Exploring the Meris Enzo with the OP 1

Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video resident expert Matthew Piecora takes us on a sound journey with the Meris ENZO and the Teenage Engineering OP-1.

Th Meris ENZO is a multi-voice synthesizer that will track your guitar/electronic instrument for tight monosynth leads, complex chord polyphony, or multi-note sequenced arpeggiation. All without any special pickup installation. Just put it on your board and discover your own reality. The Enzo isn’t limited to guitar; use it on any instrument whether drum machine, vocals or other synths. Completely transform your input signal and synthesize. Use the full synth palette of multimode analog style synth filters, ring modulation, envelopes and much much more to drive punchy, thick synth textures. Or, explore an altered state of your pure instrument signal by transforming it with pitch, time and modulation effects. Plug in to a revelation generator.

Order the Meris ENZO here:

The Modular Remedy - Lost in the Loop (MOTM Box)


PE-1 - Basics - ALM016


"The PE-1 is a dual band parametric EQ and simple two channel mixer. It is inspired by the EQ circuits used in early ‘Portastudio’ type 4 track tape mixers. PE-1 provides +/-12db of boost and cut across 2 selected frequency bands. The top band ranges from 1kHz - 8kHz and the bottom band from 62Hz - 1.5kHz.

In this video we look at some common uses; a classic EQ, adding warmth & character to a digital source and shaping the feedback loop of a delay patch.

0:00 Intro - Boosting / cutting and sweeping bands following a beat

Expert Sleepers General CV

via this auction

The General CV is a super powerful CV to MIDI environment capable of generating a wide range of GM sounds for a new way of controlling well known MIDI soundsets. This module is also capable of sending out MIDI allowing you to convert several lines of CV to control your MIDI devices, a rare capability indeed.

This module is in great shape with light rack rash. Includes original box."

Erica Synths Black Hole DSP 2

"The Blackhole DSP 2 is a high quality stereo effects module geared towards reverb, delay, and modulation. There are 3 effect parameters, patch select and rate, all CV controllable with true stereo I/O and dry/wet with CV. This is the version 2 with more effects, improved sound and layout.

This module is in good working condition with just some rack rash. Includes factory packaging."

1969 Hammond Innovex synthesizer Condor GSM

via this auction

"Original guitar synthesizer made by Innovex/Hammond Corp. Made in 1969, this synthesizer works great and truly brings back the sound of Woodstock. Does not include original MIDI cord, and the only small issue's are some of the keys are sticky/dirty and need to be cleaned but all the EFX work. Also, one of the lightbulbs that illuminates the Vibrato/tremolo/repeat (red channel) is not connected but is included (pictured). A great piece for a vintage music collector."

Sequential Circuits Six-Trak SN 003811

via this auction

"Six-trak good, clean working condition. All original. Few scratches shown in pictures for thoroughness.

Volume knob is a little fuzzy, needs cleaning.

Checked the 3V battery it’s got plenty of life."

Roland Jupiter-8

Peter Lerman

via this auction

"Hi, I'm selling my beloved Roland Jupiter 8. It's in perfect working order and was just serviced pre-sale so it's ready to be enjoyed. I had a new battery installed and all the switches and faders cleaned and lubricated as well as Encore MIDI professionally installed (custom done discretely on the removable DCB panel so no drilling was done into the JP8.) I had two of these at one point and kept this one around until now because it sounded better. To me it just has that magic. I made a quick video running through some of the functions - scroll through the photos to see that (or down below if you’re on a mobile device). This is a US 117V model and I believe it is the 12-bit version but I'm not an expert on this distinction so I can message you the serial number so you can research this for yourself. Local pickup in Miami Beach encouraged but happy to ship fully insured within the US."

Oberheim SEM 8 Voice Programmer

via this auction

"Vintage 70s Oberheim Modules/Parts Lot #1

Included in this sale is:

1 X Oberheim 8 Voice Programmer for the original SEM modules
1 X Oberheim SEM-sized blank panel with Oberheim logo (rare!)
1 X 5u Rack Panel that holds either two SEMS or the above two pieces (no back to it, no PSU included)

All items are sold non-functioning as is with no returns. It's a project although if you have an Oberheim 2 Voice, 4 Voice, 8 Voice or SEMS already or plan to get them then this rare piece which is almost never sold on its own is a priceless gem and shouldn't be too hard to get up and running. I make no guarantee of it working but it probably does. That's why this is sold as is and I will not accept any returns so make sure you know what you're buying please. It was part of a racked 8 voice system but only certain modules/parts are still available. I will have various rare vintage Oberheim parts/products for sale separately."

Oberheim Xpander w/Original Hard Case

via this auction

"Well conditioned and cared for Oberheim Xpander. Wait until your hear this thing! Incredibly lush and a fantastic work horse. Still had that Oberheim feel and tone with a mod ‘80s flavor!

This particular model was taken out of working studio in Japan. It is a 100v model. All encoders work accordingly. I’ve only found one or two buttons that sometimes need a double push, nothing major at all. Screen is incredibly bright still.

Voices sound great! I only found a slight imperfection in one of the voice when I used a non-velocity sensitive keyboard.
Anything with after touch or velocity sensitivity blended in with my playing and I didn’t notice for months. It would be wise to have your synth tech go over any vintage instrument with as much prestige and price tag as these.

Synth comes with its original Oberheim branded hard case and USA Xpander manual."

Erica Synths Black LPG sound demo

Erica Synths

"Erica Synths Black LPG is our take on the Lowpass Gate idea – it’s designed from scratch featuring 2nd order lowpass VCF and VCA combo with distinct resonance circuit on top.


00:00 SAW through LPG
00:48 PULSE through LPG
01:43 Drum Break through LPG
02:40 various sequenced waves through LPG
04:21 looped pad sample through LPG
05:40 using just trigger in with self oscillating LPG
06:15 using envelope go the LPG to modulate the VCO's frequency
06:57 switching LPG modes with LFO
07:26 FM radio through LPG
08:03 JAM!

For the jam two LPG's are used with Black VCO 2 and Graphic VCO sent through them. After that one LPG is sent through Black Stereo Delay and other one is sent through Black Hole DSP II.Everything is sequenced with the Black Sequencer with MIDI in replace mode where incoming MIDI notes replace one of the CV outputs."

Don't BATTERY POWER your SYNTH before watching this vid! Tutorial + guide to choosing a battery

nick kwas

halo bolt:
goal zero yeti:

"two steps to figure out what size battery you need:

1. figure out power consumption of your synth
-look at the synth's power supply for voltage and current (mA)
-multiply volts times current in Amps (A=milliamps/1000)
-Resulting number is the power consumption in watts
-do this for each synth you want to power

2. look at the mWh (milli watt hours) spec of the battery
-divide the number (in watts = milliwatts/1000) by the total power consumption (in watts) of your synths
-the resulting number is how many hours you can run this load for

therefore: if your synth draws, say, 30 watts, and you want to be able to run it for two hours, get a battery that provides 60 watt hours, or 60000mWh - the halo bolt is pretty close to this at 58830mWh. if you need a beefier battery, look for something with a higher mWh rating, something in the 100000mWh-200000mWh range. happy synthing :)

I would like to release a new album including this song soon.
I hope you enjoy it.

Curious what the vocoder is. If anyone knows feel free to leave a comment. Posting for the KORG MS20 & Roland SH-101, and the cool track. Check out additional K0MABA posts here.
