Serge Modular demo at the February 13th Meetup!

Dmitri from COA-Modular has agreed to come to our February 13th Meetup to discuss the Serge Modular and the workshops they are doing at Robotspeak on the third Saturday of every month (starting in February). This is a great opportunity to learn how to build your own Serge Modular and also hear what it sounds like and how these monsters actually work.

Here are some of the topics Dmitri will be speaking about:

– Why they call the 1970s Serge “The People’s Synthesizer”/Brief local history of the Serge Modular Synth.
– What’s so different or cool about The Serge ?
– What they offer at their workshops / how you can get one.

We look forward to seeing you there and don’t forget to bring some music your wrote to share. In the meantime check out COA-Modular at these links:

Intro to Renoise

At last nights meetup there was a lot of people using Renoise to produce music and an equal amount of people that had never heard of it or used it. Below is an introduction video to Renoise and you can also click here to see the main overview on the Renoise website.

Added bonus: Check out this article from Create Digital Music about artist Dkon and an album he did using only a Korg Poly 800 and Renoise.

New Elektron Analog Four

The new Analog Four from Elektron was a topic of discussion at November’s meeting. Musician DataLine has a couple of videos demonstrating the A4’s abilities, just in time for the December 3rd shipping date. I for one am seriously considering pairing this up with my Dave Smith Tempest.
