Hohner String Performer

via this auction

"This is about as lush sounding as string machines get! The Hohner String Performer is one of the unsung heroes of the synth world. It allows blending of its different voices: Violin, Viola, Cello, Clavichord, and Piano. It also has a lead mode, implementable in its various voices. Other great features are individual sound outputs, sustain pedal input, and built on lit."

Behringer Ports PRO-VS Vector Engine to Eurorack

via Behringer:

"We have succeeded to move the PRO-VS vector engine into a Eurorack module and called it the Victor. The amazing morphing function allows the merging of different oscillators.

With our ever-expanding range of affordable Eurorack modules, the experience of modular has never been so accessible."

Note the PCB on back has musictribe, behringer's parent company.

video upload by Davide Micheli

"The video I made is on the BIT 99 electronic synthesizer built by CRUMAR in 1984. The purpose is to show some technical characteristics of the vintage electronic synthesizer.
In particular, I updated the firmware by changing two EPROMs (see the following site:
The MIDI controller is the 'Stereoping's Synth Controller'.
In the video I play some patches whose synthsizer parameters are changed in realtime by means of the MIDI Synth Controller.
To emphasize the versatility of the MIDI Synth Controller and the deep 80's sounds of the BIT 99 synthesizer, I recorded a bass sequence on CUBASE and transmitted via MIDI to the BIT 99 synthesizer.
While the sequence is being played by the BIT 99, some parameters of DCOs, VCOs, VCF etc...are edited in realtime. LFOs are modified too.
The video is improvised and I hope it is useful and fun for fans of vintage electronic synthesizers."

The History of Earth Observations - High Skies

video upload by Mat Jarvis

"Observations from orbit, music by High Skies.
The second in a series of new High Skies releases from Mat Jarvis.


(Planet Earth)
Houston what you’re seeing is the Western Hemisphere
Looking at the top is the North Pole
In the center, just lower to the center is South America
All the way down to Cape Horn
I can see Baja California and it appears now that the east coast is cloudy

Okay for colors
The waters are all a sort of a royal blue
The clouds of course are bright white
(Bright white, bright white)

The Southern Hemisphere is almost completely clouded over
And up near the North Pole there’s quite a few clouds
And a long band of various cirrus clouds that extend straight out across the Atlantic

Roland MC-202 clock with tape audio from an mpc live

video upload by deepeightyeight

Old school trick.

"Mpc live output 5 goes to roland mc202 to slave it with perfect timing
the mpc is sending pilot sound and then beep clock sound to clock the mc202 without any midi to din converter is very stable, the only pain is u have to activate mc202 meanwhile pilot sound is playing, so u have to make the procedure every time, but it works
the audio clock u hear is just to let u know what is going on, i assigned to output 5-6, 5 goes to mc202, 6 goes to mixer to understand"

"This time it is not about the wine, it is about the beer: The awesome Karmeliet Tripel!
Just kidding. It is about the majella Implexus, maybe the most impressive monophonic synthesizer currently available. A great blend of Eastcoast and Westcoast synthesis.
And about the beer! Cheers!

1975 Korg SB-100 Synthe Bass

via this auction

"Excellent Condition
Comes with original Korg Lid / case that closes up snug like a suitcase
The tolex has a few scratches but it’s in superb condition for 1975.

Nothing was ever wrong with my Synthe bass it always sounded great
But since I decided to sell it I wanted to drop it off for a routine service visit and have it cleaned up and gone over.
Dropped it off on Sept 9th, 2022 at Bell Tone Synth Works, Philadelphia PA
Just picked it up yesterday 9/27/2022

This Bass Synth is a beast !
Instant room shaker and the Traveler VCF is so unique.
4 waveforms and a 5th waveform that’s labeled phaser that just has a vibe all its own.

The receipt from Bell tone Synth Works service visit is attached in the last photo
It’s not my business to share what their fees are so I didn’t show the prices in the invoice

It’s Functioning flawlessly
If your gonna buy a vintage Korg Synthe Bass it’s a must you get one that’s been serviced and maintained!"

Yamaha CS-50 Polyphonic Synthesizer SN 1464

via this auction

"The most natural sounding electronic instrument I’ve ever played. The aftertouch is soooo dreamy. Need to fund other purchases. This is likely one of the last opportunities to own a CS 50 for this kind of money before full blown vintage market sillydom claims it. Purchased recently from second owner, very well looked after."

The CS50 is four voice polyphonic. The CS60 is eight and the CS80 is eight w/ two simultaneous patches. All three feature aftertouch but only the CS80 features polyaftertouch.

Osmose sound design work in progress #5

video upload by Expressive E

"This video is giving a sneak peek at the current state of some sounds that our in-house sound designers are programming using the EaganMatrix by Haken Audio, Osmose's internal synth engine.

These sounds range in different categories such as subtractive synth sounds, FM keys, physical modeling pluck, and pads, all taking advantage of the new keybed interactions offered by Expressive E's AKA (Augmented Keyboard Action©).

Buchla / TipTop 245T Sequential Voltage Source - updated

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I really felt I needed to edit and reupload this one. A Buchla 'pulser' is something different. I knew that, but I forgot because they sound like squares and PWM. But they're actually squares with little envelopes which makes them ideal to ping a filter or LPG. So I had to set this right and add some scopes. Thanks Rainer D for your information!

In essence, the 245T may be one of the earliest sequencers in synthesizer history. The first one ever was desgined by Raymond Scott in 1951. Buchla's 245 design (1970) originated from the 145 (1964) and Moog's sequencer was conceived in 1968. So it's a bit like a dinosaur compared to modern superpowers like the DAW and Eurorack gear with big displays (Vector, Westlicht, Eloquencer, etc). So the 245T is the opposite of advanced. And yet, it can really bring any rhythmic patch (in any system) to life. It can be amazing with a sequential switch and a quantizer. It's going back to basics, but these basics can render amazing results. It's a real Buchla."

Introducing Song Mode on Digitakt, Syntakt, Digitone & Digitone Keys

video uploads by Elektron

Update: user videos added below.

"Check your radar, Song Mode has splashed down on planets Digitakt, Syntakt, and Digitone. It’s been a… somewhat generously requested addition to the Digis, and we’re delighted to bring this powerful feature on to those machines. Song Mode lets you create, edit, and play compositions made up of dozens of your patterns. This makes it a hugely useful feature for all kinds of scenarios and for all kinds of artists.

Customize your backing track, leaving your hands free for other awesome gear. Extend beyond the limits of the 64-step sequencer. Create entire set-lists in a single song. And that’s only scratching the surface of Song Mode’s possibilities.

There are plenty of creative tricks to explore in Song Mode as well, ensuring that hitting play is only the beginning of its potential, plus a bunch more features and improvements such as Portamento and global FX/mix on the Syntakt and Keyboard Fold on the Digis. Keep an eye on our channels for the variety of ways that Song Mode can work for you. Find out more about and download this sublime OS Upgrade:"

Song Mode for Digitakt Digitone Syntakt is here!

video upload by Dave Mech

"So they finally did it. They added song mode to the digitakt, digitone and syntakt! I think a lot of people will be very pleased with this. Really cool to see that Elektron keeps updating their line-up with really major updates that keep the instruments alive and relevant yet again for years to come.

In this video I show you how the song mode works and how you can also use it in a creative way. There was also a major update to the firmware of Syntakt adding a lot of great functionality like Portamento, global fx settings, midi mod matrixes and a few other very useful features. Beyond the scope of this video, and the video I did record to showcase those functions was unfortunately ruined. So maybe next time :)

Anyway, enjoy!
