Moog One Demos by Orano Music

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.


1. Moog One 16 - My take on Tangerine Dream's "Love on a real train"
Again, just playing around in first couple of weeks owning the Moog One, if you like a single Synth unit that will take you on a Journey, they do not come much better than this.
2. Moog One - Has a Big Sound! ... A Very BIG Sound!
Preset made from scratch, detuned oscillators, throwing some FM into the mix. this uses synth 1 and synth 2 on the Moog One, each Synth Panned left / Right to give more stereo Width to the patch.
3. Moog One 16 - Lost in another patch
More Playing around in getting lost in patch creation, by far the most enjoyable programming experience I've had in any synth.
4. Moog One - Attempting CS80 Chariots of Fire
CS80 is legendary for good reason, its the best I could get without sitting for Hours analysing the original and tweaking the moog to try. I put a little beat detune on modulation wheel for the 3 oscillators used to create the main lead synth, it was getting close, but not close enough :) Everything with exception of Piano was sequenced live from Moog One 16.
5. Moog One - Preset Building - JMJ Oxygen
Another Preset Programmed on the Moog One 16, I have thrown various challenges at the synth in the first 10 days of owning and it has yet to fail at recreation of most sonic challenges I have tried.
6. War of the Ones
War of the Worlds Inspired Patch, using the Moog one 16.
7. Moog One - A Variation of Sonic Capabilities
This is a short vid, (no talking) just running through a few of the patches I have made in the first week of owning the synth.
8. Moog One - First Day
My First play on the moog one 16, absolutely loving it so far! no processing with this at all, straight from synth to soundcard. Onboard effects in the Moog utilised,
9. Moog One 16 - Arpeggio - Sound design.
3 Oscillators, 1 Synced, and Synced Osc is also used for FM. Mod wheel Opens Dual filters and also adjusts Filter EG Release,
Stereo delay and Eventide Verb used, no external processing, All Moog! :)

Yamaha SK-30 symphonic keyboard film soundtrack demo

video by MIDERA

"Maybe I’m crazy - but I think this is one of the most interesting instruments I’ve ever played. The paraphonic parts don’t really subtract anymore, they’re interesting and just do different things (I originally recorded a part really digging into that, but it didn’t sound good because of my playing skills so I gave up on it).

I’m honestly shocked about how little this is talked about. The aftertouch is phenomenal and one of my favorite parts. To be able to play a pad AND an expressive mono part is really just a lot of fun.

What, there’s like two threads on GS about the SK series? Like. Nothing. This is not a legendary instrument. It just looks like one. Whatever, it made it obtainable by me, which I’ll take I guess.

Yeah I know I’ve smothered it in reverb and delay, but I just don’t care. I think it sounds good either way, I just prefer it with FX. You can find other demos without it if you must.

Anyway, I just got carried away. The first 4 minutes aren’t actually that good or interesting anyway. At the end is where I ended up having the most fun, throwing the mono part into “hold” mode.

What an all around fantastic string synthesizer. I’ve realized even the SK-20 must be interesting because you can almost treat the paraphonic poly synth part as a lead at times, and then it can also do pads... but I still think the SK-30 is the one to go with.

Ok, I’m out."

Steiner - V.C. Hi-Lo Pass Resonant Filter & V.C. Trigger Generator - Prototypes 1975

via this auction

"FS: N.A. Steiner (Pre-Steiner Parker) - V.C. Hi-Lo Pass Resonant Filter and V.C. Trigger Generator - Prototypes

Here is another unusual listing from my collection. 2 very early synthesizer modules designed and hand built by Nyle Steiner in 1974 or 75 before the formation of Steiner Parker.. The Filter is perhaps THE ORIGINAL resonant multimode VCF designed by Steiner for his Synthasystem Modular System (also used in later used in other designs such as the Synthacon).

I have owned these pieces for almost 20 years, they are unmodified and have never have been repaired.. both still work and the filter sounds incredible.

This is a very rare chance to pick up a piece of vintage audio history, which you can also use musically!"

Stalker by MATTHS (Official Music Video)

video by MATTHS

"MATTHS present his first release of 2021 with 'Stalker', a dark, brooding, ambient-electronica excursion. This is a single take with no edits at all.

MATTHS is releasing one track every month for the whole of 2021 which are available to buy/stream at​ or subscribe and receive hours or music and a new release every month.

The video for 'Stalker' focuses on the movement and combinations of fluids, mixing and moving as if to represent those chemical releases inside our bodies. Sometimes these concoctions bring us light and other times darkness.

Overlaying the dynamic visuals is the track itself which plays on the repetition of the same melody over and over again, but each time you hear it, you hear it differently. It can be easy to misinterpret or misunderstand something no matter how many times you hear it. Just which melody and which visual is the truth here?

Available on all streaming platforms later in 2021."


Electronic Music Experimentation in the Films of Alfred Hitchcock

Watch along as Joe discusses the music in his films and how electronic experimentation was explored to be the sound of some iconic characters and bizarre situations."

Polymode Synthesizer | Synthesis Signal Flow

video by Cherry Audio

"In this video, we'll be taking a detailed look at the unique multiple-parallel filter signal flow of Cherry Audio's Polymode Synthesizer virtual instrument.

This unique virtual instrument brings the sound of a classic retro synth to your favorite DAW and works with FL Studio, Cubase, Ableton, Bitwig, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, or even as a standalone for your next live performance in VST, AU, and AAX formats.

The Polymode Synthesizer is inspired by the groundbreaking Moog Polymoog synthesizer. One of the world’s first polyphonic synthesizers, its unique multiple parallel filter implementation and mod routings give it a sound like no other synth.

Cherry Audio’s Polymode Synthesizer sidesteps all of the drawbacks of the original instrument and massively expands its capabilities. With a streamlined user interface and immense modulation capabilities, Polymode sets a new standard for animated, sonically evolving string, pad, and choral tones."
