ASQ-1 ASMR : Roland-Style Eurorack Modular Sequencer by ALM Busy Circuits

video upload by Perfect Circuit

"Check out all the details :

ALM's ASQ-1 is a simple, intuitive, and performable Eurorack sequencer and quantizer that is designed to get ideas flowing quickly—inspired by the classic Roland SH-101.

Centered around a satisfying set of mechanical keys, the ASQ-1 has three modes of operation :
The first is a two-channel SH-101-style step sequencer where you play the notes you want, program rests, holds, and even slides.
The second is a quantizer mode which turns the keys into a note selector and has CV in with quantized CV out. A third, four-channel trigger sequencer mode is included that lets you program the four trigger outs with the illuminated keys. All modes are available simultaneously."

Minute (ish) Jam - Novation Bass Station 2 NO TALKING NO EFFECTS 6 Layers

video upload by HansiLa Official

"Jamming with the Bass Station 2 synthesizer. Tried to make it as spontaneous as possible with several patches being created on the fly and only doing a 2nd take on a part if I messed something up dramatically.

There are no effects or processing other than panning and layering of some tracks."

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.

Music Easel Senza Aria Scappa

Music Easel Senza Aria Scappa from CatManDeux on Vimeo.

"2022 marks two anniversaries: a half century since the debut of Buchla’s Music Easel and a decade since Alessandro Cortini performed these songs while on a solo tour. This is my attempt at recreating those songs on a more modern Easel reissue. This is inspired more upon the Control Voltage Faire performance.

I’m still working on refining the patching, and I’m not using a TimeLine delay like Cortini did. But I think I’m reasonably close. Thanks for watching! And be sure to check out Alessandro’s Forse series, which the final versions would ultimately appear (years after the live performances)."

Thanks for checking it out! I hope you enjoy!
Just press play and go about your day, Friends!"

"The videopak is available here:"

"This videopak brings the Space Invaders to the OP-Z app! Use the green encoder on the motion track to move around and press any button to shoot. Press the black "0" button to toggle sound effects on and off. The original space invaders sounds are included in the .aif file.

Cherry Audio Introduces the Elka-X - Virtual Elka Synthex

video upload by Cherry Audio

Update: user videos added futher below.

Introduction to Cherry Audio Elka-X Part 1 - Hosted by Tim Shoebridge

video upload by Cherry Audio

"Cherry Audio's Elka-X synthesizer is based upon the legendary ELKA Synthex, a rare Italian masterpiece with luxury features. Elka-X replicates the original's exceptional character without compromising sound or functionality and expands its features to deliver the authentic Synthex experience at a price anyone can afford. Cherry Audio's Elka-X synthesizer is now available at and authorized resellers worldwide at the extraordinary price of only $39.

About Elka-X Synthesizer

Cherry Audio precisely crafted each aspect of the Elka-X synthesizer to sound and behave exactly like a vintage hardware Synthex. Every effort was taken to emulate the prized tone of the original's DCOs, dynamic filter, and stunning chorus. The innovative sound-sculpting and performance features such as layering and keyboard split have been preserved, and the original's 128-step sequencer has been greatly improved.

As with its other synthesizer and effects products, Cherry Audio has kept the soul of a classic alive while updating its feature set for modern studio environments. Elka-X expands the polyphony and filter modes and introduces mono and unison modes that were absent from the original design. The extended functionality of the LFOs and addition of velocity response expands modulation potential, and a new arpeggiator delivers new performance possibilities.

Unique panel controls make it painless to exchange settings between layers, sequencer tracks, and even different presets. In addition to the original chorus effect, Elka-X adds studio-quality echo and reverb stereo effects, with independent settings for both layers. With additional touches such as chord memory, over 600 pro patches, and flexible MIDI mapping, Cherry Audio's Elka-X brings the authentic and expanded Synthex experience roaring into the 21st century.

Visit for a full list of features, system requirements, brilliant demo tracks, preset examples, testimonials, and a free 30-day demo of the software.

Elka-X synthesizer is now available at and authorized resellers worldwide. The software is provided as both a standalone application and in AU, VST, VST3, and AAX plugin formats for Windows and macOS, with native Apple silicon support for the highest performance on the latest Mac computers."

"Have you been wondering what the difference is between the opsix, wavestate, and modwave? We get this question a lot when it comes to our newest digital synth line up! Join Product Manager Natalie Chami as she walks us through the similarities between all three synths, and the types of synthesis that sets them all apart. From the sparkly, glass tones of the opsix Altered FM, to the wavestate's samples organically shifting with wave sequencing 2.0, to the modwave's aggressive and deep modulations with wavetables... Korg's Digital Synth line up will cover your sonic needs.

BETELGEUSE - Roland JUPITER-Xm - One Synth Challenge

video upload by Alba Ecstasy

"All sounds are coming from Roland Jupiter-Xm and are programmed by myself.
I am using the internal step sequencer, using the "Step Key Shift" parameter to transpose all the parts.
The purpose of playing repetitive ghost notes on the keys is to add more complexity to the drums part, that is using the iARP to detect my playing.

This track is just scratching the surface of the Roland Jupiter-Xm in a live performance, a synth that is complex, rich in features, and with a super-fat-sound!

❤️, ae"

RK008 MIDI source recording - and track expanding

video upload by Retrokits

"One track on the RK008 can contain MIDI messages for any of the 16 MIDI channels - and what if you want to make a recording more editable afterwards: Meet the expand function.

When you do a track expand, the RK008 analyzes the MIDI data and determines if it is a drum track you want to expand or if it's MIDI data with multiple instruments. It works pretty neat!"
