"Ein Visionär! Eberhard Schoener hatte den ersten Moog Synthesizer mit Seriennummer 002 in Deutschland, den zuvor die Beatles auf 'Abbey Road' benutzten [siehe hier, und hier]. Ein Pionier der elektronischen Musik!

Aber der Synthesizer ist nur ein kleiner Teil seiner unglaublichen Geschichte: Förderer von Sting und The Police, Rock meets Classic u.A. mit Jon Lord, Geiger und Dirigent, Komponist von Opern und Filmmusik, und vieles mehr!"

Mixer? NoInputMixer! (first preview)

video upload by Igor Vasiliev

"No-Input Mixing is an experimental technique for creating a wide range of amazing, otherworldly electronic sounds by feeding the mixer output back to the input, thereby making a feedback loop. This application models an analog mixing console and effects rack in detail, providing the ability to make a huge number of feedback configurations with additional effects.

A little more about the No-Input Mixing technique:

Behringer Polivoks Prototype

Here's an image of the prototype in standard Behringer desktop & eurorack format.

"Two years ago Vladimir Kuzmin and Behringer entered into a collaboration to develop a new Polivoks synthesizer. Here now is the latest prototype, which is now undergoing thorough testing and hopefully the approval of Vladimir."

Two New Waveshapers - August 2023

video upload by John Schussler

"New month, new modules.

I built the Wave Animator from the kit: it's very straightforward with a small part count and easy assembly.

I most certainly did not build the Foldiplier. It's got lots of parts and does not look to me like an easy project. (Zlob's web page rates its difficulty at 3.5/5)

They're both waveshapers, but with very different approaches. The Wave Animator is based on an Ian Fritz design that produces two pulses whenever it sees an input wave. The Foldiplier is a more "standard" wavefolder/harmonics generator, with the caveat that it has a feedback mode best described as 'pissed off.'

Both are quite fun.

Hordijk Five Snippets

video upload by Todd Barton

"I've used this same patch for the previous two video explorations. I will conclude and pull this patch now and move on. These three videos are a tribute to Rob Hordijk's genius: the fact that, without changing patch cables and only adjusting knobs, I can get such diverse characters of self-playing patches! I don't find this kind of range and variety on my other synths."

Crumar Bit99 + Wersi Wersivoice

video upload by ohm_studi_ohm

"Quick demo of the Crumar BIT99 i fully serviced. In the frst part i flip through a few patches to let you hear how this one can sound, mainly for bass/lead/keyboards sounds. And in the second part I focus on pads and i run the synth through a custom built Wersi Wersivoice analog triple chorus. As you can hear i can turn the BIT99 into a great string machine and more.
Record with no other FX or treatment.
Pardon my playing, I'm better at servicing these instruments than playing them :-)"

via this auction

"Here is your chance to grab a unique combo in the form of 6 voice analog polysynth and a custom made BBD triple chorus ensemble effect.

The Crumar BIT99 was fully serviced:
- power supply electrolytic capacitors replaced
- voice board electrolytic capacitors replaced
- firmware upgraded with Tauntek one: you can now easily control and program the synth with any midi controller
- keyboard dismantled and contacts and bus bar cleaned
- meticulously calibrated
- panel board and case fully dismantled, cleaned and polished
- custom made real wood side end cheeks

It sounds, plays and looks awesome. It does has some wear and scuffs but it is in great condition.

The Wersivoice was custom built and is a great addition to any synth, analog or digital. It simply can turn anything into a great string machine, and more.
Very simple, no control: sound in sound out. There is a 3 positions switch with ON / MUTE / (true) BYPASS positions.
It runs directly from 230v.
Since it's DIY it doesn't look perfect."

Recording Live MIDI Drum parts

video upload by O.Z. Hall

"This video explores a technique that I researched this past week. Drums are my most proficient instrument, so this technique lets me record more natural "live" sounding drum parts into a DAW or Groovebox.

I'm using the Roland SPD-30 drum pads (a successor to the Octapad ). I'm not using the internal SPD-30 sounds, I'm just outputting the stream of MIDI notes.

I'm using the eMu XL-7 Command Station (groovebox) to record the MIDI notes as well as producing the sounds associated with those notes. The XL-7 is a great desktop Workstation platform. The sounds are great and there are so many hands on controls:

    16 knobs, plus volume and data encoder
    49 switches
    13 performance pads plus a ribbon controller

The rack mount successor to the XL-7 is the flagship eMu Proteus 2500."

Reon Driftbox R MIDI SN 123

via this auction

"Reon (Pre KORG) Driftbox R MIDI. Driftbox Rs are fairly common, but this one is an original MIDI version. I have not seen another on the market. I imported this from England as a NOS. MIDI connectivity and full Modular CV allows this synth so much more flexibility than a standard Driftbox R.

Handmade in a small boutique in Japan using the best of the best components. The quality of the sound from this is fantastic--definitely next-level from mass-produced synths. The rarity of the MIDI version elevates this to collectable status." MIDI RECORDER demo 1

For the first time we will show you how to create multi oscillator voice chords using the Godspeed and Furthrrrr generator, processed by dark and tape-like delay on the Ghost!"

Tiptop Audio & Buchla - Fake Delay & Bouncing Ball

video upload by Stazma

"Hello there!
Today I'll share with you a classic modular synth patch that I really enjoy using, it's also a great exercise to get a feel for how VCA's and envelopes can work together. It's actualy just one of the many ways you can patch this, wich will use any sound source (258t here) with the 281t, 257t and 292t as the main building blocks (you can of course patch this with similar modules). I like it in the Buchla contect as you can play with 292t modes and get different sounds this way.
Anyway, I hope this will be helpful. Have fun."
