US 395 and Califorhia Highway 14: Small Lake to Red Rock Canyon, Mojave Desert

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We travel south on US Highway 395 and California Highway 14 in the high desert from the vicinity of Small Lake to the entrance of Red Rock Canyon State Park. Here US 395 emerges onto a wide desert plane near the border between Inyo and Kern Counties. It then splits from the northern end of CA 14, which was once part of US 6.

The original music is based on a rhythm based on Indian classical thekas with 14 beats, including Rupak and Āṛāchārtāl. It features the following instruments:
Yamaha RX5 Drum Machine
Kilpatrick Audio Carbon Sequencer
Octave CAT analog synthesizer
Arturia Pigments
Arturia Stage 73 V and Wurli V
Crank Sturgeon Pocket Gamelan
Strymon StarLab
Rossum Electro-Music Morpheus Z-Plane Filter
Metasonix RK5 Dual Low Pass Gate
Folk Tok Envelope Follower
EastWest Sounds Hollywood Orchestra contra-bassoon
Aberrant DSP Digitalis

"I've been working on this percussive patch for a few days.
It wasn't until this evening that I thought to see/hear what was going on underneath all of this by opening the volume pots on
the Lo Pass Gates.

And the press release:

Eplex7 DSP has released Psychedelic FM Superesonator plugin VST synthesizer.

FM synthesizer sounds are one of mostly used elements in psytrance / darkpsy / hitech or psycore music. But classic saw osc FM sounds are sounding very similar and boring after you heard the same sound in set 100x. Many synthesizers have average quality filters (comparing to DSP-chip – Motorola or Sharc, based hardware synthesizers). So we recreated these hardware dsp + analog hardware filters for precise, clean, liquid and sharp sound that cuts through mix.

Psychedelic FM Superesonator do not create FM razor sounds with basic oscillators but use special super additive oscillators where you can „Draw“ your own oscillator! Stunning 128 high resolution drawbars available to create almost unlimited sound variations.

Create FM razor synths in endless sound variations extremely fast, draw your own additive oscillators real-time!

Hey, it's been a while. Here's a chill little jam on the Circuit.

There are a few cuts in the video. To avoid artifacts when transitioning between sessions, I stop playback in one session, let the FX tail off, and switch to the next session. I then combine the old session FX tail and new session in post."

Oberheim Two Voice Pro - TVS Pro 2017

via this auction

"This Tom Oberheim TVS-Pro -- or Two Voice Pro-- is in immaculate condition with no issues whatsoever.

It has been professionally used in my synth studio since being brand new in 2017. I'm the original owner. Both SEM's tune perfectly and hold well through hours of use. As you can see, the patch panel really expands the capabilities allowing you to route velocity to different places for example.

Tom Oberheim himself said these were made from the exact same schematics and electronic parts values from the originals. While I haven't tried this myself, apparently an original SEM from the 70's can work if you swap them out. I have used it mostly in "dual mono" mode for the world's best stereo mono synth lines. Duplicating the settings on both SEM's make this a huge stereo sound since each SEM is analog and slightly different. It is in my top 5 synths of all time.

There are less than 250 of these in existence and perhaps the best version of a Two Voice.

It has the final firmware updates: Keyboard v24a and Seq v30 from 2018"

Roland SH-32 Wave Acceleration Synthesizer

via this auction

"The SH-32 uses new Wave Acceleration Synthesis to overcome the limited polyphony and sounds of modeling-based synths. You get up to 32 voices, plus 67 waveform variations from traditional analog waves to entirely new waveforms like Spectrum and variable Noise. And when combined with the new Subsonic mode found in the suboscillator section, you can create everything from thick bass sounds to entirely new sounds not possible on traditional synthesizers. There’s even drum maps with samples taken from the TR-808/909 Rhythm Composers."

Oberheim is Back!

video upload by Oberheim Official

"You heard that right: Oberheim is back. And a new chapter is about to begin.

Brought to you by Tom Oberheim, former Oberheim engineers Marcus Ryle (co-founder of Line 6/co-creator of the ADAT) and Tony Karavidas, with Sequential’s Dave Smith and his team.

Visit to sign up for updates on what’s in the works.

And get ready to party like it’s 2099.


Video Cast: Tom Oberheim, Marcus Ryle, Dave Smith, and Tony Karavidas.
Music by Julian (J3PO) Pollack"

Why this matters: in case it's not obvious, the Oberheim brand and lineage is back with the rightful owner. Moog was first, followed by Sequential, and now Oberheim. Bob Moog did business as Big Briar until he managed to secure the Moog name back. Dave Smith did business as Dave Smith Instruments until acquiring the Sequential name back. And Tom Oberheim did business as Tom, until now. He now has the rights to the Oberheim brand and has the support of others to build new Oberheim products. We now have the original Moog, Sequential, and Oberheim brands back with the original legacy.

P.S. Nice coasters!

P.P.S. Curious what synth we are hearing in the trailer... :)

Update: Looks like it is indeed a new Oberheim. via @iamj3po:

"If you know me, you know how much I love synths. I could not be happier than to help announce that OBERHEIM HAS OFFICIALLY COME BACK!!! I’ve had the great pleasure and honor to work with them on the new secret sauce that will be coming out 😉 and if you want to hear it…well I composed the music for this little video, and I did the whole thing with the new instrument (except for the kick and snare, which are Oberheim DMX samples). If you like synths, and especially if you like Oberheim…this should make your day! Be sure to follow the new Oberheim IG page @oberheim_electronics … more soon ❤️"

"Exploring looped envelopes and synched LFO's ten free presets. Download here
Each segment in the video starts with the preset and then demonstrates how they can be morphed into all sorts of related rhythmic loops. (just experiment and keep the DAW recording!) Just four examples are given in the video, there are ten in the downloadable link. Intended to spice up more conventional kick snare and hi hat patterns. the presets are named by BPM, synch to your DAW at those tempos otherwise they will not sound right. Several of them will work at other tempos but a few get a bit messy and random at different speeds. Have fun."

"The new LUMAMIX it's the last addiction to the Lumanoise family, a four channel mixer with send\return and a resonant equalizer, inspired by the Polymoog resonator section.
Available also in euro rack format 8HP, audio from the camera, more infos:"

"Lumamix has four jack\mini jack audio input, jack\mini jack send\return, the send out it's pre the resonant equalizer and the return can be seen as 5° input.

The main output it's mono jack or stereo mini jack, all the channels go through the resonant equalizer where you can select the type of filter, low pass, band pass, high pass and the frequency range low, medium, high. The equalizer can resonate, and the cut-off can be controlled via the Light Dependent Resistor, the LDR can be activated with the switch.

The gain knob set the level before the equalizer.

We can also offer the Lumamix in Euro Rack format.

The Resomix 8HP with 3 input, send\return and cv control over the cutoff frequency."

Vintage Moog Modular System 1960’s-1970’s

via this auction

"Interested in a one of a kind Super Rare Unique Moog Modular 18 Oscillators Mean Machine ?

If you want a Moog modular this is the one.

All the most important modules are here and more. 2 complete sets of filters, 2 filterbanks and
(901c & 1630 very hard to find) among others. From late 60s to early 70s.

It’s almost like having 2 moog systems in one. ( IIIc and system 55 )+ compliment B.

All wood except the complement B is in tolex.

There’s a vintage deluxe memory-man delay on the top tier and sounds amazing. The two bottom cabinets are original the other 3 custom I Think. If you remake new cabinets this unique modular will look amazing.

I also have the joystick 🕹 and moog drum snare trigger.

It’s commes with 4 power supply the main big one original and the other 3 custom.

I didn’t have time to build the power supply for the phase shifter 1630 because the module needs -15v/+15v. Every thing is working but these old synths after shipping needs some tune up or calibration."

Moog's Sub 37: The GREATEST MONOSYNTH.......ever?

video upload by Noir Et Blanc Vie

"Obviously I've had years and years of experience using the Moog Sub 37, it truly changed everything for me as far as live performance goes. I was so thankful when it was released, and now all these years later, yes, I personally think it's the best Analog synthesizer of all time. Sure I haven't used them all, but no one if you disagree, duh, it's expected hahaha. That said, The Sub 37 is great for many many reasons, and even though it's been out for 8 years it will is a modern classic...IMHO. So maybe this video was simply made to say I LOVE YOU SUB 37."
