The Kraftzwerg from MFB and More via Davide

via Davide: "The Kraftzwerg from MFB, a pre-patched but completely re-patchable mono analog beast (3 osc, a beautiful double LFO and a very nice sounding 24db VCF). The Kraftzwerg is REALLY the assembly of the modules from MFB so you are not going to loose any of the modulation possibilities.

The beautifully cheap Eurorack cabinet (or better… naked rails and cheeks!) from MFB (with power supply and midi to cv interface) and some intriguing doepfer modules.

A-118 Noise/Random, a beautiful kaos generator. There is a variable rate random voltage suitable for modulating anything in a non predictable but smooth way. Oh, and a couple of audio noise output.

A-132 Double VCA. I’m gonna use this.

A-124 WASP filter. Very nice sounding cheap filter. I bought this to have an High Pass and Band Pass to complement the very good LPF of the Kraftzwerg.

A189-1 Voltage controllable BIT CRUNCHER / MODIFIER. The name says it all. I read on some forums that this unit DOES NOT SOUND NICE. What the hell!!!!! There should be really dumb people out there.. Hook up a couple of CV to affect sample rate and bitcrushing… Instant mayhem.

A-180 MULTIPLES. It goes without saying… the most beautiful sounding of ‘em all. Gh-gh-gh!"

"The synth under the cat is a pretty rare 12DCO Italian polysynth from the eighties [Solton Project 100]…. The cat is Pallina (little ball).

That’s my Xmas Studio!"



Synth Price List in Euros on Amazona.de

via JB.

BTW, people have asked me why I don't capture the synth prices for auctions posts. The reason is I just don't have the time. It takes more time than I currently have just keeping up with the posts that do go up. But... if anyone is interested you could note the price in the comments of each post. The trick of course would be to go back and find the price it sold for.

Indamixx Walkthru: Diving Deeper In Da Indamixx

YouTube via gearwire. Follow-up to this post.
"At its most basic level, the Indamixx is a great way to convince passersby that you're an important businessman doing important business things. However, if you want to get some use out of this hand-held music production system
, check out this video.

Bill Holland, with his mighty stylus in hand, displays how to sequence drums and add effects to your tracks in the second part of our look at Indamixx.

Roland JX8p | demo (1 of 2) by syntezatory.prv.pl

YouTube via Jexus. More vids by Jexus here.
"1985 Roland JX-8p. All sounds programmed by WC Olo Garb. All melodies by WC Olo Garb. Video editing by WC Olo Garb. ||| Syntezatory.prv.pl Videos: showing you not what a synthesizer can do, but what a man can do with a synthesizer. [].[].[] Deep apologies to all the people disappointed by the lack of the attempt to recreate The Final Cuntdown patch.

Watching this video in standard quality renders it quite useless. But even if you choose high quality version, you will still hear some cracking noise present due to the YT compression algorithm. THE SYNTH IS NOT ROUTED THRU ANY OVERDRIVE EFFECT."

Open Question: can you recommend a circuit simulator for me?

I would like to design a modular synthesizer based around the XR-2206.

Synthesia - Open Synth Hardware Platform

"The synthesia platform is a project whose purpose is to create an Analogue modelling musical synthesizer; that is, a synthesizer implemented using both analogue and digital components that intends to emulate the sounds of traditional analogue synthesizers, whilst being controllable through modern-day digital protocols such as the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI).
The synthesizer platform exists upon it’s own standalone hardware, and may be controlled using a variety of existing MIDI-capable instruments, including keyboards, guitars and drums.

You can find more info at http://synthesia.sourceforge.net/. Also see these prior posts.
