Original owner. Seriously underrated vintage additive synth with tons of real-time controls and classic programmable arpeggiator. Gently used only in a smoke and pet-free home recording studio. Fantastic sounds, amazing keyboard feel and action - really the nicest keys on a synth you will ever play.

Excellent working condition: all buttons, pots, keys, and controls work perfectly. All jacks/connectors are solid with no audio or midi issues. Display has slightly dimmed, but is still legible and bright with full contrast control.

Cosmetically it’s in excellent condition except on the left side of the keyboard, above the drive slot and pitch and modulation wheels, (see pic) there’s a small blemish/chip in the dark blue where it looks like something was dropped on it (I don’t remember what it was or when it happened). Additionally, further down, closer to the left edge of the keyboard, left of the Pitch Bend wheel is another mark that’s about the size of a pencil tip and barely visible. Hopefully, you can see from the pictures that these are really minor blemishes on an otherwise beautiful synth."

Controlling the the whole studio with a vintage Roland arranger

video upload by MR TUNA Music

"I LOVE ARRANGERS ⚡️⚡️ Maybe they are a little cheesy but I've got the classic 1993 Roland RA-95 connected to the whole studio through the Squarp Instruments Hapax sequencer & I am just having a blast controlling it all with the ROLI Lumi Keys 🙏

Just listen to that bass!

Prophet-6 ➡️ bass
OB-6 ➡️ back up chords
Juno-106 ➡️ more chords
System-8 ➡️ the lead
Jupiter-80 ➡️ drums"

Berlin School live performance at home - "Analog crabs"

video upload by Caught In Joy

"'Analog crabs' is my Berlin School electronic music performance from my latest album "La chica de la playa" out on Bandcamp:

Playing the analog synthesizers, modular drum machines and guitar pedals in a Berlin School music style is like embarking on an electronic journey through time and space. As your fingers dance across the synthesizer's lush, vintage-style keys, you unleash a sonic universe that harkens back to the iconic soundscapes of the 1970s pioneers like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and Jean-Michel Jarre.

I hope these analog warmth and organic textures will transport you to a sonic realm where pulsating sequencers guide your way through mysterious, cosmic landscapes on a rainy Berlin night.

All my recent songs are fully improvised and performed "dawlessly". Creating "dawless" electronic music in a home studio involves producing music without using a traditional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Instead, hardware synthesizers, modular synths and effects are used to create, sequence, and manipulate sounds directly. This approach can provide a hands-on, tactile experience and encourage creativity by relying on physical gear rather than a computer interface. It allows for a more immediate and intuitive workflow, with real-time control over parameters, resulting in a unique sonic character.

0:00:00 Intro with Moog Mavis, Prophet-10 and Moog Matriarch
0:07:16 Moog One solo
0:11:28 Moog Matriarch ending solo

Playing Moog One, Moog Matriarch, Moog Mavis, Moog DFAM and Prophet-10.

If you appreciate music that helps you unwind or just old-school electronic sounds crafted with analog synthesizers, explore my extensive collection of 20+ albums on Bandcamp."

Press release follows.

Advanced Synthesizer with Wavetable and Virtual Analog Engines, an Intuitive Sound Design Workflow, Expressive Hands-On Controls, Model Expansion Support, and More

Los Angeles, CA, Sept. 28, 2023 — Roland announces GAIA 2, an advanced synthesizer with a newly developed hybrid sound engine and a friendly panel layout that makes learning synthesis and exploring sound design easy and fun. Equipped with wavetable and virtual analog oscillators, interactive controls, 37 full-size keys, Model Expansion support, and other powerful features, GAIA 2 opens the door to an infinite universe of inspired creation.

GAIA 2’s diverse synthesis tools allow users to build familiar sounds and craft new voices never heard before. Reaching beyond previous designs, the wavetable oscillator can morph between multiple waveforms for everything from dramatic shifts to slowly evolving textures. Unique phase and shape modulation options are also available to distort waveforms and unleash cutting-edge textures with complex overtones. Complementing the wavetable oscillator are twin virtual analog oscillators, ready to reimagine past classics or sculpt the sounds of the future. From smooth tones reminiscent of vintage synths to edgy, biting leads to sci-fi soundscapes, GAIA 2 can do it.

GAIA 2 also supports Roland Model Expansions, which faithfully recreate iconic synthesizers from the company’s long history. With a dedicated button, users can instantly swap between the built-in sound engine and classics like the JUPITER-8 or JUNO-106. The SH-101 Model Expansion comes pre-installed, and many additional titles and accompanying Sound Packs are available on Roland Cloud.

GAIA 2’s logically organized panel encourages hands-on exploration and sonic discovery. The one-control-per-function layout and informative display enable instant programming without having to resort to creativity-killing menu diving. And with the streamlined knobs and white anodized aluminum panel, even the look is inspiring.

GAIA 2 features a touch-controlled Motional Pad that brings static sounds to life. Users can assign nearly any synth or effect parameter to each of the X/Y points and then morph between them by moving a finger on the pad. It’s also possible to record movements to create complex, modulated transformations.

The free-flowing sequencer in GAIA 2 lets users instantly capture their inspiration and realize their wildest visions. There’s also a cool Random Pattern feature to spark new ideas with spontaneous pattern creation.

GAIA 2 comes loaded with classic Roland effects to take sonic creations to the next level. Over 50 unique MFX types are available, plus a dedicated Chorus section for adding width and dimension. A powerful Reverb/Delay section features a new studio-grade Shimmer Reverb and many other high-quality effect types.

Via USB-C, GAIA 2 functions as an audio/MIDI interface for music production apps on a computer, smartphone, or tablet. The class-compliant connection is plug-and-play, with no driver installation needed. A USB Type-A port is also available for connecting a USB flash drive for data backup or a standard USB MIDI controller for extended operation.

GAIA 2 supports Roland Cloud Connect, an optional wireless adapter for browsing and downloading Roland Cloud content using a mobile device. A Roland Cloud Connect purchase also includes a year of Roland Cloud Pro membership with unlimited use of thousands of sounds, Model Expansions, and much more.

The optional CB-B37 Keyboard Bag for GAIA 2 provides durable, high-quality protection for the synthesizer while traveling and making music around town. This versatile bag also works with the JUPITER-Xm, legacy GAIA SH-01, and other 37-note keyboards.

Availability & Pricing

The Roland GAIA 2 is now available in the U.S. for $899.99.

Standard pad type poly sounds

Unusually Poly Sounds

Monophonic Synth Sounds

A mixture of Mono and Poly Sounds

Filmic / Epic ambience sounds

Rhythmic patterns, with a new sound on each key press.

Although Maximus can do traditional ‘pads’ it’s better suited to more unorthodox poly sounds. It excels also at unusual analogue loops and rhythms when it is played in cyclic mode. Have each voice set to a different type of sounds, and as you cycle through them you get very interesting patterns (melodic or otherwise).

Maximus does not have patch memory - just like the very first polysynths.

Every sound you create will be unique - the first of its kind ever to be produced. Your Maximus will never sound like anybody else’s. It will always be unique and yours.

Tom Carpenter is excited to introduce Maximus, an exciting new mega-polysynth with a design ethos truly from the dawn of analogue synths. It is more than a powerful analogue ‘workstation’ - it is also art, architecture, exquisite studio furniture.

Although we label this as a polysynth - it is so much more. We can’t think of a label to give this synth since its is so much more than that.

When you think of polysynth you think of flat synths with one set of controls that control all voices equally. By giving Maximus independent controls for every voice, you have more freedom to create unique styles of poly sounds impossible on traditional polysynths, whether they are hardware or software. You can dial up ‘traditional’ poly sounds (pads etc) or have something unimaginable different.

Because you can never dial up each voice completely identically, standard polys pads will sounds superbly vintage.

All the voice and modulation circuits are of course 100% analogue. We purposely steered away from digital, aside from of course the digital needed in MIDI and the mini-sequencers.

This synth is purely for those who want it just as it was in the 1970s - but new with parts still in production. For those who want a synth that could have been built in the 70s.

There are no gimmicks - this is pure synthesiser. A huge sound enclosed in a solid metal case wrapped in solid hardwood. No expense has been spared to bring this incredible machine to life.

Synthesisers like this only come around once in a decade, or possibly a generation.

ONDIOLINE Quick Oscillator Repair Job using Forgotten Futures Book

video upload by Vintage Keys Studio

"A brief explanation of an oscillator fault in the Ondioline. Resistors around the Oscillator valve (an ECC82) were all original and some had failed, causing a rise in pitch whenever a note was played.

Filmed and Badly Edited on a phone by Steve Christie, as Louisa was away on holiday. Steve hasn't had a holiday for 10 years.

Philicorda GM 751 Valve Organ from 1967

video upload by Vintage Keys Studio

"Steve Christie from Vintage Keys Studio demonstrates a fully working* Stereo Philips Philicorda GM 751 Organ in all its glory.

This organ came to our studio in need of repair and has been fully restored by Steve. It is a valve/transistor hybrid from 1967. Later models were solid state.

Comes with a LDR based swell pedal which attaches to the base of the organ via a DIN plug. It has two internal speakers that face out left (source signal) and out right (source signal / reverb switched) for a stereo effect.

The organ is mounted on a sturdy iron frame with attractive wooden supports, and comes with its own equally attractive music stand.

Valves: 8 x ECC83, 1 x ECL82,
Neon Lamps/Diodes: 5 x Z70U, 68 x ZA1001, 1 x ZZ1000
Transistors: 3 x AC125, 2 x AC128, 4 x AD149

This organ has been used in sessions for many years and continues to remain a reliable keyboard with a wonderful variety of sounds which can be modified using the 5 filters and their combinations, 3 organ registers, Vibrato circuit and Reverb (called 'Reverbeo') - on German models this is labelled 'Hall'

Steve and other session musicians from Vintage Keys are available to record this organ for you as a layer to add to your own project. Please contact us at for more details."

Demo in the listing previously posted here.

"Teisco Synthesizer 60F / S-60F Vintage Analog Monophonic Synthesizer, which was manufactured in the early '80s under license from Arp Instruments in Japan.

This little monophonic synth has acquired quite a reputation in the synth community, for great value for the money, analog sound quality and reliability. I used it in the studio for years, and it has never let me down.

All the controls, sliders, knobs, pitch bend and keys are 100% working. The sliders need a little cleaning I guess, as they are all a little grippy, but nothing worrying.

Unit is in very nice vintage condition. Works on 220V. Power cable included."

CFA-Sound DC-Zero - Vintage Synth for Kontakt

CFA Sound DC Zero Preset Showcase

video uploads by CFA-Sound

"Preset Showcase Video - explore some of the 175 presets, hear them in the aspect of genre-related demo tracks.

About DC-Zero Vintage Synth instrument for NI Kontakt:

The charming sound of an iconic retro synth, captured in detail - transforms your favorite sampler into a powerful synth platform.

Introducing DC-ZERO – a vintage synth for Native Instruments Kontakt. Inspired by an iconic synthesizer of the 80s, known for the charming sound of its DCOs, the distinctive and fat chorus, and of course, its easy-to-use workflow.

As the first part of this new synthesizer theme product line for Kontakt “Fusion series” – as the name might suggest – the fusion of wavetables and multisamples, combining both paths of sound generation together as a powerful synergy, allowing more creative space and more sound design features and possibilities for the user, as previous synthesizer sample libraries for Kontakt had to offer.

The 175 included presets have been crafted with love for details, covering basic sounds as you would suspect from a classic analog synth, up to more cinematic pad sounds using the full load of the effect rack and fitting in a high variety of genres like synth-wave, deep house, and techno. In detail the factory presets contains 44 Bass, 11 Chords, 11 Drums, 12 FX, 17 Keys, 28 Lead, 30 Pad, and 22 Pluck sounds.

Capturing the warm analog sound of this well-known icon, by using Kontakt`s powerful sampler engine, in synergy with its new wavetable engine – DC-ZERO even captures the pulse-width modulation of its paragon. Giving you, more sonic freedom in the sound design process than “just multisamnples”. Forming a compact instrument with focus on an easy-to-use workflow like known from analog synthesizers. Designed with a similar layout, as you surely know from modular systems – the core synthesizer module is complemented by additional tools like the voice mode for monophonic and polyphonic voicing and predefined chords. Output control module with stereo width, limiter, and fx rack routing.

The effect rack is packed with Kontakt`s studio-grade sound processing tools, featuring a lofi-drive module: transistor drive and bit crusher in one box. Followed by the Choral chorus and Phasis phaser effects. For more dynamic processing and more saturation, the Supercharger GT as a tube compressor gives you all you need for more fine-tuning, along with the Solid-G equalizer. Finalized with the outstanding Replika delay and the hybrid reverb module. All the effects have been kept in a reduced amount of controls, to keep the workflow focused on the essential core controls and not distract your creativity with too many controls or unnecessary menu-diving. All controls are always in sight, always a smooth and comfortable workflow."

BUENA PARK, Calif. (April 3, 2023) - Today, Yamaha releases a new OS update for the YC Stage Keyboard line. OS v1.3 includes new sounds, features and workflow enhancements that make the YC Series even more versatile.

New sounds lead the way in YC OS v1.3. An expressive Hamburg Grand, intimate Felt Piano from the CP Series, and an all-new CP80 sampled from the Yamaha Synth Space collection have been added. Also, the invaluable YamahaSynth IdeaScale community requested the CP80 Voice which delivers the expressive bite you would expect from this classic stage piano.

Carefully curated by our London R&D team, you’ll find 16 classic DX7 basses, brass and pads and 16 modern FM sounds for contemporary genres.

The new features added in OS v1.3 improve control and workflow. Additionally, contributions from the customer-driven YamahaSynth IdeaScale community are noted:

Vibrato and Chorus for FM Organs: Vibrato and Chorus effects are now available for FM Organs, and the F2 and F3 types match the classic effects found in vintage 60s combo organs (YamahaSynth IdeaScale).

Pan to Parts Settings: Freely adjust pan for each Part separately for greater stereo mix flexibility. (YamahaSynth IdeaScale).

A/B Parameter Link Function: Press and hold the Keys A/B button and you’ll get control of Volume, Tone, Filter/EG and Effect settings for both Parts simultaneously. Great for controlling both Parts when set up in a Split or Layer.

Rotary Speed Hold: Before OS v1.3, Rotary Speaker speed settings were saved in the Live Set. This new setting allows you to keep the Rotary Speaker speed settings the same regardless of the Live Set. Studio Rotary Speaker Type Default: All organ Live Set sounds using the Rotary Speaker effect now default to the Studio type introduced in OS v1.2.

Crumar Orchestrator

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

via this auction

"Italian made Vintage 70s Crumar Orchestrator String Machine / Polyphonic Synthesizer. It’s in good condition with normal wear. It was recently professionally deep cleaned internally and externally and serviced. I think you will be surprised by how incredible this keyboard plays and sounds in person.

One of the richest and lushest sounding 70s string machines ever made in part to its officially licensed Moog Filter on its brass section. It can sound very very similar to the legendary Arp / Eminent Solina and even Arp Omni (Joy Division Synth) but has more tricks up its sleeves.

The Crumar Orchestrator is one of Jonny Greenwood's favorite keyboards and it's been used on a ton of Radiohead songs both in the studio and live. It’s been used by a bunch of other artists as well to this day due to its warm and immediately nostalgic sounds.

Everything works perfectly except the top octave of black keys. They work perfectly for the Violin, Cello and Brass sounds (the best sounds) but currently don't trigger the Piano and Clavich sounds on keys F#4, G#4, A#5, C#5 and D#5. All of the white keys up there work as they should. All of the other keys work as they should. It doesn't come with the lid. "
