Michigan Synth Works MSW 810 Analog Synthesizer

video upload by Michael Dykehouse

"The MSW-810 is a faithful recreation of the CMU-810 Monosynth which was designed as a synth expander for the 1983 CMU-800 computer music production system. At its core however, is the tone generator of the MC-202. In this clip the MSW 810 is producing all the sounds you hear including the drums. Available currently as a kit and will be available fully assembled in the fall of 2022."

Ensoniq SQ1 Ambient Demo

video upload by MIDERA

"Eventide Blackhole VST used on all parts.

I purchased this dilapidated Ensoniq SQ1 with a bunch of other gear recently. I thought I would just try to sell it for $50 or something. I wasn't sure if I should fix it up or just let it go as is to someone else. Eight keys are busted. Five keys wouldn't make a sound. Sticker residue stuck everywhere. Low battery warning.

In a matter of 30 minutes, I had fixed all the no-sounding keys, purchased the 8 needed keys, replaced the battery (with a socketed one), and got rid of the sticker residue. All I have left is to put those 8 keys in and it will be in decent shape.

It's nice bringing things back to life. I know it's just stuff, but I mean, letting it fall further into decay just adds more junk to this planet. Maybe by fixing this up, it'll go to someone who really loves it. I think it sounds pretty great actually. A bit bummed by the low voice count, that surprised me how quickly voice stealing occurs. I think because each voice can be made up of 3 sounds, and if you use all 3 sounds, you suddenly have very few voices (I think it has 21 voices total?). So you could be left with 7 actual voices if you use all 3 parts! Still, it's actually pretty decent and not too difficult to edit." Find my other projects on my website:

SUPERBOOTH 2022 - Pink PULSAR23 by SOMA Labs // 2 jams

video upload by Dave Mech

"Ever since it was released I have gravitated towards it and always wanted to try it out. But time passed by and it never happened until now. After about 10 minutes figuring where things were located and how to delete the sequence that was playing I started out and came into a trance. Very intense and beautiful experience. So this is definitely going on the want list.

I only noticed the master drive after I was already deep into the jam. So yeah, it's very crunchy. But I kinda like it :).

Two jams:
Jam 1 0:10
Jam 2 1:48"

video upload by sonicstate

"Sound Freak are working with EMS to produce Buchla format modules bringing the best bits of the VCS3 to the modular world.

We got a look at the triple VCO from the VCS3, with sunc and FM, and the double VCS3 filter in a single module, with switchable slope between 18 and 24 dB, and control of slew for vintage or more snappy response. Finally we saw the trapezoid envelope generator, again from the VCS3, but with full CV control.

Available summer 22.

Sequential PRO 3 - Dreamy Sequence & Morph Function (AMBIENT)

video upload by Alba Ecstasy

Prophet REV2 #ambient patches 👉
Toraiz AS-1 patches 👉

"I'm just in love with Sequential PRO 3's morph function!
The smooth and spectacular transition from a sound (patch) to another, is improving a lot the expressiveness of sequencer's melody.

The sequencer itself is top notch: 16 parameters that can be step sequenced, resulting in a #sequence that is similar to a modular system.

The patches you hear are from the upcoming set of ambient patches for #SequentialPRO3.

A little bit of EQ on the low end (the filter is not closing enough, even with some DC setting), but all the effects are internal.

❤️, ae"

Super Disting EX in Dual Mode is Incredibly Powerful

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) demonstrates using the Expert Sleepers Disting EX in dual mode. The Disting EX offers a dual mode which turns the module into 2 Distings which can be controlled separately. Using the module in dual mode allows you to build complex and powerful combinations to get just about any eurorack job done.

Learn more about the Super Disting EX here:

The disting EX is a multifunction Eurorack module, building on the rich legacy of the previous disting incarnations, which can operate as:
-two souped-up disting mk4s, or as
-a single powerful module in its own right.

Fully DC-coupled, all inputs and outputs can be CVs or audio, depending on the selected function. The functions on offer include audio processing (filters, delays etc.), CV processing and generation (quantizers, pattern generators etc.), oscillators (VCOs, LFOs etc.), and sample playback.

Brand new features for the disting EX include an eight voice polyphonic sample (WAV) player, a powerful stereo tape delay (based on our own Augustus Loop), and a dedicated WAV recorder mode.

When acting as two disting mk4s, the disting EX offers these advantages:
-Higher sample rate (96kHz)
-Much more RAM (so all delays, reverbs etc. can be much longer)
-Lower latency when triggering samples (now 700µs)
And of course, an OLED display.

Dreadbox Typhon - Custom Patches and FX Input Routing

video upload by Hollo Digi Design

"A few custom patches on the Dreadbox Typhon, as well as routing a simple vocal loop through a couple of the effects on the machine (FX from 5:24 if that's all you're interested in).

No external effects were used (although some sounds do have some slight compression via the very transparent FMR RNC 1773).
Sounds were recorded in one sitting direct into a Zoom H6.
No post processing or mastering was used (apologies on level changes etc.).

Some things I’ve learned about the Dreadbox Typhon:
Size does not matter... This thing can sound absolutely massive! Also incredibly, the lack of knobs isn't as much of an issue as I thought it might be. And finally, envelope time should be on every synth as a performance control - such a cool addition!"
