Elka Drummer One

via this auction

"Holy kraut rock preset all analogue drum machine in original unmodified condition.
All switches and controls works as should, sounds great. Tolex is in a very good condition and considering it's age, this is well kept and well cared machine.

There are a few things to mention:
cowbell (only) has noise bleed when not used.
Trafo is buzzing. Missing original plastic corners. See video.
Knowing that this is drummachine from sixties, it could benefit from recapping for sure in order to work flawlessly more decades. These are rare and this one even has multi trigger input. Switchable psu set to 220V."

"There's nothing more inspiring than sampling a great sound to get your creative juices flowing when you're in the studio. In this video, we use the new MOOD MKII to process the OP-1 Field and sample that into the Elektron Digitakt. Once we have a solid foundation, we turn to the Digitone and Syntakt to drive us home with warm and full bass. Of course, the Octatrack MKII and the Analog Heat are there to make sure we can transition and process our tasty pattern in real-time. In the end our delicious ingredients cooked up some Dub Techno, enjoy! Video Edited by Looma

WAVE KIT SA13 1980 DIY Analog Synthesizer

video upload by Time Tripper

"This is an analog synthesizer that I made when I was in high school.
At that time, it was a transition period from analog to digital, and soon the era of personal computers began. I think this was the last time I touched analog circuits.

Buchla - 223e

via this auction

"The 223e comprises two components: A 3-panel-unit tactile surface (the Multi-Dimensional Kinesthetic Input) for generating user control data, and the single-panel Tactile Input Port module, which provides edit / programming control for the tactile surface, and houses the control voltage outputs and the controls for the built-in arpeggiator.

The tactile surface features an ergonomic array of 27 velocity- and pressure-sensing keypads, fourteen of which respond to location in one or two dimensions. Pressure sensitivity ranges from feather-weight to several pounds. Arranged into multiple user-defined groups ranging in size from 1 to 25, the keypads can produce a wide array of user-programmed control voltages. The surface can be mounted in three panel spaces in a 200e-series cabinet (usually in the lowest boat, for playing convenience), or independently mounted in a 201e-3 Passive Frame.

Location, pressure, impact, and tuned voltages, as well as pulses generated by the tactile surface are presented at a total of 30 outputs on the Tactile Input Port module.

The arpeggiator features multiple patterns, internal and external clocks, and a variety of additional features. All settings, including Tactile Input keypad programming, can be saved and recalled by the Preset Manager on the 225e or 206e module."

1982 Roland Juno 6 (Serviced) SN 204915

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"By now, everyone knows the sound of the Juno-6/60. From the mixable Sawtooth and Square wave shapes on the Oscillator, all the way through to lush stereo chorus at the end of the signal chain. Junos may not be the most complex synthesizers out there but they are almost impossible to get a bad sound out of. Basses, pads, leads, arpeggios, it can do it all. This Juno 6 may not have preset recall or a DCB port like the 60, but sounds exactly the same.

This synthesizer is in great shape over all showing some average cosmetic wear. Fully restored internally, all electrolytic capacitors replaced, all contacts cleaned for smooth operation.

Serial number: 0204915"

Octave Electronics : The Cat Synthesizer

via this auction

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"Similar to the infamous ARP Odyssey, so much so that ARP sued Octave for cloning their designs in the mid 70s. The Octave Cat is in great shape overall and just gone over internally by our in-house technician. These are getting harder to find in the wild, especially in good working condition.

Repair notes: Replaced trim pots, replaced all electrolytic capacitors. Replaced almost all IC sockets. Disassembled and cleaned all controls and switches. Rebuilt power supply. Replaced ceramic capacitors in power supply and both VCOs. Repaired key memory S/H circuits. Cleaned pin headers, connectors, buss bars and key contacts. Calibrated and burned in."

I love this little magic synth/sampler insanity box, but it's time for it to move on to a new owner. I've found to be a great/easy way to find and download more scripts. Enjoy!"

"SE-3X Paraphonic Gooseneck and Magnificent 3 Chord Monte in Eb Major

A CODE8 w/CS-80 filters gets the party started with bright and bratty horns—hard—like St. Regis used to sling in the ‘80s, via our fridge-sized RA-200, periodically rotating-speaker amp.

Greg St. Regs’ immortal patch #1 on the SE-02 then pairs and nearly overtakes the initial CODE bass work.

Shimmering CODE background colors and creations abound, including (but not limited too) cagey vocodering and gorgeous collapsing strings (nearly soloed at end in the Easter Egg hangover). 'You'll see.'

My vocal-eazy leads on the SE-02 channel Keys 2 genius and my good friend (ladies & gentleman), @monteneuble !

Boomstar Brotherhood Drums (SE-80 Chapter) created vast swaths of the root percussive elements—practically all, including hi hats; claps and rims not included. Blame sound wizard & partner-in-crime Sean Charles.

Some Brian Scroggins DMX/EMU Modular magic from a fruitless EMU/Fred Z/Grass Valley adventure, many decades/lifetimes back, swings in and out—Ishtar appearance as well. And I miss you brother. Avidly.

Stereo'Jaco' bass: CODE. Always juicy it is.

Pocket 'Princey" 80’s SEM-filtered chords (Abm to AbM) bounce & thrill. Celestial celeste and ancient tech Cathedral organ offer healing & wisdom ;) with bonus happy feet pedal board dance, tracked incongruously enough with one of CODE8's “Pigalle Party” patches. "A little spritz of water, a subway station, surrounded by bistros, Pigalle ... .' I'm thinking more Josephine Baker.

Guitar samples repurposed and reworked from our Modmax and Wolftone pedal demo archive; performances courtesy of Grecco Burrato, my elusive, but nevertheless marvelous friend.

MSR needle drops responsible for wildcard tones and pulses."
