“Comparision of two great reverb pedals. The very popular Strymon Big Sky against the quite unknown GFI SYSTEM Specular Reverb V3.
The Strymon contains 12 algorithms and a lot of parameters, whereas the GFI is ab bit simpler. It contains only 7 algorithms. But it costs only about half the price of the Strymon. Soundwise both are great. I prefer the GFI,

“Note: this unit does not have *MIDI. However, it was stored and not gigged much of its life (low miles compared to many Xas).
This one was just serviced by world-renowed tech Greg Montalbano of Analog Synth Service this past month in 2019. Keybed, and power supply were checked out and the voice cards calibrated and tuned. Factory patches loaded.”

“In this demo I only used one hardware effect, the GFI System Clockwork Delay V3. No other effects or mastering is used, also no plug ins. The Clockwork Delay is a quite unknown pedal from Indonesia.

Oberheim OB-Xa Analog Synthesizer from the year 1981
The demo video shows some self programmed pad and atmo sounds.

This mod is switchable using the “Half & Full” front panels to toggle between the standard 12db Oberheim filters and the JL Cooper 24db filter which utilizes Curtis chips. This mod simply gives you another tonal option that extends that already legendary sound of this synthesizer which

“A reconstruction of one of The System’s most popular tracks … with an extremely busy bassline only David Frank could have executed this flawlessly (played or programmed though? I’ll have to admit that it took me at least 30 takes before I got it reasonably right, and even then I had to do quite a bit of editing in Ableton Live). This time I nailed the

“Ultra rare used Marion Systems MSR-2 Modular Synthesizer rack. This one has 2 voice boards installed, total of 16 analog Oberheim voices in a tiny rack! 16 part multitimbral too! This little guy is powerful, look up the specs. The mod matrix is deep. This is not the watered down ProSynth which looks similar. This has to be the smallest analog rack with 16 voices. Tom Oberheim

Oberheim OB-X / OB-Xa based soft synth. Sounds like my old OB-Xa, but not seeing a 2-Pole / 4-Pole switch.
“RAST-A for HALion is an homage to legendary voltage-controlled synthesizers of the 1980s. It not only models the musical influence of individual hardware components on sound, but also simulates the temperature drift of VCOs.
