Happy Nerding FX Aid - Strymon Big Sky Reverb Comparison

Published on Mar 13, 2020 ScottMFR

"Happy Nerding FX Aid is able to squeeze 32 effects into a slim 4HP. I was mostly curious to hear how the reverbs sound, especially the ones modelled after the Strymon Big Sky. In this video I give a quick overview of the module, then provide some examples of how it sounds.

Pi Day 2020

Published on Mar 14, 2020 CatSynth TV

"Today we celebrate Pi Day! (3-14, at least in the US)

We particularly enjoy the more esoteric aspects of π, such as its connection to the famous Basel Problem as described in this video. We also use the digits of π to create the music in the background and show how it was put together using Euterpea/Haskell, Pro Tools, and Arturia Pigments with a special 10-note tuning for the digits.

The "Digits" library used to extract the digits of π as a arbitrary-length list of integers in Haskell is available as an open source library

Euterpea, the library used to generate and manipulate musical elements in Haskell can be found at"

"In 2018 there was World Football Championship in Russia and several matches were held here in Ekaterinburg . One day one man asked my friend to come to me to see Polivoks and that man was from Costa Rica. I thought he was latinos but I was surprised to see european man more over he was Belgian. He was sound engineer invited to organize sound translation from our arena. Well I show him Polivoks, saw his rounded eyes then he simply took Polivoks in the hotel (it was Saturday) and on Monday he sent to me audio file with the track Putin The Ball that he recorded in the hotel. This Belgian is Jeff Claeys and he is engineer and producer at Elstudio in Costa Rica and of coarse composer and musician. In this track you hear Polivoks, effects, voice. I like this track. And now this Polivoks lives in this studio among Moogs, Prophets, Hammods and ohers."

Korg NTS-1: Exploring Lead Sounds

Published on Mar 14, 2020 Oscillator Sink

"Korg's NTS-1 is a fantastic little digital mono-synth with built in FX. It's teeny-tiny, but with a sound that belies its size. In this video we spend some time exploring lead sounds, getting a feel for the synth's character and how to get to those sounds. We'll also explore the FX section and, naturally, drench some of our sounds in big ambient delays and reverbs.

In this video we only look at the default oscillators and FX that come with the synth - we'll dive into some of the 3rd party user oscillators and FX in a future video."

(Currently Free) Korg iKaossilator SyncKontrol & Volca Modular Jam - Hunker Down

Published on Mar 14, 2020 ChrisLody

"So Korg have very kindly decided to make iKaossilator on iOs and Android free for a limited period in the wake of Coronavirus. Very nice of them I reckon. Here is their article on the matter:

So with that in mind I thought I'd try it out and have a quick jam as a thanks to Korg. Here is iKaossilator running on an iPad synced to the Volca Modular via SyncKontrol on my iPhone which is another Korg app which has always been free I believe. By enabling Ableton Link in both apps you can use SyncKontrol to send pulses at the correct tempo from a project on another device. Handy for Volca synchronisation.

On the Volca Modular I have use Function 2 as the main envelope which means the rhythm can be controlled a little using the Time knob which is really useful to get some variation into things."

KORG Makes iKaossilator App Free Until March 20

via @KorgUSA

"Schools, offices, & concerts Earth globe americaswide have been requested to close & with many people self-quarantining & working from House with garden, we wanted to help you occupy your time a little. Now until March 20th, get the iKaossilator App FREE for iOS & Android. Have some fun:"
