The Synclavier was an early digital synthesizer, polyphonic digital sampling system, and music workstation manufactured by New England Digital Corporation of Norwich, Vermont. It was produced in various forms from the late 1970s into the early 1990s. The instrument has been used by prominent musicians."

"The synthesizer was fully serviced by Analog Synth Services a few years ago and works excellent with the exception of one of the J wires which recently broke and is in need of replacement. This synthesizer has not been modified with MIDI nor have any other modifications been done to it..."

Polymode drone demo - Voltage Modular


"Another excellent module for Voltage Modular, from Cherry Audio. Kind of a whole synth actually rather than just one module. It's based on the Polymoog, although it has a lot of added features because it's modular, which means you can throw half a dozen LFOs at the resonators, say, if you would ever feel like doing such a ridiculous thing. But who would ever think of doing something like that anyway?

I put together a fizzing and buzzing and moving around drone patch today. It uses the Polymode module, far too many LFOs, and a reverb. Everything's internal to the Voltage Modular app, with nothing external except for an Arturia Keystep, on which I pressed only two keys for the whole thing. You can of course make much more than drones with the Polymode but as soon as I saw all those control voltage jacks on the resonator I knew what I had to do.

The Polymode module sounds great, is quite useful, and is surprisingly inexpensive. Not many of us will ever get our hands on a Polymoog but the Polymode synth module is certainly within the reach of far more of us.

STILL WORTH IT? Sequential Prophet 6 - 5 Years Later

Noir Et Blanc Vie

"*Subjective opinions within, those who do not understand Subjective Opinions may be excused lol*
*Opening music is snippet from my recent release on the YouTube Audio Library*

*When I said 99.9% music is Prophet 6, it's because the small guitar lick in the opening is a guitar, so I wanted to point that out. ALL OTHER MUSIC IS 100% Prophet 6*

ONCE AGAIN...First off this is NOT a review, this is a somewhat chronicle of my time owning the Prophet 6 for 5 years. Collections companies came for my buns after not paying that GC Credit Card bill, man oh man. I love the Prophet 6, it's the right fit for me and what I wanted from an instrument. I want to get away from screens as much as I can, but menu diving isn't really my thing. The Prophet 6 was and is the single most expensive synthesizer I've ever purchased and I don't regret one harassing phone call LOL

When I bought the Prophet 6 I didn't even know what synth youtubing was....Let's just say, if your goal is to be a synth youtuber don't do what I do, just let companies send you stuff. lol

**Fake succulent thumbnail for the trolls pleasure lol**"

Sequential Prophet 6 "PolyVision" sound set by Synthient Sound [patch play through 50-99]

Synthient Sound

"It has been foretold that the Prophet 6 needs no introduction, and so it has come to pass. But a prophet’s true value is in their message; is your synthesizer rambling on a soap box, or is it predicting the sonic promised land of tomorrow from the darkness of today?

Synthient’s PolyVision sound set for the legendary Prophet 6 takes the message of the Prophets of old and envisions a future where technicians become artists. Its 100 included presets are meant for touching, tasting and embracing, not just hearing. Mix, modify, twist and contort these tones until they are haptically, deliciously, and existentially you… then channel your polyphonic spree into a message for all humankind.

A Prophet 6 without a prophet is, after all, merely a blank scroll seeking a hopeful message; PolyVision will be the inspiration for your revelation… and the instigator of your sonic journey.

We predict it.

Against The Clock: Tangerine Dream


"Against The Clock is a series where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with.

Tangerine Dream is one of the most enduring electronic acts of the 20th century. Formed by Edgar Froese in 1967, the act went through multiple iterations but came to define a generation of ambient and new age music whose influence can still be heard on film scores and synth albums today.

Although Froese died in 2015, the band still performs under the stewardship of Thorsten Quaeschning, who joined the band under Froese in 2003. On this episode of Against The Clock, Quaeschning is joined by Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss, who combine synth, violin and guitar to make a track in 10 minutes.

Tangerine Dream’s latest album, Recurring Dreams – a collection of new versions of classic Tangerine Dream tracks – is available now.

First Wires


"Perfunctory video for mandatory audio. Slowly getting things organized and wired...I finally got something coordinated and jammed out. The magic sauce is the Snyderphonics Manta Mate which is spitting out a bunch of semi random voltages to stuff.

I have several small modular kits that I've built for easy travel and setup. No travel, no setups these days, so I have them wired together finally making some lovely noise."

Introducing New Pendulate Plug-in - A Free Chaotic Synth by Newfangled Audio (Overview)

Eventide Audio

"Introducing Pendulate, a chaotic monosynth by Newfangled Audio. Pendulate uses a brand new oscillator design to produce sounds different from any other synth. It features a chaotic oscillator based on a double pendulum. What initially looks random actually contains underlying patterns of interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. When designing the Pendulate oscillator we took great care to bring out these underlying patterns. The result is an oscillator that can smoothly fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.

Moog Matriarch Patching Concepts and Techniques - Sonic LAB


"We recently reviewed the Moog Matriarch for Sonic LAB - the semi-modular four oscillator paraphonic synthesizer with stereo filter and delay. Modular specialist Edd Butterworth also got his hands on it and explored the patching concepts made possible by the inclusion of the 3 attenuverters. Often in semi-modular synths, these are overlooked, but can often unlock more complex and creative techniques for the synthesist.

The patching that they allow opens up the power of modular synthesise and are used by Edd to introduce some interesting patching concepts that can be used in any synthesis environment."

The Sound Test Room

"To download Pendulate for free, visit

– For those bored of the same old synth sounds,
Newfangled Audio's Pendulate offers something truly new – and free. Most synthesizers sound
similar because they’re based on the same technologies. Pendulate is refreshingly different – a
chaotic monosynth that uses a brand-new oscillator technique to create previously unheard
sounds – biting basses, searing leads, and gritty textures. Pendulate, distributed by Eventide,
is available for immediate download free of charge.
Pendulate is based on the physics of a double pendulum. What initially looks like randomness
contains underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. When designing the Pendulate oscillator, great care
was taken to bring out these underlying patterns. The result is an oscillator that can smoothly
fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.
Pendulate’s chaotic oscillator is matched with a wavefolder and low pass gate inspired by the
ideas of legendary synthesizer designer Don Buchla. These three modules – oscillator,
wavefolder, and gate – combine to make previously inconceivable sounds.
Every parameter in Pendulate’s three modules can be modulated by an included Envelope
Generator or LFO, or by MIDI and MPE sources. The innovative modulation interface allows
users to easily and quickly patch any combination of sources to any destination, creating
sounds that compel the listener to move with them."
