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.

Patch of the Week 50: volca nubass + volca sample

Korg posted this impressive demo of the new Volca nubass with the newer Nu:Tekt OD:S overdrive pedal kit.

Video Description:

The Korg volca nubass is the most performable acid bass synth out there – with a unique analog VTO (Vacuum Tube Oscillator) providing huge, fat analog sounds, plus the ability to randomize and evolve your transpose, slide, and accent settings, run this bass synth through an overdrive (in this case, Korg’s Nu:Tekt OD:S tube overdrive pedal kit) and add some volca sample drums for pure acid breakbeat bliss.

Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter (Guitar & GarageBand Cover)

YouTuber Mauro Pastormerlo did a remarkable cover of Pearl Jam's most vocally challenging track. Mauro is Italian, and his pronunciation of the English language is precisely on par with Eddie Vedder's on the original. I've always wanted to do a cover using the Misheard Lyrics.

Video Description (Googlish Translation):

I stay at home and play Pearl Jam, all guitars, bass, drums patterns and vocals (sigh. !!!) are the flour of my bag. Just hobbies!

GlitchCore by Alex Matheu

After months of teasing previews, Alex Matheu just released GlitchCore! This AUv3 effect lets you slice and juggle incoming audio in micro loops. There is a 16-step pattern sequencer that allows you to control how the juggling occurs, and which effects are applied to the slices.

While waiting for Apple to approve GlitchCore, Alex recreated GlitchBreaks as a Mozaic script for GlitchCore.


GlitchCore is an Audio Unit (AUv3) effect for re-sequencing live audio. It can rearrange audio that it processes. GlitchCore lets you glitch audio by making micro loops and scrubbing your sound. GlitchCore also lets you set loop points, variable loop lengths, and can reverse live audio.

GlitchCore can be used in your favorite host app like AUM, apeMatrix, GarageBand, Cubasis, and others.

GlitchCore works really well on drums, samples, or drum machines, but also works great on synths, pads and vocals.

Features :
AUv3 effect can launch multiple instances
16 step pattern sequencer
8 pattern slots
Randomize pattern steps
Trigger patterns automatically
Mutate patterns automatically
Buffer freeze
Syncs to host
All parameters are exposed as AU Parameters for automation
Pattern move in cardinal directions
Adjustable micro fades for each mode create envelopes to adapt to different types of audio

A bunch of videos for this came out today! _ iOSTRAKON takes things to the extreme, while Red Sky Lullaby brings an informative and much gentler performance. The Sound Test Room did the demo embedded here.
