Yamaha AN1X as Modular Synthesizer Demo Nr 2 HQ Sound no talking

video upload by js-sound

"I love it and so I make presets for it and a bunch of YouTube demos! AN1X is cool and it's not so "modern" as Montage, XF, XS (all this are Lighthouse without lights from a modern Yamaha manufacturer). I ask you not to buy anything from current Yamaha production! And only then will these devils begin to move in the right direction. They have to lose their income before they stop making decisions with their asses."

New TAP TEMPO VC-LFO 16-Wave Eurorack Module by AJH Synth

NEW! TAP TEMPO VC-LFO 16-wave voltage-controlled modulation Eurorack module with VCA, Int/Ext clock
video upload by AJH Synth Official

"The TAP TEMPO VC-LFO is a skiff-friendly, 42hp Eurorack low frequency oscillator. It's a modulation powerhouse, with 16 waveforms, 15 with 'wave form twist' PWM-like control, random sample & hold type waves, and CV control over all functions.It can serve as a clock source, or can be clocked by external pulse/gate signals, with a clock multiply/divide function, along with a built-in VCA controlling both bipolar (LFO type) and unipolar (envelope-type) outputs. It's great for everything from simple expression-controlled pitch vibrato, to clocking or being clocked by sequencers for time-synced modulation, and generative patches, where randomness and/or time control is needed to be shared between different modules.

This video is a brief introduction to the module, but following 1 hour after this upload will be a full USER GUIDE VIDEO detailing all functions, along with some example patches.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for more module USER GUIDE videos, and '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.

Every modular system needs modulation sources to add variety and interest to static sounds. The more powerful and versatile the modulator, then the more interesting these sounds can become. We compiled a wish list of useful features, starting with obvious ones such as CV control of Frequency, Tap Tempo, Unipolar and Bipolar outputs and a wide range of waveforms, and then we just kept adding more features such as waveform twist, rate multiplication, Sync In/Out and an inbuilt dual VCA for modulation level control. Then we made sure that we had voltage control (and therefore automation) available for every single feature. This takes it way beyond the realms of regular LFO's and make the Tap Tempo VC-LFO a modulation powerhouse.

Ergonomics are important too, it can really spoil the workflow if we have to stop and refer to the user manual to find out what some obscure control or jack socket does - so it follows our usual format of having a very clear, intuitive and uncluttered front panel. All of the jack sockets are in two rows at the bottom, with the inputs on the left and outputs on the right hand side.

The Tap Tempo VC-LFO is available with either a Black or Silver front panel.

PATCH MAVIS BETTER // patches to advance your semi modular synths (with the Moog Mavis)

video upload by DivKidVideo

"Want to add CV control to a wavefolder? Modulate the symmetry or a folder? Explore an underused harmonic treat with PWM? Or even turn your envelopes into oscillating wave shapers? Well, strap in!

In this video we’ll explore patches to expand your semi modular synthesisers. Looking at more advanced patching to further your synthesis and sound design. We’ll be exploring these patches with the Moog Mavis but these patches can be applied to other semi modular gear, fully modular systems or with software. So try out these patches with your own equipment and feel free to let me know how you get on in the comments.

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"The Yamaha CS-50 is the 4-voice cousin of the 8-voice Yamaha CS-60 and Yamaha CS-80 synthesizers. Even with half the voices, the Yamaha CS-50 sounds incredible and offers that recognizable CS sound for a fraction of the price!

Features 13 presets, a single oscillator (square, PW/PWM and sawtooth waveforms), high-pass and lowpass filters (each with resonance, for BP shaping), sine wave, VCA and envelopes, ring modulation, white noise generator, LFO with multiple waveshapes, sustain & portamento and a 49-key keyboard with aftertouch.

This synthesizer is 100% original and works as expected, a must have for any serious collector/producer."

"The Tonestar 8106 is a compact Eurorack synth voice based on a combination of the Juno 106 circuits and the ARP 2600. The voice sounds fantastic and has a single VCO, LFO, filter, VCA, and two envelopes. There is a nice feedback control that allows the output to be routed back through itself for some fun unpredictable results. The sections of this synth voice are normaled together but can be interrupted and used independently. This module is in great working condition but has some rack rash. This is the grey version."

Roland System 100M Baby Modular Synthesizer - 190 2x 110 & 140

via this auction

"You're looking an my wonderful Roland 100M baby modular system.

It comprises of a 190 3 slot frame, two 110 VCO/VCF/VCA modules and a 140 dual envelope and lfo module.

It's just been serviced and is in tip top condition. There is a slight bow in the top pannel where the previous owned had stacked another unit on top of it for many years, otherwise it's spot on.

These systems are super rare and very sought after these days. I love it, but it doesn't get anywhere near enough use to justify keeping it. Someone else should be making amazing music with it!"

EXPERT SLEEPERS | Lorelei - VCO Voltage Controlled Oscillator

video upload by DANIELE

"Lorelei is a versatile oscillator by Expert Sleepers with quadrature sine outputs, waveshaping and sync/cross-modulation options.

From the manual:

Cross-modulation/sync: in a common-or-garden ramp-based analogue VCO, oscillator sync works by resetting the ramp integrator based on the frequency of the syncing signal. Lorelei works quite diferently, though similar efects can be obtained. In Lorelei, the sync input essentially prevents the oscillator from oscillating when the input is above a certain voltage (around 3.3V), but this is not an on-of thing – the efect gradually applies as the voltage increases. The upshot of this is that smooth waveforms (e.g. sine or triangle) for the syncing input produce a diferent efect to, say, square or pulse waveforms. Also, when using a pulse wave as the sync input, the pulsewidth of the signal also afects the result quite drastically."
