Sunday Synth Jam: Reader Nico Steckhan shared this music video, based on a live acoustic glitchtronica performance by Audiophil, Hope.
The track is built around a core of guitar, vocals and cajon, but also makes subtle use of Native Instruments Maschine, Korg MicroKorg and even musical saw to create an original blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. . Continue reading
The Electronic Music Works WCS-1 Wave Composition Analog Synthesizer is a MIDI synthesizer module based around a digital oscillator, followed by all discrete analog circuits. According to EMM, the WCS-1 is designed to create ‘unusual and very fat sounds’.
The digital oscillator can produce a variety of waves, using individual wave shapes or combining multiple wave shapes to create complex wave shapes.
The WCS-1 is designed to be used with a MIDI controller, sequencer or other device that provides MIDI out and has a standard 1/4″ mono jack output to connect to mixer or audio interface.
It covers how to use virtual MIDI with other virtual MIDI capable apps (here demo’d with GeoSynth). It also looks at how to control a hardware synth, in this case a Korg microKorg, with Magellan’s MIDI Out feature. You can use Magellan’s arpeggiators, ChordMakers, and sequencer with the MIDI Out.
Magellan is available now in the App Store for US $9.99.
Korg today introduced limited edition 10th Anniversary Color Variations of several of its keyboards and controllers, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the microKorg synthesizer.
Custom versions of the microKORG, microKORG XL+, microKEY-25 and microKEY-37 will alternate color combinations. The Full Black model sports a black finish on the white keys, and the Black & Red model features a black and red reversed keyboard.
