Keystep Jam - Sequencer & ARP at the same time!

YouTuber ranzee is getting some great sounds out of his modest gear layout, with Arturia's KeyStep!

Video Description:

Using the Arturia KeyStep to play 2 synths at the same time. One with a sequencer and the other live AND playing the Arpeggiator (ARP) - all on the Keystep and all whilst keeping it in tight MIDI clock timing. No other trickery or computers used - see gear listing below. Watch to find out how.

Gear used:
► Behringer Model D
► Roland SH-01A
► Boss DD-500
► Strymon BigSky
► Arturia KeyStep
► Zoom H6 (recording)

Yes, this was a DAWless Jam!

REAMP by Klevgränd

Today Klevgränd released REAMP, a unique AUv3 saturation effect that uses spectral processing. This promises to be kind to your CPU, and includes 7 models based on real analog hardware.

REAMP iTunes Description:

This AUv3 plugin effect is a complex spectral saturation processor simulating a set of different analog gear in a new and unique way. Benefits of this algorithm is that it is highly CPU efficient and adds (almost) no latency.

The 7 models available are based on real analog gear individually measured in two dimensions; gain responses (-inf dB to +6 dB) at the frequency spectrum 20Hz to 20kHz. This data is used to transform input audio to output audio.


Cassette Deck

A consumer cassette deck produced in the mid 80’s. This profile adds some nice grit in the lower mids and rolls off the higher spectrum in a very pleasant way.

1/4” Tape Reel

A high quality tape reel machine was used for this profile. Set to one channel mode, there was plenty of dynamic bandwidth to capture on this one. Adds some subtle tape saturation that oozes mid 70’s.

Preamp Tube Clean / Preamp Tube Drive

These two profiles are captured from a high end tube microphone preamp with two different input gain levels (normal gain on the Clean version and a boosted level on the Drive version). Used on only one channel, this profile is very subtle, but the impact adds up when several channels are used simultaneously.

Guitar Tube Clean / Guitar Tube Drive

The guitar amp used is a well known pro amp used by several pro guitar players, and Just like the Preamp Tube profiles, these are recorded with two different input gain levels.

Tube Bass Amp

One of the developers friends dad had an old bass amplifier that we borrowed and profiled. Tip: Run a Fender Jazz bass through it and your neo soul licks will sound just like they’re supposed to.


Since there are several models available, this one can be used on almost any type of audio in any genre. The output can span from lo-fi to high-end hifi. One approach is to put it on several tracks with a more subtle setting which makes the essence of the gear simulated add upp. Another is to put it on the mix, or a bus.

Since we’re in the digital domain there can be some added aliasing when distorting the signal too much, resulting in an unpleasant high frequency boost. To prevent this, set the HARMONICS switch to SOME or FEW.

Feature list

• Seven handpicked profiles based on gear we love available.
• Spectral drive (four bands)
• Dry / Wet mix
• Plenty of factory presets
• Ultra low latency

Full documentation available inside the app or at

NOTE! REAMP is an AUv3 plugin that only works in an AUv3 compliant host like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Beatmaker 3, Auria etc.

There is a short official promo video from Klevgränd. Yesterday Doug Woods posted an urgent plea for financial assistance. He's also provided us with this timely demo for the new REAMP!

Twisted Electrons hapiNES Walkthrough

Manufacturer Twisted Electrons shows off their hapiNES chiptune synthesizer based on the sound chip from the Nintendo Entertainment System, named after the Egyptian god of the Nile inundation. Not to be confused with Khnum, whom the Egyptians regarded as the source of the Nile. We got a preview of this back in May with the µAcid8. Twisted Electrons are now accepting pre-orders for €100.
