Computone Wind Synthesizer-Driver (Lyricon)

via this auction

"Powers up but needs some TLC and essential parts like the wind controller and power cable. See photo for plug type.

Tested with a borrowed power cable and a Moog prodigy. Some voltages affected the oscillator pitch. I can't comment on the full functionality as there's no wind controller to complete the unit.

Outer case has a crack in one corner.

Item comes as seen. See photos.

No power cable or wind controller is included. Just the synthesizer driver portion as pictured."

BÖHM SOLIST-S (Böhmat) Analog Groovebox 1974 | Demonstration

video upload by AnalogAudio1

"The Boehm (Dr. Böhm) Böhmat Solist-S Compact is an analog rhythm box / accompaniment from 1974 made in (western) Germany. Great analog sound! Completely analog sound generation, not programmable. But the rhythms and different arpeggios are combinable!

I played it partly with delay (right channel only) and reverb effects (Korg SDD-3000 and Lexicon MPX-500)."

This appears to be the first 1974 model featured on the site. You can find models from 1972 and 1973 in previous posts here.

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"Thanks for watching!
Got an opportunity to play on this extremely rare synthesizer: Schmidt Eight Voice Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer. It is built with super precision, and it is extremely limited, with a very hefty price tag. My time with this synth was very limited so I did what I could in the time that I had. Made some very lush-sounding chords along with an improvised structure. Let me know what you think of its sound in the comments. Cheers!

Modular Synthesizer jamming with Tiptop Audio

video upload by OVERLAP

"in this video I'm particularly focused on showing what kind of organic sound you can get from one sampler player modular, the fun part started when I include the Buchla Dual Oscillator (out) patch into Fold Processor wave Multiplier (in) an then patch to Forbidden Planet Analog Filter to VCA ( Voltage Controlled Amplifier), and of course the Z4000 Voltage Controlled Envelope Generator help a lot to shape the sound of the Buchla, adding in top the Z-DSP VC – Digital Signal Processor for feedback delay."

Patch of The Week: 'On the Run' Ep2 Percussion - Floyd's Classic Synthi track recreated in Eurorack

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Second of 2 videos showing how to recreate the classic Pink Floyd track from 'Dark Side of The Moon', originally recorded on an EMS Synthi AKS. This episode covers the percussion element of the sound, which in the original album recording was simultaneously created and performed along with the melody on the Synthi AKS. Effectively, the Synthi was used to create 2 voices from one monophonic synth by some clever use of the instrument's built-in ring modulator.
Episode 1 covered the melodic sequence, how to programme it, and how to get a similar sound. Check it out here: [posted here]
In this version I'm using the RING SM, as it's ring mod is directly based on the one in the EMS Synthi and VCS3, so it's behaviour is the same. This trick will not work on all ring mods, as they vary in design and the way in which they achieve a ring modulation effect. However, the Ring's SM's is a true, all-analogue ring modulator.
I start using white noise from the GLIDE + NOISE module, and then experiment using the ENTROPIC DOOM and LUNAR MODULE as the noise source. CV sequencing is supplied by the Arturia Keystep sequencer.

Patch notes also below.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for more 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides detailing a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, and each containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Video by DreamsOfWires

00:00 Intro
00:31 Patching the modules
00:56 Explaining the patch
04:16 Patch Sheet

Patch Notes:
Green dots show approximate pot and switch positions. Those with two dots show the range I adjust them during the video. Pots and switches that do not have green dots are not used in this patch, and should be left at their zero or off positions.
SONIC XV: This gets us fairly close to the Synthi's sound, as that instrument also used a diode ladder VCF. I use both 24dB, as the original Synthi filter was 24dB, but also the 6dB output, because in 24dB it is easier to send the filter into self-oscillation when using high resonance, and this sound really benefits from a lot of resonance. The 6dB can achieve a more noticeable degree of resonance before self-oscillation occurs. It is subjective, and both have their character and strengths, so experiment!
RING SM: Firstly, depending on what you are using as a noise source you may need to keep levels low, both on the RING SM and the VCA. Here I'm using white noise from the GLIDE + NOISE module, which has a low volume level, but when using filtered noise from the Entropic Doom (for example) the output will be quite high. Therefore, regardless of your noise source, start low, and gradually raise the levels to a useful volume.
DISCRETE CASCADED VCA: Either this or the MUTING MIXER & VCA can be used, as I did in the previous video. All that's important here is having at least two channels - one for filter output and one for ring mod output, so that the mix/volume balance between the two sounds can be adjusted, and then just to be careful of high audio levels.
Modules used from top-left to bottom-right: Glide + Noise, Dual LFO + VCA, Vintage Transistor Core VCO, Ring SM, Sonic XV Diode Ladder Wave Filter, Discrete Cascaded VCA."

Keytek CTS2000 Cross Table Sampled Synthesizer SN 0279

via this auction

You can find a couple of videos featuring the CTS2000 in previous posts here.

"THE GIBSON Synthesizer. The only.

Its name: The Keytek CTS 2000
Analog True vintage : CURTIS CHIPS // CEM 5530 / 8 CEM 3389
Released in 1987.

RARE COLLECTOR Early Model number 279

This will be supplied with :

1 COMPLETE IN ENGLISH !! Instruction Manual ! 64 pages
1 EXTERNAL ORIGINAL MEMORY CARD of this KEYTEK CTS 2000 model to store even more of your sounds.

Fender has also released one on its side: The Chroma Polaris.

Story : Gibson had bought the Italian brand SIEL (Societa Industrie Elettroniche)
and worked in collaboration with its engineers who had already released
a lot of synthesizers including ( Cruise, Orchestra, Orchestra 2, Dk-70,
Ex-80, Dk-80 , Expander , Opera 6 , Dk-600 , Dk-700 , Kiwi ) and worked
themselves with suzuki and knew how to draw inspiration from analogs
from Korg .Moreover it would have been produced in Japan.

Gibson's synth, the Keytek CTS 2000 is a 330 plus wavetable based
synthesizer. But it is above all one of the last analog synths of this era. For
this it was equipped with Curtis chips, the same used in the little brother
of the Waldorf Wave, the Microwave .... as well as the Prophet 2000 which
is a Sequencial Audio / Dave Smith sampler ...

It has 6 voices with 2 oscillators per voice.
7 levels of envelope settings...
A Total MIDI Implementation....
An internal memory to save 48 sounds.
Finally its specialty of Cross Table Sample allows to mix for a sound of the
wavetables between them to obtain a combination of 330 X 329 so 9000 !

That is more than 9000 waveforms more than the sinusoid, the triangle,
the square, the sawtooth ! And this for a single voice ....
Each oscillator can be tuned differently for Fat sound .
An Lfo is also present to modulate these.
ADSR on 7 levels
All this in many combinations

One cannot simply overcome its possibilities.

It produces a unique sound. With it your instrumentations won't sound too much today.
He will add a personal color. It can produce percussive sounds, particular pads...

Another thing that differentiates the KEYTEK CTS 2000 is that very few copies
were produced in the world.
There are 2 other Keytek models but they are only weakly trimmed compared
to this one.

The model on sale was released in the very First GIBSON-SIEL workshops.

Number 279."

free PO-33 kit: 80s drums (works for PO 133 as well)

video upload by CNTR RNDM

"I'm an 80s kid…and, dude, in my opinion, - even if I sound like an old fart now - there was no better time to be a kid than the 80s (and the 90s, maybe). I mean, dude, I spent my Saturdays lying on the floor of our living room making mixtapes. My parents had this huuuuuuge record collection and I would spend hours on end going through these records…Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths, Prince, all that good stuff, you know. I mean, how cool is that? And I remember being all hyped up because my parents let me watch Wrestlemania 5…dude, Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage…can it get any better? And I sat there wearing both my Hulkamania shirt and my WW(F|E) Championship belt waving this silly foam finger in my dad's face like there was no tomorrow. Those were the days, my friend! Nintendo released the NES, Michael Jackson's Thriller came out, endless summer nights, countless barbecues…dude, seriously, how awesome were the 80s?

To honour this amazing decade, I made this PO-33 80s drum kit consisting of 15 one shot drum hits and 3 drum loops. I really just sampled a bunch of my old drum machines and layered the samples in Ableton to…well just because😂

You can download the FREE backup file here:

PO-33 KO! How to Data Transfer!

video upload by Ollie Loops

"In this chapter of our series on the Teenage Engineering PO-33 KO!, we take a look at one of the more interesting features of the KO, the ability to data transfer to and from the unit. The KO has a feature where connecting a stereo 1/8" to 1/8" cable between the unit and an audio recorder allows you to download all of the samples and patterns in the unit. This allows you to swap samples and patterns without loosing your work. You then have a back up of your work. You can also transfer files directly between two KOs. Note: this also applies to the other Pocket Operators in the Metal Series, the PO-32 and PO-35.

Here is a direct link to the WAV file:

It is super important to get the right audio format when you record the data transfer. It must be a stereo 16 bit 44100 hz file format or better. The recording will likely fail if you deviant from this format."
