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

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…


The Hard/Soft Option Pt. 1

Man, can I come up with some strange blog names or what! As the name slightly suggests, in today’s blog, I will be documenting my journey into integrating hardware with software, more specifically, my iPad with the Volca Series, by Korg. Unless you have an insanely short attention span, you will also notice that this…

Most iOS musicians(as many of us have adopted the term) can produce complete tracks inside of the iPad without ever needing to use external synths or devices, save the occasional audio input interface. What about those who…


Using DM2 with Caustic Editor to Load Samples into the Volca Sample

Howdy folks. I started a step by step article on how to use DM2, by Audionomy, to create your own drum samples and then load them up into a Korg Volca Sample, via Caustic Editor. I actually finished the video first, so instead of being redundant, I’ll skip that and take you straight to the…


Fugue Machine Gets an Update

That’s right, my favorite sequencer gets an update. Fugue Machine is a multi-playback sequencer that allows you to have up to four different parts played off the same sequence simultaneously. You can manipulate each playback by changing the pitch, speed and direction of the playback head. Arguably, the most significant change in the update is…


And Now, Something Completely Different.

When I was first trying my hand at creating content for my YouTube channel, I was always searching for things to do. One such idea I had was to score some life footage I had shot while waiting in line at a hot air balloon festival. Consequently, I had just worked on an ambient piece…
