1973 Moog MiniMoog Model D SN 4101 w/ Hard Case

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Being perhaps the most popular version of one of the most iconic monophonic analog synth series of all time is no easy feat, but the Moog MiniMoog Model D manages to pull it off. As one of the first non-modular synthesizers, the MiniMoog Model D is highly intuitive and requires very little knowledge to use. The model D boasts contouring circuits and three separate, completely original oscillators, one of which can be used as an LFO. Although the Model D was reissued, the '70s MiniMoog Model D hasn't depreciated in value, desirability, or style.

I have tested this out at home and all keys, oscillators, knobs etc are in working order, and do sound great. The serial number is 4101. I am not a certified technician however and am not comfortable opening the case up or evaluating the circuitry. This is an as-is sale as I am also uncomfortable with risking any shipping damage. Please review my previous sales and feedback; all are perfect.

Appears to be an original case, or possibly a custom that was made in the 1970's The synth fits like a glove inside of it, and could benefit from new foam on the inside. top as shown. I would be happy to set up a video conference with you to demo any parameters and answer any other questions. Cheers!"

2 Eurorack Diode Filters Compared [Doepfer A-102 vs STG Sea Devils]

Published on Apr 7, 2020 poorness studios

"In this video I do a side-by-side comparison of the Doepfer A-102 LP Filter and the STG Soundlabs Sea Devils Filter. Both are diode-based low pass filters and both have various CV inputs. I've always been a big fan of diode filters, and I couldn't find many video demos... so I decided to do a video comparing these two. Both are really great filters."

Sheltering in Place 2: Sensel Morph and Modular Jam

Published on Apr 7, 2020 CatSynth TV

"We present another Sheltering in Place synth jam, this time featuring the Sensel Morph and our modular system, along with an assist from Big Merp.

The Sensel Morph maps to audio signals in Max/MSP/BEAP and connects to the modular via the Expert Sleepers ES-8. We use it to control the Sputnik Modular Dual Oscillator, Metasonix RK5 Low Pass Gate, and Rossum Electro-Music Morpheus.
Additional instruments/modules include the Arturia MicroFreak, QuBit Prism, and Strymon Magneto.

SYNTH RELIC by itijik - Pro Club 0420

"Full beat at: 04:12

Introducing the Synth Relic! "The evolving synth box of wonderful circuit hacks from the retro future." Right now it consists of two analog filters with some tweaked out resonance paths. The raw materials here are actually just tests from the build. I've got new circuits and hacks planned for the Relic. Its gonna get siiick.

As always, the stems/samples are available exclusively to Pro Club members. This time I rendered out the drums and useful layers as samples as well. The drums are based on the Nox drums of course, so I thought it would be dope to add new versions and some from scratch to the collection as we go!

SoundForce Dual ADSR // Heavily expanded JUNO 106 style envelopes with LFOs & CV over everything!

Published on Apr 7, 2020 DivKidVideo

"Here's the new Dual ADSR Eurorack module from SoundForce which at it's base state recreates the response, curves and feel of the classic Roland JUNO 106 envelopes but expands way beyond that. The envelopes can be re-triggered, they cycle with constant or gate cycling behaviour, CV over all stages of the envelopes, inverted out, end of outputs and multiple time/response switches.

00:00 Hello and video previews
01:07 What is the Dual ADSR? Feature run down.
03:07 Roland JUNO 106 envelope behaviour
03:53 A basic way to add velocity or dynamics to your envelopes
05:04 One modulated ADSR and one LFO at the same time
07:19 Envelope based stereo panning techniques
08:57 Cycling envelopes - LFO behaviour
10:57 Ratchet / cycling burst accents
11:56 Expression, dynamics and heavy modulation!
13:36 Hot noise mess! with added “modulation depth” trick.
14:52 ‘End of’ output explanation
16:18 ‘End of’ chained envelopes & FX hits
16:57 Adding groove and making wonky beats with gate delays"

"The SoundForce Dual ADSR is a feature-rich envelope generator with full CV control of each stage.
High performance digital module:

The Dual ADSR is powered by a 120Mhz ARM Cortex-M micro-controller with a built-in DAC. This modern chip allows for extremely smooth envelopes curves even at high frequencies. Thanks to digital technology, the implementation of CV control in software makes the hardware more simple thus economical, and allows for different time ranges and 2 curve responses (LIN/EXP).
