Moog Matriarch: First Sonic Impressions (The First 8 Minutes out of the box!)

Published on Sep 17, 2019 Getsemani Music

"We just took delivery of our new Moog Matriarch. We set it right up and spent a couple of minutes turning knobs until we had a satisfactory sound to start experimenting. What this video shows is the first 8 minutes of trying it out. No manual, no studying, no patch work (yet)... just playing around. Conclusion: We love it, and now to start digging deeper!"

Some synthesizers working together

"Just installed the Kiwisix on my Polysix for the added sequencer. Like it so far, though learning the new menu layout takes some time. The sequencer operates almost like the Jx-3p's, which I love since it can be advanced with drum triggers."

Jamming with Polyend Preset Eurorack module

Published on Sep 17, 2019 Polyend

"The Preset adds an entirely new layer of replicability in your modular system, which is especially useful for live musicians. Program the notes sequences using one of the 32 build-in musical scales. Record the automation using the encoders. Or maybe copy an existing LFO or envelope from another module using the CV input. These all can be later recalled out of one of the 9 Preset CV outputs. You could build an entire performance with the use of the Preset module. Each recording of voltage can be up to 30 seconds in length. Worth mentioning is that everything you do in the Preset is being autosaved.
Thatʼs already a lot of functionality, right? But it's just the beginning."

Vintage CLEF Master Rhythm Computer Band-box

"Very rare vintage analogue drum machine with auto accompaniment.

Not working as it should the drum machine section seems to work and is programmable as it should be but only sometimes. Sometimes when you turn it on it doesn't work and needs to be turned on again. The auto accompaniment side doesn't seem to function at all."

Kawai SX-210 Teisco SYN-42 Micro Computer Board Repair Kit

via this auction

"This is a set of all the components you will ever need to repair the Kawai (or Teisco) SX-210 micro computer board (SYN-42) known for the ni-cd battery leakage problem. I had a customer that brought me 9 (nine) units to repair, all with the same problem.

Beside repairing the board, you will be able to change for a stable lithium battery (included, as well as the components and instructions to do it). I will provide you a clean PDF service manual and some extra instructions (from advice on how to remove corroded components to reloading the factory presets, etc.). I will also provide you the banks'presets in .wav format and the instructions manual. This is not a task for beginners, you have to be able to solder and desolder 2 faces PCBs. But you can take this kit to a local repair shop, and they will gladly do the job. The time consuming part is sourcing these components. I am always available to help fellow synth lovers. Try me.

The KIT contains all the parts next to the battery and some others that I used in some moment to repair the boards:

1 CPU Intel P8031 (this one is far from the battery, but I had to change it in some boards due to short circuits)
1 2764 Programmed EPROM with the last known firmware
2 ULN2003A darlington transistor array
1 SN74LS374N
1 µPD8253C NEC programmable interval timer
1 TC5517 Toshiba 2K RAM (your unit may come with a MSM5128 - they work the same)
2 transistors 2SA564
2 transistors 2SC536
1 zener diode 5.2V (WZ-052)
1 diode 1S2473
1 diode 1S1555 (to adapt the new lithium battery)
1 CR2032 lithium battery with soldering tags
2 resistor network 3,3KΩ x 8
2 2,2KΩ 1/4W resistor
7 3,3KΩ 1/4W resistor
6 electrolytic capacitors 10µF 16V
3 electrolytic capacitors 0.22µF 16V
1 electrolytic capacitor 47µF 16V
1 electrolytic capacitor 100µF 25V
all the integrated circuits come with a good quality machined DIL socket.

All the components are tested prior to shipping including the ESR of the capacitors."
