Novation Circuit Rhythm Demo & Review

video upload by musictrackjp

DEMO by Katsunori UJIIE.

Roland Jupiter 4 - with MIDI in / Memory Extension / Detune Mods SN 780632 / 780633

via this auction

Note the serial number on the back is 780632 while the slip on the inside is 780633.

"Vintage 4-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer - with upgrades

Serial number dating it from January 1979, likely an early revision.

In great clean cosmetic condition inside and out, only a couple reasonable bumps and small chips to the wood sides, and what looks like an ancient sticker mark on top opposite the logo, nothing too eye catching overall, everything shown in the pictures.

Has the following upgrades :
- MIDI in to receive notes on channel 12
- Memory expansion accessible from an added rotary knob, 8 banks of 8 slots for a total of 64 user presets
- A Detune knob mainly useful to spread oscillators/voices further in unison mode.

220V model, fitted cable with standard European plug."

Roland System 100M Synthesizer Module 150 - Ring, Noise S&H LFO SN 112176

via this auction

"The 150 is a versatile module that provides full ring modulation and sample & hold facilities, white and pink noise generation, and an LFO (the same as featured in the 140 module). The 150 is great for random sequences or controlling the VCF cut‑off frequency while synced to the 182 sequencer module, and the Ring Modulator is the obvious choice for making a racket. There is some wear due to use such as a light paint chip and scratches, but overall you can expect to find this vintage module in great condition and full working order. No cables or other accessories are included. This module is the minimum basic elements to provide a single synthesizer voice in The 100m System."

i quite like this one

video upload by allmyfriendsaresynths

"A track I wrote on the Dirtywave M8. Audio is straight out of the wee beauty - no extra processing. The video was put together with footage that I ran through the MisMatcher Rev 01, and then re-scanned off of some CRT I have. I love how the M8 takes me in such wildly different directions, or at least, it allows me to go so many different ways when making music. I had feared it might just end up being a kind of tarted up LSDJ, but it is far, far more than that. Thanks for taking a listen."

Fizmo | Ensoniqs last and worst synth?

video upload by Espen Kraft

Thought this was an interesting example of how some people view synths as an instrument to play traditional music to, while others view synths as a sonic palate to explore. The Fismo excels at sonic exploration. It sounds alive at times. The synth is all about evolving textures and timbres. The Buchla Music Easel and Buchla's vision of a synthesiver vs. Moog comes to mind, although Buchla did choose "Music" in that title. Hmm...

The following is what Espen Kraft has to say:

"The Fizmo was the last true synthesizer from Ensoniq. In 1998 this was labeled as a Transwave synthesizer. With multiple arpeggiator patterns and glassy wavetables it sure is an ambient dog.

I must confess that I never took to this synth. Yes, it has a lot of knobs and faders and yes, you can get some decent sounds out of it. I'm usually very positive to wavetable synths, hybrid synths and arpeggio driven bells and whistles, but the OS is very messy, the wavetables themselves are way too glassy and thin and it just doesn't speak to me.

The demo track uses external drums and some external effects as well. All the sounds are indeed from the Fizmo and everything has been multi tracked, mixed and mastered."

Yamaha DX7 + TX802 + TX81Z (combo)

video upload by Sebastian Galassi

"Who says digital synths have no soul? I think that when it comes to those glossy and lush 80s-flavored songs, there is nothing better than them. And if the chosen synths are the Yamaha DX7 and close relatives then we have everything we need. Here is a small example using 3 members of the Yamaha family: DX7, TX 802 and TX81Z and the rhythm part comes from an Akai S900.

DX7 - Polysynth, DX Synth Bell, Swell Pad
TX 802 - Bass+EP Piano (Split) , Lead synth
TX 81Z - Mute Guitar

Drums - Akai S900

Reverb - Lexicon LXP15, TC Electronic M One
Delay - Digitech Studio 400
Chorus - Arion SCH-1 Stereo Chorus"

Retro Mechanical Labs: Beauty Through Pain

video upload by Richard DeHove

"This is a bit rough and I clearly don't know the controls too well. But I'm sure you know the excitement of getting a new bit of gear and hearing things fall out of it even though you're just fumbling about? It seemed a shame to let that pass by, so here it is: early days with the 'Retro Mechanical Labs Hyde Distortion Filter and Electron Fuzz Custom CV Combo' - and yes, that's its actual name. The DB-01 output is split with one side going into the filter and the other into the fuzz. Left and right then go into separate sides of the Boss RV-6 reverb pedal. There's some limiting to avoid bad surprises but otherwise the audio is raw. That means there's some clicks, pops, squeals and grinding. I hope you find as much beauty in this raw mess of pain as I did.

Jordan Rudess plays the Syner-V modern virtual synthesizer from Syntronik 2

video upload by

"Watch Jordan Rudess plays one of the classic synths of Syntronik 2 - the Syner-V. The Syner-V is based on the Digital Keyboards Synergy ii+ with its wide range of unique soundscapes and glassy, metallic tones. Although it did not officially use the term 'FM' due to Yamaha’s trademark, the Synergy did employ the same basic technology of the GS and DX series as well as the Synclavier FM synthesis."

Jordan Rudess plays the OSC-V modern virtual synthesizer from Syntronik 2

video upload by

"Watch Jordan Rudess plays one of the classic synths of Syntronik 2 - the OSC-V. The OSC-V is based on the Classic analog-filtered digital monosynth sounds of the Oxford Synthesiser Company OSCar, a British classic. Sometimes called the 'British Minimoog,' the OSCar can sound deceptively analog and ultra-fat despite its digital oscillators."

DREADBOX NYMPHES - 4 Custom Patches // NO TALKING // Raw Sounds + Effects

video upload by Lost Clouds (Tom Green Music)

"I've spent a little more time with the Nymphes now and wanted to showcase a few of the patches I've made so far - first without effects, and then with added effects from the Typhon (which I think really help the Nymphes shine).

I've got mixed feelings about the Nymphes, some really interesting features but a few unusual quirks too - let me know if you'd be interested in a review video!
