SynthMaster 2 Patch Analysis

video upload by boxoftextures

"SynthMaster 2 has become one of my favorite synths. It's powerful, flexible, easy to use, and sounds great. And you can make tons of really good synth patches without too much trouble. SynthMaster 2 used to be only on computers but they've recently released an iPad version and it's a major benefit to now be able to easily take it everywhere. I happen to like large swirly textures, and SynthMaster 2 excels at that sort of thing. And you can make any number of other types as well, of course. This one uses the vector and wavetable oscillators along with a pile of LFOs to provide that sweet, sweet swirling action. So while this isn't exactly a SynthMaster 2 tutorial you can probably get a good idea of how the synth works as I take apart the patch I made."

Moog Polymoog 203a Synthesizer SN 2118

via this auction

"It powers on and makes sound, but is not 100% working and needs to be serviced. Here's a quick rundown of the issues, as far as I can tell:

- Depending on the settings, your can sometimes hear oscillators constantly droning quietly in the background
- Some oscillators are louder than others / inconsistent timbre across the keys
- Some VAR/PRE buttons stuck in one position, making it hard to tell if those sections are working properly
- Velocity sensitivity doesn't work very well
- 3 keys don't trigger
- Some LEDs are burnt out
- Some sliders cut in and out / are scratchy

The Polypedal generally works, but is a bit finicky and the patch cable seems to be partially non original.

It is in good physical condition. The ribbon controller is responsive and works well, and most of the presets sound as they should. Some keys are a bit uneven / not parallel with the keys on either side.

Great for someone who wants to invest the time and energy to getting this back up and running."

Quality Time with a Quad Quantizer (Quartermain)

video upload by Red Means Recording

"Pitch quantizers take incoming CVs and adhere them to a scale. In this video, we'll use voltage and LFOs on the Intellijel Tetrapad into Quartermain on After Later Audio Ornament and Crime, triggered by the Tubbutec 6equencer, into the 4ms Spherical Wavetable Navigator to make generative melodies. Intellijel Rainmaker brings the wetness."
