Korg Does It Again with iWavestation

I guess the old cliché is true, absence makes the heart grow fonder. I had spent approximately three months away from writing on this blog, with many false starts, only to realize that I just wasn’t ready to begin. This all changes in January of 2017, when I will re-launch my blog, YouTube channel and…


The Hard/Soft Option Pt. 3

Narrator(read this as if Morgan Freeman was talking): The saga continues with Brian donning his mad scientist lab coat and that crazed look in his eye. All the wiring and routing has affected him negatively. Between finding a signal path that will accommodate his sonic needs and making an organized and aesthetically pleasing array of…


The Hard/Soft Option Pt. 2.5

Yes, I know. Decimal points on a multi-part series is silly, considering that the decimal point is actually a part unto itself. I digress. My reason for doing this is simple, really. I’m working on part three, but haven’t finished testing connections yet. So technically, this should be part four…maybe, I don’t know. Last night,…


The Hard/Soft Option Pt. 2

On part one, we left off at introducing the cast of characters. The ridiculous part is, I have more gear than I probably need for such a project. Since the last post, I’ve spent hours designing this rig in my head, from exactly what gear I plan to use to how I’m going to route…


Moodscaper Gets a HUGE Update

A couple of posts ago, I gave a write up on Rob Jackson’s moodscaper. I mentioned that there were some updates coming that would drive the app further towards live use. I have great news to report. That update happened today! After the initial release of his app, Rob has been listening to those of…


Rob Jackson’s Moodscaper: Is It an App? Is It an Album? Is It Both?

If you are a fan of Ambient music, the do I have a treat for you! The iPad Musician page on Facebook sees artists and developers interacting with each other. Sometimes, the developers are artists themselves. I’ve met quite a few of them now, and usually, they had developed apps out of necessity. There would…


DM2 by Audionomy

The mobile musician community was blindsided this week by a fresh app from Audionomy, the DM2. DM2, as it’s name describes, is the sequel to Fingerlab’s DM1. Okay, so maybe that’s not an appropriate title for this app, but from my understanding, DM2 was developed by a team that included developers from DM1. Comparing the…


Moog Releases Model 15

I have always had a fascination with modular synthesis. All those knobs, wires and lights made me feel like I was controlling some sort of doomsday device or like I was piloting a giant spaceship. Unfortunately, I cannot afford such equipment. The closest thing I have to owning anything modular is my Arturia Microbrute and…


The Great Audiobus/IAA/AU Conundrum

When I first saw the iPad, I wondered what use I would have for such an item. Was this a novelty item? Was it for business, games or just another reading device like the Nook? I originally wrote it off as just another overpriced toy with no real value for music, but boy, was I…


Fugue Machine Revisited

Today, I post a throwback video from my first days of Youtube. I take a look at Fugue Machine from Alexandernaut.     Recently, Fugue Machine had been updated to have Ableton’s Link.   You can purchase Fugue Machine here: Fugue Machine | multi-playhead sequencer – Alexandernaut
