Qadnic (Studio Electronics) & Roland Demora

Alba Ecstasy posted this gorgeous use of the Roland Demora inside of his modular synth. It starts off as a groan, but skip ahead to about 50 seconds for some fun synthesis that sounds great.

Video Description:

Preparing with Braids & Clouds a warm, deep background for what is coming. Next, you'll see choosing a wavetable for Osc 1. And then, for Osc 2, 3 and 4. After that I'll pass through a few setings of Quadnic and meanwhile I'll play with the factory delay of Roland Demora.

Hoping will be usefull,

Kickstarter: MOON Switcher

Norwegian pedal manufacturer Aalberg Audio has launched a Kickstarter campaign for MOON Switcher, a wireless Bluetooth device for controlling every part of your guitar chain; including the amplifier!

The scope of control options on this is pretty impressive. Whatever you hook it up to you can then control from a small wireless controller that fits on your guitar. There's also an iOS app that can act as a remote, as well as managing the whole setup.

The MOON Switcher is expected to ship in April 2017, and in the first few hours of the campaign has already grabbed 16% of their $31,147 goal. There are a whole bunch of different backing levels, but you can get the basic setup for $100 as part of an early bird special. Here's a promo video for the campaign.
