Modular G2 Keyboard and Voice Expansion SN MD10987 w/ Original Box

via this auction

"Clavia Nord Modular G2 keyboard synthesizer with an original voice expansion board installed. This is a powerful virtual analog synthesizer, a flexible performance instrument, a four channel effects platform and a complex modular synthesis platform capable of outputting 4 independent patches. There is nothing quite like it being produced at this time.

This hybrid hardware/software virtual analog modular synthesizer is in perfect working condition and excellent cosmetic condition having been owned by the seller for over a decade and gently used in a smoke free studio. The paint, panel and labels are clean and crisp, no dents, chips or scratches. All data encoders, LEDs, rotary LEDs, back-lights, and screens are working. All keys, knobs, switches, pitch stick and wheel are working. All outputs and inputs (audio/MIDI/data) are working. In short, everything is working.

The original packaging, manual, software CD and power cord are included. The legacy Mac/PC software is still available for download on the Nord website and is known compatible with Mac OS up to Mojave but will not run on the latest Mac OS Catalina as the software is not 64bit. I have no experiencing running the G2 Editor on Windows myself but I hear it still works."

Yamaha CS 60 + Sony HR-MP5: First Date

Published on Feb 19, 2020 Metralon

"Playing around with these 2 boxes, just having fun.

The CS60 went straight into the HR-MP5. You are listening to the output of the HR-MP5, recorded @ 48kHz 24bit through a RME Fireface 800 in Cubase, using a Waves L2 Maximizer to dither down to 16 bit. The Youtube audio compression algorithm tops it of (ugh). No processing, no eq or limiting; none of that. Just a plain and simple, direct recording of the HR-MP5.


00:00 PRESET: "005 PLATINUM XL" (?)
03:10 PRESET: "008 ARENA" (?)
03:39 And so it begins
04:56 A new dawn
05:46 Manu Monk
06:19 Stormy Island I
06:52 Stormy Island II - coconuts
07:29 In between battles
08:37 Enlightened Sphere I
09:15 Enlightened Sphere II - solo
11:04 Pulse incoming
12:12 It has a pulse
13:43 Disturbed and soaring
14:50 PRESET: "011 DARK N FULL" (?)
15:33 Troublesome, but thriving
16:10 Something's cooking
16:56 Serene & Short
17:07 Schizoid Sulfur
17:42 Now we're talking
19:27 Tiny Mouse in a CS house
23:10 .. the mouse tells his life's story .. there's a ship involved at some point ..
25:08 Cat's ahead!
26:31 PRESET: "027 MT PYRAMID?"
27:36 PRESET: "035 WOBBLE DLY"
28:12 Echoes of Dreamscape
30:05 Angels on Distortion
30:38 Bringing it down
31:05 Two-Face Theme

Some distortion occurred around 20 ~ 22 minutes. Not sure why; input levels on the metering function of the MP5 looked fine. I adjusted input levels on the interface's input, I dialed down the output level of the CS 60, and lowered input levels on the MP5. All was fine afterwards in terms of sound - although input level on the MP5's was pretty low at that point. The thing with the MP5 is: jacks are calibrated at -10dB; these are single ended, so unbalanced."

ARP Solina String Ensemble SN 0117685

via this auction

"Legendary 1970's ARP Solina String Ensemble Analog String Synthesizer in excellent condition.

Fully tested and inspected. Serviced. Working without issue. Full clean bill of health.

Very clean unit inside and out. Original Schematics and Replacement Fuses still in place, stapled to the interior rear wood panel, there since factory-new.

This is model Mk1.2, the most sought after of all revisions. This model having the Modulation button, and original Mono output. Not the later stereo version, whose sound suffers due to modifications to the original and very beautiful circuitry. And not the later model again which has LEDs on the buttons, again, a model with quite different sound than this original due to quite drastic alteration of interior circuitry. The first model has no Modulation button, instead having the modulation hardwired to 'on' setting. The option of switching on/off is quite great to have as the sound is much different in both cases, and very nice in each. The strong, sonorous tone of the strings with the Modulation not engaged, to the swirling, lush and rich string ensemble with the Modulation on.

230v Model. Note, power converter may be required for use in other regions than Europe /UK.

This is a genuinely magnificent example of the String Ensemble, always babied throughout its life, and sounding great as it should."

1970s Farfisa Syntorchestra Vintage Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction, also on Reverb

"1970s Farfisa Syntorchestra analog synthesizer in excellent condition and in perfect working order, fully serviced and ready to play. Produced in Italy from 1975 to 1978, the Syntorchestra is an incredibly rare synth that shares sonic similarities to the ARP Pro Soloist and Moog Satellite, but is a completely unique sounding tool in its own right. With a Polyphonic section and a Monophonic section, the Syntorchestra is a combination of two preset synthesizers in one, each with separate parameter controls and outputs.
