KULTEN IS BACK ! (SYB-3 fans welcome)

Post by kulten » Wed May 19, 2010 8:17 pm

Hi there,

I'm back after a year of bass playing in a rock band, collaborations with electronic friends, and non-posting in this forum.

I replug the SYB-3 !

And here's a sample of one of my work, I now try to be part ambiant (like this track, made with SYB-3 bass synth, DR-110 drum machine and DD-3 digital delay) and part even more "minimal" than I was (those who know me can be afraid...).

OCEAN IN SATURN : https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7064872/ocean_in_saturn.mp3

By the way : I can see more and more SYB-3 and SYB-5 users on YouTube and that's realy cool, you know these synths are awesome if you know them.

EDIT : let's talk about SYB would you ?

BSY is pretty dang cheap. I wonder how they compare. Usually they all have their own character. I had the Korg synth bass pedal, forgot the name, but it was pretty cool for vowelly sounds.

Hey Kulten and others,

I got a question, is the SYB-3 digital or is it analog? I've been wondering this for a while but given the time it was created I'd expect it to be digital.

I really love the square with noise on this pedal.

I posted a side to side of the two a while back in sound production, not sure if it's still posted.

Thank you everyone.

It's a digital synth, analog modeling with a processor. I have phoned to BOSS Europe in 2004 (I'm French) and ask them why the SYB-5 is less expensive than the SYB-3 ; they said that the chip in the SYB-3 is built for it, and the chip in the SYB-5 is also use in other Roland units.

I think I'm the origine of that "analog synth" legend, when I posted on the net in 1999 that it has a built in oscillator. It was a mistake, but Internet is a great area of "copy/paste" and so...

About the BSY 600 : it's a SYB-5 clone.

Welcome back.

Me, i'm still trying to figure out if the SYB (or the BSY) boxes can be used with monophonic old toy keyboards like my old brilliant Yamaha PSS-20.

I circuit bent one of these recently after finding it for 2.99$ at a value village. It can make some pretty crazy noises now.

Helo,

Nice to see you.

Long story short : I played in several bands the last 6 years as a bass player (rock, metal, jazz, electro, and I even play clarinet now), but the SYB-3 was missing, and now I really want to go electro.

So :

- new page (Facebook) : https://www.facebook.com/Kulten/
- now I'm on SoundCloud : https://soundcloud.com/user-580682533

Hope this time it's for real. Posts about synthesizers here are so cool, this forum brings me good memories.
