Arturia MiniFreak - Monster Synth Demo (No Talking)

video upload by Mamotreco

"A long demo playing multiple patches from the new Arturia MiniFreak synthesizer.
The accompanying drum sequences are from the Roland T-8 AIRA Compact Beat Machine.

Initial impressions are good, though I need to dive deeper into all the oscillator shape options. The minikeys are ok once you get used to them, they are a bit cramped though. I have long fingers and I kept on accidently hitting the sequencer or arp button with my finger whilst playing chords with my left hand, so the Minifreak would suddenly jump into sequencer mode!

Also featuring the BBC Acorn Archimedes A3000 with RISC OS 2

Making a Tape Loop to Make Music With: Sci-Fi Ambient Buchla Modular Synth

video upload by The Galaxy Electric

"This stream is very special as we kicked the whole thing off with one of our favorite techniques: making a tape loop! We were on hold with CVS and the hold music was beautifully distorted, so we recorded it with Jacqueline's phone and then we recorded it onto an 8 Second tape loop. We then built an entire improvised electronic music set out of it. The spontaneity and uncertainty involved with creating a tape loop on the fly adds to the magic and as you will see and hear, we took the ball and blissfully volleyed it to and fro. The resulting performance is quite the cosmic journey through space and time. Our buchla inspired modular, nord modular g1, tascam porta 02 mkii, handmade tape loops as well as Jacqueline's signature dual Boss RE-20 Space Echoes are all in play here."

Korg PS-3100 Polyphonic Synthesizer SN 712120 w/ Kenton MIDI

via this auction

"Korg PS-3100 analogue, polyphonic semi-modular synthesizer

Thoroughly and carefully restored to its original glory in solid Walnut case.

Two small scuffs on the top of the case (see photos) but as it’s actual wood and not a veneer, it’s easily buffed out if you’re particular about such things. Otherwise in excellent condition, clean, working perfectly.

Kenton MIDI installed"

In Line Effects Drumfire DF-500 Analog Drum Brain Synthesizer w/ Original Box & Accessories SN 17715

via this auction

"Fully functional uncommon Japanese analog drum brain with original packaging including 8 "preset" overlays! 4 of the 5 external drum trigger cables work properly (yellow wasn't working when last tested) and are designed to attach to an acoustic drum kit. Overall a very fun and cool piece of electronic musical equipment. I used a beatstep pro to sequence this feller and have make a lot of great music with it. Occasionally I would experience a holding note which could always be resolved by using some De-Oxit D5 on the sensitivity pots."
