Euterpe Vertice Analog Filterbank

via this auction

"Purchased new in 2021. It sounds great. It is a very lush and thick sound, and can add some killer distortion. All original contents are included. The filter board was build with the tropical fish and vintage components for $500 more.

Note: The front power switch has been bypassed. The switch was not working when I received the unit (bad plastic switch). Euterp sent me 2 replacement switches which I have included, in case you would like to have the switch. The switch did not cut power to the power transformer anyway so I felt it was not needed."

"Steiner-Parker Synthacon vintage analog synthesizer demo. This demo of the rare Synthacon mono synth from Steiner-Parker features various sounds and tweaking. Filmed at the Vintage Synthesizer Museum in Los Angeles, CA.

The Steiner Parker Synthacon is a rare monophonic analog synthesizer produced in 1975-1979. It features 3 VCOs, white & pink noise generator, sample & hold, portamento, 2-pole resonant lowpass/bandpass/highpass filter, 2 ADSR envelopes, trigger generator, 49 keys, and a ton of signal routing via numerous switches.

Only a few hundred Synthacon synthesizers were produced, according to designer Nyle Steiner. It's capable of nice sounds of course, but it excels at chaotic and crazy modulations, squelches, ring mod tones, noises and has an extremely potent filter with resonance. The legacy of the Steiner-Parker Synthacon's filter design lives on today in some modular synth designs as well as some Arturia products.

It was a lot of fun to try the Synthacon and tweak it, as all the switches make it very interactive for quick signal routing. If you have the opportunity to try one, don't pass it up!"

Note a new SYNTHACON is in the works.

Synth hack: KORG MONO/POLY trick to get the LFO into audio rate

video upload by K’s Music Lounge

"This is a cool little trick that makes use of the in-between settings on MG1 (LFO) of Korg’s Mono/Poly. There are three in-between settings all generating different rates, all pushing the LFO into audio-rate territory, allowing for FM-style bell-like sounds on the venerable Mono/Poly.

I havent seen this documented anywhere on Youtube.

I am not aware if the Behringer Reissue has the same features - do let me know in the comments below if you tried it and what the result was!

Oberheim Xpander Review

"Trying my hand at Trogly-style review of a classic synth that is not getting the respect and recognition it deserves - which I am hoping to change, one view of this video at a time."

0:00 Intro
0:38 A bit of history
1:38 complexity of analog poly synths
3:12 pointless noodling on the xpander
4:21 modular under the hood
6:53 multi mode = 6 independent mono synths
7:44 a closer look at the unit
7:56 tuning routine
9:49 US vs Japan models
10:43 power supply
11:43 conclusion
12:46 outro

via this auction

"It is the US version. The PSU is recapped, running silently and ensuring problem-free operation for the next few decades to come.

All tuning tests pass, you can see in the video [abvove].

Optically, it is in collector’s grade condition, very few and very minor blemishes on the side panels, no scrateches or dings on the front panel - again this can be seen in great detail in the video."

"This Casio appears to have never been used. When I opened one end to inspect the original batteries were still there, although they are starting to corrode. There is a spot of corrosion on inside of box but it's not liked they leaked all over. Everything is still in plastic and looks new. The casio is mint unused condition. I did run test it briefly to make sure everything is good and it is. The box looks nice but does have a little storage wear."
