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:

Korg Poly 800 Demo By Alex Juno

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.

Highlights:

- Big Beautiful Digi-Analogue Pads and Polysynth sounds
- Phat moog-style Basses and Leads
- TECHNO MUSSOLINI
- Bullying isn’t Cool Kids!
- Roses
- 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.

Check it out and let us know what you think!
