Paperoga build - 11/21/2022

video upload by SynthMania

"The slow build of 'Paperoga', my newer portable DotCom, ancillary to Brigitta (but also great standalone). Paperoga (Fethry Duck) was one of my favorite characters of 'Topolino' (Mickey Mouse), a popular Italian cartoon magazine from when I was a kid in the '70s. Here in this video we are testing some oscillators, filter, envelopes. Drums from Cubase DAW."

Note the sequencer is a SYNTHETIC SOUND LABS - MINI SEQUENCER II. Some info via Noisebug:

"An upgraded version of our popular 1651 with greatly improved features. A collaboration with our friends at Division-6.

Feature enhancements over the 1650 include:

7 sequence memories
5 song memories (string sequences together)
SLUR- change pitch between steps without firing gate
Variable gate timing (including ratcheting)
ACC can be set to drop or not drop between steps, or follow gate timing for that step
Auto-advance step when programming
Live transpose (use the keyboard to shift entire sequence up or down while running)
Live edit (buttons you push while running get saved to the sequence)
1X mode (disable to use XP IN as a reset without requiring an external gate mixer)
Clock out (use ACC out jack to output clock if using internal clock)
The 1651 gives you standard CV and pulse out, plus an ACC out (Accent? Accessory?) Use the ACC output to open up a filter, enable a glide, trigger a drum, or whatever you can think of.

It has its own internal clock to get you up and running in a hurry, but you can connect an external clock if you need greater control of tempo or want to sync with other devices.

The module can store up to 5 songs of 16 sequences each, and 7 sequences of up to 16 steps each. Wow!"

"Sebelumnya saya sudah berbagi skema dan program data tetapi hasil keluaran suara stereo masih terlalu banyak kebisingan dari tampilan oled dan catu daya, sekarang saya mengubahnya ke tampilan Hi-fi dengan keluaran mono itu terdengar lebih baik. Jika kalian ingin membuatnya saya sudah menyiapkan data dan skema baru di google drive saya .
Link data dan skema :
Modul ini di buat dengan micro controller ESP32 dengan keluaran suara PWM mode Hi-fi tanpa penguat operasional saya rasa sudah cukup
Gunakan catu daya 5V / 1Amper di pin Vin jika inging menggunakan adaptor jika port micro usb cukup charger smartphone saja"


"Earlier I shared the schematic and data program but the stereo sound output is still too much noise from the OLED display and the power supply, now I changed it to a Hi-fi display with mono output it sounds better. If you want to make it I have prepared the data and new schematic in my google drive .
Data link and schematic : .
This module is made with an ESP32 micro controller with a Hi-fi mode PWM sound output without an operational amplifier, I think it's enough
Use a 5V / 1Amper power supply on the Vin pin if you want to use an adapter, if the micro USB port is enough for a smartphone charger.

SEM is a long form drone made using a single instance of the GForce SEM - a faithful recreation of the 1974 Oberheim monophonic analog synthesizer, reinstated on the occasion of Tom Oberheim's birthday. Not completely familiar with the machine prior to this session, but previously having played with other Oberheim designs such as the Matrix 6R and XPander, Burraston opted to simply explore it without any additional machines or effects processors, in order to allow the SEM to illustrate its personality naturally, which resulted in the gorgeous pillar of tone that sits before you now. Thematically, SEM relates to prior NYZ recordings such as OSC2 at Superpang and the independently released BS2::DRN4, although avid listeners will appreciate the uniqueness of SEM even when aligned with earlier work. SEM was made possible with the generous assistance of Jerome Meunier at GForce & AFX, and is offered as the twenty-first recording issued in the NYZ subcatalog at Psoma, continuing a rich lineage of vivid synthesizer music and unmapped experimentation."

"This is probably the rarest and strangest bird I've met. You may think it's a kind of simple monophonic analog 1 oscillator synth like the Roland SH 2000, but there is more than meets the eye. It took me some time to understand what's going on and to this day I am still not sure exactly how it works but it looks like the oscillator is a kind of very early FM based oscillator. Check the video, especially the "bell" presets and you'll know what I mean.

Tone is shaped by 3 faders labelled "Fundamental", "Overtone" and "Brillance", and these are interconnected.
There is a simple envelope which works as attack decay (labelled "attack" and "sustain") by default but can be switched to attack release by the push of a button ("sustain long"). Funny thing is the attack fader is inverted compared to classic synth topology: when raising the fader the attack gets shorter.
All the presets have their own envelope setting and depending on the presets the attack and decay faders do not behave exactly the same, ie the envelope faders do not totally overide the presets envelope.
You can also have the envelope assigned to the filter by switching on "VCF expand", and control the envelope to VCF amount with the "Expand" fader.
The "Expand Envelope" seems to invert the VCF envelope. It's quite efficient on some presets and not on others.
"Touch portamento" switch is actually a key retrigger option. When activated envelope retriggers on every key stroke (low note priority) otherwise the envelope is legato. So it has nothing to do with the "portamento" fader which is indeed a portamento effect. "Gride" is basically a pitch bend (upwards only).
"Growl" switch adds... growl: it adds a kind of brassy attack to the sound. Not efficient on every preset but can add to the realism of the sound on others.
There is also a LFO which can be delayed (it's more like a slow attack then a proper delay), consisting of either pulse or triangle wave shape, that can be assign to "vibrato", "wow", "chorus", "tremolo", and you can have the envelope repeat on the lfo speed thanx to the "repeat" switch.
And finally there is a noise generator with dedicated fader level and a "Noise only" switch that is self-explanatory.
This makes for a uncommon and interesting monophonic synthesizer. Very expressive in my opinion, once you managed to tame it.

I did service this one as much as I could but without any information and service manual it's hard to be sure it's sounding as it should. There are like 15 trimpots inside to calibrate the synth and you definitely can hear most are changing tone and harmonics.
Anyway it seems to fully function, it's scaled and tuned and it sounds great but again I can not be 100% sure it's sounding as it was intended.

Cosmetic wise the synth is in good condition, especially considering the rather cheap build quality. But of course it has some scuffs here and there."

Keynote Auto Rhythm MR-101 Analog Drum Machine

via this auction

"All analog japanese drum machine from the 70s. Classic sounds and patterns from this era. Very nice sounds and inspiring patterns (20 in total). There is a balance knob that can fully mute the hi hat and cymbal, very handy for more variations. Also a sustain knob controls decays of the instruments except for cymbals and offers a wider range of sound (from a deeper kick to a very tight one for instance). All in all a very charming box. It has been serviced and is fully working. Like on all those boxes there is a slight hum in the background due to the power transformer but it is not a problem neither on stage nor in the studio."

The Rare Moog Sanctuary

Moog Sanctuary Repair (by synthpro) video upload by synthpro

"This is a look at a very rare synth called the Sanctuary. This is bascially a rebadged Memorymoog Plus that was to be advertised/sold to churches here in the South, it was a push to help get synthesizers used in worship. This may not seem that big of a deal today with all the electronic worship music out there but this was a HUGE step back in this era."

New England Digital Synclavier 2 Printer 1122

Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"New England Digital Synclavier 2 Printer 1122. This printer came in with a Synclavier 2 system we're planning to keep for our studio, but we have no need for the printer, so we figure we'd pass it along to someone who needs it to print music or for the collector who wants it to complete their Synclav system. We've never seen another one of these for sale on its own so it seems they're very hard to find.

As you can see from the pics, it's in beautiful physical shape. We bought it from the original owner who said the system worked fine when he last used it, but that was a long time ago and we have found through tons of experience that we can never go by what someone else tells us about a piece of gear (as you’ve probably realized too if you’re buying vintage gear from other sellers). It currently powers on and seems like it could work, but is untested, so we're selling it as is, with no guarantees whatsoever. Paper not included, and at the very least, we're guessing you'll probably need to replace the ink cartridge, cause when does a 40 year old ink cartridge still work?"

Korg SQ-10 Analog Sequencer SN 151407 w/ Custom Wood Side Panels

via this auction

"Classic old-school analog sequencer from Korg that pairs perfectly with the MS-20. For the hardcore retro analog programmer this is the sequencer for you. CV / Gate control the SQ-10 sequencer has 12 steps (with a max of 24.) The SQ-10 outputs CV (Control Voltage) and it can also be connected to the Oscillators, VCF (filter) or LFO's of your MS synths.

This SQ-10 is in really good condition for its age there are some light scratches here and there (please see photos) but nothing that detracts from the beauty of this machine. Everything works perfectly and It's really a lot of fun to get an original sequence going just like in the 70's.

This is the sought after 117v US version and also includes beautifully upgraded wood side panels."

Spectralis 2 walkthrough: Listening to the oscillators through the fixed filterbank and LPF

video upload by MIDERA

"In this video, I go through the Spectralis 2 digital oscillators and send them through the fixed filterbank (digital) and then through the 24db LP filter so you can hear how it sounds. I attempted to showcase what it sounds like so you can hear the monosynth engine doing its thing. There are no FX applied. Everything you hear is from the synthesizer (as well as my voice, obviously).

I really only use the saw waves, so if you were hoping for more - let me know what you'd like to hear and in what way you'd like it presented."

Shift Register & R2R Ladder as a Sequencer (without sequencer) : (Eurorack)

video upload by Vaemi

"Shift Register essentially stores the data in binary form, and it shifting the data in accordance with a clock signal reference.

In fact, thanks to this feature, it is used for storing, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing data in a computer.

Multiplication and dividing are actually the results of the shifting process.

Shift Register is a module that is designed for Eurorack systems, and it can run between 0V-+5V. It runs with a clock signal. This way, all the data entered through data input is synchronized with the starting and ending times of the clock signal.

This module is a dual and 4bit Shift Register module. It can be accepted as a 4-step sequencer. The jack on the module that types data is input.Even if you enter a CV signal or gate signal, the signal you will get from the outputs is a 5V gate signal.

The first output, on the other hand, gives out exactly the same pattern you entered in the data signal, only a better-synced version with the clock,while synchronizing with the clock signal, it shifting the written patten to another output as the clock arrives.

In fact, as a result, when you enter 16-note clock signals, you get a 16-note delayed version of the patten you typed from each output.

If you use this module in the audio rate range, you can run it like an oscillator with clock signals that are hearable for human ears.

In this way, while patching with square waves in Logic, you primarily get different phase degrees of the data (square wave) you entered.

The module also has a reset input. If you send a trigger or a gate to this input, Shift Register will delete all the data in its memory.

When you record data in the data input in the momentary flow and stop the clock signal, you will see that 4 steps, which is actually 4 bits of data stay frozen inside the module.

At this point, if you redirect one of the outputs to the Shift Register's data input, and if you give the clock signal back again, the pattern will enter a 2-3-4 step loop according to the output that you use. This pattern will go on like this forever if you follow these steps.The pattern you recorded is probably out of phase in comparison to the clock signal; however, you can also select the phase of the pattern by starting the Shift Register at different times.

Another method is that you can enter the same clock signals in the second Shift Register because it is a 2-channeled Shift Register module.

If you direct the 4th output of the 1st Shift Register to the data input of the 2nd Shift Register, you can extend the Shift Register up to 7 bits."
