Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 song

video upload by synthasaurus

"This is a song I did on a reel to reel tape deck back in 1999. I didn't develop it as much as I had wanted because I was in the middle of a move.

It's a rev 3 Prophet 5. A Moog Source was recently added in a couple of small appearances just because I no longer have the Prophet 5, and I wanted to fix a couple of flubs.

I'm dedicating this song to Dave Smith, RIP. A true pioneer in the synth world. Thanks Dave"

"another sound Jam on the Portabella today. This time no sequencer used. The beast plays itself, i'm just tweaking some knobs ."

Moog Mavis vs. Mother 32

video upload by John Schussler

"Do you need both a Mother 32 and a Mavis? How do they complement or contrast one another? Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm not going to go over all the features and specs, I'm just interested in how they sound. How much overlap is there?

Note that the LFO on Mother doesn't go nearly as far into audio rate as the Mavis does, and doesn't track as well, so I gave up on doing a "two oscillator mode" comparison. Didn't seem fair.

Sequence is just me banging keys on an Arturia Keystep 37.

00:00 Intro
00:20 Saw wave, VCA
02:26 Square wave
05:30 Envelope to VCF
09:28 Faster sequence
17:14 2nd VCO, folding"

Dancer 🕺 (NDLR // Nymphes + Lofi + Bigsky // DB01 // TR6S // 0Coast + Timeline + Particle // SE02)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"Here is my latest track featuring the inspiring NDLR 4-track sequencer, trying to do something more uptempo this time (the NDLR really excels at doing ambient tracks, but can it be used for some more 'techno' tracks? 🤔 Hope we'll get an answer thanks to your comments 😉)

I used 4 analog tracks for this jam (Nymphes, DB01, 0Coast and SE02), sequenced by the Conductive Labs NDLR sequencer. The drums were sequenced and played by the Roland TR6S 'rhythm performer' (where I used mainly the Analog Circuit Behavior and FM engines). Recorded in one take.

* Hardware used *
- PADS: Dreadbox Nymphes + Zvex Instant LoFi Junky + Strymon Bigsky + Pill Pedal (triggered by the TR-6S)
- BASS: Erica Synths DB-01 Bassline
- MOTIF-1: Make Noise 0-Coast + Strymon Timeline (Delay) + Red Panda Particle 2 (Granular Delay)
- MOTIF-2: Roland SE-02
- DRUMS: Roland TR-6S
- Sequencer: Conductive Labs - NDLR (sequencing all 4 synths)"

SPECTRAL REVERB | Qu-Bit Electronix - Aurora

video upload by DANIELE

"Aurora is an amazing spectral reverb by Qu-Bit Electronix!

From the manual: WTF Is FFT? The most common way to create a phase vocoder for audio applications is the Fast Fourier Transform(FFT). This algorithm gets its name from the French mathematician Joseph Fourier (1768-1830), who theorized that any complex sound could be recreated using a sum of individual sine waves. The FFT algorithm separates the time and pitch domain aspects of an input signal. Once in this form, we can change the pitch data without affecting time, and vice versa."

VERMONA Digital Rhythm Machine SN 4043

via this auction

"Brilliant original retro drum machine with many combinations of patterns. Sound like kits from the Linn, DMX era. Has separate volume for each sound so you get a good balance on drum tracks."

You can find demos of one in previous posts here.

ULTRA-RARE 1979 MusicAid / Simmons SDS-IV Drum Synthesizer SN 4043

via this auction

"This is the incredibly rare MusicAid / Simmons SDS-IV, the 1979 predecessor to the famous Simmons SDS-V. In 1978 Dave Simmons, along with MusicAid, released their first product, the SDS-III, which was a 4-channel drum synth that was inspired by the 1976 Pollard Syndrum and Japan's 1978 answer to the Syndrum, the Ult-Sound DS-4. These were the first dedicated drum synths in history. In early 1979, MusicAid / Simmons released the 2-channel version as the SDS-IV. There are only an estimated 500 of these that were made by Dave Simmons by hand!

It functions fine, but with some slight differences between channel 1 and channel 2, so you might want to go through it to make it consistent between the channels. This unit runs on UK power (230V), so if you're in a different country you will need to use a transformer."

video upload by Mindburner

"In this video I get my hands on a nice KORG KR55 drum machine
I love the sound of this machine. The kick and snare especially.

I install a clock sync socket and get the machine running with the MINDBURNER MIDI to DINSYNC unit.

I also swap the buzzy 110v Japanese transformer for a new 240v UK model

Bastl Pizza - Eurorack FM voice - A Recipe for Success

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"It's small, affordable, monophonic and super fun. No idea why it's called 'Pizza', but it starts with a sinewave and then shapes, folds and modulates it with the help of an octave oscillator that's always related to the main voice. This means it can stay musical while pushing it hard. It can sound beautiful, organic, mean and insane. Highly recommended as your first VCO (or second)."
