A tutorial on how to use the Elektron Analog 4 and using it to program “Photographic” by Depeche Mode – from the perspective of a seven-year-old kid. In Swedish, filmed in one go. English subtitles are available as well.

My 7-year old son started to learn my Elekron Analog Four, and actually got pretty good at it. Since he loves “Photographic” by Depeche Mode (and had been playing it on the piano) he taught himself to program it into the A4.
One day I thought I should just capture what he’s doing on video to keep as a memory, and a the same time learn a two-cam setup. This is the result – all filmed in one go. There are English subtitles available in the video as well.

Here’s a recreation of the classic bass line from Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” (Violator!) using DM-style methodologies.
By utilising a step sequencer and a flexible analogue synth (Analogue Solutions Oberkorn & Telemark respectively), you can produce the moving / transitional effects inherent in a complex bass sequence such as this one.
Given the timing of the pattern, the Oberkorn was MIDI-stepped manually (see Midi-Stepping an Analogue Sequencer video for more information) and the pitch transposition was handled via MIDI as well. Alternatively, the pitch could be played live via MIDI.
The key is to take advantage of the precise opening and closing of the filter via Oberkorn CVB.
All settings will ultimately be approximate, as analogue synths will differ from machine to machine. Use the settings as starting points and then tweak away!
Enjoy (the Silence).
Toa Mata Band is known as the World’s first LEGO robotic band controlled by Arduino Uno which is hooked up to a MIDI sequencer. In this video, the third episode, the robots are playing some unconventional drum-percussions made by some food packaging are captured by a contact microphone (piezo) and processed in real time in the D.A.W. Ableton Live. A brand new device appears for the first time, it’s a moving platform on x-axis, made of Lego bricks, gears and servo motors that permits to move with semitones-steps the tiny synth.
The song is a cover of the famous synth-pop band Depeche Mode, it’s a personal tribute to the band who made my days in the 80’s.
The performance was recorded live in July 2014.

A new tour, a new live DVD, the recipe is well known by now. Out in September is a brand new Depeche Mode live DVD including the 2 concerts the band gave on 25 and 27 November 2013 at the Berlin O2 World venue during their Delta Machine Tour. The film direction is again in the hands of Anton Corbijn. More details will be revealed soon as there is as of yet no officialword out yet. A Blu-ray is expected to be released.
UK chamber folk outfit SixToes will see the follow-up to their 2008 debut “Trick Of The Night” released on July 14 on Toe Music and titled “The Morning After”. The album will feature the song they recorded with Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan: “Low Guns”. The song was released last year as a single.
