ARP 2600 Original Patch Book & Service Manual

via this auction

"This original patch book is in a binder together with the original Arp 2600 service manual... The patch book is so cool because it includes all kinds of ideas that I never would have considered. The service manual has all of its fold-out schematics and looks unused. Both are sold together and ship in the vintage binder used by the 1st owner."

Roland TR-626 vs. TR-707 | Which one should you get?

Espen Kraft

"Two classic drum machines from Roland. They both have their pros and cons.

The 626 can be upgraded with new EPROM chips to have different samples, but I'd still want the original ones present as these are very usable in themselves too.

The 626 has lots of percussion sounds and 30 drum sounds in total. The 707 has 15 sounds in total and virtually no percussion sounds.

Both have individual outs, but the 707 has the mixer on top for quick mixing of the sounds on the fly. The 626 has the ability to tune the drums +/- 7 steps, the 707 does not.

The 707 has the grid/matrix LCD for easy pattern programming, the 626 has less visual clues to give when it come to the more tiny LCD where you can only see one drum sound at a time.

Personally I feel the 707 has a more 'produced and ready' sounding kick and snare, but the 626 can easily be EQ'ed and compressed to sound thick and punchy. You might feel differently. ;-)

Huge thanks to Anders Jensen for loaning me his 707 for this video!"

Elinch: just playing around with new looper | expert sleepers disting ex | eurorack modular synthesizer


"'here are a few moments with the super new looper algorithm from disting ex. andrew (os) has programmed many great features in the looper, such as clocking, vcas for each track, attack and release envelopes, filter, 8bit mode etc. at the beginning you hear the right disting with 4 previously recorded 8bit stereo loops, then the left with 4 16bit mono loops. all sounds come from the sample library of the two disting ex (except for the drums: tokyo tape music center oscillator / and the women voice from my iPad). I also rediscovered clouds, in between it comes from it somewhat granular. enjoy listening!'

this time this video was recorded by cubasis and edited with a limiter. for the best listening experience listen to the video with headphones or good speakers.

for your info. this video, like all of my other videos, was not sponsored by expert sleepers or any other company. if someone really wants to support me, watch & like my videos, write me a comment or, if you like, buy my music at bandcamp :-)"

Sequential Prophet 6 Demo

Pure Ambient Drone

"The Dave Smith Prophet 6 synthesizer by Sequential formally known as Dave Smith Instruments (DSI) is one of the best synthesizers I have yet to come across. It has a rich and thick sound and can go from zero to sixty in no time flat. This video is a prophet 6 demo of its sound. The DSI Prophet 6 synthesizer is a new take on the Prophet 5, another classic from Dave Smith, AKA Sequential."

You can find some previous creations by Brendan Byrne via the label below. Note some videos are missing. Unfortunately some people pull them off of YouTube over time. I keep the posts as a reference that they once existed and the descriptions usually have some useful info worth keeping for synth history's sake.

Black Corporation Deckard's Voice // Dreamy Eurorack Synth Voice


Deckard's Voice was first announced in August 2019, and RACHEL shortly after.

"Here’s the *PROTOTYPE* Deckard’s Voice module from Black Corporation. It’s a monophonic analogue Eurorack synth voice based on the Deckard’s Dream polyphonic since - which in itself is a replicant with a serious nod to the classic Yamaha CS-80. In 32HP is features an analogue oscillator, two LFOs, two envelopes, two filters and plenty of CV ins and outs. For a detailed run down download the free PDF quickstart I’ve made and linked below.

*PROTOTYPE* - this is a pre release prototype unit, final tweaks and adjustments may be made in the production version.

KORG 707 Digital Synthesizer 1987 | HD DEMO


"(c) 2020 by AnalogAudio1

Synthesizer demo of the digital "performing synthesizer" Korg 707 from 1987.

I used an original Korg SDD-3000 for delay effects and a Lexicon MPX-500 for reverb effects. In the intro music, the Korg 707 was played along with a Dynacord EC 280 analog delay. All the sounds were programmed by me.

The Korg 707 is a digital synthesizer based on FM (frequency modulation) synthesis. It has a "performance editor" containing parameter sliders which allow sound tweaks in realtime. MIDI multimode. Fat unisono mode, layer and split capabilities. It can be used as a remote keyboard and it can run on batteries. it's capable of some excellent digital sounds!"
