Exploring sound design with Elektron Analog 4

video upload by DATABROTH

"check out my wavetables, presets and samples on gumroad

Breaking out the Analog 4, been some time since I've used this thing, it's such a blast to jam on.
a little nerve racking doing it live, but for the most part things seemed ok
I might prefer to jam with premade tracks next time rather than making everything from scratch"

Prophet 5, Prophet 12, Prophet Rev2 - 3 Sequential Synth Trio

video upload by Mamotreco

Mamotreco Prophet 5 demos

"Enjoy a warm and relaxing Sequential synth soundtrack moment featuring the Prophet Rev 2, Prophet 5 Rev 4 and Prophet 12 in their full glory. Every synth plays to its strength, from thick bass, to crystalline melodies. Even the Prophet 12 synth sounds rich and warm thanks to its SSM filters.
The three Prophets were played at the same time in one take, and then 2 additional tracks were recorded for additional sounds.
#prophet12 #prophet5 #prophetrev2
This gorgeous Tangerine Dream-inflected synth soundtrack interlude is accompanied by evocative vintage digital photos of London sunsets and calm moments to enhance the emotive impact of the music. Photos taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ7 point and shoot camera from 2006. Featuring a 6 megapixel CCD sensor.

DIY Build #1: Music Thing Modular Mikrophonie

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!
Decided to start a new series on this channel, in which I will be building some cool synths, and then in the background of the timelapse, music will be playing featuring that piece of gear that I was building in the video. Let me know in the comments what you all this of this. I am planning on doing some more in the upcoming weeks so don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss those.
I am a noob in DIY synth building, so I decided to start with this basic kit from Music Thing Modular, which all in all took me about 2.5 hours to build, which is quite some time, but I wasn't in rush:) -
Here are some links of mine:

Phoenix and Air Yamaha CS-60?

via this auction

"Regularly maintained, and recently serviced/checked (December 2021). It belong to group Phoenix and Air

It has a kit to visualize with leds which oscillator plays to be able to tune it, indispensable because the order is random.

Physically it's in very good condition, 2-3 light marks (pictures)

The sound of this CS is wonderful."

Nice GRP A8 above it.

Signed Moog Minimoog Voyager Select Series 10th Anniversary Edition & CV Expander

via this auction

Anyone recognize the signatures?

"This is a tenth anniversary edition all-analog signal Moog synth with maple cabinet and blue LEDs (Sweetwater edition 33 of 37), designed by Bob Moog to follow up the Minimoog D. It's been kept in a smoke-free studio, very lightly used and never gigged. The CV expander requires an expansion card to be installed inside the synth (and that has been done already). Also comes with an official Voyager dust cover. Working & in excellent condition."

First Ambient Outdoor Jam Of The Year (OxiOne + iPad)

video upload by Perplex On

"I took the chance of one of the first warmer day of the year to visit the woods with the iPad and OxiOne sequencer to summon the spring. Here OxiOne in chord mode is sequencing the iPad loaded with #aparillosynth and the free #wintervoices and #winterpiano sample library for #decentsampler. Hopefully a lot more outdoor jams will happen this year."

02- The Baldwin Fun Machine- Soloists (presets) part 1

video upload by AutomaticGainsay

"Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the presets found on the Baldwin Fun Machine.

The theme music for this demonstration was created entirely with the Baldwin Fun Machine in combination with a small amount of rhythm parts assembled out of GarageBand drum loops."

Also check out the Conn Electric Band from 1974.

Hydra ♒ (ASM Hydrasynth Explorer // Elektron Digitone // Dreadbox Nymphes + Julianna // Roland TR6S)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"There are not enough synths/sequencers offering the chord memory function (i.e. memorizing chords and then playing them back with 1 note only) within a scale! As the ASM - Hydrasynth benefits from this feature, I used it to create this track 😉

I then added some FM sequences played by the Elektron - Digitone, a fat analog bass played by the Dreadbox - Nymphes (through the Julianna Chorus/Vibrato pedal) and finally drums/FX by the Roland TR-6S (the kick sound is not a sample, but uses the ACB engine to emulate the 909's kick!)

* Hardware used *
- PADS: Asm - Hydrasynth Explorer
- BELLS, CHIMES: Elektron - Digitone
- BASS: Dreadbox - Nymphes + Walrus Audio - Julianna + The Pill Pedal (triggered byt the TR6S' headphones output)
- DRUMS, FX: Roland - TR-6S
Everything was sequenced by my DAW, except for the DRUMS & FX which were sequenced by the TR6S' internal sequencer & I also used the Digitone's sequencer to do some parameter-lock."
