In celebration of the new(ish) html audio element, Jamie made a loose-emulation of everyone’s favorite drum machine: the Roland tr-909. As the drum machine runs using html5 audio, it will, unfortunately, not work on older browsers. For best results, use Chrome and be sure to click the like buttons!

This ground-breaking composition, from 18-year-old American pianist/composer Conrad Tao’ debut full-length album Voyages, features Conrad using the Reactable Mobile app on his Apple iPad, incorporating both synth lines and real-time processing of his piano playing, via the iPad microphone. Conrad describes the piece as being inspired by the phenomenon of “fractured light, that appears differently depending on what angle you look at it from,” while also incorporating the concept of modern technology and its ever-changing development.
Conrad was listed in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list of noteworthy musicians in 2011 (the only classical musician featured), and hailed by renowned music critic Harris Goldsmith as “the most exciting prodigy to ever come my way” (Musical America).
“Conrad is the kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music”
-New York Magazine
Background video description:
My friend Deceptikon (http://deceptikon.net) tries Arpeggionome for iPhone for the first time, connecting it to his MS-20 mini. Levels, drums, and effects with M-Audio Evolution U-Control controlling Ableton Live.
In this video Moog demonstrates the power and versatility of one knob per function synthesis. Watch and listen as the track evolves and changes in response to every touch.
The Sub Phatty is the first analog synth to feature Moog’s transformative new Multidrive section; at low settings Multidrive adds warmth and girth, but when pushed, it delivers a screaming snarl that is highly reactive to resonance, waveshape, and oscillator level. Experiment with this new circuit and unlock an undiscovered world of vivid analog tonalities.

In this tutorial Ryan Hemeon goes over some of the basic features of Auria and some of it’s limitations. Setting Tempo, Transport options, Audio Paste, etc.. Then he shows how to record audio into Auria using Audiobus. He starts off recording Animoog and then add to it by using Guitarism as a midi controller for iGrand. He is using an iPad 3rd gen.
“I also take 3 seconds to explain how to pronounce “Animoog” not that I listen to my own advice.
I hope this tutorial was helpful, look forward to upcoming Auria tutorials for more advanced techniques.”
