"This out of tune piano sample has been sampled into the Lúbadh twice and then resampled back into the Arbhar to give us a world of evolving piano loops."

Moog One - Sound Demo - Multitimbral - No Talking

videos uploaded by SMV Producer

"Another demo i made, showing the Moog One playing the 3 parts together. On the first one, the lead sequence, on the second, the bass and on the third the drum. The ModWheel does some interesting stuff ;). All sounds come from the Moog without any external processing.
This sound also will be included on the sound bank i'm preparing for this synth."

Making an Analog Eurorack Guitar Synth with a 1970's Ultra-Fuzz Circuit

video upload by Extralife

"I've been exploring some guitar synth sounds using the hard sync input on my VCO, but this has some issues with tracking stability and major noise problems. I solved this be re-building the classic Craig Anderton Ultra-Fuzz circuit from 'Electronics Projects for Musicians' in a eurorack format, which is a comparator-based fuzz that outputs a proper square wave rather than a clipped sinusoidal one. This provides much better tracking and dynamics and lets us get those classic screaming hard sync synth sounds out of any guitar.

Ultra-fuzz modernized schematic:

The 1986 Akai S900 / S950 MIDI Digital Sampler Complete Walk-through

video upload by TONELAB

"Well, here it is, finally.. I’m terribly sorry for those that have been waiting patiently, but the ‘lock-downs’ have caused some unforeseen issues that have threw a few hurdles my way. It feels like the S900/S950’s are having another day in the sun and there appears to be a lot of questions being asked about the features. So, while in this very strict lock-down, I decided to put everything I have into a #viewtorial on the S900, a lot of these functions should also work on the S950, but this is in no way a dedicated S950 tutorial, as much as it is 'a sharing of knowledge' for the features that appear on both.

I hope this helps to dispel some rumors and show you how to get around your S900 ..or perhaps, if you’re considering purchasing one, then I hope this helps you understand the kind of workflow you may be getting yourself into. Either way, here’s hoping you can turn confusion into creation with this walk-through of the amazing #S900.

Soma Enner Synth Tutorial Lesson 5: Piezo Pickup

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 fifth video teaches some details and experimental uses of the piezo pickup and show you some of what's possible to do only using your fingers."

Technosaurus Microcon II SN TMII - 2076

via this auction

Demo video in the listing previously posted here.

"sound of classic Roland TB-303 and SH-101 synths. They are made by Technosaurus, a Swiss company best known for their high-end Selector modular synths. It is handmade using the same discrete circuits found in its bigger brothers. The Microcon is a totally analog table-top synth module that's slightly smaller than the original TB-303. It has one main oscillator capable of either sawtooth or square waveforms, just like the TB-303. The addition of a sub-oscillator is more like SH-101, which can help beef up your bass sounds. The analog lowpass filter is switchable as either 2-pole (12dB/oct) or 4-pole (24dB/oct), which is better than the TB-303 or SH-101 offered. The LFO can modulate the filter cutoff frequency with either triangle or square wave and the VCO can be modulated by square or triangle waves. Simple attack and decay envelope controls and a Glide effect round out this fairly simple to use 303 clone."
