"The SL-1 Synthlab is a 100% true analog circuitry synthesizer with subtractive synthesis. The type of design started in the early 1970s with voltage-controlled modular systems. The use of the low pass filter on the transistor cascade means the SL-1 Synthlab sounds very similar to well-known early Moog synthesizers.

· 2 x VCO´s ( 2 waveforms – saw & pulse)
· 1 x VCF (low pass filter 24dB – Moog cascade)
· 1 x VCA
· 1 x Noise
· 1 x Ring modulator
· 1 x Sub oscillator (-2 octaves)
· 2 x LFO (various waveforms and routings)
· 2 x ENV (ADSR for the VCA and AD for the VCF)
· MIDI-CV-Interface with 2 x CV and GATE
· Audio IN
· Audio OUT

Technical specifications:
· Power Supply (18V AC 1000mA)
· Dimensions: 29,8 x 16,5 x 6 cm (L&B&H)
· Weight: 1500 g"

"Here is a magazine advertisement for the Korg VC-10 that turns words into music. The guitar tablature on the back shows (c) 1978. 8" x 10 3/4"; has been folded in half."

Oberheim TVS-1 Two Voice Synthesizer

"This unit was just completely serviced by Bell Tone Synth Works in Philadelphia. The PSU was completely rebuilt. The power connector on the rear had to be changed as finding the original power cable proved to be difficult. The unit was completely serviced and any issues found rectified. It was cleaned and is in great playing condition."

DIY Synthesizer with ESP32 (super/hyper saw, aliasing free oscillators)

video by Marcel Licence

"This video shows some impressions of using the ESP32 for a little synthesizer project.
All processing is done on one core with sampling rate of 48kHz.
I've connected a master keyboard via MIDI to a serial input.
The synth actually can play 6 voices together (also with 6 oscillators per voice in unison/detuned mode).
The oscillators are aliasing free (wave forms had been generated in advance to avoid fold back of frequencies above nyquist).
Rough ADSR for velocity and filter is implemented.
I am preparing a little arduino project for sharing. It will be available soon..."

Polymetric Acid - Volca Sample, Beats, Keys & Bass

video by ChrisLody

"This was one of those jams where I went into the studio with no ideas and little enthusiasm, but turned okay I think. I've been making a few bit of polyrhythmic and polymetric at the request of Sonicware as patterns that are going to be presets on the XFM. It's something I really enjoy exploring, especially polymetric music. I love the fact that you can combine some crazy pattern lengths but as long as there is a steady pulse it all makes sense.

In this track the Volca Sample and Keys are playing 4/4 with pattern lengths of 16 while the Beats is set to 14 step and the Bass has it's steps set to 14, 15 and 16. I like that about the Bass, it's quite a polymetric monster just on it's own, I'm not sure Korg did that with any of the other Volcas so far which is a shame I think.

This was also a chance for me to try something I rarely do on the Volcas, play the keyboards on them live. I only realised today that holding a step on the Bass is interrupted by the other layers which can be used to quite a cool effect. I managed to play a bit of a howler in the middle on the Keys tbh, but I quite like it like that :)

Mixed on the Inkel MX880E with reverb from the Zoom 1201 as is so often the case with my jams."

"Lots of modules - lots of patch cables - lots of reverb. A selection of patches from the Roland System 100 and System 100M patch books. All sounds System 700 except the piano - could not make a decent sounding one."
