Nova Drone v1.3 – experimental analog synth

August 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Nova Drone is an open source, analog experimental sound and light synth.
It it can be used to create effects ranging from slowly fading drones to chaotic harmonic sequences. It also functions as a complex visual pattern generator when combined with a digital/phone video camera. See the video below for an example of the color patterns generated by holding a camera up to the LED.

The Nova Drones offers 12 potentiometers, 10 switches, 6 oscillators, 9 oscillator sync inputs, 6 frequency modulation inputs and an epic 15 voltage outputs as well as 3 high current outputs for controlling external LEDs. All of the ins and outs have been routed to a prototyping breadboard at the bottom of the unit which allows for liberal experimentation and development of custom circuits. The prototyping area is especially useful for syncing the oscillators of 2 or more Nova Drones together.

Native Instruments has launched Magnate Hustle, a new Maschine expansion pack tailored to the multi-faceted sound of today’s urban pop styles.

MAGNATE HUSTLE provides producers of urban pop, R&B, and hip hop with a wealth of melodic material. An exclusive selection of guitar licks and chords allows beat makers to drop melodic and harmonic elements directly into their tracks. Licks can be used as they are or be chopped up within the MASCHINE environment for adding a personalized touch to projects. A set of multi-sampled instruments including basses, acoustic and electric pianos, and synths, plus vocal hits and one-shots provide additional melodic possibilities and texture. And a set of new MASSIVE presets designed specifically for contemporary urban pop offer producers near-limitless sonic variation for their tracks.

MAGNATE HUSTLE’s selection of drum sounds includes a versatile set of samples processed for maximum punch plus four kits consisting of all-new presets for the MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths. The MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths allow users to adjust drum sounds on the fly, further tailoring the sound or adding a dynamic performance element to their music. The sounds were designed and tweaked by producers currently working on major label projects. Their expertise gives the drums in MAGNATE HUSTLE the larger-than-life sound of platinum-selling records heard in the charts worldwide.

A condensed version of MAGNATE HUSTLE is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features three projects, four drum kits, and three instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

Magnate Hustle for Maschine 2 is available for purchase for $49 USD/49 EUR/£44 GBP. The iMaschine expansion is available at the in-app store for $0.99 USD/0.89 EUR/£0.69 GBP.

After a full year of development, we’re excited to release a new iPad Touchscreen Device Editor for Ableton – called PULL.

In a nutshell, this software allows you to edit fullscreen versions of every ableton device from your iPad . It follows any device that is currently selected and displays a very large, multi-touch template on the iPad for editing.

We noticed that while there are some great controllers for Ableton, most of these lack intuitiveness when editing devices (only allowing you to edit the 8 banks of parameters at a time, using generic knobs).

PULL is set to change this, providing much larger, full screen, multi-touch versions that are designed to look just like Ableton devices.

The software uses a combination of Ableton, Max for live and the Lemur iPad app to achieve this.

Area of various musical score, James Analogue Booblebath EP was released in 1891, the results of the first series, he decided to record his gown music. Another influential London radio station piss FM’s attention, and then label immediately signed him to their rooster, then post & poplieereRS. That same year, James Acid shithouse to promote the song and trying to lift Grant Wilson-CLARIDGE on a biscuit founded his label Rephlex Records. Selekted Flambient Works moving to London and Release 85-92: After a while, the two main points to be made, round the bend

More immediate and critical success of his debut internationally. Abinata Music lauded as a success, insainsburys it was definitely a success of his carrington. Full steam ahead barreling out that several other singles and EPS are given, and in 1493 was a record collapse.

Her next full-length record together since 1995 … I think it she will be issued.

Friday morning video bonanza featuring: Rational Youth, Testcard F and Indochine

August 22, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Video desciptions:

Taken from the COLD WAR night life LP released in 1982 on YUL Records. 24bit/96kHz rip from vinyl. This song is a synth masterpiece.

obscure music for nerdlings

———————————————-

Minimal synth band from Norwich (UK) Formed in 1981, Testcard F were at the leading edge of Techno Pop, building their own electronic percussion and happily ignoring all musical conventions. From a modest start with a demo on Radio Norfolk (yes it used to feature local bands) the Testies amassed a small and enthusiastic following. Live performances were enjoyably shambolic and involved hitting litter bins, coat racks and other items salvaged from UEA to give a human feel to the proceedings.

Yamaha organ experiment: Down, Down, Down, Marvelous

August 21, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

John L Rice was messing around with running the great organ sound from a Yamaha TX81Z through a Strymon Mobius to make it sound twice as great and he ended up adding a modular sequence bass line, recording a bit of it and then throwing some Cory Friesenhan vocal loops on it.
