Elektronika EM-26 Soviet USSR Analog Vocoder and String Synth w/ Original Gig Bag

via this auction

"Here we have an amazing, rare, obscure Elektronika EM-26 analog vocoder and string synthesizer in superb condition. Complete with original bag and schematic diagram.

The EM-26 serves just as well as a stand alone vocoder as it does as a brilliant string synthesizer. the option to input a carrier frequency means you are able to choose from either the on boards carrier (vocoder signal) or another synthesizer in your studio.

The mic preamp is something to be excited about and the on-board chorus is absolutely amazing. You are able to proccess external sounds (such as a drum machine) through this section to add chorus or distortion without even engaging the vocoder which yeilds awesome effects."

Modular Synth Tip - double frequency and supersaw effects #shorts

video upload by

"When you mix a sawtooth and a square wave together from the same oscillator, it produces a sawtooth wave at twice the frequency!

What you need:
1) an oscillator with individual saw and pulse outputs
2) a mixer (perhaps the mixer in your filter module)
Note: that it may be possible to use an inexpensive Multiple module to do the mixing.
3) optionally an LFO to modulate the Pulse Width of the pulse wave to get the supersaw effect"

How to make cheap modular synth modules-MS20 filter

video upload by Afrorack

"For a while I've been wanting to make an MS20 filter and I decided to show the process. Never had money to buy modules that are 300 dollars or so! Its based on the schematic by Rene Schmitz but I use the LM13700 and its internal buffers. The sounds in the background track are all running through the finished filter.

“Rossum Panharmonium - First Contact” by Friendly Noise

video upload by Friendly Noise

"This is my first patch with the strange and amazing Rossum Panharmonium, a 'Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer', as it reads on the unit. Resynthesizers are an extremely rare kind of modules/instruments. The approach of Rossum Electro Music is easy to use and gets you immediate results.

In the clip, a full song is processed two times with different settings. The mix is 100% wet: you are always listening to the sound after processsing with Panharmonium.

Modules in the patch: Rossum Panharmonium, Qu-bit Nebulae V2, Intellijel Quadrax, Xaoc Tallin. Reverb comes from the Strymon Nightsky.

OB SuperVerb: Sequential OB-6, 2 X Alesis MIDIVERB II, Audiothingies Dr. A

video upload by thesrabbit

"I recently picked up a second Alesis MIDIVERB II to go with my existing one. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try stacking these wonderfully lo-fi 80's machines. Signal chain is an aux send from Logic to the first MVII, which is on preset 28 (XLarge Warm 5 seconds), with the mix at 100% wet. Then from there it goes into the second MVII, which is on preset 29 (XLarge Warm 15 seconds), and the mix is up about half way, maybe a little more. The input level on the second unit is fairly low. If you turn it up, it's instant overdrive that sounds like out of control feedback. Sometimes that could be the exact sound you want. However, in this video I wanted to explore the softer side of the OB-6, so it's a delicate balancing act of wandering up to the edge of overdrive and feedback, and then backing away before it gets out of hand. You really need to react to the reverb as you're playing, and for this reason, I feel that the reverb itself becomes a part of the instrument.

The OB-6's effects are turned off. The only other effects used are from the Audiothingies Dr. A. There's some stereo delay to get a little more width and let some of those harmonics open up and shine. There's also a little bit of plate reverb to smooth things out. I think these units together in parallel are a great combo.
