Creating MPE Sounds on the OB-6 with Roli LUMI Keys (No Talking)

video upload by MR TUNA Music

"MPE is the most exciting advancement in instrument technology since the inception of MIDI and I've just got my hands on the Roli LUMI Keys Studio Edition to take control of the newly updated capabilities of the awesome and analog Sequential OB-6 synthesizer.

Featuring per-note pitchbend and poly-aftertouch, the LUMI Keys makes for an incredibly expressive playing experience and brings the synth into completely new territories. It's an extremely satisfying way to enjoy the sounds of the OB-6 and something I hope you'll enjoy as I build up some patches from an initialized tone, going from basic to bonkers.

No talking or time-wasting, just pure sound design and exploration.

Roli LUMI Keys is first keyboard controller offering per-key pitchbend and polyphonic aftertouch, plus whole-key illumination for scales, performance, and composing.

Per-key pitchbend and polyphonic aftertouch
Whole-key illumination
Expandability through magnetic connectors
ROLI Studio software suite
DS5.5 sized keys
Compact and easily transportable

Its seriously a great tool for taking control in and out of the studio."

Prophet Rev 2 Famous Song Patches

video upload by Creative Spiral

"Demo of sound designs on the Prophet Rev 2 Synth - inspired by famous songs from Led Zeppelin, The Cars, Phil Collins, Prince, Rush, Pink Floyd, Journey, Radiohead, Daft Punk, Muse, Michael Jackson, Tears for Fears, and more.

In addition to the couple dozen patches shown here, there are several more famous song patches, and around 100 more patches, included in the VCM Volume 2 Soundset. The soundset uses voice modeling techniques to mimiq the behavior of vintage synths, and better capture the character of the sounds... I have many videos on the topic of voice modeling, if you want more info, or examples - it uses the same general methodology of the latest generation of Vintage Knob controls on Sequential synths, but with finer control over each parameter.

To purchase this VCM ++ Volume 2 Soundset, or for more information:"

Korg Karma - Custom Sounds Big Adventure (NO TALK)

video upload by LFOstore

"Welcome to the long awaited soundset for magical Korg Karma by LFO Team!
Countless times you wrote us comments & feedbacks regaridng this machine and here it is:

'Karma Sutra' Soundset with 128 Alive Organic Presets!

It took a long time (longer than ever) to make this soundset - we put all our effort for sound programming, overall tone & using powerful Karma Engine.

We also heard a lot of feedbacks that Triton/Karma series sounds somehow weak & sterile.

So we made a research of how to make overall tone right - descision was found:
using 2 EQ's in series - graphic one & master eq.

Now Karma will sound warm, beautiful & authentic.

Inside soundset You will find:

Massive Big Strings
Various Cosmic & Planetary Pads
Deep & Alive Drones
Various Unusual Arps
Modular Melodic Sequences
Bass Lines
Edge Plucks
Voice Rhythms

Soundset working in two formats: SYSEX via Midi & PCG via Floppy Drive.
PDF booklet navigate you through the sounds & instructions of loading.

From Ambient & Electronica to SynthWave & SynthPop with benefits of phazeDistortion synthesis.

Made by Nick Klimenko aka Chronos, a creator of 'Organica' for Waldorf Blofeld & 'WS Universe' for Korg Wavestation

Enjoy and may the music come with you!"

Elka Synthex For Sale / Wanted

"We buy, meticulously restore and sell Elka Synthex synthesizers and most other vintage synths and older electronic musical instruments. This video shows the systematic testing of one of our refurbished Synthexes. Please visit us at and sign up for our newsletters while you’re there. Thanks for reading!

NOTE: we're using Roland monitor speakers and one of them just broke, so you'll hear slight timbral differences between the upper and lower voice outputs. This is due to the speakers and not the synth. If anyone's got some white Roland MA-8 speakers they'd like to sell us, please email us."

Critter & Guitari - Cannabits for Organelle

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Download this patch here:
Cannabits is an effects patch for the Organelle that selects effects randomly. New effect parameters are synced to tempo! Set tempo and beat subdivision to adjust the rhythm of ensuing effects. There are three effects slots that process incoming sound in parallel, tripling your cannaba-randomness! Past generations of effects are accessable via the Organelle's keyboard.
To help demonstrate Cannabits we turned to the Cinematic Piano patch which was made by chkbeto. It sounds really nice!"

"A highly resonant dual State Variable Filter with Verso and Inverso CV over Cutoff Frequency.


Duber is a Dual State Variable Filter with Differential CV Inputs over the Cutoff Freq.

Duber has 3 Audio Inputs - A, B, and AB.

Duber has 3 Audio Outputs - A, B, and AB.

Duber has 2 CV Inputs for each Filter - Verso and Inverso.

Duber has 2 Touch Points for each Filter that are directly tied to Verso and Inverso.

Duber is highly resonant.

Duber can be pinged with short pulses for exciting wet pops and clicks.

Duber plays really well with Orange Outputs of the ciat-lonbarde Rolzer. (use a Format Jumbler, I suggest Low-Gain Electronics UTL Series, or my crucFX JMBLR)

Duber does not completely cut all Freq. to 0, but rather brings it down into a lush warm bed of flowing chocolate.





APEX Vol 1 - Novation Summit - Patches 1 to 16 - Dual Layer Stacks & Splits.

Additional APEX Vol 1 - Novation Summit patch demos

"Out Soon...
I'm back with some more Patches, this time dedicated to the fantastic Novation Summit. I previously made Zenith Vol 3 for the PEAK, which also loads into the Summit, however I thought I'd make 64 Dual Layer Patches for Stacks and Splits.

They are different Sounds from what I created for Zenith Vol 1 to 3 and utilize the added Functionality of the Summit, especially the Filter Functions. Each Patch is made up from 2 different Sounds, mostly Layered though there are some Splits, but of course, they can be used on their own, giving 128 Single Patches.

They're not compatible with the PEAK.

Moog One free sounds!

video upload by SMV Producer

"These two patches are free for download at :
Here are two simple patches for the Moog One. Anyway i think that they sound damn good!
So, get them!"

Moog Sub37/Subsequent 37: 64 Techno Presets+Sequences. Demo

video upload by Anton Anru

"Each preset contains a sequence with Pitch, Velocity, and Modulation lanes, up to 64 steps. The collection also includes the sequences with odd lengths: 5, 7, 9, etc. They create polymetric/polyrhythmic feel, that is quite typical for Techno.
Some presets/sequences are in Duo Mode, they create chord lines.

🎧 Get the soundset:

The pack also includes a folder with all sequences saved separately from the presets. You may use the sequences with any other timbres: choose/make a preset, go to the "Sequencer" tab, and push "Load".

ModWheel is set in all patches, it adds brightness, changes the tone, or increases the length of notes.
Patches' volume levels are set close to each other, you won't get sudden volume spikes or drops while switching the timbres.

You may use the sequences as they are, or take them as a starting point for further editing and tweaking. Try different Rates/Time Divisions, including Triplet and Dots; try changing the length of a sequence from start or/and from end; try shifting the start point; try adding Octaves, try playing with Forward/Backward and Invert modes, or simply change steps' values: Pitch, Modulation, Modulation destination. Subsequent 37 gives nice performance tools, and you can get plenty of variations just with one sequence.

I recommend syncing the synth to some external beat to get a proper impression of the sequences.

The soundset is suitable for various Techno sub-genres: Melodic, Minimal, Acid, Dub, Berlin, Chicago, Modular, Dark, Deep, Ambient.
Also, the presets can be used in other genres of electronic dance music: House, Trance, Hardcore, EDM, Progressive, Electro, Industrial, and others.
The patches cover a wide range of tones: mild and aggressive, deep and bright, soft and punchy.

The Sound of Icehouse with Arp Quadra and Minimoog Synthesizer

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

One of my favorite tracks from Icehouse called Icehouse from the year 1980

I used the ARP Quadra Analog Synthesizer for the analog strings (original ARP Solina string ensemble) and for the lead parts.

And I used the Moog Minimoog analog synth for the bass sounds in combination with the ARP Quadra string bass section.

The ARP Quadra Synthesizer from the year 1978 is one of most incredible synths ever. Used by Tony Banks, John Carpenter, New Order, Joe Zawinul and others. Here can you find the full Quadra playlist with single sound demos and one synth demo tracks. Enjoy.

Marius Leicht - Oddity 3 Improvisations

video upload by GForce Software

"in October 2022 we invited the supremely talented Marius Leicht to our studio to record a couple of iconic vintage synthesisers for his forthcoming project.

These sessions took place over several days (and nights) and when finished, we asked him to improvise with some Oddity 3 patches prior to its release. This was the first time Marius had seen or played Oddity 3 and any slider adjustments made on the keyboard controlled the new Macros feature."

"Introducing" the DUBREQ PIANOMATE

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

Introducing in quotes as the Pianomate isn't a new product. You can find pics and an additional demo of one in previous posts here. Don't miss the Crumar Performer at the end of the video above.

"There really are quite few instrument that are uniquely different than others.

The Dubrec Pianomate is uniquely different - we've never seen anything like this before - have you? The comment section is all yours.

Even before it made it to Italy we realised - right off the bat - that we were going to use this in all kinds of ways.

This video is just a few quick ideas recorded off the cuff - a first scratch on the surface - there are so many more applications for this tool :

Effects you can run it through ( a good Leslie effect would make this thing shine)

Switching the trigger bars around (why didn't we think of that for this video damnit) and on and on.

It's truly a new dimension in sound."

Snare Drums - 7 eurorack modules compared

video upload by John Schussler

"I've been collecting snare drums, and have finally gotten around to doing a comparison. There are, of course, many snare modules out there, these are just what I happen to have. I'm trying to figure out which ones to keep, and which to move on.

No additional effects added, just raw snare sound (which, I grant you, gets a bit grating after a while). But that's the thing about direct comparison, I like to keep it simple and uncolored.

The kick is an SSF Ultra Kick. Hat is Patching Panda Hatz. Sequencer is Acid Rain Constellation.

I purposely left the sequence irregular and off-kilter because a consistent beat was just too much to listen to after a while. This will irritate some folks. Apologies for that, but this was the compromise that kept me from grinding my teeth to powder.
