"Patch Point is producing 100 Fénix II PP analog modular synthesizers in small batches.

The first batch is 30, and there are 14 left available.

The Fénix II PP is a direct descendant of the Fénix II in collaboration with the designer, Mr. Bert Vermuelen of the original Synton design team.

It is a fully analog synthesizer, with the same components as the original Fénix II, with some upgrades.

VCF3 - Formant Filter - a new modern design using chips instead of vactrols which allows for voltage controlled resonance and an expanded frequency range.

VCF4 - LPG - a new modern design using chips instead of vactrols which allows for an expanded frequency range, and quicker response, and more accurate control of the length parameter.

Delay - The Delay is now a dual delay with a 3rd switch position. delay 1, delay 2, or in the middle both delays mixed! with the additional jack of a second frequency parameter for the 2nd delay. You can now CV control both delays pitches with a separate jack.

3 VCO’s, 3 different VCO's ( Inputs CV, FM, PWM, Sync e.o, Output square, triagle, sawtooth and some has puls, sub, sine e.o) )

4 different VCF´s ( SVF, 24dB Lp, BPF, 12dB Lp). ( Input CV modulation, SVF has Q-CV control

3 EGR and 4 VCA’s and 5 LFO’s. (Many modules are voltage controlled)

7 Mixers ( 3 audio mixers and 4 DC-Audio mixers).

1 Phaser and 1 Delay (BDD). ( off course voltage controlled)

1 8 step analog sequencer with own clock.

1 Waveshapers, 1 wavemultiplier and 1 full wave rectifier. ( voltage controlled, except for the rectifier )

1 CPR, 1 S&H, 1 Gate delay, 1 Ringmodulator, 1 Slew limiter, 1 fixed +/- 5volt output.

1 Analog noise and 1 Digital noise. ( Digital noise voltage controlled

The Toy Sampler That Inspired Generations of Musicians

video upload by HAINBACH

"The Casio SK-1 was my very first electronic music instrument that allowed for some degree of experimentation. Its crunchy 8BIT sound got me hooked in a way that shaped my entire music career. 25 years later and with a bunch of SK-1 inspired instruments incoming on Kickstarter, I wanted to revisit this beautifully crappy sampler.

The LoFi Magic of a Scottish Tape Drum Machine

video upload by HAINBACH

"The Bandmaster Powerhouse is a drum machine unlike any other: it uses 8-Track tape recordings of drum and percussion loops to play back 'Funky Beat', 'Modern Waltz' and 'Disco' patterns. Made by GR International in Perth, Scotland in the 1970s, only few survive and the tapes are even rarer. The warble and flutter, especially when pitched down, is horrible from a technical perspective, but it adds layers of texture that are a dream come true for the rare groove enthusiast."

You can find addtional demos here and here.

An Avant-Garde Synthesizer From 1960s East Germany

video upload by HAINBACH

"The Subharchord is a very rare electronic instrument from East Germany, made in the early sixties. At that time, the international music world was excited by the new electronic music coming from places like the WDR Studio in Cologne. As the GDR sought to lead over the West in all aspects, they established the „Labor für Akustisch-Musikalische Grenzprobleme“ (English: Laboratory for Problems at the Acoustics/Music Interface) to develop advanced electronic sound production. There the Subharchord was created by Ernst Schreiber as the lead engineer, while the striking look was designed by Gunter Wächtler. From the beginning it faced ideological concerns, which should later spell its doom. Thanks to the Elektro-Akustische Studio at ADK Berlin I got to explore it."

The Soothing Ambient And Microtonal Depths of a Decopunk Synthesizer

video upload by HAINBACH

"This is the Soma Terra, a microtonal digital synthesizer released just this year. Soma send it to me a while back for feedback, but I only got to play it now (sorry Vlad), as I felt this instruments deserves time and space to learn. And I was rewarded. Terra is a digital synthesizer in a shape that seems archaic, like a Decopunk harp straight from Bioshock. It has an interface that takes the touch keyboard experiments that Don Buchla pioneered further, making for a very responsive instrument. It uses specially coated sensor to translate touch into control. Terra allows a while range of tones, from soothing ambient to screaming microtonal noise, with an impressive range of expression. But it has its quirks that relate to directly to the minimalism of its design."

The Massive Sound Of An Experimental Soviet Drum Machine

video upload by HAINBACH

This appears to be the first post to feature the RMIF ES-2-5.

"The RMIF ES-2-5 is an experimental drum machine that was made in Riga, Latvia, in the last days of the Soviet Union (1991). It was an attempt at re-creating the Roland TR-808, but was hampered by the lack of microchip technology available. RMIF abandoned the project after only a testing run of 30 units where made. One rare surviving example found its way to my studio in a sorry state. I had it restored to better then new condition, as I feel it is a piece of instrument history. And it sounds so very very heavy and melancholic.

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 Enchanting LoFi Textures Of An Optical Sound Sampler

video upload by HAINBACH

"Listen to the 'Talentmaker Takes' EP on my bandcamp:

The Chilton Talentmaker is one of the first samplers, or rather loop players. Like the slightly more famous Mellotron, it allows playback of recorded instruments, but it can play them back as loops. This allows for all kind of endless playback of music, from 'German Band' and 'Polka Band' to 'Waltz Guitar', made famous through Michel Gondry's 'Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless mind' soundtrack.

The Chilton and its close relatives, the Optigan and Orchestron, were used by Kraftwerk, David Lynch, Tom Waits, The Clash and many more."

"Giallo Horror Track with the Crumar Spirit re-issue #synthesizer"

Crumar Spirit - Bob Moog's Italian Synthesizer Reborn

video upload by HAINBACH

I will put up a follow-up post when this goes live, and/or you can bookmark this post and check back as well. The Crumar Spirit is back.

"My friends from @museodelsynthmarchigiano1717, the Italian synthesizer museum, invited me again to visit them in Italy. This time, they had something new and old to show me: a faithful re-creation of the rare Bob Moog designed Crumar Spirit mono synthesizer. They teamed up with Crumar to bring this little known instrument back to life, staying as close to the original as possible. In this video I demo the synth and tell the story of how it came about."

According to Crumar in the video, the new Crumar Spirit will be limited to 100 units, but polyphonic and desktop versions might be coming.

Elka Soloist 505 SN 2761

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"Rare little Italian beauty, The Solist 505. The Elka Solist 505 was a monophonic lead synthesizer, preset based with variations for added performance. It provided a nice alternative to the Moog Satellite ARP Pro Soloist. It had 11 presets, all which could be changed with freq/res, attack/release, vibrato and portamento. Notably, it contained the famous Moog ladder filter.

A feature of the Soloist 505 is that it has the famous Moog Ladder Filter onboard. Manufacturers installed the components to make the Ladder Filter before Moog Music imposed a patent on it's use in non Moog instruments."

Update: see Hainbach's recent video with one here.

Atomizing Acoustic Drums With Nuclear Research Equipment | Loop Pack

video upload by HAINBACH

"I wanted to spend time with an old friend of mine, who happens to be an excellent drummer. So I posed an experiment for us: what happens if you run acoustic drums into vintage nuclear research instruments? Spoiler: it sounds devastating! We liked the result so much that we made it into a 'Nuclear Drum Loops' pack, complete with single samples. Its ideal in any genre where you want something rough and different for your drums. Available now on"

DYNO / testing out the Alesis QUADRAVERB / JORANALOGUE and co / eurorack

video upload by BRiES

"I'm testing out a newly aqcuired Alesis Quadraverb which - together with the Lexicon MPX500 - will take care of the spaciousness from now on.

The Joranalogue Audio Design modules take care of most of the gating and transposing of the random sequence. I've found BIAS2 to be a really versatile little unit, in this patch I used the bottom half as a precision adder for pitch and the top part I'm using to route -2.5V to STEP 8 so it only generates negative CV. ORBIT 3 modulates a filter and PIVOT 2 which routes a saw or alternatively a triangle to DELAY 1. One GENERATE 3 is on modulation duty for the time parameter of DELAY 1.
ROUTE 4 is an awesome addition to any sequence: it let's you automate (or randomize) gating and transposing of several sequences. FILTER8 is used as a the final filter in the chain (instead of using a VCA).

I'm pretty pleased with the verbs on the QUADRAVERB. Hainbach was right about this unit, it does 'sit' well in the mix."
