Miami Vice and Melrose Place Oberheim DPX-1 Vintage Sample Player?

via this auction

The SN appears to be 750645 which was listed back in 2017 here - same marks on the back. Note the description for the new listing states this was owned by Tim Truman with a note on it being used on Miami Vice and Melrose Place, but there's no mention of that in the previous post.

"Here is a fine example of the classic DPX-1. It can playback various sample formats such as from the Ensoniq Mirage, Emulator II, etc. This unit has been owned by Tim Truman originally, composer of the theme to Melrose Place among many other pieces of music for TV/FILM.

The following upgrades have been installed:

- PSU recapped by Andrei Kudryavtsev
- Floppy drive replaced with HXC Rev F floppy emulator
- OS upgraded to latest version

The PSU on the DPX is notorious for blowing capacitors, so having your DPX recapped is an absolute must. With these upgrades you can be confident that your DPX will give you years of trouble-free use. I'm including some of Tim Truman's personal sound disks. The 5.25" floppies are included as-is, while the 3.5" floppies have been converted into images to use with the emulator.

Also, I have put many other sample collections onto the SD card such as the Ensoniq Mirage library. Everything works 100 percent on this and sounds great. Please feel free to message me any questions about it, thanks!"

Evolved Vol 3 - Patches 26 to 50 - Sequential Prophet 6

video by GEOSynths

"Out 15th March 2021.
It's been almost 2 years since I brought out Evolved Vol 2 for the Sequential Prophet 6 Synthesizer and wasn't sure I'd do another, however Sequential have updated the Prophet 6 with the 'Vintage Knob' feature, from the Prophet 5 Rev 4 Synth. After making a 3rd Bank for the Sequential 0B6, it was obvious to do another Bank for the Prophet 6.

In this set I've also focused a little more on making Patches using Osc 2 as a Modulation Source and delving deeper. While there is the odd "Vintage" patch, it's more about getting new Synthesizer sounds."

62HP EP5: 4 Voice iPad Sequenced Synth

video by Perfect Circuit

"This 62HP system is a four voice synthesizer with effects that is designed to be sequenced by an iPad with USB, but you could sequence it with any USB midi.

The synth voice is made with the Recovery Effects Jupiter Spirits quad VCO, an Intellijel Morgasmatron dual filter, XAOC Zadar quad envelope/function generator and two Intellijel 1U Dual VCAs for 4 VCAs total. There are two effects modules, the WMD/SSF DPLR dual delay and the Erica Synths Dual FX which has two DSP effect channels. The USB to CV is handled by the Noise Engineering Univer Iter. The iPad is used to both sequence the four synth voices with the Fuge Machine app, and to create the drums with Ruismaker.

Noise Engineering Blog: Patching bursts with CV over length & melodic bursts

video by Noise Engineering

"From the blog:
If you don’t have a dedicated burst generator in your system (or, like me, you just always need more bursts!), we can really easily patch one together. All we need is a clock (or LFO), a DC-coupled VCA, and a decay envelope. Patch your clock/LFO into the audio input of the VCA, the decay envelope into the CV input of the VCA, and voila, you’ve got a burst generator. Trigger the envelope to create your burst! The length of the decay envelope controls how many triggers are in your burst, the clock/LFO controls the rate. Easy!

Here, we’re using Pons Asinorum as our envelope generator, with our main clock as the VCA’s input so our bursts are in time with the rest of our patch. Since Pons Asinorum is voltage controllable, we can sequence the number of triggers in our bursts, too."

Blog: Patching melodic bursts

video by

"From the blog:
The whole idea for this patch came by way of an email from our friend Arthur Hnatek. He wanted to trigger a whole sequence from a single hit on his extremely cool drum-controlled modular system. I suggested the patch in our last video. But because Arthur wanted more than just sequenced bursts, we swapped in a trigger sequencer as the input, and used that to advance a pitch sequencer as well as to trigger a voice. That would mean that from a single trigger, a complete trigger and CV sequence would be generated, giving some really interesting performance possibilities.

Let’s give that a shot: here, instead of using a clock as the VCA input as in our last video, we’re using Bin Seq, and we’re feeding it into Mimetic Digitalis’s N input so we get a four-part CV sequence to modulate our voice, as well as a trigger pattern. Along with triggering our decay envelope, our input trigger is multed to the BS’s Measure input, and the MD’s Origin input so that we get the same pattern each time our burst is generated."

"The 'Boys' loved their Fairlight Fairlight CMI. QasarBeach was captured with no edits, overdub or added effects to create this new mix of Heart.
'QasarBeach CMI IIz' is a Fairlight CMI simulator written from the ground up that does an amazing job of recreating the user interface and functionality of the original hardware, while adding many useful improvements that makes workflow faster and more intuitive."

Discussion on Muffwiggler:​

Introductory video. Lots of talking and discussions of strategies and usage in systems.
Be sure to use the navigation/progress bar to jump to sections of interest for repeated viewing and pausing. I left many snapshot/screengrabs up for only 5 seconds as the video is already quite lengthy and one can easily pause upon what one wishes to see in greater detail.

More in the way of actual use coming up in next videos. I'll show it in my 24-panel system and then either my 10-panel or 4-panel (currently out on loan). We'll go through the pages that are served up by the WPM, etc.

[b]Answers to a handful of likely questions:[/b]
Q: How does it work?
A: It is a WiFi server and serves up (currently) two web pages that are accessed via a web browser. I've tested it on a Mac, iPad Pro, iPhone6s, and my ancient iPhone 3GS. The 3GS renders the main page strangely (fault of the browser due to its age and lack of updates) but it does work. Any cheapo Android should work and Studio.h have tested a few of them.

Q: Will it work with v2 (non-Primo) 200e systems?
A: Yes, there is a switch for this shown at 01:37​

Q: Is it possible to change the log-in information?
A: Yes, the WiFi name and password can be changed. I'll demonstrate this in the next video. There is also a switch, at 1:37​, showing that the system can be made entirely 'Open'. Live dangerously!

Q: Will this enable preset management of my 208 variant?
A: No. None of the 208 units are e-series compatible. They simply don't have the hardware onboard for e-series knob positions, slider positions, patching, levels, etc.
However, for the Easel-K owner, you've just level-upped your 223e!

Q: Will it coexist with existing Buchla Preset Managers (206e/225e).
A: Yes, as shown in this very video plus the leveraging of Preset Management Strobe Mode. See 04:00​

Q: How much does it cost? How do I order one?
A: $400 USD and drop Studio.h a line on:​

Bravo, Studio.h!"
