Moog Sub 37 Review

December 12, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Moog’s new affordable mono seems to be the bee’s knees. We take a look at the SUB 37 Tribute edition.
For review notes: http://www.sonicstate.com/news/2014/1…

“The Sub 37 feels like a properly grown up synthesizer,” notes Batt, “with really musical parameter scaling – and is well worth the asking price.”
The Sub 37 Tribute Edition is a limited edition (2-note) paraphonic analog synthesizer. It’s built on the Sub Phatty sound engine, but its panel features 40 knobs, 74 switches and has a dedicated LCD display.

Xils-lab PolyKB II Analog Morphing Synthesizer Plugin Review

November 22, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Checking out PolyKB II from Xils-lab, it’s a plugin based on the vintage Poly Kobol analog synth from RSF syntheszers. It has a classic interface with morphable oscillators and a bunch of other modulation options. Most importantly, it has a very warm and vintage tone to it, I was definitely sleeping on this one. Excuse the extra blank space at the end of the video, forgot to remove it lol.

MUTE SYNTH Review – Wet & Dirty #TTNM

November 4, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here is a very serious review and sound demo of the Dirty Electronics Mute Synth I, a handheld noise synth with a twist … or tilt. More info below. Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c…

The Mute Synth is controlled by bridging connections with your fingers. It’s a weirdly fun noise maker and I’m looking forward to the Mute Synth II, which is just around the corner. What do you think?

Soulsby Atmegatron 8-bit hackable monophonic synth review

May 2, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Checking out the brand new Atmegatron synthesizers from Soulsby. It’s a crazy little desktop synth with tons of waveforms, 15 filter types, the ability to upload your own waveforms, and even change or hack the OS to turn it into a totally different synthesizer! It has a very different front panel so we go through the layout as well as the sounds and I even show you a few of the unreleased OS versions as well as the official Atcyclatron OS which turns it into a wavetable cyclling synth!

December 2, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Reviewer John Krogh expands on the December 2013 print review of Apple Logic Pro X with a screen video tour of new and useful features.

Logic Pro X has more than just a new look — it gives you new options you’ve never had before. You can work the way you always have, with the full power and depth of Logic Pro. Or if you’re exploring ideas, you can choose to work with a more streamlined set of controls to keep things moving right along. You can also personalize Advanced Tools to make your workflow match your creative flow.

The new design also makes it easier to get things done. Transport controls are now located right at the top of the main window. You can easily browse and add more sounds from the Sound Library, conveniently placed next to other track-related controls. Visual snap guides help you quickly align and edit regions. A more responsive, more accurate tuner is just a click away. And Autosave keeps all your work safe and sound. Want to know how something works? Just hover your cursor over any part of the interface for Quick Help tips. To dive deeper, pull up the relevant section of the user manual with a single keystroke.
