Linn LinnDrum LM-2 recently serviced by Bruce Forat

via this auction

Note the seller is offering 10% off to MATRIXSYNTH readers. You can make an offer at the listing and let him know if you saw it here.

"This LinnDrumm has the Forat MIDI kit, ZIF Sockets for easy changing of EPROM's, BASS 2 EPROM and full set of extra slider caps.
Bruce Forat installed the MIDI Kit, replaced capacitors, repaired all mixer faders! If you know anything about the LinnDrum it is that the mixer has a tendency to breakdown over time. This one works and feels great!

The FACTORY patterns and song are also loaded into memory and I will provide an audio file so you can reload it. It also is running OS 3.1 and Bruce kindly showed me how to access a "secret" second bank of pattern memory and I will provide instructions on how to do that.

Owner Manual, Service Manual, MIDI Manual and Factory memory will be provided via email, USB thumb drive or SD card. Which ever you prefer.

The LinnDrum is a drum machine manufactured by Linn Electronics between 1982 and 1985. About 5,000 units were sold.

Its high-quality samples, flexibility and affordability made the LinnDrum popular. The LinnDrum was used on many recordings throughout the 1980s, including international hits such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax", a-Ha's "Take On Me", Harold Faltermeyer's "Axel F", Tears for Fears' "Shout", Deniece Williams's "Let's Hear it for the Boy", and Madonna's "Lucky Star".

The LinnDrum has fifteen 8-bit 28 kHz ~ 35 kHz digitally sampled drum sounds: bass drum, snare, side-stick snare, hi-hat, crash cymbal, ride cymbal, three tom-toms, cabasa, tambourine, high and low congas, cowbell, and hand-claps. It includes a sequencer for programming rhythm patterns, a built-in mixer and individual output jacks for each sound.

Service by Forat was completed on February 5, 2020."

dave smith instruments curtis filter exploration

Published on Feb 26, 2020 impurfekt

"please support the channel:

the curtis filter module from dave smith instruments is exactly what it says on the tin; an authentic curtis filter for eurorack. it has both -12db/oct and -24db/oct settings as well as a +6db boost and an internal vca. here i explore it using the mfb vco/dco oscillator.

having a mopho x4 in the studio (and absolutely loving it) i'm quite familiar with the curtis filter sound. this module doesn't disappoint. it's raw, dirty and loves to resonate. it can sound smooth with the right source as well. during this session i was surprised to find it reminding me of the korg ms-20. it definitely lands in similar territory. i'm looking forward to doing some dark sci-fi work with it.

patch notes:
mfb vco/dco thru dave smith instruments curtis filter thru walrus audio fathom x 2

Vult DSP Freak Manifold Lateralus Sequence

Published on Feb 26, 2020 Robert Shipe

"Vult DSP Freak Manifold Lateralus (Moog Ladder Filter digital model 6, 12, 8 and 24dB options). You can throw a lot of modulation at it. Sounds gnarly, behaves a bit differently than an analog filter too. MI Plaits tri/saw/square/sync sequenced by Arturia KeyStep/Mutable Yarns. Modulated by a Blue Lantern Digital ADSR and Phobos Lunar LFO. Quantized by o_C Meta-Q. When I have the time I'll try to do a short vid for each filter model. Like usual I decided it sounded neat so I recorded it spontaneously. Very fun, cool, inspired filter.

Six track FM based groovebox
Scale angles dense and jagged, glide over plains vast and fluid, or sink into mists of dissonance. To model is to shape the formless. Model:Cycles is a six track FM based groovebox that brings exploring into the heart of sound sculpting.

With six unique Machines in one lightweight unit you can effortlessly mold rhythm and melody across the digital spectrum using instant, tactile controls. Exploration made attainable.

Define the formless
The six Machines of the digital FM engine are unique to Model:Cycles, and cover both percussive and melodic synths, allowing you to make full, varied compositions. The four core Synth Controls put the tools of sound sculpting right in front of you, altering the behavior of each Machine differently and letting you push them to the limit. Every sound has a start, where will you take it?
Dedicated × 12
Dedicated knobs let you twist each Machine far and wide with wild, unexpected results waiting to be discovered. Use Control All to heave a parameter to the extreme and back again across every track. Elektron’s powerful sequencer gives you the freedom to record every move live or program the sounds and parameters of your composition one step at a time.
Light weight, heavy sound
Whether you use it as a versatile live instrument or groovebox on the go to pick up and craft full-blown compositions away from your studio, exploration has rarely felt so convenient and unimpeded.

1970's Wersi AP6

via this auction

"Seventies bass synthesizer in good working condition. the low C key sticks and the middle C & D work intermittently but otherwise all functions and keys operate as they should. Comes with lid.

From the web:

In 1977 German organ company released the two in one Bass Synthesizer AP-6. Its a bass syntheszer and a bass guitar synthesizer in one with a quarky glide setting named "Hawaii" which worked as a slide guitar function presumably to play Hawaiian style slide guitar riffs.

The robustly built instrument is monophonic with square, saw and sine waveforms. There are 5 organ stops for playing various octaves. 3 envelope generators are available with attack and decay for the sine waves and attack and decay for the filter envelope. The bass guitar section only has decay available as an envelope.

The filter section is a formant filter which acts like an autowah than a traditional analog filter. There are 2 LFO modulators available LFO 1 is a rotorary style effect and LFO 2 is vibrato effect with a normal and slow setting.

There are 2 slider performance controls, 22 buttons and 10 knobs available for creating and setting sounds. The unit features 37 keys and is built into it's own case with lid for transporting. The output section has two monophonic outputs for low and high impedance."
