Hapynss | Roland D-50 somberwave

video by MIDERA

"My thoughts on the Roland D-50:

I will probably update it. I find the navigation is growing on me. Still my least favorite, but I'm coming to terms with it. Had listed this for $400 two days ago... but someone made me reconsider.

It's interesting just how lo-fi this thing sounds, and yet, it has just a really good soul to it. It reminds me of looking back on a good day, and wishing it were still here, but now all you have left is a photo."

Aquifex - JD-Xi & MC-101 live cover - TD’s Love on a Real Train

video by SynthAddict

"Aquifex - JD-Xi & MC-101 live cover - TD’s Love on a Real Train (Risky Business)

80% JD-Xi, needed some assistance from MC-101 due to track/voice limits.
Not possible this time to do a ‘one synth/all parts’ video. :-)
I even missed a few parts since it’s actually very elaborate and nuanced.

One of my favorite tracks ever, and way before I knew who Tangerine Dream was. I eventually became a huge fan, collecting everything they did and following their movie scores.

I wanted to make this video after watching Suit and Tie Guy’s awesome ‘how to’ video on his modular called 'Love on a real train - analysis (synth nerds only!)' - go check it out. Thanks for the inspiration, Suit!

via this auction

"The classic SYNSONICS DRUMS drum synthesizer from the 1980s. Play it with drum sticks and listen with headphones (to avoid driving your family or neighbors crazy) or over speakers."

Legendary Simmons MTX9 (1984) - Vintage Analog Drum Synthesizer Expander & Trigger Module SN 01503

via this auction

"The Simmons MTX9 is a three-channel module which gives you a choice of 13 sampled voices (electro, latin and percussion) per channel, all of which can be altered to suit your particular tastes (the parameters include pitch, decay, echo, and more) and the resulting patches or "kits" stored in 20 user memories. There are also 20 factory-programmed kits, which make a useful starting point from which to program your own variations."

Wersi KF1 Rack Fox

via this auction

This appears to be the first one featured on the site.

"CONDITIONS: The unit is fully working in very excellent cosmetical conditions. The only electronic minor “flaw” is that it can’t be turned off with its on/off button. But the turn on/off button works perfectly for turning it on, so it does not interfere in the use. For this reason we include in the sale a special white adapter with ON/OFF switch, through which it is possible to turn off the instrument without problems (please check all photos).

DESCRIPTION: This rare Wersi Rack Fox KF1 turns every electronic keyboard (synthesizer, piano etc.) into an instrument with a professional sound. It includes countless rhythms, and many different instruments! See the pictures for the available options and sounds.

Sounds can be combined in some of the modes. Within the rhythms, you can build your sound with drums, bass, chords etc. Of course, volume, tempo and other variables are adjustable.

This is a great machine for a trip in the 80s productions! We tested it with a midi pedal board that allowed us to change the midi channels and listen to the sounds and other functions. MIDI IN/THRU/OUT available. The information on the midi mapping is shown on the surface.

This is your chance to get your hands on a truly legendary expander synth. Very hard to let this one go, but it's not getting enough use and it's just time to move on."

Elka OMB 5 (1985) - Arranger, Synthesizer & Drum Machine

via this auction

"The OMB 5 from Elka aka “One Man Band” is an FM and PCM Rom based synthesizer arranger instrument. There are two FM synthesizers on board along with a PCM / Wavetable synthesizer for drums. With this synth you practically have (in addition to synths) a one Drumstar 80 (Elka) and a drum with similar samples Linn! This is a great machine for a trip in the 80s and for Italo Disco, New Wave, Synthwave productions.

CONDITIONS: The unit is fully working and in very excellent cosmetical conditions! There are some minor traces of use and the internal fan, as in all OMB 5 of the world, is a bit noisy. Other than that it is a truly perfect gem!"

Kashif - Just Gotta Have You (Minimoog Bass Cover)

video by csmcrckrs

"I finally mustered up the courage to tackle one of Kashif's songs ... Kashif being one of the (if not THE) greatest and imo the holy grail of that Minimoog bass sound. Pretty happy with the results! Gear used: Minimoog for the bass, Nord Electro for e-piano, Roland Juno-60 and Sequential Prophet 5 for some synth parts, Fender Strat (JP) for the guitars. Drums, mixing and editing done in Ableton Live."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3 SN 2097

via this auction

"This is an amazing prophet 5 rev 3 bought originally from Wine County (USA) a few years ago. Everything works as it should with just one problem. Middle d note needs a few presses to produce sound like the other notes. This is a known issue with the rev.3 prophets and is nothing to worry about. Also it might need some calibration due to the age of the instrument. Since it’s rev3 it has no midi. It comes with a certificate of authenticity from Wine Country and also with the original manual. It has a phenomenal sound."

Four Waldorf Pulses w/ Polivoks Filter Mod & Stereoping Controller Racked

via this auction

"This listing is for 4 Waldorf Pulse, 1 Stereoping Programmer, and 3 new Virtual Music Polivoks Filter kits. Everything works great. All 4 Waldorf Pulse have been upgraded with new final OS 2.01 EPROMs. The 3 Polivoks filter kits have not been installed. These filter kits are made with Russian NOS parts, they will only be in production until parts last. You can polychain these Pulse to make a massive 4 voice polyphonic synthesizer. The Stereoping Programmer can be used to control many other makes of synthesizers not just the Pulse. Stereoping also sells different face plates for the Programmer to match the gear you are controlling.

This link is a interview with the creator. He gives you information about the new updates his filter gives the Pulse. At the very bottom of that link are great sound examples of the Polivoks Pulse in action."

Kodamo Essence FM Synthesizer

via this auction

Note the listing states this is the most powerful FM synth ever. It's worth noting the Yamaha FS1R has 8 operators, while the Essence FM has 6. The FS1R has a fixed set of arrangements (algorithms) for them, while the FM is user configurable.

Layer up to 128 voices per patch, each consisting of 6 operators, for incredibly rich sounds

Draw your custom waveforms on the touch screen to use them as oscillators or LFOs

Thicken the sound with the built-in effects

Take advantage of its 16 part/300 voice multi-timbrality to create full songs with it

Use it to make analog-like sounds with the built-in resonant filter

Connect it to your audio recording gear and effect modules in many different ways with the four balanced stereo outputs

Explore FM synthesis in the most convenient way possible with the Undo-Redo buttons, allowing for any action to be undone

Try microtunings, layer splits, round robin, MPE, and many other advanced features"

Going ambient with the Minilogue XD

video by The Ocean Beneath

"So work on a new EP has just about finished. More information on that over the next few weeks.

This week I was playing around with the Minilogue XD again and coming up with some counter melodies to this track from the upcoming EP. This patch was just a really nice soft lead sound perfect for what I needed, there's some reverb on there courtesy of Valhalla but other than it's a pretty dry signal from the XD.

All recorded and edited using Ableton Live 11 and Hit Film Express."
