Here’s a quick tour of my studio, including the Synclavier, Radio Baton and the Kyma system. This video was made for the Swedish magazine “Studio”. Sorry, no English, only Swedish and the language of gear =)
This beta video highlights several of Bitwig Studio’s features for working with instrument clips. Switch between clip- or track-based note editing, bring more life into your composition using note expressions and and per-note micro-pitch control, or use the histogram-based inspector function on several notes at once to randomize or spread parameter variances, changing the feel of your instrument clips.

If his music isn’t in your collection, there’s a good chance his sounds are in that synth you own, a videogame you just played or the TV ad you just watched. Watch and let Richard take you on a tour of his North Carolina studio
In this archival clip from May 2010, Mark Mothersbaugh gives us a tour of some of the vintage synths in Mutato Muzika, DEVO’s headquarters in L.A.
Mutato Muzika is a music production company established in 1989 by Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh. While Devo members Mark Mothersbaugh, Gerald V. Casale, Bob Mothersbaugh and Bob Casale, with drummer Josh Freese, often meet, rehearse and confer in its West Hollywood studio facilities — Mutato Muzika is, in fact, a full-service music production company.
Mutato Muzika has produced music for many films, including Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, 13, Lords of Dogtown, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Catfish.

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.

With the CAPTURE Series, Roland once again raises the performance standard for computer-based audio production.
Soundtoys has just released Little MicroShift, the latest in their new Boutique plug-in series, and it’s free for a limited time.
The company tells us that Little Microshift is based on a simple, but effective studio trick for creating wide stereo tracks from mono sources. Originally done using hardware pitch shifters, as well as the original SoundToys SoundBlender plug-in, this technique has been used in pro studios as a “secret weapon” on countless vocals, guitars and more for a widening, doubling and interesting spatial effect that adds focus or power to tracks run through it. Soundtoys says that, now, three of the most popular versions of this effect are available at the touch of a button.
As in years past with Devil-Loc and Little Radiator, Little MicroShift is available free to anyone who can find a friend with a “sharing code”. They’re all over FaceBook and forums like GearSlutz and KVR Audio. Once you’ve got Little MicroShift, you can share it with your friends by using your own unique sharing code. The top share-masters win more cool stuff. The grand prize is an autographed original H3000 D/SE Ultra-Harmonizer from our Gear Closet. The promotion ends on March 29th.
