TAL sampler | Digital Collection Vol.1 by Espen Kraft DOWNLOAD

video by Espen Kraft

"128 synth patches taken directly from my collection of vintage hardware. Now and before. Sampled by me personally and taken at the output of each synthesizer. I've spent a lot of time honing each patch to sound like it's coming off one of the old samplers I love so much. In addition you get 8 performance patches you can play or edit. You can of course edit all the patches too if you want to.

Get the patches here:"

KNAS Ekdahl Polygamist

via this auction

“'The Ekdahl Polygamist is mainly designed with experimental / drone / noise / improv in mind but can really take you wherever you wanna go. The basic architecture is classic VCO/VCF/VCA design but all of the building blocks have been designed to allow for much more interesting / chaotic sounds then you get from your bread-and-butter synth'

Only 53 made - discontinued -this is #17!
in great shape, there is a chip on the top panel around a screw (pictured) Everything else is great and is functional! it took me awhile to find one of these and frankly I’m sad to see it go.
Somewhere between a Serge, Buchla, and EMS sound-wise.. it’s insane! Lots of fun to patch and play."

You can find demos of the Ekdahl Polygamist in previous posts here.

M-Audio Venom Digital Analog Modeling Synthesizer w/ Original Box

via this auction

Note the following only applies to an extent: "It has long been misunderstood that this keyboard requiressoftware in order to use it as a synth. The venom however can do the samewithout its software. The Venom software just allows for easier access to theVenom's sound engine similar to the Novation UltraNova and similar products ofits time that bundled the option of using a virtual interface along with theirhardware product."

You only have access to a limited number of parameters on the synth itself. You need an editor for the rest. Back when I had time for synth reviews I did one including an interview with Taiho Yamada with some tips and trick. You can find it here. I also created a Touch OSC based iPad editor for the Venom which gave you access to the additional parameters. The editor was ported to TB MIDI Stuff. You can find an editor for Patch Base here.

Luftkraft, 82 Kraftwerk inspired synth patches for Diva

video by Luftrum1

"All sounds you hear in the demo vid above are 100% U-He Diva including all the drums and no external samples or effects of any kind are used. Just several instances of Diva straight to the master output with a limiter on top.

Disclaimer: This is a soundset inspired by Kraftwerk. It is not created nor endorsed by Kraftwerk, it is not an official Kraftwerk product and Kraftwerk has not been involved in the creation of Luftkraft.

Look further below, timeline with breakdown af all patches used in the demo.


Luftkraft is a soundset containing 82 Kraftwerk inspired synth patches for U-He Diva. The patches are made by Luftrum who have replicated several iconic and notable sounds and created a handful of new ones which Kraftwerk never knew existed! The result is a carefully created selection of patches, ranging from famed synth leads to resonant zap drums, recognizable basses and sound effects to panned synth pads and electronic drums.

Luftkraft is fully NKS compatible. It includes tagged NKS presets, NKS audio previews and comes sorted in a Luftkraft subbank, separating them from other Diva presets.

While being replicated as accurately as possible, these are freely inspired synth emulations, recreated by ear. The patches may not at all have the same synth settings as their original counterpart.

The soundset is released ultimo January 2021 on"
