This is a demo and beta call for a new Reason Rack Extension called Repeat. It’s a real-time, 4 channel, first-loop enabled looper.

The Roland Juno-60 is a popular analogue 61-key polyphonic synthesizer introduced by Roland Corporation in 1982 and a successor to the slightly earlier Juno-6. Like its predecessor, the Juno-60 has some digital enhancements, used only for clocking the oscillators and for saving and loading patches. This instrument was succeeded by the Roland Juno-106 in 1984.
Roland was losing market share with the Juno-6 in competition against the Korg Polysix. Related in features and price-class, the Polysix featured external control and patch memory, which the Juno-6 lacked. These features were quickly added to the Juno-6′s design, which sonically and architecturally did not change notably between the two versions, and then released as the Juno-60.

For me is the Juno-60 one of the best analog synthesizers ever. The bass and pad sounds are much better as from the big brother Jupiter-8. One of my Top 5 synths.
This demo includes the Korg ES-1 sampler, Korg EM-1 workstation, and Novation DrumStation drum synth. The EM-1 is sequencing the DrumStation, the DrumStation is doing it’s own sort of 909 impression, and the ES-1 is playing back the sample (Cathy Dennis “Touch Me”, sampled off the 12″ single and pitched down). The ES-1 is also functioning as an effects unit with it’s audio in being connected to an effects send on my mixer. The reverb is an Electro Harmonix Holy Stain.
People have asked that MacBeth do a video of the NEXUS prototype again- more features now added include Octave Switch for all 4 Oscillators. For Oscillators 1 and 3- seperate Pulse Width Modulators have been added- separate mening independant of each other and of the on board LFO. Fatten your sound up with a full on 4 Oscillators! Also featured on this synthesizer are a Dual State Variable Filter, 4 Envelope Generators, Dual Noise Generators, Dual VCAs and Dual Tape Delay Simulator circuits! NEXUS is a true stereo analogue synthesizer with touch plate keyboard! In the hands of a real musician- this thing will work wonders!
Dan “Polymoog” Stesco demos the new Korg microSTATION keyboard, showcasing some of the sounds he engineered for it.
Keio organ – Korg
MicroStation offers unprecedented portability, the stunning sound of Korg’s EDS-i synth engine (M3, M50), dual arpeggiators, and phenomenal effects; all the tools you would expect in a keyboard/workstation housed in a smaller – and extremely affordable – package.
Whether performing or composing, the on-board sequencer can be anything from an extra set of hands or a powerful drum machine up to a full-blown MIDI production suite. Loop Recording, Grid Sequencing, Song Templates, and One-Step recording features make it easy for anyone to achieve professional results.
This demos a few user patches for Audulus 2 and shows were and how to install them without leaving the comfort of your iPad..this was made with an iPad2 16 GB

PMT Exclusive – Korg Volca Range Demonstration
At Frankfurt musikmesse 2013, PMT grabbed a first look at the new KORG
Volca range. We witnessed Boris from Korg Europe putting Volca through
its paces, and the results were excellent.
The rumour mill before the show was rife with talk of KORG releasing
further retro based vintage products that are packed with analog
technology. The range comprises of three separate models, we have the
Volca Bass, a unique three oscillator analog bass synthesizer, the
Volca Beats which is an analog drum machine featuring a comprehensive
16 step sequencer, Completing the lineup is the Volca Keys, a
straightforward yet effective polyphonic analog synthesizer which also
features a loop sequencer. The fun doesn’t end there, each unit in the
Volca range has a MIDI input and sync jack making it easy to interface
with your favorite DAW.

To give you a flavour of the 5 Oscillator/ 2 filter sound- MacBeth set up this on the M5X prototype. It’s pretty massive with hints of spring line reverb and cross modulation from one of the VC Modulators modulating as well as being audio! It’s a booming, massive sound!
We go over the features and demo the sounds of the Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII.
