McCartney's Weird Sequence

video upload by Alex Ball

"I thought it would be fun to look at one of my favourite uses of the ARP Sequencer, which is in Paul McCartney's 'Temporary Secretary' released in 1980.

I also thought it would be interesting to see what the song would sound like if everything was done on synths, rather than guitars, bass and drums.

MSW SY-1 / Pearl Syncussion Modifications

video upload by Maffez Synthmods

"Got the Syncussion recreation by Michigan Synth Werks recently and could finally go fully in with modifications, something I would have never dared to do with my old Pearl SY-1. On this page here you find a documentation of DIY modifications for this iconic drum synthesiser (including filter resonance, vco hard sync, and oscillator mode switching at audio rates):"

3. honky tonk music klone kit
sound demo of the quirky klone kit control module. made in the uk 1983 it was a cheap 5 voice alternative to other popular but expensive e-drum solutions of that time. all channels are identical except the snare channel which offers noise. the sound is very limited - followed up by the more flexible klone kit 2. since there's no demo of version 1 I decided to shoot a quick video with proper audio. retail was 299 ukp.
4. elka drumstar 64 (no talking hq audio)
quick demo of all preset patterns from this funky little Italian 80s drum machine.

9. soundmaster sd-3 "disco beat" drummachine (no talking hq audio)
quick audio demo of this funky little japanese "stomp box" style disco drum machine from the late 70s.
10. pearl dr-x1

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".

very first & early look at the new & fresh libraries for the ik multimedia uno drum
13. icon design dsm200

checking out the little french 8bit drum machine from twisted electrons
