The New Sound of Music is a vintage BBC documentary (1979) that looks at the development of recorded music, from the first barrel organs, pianolas, the phonograph, the magnetic tape recorder on to the concepts of musique concrete and electronic music.
Dave Smith Instruments earlier this month introduced the Mopho x4 keyboard – a new polyphonic analog subtractive synthesizer.
The Mopho x4 is built on the same voice architecture as the Mopho and Mopho Keyboard, but offers 4 voice polyphony.
This official video features DSI’s Carson Day, demonstrating the sonic range of some of the presets on the Mopho x4. Except for the programs that are obviously played on the keyboard, the x4 is receiving MIDI data from an external sequencer in this demo.
More info on the Mopho x4 is available at the DSI site.
The video explores one of the more unique features of Magellan – the twin independent polyphonic synth engines. It covers: loading presets, foregrounding a synth, adjusting parameters, synth coupling, and other advanced settings.
Magellan is available now in the App Store for $4.99.
