Let's Play with Audulus 3

Doing videos for modular apps is tricky. There are just so many damn parts to it, it's hard to know where to start. For this Audulus 3 video I try to keep things simple by focusing on a specific task. Since this is February Album Writing Month (FAWM) I'm making a patch that will write a whole album on its own!

Okay... that might not seem simple, but honestly the building blocks to do it are!

Note to Patrons: Do you want to see more of this? I have some ideas for how to further develop this patch, but if you'd rather see me do something else let me know either way in the comments on the Patreon page.

Video Description:

Audulus 3 is a monstrous modular synth, but it can also be a lot of fun! In this video I attempt to show you how to make a complex patch using simple building blocks. If you enjoyed this please consider supporting this series by sponsoring them on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/discchord

PSA: Don't Do What The Internet Tells You

4chan, the makers of every meme image macro you've ever shared on Facebook, discovered a unique flaw in iOS. By setting the date on an iOS device to 01/01/1970 and rebooting, the device will fail to boot. Naturally 4chan then made an image instructing people to do exactly this with the promise that it will engage some "Retro Mode" Easter Egg.

Seriously. Do not do this. If you see someone posting this image, tell them to go fuck themselves. This will brick any iOS device with a 64-bit CPU. Allegedly attempts to "restore" the device will also fail. According to Sacramento CBS13 the only fix is to take it to an Apple Store where they have to disconnect the battery to reset the internal clock.

Zach Straley demonstrates the bug in this video by deliberately bricking an iPhone 5s.

Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine? (Supermoon Looping Cover)

Supermoon posted this looping cover jam of Arctic Monkeys' recent hit, R U Mine? Lots of guitar stuff here, but also Lemur!

Video Description:

Supermoon doing a cover of Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine? on the Boss RC - 300 Loop Station.

We had the best time making this video inspired by one of our favorite bands. This video was edited in Blender and Wondershare Filmora. Our setup for the video and for live performances consists of the following: Boss RC - 300 Loop Station, Novation Impulse 25, Orange Crush 10, Samson Q7 Microphone, Roland DR-30, M-Audio M-Track Plus, Behringer Xenyx 1002, ASUS X550L, Wharfedale Pro SPX613, Wharfedale Pro Titan 12", Roland Cube 40XL, Epiphone Gibson Les Paul Special Model, Fender Precision Bass, Boss FS-6 Dual Foot Switch, iPad Mini, Liine Lemur

.

What you see in this video is essentially the way we perform this song (and others) in a live setting.

Supermoon is a two piece band(technically the smallest band possible) based in Pietermaritzburg, KZN, South Africa. With Brendon Holder(full set of hair) on lead vocals, bass, iPad and pedal pushing, and Dylan Smith (bald) on guitar, backing vocalistics and pedal pushing of his own with a good bit of finger drumming.

We use a blend of old school style instruments blended with new school technology to create a full band sound. We do a range of covers and original music. Go have a listen to some of that music here https://soundcloud.com/supermoon-music
