If you’re like us, you were probably expecting Armageddon 2012 to have a little more oomph – maybe some fire in the sky, maybe some zombies.
AfroDJMac wants you to be prepared for this very situation, so he’s created The Armageddon Pack , a large collection of Ableton Live Instruments for adding a little oomph to the Apocalypse.
Here’s what he’s got to say about it:
This video, via opl3toshiba, demonstrates the Frankenkorg 800 – a custom frankensynth, made up of a modified Korg Poly 800, an Alesis Nanoverb, a laptop computer and more.
Here are the technical details:
Reader Paul Bowen tipped us off to his new Korg Poly 800 demo video.
Here’s what he has to say about the Poly 800:
The Korg Poly 800 is a much maligned synth, yes, it’s built out of cardboard, yes, the parameter resolution is about 5-bit, yes, it only has 1 filter for all 8 dco’s, but the thing sounds beautiful! Some folks seem to think that it sounds like a $10 casio but i hope in my video demo that i can prove otherwise
All sounds in this video, except for the drums, come from the Poly 800, moderate effects have been used, delay/reverb/distortion, in places, however the chorus is built in to the unit.
- Big Beautiful Digi-Analogue Pads and Polysynth sounds
- Phat moog-style Basses and Leads
- TECHNO MUSSOLINI
- Bullying isn’t Cool Kids!
- Dirty Techno
- Pimp-ass Dancing
- Stupid facial expressions are optional
You’ll probably be asking yourself why official demo videos aren’t more like this – until techno Mussolini rears his head.
