Product description:

Performance Synth is Clockwork Software’s amazing synthesizer for the iPad. Performance Synth can express an almost infinite variety of unique sounds using its subtractive synthesis architecture. While Performance Synth doesn’t have every feature a stand alone synthesizer has, you have in your hand an amazingly powerful tool in a portable, use anywhere format. As the name implies, Performance Synth is meant to be played in real time. If you are a guitar or bass player you can carry around a complete musical synthesizer in your guitar case and use it where ever you need it. Performance Synth’s architecture and capabilities are similar to that of a Mini-Moog or a Roland Juno synthesizer. Many of the synthesizer sounds heard in todays contemporary music and movies can be reproduced with Performance Synth. Unlike old analog synthesizers, Performance Synth is implemented entirely in software which means all timing is rock solid and Performance Synth will never, ever go out of tune. Performance Synth turns your iPad into a complex musical instrument which will take time to completely master. In experienced hands, Performance Synth is a serious musical instrument. For all users, Performance Synth can be a source of wonder and delight with the multitude of sounds and sonic textures it can create.

Performance Synth has the following features:

- Three voice polyphony

Conrad Tao: “iridescence,” for piano and iPad – From ‘Voyages’

May 23, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Pre-order the album at http://www.smarturl.it/ConradTaoVoyages
For more info visit http://www.conradtao.com/
This ground-breaking composition, from 18-year-old American pianist/composer Conrad Tao’ debut full-length album Voyages, features Conrad using the Reactable Mobile app on his Apple iPad, incorporating both synth lines and real-time processing of his piano playing, via the iPad microphone. Conrad describes the piece as being inspired by the phenomenon of “fractured light, that appears differently depending on what angle you look at it from,” while also incorporating the concept of modern technology and its ever-changing development.

Conrad was listed in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list of noteworthy musicians in 2011 (the only classical musician featured), and hailed by renowned music critic Harris Goldsmith as “the most exciting prodigy to ever come my way” (Musical America).

“Conrad is the kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music”

Mutemath performs Blood Pressure live in the Moog Sound Lab

May 9, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Back in 2011 Mutemath stepped into the Moog factory to record a Moog Sound Lab Session, here they transform “Blood Pressure” from their 2011 LP “Odd Soul”.

For those of you curious about the instrumentation:

“Blood Pressure” fades in with Darren playing pulsing bass lines in the verse and higher etherial notes on Animoog, being controlled by a Minimoog Voyager.

Paul sings and plays a Little Phatty Stage II, holding out elongated single lines while opening and closing the Filter Cutoff knob with the Resonance set high.

Roy uses his Minimoog Voyager Select Series for low rumbling bass to hold the foundation.

Darren plays the Trap-Kat, triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for rhythmic echo.

The Tallest Man on Earth performs There’s No Leaving Now live in the Moog Sound Lab

April 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Swedish folk artist Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man on Earth, stepped into the Moog Sound Lab along with Strands of Oaks to reinvent the title track from his 2012 album There’s No Leaving Now. Matsson trades the solo piano of the original song for the infinite sustain of the Moog Guitar which he plays through an MF-103 12-Stage Phaser and an MF-104Z Analog Delay. In a rare moment of collaboration Strands of Oaks’ Timothy Showalter accompanies Matsson on a Minimoog Voyager while drummer Chris Ward uses a Trap-Kat midi controller to trigger the percussive sounds of three Rack Mount Voyagers.
