"The TH-1 was designed by Bob Moog in the early 1970's and uses two plates to control the volume and pitch. Super cool piece of theremin history, recently gone over by our in-house technician with a clean bill of health.

The theremin is a bit "smoked out" as the previous owner was a heavy smoker, this does not affect the functionality of the instrument."

DinoPark Eurorack - Seven awesome synthesizers in one Eurorack module - now available

video upload by MakePro X

The DinoPark Eurorack module was first announced at SUPERBOOTH 2019. Make Pro is known for their MakeKit EX DSP desktop synth. See the Make Pro label for more.

"German Synthesizer Guru Jörg Schaaf from Radikal Technologies gives an introduction to our brand new DinoPark Eurorack Module. The module is a full voice, polyphonic modelling synthesizer module which adds a wealth of timbres to your Eurorack with seven different synthesizers.

DinoPark is an amazingly flexible, one-of-its-kind DSP-based sound synthesizer module. Utilizing CreamWare’s legendary modelling technology, DinoPark offers seven (7) models across different synthesis methods including subtractive synthesis, wavetable synthesis, FM synthesis and physical modeling. Resulting in a huge variety and spectrum of sounds - infinitely larger than the box is comes in! :)

▬▬▬▬ HISTORY ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

DinoPark is unique in many ways. Its seminal development and beginnings over 20 years ago, forms the foundation for its unique refinement and richness when it comes to combining the best of both worlds in hardware and software synthesis.

It was Frank, founder of MakePro X who was the father of the legendary CreamWare SCOPE platform. Roughly 20 years ago, Frank and his team pushed the envelope and set new and lasting standards in software based synthesis. Truly pioneering technology that was, as many say, way ahead of its time. With their uncompromising approach to quality, CreamWare was not satisfied with host CPUs so they added whole arrays of dedicated SHARC Audio DSP processors which were new and revolutionary at that time. This approach allowed CreamWare to lead the industry in sound, performance and flexibility for years – however, this novel approach also came with a heavy price tag which ultimately took CreamWare out of the competition for less demanding mainstream markets. Today SHARC DSP processors continue to power only the very elite audio equipment in the industry – having evolved in power and price/performance; now offering 10-20 times the performance in comparison to the heyday of the CreamWare SCOPE and NOAH platforms.."

Peter Zinovieff: A Tribute by CatSynth TV

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We look back at the life and work of Peter Zinovieff, who passed away last week at the age of 88. His work at Electronic Music Studios (EMS) was a major influence on musicians of the 1970s and beyond. At EMS, he co-created the well-known and coveted VCS3 and Synthi series. But he was also a composer in his own right, working on pioneering electronic music in the 1960s and returning to active composition in the 2010s with several collaborations with artists in other media and exploring massive sound spatialization.

Additional background music provided via the Arturia Synthi V as a tribute."

RD-8MkII + TR-808 + TR-08 Improvised for 8:08 Minutes

video upload by Honeysmack

"What does a Behringer RD-8 MkII, Roland TR-808 and TR-08 sound like when performed together. What can you do with 3x 808s that you can't do with one? Maybe this video simply highlights that I may have a slight gear problem with the 808, but in a good way? Why do I have multiple 808s? I dunno I’m definitely that idiot!

All 3 drum machines are mixed via a Playdifferently Model1 mixer with effects from Eventide Space and Timefactor pedals. No other sound sources used (Octatrack and Analog Rytm used for sync purposes only, not as an audio source). All improvised in one experimental unrehearsed take.

50 Custom Patches for Moog Grandmother: Bass, Lead, Arp, Pad/Drone, Chords. Sound Demo, No Talking

video upload by Anton Anru

"«Analog Classics» is a collection of 50 patches: 16 Leads, 13 Basses, 13 Arps, 5 Drones, 3 Chords.
It includes famous sounds that are found in many electronic tracks, from vintage to modern, musical solo-timbres and basses that will fit in any instrumental track or performance, like jazz, funk, rock, pop, indie, etc.., and some experimental patches that will add uniqueness to your music - everything vintage synths are loved for plus new possibilities and sound character introduced by Grandmother.

🔊 Get the soundset:

The soundset is presented in the form of PDF-Document. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters worth tweaking during the playback, how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn lots of things about the synth and discover its true depth.
Each patch has an audio example, it helps to understand how a patch is supposed to sound.

To recreate these patches you need up 8 patch cords.
You should also install firmware v1.1.3 or higher to have access to all settings used in this soundset.

Big thanks to Dmitry Chemyrev for his great lead and bass presets performance.

Low Frequency Expander // Increase your synths modulation capabilities

video upload by Starsky Carr

"This can give you 3 complex LFOs, additional envelope, sequencer and arpeggiator plus loads of extra functionality. Well worth a look if you've got a Sequential Prophet or OB-6... or any synth with limited modulation. It can work with anything that accepts MIDI CC.

Today it's the battle of the 8HP filter modules!

Six of 'em, says the squinty-eyed man with no name.

101-VCF, SH2-VCF, JP6-VCF, Delta VCF, Pro VCF, and 4023 VCF.

You know them, but what are some of the sonic differences?

Watch out, some screechy resonance ahead. They're filters after all :D

SUIKO ST-10 Japanese Traditional Scale Synthesizer SN 001315

Return Trip Effect - Introducing Suiko ST10video upload by

via this auction

"The rare ST-10 is the big brother to famous Suiko ST-50 and was designed to accompany poetry. It has only 3 traditional Japanese instrument sounds, shakuhachi, koto and pipe organ. The samples are clean and sound fantastic with some reverb or other effects. But while it lacks the many instrumental sounds of its younger siblings, it makes up for it with its retro wood-panel styling, integrated speaker and onboard cassette tape sequencer. The data cassette player is used to record and playback note data in sequence, and the instruments can be changed during playback. Tested and 100% functional, this ST-10 comes in the original tolex hard travel case with manual. Power is 100V, and while a stepdown converter is not needed, it is recommended."

Roland Alpha Juno Chorus Compared to the legends: JUNO-6, JX-3P, JX-10, JU-06A (60 and 106 models)

video upload by thesrabbit

"The Roland Alpha Juno 1, 2, and MKS-50 have the same legendary BBD chorus chips as the rest of the 80's Roland classics, with one major difference: variable chorus rate! I've gone through and mapped out the actual chorus rates of all possible values, from 0 to 127. I've also measured the chorus rates of every Roland synth I own, and found which chorus rate values on the Alpha Juno best align with each of them. This includes the JUNO-6, JX-3P, JX-10, and JU-06A, which has built-in JUNO-60 and JUNO-106 emulations.

36:26 Wrap-up
37:14 Measurement method

For a full rundown of my findings, look no further:

If you are interested in hearing how the chorus on the Alpha Juno compares to the other Roland giants, then this video is for you! There's a small section at the end that shows how I measured the chorus rates, so you can do the same.

This is not intended to see how the Alpha Juno stacks up overall sound wise against the others and there is no real patch matching. That would have taken way too long, and this video is already long enough. I'd suggest heading over to Starsky-Carr's channel if you're interested in that sort of thing (his Alpha Juno vs 106 video is definitely worth the watch)."

SET YOUR PHASERS TO STUN!!🖖 - Moog MF-103 vs Dreadbox Lethargy

video upload by Noir Et Blanc Vie

"*Subjective opinions within, those who do not understand subjective opinion may be excused lol*

TLDR: I bought a $200 freaking phaser pedal JUST to make a video when I already have a phaser pedal that's way hate Dreadbox, it's real good!

I promised I'd buy this Lethargy pedal so I did. The ONLY thing I'll say as a negative, it didn't seem the Lethargy was as good with ULTRA low bass frequencies. Like, it wasn't as good at handling high input low end frequencies where as the MF-103 could do it all smoothly. Honestly, MAKE UP YOU OWN MIND WHILE LISTENING. lol

Overall, look, the Moog is better to me, but at the prices today, you're better off going Dreadbox."

Korg Wavestate Sound Bank Vol 2 for Berlin School and Ambient

video upload by Waveformer

"Waveformer presents the "Berlin School and Ambient Construction Kit Vol 2" soundbank for Korg Wavestate - available for purchase from

This is my second soundbank for the incredible Korg Wavestate synthesizer, built over a period of 6 months in the first half of 2021. The soundbank has 22 original Performances inspired by the Berlin School of Electronic Music, and it continues in the spirit of the first volume released at the end of 2020.

All the Performances are built from four Layers, each with multiple Lanes of Wave Sequences. The Performances use Arpeggiators, allowing you to play a few notes, perhaps a short melodic phrase, and the Arpeggiators and Wave Sequences will take it from there, play the notes in different order and automate the parameters in a musical way. The Performances are designed for live tweaking, taking advantage of the Wave Sequences to modify rhythm, pitch, timbre and dynamics. The individual Layers in a Performance are designed so they both work well together and can play alone – just like individual members of a band.

The accompanying user manual describes each Performance in detail, with a guide to both playing and twisting knobs. It also includes some general tips and tricks for the Wavestate and some insight into how these Performances were built.

I hope you enjoy playing this soundbank as much as I have enjoyed making it :-)"
