Midi Designer Pro: Setup for Elektron's Analog RYTM

Reader The Drümünkey developed a new way to sequence Elektron's excellent Analog RYTM drum machine, using MIDI Designer Pro. If you don't have a RYTM and just want to hear what that sounds like, skip ahead to about 57 minutes. Yes, a whole hour, this is quite long... so get comfy!

Video Description:

First, this video is pretty long. If you have a short attention span or are easily distracted, maybe just fast forward to https://youtu.be/QxYYrBQKVkg?t=3411

Second, it’s mostly aimed at owners of the Elektron Analog Rytm that may be interested in an idea or two on how to sequence it differently, as well as how to expand on its modulation capabilities (automating PERF as well as using external LFO’s) using an iPad and leveraging the amazing Midi Designer Pro

Third, even if you don’t have an AR, if you program drums or percussion, I think my ideas on sequencing each voice on it’s own track, thus breaking the paradigm of pattern=all voices is something worth thinking about.

Lastly, the sounds and patterns/sequences are REALLY basic. Sound are the init patch, and the sequences are just ones I threw together for this demo. So don’t expect much musically. That said, I think it is somewhat illustrative of my primary point that LFO driven pattern selection as well as LFO driven modulation via automation of the AR’s PERF can yield some interesting stuff… If you listen to the pathetic little “jam” at the end, even from such humble beginnings you can kind of (if you really, really really try) hear the embryonic beginnings of some interesting grooves. Maybe.

Regardless, enjoy the monkey… Or Orangutan… Whatever… :)

Also prob. worth mentioning... Except for me activating a few high hat and kick sequences, the entire end is basically playing itself based on the minor little setup I did in the tutorial. Ahhh modulation madness...

iPad Pro Hardware Sequencing and Mixing

YouTuber Todd Smith did a demo jam and explanation of his current mix of hardware and iOS apps. The demo jam ends at 2:00, where he begins to go over the hardware.

Video Description:

In this video I'll give a full breakdown of my current setup with the Apple iPad Pro and my hardware synthesizers. The JU-06 supplies the bass line and the Microkorg is played live. The Apple iPad Pro supplies all mixing, sequencing, Piano and live synths played from the M-Audio Code 49.

I'll be doing more detailed videos/tutorials on the software side of the Apple iPad Pro in upcoming videos. Plan on seeing MANY jams using this setup in the next few months. I'm building a live set/new album.

CTRLCap - Squeeze your fx

App developer Herrmutt Lobby has entered the world of hardware with CTRLCap, a €120 fader cap that sends MIDI messages as you squeeze! That seems pricey, but it looks awesome in the promo video. CTRLCaps are shipping now, but are made-to-order so there is a 3 week lead time.

Video Description:

Ever tried to add FX while scratching without breaking your flow? As both hands are already busy to control the fader and the record, it's pretty much mission impossible...
Unless you own a CTRLCap.

With its cutting edge technology, CtrlCap adds expressive controls at your fingertips!

Pinch it lightly or squeeze it firmly to send expressive midi controls to your FX, stage lights...you name it.

Replace your dead plastic fader Cap with a CTRLCap and get to the next level.

zMors Modular Ported to teensy3.6

Developer Sven Braun has ported his zMors Modular synthesis code to teensy! It is impressive to see it in action, but I think I'll stick to the iPad screen instead of trying to do everything from one knob.

Video Description:

using an teensy 3.6 (arduino) mcu.
Audio eninge is sample acurate, no buffering and using 32 bit float (FPU) in realtime. simple gui made with an OLED display + rotary encoder that allows wiring and parameter setting.

and...its open source ;-)

Pocket Jam: Bastl Kastle & PO-12

YouTuber Kalkartronic is rocking out on a mini-modular Bastl Kastle synced to PO-12. This starts off pretty weird, but it gets quite good around 1 minute in.

Video Description:

Kastle by Bastl Instruments synced with PO-12 by Teenage Engineering: Kalkartronic Mini Jam.
First hands-on the Kastle which the postman delivered yesterday. Fun and hell of a noize! Great little beast. Small but angry. ;-)
