OTTO ~ demo.01

OTTO ~ demo.01 from Luca De Rosso on Vimeo.

"OTTO is a new musical instrument for beat-slicing, the technique that allows to create complex and variegated rhythm sections by using just one rhythmic audio sample, cutting it into little pieces and rearranging them in time. OTTO provides a hardware solution with a strong visual feedback, to allow the musician to control the audio sample as if it was in his hands.

AELITA

via this auction

"AELITA is a monophonic synthesizer, it has 3 independent OSC's + 3 sub OSC's, 1 LFO, 1VCA with ADSR, VCF with ADSR, chorus and 6-voice unison mode, good modulation functions. Full description and my review here.

Aelita provides impressive analog sound; it is convenient for modeling of fat basses, classic rock leads, hard razor waves, old space synths, noises/FX, etc. Click here for english panel translation."

Oberheim OB-8 analog synth used in The Time

via this auction

"This unit was used by St Paul Peterson in The Time and can be heard on one of their hits 'The Bird'."

As always, buyer beware. I have no idea if this is accurate or not. Interesting bit of synth history if so.







ANALOG SYNTH LM4250 VCF FILTER

LM4250 VCF from BLCLONES on Vimeo.

"This demonstrates a line Level audio signal going throught the filter. When the Burble switch is activated it produces fuzzlike tone.

The audio sync is a bit off from the video, but you get the idea."

LM4250 VCF DEMO 2 from BLCLONES on Vimeo.

"This demo shows you what the new found "burble" hack switch does and how it drops Acid in your signal."

via these auctions
"These are the inputs:
(1) CV
(1) FM bipolar CV
(2) Audio In (Ain)

These are the Outputs.
(1) FIlter out BP
(1) Filter out LP
(1) White Noise
(1) Pink Noise

Switches:
(2) Rez Hacks: one switch lowers the Rez Notch, the other boosts the rez Notch.
(1) Burble switch: this switch drops Acid on your signal. All of a sudden it is bright and bubbles when you sweep into lower frequencies. But it is not like you think. Circles become Squares..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now for the hard Facts: The pre-amp section was intended for VCO analog synth Signals, It sounds very clean with these signals because these levels are usually Beefy and Big.
It can however amplify Line level by x100. But by cranking it up all the way you will hear slight distortion and a little Noise. This also applies to Guitars/bass. In other words this is not a crystal clear Pre-amp when cranked up x100 gain.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These notes are for Modular synth owners and DIY'ers:
If you are brainstorming about ditching the Red wood box and possibly Modular Panel racking, Yes it is possible. The Lexan panel happens to be a MOTM 2U dimension. There is a location to solder a Motm style power connector also. There is an onboard power supply with a detachable AC power jack. That is removable (the jack). No other de-soldering of the power supply is required. There is an onboard trimmer to fix the Cutoff range to your liking. This is a hybrid designed pcb. It can be self powered or externally powered."
