DYMS - Novation Circuit & Korg Gadget Jam

YouTuber DYMS did a fun jam on his Novation Circuit with Gadget! He includes a disclaimer that he doesn't have a lot of experience with Electronica, but I like his whimsical take on the genre.

Video Description:

I got the Novation about 3 months ago and finally tried recording something. Not so much a performance as just a recording of what I am working on and a proof of concept for a completely portable set-up. As you can tell form the video, lots of indecision!

Portable Set-Up
Audio:
- Circuit output goes to Yamaha AG06 in on ch. 3/4
- iPad Mini headphone out goes to AG06 in on ch. 5/6
- AG06 USB out goes to old iPad via camera connection kit.
- Stereo out recorded to Ferrite on old iPad

USB & Sync:
- USB out from Circuit goes directly to iPad Mini via camera connection kit
- Sync via midi from Circuit to Korg Gadget

Power:
- 15,000 mAh solar battery charger powers the AG06 mixer
- iPads are battery powered
- Novation Circuit battery powered

* Disclaimer. I come from an old indie rock background and have never created much electronic style music. As I have gotten older I have not had much luck forming a new band, so thought I would try something new. I understand that my understanding of electronic style music is limited and my skills are lacking. Advice welcome. Abuse not :)

TF8 Synth by Pier Lim

Developer Pier Lim has released TF8 Synth for iPhone. Unlike his previous FM Synthesis app TF7, TF8 is using subtractive, or Virtual Analog, synthesis. TF8 arrives with Audiobus, Ableton Link, and both MIDI In and MIDI Out! The app is free to try, and until the end of March it is only $3 to unlock.
