New KORG iWavestation Coming to iOS

An improved UI over the hardware synths will be more than welcome. I recently replaced the battery on my Wavestation EX and as good as it sounds, it is a bit of a bear to program. Of course the sound is ultimately what counts. It will be interesting to compare the two when this comes out.

Novation Circuit - Ultra EDM

Published on Nov 20, 2016

"In this Circuit video I only used samples & midi from:
'A Class Samples - ULTRA INSPIRED MUSIC' For drums I recommend "EDM One Shots"

This is a very simple jam, not much variation except for some synth patch changes here and there. Anyone can make something like this with the Circuit.

With more preperation you could easily turn this to a entire song including break downs, bridges and buildups. I'm really would like more sample / synth channels though but it's possible if you are resourcefull. :-o
I only used preset synth patches in this video in my next video I will try to create some of my own with the Isotonik software."

STG: At Home at the Piano Bar Vol 1

Published on Nov 20, 2016 suitandtieguy

"Just finished a custom 16MU synthesiser for someone and decided to make a video with it before I ship it off to the patient and decent guy who bought it. It was also a good way to use some new toys I've got recently. This isn't a song per se, I'm just keeping myself from getting bored for 3 minutes. Maybe you'll enjoy it.

Modular is totally dry and controlled from a sequence I programmed on the Arturia Keystep. The modular patch is pretty basic, a Synthetic Sound Labs VCO in unison with a 3 octave square spread made by a Mankato Filter as sine VCO feeding the Pulse Matrix. All four sources feed a Mixer then the Sea Devils Filter. VCA is the Digital Attenuators. Envelopes are

The piano is a Yamaha CP70 preamped by a 1990s BSS mic pre/eq, fed into a Hammond USA Leslie "cream" pedal then a Yamaha REV500. Drums are a factory preset on a BeatBuddy pedal processed with an Electrix FilterFactory. If you've got a BeatBuddy, I can't recommend a FilterFactory more for processing. They sound fantastic together.

I've got a nice way to record video with direct audio now so this will happen more often."
