Synth Stuff Ep. 51 - Kawai K5

Published on Nov 14, 2018 tritonrecordings

"Apart from the elusive K5000, this completes the Kawai K-series synths! You'll notice this video is short and that's because most of these sounds are D-50 preset knock-offs. This might be my lest favorite K-series synth. I know some amazing sounds can be made with it (these are factory sounds) but I DARE you to program it. Go on, try it. Two of my absolute favorite synths are known to be 'difficult to program' - the DX7 and Matrix 6...but I'll pass on programming this. Still, there is potential in any synth and it does have a lovely digital sound if that's what you're after. It's a bit like a noisier ESQ-1, maybe."

Published on Nov 14, 2018 Chris Bran

"I am presenting here my Ultranova sounds, some of them are factory presets altered by me. Many of them are sharp sounds to emphasize how good and fat its filters are.

Prezentuję tutaj moje brzmienia z Ultranovej, niektore z nich to presety fabryczne przeze mnie przerobione. Wiele z nich to ostre dzwięki aby podkreślić jak dobre i tłuste są jej filtry."

PreSonus ATOM Controller Now Available

See this post for the demos and initial announcement. New press release on the... release follows. Street price is $149.95.

"Baton Rouge, Louisiana—November 2018... PreSonus®’ new ATOM pad controller is both a compact, dynamic performance controller and a versatile production controller. Produce beats, play virtual instruments, and trigger sound effects and loops in real time with unsurpassed expressiveness and flexibility using ATOM’s 16 full-size, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads with selectable pad velocity curves and pad pressure thresholds, 8 assignable pad banks, and other controls.

ATOM connects to a computer via USB and is compatible with most music software but it especially shines when used with the included Studio One® Artist production software for Mac® and Windows®. ATOM and Studio One integrate tightly to deliver a blazingly fast, professional-style workflow. When used with Studio One, ATOM enables you to browse virtual instruments and add them to your session, change instrument presets, create loop points and navigate the timeline, change song tempo, edit and quantize MIDI events, zoom in and out on the timeline or events, control Studio One’s transport, and more.

Along with the 16 RGB pads and 8 pad banks, you get 4 programmable rotary encoders and 20 assignable buttons, enabling you to navigate and set more parameters faster. MIDI Keyboard mode, Note Repeat mode, and Full Velocity mode enable you to custom control your instruments.

In addition to production applications, the velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads are great for playing virtual instruments live onstage. You can set up the pad banks for a full virtual drum set and perform beats and even play multiple ATOMs at once to put on an exciting live show.

A wealth of virtual instruments, loops, and drum kits are included with Studio One Artist. To further fuel your creativity, ATOM also comes with a carefully curated MVP Loops loop and one-shot library custom-designed for ATOM. More content is available from the online PreSonus Shop.

ATOM is available immediately for the U.S. street price of $149.95. For more information, please visit"
