Additional Tone Tweakers Listings, also on Reverb

"This unit is in excellent working order. When we got it, the internal battery had died (which has likely happened to most if not all of them by now), so we replaced it and reinitialized the memory. Patches 127-255 disappeared when the old battery died, so these user-programmable memory slots are now free for you to write your own patches into."

Andrew's Moog Modular 1C Restore Part 4 (by synthpro)

video upload by synthpro

All parts here

"Hey Guys,
We made it to a part 4 of the Moog 1C. Today, I demo of the 956 ribbon controller that goes with Andrews modular. I finished it up this morning and wanted to share it as well. I didn't mention this in the video but the ribbon controller also has CV memory so when ribbon is released, it will hold the CV levels it was at, (just like a keyboard circuit).

Thanks for watching and as always I appreciate the support.

video upload by Retroaktiv Synthesizers

"Here's a short demo of the "synth bells" category on the Retroaktiv PG-2K's patch generator. Create infinite new sounds at the touch of a button. The patchgen algorithm in this clip generates bright, shimmery, synth bells, usually with some release. Each algorithm in our patch generator creates different styles of synth sounds. All of our controllers have an extensive patch generator like this."

There are over 20 other algorithms on PG-2K, including pads, polysynths, brass, basses, strings and more. Retroaktiv controllers are more than just a bunch of knobs on a pretty enclosure."

Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about the Roland JP-8080. Is this classic digital 90s VA synth pioneer and rack synth / desktop synth sibling of the Roland JP-8000 keyboard just good for the legendary trance sounds and 90s rave cliches or can we coax some timeless tones out of it?

"(EPILEPSY WARNING: contains flashing rhythmic lights)

it's been a while

finally managed to get around to recording this liveset - nothing was prearranged as per usual, and it was recorded in two takes because of my camera's recording limit (it can't go past 24-ish minutes without stopping)

hardware unseen: polyend play (handling MIDI for the lights), TE TX-6 (for recording)"

Torso Electronics T-1 update 2.0

video uploads by torso electronics


1. Torso Electronics T-1 update 2.0
"We’re excited to announce the biggest update to the T-1 firmware yet!

Important features in the new update 2.0 include an extension of the sequencer engine with per-step editing (parameter locks), FX tracks, and many more.

Find a detailed changelog and updated user manual via the link below.

Update your device via the T-1 config tool. Happy sequencing!⁠"
2. T-1 - performing is composing
"The T-1 is an instrument designed to be played in the here and now. Whether you are working in a studio or on stage, the path between musical inspiration and performance has never been shorter. Make relative parameter changes on one or multiple tracks simultaneously, save the changes or return to the starting point. With the T-1, your music-making process is a constantly evolving flow."
3. T-1 - not your average sequencer
"T-1 is a 16 track algorithmic sequencer at the center of your studio. The T-1 offers a generative workflow with focus on immediacy and playful exploration. Whether on stage or in the studio, the T-1 will inspire you with fresh ideas and help you push the boundaries of your music.

In short, this is a fundamental rethinking of the sequencer as a modern, fun, and inspiring instrument."

Solton Programmer 24 / Solton Project 100

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Italo Disco Machines?
Not false - but these two offer so much more.
In the next videos we'll be exploring the sound capabilities of the Solton Programmer 24 and Solton Project 100.
These were both launched around the same time in 1984 and didn't cause many ripples in the synthesizer sea.
Overrun by sleeker Japanese machines they seemed painfully dated already at the moment of their release.
But adjusting the rearview mirror to seek a more timeless, or rather the slightly more dated, vibe of a few years prior, we think they stand the test of time well and sound pretty awesome.
The Solton Programmer 24 is the obvious song writing tool while the Project 100 adds the depth and richness in sound that the former machine lacks.
In our opinion these two form a dream team ;)"
