Free Music Friday: Reader Cabaal, who’s participating in the 2012 Red Bull Music Academy for upcoming producers, let us know about his new album, which features the analog goodness of the Roland Juno 60:
Huge fan of the site, and have been for many years. I’ve just released a new album made with Logic 9, some VST’s, and a whole lot of Juno 60!
In the spirit of Free Music Fridays, the entire album is available for free download here.
Thanks for listening, and thanks for Synthtopia!

This tutorial video, via the guys at XSSR Academy, takes a look at using Compressor in Ableton Live.
XSSR’s Alex Mars covers the topic of compression in music and how various Compressor controls affect the sound.

Sweetwater’s Editorial Director Mitch Gallagher takes a look at the iRig Stomp iPad interface for guitar, plays with the Amplitube guitar amp modeling app, and explains the difference between shutting an app down and putting it to sleep.

While this episode of his iOS Update focuses on guitarists, that doesn’t mean you can’t abuse Amplitude for your own evil purposes.
This video, via Chris at ohdratdigital, takes a look at chopping vocal melodies in Ableton Live.
