Roland JD-XI Crossover Synth – Review

March 31, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A new product category for Roland, with 128 note SuperNATURAL synth engine, plus 1 Osc analog (filter) synth voice, vocoder and 4 track sequencer – is it a bundle of fun?

The Roland JD-Xi synthesizer is a new mini-synth that offers an analog monosynth, dual digital synths, 808-style drum sequencing and a digital effects section.

According to the company, the JD-Xi gives musicians the best of both worlds: the warm, smooth response of classic analog, and the clarity and versatility of modern digital.

Stem Decks for DJs: First Look At A New DJ Tool

March 31, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A new audio format from Native Instruments has been announced that allows DJs to break apart tracks into individual elements: get all of the details here:

Stems is an open audio file format that basically stores four ‘stem’ tracks (for example – bass, drums, melody & vocals) along with the full mix. The format is designed to simplify live remixing of tracks, because it provides a standard way to deliver remix-friendly audio.

When playing a track, the Stems format makes it easy to do drop out any of the four stem parts. Native is aiming at broad adoption by making Stems an open format. They also plan to release a free tool for creating Stems files, Stem Creator Tool.

Two things make Stems notable:

  • It’s being introduced by Native Instruments, one of the leading creators of DJ software and hardware; and
  • It’s an open format, so that it can be freely supported by musicians, labels and other hardware and software manufacturers.

Hands on with the Sequential Prophet-6

March 31, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Keyboard magazine visits Dave Smith for an extended demo of the new all-discrete analog Prophet-6 synthesizer.

The Prophet-6 is Dave Smith’s tribute to the classic sequential polysynth, the Prophet 5. But it’s not simply a reissue of a classic. Rather, as Dave puts it, “It’s the result of our effort to build the most awesome-sounding, modern analog poly synth possible.”

The Prophet-6 takes the best qualities of the original Prophet-5—true voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifiers—and adds enhancements such as studio-quality effects, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and more. The result is ‘pure, unadulterated analog tone’, with the stability and reliability of a state-of-the-art modern synth.

Details on the Prophet 6 are available at the DSI site.

Hell Synth: DIY Digital Noise Terror

March 30, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A powerful little drone synth you can get prebuilt or make yourself. Want a different synth? Just swap the chip for a different program

The “Hell Synth” is a palm sized experimental synth you can buy prebuilt or as a kit. Little noise synths are often limited in the scope of their sound, either they grind aggressively like dive-bombing aeroplanes, or drone in massive arrays of humming square-waves.

THIS HELL SYNTH IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT! The range of sounds that come out of this little box will keep you twiddling for hours. There are oceans of glass, lightening fast arpeggios, swarming notes that dance in and out of phase.

This is the fifth version of this synth design and the tenth version of the software. Ive been working to make sure it is fun to use while being full of awesome sounds.

So far there are two programs I have written for it including:

This is a hard-core noise synth with six digital wavetable oscillators, tons of glitch, modulation and waveforms. It also has midi out.

“Arprider” – A Electro Jam

March 30, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Moot Booxlé presents “Arprider”. A Electro Jam. This video demonstrates how the Q175 Arpeggiator syncs perfectly with a computer DAW environment. Logic Pro 9 is sending a pulse of 16th notes from a software synth which is being fed to the Q118 Instrument Interface module, which then feeds the Q175’s Clock Input. It syncs perfectly to the computer’s tempo as Moot grooves along to a sampled Oberheim DMX drum machine.

Detailed patch demonstration follows the performance.
