Honoring Florian Drum Kit Demo

CatSynth TV

"We take a closer look at Honoring Florian, a drum kit by Symplesound that recreates analog-style drum sounds as a tribute to the great Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk, who passed away earlier this year. We explore the sounds, and create beats both manually and with a euclidean-rhythm sequencer.

For more information on this free kit, lease visit

Please consider supporting this channel to help us bring you more synthesizer tutorials and other content.

"Florian Schneider was a founding member and principal sound designer for the pioneering German electronic music collective, Kraftwerk. One of the most distinctive elements of Kraftwerk’s sound was their drums and percussion, which were entirely synthesized using analog technology and effects.

This free pack is a tribute to the sound of this analog percussion, with 100% original sounds, synthesized and processed using the same design aesthetics as Mr. Schneider’s."

OPTIGAN Model 35001 Stereophonic with Reverb


"Demo of Optigan Model 35001 using the Movin' disc"

"All keys work, and all chord buttons work easily. Volume pedal works. In the down position, special effects buttons 1,3 & 5 all work; 4 is intermittent, and 2 doesn't work; none work in the up (lock) position. These are known issues and can be resolved by disassembly and cleaning the contacts; there are videos on YouTube about how to do this.

Cosmetically it's in decent shape, with some scuffs and scratches. There is a small chip above the 4th special effects switch and some discoloration on the plastic apron above the chord and percussion switches."

"AKAI XE8 DRUM EXPANDER 19" rack unit plus 2 Expansion cards.

Classic and now fairly rare drum synth module from 1986. In superb condition from non-smoking and pet free home studio. Very clean example in full working order - very minimal marks around mounting holes but none of the usual scratches on base or lid often found on 2nd hand rack equipment - see pictures. Selling only as I need to reduce my studio gear a little.

Digital sounds are 16bit/32kHz. Can be triggered over any midi control device such as midi keyboard or sequencer such as an AKAI MPC.

Fantastic production tool for Electronic based music - Hip Hop, Electro, House, EDM, etc... Great selection of 16 percussion sounds built in but also supplied are 2x expansion cards with an extra 16 sounds each - SLI01R (dry set) and SL802R (ambience set) which are in themselves becoming hard to obtain.

Midi in/out/thru connections. 8 individual outputs plus 1 full mix output all on 6.3mm jack sockets and 2 expansion slots - 1 on front and 1 on rear, so both expansion cards can be mounted together. LED display shows data and sound info. Sound parameters (pitch, tune, envelope) can be edited and stored so you can tweak the sounds to your preference plus can be modulated via midi performance info.

Supplied with original manual and a power cable. Manual features full midi implementation chart, program data chart and parameter guide."

Oberheim Matrix 6R SN KGB 4361 w/ V2.14 Firmware

via this auction

SN could be K6B4361 but I like to think it's KGB. Is K6B L337 for KGB? The preset pictured is ARCANGEL. Feel like I entered a spy move. Not to mention, Sean Connery passed away yesterday and recently declassified documents revealed there was a real life James Bond in MI-6.

"The V2.14 Firmware provides much better midi response and allows use of the Beautiful and Free CTRLR Matrix 6 editor. This basically allows the 6R to act as a VST, but with all of the authentic analogue goodness. Includes a CD-R with patches and both the VST and stand-alone editors."

"Pat Metheny - New England Digital Synclavier Demonstration - Old Grey Whistle Test - Roland G-303 Super rare footage from the British television show 'The Old Grey Whistle Test'. I believe the clip was pulled for years as the original broadcast included the tune 'Tell It All', from 'First Circle' and this was blocked by WBM Group from being shown on YouTube. Great to have it back!"

Vintage Synth Lab Eurorack AWM-3 Halloween 2020

Vintage Synthlab

"Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, happy, and creative Halloween!

The AWM-3 is a 3 channel mixer, with additional features such as wave folding/shaping (for both independent positive and negative folding), per channel.

Channels can be chained together to create multi-folding, up to triple wave folding. A compressor allows for dynamic signals (VCA driven) to fine tune a wide array of new sonic character.

Bias is adjustable (threshold for wavefold action), as well as a level trim (6 total) for each channel's positive and negative bias modulation via the additional CV inputs.

Each channel also has a buffered output.

And last, master mix, and three matrix mix combo outputs are always accessible."

Birthday Track by Yurii Zubkov

"Quick tune on my birthday.
Bass is slightly off sync here, because I made second take for the bass line, did not liked the first one from the video.
Novation Circuit works as MIDI controller for Ableton here."

Happy Birthday Yurii!

From the creators of the Bluebox synthesizer comes a new project for DIYers. Currently on Kickstarter here.

"A short introduction to the OPUS MAX BOARD music computer and development board for making music gear with the STM32H750 micro controller. It will come with a profession grade synthesizer and audio effects unit to loop sounds through the board externally. And with information on how to make your own music gear like synthesizers and audio effect units."

"Back in 2011 the worlds smallest synthesizer DSC Bluebox was made, but vent by unnoticed. This time Digital Soundchips that made the synthesizer is back, and want to solve the problems that they once went through for you and others.

Now we a ready to present a single-board computer for audio plugins and music gear. And with one profession grade synthesizer plugin, and a multi effects unit to loop audio through. That uses a open plugin standard with plugins on microSD card.

Imagine making professional music hardware gear, based on a super simple audio plugin format. And develop music gear that can use several plugins simultaneously.

We want to make a pre-configured scalable solution, so you can start writing your audio code and run ready-made plugins. And lower the development time for new music gear from years or month's, to weeks.

Lets make it faster and fun to develop commercially viable professional music gear.

Using Cherry Audio's CA2600 As An Audio Effect

"The Cherry Audio CA2600 is a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600. Every aspect of the original, from the quirky oscillator waves, to the powerful ladder filter, to the external audio input and preamp section was modeled with tremendous precision. Though it features similar functionality, it’s been thoughtfully updated for increased flexibility - with semi-normalled patch cablinging, integrated effects, and no hidden windows or menus in the audio path, CA2600 delivers an unprecedented hands-on, “everything right in front of you, right now!,” vintage synthesis experience like no other.

Wildly flexible, capable of chunky basses, cutting leads, super-creative external audio processing, absolutely insane effects, and so much more, we believe you’ll find CA2600 to be the finest 2600 emulation ever created." - Priced at $25

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #100: Arturia MicroFreak - Song 1

Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the MicroFreak. It's a monophonic/paraphonic synthesizer with a digital oscillator section containing 12 different algorithms and an analog filter.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
MicroFreak - Digitech Obscura - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."
