Time Is Not A Healer It's A Fuel For Resentment - Look Mum No Computer, 1986 Top Of The Flops

video upload by LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

New release from Look Mum No Computer. See if you can ID the keyboard/organ/synth. Update: Answer at the bottom of this post.

"Chop Of The Plops December 1986 Screening of Look Mum No Computer - Time Is Not A Healer It's A Fuel For Resentment. Stream/Listen/Buy here :-


Sam Battle, aka LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER closes out the year with his cathartic new single Time Is Not A Healer It’s A Fuel for Resentment. The latest release from the renowned musician, innovator and maker is an upbeat melancholic indie ballad that finds him at his most contemplative.

"This is a song I have been humming for a while, I initially made up the riff when making the furby organ, and played it in the furby organ video but to me it was always this song I was playing. I wrote it in a lonely place in me life, no idea what it’s actually about but I have my ideas haha! Only sad times you can write tunes like this I think! I made it on my home made synth and an

old analog polyphonic synth to make it fit with my other tunes even though this one is a tad more on the emotional end of it all."

Speaking about the accompanying video, Sam says:

"We went to the woods at sunrise but we just missed it because I spent an hour in the morning trying to figure out a bow tie. We shot it to make it look as believable as we could it being a low budget music video from 1986 including power stances and arm waves. All the good stuff"

The keyboard is the Eko Encore 49.

Moog Rogue Vintage Analog Synth For Sale

video upload by tonetweakers

"We meticulously restored the last few Rogues we’ve sold, but it takes quite a few hours when done right, and few people wanting a Rogue will pay us for that work, so we’re offering this one without restoration, like the vast majority of rogues you’ll find on the market.

In this video, we are systematically demonstrating this rogue’s functions. As you can see, it works exceptionally well for a non-refurbished instrument.

Please check out our website at if you’re looking for (mostly meticulously refurbished) vintage synths and gear and be sure to sign up for our mailing list while you’re there. Thanks!"

NEW Eurorack FX // but what is it? and how can make the most of it? (new module reveal at launch!)

video upload by DivKid

VENO ECHO by Venus Instruments

The Veno-Echo is a powerful stereo digital delay device for Eurorack synthesisers. Retaining the essence of the original design, the Veno-Echo has been reworked for extended functionality and improved performance.

Two separate channels with independent controls for delay time, feedback, and reverse direction. Combine with width and cross feedback, for total control over the stereo soundscape. Delay times range from Karplus-Strong territory up to 1 minute and feedback up to 110% for wild self-oscillation experiments.

Parameter changes are handled with crossfades to achieve smooth transitions without pitch modulation or artefacts. Apply Doppler effect pitch-shifting via the internal modulation, ranging from subtle vibrato to fully sea-sick. Or use the Mod CV input to sculpt your own wobble.

Sound quality runs the full gamut from crystal clear repeats, lo-fi crunchy digital aliasing to highly saturated distortion, evoking the sound of overdriven valves. Further tailor the character of your repeats with warm wet line high-pass and low-pass filters, with configurable cut-off frequencies and resonance.

Generate rhythmic patterns which stay in sync with the rest of your system, or freely select from a continuous range of ratios, to dial in a rushing or dragging feel or totally out of sync repeats.

Highly flexible and intuitive controls, allowing full creative freedom with huge modulation potential. The Veno-Echo is a versatile tool for your sound design experimentation.

Yamaha DX5 FM synthesizer + 3 ROM & Xtras “Collector’s Grade” SN 1001

via this auction

"Very early serial number #1001! Maybe the first one made???any experts here. I’ve done some research on how Yamaha stamped their synths back in the 80s…so far no luck. Did they start with 0001 or 1001? [a few have been captured here, all start with 1 or 2]

Up for bid is the 1985 Yamaha DX5 in excellent condition. Close to “near mint” condition and probably one of the cleanest that you can find. This comes with the original receipt from the first owner who bought it in 10-5-1985 for $2889!

Unit shows just a few small nicks on the side panels and scratches in the bottom as seen in the photos. Other than that this is in amazing condition. Fully functional, tested and works as designed. All controls works!

It includes:
Original detachable music sheet stand
Sustain pedal
XLR cable
3 ROM cartridges
Orig power cord"

SIEL DK-700 + Arduino TouchOSC Controller

via this auction

Video in the listing previously posted here.

"A super rare DK-700, the Siel flagship synthesizer released in 1986, equipped with a DIY Arduino interface to control all the synth parameters in real-time using TouchOSC on Android/iPad. The machine has been recently serviced by a professional technician and actually looks and sounds great.

Released in 1986, the DK-700 is the best and last synthesizer produced by the Italian SIEL right before the joint-venture with Roland Corporation and its subsequent turning into Roland Europe. The DK-700 has been on the market for less than one year so only few hundreds units were sold and this inspiring synthesizer never received the love it actually deserved.

"This is a DIY project based off of FundamentalFrequency. It is similar to the Teenage Engineering OP-1.

An overview of the project can be seen here: [video above]

This was built by myself using a Raspberry Pi 4, 4GB w/64GB uSD card. It features the Tracktion Engine for its main software. All keys, encoders, etc. work and are housed in a custom 3D printed and laser cut acrylic case. Made some custom laser printed labels of which the "stop" key is rubbing off. I also compiled a custom version of the software where I added a Shutdown option to the settings menu which issues a proper shutdown command to the Raspberry Pi (avoids data loss and uSD card corruption). Also created custom Python scrips to save and load sessions. Also added on-screen keyboard to use with naming and loading the sessions. Works great with the touchscreen.

Some things this can do:
Tracks Screen
Plugins Screen
Drum Sampler
Step Sequencer
Drum Programming
Bass Sequencing
Clip Cut/Paste
4OSC Synth
Adding Effects
Editing, Loop Controls, Saving, and Track Addition/Deletion
Mixer Overview
Pitch Bend

List of hardware included:
Raspberry Pi 4, 4GB
64 GB microSD card
45 keyboard keys (serving has synth/MIDI keyboard), controlled via a Teensy microcontroller
Hyperpixel 4 touchscreen (4")
Power supply

This thing works great and is really cool to create music with. Comes loaded with a bunch of samples and instruments."

Black Corporation Kijimi: Let's Stack Witih the Hydrasynth!

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"Here are 9 patches using both the Kijimi and the Hydrasynth. The first 10 seconds of each sound are Hydrasynth only, then the Kijimi is added. Minimal reverb added, the clipping in the second-to-last sound is part of the Hydrasynth patch. Hydrasynth sounds are presets- in case you're playing along at home:

0:00 A-077
1:02 B-042
1:40 A-054
2:15 A-089
3:12 B-015
4:18 B-045
5:11 M1-016
6:15 D-068
6:56 D-087

The Kijmi adds a nice body to the Hydrasynth. As much as I love the Hydrasynth, there's nothing analog about its sound. This combination could do some amazing evolving sounds but I don't have the patience for that."

Schlappi Engineering BOUNDARY / unique 4Q VCA and function generator / extensive playthrough

video upload by BRiES

"In this video about BOUNDARY by Schlappi Engineering I demonstrate the features of this function generator/vca. Especially the 'bound' parameter on the envelope section gives us behaviour that's very unique to BOUNDARY. I tried to show every feature of the module, but I forgot to mention a few of the LEDs on the frontpanel (those tell you what's happening inside). I'm sure if you've watched the video you'll be able to figure those out when you do a quick glance at the manual.

The build quality is just great, everything is really sturdy, the knobs are heavy duty and I'm not at all affraid that I'll wiggle them off of the unit at any point in time.
