11. lel psr and radel electronic tabla
#onedrumcomputeraday is having a look at the worst digital drum machine ever (?) the russian lel psr in a double feature with the odd indian radel electronic tabla - also featured in a little deconstruction of the arctic sunrise song "forever yours".

BME-700 // MAX PHATT // sequenced // Miniature 23


Published on Feb 7, 2015 LESINDES

"the BME-700 from its PHATT side -- triggered with a Nord G2 step sequencer. Kenton Midi translated it into CV/gate.
to satisfy the urge for phatt material asap I used looped archive footage. And the publishing miniature 22 (another Minitaur clip) has been postponed for the moment."

BME-700 // FATTEST SYNTH ON EARTH


Published on Feb 6, 2015

"as far what I have heard and played I'd consider this the fattest synth on earth. please bear in mind that the synth was directly plugged into the sound card; no tubes, sutarizers, distorsion, compressors limiters or other stuff is involved or applied later to the track of the one-VCO-machine!!!
the keyboard is somehow awkward though ;-)"

Baumann BME-700 - Ultra Rare German Synthesizer from 1976

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.

via this auction

This is the only BMD-700 I have ever seen for sale. There was a general post on the BME-700 back in 2006 here, and there was actually a software emulation of the BME-700 posted here. There is only one other BME post which features the Rattlesnake here.

This is as rare as it gets.

Nick Copeland Bristol Synthesizers Emulations on Android & Linux

Linux apps on SourceForge here [you might remember the page form this 2007 post]. The following are available on the Android Market

"muSonic Sonic-V

This is an emulator of the muSonic 5, a synthesizer originally designed by one of the Moog engineers Gene Zumchek (possibly the real father of modern synths), he proposed then eventually designed and built the prototype Mini Moog, the first fixed configuration portable monophonic. After leaving Moog he created the muSonic who themselves eventually bought the bankrupt remains of Moog and released this synth with a few changes as the Moog Sonic-6. The dual LFO configuration is very rich and there are lots of modulation possibilities as well as direct mix and in this emulator some mild stereo reverb.

Interface zooming can be done either with the trackball (Nexus/HTC have them) or enable multitouch via the menu then tap the screen with two fingers at the same time - this will zoom the interface in/out. If you tap with two fingers but keep them held you can move the screen around. This kind of helps out with the dense graphics.

Patches are saved on the SD card along with factory sounds, there is an export and import option to exchange patches.

The emulator will, per default, attempt to run with a set of options that will give reasonable quality and the lowest possible latency/lag. The quality of the audio can be tuned with the menu options however the lowest possible latency for pretty much all Android devices is currently 42ms, on my HTC Desire it is 70ms. If you understand what this means then the value might seem quite high but the app is still a lot of fun.

"Classic ARP Axxe Synthesizer Emulator

The is an emulation of the ARP Axxe synthesiser, single oscillator, noise, mixer, filter and envelope generator fully emulated in software with modulation. The app supports pressure sensitive touch screens, X/Y accelerometer for pitch and mod wheel, multitouch and zooming interface facilities. The original was a monophonic instrument however the emulator can operate as a polyphonic (duophonic) synth via multitouch when it is enabled. The interface has options for fat-finger, analogue filters and rich oscillators however these will consume extra CPU cycles. The interface also has a full piano keyboard setting.

Tested on HTC Desire/2.2, Emulator hires and lowres. The Axxe is one of a family of emulators."

"Augur-52 Synth

This version of the bristol augur synthesizer is in stereo with a flanger effect to widen out the sound,

This is an emulator of a 80s classic analogue poly synth, the emulator is just dual voice for multitouch. It has dual oscillator, noise, lfo, mixer, filter and a pair of envelope generators. The app supports pressure sensitive touch screens, X/Y accelerometer for pitch and mod wheel, multitouch and zooming interface facilities. The interface has options for fat-finger, analogue filters and rich oscillators however these will consume extra CPU cycles. The interface also has a full piano keyboard setting.
There is an emulator 'Unison' switch which will play both voices on a single note to pad out the sound.

Interface zooming can be done either with the trackball (Nexus/HTC have them) or enable multitouch via the menu then tap the screen with two fingers at the same time - this will zoom the interface in/out.

"BME-700 Synthesizer

The is an emulation of an esoteric German synth known as the BME 700, very few in existence and using a unique dual filter design, one tracking the envelope and one resonating at a fixed frequency. The envelopes are also interesting, there are two A/R or A/S/R that can be mixed to create ADSR and other ingenious combinations.

The app supports pressure sensitive touch screens, X/Y accelerometer for pitch and mod wheel, multitouch and zooming interface facilities. The original was a monophonic instrument however the emulator can operate as a polyphonic (duophonic) synth via multitouch when it is enabled.

BME PM10 - Modularsystem

Samples on Museum BME
(Googlish here)

"These tape recordings, and this is a fortunate circumstance arose only with the BME system, a Roland CSQ-100 (sequencer) and a Roland Space Echo three hundred and first. I have to digitize the old cassette aware nothing has changed"

Synthorama - Drum Machine Room


click here for images of the drum machine room at the Synthorama synthesizer museum in Luterbach Switzerland. Click on the synthorama label below to see all posts in this set. An EMS Hi-Fli is also in this set.

Update via Martin: "Around 60 Rhythm Machines are not placed and also all 90 Electro-Harmonix Effects are stored. You can see that the Synthorama has really a big space problem :-)

BME 700

Title link takes you to a Bluesynths.com article on the BME 700. Note that Bluesynths switched to a member only site. I hate when sites do that. But sign up isn't too difficult. You just enter an alias you want to use, a valid email address and a password. You get a link sent to the email address you provided. Click on the link and your account is activated. Log in and you can view the article. Pain? Yes, but that's their price I guess. There are more shots of the BME 700, an mp3 and a wmv in the article. This synth sounds good.



Features
1 VCO with variable waveform (starting at triangle - to saw - to pulse). Modulation possibilities.
Noise
2 LFOs
2 envelopes: each switchable AR-ASR
12 dB LP filter + resonance
