Tutorial – How to connect your apps with Audiobus and VocaLive

June 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

See VocaLive (with iRig MIC for vocal input) and AmpliTube (with iRig HD as input for guitar and bass) with great apps like Audiobus (of course) and GarageBand in this great video. See how easy it is to connect VocaLive with other apps that are compatible with Audiobus.

Audiobus (from Audiobus Pty Ltd) allows the processing and output of audio apps to be used in real time with other apps, thus “connecting” them much like audio cables connect pieces of gear. Singers can now use VocaLive to add stunning vocal effects to their recordings in other apps like AmpliTube or GarageBand, or add instrumentation from other apps to their recordings in VocaLive.

VocaLive for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and AmpliTube for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are now Audiobus compatible. Audiobus is a groundbreaking new app (developed by A Tasty Pixel in cooperation with Audanika) that allows users to connect the audio of multiple apps, opening up countless new sonic possibilities. For example Audiobus lets users send audio out of one app, filter it through the next one in the chain, and receive it in the third. Vocals can be run through a filter or multifx; or a synth could be looped by a looper and its output sent to a recorder; or an electric piano could be run through a guitar multi-FX app and then into a sampler — all in real time.

Cubasis Demo: Recording Audio using Audiobus

June 9, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A quick demo of recording Audio into Cubasis using Audiobus. In this video Ryan Hemeon has downloaded the master tracks to a Nine Inch Nails song (Wish from the Broken Album) and opened them in Cubasis..

“I remove the guitar from the song and record my own using the Apogee Jam, Ampkit and Audiobus. After recording I play the song through, add a few FX and mess with the mixer a tiny bit.

I used ‘picture in picture’ so you can see me playing the guitar as well. I will doing more PiP videos from now on. I liked how it turned out. :-)

Expect some more Cubasis tutorials soon. They are on their way!”

How to use SampleWiz to create real-time sampling effects for the Radiohead song “Everything In Its Right Place”

The Washington & Lee University Electronic Music Ensemble (EME) performed the Radiohead song “Everything In Its Right Place” in their Fall ’12 concert. This video describes how they utilized an iPad app called SampleWiz to mimic the real-time sampling effects used by Radiohead in this song. EME members Matt Kinderman ’16 and Rodes Brown ’13 explain and demonstrate these techniques.

Under the direction of Graham Spice, the EME capitalizes on the strengths of its individual members. This ensemble calls upon its performers to utilize their instrumental or vocal talents in new ways incorporating electronic music. In addition, those students who specialize in composition, engineering, and production are given the opportunity to showcase their skills in the creation and performance of this contemporary music. A strong visual element is also included in their concerts provided by computer-generated video projections.

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.

Korg Volca Beats and Bass – Direct Recordings

April 14, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Korg Volca Beats – Sound impression recorded directly from the output. I don’t know if this is only with THIS model at Messe but the volume was really low. In the video the volume was raised by 6.4dB, no other mastering or FX took place.

Korg Volca Bass – Direct Sound Recording – Sound impression not mastered or FXed.

Reason: Music in the Kitchen

March 2, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Mixed and Arranged entirely inside Propellerhead’s Reason 6.5 with sounds sampled in my kitchen!!

The ingredients were as follows
A glass bottle to blow air across the top (if its a bottle of alcohol – music automatically gets made)
Microwave (button sounds, door bang, start/stop)
Kitchen Timer
Cabinet drawers and doors
Sink tap, Sink hose spurting water
Refrigerator water dispenser (water falling and the mechanical switch you press your glass against)
Dishwasher switches and lock
2 different blenders
Water falling into a pre-heated pot for that sizzling sound
The crunch of the wrapper of a fiber bar
Almonds falling into a box
Groundnuts in a box
Pulses/Rice in a box
A bunch of empty containers, pots and pans
Running my fingers around the rims of glass
Rice cooker switch
..and…
…the missing ingredient I could not shoot – the ‘insinkerator’ going on and off.
So what’s the recipe then? Mix it till it sounds good. And if it sounds good, it is good.
I had a lot of fun making this. I hope you had fun watching and listening!
