Robot Rock - A Live Hardware Cover of Daft Punk

Published on Jul 25, 2017 Matt Greer Music

"A live hardware cover of Daft Punk's song, Robot Rock.

Hello all,

So my quest to build a new live set progresses further. I had a few different goals when I contemplated the style for my next show. I knew I wanted to use the VT-3 for robot vocals, I knew I wanted to do a cover and I knew I wanted to remain upbeat and funky. This song seemed like a no brainer. Me, a performer by the name of Robots Against Children doing a song by two other robots called ROBOT ROCK?! Too perfect. hehe.

I tried to pay good respect to the original here but I also tried to make it my own. About half way through you'll see I gave it my own flavor.

Still dialing in the mix in places but that's alright, the point of this is to be live and fun, not studio perfect.

A small system devoted to capturing external sounds and sculpting them into new ones. The Phonogene operates as a recorder that also allows the artist to layer and rearrange the sound and manipulate the speed and direction of playback. The ECHOPHON brings pitch shifting, echo and when combined with the MMG filter, incredible smearing of the spectrum. The Wogglebug and MATHS work to animate these effects.

Minor Adjustment to the MATRIXSYNTH Header on Top of the Site

So, apparently the last "H" in MATRIXSYNTH was wrapping to a new line on Android devices. I adjusted the header to be slightly smaller so it hopefully no longer does. If you are on Android, and it still wraps, let me know. For everyone else, I just wanted to let you know you weren't losing your mind, and yes the header does looks ever so slightly different. BTW, you might have noticed the new book thumbnails above, to the right and at the bottom of the site and posts. Use them! I'm doing a little site optimization at the moment, so if you notice any changes, that's likely it. I won't be putting up a new post for every tweak I make as that would be too much noise and I'm guessing, as long as things work you are good. That said, if anything does break on your end let me know.

Telephone (Music Performance Video)

Published on Jul 25, 2017 Red Means Recording

"Get this on Bandcamp:

Live recording of 2x Access Virus Indigo 2 and Novation Bass Station II lines tracked over 6 instances of Operator in Ableton. Drums, vocals, and effects added afterward.

This was supposed to just be an ambient track, but it got away from me and kept getting bigger and more complex. The video was supposed to be simple, too, but also got away from me.
An alternate ambient version is available as part of the single.

Video made using Premiere and After Effects. Captures include Ableton and iZotope interfaces. Watching people play arpeggios is admittedly boring, sorry.

Virus: top and bass arpeggios
BSII: bass arpeggio + live lead"

analogue synthesizer demo 4

Published on Jul 25, 2017 Synthe_64

"This demo is another example of what can be produced using vintage and new analogue synthesizers and modulars trough connection of CV and triggers. The vintage synthesizers are the incredible Moog Minimoog Model D and Roland vocoder VP 330 plus, the Roland SH2 and Korg Polysix . You will also hear the RMF Elsita drumsynthesizer, the Arturia Microbrute and Korg Monotribe. A Pittsburgh modular with some additional modules from Doepfer and Trouby complete the sound.
Mixing and FX is done by two Behringer mixers, an Alesis Microverb 3 and a Small Stone phaser. The used mike for the vocoder is a Shure PG57.
I don't use midi. No prerecording used.
I invite you to also check my former 3 videos." [posted here]

DJ Galactic - Future Jazz (Drum and Bass) Jam Korg ESX2

Published on Jul 24, 2017 DJ Galactic

"DJ Galactic - Future Jazz (Drum and Bass) Jam Korg Electribe Sampler 2 from the DnB Prototype Project. Jamming, sampling, and Jazz what a beautiful combination, that motivates me to keep it up even in these time. Back to the hospital today, dropping this quick beat making session meanwhile, I made from one of my upcoming track Only Paradise from the Drum and Bass / Jungle Prototype that hopefully will rise to the sky in 2018. Simplicity is the key it s one of the beat that use the fewest channels on any of my tracks, and it s crazy what you can achieve with few elements ; I re-sampled my track Only Paradise chopped it and detune which create a totally different sound, with applying different filters + effects on it...
Future Jazz, is kind of Electronic Jazz Music adapted through the drum and bass style by DJ Galactic ; I was born from jazz music and feel it's a nice loop to come back to the jazz that gave me all what I know in music. Hope it sounds ok, anyway I had a good time, feel free to rate and share your feedback. Peace"
