Multivox MX-3000 Polyphonic Synthesizer SN 856031

via this auction

You can find additional posts featuring the Multivox MX-3000 including demos here.

"This one is going to need to a lot of tlc but it’s super rare... 'The Multivox MX-3000 is actually a combination of 3 synths in one case:
-A monophonic Bass-synth. This synth is capable of 3 kinds of bass-sounds: soft, medium & sharp, and only playable on the lowest 2 octaves. It has portamento with adjustable speed and you can choose out of 3 types of preprogrammed EGs:
Only the Release is adjustable.

-A polyphonic (String)Synth. This synth has a polyphony of 61 and contains 8 presets which you can alter with the onboard filters. Presets are: Soft Bass (with adjustable volume), Wood, Brass, Reed, String, Piano, Honky Tonk & Harpsichord. The last 3 presets are velocity sensitive which is adjustable. The polysynth contains an LFO for VCO as well for VCF.

The VCO contains a glide/bend function which can be switched off and LFO-modulation with delay is possible. The VCF contains CutOff, Resonance, EG-intensity and LFO Modulation. There are 2 preprogrammes EG-settings, ADR & ASR. You can also bypass these settings and use your own Attack and Decay/Release settings. Also present are a Ensemble-mode which thickens the sound and a Fullrotor which is actually a kind of Phaser. Speed and intensity are adjustable.

-A monophonic lead synth This synth is only playable on the upper 3 octaves. The VCO contains of sawtooth, square, pulse, triangle waves and noise. Portamento is possible and the waves can be transposed to 3 octaves (Low, Medium, High). LFO-modulation is also possible. The VCF contains an ADSR, CutOff, Resonance, EG-intensity (for the VCF-ADSR) and LFO Modulation. The VCA contains an ADSR, LFO-Modulation and a Selektor which can be switched from the normal ADSR to Repeat or Hold. The LFO is available in sawtooth, sinus and square.

Every section has it's own volume and output an can be switched on or off, so it's possible to use all 3 sections at once. All in all makes this synth a truly unique one, both in it's possibilities as in the sounds.

Comments About the Sounds:
Screaming monophonic leads are possible, but this synth produces also the coolest and heaviest bass-sounds and also has that famous JMJ-strings.Killer synth.'"

Finger style with Just friends

"Been experimenting with finger style patterns on the modular using crow driving just friends for another project but somewhere along the line the script turned into this little piece

The patterns did sound more like finger style playing on a guitar earlier today but like everything I pushed and messed about with them to see where they would go"

Yamaha CS15D Analogue Mono Synth SN 1060

via this auction

"Closely related to the CS15, featuring the same twin oscillators, VCF chips and ADSR. Key difference is that the CS15D has the first voice assigned to preset sounds, and the second either presets or Manual. The manual setting of voice 2 combines with the presets on voice one can give some great effects. The case is also far more robust than the CS15, featuring wood end cheeks.

This one is in really nice condition. The end cheeks are pretty much perfect and there is very few imperfections in the front panel paintwork. There are some little lumps in the paint on the top surface (one picture tries to show these) but these really are minor and you only notice when looking up close.

It works fine in all modes and has only minor crackles when the Oscillator mixer slider, or volume control are operated while playing. All other controls are pretty much silent. I made some repairs to the power supply board and replaced a few of the signal line capacitors a few years ago and I have also swapped the Japanese transformer for a 230v one (professionally done, I'm an electronic engineer)."

Korg VC10 Analogue Polyphonic 20 Band Vocoder Synth SN 160904

via this auction

"Its in truly super condition with hardly any marks on the paintwork, no cracks in the end panels and no damage to the keys. It works nicely and features its original gooseneck, although the mic has been changed (was missing when I bought it)."

"Swiss-made monophonic analog synthesizer / sound module with 1VCO + Sub VCO specifications controlled by Roland type CV / Gate. It can be used not only as a stand-alone analog synth but also as a filter for external signals. The sound is fat because it doesn't fit the compact size!"

ROLAND SH-1000 Synthesizer SN 367121

via this auction

"Roland's FIRST synthesizer was the SH-1000. Released in 1973, and well received all round the world, at the time. Compact, rugged, reliable, easy to understand and play, it brought the wonder of synthesized music to many young musicians.....Many ended up on top of home organs, so they seldom became gig-trashed.... 10 presets, a selction of synth sounds, but having live control of filter/resonance/modulation/sample & hold/pink or white noise, ADSR shaping and glide, lots of squidgy synth sounds can be manufactured to taste...... The synth has had a full service by our pro tech. Everything works 100%, and all keys work properly (with no double-triggering)."

Like Wish You Were Here meets JMJ.


video by Mindburner

"The OSCar is a fabulous monosynth designed and built by Chris Huggett. My machine had been plagued with issues from day one. A major problem was the highly unreliable start up. The synth would not 'boot' and many power off/on cycles were needed to get it to work.

TAUNTEK have a new MIDI PCB and Operating System with may new features. I hoped this may fix my synth and make it useable aging. Here I detail my install of one of the first version of the Firmware.

The PCB needs to be built but many of the parts are readily found.

More details can be found at TAUNTEK
Special thanks to the folks on the OSCar freelists group.

Video for information only. A qualified synth tech is always recommended for synth repair."

Farfisa TK80 demo track

"All sounds from the Farfisa, some delay added.
The farfisa TK80 is a cheap digital 80's keyboard, with midi.
very limited and noisy, but some nice sounds."

Third Wave

video by Martin Peters

"This track began as a melody I had in my head during walking the dog. I entered the melody in the Cirklon sequencer and added some accompanying sequences. Add here you see and hear the result.

The track starts with the bass on the Modular and the melody on the Tom Oberheim SEM. After that the rhythmic noises from the Plaits through Clouds are added. The sequences on the Korg ARP Odyssey and a voice on the Modular with the MOS-LAB Kobol VCO's are introduced. And in comes the Roland JD-800 with a strings-like pad. An improvised solo is played on the Minimoog.

In the second part double-time sequences of another Modular voice and the Mopho are added. Chords are played on the Polymoog and again an improvised solo on the Minimoog.

This track is recorded live to multi-track and mixed in Studio One afterwards. Only tracks from the live recording are used.

This track is also available on Bandcamp:"

E-MU Ultra Sampler - Demo #16

video by St0neOfficialChannel

"All presets I made on E-MU E4XT Ultra. E4XT sequenced from DAW (midi edition and midi automation). After the recording (track by track) was used lightweight compression/limiting on sum and nothing else. Please use 360p or higher for better sound quality."

VAI 49 Elgam Carousel - Farfisa Syntorchestra

video by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Great fun with the classic Italian Auto-comp machine and mono/poly keyboard.
With some external help from a Binson Echorec 2, a Schulte Compact Phasing A, the mysterious Emthree Pulsatron multi-effect and some delay."

VAI 8 - Siel Cruise - Roland Rhythm 77

video by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Siel Cruise is a quirky Mono synth / Divide Down String and brass synth combo from 1981. These can generate some neat sounds, especially with external help: here the mono bass gets some lush phasing from the Mu-tron Phasor II, with some added Space Echo repeats to double the speed.
The "piano" phrases are going through the Vermona DEG 500 Digital Delay, a cheap rack effect most likely produced a few years after the Siel, great modulation on these so we'll be using this one quite a bit from now on."
