Roland JX3P versus System 8 (JX3P Plug out)

video by MIDERA

"I wasn’t going to share this comparison... but I guess I put the work in so I might as well. I don’t think my comparison is great at all. In fact, I think it’s terrible. But if you have a JX3P and you’re thinking “I want to get a System 8 to replace it,” maybe this video will help? But probably not. Honestly, the Jupiter 8 plug out is WAY closer in tone to the JX3P. The problem though is that the JP doesn’t do metal sync (maybe there’s a way to get it?).

I went through a bunch of settings, trying to match up the sounds. I was mostly frustrated by this process - so if you're really interested in watching, cool, but otherwise - I wouldn't blame you for wanting to skip the pedantry and poor implementation of a comparison. I got confused many times trying to get them to sound the same. Bottom line: They don't really sound the same at all, the JX3P is much brighter and punchier. I did slightly tweak the internal filters a few years ago, that could explain why? But I had to drop the cutoff by like 20% to get them to sound the same.

Maybe my JX3P is more like a Jupiter hahahaha. Or maybe I just suck at making comparison videos."

Sequential Pro 3 Synth - Bass Demo

video by Creative Spiral

"I like big bass, and I cannot lie... The Sequential Pro 3 delivers a wide variety of bass tones, with the three great sounding VCF filters. It features a Moog Transistor Ladder style filter, an Oberheim SEM 2-Pole style state variable filter, and the Prophet OTA 4-Pole filter. The Pro 3 also features a wide variety of gain staging options which allow you to go anywhere from clean sub bass tone, up to gnarly overdriven or distorted tones.

I've designed about 60 bass patches over the past nine months. This video shows about 30 of them... with a few crossover lead tones mixed in that have substantial low end.

If you're interested in getting these patches, I have some sound sets available for the Pro 3 on Sellfy:

I also have some Free Patches available for download on my PresetPatch profile:"

Vintage 1960s Raven Piano Bass Combo Organ Bass Synth

via this auction

Only one other featured back in 2010.

"Up for auction is a very rare 1960's Raven Piano Bass Synth.

These were made in Japan in the late 60s. They made two versions. The Rheem Kee bass and this Raven Version. They were both made by the same company in Japan. The Raven version being the harder to find version that was distributed in Canada.

This unit is from a closed down music store and has been in storage since the mid 80's.. Cosmetically the unit looks stunning. Pretty much no wear. Looks very nice!"

Enhancia Neova and SE-02 test

video by Robert Saint John

"Brief first go with the Neova ring MIDI controller from Enhancia Music, paired with the Roland/Studio Electronics SE-02 analogue monosynth and the K-25m controller (backed by the JUPITER-Xm for extra mood). The ring makes up for the K-25’s lack of mod and pitch, and I even use it to trigger some crossmod at the end."

Jupiter 6 acid trip

video by zack dagoba

"Keith had warned me about the presets on the Jupiter 6 he lent me whilst fixing my one. This was pimped by legendary UK space-rock band Hawkwind. These presets were programmed by bassist/keyboardist Alan Davey, presumably after dropping a few tabs. They show off what a totally amazing and weird synth the JP6 actually is"
