Let’s get physical: MR-808 is the first drum robot that reproduces the drum sounds of the 80s – in the real world.
The robot installation MR-808 is a replica of the famous 1980s electronic drum machine TR-808 – with robots playing the drum sounds! I (Moritz Simon Geist) have been playing electronic music for several years now, and at some place I was bored of the electronic music production process. With binary logic, everything is possible.
So I decided to go back to the roots of sound generation – the physical sound generation – but combine it with the electronic music structure we like so much.
I liked the idea so much, that I couldn’t stop building my own drum robots, and ended up replacing all the electronic sounds of a whole drum computer, placed in a 3,3 x 1,7m² case. I am very proud to present the “MR-808” – a mechanic replica of the famous 1980s electronic drum machine TR-808!

New video from Halo Effect, details below:
Taken from the album “Recoding”
Directed, shot and edited by Antonio Levita @ K-Digital Film.
Androids, virtual reality and rebelling machines, those are the themes for the return of Halo Effect. The new album will bring along new synthetic sounds, belonging to a travel towards distant and futuristic worlds, featuring a cross-over between synthpop and north-european electronic beats. Produced by Mika Rossi (Autodafeh / Endless Shame) who mixed the album giving an international flavor to the sound of the band.
The “RECODING” has already begun!

Thiago Pinhero introduces AAS’ electric piano.
Lounge Lizard EP-4 — Electric Piano
In the studio
When time matters, simply pick from more than 100 custom electric piano presets. But when sound exploration is on the program, players will dig the real-time controls over hammer hardness, tine color and decay, damper noise, and pickup placement for an unsurpassed level of customization.
Live on stage
Gigging musicians will appreciate Lounge Lizard’s small memory footprint, instant preset recalls, and stability. Furthermore, the huge library of Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds as well as the complete selection of effects makes it easy to build a set list and get the perfect tone for each songs.
Alive beneath your fingers
There is something quite immersive when a connection develops between the player and the instrument. Whether it’s the perfectly smooth velocity progression or the interactive reaction to your performance, Lounge Lizard makes that connection happen.
Beyond the electric piano
Lounge Lizard achieves convincing electric piano tones with less than twenty synth parameters. That’s a quite a feat by itself, but pushed further, these parameters reveal a realm of other tones. Organs, bells, chimes, leads are all featured in the preset library’s Experimental folder.
Even though famous players shared the same brand and models, they were all acheiving their own signature sound. Nevertheless, that usually meant spending many hours under the hood with screw drivers, wrenches, or even a solder iron. What’s fun with Lounge Lizard is that whether you’re looking to emulate a particular sound or simply find your own, all those tweaks are just a few knob turns away!

While And One will probably soon announce its departure from SPV to launch the next material on the band’s own label, it also found the time to announce a brand new video: “Aigua”, which is Catalan for ‘water’. The video was directed by Adolf Steinhimmel.
The track does not feature And One’s Steve Naghavi but just guest singer Vivi on vocals. Nice song, nice video.
