Auto Rhythmica for the Korg Wavestate: Heavy Levee Demo

"These videos demonstrate our new drum and percussion performances from 'Auto Rhythmica'. Our (soon to be released) brand new bank of drum and percussion sequences for the complete Korg Wavestate lineup!

You might ask yourself, 'What am I looking at?' when watching these video demonstrations. Sorry, we tried to make the mod knob actions easy to see and hear in these videos. The mod knob automation lanes are labeled but you may need to view these videos in full screen mode to make them easier on the eyes. The videos demonstrate just a few of the mod knob modulations, each performance has more under the hood than we could possibly demonstrate in 90 or so seconds. As always, absolutely no talking!!!

via this auction

"This is a holy grail synth. Truly the heart of early Gary Numan/Tubeway Army's sound. This was Moog's first attempt at a proper polyphonic synth. It is a real classic! Two oscillators per voice, a stunning filter, and an unrivaled warmth are the key to the Polymoog's lasting mystique. These rarely come around, so take advantage of this opportunity! In very good condition, tested and found to be functioning as it should. Comes with the original foot pedals."

Befaco - Octaves VCO

video upload by Befacosynth

"A harsh and funky take of an additive Oscillator.
Pile up multiplications of your frequency to get a lo-fi-retro wall of squared sound!
You get six doubled frequency pulses, or octaves, with common PWM and volume control for each of them.
The output of each is cascaded to the next one, so you can either have one output with all frequencies or break the chain and get several sums and modulate each independently!"

Update: and video from Divkid directly below. Also see mylarmelodies' Molten Music Technology video here.

A harsh & funky take on an additive oscillator // Octaves VCO from Befaco

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have what Befaco say is "a harsh and funky take on an additive oscillator" as it has individual harmonics or partials and VCAs to modulate them. However the idea of harmonics here is replaced with 6 octaves of square waves. It's an analog design with a triangle core oscillator that through frequency doublers give 6 octaves to work with, each turned into squares that respond to PWM. An onboard mixer allows for blending these squares, you can break out into new tones with self patching, or make multi-layered wide frequency spanning voices from the individual outs."

SN 0152 via this listing

"Legendary and very rare 1970s Eko Ekosynth - analog Italian Monosynth.

Working but needs some attention. See attached video for full demonstration of current working condition.

Some keys sticking, drone in the background of the sound.

Capable of extremely far out sounds with the audio rate LFO assignable to multiple functions.

Synth was working perfectly up until about 3months ago (apart from the sticking keys) and has just developed the issues."

video upload by Blake Helton


via this listing

"Hohner String Synth from late 70s made by Italian company Elex who made other string synths for Farfisa, Logan and whoever else asked them to build a model. if they asked real nice.

This thing is in awesome shape and sounds like a poor man’s ARP String Ensemble/Eminent Solina. Much closer to the functionality and sound of an Elka Rhapsody 490 but I think the ensemble modulation sounds thicker. The lowest F# not working when just using cello sound. Could be a case of reseating one of the socketed ICs. Your basic divide-down synth. The power supply has been recapped and some other cap replacements. I added a mod so you can dial in or remove the ensemble modulation. Gives another sound set for some combo organ type vibrato-less sounds. Separate power supply/swell pedal.

With the power supply/vol pedal, this is kind of heavy so would prefer to meet somewhere in the Atlanta area. Of course I offer shipping as well for a flat rate.

Run this gal thru some phaser and start working on that horror movie soundtrack or Klaus Schulze-inspired kozmik voyages. Very easy to work on but you wont need to do anything to enjoy immediately."

Vongon Replay Virtual Analog Synth | Overview + Exploration

video upload by Sarah Belle Reid

"A demo and walkthrough of the new polysynth Replay, by Vongon. Replay is a 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer with a compact form factor that takes inspiration from classic poly synths from the 1980s, like the Roland Juno series + the Korg Polysix.

This video includes an overview of what Replay is and how it works, along with a number of sound examples demonstrating Replay on its own and in combination with FX pedals, to create a wide range of sounds from classic synth leads, pads, and arpeggios to more experimental textures and noisy sound worlds."

"Today we take the beautiful Replay by Vongon out for a spin and also have a conversation about synthesis basics in honor of my five year synth-a-versary. Vongon really hit it out of the park with this instrument and--whether it's your first synth or your 10th-- there's a lot here to love."

VONGON REPLAY Polyphonic Synth & Arpeggiator | Can I write a synth-pop track with it?!

video upload by Ambient Endeavors

"Man, I just love gear that makes you approach writing differently. That reminds you how fun it can be to find new sounds and feels, explore new ways of composing. And today, the new Vongon Electronics REPLAY is doing that for me - a super fun, approachable, compact polyphonic synth and arpeggiator."

via Perfect Circuit

"The Replay is the first synthesizer offering from boutique pedal designers Vongon, offering a six-voice virtual analog sound engine with multi-mode arpeggiator. Inspired by beloved keyboard synths of the early 80s like the Roland Juno and Korg Polysix, the Replay faithfully delivers warm and lush vintage timbres in a compact package that drips with modern aesthetics and utility. In Replay, Vongon has struck an impressive balance between scope of features, user experience, and overall sound quality. The result is an instrument that sounds wonderfully rich and nostalgia-laden, with an interface that is easy to understand - perfectly approachable for a beginning synthesist, yet deep enough to inspire veteran wigglers to explore the edges of its capabilities.

Replay's front panel is incredibly straightforward, with simple controls for its primary functions conveniently accessible. Additional options are selected via the "secret menu" alt functions. At the heart of Replay's sound engine are multiple selectable waveforms for its primary oscillator, with ramp, square, triangle, and sine modes. Noise amount, pulse width modulation, and LFO pitch modulation offer further timbral manipulations before passing to the four-pole, low-pass filter. Highly resonant and warm, the filter includes modulation depth controls from the primary envelope, keyboard tracking, and the LFO. The VCA features options for maximum amplitude and modulation source. An organic and responsive ADSR envelope and the on-board LFO round out this straightforward voice, with flexible modulation routing options between the main controls and alt functions.

The multimode arpeggiator on the Replay opens up a variety of fun and engaging options for controlling the synthesizer voice. Latch and keyed modes, in addition to the three poly modes available on the alt functions, offer a variety of ways for creating snappy and spiraling arpeggios and fuzzy, morphing pads. Up/Down, order, and random modes provide further ways to organize pitch material. The alt functions allow the LFO to be clocked by the ARP speed, creating rhythmically modulated phrases that are a joy to get lost in.

All in all, the Vongon Replay delivers a premium virtual analog experience that feels streamlined and purpose-built for getting beautiful analog sounds quickly. With plenty of depth in sound color and just the right amount of tricks up its sleeve to keep you immersed in music making rather than menu diving, the Replay is sure to become a go-to instrument for lush pads and other classic synth timbres. Its physical design is beautifully simple, and the responsive feel of its Cherry MX keys invite playful interaction that is hard to put down. Of course, the Replay is a lovely source for running through Vongon pedals, creating an instant synthwave or soundtrack machine paired with an Ultrasheer or Polyphrase. If you're needing a straightforward synth with limitless sonic charm, the Vongon Replay is a wonderful choice.

THE KIMOPHONE - Saxophone Meets Keytar by Kimo Lobo

video upload by kimo lobo

Note this viddo is from 10 years ago.

"The KIMOPHONE is a breath controlled MIDI instrument that is one of a family of new musical instruments created by Kimo Lobo. Also introduced in this video is a MIDI Melodica, a PIATAR and a PIACELLO as well as the two-manual breath-controlled KIMOCORDION. These instruments are all prototypes and are the only ones in the world."

Thanks to Tom at Palmer's East for this one.

Catching Feelings on the Kimophone

video upload by kimo lobo

"I was recently contacted by the tv show Shark Tank and asked to make a 10 minute video pitching my Kimophone to the Sharks. This clip is the first couple minutes of that video. It is me playing the Justin Bieber song CATCHING FEELINGS on the Kimophone using a tenor sax sound alternating with electric guitar. Unfortunately the Sharks never chose to have me on the show so I decided to put this clip on Youtube since I've always really liked this song. Hope you enjoy it."

And the PIATAR:

PIATAR by Kimo Lobo

video upload by kimo lobo

"The PIATAR is a new musical instrument developed by Kimo Lobo. The PIATAR in this video is the only one in the world. It features a two octave MIDI keyboard and six strumable strings in an ornate wooden case. The left hand plays chords on the keyboard and the right hand strums or finger picks the strings. Chords are re-voiced in any of three neck positions. The sound is limited only to the MIDI sample library available. This demo uses a Roland steel six string guitar sample from an XV5080. Thanks to Charlie Labs for their wonderful Digitar."

This one was spotted and sent in via electraumatisme.

Note the Cherry labels at the bottom of each module. It looks like Cherry/MRB

You can see it for yourself at 24:04 in this video.

Update: according to Atomic Shadow this actually appears to be the currently availabile VM900 Collection.

You can find videos dating back to 2021 here, intro video here. I'm not finding any videos mentioning the VM900 after 2021.

If anyone knows otherwise, feel free to leave a comment.

Update2 via Robert Saint John in the comments: "[Atomic Shadow] is correct, this is simply the Cherry Audio/MRB bundle of VM900 modules for Cherry Audio’s Voltage Modular platform, released in October 2021. We have not announced any plans to release this as a standalone or VST instrument"
