Novation Launchkey Now Available

Novation has officially launched the new Novation Launchkey with RGB velocity-sensitive pads and three sizes: 61, 49, and 25 keys (all three pictured). If you missed it, be sure to see the Novation Launchkey video featuring Gentry here.  The following is the official press release from Novation:

"Introducing the updated Launchkey, now with RGB velocity-sensitive pads.

Novation's Launchkey keyboard controller is the is the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music in Ableton Live, and it has just been given an exciting upgrade. It now features RGB velocity-sensitive pads that match users' clip colours, making workflow in session view far more intuitive.

Take Control of Ableton Live
With enhanced RGB feedback and immediate, automatic integration with Ableton Live, Launchkey gives you instant hands-on control of your session view, instruments, effects and mixer, to let you concentrate on making music. Full colour RGB LEDs mean the pads match the colour of your clips, while velocity- sensitivity lets you really put some feeling into your beats.

Tweak and Mix Your Tracks
Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. The eight rotary knobs are rock solid, to give you confidence when tweaking your instruments and effects. The 49 and 61-note versions give you hands-on control of your mixer too, with nine dedicated faders. Whichever Launchkey you choose, all the controls integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything.

Control All Major Music Software
Although we designed Launchkey for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs control all other major music software too. We call this InControl technology, because it puts you in control.

Everything You Need
Lauchkey comes with absolutely everything you need to start making music: Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and V-Station virtual instruments, plus a comprehensive 1GB collection of production-ready samples from world-leading sample store Loopmasters. It's also fully bus-powered via USB and class compliant, so you can get straight into hassle-free music making.

Novation Launchkey at a Glance
1. Integrate immediately and seamlessly with Ableton Live
2. See your session with full colour RGB pads that match the colour of your clips 3. Create expressive beats on the 16 velocity-sensitive pads
4. Shape your sound by using eight rock solid knobs to control instruments and effects
5. Choose between a 25, 49 or 61-note velocity-sensitive keyboard
6. Perfect your mix with hands-on control through nine full-size faders on the 49 and 61-note versions
7. Compact and tough enough to take anywhere
8. Control all major music software using InControl
9. Plug in and play with USB bus-power
10. Comes with all the software and samples you need to start making music"

By request : apart from some generic riffs the video features some familiar compositions such as David Bowie's "Fame" at 3:25, Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the sugar plum fairies" at 5:40 and Nine Inch Nails' "Head like a hole" at 6:49.

New Arpeggio Hardware Arpeggiator, Sequencer, and Synthesizer Details & Vids


First revealed back in June of 2013, we now have some additional details on the upcoming Arpeggio. Further below are three making-of videos featuring audio from the Arpeggio's built-in AVR synth engine.

Details:

"Introducing arpeggio. A new kind of electronic instrument with an interface so simple you can let your intuition take over. A design focused on seamless composition and performance which gives you the precise control to make any melody you want. Every detail of your sequence at your fingertips. No screens or menus. Arpeggio takes the notes you select and instantly plays them in a looping sequence. Tweak and save note sequences. These form the building blocks of melodic improvisation. String them together to create complex melodies. It’s a blank sketchpad for musical notes. There are no presets. You are the composer.

• Create, play, and save sequences instantly with live arpeggio sequencer.
• Up, up-down, down, down-up, sequence, & random arpeggiator modes.
• Access and chain together up to 512 user created arpeggio patterns.
• Internal 2-oscillator virtual analog monosynth.
• Note division sequencer (1/16th, 1/8th, 1/4 notes etc ).
• USB, 1/4” & 1/8” audio out, MIDI in, MIDI out, CV trigger out.
• MIDI & CV clock sync for syncing to external drum machines (master or slave)
• Control external hardware and software synths.
• High quality internal speaker.
• Takes batteries or power from an AC adapter. Make melodies anywhere!"

Never Ending (MoroderNova,MiniNova,TR-8,Volca Keys)


Published on Aug 9, 2015 Metatron's Cube

"Well, the MoroderNova came in at long last. It has 50 Giorgio Moroder Patches, mostly based off of classic sounds from his previous works. I transferred the new patches to a regular Mininova as well, and we decided to use the pad and arp sounds from The NeverEnding Story(Limahl). The sexy moustachioed Morodernova is running the arp, and the regular one has the pads(not the best shot/angle to see). The Mininova's are joined by the Roland TR-8, and Korg Volca Keys(through the Kp3). The silver Morodernova looks pretty swank(and its the only board with shades and a stache) and paired with the gold Microkorg, looks like a giant pair of Volca Keys and Bass(I am a nerd). No effects pedals or any of that jazz this video(although the morodernova is being sidechained through the TR-8). Thanks for watching/listening!"

ULTRA RARE VINTAGE MOOG ANALOG VOCODER

Moog Percussion Controller Model 1130 with Moog Synthesizer Accessory Operation Manual


via this auction

"This Moog Music Inc. Drum Controller (Model 1130) sends control voltage Information (pitch, gate, volume & filter cutoff) to compatible synthesizers such as the Moog Minimoog. It is in near mint condition. The drum head and body appear practically new.

Below is a recorded demonstration of a Minimoog and this Moog Drum Controller. Listen closely and you can hear there's a microphone on the drum head in addition to the filter cutoff being determined by the strength of the drum hit (which can also be routed to volume or pitch): Moog Drum mp3.

An original copy of the Moog Synthesizer Accessory Operation Manual is included. See my other auctions for a Moog Sample & Hold Controller (model 1125) and a Moog Minimoog in perfect working condition."

Moog Sample & Hold Controller SN 2956


via this auction

"This Moog Music Inc. Sample - Hold Controller (Model 1125) sends control voltage Information (pitch, gate, volume & filter cutoff) to compatible synthesizers such as the Moog Minimoog. Everything works great except the glide slider is broken.

Here's a recent recorded demonstration (with no effects, EQ or mastering) of a Minimoog (See my other auctions) and this Moog Sample & Hold Controller: Moog mp3"

Minimoog Model D SN 9237 with Extras


via this auction

"Here's a gem that's been in my care since 2002. With her "original" oscillator boards (Serial number 9237), she has a richer sound than the other two minimoogs that have graced my collection. She has no trouble staying in tune, works perfectly and has been cleaned and calibrated, recently. She is played regularly and will be missed.
She has an added push button on the pitch/mod panel which has no function. All keys are even and the contacts are clean. All knob functions are working optimally. There are some irregularities on the wood (as pictured).
The Minimoog's most monstrous tones (as in the mp3, below) are derived by feeding the headphone signal back through the auxiliary input until the overdrive light comes on. Included is a custom switcher box velcroed to the top so the filter's aux input can toggle from this feedback overdrive to an external signal without recabling.
A Moog foot pedal is included. It's wonderful for controlling the voltage of the Minimoog's filter cutoff and can be used for oscillator pitch and volume as well. This pedal, while functioning perfectly, is missing the four pads which screw the bottom plate to the pedal. I'm also including a 2 prong CV Gate bypass plug. It's useful for propping the CV Gate open so you don't have to re-trigger keys to affect an external input's signal with the filter.
She comes with a professional, heavy-duty flight case. The case's foam is old, so I will be shipping her in plastic with additional insulation in the case. The original 'Minimoog Model D Operation Manual' @1974 is included. The original "Service Manual for Moog Minimoog model 204D" is also included."

Yamaha reface iPad App - First look


Published on Aug 7, 2015 Bonners Music

"Yamaha's iPad app for reface allows the user to instantly recall settings and sounds for the complete range of reface instruments. It is connected to the reface CS in this movie, but it works with reface CP, reface YC and reface DX as well.

The app works particularly well with the reface CS because it memorizes all the settings, enabling instant recall of your favourite synth sounds.

You can rate sounds out of 5 stars and also use the app to share sounds with other reface users around the World."

TX81Z Patch Degrader Demo


Published on Aug 8, 2015 John Keston

"This quick demo illustrates how TX81Z Patch Degrader is interpolating between the previous and newly generated parameter values. TX81Z Patch Degrader is a Max for Live MIDI effect that chips away at patches on the TX81Z by randomly changing (or degrading) parameters at a specified rate. What makes the process interesting is that it is now possible to ramp up or down (or interpolate) to the new value rather than changing it instantaneously.

To create the Max for Live MIDI instrument I started with TX81Z Editor 1.0 (http://www.maxforlive.com/library/dev...) by Jeroen Liebregts who was kind enough to share his work on maxforlive.com. I added in the degradation process features and made some adjustments to the interface to make room for the controls. Once I get things shaped up I'll be happy to share the patch if anyone is interested.
