via this auction

"Dave Smith / Sequential 4-voice Mopho keyboard synth for sale. The Mopho X-4 is like a wilder Prophet 08 with its dual sub-oscillators and feedback. Polychain Tetra or Mopho modules for additional polyphony, if you like. Also make a very nice MIDI controller interface."

FM40P mkIII by NYZ

"Originally released January 17, 2022 available as limited physical edition CDr & name your price abridged digital on Psøma Psi Phi =>

Unabridged digital only edition.

'In a third volume of his ongoing FM40P series of recordings, Dave Burraston continues to explore a myriad of tangents and timbres within the Yamaha V50, TX81Z and FB-01 machines - all of them uniquely apart from one another, their commonality being their identities as four-operator digital FM synthesizers. FM synthesis is well known for both its ability to convey otherwise impossible sounds and its general unapproachability as pure programming and sound design. Through this lens of context, Burraston's ability to direct these machines towards unforeseen and inexplicable pathways says much about the rarity of recordings like these. On a deeper level, Burraston is perhaps always testing, measuring, adjusting and analyzing, interacting with synthesis and its many vessels. Acting with the interests of both musician and scientist, NYZ brings us always to fresh perspectives and sonic locations that feel as if they are entirely new, often alien, but never predictable or repetitive. It's a lot to consider, as music and also as concept, but at the end of the day, you can always count on NYZ recordings for their utterly uncompromising sense of displacement and dizzying enchantment.'

released January 17, 2022

Generated during various sessions on 1-3 Jan 2021, 24 Feb 2021 and Oct 2013 at Noyzelab. Yamaha V50, Yamaha TX81Z, Yamaha FB-01 and MANIAC [custom sysex code for fractional note tuning/timings]. Mixed early Jan 2022 at Noyzelab in the hazement annex. Text and cover design by ABM&D. This is Psoma Psi Phi number NYZ-XVII. David Burraston and the Noyzelab logo appear courtesy of Noyzelab."

E-mu Proteus/1XR Demo - ProtoLogic Presets (Bank 1)

video upload by Python Blue

"New video for the new year. This synthesizer demo covers a rarity I recently got my hands on: an E-mu Proteus 1XR expanded with the Protologic board by InVision Interactive, giving it 128 additional presets (a grand total of 512!) and additional samples that help get it close to the later General MIDI standard.

This video covers every preset from the first bank of 64 presets. If enough interest is given, I will cover the other half in a later video."

Octatrack Tutorial Video: Mixer, FX Box, External Remixer!
video upload by

"In this video I share how I use the Octatrack to mix and remix my other Elektron boxes live. This practice allows you to get the most out of 1 pattern and also teaches you the fundamentals of the Octatrack. You will learn how to create record trigs, one shot trigs, using the record menu, setting up THRU machines and Neighbor tracks, set up the Freeze Delay, record external gear perfectly quantized and the Octatrack 'crossfade trick' to bring it all together."

Noodlebox: new favourite sequencer

video upload by allmyfriendsaresynths

"I am a big fan of alternative ways of sequencing, especially those with grids - or with a grid style, and so when I spotted the Noodlebox at Signal I knew I had to buy it. The Noodlebox is a dedicated standalone sequencer specifically designed with Eurorack systems in mind. It has a ton of features, is nice and portable, a really interesting interface, and is probably the best value modular sequencer out there.

In this video I talk about why I bought it, give a bit of a demo of its basic operations, and highlight some of its most interesting features (as well as a couple of things to consider if you're interested in buying one)."

Moog The Source SN 1042

via this auction

"This is a Moog The Source analog synth from 1981. My research indicates this would've been the 42nd unit produced. This was inherited from a friend and I don't have a lot of backstory on its history.

This keyboard was recently serviced by a certified Moog technician and is fully functional. The blue tape and service sticker were leftover from that service and have been removed since the pictures were taken. I've left the "Put Some Bass In Your Face" sticker as its clearly been there forever, but it could easily be removed.

Model 341A
Serial: 1042"

Roland JD-800 Digital Synthesizer SN AD02711

via this auction

"Fully restored/serviced Roland JD-800 with a road case. This was not a quick once over, well over a dozen hours went into completely rebuilding this synthesizer. The future owner of this JD-800 will NEVER have to worry about the red glue issue or a ribbon cable heat seal failure again! These two issues plague nearly all JD-800s and this one was no different. So we replaced the entire key contact circuit board with a brand new replacement by SuperSynthProjects (see photo). A replacement ribbon cable connector board was also installed. The red glue was completely sealed with a thick layer of two part epoxy and the key bed feels amazing. This JD will never suffer from the dreaded red glue issue again!

Roland JD-08 Boutique Sonic LAB Review

video upload by sonicstate

"The JD-800 was a flagship in Roland's range - introduced in 1991 costing around $2900!
The JD-08 takes that and squishes it into the Boutique format - removing the ribbons controls to make space for the faders, buttons and knobs. With up to 128 note polyphony, four tones, per patch and two separate layers and USB audio it adds more 21st century features.

This Is 52 //Subharmonicon/Mother 32/STO/Plaits/Rings/Mosaic/Mimeophon/Magneto/Stages/Chance/Maths//

video upload by Aleatoric Machine

"Eurorack modular synthesizer performance.
Variations on 3 different 4 note sequences.
Moog Subharmonicon generates the 2 primary rhythmic sequences, running through Strymon Magneto. Sub 1 of the first sequence runs through its own output, then through 2hp MMF and Make Noise Optomix for the rhythmic bass line.
Moog Mother 32 generates the descending drone sequence, which is doubled by Make Noise STO tuned up an octave, both run through Chase Bliss Mood, tuned up a fifth.
Mutable Instruments Rings follows the pitch of the descending sequence, with a bouncing ball rhythmic pattern generated by Make Noise Maths and Function, then run through Make Noise Mimeophon. The drifting harmonic tone on top (unison, +5, +12) is the result of modulating the structure of the Rings sound.
Mutable Instruments Plaits chimes the fifth at the beginning of every 8 bars, as well as being trigger by the end of rise on the Function.
Drums are coming from Mosaic Bass, Snare & Hi-Hat modules, sequenced by Intellijel Steppy 1U. Decay on Hi-Hat is a 7 step pattern generated by Mutable Instruments Stages.
The volume and filter cutoff for the drums and rhythmic bass are controlled by Make Noise Pressure Points, with decay slew controlled by a second Make Noise Maths.
Lots of modulation across different parameters is generated by Ornament & Crime and Qu-Bit Chance.
I think that's it."

Yamaha RS 7000 Groovebox #1 Style Demo "Berlin Techno I"

video upload by Kosmokatze

"Just noodling around with my old Groovebox using some Styles.
Out of the Box, no external FX used.
Is there any community or does anyone else use this thing in the studio?
Still like the uncomplicated way to get some useful results."
