Cavagnolo Exagone

via this auction

Note the pics include the keyboard version and the accordian keys. Not sure if the listing includes both or just random pics. The don't appear to have been featured on the site previously, as you can see in the small handfull of posts featuring Cavagnolo here.

You can find a demo of one previously posted here.

"CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is definitely one of the rarest combinations of an old French analogue! According to the Cavagnolo website, only 25 versions of the composite keyboards were produced and another 75 with accordion keys, Depech Mode owns one and uses it in the Delta Machine EPK) The Cavagnolo EXAGONE XM64 is a flammable monophonic analog synthesizer manufactured in France in 1982 Some features: 2 VCO with SUB OSC and many waveforms (includes very cool and powerful PWM which can be modified by LFO!), VCF, LFO 1, LFO 2, LFO DELAY (a kind of repeating LFO), EG, ADSR, NOISE, PORTAMENTO, the great OSC Sync... 64 memory locations to save and recall tuning patches! CV / GATE IN OUT, filter control and more ... for universal external control. What about the sound? The Cavagnolo Exagone XM64 sounds like a mix of a minimoog and the Roland System 100 for some warming sounds, but it can also make very original drones due to its clever LFO guidance facilities. The CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is perfect for the musician who wants the music of Moog Roland and other sequential circuits, and the CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is fully serviced: it is in perfect working order and in excellent cosmetic condition! It is a 220V model."

Handmade Glitches (Musikraken iPad Hand Tracking + Monome Norns Fall)

video upload by Perplex On

"Here i‘m trying to utilize the handtracking features of #musikraken app on iOS to use hand gestures as midi source for creating glitchy bits. Layered on top of a generative soundbed coming from #monome #norns loaded with Fall script. A connected #OxiOne acts as a grid. Next to the sound coming from the Norns, it‘s also sending midi to the iPad playing various synths (#Aparillo, #VHSSynth and #Zeeon) at the same time. The straight beat is coming from #playbeat3 while the glitchy bits are coming from #fractalbits. The hand waving gestures are not only triggering midi note events but also modulate additional FX (#koalafx and #dedalusdelay), e.g. the distance of the second hand towards the ipad camera is controlling the comb filter of Koalafx and the opening of the first hand is controlling the delay feedback of Dedalus."

Bob Moog Foundation Raffles Off David Rosenthal's Minimoog Signed by Billy Joel

video upload by moogfoundation

David Rosenthal, Billy Joel's keyboardist/musical director, talks about the 2022 summer raffle Mini

"The Minimoog raffled in 2022 isn’t just signed by an icon: It belonged to Billy Joel’s musical director, a musician of note in his own right – keyboardist, synth programmer, and orchestrator David Rosenthal, formerly of Rainbow, who has toured with Cyndi Lauper, Robert Palmer, and Enrique Iglesias, programmed synths for Bruce Springsteen, and also worked with Happy the Man, Steve Vai and Red Dawn.
Video recorded at Strange Cranium in NYC.
Get your own raffle ticket here:"

"This summer, somebody's going to win a fully restored, vintage Minimoog signed by Billy Joel.

It's a good month when Tom Oberheim joins your team of supporters, and Billy Joel signs your Minimoog. It's still pretty crazy out there, but with Tom, Billy, and a network of supporters engaging in our mission to inspire people of all ages through the intersection of science, music, and technology, we feel ready to take on the world.

This vintage beauty belonged to Billy Joel's long-time keyboardist and musical director, David Rosenthal, who took it on tour with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow in the 1980s.

It now bears the signature of one of the most beloved and best-selling entertainers of all time.

Somebody's going to win it for the cost of a raffle ticket."

Korg Prologue -|- demo by Jexus / WCOG (B-ROLL)

video upload by Jexus (

"No talking demo of Korg Prologue. All patches custom-made by Jexus. I did not use any external FX in the demo; all the delays, phasers, noises and other effects are part of the Prologue engine & my intentional patch design. I did not use the onboard LF Comp but I used some slight EQing on some patches. I recorded my demo straight through an audio card. This is a standard factory Prologue unit – you don’t need any custom oscillators, FX or other addons (just the factory „Waves” oscillator).

Eurorack Chords and Groove 🏄🏼‍♂️

video upload by Andrea Marzilli

"Chords and Groove 🏄🏼‍♂️
There’s a lot going on here.

Basically, @qubitelectronix Bloom is sending CVs to the @mutableinstruments Tides V/oct IN, acting as the 'chord machine'.
Beads is sampling something I can’t remember tbh, transforming it in this glassy sound and receiving modulation on Shape and Time from Stages: this means groove.
Rings and Monsoon for some tasty stereo movement (old but gold friends)
@noiseeng Desmodus Versio is, as always, the captain of my ambient-washy sea.

Enjoy with headphones. 🎧"

Moog Subharmonicon Ghost Ships Ambient Patch

video upload by riotbell

"I've nearly given up on the Subharmonicon at least half a dozen times. Recently dove back into it with hopes of creating some sharable patches.

I've decided to devote the next month to really delving into this beguiling little synth in hopes of learning at least some of its quirks and secrets.

This is a slow ambient patch with reverb courtesy of the Oto Bam (ambient mode with chorus engaged).

Thanks for listening!"

A Bastl Softpop 2 Demo Where Red Means Recording Don’t Talk and There Are Hands

video upload by

"The Bastl Softpop 2 can definitely be said to be a synthesizer. I checked the manual and it confirmed this. If anyone tells you it's not a synthesizer, don't listen to them. They're wrong and they're lying to you. I'm so tired. I don't even like doing this anymore. I want to sleep until I don't have to worry about anything anymore. YouTube takes what you love, makes it a job, and then makes you hate it. I'm not going to check the analytics for this video. I never do, anyways. I'm throwing away my phone and my computer.

HAINBACH Bought The Worst Synthesizer

video upload by

"On a warm summer evening, after a few glasses of Riesling I went on Reverb and made an offer of 666 EUR on one of the most-disliked synths of all time, the Davoli Davolisint. Not thinking it would come through, as the seller wanted 1050EUR originally, I was surprised in the morning that I had actually bought it. People claim it is not even a synthesizer, but does it deserve its horrible reputation? Let's find out!"

Rachael + Deckard's Voice | Part 02 | Advanced Patching

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Part 01 has a strong focus on Deckard's Voice, this episode will shift to Rachael, the powerful 'helper oscillator' that supports FM, Ring Modulation and pitch envelopes. It provides a sine, saw and pulse waveform and a polarizing circuit to create metallic sounds from any source. It's Deckard's perfect companion module when you're looking for a more authentic CS80 experience. I also used Knobula's Poly Cinematic in an ultimate attempt to add polyphony. It sounds just awesome with Deckard + Rachael in the lead.

The last part of the video worked out extremely well so I hope you'll sit it out to the end. Love this combo!"
