"Previous owner mentions it was serviced and recapped. We noticed the glass on the screen appears to be a little loose but this does not effect operation. Otherwise it's tested and fully functional. Screen is bright and easy to read. This one has Curtis CEM 3389 which would make it a Rev A (as opposed to a later Rev B version with Curtis CEM 3387 chips). Some say the Rev A is the better sounding version. Classic Waldorf rack synthesizer."

Demo in the listing previously posted here.

"The German-made Hartmann Neuron is a polyphonic synthesizer that broke new ground using a new form of synthesis and sound-modeling they say was based on technology found in neural networks. What the Neuron actually does is it analyzes audio files (samples) and creates digital computer models of these sounds which can then be re-synthesized and processed using the extensive amount of on-board data-wheels and joysticks with control of more 'musical' sonic aspects such as instrument shape, size and acoustic behavior. The joysticks allow for real-time tweaking of up to three parameters at once - 3D modeling in a true 5.1 surround sound environment."

"The synth was brought back to 100% operating condition. The only issue at the time and which still exists is a couple of segments of the display not illuminating, however it is still fully legible."

"Fully functional and excellent sounding 1980s Sequential Circuits Prelude synthesizer. I have used this synth on many records and it has some great sounds. Surprisingly versatile with the built in equalizer and the ability to play multiple patches at once by pressing the different patch selection buttons at the same time.

A few switch caps missing but in otherwise good condition."

"This is the new addition to my dawless setup, I really needed a 303 to make some acid basslines. VSTs out there didn't satisfy my taste, once I tried this with my hands I fell in love!"

One of my favorite tracks from the german group Rammstein
'Ich Will' from the album 'Mutter' (2001)
produced by Rammstein

Featured the E-MU Emax (1986) Sampling Synthesizer (1986)

This cover song series contains my own recreations of my favourite songs from the last 50 years. The original music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I recreate tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these tracks.
My intention is not to create covers that sound exactly like the original (if you want to hear identical sounds, please listen the original). It's more of an inspiration with my sounds from the old synthesizers from the past and of course the great appreciation for the original performers and producers."

30 modular systems in a multi-instrument and sequence designer

Quadra Modular is a powerful 4-part multi-instrument and sequence designer, ideal for the creation of dynamic, rhythmic, and evolving sequences utilizing an incredible selection of patches created on a wide range of modular synthesizers, from vintage to modern, stand-alone to fully customized and purpose-built systems. We approached recording these beasts as if they were acoustic instruments, creating discrete velocity layers and round-robins in order to capture their organic soul.

Quadra is a versatile instrument, capable of a wide range of sounds and uses from standard fare instrumentation to evolving, complex, and adaptive progressions and harmonizations that can be morphed and performed in numerous ways to suit the needs of your production. With a masterful selection of hundreds of professionally designed presets, Quadra offers incredible sound quality and near endless inspiration on-demand.

Quadra leverages a powerful instrument selection, deep factory library, focused and intuitive workflow, and expressive performance controls to deliver cinematic sound quality and near endless musical inspiration.

Curated Instrument Selection
Quadra provides 4 robust instrument layers that can be used together to create striking and evocative performances. Each layer can be assigned from a selection of 30 multi-sampled sources including massive stand-alone systems like the Colossus, to popular small format systems like eurorack.

At the heart of each of Quadra's instrument layers is a powerful, multimode 64-step sequencer with MIDI effects, allowing you to quickly add rhythmic grooves, create arpeggiator sequences, add harmonies, and even quantize the incoming notes to specific scales. Choose a global rate, gate length, and max velocity, then customize your sequence with per-step velocity, link, harmonization, pitch offset, octave offset, gate, step repeat and panning. Save your patterns to disk as presets to share, or use the handy "copy-to" button to quickly duplicate your finished sequence from one layer to another.

Quadra includes a number of MIDI effect modules that allow you to embellish and augment your sequences in creative ways, including Euclidean Emphasis which adds rhythmic accents, MIDI Delay, Random, and Pitch Drift which enrich your sequence, and a scale quantizer that allows you to snap all notes to a scale of your choosing. You can even drag-and-drop the modified sequences as MIDI into a track of your DAW.
