"Modular session, went a little quicker than my test run. I guess I was focusing more and made fewer errors, so without trying I shaved-off a whole minute. :-P"

Rhodes Chroma Expander SN 16330003

via this auction

"The Expander is a Rhodes Chroma in module format. About 150 were made. This is #3.

It has been fully serviced and upgraded by Randel Osborne who has restored many Chromas and also builds the Enabler controller [see this video].

- installation of the switching power supply (by Luca Sasdelli)

- installation of the CPU Plus (CC+) control board (MIDI upgrade with breakout cable)

- replacement of electrolytic capacitors and addition of bypass capacitors in sample/hold section of all voice cards

- refinishing of all woodwork

- complete synth testing, adjustment, cleaning

Extreme rarity, top-level restoration and essential upgrades make this Expander a very special instrument and high-value investment. It's the rarest version of ARP's most powerful synth, in perfect working condition. Amazing by itself or interfaced with another Chroma."

MiniMod Keyz User Guide - Basics: Patching the modules together, keyboard functions, LFO modulation

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"First part of our User Guide for the MiniMod Keyz - A full Minimoog-based analogue Eurorack modular synth and Cre8audio NiftyKeyz package available from AJH Synth. This part covers the basics for someone who may be new to the world of modular - how to patch the modules together to produce a typical monosynth sound, and the most important functions of the keyboard you'll need to understand so that you can start your musical journey. Later videos will go into more details about the modules and some of the other controller features.

This is a complete ready-to-go Eurorack synthesizer system, with additional Moog CP-3-style mixer, dual sub-bass/sub-octave generator, 3 input analog ring modulator based on the EMS Synthi/VCS3, voltage-controlled high pass filter, and a powerful multi-function, clockable LFO complete with random modes. Couple these high-end, vintage-voiced, and generously-featured modules with the extensive capabilities of the Nifty Keyz, and you've got one powerful monosynth."

Johnny Perkons joins the Marines

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The Perkons drum machine doesn't always have to pound out crazed gabber or hard techno. This piece started as an exercise to create a classic retro drum machine kit: bass drum, low tom, crispy snare and cymbal. Then I wanted to make a single pattern that could sustain itself for several minutes without sounding like a simple loop. So the tracks are running at different speeds, use ratchets, parameter locking, a little LFO and the "odds" feature where steps only sound every 2, 4 or 8 bars. Add to that a little live muting, one kit change, and some samples.
The movie clips and samples are all from the 1957 movie 'The D.I.'
Routing setup is: Voice 1 bass drum straight out to the DAW. Voice 2 low tom out to the Canyon delay then to the DAW. Voices 3 snare and voice 4 cymbal to the main out and into the Nemesis delay for a tiny touch of stereo delay. There is no sound processing in the DAW.
As usual it was very tempting to do further processing and add in some extra music but I thought it best to leave this as 'pure Perkons'. The samples are there because no one can listen to a three minute drum solo and remain sane.

Armon ArmonConcert Analog String Synth

via this auction

"Rare italian 'orchestral' polyphonic synthesizer.
Like others in the same kind (Crumar Orchestrator, Siel Orchestra, Farfisa Synthorchestra etc) it combines in one instrument 4 different sections: strings / reeds / piano / brass each with several choice of instruments.
You can combine different sections by pushing 2 or more sections buttons.
Strings sound are really nice and benefit from a BBD triple chorus ensemble effect and a attack / sustain enveloppe.
It also has a nice Brass sound with a low pass filter with control over the attack of the filter (that can be very long) and a vibrato with adjustable speed.

The instrument was serviced and is in fully working condition. Most of the electrolytic caps were replaced.
Also a direct dry string sound output was fitted where the headphone was connected. Thus you can process the dry sound of the string alongside the sound affected by the built in ensemble fx.
The only minor isssue is the built in speakers were removed. But considering the quality of the system it didn't do justice to the quality of the instrument sound and it's not a big lost."

"Classic and legendary Prophet VS rack in full working condition with no operational issues... with original manual and printed schematics. So many synths and synth designers have taken bits and pieces from this design but nothing beats the original.. nothing sounds as bold and awesome as the original. The sonic possibilities are endless and the filters are classic Sequential."

2023/06 - Pioneer Toraiz AS-1 Midicontroller for realtime editing

video upload by Stereoping

"Demo of the Synth Controller Edition "AS1" for the Pioneer Toraiz AS-1. Finally you have quick realtime access to all parameters of synth engine, arpeggiator and FX section. The demo shows editing on all three color layers (red: Oscillators, green: Filter & Envelopes, blue: LFO and FX) with and without background rhythms. Most probably this video only makes sense if you are already familiar with the AS-1 and want to see the concept and behaviour of the Controller. The AS-1 behaves very well when being edited remotely, no hanging notes, no lags, only Chorus rate causes some jittering. For details you can check out the manual's addendum PDF in the Stereoping Shop's Synth Controller Downloads section.0:33 red layer - editing oscillators with their modulation routing switches. Explaing how to access SHIFT parameters. Playing with polymod of OSC2 on OSC1. Switching to LFO-PWM3:16 - taking a look on SLOP3:49 green layer - playing with filters and envelopes, LFO on cutoff, Glide6:10 - exploring impact of OSC levels on self ringing VCF6:32 blue layer - realtime FX tweaking, adjusting BBD sync9:42 arpeggiator session where FL Studio sends chord into the AS-1 which are arpeggiated by the AS-1."

Soundscape #1 // OP-1 Field

video upload by Stefano Mattia

"First days with the OP-1 Field.
Having a lot of fun sampling snippets of audio back and forth and stepping out of the grid.

For this soundscape, I recorded a short loop with the new Dimension synth engine. I then stretched it with PaulXStretch in Ableton. When I was happy with the results, I recorded the stretched audio to the cassette tape on the field, which adds all that luscious noise and saturation, I copied that track to the studio tape, added the 'bass' line, which is in fact a sample of a piano note pitched way down, and a simple rhythmic element. There's a bit of mother reverb on the master track, and some limiting in post.

The b-roll comes from a walk around my house, I loved how gently the evening sun light was enfolding those leaves.


Kodamo MASK1 // Proudly Digital & Uniquely Powerful

video upload by Jorb

"After my time with it, and the sort of reflection I get to find while editing, I think the strongest appeal of this synthesizer is finding identifiably digital sounds without any of the complex workflow of FM or wavetables, with just enough options past the oscillator shapes to feel like its not a 'dishonest' approach to those sounds.

You can find characteristically digital sounds, with the rest of the architecture being familiar / subtractive and it almost feels like I cheated my way to a modern man's PPG. Delightful.

HUGE THING that ended up cut, the manual is super good, really serious shoutout. Color prints, full pages, bound nicely, the whole thing. Love it.

Also I managed to also cut any take where I mentioned Roland's draw and chop oscillator options, which could be seen as a simplified bit masking. But rest assured I made the connection , don't comment like I didn't smh please
