Moog Synthesizer: Multimoog

One of the synthesizers I always wanted as far back as 1980 is the Moog Multimoog. I thought it would be great to have the pressure sensitive keyboard with that Moog sound. After I bought the Micromoog I kept eyeing the Multimoog sitting there at Switched On in Austin. I wasn’t really thinking about it Read More…

The Ensoniq VFX-Sd Arrives

Another new synthesizer has arrived. The Ensoniq VFX-Sd. This is an 80s synth and it was very much an impulse buy because I suddenly found out it has poly aftertouch and is fairly cheap. The one I got is in really good shape other than 3 buttons that aren’t working very well. The only other Read More…

Rohbits sing Silent Night

What would it sound like if a robot sang christmas carols? Wonder no more! Here it is. Loads of synths used here. OB-8, Prophet 600, Polymoog, Rev 2, Micromoog, MS-10 and more.

Micromoog Synthesizer

Well, I couldn’t resist another one. I saw it sitting in a store for many months and finally said “I better grab it!!” so now I own a 1975 Micromoog! I’ve always wanted a Multimoog and will have to get one at some point but I thought this one, although much scaled back, would probably Read More…

Roland Boutique SE-02

Well the new synth for September (or it might have been august) was the Roland Boutique SE-02. It’s a nice little (TINY!!) fully analog synth with 3 oscillators somewhat copying the Minimoog Model D. This one adds a bunch of cool features like a separate LFO and a lot of cross modulation so you can Read More…

Dave Smith DSI Prophet REV 2 – 16 voice

In January I got a DSI Tetra and immediately loved the sound. Soon after they announced the REV 2 and I decided that was the one I needed to get. It arrived here at Cosmo Music much sooner than I expected so I drove up there and tried it out. Right away it seemed pretty Read More…

Korg MS-10

I saw a video a little while ago that was demonstrating the Korg MS-20 and briefly he showed the MS-10 filter. It sounded much more beefy than the MS-20! So, of course, I had to get one! For some reason, this eBay seller decided to not ship for almost 3 weeks but he was nice Read More…

Gibson Les Paul Standard HP

Another dream comes true! Again it took a long time, about 38 years, but it’s definitely well worth it!My first guitar was a really cheap Les Paul copy (and I still have it! .. what’s left of it) and I’ve always wanted one ever since then but I always get caught up with either the Read More…

Dave Smith Tetra Synthesizer

My newest addition just arrived. The Dave Smith Tetra. I’ve had a Mopho for a while and wasn’t all that happy with it but I’m pretty sure that’s because there’s no front panel. It’s really hard to edit a sound when you have to cycle through every parameter and change them one at a time. Read More…

New Song: Trinitite

Here’s a new song that I did a few years ago. I meant to do more with it but I like the weird feeling it has now so I don’t think I’ll change it. Since I don’t plan on including it on the next CD I decided I’d post it now. This song started as Read More…

Korg Minikorg 700

One more new addition to my studio! I couldn’t resist buying this old synthesizer. This was the first one that Korg ever made, the Minikorg 700. The price seemed pretty good and I’ve been seeing them going for much more lately, so like the Arp Axxe I figured I better grab it while it was Read More…

Little Drummer Bot – a Christmas Song

A new song has been posted, although I’m not sure how long it will be there since it is not in the public domain. I really shouldn’t be posting things like this without a performance license but it was just for fun and obviously I’m not going to make a dime from it so I Read More…

Halloween Song – The Monster Never Dies

This is a fairly simple song for a Reddit competition. Lots of synths in here: OB-8, Voyager, Polymoog, Arp Odyssey, MS-20, Mopho, Sh-1000, Prophet 600, Prophet 12, CS-15, Korg M3m, Creamware Pro-12, Modular Synth, SEM-Pro, Proteus-2000, MicroBrute, and Alesis DMPro for the timpani.

Polymoog Demo

I have completed fixing the polymoog… for now! Unfortunately I have discovered that it overheats after an hour or so of operation so I will have to do something about the transformer or maybe the whole power supply. Or maybe there is still something wrong causing it to drain a lot more amps that it Read More…
