ASID player using real C64 (Ode to 64 by SΓΈren Lund) Station64

video upload by Avrilcadabra

"This is not my music. Though this video needs to be on the internet.

lot of this stuff is so niche or lost it just doesn't exist on youtube. it's not really what I usually do on this channel but if not me who else is going to do it.

So what's going on here. The Software on the Laptop is from Elektron's download page for the SID station. it is an ASID player. Basically you load a sid file into it and it sends that data via midi cables (not midi protocol)

so the Sidstation..Midibox sid. (I think Hardsid) can support ASID. probably others. DJ Indikator wanted a way for a real commodore 64 to be compatible with ASID so in recent years they made Station64 which is a full midi native c64 software but it amazing supports ASID.

The Elektron software doesn't know what it is sending to. So the c64 is playing it on its 6581r4ar into my mixer. into the little M8 tracker which is being an audio interface for my phone so this video has direct audio.

I was so happy to get this working. had to share. Also more people that hear Ode to 64 the better."

"The bad: does not include midi

The good: the prior seller told me, after I purchased it, who it belonged to (his father) and on which album it was featured on. It blew my mind, that is the only reason I would like to keep it. But, it doesn’t warrant it, for me, unfortunately.

While I can’t prove the prior persons claim, it did arrive to me postmarked where this artist was stated, on google, at that time to be residing. That and the fact that the seller only told me after buying it, made the claim more reliable.

Upon purchase I will disclose this info with you"

Programming the Roland SH-1000 - You Won't Believe What You Find!

video upload by Andy Whitmore

"Roland SH-1000 - Programming & the ten classic factory patches

The Roland SH-1000, introduced in 1973, was the first compact synthesizer produced in Japan, and the first synthesizer produced by Roland.It resembles a home organ more than a commercial synth, with coloured tabs labelled with descriptions of its presets and of the "footage" of the divide-down oscillator system used in its manually editable synthesizer section. It produced electronic sounds that many professional musicians sought after whilst being easier to obtain and transport than its Western equivalents.

The synthesizer has 10 simple preset voices combined with a manually editable section which can be manually tweaked around to create new interesting sounds. No user program memory is available. Its effects include white noise generator, portamento, octave transposition, two low frequency oscillators and a random note generator.

Even with a single oscillator, it sounds like there are several thanks to the 8 sub-osc keys. The ninth is the (white or pink) noise.

The SH-1000 is a monophonic analog synth with a single oscillator feeding a lowpass filter, an ADSR envelope, and two LFOs. It features 10 Preset sounds, but they are pretty weak. Fortunately you can create your own sounds for some really great mono-synth bass, lead, percussion and FX sounds. Basic square, ramp and pulse-width waveforms are available from the oscillator and the LFOs have sine, square and sample+hold. It has a terrific ‘Growl’ and ‘Wow’ effect for a pretty scary analog sound. It also features white noise, pink noise, portamento, octave transposition and a Random Note Generator. Although there is no user memory, unique sounds can still be quickly recreated or discovered thanks to its simple interface."

Yamaha GS2 Synthesizer - One of the First FM synths

video upload by Blake Foster

"This is a Demo of the Yamaha GS2; One of yamaha's first FM synthesizers alongside the GS1. Before the DX7, there was this; A 4-Operator FM synth featuring a chorus, vibrato, Ensemble and tremolo effects. The GS2 also featured velocity and a weighted wooden keybed which feels amazing. Not sure how many were made but they're very rare and there's not many videos online about them. This demo is a raw video of me demonstrating some unique sounds of the GS2."

"starts with white nose as the sound source. direct out with some reverb.
0:52 two note sequence on the tip top/buchla 258t oscillator.
the two note sequence is clocked x8 so it changes every 8 steps on the 1050.
2:10 I then add a second oscillator getting a different sequencer into the second spectral input, so some 1050 steps are one oscillator and some are another. and i Switch to an LPG routing with more reverb and delay.

'Old School Jam' All-modular, Step Sequencer, Bucket Brigade Delay, Eurorack FX, and no quantiser!

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Un-quantised, old-school sequencer fun: Inspired by early sequenced electronica such as Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, much of whose music used a Moog 960 sequencer, which didn't have quantising features, and were sometimes difficult to tune accurately or reliably. Such as the track 'Phaedra' by Tangerine Dream, during which the Moog performing the opening pattern had to be re-tuned during the actual recording, and it was left on the album! Yet it sounds great, it's imperfect tuning adds so much to the atmosphere of the music, irrespective if it was deliberate or a 'happy accident'.

Here I use an un-quantised sequencer, in fact an Erica Synths Sequential Switch, with it's CV expander that turns it into a great little 8-step sequencer. I also run it through the AJH Synth CV Mix, to offset the CV going to the oscillator, allowing me to push the output into the negative CV range. I then send this shifted signal to the VCO's frequency modulation input instead of the 1V/Oct... just to make it more difficult to tune! Seriously though, this was a fun experiment, and taking off the digital stabilisers (or quantisers) once in a while is highly recommended, and a good learning experience. This was an all-modular session - no external FX or mixing, just Eurorack modules for all functions.

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.

Meet us and the modules in person this year at Superbooth 23, Berlin, on May 11th to 13th.

Dustrial πŸ—️ (Korg Drumlogue) - Industrial jam using only the Drumlogue hybrid drum machine

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"For this second jam, I wanted to use the Drumlogue alone to see what I can come up with!
So I used its 4 analog tracks (Kick, Snare, 2 Toms), its digital drum tracks (only stock samples here) and its included digital VPM (Variable Phase Modulation) synth.

The jam starts with the MULTI engine (VPM) playing a sequence where nearly each step holds automated parameters πŸ˜„ Then the Bass Drum kicks in (the decay is long enough for it to act as the bass part too).
The kick is also ducking the other tracks thanks to the sidechain feature of the Drumlogue's master compressor. Then the rest of the track is pure jamming adding/muting the other tracks, and having fun with the LOOP mode πŸ˜…"

I love this song so much I wondered what I could do with just
using the Cherry Audio Mercury 6 for all tracks except for drums.
End result is a bit muddy but it was so fun to do I had to share it!
I used the RVK-808 for the drums which I made my own drum pattern.

MiMa's cover of Airwolf Theme (extended mix)

video upload by mima85

"Here's my cover of the theme of the famous 80ies TV series Airwolf. I choose to cover the extended version, as I found it more interesting. No sequencing used, all played by hand (even bass and arpeggio parts) expect the rythm which I sequenced into my DAW. I also added a personal touch in the central part, where I put a melody (played on the Yamaha DX-7) that is absent in the original. Every time I listened to that section of the song I heard that melody in my head, so I decided to put it in my cover.

Like with the others of my last videos, this is not really a live show, I reconstructed the entire song from scratch part by part, then I filmed myself playing them, this time even from various angles. The audio is all from the rebuilt song, not from the filmed parts.

By the way, three of the four instruments I used this year turn 40, which are the Oberheim OB-8, the Roland Jupiter 6 and the Yamaha DX-7. All of them are from 1983, so this video can be meant as a way to celebrate them :-)"
