E-mu Proteus MPS Plus Demos - RAM Bank 1

video upload by Python Blue

Bank 0 here. Additional Python Blue demos here.

"Finally decided to make another set of synthesizer demos. This one entails a recently acquired E-mu Proteus MPS Plus keyboard, best known as the synthesizer used in the music for Myst. To challenge myself, and to help inform others about the sound, I tried to perform as many of the unique presets as I could.

This second video of three covers the one RAM bank of presets, also based very loosely on the Proteus 1 soundset. For anyone worried about losing these sounds via reinitialization, it turns out that the MPS Plus has this bank copied verbatim into ROM bank 4, similar to the Proteus XR modules."

Novation Peak demo - Himalaya Soundset Part 2

video upload by Soundsauca

Part 1 here

"And so to Part 2 of the Himalaya project by Michael/Soundsauca. This half features more EPs, basses and leads, but also follows on with some more signature Soundsauca pads and atmospheres. 128 patches officially, and another 28 outtakes and revisions. (156)

The sounds are always made first with a great deal of care, everything else is secondary. More info is available on my website:

Sorry it's so long but I did it for a few reasons:
– I like to tell a story through sounds that touch me visually. I considered timestamps but I wasn't sure it would work with that intention.
– There's no ambiguity about what they all sound like.

I offer the sounds at a reasonable price IMHO as this takes serious time. But more than that, it's my own sensory documentation of my time with a particular synth. My playing skills aren't the best (nor are my hotchpotch videos) – there's fantastic videos elsewhere from virtuoso performers and great influencers. Shamefully I'm not up to speed with every genre under the sun (I stopped being cool when my kids were born!) I know what I like though, if others do, that's a bonus. Taken as a whole I hope it all stacks up.

Recorded at 48khz, -6dB (Peak Setting) into Logic Pro-X via an RME UFX. Peak volume knob at 12 O'clock. Fades are used to transition between sounds, but the sounds are pure Peak. No compressors, limiters, EQ or other secret sauce were harmed in the making of this demo;)

I assume that these will also be compatible with a Novation Summit, but I have no access to one so I cannot confirm."

Rare 1980’s Dr. Böhm Digital Drums M. Drum Machine + pedal & additional eProm!

via this auction

"The machine was built in Germany in the early 80s and is in very good condition.

CONDITION: It’s fully working. Cosmetically the two plastic removable covers have been re-glued by the previous owner because they were cracked (check all photos).

It includes also a beautiful foot pedal to control: fill / auto-stop / break / solo / etc.

It also includes a second sound eproms (untested!) with some more sounds!

There are 40 rhythm stored as samples in 2 different eProms.

· The first eprom includes the following 20 presets:


· The second eprom (untested!) includes the following 20 presets:


There are also 3 variations of each rhythm (except for those in the bracket standing rhythms, since these are already a variation), a break, a solo and a fill in. So that makes a total of 60 rhythms, 60 breaks 60 fill ins and 20 solos.

An Auto Fill feature adds after the 4th, 8th or one random beat a fill in one.

The tempo is set with a "+" and a "-" button and changes back to an optimized pace when a new rhythm is selected. Do you want this avoided, you have to press the "Hold" Button before changing the Rhythm

For adjusting the volume, there is the silver colored pot button.

The sound is punchy and reminiscent of a Linn drum from the 80s!"

Rare Elgam R12 (Italy, 1970s) Vintage Analog Drum Machine

via this auction

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

"This gorgeous analog rhythm box - made in Italy in 1970s - is one of the best electronic drum machine produced by Elgam, the italian brand that also invented the legendary Elgam Carousel in the same years!

Elgam was the Italian brand that produced many legendary instruments, including the Elgam Carousel. Based in Marche, Italy, in the same area where Elka, Eko, Farfisa, Crumar, Jen, Siel, Solton, CRB, etc. were born.

It’s born in 1970s! The item is fully working and in good cosmetical conditions for its age: on the surface there are scratches here and there (please, check all the photos), but the drum machine sounds great and works perfectly!

It has a characteristic fat warm sound especially with a nice tape delay and reverb added. The tempo knob slows things right down and you can get some unintential sounds out of this piece of kit. For example, you could use it running through distortion pedals to get some interesting riff style sounds!

· 12 drum style buttons

· 1 x “break” button (adds fill to each drum beat)

· 1 x start/stop button

· 1 x tempo knob

· 1 x volume knob

· 1 x power on/off button

It's mains powered and on the back it has:

· 1 x removable fuse

· 1 x large jack out

· 1 x pedal out (pedal not included)

Farfisa Soundmaker Vintage Analog Synth

via this auction

"VERY rare vintage analog synth. Sounds awesome but also has a couple of issues! There are a few cracks and cosmetic things and also the Polyphonic synth section doesn't work, although the polyphonic strings section DOES work. The monophonic section also works fine. I've uploaded a video to YouTube (link below) showing what I mean and some of its other functions that do work fully. These very rarely come up and when they do they're expensive. Check the video out and you'll hear some of the great sounds it makes. It weighs nearly 30kg..."

"Hammond organ of the East"

via this auction

"Vermona Formation 1 is a rare vintage analogue organ with built-in spring reverb.
Made in 1984s in Germany (GDR).
The price includes an the instrument, original suitcase, original stand, and an original manual.

My particular unit is in a truly mint condition, honestly the instrument looks stunning, as you can you on the photos. It is also in full working order - I personally did the maintenance check recently.

• All the buttons, faders, keys are working perfectly
• Spring reverb works and sounds beautiful
• All te functions are in 100% working order.
• The chassis is clean and not broken.
• Output signal is loud and clear. It is not distorted, noisy nor crackly.

Despite the fact that this is an almost 40 years old instrument it shows close to none traces of usage. The suitcase, stand, and manual all have some traces of usage, most of them perfectly visible on the pictures, but still it they are in really nice condition and work perfectly well."
