Prophet 10 Rev4 Stacks and Splits Demo (No Talking)

video upload by Justin Carey

"Since updating the firmware to enable multi timbral layering on the P10 I have enjoyed the new sonic potential. This video features some of my latest sounds utilizing this update."

Moody Piano | Prophet 12 improvisation

video upload by MIDERA

"While struggling to enjoy the Prophet 12... I was just fumbling around making sounds, mostly in frustration. Listed my synth in the local group (at a loss). But then I heard this sound... it reminded me of a piano, and for the next two hours, I worked on creating this patch. And so here it is.

Hybrid Patch Highlights - Critter & Guitari Organelle

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Sometimes an Organelle patch doesn't quite fit into one category - is it a sampler or synth? Is it a polyphonic synth or drum machine? Well, sometimes they're both. This video of these hybrid patches highlights one of the best things about the Organelle - that it can provide many musical functions simultaneously and give users control over them!"

CBM 8032 AV - Telex - Budapest 26.2.2022

CBM 8032 AV - Telex - Budapest 26.2.2022 from Robert Henke on Vimeo.

"The CBM 8032 AV performance is running on five iconic Commodore CBM 8032 computers from 1980, connected together to form an audiovisual instrument, played by the artist on stage.

These computers from the beginning of the personal computer age can only produce simple green low resolution graphics and they need custom hardware to create sound. Low level programming in assembler is necessary to achieve the real time audio and video signals, but these limitations also inspire a very specific and unique aesthetic, which defines the identity of this project.

Three computers create sound, the signals are calculated directly by the CPU (6502, 8bit, 1Mhz) and sent to a 8bit DA converter. Sound is further processed using a Publison DHM 89 pitch shifter from 1978 and a AMS RMX 16 reverb unit. Video is created by a forth computer, also calculated directly by the CPU, written to 2kByte screen memory. A fifth computer controls the other machines via a custom sequencer. The entire project runs on our own software.

This recording is an excerpt from a concert in Budapest, February 26th 2022.

Jessica Kert - live @SUPERBOOTH21

"Live Modular artist Jessica Kert discovered the Buchla200e system for herself during the lockdown. At her day job at SchneidersLaden, the noble device was always available after work and so a deeper understanding of the instrument developed over many hours of experimentation.

After some time, the point was reached to bring what she had learned to the stage - we are very happy that it was the Seaside-Stage at SUPERBOOTH21."

Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"This unit was meticulously serviced over many hours and is now in perfect working order, unlike most. It is justifiably priced higher than lesser examples on the market.

We purchased a third party's custom power supply for this unit since it came to us without a power supply. Our tech had to spend a while modifying it as he had some safety concerns with it the way it was assembled. After putting that extra time into it (and costing us a bit more), it's now got his stamp of approval. This Liberation's a pleasure to play and sounds exactly as it should, no excuses."

Elka Synthex with MIDI SN 1045

via this auction

"Up for grabs the legendary Elka Synthex! Are words even necessary? Jean Michel Jarre’s laser harp synth.

36 knobs, 84 buttons, 6 levers and 1 joystick of pure analog goodness! One of THE greatest polys ever!

This synth is in excellent condition (according Reverb terminology), the panel is flawless and has no dents or scratches - you can tell this has been a well-looked after instrument that lived its life in a smoke-free home studio. The sides have very minor signs of use typical for the age but nothing crazy as you can see from the pictures. It has MIDI, which can also be seen from the pics.

This baby weighs an impressive 30kg so that means shipping will be a bit more expensive"

"Sonic landscapes with the Soma Pulsar 23, arguably the most amazing if not the best drum machine ever made. The combination of sound quality, easy of use, open design, interconnectivity and interactivity makes the Soma a fantastic piece of musical gear, and which is more important, a real instrument to play with."

Verbos Electronics

video upload by Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"It's arguably the hottest day of the year in the UK. I'm in the studio, a little exhausted from deadlines this week, so decided I deserved some playtime, so instead of lounging in the sunshine (which can be very dangerous), I set up this little patch on my small Verbos Electronics modular system. It's only a sketch that might appear within something else one day, but thought it worthy of sharing, if only to give my day meaning, after all 😀"

"The PS-400 is a small keyboard with 44 mid-sized keys, 8 note polyphony, 10 voices with sustain, 10 rhythms with variation, duet function, transposer and a chord sequencer. It was released in 1982. It sounds exactly the same as the PC-100 and MP-1 and was also released in a smaller and functions reduced version as the PS-300.
