1970's KORG 770 Synthesizer SN 770294

video upload by normal AL

via this auction

"Here is a 1970's Korg 770 monophonic synthesizer -beautiful piece of synth history! This thing makes some super weird sounds and is great for creating lo-fi soundscapes, mood pads, and other sound fx. Apparently you can also run external sounds through it though I have never experimented with this. It is fully functional despite some cosmetic wear and tear (see pics) and one missing 3 way Sustain switch. The switch can still be toggled using your fingernail or carefully with a flathead screwdriver. Switch part# is CST023NK if you wish to track down a replacement. The right side panel

Elektron Trademarks SYNTAKT

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

Looks like a new Elektron synth box is on the way. A Digitakt with built-in synth engine?

The trademark description translated:

"Musical instrument; electrical apparatus for synthesizing music (musical instruments); sound effects machines which are musical instruments; mechanical, electrical and electronic musical instruments; musical instruments controlled by microprocessors."

Some guesses as to what it is are going up on Elektronauts, including the following which would be nice for current Digitakt owners:

"Of course it might also be the new $299 Syntakt card for the Digitakt
A simple click in pcb with juicy chips, analog oscs and filters for the midi tracks, to fill up the massive void inside the Digitakt case where some of us have put li-ion batteries …"

And a fun guess:

"It’s an 8-channel vocoder and human voice generator, name is a play on syntax."

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #115: Wersi City Rack KF2 - Song 1

video upload by Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the first song with the City Rack KF2. There are virtually no any information online available about this rack unit. I think it was intended as a sound addition to an organ because that was Wersi's core business. Unlike Dr. Böhm who used Yamaha's FM chips for sound creation, Wersi used PCM sounds combined with reverb and ensemble effects.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
HT-3000 - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2. Depending on the recorded track some FX are deactivated.

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."

This is the first post to feature the Wersi City Rack KF2.

This is the ultimate mono synth! Has 3 different flavors of filter types, step sequencing, dual effects, huge mod matrix, 3 LFOS. A sound designers playground. It can be as aggressive or as smooth as you want it. The paraphonic mode is very unique. Very well built."

Overhauled Casio CZ-1 Phase Distortion Vintage Synthesizer

via this auction

"-Full overhaul - the entire unit has been cleaned inside and out (apart from the main PCBs).
-Front panel tact switches replaced, buttons cleaned - ALL of the tact switches in the front panel were desoldered and replaced with high quality ALPS switches.
-Screen replaced with high contrast backlit black and white display (will include original display if I can find it).
-Keybed stripped and cleaned - all keys have been washed and cleaned. One key has been repaired with epoxy and although it isn't the cleanest job, it will never break and isn't very noticable.
-Faders have 3D printed knobs (sorry about the colour; some photos don't have the fader caps on but they're included!)
-Relay cleaned - the audio relay on the output board has been cleaned and works great."

Future // HWJ Challenge wt Sequential PRO 3 + Korg Minilogue XD + Virus TI

video upload by Sounds of Synth

"The year is 2088 and THE MACHINE is running the show.

Alas THE MACHINE knows no compassion, soul or love.

It "lives" by how efficient it can be in finding and utilising all the resources it can without consideration of long term cost.

Nor does THE MACHINE recognise the need for love or how powerful (and necessary) this is for the survival of all livings beings.

In the end THE MACHINE will fail because of its inability to love.

....and so, as long as we hold onto what is dear, there is always hope for a bright future.


Equipment Used:

Sequential PRO3
Korg Minilogue XD
Access Virus TI
Launchpad PRO for triggering a few samples
Ableton Live (for samples and recording)
