'Sound Bites' - Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4 Desktop polyphonic analogue synth

video upload by DreamsOfWires

"Some sounds from the @SequentialLLC Circuits Prophet 5 Rev4, all sound patches are my own which I made from scratch, and no I don't share/sell presets. More P5 vids in the future.
The Prophet 5 was one of a couple of synths I wanted for more than 20 years, but it was always out of my reach financially. I'm glad Dave Smith decided to re-release it, along with a module version, both for much less than the cost of an original/vintage example nowadays. Nice to have the synth used by so many artists I've enjoyed over the years, John Carpenter, Skinny Puppy, Kraftwerk, Numan, Depeche Mode, Japan and so many other synth pop acts from my youth.
Accompanying footage is from a tour I did of the USA in 2017 whilst playing guitar for a band - I started making videos here covering the stretches chronologically, but never finished them, so here's some more of the last leg of the journey... and perhaps more to come.
My music is available here:"

The ADSR - Why do you need one? Understanding ADSR Envelopes, their behaviour and uses in Eurorack

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"There are many forms of envelope generator, and simpler forms of EG are popular nowadays, for convenience and space-saving, but is the good old Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release or ADSR envelope still worth having? All forms of EG have their pros and cons, so here we'll take a look at how the ADSR works, and some examples of why you might want at least one in your Eurorack case. The focus here is on usage with a keyboard, as this is where a full envelope really shines, since it can also do the same job as simpler forms, such as AD, AR, etc.
The DH-ADSR featured in this video is an expanded version of a single envelope from the Contour Generators module, and so it is also based on the classic all-analogue Minimoog EG section, and shares it's characteristic behaviour. It adds a separate control for Decay and Release, along with an inverted output, with two voltage ranges set by an internal jumper. It also has a 'Slow' mode, for very long envelope times, and a looping/repeating re-trigger function, meaning that it can be used as an LFO, with custom rise, hold, and fall times, or as a delayed envelope for use in conjunction with another EG in order to create complex, evolving envelopes.
See our User Guide video for more about this module:

The AJH SYNTH Eurorack range consists of high-end modules, all hand-made in the UK, most of which are based on classic, vintage designs, authentically recreating the circuitry of much sought-after analogue instruments and technologies of the past, whilst greatly expanding them, and bringing them to modern Eurorack levels of convenience, limitless flexibility, and reliability.

Check out the AJH Synth playlists for module 'User Guides', and 'Patch of The Week' videos, which will be either performances or 'how to' guides, detailing functions/methods, and a range of sounds, some familiar, some less so, containing a patch sheet at the end to show you how to construct it for yourself.

Groove Synthesis 3rd Wave w/ Original Box & Manual

via this auction

"It's a recent serial number of over 170 . This is important because there was a USB controller chip issue on units prior to serial 120. This is not affected.

Unit has not been removed from plastic. The safety film is still on the display. The plastic wrap was pierced to plug in the AC power cord to take the photos showing it powered on, for buyer confidence. Of course being that it was assembled in January of 2023 (this month), the factory warranty will be in effect. Spiral bound manual (which can lay flat) is still sealed."

The bottom part is a replica of the original MK1 output amps and reverb driver circuits.

Cheap Instruo

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"No, cheap isn't the right word. What I mean is, you don't need tons of currency to build yourself a true Instruo rig with more modules than you can carry, including modules you can't buy anymore.

What I mean is, they're free and what you need is a cheap PC or Mac. If you can read this, you probably have one. I always felt a bit lost in VCV, and it often makes me realize how much I've spent on real modules where the only difference is 'no latency' and 'unlimited processing power'. Did I forget 'analog'? No, I did not. VCV does not sound any less. The Pro version is cheap. The free version is a bargain."
