Korg M500 Micro Preset - Synthesizer Demo

video upload by NGC0 Music

"Finally got my hands on this one, a bit rare these days, vintage mono little beast from the 70s (late 70s I think) made by Korg. It's a bit unconventional, as it's from the times when there was no real standards on synth nomenclatures, so each company had their own "words" for stuff like "Cutoff Filter". (Here it's a horizontal fader called "Traveler", which also controls the resonance). I hope you can hear on this video how beautiful this thing sounds, in. my opinion, it really shines on leads with vibrato, it can get very expressive, for something with so little controls.

The M500 is going straight to my audio interface, there it's going to an emulation of a tape echo (UAD Galaxy Echo)."

New Barton Musical Circuits BMC093 Diode Shaper VCA & BMC092 Sample Release

BMC093 Diode Shaper VCA Demovideo upload by boogdish

"Demonstration/Overview of a new synthesizer module design.
I provide PCBs/Panels for DIY builders and also sell pre-built modules on my site. Visit to get more information on this module. PCBs and fully built modules can be ordered from:"

This module is a VCA that uses rectified feedback/feedforward to provide waveshaping. Both the feedback/forward knobs can provide positive or negative feedback and the external CV control is an attenuverter. It also includes switchable Zener diode limiters to soften the output when large amounts of positive feedback are used. The module is DC coupled, so it can be used with LFOs, Envelopes and CV sources as well waveforms. The DC coupling also allows for DC offset to be applied to the input which increases harmonic possibilities.
This module is designed for 12V systems, but works with 15V systems with just one resistor change. The documentation gives tips on how to tweak or modify the circuit.

BMC092. Sample Release Demo video upload by boogdish

"This is a demo/overview of a new synthesizer module design. More information (schematics, ordering, etc) can be found at"

The Sample Release is a 4 channel bipolar envelope generator module that can also act as a sample-and-hold or track-and-hold. Each channel takes a voltage input, samples it and then that voltage goes to zero volts with it's rate controlled by the release knob. This generates control envelopes that fall when positive voltage inputs are applied and rise when negative voltage inputs are applied. Each channel has a toggle that disables the release function and lets the channel act as a traditional sample-and-hold or track-and-hold. Additionally, a +5V supply is normalized to the voltage input so the module can also be used as a normal release generator

MiniKorg + OpSix + Polybrute + Rhodes MKIII = FUNK!

video upload by Jeremy Parker

"So this funky number is named after Lowell, MA, the 'Mill City', and the place where my funk journey really got going so many years ago. The song features the Arturia Polybrute holding down the main rhythm and bass parts, the Rhodes MKIII EK-10 on some lovely bridge chords, the MiniKorg 700fs on melodies, and the Korg PolySix bringin' in some low end on the solo section. But my favorite part is the dueling mono synth solos where the MiniKorg and OpSix battle it out (and I get a little crazy)!

Hope ya'll enjoy it!"

Acid Techno Modular Synth Jam with TR-909 and DFAM - Unpatching or How I Patch

video upload by Honeysmack

Timeline below.

"In this video I "unpatch" a little Acid Techno modular rack I've been rocking for a few months. Truth is, I didn't really unpatch, more of a "how I patch" — I walk through and explain how I use modules and their sound/function. This channel is supported by my Patreons, become a member here:

🎛 Focused modular voices 🎛
🔸 Cwejman BLD2 making the 303ish sound
🔸 Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter - mad percussion sounds
🔸 Noise Engineering Loquelic Iteritas - lead, bass or rip your head off!
🔸Michigan Synth Works SY0.5 - Pearl Syncussion clone, analog percussion secret weapon.
🔸Endorphines Queen of Pentacles - 909 inspired multi-drum voice module with effects.
🔸Moog DFAM - killer percussion and synth module with onboard 8-step sequencer.

Merely scratching the surface in this video. So strap in and grab a nice coffee or tea. It gets a little long, so perhaps my next unpatching video will dive deeper how I specifically use certain modules. Please feel free to ask!

🕹 The jam I unpatch is available here, with no talking, straight up jam: [posted here]

My modular gear and set-up is in a constant state of flux and I change up my rack every 3 months, thereabouts. That is the beauty of modular synths, you design your own synth. There are no, right or wrong ways to do this, it is all very subjective. Hence, you get an insight to my way of thinking about how I make Techno."

02:04 Audio and MIDI routings
04:09 Module overview
08:21 Intellijel Metropolis - and how I'm not a traditionally trained musician.
12:04 BLD2 focus, that's Bass -Lead & Drum Generator to earth people.
13:54 Add that 909 and jamming
15:05 Basimilus Iteritas Alter - hard to pronounce, best percussion all-rounder
18:10 Loquelic Iteritas - a tale of 2 pitches
22:52 Continue the jam, that's what we came for
24:37 Cockpit2 - mixer module with that sweet side-chain pump
27:33 SY0.5 and Queen of Pentacles, serious percussion investments, shhhhhh don't tell everyone
32:15 Queen of Pentacles, the Queen is very much alive
35:29 I do like to jam, no seriously, I do ask anyone who doesn't know me
36:06 Drummer from another mother or DFAM to you and me!
37:37 Please add 909 to that DFAM, thanks maaaaaaate
39:13 Versio - reverb from the versatile vampire
41:56 Get a little crazy jamming with the reverb

Lunaris 2, Pads Instrument for the Kontakt Player

video upload by Luftrum1

"Lunaris 2 will be released on December 9.

Lunaris 2 is the premier synth pads instrument for NI Kontakt, for that is what Lunaris 2 is all about - pads and pads only. From analog pads to digital pads, string pads, cinematic pads, 80s-inspired pads, immersive ambient pads to everything in between.

Compared to its predecessor, version 2 improves and expands with sample drag and drop import, a freshly redesigned and larger interface, and the core sounds library is now brimming with over twice as many sound sources. You will also find new effects and new features.

Lunaris 2 comes with over 480 presets (all pads!) created by fourteen world-class sound designers such as Venus Theory, Electric Himalaya, Echo Season, Bigtone, Stephan Baer, Michael Oakley, Yuli Yolo, Gahrn Audio, Lauge, Amphilium, Adam Pietruszko, S1gns of L1fe, State Azure and of course, Luftrum.

Lunaris 2 is made for and licensed to the free Kontakt Player, so you don't need the full version of Kontakt to use Lunaris 2. Lunaris 2 is installed directly in Native Access. Just enter the serial key and click install...

Users of the original Lunaris can upgrade to Lunaris 2 for a small upgrade fee. Lunaris 2 installs side-by-side with Lunaris as a separate product.

It features eight oscillators, six audio and two low frequency, split into two banks. Each oscillator features a frequency control and a mute switch to bring that voice in or out of the mix. The LFOs have controls for both rate and depth, allowing you to dial in the drone settings you want. A filter with cutoff and resonance controls shapes the characteristics of the overall drone, and a thru input allows the Drone King to interface with the rest of your pedal board. The Drone King rules supreme, providing rich drone tones with an intuitive interface, long live the king.

NOS 1982 Octave Voyetra One Mylar Front Panel

via this auction

Note, this appears to be the first mention of the Voyetra One on the site.

"This mylar front panel was made in 1982 by Octave-Plateau for their Voyetra One synthesizer that was never manufactured. This is a rare collector's item for any fan of the Voyetra Eight synthesizer and would look great framed and displayed on the wall of a studio. The layout clearly shows the complex voice architecture of the Voyetra Eight, which is not obvious from looking at the Voyetra Eight front panel.

This item is New Old Stock (NOS) and is covered with a protective film as shipped from the factory. The back has an adhesive covered with a paper protector and the manufacturer's sticker shows it was made on March 22, 1982.

The Voyetra One was originally intended to be a programmer for the Voyetra Eight but it was abandoned when Octave-Plateau decided instead to make a software voice editor for the IBM PC. For more information on the Voyetra One and Voyetra Eight, Google 'Fandom Voyetra Eight Synthesizer'."

This note is then going into #chordjam @audiomodern to generate a random chord which is sequencing #aparillosynth. Adding a bit of texture with #uasilo and #uaneedlepoint. Besides the visuals are also getting this midi impulse which modulates the playback speed using #magicmusicvisuals."

V-SCALE User Guide: Precision Active Buffer & Multiple - Fix Tracking Issues, Accurate Pitch Sharing

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Not all Buffered Multiples are created equal: The V-SCALE by AJH Synth is a precision active buffer and multiple, which can be used to correct impedance mismatches between instruments, controllers and modules that can cause inaccurate tracking/scaling of pitch CV's, leading to out-of-tune VCO's and synths. It can also compensate for synths, VCO's and VCF's that will not track a 1V/Oct CV signal accurately, by way of 4 adjustable outputs, with fine-tuning trimmers allowing a 5% positive or negative alteration. Also, it will function as a highly accurate buffered multiple, and allow the use of further passive multiples after it in the CV signal chain, without risking a loss of signal strength, which would also lead to tuning or tracking inaccuracies. Unlike many buffered multiples, the V-Scale has a very high input impedance, and a very low output impedance, so it can make the various input and output combinations of different instruments play nicely together.

WaveBoy -The Voder | The mythical Ensoniq effects - used in new ways

video upload by Espen Kraft

"The Voder effect is a bank of programmable filters that loads into the built-in effects processor of an Ensoniq EPS-16 PLUS or an ASR-10. The filters are multi-band parametric equalizers (EQs) that can be modulated in interesting ways - most notably, they can make a sound talk or sing words!

Like a classic vocoder, the Voder imposes the moving resonance of speech onto any input sound. But while the conventional vocoder uses a live vocal input to derive the control information, the Voder uses the music keyboard or MIDI.Support this channel on Patreon:"


via this auction

"This unit is unique and is the top of the line when it comes to ring-modulation and frequency shifting.

Unreal in a synth rack - it will exponentially expand your sonic pallet, adding new depth to familiar sounds.

This thing is actually too deep to describe - you need to play with it to really get it. But the sound and build of this all-analog piece is superb. If you’re a synth owner, this one unit will add a lifetime of exploration as you rediscover all your existing instruments in a new way.

"Studio Electronics custom built MIDIMINI featuring a genuine Trumansburg era R.A. Moog full back end with board 3 and board 4 harvested from Minimoog # 1190 circa 1972 along with a genuine Moog oscillator buffer board. It sports full military spec potentiometers and controls throughout and beautiful hand wiring with precision. Routine maintenance was performed mid 2022 with the power supply caps updated along with a full calibration. This will ensure longevity for it’s next owner.
With R.A. and MuSonics Minimoogs fetching 6 figures from the high end dealers in recent years, we hope the buyer ends up being one of the 1001-1200 owners for the sake of preservation.
As you can see the inside of the unit is extremely clean and flawless. The outer cosmetic condition clearly shows signs of being moved from rack to rack over the last 30 some odd years."

Oberheim DPX-1 Serviced with Floppy Emulator

"Maybe not the best cosmetically looking DPX-1 but it's a fully serviced one.

The power supply in those is badly designed, with leaking caps, unstable voltage, etc. That was all addressed and is rock solid. All other internal capacitors, including tantalum ones (known to burn) have been replaced. All capacitors are only Nichicon low ESR and Nichicon audio grade series.

The floppy emulator is installed with ~1000 of images from EMU Emulator II library. DPX-1 can load natively EII, Mirage, P2000, Akai data. When it comes to EII, it converts it to the own format which takes about a minute. This was addressed too, all EII image data is in DPX format, so, it takes no extra time for the conversion.

This is also the rare version with dedicated 8 voice outputs installed and CD-ROM interface."

Modor DR-2 drum machine & Akai MPC 1000 '' HIP HOP ''( no talking )

video upload by Dziam Bass

"Today I made some beats with Modor dr 2 drum machine.
I see most DR-2 demos are in the electronic genre so I went a step further and used the DR-2 in Hip Hop
It's a really great machine
All drums are from Modor dr-2, samples and bass from MPC1000
I don't want to say pros and cons .. just listen.

First of all: although it's digital, the DR-2 is not about sampling. It's a drum synthesizer, like a classic analog drum machine, but it uses digital sound synthesis algorithms instead of analog circuitry. There are no samples in the DR-2, and there's no sample memory.

Just like the Modor NF-1, the DR-2 is not build to recreate the classics of the past. The DR-2 uses digital sound synthesis to innovate drum sounds and rhythms. Many sounds will be recognizable. It is possible to make classic sounding bass drums, snares and rimshots. It's not difficult to program classic floorfillers with the DR-2. But with 12 synthesis parameters per drum, you'll easily find yourself creating your own individual sound."

"Waldorf Wave synth demo featuring various wavetable sounds, patches and presets. The Waldorf Wave is a huge and rare vintage wavetable synthesizer from 1993, and can create some incredible pads, soundscapes and crunchy sounds. This Waldorf Wave demo was filmed at the Vintage Synthesizer Museum in Los Angeles, September 2022.

The Waldorf Wave features digital wavetables, analog LPF and HPF filters, 16-48 voices of polyphony (depending on model), 61 keys with velocity and aftertouch, MIDI, and tons of buttons and knobs to tweak sounds to your liking.

The Waldorf Wave is a monster wavetable synthesizer in size and sound. As it is very rare and few were produced, it commands high prices on the second market. As an alternative, the Waldorf Microwave from 1989 is far more affordable.

I was lucky to have the chance to try this vintage Waldorf Wave during my visit to the Vintage Synth Museum and hope you enjoy the demo."

Manipulating Melodies With IOLabs Flux - A Dark Christmas: Variations On The Jingle Bells Tune

video upload by Friendly Noise

"Flux is an incredible rhythm generating machine, but how good is Flux at making melodies? I have tried to answer this question in two videos. In this second part I’ll show how to manipulate melodies with Flux. Flux it not your traditional one note per step sequencer, but melodies are definitively programmable and more than just 'programmable'.

Everything you hear in the video is based on the notes of the first 4 bars of Jingle Bells.

Used in the video: Soma Pulsar 23, IOLabs Flux, 4ms Ensemble Oscillator, Spherical Sound Society Vortex Generator, Joranalogue Morph 4, and Strymon Nightsky.
Some EQ and compression were added in the DAW after recording.

Here is the first part: Making Melodies With IOLabs Flux - Is That Possible?"

ARP Little Brother SN 0706

via this auction

"Designed as an expander for ARP synths such as the 2600, Odyssey, Axxe, and others

Consists of the following functions:

1 divide down oscillator that can be composed of any combination of 4 selectable octaves and 4 selectable wave shapes

1 LFO that is wired internally to modulate oscillator pitch but can be used to modulate other sources in external synths.

Interfaces with ARP’s and other compatible brands’ gear via the cv, gate and trig i/o on the back panel. To play the Little Brother as a normal synth (e.g. with envelope response) all 3 signals (cv, gate, trig) must be connected to a keyboard, sequencer or other controller. The audio output jack uses an RCA connector."
