Let's Play with FRMS

One common mistake that new YouTubers make is in apologizing for a performance at the start of the video. They'll say things like, "oh this is my first time doing this..." or have a description that is deprecating of their results. Sometimes this is just false modesty, but an apology will color how the performance is received.

Nothing is wrong with this video. In fact, everything is wonderful! How are you doing? Did you sleep well?

Video Description:

Imaginando brings us an impressive combination of granular and traditional synthesis in a powerhouse combination. This video is a bit unlike others in this series. Due to the complexity of FRMS, I didn't try going into this with a clear plan. I just wanted to document the sound design process. Which honestly turned into a train wreck that lasted over an hour. I've done some aggressive editing on this to bring it down to less than 30 minutes.

I think it still retains all of the essential information. I hope it reveals that the process of creating a patch doesn't always go smoothly, but if you take your time and explore you will be rewarded! I love the final result!

App Sales: Bring Out Your Freebies

Arturia remembered that they made an Arturia iSpark app today, and made it free to everyone! It seems like they had forgotten about it entirely since 2017. Alto Sax Prompter is a study aid for learning to play the Alto Sax, which has seen regular updates over the years, and is now free today! They're joined by some decent sales on Keystage, the FAC effects (mostly the macOS versions), and Fader Command!

Since iSpark hasn't changed at all in the intervening years, here's a 36 year old Jakob Haq showing off the app. This is from when he had joined forces with The Sound Test Room, and before his first grey hairs.

FHTH - Untouchable

YouTuber FHTH takes advantage of the pandemic to go play in traffic. If you do this at night in the rain it increases the difficulty of playing in traffic, but gives you cool synthwave vibes. #YOLO

AudioLayer Update

AudioLayer, from VirSyn, was updated with automatic multi-sampling! This works with external MIDI, or with other apps via IAA/AU, and is really impressive to watch in the demo. It automatically sends the MIDI notes with varying velocities to capture the instrument you want to sample!

What's new in AudioLayer v1.2.0:

- Automatic multi-sampling of external instruments (MIDI / IAA / AU) using the AudioLayer Music Effect AU

Tiny Desk (Home) Concert: Tarriona "Tank" Ball

NPR Music has been doing the Tiny Desk Concerts for years now, but just like everyone else they're working from home now. Fortunately Grammy nominated suitcase owner Tank from Tank and the Bangas, downloaded Korg's free iKaossilator last night. Tank's bravery, and luggage, in this performance cannot be overstated.

Video Description:

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

"I'm very proud to do this, I'm very scared to do this, but I'm obviously practicing social distancing cause my group is not here." And so Tarriona "Tank" Ball of Tank and the Bangas is on the floor of her living room in New Orleans, showing us just how much fun you can have being alone. Surrounded by percussive instruments that include a suitcase, a jar of cocoa butter, a cassette box, a pen and a version of Korg's music software called iKaossilator, Tank practices her social distancing singing, "It's OK to be alone by yourself, eat by yourself, chill by yourself, read by yourself."

Just over three years ago, this band from New Orleans won our Tiny Desk Contest. Since then, they've traveled the world, put out a major label album, and like all of us, are now taking care and being careful, with Tank spreading love from her living room.
