Well after 5 teaser videos from MacBeth on the Nexus it sure seems like the new synth is coming together nicely
“When I’m testing gear that I’m designing- it’s quite exciting!….sometime I have to record/vid. Here is three of the NEXUS (prototype) being driven by a Korg SQ-10 sequencer- the fourth osc is cross modding the higher pitched square wave osc. It’s great fun running a three track analogue sequencer into this thing! Spacey effects are as usual with this device- the Dual Tape Delay Simulators- no other effects! Today- on screen- I basically finished the synthesizer. I’m looking forward to submitting the data to manufacture next week…! This btw is basically two different experiments filmed at different times…”
MFB Urzwerg Pro step sequencer can act as a MIDI sequencer on four separate MIDI Channels; on this video, Urzwerg Pro is controlli four separate parts of KORG Z1 modeling synthesizer.

Peter demonstrates some Mopho x4 factory sounds. Drums provided by Tempest, some effects used where noted.
During a recent visit to the Moog Factory, Professor Herb Deutsch, synth pioneer and collaborator of Bob Moog, gave an impromptu discussion on the evolution of the Minimoog.
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!
A look at the filter envelope and how you can use it to modulate the filter over time.
Introducing Granulator 2000 for OP1
OP-1 – Bärbar syntheziser (Bärbar = Portable) – Interesting video showing how the OP-1 evolved.

MiniNova is a compact, super-cool performance synth with the same sound engine as its big brother: the UltraNova. It comes with 256 incredible onboard sounds which you can tweak with 5 knobs, or totally warp with 8 ‘animate’ buttons. MiniNova also has an onboard VocalTune™ effect as well as a classic vocoder so you can recreate iconic vocal sounds from Hip Hop, Urban and electronic music.
Novation MiniNova key features:
• Hugely powerful micro synthesizer with UltraNova’s sound engine
• Brand new VocalTune™ and classic vocoder effects
• Live synth: tweak and warp your sounds in realtime
• 256 awesome onboard sounds – instantly searchable
• Layer up to 5 effects per voice
• Comes with editing software and a software patch librarian
• Run guitars and other instruments through the vocoder, VocalTune™ and effects
• 37 key controller keyboard with MIDI I/O

This is a small demo from the Korg Lambda ES-50, together with the Roland TR-77. Played by hand with multitrack recording.
Beside some reverb and delay, some lines from the Lambda were also played through the Electro Harmonix Small Stone Phaser.
The Lambda ES50 is a vintage poly-ensemble type synthesizer with slightly editable Preset orchestral sounds. It is divided into two sections: The Percussion set includes Preset pianos, clavis and harmonics; The Ensemble section has Presets for brass, strings, organ and choruses. Filter and envelope controls affect the different instruments individually. The Lambda has 96 discrete envelopes and VCAs – two for each key – a very unusual design. There are also vibrato and chorus effects.
The Percussion group and Ensemble group each have their own separate outputs which is nice. A joystick is proveded left of the keyboard for simultaneous control of pitch bends and chorus phase speed.
The String sounds are the nicest sounds this synth can create. With three oscillators you can vary and detune them enough to get a nice layered analog string. Piano and Brass sounds are pretty cheesy. The Lambda is cased in a great big wooden case that gives it that authentically vintage status. It’s nice to have around, but a good sample of it is all you’ll really need these days.
