Anyone got a manual for Analogue Systems TH48?

Picked this sequencer up used a few years ago, great unit but there's a few features I can never quite manage to get the result I'd expect with. Tried emailing Analogue Systems a couple of tmes in the past and never got a reply, it's not on their website as a download that I can see, may just be too...

Manikin Memotron won't boot

It's been slow to boot for a while and I'd just kind of got used to waiting a minute or so for it to come round as it was working fine after that. Now powers up fine but stays at the Memotron v1.3 screen indefinitely, tried the 'hardware reset' a couple of times, left it for a few hours, just stuck ...

Re: 50's vaccum tube synth/organ mods/circuit bending?

You've picked a very dangerous bit of kit to be circuit bending there.

The DC high tension voltage on the valve/tube heaters is the last thing you want to tangle with.

Smart... I'm surprised no-one is already offering a version of it, really was particularly sweet.

Does anyone do a SH-5 filter clone for Eurorack

Just wondering, it feels like one of those things that someone could do well making... can't think that anyone is though.

Only one I've heard of was AMSynths who don't seem to make it anymore...

Re: DSI Announces New REV2 16-Voice Analog Poly Synth!

I'm suffering from Analogue fatigue at the moment - Too much of the same old. I'm after something that's going to slap me in the face and scream "WAKE UP"... Even if it's digital - GASP! I know what you mean, it does seem to have led to a serious lack of innovation, and not even different manufactu...

Song from Cymbeline

Bit of an idea thing I had, Shakespeare's Song from Cymbeline set to Ramin Djawadi's 'Dr Ford'.

Gear used, Prophet 5, Memotron, Doepfer modular, bodhran.

Much the same, it's very nice but I can't get on with Waldorf either.

Twisted Electrons AY-3 Demos

Re: Twisted Electrons AY-3 Woes

This is now resolved, I sent the unit back to Alex in France who found a fault in the MIDI circuit and repaired it. :D

Top customer support there, even offered to cover my postage costs. If only all manufacturers were like this. :D

Re: Radikal Technologies Accelerator pad

Sounding good, Accelertor is one of the few modern synths that really has an 'Oooooo' factor for me ie it makes me go 'Ooooo' when I hear it lol not that it does good 'Oooo' type sounds, although that's always a plus.

Have come close to pulling the trigger on this once or twice.

Very quick demo here that I managed to knock off in a rare moment when my AY-3 was working, before it gave up the ghost entirely:

Re: Twisted Electrons AY-3 Woes

Yeah, I've done a few tests and eliminated obvious issues like a fault with the non-standard midi cable (i think) - it gets a bit comple as the replacement I bought may not have the correct pin configuration, and the socket adapter the seller shipped from new with was unfit for purpose, so they coul...

Re: What keyboard synth is this?

Could you find an email for the chap and ask him?

If you say lots of nice things to him and tell him how much you like him, there's some chance he might reply?
