The Appendage:An analogue voltage controller for synthesizers.

video upload by Todd Murray

"This is a DIY project that was originally designed by Scott Stiles on the Electro-Music Forum. Being a DIY project means you can augment, customize and kick things up a bit. I wanted a new controller that was thin and light enough that I could bounce around on stage and give a light show, while playing.

The current light controller is activated by a 5 Volt gate signal to an Atmel microcontroller. The next revision will incorporate both Gate and CV which will not only activate the lights, but change colour depending on frequency.

You can use this simultaneously with patchable Eurorack and large format +/-15V modulars or polyphonic MIDI controlled synths using the CV to MIDI converter."

Vintage Analog Hohner Bass Synth

"Here is one of the first bass synthesizer ever made, dating from the 60s. Almost identical to the more widely know Basset, the Bass 1 is a basic but very effective little bass synth. You get a choice between a Sine and Sawtooth sound and a simple variable decay enveloppe ("Perc").

Synth was serviced: all electrolytic capacitors were replaced and a more convenient jack socket was fitted. It is in perfectly working condition. Runs either on 220/240v or 110/130v."

Insane Probability Sequencing with the Malekko Varigate 8+

video upload by Piotr Garbaczonek

"For this project, I opted to make more of a drum-based piece. I wanted to specifically use the powers of one of the most powerful modules in my system, which is located in the bottom right corner. It's known as the Malekko Varigate 8+. It is an extremely complicated gate and CV sequencer with 8 gate channels and 2 CV channels for pitch sequencing, as well as additional secret digital menu settings like probability, which is an important aspect of my patch. I set my master clock to provide a consistent beat to Varigate 8+. Then I trigger all of the different drum parts from the sampler with the Malekko's randomly produced patterns, so the patterns should not repeat very often, if at all. The fun began when I chose to use this sequencer for all of the components of the composition, allowing me to separate a signal from numerous gate outputs and CV outputs and transmit it to offer pitch and melody to the various oscillators that I used for this.
Mutable Instruments Plaits was the only one that wasn't getting pitch, as it was receiving various modulations that would make it relatively meaningless to input pitch into because the changes created by it wouldn't be as obvious and needed at the moment. Instruō Cruïnn was the single oscillator into which I fed the CV output from Malekko. It is a phase-modulated, stereo oscillator having through-zero outputs that can be stereo, summed, or separate sawtooth outputs per voice. As you change the dispersion of the voices in the module, you get that pitch diffusion effect that becomes more pronounced near the finish of the composition.
During the performance, I am continually altering the number of high frequencies fed into the VCA and pre-effects to keep the stereo feel beautiful and dynamic. Such tasks are generally carried out using my left hand. My right hand is activating all of the different parts of the piece, which aren't necessarily pre-defined because this is an improvised composition, but I have some notion of what I'm going to do before I do it. Only when I need to modify the volume of the stereo oscillator inside the VCA before the 'drop' part of the time stop and then that riser and time start sequence do I use both hands in one activity? Everything comes to a halt when I hit that yellow button because everything in this patch is clocked to a master clock, so if I make it stop, everything stops. I'm also patching something more than a minute in, and it was basically just the output of a slow LFO, which would modulate the knob that modulates the parameters together inside of the Qu-Bit Chance module, which is what I'm using to control the majority of the modulation in this patch, which is changing the fm and cv inputs on two of my oscillators. By randomizing that value, detecting rhythm fluctuations throughout the song becomes even more difficult.

The most underrated Analog Synthesizer - Oberheim Matrix-1000

video upload by RetroSound

"(c)2007-23 by RetroSound
supported by UVI:

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

I have the Oberheim Matrix-1000 analog synthesizer since the 90s. He was one of my first synths ever. It is a very powerful polyphonic analog synthesizer with a variety of options for influencing the sound. Analog sounds are a lightness but also sounds that one would rather attribute to a hybrid synthesizer.

You hear a single sound demo without additional effects. The chords are similar in order not to be distracted by playing technique and you can fully concentrate on the sound character. The sounds are all from the RetroSound Set that I programmed a few years ago. It includes 100 new sounds for the Matrix-1000 and Matrix-6/6R

00 - 39 Pad & Strings
40 - 43 Choir & Vocal
44 - 50 Brass
51 - 56 Bass
57 - 71 Lead
72 - 75 Organ
76 - 83 Acoustic
84 - 93 Effect
94 - 99 Sequence

You can load the midi file in your sequencer software, play the file and the synth received the sound data and overwrite the the first sound bank (0-99) with the new sounds.

You can buy the soundset here with paypal:"

If it's an older post it may no longer be available.  Check with the seller before buying to be safe.  MATRIXSYNTH share's what's out there.  The point of this post is the demo not the presets.  The presets are there for those interested.

ARP Solus Monophonic Analog Synthesizer with Built-in Case SN 2353329

via this auction

"1980 Arp Solus monophonic analog synthesizer in excellent condition. All sliders, keys, inputs, outputs, knobs and functions work as intended. The synth was regularly serviced and calibrated. The Arp Solus is light and built into it's own hard shell case, which makes it optimal for touring.

Only 500-600 of these were made. This one is serial# 329 (2353 is the model # followed by the 3-digit serial). This was the last monosynth that Arp produced before shutting down in the early 80s.

I'm going to say something controversial - I think the Solus is both unique from and superior to the Odyssey. It was designed with synth leads in mind - probably to appeal to touring musicians who wanted a lightweight, compact synth to put on top of their big CS80s and PolyMoogs. In my opinion, the quality of sound is where the Solus shines. The design of its filter is the result of years of learning from bugs and mishaps on the Odyssey filter. The Solus includes truly explosive FM, ring modulation, and reverse envelope capabilities in place of the Odyssey's S/H circuit. The Solus' oscillators are also variable waveforms, unlike the Odyssey's square or sawtooth waveforms. The Solus is very loud and present in a mix - perfect for bass lines and leads, whereas the Odyssey sits a bit further back in a mix."

The filter has the cut- off freq control knob.The CLEAN, REVERB, FILTER, is the respective volume. There is a master volume that controls the overall sound.The switch is an electronic switch that switches the bypass on and the effect sound. All are analogue circuits.
