Buchla Tiptop Audio 258t Dual Oscillator

video upload by Todd Barton

"This is a mini-series on the basics of the new Buchla & Tiptop Audio modules. First up was the 281t Quad Function Generator now onto the 258t Dual Oscillator. I'm really enjoying these modules and Tiptop has enthusiastically embraced the Buchla paradigm. The oscillators are sounding great and squarely in the Buchla ballpark."

PWM Malevolent // ALL sounds form this little devil!

video upload by Starsky Carr

"A quick demo of the sonic capabilities of the new PWM Malevolent. Everything you hear in this is from the synth... even the kicks which is unusual as its normally difficult to get anything so punchy for a 4 to the floor beat."

Hologram Microcosm: Creating and Manipulating Samples with Digitakt

video upload by Hologram Electronics

"Microcosm can transform simple sound sources into unique and creative sample material. In this video, we run a Kalimba through Microcosm and record a short sample within the Elektron Digitakt. Using the Digitakt, we mangle the sample and sequence it into a pattern (shoutout @BlankFor_ms for the other sample tracks in this project!) In a stroke of curiosity/excessiveness, we routed the resampled track through Microcosm again and captured it in a jam in the second half of the video."

video upload by Poorness Studios

"Continuing with my Jamuary series, this is video #3 for the third Friday in January. In this jam, I used the modular synthesizer along with a glockenspiel and a Volca Bass to create a spacey soundscape. Please excuse the odd camera angle but I was having problems getting everything in frame."

E-MU Systems Emulator II+ w/ HxC Floppy Emulator & 260 Floppy Disks SN 2707

via this auction

"Legendary vintage 8 voice 12bit sampler with analog filters

Included extras/upgrades :

- HxC floppy Emulator installed + loaded SD card
- Original top row second floppy driver still included and working, as possible spare.
- About 260 floppy disks, essentially containing banks (mostly user made or copied, so some are sounding professional right off the bat, others perfectible, others in progress etc.) + a few blanks, filed by category with interlayers labelled in french, in 3 dedicated plastic drawers.
- Original cool english user manual in superb condition, all pages and tabs very crisp, still with the unreturned warranty card.
- brand new uninstalled backlit LCD (never got around to having it done by a technician), not pictured

In very clean cosmetic condition, only a few superficial marks here and there as displayed in the pictures.

I could be the second owner as I purchased it locally about 5 years ago through an intermediary from an older musician that had used it in his studio in the 80's for commercial work (as a few of the included floppies might attest) and then had kept it unused."

Dynacord ADD-One : Advanced Digital Drum Synthesizer sound demo

video upload by Cro w

"Audio is direct out from the ADD-One into the interface.
The lagging of audio in the first half is what happens when using the internal sequencer AND tweaking parameters at the same time (remember this is mid-80's CPU power ha). When sequenced/triggered externally (as demonstrated in the second half), there is no lagging of course.
The ADD-One is a real beast of an electronic percussion instrument. It's a thick and rather high-end sound that is interestingly vintage yet modern at once. It doesn't sound 'period' or dated like other classic drum synthesizers and samplers of the 1980's, and gets avant-garde and experimental easily, if your into that. If not, you're really gonna hate the bulk of the video... haha

THE NEW VINTAGE: Roland JX-08 / JU-06A / JP-08

video upload by Alba Ecstasy

"#Ambient #Patches for the Roland Boutiques πŸ‘‰
The #RolandJX08 is playing two sequences (part A&B), Roland JU-06A one sequence line and the JP-08 is bringing the lead to the table!
All recorded via USB AUDIO.
Only using Arturia Intensity as reverb for the JP-08 and Waves H-Delay as stereo delay for JU-06A. The JX-08 runs on its own internal effects.

❤️, ae

My conclusions after one week of tweaking the Roland JX-08:
Underestimated because of their size - and for a good reason - anyone who has been open minded enough to the Boutique concept (not me at that time!), soon after they put their hands on such a replica, discover that Roland Boutique sounds huge!

I had my doubts and I even have laughed when the first Boutiques were released.
I tried all the synths formats for the last 20+ years, and let me tell you that small synths does not have a place in my operating theatre! All the time I tend to ignore them, and they're just decorating my studio. Now I own most of the Boutiques and I'm looking to grow my collection (especially with the "collectible" ones!)!

The extended polyphony makes the difference!
Not saying about the two sequencer lines for both parts, the arpeggiator, 3 types of filter, plenty of nice effects and other extras!

Small? Yes! Capable? Very yes!"

BLEASS Omega Synthesizer - User-Friendly FM Synthesis

video upload by BLEASS

"If you think FM Synthesis is complicated, it’s time to think again!

BLEASS Omega places all of the sparkle, character, nuance and dynamic expressiveness of FM Synthesis at your fingertips, and does away with the arcane programming interfaces so often associated with FM. Harnessing BLEASS’ signature GUI technology, creating and crafting sounds in Omega is not just easier than with other FM synths, it’s easy – PERIOD!

All of the classic capabilities of FM Synthesis are available in BLEASS Omega – expressive electric pianos, deep thundering basses, crystal-clear pads, sparkling bells, and soulful leads. And thanks to the instrument’s analogue-style Waveshaper and multi-mode Filter, BLEASS Omega can inject powerful analogue-like flavour into those pure FM tones, giving searing filter sweeps, growling distortions, and harmonically-rich resonances.

The four FM operators that sit at the heart of BLEASS Omega are edited simultaneously from within a single screen, with all operator envelopes and controls available to the touch of your finger. This amazingly user-friendly approach makes light work of sound editing, and encourages experimentation and exploration in a way no other FM synth can achieve.

With eleven FM algorithms on offer, each providing a different way of interconnecting the four operators for radically different results, the sonic scope of BLEASS Omega is vast. The included library of over 200 professionally designed presets makes full use of this versatility, furnishing you with a varied and inspirational sound palette to use in your music making and sound design projects.

BLEASS Omega fits in with your workflow and studio setup, no matter how you like to create. The iOS edition provides both standalone and AUv3 versions for use on iPad and iPhone, whilst the desktop edition for Windows and macOS comes as a VST3/AU plugin instrument, compatible with all major DAWs."
