"music is from some weird jams I did with a friend on synths in 2008/2009

some of the gear used back then: Juno-6 (can miss that arp and edgy filter), JP-8000, Nord Rack 2x (great unusual filter sweeps and timbres), Roland JV-1080, JD-800, Alesis Micron, etc. recorded live in one pass to a stereo recorder with 2 people - no redos, real DAWless jammin' :-)"

Deckard's Voice Synced to Rachael: No Talk, No Reverb!

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"A silently-narrated video showing off some sync sounds played on keyboard with the Pro 3. The modules used are just Deckard and Rachael except a couple noted instances that have little effect.

I was having fun with some LED's but I'll tone it down in the future."

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

The RMIF Opus (РМИФ Oпус) is a rare analogue string machine/synthesizer made in Riga, Latvia by the Riga Musical Instrument Factory (RMIF) in the year 1988.

The sound range is five octaves and the instrument consists of 4 sections: piano, that synthesizes piano like lead soundings of different timbres, analog string machine, that plays wonderful string sounds with soft attack and with the possibility to control release, tremolo and the pereodically repeated beat-fading sounds. A flexible bass section, that is controlled by 2 lower octaves, that contain three 8' and two 16' registers.

The Opus is based on divide-down technology with a master oscillator and has very nice multimode filter (LPF, BPF and HPF with resonance), a fantastic chorus, ring modulator, vibrato and and a lot other features.

The first video demo with all the features can you find here: [posted here]

One of the most beautiful tunes by Eduard Atemyev. Eduard Artemyev is a soviet/russian composer of a lot wonderful film scores and great electronic music. I follow Eduard`s work since many years.

The video is made by me too.

Vintage 1981 Casio CasioTone 101 Analog Keyboard Synthesizer w/ Extras

via this auction

This one was spotted and sent in via Kurt. Pricey but immaculate. It's a preset keyboard but well used (see the listing description directly below). You can find demos in previous posts here.

"Designed and manufactured in Japan in 1981, the CasioTone 101 (CT-101) analog synthesizer is one of the most iconic keyboards of the 1980s. It’s been used both in the studio and on stage by The Human League, Blondie, Severed Heads, Goldie, Moby, Pulp, Devo, Talking Heads, the Cars, Deee-lite, Stevie Wonder, Beastie Boys, White Town, Autechre, Portishead, Bloodhound Gang, Blur, Beck, Fatboy Slim, and Nine Inch Nails, to name a few.

This one is in absolutely superb condition, inside and out. Included are the original pedals, music rest, AC cable, and hard case.

The keyboard has 49 full-size keys and is finished in satin black painted metal, has wooden sides, and a wood grain finish underneath the front of the keys.

It delivers classic 80s sounds, like its “Cosmic Tone” patch, which uses two oscillators tuned an octave apart, and as the keys are held down, the sound drops an octave as oscillator 1 fades up, and oscillator 2 fades down.

Is This the Best Mixer for Synthesizers?

video upload by HAINBACH

"The Arp Minus Noise Mixer Model 8 from 1976 seems like it's designed with synthesizers in mind unlike any mixer today. It has many creative features that I see making most sense with people that enjoy experimenting with sound. It can be clean as whistle and dirty as a Metalzone. In this video I explore its features and give my thoughts why I consider it the best mixer for synths."

"Why are people so crazy about the Mini-KORG? It's more than just a boring organ-topper, the Univox Mini-KORG K-2 is a little powerhouse of a synth. Here again is electronic music pioneer Don Slepian taking this little vintage beauty on a little tour of it's very flexible and fluid functionality and the great tones that this little beast can pump out.
