The Gentle Touch Vol 4 Demo - Sequential Prophet 12 Patches by BoB SwanS

"Another pack of Prophet 12 patches programmed by BoB SwanS.

When Sequential announced at the start of the year that they had finally decided to retire the Prophet 12 Module I was inspired by all the online chatter and tributes and jumped into making another bank of patches.

As usual quite a few of them use per note modulation and Mod wheel for movement and most of them are not your usual bread and butter patches, But you probably know that already.

99 patches, Including splits, stacks and single patches.
This time I decided I wanted to go a bit further with the Linear FM and Waveshape\Morph side of things and made lots of evolving pads and keys for you to drift off with, I included a couple of Arp's and lead synths just to even things out a bit.

Available now via Sellfy…r-prophet-12-vol-4/

Discount code "sequential" available for one week
This brings the price down to £10
Full price will go up to £14.50

ARP 2600 + Dual LFO Sequence Demo

video by O.Z. Hall

"My friend James Carr built a cabinet for Eurorack modules to fit beneath my Korg ARP 2600 FS. It has two rows of 126 HP. The size is the same as three rows of 84 HP, like the Doepfer 9U cabinet.
I'm demoing a technique for generating a sequence by mixing the output of two LFOs. The output is quantized for easy tuning. The trigger input to the quantizer controls when the quantizer output voltage is updated.
I hope you enjoy this demo."

Modal SKULPTsynth SE is Shipping Internationally

– 4-voice, go-anywhere virtual-analogue synthesiser with MPE support is now available from Modal Electronics stockists globally –

Bristol, UK • 10th May 2021. Modal Electronics, a leading global synthesiser manufacturer, has just confirmed the immediate availability of the SKULPTsynth SE from all Modal resellers internationally. Fusing a slim form factor with traditionally coloured, black and white touch keypads, easier to read front panel descriptors and improved built quality, SKULPTsynth SE provides the ultimate platform to create without limitation, wherever your creativity takes you.

Under the hood, SKULPTsynth SE features a next-generation synth engine powered by dual WAVE groups per voice, each with four oscillators (a total of 8 oscillators per voice) that allow users to meticulously craft flavourful sonic fundamentals. Timbre adjustment is a breeze thanks to SKULPT SE’s state-variable 2-pole filters that morph from low pass through to bandpass and high pass. With its resonance feature, it picks out rich harmonics at high resonance levels. Shape your sound for optimum articulation with three envelopes that provide extensive control of the dynamics and expressive output of the sound. Finally, two LFOs, one global and one polyphonic, can be synced to internal or external tempo, and the integrated delay and distortion effects give even more options to craft your signature sound.

For extended expressive capability, SKULPT SE supports MPE and is the most affordable MPE hardware synthesiser available on the market today. For creators seeking new musical ways to perform with synthesiser sounds, this MPE support, fused with the integrated real-time sequencer and arpeggiator, are the perfect platforms for immersive, expressive jam sessions.

Packed with 127 all new expertly curated patches, SKULPT SE offers a vast library of contemporary sounds applicable to all genres. Moreover, it is fully backward compatible with the original SKULPTsynthesiser, providing access to the full back catalogue of patches available from Modal’s website and 3rd party sound designers. Managing and creating patches couldn’t be simpler courtesy of the MODALapp, available for all major computer and mobile platforms as a free download from the Modal website.

In tandem with the retail availability of SKULPTsynth SE, Modal Electronics are also releasing a SKULPTsynthesiser firmware update featuring a raft of workflow enhancements plus poly-chain support in mixed configurations with the SKULPTsynth SE.The new Firmware is available via MODALapp.

Powered by USB or 6 x AA batteries, SKULPTsynth SE is the ultimate synth weapon for music creation in every scenario, whether it is in the studio, DJ live sets, DAW-less jams or on the road.

SKULPTsynth SE is available immediately via wide network of authorised Modal retailers globally. Suggested retail prices are £169.99 (UK, incl. VAT), 199.99 € (incl. 20% VAT) and $199.99 (US MAP).

TBX2 Microtonal Tuning Machine Box Handmade in Germany

2018 videos by Aaron Andrew Hunt. The TBX2 is from Hi-Pi Instruments. They also made a TBX1 MIDI Tuning Box.

Check out the foot pedal input label on back.

"Only 100 were manufactured several years ago. With this device you can plug into your computer (USB to USB) and play microtonal music after preloading your tunings.

TBX2 outperforms its predecessor (TBX1) in every way. This faster, smaller, sturdier second-generation device not only retunes GM (multichannel) synths, but also monophonic synths, MTS synths, and even proprietary sysex synths. If you thought the 512 tunings TBX1 offered was a lot, try 8,192. That's almost twice the size of the Scala Archive. Each input channel can be assigned to a unique tuning table, providing full compatibility with multichannel controllers like MIDI guitars and MIDI organs, as well as microtonal controllers like the Tonal Plexus, Microzone, Axis 64, and Terpstra keyboards. Supports both MIDI DIN input, and USB-MIDI input. Navigate 40 presets hands-free. Edit existing tunings or create your own with Universal Tuning Editor (UTE) cross-platform software (free license included). Set up your tunings, upload them to the unit, plug in your controller and synth, and start making music. Ready for the stage, its built-in rechargeable battery will run for days. Firmware is user-upgradable via UTE, so features can be improved or added at any time, and you never have to worry about swapping out a chip.

Roland MC-202 w/ Mods & Manual

via this auction

"If you’re looking at this, you already know it sounds fantastic, the analog guts of an OG Roland SH101 with that beefy sub oscillator and searing peaky filter strapped to a digital sequencer - like a TB303 and then some.

This is the *original* vintage Groovebox, battery or mains powered, one careful owner (me!) since 1983. One of less than 2000 ever made, it’s a true Synthwave collectors’ piece, but also a totally great-sounding, intuitive analog mono beast of a synth for contemporary bass lines and leads. As used by Autechre, Aphex Twin, and many others, it is still able to sync and trigger modern modular gear, DAWs and digital hardware. Also generates Audio DIN Sync so can act as a master clock for other OG hardware like TR drum machines and the TB303, or generate a click track for tape multitrack overdubs.

Never gigged, excellent condition, some wear on the squishy rubber buttons only. Comes complete with original Roland manual, a PSU, and a professional factory-fitted mod (receipt available) by Kenton Electronics which adds 5 new Eurorack-style mini jack sockets to the right hand side of the unit, without disabling the existing rear panel sockets.

The mod allows modern CV/Gate sequencers like the BeatStep Pro to drive the onboard voice directly, bypassing the internal CPU to avoid the glitching which can occur if the cpu can’t keep up with modern gear going via the original inputs. Going beyond the original spec, the new sockets also allow you to use Control Voltage inputs to control the Portamento, Filter, and Accent settings for externally triggered sweeps, glides and 303-style tweaks.

The sophisticated (if old-school fiddly!) on board 2,600 step sequencer remains available too of course, capable of independently recording pitches and rhythms across both an external CV/Gate synth or modular rack and it’s own on board SH101 classic synth voice as two separate sequencer voices simultaneously, and sequences can be saved to audio cassette (!) or via a third party software (search for ‘MC202 Hack’, not included).

This is a classic, rare, connoisseur’s synth/sequencer from Roland’s Golden Age."

Casio SK-200 Sampling Keyboard

via this auction

"The SK-200 is quasi the 'flagship' among the Casio SK samplers. It offers a heap of functions and can save up to 4 samples (3.2 sec sampling time in total). Due to a complex multichip architecture, two accompaniment patterns, including drums, bass and chords, can also be programmed. The architecture is very open, thus allowing versatile tampering.

The SK-200 sounds very eighties-like with PCM drums and electro bass. The chords can be chosen from the melody presets and the samples can be played along with the beat in a fixed rhythm figure. With in total 4 separately adjustable volume controls occur many interesting possibilities."
