"Take a look at what we've been doing this past year! From our special Fiftieth anniversary of the ARP Odyssey celebration to acquiring not one, but TWO vintage ARP Odysseys for ARPs for All and a 16-Voice Piano. We've interviewed Odyssey users from Herbie Hancock to Billy Currie, and were hosted from the UK to LA.

We've also created started some new relationships with SynthCube, SynthPlex, The Museum of Making Music, Beats by Girlz and the New England Synthesizer Festival, visited GForce in England and many friends in Los Angeles.

Next year we are finishing the first round of archiving, and focusing on fundraising for our first Artist-in-Residency and acquisitions of instruments for the ARPs for All collection.

Sequential Trigon-6 : Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer : Sound Demo + Presets

video upload by Perfect Circuit

Read More on the Blog :

Check out more Sequential :

"Sequential's Trigon-6, is an analog, six-voice polyphonic keyboard synthesizer much in the spirit of the Prophet-6 and OB-6—but it has a number of tricks up its sleeve, including some signal flow features never before found on a Sequential synth. Three oscillators and a ladder filter per voice, we think you'll find it's perfect for capturing some quite familiar vintage synthesizer tones that aren't quite covered by more Prophet and Oberheim-like if you're looking for some real punch and power in a polyphonic synth, you're going to want to take a look at Trigon-6."

Black Corporation ISE-NIN: Just the Presets (No Talk, No Reverb!)

video upload by Mostly Synths and Keyboards (Logan)

"ISE-NIN with no reverb, compression, EQ, or any other processing. Just the volume was raised.

This video was recorded during my first couple days with the ISE-NIN, which is the best sounding polysynth I've ever owned. I started with the presets and I'm partial to the 'vintage' bank. I did this video in a hurry so I apologize for it being unpolished- I was just so excited to get some sounds of the ISE-NIN online because there's not enough demos of it.

The synth is not without faults (mostly little bugs that could maybe be fixed in a firmware update) but I'm glad I bought it. It's an outstanding instrument of the highest caliber. I'm hoping its quality shines through my amateurish video."

"The Doepfer Drehbank is a programmable universal MIDI controller with 64 knobs. Each of its knobs can send any MIDI message, including Control Change, Pitch Bend, Aftertouch, Note On, and SysEx messages. You can use the Drehbank to get instant hands-on access to any MIDI parameter in almost any piece of MIDI gear, including new and old synthesizers, software and VST synths, rack effects, sound modules, DAWs, and more!

The Drehbank comes with presets for ReBirth, General MIDI mixing, and Yamaha groove boxes. The Drehbank also has a snapshot feature and two user defined banks for 128 total controls per setup. It ships with 8 factory setups: 2 Rebirth, 2 Rmx1, controllers 1-64 (MIDI channel 1), controllers 65-128 (MIDI channel 1), selected Controllers (MIDI channel 1), and a GM mixer (MIDI channel 1-16). In addition to MIDI IN/OUT, there are 8 CV inputs for external control voltages (0...+5V) and/or foot controllers. This allows you to control MIDI parameters FROM your older vintage CV gea,r or as Doepfer would prefer, from their analog A-100 synth modules. But you cannot control CV from MIDI using the Drehbank, it's not a MIDI to CV converter!! It is, however, a very easy to use and knobby way to get real hands-on with your MIDI gear or programs! It is used by Squarepusher"

E-MU Systems Emulator III 61-Key 16-Voice Sampler Workstation w/ Reference and Turorial Manuals

via this auction

Use this code on checkout for $30 off orders of $100 or more on Reverb, from now until December 31: MATRIX30

"This is the ultimate machine made by E-MU Systems in 1987: the legendary first stereo sampler, with clear 16 bits sounds, amazing dynamics, 16 independant audio Outs and 16 CEM resonant filters !

I bought mine at Nadine's in West Hollywood in 1989.

Writing mostly film scores, I must admit I don't use it anymore. Because of its superb dynamics and 16 audio Outs, it is better suited for Hip Hop, Rn'B & pop productions.

Non smoking home studio use only.

It comes with 2 Reference and Turorial manuals.

Needs a CD ROM player and/or SCSI HD to load external sound banks.

Very good working condition, in maintenance at the moment."

Modal ARGON8 Kickstart #2: Oscillators

video upload by Modal Electronics DACH

"In our KICKSTART series on the ARGON8 from Modal Electronics, professional musician, sound designer and synth expert Maik Schott demonstrates the numerous functions and possibilities of the wavetable synthesiser of a new generation.

In episode 2 of this video series, Maik explains the structure of the ARGON8 with its 8 voices and a total of 32 oscillators. The synth's more than 180 wavetables can not only be run through seamlessly, but can also be put through the proverbial 'wringer' in no time at all through the use of numerous oscillator and wavetable modifiers.

In addition to classic oscillator modifiers such as pulse width modulation, ring modulation and hard sync, the ARGON8 also features numerous more complex representatives at wavetable level. How these fast interventions affect the sound character of the individual waveforms is demonstrated here by Maik with some impressive sound examples."

"LE COURSIER is a dual exponential envelope generator which both have 3 different modes, a positive and inverted outputs, and a mix output.

As every Sovage Engineering module you can expect some uncommon behavior compared to your usual envelope generator.

EG I : Is a polyvalent exponential envelope generator, perfect for synth voice.
There is a twist ! In this case, it’s a second subtil attack stage that starts when your trig or gate ends its cycle ( falls at 0v), mimicking hard picking on guitar strings.
This effect reacts to the ATTACK and can be emphasized or diminished by adjusting the SUSTAIN and the RELEASE.

EG II : Is a snappy and really sharp exponential AD or ASR envelope generator that can be looped and turned into a bipolar LFO.

02:53 EG2 / AD-ASR
04:16 EG3 / LFO"
