Future Retro XS SN FRXS386

via this auction

"exceptional analog mono synthesizer. inspired by the icons of synth history: Moog CP3 Type Mixer, Roland TB-303 distortion, Sequential Circuits Pro One modulations. Two different envelope curves can be selected via Velocity for accents.

The device is not new, there is some slight bleed in the mix section, and sometimes the MIDI pitch tracking is lost, then it needs a restart. no big deal, I'll mention it here that there are no disappointments.

Product information "Future Retro - XS"
The Future Retro XS offers charming, yet hefty sound with remarkable expressiveness. It is perfect for creating meaty basses, soft to aggressive leads and powerful drums. Thanks to its thought-through routing system, that incorporates audio signals as well as control voltages, the monophonic desktop synthesizer is also capable of creating a wide range of experimental audio effects. MIDI connectors plus Audio and CV jacks allow easy integration in any studio or live setup."

"Green Bokeh Trance" (Future Retro Zillion & Hydrasynth) - modularman

video upload by modularman

"Hello Dear Friends - I recently watched an interesting talk here on YouTube by musicologist Ted Gioia, where he posits that when music is at least ten minutes long, the listener's brainwaves sync up with the rhythm of the music, and can create a trance state. So with this idea in mind, I decided to record a longer piece to attempt to produce this trance state. The tools I used are the Future Retro Zillion to generate the notes into the ASM Hydrasynth. No other treatments or external devices were used to create this piece. Every sound is made by the Hydrasynth in one take.

A tip of the hat to Jeffery Beach of Beachfront Productions, for providing free use video clips on his website.

Does it work? You tell me. This sort of thing isn’t for everyone, but if you enjoy lying back, closing your eyes and meditating to pseudo-random generative style music, this just might be your cup of bananas.

Let’s hear from you!"

Future Retro Vectra Rippin' Sounds

video upload by FutureRetroSynths

"All sounds in this video were recorded directly from the Future Retro Vectra Synthesizer. No additional EQ, Compression, or Effects were used. These sounds contain low frequency content, listen with a subwoofer to appreciate.

It's interesting to note that while the Vectra does not have a built in distortion stage as many of our other products are well known for, the Vectra's oscillators are powerful enough to synthesize many different forms of distortion all by themselves using our one-of-a-kind Phase-Slice modes.

This video highlights quite a few of these more aggressive sounds, most of which will use only one or two oscillators.

Some of the new complex vector synthesis patches sound amazing.

Future Retro 777 Analog Synthesizer Rare Silver Version Only 7 Units Ever Made SN FR3D714990SE1

via this auction

"In 2019, Jered from Future Retro opened his vault and sold some incredibly rare synths from his collection. I was lucky enough to buy this ultra rare brushed silver model from the buyer of this sale, one out of only 7 ever produced, with just 4 ever released to the public. It has the more controlled overdrive output level, V3 OS, and has been serviced with updated temperature compensation mod for the oscillators, a new backup battery and complete calibration. It is essentially a brand new, mint condition 777. It includes an original US power supply purchased from Future Retro. Since buying this, I have spent no more than a few hours playing with it in total. It is the best sounding synth I have ever heard and I wish I had more time to spend with it. Unfortunately for me (and fortunately for you!), I have other life priorities at the moment and need to let this beauty go. This will come packaged with multiple layers of bubble wrap/protection and insured as well, hence the shipping cost. If you would like to forego this expense please reach out before purchasing."
