Processed Mellotron M4000D May 31st 2024

video upload by John L Rice

"A quick and dirty Mellotron noodle. I currently can’t stand for long (foot issue) so I took some experimental noodling audio and some rough snapshots of the gear used and edited it all into a video FWIW.

So it's the Mellotron M4000D Rack was processed through a Club Of The Knobs fixed filter bank and channel enhancer with 6 outputs of the channel enhancer mixed by Modcan and Moon mixers and returned to the main Allen and Heath mixer for some additional EQ and effects processing from Strymon pedals Mobius, DECO, and BigSky, plus a touch of reverb from the Lexicon MX400."

4/15/24 Viscount R-64s PCM + Peavey 1300 + DBX 900 (3x 905/903) + Lexicon PCM 70 (small room)

video upload by Cfpp0

"In boca al lupo, ragazza. Ciao! A final test of the recently serviced, perfectly working, very rare, and wonderfully Italian Viscount R-64s PCM 8-bit drum machine before packing it up and sending it off to its new owner. Mix out goes mono to a Mackie submixer to the DBX 900, going through one 905/903 into the next 905/903, with an aux send from the Mackie out to the Peavey 1300 delay going to a third 905/903 set. Those two signals then go to two channels on the Mackie Onyx 1640 mixer, with Lexicon PCM 70 small room reverb on an aux."

4/4/24 (swarm) Gieskes Klok & No Drum + Zerosum Inertia PLXNA2 + OAM Uncertainty + Lexicon PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"Butterflies, bats, 16mm swarm: Gieskes Klok modulates itself and No Drum and Olivia Artz Modular Uncertainty, which modulates No Drum, while Klok gates No Drum."

You cand find additional Gieskes Kok module posts here.

This appears to be the first post to feature Olivia Artz Modular. Details on their modules follow via Perfect Circuit and Noisebug.

"Uncertainty from Olivia Artz Modular is a 2hp coin toss module; it is open source, with new, user-swappable firmware being developed. So, it will continue to grow and offer new functionality!

In the standard firmware, the top input accepts gates, triggers, or any signal between -5V and +5V. Based on whether the input is positive or negative, it uses two different types of logic to produce gates at the corresponding eight outputs. If the input is above +1V, then the module does eight differently-weighted "coin tosses"—one for each output. If the outcome of the toss is "heads," a +5V signal is output for as long as the input stays above 1V. If the input signal is -1V or lower, a slightly different coin toss algorithm is used, where the outputs are paired—if the result of the toss is "heads," the upper output of the pair in question sends out a signal, and if it's "tails," the lower outputs sends out a signal.

Alternate firmwares are available for free, and loading them is as easy as plugging in your module via the rear PCB USB connection, dragging on a file, and you're done. The first new official firmware is a VU meter—with the panel LEDs displaying the current voltage level, and each LED getting a dedicated gate output—somewhat like a multi-window comparator! Olivia Artz's Uncertainty module is a great way to add chance operations to your rack without sacrificing space.

3/30/24 Pasco Scientific WA-9307A Fourier Synthesizer (modified) + Lexicon PCM 70 (3.0 Concert Hall)

video upload by Cfpp0

"This Pasco Scientific WA-9307A Fourier Synthesizer was just modified with a global pitch control. The 10K output goes to a Low-gain Electronics format jumbler (banana to 1/4” TS), then into a Lower West Side Studios Triple Attenuator module, and then into the Mackie Onyx 1640 mixer, where it gets reverb from the Lexicon PCM 70."

ESK - Drums + Mixer Jamsession

video upload by Metunar

"Jamsession with an Elektron Digitakt and a Roland CR-8000 mixed together in an analog Ibanez RM-60 Mixer.
There is also reverb from a Lexicon PCM 90 (yellow FX knob on the mixer).
Furthermore I use the monitoring send as feedback line (blue FX knob on the mixer).
With mastering.

The Ibanez RM-60 is similar in design to the Boss KM-60. The Boss has more drive in the preamp and the HiPass filter in the master section can be used better in a performance.
The Ibanez Mixer on the other side has less ground noise and a monitor send.
I like both of them. Good usable for a jamsession."

3/17/24 (bass version) ElectroComp EML 200 + Lexicon PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"Some more RoboCop from the ElectroComp EML 200. Similarly hysterical patch as in the previous 3/17/24 EML 200 video, but more of a bass version this time, with lower tuning on each VCO, different on times for the spring reverb running into the switch, and a bit less swung."

3/17/24 ElectroComp EML 200 + Lexicon PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"The VCO 2 pitch knob is all the way counter clockwise until 0:55, when it is turned up and the VCO goes into audible range and more FM occurs between the two VCOs. That knob continues to get turned and also some on time changes on the switch. Lexicon PCM 70 provides the stereo delay."

3/11/24 (slower range) ElectroComp EML 200 + Lexicon PCM 70 (1.3 Circular Dlys)

video upload by Cfpp0

"Same patch as in the previous 3/11/24 EML 200 video, but with a lower range setting on the master oscillator:

The ElectroComp EML 200 master oscillator square wave drives the whole wave shaper section and the switch. Sampler is fed one output of VCO 1. VCO 1 and VCO 2 outputs go to the ring modulator. VCO 2 also goes to VCO 1 CV input. Sampler outputs go to VCO 1 and VCO 2 CV inputs. Wave shaper is set to amplitude, with the ring mod output going to carrier in, and modulation input is first getting a sine wave from the master oscillator (until 0:45), then only the switch output is audible until (at 0:53) I change it to the envelope. The ring mod output also goes to the spring reverb, 100% wet, which goes to the switch. The switch output is dry, but a stereo delay from the Lexicon PCM 70 is applied to the output of the wave shaper, which runs through mixer No. 1 on the 200."

3/3/24 Metasonix R-54, R-52, R-51 + Moog DFAM & Subharmonicon + Doepfer + Lexicon PCM 70

video upload by Cfpp0

"Similar patch and settings as in the other day-lit 3/3/24 video, but stopping and starting the DFAM at different steps to latch onto different pitches. Moog Subharmonicon is running through Metasonix R-52. Moog DFAM is running through Metasonix R-54 & R-51. Moog and Doepfer provide the modulation. Lexicon PCM 70 is set to Gated Plate reverb off the Mackie Onyx 1640."

Vintage Lexicon PCM90 Casio CZ-1 Synthesizer Live electronics Demo. Improv. “Inner Joy”.

video upload by Scifi Funk

"VINTAGE CASIO CZ-1 Synthesizer with a LEXICON PCM90 Reverb. Improv. 'Inner Joy'

In this demo, I play a VINTAGE CASIO CZ-1 Synthesizer (big brother to the CASIO CZ-101) sound through the classic LEXICON PCM90 Reverb. Two of them are housed in a LEXICON LDI-12T PC Interface. The track is an improv around a riff I thought up moments before the demo.

I was feeling happy as I’d just got the LEXICON LDI-12T working again after being years out of service. Fiddling around, these chords came to mind. As it was a demo I quickly recorded before the idea left me. There is no programming involved. There are times when you just need to play.

So, why the LEXICON PCM-90 Reverb? Well, it gives THAT distinctive reverb sound which oozes quality. Reverb is a very important part of recording giving the instrument or vocal depth or near-field presence.

These demos were played live, then received a few little tweaks here and there because in real life my brain and fingers fall in and out of alignment. However in this case I left a few small errors in, just so you know I wasn’t faking it. I was happy! Sadly since then the Lexicon interface and its reverbs have died again. Oh well, back to the VST plugins!"

ARP OMNI-2 with Lexicon PRIME TIME 93

video upload by CGMAGIK

"I've had both these units for quite some time now, but both needed repairs.
I got the ARP back around 1997 (for only $100 at the time!). It generally worked fine for many years, but was missing the bass voices and the XLR output didn't work. As time went on, it developed some sustaining note issues etc. The Lexicon was given to me in non-working condition around 2004. I brought it to a few people over the years to try and get it working but never with any luck. For the past few years, I have a had a great tech working on some synths and studio gear for me (check him out! - and he was able to bring the Prime Time to life! The Omni-2 had a complete make over. New key bushings, total re-cap, all new sliders and now works and sounds fantastic. I just got both of these back today and what better way to celebrate their new found life than to plug them in together for some sweet sounds. AND SWEET THEY ARE!"
