Yamaha Rm1x dreamy house beat - sky and clouds

video upload by rm1xapm

"In this jam I am using sounds from the Yamaha Rm1x of course, the PSR 4600 (is running through a 20 year old Behringer Virualizer FX unit for some reverb) and the SY35 for the background synth sound. Last but not least the Korg Kaossilator Mini makes some noise. You can hear the Rm1x right at the beginning playing the portamento synth, IMO it fits perfectly with the FM sounds of the PSR4600, its a great combo. Finally the main mix is compressed to tighten it up. Enjoy."

video upload by sonicstate

"Collabs are all the rage these days, and this one comes from a meeting of and massive Youtuber/Producer Andrew Huang. Ghost is a multi-function effects and processing module, with delay, filtering, reverb, sidechaining and distortion, but not necessarily in that order - its, fluid due to some nifty DSP work from

Sunset at the balcony while playing synths + emergency radio

video upload by Agustín Spinetto

"I've been playing my modular synth at the balcony and catch some of the colors of the sunset. Also connected my emergency radio, that has a winding crank for getting electricity, and live looped it using the Monsoon module. Everything was controlled and played with the sequencer from Korgs that I bought a couple of months ago, and I am still learning how to get the best from it.
I specially like how it gets dark as time pass by, Check it out!

Estuve tocando un poco los sintes en el balcón y justo pude filmar los colores del atardecer. También conecte la radio de emergencia que tiene una manivela para darle electricidad y la loopee en vivo usando el modulo Monsoon. Todo lo estuve controlando con el secuencer de Korg, que tengo hace unos meses y que todavía estoy aprendiendo a exprimirlo lo máximo que pueda.
Especialmente me gusta como se va escureciendo mientras pasa el tiempo, fijate!"

This Analog Synth Arrived Broken...

video upload by HAINBACH

"When I first heard the Crumar DS-2 I was enchanted: it sounds absolutely wonderful and is, like most Italian synths, a true player's instrument. I get why Sun Ra dug it so much. But it is a risky synthesizer to buy: according to it is one of "the most unreliable on the used market". And mine was no exception. The seller claimed that "you can make music with it" and he was not wrong, even though he did not say it was this messed up. I was very close to sending it back, but then I started really playing it. This is what happened.

Get the tape and book of my DS-2 album 'Tagwerk':

Hainbach is the paradigm of the revaluation of outdated material and the reconditioning of machines destined for other purposes that have nothing to do with sound, although his work as a researcher is currently much broader, his technological mastery is possibly one of the most advanced of our era.

Tagwerk is an album that honours Hainbach's way of working. It is recorded on a Crumar DS-2, an early Italian synthesiser he acquired and which began to malfunction shortly after he started it up, hence the title. This album is about embracing the broken and letting it inspire you. Much of it was recorded in two days, not even daring to open the window or turn off the synthesizer for fear that inspiration would escape or that it would break completely. He recorded 22 tracks in this marathon state, and the ones on this release are the ones that survived. There is a sonic magic in that era that is unsurpassed.

Tagwerk is accompanied by a book that tells the story of this German producer and also discusses many of his machines and working techniques.

"Vintage analog EKO Tiger Junior organ with rhythm machine from 70s made in Italy.

This one is in top working condition, all keys, buttons, switches, speakers and sliders work. Cosmetically out and inside is excellent clean considering its age and shows few marks and wear tear scratches lines from signs of time and usage and some plastic bent.
It has been serviced added with audio output plug socket, also drums on rhythm machine can be customized parameters from inside panel to get for example more punch on kick bass drum, so there is lot of possibility for modifications like circuit banding to get unique character sounds."

"This unit came to us in relatively poor cosmetic condition, so our tech removed the original paint and applied a clear coat. He also fully restored the insides to make this unit work perfectly and hopefully be more reliable than other Synares out there.

We sold one other silver Synare 3 in the past and it didn't have any labels on it. Our customer asked us if we had a way for him to label the parameters, so we gave a local graphic artist the originals and had him make us a couple sets of stickers. The sticker material is different from the original, but they do the trick. We applied stickers to this unit, though we think it looks better (and more mysterious) without them. We put a lot of time, love and money into this synare and the result is a perfectly working example that's justifiably priced higher than other lesser examples. Plus, who else is selling a silver synare?!"

MOOG TAURUS II Vintage Bass Synth Pedals

via this auction

Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"Synth, pedals and power supply. Meticulously overhauled - a process requiring 16 hours of valuable skilled vintage synth tech time - and way better than the other lower priced ones out there. You get what you pay for. It's like a Rogue but without a keyboard. Instead, you play it with your feet. Or via CV gate.

Here's what our tech did to this T2:

-Removed melted foam layer between front panel and faders and cleaned up. This stuff makes a mess and takes a long time to remove. So annoying and necessary for all Taurus 2s and Rogues.
-Removed slide pots, opened and cleaned and lubed, reinstalled.
-Disassembled, cleaned inside and out.
-Cleaned and lubed key contacts.
-Removed bender and modulation wheels, which were originally yellowed, and bleached them so they'd be white again.
-Replaced felt.
-Replaced rubber feet.
-Replaced terminals for molex connectors (x6)
-Installed new wooden sides.
-Recalibrated VCOs, VCF, VCA
-Replaced original adapter with new one."

"This is one of the original keytars. Connect it to your Prophet-5, strap it on and show that guitarist who's boss!

Since this is generally sold as a collectors item, the price is for an unserviced, untested unit without the special cable you’ll need to hook it up to a prophet-5. Any decent tech could make that cable for you, though the parts are likely not cheap unless they already have the type of cable required. We have no idea whether or not it would work once hooked up - we have no reason to believe it won’t, but, at the very least, this type of keyboard mechanism always needs to be properly rebuilt (bushings replaced, bus bar and j-wires cleaned, etc) in order to work properly. We would normally do this work but need our tech to focus his limited time on more profitable items."

"Granny’s back with a brand new lid: our classic desktop granular sampler gets a facelift, bringing her into the modern age with enough usability upgrades to last another lifetime, rehomed in sleek black PCB-material to help it look the part amongst the latest in the Bastl range.

Music by the one and the only:

"Granny’s back with a brand new lid: our classic desktop granular sampler gets a facelift, bringing her into the modern age with enough usability upgrades to last another lifetime, rehomed in sleek black PCB-material to help it look the part amongst the latest in the Bastl range.

The Microgranny 2.0 that you know and love is still there under the facelift: lo-fi sound full of character packed into a hands-on monophonic desktop sampler that is a joy to experiment with. Plug in your microSD card loaded with 8-bit samples, or record them live through the in-built mic or line input, and jump into play with 6 samples right under your fingers, or instantly recall up to 60 saved presets."

Playability is paramount
The two-tier menu lets you dart between editing grain size or warping the playback speed, and the new-look tactile knobs grant better control than the previous model. The hazy plastic case is gone, and the PCB case’s sharper text makes the modes under the new and improved buttons more enticing – delve into Randomized mode, Legato playback, or the Instant Loop function to extend the virtually limitless possibilities of the surface controls yet further.

MIDI Control? Yep: play specific grains with keys, control the CC values remotely, even clock-sync loops and grains. Take your Granny for a walk in the park with the battery power, or run it through a wired 9V supply.

Granny comes with gifts
To celebrate the revival of one of our most loved instruments, we pestered Rephlex Records regular and modern-day Synthfluencer Bogdan Raczynski for a custom sample pack full of his trademark weird and wonderful sounds. Granny Reloaded comes with it pre-installed, giving you a fun and formidable toolset from the moment you power up.
