Korg Poly 61 demo

February 26, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Details about the video:

Here is a video of the Korg Poly 61. I programmed some new sounds into the memory bank and set up a loop on the tape recorder. You can edit the 2 digital VCOs, the filter and VCA which share an envelope, and send an LFO to the filter, pitch and VCA. Thats pretty much it, but the results of combining these few parameters are really satisfying, especially when dealing with first-generation analog/digital hybrid electronic circuits

The second bit of the video was shot at Tate Modern, where they have a really good 60s/70s minimalist show on at the moment. There was an arresting yellow Anthony Caro that caught my eye

KORG PROPHECY- Favorite Patches / Walkthrough

October 22, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KORG PROPHECY Synth Demo, Part 2 of a 2 Part video series on my favorite patches, and a ‘walkthrough.’ of programming changes. Be sure to watch for a Part 2 of a deeper video series on programming soon to follow.

————————————————————
I will provide a download link, upon request, to the Korg Prophecy Parameter Guide & The MOSS-TRI User’s Guide, which is the manual for the Prophecy board for the Korg Trinity “Plus”…not the V3 Z1 MOSS-TRI Board (they are different synths):

The KORG PROPHECY was among the first “Virtual Analog” synthesizers from the mid to late 90s, and is one of my favorite synths due to it’s truly extensive architecture. It remains one of the more complex and unique sounding “Physical Modeling” Synthesizers ever made.

This is nice – Cosmosf vSaturn – a potential must have

September 10, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Demonstrating the new Cosmosƒ vSaturn synthesiser. This version presents a unique “Sieves” engine, which makes it possible to calculate the known musical scales and custom designed ones, for mapping on multiple synthesis engine parameters at once.

vSaturn also offers a clever MIDI response to perform with the “sieves” on Cosmosƒ micro events. Single notes or chords can be performed with MIDI input to control the micro event pitch relationship inside the relevant meso events.

lso there is a audio precision arpeggiator “a la Cosmosƒ” with stochastic features implemented in this new version.

WASP synthesizer (Electronic Dream Plant ) demo – recording WASP synth sample library

WASp – vintage analog synthesizer by Electronic Dream Plant . Recording Wasp synth sample library
purchase at http://tikov.com/samplelibraries.htm
thanks ReSet Sakrecoer for synth www.sakrecoer.com

The Wasp is a quirky little synthesizer that, despite its toyish look, is a quality instrument capable of fun and funky analog sounds. It really is black and yellow too, just like the insect it is named after. Probably its most distinguishing feature is the 2-octave keyboard which uses non-moving touch-sensitive keys. The flat little keys are sensitive only to your electro-static touch. It’s a nifty technology for 1978, but in reality they are unreliable and difficult to play. Other unique touches include a little speaker built-in to the synth and EDP’s own pre-MIDI connector ports for linking it to other Wasps and EDP gear.

A look under the hood, however, reveals some nice surprises. The WASP is monophonic and powered by two digital oscillators supported by analog filters, envelopes and controls. This makes it one of the earliest compact digital/analog hybrid mono-synths, and it sounds great! The Wasp offers flexible subtractive synthesis. It’s pretty easy to dial up some cool bass, synth, and other classic monophonic sounds. Its designer, Chris Hugget, also designed the Oxford Synthesizer Company’s venerable OSCar Synthesizer.
