Enjoy this final video of 2013! Tom Oberheim talks about his amazing Two Voice Pro. He gets into his history in synthesizers, demos the sound and sequencing capabilities, and then goes into a discussion of synths in general.
A little blast from the past (meetup): take a listen to a live performance and demonstration of Grant Marr’s beatboxing rig.
Simple trance with just 1 instrument and drum track. I want one of these! (Thanks, Mike Heymans, for letting us know about this!)
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.
Here is a simple example of how to do a sidechain in Renoise and then in Ableton Live. There are many ways to implement a sidechain but this is a great easy to follow example of how the technique works.
Thank you to McKay Garner (of doppio), CleverCQ/CCQ, Bitwise (Christopher Arnold), Extent of the Jam (Louis Gorenfeld). And also thanks to SAE Institute San Francisco for hosting us!
McKay Garner of the band “doppio” gives an in-depth tutorial on “keyboard drumming”: using a drumKAT MIDI controller with Ableton Live to create the beats and melodic lines heard on their latest self-titled album. McKay also talks about the band’s creative process and their participation in the Music Video Race.
