Cory Bengtsen - Korg Live Jam

YouTuber Cory Bengtsen produced some moody-grungy-synthy awesome in this live jam! He's got a bunch of Korg gear in here, along with Korg Gadget!

Video Description:

Volca Sample and Monologue synced, with Monologue playing a chord sequence and Volca Sample playing a drum sequence. Loose improvising on the melodic and harmonic parts with the Minilogue and the Korg Gadget iPad app with a midi contoller. All going into a mixer with a Kaoss Pad on the effects loop. Recorded live into Ableton Live with no overdubs. Slight EQ and compression added post-recording.

I also make music under the Gushing Cloud moniker.

This was a somewhat impulsive recording in the spirit of minimalism and live improvising with synths. An experiment in, albeit boring and unpleasant looking, video recording while audio recording.

systemcall - Hello Fugue Machine

YouTuber systemcall found out about Fugue Machine, so he routed his iPad into a 2 Moog Mother 32's and a Roland SE-02. The results are some nice ambient synth fun!

Video Description:

Today I discovered the iOS app, Fugue Machine, which is a multi-playhead sequencer. In this "patch" I have Fugue Machine sending MIDI to two Mother 32's and a Roland SE-02. The MIDI is being routed through an iRig MIDI 2 plugged into the iPad, and from there into a USB-MIDI interface to my Mac. Ableton Live is routing the three MIDI channels back out to each synth.

NAMM2018: Genki Instruments Wave

Synthtopia found a new MIDI ring controller at Genki Instruments' NAMM booth. The Wave MIDI controller does not have a release date. They plan to launch a Indiegogo campaign in March. The final retail price will be around $200, but early Indiegogo backers will be able to pick it up for around $100. This makes the price competitive with Source Audio's Hot Hand; which has been on the market since 2013.

Video Description:

At the 2018 NAMM Show, Genki Instruments introduced the Wave, a wireless wearable MIDI controller.

We talked with Haraldur Hugosson, who gave us an overview of how the Wave works.
