Leipzig-S
Old 9th October 2013

There are lots of combinations with the built in sequencer and its modulations and a lot to tweak, take the time to explore it, you will get fantastic results out of it

I love this synth

WOW! This thing sounds epic - I was already having enough conflict before I fell in love with the sounds of the Vermona PerFourMer but this has definitely got my interests piqued, least not with a key version.

Now it's off to do some reading as to which, out of the PerFourMer, Mono Lancet combo and Leipziq-sk will suit my styling better (or maybe takes me somewhere new!)

^ Just out of curiosity is your reaction to my recent vid post or you just discover the unit via this thread in general?

Little bit of 50/50 there, though I obviously stumbled on the thread first.
Watched all of the videos on this thread - though in relation to yours, I'm also looking toadd an MS2000 so that was a bonus

It looks like a such a great synth - immediately playable but I get the impression it's deceptively complex in what it can achieve sound wise.

Cool man. It's just nice to know if I was instrumental in the hype.
And you're spot on about the Leipzig-s... though its not fair to make any conclusions having owned it only one day, it looks incredibly complicated and not intuitive at all but I know it can do cool stuff, so hopefully it's just a matter of time to get to know it better.

It is a fully analog synth, even the sequencer and every function has its own knob
it is big and built like a tank and everything reminds me on the old Model D
and it sounds much better than a voyager
there is no menu or something like that, you can everything trying by doing

the only digital thing is midi, there is one knob for that, play your keyboard at the channel you wish, push that button - done, there is not more to "program"
heh

i could not believe that today synth like that are still build - for that price, handmade in Britain from one person: Tom Carpenter

Best quote from the online manual in regards to one of the functions:

"Oscillator sync is where the VCO’s waveform can be reset by another signal. Don’t worry about the technicalities. Just use the feature and enjoy the sound!"

(bold added for emphasis by myself lol)

This thing sounds like a dream - and I really like the idea of buying British (as I've said in other threads, I'm soon to be buying a Cirklon too).

Definitely going on the short list with the PerFourMer (so there might be a thread of P4M vs L-s which starts with me getting downvoted and culminates in buying both lol).

Thanks for sharing your videos and opinions here guys.

That PerFourMer looks cool! I'll bet that's not cheap either...

I did another little jam using the Leipzig-s if anyone cares.
The first loop you hear however comes from the Korg MS2000R:

Dam your eyes sir - that sound!

The PerFourMer mk2 is about the same price as the Leipzig-sk (and would be so beautiful together...)

Cool sounds , experiment with attack & release, that in combination with other things sometimes does real (good) crazy things

Considering how much gear I've acquired just over the past couple months... I think I'll be good for a while. I need time to learn what I now own! (;

Hmmmm.... I didn't see any ADSR-type features on the Leipzig... though maybe its hidden, just as Resonance is labeled "Emphasis".
Old 10th October 2013

No, there are no special features for that listed or described.
But the behavior with that is sometimes so completly different to that used by other synth, i cannot describe it better - try out
Old 10th October 2013

Fair enough.
And I must say from the little bit that I've tinkered w/ the Leipzig-s I've seen how it does seem to have a life of its own at times... or just the behavior seems unpredictable, or I'm still totally not understanding the flow of things.
Either way, it does carve out some amazing analog sounds. This is a keeper for sure. A very unique machine.

I looked at the Vermona Perfourmer line and have no interest in the MKII... I do, however, like the original one (looks similar to the DRM-1), but I think it would force me to have to buy a 2nd MAQ 16/3 just to operate it since it's like several synths in one. Crazy stuff.

Actually, digging further into the manual I found the Leipzig-s DOES have ADSR envelope control, its just, again, a bit cryptically labeled:

(pay very close attention to the THICKNESS of the line on the wave drawing)

Does this thing do soft, warm and creamy as well as the more punchy, percussive and possible aggressive sounds (as it appears to be praised for).
I'm down to a very shaky and expensive 3g data from my archaic phone at the moment so chasing YT vids might cost as much as the synth itself!

I'm waiting till next check and I'm getting the one without the sequencer the bass on it is huge!

I'm quite sold on pairing this (key version) with the Vermona PerFourMer; but if they both cover exactly (or VERY similar) the same ground then I'd go for Leipzig (first lol)

I just now finally sampled Hogberto's little loops - they're NICE! Sorry I missed them before. Samples like these help me feel better about the Leipzig-s, as I'm still figuring out this beast.
