#jamuary2020 Day 10 - Elektron Digitakt

Published on Jan 10, 2020 Oscillator Sink

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"Oh wow this one was fun to make.

It has been a good few months since I last sat down with the Digitakt and, like its FM cousin, it remains just so inspiring and fun. This one was a real head-bobber while I was recording.

The project I was working in was the same one as my Digitakt set from last year, so the samples used are the same, but the result was quite different from anything in that set.

Anyway, I had a big dumb smile on my face the whole time I was working on this one, so I hope that comes across in the finished product."

"Even though I was tired from work, still managed to put this together for the sake of Jamuary. This one is made using the PO-28 and the Korg Mono/Poly app for the iPad. Jam number 10! Into double digits!"

#Jamuary2020 Day 10: Aphelian feat. Volcas (Deep Ambient)

Published on Jan 10, 2020 VolcaNiced

"Aphelian is a brilliant app to improvice Jams.

In this case I connected the Ipad to my Volcas Bass and Volca Keys using the brandnew RK006 with MIDI.

Aphelian (

An innovative composition tool that lets the user see and manipulate musical forms, exploring the relation between geometry and music


How do you call a super portable MIDI interface which also is a standalone USB host, can drive gate signals, has per-port MIDI Filtering /Clock Processing and is about the size of an Altoids tin?? We don’t know… we call it the RK-006!

The RK-006 is about 7x5x1cm in size (3x2x0.4″) and packs 10 MIDI outputs plus 2 MIDI Inputs. This alone offers formidable portable possibilities but of course we did not stop there:

In short?

10x Out, 2x In merging MIDI Hub.
Super Tight MIDI Merge and THRU
Per port MIDI filtering and multiclock processing
USB host: HUB support, SMF playback
USB device: Individually addressable OUT & IN ports
Gate & Clock triggering: including SYNC24/DINSync style
The most portable & smart solution for both DAW and DAWless!

The RK-006 is our most complete product yet and with this, we have also taken the extra effort to design and produce an Injection moulded enclosure. Final enclosure will be of dark, semi transparent material and is expected to be ready end of January. Should you be in a hurry using the RK-006 we have a limited set with a white SLS-Printed 3D enclosure."
