"Here's a super clean example of one of Dave's best designs. This particular synth has been very well maintained along with the upgraded encoder kit (not PE) from DSI. True to it's original intended design, all encoders work flawlessly. Includes original power supply. A Wickedly Powerful Synergy of Analog and Digital

The Evolver series marked Dave’s Smith’s triumphant return to hardware synths and still sets the standard for sheer sonic ferocity. The Poly Evolver Keyboard features a plethora of Dave’s best ideas packed into a monstrously powerful instrument with 4-voice polyphony and a sound like no other.

An analog/digital hybrid, the four-voice Poly Evolver Keyboard features four oscillators per voice—two analog and two digital (the digital oscillators feature the waves from the legendary Prophet VS). Classic Curtis analog low-pass filters and real analog VCAs add ample warmth and girth to the analog section while the digital high-pass filter, tuned feedback, and digital distortion provide sizzle and grit.

But what really sets the Poly Evolver Keyboard apart is the way in which the analog and digital sides of its personality mesh—the digital processing doesn’t simply add effects at the end of the signal chain, but is tightly integrated with the analog electronics in a true stereo signal path with tuned feedback, distortion, bit crushing, and synced delays. It can also process external audio and has separate stereo outputs for each voice. Massive doesn’t even begin to describe its sound.

Imagine being able to move effortlessly from thick analog smoothness to crisp digital edge—or anywhere in between—and you begin to get the picture. The LFOs, step sequencer, and three separate delays can all be synced for complex, evolving, rhythmic, time-based effects in true stereo."

Sequencers & Synths - Argon8, lots of Make Noise inc 0-coast and Microfreak

video upload by junklight

"let's just say that is _dangerous_ ;-)

I seem to have added an Argon8 to my collection - lovely. I love the little Skulpt but I'm not a massive fan of the touch keyboard on it and the controls are a bit TOO overloaded so happy to upgrade to a bigger modal synth. The sequence is the 0-coast driven by the 0-control and with various bits of the tape and micro sound machine 'helping'. The loop on the Argon is the Valhalla delay in tape mode (wish there were a hardware version!!!)

anyway: a bit of a jam getting the hang of them all...."

Essence Vol 1 - Patches 1 to 32 - Sequential Take 5

video upload by GEOSynths

"Out Soon...

I love this little Synth, it has such a great Sound Engine to it. I wasn't going to bother with it as I've done quite a lot of Patches for Sequential Synths, however I decided it would be worth trying at least and the the next thing I knew, I'd made a load of Sounds!

In Essence vol 1 there is 128 Patches covering Pads and Motion Sounds...Of course, that's what I do best! Also cutting Leads and Bass, Poly and traditional Sounds. The combination of VCO/VCF/Mod Matrix is quite spectacular on the Take 5 and I've been creating textures which I've not heard before on Sequential Synths.

Here are the first 32 demonstrated, hope you enjoy them and watch out for the other 3 Videos.

This Was SUPERBOOTH21 - a Look Back From the Organizers & Plans for SUPERBOOTH22

The following is a press releas from the organizers of SUPERBOOTH. You can find all SUPERBOOTH21 posts here (currently 167 including this one).

Berlin, October 2021

We all had to wait a long time for SUPERBOOTH21, now the event is over and it was a complete success. The circumstances that forced the organizers to completely rethink have made this year‘s SUPERBOOTH21 better. The exhibitors have used the last months to develop many exciting novelties. The spacious area, the airier rooms and the resulting much more relaxed atmosphere, gave the exhibitors and visitors more opportunity to engage in conversation and to test and experience the exhibited instruments in a meaningful way.

Many participants reported that the quality of the discussions among each
other was once again better than in previous years. This was made possible by the 126 exhibitors present this year, whom the organizers would like to thank once again. Another important element in this year‘s concept was the coopera- tion with the Miller-Zillmer Foundation, to whom the organizers would also like to express their sincere thanks. The Miller-Zillmer Foundation made it possible
to bring the wonderful artists Yann Tiersen, hackedepicciotto, JakoJako, Pole
and the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble to the stage.

Andre Kaufmann: „Our little adventure trip is over for this year - 4 days with quite a few moments of joy, passion and excitement. We hope everyone had a great time meeting colleagues, friends and making many new contacts. It was a very memorable event, maybe the special circumstances made us even more connected.“


The start was perhaps a bit bumpy, with decent rain from Wednesday afternoon, but this was compensated for in the following days by the mild late summer with some sunshine hours and pleasant temperatures. The bungalow village had a wonderful homely atmosphere, in the evenings the Tresorbühne spread festival and club feeling and the famous Japanese pancakes and vegan gyros were again the right basis for long days and short nights.

The success of the newly designed event prompted Andreas Schneider to announce in his closing words after the last concert on the seaside stage on Saturday evening that he intends to keep this concept for SUPERBOOTH22. So you can look forward to another Superbooth that manages to be exciting and relaxed at the same time. One of the best news remains with regards to the first September edition of Superbooth that SUPERBOOTH22 is only 8 months away!

The preparations for SUPERBOOTH22 are already about to begin. The next edition of Superbooth will then take place at FEZ-Berlin from May 12-14, 2022, this time in conjunction with sooperGRAIL, which is dedicated to the art of guitar building.

For the perfect review of concerts and interviews with guests like Jean-Michel Jarre and T.Raumschmiere, talk concerts with Metasonix, Modor, UDO Audio, Joranalogue, Erica Synths, Meng-Qi and many more, there are plenty of videos on the official Superbooth Vimeo and YouTube accounts, as well as on the Superbooth homepage.

Soma Enner Synth Tutorial Lesson 1: Overview and Basics

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a tutorials series for anyone who wants to learn how to use the Soma Labs Enner body patching synthesizer electronic instrument. If I get a response to this series, I will try to break things down into small videos that are easy to mentally digest and apply to your own electronic music. We will be exploring both east coast tonal and west coast avant-garde uses of the synthesizer. The Enner is especially good at ambience, noise, and soundscapes for film music.
This first video will give you an overview of the different sections of the synth and show you some of what's possible to do only using your fingers. Please leave a comment with any questions or requests and a like if this was helpful."

Sequential Prophet-5

via this auction

Guessing the price is in Australain dollars.

"The new Prophet 5 is Dave Smith’s long-awaited return to world of analogue poly synthesis, embodying everything you loved about the original that changed the world. It’s “the best of all Prophet-5s” as Dave puts it because it embodies all three revisions of the legendary synth — Rev1, Rev2, and Rev3 — through the use of genuine Curtis analog VCOs and filters (as in the Rev3) as well as new 2140 low-pass filters designed by Dave Rossum, like the 2040 filters he designed in the original Rev1 and Rev2. The end result is the ideal analogue classic synthesiser capable of all the authentic, muscular tones of the original making this truly a a state-of-the-art modern instrument.

All of this punchy, powerful, analogue goodness, housed in a full, five-octave, semi-weighted Fatar keyboard with USB, MIDI, Gate and CV ins/outs, and a premium-quality, steel and hand-oiled, sustainable black walnut heartwood body that make it as satisfying to behold as it is to hear and play. Near new condition with manual, power cable, poster & sticker!"

Roland MKS-50 Alpha Juno Synthesizer w/ Programmer PG-300

via this auction

"The MKS-50 is a very rare synthesizer module from the mid-80's. It is the rack version of the Alpha-Juno 1 and 2 synthesizers. The MKS-50 is a six-voice polyphonic programmable synthesizer module, featuring a poly mode and a solo mode (that at the time was in vogue to use with a MIDI guitar - so that each string had one voice and MIDI channel - this was before the current crop of MIDI guitar interfaces).

The MKS-50 can store up to 128 "tones", which in turn can combined with performance control functions into 'patches'. There's also a useful "chord" function (when you press one key, a whole chord will sound) that techno/house artists of all kinds used and abused during the early 90s: there are 16 programmable spots for these chords although the factory-programmed ones are some of the most used.

The PG-300 is a very useful companion to the MKS-50, as programming become "immediate" and "hands on".

The sound character of this series of synths is a cross between the Juno and MKS synthesizers - The tone is silky and lush, but with some programming it can definitely sound huge, beautiful and nasty."

A blend of the Moog Mother 32 and Plaits as a sound source. Marbles triggers Plaits, and I improvise on the Mother 32 playing notes in the same key. The blended sound sources feed into Beads which is then filtered by QPAS.

Post production I'm using a blend of 3 different reverbs; Logic Pro's Space Design, ChromaVerb, and Valhalla DSP's Shimmer. I also had to attenuate certain frequencies a bit further. I hope you enjoy the end result!"

This version is true to Original miniKORG 700S, the distorted 'Triangle' wave is heard here.
The filter compared to the KORG 800DV is much resonant and aggressive. After hearing it myself, the miniKORG 700FS has a more 'Quirky' filter than the 800DV.
