A short overview and demonstration of the A-111-1 and Pulse width modulation. Sound and Video by Raul Pena.
This video demonstrates the sound of the vintage Roland Pro-Mars monophonic analog synthesizer. Enjoy!
The ProMars Compuphonic was unique largely in part due to its introduction of microprocessor control, hence the term, “Compuphonic.” It used an Intel 8048 processor to control the all-analog VCOs, VCAs, and VCFs. This also allowed it to store patches, making it one of the early few analog synthesizers that had patch memory.
The ProMars CompuPhonic has 10 preset sounds and 10 user programmable patches. The preset sounds include Bass, String, Clavi, Piano, Voice, Trombone, Sax, Trumpet, Synth I and Synth II. A very standard and well laid out set of knobs, sliders and edit controls give you the power to create some really cool sounds.
Designed as a partner to the polyphonic Jupiter-4, the ProMars is often considered a monophonic version of the Jupiter 4. However, whereas the Jupiter 4 had only one oscillator per voice, the ProMars features two oscillators (that can be de-tuned). Also found onboard are a nice VCF (filter) with its own ADSR, a typical VCA envelope section, a nice LFO and a pitch/mod wheel that can effect the LFO, VCF or VCA. It even has a noise generator. Nice wood end caps add to its vintage appeal as well.
Factory demo songs from the Yamaha FS1r synthesizer recorded direct with no effects.
The FS1r is the most advanced FM synthesizer ever released by Yamaha. Not only does it exceed the capabilities of previous hardware by 2 operators with its 8-operator FM engine, it also includes formant synthesis, which can be use to create sounds much like the Human voice.
Though it was not well-regarded when it was launched, its unmatched hardware capabilities make it a very sought-after piece of equipment.

2015 Dekad single taken from forthcoming album A Perfect Picture [BDMCD26]
Limited edition Poladroid Extended CD available now!
Dekad is back with a new single, “Poladroid”, taken from the forth coming album “A Perfect Picture” due for September 2015. “Poladroid” turned out to be a typical Dekad track like “Dive” or “So sorry”, but with a new twist due to the co-production with Foretaste’s XY. Noticeable track on the single: “Ta Vie” – not to be included on the album – the first Dekad track sung in French.
The single is out in 2 versions, a normal version and an extended version.

PreSonus has announced it is shipping Studio One 3, the most significant update to its powerful, easy to use digital audio workstation.
Available in Artist and Professional editions, version 3 adds true innovations in song arranging and experimentation, as well as inspiring new ways to craft unique and evocative sounds. In addition, Studio One 3 opens users to new ways to control and mix within the application as the first DAW to offer a dual platform (Mac and Windows), multi-touch interface. Furthermore, Studio One 3 Professional users now have the freedom to create away from the desk through Studio One Remote for iPad. The new Studio One promises to look as good as it feels, with a sleek, modern, configurable UI for high-resolution displays.
Innovations in arranging and experimentation
Studio One 3 Professional introduces the Arranger Track, which makes it easy to build and rearrange songs, letting you copy or move entire song sections with simple drag-and-drop. It has its own Track Inspector that shows all sections of the song, which also doubles as a quick navigation tool for your song.
Unique Scratch Pads, also in Studio One Professional, provide an independent parallel timeline that lets you safely experiment on alternate ideas without jeopardizing arrangements. Simply drag Arranger sections, individual content, or entire songs into the Scratch Pad, make edits, then drag it back to your main song. Unlimited Scratch Pads can be saved with your project, saving you the trouble of numerous alternate song files.
The updated Browser, found in both Artist and Professional, makes it easier than ever to find the content you’re looking for, with tag-based “musical” search. You can now search for loops, samples, and presets by typing keywords like “genre” and “instrument” or by filtering content by selecting tags. The Browser also now has an integrated Cloud tab to access additional content online.
New ways to craft unique sounds
Extended FX Chains, new in the Professional version, provide new ways to build complex, multi-dimensional sounds by chaining and combining effects plug-ins in serial, in parallel by channel, or by frequency with up to five splits.
Also new in Professional, Multi Instruments allow you to combine multiple instruments as layers or splits in a single Instrument Track and play them like one instrument. Further dimensions can be added to a sound by using Note FX on individual Instruments layers within a Multi Instrument.
Note FX is a new plug-in type introduced in Studio One 3 that adds life to Instrument tracks by processing their note data. The four Note FX included with Studio One 3 Professional are Arpeggiator, Chorder, Repeater, and Input Filter.
Each console channel and Multi Instrument in Studio One Professional now offers Macro Controls, which allow individual instrument or plug-in parameters to be assigned to control knobs, switches, and X/Y pads for easy access. Multiple parameters can be assigned to the same control with independent settings for range/polarity/curve.
Studio One version 3 features a powerful new instrument engine that drives two new instruments.
Mai Tai is a polyphonic analog modeling synth for modern electro and bass sounds. Mai Tai’s sounds can change character and produce drastic morphing changes and unique timbres. Its Multimode filter offers sounds ranging from vintage analog (a la Moog or Oberheim) to state-of-the-art, zero-delay feedback filters. Mai Tai’s oscillators and LFOs have a free-run option, like an analog synth. And you can build enormously complex sounds with modular-synth-style operation through Mai Tai’s 16-stage modulation matrix.
Presence XT is an expandable, full-featured sampler with a comprehensive sample library that covers all the bases. It offers disk streaming for large samples, and many sounds utilize articulation key-switching, scripting, and custom controls for unique sound parameters. Studio One 3 Professional includes a 14 GB sound library for Presence XT and can read popular sampler formats, including EXS, Kontakt, Giga, and SoundFont without conversion.
There are over 70 new features and updates included in the Studio One version 3 upgrade. Some of the more significant updates include:
- Hands-on editing, mixing, and arranging via Mac and PC multi-touch displays
- Customizable high DPI user interface
- Studio One Remote for iPad® control
- AudioBend time and pitch manipulation updated with élastiquePRO 3 algorithms
- Rotor and Bitcrusher audio effects
- Automation curves
- 1:1 Track view/console sync
- Step recording
- Smart, definable Alternate tool
- Context-sensitive help, documentation, and tool-tips
Studio One 3 is now available in Artist and Professional versions, as both upgrades and full programs. In June, PreSonus will also introduce Studio One Prime, a fully functioning free version, which will provide a great way to get started with Studio One.
