Liquid Light Show Song/JAM by michael nervous

video by michael nervOus

"Ambient song using pipe organ, modular moog, Juno & jp8000 as well as an electribe wave on ipad.

Visuals and song title come from an old practice of using paints and oils on an overhead projector. I do have video of my bandmate and I doing this recently but I wanted to have a digital in sync version for this track.

Fugue Machine is controlling the synths but setup with each playhead going to a different synth.
The 1st playhead of the first instance of two fugue machines controls sunrizer (forward playhead, divided by 8) with the preset: AI- Chime Era, gain down a bit and release up a bit.
The 2nd playhead controls korg electribe wave (reverse playhead, divided by 4 and octave lower) preset 12 sin width add decay and release times.
The 3rd playhead controls Talunolx synth (forward then reverse, diveded by 16 and -1 pitch) preset FN-Analog Lead- FN.
The 4th playhead controls Moog Model 15 (reverse then forward, divided by 8 and 1 octave higher) preset fx birds
The second instance of fugue machine is a duplicate copy of the first instance with some notes removed but the other setting are the same as the 1st fugue machine.
All 4 playheads control icathedral organ preset mixtur Brilliance

Sunrizer gets cloud reverb set to the max
Electribe Wave gets mixbox Chorus pad preset (some altering)
Talunolx & Model 15 get mixbox Boards of Italy preset (some alteriing)
Icatherdral get mixbox Piano Friendly Widener

WERSI CX-2 (1984)

video by Synthesizer Home

"Ultra rare analog accompaniment unit with digital 8-bit drum machine mande in Germany."

via this auction

"Extremely rare Wersi Wersimatic CX2. The CX2 is a combination of a digital drumcomputer and preset synthesizer/organ. The drumcomputer section consists of 54 preset rhytms, but it is also possible to compose your own rhytms by using its composer (static/real time composing) and the 14 different drum sounds available. It also has accent.

The accompaniment section has a bass (guitar, synth, tuba), chord (e-piano, guitar, wah guitar, strings, organ), and arpeggio section (brass, clarinet, banjo, bells, strings, single notes). When the drumsection plays the accompaniment section can be triggered by pressing keys. It automatically follows the rhythms. However, you can also make your own BASS solo, chords, and arpeggio patterns !!

This is a great instrument for modding. SSM2044 chips are installed on two of the cards, and a filter/resonance function can be easily added. Other possible modifications my be separate outs and volume pots for drum sounds and accompaniment, clock synq, etc. I prefered to leave it in original condition and let the next owner do this if preferred.

The Wersi CX2 comes as seen on the pictures with technical documents in German.

Condition: Great condition with light traces of use (see the original pics and video)."

Cool overhead light on top for playing in the dark. I was wondering how many synths had something similar and the Moog Voyager came to mind. It has a gooseneck lamp you can connect on top.

UVI Focus | Thorus - Polyphase Modulator

video by UVI

"Delivering exceptionally deep modulation and an amazingly clear and detailed sound, Thorus is a versatile, easy-to-use effect with modern controls and a fast and intuitive interface.

Thorus is at 50% off ($39/39€ instead of $79/79€) until April 19th, 2021.

Thorus evolved in our pursuit of the perfect chorus algorithm. Building on a state-of-the-art chorus model combined with advancements made in the development of Sparkverb and Falcon, Thorus can create exceptionally deep modulation with an amazingly clear and detailed sound. Combine that with an attractive and easy-to-use interface and you’ve got a very compelling candidate for your next high-quality, go-to modulator.

More Voices, More Choices
As opposed to a typical 2 or 4-voice chorus implementations Thorus is designed around a variable 8-voice architecture, allowing both subtle and extreme modulation with exceptional transparency throughout the entire parameter range. Use 2 voices for more pronounced modulation or crank it up to 8 to blur the lines for a thick and immersive effect.

Reflexive Refinement
In addition to providing dynamic voice control Thorus includes a number of filtering tools that can be used to further refine your sound. A simple click-drag in the visualizer allows you to tame or boost highs, filter lows to keep the bass tight or add a harmonic edge to your sonic profile to help it stand out in the mix.

Thorus provides two operational modes; ‘Standard’ provides a typical sound stage reflective of the input material, where ‘Wide’ results in an expanded stereo image that can be utilized to tremendous effect. Create immersive, mind-bending sounds and freely move through them with the Speed and Depth controls.

Creature Comforts
Thorus included presets provide starting points suitable for a wide range of material from synths and drums to acoustic instruments, guitar or vocals. An A/B preset comparison switch and effect mix control allow for no-risk experimenting and easily dialing in the perfect amount of sonic mojo on your tracks.

Evolution of a classic
A classic effect with a long history, chorus modulation isn’t often regarded as being particularly innovative however, with Thorus we’ve attempted to push that needle. The result is a versatile, easy-to-use and stunningly lush effect that offers a clarity and depth unlike any other.

62HP Pingable Percussion Party Box - Super Synthesis

video by Perfect Circuit

"In this episode of the 62HP series, we’ve loaded up our Intellijel Palette case with a plethora of cool modules from Super Synthesis, alongside a few other key modules to build out a Pingable Percussion instrument. For our purposes, a 'ping' is a gate or trigger signal that will be used for things like triggering internal envelopes or resetting the phase of clock rates.

The centerpiece of this system is the PHRSR from Super Synthesis, a two-channel phrase recorder that captures knob movements in sequences up to 16 steps in length. One thing which makes this module unique is that the external clock input doesn’t override the internal clock, but rather it performs a hard sync reset that can be manipulated to create swing, syncopations, and other metric transformations. Also from Super Synthesis, we’re running dual 2OPFM modules for percussive FM sounds, the VCAR for CV controllable attack-release envelopes, and the ISO two-band DJ-style EQ.

We’ve also chosen a few multi-functional modules to give our compact Eurorack system a bit more versatility. The ever-flexible Ornament and Crime, malleable Pique from After Later Audio (based upon Peaks from Mutable Instruments), and the Milky Way multi-effects module by help this little box pack a punch well above its weight. For sequencing, we’re relying upon the trusty SQ1 from Korg, and a special edition PO-133 Street Fighter Pocket Operator from Teenage Engineering processed by the Ritual Electronics Guillotine adds some additional sonic accompaniment.
