Afterneath V3 on synth with CV control (no talking)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"There's plenty of videos which show Earthquaker Devices' Afterneath V3 doing all the usual reverb things, so here I thought I'd just show what happens when you apply CV. The expression jack accept 1v/Oct CV, although it doesn't track pitch. Because of that I mostly ignore the Major, Minor, Pentatonic scale modes because they don't really work anyway in terms of tracking pitch. Despite that there's lots of interesting weirdness to explore.

Here I'm running a DB-01 through the pedal. the DB-01 CV out is being mixed with the CV from a synced LFO. I experiment with different LFO shapes, rates, and blends of the LFO and DB-01 pitch CV.

In my first edit of this video I chopped everything up into highlights, but I abandoned all that and went with the unedited noodling instead. I think it's more interesting to see the process of getting from one effect to the next even if that means a few interludes of mush. Hope you find it useful.

ps: This is not a sponsored video, I bought it at full price with my own money.

Modular Techno Noodle with TD-3MO + Quadrantid Swarm + Palette Case

video upload by Honeysmack

"Little experimental and improvised techno noodle. Exploring some of the CV i/o on the Behringer TD-3MO with EO Waves Quadrantid Swarm (techno-in-a-box) and a small 62hp modular set up with the Intellijel Palette Case providing the drum sounds. Everything was clocked from the Malekko Varigate 4+ sequencer. Nothing too serious here.

Gear used:
Behringer TD-3 MO AM version (acid!)
EO Wave Quadrantid Swarm (poly rhythmic melody)

Eurorack modules used:
Malekko Varigate 4+ (main sequencer)
Audio Damage Neuron (kick drum)
Intellijel Plonk (reverberated percussion/snare)
Busy Circuits MUM M8
Make Noise Function

1976 Oberheim Four Voice FVS-1 SN 0633

via this auction

"Legendary king of analogue synths. Four SEMS plus a master control, memory programmer, expression section, and output module with level and pan per voice. Switchable CV/Gate has been added per module.

This Four Voice has been babied all its life, it's fully functional and in great condition. I am only the second owner since 1976 and it has been carefully looked after.

It sounds immense, lush, and amazing. If you had this patched out by a tech you'd have a modular that exceeded a Moog 55 in sonic capabilities. You can use it as four monosynths, or you can put it in split mode and play a bass and three voice chords, or anything in between. The true state variable filters are remarkable in polyphonic mode.

It was way, way ahead of its time and is probably the most beautiful and refined sounding synth I've ever heard. Imagine a Matrix 12 crossed with an OB-Xa on steroids and you only just begin to get the idea."

Update: link fixed.

"Original vintage c 1970’s Roland RS-505 string Synth in absolutely gorgeous playing condition, complete with original hard shell case. Many have argued that the RS-505 is the greatest string synthesizer of all time. They are correct. You will not find a better example than this. 100% OG 100v non-export Japanese model."

Oberheim OB-8 SN C42508

via this auction

Based on the seriel number etched on the inside the case appears to have been listed for parts back in 2018.

From the new listing: "I've had this OB-8 for about 5 years and have loved it. It was serviced at Patchwork here in New York City a few years ago and hasn't gotten much use in the last few years. Works and sounds fantastic. Has the front panel that includes labels for secondary functions and has the MIDI ports on the back. Front panel and wooden side panels have a few marks and dings here and there (see photos), but nothing too bad, certainly for a synth of this age. The bottom panel is a bit scraped up and has two of the rubber feet missing. These can be replaced or you could just remove the two on the right side and get new ones. Or leave it as is because once it's on a rack or keyboard stand you won't know the difference."

JS-Sound Yamaha AN1x Magic Soundset with 128 new Presets for AN1x

video upload by js-sound

"You can buy this set of sounds for Yamaha An1x synthesizer for 10 euros. PayPal:

Yamaha An1x sound is unique, I love its sound and I will never sell my An1x! For its time in 1997, it is the best VA synthesizer.

There are no components or blocks inside the case like a power supply that can dry out the electrolytic capacitors. Nowadays it can be bought and all components such as knobs are in stock! In my synthesizer, I changed all the knobs, the condensers have been in perfect condition for 22 years, it works flawlessly, it has an excellent ribbon controller with X and Z function, there is an aftertouch, convenient control, a large fan factor, super sound and incomparable , it has a warm sound, it can sound partly like an analogue, it can be a spaceship, that's my opinion, but it's true about an AN1X synthesizer!

The Yamaha AN1X is the best of the best VA synthesizers of its time, but even today it is still relevant. JS-Sound"
