A multitude of synths, drum machines and rare prototypes of esteemed German heritage come together in this massive and unparalleled retrospective. WaveRunner presents you with a wondrous collection of authentic and fascinating sounds from over 30 years of wavetable synthesis. Everything from the raw and strident origins to the wild evolving tones of more modern, full-featured machines. Each system addressed was serviced, meticulously multi-sampled and artfully designed into 7 unique hybrid instruments driven by over 30,000 samples. Both a historical archive of sound and a collection of new and unique instruments with hundreds of presets and limitless sound design potential, WaveRunner is a suite not to be missed.

WaveRunner includes 7 instruments:

Sugar Bytes – Effectrix Synth Live

July 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Dan-D plays around with Effectrix on his latest track!

Effectrix is an advanced effects sequencer, or perhaps I should say was since it appears you are not able to purchase it anymore if you go to Sugar Bytes homepage…

Sugar Bytes describes Effectrix as “as a musical instrument with lots of possibilities for different expressions of existing material. Sounds of any kind can be transformed to exciting beat structures and soundscapes.”

Effectrix lets you do advanced looping -  loops can also be scratched, stretched, reversed or modulated in loopsize and pitch.

Adam Fielding on music creation and working with Reason

July 17, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

When Adam and his brother tried programming their own computer games as kids his own attempts were terrible. Fortunately however, the music Adam made for those games using ProTracker software on the old Atari ST computer wasn’t terrible. In fact, it was so good he quickly outgrew what he could achieve on such a basic set up. After a recommendation from a friend and seeing the rack cables in action for himself, Adam was quickly a Reason user and now even pushes Reason to its limits with his epic full-bodied synth soundtracks.

After a couple independent releases, Adam Fielding’s music caught the attention of Distinctive Records in the UK who promptly signed him for those and future releases. Now Adam splits his time between producing his own albums and soundtracks for TV and film use.

We caught up with Adam to check out how he builds up his ideas and arranges them in Reason using Blocks.

Taking a closer look at RB1robotto

RB1robotto demo video 1
Basic configuration, manual playing of the robotic singer and connection to pitch, gate and modulation sources.

www.sound-machines.it

RB1robotto is a voltage controlled singer, an irresistible source of pitched vowels, and much more. The product, the first in our line, was born as a sunday afternoon project, by putting together our modular, ad arduino board and a speech chip. The blending of the ‘voice’ with the noises, tones, and buzz from the modular was so good that we built a company around that.

Now, the production unit is real. Lush steel panel with thick silkscreened prints and deep red tones. You control the ‘voice’ of the robotto with your well known CV sources. Pitch and Gate are the usual dishes, accompanied by vowel and consonant control. Each of those are playable also by hand, and there is a manual gate too, ORed with the jack input.

Experiemental: Blue Beat

July 10, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Blue Beat is a collective, collaborative, choreographic, giant orchestra. By moving over the instruments, registered by a camera, different sounds are triggered from a music computer. At the same time a video beamer mapped to paintings on the wall lit up as a visual reference for the performers. Blue Beat is a part of the Mini Maker Space project at Sweden’s National Museum For Technology And Science and one of 3 projects invented and built by Håkan Lidbo and a team of collaborators. Per-Olov Jernberg did the programming and built the electronics, Tom Walston did the paintings and Frida Vega Salomonsson took the photos in the film below. The project can been experienced at the museum June- December 2013.

Twelve Tones – an introduction

June 30, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This video is a nice introduction to dodecaphonic music theory

Twelve-tone technique—also known as dodecaphony, twelve-tone serialism, and twelve-note composition—is a method of musical composition devised by Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg (1874–1951). The technique is a means of ensuring that all 12 notes of the chromatic scale are sounded as often as one another in a piece of music while preventing the emphasis of any one note through the use of tone rows, an ordering of the 12 pitches. All 12 notes are thus given more or less equal importance, and the music avoids being in a key. The technique was influential on composers in the mid-20th century.

Schoenberg himself described the system as a “Method of Composing with Twelve Tones Which are Related Only with One Another”. However, the common English usage is to describe the method as a form of serialism.

Schoenberg’s countryman and contemporary Josef Matthias Hauer also developed a similar system using unordered hexachords or tropes—but with no connection to Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. Other composers have created systematic use of the chromatic scale, but Schoenberg’s method is considered to be historically and aesthetically most significant.

MikroWave – music sequencer for Android now w/ renewed audio engine

June 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Demo of MikroWave 1.5.0 running on a Asus Nexus 7 tablet (though it will run fine on mobile phones as well). As of this version, the audio engine has been overhauled to run in a native layer for high performance audio with low latency (the delay between an action and hearing the result).

Devices running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) should benefit greatly with an extra increase in performance, while the application runs from Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) upwards.

You can try it for free (NO ads, NO time limits) on Google Play:
