SammichSID Novation Zero SL mkii template

Those geniuses at Novation shipped this controller with a couple of software disks but alas, no TEMPLATE EDITOR for people who dont use a pc to make music.

Download the template editor program from their support pages, connect the Zero SL to your pc via usb, switch it on and fire the software. Press Global options on the SL, choose mem protect off.

Load the syx file provided by yours truly:

Masuto’s SammichSID template 😊

and then.. select

Press Write, and bob’s your uncle.

I saved it in location 20 (empty) and made it the startup template.

For your reference, heres a crudely PAINT assembled wildcard:

Happy knob twiddling!

SIEL Orchestra

I bought it ages ago cos it was dead cheap.

If you’re even remotely into mid to late 70es italian poliziotteschi soudtracks, this is the string synth for you.

It is a big (in size) synth.

Ram’s Head Battersea Power Station Big Muff ₽i

    

When i was a Londoner, id often catch the 24 bus on sunday mornings from Hampsted Heath to its final destination, Pimlico. There was a pub there, next to the bus station where we would go have brunch and shoot pool. In the afternoon we would visit the Tate, usually.

And we would enjoy the beautiful, post modern view of the Battersea Power Station from Pimlico.

Gilmour used a rams head Big Muff on Animals.

Built for a friend on a pcb by OP ELECTRONICS, IT. Transistors BC239C from ebay seller, Whazzgroover. Sprague caps, etc

First time i mess with a hot glue gun, and i guess you can tell! 🐣

Jh-1 Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzzface

   Jim Dunlop holds the name FUZZFACE licence. Before it was spelled, FUZZ (space) FACE.

   Silicon BC108 transistors, vintage style build.

How does it sounds? Not bad in my opinion.. And the presentation is quite lush.

The Hendrix family on the other hand.. Geez they never got it with their son being a genius. And now that they can remix his oeuvre in the most appalling way, they went for it. 

I mean.. Has any of you listened to the reissued experience lps? 

Awful out of focus fx added, messy sound image (changes at every other track on the Are You Experienced lp), poor original sources research, no whatsoever idea of whats goin on: they managed to DESTROY even a song as straight forward as Fire! 

Idiotic panning solos? Yeah! 

Awful. 

And before you can say ‘man’, they put out the jimi hendrix fragrances. Like the world needed them.

So all in all this is possibly the only instance of the hendrix genius almost given a proper name.
