Roland Jupiter-4 Compuphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The legendary Roland Jupiter 4. It's been a dream writing and recording with this unit. The tone is undeniably rich. Everything works as it should; I've never had any issues whatsoever. As you can see, there are some cosmetic marks, especially on the wooden panels on the side. It was serviced prior to my original purchase, two years ago, in Toronto."

"What is BlueARP DM
BlueARP DM (DM stands for Desktop Module) is an advanced 8-channel pattern arpeggiator with a core derived from BlueARP plugin (which has been around since 2012). This is a result of 4 years of development and 1 year of beta-testing and fine-tuning. It is a boutique device, hand-manufactured in small quantities. Currently available in two colors: semi-transparent blue and white with black engravings.

BlueARP DM delivers 8 independent arpeggiators (or instances) in a single box; each of these instances is essentially a separate BlueARP plugin. It shares the core logic programmed in C with the plugin, but delivers rock-solid MIDI timing, thanks to its powerful Cotrex-M4 ARM CPU, and some extra stuff like CV/Gate connectivity to modular synths. BlueARP DM has plenty of connectivity for such a small box.

2 midi input and 4 midi output ports;
USB A port accepting USB-MIDI controllers;
4 analog outputs acting as CV or gates;
analog input to accept pulse clock from the modular;
SD Card to store and recall presets;

BlueARP DM a self-contained hardware device: you can edit, save and recall arpeggio patterns on the unit without a computer. Its interface a ‘old-school’ and it was inspired by early-days music computers and hardware sequencers. Still there’s enough space on two large 256×64 pixel OLED screens. For example, this is a pattern editing page."

What remains | Spectralis II and Prophet 12 somber downtempo electronic music

video upload by MIDERA

"Today I spoke with my mom - and it's just... hard to see parents age (I lost my dad about 12 years ago now). Sometimes it seems like, maybe he was the lucky one to go when he was younger and didn't have these problems. Pain just seems to turn into the daily terror, haunting every part of your life. I sit here and know there's nothing I can do, except sit here and listen, and hope that things improve... and yet, we are all tending towards that end....

As for this track - well, I've been trying to get back into using the Spectralis in different ways. Here, I've taken all the drums, routed them into the 12db MM filter and used the HP filter with resonance at 100% And the cutoff around 30db, which really causes the bass to come out. Piano and strings from the Spectralis as well.

All sounds sent through Eventide Blackhole VST."

Korg M1R Music Workstation Digital Synthesizer Module SN 005902 w/ Original Box

via this auction

"A small patch of display segments are missing in the middle of the screen (pictured). Not really affecting the readability. Includes original box, rack ears, and model ID cards.

In 1988 Korg released the M1R Musicworkstation rackmount synthesizer. It featured everything from the M1 Musicworkstation minus the keyboard.The expansion slots were similar however the M1R uses the M1R-EX package over the M1's M1-EX edition.

Considered by Korg to be the first workstation type of instrument where it kept everything completely self contained with it's own built in sounds and effects while also able to connect outside itself through MIDI.

M1 sounds features 16 voices in single mode and 8 voices in double mode. It also has Combination mode which allows the user to play up to 8 single programas layered or split across it's 61 key keyboard.

The high quality digital PCM samples offer a variety of acoustic, synthesizer, and drum/percussion sounds. It also has a wide variety of onboard effects with 2 effects blocks. the instrument also features 2 expansion slots using Korg's proprietary ram and rom cards. 1 slot for sample rom expansion and the other for program/combination expansion for up to an extra 100 each. The sequencer offered up to 77,000 events but was reduced to 44,000 when the memory is allocated to 100 programs/combinations."
