"The KORG DW-6000 "digital waveform synthesizer" came out 1985. DW stands for "digital waveform". Few months later, Korg presented an updated version, the DW-8000.

The KORG DW-6000 has 6 notes polyphony, 8 waveforms (including sawtooth, but no pulse or square, which is a pity), and superb 24db analog filters - one for every voice (unlike the Poly-800). There is also a chorus, which can be switched on or off. It has an UNISONO mode, which helps you to get fat basses. 2 envelope generators (ADBSSR). MIDI interface, SysEx abilities. Tape interface to load/store soundbanks.

The basic sound of the DW-6000 is somewhere between Poly-800 MK1 and DW-8000. To my ears it sounds more like a Poly-800.
You can produce some decent sounds with the DW-6000 - which you can't exactly duplicate on a DW-8000.

In this clip I played the DW-6000 dry, without any external effects.


Do you have a DW-6000 and want to play with the powerful sounds you are hearing here? I will send you the "ANALOGAUDIO1 DW-6000 PATCH BANK" (64 sounds) via email for 12,99 Euros (through PayPal).
You will get a MP3 with sound data for the tape interface of your DW-6000. (How the tape interface works, is described in the manual of the DW-6000, which you can download for free somewhere in the internet).

The bank contains lush analog pads, great retro sounds, fat basses, sequencer sounds and funky leads (in one word: all you are hearing in this video and some more).

These sounds are mainly suited for electronica, techno pop, disco, dance, trance and classic electronic music (Jarre, Vangelis, etc..).

As an experienced synth player / programmer I programmed these special sounds carefully - these sounds are not available anywhere else!

The soundbank will not work with the DW-8000 / EX-8000.

If you are interested, please drop me a mail.
DEUTSCH: zu den Sounds im Video:

Wollt ihr euren DW-6000 mit den hier gehörten, phatten Analogsounds aufwerten? Für 12,99 Euro (über PayPal oder Überweisung) bekommt ihr die "ANALOGAUDIO1 DW-6000 PATCHBANK" mit 64 first class Sounds - als MP3 via eMail. Diese MP3 wird durch das TAPE INTERFACE des DW-6000 eingespielt.

Die "ANALOG AUDIO 1" Soundcollection verhilft den verstaubten DW-6000 zum neuen Glanz - mit organischen, rohen Bässen, funky Leads, warmen Analog-Pads, Sequencer-Sounds, fetten Retro-Sounds (also alles was man im Video hört und ein paar mehr). Also eine Art Frischzellenkur.

Als DW-6000 Kenner habe ich die Soundbank mit viel Liebe zum Detail programmiert. Diese zeitlosen Klänge unterstreichen den analogen Charakter des DW-6000. Sie eignen sich für Electronica, Electropop, klassische EM oder für andere Styles, wo echt analoge Power gefragt ist. Diese Sounds sind übrigens nirgendwo anders erhältlich. 12,99 Euro, die wirklich gut "hörbar" investiert sind... auch fühlbar.

PS: Die Sounds funktionieren nur mit dem DW-6000, also nicht mit DW-8000/EX-8000.

Bei Interesse schickt mir bitte eine Mail."

E-MU SP-12 TURBO Vintage Drum Machine 1985 | HD DEMO

Published on Dec 31, 2013 AnalogAudio1·121 videos

"(c) 2013 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the sampling drum machine SP-12 (Turbo) from E-mu Systems Inc., from 1985. The sounds you hear are original factory drumsets. No additional effects were used.

The SP-12 (sampling percussion with 12 bit sampling) is a great American drum machine. It is like a deluxe version of the drumulator - but with 12 bit instead 8 bit sampling and with sampling functions. In 1985 this was fantastic - the most other drum machines needed new sound chips for new samples. On the SP-12 you could record your own!

The SP-12 is very flexible - for every beat and every sound in a pattern you can set volume and pitch to your needs, similar to the Sequential Circuits Drumtraks. It has a groovy sequencer! One of my favourite drum machines.

It is a studio machine with single outputs for drumsounds, MIDI, Clock IN/OUT and more..."

SOLTON ARRANGER PLUS Analog Groovebox 1987 | HD DEMO

Published on Nov 25, 2018 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2018 by AnalogAudio1

The Solton Arranger Plus is similar to the Solton Programmer 24. It is a drum machine with digital PCM drum samples and integrated arranger, which uses analog sound generation. It was produced in Italy by Ketron in 1987. It has single outputs for bass and drums. You could also play all sounds via MIDI, MIDI-sync to other drum machines possible as well. In the intro I used a delay effect from the Korg SDD-3000. The last sequence used a reverb on the drum output. A nice machine for Italo-pop!"

PULSER M75 Analog Synthesizer 1977 | HD DEMO

Published on May 21, 2020 AnalogAudio1

M75 or MX-75?

"(c) 2020 by AnalogAudio1

I played the Pulser M75 partly with delay effects from a Korg SDD-3000 (right channel only). Be careful with headphones, it's raw analog power ;-)

The Pulser M75 was manufactured in Japan in 1977 by 'Pulser Corporation'. It's identical to the Multivox MX75. The keyboard has aftertouch ('touch sensor effect') which can control vibrato depth, volume, pitch, growl and such things. It's a monophonic synthesizer with 2 VCOs, 1 Lowpass Filter, 1 VCA, 1 LFO, Sample & Hold, Noise Generator and presets, which you can modify. It's not really free programmable, but you can do some nice things with it: great leads, basses and FX. It has a very pleasing vintage analogue tone. A cool and rare synth!"

ROLAND TR-505 Vintage Drum Machine 1986 | HD DEMO

Published on Jun 7, 2013 AnalogAudio1·108 videos

"(c) 2013 by AnalogAudio1

The Roland TR-505 is a little programmable digital drum machine from 1986. This demo shows some of my own patterns.

Accent is programmable. It's some kind of mini-combination of a TR-707 and TR-727 since it has percussion sounds in addition. It has similar sounds. It has MIDI but no single outputs and no Roland SYNC-Interface. Shuffle functions available."

HOHNER RHYTHM 80 | Analog Rhythm Box 1977 | HD DEMO

Published on Oct 17, 2019 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2019 by AnalogAudio1

The Hohner Rhythm-80 was in the seventies a known and widely used analog rhythm box in Germany. Made by Hohner in Germany/Trossingen, the makers of the Clavinet :-)
There are 20 rhythms, every single rhythm has 4 variations, 80 rhythms in total.
High quality hardware of real wood an metal. The tempo will be shown exactly on the display. BASS and TREBLE controls. FADE OUT button. The cymbals can be muted.

I played the Rhythm-80 with a small amout of ambience from a Lexicon MPX-500."

ROLAND JX-8P Analog Synthesizer 1985 | HD DEMO

Published on Sep 1, 2013 AnalogAudio1·117 videos

"(c) 2013 by AnalogAudio1

In this video you hear some of my JX patches. I played the JX-8P without any effects or eq.

The Roland JX-8P is a programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer from 1985. It is 6 voice polyphonic, it has 2 DCO's per voice. Oscillator sync and cross modulation available. Analog resonant filters. 2 envelopes. Velocity sensitive keyboard. It also has aftertouch, but be warned, you need very strong fingers... :-D It has a built in chorus (two settings) and unisono modes.

It has 64 presets and 32 patch memory for your own patches. The optional PG-800 was a programmer which allowed tweaking the sounds with sliders and knobs - like on earlier analog synths. But even without the PG-800 sound editing is easy like on a Korg Poly-800.

The JX-8P has MIDI and sysex abilities, but no tape interface."

GEM/LEM PK 4900 String Machine 1979 | HD DEMO

Published on Oct 18, 2018 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2018 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the GEM/LEM (Galanti Group) PK 4900. Played along with Korg SDD-3000 for delay effects (right channel only).

The rare GEM/LEM PK 4900 is a multikeyboard containing a polyphonic section (called POLYTRON) including a string-ensemble (INSTA-STRINGS) and a monophonic preset synthesizer (called MONOTRON). Both sections are independently tunable, although intervals are not possible. Both sections have their own output on the backside. CHORUS and VIBRATO switchable.

It sounds somewhat cheesy, sometimes like a cheap organ (squarewave sound), but it was a cost effective keyboard back then. Although the strings are called 'Insta-Strings', the strings are completely different from the strings of the LEM Insta-Strings keyboard I demoed two years ago."

ROLAND SH-09 Analog Synthesizer 1979 | HD DEMO

video upload by AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2022 by AnalogAudio1

The Roland SH-09 is a great little monophonic analog synth. With only 1 oscillator, a wide range of cool sounds are possible! Quite simple design, but the basic sound is excellent: the fast envelope, the PWM in combination with the sub oscillator makes that 'magic Roland analog sound' happen.

Quite interesting features as S&H, noise generator, 24 dB filter, ADSR, external signal input (with its own input level slider). The sound architecture is very similar to its successor SH-101, but the SH-09 sounds more like the earlier Roland gear from the 70ies. It really shines when controlled by a sequencer, it has some fantastic percussive sounds. Built like a tank, high quality hardware, easy to repair.

I played the Roland SH-09 with reverb effects from the Lexicon MPX-500 (in the intro) and delay effects from the Korg SDD-3000 (right channel only). On the left channel you can hear the synth dry.

At 3:15 it gets groovy with the Roland TR-606! Enjoy..."

ELGAM CAROUSEL Vintage Groovebox 1976 | HD DEMO

Published on Jul 30, 2013 AnalogAudio1·115 videos

"(c) 2013 by AnalogAudio1

The CAROUSEL is an interesting analog preset rhythmbox with accompaniment made by Elgam, Italy. It has rhythm (like the Elgam Rhythm Match series), bass, chord and 3 arpeggiators! Rare, obscure and very interesting! :-)

I played the Elgam Carousel along with a Roland DEP-5 for dely effects."

MOOG MULTIMOOG Analog Synthesizer 1978 | HD DEMO

Published on Sep 26, 2013 AnalogAudio1·117 videos

"(c) 2013 by AnalogAudio1

I played the Multimoog with reverb effects from a Lexicon MPX-500 and delay effects from a Roland DEP-5.

The Multimoog is a highly versatile analog monophonic synthesizer. It is basically an extended version of the Micromoog, which came out 3 years before. It features a ribbon controller and a touch sensitive keyboard. It has many interesting modulation routings and has a powerful, analog sound.

The Multimoog has 2 VCOs and a suboscillator. The filter can be modulated by the oscillator B in different ways. It has oscillator sync, noise generator, sample & hold, mixable oscillator waveforms, pulse width modulation, the 24 dB Moog filter and two envelopes. It has all interfacing you would expect from a good monophonic synth: CV / Gate IN and OUT, EXTERNAL SIGNAL IN, VCF IN. You can even play a Moog modular system from the Micromoog keyboard."

YAMAHA SK15 String Machine 1979 | HD DEMO

Published on Oct 29, 2017 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2017 by AnalogAudio1

Synthesizer Demo of the analog synthesizer/string machine YAMAHA SK-15. I played with a delay effect from a Korg SDD-3000 (right channel only - the left channel is dry).

Yamaha's SK-series are string machines with additional sections (poly-synth, mono-synth, brass, organ, depending on the model). The SK15 is some kind of cut down version of the SK-20. It has "ORGAN", "STRING" and "POLY-SYNTH" sections, they all are mixable. The Poly-Synth section has a nice analog filter (but only one for all voices). 1 mono output for all sections. A nice string machine! It competed with Crumar Performer and Korg Delta."

VINTAGE MOOG MINIMOOG Analog Synthesizer 1979 | HD DEMO

Published on Mar 12, 2017 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2017 by AnalogAudio1

I played the Minimoog D with reverb effects from a Lexicon MPX-500 and delay effects from a Korg SDD-3000.

The Minimoog D is a real classic. It is a monophonic synthesizer with a fat analog sound from USA. It has 3 oscillators, a 24dB Moog lowpass filter, 2 envelopes, noise generator. The third oscillator can be used as LFO with a wide frequency range. The Minimoog D is heard on many, many recordings."

TOY #11 CASIO MT-100 Keyboard 1983 | HD DEMO

Published on Aug 13, 2014 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2014 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the Casio MT-100 in original state (not circuit bent). The MT-100 is a typical Casio of the mid eighties. The distinctive feature of this keyboard is the built in graphic equalizer. It can be routed to the keyboard or to the drum section (not the accompaniment). It has a switchable "fake reverb", which can be found on many organs. The analog drums sound very nice - like a typical seventies rhythm box. A nice, portable keyboard with good sounds!"

This is one of my favourite vintage drum machines.

The Sequential (Circuits) TOM is a great digital drum machine made in USA - similar to the SCI Drumtraks. It has a decent MIDI implementation. The TOM's has 8 samples built in; inserting a sound cartridge, you can have 7 additional samples. A shame, that it does not have individual outputs.

The crispy 8-bit samples sound great. The built in sequencer has a 'tight' groove, it grooves like hell!
I don't mean the 'shuffle' function (there is none). It has a very tight timing!"

QUASIMIDI CARUSO | The Most Impressive Soundscapes | Digital Synthesizer Module 1993

video upload by AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2023 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the QUASIMIDI CARUSO digital synthesizer module from 1993 - The Most Impressive Soundscapes.

All sounds come from a single QM Caruso played live without additional effects and without any treatment - right from the stereo outputs. The general sound has something magical to it imho. All sounds are factory presets, which I chosed as "the best" of this instrument. Of course there are also a lot of accordion and organ sounds (the organs are not bad either, but not exactly my cup of tea). Some factory presets (mostly pads) are surprisingly good and they don't hide the fact that the Caruso has limited D/A converters, which makes the sound 'lo-fi' in general. It sounds quite nice - what do you think?

The Quasimidi Caruso is not very common outside Germany, very cheap nowadays, it's a good choice if you like lofi digital synth sounds from the early nineties!"

You can find another demo of the Caruso here.
