“Spaces in Places” Yamaha MU80 (Percussion) + Nord Lead 1

October 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a simple 8 bar vamp with elaborate percussion I composed on Finale. Nord Lead begins playing at (0:40).
“I created controller patches for the Nord and MU80 on the Nord Modular G1. There are no Nord Modular sounds in this, although it was used as the main controller. Whoever messes around with their portamento settings on their MU80? Easily when the midi CCs are mapped to a controller. Also switched in and out of ‘modulated delay’ preset on the Lexicon MX300. I didn’t want the delay on during the complex drumfills.”

Yamaha Mu80:

Compact in size, but underneath packing a massive xg punch, with 8mb of stunning wave samples, and 64 note polyphony with 2 independent midi inputs, this is the connoisseurs choice in XG devices. With the same simple but powerful user interface as it’s baby brother, the MU50, but with the added bonus of also acting as an analogue effects processor for vocals/guitar/saxophone or anything else you need to process, this is the ultimate in XG.

Clavia Nord Modular (and G2) editors + Microsoft Surface Pro demo

October 7, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This demo goes through using the Nord Modular (0:00) and G2 (6:00) editors on the Surface Pro.

If you want to just know “Does the Surface Pro work well with these editors?” my answer is ‘yes, but…’

The ‘but’ being that it seemed most useful using the pen throughout. While I at first felt that your fingers would work fine for knob twisting and such, even on the Nord Modular editor (not G2), I looked back at the video and felt that my finger still had trouble catching the knobs. However, I would say WITH the pen, you would have very little trouble using the editors. I hope you enjoyed the video and that it provided you with some insight into this combination. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you :)

Nord has announced six new artist sound banks for the new Lead 4 and Lead 4R are now available for free download. They tell us that six very different sound designers have created a wide range of new sounds covering everything from classic analogue vintage leads and pads, FM pianos, evil distorted rave basses and complex performance patches with multilayered synchronized arpeggiating monsters and much more.

The sound creators are ASL SoundLab, Federico Solazzo, Åke Danielson, Palle Dahlstedt, Kristofer Ulfves and Ulf “Vinyl” Stenberg.

The sounds are compatible with the Nord Lead 4 and the Nord Lead 4R and are transferred using the Nord Sound Manager.
