Jupiter-4 Circuit Mod Demo for System-8 & Roland Cloud

video upload by MR TUNA Music

"The new JP-4 plug-out for the System-8 is here and the biggest new feature is 'Circuit Mod'

Vintage synths like the JUPITER-4 had internal trim controls that allowed technicians to tweak various analog components when they drifted out of spec. But sometimes, “out of spec” created a sound that was unique, interesting, or extraordinary. Realized through the latest ACB advancements, the new Circuit Mod function lets you sweep through multiple trims using a single macro control. Along with the Condition parameter, which simulates the effects of aging, you can dial in everything from a factory-primed JUPITER-4 to a road-worn synth that hasn’t seen a tech bench in decades.

The JUPITER-4 Software Synthesizer offers full integration with the SYSTEM-8 keyboard. You can change the JUPITER-4’s plug-in panel to match the SYSTEM-8 for intuitive, one-to-one control. Or use the PLUG-OUT functionality to turn your SYSTEM-8 into a standalone, eight-voice JUPITER-4 that you can play in the studio or on stage."

One of my favorite songs from the german group Rammstein - Ich Will I used the E-MU Emax SE Sampling Synthesizer from the year 1986 for all sounds and parts including the guitar strumming.

The E-MU Emax was one of the most used sampling synthesizers of the late 80s. Here is the full Emax playlist with a lot sampling sound demos, sampling tutorials and one synth demo tracks. Enjoy!

Gotharman's SpazeDrum: Cymbals and Hihats

video upload by gotharman

"Showing off a tiny bit of the possibilities for making cymbals and hihats on SpazeDrum. First analog sounds, then digital. An LFO is modulating the VCA envelope decay time, to simulate cymbals and hihats at the same time. The 'reverb' is generated by long VCA envelope release times."

1977 ARP Avatar

via this auction

"This is a really cool and very rare synth. It's an ARP Avatar, which has been converted from its original guitar-synth form to basically be an Odyssey without keys (but with the addition of a very cool fuzz mode!). It sounds absolutely amazing, and is a very unusual instrument. It's controlled via CV. I'll throw in an Arturia Beatstep and some cables to get you started."

Casio VZ-10M Professional Digital Synthesizer SN 000797

via this auction

"A very powerful synthesizer module, classy and thoroughly professional. This is the rack version of the VZ-1 iPD synthesizer. Casio perfected the PD synthesis found in the CZ series, and the result offers impressive sounds. he character is very aggressive, digital, industrial, and powerful - similar to Yamaha's FM synthesis, but with a different, more aggressive character. Starting from a simple, pure sine wave (or different waveform), you can build very complex sounds. The on-board waveforms are among the purest to be heard on a synth.

This line of synthesizers wasn't ever very popular (and in fact after that Casio pulled back from the professional market, going back to the home market). Which is a pity, because certainly the professional qualities of an instrument like this shouldn't be forgotten. Bottom line: because of the powerful editing tools, this is a synth for 'tweakers' and programmers."

Circuit Bent Yamaha PSR - 16 SMMP 🤖🤖🤖

video upload by SMMP

"A nice FM Digital synthesiser to which I added an analog VCF which really enhances it to be used for pads, nice leads and even some cool basses.

There is also an LFO which controls the VCF allowing rhythmic patterns and pulsating pads!

It's great polyphony and the possibility of modify in real time some FM parameters make it a very versatile instrument, specially when paired with fx such as delay and reverb! --------

I can build instruments on request, so, if interested please enquire! You can drop me a message or send an email etc.

Polyend/Dreadbox Medusa and Transverse Flute Trio - Perfomance and short review

video upload by The machine in the botanical garden

"Composition for Polyend/Dreadbox Medusa synthesizer and transverse flute trio. Short review of the Medusa machine + description of the composition
I have written the score with the Staffpad score player and editor. The library used for the transverse flute sounds is Berlin woodwinds from Orchestral tools (Staffpad version).

The composition is titled: Painting VIII"

V.A.I. 55 Elka Wilgamat / Multivox MX-3000

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Another spin with these twooddbalss: The Elka Wilgamat and Multivox MX-3000.
The Elka Wilgamat is probably a bit familiar to our viewers by now - an Italian auto-accompaniment machine with three sections:

1. Analog drum machine section
2. Bass section with 2 sounds and variations
3. Chord section with 3 sounds

Harmonically controlled by a two-octave keyboard with a fill-in bar on top, it has a great warm sound that's unmistakably mid-1970s to our ears, the drum machine alone sounds great.

The Multivox MX-3000 is a pretty rare Japanese string machine and monophonic synth combo.
A bit similar to the Farfisa Soundmaker or maybe Solina String Synthesizer (the BIG one - not the regular String Ensemble) or the Crumar Composer but with a more complex polyphonic - or rather Divide Down - section.
Lots bells and whistles here.

It basically has three separate sections:

1. A bass synth section with multiple preset sounds and attack, decay and tone controls.

2. A polyphonic section with preset sounds that are modifiable in quite a few ways with a very nice and aggressive filter section, attack/decay, two different choruses, two glide modes and more.

3. Single Oscillator monophonic section. No presets but a few different wave forms, a very nice filter, portamento and the usual mono stuff for great leads, basses and even some space effects.

The Polyphonic filter and choruses are very cool on these, maybe that's what we got it for initially but it's turning in to our desert island machine, there's really a lot going on here, it's a versatile instrument with quite a unique and somewhat rustic sound.

They're famously hard to service due to lack of a good set of schematics.
The build-quality is strangely bad for late 1970s Japanese keyboards so they somehow always break down.
