Stereopolitan - Moves Like Jagger (Violin iPad Cover)

German band Stereopolitan has a great combination of beautiful fräuleins singing and playing violin, with a nerd on an iPad. They have a very classic sound, mixed with modern modulations and effects from Ableton Live, being controlled by the touchAble app.

Video description:

This video demonstrates the use of a tablet computer for live modulation of an electric violin solo.

If you're digging their style, you should check out this performance at the Grimme Online Awards 2012, also with English lyrics.

DXi Updated with VirutalMIDI Input and Background Audio

Takashi Mizuhiki is on a roll with another nice update to DXi. The first thing I did was load it up into Genome and grin manically!

I'm excited to see development continues on this! And at such a rapid pace, just a couple of weeks after the last update. There have been several long months in which nothing happened, but this seems to show a renewed interested in the project. I sincerely hope that means we will see it supporting new music app technologies like Audiobus!

What's new:

  • Added background audio support.
  • Added virtual MIDI input port.
  • Fixed small bugs in MIDI handling.

Rheyne in (MF)3D

Rheyne has a moody jam going on here with his MIDI Fighter 3D, SoundPrism Pro, Animoog and a DSI Mopho.

Video Description:

A live looping improv jam using the "MF3D Launcher" created by Tomash Ghzegovsky for the DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D, basically turning the MF3D into an Ableton Live control surface with instantaneous response. Details are at DJTT's website: http://maps.djtechtools.com/mappings/664

SoundPrism Pro is wirelessly sending MIDI to an instance of NI's Massive. Animoog is sending and receiving MIDI through an iConnectMIDI. Lemur is wirelessly controlling filters and effects in Ableton Live. Also used is a DSI MoPho keyboard, and an Akai MPD26 controlling NI's Kontakt. All audio is passed through a PreSonus 1818VSL connected to a Macbook Pro running Ableton Live.

Special thanks to Tomash for creating a unique version of this template which turns the clip launch page into a 4x4 grid. I've re-colored the last bank of buttons to four vertical rows to match my own mapping for Ableton's loopers.

A Detailed Introduction to Tabletop

YouTuber Freth Productions has put together a nearly hour long tutorial series for Retronyms' Tabletop. He isn't fucking around when he says it is detailed; this tries to cover it all!

The video resolution is poor, but it is good enough to read labels and the email he got from Glenn Beck at 7:50 in the first video.
