benge2500 drumz – ARP 2500 in action

July 13, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

drum pattern on the ARP 2500.

“Had Stephan in yesterday working on a new Natural Habitats track. We set up the ARP2500 and made some drum sounds. It really is an amazing instrument the 2500. Here is a live tweak I did a bit later messing with a snare drum type sound. There is absolutely no reverb added to this, it is all done with the envelope generator and various filters and white noise. The rest of the loop is done with cross-mod vcos and the sequencers. Listen on headphones”

More info: http://blog.dubspot.com/logic-trap-3/
Matt Shadetek returns with another episode of Secret Knowledge, our video tutorial series of production tips, techniques and advice for Logic users. In this concluding chapter tutorial on trap drum programming, Shadetek explains how to put all the ingredients together in a mapped MIDI instrument so you can easily trigger kick, snare, hi-hats, and snare rolls. In case you missed the previous tutorials within this series, check out parts one and two.

Getting started with mSequencer

May 16, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here is a tutorial on how to get started with mSequencer (MIDI Pattern Sequencer). In this video I use mSequencer to control all 8 channels of Korg’s iPolySix via virtual midi. This video doesn’t even begin to touch what a great app this is. If there is interest in it, I will definitely be making more videos on some of the more advanced procedures you can use as well as a lot of other options I couldn’t get to in this video.

I highly recommend using an external midi controller with this app to build your sequences.

Conclusion: This is an excellent app for anyone wanting to program midi sequences and send them to apps via virtual midi. It gives you a larger range of control then any other sequencer app I have ever used. This app does not support Audiobus but it definitely should. Well worth it’s price.

Grab this app on the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/midi-…
