Future Retro Revolution Analog Synthesizer Sequencer

via this auction

Roland System 100 Model 104 Sequencer Module w/ Original Manual

via this auction

Sequential Max

via this auction

"A polyphonic analog synth created by Sequential Circuits, and introduced in 1984. This was introduced alongside the Six Trak, and it was Sequential's lowest-cost polyphonic synth at the time. It was essentially a stripped-down version of the Six Trak, having the same voice architecture and sequencer specifications, and using many of the same components and subassemblies.

It is in great working condition and has been tested and is working great. It is missing 1 button which you can see in the photos. Included is the keyboard and power supply."

Ensoniq EPS Performance Sampler w/ Disk Library

via this auction

"Tested and works great. Comes with the keyboard and floppy disk sound library.

The 'Ensoniq Performance Sampler' is a 13 bit sampler with multple options for samplerate (6.25 to 52 KHz). Using lower sample rates allows more polyphony and sample time. (12 voices at 52 kHz, 16 voices at 39 kHz, 20 voices at 31.2 kHz) It's memory is, like other samplers of this time very small at 480 Kb, offering 5 to 41 total sample time for the user, but can be upgraded with 2 expanders to 896 Kb or 2.1 Mb (4 expanders or 4 +SCSI expanders) which results in 167 seconds sample time available.

It has an 8-16 track sequencer (again, depends on memory use) with quantizing option, and seperate instrument, volume and MIDI channel. It has a 80K note limit.

The filters are digital dynamc filters per wavesample, multi-moded digital low pass, or variable width band pass with multiple slope options available. These are quite analogue sounding (regarding it's age). The EPS has 6-stage envelope generators that can be stored with presets controlling the VCAs.

The EPS is 8 part semi-multitimbral, because switching to 8 instruments loaded or stacked in one sample patch is easy. The "patch select" buttons are positioned near the modulaton wheel."

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.

This third video shows the filters, their sounds, and some options. Please leave a comment with any questions or requests and a like if this was helpful."

CubuSynth Modular - Engine & ADSR Eurorack Modules

video upload by CubuSynth Modular

"The CubuSynth Engine is a Dual analog VCO with wave shaping functions, internal modulations and a chaos generator. It is based around the 3340 chip and features 4 Waveforms per VCO and 4 Modulated Outputs, all simultaneously."

CubuSynth Engine Prototype noodling

"Been busy over the last months to develop a dual analog complex VCO for Eurorack.
This is a Prototype quite close to the finished module."

Pics & module details via

"CubuSynth Engine

Complex analog dual VCO
Designed to bring a complex VCO, with a huge amount of possibilities and internal modulations to the DIY world, this module stands out for its visual appearence as well as its audible quality and possibilities

How it works
The CubuSynth Engine can work as 2 independent VCOs, or as a complex FM oscillator with its several modulated outputs.

With its inernal 'Chaos Engine' it creates semi-random voltages, generated by the 2 oscillator cores. This signal is then normalized to the CV inputs for Pulse width modulation and exponential FM.

Each of the 2 VCOs offers a switch to select one of the 4 waveshapes to be used by the wavefolders, and the linear FM input normalisations.

OTO Bim quick review/demo

video upload by Meska

"Quick review/demo of oto bim, focus on short delay times, i have pass the delay type,, other demo do it very well, juste e quick note:
in this revision 2.3 you have a thru mode: that disable the delay, but keep the gain filter and 12bitAD&DA for those 12bit guru :p

1979 Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2

video upload by Borish Electronics

"This is a very rare Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Revision 2 for sale on Reverb right now. I walk through all of the features to demonstrate functionality and that the synth is in tune."

via this auction

"Professionally refurbished Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Revision 2 synthesizer for sale in excellent condition! This synth is much rarer than the Rev 3 synths and has very rare and sought after SSM ICs as opposed to the far more common CEM ICs featured in the Rev 3 version. It works great and I uploaded a video to demonstrate it's functionality. There are no issues with this synth! Every button works, every key works, every LED lights, etc. There are no scratchy pots or out of tune voices. The wood is almost perfect. There are a few scratches on the face and a couple of nicks in the paint above the modulation section. All of the tantalum capacitors have been replaced. A substantial amount of CMOS ICs have been replaced. The EPROMS have been replaced with modern equivalents. All voices have been recently tuned."

1973 Moog MiniMoog Model D SN 2811

via this auction

"This one has just come back from the technician where it was recapped, bus bar/key contacts cleaned, and fully calibrated. This evidently came out of a studio in Nashville where it had been somewhat maintained in the past (including multi-turn trimmer installation, key bushings/leveling) and didn't need a ton to get it in a good spot. Now it rips. It has that perfect amount of sketchy/hairy that is just incredibly musical. Nothing sounds quite like it! Cosmetically, there is a little dink in the corner wood (pictured), but otherwise quite clean for 50 years!"

Mutronics Mutator w/ MIDI SN MU952M

via this auction

"There are only 1000 of these made, and this one is the rare version with midi. This unit has 120v and 240v switching built in and easy to switch between the two depending on your country's power needs (I have not seen too many of these with this features). The sound is amazing. The Mutator is famous for being used by Daft Punk and Radiohead among others. Smooth buttery warm filters with aggressive sharp resonance, this sounds great for everything, drums, bass, synthesizers, vocals, entire tracks. Don't miss out on this classic filter!"

Vintage 70s Oberheim SEM - CPS1

via this auction

"This one is in full working condition and was recently gone through, tech'd and fully checked by Syntaur Synth Specialists. It's calibrated and working properly.. it sounds amazing.. software will never sound like this and while the newer Tom Oberheim sems are good and sweet, this original delivers the biggest, richest sound. All pots, jacks, and switches work great.. note.. these pots are over 40 years old and while they work and do work great, they do not feel 'new'. NO problem dialing in any setting as when it was new though. Just stating for full disclosure."

Spaces - a DIY-Synth live session!

video upload by Albert Nyström

"This is a live recording using only my homemade synths. all sounds you hear comes directly from my own synths, except some reverb and delay. The only equipment used that I didn´t build myself is the Digitakt that acts as a sequencer as well as an audio interface.

The modular system plays the arpeggios & all percussion.
The analog Monosynth plays all bass stuff.
The Guitar-synth plays all lead sounds.

Hope you enjoy!"
