SOPA Would Make Me A Felon

Rather than going dark today in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), I'd like to call attention to exactly how SOPA would impact me. Three of the lessons in the Everyone Can Play Music series play with the bass line pattern of New Order's Confusion (Pump Panel Remix), and SOPA would make these retroactively felonies. I don't like to get political, but you can bet I got off my ass to talk to my congressman on this one.

Here are the 3 ECPM lessons in question, which are all totally legal under today's Fair Use laws. Enjoy them while they last... If I have to pull these it will gut the basics from the series.

ECPM #3 ECPM #4 ECPM #5

Review: TC-11

TC-11 brings a lot of innovation to synthesis on the iPad with a mind-boggling assortment of controls. This review takes a look at just a fraction of the many possible ways to play with your patches. According to the developer the next major update will include recording and AudioCopy, so I look forward to that!
Essential

Recommendation:

This expressive take on synthesis greatly utilizes the touch interface in a very well thought out package.

Everyone Can Play Music #10: Envelopes in Sound Design

In this lesson I use Animoog to demonstrate Envelopes and how they can change the sounds we hear in synthesis. At the end I give a brief example of Legato and how that effects Envelopes. We will be returning to iMS-20 in the next lesson.
Essential

Recommendation:

An amazing synthesis experience designed for the iPad interface.
