BD9Q9 Kick with a TR-505 & Realistic Reverb + Delay Feedback


"I borrowed a BD9Q9 kick which is a TR-909 kick clone with some extra knobs and built in distortion. I picked up a used TR-505 for cheap and used it for the clap, hats and percussion. There is a Realistic "Reverb" in one mixer feedback loop and a Memory Boy delay in the other creating the droning background textures and tones. Everything is sequenced by Patterning 2 on the iPad. Everything is smashed together in the reliable Boss BX-8."

"As you're probably aware, customers have reported various blemishes on their 2600's received from Korg. The only thing I can see on this unit is a small (<1/2 inch) area on the corner of the tolex on the removable lid that seems rough. It's barely visible by eye, but I've included a pic for full disclosure"

Mu-Tron: The Groundbreaking Story of The Sound of The ‘70s | A Conversation with Mike Beigel


"The Mu-Tron story starts with a synthesizer and includes a plane crash, a chicken-coop visitation from Stevie Wonder, and a downfall beset by a faulty gizmo called, appropriately enough, the Gizmotron. In this extended profile from our upcoming feature film, The Pedal Movie, Mike Beigel gives us his own take on the history of his famous circuitry.

ARP 2600 Ring Modulator as VCA

O.Z. Hall

"I don't want to flood the channel, but I thought this might be interesting to review. On the ARP 2600 I'm using the Ring Modulator as Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA). Normally the Ring Mod is used to get "clang" tones for bells, or to get the 'X-Wing fighter' radio voice. It's also usable as a VCA. In fact it's kind of "super" vca because it is a "4 quadrant" multiplier vs the normal VCA which is a 2 quadrant multiplier (google it ... interesting stuff)."

GLASYS: The Hydrasynth is a Beast! I Created an Entire Track With It


"The ASM Hydrasynth is a very deep and unique synthesizer and has quickly become one of my new favorites. Here's a tune I wrote called "The Hydra" that was made using nothing but 8 patches I programmed on this synth.

I recorded it pretty spontaneously, the main melody/pad sound was improvised and recorded without a click, I then started overdubbing the other sounds. Since nothing was recorded to a grid, the timing is pretty dynamic and... human. :)

I created the Hydra background in Photoshop out of some ancient Greek art.

Hope you enjoy!"

Garfield Electronics Master Beat Clock

This appears to be the first post with pics of one. You can find a video of a synth session that featured one here.

"Garfield Master Beat Clock MIDI Trigger Synthesizer SMPTE. Condition is For parts or not working.

Has been through some obvious battles. Please note the extremely bent and rusted rack ear. Comes as pictured.

Powers on fine but only occasionally working. Can work for awhile sometimes by reseating the chips in the unit but being sold for parts or not working as im not quite sure what would permanently fix it.

When working, there is no shortage of clocking, trigger and timing options."
