Folktek Resonant Garden w/ Original Box

via this auction

"2018 Folktek Resonant Garden Standalone Synthesizer With Strings, Eurorack Patchable.

The Resonant Garden is an acoustic-electronic hybrid designed to create anything from beats and oddities to dense sound scapes.

The garden essentially utilizes three Alter circuits but each equipped with a mic pre-amp, and 4 garden (stringed) panels for generating acoustics. By plucking, rubbing, tapping or even bowing, those micro-acoustic sounds become amplified and effected by the Alter in any number of ways. In essence, the garden is a large microphone designed to pick up vibrations.


There are two Alter 1 designs and 1 Alter 2. Each Alter 1 has seven different DSP effects which is selected by touching the copper hexagon:

1; long delay (capable of near infinite feedback looping)
2; tight, notated granular delay
3; huge plate reverb
4; shimmering reverb
5; distortion and multi-filter
6; pitch delay
7; stutter glitch

Alter 2 has the following effects:

1; analog delay
2; reverb with infinite capture and lp + hp filters
3; choral
4; palindrome reverse delay - backward/forward repeat
5; time stretch
6; pitch shift (notated semi-tones
7; time stretch glitch


On each of the Alter sections, the following is present:

- control for the gain of the mic pre-amp or any incoming audio.
- controls for mix, X, Y and filter as well as clock.
- all effects have a variation of a filter which may change effect to effect.
- X and Y control various rates.
- clock control adjusts the rate which controls the DSP which can drastically change the effect. In doing so it does slightly lower the quality of the output signal but the results are fantastic. This clock is not for synchronization.
- mix, X, Y and filter all have CV control inputs.
- Each control level or cv input is visualized on the control panel.


Each garden panel is equipped with a contact mic. A contact mic is designed to pick up vibration. The mic pre-amp is specifically designed to deal with the frequencies of the contact mic by boosting certain frequencies and dulling others in order to optimize the sound quality. The mic pre-amp has a gain control so the level can be adjusted according to how you intend to play."

Oberheim OB-8 Page 2 graphics factory MIDI

via this auction

"Very nice Oberheim OB 8 with page 2 graphics and original factory MIDI. This was recently serviced by Switched On in Austin and everything is working as it should. All voices work/tune up properly and this thing sounds amazing.

The only minor issue is that the pots on the stereo out can be a bit scratchy but I mainly use the mono out."

Yamaha CS 60 MIDI controlled (HQ re-upload)

Rainer Keizer

"In this video you hear a very simple acid arpeggio, played through MIDI by my Yamaha CS 60 from 1977. The arpeggio is simple, but illustrates the control possibilities over MIDI, along with showing that a CS can even be used for fast stuff that can't be played by hand - it's not just a synth for pads :-)
Apart from playing the notes over MIDI, my CS 60 is controlled by my iPhone - Brilliance and VCF LFO depth.

This is a re-upload from 2013, from my abandoned YT account klorisk.

I just had my CS back from from repair by Mark Cox in The Netherlands. He fully serviced it and built in a marvellous MIDI interface of his own design. The CS now responds to MIDI Note On, to aftertouch and to four separate MIDI CCs to control VCO and VCF modulation, brilliance and level. On top of that, it can route velocity to brilliance and/or level. Even though velocity will then affect *all* playing notes, it gives more expressive capabilities. Mark’s interface is a lot cheaper than the Kenton one and provides slightly different but all the more useful possibilities.

More of my Yamaha CS 60 improvisations (and a lot more musical than this one):

Korg Minilogue XD: Dense Atmosphere (50 Ambient and Cinematic Pad presets)

Anton Anru

"«Dense Atmosphere» is a collection of 50 pad timbres for Korg Minilogue XD. It consists of: 19 Pads, 11 Strings, 6 Rhythmic, and 14 Drones and Textures.
The presets cover a wide range of sound palette: warm and cold, clean and noisy, dark and bright, musical and atonal, static and rhythmic. They will find their place in many music genres: ambient, cinematic, downtempo, lounge, chillout, deep, progressive, house, trance, techno, dub techno, and others.

All presets are thoroughly set: each has Velocity, Aftertouch, and XY Joystick. Moreover, to make the timbre more dynamic and evolving use Motion Modulation, all 4 slots are set as well. Just hit the PLAY button and keep on playing on keyboard.
All the timbres are done using factory oscillators and effects only, so no additional (third-party) SDK needed to use the collection.
To load the presets to your synth you should use Minilogue XD Sound Librarian application available on Korg official website.

Teisco 100F Monophonic Analog Vintage Synthesizer SN 0295

via this auction

"The 37-key Teisco 100F (also known as the Kawai 100F), released in Japan in 1977, is a fantastic little analog monophonic synthesizer. It features one oscillator, but great sound can be achieved by virtue of the extensive modulation possibilities. Filtering, LFO, VCA, and portamento are excellent and provide the necessary ingredients to dialing in wonderful vintage analog synth sounds. Add to these features the 100F’s elegant vintage design, with a wood enclosure, and you have overall a fantastic vintage analog synth."

Technics SY-1010 Monophonic Analog Vintage Synthesizer

via this auction

"The 32-key Technics SY-1010, released in Japan in the 1970s, is a little analog monophonic synthesizer. It features one saw-up oscillator, a low pass filter, ASDR, and a sine wave LFO. This is one of the most simple commercial analog synthesizers ever made, and although it may not offer the biggest variety of sounds, it remains a rare and highly sought-after collector’s item. And honestly, overall it’s still a nice little vintage analog synth. This synth is in very good condition, with the expected aging of a vintage instrument (please see photos), including some yellowing of the keys, some scratches, and other coloration. However, the unit has been thoroughly tested by our professional technician and works perfectly."

Roland Juno-60 Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

"The analog modeling sound based on the popular ACB technology of SYSTEM-1 has evolved further. The oscillator part has not only basic waveforms such as Saw and Square, but also standard waveforms such as SuperSaw and unique waveforms such as NoiseSaw, FM, and CB. In addition, powerful modulation such as Cross Modulation and Ring Modulator is provided to achieve radical sound make-up."

Tiny Modular, Tiny Plants - Korg Volca Modular and NTS-1 Jam


"What do you do if you can't afford a big swanky wall full of modular synth equipment? Get some tiny plants to go with you Volca Modular. Done

Actually these plants belong to my missus and I've been staring at them on the bathroom window sill for a while. The table and chair are her's too. She likes to make stop frame animation so she has a few miniature props kicking about.

Sadly I had to loose the table when it came to the actual jam as it was impracticably wobbly and made it impossible to connect everything up properly. So I moved it onto the, er, floor..? Shame.

In this jam the Volca Modualr is running through the NTS-1 so it can be processed with it's effects. I'm using the flanger, tape delay and hall reverb on this one. I'm using Poly88 as the oscillator for the arp as it allows me to change the octave being played which is not something that's currently possible with the stock oscillators."
