G&T and Squid Salmple - Funky Slap Bass / Patch Tip

video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video I share patch tips for G&T by After Later Audio and the Squid Salmple by ALM Busy Circuits, and how they can work well together to make a funky slap bass style patch that is keyboard playable. G&T is great for turning any keyboard patch into an expressive press/release reactive patch."

Meet the Destiny+ 16 PSYCHE

video upload by kirkis

This one was spotted and sent in via Meska.


"16 PSYCHE manifolds a structureless structure at infinite convergence of causal invariance in the frequency domain.

The core 16 configurations of 16 PSYCHE expose the diversity of the proto core* and the rich experimentation to gain using the 5 pillars of its foundation in depth. The infinity function groupoids, quadrilateral non linear transfer functions, twisted division ring of fractions, through zero phase modulation and non linear resonant feedback windows.

Although not limited to 16 configurations the evolution of the chosen system is a kin to a multiway infinity, defined only by the isomorphic relationship of user and machine, however it should be noted that 16 PSYCHE obtains suitable nodes for trajectories towards complex feedback and modulation far beyond previously known orbits.

Abbreviated proto-core* mathematics.

For more information on 16 PSYCHE, stock, build time or future destiny+ electronic musical devices please reach out to the center of destiny+"

The John Bowen Interview | Legendary Synth and Sound Specialist, New Solaris OS, Demos, & Prototype

video upload by Espen Kraft

"John Bowen is the man behind those Sequential factory synth preset sounds heard on so many classic tracks. The Prophet 5, Prophet VS, Six-Trak etc.
He later worked on the Korg Wavestation, Korg Oasys, the Creamware DSP plugin synths and finally his own hardware synth, the Solaris.
You've heard his sounds more times than you know.

In this interview you can hear how it all started, all the funny stories, and what happened in California in the 70s, at Sequential Circuits in the 80s and at Korg in the 90s. And more."

You can find v2.0.3 update details here:

The following are a couple of videos featuring the Solaris, the first featuring on the John Bowen site.

"Improvisation with a 'Noodle'-Sound, done with the SOLARIS.
One Sound, one take, no external fx."

And one more with a Nonlinear Labs C15 and Waldorf Quantum:

And last but definitely not least, some pics of the Solaris prototype via the John Bowen Synth Design forum where you'll find additional pics:

"I came across some of the old Solaris prototype photos, and I thought people might enjoy seeing them!

We introduced the Solaris at the Frankfurt Musik Messe at the end of March 2007. The original design features 2 rows of knobs below the Envelope section, so that you could easily adjust filter and amp envelopes without having to select them individually. (Note there are only 3 EG select buttons, as the idea was to select them in pairs.)

The wood sides were more rounded, as you can see these were quite nice, but a bit too expensive for production. The graphics of the front panel featured a design from my childhood friend, John Heisch (viewable on the left side). Also, the original silk screen for the front panel was not to my liking, so I requested an 'emergency' job from Axel Hartmann to revise the graphics look for the show (which he did just 2 weeks prior to the show!).

We went through 5 prototype stages, arriving at the production version you know now. It was quite the journey!"

The Behringer 2600 On The Hans Zimmer Live Tour - With Pedro Eustache

video upload by Behringer

Looks like two TiNRS Fenix systems in the background.

"Dan recently headed to London's O2 Arena to interview Wind Synthesist and Composer Pedro Eustache, currently on tour with the legendary composer, Hans Zimmer.

Pedro takes us through the Behringer products (2600, BD440, UMC1820) he uses in his setup and how they all play a massive part in not only the Hans Zimmer Live concerts but also in many scores, including the Oscar-winning score for 'DUNE'.

As a Wind Synthesist, Pedro shows how expressive and versatile the 2600 can be when controlled via his Lyricon wind controller.

Later in the interview, we also meet Juan Garcia-Herreros (The Snow Owl) who in 2019, won Best Bass Player in the World. Juan also discusses how Behringer products continue to play a big part in his professional musical career.

Behringer EMS VCS3 SYNTHI Putney Clone Nearing Completion - 50 Synths In the Works

Some news on the upcoming VCS3 clone & upcoming synths from Behringer:

"Wow, we’re getting close with this beauty.
Here’s our final pre-production model which will now go to our beta testers for final sign-off.
This synth took a particularly long time, as the mechanical construction of the matrix plus the recreation of analog circuitry was very complex and needed several iterations.
Our UK analog expert John Price, spent over two years to meticulously recreate the sound of the original unit, while also adding many additional functions as you can see from the front panel.
While we don’t have a final shipping date yet, we wanted to share this news with you so you know we haven’t forgotten this synth jewel.
We hope you love this synth as much as we do 🙂"


"We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your patience. We have seven hard working teams simultaneously working on over 50 synths.

While the current component situation is very challenging, we are committed to bring all those synths to life and at the most favorable prices possible.

Just give us some time to make these synth dreams come true. And so much more is coming as we’re just warming up! Thank you for all the support and love we receive from you every day. You are the reason why we do what we do"

Casio CZ-1000

via this auction

"This was also one of the very first digital synths to compete head-to-head sonically with analog keyboards. It is similar to the CZ-101 but the 1000 has full-sized keys and better controls. It also has strap buttons so you can rock it as a keytar!!

I bought this keyboard in the early 1990s from Rogue Music on 30th Street in New York City. I believe I am the second owner. It has never been used on a gig since I have owned it but has been sitting on a stand in my studio with a plastic cover over it when not in use. All functions work great and it is still in great cosmetic shape (some scuffs here and there but otherwise very nice), especially for a nearly 40-year-old keyboard!"

Moog MicroMoog Vintage Monophonic Analog Synthesizer w/ Original Manual & Road Case

via this auction

"Operational Condition: Fully-Functioning

Cosmetic Condition: Excellent condition with some dings and scratches on the casing and the controls. Two of the keys are ever so slightly uneven from the others but it is only noticeable if you sight them straight on and not when you're in normal playing position, The keys all operate fine. The ribbon controller has a slight wrinkle or something in (we've never seen a MicroMoog without a blemish on the ribbon controller. They all seem to have them) but it works just fine. Overall condition is an 8.5 out of 10.

Case: Case is a great fit and is in excellent shape. It has Moog sticker on it. Manual is original and cool but the ring binding has come off and the pages are loose."

"Fully Functional. Tested trigger inputs with Roland tr606 and everything sounded as it should. Cannot confirm or deny but rumored to have been used by Prince. I left the pencil markings on front of face plate due to this (may be from him) although they could easily be rubbed off. Check the picture of the label from studio it was used by, allegedly rented to Prince for sessions."
