Prophet 10 - Moog Voyager - Doepfer Dark Time - Demo - No Talking

video upload by SMV Producer

"In this demo, the Dark Time is in 2x8 mode. The upper row is controlling the gate and the pitch of the Prophet 10, while the second row is repeating one step continuously and controlling the Moog Voyager. It is a live performance, so everything was recorded together, while the video was edited later, because i have only one camera and i could not take my synths in one shot."

"You can do this on any synthesizer with two Oscillators and two LFOs with a basic mod matrix! I came across Sound while working on a track recently and I had to hit pause and show you how I made this patch. So hopefully you'll be able to sound design this onto one of your instruments.

VSMI - Vintage Synths Made in Italy Live Stream 1/1/22

video upload by VSMI - Vintage Synths Made in Italy

Anyone ID the synth to the top left of the Cordovox Moog White Elephant?

Update: looks like it's a Welson "Symphony" as seen at the one minute mark in The Forgotten Synthesizers Of Marche Region.

Not sure what he's playing on the shelf with the blue panels. Thought it might be a Siel Opera 6, but the spacing is wrong.

Update via gridsleep in the comments: "Blue synth is a Jen Synx 508, featured in the site previously."

Moving On

video upload by Martin Peters

"The initial idea for this track is that it uses a 4 chord progression centered around the note E to give the music some variation. The chords are Em, C, C#m and D Major Add 9. I recorded several takes last week with a solo on the Minimoog but I was never satisfied or could not get the solo right. Last week I also got the Boss SY-200 Synthesizer pedal for I was curious what it could do. After using it a week I have got mixed feelings on the pedal but maybe I have got to explore it a little bit more. I am not a big fan of using guitars in electronic music, but in this video I use it for the solo part. It's not perfect but I wanted to get this track out and move on with other things, hence the title.

Anyways, the track starts with a bass on the, percussive noise from the Korg ARP Odyssey and a sequence from the Tom Oberheim SEM. After that sequences are added from the Weston Precision Audio PAO and Verbos Harmonic Oscillator Eurorack modules, the DSI Mopho, the Moog Prodigy and the Modular. The strings are from the Roland JD-800. The guitar solo is performed on a Gibson Les Paul Studio through the Boss SY-200 pedal with some 'Pat Metheny like' sound. Hope you will like it.

You can listen or download the track on Bandcamp:"

It is really well designed and a heckuva lot of fun. Special thanks for Glen and Brach from ZDL for being great to work with."

Lets F*** S*** UP!!! w/ Tiptop Audio's ModFX FSU Eurorack FX Module

video upload by

"FSU eurorack FX module from Tiptop Audio is a beast when it comes to creative audio processing and sound design. Simple yet very effective, destructive but easily tamed to give your sound a surprising flavor or turn your carefully designed sound on it's head.
In this video I am using Distortion and Glitch banks to process almost every sound as well as ZVERB tails in a new track. This is the first video about FSU, there will be more as I can't get enough of it!"

MOOG MULTIMOOG Synthesizer Keyboard

via this auction

Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"The keyboard was rebuilt and the key contacts were cleaned. All pots and switches were cleaned and lubed. The power supply was recapped as a preventative measure. The unit was recalibrated. The original rubber feet were replaced. Once this item has sold, we will need 1-2 weeks for our tech to give it a final checkup (in addition to the 10 business days or so we need to pack and ship items).

As you can see, the front panel overlay is warped. We would have replaced it but couldn't find anyone selling replacements.

This unit will be in full working order when it leaves here, no excuses typical of most vintage gear sales these days."

"Here's a rare Poly in near perfect condition. The only issue I can report is one key is ocasionally sensitive when not struck confidently and may double trigger. A clean would fix this easily. Otherwise, this Poly is in perfect condition."

Metasonix R-53 Vacuum Tube Waveshaper

via this auction

"The R-53 is directly derived from our legendary TM-1 device.

It uses a 12AF6/BD6 remote-cutoff pentode and a 12AV7 dual triode. Waveshaping is provided by a vacuum-tube "pulser" circuit that spits irregular pulses onto the input waveform. They synchronize erratically with the input pitch (if a waveform with sharp transitions is used). Combined with true vacuum-tube circuit distortion, this can provide a vast range of complex, aggressive distortion effects, utterly unique in the world.

A basic ring-modulation function is also available in the unit--applying a carrier pitch from an external oscillator to the screen grid of the pentode, this allows making inharmonic sum-and-difference pitch sound effects, with a unique vacuum tube pentode sound."
