Sequential Prophet-5 Rev 4 + DrumBrute Sketch

San Stacks

"Super quick, uh, "jam". Still no doubts over here: The Prophet-5 Rev 4 is pretty much one of the best synthesizers I've ever played. This was tracked to LUNA through a UA Apollo x8p using the Unison V76 Preamps and a smidge of LA-2A compression. In LUNA, I tend to enable the Neve summing bus and also use the ATR-102 tape option. Because that shit sounds RIGHT."

Micro Synth ParipiDestroyer with KORG volca beats by Shangri-La

Shangri-la S

"Hello friends. I play a brand new micro synth 'ParipiDestroyer' produced by DigiLogTokyo's sub-brand 'Crazy Synth Kids'. This cute and very tiny synthesizer provides intense bass sounds despite its cute looks. Paripi is the meaning of "Party People" This is so dope! How you play is up to you. It is a size that you can carry anytime and anywhere in a real sense."

See this post for details on the ParipiDestroyer.

A Tincture As Needed


"A 5U modular patch with the new STG Soundlabs Oscillators. Using a pair of Q960 step sequencers and a pair of STG Envelope Generators as well as a Post Lawsuit LPF and Yusynth Arp 4072 filter. Other processors include EchoFix tape delay, Maestro phase shifter, Klark Teknik 3rd Dimension and Hedra pitch shifter. The modulation aspect of the STG VCO's is very useful for detuning right on the front panel. These are very alive sounding and have plenty of character."

V.A.I. 2 : Farfisa Soundmaker - Steelphon S900 - Elka Drummer One - Binson Echorec 2

Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Not too much too explain here, the big Elka Drummer in the video is an odd piece of gear, it's the classic drum machine but built in to a huge speaker.

Fun fact: Drummer-one means Big Drum in Italian slang.

The Farfisa Soundmaker is a polyphonic string machine and mono-synth with a lot of fun modulation options on board.

The Steelphon S900 is a dual oscillator monophonic synth from 1972 with tons of modulation capabilities, programmable presets (!) and use the famous Moog ladder filter.
With White and Pink noise that you can route to control the filter and tone this thing can really sound huge and is one of the very best italian Monophonic synths ever made.
If you'd like to know more - check out our video of Steelphon S900 here: [posted here, also see this one]

We make these videos as a showcase for our studio and for curious vintage heads - and for fun.

We don't dilly-dally too much with production and mixing but it can sound pretty good with headphones on."

EMU PX7 groovebox demo


"Bought this a few weeks ago. Thought I wanted the EMU back (it's the same thing as the MP7)... probably not. I think I wasted more time making this than it was worth, but if I'm going to put in the effort, might as well send it off.

Cool device/synth. Internal sounds are great for sure... But I don't think it's really my style.

Eventide Blackhole VST used as well."

PROPHET-10 REV4 Synthesizer - Sound Demo - Vintage old school custom patches, Sequential reissue

Tom Loncaric

"The new Prophet-10 Rev 4 synthesizer! Most of these presets were made by me in the last two days. The Prophet Rev4 is a vintage synth lovers dream! Pretty much every parameter is in the sweet spot.

Everything in this video is performed live, in the spirit of the classic synth tones of 1980’s. I have played many of these same riffs in previous videos, and thought it might be useful to for people to hear them again for comparison purposes.

This Prophet-10 is recorded by an iPad with a Roland GO:MIXER. No eq. The only effect in this video is a Moog Minifooger delay pedal."

Creating A Sound That's Been Stuck In My Head // Pro 3 Sound Design & Understanding Envelopes

Ricky Tinez

"I've had this sound in my head for a few days so its finally time to put myself to the test and see if i can make it! This video serves as a sound design walk through of creating an evolving pad sound. Heavily utilizing Envelopes and modulation of the filter we can add a lot or a little bit of movement to the sound. Starting with some wavetable action, this creates an interesting oscillator core that we can work with to further manipulate into, hopefully, creating something beautiful.

Retro Harrier Jet & Falklands Tactical Video | DOS C64 ZX Spectrum

Synth & Sundry

"A low-key celebration of vintage computer game simulators and the poignancy of library music made with synthesizers.

Footage features the following videogames: Super VGA Harrier (DOS), Harrier Jump Jet (DOS), Falklands (C64) and Falklands '82 (ZX Spectrum)

This synth track is based on library music from an old documentary. I augmented it and reworked it using sampled synth instruments and drum machines from Samples From Mars on Ableton Live.

Étude No.7 - Arbhar/BIA/Desmodus Versio/ Rampage/Mimeophon

Omri Cohen

"If you like what I do and want to support my work, consider joining me on Patreon -

Here are some patch notes:
- I have some strings recorded on Arbhar, and it's set to wavetable mode.
- I'm using the Keystep Pro to send pitch information to it, and also to trigger one envelope of Rampage which is controlling the wet signal, acting basically as a VCA.
- I have the built-in reverb of Arbhar active and open, and this is going to even more reverb through the Desmodus Versio.
- I'm using another envelope from Rampage to control the Spray amount, and the comparator output is opening the size of the grains allowing the string samples to playback.
- The same pitch information is going to the Basimilus, which is going through the Mimeophon.
- I have the attack of the Basimilus all the way down, and the decay all the way up so it's quite noisy, and the wet control of the Mimeophon is all the way up, and it's set to play the repeats in reverse."

Showing off my personal sample collection I have obtained thru
the years. I have loaded these samples on countless samplers.
I love them because they are personal creations or favorite presets.
There will be many samples you will recognize from music & TV for sure!
I love SAMPLING as much as I love Analog & Digital synthesizers!
It is an ART for sure & a BLAST to use them in music!

Free Ableton Instruments - Tape Echo Synths built using the Roland Chorus Echo and Crumar Stratus

Expanding Sound

"Get the Free pack here

This was a fun little pack to make! I didn't dive in too hard yet as I see a megapack in the future with this tape echo machine. I recently received my Roland Chorus Echo back from service, which is a great analog tape echo with a beautiful chorus as well as reverb. It adds a ton of character to anything you process through it. My Crumar Stratus was set up from a previous video I recorded so I thought it might be fun to make a few Ableton Instruments using the Stratus/Chorus Echo combination. I hope you enjoy them! I plan to run a lot of different instruments through the chorus echo and really have some fun with the modulation in the future."

Polivoks Mini -Filter Drone


"Testing the Polivoks Mini. The filter sounds authentic to my ears from the limited time I had with an original. I do think it misses the 2nd oscillator though, the sub helps but it misses the extra weight from a detuned 2nd oscillator in my opinion."
