Elby Designs - EuroSerge System

video upload by NOISEBUG

"This Elby Designs EuroSerge System is a small, compact Serge system in the eurorack format, but uses 4mm banana plugs! Based on the old paperface circuits, this modern take on the era keeps the sound quality in a much friendlier format.

Sequential Prophet 12 Majestic Tones (Flashing Light Warning ⚠️)

video upload by Mamotreco

"Some digital/analog synth hybrid goodness from the magnificent Sequential Prophet 12. All sounds come from this beast of a synthesizer which sports flexible digital oscillators and analog filters within a focused tabletop form factor.

#prophet12 #synth #sounddemo

Be aware, the mood light top left was on the fritz and the frame rate of the video makes it flash a bit. However, this synth designed by Dave Smith still sounds top notch.

EthanJamesMusic Sequential Prophet 6 Tutorial Lessons

"This is a tutorial series for anyone who wants to learn how to do their own sound design using the Sequential Circuits (former Dave Smith Instruments) Prophet 6 synthesizer. The goal is to break this subject down into understandable and digestible bits of information that you can apply to your own electronic music. I am primarily a media or film composer, so we will learn ambient, techno, and EDM style sound design using the synth."

001:model D - a MIDI controller for Minimoog Model D VSTs Seeking Funding on Kickstarter

via Kickstarter

001:model D by ΔMIDI is a dedicated, physical MIDI controller for the world’s most popular synthesizer – Moog Minimoog Model D’s VST plugins.

001:model D allows you to take full control over any Minimoog-based VST available on the market. And thanks to being open-source, anyone can freely modify or tweak its behaviour. This makes the 001:model D a truly universal MIDI controller.

Why dedicated controller is better than knobs built into a MIDI keyboard?

Due to the fact that every knob and every switch is an accurate representation of what is happening on the screen, the exact representation of what sound synthesizer you are operating produces. After spending a while with the 001:model D, you won’t just be able to use ordinary knobs, you will discover a different level of control. It’s all because of that 1:1 layout.


21 analogue potentiometers
6 6-stage knobs
15 toggle switches
2 lever switches
3 LED indicators
44 physical controls in total.

Sync button for instant settings transfer.

Map button for changing MIDI mapping on the fly.

Class-compliant MIDI-USB protocol implementation
Open-source hardware†
Eurorack-compatible design‡
Black and white finish, gold lettering with matched knob and USB cable color‡
Hackable, based on Arduino® platform

Made from three layers of fibreglass reinforced laminate with an additional layer of sheet aluminium. All CNC-machined.
Dimensions: 425 mm x 110 mm x 48 mm (16.75″ x 4.3″ x 1.9″)
Weight: 1100 g (2.4 lbs).
†001:model D will become fully open-source after Kickstarter Campaign

‡Eurorack model and colour options availability depends on Stretch Goal completion

But hey, there’s more!

After completing the main goal - collecting funds to start the 001:model D production, we have Stretch Goals – for making a white 001:model D, also with gold plated lettering; and something really special - a Eurorack compatible model.

Tested & compatible with

Arturia Mini V

Ca. 1986 Oberheim Matrix 6

via this auction

"Fresh from a round of TLC from our in house techs, this is killer example of the classic "deep modulation synth." In very good cosmetic condition, with some minor chipping on the underside of a few keys. The Matrix 6 has six voices at two oscillators per voice, and almost endless routing potential. This is one of the best sounding synths Tom Oberheim ever designed. Create super rich pads and searing leads!"

Fender Chroma Polaris II SN 500516

via this auction

"Awesome synth from the 80s. Was made by the guys from arp after they were bought out by fender. Everything works as it should, some pretty radical sounds can be conceived with this machine that’s for sure."

Teisco Synthesizer 110-F

via this auction

You can find demos of the Teisco 110F in previous posts here.

"Ok. You ready for a weird one? This is definitely a quirky little bird of a keyboard.

A lot of things here will be familiar, though: two analog oscillators with very wide frequency ranges that can go from 64ft to 4ft -- and also each be used as LFOs -- with the classic compliment of analog triangle, saw, and square/pulse waves. Two snappy envelopes. A very flexible dedicated LFO with waveshaping. Sample and hold. White and pink noise. Ring mod... I assume you're following along, so far so good.

But then... VCO 1 can FM VCO 2? And then VCO 2 can ring mod VCO 1 at the same time? And then this filter is... a ladder filter? Like a Moog -- but compensated, so it doesn't lose low end when the resonance is turned high and screaming. And then... there is... a filter bank with its own dedicated mixer section. Yes, it works and it is a very bizarre addition that I have pretty much never seen on another monosynth.

Anyway, like I said this is just a very quirky and interesting little thing. I've had a great time squeezing weird late 70s sci-fi vibes out of it, but perhaps it's time for it's next home."

JEC Running Up That Hill - Fairlight Drone EXPANDED

video upload by James Edward Cosby


"Here are the settings required to recreate the #FairlightCMI #Drone used on #KateBush #RunningUpThatHill in #StrangerThings

The original was produced using a hardware CMI but anyone with an iPhone or iPad, can get a good approximation using the Peter Vogel CMI App available on the Apple App Store...

The #CMI App does not have a low-pass filter so subsequently the resultant drone is brighter than the released version therefore a low-pass filter or eq will be required to adjust the tone to match the original. Oh and wear headphones!!!

The Fairlight samples and settings used are as follows... (Only one note is used per voice to match the original hardware and to increase the tuning and pan spread for a very wide stereo mix.)"

Tape Eurorack Modular Jam 📻

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"That’s why I fell in love with my modular system: easiness and complexity. A constant research for this conflicting dualism. With sounds and notes.

In this jam, a simple triangle waves from @mutableinstruments Plaits meets the beautiful @noiseeng Desmodus Versio, who introduces Stages and Tides as modulations. @qubitelectronix Bloom is the guidance.
@arturia_official Tape Mello Fi gives this cassette mood to the entire family.
Hope you enjoy them. 📻

Headphones recommended. 🎧"

SubSequence | Using the Moog Subharmonicon as a sequencer.

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"One of the best features of the Moog Subharmonicon is its sequencer, providing only 2x4 notes, but with four clock dividers supporting polyrhythmic patterns that don't have obvious repeats. I think it's the most important feature that made me get one, but after playing with it for a while I really start to appreciate the sound too. it's a module that delivers instant fast food at first patch, and haute cuisine when you spend some time with it.
In the first part of the video I get lost while setting things up, so this can happen to you too! I'll try to route the sequencer CV to a quantizer (Ornament & Crime) to check if I can 'escape' the 2x4 notes and built in scales (it works!). And finally I'll hook up the MakeNoise 'Shared Museum' and drive it with the Subharmonicon's resources"
