Depeche Mode cover - live composing the TR808

video upload by Analogue Solutions

"Son's Uni project - all synths are vintage, already recorded using MC4 and live playing. Roland 100m (x4), Jupiter 8 and others. Last stage is to record in the TR808. This is synced using a Pro Solo with Sync24. Battles with old gear as usual - the Fill button on the TR808 is temperamental and sometimes doesn't trigger the fills."

Creating and Explaining Synth Sounds on the Roland Juno-X 🎹🎛✨

video upload by MR TUNA Music

"It's time to learn about synthesis with the Roland Juno-X. We will start on an initialized patch and use as many features and functions as we can to make new synth sounds from scratch. The Juno-X is an excellent synths for creating sounds because most of the controls are right on the surface, and it's laid out in a very user-friendly manner. I really love dialling in patches and the sound engine is very powerful"

Colossus Quartz AS250-Seq Expander w/ a Vintage RSF Kobol Expander I Synthesizer

video upload by

"Here's an AS250-Seq expander driving a vintage synth (RSF Kobol Expander I). The AS250-Seq fits seamlessly into your analogue synth studio and works well with most vintage and current analogue synthesizers that accept CV control.


What is Colossus Quartz?

Tom Carpenter is excited to introduce Colossus Quartz, an exciting new range of add-on synth expanders, part of the Colossus range.

Colossus Quartz is the Colossus Slim split into quarters. This allows you to build the whole system one quarter at a time, spreading the cost, or, to just have single sections to use as expanders alongside your existing modular synthesizers.

Several benefits:

It enables you to buy one quarter at a time, so you can spread the cost eventually building up a complete Colossus System.

They can be used as expanders for Colossus.

And they can be used as expanders and used with other modular set-ups (Eurorack, 5U, etc).

Each quarter has a specific range of general features:

AS250-VCO This has a bank of 12 vernier VCOs, plus 2 Noise Generators, Random Voltage, Sample and Hold, Matrix Panel.

AS250-Mod This features 4 VCAs, 4 Envelopes, 2 LFOs, LCD Dual Channel Oscilloscope (can be upgraded to single channel CRT), Touch Keyboard / Sequencer.

AS250-VCF This has 8 Filters (4x SEM type, 4x Moog type), 8 VCAs, 2 real Spring Reverbs, 2 Ring Mods, 2 Slew Generators, Matrix Panel.

AS250-Seq This features a 64-step analogue sequencer, 4 Moving Coil Meters, Stereo Mixer, 2 Joysticks, 2 Multiples, 2 Sub-mixers.

All systems feature a full set of 3.5mm jack sockets for patching.

All the voice and modulation circuits are of course 100% analogue. We purposely steered away from digital, it doesn’t even have MIDI or USB (there are plenty of MIDI converter boxes out there should you need that facility). There are of course digital elements to the sequencer control - that is unavoidable - even classic analogue sequencers like the ARP sequencer used digital logic chips. In fact the EMS Synthi 100 features a digital sequencer.

Colossus is large scale, featuring large knobs that control metal shaft potentiometers. VCOs have multi-turn verniers. The two enormous pin matrix panels dominate the panels - these are incredibly expensive Swiss-made broadcast-quality signal routers.

There are two spring reverbs, touch keyboard, step sequencer, moving coil meters, joysticks and so much more. An immense expanse of jack sockets for additional patching within or without the system.

There are no gimmicks - this is pure synthesiser. A huge sound enclosed in a solid metal case wrapped in wood. No expense has been spared to bring this incredible machine to life.

Synthesisers like this only come around once in a decade, or possibly a generation."

(Synth sounds) Why you should never sell your @Sequential Prophet Rev 2 (Famous sounds)

"Showing why the Rev 2 is so versatile.. Almost all of these sounds are from 'Raheem Hosein' (Isolate) famous sound pack his sounds are great! Check it out. A few are my own including 'Born Slippy'.. The REV 2 is the best sequential for all around sound design in my opinion."

"Thanks for watching!
Took a month off from making YouTube videos, and moved into a new space in Brooklyn, from where you'll see a lot more content coming soon. I have some cool videos planned for the summer, but instead of having a strict upload schedule, like I had for the past two years, I'll just focus on making good content, and release videos on a rolling basis, and not be bound to a specific deadline. Hopefully, I'll average a video per week, but some videos may take longer to plan/produce, so just letting y'all know."

Deckard's Dream Fifty Patches

video upload by riotbell

"This is a demonstration of a patch set that I recently finished for the Deckard's Dream. I'm working on getting it uploaded for free download if anyone is interested.

Paul Schilling's original patch set is simply a master class, and arguably one of the best collection of presets I've ever encountered. Just did my best to expand on some of those ideas and explore the synth in a slightly different way.

Lots of spacey pads and mournful leads on tap. Not much in the way of bass or more traditional sounds.

As a whole, the Deckard's Dream seems to really excel at layered, nuanced, often delicate patches. It's certainly not as 'massive' as people seem to presume (or at least presume the CS-80 was). It produces some wonderful flute and woodwind sounds as well.

I shot this all in one take, and apologize for some of the Linnstrument noodling, there are definitely a few flubs and some shoddy playing scattered about. My apologies for that.

I gave most of these patches spacey sci-fi Blade Runner inspired names. Which I hope isn't too corny. Just kind of whatever popped into my head. Likewise, please forgive the top of my head from floating in and out of the frame at times. Making these videos has really given me an appreciation for all the little production issues you run into when creating Youtube content.

Hopefully the leveling is decent enough. I've noticed that Youtube compression really shaves off a lot of the high end sparkle that VCO analog synths really excel at. This synth sounds absolutely lovely in person.

Varying amounts of reverb provided by the Oto Bam.

Thanks for listening."
