I'm guessing based on the name, this is a little tribute to Rosetta: "On 30 September 2016, the Rosetta spacecraft ended its mission by landing on the comet near a pit called Deir el-Medina."

Update: Rosetta's Farewell via APOD

"Image Credit & Copyright: ESA, Rosetta, MPS, OSIRIS; UPD/LAM/IAA/SSO/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA
Explanation: After closely following comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko for 786 days as it rounded the Sun, the Rosetta spacecraft's controlled impact with the comet's surface was confirmed by the loss of signal from the spacecraft on September 30, 2016. One the images taken during its final descent, this high resolution view looks across the comet's stark landscape. The scene spans just over 600 meters (2,000 feet), captured when Rosetta was about 16 kilometers from the comet's surface. Rosetta's descent to the comet brought to an end the operational phase of an inspirational mission of space exploration. Rosetta deployed a lander to the surface of one of the Solar System's most primordial worlds and witnessed first hand how a comet changes when subject to the increasing intensity of the Sun's radiation. The decision to end the mission on the surface is a result of the comet's orbit now taking it to the dim reaches beyond Jupiter where there would be a lack of power to operate the spacecraft. Mission operators also faced an approaching period where the Sun would be close to line-of-sight between Earth and Rosetta, making radio communications increasingly difficult."

KORG M3R | The Most Fascinating Soundscapes | HD DEMO

Published on Sep 30, 2016 AnalogAudio1

"(c) 2016 by AnalogAudio1

Demo of the KORG M3R digital synthesizer from 1989 - The Most Fascinating Soundscapes.

All sounds come from a single Korg M3R played live without additional effects - right from the stereo outputs of the Korg M3R. I played sounds from the following sources:

0:33 - 1:04 M3R factory presets
1:04 - 3:23 Synth 1 (Card Set from Korg)
3:23 - 5:30 Synth 2 (Card Set from Korg)
5:30 - 6:16 Synth 3 (Card Set from Korg)
6:16 - 6:46 L.A. Studio Hits (ROM Card from Key Clique Inc.)
6:46 - 7:11 Sound Effects (Card Set from Korg)
7:11 - 8:48 Environment (Card Set from Korg)
8:48 - 8:59 Akira (ROM Card from Korg)
8:59 - 9:41 World Omnibus (ROM Card from Korg)
9:41 - 9:48 Percussion (Card Set from Korg)

In this video, I tried to play a selection of most fascinating soundscapes from the M3R sound library available. The M3R is very cheap nowadays, it's a good choice if you like digital synth sounds from the nineties!"

Roland Boutique Artist Interviews - Paul Hartnoll, A Guy Called Gerald, DJ Pierre

Published on Sep 30, 2016 RolandChannel

1. Roland Boutique Paul Hartnoll interview

"As one half of the legendary Orbital, Paul Hartnoll knows a thing or two about putting a killer tune together, and just as much about how to recreate that sound live in front of thousands of people.

We visited Paul’s studio to discuss the latest Roland Boutiques, and ended up finding out where Orbital got their first 303 from, and why they think their original TR-909 and TB-303 could be rather special."

2. Roland Boutique A Guy Called Gerald interview

"Making electronic music since the mid ‘80s gives A Guy called Gerald a certain perspective on the industry.
We spoke to the genre-busting producer on his first encounters with the original TR-909 and TB-303, how they helped him get started with his music, and what he thinks of the latest additions to Roland Boutique family, especially the TR-09 and TB-03.

You’ll also find out that 808 State’s ‘Pacific State’ was originally called something completely different…"

3. Roland Boutique DJ Pierre interview

"DJ Pierre is synonymous with the sound of acid house, and although the acclaimed producer has an enviable catalog of productions under his belt, it’s possibly his first release that has had the biggest impact on electronic music culture.

Phuture’s Acid Trax kick-started the acid house genre by subverting the sound of Roland’s TB-303 bassline synth, and we caught up with Pierre to talk about those early years with the TB-303, and what he thinks of the new TB-03 Roland Boutique."

Acid House Innovator and Phuture Co-Founder DJ Spank-Spank has Passed Away

Uploaded on Sep 22, 2011 staxxaquila

Some sad news in via Aaron K.

DJ Spank-Spank passed away on September 21.


"Earl 'Spanky' Smith Jr., producer, DJ and founding member of Chicago house progenitors Phuture, has died.

A post from the group's management confirms that the electronic musician, also known as DJ Spank-Spank, passed away today (September 21). The eulogy calls Smith a 'legend,' and explains that Phuture will continue on and complete an album they had been working on prior to Smith's death"

Another great is gone. You can see how much influence he has had here on MATRIXSYNTH over the years.

He will be missed.

Young Fathers - Shame | Guardian Sessions

Published on Apr 8, 2015 Guardian Music

"Young Fathers perform Shame live in session."

"In a live session recorded exclusively for the Guardian at Total Refreshment Studios in Hackney, east London, Mercury prize-winning Scottish trio Young Fathers perform Shame from their album White Men are Black Too. Fusing elements of post-punk, hip-hop and pop, their album explores themes of race, sexuality and identity and sounds at once mainstream, lo-fi and political. As the group's Alloysious Massaquoi says: 'Young Fathers are breaking out of the ghetto'."

Updated Korg Volca 5-way Power Splitter from myVolts

via myVolts

"In case you didn’t know, myVolts makes a super-handy cable for powering up to 5 Korg Volcas from one mains plug or USB port. It saves wall sockets, batteries, time, money hassle – and we’re proud to say it has a lot of fans in the vibrant Volca community.

Version 1 of the cable’s been available for 9 months now, getting used all over the world, so we’ve gotten a lot of user feedback. We’ve taken on board all the comments and made a new-and-improved version, available from September 2016"

The new and improved version now has "right-angled tips on the end of the five tails this time, it makes the setup neater and keeps the cables out of the way and going in the right direction, away and out the back of the Volcas."
