This week on Outta Da Box, we're creating drums in Korg Gadget. Using the Dublin Synth we will make a kick, clap and hi hat. Finally using the Tokyo Drum machine we will create a snare drum. The technique used with the Dublin synth can be applied to pretty much any other analog or analog modeling synth. Thanks for watching.
As always, thanks for watching, feel free to comment, rate, share and subscribe.
Ms. Matilda from Longfellow Middle School in La Crosse, Wisconsin shows us how she tunes the instruments used by the school's orchestra. Tuning violins looks tricky! I'm including this here as a shoutout to insTuner because anyone that has to tune that many fucking instruments must be using the best app for the job.
Kira Q Tech, developer of KQ MiniSynth released KQ Dixie! This is a 6-operator FM synth based so closely on the Yamaha DX7 that it is almost entirely compatible with DX7 SysEx! When connected to a real DX7 you could use this to manage your preset library.
KQ Dixie arrives with AUv3 and Audiobus. The app is Universal and will run on devices down to iOS 9. Update: But as Bob noted in the comments here, it is limited to 64-bit devices.
KQ Dixie iTunes Description:
KQ Dixie is a 6-Operator FM synthesizer that is modeled on the synthesizer which appeared on the 1980s.
FM synthesizers make sounds with Frequency Modulation.
FM brings rich and brilliant sounds which are impossible to create with analog one.
It makes very complex waves with simple modulations.
The same method is used for a radio.
The synthesizer gained much popularity in the 1980s.
This app lets you make sounds freely with 156 voice parameters.
Almost all parameters are compatible with DX7.
Audio Unit v3 compatible.
32 algorithms included.
You can manage the hardware DX7 when it is connected with external MIDI cables.
Supports DX7 System Exclusive Messages (SysEx) and syx files.
Supports Zip files.
You may be able to find a lot of patches on the internet.
