Keeley Hydra pedal on synth - Prophet Rev2

Richard DeHove

"The Hydra tremolo and reverb combo pedal tested on a Rev2 synth. Not an exhaustive tutorial but more a taster of the three modulation modes and three reverbs. I bought this pedal myself at full price, so not a paid review or an affiliate. The Rev2 was set to about half volume, straight into the soundcard and then into Reaper. There was absolutely no post-processing of the sound in anyway - no compression, no eq."

This is what it sounds like when you control half your modular with Mutable Instruments Tides...

Cables For Clouds

"This is a leftover synth jam recorded on 09.22.2020
I sent Tides into 3 filters, Plaits, Rings, Elements and a delay.
I fed the reverb into a VCA/ envelope (which ends up sounding like a wall of white noise)

"Design matched Sequential OB-6, but works for Prophet 6 and can be used for other MIDI synths too.

Display works perfectly but was hard to photograph without looking weird. It looks the way it should in person."

Oberheim Two Voice TVS-1A (1976) with Sequencer SN 0428

Station 2Station

via this auction

"As a buyer, please be aware that this is a vintage instrument from 1976. It's nearly half a century old, and you will never hear that raw electricity coming from a modern synth. BUT at the same time because of the age, these instruments can be temperamental and sometimes require repair. It's vintage discreet analog circuitry. That being said, Oberheim Two Voice synthesizers are reliable, as well as being highly repairable. But this unit is in great working order (see video).
The keyboard is clean and functioning perfect.
The knobs/pots are lubricated and functioning properly but they are mechanical pots from 1976 and they do feel like it. But they are normal for an Oberheim TwoVoice.
The white face of the instrument is clean and nearly scuff free (see pics).
The Tolex shell is in very good condition with no tears or major flaws - but is obviously 45 years old. (see pics)
The Owners Manual is original and some of the binding loops are cracked.
These instruments are exceedingly rare and Collectors Items and are increasing in value monthly. This should be considered and heirloom piece."

CRUMAR STRATUS Vintage CEM Synthesizer SN 00269

via this auction

"Unfairly marked as "slimmed-down version of the Crumar Trilogy", the Stratus is actually a synth with its own character and features, a hybrid keyboard with a set of sounds which belong neither to the world of the conventional organ nor to that of complex polyphonic synth. Released in 1982, it's a 6-voices polyphonic analog synthesizer + organ synth which can be played separately or simultaneously.


The Synth section implements two 74LS221 oscillators (the same used in the ultra-rare Crumar DS-1) with saw, square and saw+square waveforms. The two oscillators can be synced or tuned separately. The Synth architecture is basically built around CEM chips and in fact it features 6 CEM VCFs, 6 CEM VCAs and 6 CEM EG (one per voice). The CEM filters and envelopes, combined with the various oscillator features, make it possible to create a wide range of electronic pianos, lush strings, quasi-vocal pads and tuned percussive sounds. A very unusual (unique?) feature is the "Alternate" switch: this automatically switches between sawtooth and square on every key depression, or only after all the keys have been released and one is depressed again.


The Organ section implements two additional detunable (or syncable) master tone generators divided-down to generate the octaves of the 4 horizontal drawbars (2', 4', 8' and 16'). The fact that the two master Organ oscillators can be detuned allows to produce a vast, rich, organy sound. The Organ section is fully polyphonic and can benefit of the Glide effect and the LFO features. The Organ audio output can be taken separately from a ¼inch jack socket on the back panel, or from the socket marked 'Polysynth' which in fact gives a mix of synth and organ if used alone.

Yamaha DX5 FM Synthesizer

via this auction

"Here is a very rare and massive sounding FM beast of a synth.. The classic and legendary DX5. Essentially a DX1 minus the weighted keybed and top panel LEDs.

There is simply nothing like a DX5 / DX1 synth. It is by far the best and biggest sounding FM engine made. I personally A/B'd this against a DX7, DX7II and other FM synths.. the DX5 simply is superior in raw tone. PLUS its essentially TWO DX engines under the hood. Yummy!!!

It all works great and sound amazing. Battery is NEW as of 1-14-21 : ), all keys, jacks, buttons, sliders are great. No operational issues.

Also comes with the two ROM carts."
