Oberheim OB-X8 & U.D.O. Super 6 similar patches brief sound battle

video upload by synthlegends

"As you might know, I have the OB-X8 only temporally in my studio. Some time ago I used to have a Super 6. Unfortunately I sold it, because I really loved the sound. So I decided to buy it again, when it was still available for the old price. So the OB-X8 will not find place in my studio anymore.
Is the Super 6 a good alternative? Well, it is like comparing oranges with apples. The OB-X8 is a full VCO based analog synthesizer with only discrete analog circuitry. The Super 6 is hybrid with NCO and analog SSM Filter. The Super 6 basic waveforms sound more static than the VCO on the Oberheim for sure. But instead of a wide stereo field like on the Oberheim, the Super 6 has it's binaural mode, which makes also very broad stereoesque sounds.
I tried to program similar sounds, which was not easy. The Pulse Bass and Triangle Piano I got quite well, but the Brass and Pad sounds didn't sound the same. Anyway the Super 6 sounds great and it is very capable to get a very broad sound palette. So, best would be to have both synths, but when I have to decide, I go for the Super 6, because it really sounds interesting and is a very creative sound designing tool.
The OB-X8 ist recorded without FX and processing. The Super 6 has some effects on board (delay and Chorus). I switched those effects off but I played all Sounds in binaural mode. So both synths are without effects and recorded in stereo.

Thanks for watching again and make some music."

"We meticulously refurbished this beautiful Oxford Oscar synthesizer and sold it to a customer. Part of the process was reloading the factory patches. Here’s a brief demo of those factory sounds, which we reloaded via midi from a sysex file. This file was previously available online but suddenly disappeared. Fortunately, we dug through an old computer and found a backup. Buy meticulously serviced vintage synths that work like new at and please sign up for our newsletters while you’re there.

All Noise Engineering plugins feature an extensive modulation system so you can get your patches moving with LFOs, envelopes, and step sequencers – plus, modulators have adjustable randomization for easy humanization. Plus, loads of presets and a handy randomize button to get you started. More info on the LFO modulation controls: [posted here]"

CLOVERLEAF - Intellijel Case Interface and Headphone Module by After Later Audio

video upload by Robots Are Red

"In this video we take a look at the new 1u Intellijel case interface module, Cloverleaf. This module can act as a line-in/line-out module, a pedal interface, and/or a headphone output utilizing the 1/4" jacks built into your intellijel case.

Jump to any section of the video here:
00:00 - Introduction
01:53 - Installation
04:21 - Module Rundown
09:05 - Microphone
09:29 - Pedal Interface
12:00 - Stereo Synth
13:48 - Guitar
15:00 - Some music"

An interface for the case 1/4" jacks in Intelljel cases. The jacks are marked as if they are part of the case, so the jacks marked out, require an input. I know it's confusing, but my brain just may be a little backwards.

The module sports both input and output for either a consumer line level (0.447Vpk) or a professional line level (1.095Vpk). These levels are controllable via jumper on the back of the module. It can also have a single input and output channel switched to pedal level. The case output is fed to the headphone amp that has a corresponding level control. The module otherwise does not have any level control and relies on using a VCA or other module to perform any level controls.

The module can essentially be run in one of three modes:

1) Stereo line level in and out

2) Stereo line level in and out via the left side and mono pedal in and out on the right side. In this mode the stereo line levels leverage TRS on the 1/4" jacks. You can use the included 3.5mm couplers to get TRS on the 3.5mm side.

3) Mono line level in and out via the left side and mono pedal in and out on the right side.

For Palette 64hp users only have two 1/4" jacks. You can choose if you want to use the case jacks as either inputs, outputs, or one input and one output.

Introducing COCO: ALA's new Create your Own Complex Oscillator Series

video upload by After Later Audio

"We are VERY excited to anounce COCO, or Create your Own Complex Oscillator. This series of stand-alone modules can be combined to create a very robust complex oscillator capable of rich sonic textures and wild modulation!
Cascades: primary oscillator
Brooks: secondary and tertiary oscillator(s)
Canyon: Centerpiece control module 1; creates even and odd subharmonics from any one of the 3 oscillators
Valley: Centerpiece control module 2; creates upper harmonics through Buchla-style wavefolding of any one of the 3 oscillators
Available 9/23/22"

COCO – Create your Own Complex Oscillator

With the COCO series the aim is to bring all the goodness of a complex oscillator while aiming to minimize some of the downsides. The main thing that I appreciate about complex oscillators is that you can have a lot of fun without having to patch too much. By default, you can get some very deep sounds that go far beyond the standard bleep and bloop. On the downside, complex oscillators are big and have a fixed set of capabilities.

V.A.I. 80 CRB Voco Strings / CRB Computer Band 2000

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"The CRB Voco Strings is an Italian take on the Roland VP-330 - a string and vocoder machine. It has a great sounding string section as a carrier - maybe one of the sweetest sounding string machines that was made in Italy? Change my mind in the comment section :)

The CRB Computer Band 2000 is an analog auto-accompaniment machine with a range of chord and arpeggiator sounds with decay controls, as well as a bass section and a drum machine with individually mutable sounds.

For phasing we pulled out a Schulte Compact Phasing A - kind of a legendary german (duh) effect that still mystifies us a bit - sometimes it's amazingly swoopy - and sometimes it doesn't really do that much at all, no matter how hard you tweak those dials."

Fully functional. Near mint – outstanding cosmetic condition. Very few signs of use.
Comes with 12V AC 1A adapter (EU plug – 230V). Not switchable!"

Analog Thru-Zero Wavefolding VCO/LFO

Pony VCO is a fully analog Thru-Zero oscillator with wavefolder and dedicated VCA in only 4HP. The module offers great stability and tuning capabilities thanks to its powerful core, based on Sound Semiconductors IC. It comes with range selector, that allows it to go down to LFO range, as well as octave and waveform selectors.

Pony VCO is also available in 1U format keeping the same functionality and control layout.

Synth Saturdays! Ambient Jam with the Korg Modwave, Aeros Loop Studio & Microcosm

video upload by Tefty & Meems

"Really enjoying the @Korg Modwave so far. This is our first jam with the synth. Per usual, an ambient looped experience. Using the trusty @Singular Sound Aeros Loop Studio to first capture an arp patch, followed by textured wavetable sounds. The Aeros is chained to the @Hologram Electronics Microcosm which is blended towards the end of the jam for a beautiful transition. Meems recorded her improvisation the following day in one take."
