Future Retro is Back in Business

video upload by FutureRetroSynths

"Future Retro is back! New team including old faces. New product, re-releases and new product all forthcoming. Stay tuned."

And: "Website is currently down but we are working to repair this. We should be shipping Vectra synthesizers by December. Transient, Trax, and Midi Buss forthcoming. New team, big plans, new products and re-releases. Stay tuned!

Jered is currently taking some time away. He is no longer involved in the day to day. After 25 years plus, he needed a break. He is still amongst us in our design team and will hopefully always be a part of FR. An expanded team has taken over to spread out the necessary tasks amongst a small number of professional people. We have big plans but we aren't changing the Future Retro brand or character in any way.

Also, we are currently trying to fix our website and set up emails. Jered will still have an email at future retro but we are working diligently to fix some issues on that end. Please be patient with us, we aren't finished yet!"

2xVCA Exploration of Audio Rates Amplitude Modulation

video upload by gstormelectro

"Audio + Video by G-Storm Electro c. 2022

Want to spice up your ordinary analog VCOs?
In my previous VCA Tips and Tricks video I showed you how to do audio rate modulation using a VCA. It's basically a tremolo, only the control signal is another audio signal.
The result ends up sounding similar to ring mod or FM.
Today I'll show you exactly how to patch it up. And explore the cornucopia of interesting AM sounds using various input and control signals possible using a VCA.

Cherry Audio Sines: A Detailed Review and Tutorial

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We take a detailed look at Sines, a new synthesizer from Cherry Audio that focuses on building up complex sounds from that simplest of signals, the sine wave. It has four sinusoidal oscillators that can be shaped via multiple functions like width, wavefolding, and overdrive, and combined via mixing and cross modulation. Building up complex sounds from simple sources is the foundation of FM synthesis as well as so-called West Coast synthesis.

Metunar Live Set - Fresh Paint - Track 02

video upload by Metunar

"Second track of my Modular Synthesizer Live Set from 2022.

Project = Fresh Paint
Song = Track 02
Stile = Some kind of Electro.
Setup = The Dave Rossum sampler Assimil8or plays 8 loops with different length. In the modular i mix these loops live together and add some effects. With the Assimil8or it’s also possible to pitch the hole track down. I can even slow it down to zero speed, which i do at the end of the jam.
This set can also be used with a quadrophonic PA."

Delicate Tension

video upload by Igor Vasiliev

"Saxophone improvisation with BeatCutter & SpaceFields apps (iOS, macOS, AUv3).
Bass clarinet and Soprano saxophone by Hubert-Jan Hubeek, a saxophone or multi reed instrumentalist from Amsterdam,
The background and abstractions were generated from the original saxophone and clarinet track by BeatCutter app and also partially processed by SpaceFields app with using external impulse response (IR) file for natural space reverberation.
IR file for the SpaceFields app recorded by Henry Lowengard at Widow Jane Mine, Rosendale, New York,

BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel application for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the application is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This application is best for those who would like to experiment with large audio files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples.

Loop-based mangler effect for creating slowly changing rhythmic sound structures in a deep reverb space from any external signal. Great for experimenting and designing ambient and noise backgrounds with rhythmic elements.

Korg SQ-64 Quick Test -Take 2

video upload by John L Rice

"Take 2 of the previous test sequence and patch. Instead of both VCOs doubling the melody the second VCO is now playing a bass line sequence. Also the melody line is now modulating the filter resonance and the bass line is modulating the panning. I also incorporated the @corsynth glide module for the melody and switched to using the internal @synthesizersdotcom module for the reverb since the Quantec I used on the last video doesn’t translate well to mono on my iPhone! šŸ¤” I’m also using the SQ-64’s keyboard mode to transpose by octaves.

Thanks for watching my baby steps experiments! ;-)"

Synthesizers Com Walnut Base Cabinet - Modular Synth Test Drive

video upload by O.Z. Hall

"My friend James Carr built a new Walnut 44 Base Cabinet for me to house my format modules. It took a year (in his available time) to get the cabinet, but he did a really fine job of it.
It took me a couple of weeks to get all of the modules, power supplies and power cables installed.
This is my first official 'test drive' video of the new configuration.

Note: the 'Dancing Harmonics' are created by routing a random sample and hold signal routed to the 'x index' input of the Synthesis Technology Morphing Terrarium digital wavetable oscillator."

"The 76-note EPS-1 offers piano and strings, which can be layered or played separately. The strings have a touch-sensitive attack time - a rare feature for string machines of that era. This one is in top working condition, all keys, knobs, buttons, switches and sliders work. Cosmetically excellent considering its age and shows few marks and wear tear scratches lines from signs of time and usage.

Please note Power switch is not switching off 220 v power by default! ESP-1 The Power on/off switch is located on the back of the instrument and doesn't have an indicator light as such, although the Effects Speed indicator at least will always be illuminated when the power is on. You will need a stepdown/stepup converter outside of EU"

"EMS Synthi AKS 1970s Synthesizer. This listing is for the A unit only. However, the KS (keyboard-sequencer) will be available separately and is currently being serviced by Rosen Sound.

This Synthi was purchased from the original owner who taught sound design with the unit. It is fully functional and sounds absolutely incredible. It is hands down an absolutely beautiful instrument. It is incredible for sound design and re-amping. I’ve used it as a recording tool for the past few years and it’s in studio-ready condition.

The original lid is in good condition and both original latches are fully functional. The original handle is in very good condition. Feel free to ask any questions."

String, Choir sections working + sounding great. A true classic! The vocoder section working but has a bit of top-end noise that has developed over the last few years (suggest this section gets re-capped, hence the pricing break)
Cosmetically in good shape. All knobs and switches functioning, with one exception being the missing pitch control switch (though easily controlled by sliding w/ manually)."

Yamaha VL1-M V2 Rack Synth Module

via this auction

"The first model of synthesizer to feature VA (virtual acoustic) tone generation based on physical modeling, a complete departure from sampling and FM.
A VA tone generator creates sounds by simulating the physical mechanism by which wind, string and other instruments produce sound.
The virtual instruments simulate characteristics such as the shape and materials of music instruments, allowing the creation of tonal changes that respond to the breathing and playing methods used.
The VL1 was created with reed instruments and other wind instruments in mind, and thus is two-note polyphonic.

The Yamaha VL1-m is a pressure and velocity sensitive 3U rack (2 voice) Virtual Acoustic modelling synthesizer, featuring up to 2 elements, 3 effects processors, MIDI, disk drive, and 128 presets. Each element features a modelled instrument and associated controllers/modifiers. Element controllers include pressure (with preset ADSR envelope), embouchure/pitch (with IHD envelope), vibrato, tonguing, amplitude (with AADSR envelope shared with filter), scream, breath noise, growl, throat formant, dynamic filter (high, low, or band pass or band reject), harmonic enhancer (FM), damping, and absorption. Modifiers include extensive key scaling, 5 band parametric equalizer, Impulse Expander (delay), and resonator (parallel delays)."
