video upload by Marshal Arnold

"In today's video, we're going to take an exciting journey through the beautiful sonic landscapes crafted on the groundbreaking Expressive E Osmose. Known for its innovative Augmented Keyboard Action, this keyboard offers a unique expressive potential unlike anything else.

In this demo, we will delve into a curated collection of a few of the factory preset patches. We'll explore ethereal pads, robust basses, razor-sharp leads, and mystical soundscapes that truly highlight the power of the Osmose's expressive engine.

"This meticulously refurbished Linndrum is on hold for our customer but we have another we can prepare if you can be very patient. We took this video just to demonstrate the sounds onboard this particular unit as they’re different from the original factory sounds. This one was modified so it could play longer samples from bigger eprom chips. See our Instagram (tonetweakers) for more."

Eurorack Basic Walk Through - A Simple Guide To Understanding Modular Synthesis

video upload by JML

Interesting note at 9:45.

"A quick surface look at the world of modular Eurorack synthesis featuring my own 432HP skiff and how I use it. This is not a tutorial on how to use each module as much as it is a look at some of the very best modular has to offer (from a musical standpoint). Again, I am not a noise maker as much as I am a traditional musician and my rig is built to be played like a traditional keyboard like synthesizer, much less a "beep bop boop bop" randomized noise machine. The beautiful part about modular synthesis is everyone has different taste; this is my humble take on the fascinating and quite addictive world of "Euro-crack."

1970's ARP Demo featuring Tom Piggott & Conversations with Tom Piggott & Greg Phillinganes

video upload by Alan R. Pearlman Foundation

"PLEASE NOTE: The beginning of the video is glitchy... both the sound and video will resolve at between 1:30 and 2:07.

Originally aired on WOVB-TV, in association with The Ohio University Telecommunications Center, this is one of several UMATIC demo tapes found in a box when d'ARP (Dina Pearlman-Ifil, Alan Pearlman's daughter) was going through her father's effects.

Tom Piggott was one of several educators that worked at ARP Instruments in the 1970s. He worked closely with Al, helping write the classic: 'Learning Music with Synthesizers' David Friend, Alan R. Pearlman, Thomas D. Piggott)."

"This is a collection of tests done with the first revision of Cadence.
Cadence is a square wave generator that can be used in several different ways.

00:00 - Standalone - drone synth-CV input to filter cutoff.
00:30 - External Input - Using and dividing an external oscillator.
03:40 - Gate generator - Using Cadence's oscillators to trigger drum hits, gate an envelope and clock the Turing machine.
05:08 - Standalone - Syncing the SQ1 to oscillator B and modulating the filter with the SQ1.
06:09 - External input sync - Using an external gate to cascade sync oscillators.
08:19 - External gate driving Cadence's rhythm."

Free the Tone Future Factory sweetens the Cat

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Four short noodles with the Behringer Cat and a Free the Tone Future Factory FF-1Y stereo delay. The delay cost almost exactly twice as much as the (recently discounted) Cat but it certainly makes the Cat twice as sweet. In fact I couldn't play anything mean and dirty through the FF-1Y, it just coats everything in beauty.

Two things really struck me with the FF, first its seemingly effortless deep stereo field, and second, the rich reverb-like atmosphere. It makes the raw little 2-note CAT sound like a far more complex poly. The sounds here from the FF are modified presets. There's absolutely no other effects or processing applied. If anyone wants to hear more I'll do a deep dive into the FF. For now it's my favorite delay.

Casio CZ-5000 Phase Distortion Synthesizer SN 305151

via this auction

Additional SYNTH CITY Listings

"Digital synthesizer based on Phase Distortion Synthesis, kind of similar the DX-7 FM Synthesis in terms of sound. Its a 16 voice synth that can be split into 2 parts, plus an 8 track sequencer. The voice structure is 2 oscillators, with a variety of standard and unusual waveforms including resonant waves that make up for the lack of filter. The waveforms get modulated by the 8 stage envelope generator (of which there are 3 for the pitch, waveform, and VCA) to create timbral changes. In addition to that there is a ring modulator, noise source, and chorus."

"This synth is fully calibrated, completely working and has the following upgrades:

- recapped PSU

- multi-turn trimpots on voice cards for stability

- Pratt-Read keybed straightened, re-bushed and cleaned

At this point, there are no scratchy pots or dirty contacts, but as it is 40+ years old, there are no guarantees in that department."

Oberheim Xpander 6-Voice Desktop Synth Module SN G50435

via this auction

"This is an Oberheim Xpander XP-1 in excellent condition. I purchased this Xpander in 1996 from the website of a used gear dealer in Connecticut; their listing stated that the unit had previously belonged to David Bowie's keyboard player, which I assumed meant Mike Garson (but I've never been able to substantiate this). The unit was in remarkably great condition upon receipt and it has remained that way since. I have never gigged with it; rather it has stayed in my non-smoking, temperature-controlled office/studio the entire time, mostly under a custom-fitted cover as I just haven't had the use for its extensive capabilities that I'd thought I would. So I've decided it's time to put it into someone else's hands who I hope will harness its potential and make some killer music.
