DIY analog synth project ( New synth on the block..... The Ad-vantage 02m)

video by Adamski A.

"Hey guys here is an in depth look at my new DIY synthesizer prototype. Again this has pretty much discrete circuitry aside from the obvious operational amplifiers and a very few operational transcondcutance amplifier ics. This was totally unrehearsed and recorded dry so, I do hope its clear and understandable enough.
Please make sure you like share and comment as much as possible this all helps boost the channels views and exposure etc.

Adam ;-)"

"Road-driving tune, using some stock footage of amazing Iceland.

Gear used: 5U modular, JX8P, Electribe MX, Hydrasynth, Microbrute, sequenced with Roland MC50 Reverb and some delay on the Soundcraft mixer - main output recorded in Logic.
Just a touch of EQ and compression et voila."

And some pics of various models via Pierre Jean Tardiveau's Insgagram. Very steampunk in design. See the pics for features. It appears Olivier Grall is playing the SynTesla IV above.

RAIN ON THE WINDOWSILL // Modular Synth Ambient w/ Gotharman's anAmoNo X #TTNM​


"It's raining outside, so I put my Gotharman anAmoNo X modular synth on the windowsill and played some ambient bloops over nature's sound bed. My iPhone microphone is sending the rain audio into the anAmoNo X, where it's processed by the analog filter boards and digital granular synth effects. I then trigger digital synth sounds with the trigger buttons and the internal sequencer."

1980s Yamaha SK-20 Symphonic Ensemble Vintage Strings, Synthesizer & Organ

via this auction, also on Reverb

Hershery's style Yamaha Combo Keyboard sticker. Note the "Sweet 1981".

"1980's Roland SK-20 Symphonic Ensemble vintage organ and synthesizer in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. Fully serviced here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Yamaha boasts dedicated synthesizer, organ, and string sections that can be independently mixed together. Featuring a five octave range, the SK-20 also includes a Leslie simulator (with dedicated output), vibrato, attack and sustain rocker switches, a slider for 'brilliance' and a one-octave transpose switch. The keyboard was also one of the first to utilize a form of Yamaha's FM technology.

The Organ section offers a full range of stop levers from 1' to 16', percussion levers with adjustable decay, and controls for overall sustain, brilliance and decay. Very B3-esque in its tonal intent, the organ can also be augmented with Vibrato and Tremolo. The Preset String section is simple yet lush, and arguably the most desirable subset of this vintage keyboard.

The Poly-Synth section is a 7-note polyphonic synthesizer with basic filter, pitch, envelope, and portamento controls. It features two (detunable) oscillators per voice, making it ideal for thick pads. This section features a built-in sustain and the Tremolo and Ensemble chorus effects also apply to this section.

Cosmetically, this SK-20 is an extremely well-kept example with some very minor wear on the wood veneered side panels and some scuffing on the bottom of the enclosure which still retains its large rubber feet. The face of the synth is extremely clean, with bold graphics and all original slider caps and knobs intact."

Marlin SX2000 Synth

via this auction

"In quite good condition. End cheeks have been replaced and a socket added to the rear connecting the keyboard contacts as some of the keys don't contact well (maybe need contacts sorting out),so in theory another keyboard could be used. I had intended making an interface to render this MIDI controllable,which almost worked. The socket is the remnant of that attempt and connects to the keys and the contact bar. The presets work and the synth section,though some sliders are better than others.
