At Musicmesse 2012, BOSS has announced the VE-5 Vocal Performer, a compact personal effects processor and looper.
The VE-5 inherits effects from BOSS’ VE-20 Vocal Performer pedal, including reverb, delay, double/harmony, and dynamics processing. Also on board is realtime pitch correction and special effects processing via the TONE/SFX category. A built-in phrase looper lets users capture vocal performances with effects and loop them on the fly for exciting real-time presentations.
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.
The analog synths and drum machines were triggered live by a MIDI sequencer and mixed together with the vocal using an analog mixer and hardware effects.
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.
