the swedish better MS20?
no.. it’s different.. VERY much!!
it has the FASTEST ENVELOPES I every listend to on ANY synthesizer!two filters and 3x FM – OSCs..
a lot of paramters can be patched using 3.5mm jacks
but, hell.. I have never listended to a better synth for percussion sounds because of the 0.5ms Envelopes!
there is linear and expo characteristics.
the LFO is about 60Hz fast.
it’s one LFO, the s2, a smaller version has 2 LFOs aboard..
2 ENVs, ultrafast
all standard waveforms on the VCOs
internal midi available and can be sent to the “outside wolrd” ,too..
Video (play with VLC)
and 3 VCOs all FM able..Sinus, Triangle, Sawtooth, Triangle + Pulse, Pulse, syncable 2 VCOS!! means: vco 1 and2 , vco 2 and 3!! hard sync only, but 2 syncs!! and as said: the fastest envelopes on an analog synth ever since..
2filters: 4-6poles!! (24-36dB/oct.) ranging up to 16khz! lpf only
2nd filter: multimode 2-6 poles lpf,bpf,hpf
both feature self oscillation
all is patchable..
2 ADSR envs 0.5ms minimum per stage! 20 secs max!
noise (any color ;) .. red,white,low freq noiseso the specs are very hi-ended..vca: lin & log mode.Price is SEK 22400 (appr 2600 EURO)
the cwejman modular system:
doepfer-sized modules, very slim.. very good and very fast env, here it is 0.1ms ,again faster than the s1’s envs (05.ms):
this is a semi modular machine (no pic so far, but the delivery of the machiens has just started (fall/2003)
LFO up to about 62Hz, random,saw/saw inverted,square waves
patchable: speed,intensity, gate input

|the SKYWAVE LORD|
has an interesting control Joytick with built in potentiometer..
also: sensor keys in the middle with phaser, filter etc. control (enable/disable)
only 10 Lords made..
|FUTURE RETRO||future retro|
|more analogue synthesizers CH|
neptune II3 VCOs, one of them can be used as LFO, mods VCO1,2 or filter, no PWM but multimode filter, rough sounding analogue
envs: nice, but not that fast..swiss made.

|Steiner Parker Modular|
the Synthasystemall discrete electronics in here of course.the steiner parker synthacon was sort of “minimoog” synth with 3 VCOs and multimode filter with FM functionality and the valve instrument (on the right on the bottom picture)
Steiner Parker Synthacon
this one has 3 VCOs , all can be FM’ed by each other and all VCOs range to 20khz! this thing was made in 1974.
it has simplified envelopes like the minimoog (sort of..) and has a clock generator.. and a multimode filter 12dB/oct.
quite a lot of features in times,where the sh5 was about to come and arp and moog dominated the synth world.
anyway: this won’t be seen too often.. unfortunately..
|Buchla Music Easel|
uses banana jacks (!).. they are “stackable”..Don Buchla also made the Oberheim Ob-MX when Tom Oberheim left Oberheim (!)
His Buchla Box 200e is a very big digital memory modular system with multi-staage envelopes and sequencers, complex control and very high price, but Buchla did a lot of very visionary/innovative synths in the same time when moog did his more popular and more known synths, buchla is a bit unconventional, even in 1982 he had programmable “controllers” like todays sequencers in software in a box. (the mid phase of his modular series), means: see/draw in your envelope.. well, not that easy those days but very new..
Buchla has a new system out, a modular system with RAM, digital analog hybrid.
Don Buchla was also responsible for the “oberm00g” OB-MX synth by Oberheim (Tom Oberheim wasn’t Toms company at that time..
|about the same hardware as the SCI Prophet 5,the GLEEMAN PENTAPHONIC SYNTHESIZERpolyphonic synth, but of course no poly mod section,|
this version is exotic, the normal one is black!
|us valve tech modular special modules|
tube valve analogue modules and synthesizers..
this is filters and ringmod and distortion with VALVES by metasonix..very trashy design but sounds very mighty and basic!! nice addition to modular systems.. made in usa.
available in germany by schneidersbuero
and another .OGG file by “rechner7” from the synthesizerforum.de made with agonizer tx1semore about metasonix and the wretch full tube synthesizer..

TIRACON 6Vbeside the vermona synth (see vermona section!) there was the TIRACON 6V , it’s quite like a poly61 / poly800 programming style. on board sequencerincluding 4 Level – Envelopes and the “roland-style” static hpf. of course it has a lpf main filter controlled by env and lfo ..
there is a proto type around Tiracon C21 (red with black controls a bit like karma “look” from 1989 that is a drum machine and a preset synth in one case plus some FX.. pic see this posting by Lutz
from AAC (Automatisierungs- und Anlagenbau Cottbus, former easst germany).

|TEISCO , later KAWAI ..more on this little synth .. on kawai / teisco..2x AD env, lfo triggerable|
1 vco incl Lo setting
LPF + static HPF
110F it’s strange, some technology of this synth came from ARP, it has a fixed filter bank , 2 VCOs and 2 ADSR envelopes.
similar to ARP it has one lfo with 20hz max only and a self reso 24dB/oct LPF with “roland type” fixed HPF. the lfo can trigger the ENVs, ringmod is on board, too. it’s VCOs have a very large range from LFO/low to 64′ to 4′!! goood for ringmod noises!
the mixer does not allow ringmod and noise at the same time but it’s white or pink noise then..
