Alesis Andromeda A6 analog synthesizer demo — playing live ambient chillout / electronica soundscape / space music on Alesis A6 Andromeda analogue synth.
Created using 2 oscillators, filter and envelope adjustments, reverb, LFOs on the Alesis A6 Andromeda synthesizer.
Performed live, no external processing. Excerpt from a longer session.
Background video description:
I was asked on the Gearslutz forums if the Sub Phatty could do something that is a bit smoother and not quite so aggressive. It’s no voyager, but you can get some smoothness out of it. No comments on the playing itself, please. I never said I was a musician
Also, I have a cold. Sorry for the heavy breathing into the mic
I did this all live on camera, completely dry (no effects or eq). I didn’t try to create these patches ahead of time. You can certain do more, especially if you play with the two envelope generators.
Given that it’s only two octaves, I can’t recommend the Sub Phatty for leads and other similar work. Even for bass, I’d prefer another octave. That said, it’s a great sounding synth that is built like a tank. Great knobs, great key action, and a really solid feel.
Here’s the Sub Phatty recording I did which prompted this one:

The “play along” and I tried to the vocal using the Pitch Correct function of Cubase7
I made all “HALION 5″ backing tracks.
All tracks are HALION 5

“Analog sound. Impossible to recreate with today’s synths.”
A popular duophonic/monophonic classic from Korg. It’s got 2 analog oscillators that can be used for one fat monophonic sound or 2 VCO’s per voice for a fat duophonic sound. Flexible design with 2 voltage controlled filters and even a ring modulator. The Maxi-Korg is a great source of early Korg sound that rivals competitors like the OSCar and Roland SH-synths. No MIDI, no memory, but good bass and screechin’ leads! It has no CV input either, though it can be modified to accept externnal control from the less standard Hz/V protocol (also used by Yamaha).
Most people usually understand it best as two separate MiniKorgs inside one keyboard with all the controls to both. Most people will stack both voices as the triggering can be tricky as duophonic. It has the very effective ability to delay one voice before it triggers when played mono.
KORG Volca Beat has two Motion Recorder for track parameter variations in Stutter Delay Depth + Time and PCM Sounds Playback Speed. While in Record, you can automate parameters and, with a bit of skill, you can enhance the whole pattern. Not easy as it seems, but effective.
The KORG Volca Beats has six analog sounds (Kick, Snare, Lo/Hi Tom, Closed/Open Hat) and four PCM sounds (Clap, Agogo, Clave, Crash). In this video, there’s a quick run on the internal sounds, with coverage of main parameters. Warning: do not attempt to hear sounds thru PC internal speakers… especially Kick sound goes very low. No music on this video, just internal sounds from Volca Beats.
The Intellijel Dual ADSR:
-Based on the Roland SH-101 design with several enhancements.
-Manual GATE buttons
-Three timing ranges
-Normal and inverted outputs
-End of Decay (EOD) logic output
-Dynamic level control of each ADSR output level via built in linear VCA

The Roland SH-2 analog monosynth was a kind of SH-101 but with an extra oscillator and no sequencer – very much with the livery of the SH-09 – which is a nice bass monosynth
Demo of the Roland SH-2 vintage analogue synth. Driven via cv using kenton midi to cv converter and midi sent from Orion daw. Fx indicator on top left visible when used.
Going over the features and demonstrates the controls of the Numark Orbit wireless DJ controller.
The Numark Orbit has the standard DJ controls you can come to expect from other popular DJ controllers. There are some obvious differences but you have everything you need to get mixing and performing, right out of the box. While many DJ controllers tout the “plug and play” functionality but require a few extra steps to get going, the Numark Orbit and it’s companion Orbit DJ software synched as soon as I got connected. So if you are someone who is just starting out with audio and DJ software, you can rest assured that the Numark Orbit will not put up a fight when it comes to getting started right out of the box.
The pads, the bank buttons, the bumpers, and the endless rotary, all have a great feel and the controller itself is built very well. Using the rotary wheel in the middle is certainly a different way to DJ. It can be used to control volume, EQ levels, and act as a crossfader depending on what function you have it assigned to control. The wheel itself responds well to the touch and has a nice LED indicator for your level control.
Next to the wireless capabilities, the built in accelerometer is sort of what the Numark Orbit is all about. You can control all the parameters of your effects by tapping the bumpers and manipulating the controller in the proper fashion. Each bumper can control a parameter of a selected effect on its own, or you can hold down both bumpers and open the full function of the accelerometer control. You can lock the Numark Orbit’s accelerometer by double tapping the bumper, which eliminates the need to hold the bumper down when controlling effects.
