Hammond 102100 Analog Synth

Published on Mar 19, 2020 hckocher

via this auction

"Up for bid is a Hammond 102100 Analog Synth. Every key works,every preset works. The volume,tuning and wind sliders work.

Of the 7 button banks, all of them work,electronically speaking, but Tone filters #1,2,5,6 and 7 have to be held down to engage. The springs are properly catching. The same is true of #1-7 of the “Filter rise& fall” speed section.

In total, 12 of the 49 buttons will not stay depressed on their own."

Vintage Serviced Oberheim OB-8 Synthesizer Keyboard w/MIDI

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Here's a freshly serviced Oberheim OB-8 that sounds awesome and is available at a great price! The OB-8 is the vintage Oberheim that people should get. All the kinks worked out from the OB-X and OB-Xa, but still that same killer sound! This one has what appears to be a vintage copy of the factory MIDI. Video coming later today.

The previous owner installed my Synthchaser Power Supply Rebuild kits and Ultimate Voice Board Service Kits, but couldn't get all the gremlins worked out of the synth. I acquired it, repaired any issues, and calibrated it to factory spec. I've also replaced the bushings on the keybed, and installed my OB-8 Battery Eliminator, which as the name implies, saves your presets without the need for batteries which would eventually run out. The synth is in reasonable condition, with some damage/cracking to the side panels, typical scratching and wear on the case, and the cap of the collet knob (not the knob itself) for the modulation rate pot on the bender assembly has been replaced with a 3D printed part. Hard to spot it, but I'm all about full disclosure.

Service included:

· All trimmers replaced with multi-turn trimmers and all trimmers calibrated.
· New control board to voice board ribbon cable
· New pot board connector cables
· Power supply rebuilt with Synthchaser power supply rebuild kit (new beefier bridge rectifiers, new filter capacitors)
· Synthchaser OB-8 Battery Eliminator installed - no need to replace the battery in this synth, ever!
· New key bushings (this is an early OB-8 with the Pratt Reed keybed and not the noisy Panasonic keybed)

Due to the current situation, I'm not doing local pickup, shipping within the US only. The synthesizer will be professionally packed by the UPS store and insured for the full purchase price. This is a vintage electronic item, so all sales are as-is and final. But visit the Synthchaser YouTube channel and rest assured that a high quality job was done on this synthesizer by the expert on Oberheim Synthesizers."

Vermona Perfourmer MKII

via this auction

"PERfourMER MKII consists of four full-fledged monophonic synthesizers (synth channels) that can be combined at will to create unusual or classic sounds.

The synthesizer channel
The analogue oscillator with five wave forms plus a noise generator builds the sound foundation that is then passed to the musical 24-dB-lowpass filter with adjustable resonance, followed by the discrete built VCA to shape its volume contour. Modulation sources are a flexible syncable LFO and the envelope generator with controls for Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release. Using these controls alone, you may effortlessly create a diversity of sounds of highest excellence. And in order to make this sonic journey as easy as possible, PERfourMER MKII offers individual controls for each function.

Combine to be different
PERfourMER MKII’s true potential lies within the combination of its multiple synthesizer channels. Whether you use reciprocal frequency modulation, synchronization, different PLAYMODES or, ideally, all of these functions combined. Possibilities are endless and it is you to decide to use PERfourMER MKII as a four voice synthesizer or as an orchestra of individual instruments."

New Q156 Comparator Module

Published on Mar 19, 2020 synthesizersdotcom


"The Q156 module combines a signal comparator, LFO, VCA and AC Mixer/Coupler in a single-wide module.
The Comparator section compares two signals and produces a gate output when the + signal is higher than the - signal. A single signal can also be compared to a fixed voltage set by the knob. Produce random gates, pulsing gates, convert audio into gates, create effects that apply to only a certain range of notes, and so much more.
The second section is an AC coupler and mixer. Remove DC voltage from a signal, convert gates from the comparator section or from the Q173 Gate Math module into audio, and mix signals.

The third section is a general purpose utility LFO. Triangle and square wave outputs are available. Patch the triangle wave into the comparator section to create PWM.

The bottom section is a simple VCA. Patch the LFO into the VCA to create tremolo, or use an envelope to create decaying vibrato - the possibilities are endless.

Official Music Video for the new cover version of Stardust by The Galaxy Electric
Video Created by Michelle Pan

This single was created in our signature Cosmic Tape Music style, utilizing electroacoustic techniques, Reel to Reel tape machine, and varispeed “tape tricks” for vocals and bass guitar to change timbre and original pitch. The use of electro-mechanical effects treatments like spring reverb and tape delay were implemented to add a touch of vintage spice.

The following gear was used to make this song:
TEAC A-3440 Reel to Reel tape machine
Buchla Music Easel
Mellotron M4000D mini
1979 Dual Algorithmic Oscillator
Crank Sturgeon Plug SP contact microphone
Knas Ekdahl Moisturizer Spring Reverb

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.
Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

"This demo is an attempt to capture the raw power and fatness of the Studio Electronics Midimini V30- High quality monitors or headphones are recommended. We do recommend hearing it 'in person' if at all possible. However if you can not, and are curious to know what the raw oscillators sound like- This video is for you

Starting with a single oscillator, various filter and resonance settings, and envelope settings. As the video progresses the sounds get a little more complex and wild. Enjoy!"

Quarantine - Justin Hurwitz - cover by Randy George - theremin

Published on Mar 19, 2020 Randy George

"Quarantine. Challenging times. I feel that performers have a responsibility to perform even if live in public is not an option. Music can help us navigate the haze of isolation and uncertainty.

Here is one of the rare works from a major motion picture score in the last few years that prominently features the theremin. Quarantine, composed by Justin Hurwitz, is a track from the film score to First Man, directed by Damien Chazelle, starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy.

In case you have been waiting for years to hear what progress I’ve made with the theremin… the wait is over. In upcoming videos I’ll have a lot more technology to share, but I’ll keep it simple for now with this theremin and modeled harp duet.

If you would like to learn more about how the music is the product of years of evolution, please subscribe. I will make an overview video or post it in an article soon.

List of hardware used in the performance and software used during production:

Moog Etherwave Pro (theremin)
Haken ContinuuMini (MPE synth)
Radial Pro D2 (passive DI box)
Presonus Studio 68c (audio interface)
Ableton Live 10 Suite (digital audio workstation)
Z Prism MIDI Merlin (real-time audio to MPE MIDI)
Modartt Pianoteq 6 Stage (modeled harp)
Polyverse Comet (very nice reverb)"
