Quasimidi Quasar - Live Performance

YouTube via beckhusen
"The Quasar from Quasimidi is my oldest rack-synth expander. In the video you see my typical way to play with this machine. Of course you can make different changings to the single instruments and performances. For detailed technical infos please search the web.
As you see i like a randomized style of handling with the Quasar. That includes most times the key following same as the instrument changings. In this video i played only the C for triggering."

Vintage Starkey Hearing Lab

via this auction
"this was originally built in 1977 for hear and speech sciences experimentation. Today some use this machine as synthesizer, gate, trig-processor or trig sequencer. This is very desirable and are rare. This one is from indiana state university, it was in the lab."

A100 Motorik rhythm

"I wanted to use our still-new Doepfer A-118 Noise source in a drum pattern. This is the result.

Here's the patch:

The envelope generator on the Moog Rogue is set to auto-trigger itself.

The Audio Out from the Moog Rogue is sent to the Symmetrical input on the A-119 External Input, only to trigger its Gate output (the Audio Out on the 119 is not used).

The Gate Out from the A-119 is sent to a multiple, and from there to:

1. The Trig. In on an A-160 Clock Divider
2. The Gate In on an A-140 Envelope Generator

The /4 output on the 160 is triggering a Boss Dr. Pad (Snare 1 setting). The output from the Dr. Pad is sent to the mixer (off screen).

The /8 output on the 160 is triggering the first envelope on the A-143-1 Complex Envelope Generator (set to Attack-Decay mode) the output of which is opening the bottom VCA on the A-132-3 Dual VCA. The output on the bottom VCA is sent to a mixer (off screen).

The CP2 gate out on the 143-1's second channel (set to LFO mode) is patched to the CV In on an A-150 Dual Voltage Controlled Switch (here acting as a VCA). The output of the 150 is send to the mixer (off screen).

The triangle output from a Plan B ELF LFO is sent to a Frostwave Resonator's input, the output of which is connected to a Frostwave Blue Ringer. The Ringer's output is patched to the Input on the upper 132-3 VCA; the output of the upper VCA is sent to the mixer (off screen).

The White Noise output from the 118 is sent to the In 2 input on an A-196 Phase Locked Loop. The Phase Comp. Output from the 196 is sent to the first Input on the A-150. The second input is left unpatched.

The Colored Noise output from the 118 is sent to the Input on the bottom 132-3 VCA.

The first output on the 140 is opening the upper 132-3 VCA.

The second output on the 140 is sent to a multiple, and from there to:

1. the Low Pass Frequency CV In the Resonator
2. to an attenuator, and then to the CV In on the Ringer

I think that's everything. Two A-118 noise channels, one Dr. Pad channel and one M37-->filter-->ring modulator channel. Panned for stereo but otherwise no outboard effects used."

"I could listen to this all day!

We just got a Doepfer A-118 Noise and Random Voltage module. It's great!!

In this patch, the Colored output from the 118 is being fed into a channel on the A-132-3 VCA. The Random Voltage output from the 118 is being multed and sent to:

A. the Gate In on a A-140 Envelope Generator (the output of which is opening the VCA)

B. the Trigger In on an A-160 Clock Divider (the /4 and /32 outputs are sending CV to the two halves of an A-150 Dual Voltage Controlled Switch, strictly for blinkenlights purposes)

C. the CP3 In on an A-143-1 Complex Envelope Generator (the Mix Out of which is modulating the Low Pass Frequency on a Frostwave Resonator)

The output from the VCA is sent to the Audio In on a Frostwave Resonator filter; the Resonator is sent into a Frostwave Blue Ringer ring modulator; the output from the Blue Ringer is sent to a mixer, and from there to the computer.

The audio sync is a hair off. Please accept my apologies.

We recommend the A-118. I'm already finding it to be more useful than I'd anticipated!"

Synthex - Analog Synth & Effect - Analogue Synthesizer

via this auction
"This is the latest, custom-made, hand-built, all-analog, synth and sound effects generator from deep in the laboratories at Abstract Data.
It is an extremely versatile synth - giving you instant access to full-force, knob-turning analog power.

Whether you're a musician, producer, sound designer, DJ or live performer - all the best of analog fatness and warmth can now be yours.

At the heart of Synthex is a true Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) that outputs Square and Triangle Waveforms - but that really is just the start.
Use the two external audio inputs to create massive Hard Sync and FM effects, control the Mix and Levels with dedicated cross-faders,
reconfigure the internal signal path with the flick of a switch and lose yourself in a world of pure analog bliss.
What does it sound like?

The video below demonstrates four very simple routines that range from more familiar, full-bodied analog warmth, through to some of the more experimental Synthex sounds.

This is just a taste of what Synthex is capable of and because it will accept absolutely any type of 'line-level' audio input, your imagination really is the only limit.

The external audio inputs used in this clip are all straight, symmetrical waveforms being fed from a software sequencer via an external soundcard.
The last clip uses two waveforms per input for a little extra something."

"Synthex is the latest model in the Hex Series of Hybrid Synths and Effects from ADT. Analog VCO with Square and Triangle Wave outputs via a dedicated cross-fade. Hard Sync and FM Modulation via two external audio inputs - also with their own cross-fade. Two switchable modes to go from more familiar analog sounds to awesome, bizarre and completely freakish sound effects. Great for tweak-heads and sound-designers alike. A very limited quantity of this model will be available for sale - please PM me if you'd like to know more."

Roland MC-202 with Patch Points

via this auction

"it has been modified with a modular patch bay of various in's and out's to control your other CV gear. This 202 is particularly useful with eurorack modular gear as the patch points are 1/8th'' jacks."

YouTube via zibbybone
"First, I run through the Internal and and Cart sounds (forgot to look to see what cart #) triggered via MIDI keyboard. Next I demonstrate the "Reverese" and "Damp" functions. Damp allows you to silence the decay on an instrument much like choking a cymbal. Lastly, I demonstrate a function that turns the drum machine into a 16 part monophonic, multi-timbral sound module. Here, I sequence four parts (DXClav, Bass1, Snare1 and Closed Hi Hat) with a Roland Fantom X6."
