The guys at Sonic Faction send word of a new instrument that they’ve released for Ableton Live, the EvilFish 303:
Sonic Faction meticulously sampled the Devil Fish 303 and added their own tweaks and mods to it. The result is a pure, raw-sounding, viscous, analog beast! Plus, this is one of the first Ableton Instruments to come with its own custom Max for Live patch for fully integrated control and step sequencing on a Novation Launchpad.
High quality multi-sampled analog instrument
6 levels of real analog overdrive, 5 types of digital distortion
8 filter types including classic 303, LP, HP, BP, Vintage
Built in FX Rack: Waveshaper, FM filter, Pumper, Delay
Includes custom made Max for Live step sequencer for Launchpad
EvilFish 303 is available for $19.99 at the Sonic Faction website. It includes the free Max for Live patch.
MacBeth Studio Systems has a new 3U series of synth modules on the way – the X-Series.
Here’s a sneak preview of these new modules, featuring black and white close up knob tweaking that borders on the fetishistic.
“This is first short intro vid for the new Macbeth X-Series Modules in 3U,” say Ken MacBeth. “You are basically listening to one oscillator triggering two dual EGs sweeping the the dual SV filter- so it’s one filter module that you are hearing!”
Specs and pricing are to come but the MacBeth site has info on the initial set of modules. The modules are expected to be available from Analogue Haven and Schneidersladen shortly.
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.
