Therapsid mk3 (multitimbral sequencing)

video upload by

"Hi this a track I converted to sequence the Therapsid.

Disclaimer this Therapsid was sent to me by Twisted Electrons and I spent so long working with them to get the firmware all working nicely so it worked as expected from someone that uses c64's as well as synths, I'm going to mark it as a paid promotion anyway though.

The track is called 'There's still time' , I originally made it on a Digitakt using samples. Here it is being sequenced by a Dirtywave M8.

I have quite a few clips of the Therapsid on my instagram if you would like to see them as the firmware progressed to where it is today.

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.

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".

Twisted Electrons MEGAfm synthesizer demo.

video upload by Ross Totino

"Demo of Twisted Electrons MEGAfm synthesizer. Custom presets by me. Not the most subtle synth, but full of character and still very versatile. It distorts very easily which makes creating clean sounds a challenge, but IMHO it's one of the best FM synth ever."

TherapSID - more ASID and DeepSID support | Playback and remix C64 SID tunes

video upload by tubesockor

"Here is a new demo with further enhancements to my development version of the ASID support for Twisted Electrons TherapSID. This enables playback of Commodore 64 SID files on the TherapSID hardware and also adds extensive remix capabilities.

Also being demoed is in-development ASID support for DeepSID - the browser-based SID player and database. When released, this means that not only TherapSID but also SidStation, Midibox and Commodore 64 (Station64) owners can playback C64 SID tunes straight from the browser.

Commodore 64 SID Songs played in the video:
0:00 Fjoss V1.1 - Moppe (2002)
1:06 Green Beret - Martin Galway (1986)
3:27 Ballad for Jeff - Shogoon (2023)"

Therapsid hard synced PWM 6581

video upload by Avrilcadabra

"This is a Therapsid from Twisted Electrons which was sent to me to make a demonstration video (this is not that video) as there are very few videos on it and I love sid chips and c64's I'm like Bane except I was born into Sid pulse width modulation instead of darkness. I have had it for over a month now and have been working hard testing pretty much every day to make sure it does everything it is suppose to do and everything a c64 fan might expect it to do. Some issues are still present as of this video but are being worked on. It is open source and I suggest anyone considering one go and read the issues section on Twisted Electrons github to see what bugs remain and what future enhancements might be coming.

while this works as just a very nice retro sounding hands on synth for those that are not commodore die hards it can be sequenced multitimbrally as shown here and controlled with cc's. As of this video I am still waiting for glide to be fixed to work multitimbrally (each voice glides independently and works fine in the main mode in

This is just a test day I filmed. without any care to video quality. Expect a full demonstration of this synth in the near future.

In this video the Therapsid is being sequenced by the Dirtywave M8. I'm pointing to the individual voices as the m8 turns them on."

TherapSID with ASID support! (Plays C64 SID tunes)

video upload by tubesockor

"Since the Twisted Electrons TherapSID firmware is now open source, I have implemented some enhancements to my unit, adding 'ASID' protocol support and performance controls, showcased here. ASID was originally developed as a way of sending Commodore 64 SID files over MIDI to be played back on the Elektron Sidstation.

First few minutes shows the features, then follows some full SID songs. This TherapSID is equipped with two 6581 SIDs, a bit panned to give a stereo effect.

#jamuary2023 (3) Dream Synth

video upload by True Cuckoo

"In 2022 I had the absolute pleasure of working with Love Hultén @hulten1000 An amazing independent Swedish artist who has specialised in giving his now iconic design to select gear. In our collaboration I chose to combine the MegaFM synth, the Blue Sky reverb and the Keystep 37 keyboard into one absolute dream synth. Here played in one take without any editing whatsoever.

I started Jamuary in January 2017, as a movement to gather us boopy music heads, and to motivate people to get used to the idea of showing their music in front of other people. It quickly grew out of proportions thanks to everybody joining in! Let's continue with the tradition, but don't burn yourself out in the process. Do what you can, what is meaningful to you, or just browse around and get inspired. And don't worry if it's just a little boop. I like boop. Tag your post with #jamuary2023 and join the movement."
