video upload by Painted Blue

"Super duper amateur demonstration of a early 1980s era analog drum machine is a super sweet blue.

There's another slightly more advanced gray version under the same name that LookMumNoComputer/THIS MUSEUM IS (NOT) OBSOLETE covered: [posted here] But it doesn't look half way as sweet.

I uploaded a high res scan of the box and instruction manual here: https://archive.org/details/sound-mas..."

8BitM8 - Hardware Bit Crusher with Arcade Button


Published on Jun 4, 2020 midierror
Update: Re-Published on Jun 5, 2020


via tindie

"The 8BitM8 is a brand new bit-crusher pedal inspired by the tonal qualities of vintage samplers, MPCs and the love of lo-fi sounds. It comes hand made in a rugged metal enclosure packed with high quality components which include a genuine arcade button.

Hardware bit crushers are hard to come by and are often simply 'sample rate reducers' without any effect on the number of bits. The 8BitM8 is a fully digital bit crusher with settings for 4, 6 and 8-Bit - meaning the sounds of early samplers, lofi keyboards and digital effect units at your fingertips.

Rossum Electro-Music Announces 35th Anniversary SP-1200


Rossum Electro-Music 35th Anniversary SP-1200 Renovation Published on Jan 16, 2020 Rossum Electro-Music


"This year marks the 35th anniversary of the introduction of E-mu System’s iconic 'SP' sampling percussion system, instruments that have become emblematic of the golden age of hip hop creativity. To mark this milestone, Dave Rossum (the co-founder of E-mu Systems) and the team at Rossum Electro-Music are creating an extremely limited number of 'renovated' SP-1200s.

Beginning with an original SP-1200, Dave and the team strip it down and rebuild it into a 'better-than-new' example of the classic sampling percussion system. It is then tested and calibrated to guarantee that it
provides the exact sonic character that has made the SP drum machines musical legends for 35 years (and counting).

The Rossum Electro-Music 35th Anniversary SP-1200 renovations include:

– A new 3.5″ disk drive and SD card floppy emulator integrated into the original SP-1200 software by Dave Rossum

– Manual filter cutoff frequency control sliders for the SSM 2044 analog filters for channels 1 and 2 added to the rear panel

– A new metal chassis

– A new panel overlay

– The top shell restored and painted 'SP Grey.'

– A new power supply with locking connector (and cool operation)

– A new LCD display with adjustable brightness and a selectable red, blue, or green color LED backlight

– All new play buttons

– All new programming buttons

– All new 1/4” and MIDI jacks

– All electrolytic and tantalum capacitors replaced with high-reliability ceramic or aluminum-poly caps

– All rotary potentiometers replaced with million cycle lifetime pots and installed with new knurled black metal knobs

– All slide potentiometers replaced with 200,000 cycle lifetime sliders and installed with new slider knobs

– All original trimmers replaced with 20-turn versions and precisely calibrated

– New rubber feet

– An individualized Dave Rossum signature plaque

– A dust-proof, crush-proof, lockable Pelican™ brand case with press-and pull latches, wheels, and an extendable handle.

– Full testing and calibration by Rossum Electro-Music

Availability

35th Anniversary SP-1200s are available directly from Rossum Electro-Music for US$7500.00.

Because the number of 35th Anniversary SP-1200s built will be limited by the availability of original SP-1200s, that number is likely to be extremely small. If you are interested in purchasing one, please fill out the wait list application you’ll find at the tab at the top of this page.

The 35th Anniversary SP-1200 is solely a product of Rossum Electro-Music LLC. Neither E-mu Systems nor Creative Labs participated in its production, and cannot be held responsible for this product."

KVgear Vixen Mixer for Korg Volcas Now on Kicktarter


Published on Oct 4, 2017 Mike Rafferty

"Demonstration of prototype KVgear Vixen mixer. All audio was recorded directly from the headphone output of the Vixen into the video camera. Outboard effects on Aux 1 and Aux 2 of the mixer are Strymon Dig dual delay (my favorite!) and Strymon BigSky. For more information see kvgear.com/products/vixen-mixer"


via Kickstarter

"This is the mixer Volca lovers have been wanting for years: 8 audio channels, panning, mutes, 2 aux sends/returns, and onboard power for 8 Volcas. It can be powered by batteries or the included AC power adapter. All this fits into the footprint of a single Volca!

The images below are of the special limited edition blue version. The standard version will be black. See more info at the bottom of this page.

The Vixen has 3.5 mm (1/8") mini jacks on each audio channel for easy connection to small synths without the need for adapters. Your adapter-less existence continues as you connect to/from external effects boxes and monitors through standard 6.35 mm (1/4") jacks.

Visibility is important, whether you're in a dimly lit studio or outdoors in the sun. All knobs on the Vixen have painted indicator lines. Graphics on the control panel are crisp, clear and as large as possible. The translucent top panel allows LEDs to be visible for Mute, Power, and VU meters.

The Vixen has the same footprint as a Volca, allowing it to fit into most Volca stands and racks. KVgear stands such as the Lobe V3 and V4, Volc 45-2, -3, and -4, and Ramp Racks (3 sizes) are perfect matches for the Vixen.

The Vixen can be powered by any of three sources: external AC mains power supply (included), internal AA batteries (batteries not included), or an external mega battery that you provide. All synths connected to the power hub (using optional power cables) can draw power directly from the Vixen, eliminating piles of batteries or wall warts.

Internal battery compartment for 6 AA batteries that you provide.
High capacity, rechargeable external 9 VDC battery attached to the power input jack on the Vixen. You will need an adapter plug with a 5.5 x 2.1 mm barrel plug. Depending upon demand, KVgear might produce an adapter plug.

Moog Rogue Analog Synth SN 8830 with Mods

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

via this auction

"The synth works perfectly, I've never had any issues with it. I bought it refurbished from Switched On Electronics store in Austin TX. At the time of purchase, it had been previously outfitted with 3 modifications:

1. The first one is an upgraded power cable. Both longer and sturdier than the original (or so I am told).
2. The second mod is an octave switch located to the left of the keyboard. The oscillators within the synth have an octave controller themselves, but this one adds versatility in functionality as well as tonality.
3. The third mod is an additional filter located opposite the aforementioned octave switch, to the right of the keyboard. It is singularly controlled but one blue knob. I have no information on the specifics of this extra filter, but once you start playing with it, it can be pretty cool.

There is a small blue symbol painted to the right of the keys. No big deal, I'm sure it could be removed with little trouble, if so inclined."

Oberheim OB-12 Virtual Analog Synthesizer with Custom Blue Buchla Style Knobs

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

via this auction

"Oberheim ob 12 for sale in fairly good condition complete with manual and a flight case that it has been stored in when not in use. Few marks on ends and small dink on face underneath the high/6k graphic slider - see photo's. Display light flickers every now and again and sometimes goes off but comes back on again when synth next on - new display unit for sale on E-bay -otherwise all working."

An interesting side note is you can see the side panels are grey painted wood. I have an OB-12 and I swear on mine the grey panels feel plastic/synthetic. I obviously don't want to scratch it to check. The undersides have a gap that that make the panels thin enough to dig into your fingers when moving. If you have an OB-12 I'd be curious to know what yours are like.

Another interesting side note regarding the Buchla style knobs is I believe there were only two Oberheim synths after the original company folded. The Gibson Oberheim OB-Mx co-designed by Don Buchla and the Viscount Oberheim OB-12.

It does look nice with the blue knobs. It reminds me I am going to likely need new knobs for my XTk. The originals are beginning to break down and feel sticky.

Custom Painted Roland Juno-106

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

via this auction

"This Juno 106 was completely overhauled by the Synthspa: voice chip repair, battery holder change, blue LEDs with light bender, power supply recap, and loaded it with some of the best Juno 106 patches around.

Once I had it back I had another company, Dick Malibu do a fantastic paint job on it. This is real paint--not a sticker job.

Condition-wise it looks near perfect. If you look very closely you can see a few blemished and some the touch up work, but from a standing distance the body looks near perfect!"

Modular Synth Jam w Kaleidoloop


Published on Aug 5, 2014 ISOTROPOSPHERE

"DFMZ modular synth jam with Critter and Guitari Kaleidoloop.

This is a little tribute of sorts to the modular synth video posting frenzy known as Ebotronix and his channel.

Initial sounds are from the Kaleidoloop (blue box with stickers all over it) then I add the Melody Mill (seq controlling oscillator) which goes to the Rare waves formant filter. Various other low groans and sequences are being generated with the modular including the steel type drum sounds.

Sort of a video diary of the current state of the DFMZ studio modular and the selection of module within the two main large cabinets and two skiffs up front. All cases built by me and painted in an homage to the Technosaurus design.

Not appearing here but in other videos are my two suitcase modular synths also built by me, housing eurorack modules and the Technosaurus small wonders series complete. I dub the Technosaurus suitcase the Technosaurus 2100 for the chrome numbers on the faceplate designating the specific synths.

Most of what the Kaleidoloop is generating are samples from a session with my circuit bent TI Speak and Spell. The K-loop is running through the samples as in start mode and is set to normal (unchanged), original sample pitch.

Enjoy!!! Visit the Ebotronix channel for cool modular and vintage equipment jams."

WALDORF MICROWAVE 1 Rev A

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

via this auction

"WALDORF MICROWAVE 1 Rev A... with CEM 3389 and OS 2.0..."

via the Waldorf-User FAQ:

"Q: What different microwave I versions are known?

A: Rev A:
- frontpanel dark metalic blue, not painted, anodized metal
- rotary encoder has 52 ticks per revolution, has rippled, metal shaft with slot
- uses Curtis CEM 3389
- LCD has black characters on green background
- case is black


Rev B:
- frontpanel is made from Nextel, gray-blue, silkscreening blurry, rubs off
- high quality red dial
- rotary encoder has 24 ticks per revolution, has even, flattened plastic shaft
- uses Curtis CEM 3387
- LCD has green characters on black background
- case is grey

I assume that the change from Rev A to Rev B was not done by a step-function, so
there could be mixtures of all the attributes...

sonically they are nearly the same. The change of the filter didn't changed the microWave sound that much. And although the older version used the same Curtis filter chip as the big Waldorf WAVE, the sound is totally different.

There is also a single microWave with a chrome front plate (and a spare front plate like this in the hands of an ex-Waldorf employee). And the 99 last microWaves build came named "the mean green machine" with a green front plate and some spikes to put the unit on the shelf. Also included was a document in the look of a contract. It said you are not allowed to play folk music and that you have to feed the mean green MW I with all available software upgrades."
