cosmic surfin’/Yellow Magic Orchestra (cover)

July 20, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Yellow Magic Orchestra is the first official studio album by Japanese electronic music band Yellow Magic Orchestra, who were previously known as the Yellow Magic Band. Originally released by Alfa Records in Japan in 1978, the album was released by A&M Records in Europe and North America in early 1979, with the United States version featuring new cover art but without the closing track of “Acrobat”. Both versions would later be re-issued in 2003 as a double-disc format, with the American version as the first disc.

The album was an early example of synthpop, a genre that the band helped pioneer. It was also as an early example of a computer-themed album, and contributed to the development of electro, hip hop, techno, bleep techno, and chiptune. The album’s innovations in electronic music included its use of the microprocessor-based Roland MC-8 Microcomposer music sequencer which allowed the creation of new electronic sounds, and its sampling of video game sounds.

The album sold 250,000 copies in Japan and entered the Billboard 200 and R&B Albums charts in the United States.Its most successful single was “Computer Game / Firecracker”, which sold over 400,000 records in the United States and was a top 20 hit in the United Kingdom.

July 18, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

AIRA gear is intuitive and easy to learn. It’s part of what makes it so musically inspiring. But it also has a deep bag of tricks, and these can take time to discover and master. Whether you’re curious about what AIRA can do, or just wondering where to begin, the AIRA Start videos provide a strong base for further exploration.

The AIRA Modular are the next-generation in modular synthesis. Each module can be re-programmed and recall patches using a virtual sub-modular system. This design allows you to customize each effect to your own personal modular system. The AIRA Modular includes:
• TORCIDO modular distortion effect

• DEMORA modular delay effect
• SCOOPER modular scatter/looper

This AIRA Start video for the AIRA Modular is divided into six chapters:

• BITRAZER Modular Crusher/Filter
• TORCIDO Modular Distortion
• DEMORA Modular Delay
• SCOOPER Modular Scatter/Looper
• FUNCTIONALITY showcases the four modules in a live performance and how you can create your own virtual modular patches via the fifteen sub-modules in the AIRA Modular Customizer – available on PC, Mac iOS and Android tablets.
• SETUP: Install the AIRA Modular into a Eurorack modular setup or use as a tabletop device. Learn how to utilise the various connections to your own system.

Whether you’re curious about what AIRA can do, or just wondering where to begin, the AIRA Start videos provide a strong base for further exploration.

The AIRA SYSTEM-1m Semi-Modular Synthesizer is a powerful standalone instrument – the external inputs and the array of CV/Gate connections allow it to be re-patched and to interface with other modular synthesizer systems.

This AIRA Start video for the SYSTEM-1m is divided into three chapters:

• OVERVIEW: A close look at the oscillators, filters, amplifier, envelopes, effects and the available PLUG-OUTs
• SYNC: Learn how to connect to the AIRA MX-1 Mix Performer and TB-3 sequencer via MIDI, and how to create a patch using the control voltage jacks to connect to analog and Eurorack modular synthesizers.
• SETUP: Install the SYSTEM-1 as a 19” rack-mount device, into a Eurorack modular setup or use as a tabletop device
