The Atlantis Love Thread

The Atlantis is my favorite of the SH-101 inspired synths and I wanted to start a thread with demos and music prominently featuring the little stinker.

I’ll kick it off with one of my all time favorites

Another classic! Really lovely microtonal intervals and subtle use of the resonant filter.

I’ve put my Atlantis in a skiff with a few extra oscillators and utilities. It works well with my digitone, which provides the sequencing and additional arrangements.

Years ago I sold my beloved Juno-6. STUPID!!!

The way I used it, was mainly as a monophonic synth. Using the arp trigger in to create basslines. Do I miss the sounds…

Since a week I have an Atlantis. [insert strong language as in mylarmelodies videos]**********[/insert strong language as in mylarmelodies videos] The sound really comes close. Especially with a Feedback Modules 106 chorus next to it. And with a Happy Nerding SuperSawtor, instant JP80x0… (hmmm…maybe have to do a video with).

Really like the possibility of FM and velocity. Things I could not do with my Juno-6 and they sound great! (Combining “Level” and “Filtermodulation” can result in 303-ish accents!).

Yeah…I love it!

This track (by Steve Rachmad) from 2004 is called “Atlantis”…
coincidence?

Please do! The Atlantis is such a great starting point for all kinds of patches. There should be at least a few more demos floating around.

I brought home a second Atlantis today :smiley:

It’s the older kind with the blue outlines, and the previous owner had customized the knobs. I will upload pics after I install it.

In the mean time I just though I should share another classic Atlantis video.

edit1: It looks like both my units have the initials “CM” on the back. Anyone know who CM is?

edit2: and now the other side.

I just wanted to check, was the name Atlantis a Drexciya allusion?

Nice looking rack! What’s that between the Multi FX and Quadratt?

ah that’s the mult1u with 5 jack lights plugged into the top row :slight_smile:

LOL, that’s as good a place any to keep your 5 jack lights.

Also nice double chronoblob 2! I have the mk1 chronoblob and love how it sounds with a filter in the feedback loop.

I had the Chronoblob 1 as well, and I loved the noise that thing had. Really pleasing to my ears, good texture and musically pleasing.

I love my Atlantis. It was in my hands for several months before pairing it with the Metropolis and playing if for the first time. That experience was recorded here:

It starts very slow then I play the Atlantis with my right hand and discover to my surprise so many features that are playable with a fairly subtle touch. It’s truly a genius complete voice.

Love the freeform exploration! Also, that is a nice lush reverb to fill out the sound :slight_smile:

Thanks for your comments. It was way more playable than I initially realized. The Atlantis lands on my small list of “never sell modules”. I used a Strymon Big Sky for the reverb.

Some nice oscilloscope footage in this one.
