DSI Tetra Free Download Patches | Classic Custom Sounds Juno 60 | Sequential | Noisy Machines (2021)

video by Noisy Machines

"The sound of the Juno6 / 60/106 is incredible, even though it has a simple architecture, so I wondered, can my Tetra sound like a Juno? So I designed a few sounds, limiting myself to the characteristics of the Juno 6/60/106. No velocity, only 1 ADSR, one oscillator (with multiple shapes), 4-pole filter, one LFO, no aftertouch. It's even recorded in Mono and I have added a juno chorus 🎶

* Here you can download the sounds for your Tetra! Enjoy! 😎"

Using MakeNoise Modular Synths to Cover Radiohead

video by Koboto Music

"I used my MakeNoise Shared System (along with some other modules) to re-create my favorite Radiohead song. For the video aspect, I tried my best to demonstrate the various modular techniques that I used for this production. The main synth line was originally performed on the Prophet 5 so some tracking was needed on the MakeNoise to achieve a similar polyphony.

On an interesting note...

considering polyphony...

it took me 10 tracks of the MakeNoise to cover all of the overlapping notes in the synth line. So, it's essentially acting as a Prophet 10 as opposed to the Prophet 5 that was originally used. I found that the added polyphony adds a lot of "mud" to the mix and that the original sounds a lot cleaner to me. I guess there's an argument that "less is more" at times when it comes to polyphony in Synthesizers."

Roland JD-800 w/ Red Glue Keyboard Problem

via this auction

Take a look at the last pic. You can see the metal slats used as key weights resting below. The red glue Roland used to adhere them to the keys eventually melts in warmer weather. It stinks as well. That said, if this Roland is working well otherwise, this might be a good price for someone that wants to clean them. You can find videos online on how to do it.

via this auction

"TANZBAR 2, an analog drum sequencer by MFB that has a good reputation for analog drum synthesis and has been successful, has been greatly developed and has not been released in Japan.

In addition to each analog drum synthesizer part, it is equipped with an analog synthesizer part and a VOICE slot that can handle audio samples, making it a powerful total sequencer that is a hybrid of analog and digital. There is also a track that can control two external sound sources, and you can control the external sound source as the main sequencer.

Each part has its own bomb slider and mute button, allowing you to build grooves in real time. You can synchronize the clock with either USB MIDI or the MIDI terminal."

The ELKA Wilgamat 3

video by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Introducing the Elka Wilgamat 3

Probably from 1982 - if anyone has the exact production year - please get in touch :)

This is a 4 section analog auto- comp machine manufactured in Italy.
It was originally incorporated into organs but some stand-alone units we're made as well.
There's a predecessor was released in 1976 - the Elka Wilgamat - that has a quite similar layout and analog sound (if you'd like to know what sounds that one makes please search our channel for some videos we made previously)
Elka, to our knowledge at least, never released a Wilgamat 2.
The machine might not have the coolest individual sounds or rhythm-patterns, but summing up its different parts it can be a pretty fun machine to play and a great tool for us non-keyboardists to get started on new tracks.
It does not engage at all without the 2-octave keyboard, a compatible organ or foot pedal hooked up to it.
There are no MIDI or sync capabilities - although there is a "Clock Out" on the back - we're unsure if it actually works.
These have been known to be modified in a few different ways :
they have been MIDI-fied and clock synced - if you're interested in that please search the web."
