"We present a detailed demo and tutorial of Arturia's Flanger BL-20 effect plug-in. It is a recreation of the rare Bel BF-20 Stereo Flanger from the 1970s. We cover each of the parameters individual as well as some of the factory presets.

01:41 The basic interface of the Arturia Flanger BL-20
02:21 A simple electric piano example
03:24 A detailed look at the main panel parameters

"Great little bi-timbral virtual analog synth with a very nice reverb and delay built in.

Fat sounding thick and can be aggressive. Best of all you can layer all 12 voices or have two 6 voice patches going at once!

Made in France and already sold out!"

HYDRASYNTH: Patch Scratch with Matthew Allen

video upload by Patchwerks Seattle

"In this video Matthew Allen gives Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) a thorough tutorial on how to program and save his first patch on the ASM Hydrasynth.

The HYDRASYNTH Desktop / Rack has the same great sound engine as the HYDRASYNTH Keyboard. The sound engine is a sound designers dream synth as well as a performing musicians ideal. The sound engine is designed for maximum flexibility. At the same time, we designed the user interface in a way to allow you to edit the patch quickly with a minimal amount of paging and many workflow shortcuts.

Utilizing an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel, the tone generating capabilities are unmatched.

Fun with Arps Vol3: Moog Subsequent 37, Sequential Prophet Rev2 & Arturia PolyBrute

video upload by Lost Clouds

"I'm away from my main setup for a little while, so every week for the next few weeks I'll be releasing some old videos I recorded where I'm jamming out over some arps from the Rev2 or Sub37 (this time the Rev2!) with the Sub37 or Rev2 (this time the Sub37!), and this time with a little help from the Polybrute! This is the third and last in the series - the Sub37 is nothing but a basic saw wave running through Valhalla Shimmer (and yet it still sounds glorious??), and the Polybrute is playing some heavily modulated pads that I think used the onboard phaser."

Teletype and Just friends | it was practically magic

video upload by patchesinblue

"first time using i2c to have the Monome teletype speak to Whimsical Raps just friends. i started studying and got distracted

the MakeNoise mimeophon is there to preserve and repeat the history of what was said; occasionally; like little echoes of memories that surface suddenly, often blurring the lines between what was said and what was meant and understood

the er-301 adds grains of weariness from having to listen and remember

the Hologram Electronics microcosm creates much needed space to breathe

Thank you to vecteezy for their bird vectors that helped me created the animation"

Super6 vs Jupiter6 // Vintage Classic vs Modern Evolution

video upload by Starsky Carr

"There's been a lot of chat about how the Super 6 looks like an evolution of the Jupiter 6 or at least heavily inspired by it. So I thought I'd put them to the test. How close are they? Well just as the Super 6 has plenty of functionality the Jupiter can't touch... the Jupiter 6 also has some tricks up its sleeve."

Introducing the Behringer 2500 Series Clocked Sequential Control Module 1027

video upload by Behringer

"With our 2500 series nearing completion, we introduce the CLOCKED SEQUENTIAL CONTROL MODULE 1027.

The 1027 module is an 8-position step sequencer module from the legendary 2500 series.

As with all our 2500 series modules, the 1027 is an authentic reproduction of the circuitry from the historic 1970’s system.

The 1027 has 8 rows of 3 controls which provide 3 independently adjustable voltage outputs for each step of the counter and is fitted with a built-in base generator, allowing the sequencer to step automatically.

The 1027 can be used to control other 2500 series modules including the 1026 Preset Voltages or 1050 Mix Sequencer modules.

If you’re simply wanting to add an authentic 2500 series style sequencer to your setup, the 1027 is fully Eurorack compatible, allowing for connectivity with any compatible +12 volt and - 12 volt modules.

List Price: $149 (in stock and immediately shipping from our factory)"

Roland JD-800 Programmable Synthesizer 1992

via this auction

"ROLAND JD-800 programmable synthesizer, in exceptional cosmetic condition and excellent operational condition, all sliders, switches and pots work 100%. The B key on the last octave needs cleaning, probably it's one small leftover of the red glue that has been already removed on the keybed."

Blacet Research Audio Synth Modules

via this auction

"Blacet Research Audio Synth Modules, set of 6, FRAC Rack compatible, with 15v power supply. Everything powers up and is working just fine, but see detailed description below. FRAC rack modules are sized the same as Eurorack and API 500 series, but have 15v power requirement. The sale here includes a complete analog synth set, with the power supply. One of the six modules though (the chaos noise module) does not have a power supply base connector, so some electrical wiring is needed to power that one. The included power supply here has leads that plug directly into each of the other five modules, so those five are ready to "plug and play." Your on your own though as far as figuring out how to power up the Dark Star Chaos module.

Manuals for operating each of the six modules are included.

I believe you can mount these modules in a number of different types of racks. I used a 3-unit 19" wide audio rack, plus I had rails with mounts for the modules and rack ears to attach to that standard 19" audio rack. No mounting material is included with this sale, but it's easy enough to get that stuff. Check at if you have doubts.

From, you can get more info. Here is a general comment from their FAQ:

"Very hard to find in this cosmetic condition. It's the best-sounding drum machine IMO. The sound is very reminiscent of EMS synthi."

"Sounds gorgeous, for me, it's the best 'preset' analog monophonic synthesizer, due to its versatility and multimode filter (missing in the older brother SY-1)."

Roland Promars Compuphonic Analog Mono Synthesizer

"Roland Promars Compuphonic Analog Mono Synthesizer

This synth sounds incredible!

If you're looking for the classic sounds of the 70's this will do it.

It has a mean low end and it's incredible for leads.

It has a new memory battery installed so you can save patches.

Everything works as it should and it's in good physical condition.

Some dents and dings but nothing immediately noticeable."

Hauntology Techno with a Soviet Wire Recorder

video upload by HAINBACH

"I realize I am obsessed with the tone of old recording equipment such as tape and wire recorders, because it adds a feeling of 'realness': instruments or voices sound like news broadcasts, interrogation room recordings or nature documentaries. It is like moving things into a past they never had, creating something new in the process. The MN61 wire recorder adds that sound to the main Juno60 line here, as well as other instruments.
You can have a go at this sound in a rather post-modern capitalist twist by buying my plugin 'Wires', an emulation of the MN61:"
