Vintage Synthesizer Museum - Highland Park

video upload by mateo

"Visit and learn about the Vintage Synthesizer Museum."


Wednesday, October 04, 2023


video upload by EMEAPP

Starts with the Minimoog, followed by lots of ARP QUADRA in this one. EMEAPP is a synth museum. You can find additional posts featuring them here.

"It does our hearts good to see the younger generations take an interest in the classic tunes from decades past and add their own flair to them. Here for your eyes and ears is the house band from the Fort Washington, PA chapter of the School Of Rock, performing a quartet of 70s classics (Frankenstein by The Edgar Winter Group, Have A Cigar by Pink Floyd, Hydra by Toto and Stargazer by Rainbow). Our good friend and School Of Rock musical director Mike Kiker (check out his INSIDE THE MIX: Rick Wright video on our channel, link below) guided these kids through the setlist and it was an awesome experience to see them light up our vintage keys and synths, amps and drum kit which added an extra layer of sonic authenticity to their performances.

You can find us at where we invite you to join us as a FREE member."

A history of synthesizers with Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio | Art Works

video upload by ABC Arts

"Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS) holds the largest collection of electronic instruments in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s home to 1400 synthesizers, drum machines and other electronic making equipment.

We zeroed in on two synthesizers in particular, the ARP 2600, which provided the iconic voice of R2-D2 in Star Wars, and the Fairlight CMI, which was made in Australia and changed synthesizer history."

The Biggest Synth Museum in the World???

video upload by AudioPilz

"Bad Gear is taking a week off, instead I have teamed up with the one and only Gaz Williams and we will be taking a look at the mind blowing EBOARDMUSEUM in the beautiful city of Klagenfurt, Austria located in the Alps right next to the Wörthersee.

The EBOARDMUSEUM is probably the biggest synth museum in the world and contains rare exhibits ranging from the very first Minimoog (Serial 1001) to all kinds of synthesizer classics like the Yamaha CS-80, Roland Jupiter-8, instruments used by famous artists like Mike Oldfield, Tangerine Dream and The Grateful Dead, various string machines, vintage modular synthesizers and an absolutely incredible collection of organs including the very first Hammond organ from 1935.

Rob Rosen Reveals His Ultimate Synth Collection

video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

A look inside the Yamaha CS80, the 14th ever made Sequential Prophet-5, a Rev 1, and a Roland Juno-106, touching on some of the evolution of analog synthesis technology over the years.

"I hope you enjoy this rare opportunity to visit with my close friend Rob Rosen for a deep dive into his ultimate vintage synth collection. Together, we’ll see inside some of the rarest synthesizers of all-time and learn from this master technician how synthesizers have evolved, what makes them tick and why synthesizers make such cool sounds!

I consider Rob’s shop @Rosen Sound ground zero for anything relating to synthesizers. It’s also the biggest wonderland of vintage synths in perfect working order that you’ll ever see .

Rob is a self-taught technician and is now the world leader for repair, restoration, custom manufacturing and sales of vintage synthesizers. He’s also quite an accomplished musician programmer and keyboard player as well."

125 Hardware Synthesizers In One Place! Our Sound Design Laboratory & Private Synthesizers Museum!

video upload by LFOstore

"What does heaven for sound designers and synth lovers look like? Welcome to Nick Klimenko's Synth Museum! Long-awaited dream is now true. Nick built a whole house near Moscow, which will be available to every synth enthusiast and serve as an office for LFO Store projects. The space can be used for composing, mixing, sound tweaking, re-amping midi notes and all possible needs.

It is worth noting that synthesizers have been a big part of film music for the recent 50 years. Just think of Vangelis and 'Blade Runner', John Carpenter and 'Halloween', Daft Punk and 'Tron' movies...

Now many of these instruments that are used in film scoring, available for our synth community. Welcome to our new home!

Hainbach Gave Away His Test Equipment - Exploring The New Tape and Test Equipment Studio in Porto

video upload by HAINBACH

"I gave away my test equipment (two palettes of it at least) and I am happy about that! Because it became the foundation of a new tape and test equipment studio that you too can record in now. It is situated at the non-profit association Sonoscopia in Porto, Portugal. Sonoscopia is a unique place run by musicians and sound artists. Every nook and cranny is filled with objects made by artists who did residencies there. It is truly one of the nicest places in experimental music I have found across the world.

I gave a workshop on how to use this equipment for music, and here is the short version of that. If you are interested in the full process and more knowledge, the unedited version is on my Patreon.

The MakeNoise Museum | and farewell to vactrols...

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"Today I'd like to revisit the classic #makenoisemusic modules from a different perspective. TipTop Audio has been the first company to actually clarify the vactrol ban in the EU/UK and not being able to ship a 292T to the old continent. Vactrols contain cadmium which is bad for the environment and your health. Don't worry, they're fine while they're in your modules (and you can keep them), just don't eat or smoke them and don't bury your QMMG. You may wonder what vactrols are and the old MakeNoise gear was packed with them while supplies lasted. I think MakeNoise used vintage vactrols from the previous century to match the sound of the true Buchla LPG. But supplies didn't last, and even if it did, they can't ship DPO's and Optomixes to the UK/EU forever. Maybe they already can't due to the vactrol ban. So times are changing. The old continent is in the lead, but the rest of the world will eventually follow, even in countries where it's more dangeous to breathe air and bathe in a holy river. But you have to start somewhere and vactrols seemed to be a great way to start saving the planet. As for vactrols and LPG's, i am sure and confident there will be noise after the vactrol. What do you think?"

"Here for your listening and viewing pleasure is yet another rarity from our extensive collection of obscure and unusual mono synths. This is the Syrinx from the Dutch manufacturer Synton, circa 1983. This particular unit features the rarest color combination of the whole production and we were proud to have it featured in the Synth Gems 1 book from Bjooks. In this episode of Sonic Test Drive, join electronic music pioneer Don Slepian as he takes you through the ins and outs of this beast, including it's highly sought after filter and unique paddle controls.
