CON·VER·GENCE [ MU Modular session w/ Acidlab Bassline3 + Drumatix ]


"Most of the sound from the modular system is coming from the Freestate FX adapted BRAIDS (Macro Digital Oscillator) and the Synthetic Sound Labs adapted PLAITS module they call Woven Spirits. Really cool stuff, with the Mankato filter modulated by a sample & hold."

The Modular Remedy - Dub Techno Session

"Using an MU modular system to create some dub techno. No drum machine involved."

1975 "Pete's ARP Opera" Ad

via Retro Synth Ads where you'll find the full write-up.

"ARP 'Pete's ARP Opera' black and white advertisement from the June 5, 1975 issue of Downbeat magazine."

Update via Steve Hofer in the comments: "From $995", to put that in perspective $995 in 1975 dollars would be $4,812.79 in 2020 dollars. Can you imagine a brand-wide synth ad "From $4,812.79"?

ROLAND SYSTEM-100 MODEL 101 Analog Synthesizer SN 480653

"Note: All Model 101 key contacts we have seen in recent times have been worn out to some degree. This unit is probably no exception. What this means is that, even after a proper cleaning, keys may sometimes re-trigger. If this bothers you, we recommend using an external CV and gate source such as another keyboard, a MIDI to CV converter, or a CV gate sequencer.

Like nearly all the high end vintage analog synths we sell, this item has been METICULOUSLY disassembled, cleaned inside and out, FULLY serviced by professionals who’ve been servicing and selling vintage synths for more than the last 2 decades, and systematically tested multiple times over a long period to ensure it’s working exactly as it should. No BS. No ebay surprises. We’re perfectionists and don’t cut corners. Although this instrument came to us in relatively good shape, we want our items to be better than the rest and invested *many* hours of tech time plus parts costs to fully overhaul this unit so it would be clean, working like new again and as reliable as possible for its next owner. This was a serious investment of time, love, and money, and was definitely worth the effort and is of course reflected in the higher than usual price. If you’re looking for a great sounding example of this model that works just like it should without needing to invest hundreds or thousands of dollars in tech fees and waiting from weeks to years, this one should make you very happy."

All sounds are generated in realtime without the use of any samples with the same endless modulation possibilities like the hardware and useful additional features like the calibration section that can make the filter scream.
