EMEAPP/CHERRY AUDIO PS-3300


video upload by EMEAPP

"Are you thinking of purchasing the new Cherry Audio PS-3300 plugin? Check out this video! Make sure you purchase it directly from cherryaudio.com as 10% of the profits will be donated to our organization during the month of October. An option for an additional $5 donation is also available at checkout so please consider that as well, your support is greatly appreciated!

While we were involved in prior product releases (GX-80 and Novachord), this was our first collaboration from the ground level with Cherry Audio and we definitely wanted to make an impression. We felt that a recreation of our cherished and ultra-rare KORG PS-3300 polyphonic synthesizer would be the perfect candidate for Cherry to translate from the actual hardware to the computer screen in their inimitable style. They did the PS-3300 justice and we are extremely proud to have been the source of the secrets to this mythical beast. We are also extremely grateful to the fine folks at Cherry Audio who have gone above and beyond in their support of EMEAPP and our mission. We look forward to future projects together.

Cherry Audio Introduces PS-3300 Virtual Analog Recreation of the KORG PS-3300 Synthesizer


video upload by Cherry Audio

"PS-3300 is an exactingly faithful virtual analog emulation of the colossal and ultra-rare semi-modular analog polyphonic synthesizer released by KORG in 1977. Cherry Audio has pulled out all the stops to accurately recreate and update this mythical monster synth, from its massive stacked sonic character and signature multiple‑resonator sweeps to the considerable patching capabilities that distinguished the PS-3300 from all other polysynths at the time."

Introduction to Cherry Audio's PS-3300 - Hosted by Tim Shoebridge

video upload by Cherry Audio

"To get users up and running with PS-3300, Cherry Audio and Tim Shoebridge of Sound Mangling have again teamed up to create an introductory tutorial video walking users through the history and extensive features of this massive virtual synthesizer instrument.

Cherry Audio PS-3300 - a massive demo and tutorial for a massive synth

video upload by CatSynth TV

"Today we present the new PS-3300 from our friends at Cherry Audio, in partnership with the good people at the Electronic Music Education and Preservation Project (EMEAPP). The original Korg PS-3300 is a massive polyphonic semi-modular analog synthesizer with three independent polyphonic synth voices, each of which has a multi-waveform oscillator, low-pass resonant filter, a unique three-band resonator, independent tuning of each note of the scale and more. Cherry Audio's version recreates the look and sound of the original, and adds some additional modern features.

Such a beast of an instrument deserves a beast of a video, almost an hour in length, packed with details about the history of the instrument, how each part of the synth voice works, how to use all three together, the global and effects sections, and factory presets."

**NEW** Cherry Audio PS3300 // 3 polyphonic synths in a semi modular box

video upload by Starsky Carr

"This is one CRAZY synth!! 3 full polyphonic synths in one big box. Here's my review, demo and walkthrough of the Cherry Audio PS3300. It's a replica of the Korg of the same name from 1977. This is a great example of a unique and characterful synth from the days when they were figuring out how best to create and control the tones.

Each voice has a single oscillator, lowpass filter, ADSR envelope and 2 LFOs. The resonators are a great addition - 3 resonant BP filters per voice - gives a lush or crazy phasing effect.

Follow all this with Cherry Audios FX, and the scalable interface, MIDI control etc etc and you end up with something well worth picking up. Have a cheese sandwich for you dinner and pick this up instead of a pizza!"

LIVE @ EMEAPP FEAT. SCHOOL OF ROCK HOUSE BAND, FORT WASHINGTON, PA (6-28-23)


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.

INSIDE THE MIX: Richard Wright


video upload by EMEAPP

"Are you a fan of early Pink Floyd and their keyboardist, Richard Wright? We are too! Enjoy this deep look into instruments and techniques used by Rick in the early days of the band leading up to the time of their live-performance film release, Live At Pompeii. This includes the type of instruments he used on Obscured By Clouds, Atom Heart Mother, A Saucerful of Secrets and Meddle. We faithfully recreated his early setup and had musician Mike Kiker deliver a killer performance of their beloved song, Echoes."

OMBIENT: Live!@EMEAPP (4/22/23)


video upload by EMEAPP

"This was a fun night. On April 22, 2023 we held our first video shoot in our live studio space with an audience in attendance with Ombient and Electric Diamond on the bill.

Ombient (Mike Hunter) was the opening performer on the bill and in the space of 30 minutes, he took the entire room on an electronic sonic journey complete with custom projections by PYXL8R. Armed with his custom Synthesizers.com modular system, Koma Elektronik Komplex Sequencer, Rhodes Chroma, Oberheim Matrix-6, ARP 2600 re-issue and a slew of effects, Ombient's performance was ultimately a swirling, constantly evolving set reminiscent of artists such as Tangerine Dream and Ashra.

A big thank you to Ombient (Mike Hunter), PXYL8R (Ken Palmer) Electric Diamon (Stuart Diamond, Don Slepian and Karen Bentley Pollick) and to all of our volunteers for helping to make this night a well-oiled and enjoyable experience for all.

EMEAPP SONIC TEST DRIVE: STEINER-PARKER SYNTHACON Feat. DON SLEPIAN


video upload by EMEAPP

"That filter! Need we say more. The fabled Steiner-Parker Synthacon is a three oscillator beast of a portable mono-synth capable of immensely fat tones, is highly regarded for its tuning stability and is chock full of awesome control and modulation options. However, the star of the show is the Synthacon's peerless multi-mode LP/BP/HP which has cultivated an identity of its own and has achieved legendary status. Its a fantastic bit of electronic engineering and it truly behaves in a unique manner as compared to its contemporaries. Join Don Slepian as he takes a dive into the Sytnthacon and puts the filter through its paces."

video upload by EMEAPP

"A special instrument, a very very special instrument. The legendary ARP Pro-Soloist is definitely in a class all of its own as far as performance synthesizers go. The preset sounds are iconic across many different genres from prog rock to funk and the expressiveness of the keyboard interface is second to none. We alway keep one of these gems wired into our keyboard rig here at EMEAPP because of it's performance flexibility, unique sonic character and because its just plain fun to play! Join Don Slepian as he demonstrates different presets on this instrument as well as the supreme expressiveness of the keyboard's aftertouch action."

EMEAPP SONIC TEST DRIVE: KORG SYNTHE-BASS SB-100 Feat. DON SLEPIAN


video upload by EMEAPP

"This little gem has to be one of our favorite purpose-built performance synths here at EMEAPP. It is the KORG Synthe-Bass SB-100, first released in 1975. Ideal for live performance, the SB-100 is a single oscillator bass synthesizer monster which offers an extremely powerful low pass filter "traveler" as well as a plethora of wave forms and modifiers to choose from to create monstrously fat and punchy bass tones. In this video, electronic music pioneer Don Slepian will demonstrate the SB-100 and the range that this compact little box can cover."

video upload by EMEAPP

"Here for your viewing and listening pleasure is this colorful little gem from the later period of the original Moog company.The Opus 3 was their little orchestral monster which is comprised of three sections; strings, organ and brass. The layering and filtering capabilities of this instrument are stunning and it is excellent for some lush pads. Join Don Slepian in this demo of this unique little beast from perhaps the most well known and storied synthesizer manufacturer. It should also be noted that this instrument was designed by the late Herb Deutsch, Bob Moog's original collaborator and catalyst for the creation of the first Moog Modular system.

EMEAPP SONIC TEST DRIVE: RSF BLACKBOX Feat. DON SLEPIAN


video upload by EMEAPP

"Another rarity from the halls of EMEAPP, here we have the ultra-rare RSF Blackbox from the late 70s. While it doesn't look like much on the outside, it is capable of a pretty amazing task: it can turn a monosynth into a polysynth by using it's CV/gate output. Intended as a peripheral device for the RSF Kobol monosynth, the Blackbox is compatible with a plethora of other vintage monosynths. In this video, electronic music pioneer Don Slepian will demonstrate the Blackbox's capabilities as a stand-alone instrument.

EMEAPP SONIC TEST DRIVE: CASIO CZ-101 & CZ-1000 Feat. DON SLEPIAN


video upload by EMEAPP

"Tiny bit mighty, we feel that Casio synths often get overlooked. Not at EMEAPP, we have a soft spot for synths such as these. Here we have the Casio CZ-101, the first in a line of classic, affordable instruments for the working musician. The phase distortion engine of this 80s icon is capable of some fantastic tones and we have electronic music pioneer Don Slepian to demonstrate. As an added bonus, Don includes a demo of his personal Casio CZ-1000!"
