"Paul tests out his newly-built NLC GENiE with a noise demo.

From the NLC site: "GEneralized Nonlinear Extrapolator This module is made of 3 neuron circuits and a difference rectifier. (... )Just like a set of synaptically connected neurons, this module is noisy and unruly. It is never going to learn anything it lives in and for the moment."

More information about this design (as well as PCBs, panels, and complete modules) is available from Nonlinearcircuits here:​

PCBs, panels, and complete kits are available from synthCube here:​

Yamaha TG77 Tone Generator FM AWM Synthesiser SN QO02586

via this auction

"The Yamaha TG77 is the rack mount equivalent of the Yamaha SY77 synthesiser workstation. It is a 16-voice multitimbral synth utilising Yamaha's advanced Frequency Modulation; Advanced Wave Memory; and the combination of these two systems, either by layering together or by modulating an AFM voice by an AWM wave, a synergy termed Realtime Convolution and Modulation Synthesis (RCM). The TG77 is a very powerful module capable of great acoustic emulations and other worldly pads and effects."

Soundscapes - Microfreak 3 and MLR

video by junklight

"It's been a weekend of experimentation and play on the music front. I upgraded the microfreak to get the superb new Noise Engineering algorithms. As you may have noticed if you watched earlier videos on this channel I really like the NE stuff and these additions to the Microfreak are no exception

For these soundscapes i started with an init patch although for the video I edited the initial 20-30 seconds of getting a starting sound out"

VAI 48 Elgam Carousel / Farfisa Syntorchestra

video by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"We wanted to make a song with unadulterated sounds from the Elgam Carousel, plug and play as you say these days. This is one take with the Carousel, mono out, with some Farfisa Syntorchestra flourishes.
Just a little compression and spring reverb on The Carousel and some Roland Re-301 on the Syntorchestra.
None of the instruments are properly tuned when we recorded this so don’t look to close on the fingerwork ;)

Headphones are highly recommended since the bass line generator on these is fantastic.

We then of course turned around and made a heavily adulterated track, lots of effects, will post next week.
This one is for sale, it's in amazing condition, see earlier post for price and shipping.

We’re a tracking studio and as gear vendor in the hills of Florence.
We make these videos for fun when there’s not that much to do in the studio, sloppy playing and mixing aside - it will def sound better with headphones on."

Antonelli has produced 2 synthesizers which each have a personality and a particular sound.
2445 which with its filters and its vibrato creates creamy waves chords at will ,
Solista IV which brings its big bass vibrations with its bass boost and some layers of
psychedelic sounds with its flanger and its vibrato.
They link very well, I often associated them with delays effects and loops."

"2601 v3.0: Late in 1980, a final revision was released with un-potted submodules, making them easier to maintain, and a revised suitcase. However these late models are quite rare as their release coincided with ARP's final days.

This is in amazing physical and operational condition. Possibly one of the best you will find. I had this cleaned and checked serviced and new bushing in the keyboard.

Includes original Manuals , brochures . Arp decal, patch list , factory patch tablets (lots) . For those that want the best of the real original. Also has original power cord and some original patch cables. Normal mini plugs can be used."

Modal 002 review & sound demo

video by synthlegends

"Modal Electronics review, going through and sound demo.

The Modulus 002 was the first synthesizer from the new established company Modal Electronics from Bristol, UK in 2015. The frist batches named Modulus 002. Because of legal issues the name changed to Modal 002.

It was developed mainly by Paula Maddox, who wanted to set the spirit oft he PPG wave in the next century. The Modal 002 uses NCO oscillators, which have a variable sample rate and sound more alive than DSP. Beside that the Signal Path ist full analog alongside with a marvelous sounding ladder filter.

Because of bad marketing and a very steep price the Modal 002 was not very successful when relaunched. Also there were a lot of bugs in the software and some audio issues which caused a bad publicity in forums. Meanwhile the 002 is grown up, the last big update was relaunched in 2019.

For me the 002 is the real sucessor of the PPG wave, it really sounds astonishing. It is one of the best hybrid synthesizers which have been ever bulit. This is my opinion. Unfortunately you can’t get this synth new from Modal Electronics, just on the used market from time to time.

I recorded the 002 directly with two audio jacks in a stereo track into my interface. There is no mastering, external FX and compression. In some patches you can listen to internal FX. The patches I used I got from a great youtube fellow, Sean Christopher Dockery (Quantum 7 on gearslutz). Thank you very much, Sean for those great patches.

The first 15 minutes of this video I go through most functions and parameters. In the second part beginning from 15:20​ I play a bunch of sounds, first mostly pads, later on leads, basses, bells and organ style sounds.

I hope, you enjoy this video. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask my in the comments."
