Yamaha AN1x FM, Free EG, Seq & Arps Demo Patches


Sequential Prophet~10 Rev 4

Hitoshi Koizumi

"Sequential Prophet~10 Rev 4
Strymon BigSky
.....this is a genuine analog polyphonic synthesizer!!"

PROPHET~6 Synthesizer - Sound Demo - vintage old school custom patches, Sequential

Tom Loncaric

"The Sequential Prophet~6 synthesizer! These presets were made by me over the last three years. I developed these sounds for live concerts which needed emulations of organs, brass and classic synth tones.

Everything in this video is performed live, in the spirit of the classic synth tones of the 1970’s and 1980’s.

This Prophet~6 is recorded by an iPad with a Roland GO:MIXER PRO. No eq. All sounds made by the Sequential Prophet~6"

Prophets of Paradise: Prophet-6, Prophet-12, OB-6 🌴


"Found this one hanging out in the archives!"


via this auction

"Professionally serviced and working perfectly. We had our tech replace the power supply capacitors as a preventative measure. This unit is currently set to 240v and was originally in use in Germany. The plug is a 2 prong European plug. It can be switched between 240v and 115v via a switch on the back panel."

Aquifex - Reface DX live looper jam (one synth, all parts)

"Another of my 'one synths/all parts' demos. MIDI assist from Theoryboard (some chord variations) and Keystep (perc arps).

All layers played by hand into a multi-looper and remixed live to a stereo recorder.

The Reface DX has amazing sound and realtime timbre control for a 4-op synth. Some patches sound like 6-op patches, as in a DX-7."

Have a safe, happy and healthy Xmas and here's to a better New Year!

All the best,

"Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar 37-Key Analog Monophonic Programmable Synthesiz. Condition is "Seller refurbished".

The OSAar was a synthesizer manufactured by the Oxford Synthesizer Company from 1983 to 1985. It was ahead of its time in several ways and its later versions were among the few mono-synths of its time to have MIDI. Around 2000 were made.

Chris Huggett designed the electronics while independent product designer Anthony Harrison-Griffin was responsible for the unique look and build of the OSCar.

This has a pure Analog signal path and has that original drippy 303 tone. It’s wonder from new and in superb condition / not much to say really it does what is says on the tin....

I’ve used it for lead sounds as well as 303 - it’s actually a good lead synth as well.

Roland TB-303 Bass Line Synthesizer + Carry Bag + PSU's

via this auction

"The TB-303 is in a really good shape. No damages on the plastic housing, clean battery compartment no scratchy pots. The only blemish is on the cover. There was a scratch that has been over painted. The TB-303 is equipped with a Sequentix Midibass midi interface. This modification is nondestructive and can be removed easily. Buyer will receive the original parts that has been removed to fit in the midi interface. I believe the Midibass is the best midi mod out there because it keeps the original functionality and feel of the TB-303 and just adds midi capability. The new owner will receive the original Roland carry bag and two original PSU's for EU and US voltage."

IO-Lights Demo

instruments of things

"IO-Lights is really easy to use. Just plug it to your computer or smartphone via USB and start playing MIDI notes. For control change message, switch to MIDI-CC mode and map some parameters. You want to connect IO-Lights to your hardware synthesizer? Then simply use an additional USB MIDI host (e.g. your computer). Have fun!"

See this post for additional info. Spaceship | Episode 04 | Configuring Shuttle Control

Cinematic Laboratory

"One of the most powerful modules in the Shuttle System is the Shuttle Control. It converts midi and external controller information to CV. It supports separate mono voices, but it can also be configured to controlling a maximum of eight polyphonic voices. Since most of us have eight oscillators in our rig I've created a configuration file where preset 7 & 8 support duophony (for the Furthrrr Generator or your DPO) and a three voice polyphony setting for a bigger system. I can basically run all my cases and modules with these presets."
