"Our label, Moroderik Musik, just released something by an artist called Me, I'm Counting. The EP is MACAU. It was recorded with classic and modern synths, and references the golden age of electronic music, very early techno, some modern psychedelia, incorporating some experimental flourishes to keep it interesting. Typical of Nick's stuff, where it starts out and where it ends up are two different places. It's on all of the services.

The inspiration for the album came on a trip from Hong Kong to Macau, where Nick got sick, and had to ride a hydrofoil back to Hong Kong in a state of delirium. 'I felt like I was being carried along on a cloud of pure air conditioning.'

Here's the video for "Wave Age" which was shot when four Moroderik acts set up and played a masked, distanced outdoor show during the pandemic to get live music to people who were starved for it. Nick is using Elektron and Moog gear. Dreamy footage is interspersed with his live performance."

"MATTHS presents his seventh release of 2021 with 'Release', - feeding the grit and distorted bass frequencies with melancholic melodies, MATTHS is back with another taste of honest and up-front sounds to please your inner confused self. Recorded as a single take using a bespoke modular eurorack synthesiser setup, MATTHS brings you into his new direction of heavy experimental drone techno.

The music video for ‘Release’ plays on the connection of isolation and how we can explore our own bodies within this time.

Korg 800 DV w/ Custom Knobs SN 0153

via this auction

"This unit needs some attention to get back to full playability but has a lot to work with.

Powers on, both oscillators work, most of the functions work.

Wood is in great shape considering the age.

Inside looks clean, no sign of water damage though a musty smell exist mentioned below.

Will need a deep cleaning as that typical dirty potentiometer/slider wobbly sound exists everywhere.

If you're picky about original knobs, this one has some that are atypical for the unit though they work just fine. Is missing 1 knob abs 2 fader caps in total.

Has a musty smell, could benefit from sitting in the sun for several hours.

Will be well packed and shipped with the wood panels removed and packed alone to preserve their current state."

"Very rare full keyboard version of this 90's monster classic. You usually only see the desk top version. This is the king of the late 90's / early 00's VA synths and was used by NIN, KMFDM, Crystal Method, etc. I just bought way too many synths and have to sell a couple.

Monster specs!
- 16 part multitimbral and you can set where you want parts split or layered on the keyboard
- 24 voice polyphonic
- 3 osc per voice including the usual analog wave shapes plus fm and 64 digital waveforms
- 3 lfos with 68 waveforms!
- 2 multimode filters with series or parallel routing and resonant spacing and overdrive
- 82 simultaneous effects
- 61 full sized keys with velocity and aftertouch
- 32 band vocoder
- over a thousand patch memory slots.

You don't see too many synths with specs like that anymore. Built super solid with wood and metal. No crappy 5 pound plastic body here."

Hydrasynth patch demo #A036 - Cycle Of Thought - video game synthesizer music

video upload by Brian Leahy Art

"Demo of the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth factory patch #A036, which is named 'Cycle Of Thought'. Very cool patch. Love how the sound speeds up and then slows down the longer you hold the note

What level in a video game is this music for? I think one where you’re floating in outer space, or exploring an underground cavern"

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #113: Casio HT-3000 - Song 2

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the second song with the HT-3000. It's a 8-voice synthesizer based on 'Spectrum Dynamic' SD Synthesis and has a single real analog 4-pole voltage-controlled filter. My HT-3000 has the legoluft filter mod (, so that the frequency and resonance can be control in real-time via two separate knobs (on the left side above the pitch bend wheel).

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
HT-3000 - Digitech Obscura - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated. In addition, I used in Cubase the coreFX Volume Former on some tracks for a slight pumping effect.

The signal went through a Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 into the PC via USB for recording. To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track."

Exploring the Wersimatic II

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Another take with the Wersimatic II, the older sister / brother of the Wersimatic 24 auto-accompaniment machine and distant cousin to the Elgam Carousel, Böhm Solist 78, Elka Wilgamat and Godwin Drummaker 45.

The sounds and controls are across the board identical to the Wersimatic 24 unit as far as we can tell.
The Wersimatic II was never made as a stand-alone unit but was part of a large, double manual organ called Wersi Helios in the mid 70s.
This particular one has been transplanted from an organ into a smaller box with a twelve buttons acting as chord control instead of the bottom keys of the organ.

Special thanks to Organfairy for the rare schematics : dude you f-ing rock

The Wersimatic II has sections on board:

Various chord sounds"
