PPG 380/340b/340a Listed for $77,959.62

via this auction

"This is by far one of the rarest synthesizers ever built! only 5 left and 1 is known to be working!

has a one of a kind upgrade wich enables you to either use rhe Tapes or Waveterm A as the software loader! the Wavetetm software is the ultra rare ASK wave cutter software! included are also the original casettes, VDU, Keyboard and a one of a kind Apple II cable! if you buy it without the waveterm A, you will get a 10k discount.... it also works without the waveterm A. keep in mind i never used the tapes! no guarantees! can also allow you to connect a wave 2.0 to the 380 and trigger ut via auxillary sends!!!!

there is a high possibility that this system belonged to tangerine dream!

you will never ever have a chance to buy it again unless you decide to get it now! it works and loads all the software."

Møffenzeef Mødular SEALAND DEMO

video upload by Møffenzeef Mødular

via Bandcamp

"To celebrate the anniversary of the release of Sealand Moffenzeef Modular has produced a limited run of 10 Sealand modules each accompanied by a custom hand pressed dubplate edition of the Sealand EP.

Sealand is a Eurorack module that specializes in creating randomized percussion sounds. At the core of the module is a synthesizer whose algorithm, pitch, and timbre can be modulated by gate signals. Each time a gate signal is received at the corresponding input, the parameter is randomized. The BANG! Input is a CV input for an internal VCA. Any CV fed into this Jack will modulate the volume of Sealand. This input was meant to be used with very short gates to create percussive blips. The synthesis algorithms in Sealand are the same algorithms from our Muskrat, Shtick, and MSG product line. Throw a bunch of gate patterns at Sealand and bask in it's peculiar and unpredictable results."

Melodic Techno for Novation Peak/Summit

video upload by NatLife Sounds

"Link! =

NatLife Sounds presents you with a Melodic Techno for Novation Peak & Summit synthesizers. It is an absolute thriller bank with very thematic sounds in it.

These are the sounds of the Techno Melodic worked out to the smallest details. For this, almost all the features of the Novation Peak synthesizer, also added in the latest update of the synthesizer firmware 2.1, were used.

You will find here harmonized Leads and Basses which are just perfect for Melodic Techno music. Deep and atmospheric Pads, harsh FXs, beautiful melodic Plucks, Keys, Synth sounds and of course immersed Arpedgios.

Since modern Melodic Techno music is very closely intersected in all respects with Progressive Trance, these sounds will also be great for this style of music.

The sounds in the bank have 2 Animated buttons, which can change every preset in very different ways, for getting more incredible patches. So it means that one preset can sound like arpeggios or drum loops at the same time, and the Lead can sound like Bass just with one Animate knob. Also, every patch has a ModWheel setting, so you can fastly use it just from a box.

Soundbank contains 50 Novation Peak/Summit presets, which are:

21 Bass sounds
3 Drum Arp and FX's
7 FX's
3 Leads
7 ARP's
3 Keys
5 Synth sounds"

So High So Low by Analog Music Company on synthesizers and drum machines

video upload by Stazma

"Today I show you some cool stuff with the amazing new pedal by Analog Music Company (based in Kiev, Ukraine), the 'So High So Low'.

Have fun!

More infos on @analogmusiccompany5199 website:"

So High So Low high pass/low pass filter and preamp based on MS-20 filter and Moogerfooger preamp.


High Pass & Low Pass Filters
High Pass and Low Pass resonant filters inspired by MS-20 with separate cutoff and resonance controls. Filters are arranged in series and have controllable resonance. Past the oscillation point each filter begins to self oscillate and can be used as a CV controlled oscillator.

SHSL has a dedicated preamp section which is inspired by Moogerfooger pedals providing the beautiful colouring to the sound. The pre section can operate in array of modes from light saturation to pushing the amp into overdrive/distortion territory.

CV & EXP controls
Separate CV inputs for each filter allow to control the the pedal with the external controllers like Korg SQ-1 or Arturia devices. You can also sync it with your modular or semi modular system. Separate expression inputs for each filter allow controlling the SHSL with the expression pedal.

Runs from 9V DC (standard Boss type) power adaptor
We are doing all the voltage conversion internally. SHSL boosts the voltage to +/- 15V for the proper operation of filters and headroom.

Works with many Instruments and audio sources.
So High So Low is perfect for guitar, bass, synths, modular, drum machines, voice processing and even on a whole mix bus as a studio/mastering tool.

Introducing - Behringer BRAINS Reloaded

video upload by Behringer

"BRAINS Reloaded is a free firmware update that introduces 5 New Synth Engines to the Behringer BRAINS oscillator Module.

Engine One - BX7 is an FM synthesizer that includes 32 classic FM Synth patches. All of which are fully exchangeable with native DX7 patches that can be easily uploaded via the Behringer SynthTribe application.

Engine Two - BASSLINE delivers the iconic TD-3 sound to Eurorack. With controls giving you access to distortion, resonance, modulation, and decay; BASSLINE certainly brings a new level of acid to the modular table.

Engine Three - Wave Generator provides a plethora of waveforms with its gritty sound capable of cutting through in every modular session. Controls over waveform types, bit crusher, and sample rate gives you full control over dialling in the perfect tones for your waveform.

Engine Four - VOX is a synthesized vocal morphing sound engine giving you full control over formant shift, resonance, and vowel blends.

Engine Five - Audio Scope allows you to route any external audio signal into BRAINS V/OCT input, allowing BRAINS OLED Display to act as a handy oscilloscope to keep an eye on your waveforms.

To download BRAINS Reloaded, simply head to the software section of the link below and be sure to follow the installation instructions provided in this video:"

The MakeNoise Museum | and farewell to vactrols...

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Today I'd like to revisit the classic #makenoisemusic modules from a different perspective. TipTop Audio has been the first company to actually clarify the vactrol ban in the EU/UK and not being able to ship a 292T to the old continent. Vactrols contain cadmium which is bad for the environment and your health. Don't worry, they're fine while they're in your modules (and you can keep them), just don't eat or smoke them and don't bury your QMMG. You may wonder what vactrols are and the old MakeNoise gear was packed with them while supplies lasted. I think MakeNoise used vintage vactrols from the previous century to match the sound of the true Buchla LPG. But supplies didn't last, and even if it did, they can't ship DPO's and Optomixes to the UK/EU forever. Maybe they already can't due to the vactrol ban. So times are changing. The old continent is in the lead, but the rest of the world will eventually follow, even in countries where it's more dangeous to breathe air and bathe in a holy river. But you have to start somewhere and vactrols seemed to be a great way to start saving the planet. As for vactrols and LPG's, i am sure and confident there will be noise after the vactrol. What do you think?"

Expert Sleepers Amelia - envelope/function generator

video upload by Expert Sleepers

"'Amelia' is an envelope/function generator with an unusual ADBR (attack/decay/break/release) configuration. CV control of all envelope times and of the break level is provided. The envelope can be set to auto-trigger, turning it into a complex voltage-controlled LFO.

The shape of the attack and decay/release sections can be independently and continuously adjusted from exponential, through linear, to logarithmic.

Amelia was developed with use with sequencers particularly in mind, where often you only have a trigger output, not a gate of adjustable length. It allows you to create complex and flexible envelope shapes from that simple trigger signal that can be fully modulated under voltage control.

The module is constructed entirely from analogue parts and discrete logic. There is no microcontroller or digital-to-analogue conversion involved and therefore no quantization of voltage levels or of the response time."

TiNRS Wobbler 2 Complex LFO, Apollo View Allscillator and Prototype FX

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Finally carving out some time to play with a couple of brand new eurorack synth modules that have arrived at our doorstep!

Our friends at This is Not Rocket Science have finished their Wobbler 2, successor to their original Wobbler complex LFO, and it's a module that keeps on giving. It lets you seamlessly morph between a number of inventive waveforms, like self-phasing, twang and pendulum, and shape, attenuate and invert the result on two outputs.

And equally exciting is Apollo View Modular’s awesome Allscillator, a great sounding analog oscillator that offers a number of cool waveshapes like Shark fin and PWM Saw, and modulation options like soft sync. Best of all it's available as a DIY kit from Thonk which means with some soldering skills you can build your own!

We took the opportunity to test both modules with prototype circuits of some of our upcoming modules, a line of analogue shaping, saturation and distortion FX modules that will be available prebuilt and as DIY kits - more on that soon!

In this patch, we use our Stolperbeats drum sequencer to sync TiNRS Wobbler 2 to a septuplet shuffle. It is delivering triggers to a prototype of our drum voice on kick and snare, as well as Befaco's Burst for a sneaky delayed upbeat into a zap, all with some crunchy proto FX for good measure.

Allscillator provides the waveforms patched through This is Not Rocket Science's Switch utility. From there the audio is routed into our prototype FX, modulated by Wobbler 2's self-phasing LFO and phase shifted to produce the stereo effect. Finally, we use TiNRS' Ardabil to scale and offset CV for some extra frequency control.
