6 minute Keyboard Jam: Voyager, Deckard's Voice, Redtron

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"This is a casual improv using a Moog Voyager, Black Corp Deckard's Voice, and a Nord Stage, which controls Redtron. Redtron is a great free mellotron VSTi that uses publicly available samples. This is a fun combination because the Mellotron choir and the Moog are very full sounds, while the Rhodes and Deckard's are thinner and cleaner."

Sequential Pro 3 lead at 2:41.

Oberheim OB-X for sale meticulously refurbished and improved by Tone Tweakers

video upload by tonetweakers

"Here’s the latest Oberheim OB-X that we meticulously refurbished and improved. This unit has been carefully rebuilt and modified to not only work absolutely perfectly but to also tune well throughout its range, which is often not possible with a stock OBx. We don’t cut corners here. This process took a whopping 75 hours of skilled vintage synth tech time, but that’s what it takes to do it right. Played by @jaywires (who you should follow). This item is for sale on our website. Buy vintage synths that work like new at, and please sign up for our email newsletters while you’re there. Thanks for watching and reading!"

KadImprov #11 - Desert Crossing - #ProphetRev2 - MoogMother-32 - #Syntrx - #ConcertmateMG1

video upload by KadiMusic

"While designing a patch on the #ProphetREV2 I kept going to this melody.
Playing the notes while turning the knobs.

The melody and the patch came together: Desert Crossing - A vision in the desert.
Each instrument is representing a specific element in this story.

The Moog #Mother32 for the rhythm of the caravan and heavy steps in the burning sand.
To represent the harshness of the blistering sun I created a recurring buzz sound played on the #Syntrx and a hot sirocco wind blowing on the dunes with the Realistic #ConcertmateMG1.

Let me know what you hear in the comment section.

Thank you for watching."

New Casio Watch Inspired by John Mayer's Childhood Keyboard

video upload by Hodinkee

"The G-SHOCK Ref. 6900-PT1 By John Mayer features a dusty matte blue case and strap, a more playful color combination that’s an excellent companion to the first two collaborations. Peach, coral, and turquoise from the PT-1 keyboard were brought in to highlight the 'Triple Graph' display, which sits right at home in the soft cream dial. Darker grey was pulled from the sharp and flat keys of the PT-1 keyboard and added to the illuminator button. All four indicators for the buttons share the navy color from the writing on the PT-1, a perfect accent on the lighter blue background. The G-Shock Ref. 6900-PT1 By John Mayer gives you both the toughness you expect from a G-SHOCK with a colorway that will make your inner creative child smile."

via Reverb

"Being musicians and music fans, we here at Reverb know John Mayer for his guitar-playing and his best-selling signature Silver Sky. But he's also deeply invested in a whole other type of gear: watches.

Mayer, the horologist, is as much a figure to fellow watch lovers as he is to Boss BD-2 enthusiasts, sitting down for multiple interviews about his extensive collection and even getting into the watch design game himself.

In recent years, he's collaborated with the premiere watch site Hodinkee and a brand that, like Mayer, straddles the world of music gear and watches: Casio.

The partnership's latest creation is the Casio G-Shock Ref. 6900-PT1, a digital watch inspired by the PT-1 Mini Synthesizer.

Casio first built the PT-1 synth in 1982 and continued production until 1988, meaning it was one of the many affordable synths and samplers the company released during Mayer's early childhood.

The toy-like PT-1 is a monosynth—meaning it can only play one note at a time—but it packs in more features than parents probably expected. While there are just four simple tones (piano, violin, flute, and the mysterious 'fantasy'), there's a built-in drum machine with the same spread of rhythms you'd find on an old Roland or Korg, and—pretty amazingly, especially to a kid—a sequencer.

To really seal the deal for 'home keyboard' playing, it can run on four double-AA batteries, has its own speaker, and a headphone output.

John Mayer's new G-Shock takes cues from his own childhood PT-1, with its blue enclosure, though you can also find the synth in white, pink, black, and red."

Patrick Cowley Sequential Circuits Pro-One synthesizer + Roland TR-808 refurbished by Tone Tweakers

video upload by tonetweakers

"We recently acquired Patrick Cowley’s Sequential Pro-One. We meticulously refurbished it just like we refurbish all the similar vintage synths we sell on our website. We also added the MTG turbo CPU update and MIDI retrofit. We didn’t want to drill holes in the back panel, so we ran an Ethernet cable out of the cable slot in the back to plug into a small external midi connector box. This instrument is now part of the incomparable collection of gear at The Synth Sanctuary electronic music studio in NYC. Track programmed by @jaywires (who you should follow), who will be recording a lot with this classic instrument in January of 2023, if all goes as planned.

4ms Shaped Dual EnvVCA - Daedelus Jam

video upload by 4ms Company

"Our friend Daedelus using their Shaped Dual EnvVCA for a little radio scan inspired sample jam! Unlike conventional analog envelope modules, the waveform of each envelope can be controlled with a slider or CV without changing the envelope timing!
#4msENV #4msDEV #4msSHEV
Shaped Dual EnVCA

The Shaped Dual EnvVCA is a two-channel analog envelope generator with variable waveshaping and a stereo linear VCA. With a wide time range from an hour to 2.5kHz, and a plethora of CV inputs and attenuverters, it can be used as an LFO, audio-rate oscillator, slew limiter, waveshaper, ASR/ADSR/complex EG, independent audio/CV VCA, envelope follower, sidechain processor, and general utility module. Each channel has dedicated linear outputs plus attenuverters and offset controls for the variable waveshape outputs, making it an ideal modulation source and stereo VCA. 100% analog, 20HP, $339

Yamaha Rm1x electro house polyrhythm froschkonzert

video upload by rm1xapm

"Track: Froschkonzert. For this 1999 style electronic house track I took the Yamaha Rm1x out of my setup - back to the roots with nothing else but the blue box and a midi controller/keyboard (must have because of the velocity control). You hear internal sounds only with a bit of multi-compression in post. I used a lot of the internal effects and filters to shape the sounds. For the polyrhythm stuff I used the on board midi delay with some timing offset. My son (7 years) was helping with some nice artwork for this video."

Serge Modular Paperface 2.0 - Official 50th Anniversary Edition

Serge Modular Paperface 2.0 - Rhythm & Stealth

"Exploring the rhythmic side of the Serge Paperface easel - Serge's 2022 redesign of the original 1st generation Serge synthesizer from 1973. Single take recording."

See the Random Source label below for more.


"The Serge HELIOS is a powerful voice panel that brings the raw Paperface oscillator sound to a new level and is the ideal basis for both tonal and experimental sound explorations. Serge's redesign of the 1973 VCOs adds temperature compensation and exceptional tracking over 6+ octaves. The Oscillator+ adds an PULSE OUT with pulse width modulation.

The voice panel comes built and calibrated in a superslim boat and is designed to be powered externally (e.g. with a mobile PSU) - PSU not included."


"TEMPO DI ROMA offers a unique combination of sequencing, programming, switching and logic, that brings Paperface to a new level. The classic GATE sequencer is no longer alone - two 4-step programmers that are also sequencers (with HOLD, RESET, UP/DOWN) can be run independently. Serge's new metronomic Clock is a precise, temperature-stable analog tempo source that can bring any of these sequencers to life. Three Bi-Directional Switches allow complex combinations of the Sequencers (or even audio signals). The bottom switch is special: it includes a Flip-Flop so that with the first trigger, the Switch is turned ON (and stays ON), until another trigger turns it OFF again. An additional FLOP output is also added. Last not least the panel contains a PEAK&TROUGH section. With logic signals, PEAK (max function) acts like an boolean OR, TROUGH (min function) like a boolean AND. However, PEAK&TROUGH can also be used with audio signals or CV.

The sequencer panel comes built and calibrated in a superslim boat and is designed to be powered externally (e.g. with a mobile PSU) - PSU not included."


"The Serge PARIS-FLASH combines the key Serge modules of the Paperface era, especially slopes and envelopes, into one panel. While it may look like a system primarily designed for CV-Control, it is equally strong in the audio range.

The slopes panel is to be released in SPRING 2023 and will come built and calibrated in a superslim boat and is designed to be powered externally (e.g. with a mobile PSU) - PSU not included."

Arturia Minifreak meets MS-20 Filter. Sound and Presets Demo

"Arturia have added a new plugin to their filter collection: MS-20. It is taken from the quite recent MS-20 synth emulation. The plugin has High and Low Pass Filters, Distortion, and modulations. In this video, I pass Minifreak (with my recent pad/strings/drone presets) through the filter, and get new warm, noisy, rhythmical timbres.

How to create complex bouncing ball simulations - with ADDAC 503 Marble Physics

video upload by Monotrail Tech Talk

"The ADDAC 503 Marble Physics is a module that simulates the behavior of a ball on a square plane. The plane can be tilted over two axes, and you can control things like the elasticity off the edge of the plane, and simulation speed. That sounds like fun, but in this video I also show how it can be used to create interesting patches, and control voltages."
