Instrumental Innovators DVD Featuring Dave Smith, Roger Linn, and Tom Oberheim

via this auction

I believe this was released back in 2007 based on this post. Description from that post:

"Dave Smith founded Sequential Circuits in the mid-70s, and in 1977 he designed the Prohet-5 - the world's first microprocessor-based musical instrument and first completely programmable and polyphonic synth, which set the standard for all synth designs that have followed. In the last few years Dave has returned to the hardware instruments with the Evolver and Poly Evolver synths, which combine real analog electronics with digital processing to create yet another new world of unique instruments. This DVD includes a 90 minute complete history of Dave Smith from Prophet to MIDI to the PolyEvolver and roundtable discussion with Dave Smith, Roger Linn and Tom Oberheim."

Fully Featured Analog Wave Folder: Athru

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) shares an overview and demo of the Instruo Athru, a fully featured analog wave folder module for eurorack.

Learn more about hte Instruo Athru here:

The result of an ongoing process of evolution, starting out as a derivative of the west coast timbre circuit, the wavefolders in the Instruō system have been tweaked and adapted with each incarnation. athrú is the latest incarnation of this series of Instruō wavefolders, in a stand alone package.

Plug in any audio signal and discover what wonders wavefolders are capable of; from subtle boosts in harmonics to full on spectral devastation. CV control over depth via an exponential response VCA, summing with a scalable symmetry offset offers exceptional control over timbral and dynamic changes of the incoming signal.

Alesis Andromeda Sounds - Part 1 - Most powerful polysynth ever?

video upload by Friendly Noise

"Introduced in 2000, the Alesis A6 Andromeda was a real miracle in a music world without modern analog polysynths. All big polyphonic names were no longer in production and only available in the used or vintage market. Some loved the Andromeda, some hated it, most simply didn’t come to know it because of the Alesis name and the lack of music hits featuring this powerful polysynth. The Andromeda can be described equally as a polyphonic instrument and as a polyphonic modular synthesizer. That´s how complex or deep it can be.

The sounds are illustrated with pictures of my own Andromeda. There is no video, because those are old recordings, made long time ago before I started recording videos. The purpose of the recordings was exclusively for personal use, a way to remember sounds I liked. Some recordings may still be useful today in order to get familiar with the sound of the instruments. Some sounds use the internal effects, some use external processing.

Video sections:

00:32 Andromeda pad, modular sequence.
01:14 Andromeda pad, modular sequence.
02:26 Waldorf Q pad, Andromeda lead.
03:52 Waldorf Q pad, 3 different Andromeda sounds.
05:12 Andromeda pad and bell.
06:12 Sounds with self oscillation.
08:43 Cinematic pads.
11:40 Crossmodulation.
12:49 Pad with external flanger.
13:49 Effects and drums.
17:56 Pad and lead."

Roland JP-8080 Editor and Librarian for Patch Base

via Coffeeshopped where you can find the editor.

The JP-8080 editor in Patch Base brings all the settings for a full JP-8080 Performance with its 2 Patches into a single editor. You can quickly see the overview of the settings for the Upper and Lower Patches as well as the Velocity and Control Morphing settings for every parameter.

The Upper and Lower tabs each show you a full patch on a single screen. Although the JP-8080 is wonderful for hands-on control, when you load a saved patch you don't really know what any of the settings are on the synth itself. Patch Base makes this easy. You can also copy and paste the Filter and Amp envelopes as well as Randomize or Initialize each individual patch. Individual patches can be saved and loaded, as well as entire Performances, all from one editor.

The Voice Mod tab shows you all of the Voice Mod settings in one place, making it easy to create your own custom patches without any menu diving.

The 2-Up tab shows the most important controls of the Upper and Lower patches side-by-side, for when you're creating Performances that use both patches on the same channel, and you want to compare settings between patches, or quickly copy/paste between patches.

Octave Cat SRM

via this auction

"Octave released this analog classic - the Cat - during the era of the Minimoog and ARP Odyssey synthesizers. The Cat is actually very much like the ARP Odyssey, so much so that ARP had sued them in the late 1970's for cloning their designs. The Cat is a monophonic/duophonic analog synthesizer with 2 oscillators capable of square and sawtooth waveforms. VCO 1 also has a triangle waveform. Each of the waveforms can be played simultaneously and mixed together and there are additional sub-octave oscillators on each oscillator to blend new and interesting sounds."

Akai AX60 SN 01220-01017

via this auction

"This AX60 has just been fully serviced at Main Drag music in Brooklyn, NY. All of the buttons on the front were replaced, the pots were cleaned, and some cold solder joints were repaired. The synth functions perfectly and is all original except some of the slider caps which have been replaced with arp-style rubber ones. This synth has some scratches on it and somebody scrawled "Cleveland" on the back at one point, but otherwise it is in very good condition for a vintage synth. This is one of the most unique sounding synths I've owned, and can do everything from earth-shaking bass to glassy pads. The BBD chorus circuit is excellent sounding too."

Making Music With a Swiss Power Grid Messenger

video upload by HAINBACH

"In which I use a Landis & Gyr Rundsteuerung transmitter to make music. Originally, this was meant to transmit commands over the power grid. Applications were manifold, but always custom engineered: control grid strength, set street lights, railway control or even as an alert for the fire department.

"A summer vacation dance track. It wasn't planned. I was jamming on the rm1x and did some experiments using the Kaossilator and a gate on the output of an old Yamaha PSR4600 to create some nice ryhtm patterns - selected Patch '42 Horn' and it just happened. :) The blips and plings are from the SY35, drums and bassline from the rm1x directly. Hope you like it."
