via this listing

"Bonjour,

Je vends mon synthi A mk1, formes d'ondes séparées sur chaque oscillateurs, comme sur le vcs3.

Nombreux fonctionnalités ajoutées par un professionnel en Belgique, lors de la vente le synthi sera révisé par ce même professionnel, la référence mondiale pour les machines ems.

Les options prévues par ems à l'origine et rajoutées : sample and hold, slew limitersur l'attaque de l'enveloppe, carte CV gâté potabellaz et je donne un petit clavier pour le séquencer et jouer des notes.

Il a aussi un oscillateur supplémentaire avec forme d'ondes switch le, la synchronisation de tous les oscillateurs entre eux . J'ai fais mettre un joystick de mk2 pour un achat de ks et de façon à ce qu'il ne gêne pas dans la valise. Il a aussi un porte carte rajouté pour les cartes patch.

Je peux aussi envoyer des vidéos si vous êtes réellement intéressé ;)

C'est donc une formidable machine parfaitement fonctionnelle !

A un prix raisonnable ;)"

The options originally planned by ems and added: sample and hold, slew limiter on the attack of the envelope, CV card spoiled potabellaz and I give a small keyboard to sequence it and play notes.

It also has an additional oscillator with waveform switch, the synchronization of all the oscillators between them. a mk2 joystick for a ks purchase and so that it does not get in the way in the suitcase It also has a card holder added for patch cards.

I can also send videos if you like. are really interested ;)

So it's a fantastic, perfectly functional machine!

Background Modulars No.5 - Buchla 100 and EMS VCS3


video upload by Memetune Studio

"Don’t have a Buchla 100 and EMS VCS3 to hand? No worries! Just put this video on in the background (in full-screen mode), and have the next best thing 😁

Here is 10 minutes of self-playing modular synthesiser randomness. Why not put it on loop - then you can have it bubbling away in the background while you do other things

A note on the patch: The whole thing is being run by the EMS Random Voltage Generator, but that is being modulated by a divided down set of voltages from the Buchla 8-step sequencer, so it changes the randomness very slowly, which makes it seem like its evolving as it goes along. There are ring modulated VCOs, cross mod VCOs and pitch shifted VCOs, from both systems all being mixed on the 205 matrix mixer, which also has feedback paths set up to go to the WEM valve copycat and also the Buchla dual reverbs and dual compressors. So the whole patch is intermingling and feeding back on itself via the matrix mixer. Its a highly complex patch and is pretty much impossible to describe fully because I just kept patching it until I liked the result enough to let it run and film it for 10 minutes"

Mailbag 10 - Feedback Modules VCZIII Oscillator


video upload by ranzee

"We are checking out the Feedback Modules VCZIII VCO Oscillator - both type A and B. The VCZIIIA and VCZIIIB are modelled after the EMS VCS3 synthesizer and have similar design and functionality as the original.

The mailbag series are videos where I receive parcels and open them for the first time. Plug the item in and test it out, showing you my first impressions of the items. These generally aren't reviews, nor are they a polished product demonstration. I'm more after the raw end user approach here."

"New April 2024 JEC James Edward Cosby iVCS3 Preset Bank '11-Eleven' containing 211 presets, the first 140 are playable and the remaining 71 are Sequences, Drones and self playing patches. The bank also comes with 51 accompanying CV/Audio files providing some processed Audio and Envelope / LFO CV Structures which can be used via the input channels to modulate destinations via Matrix Rows 8 and/or 9. These files may be used in your own non commercial patches to add extra functionality like percussive envelope transients and specially designed LFO shapes and fx. The first 4 Presets are related and can be morphed using the Snapshot Pad while being played via an external controller... This promotional video demos 4 short live compositions each using 2 presets, a sequence and a complimentary lead... cheers all..."

EMS VCS3 The Putney Analog Modular Synthesizer w/ DK 1 Keyboard SN 1098 & 2118

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"This listing is for an EMS VCS3 The Putney Analog Modular Synthesizer w/ Original DK 1 Keyboard. Important to note about this synth, it does not have master tune knob like many synths made after. There are three parameters the user needs to juggle to property tune this synth. The first is the frequency knob of the oscillators, 2nd is "Input Channel 1" knob and finally, the "Frequency" knob on the DK1 keyboard. Even with everything dialed in nicely, sometimes the higher or lower notes on the keyboard will be slightly out of tune. Adding or removing patch pins will raise or lower the voltages for all three of these parameters and will throw the synth out of tune. This is a historic synthesizer without the "quality of life" upgrades of analog synthesizers made after."

Original DK . 1 Keyboard w/8-pin Cable
New 3-pin Power Supply

EMS Pitch To Voltage Converter

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"Rare and useful Pitch to Voltage. Always liked this better than the GE 101, the envelope follower and trigger are particularly good. Pitch tracking is OK, depending on source, good for filter tracking. Odd for EMS this outputs at 1V/octave.

This unit has a nice history coming from EMSA. Nice Afromosa case, bulgin power cable. Vintage unit pushing 50 years old, being sold as-is, as seen."
