Delorean Dream TWO - Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Yves Big City


video upload by Isotonik Studios

"1985. You are sitting in you car and the thunder is coming... The need for those 88 mph is coming and you start hearing something loud and slow cutting from your speakers:

«It's the Novation engine pushed to the edge. »

Wait.Are you saying that you built a time machine...out of a Novation Circuit?

It's more than an 80's time machine and you guys aren't ready for that yet.But your kids are gonna love it!

« Cheap sounds? Where we're going, we don't need cheap sounds.»

The patches have been upgraded month after month to get closer and closer to the famous Roland Juno series sound that was born in 1982.

By carefully reverse engineering the structure of this classic and emblematic synthesizer, we created an entirely new DNA for modern production upgraded for the nova sound architecture.

'Because it goes beyond the quest for the classic analog Juno sound.'

Explore vintage and complex modern pads, dusty analog basses, live guitar and wild percussions and head straight back to nostalgic days and long hot nights.

At a glance :

Instant inspiration at your fingertip with 128 patches containing: dusty analog bass, blissful chords, retro keys, and leads for a warm and meaty sound character.
64 drums lovingly handcrafted and processed on Studer tape A800 for a punchy flavor.
16 sessions to unleash your creativity from old school to new school. (Special thanks to Claas Falldorf & Davide Di Giovanni)
Midi pack chord progressions designed specifically for synthwave & vaporwave : You will never run out of ideas. Compatible with the OG Circuit edition and the Novation Circuit Tracks

V.A.I. 77 : CRB VOCO STRINGS / CRB COMPUTERBAND 2000 / SIEL CRUISE


video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Combining two very rare oddballs - both manufactured by CRB Elettronica in the late 1970s : The CRB Computer Band 2000 and the CRB Voco Strings.

The Computer Band 2000 is an analog auto-accompaniment machine with a range of chord and arpeggiator sounds with decay controls, as well as a bass section and a drum machine with individually mutable sounds.

The Voco Strings is CRBs take on the Roland VP-330 - a string and vocoder machine. Were there any other commercially produced vocoders in Europe apart from this one and the Sennheiser VSM-201? Let us know in the comment section.

We're letting the CRB Voco strings process the Computer Band, via the regular audio input, while a third player, the Siel Cruise, a lovely Mono / Poly machine, is connected as an external carrier signal, via the instrument input.

More videos of this lovely combination will be going up soon.

Vintage Audio Institute is a gear vendor and recording facility in Florence Italy."

Steiner-Connolly Synthacon In the Works



Spotted this one over at Synthtopia.

Here's what Steiner-Connolly had to say about it:

“For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, the Synthacon is back!

This is an authentic, discrete, through hole recreation of this iconic 70’s synthesizer under the direction of Nyle Steiner himself.

We have added midi via a FATAR keybed, and a couple new features, but this unit has been tediously recreated right down to the original circuit board design and vintage components.”

The Steiner-Connolly Synthacon is available now to pre-order for $3,000 USD. Contact the company at support@steiner-connolly.com for details."

You can find tons of posts mentioning the Synthacon and various adaptations including individual modules and systems in previous posts here. One of my favorites though, is this demo by Todd Barton aka vgermuse. That sucker sounded brutal.

Roland Introduces TR-8S v2.5/TR-6S v1.5 Firmware & TR-EDITOR Update


video upload by RolandChannel

"TR-8S v2.5 and TR-6S v1.5 update load your Rhythm Performer with a stack of exciting new features. In this video, Dustin Good demonstrates the ins and outs of the new firmware and TR-EDITOR software updates.

Both TRs add six FM-based drum models—kick, snare, tom, clap, percussion, and cymbal. These models include new editable FM parameters which can be controlled from both the TR hardware and TR-EDITOR software for creating intricate, evolving sounds.

Rhythm tracks get a dose of unpredictability with a fresh sequencer update that adds probability, sub step probability, and master probability. Probability can bring your drum programming to life by setting percentage values to individual steps that dictate the chance of that step playing. The higher the percentage, the more that note will be played.

Quickly assign new sounds to your pattern with random kit and random instrument. Create spontaneous sonic changes in patterns and then easily restore back to the original kit.

Then run sounds through four new MFX options—Tone Fattener, Vinyl Simulator, Pitch Shifter Delay, and Ha-Dou Reverb.

Plus, upgrade the TR-EDITOR software to version 1.5 for deeper control of the new FM, probability editing, and more.

via this auction

"This synth has the GliGli Mod installed. (I will also include the original Z80 chip that was in the synth before the GliGli Mod was installed.) I purchased this synth 4 years ago from the Vintage Vibe Electric Piano Co. It has left my studio only a handful of times since then and it functions perfectly. All switches, pots, and buttons work great and actuate as they should (i.e., smoothly and efficiently). The keys are in excellent condition. It sounds incredible and has a character that can't be captured with modern synths. The PolyMod is wicked cool and allows for some synth effects that are truly unique. I have listed the condition as "Excellent" because the synth is in great shape - but there is one noteworthy cosmetic imperfection: the left side (bass end) wood panel has been significantly scratched (it was like that when I purchased it from Vintage Vibe). I have highlighted this in the pictures. It lends character to this instrument and has zero effect on the instrument as such - and can be remedied by replacing the wood side panels with replicas of your choosing or design. The synth comes with the road case featured in some of the pictures and with a power cord. The road case is old but it is still functional and protective."

Sequential Take 5 Tracks - 1 Synth, 5 Layers NO TALKING NO EFFECTS


video upload by HansiLa

"Said goodbye to my Sequential Take 5 by doing a quick jam with it layered multiple times. I made an effort to start most patches initialized while quickly creating something on the fly.

There are no effects so you can see how the synthesizer sounds playing with other gear (in this instance, the Take 5 over and over). There is minimal processing: only panning and doubling tracks to widen stereo field.

Such a great synth. I highly recommend it."

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Part 1 of 3. The AJH Synth Gemini 2412 Dual Multi-mode SEM-based VCF explained. The 3-part User Guide will cover this very complex and fully-featured, yet simple to use analogue filter, starting with looking at one of the individual filters in isolation. There are also some audio examples, both with and without talking, and some example patches for just a single filter at the end.
Part 2 will explain the central mixing bus section of the filter, and Part 3 will cover using the both filters together with the mixing bus, and how this element enables both VCF's to function together as a single, huge filter, either in series or parallel, along with patch examples, including using the Gemini as a stereo filter.

Farfisa Soundmaker w/ Music Sheet Stand



via this auction

"Here are some facts about the synth:
The Soundmaker has 61 keys on its keyboard and therefore covers five complete octaves including C of the sixth octave. You can choose between polyphonic and monophonic registers. A combination of these is also possible - the keyboard can be "split" in the middle.

Polyphonic chords can be played with the right hand and the melody with the left hand. The Soundmaker has five poly registers (piano, harpsichord, honky-tonk piano, brass and brass with vibrato), an external one for Time-typical string ensemble, which is also polyphonic, and a total of twelve monophonic sounds (tuba, trombone, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, oboe, flute, piccolo, accordion, electric bass and electric guitar).

All registers can be easily changed and adjusted with the synthesizer elements on the front of the instrument. In addition, the instrument has a mode in which no preset is activated and the musician can create, save and retrieve his own sound. The synthesizer has two 6.35mm jacks, one each for the polyphonic and monophonic section, as well as a headphone output and an input socket. External noise sources could be integrated into the soundmaker's technology."

Unfortunately this one needs work. Also from the listing: "The synthesizer can be switched on and the various buttons also react, but unfortunately I can't get any sound out."

via this auction

"Step into my time machine and relive 80's sci-fi soundtrack nirvana without having to deal with that creepy guy at Blockbuster. Please be kind, rewind. Wait, what year is it?

Hate to do this, but this rad little keyboard hardly gets any use anymore so it's time to liquidate. It's a very cool, but slightly beat up RS-09. It sounds excellent, but could probably use some tuning up by a keyboard technician. Sonically everything works as it should, the only mechanical issues are the sunken keys above middle C (they still function though) and the broken switch on the envelope mode. A few of the switch tops are missing/broken but that doesn't impact sound.

This is the 120V version.

"A video showcasing Cherry Audio's Elka-X plugin synthesizer that just came out last week. I thought it would go great with the Stringer from Sonic Projects underneath. The Stringer synth is doubled and panned left and right with the Elka-X panned center. Some of the presets are played using the key section of a Launchpad Mini and others are melodies punched into Ableton and triggered with the Launchpad.

Moog Subharmonicon and Hologram Microcosm Ambient Toy Piano


video upload by riotbell

"Here's an attempt to simulate the sound of an old toy piano. Maybe a little broken, maybe a little out of tune. The patch is relatively straightforward.

I'm starting to feel like the best way to approach the Subharmonicon is to pair it with other complimentary synths and effects. Here the Microcosm is functioning less like an effects box, and a bit more like an accompanying synth supplying a gentle wash of sound.

Thanks for listening."

A Tale of Two Coasts | MakeNoise 0-Coast + 'A Coast'


video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Taking a close look at 0-Coast components can inspire you to make your own coast, which is remarkably easy with older, discontinued and replaced modules. 0-coast is a relatively simple tabletop, but it's one of the best synths to expore and learn modular. My 'coast' is no exception.

I used a classic Wogglebug, STO, Function, Contour and Dynamix which all are still easy to find. Looking at an older exhibition project from Mr. Rolando (Synth of Two Coasts) inspired me to focus on timbre, expression and articulation instead of notes, melody and music. 'Search for sounds unfound'. Let's do that!"

Oberheim OB-X8 vs The Prophets (Prophet 5 & Rev 2)


video upload by JimDaneker

"A super 'macro' overview of the differences between 3 closely related analog powerhouse synths: the Oberheim OB-X8, Sequential Prophet 5, and Rev 2.

DISCLAIMERS

1. I did this as fast as possible, so the production & editing isn’t up to my usual picky standards. I just wanted to get the ideas across ASAP. It’s a nerdy, lengthy over-the-shoulder synth dive, but it does the job ;-)

2. The camera focused on the Rev2 slipped after I started recording, so unfortunately you never really get a shot of that one. So sorry! You can hear what I’m doing though - that’s the important part.

3. This whole thing really focuses on just one type of sound, with 2 variations. It’s way too difficult to really show how different these 3 synths are, let alone their strengths. I just wanted to demo their overall character traits. As always with YouTube videos, take it all with a grain of salt!"

West Pest Demo and Thoughts with Space Echo RE-2


video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) demonstrates the Cre8audio West Pest with the Boss Space Echo RE-2.

Get yourself a West Pest here: https://bit.ly/west_pest
Check out the Space Echo RE-2 here: https://bit.ly/spcae_echo_re2

'The West Coast folks couldn’t be like everyone else. They had to go all yoga mat, kale smoothie, and alfalfa sprout on the synth world. West Coast style is typically characterized by additive derived, rich and complex sounds. Often more traditional user interface elements are replaced by the abstract and experimental. Perfect for you sophisticated folks.

All that said, West Pest is actually not a deep dive into the abstract. It provides a wide array of sonic capabilities while maintaining a quick and easy workflow. You’ll make fresh & inspiring sounds in a flash without having to think about kale smoothies, unless that’s your thing, in that case, yes tons of kale smoothies, pitchers full of them. Anyway, West Pest’s huge sonic capabilities emanate from its modest bento box-sized (sprout-free) exterior.

If eurorack is your thing, feel free to pop West Pest out of its enclosure and transform it right into a 40HP eurorack module, or keep it in its case and use it anywhere for your West Coast style pleasure.'

Why does this iconic Minimoog have a pitch ribbon?


video upload by moogfoundation

"Short answer: to bend pitch like the greats its owner -- keyboardist, synth programmer, and musical director David Rosenthal, formerly of Rainbow -- was listening to. Enter here; the raffle ENDS August 31 at 11:59 p.m. ET/3:59 a.m. UTC: https://bit.ly/SummerMinimoogRaffle2022

We're awarding this fully restored vintage Minimoog to one lucky winner."



A few pics from the raffle.

Update: apparently there are at least two other Minimoog with ribbon controllers. See below.





Another Minimmog with pitch ribbon via @MrDuckbutt

"The Minimoog I bought from @BrianKehew long ago has this same mod. Geddy Lee’s Minimoog from his Keyboard magazine ‘84 shoot has it as well. Seen it online a handful of times - I wonder how many of these are out there"



And one with it on the left side panel via Till Kopper @realqwave

"And this is not the only Minimoog with a pitchbend ribbon. Mine got this too. I had a warn out pitchwheel when I bought my cheap Minimoog 1983. I built a new housing myself (beech wood) and added the ribbon. The modwheel moved to the left. The right wheel is not connected."

Monome Norns Barcode + VCA๐ŸŽš| Eurorack Synthesizers Jam


video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"This is about VCA modulation. ๐ŸŽ›

How much I love changing with my hands the level on the stereo image using differente LFOs.
And this is what I’m doing here!
Belong from Barcode script is sending the main sawtooth-ish noisy drone sound to the entire system, heavy modulated by two different LFO’s from @mutable Stages. @noiseeng Desmodus Versio is always at the end of my patches, because of its incredible power in creating the magical atmosphere I always need.

That’s it, simple but effective.
Hope you enjoy!

Headphones as always! ๐ŸŽง"
