Sunday Synth Jam: Kebu’s video for his remix of Above & Beyond’s You Got To Go is part synth porn, part synth jam and part tutorial, with call outs throughout explaining how key pieces of gear are being used.

Sunday Synth Jam: Pinn Panelle does a great job of translating heavily produced dubstep into live performance, with their take on Skrillex’s Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites.
The band describes the video as a performance demonstrating “how to replicate an electronic artist’s music on live instruments. There are no sequences, or backing tracks playing behind the band. All wobbles are live.” Continue reading →
DinSync has introduced the DrumDokta DRM-110 Drum Module for Eurorack synths.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
At it’s core is a 1:1 clone of the old school Boss DR-110.
The project started since I was often using more than 50% of my modular just to make drum sounds. Sure there are already drum modules on the market but most take up vast amounts of modular real estate and that’s not to mention the price.
As with what seems to be the trend with my modules, this will most likely be a limited edition. The first units should be available for shipping in around two months time.
Pricing is TBD. See the DinSync site if you want to get on the waiting list.
Roland has introduced the Juno-Gi Synthesizer – a new keyboard that features an onboard eight-track digital recorder and pro effects created by BOSS.
Record directly to a single high capacity SD card for up to 192 hours of possible recording time with a single 32 GB card.
