Eowave Launches Spatiolab Capsule TITAN

September 28, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

capsuletitan

Eowave crew is proud to announce the release of the Spatiolab Capsule TITAN, also available in individual modules. Because Titan has a thick atmosphere able to carry sound waves, the moon is a noisy place…
For a long time, we’ve imagined the music of the space to be a sweet song of gods, crystalline magical sounds. And we thought that the space was a silent place, cold and empty. Since 2004, the Cassini-Huygens mission has recorded some sounds of the space, different from everything we’d imagined before, shock of particles launched in the space at a prodigious speed, a deep chaos, unexpected, which the ESA/NASA has sometimes called « alien sounds »… The Cassini-Huygens mission started the exploration of Titan in 2007.

Since 2000, Eowave designs instruments for electronic music. The Titan Capsule is a fascinating and immersive experimentation mixing space mysteries and music. It will make you explore sound dimensions that are still unknown.

Titan has a very thick atmosphere able to carry sound waves. With the Capsule TITAN, we’ll get onboard to explore how the sound goes across Titan orange thick atmosphere. In a way, the Capsule Titan is a simulation station able to reproduce the journey of the sound waves crossing Titan’s atmosphere and offer the possibility to modulate parameters like the thickness of the haze, the ionisation of the magnetosphere, Titan’s magnetic glow, or low frequency zones.
Price : 699 euros incl VAT / 549 euros (without case, no MIDI interface, no patch cables, no PSU).

The sounds of Uber Synth for iPad

August 27, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The new synthesizer from Intelligent Gadget. Uber Synth: a polyphonic multi-timbral FM synthesizer. Its particularity is that you will be able to map any number of preset or custom sound patches to different positions on the keyboard. Note that the underlying sound engine is the same polyphonic triple-oscillator cross-modulated FM synthesizer used in the xMod. Uber Synth is Core MIDI compatible and supports MIDIRTP for wireless control. My conclusion: I really love when a developer finds a new (good) idea… And here we have one… To be able to map any preset so easily and fast on your keyboard. Great! A Killer Synthesizer!

Resurface (Improvisation for Gestrument)

August 4, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Gestrument in action, details below:

Preparation for this piece involved sorting through lots of soundfont sample sets, or fashioning new sets to import into the iPad generative sampler and touch performance tool, Gestrument. (gestrument.se/) I selected eight different sample sets and fired up Audiobus on iPad 3, plugged in the excellent new reverb AUFX:Space, piped output to Audioshare, and linked the output to Logic on a laptop.

Gestrument tip: arrange your samples in a hierarchy so it is easy to distinguish between ‘beds’ and ‘stabs’ and ‘fx.’

For me, this allows me to toggle through the main sonic content and what I think of as secondary ‘commentary.’

I pick up a feel for the generative pace of the performance and then respond intuitively. In this instance the BPM is 10, GLIDE is set to slowest, and, HOLD and CONTINUOUS PULSE is set to [on]

UVI has released WaveRunner, a library of seven hybrid instruments inspired by synths, drum machines and rare prototypes of esteemed German heritage.

WaveRunner presents you with a 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 seven unique hybrid instruments driven by over 30,000 samples.

WaveRunner features

  • WaveRunner 360: Based on a very old and quite rare machine, WaveRunner 360 delivers a raw and lo-fi sound.
  • WaveRunner Terminal D: Including sounds from vintage prototype drum modules, synths and modern rack drum synths.
  • WaveRunner Terminal U: Built on a generous collection of sounds from the entire range.
  • WaveRunner 2.0: Based on the original German blue.
  • WaveRunner 2.3: Similar to the 2.0 but with a distinctly different flavor, WaveRunner 2.3 is built on the upgraded German classic and its loquacious programming pal.
  • WaveRunner Orange: Based on the modern flagship wavetable synthesizers famed in the 90′s and 00′s.
  • WaveRunner X: An collection of raw waves harvested from the entire range of machines come together in this fresh and powerful dual-layer subtractive synth; capable of deep, modulating ambiances, brutal basses and uncanny leads.

The WaveRunner library for UVI and MachFive is available to purchase for $299 USD.
