Goodbye flat, dull Rhodes sound - hello Retroflyer!

The Retroflyer is an active preamp with volume, mid boost/cut and fully adjustable tremolo designed to fit perfectly into passive Mark I and II Fender Rhodes. We wrote a huge blog post about it if you want heaps of info but here are the bullet points:

High-headroom, high-detail, low-noise preamp circuit
High input impedance with full frequency and dynamic range
On board 3-position high pass filter
7db Balanced Mid Boost/Cut
Twin VCA true stereo tremolo
Custom faceplate w/ custom dual concentric knobs (both made in the USA)
High quality, name brand components throughout
Extensive power filtering, power supply included
Complete kit installs in less than 15 minutes
1 year warranty with lifetime support
Designed, tested and manufactured by Avion Studios in the USA.
This design represents hundreds of hours of work and we honestly couldn’t be happier. It frankly sounds fantastic. The bass is full, the mids are clear and the highs shine.

Northern Light Modular Animated Tricillator Model 2AT Modulated Drone Teaser

video upload by Kent

"It’s BIG! (2 panels wide, housing 3 VCOs and 8 LFOs!)

It’s feature rich! (12 VCAs, syncable & offset-capable LFOs of various waveforms, 4 optical clippers: 3 x each osc and one on Mix Out, 3 sub-oscillators, multi-waveform oscillator sync, and so much more.)

It’s the Northern Light Modular Model 2AT Animated Tricillator.
This thing is nuts but also very well thought out. The master stroke is adding their Electric Dompteur H-Series module ( )right on board. With so many modulation destinations, it makes perfect sense to add 8 syncable, freezable, offset-capable, and multi-waveform LFOs to complete the package and animate the entire show. Each LFO output also features its own attenuator, thus providing subtle movement as heard in this video.

I’m planning to do a full walkthrough of the module as soon as time allows."

Check for US availability at Noisebug.

Animated Tricillator – Model 2AT – Sifam

€ 1.800,00

Three syncable VCOs and 8 LFOs in one unit

The oscillators are built on the classic circuit used in the 80s by Roland, Sequential and others.
The new AS3340-HYP VCOs give us that silky smooth 80s feeling back again and take care of the pitch drift the classic CEM shows
It tracks fine over all 8 octaves..
All four waveform levels are CV controllable
There is a rotary switch for selecting the octaves, a 3-stage sub oscillator and a front panel jumper selectable Mod CV (0-10V) out , scalable FM and CV control and of course full PWM control , all attenuverted
The 2AT has the FM inputs normalled to the outputs of the other oscillators and the order can be changed on the back
The sync inputs can be connected with shorting bars to the adjacent mod outputs conveniently
The 3 separate oscillator outputs are mixed internally and are preset at the MIX OUT if no single out is used.
Optical clipping stages are present at OSC and MAIN stage

The left side of the module is a swarm LFO
One master frequency, set by a knob or an external input, is re-used 7 times with variations
The 8 frequencies can be offset in phase or frequency, always based on the master frequency.
It can go down to 0 Hz and freeze the levels at their present state
And every output can be adjusted directly at the output without the need for attenuators

There is also a shared pitch input with a 4 octave offset and level LED on the lower left side.
The upper left corner is the collective clipping and gain control.

US customers please check for availability at NOISEBUG

Electric Dompteur – Model hED v2 [additional posts]
€ 450,00

8 linked true zero LFOs
Sine, triangle, rising and falling ramps , square , pulsing and frozen random available

V2 offers new Midi clock sync multipliers and a MCU controlled phase/spread button

Offset in phase up to 180 degree
Offset in spread based on sub harmonics of the master frequency
Frequency range from 0 to 300 hz
8 Outputs can be adjusted from 0-10V individually
Cv controlled frequency up to 2x and down to 0hz

The h series modules require a h bracket to be mounted in a 1U space

Fragments Vol 1 - Patches 1 to 32 (of 64) - Arturia MiniFreak

video upload by GEOSynths

"Out Very Soon.
What a great little Synth this is, which packs quite a Punch! I bought initially for Live use, however after designing a few Sounds, I thought I'd do a little Bank for it of 64 Patches, here are the first 32.

Fragments Vol 1 contains 64 new Patches for both the Hardware and the Software Plug-In. In the Demo the Audio is coming from the Plug-In, not the Hardware, though there really is very little difference, if any.

There are Motion Pad's & Dynamic Strings, Thunderous Bass & Cutting Leads, Vintage Polys and Keys, creative Arps & FX,plus a whole lot more. I didn't do any Sequences, they're left blank for your own Phrases :)"

Overall in excellent condition, maintaining almost all original condition aside from a protective plexi-glass screen that has been installed in rear."

Division 6 Mattson SQ816 Analog Step Sequencer w/ Original Box

via this auction

"The sequencer for the Mattson Mini Modular is available in the Eurorack format. One 52HP panel includes all the functions of the main sequencer and the expansion module. Here are some of the sequencer's basic features:

2 rows of 8 steps, or daisy-chain them for a 16-step sequence.
A user tap-tempo mode that overrides the internal VC or external Clocks providing both timing and gate-length.
Global and Individual stage 0/+1 octave shift.
Three user-selectable gate length outputs: Short, follow (the clock duty cycle) and long.
Row 1 and/or row 3 quantized/linear output selection (1V/O format)
Various inputs and outputs for daisy-chaining multiple units.
Run-on-Gate input allows for sequencer stage advance only when a gate is applied to the input.
Ping-Pong and random modes. Switching back to Ping-Pong from Random re-enters at the same point and direction that it left at.
Manual push-button mute during forward or reverse run operations.
Standard stage advance or, Start-on Stage operation. The sequencer starts on the stage it is set to on the next valid clock cycle without having to preset it to the stage prior to the stage you want it to start on.
16 independent stage gate outputs (+5V).
Foot switch jack that parallels the panel pushbutton or, can be configured with a jumper for use with future features.
MIDI output providing note on/off, note value and octave shifts for recording the programmed events on a MIDI recorder.
USB port for updating the sequencer's firmware.
Reverse-polarity protection."

Suzuki Omnichord from 1989

video upload by Bata

Almost thought he was going to cover A-ha's Take on Me at the beginning.

"Messing around with an OM-100 Suzuki Omnichord, also called the System 100. It can do 84 different chords with 10 rhythms/accompaniment patterns and 10 different sounds for the strum plate. I really messed up the ending here forgetting that you can't play the strum plate solo without lowering the other part's volume. Special thanks to Justin for donating this instrument to my studio back when I was in high school! Apologies for the out of sync and sideways video. I will consider reuploading this or doing a better video."
