Akai AX60 Analog Tape Strings - #jamuary 15th, 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"This is an improvised take/tribute/rip of 'Adagio for Strings' by Samuel Barber. I think my first experience manipulating audio, of any audio production or experimentation, was taking a cassette of 'Adagio' and running it through my brother's guitar pedals.

This is played on the Akai AX-60 which I honestly bought just to to fix up and sell, but I'm tempted to keep it just for this Mellotron/Tape Strings/Flute sound I programmed. I just love how it sounds - exactly like that cassette 20 years ago.

(These videos were made each day of January 2022 and posted to Instagram on the day in the title and have since been uploaded to YouTube.)"

Arturia Microfreak & Clouds - #jamuary 11th 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"Just a little improvisation structured around the touch plate/keyboard on the Microfreak. The paraphonic filter is being opened up by the pressure in my left hand, with a little bit being opening up via the envelope that's triggered by the rhythm from my right hand. Additionally the pressure CV is being sent out to the Clouds, adding some variation for the feedback."

Downtempo Lo-Fi Circuit Tracks with Alpha Juno, TX7, and Streichfett - #jamuary 4th 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"Using the two internal synth engines and two sample tracks on the Novation Circuit Tracks along with a few layers from the Roland Alpha Juno 2, Waldorf Streichfett, and Yamaha TX7 (like a DX7 but desktop)."

Ambient Guitar and Piano with Vintage Yamaha Drum Machine #jamuary 3rd 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"Just a simple chord progression through a few pedals, set to a slow march on the vintage and somewhat obscure Yamaha Ensemble Mixer, with a little piano to round it out. Leaning heavy on the Electro-Harmonix Superego+, the Old Blood Noise Endeavors Visitor, and the Boss RE-20."

You can find pics of a Yamaha Ensemble Mixer (one owned by Moby) posted here.

Elektron Analog Four (A4) MKI Live Dawless Jam - #jamuary 10th 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"All sounds from the very powerful Elektron Analog Four (A4), original model. It's such a capable little box, I should use it more often!"

Vintage Digital Sampler 12 Track Performance - Yamaha AW16G - #jamuary 12th 2022

video upload by Tum Tum

"I'm using the excellent little Yamaha AW16G mixer as a sort of synthesizer, with an individual note from my Roland Alpha Juno 2 recorded into each track (every track with a fader, at least). I then did another pass playing the four sample pads, which each have a random pattern from the Juno recorded onto them. All sent through the Empress Reverb, Lo-Fi Blue setting."

Dreadbox Dysphonia - First Ambient Patch

video upload by Tum Tum

"All sounds from the new Dreadbox Dysphonia, with just a touch of spring reverb and maybe a hint of drive from a vintage Yamaha Ensemble Mixer. Random sequence/arpeggio coming from an Arturia Keystep. My first modular piece - this Dysphonia is pretty amazing, but let me know what you think!"

Overlooked Module #10: Dave Smith DSM03 Feedback

video upload by Poorness Studios

"This is the next video in my Overlooked Modules series and I'm taking a closer look at the DSM03 Feedback module from Dave Smith Modular. This cool little module can function as a filter, an effect, a percussion module, a string simulator, or something else entirely. Unfortunately, this module is discontinued but you can still find them on the used market.

Poorness Studios Overlooked Module posts


video upload by leonardoworx

"This is a 'funky' beat for the real Hip Hop heads, remembering times when i used to dance with other b-boys!All the sounds (except for the drums) are made with the Prophet-5 rev.4 , then sampled and arranged on the Akai MPC One.

Plus: i made another patch on the P5 in order to jam via midi with the MPC pads (with reverb and delay from the AvalancheRun V2)."

Just for fun 😂 - Sequential Prophet X - Beautiful Sine Wave - Prophet Motive - Maybe some Star Trek

video upload by KeyRides

"Well, seriuosly - I think the Sinewave of the Prophet sounds beautiful.
Although the Oscillators are digital, they sound really beautiful.

While programming a totally different patch, I had to programm a sine wave patch to complete it.

That was the moment where I lost it and started fooling around with the sound and memories of a very special 90´s movie and my favourite Sci-Fi franchise came to mind 😂

Don´t take life too serious - remember to just have fun from time to time 😊"

"The iconic ARP 2600 is an undeniable classic, 50 years old and going strong. Here in their full glory are our pair of Tonus-era ARP 2600 semi-modular synthesizers (the 2600 on the left was formerly Jack Bruce's) running in tandem with our ARP 1613 Sequencer along with the Arturia KeyStep, KORG SDD-3000 digital delay and Roland MX-1 performed by EMEAPP associate director and sound designer Vince Pupillo Jr.. This performance was created for and featured in the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation's ARP 2600 virtual 'Synthposium' on September 18, 2021 which celebrated the 50th anniversary of this legendary instrument. Both of our organizations are dedicated to preserving the legacies of electronic music pioneers and we are proud to be a partner with Dina Pearlman and her dedicated team who do wonderful work in uplifting the life and legacy of Alan R.

RSF Kobol Expander Vintage Analog supreme excellence!

"One of the best sounding synths of all time.

Tight snappy, yet full and electronics sounding.
One of the best Low pass filters of all time (Moog 904A might be better! ;-)

Runs on 240V (adapter required if you are in the USA).

Excellent condition. Some smudge on the upper VCA for OSC 1.

Lower right corner has a ding.

Sounds sublime, would not sell unless we kept another vintage Kobol Expander in stock ;-)"

Radel 4 String Electronic Drone Machine Digital Tanpura

video upload by dainryan

via this auction

"Here’s something you don’t see every day. Unless you live in India in which case you might actually see it every day. This is a weird ass shaped drone machine that makes sounds just like you’ve heard on all those Indian classical records you kids listen to. It’s basically a four note sequence (with an option to add a fifth tunable string to the mix) that repeats in different patterns and changes very slowly…Which is AWESOME. It also has four touch sensitive “strings” that you can make your own sequences on. (Basically you make contact with a metal strip on the side with your thumb and then touch the strings) There is also a “speaker out” so you can run it through a Marshal stack or fuzz pedals."

I purposely avoided any other creators' mutant deep dives, for fear I would steal their ideas or their explanations.

My complaints about the manuals chosen descriptors is probably just an issue for me, but it felt worth while to mention it.
