Roland R-8 | Drums Everyone Wanted!

video upload by Espen Kraft

"Roland R-8 drum machine from 1989. 68 stellar high quality 16 bit sounds. Fantastic programming capabilities, great drum pads and at a fair price. Everyone was impressed and it sold very well.

A year after, Roland released the R-8M, the 19" rack module that expanded on the ROM card slots and the rack made everything gig-worthy for when you just wanted the drum sounds and not the sequencer, as many people already did their drum sequencing from a dedicated sequencer or computer.

My demo track is done with only sounds from the factory sounds AND some 808 drums from the 08 card you see in the video.
All reverbs are from the Valhalla VintageVerb plugin and the track has been thoroughly mixed and mastered. The drums are multi-tracked and not sequenced."

Also featuring the Roland Alpha Juno.

Playing the Norand Mono as a "normal" synth (no talking)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The power of the Norand Mono is in its incredible modulation and its per-step automation. But that ultimately doesn't mean much unless there's a good basic sound. So here are 16 custom sounds played live as you would with a "normal" synth, meaning just noodling with a single sound and a keyboard. I've added a little Valhalla delay and tried to balance the volume, but otherwise there's no other processing.

In reality you'd probably use these sounds as a starting point for a Norand sequence, changing filter, wave, LFO and envelope settings from step to step making for a much more dynamic performance. But I thought it might be useful to hear the Mono in a more raw form as a standard synth.

It is a mono synth and was the first Moog to ever feature patch memory. It has 16 places to save your own sounds, as well as a simple sequencer and arpeggiator, as two fat analog oscillators and the legendary 24 dB Moog filter.

This has been in my family for years and lightly used over the last 20 or so years. I am throwing in a keyboard case to ensure safe shipping as I hope it goes to a good home to make many more moogy sounds."

Korg Wavestate 2: Modular Clouds 50 Generative Performances (Presets). Sound Demo/No Talking.

video upload by Anton Anru

"Modular Clouds" is a collection of 50 dreamy generative performances for Korg Wavestate. This is my one of the hardest works, I made a huge effort to create this soundset. Wavestate is a very complicated synth, and I dived deep into its features and possibilities.
🔋 Get the soundset:
☑️ Each performance is made from scratch: lanes, modulations, settings...
☑️ True wave sequence 2.0 synthesis, extensive and deep use of unique Wavestate features, that make the presets stand out from other synthesizers (subtractive, wavetable, FM...)
☑️ Thoroughly set parameters and complex modulation.
☑️ All 8 Performance Knobs/Macros are assigned to different parameters. They give changes from subtle to dramatic.
☑️ Vector Envelope adds movement. It has its own motion, and you may tweak it to change the timbre.
☑️ ModWheel add expression.
☑️ Making each performance took me about 60-90 minutes.
☑️ No external/additional samples are required.
☑️ Performances' volumes are equalized for a comfortable browsing.

The ARP 2600 Turns 50

Doepfer - A-157

via this auction

Additional NOISEBUG Listings

"A-157 is a trigger sequencer subsystem that generates eight trigger signals controlled by a 8x16 LED/button matrix.

The subsystem contains three modules:

A-157-1: 8 x 16 LED/button matrix and function adressing buttons/LEDs
A-157-2: Trigger Output module
A-157-3: Control Inputs module
The LED/button matrix module A-157-1 is the core of the subsystem. It is used to set or reset the trigger event on each of the 16 steps of each of the 8 rows. In addition the buttons and LEDs of the matrix are used for other functions too (like setting the first and last step of each row or adressing the preset memory).
The Trigger Output module A-157-2 outputs the 8 trigger signals and has an LED display for each trigger available.
The Control Inputs module A-157-3 has manual controls and trigger inputs available for the basic control functions start, stop, reset and clock. In addition four functions inputs are available which will be used in future firmware versions to assign these inputs to special functions (e.g. shifting a row left or right by means of an external gate/trigger signal or a second set of start, stop, reset and clock for individual rows).

Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator - Synth Review & Demo | Analog String Synthesizer

video upload by synth4ever

"Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator vintage analog string synthesizer review & demo. In this video I cover the features of the Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator string synth, play some sounds, and conclude with my final thoughts.

00:00 - Intro
01:01 - Overview
02:56 - Left-hand instruments - Bass, Brass, Piano, Clavichord, Cello, Violin
06:17 - Right-hand instruments - Brass, Piano, Clavichord, Cello, Violin
07:51 - Vibrato
08:37 - Sustain
09:00 - All instruments together
09:54 - String timbre (bright to dark)
11:05 - All instruments together again
12:03 - Pitch control
12:48 - Final thoughts / conclusion

Released in 1977, the Crumar Multiman-S (also known as the Crumar Orchestrator) is a 49-key vintage string synthesizer, with 6 sounds and volume control for each instrument on the front panel. It is split in the middle and allows you to play different sounds with the left hand vs the right hand.

The 6 instruments on the Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator are bass, brass, piano, clavichord, cello and violin. You can enable or disable each of the sounds and adjust the volume levels independently to suit your needs as you play.

The brass section features a dedicated filter and envelope with attack and decay, and the filter has cutoff and resonance controls. It can also self oscillate for some quirky sounds. In the middle of the Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator is a slider for strings timbre which can be adjusted from dark to bright. In addition, there is onboard vibrato with speed and depth, and sustain control for the entire synth to enable big chords and pads.

The Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator is physically large and built into its own tolex case, which is quite rugged and heavy. There are also a few pedals available for this string synth including 13-note (G-G) Foot Pedal Board, Sustain Pedal, and a Foot Expression Pedal controller for the filter cutoff. In addition, there are audio outputs for piano/bass and brass, plus mix out.

Overall the Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator is an interesting and nice sounding vintage string synth from a renowned Italian synthesizer company at the time. The independent mixer control for each of the instruments allows you to craft your sound as you play, or have completely different sounds on one side of the keyboard vs the other. The self resonant brass filter also gives it a unique flavor.

The Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator can be found on the second hand market for decent prices still, and it is great for big symphonic patches, pads, strings and funky brass. If you are in the market for a vintage string synthesizer, keep your eyes out for the Crumar Multiman-S / Orchestrator as it has its own charm."
