YouTuber AA Battery had an excellent jam on his mobile music setup!
I want to do at least a few mini Jams this month. This time with my newly acquired Volca mix. I have to say, I like it! The effects and features help shaping the sound quite a bit. Drums are Patchblocks minijam studio. Plings and Plongs from Electroplankton on Nintendo DS, Delay Effect from Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 and of course Korg Volca Keys for those nice analog synth CHORD5!
I was fortunate enough to have a PC that could run the original Unreal game back in 1998. It was amazing to see the vibrant and expansive world rendered on my 3DFX Voodoo 2 card, when all of the other games of that time were brown and dingy. The soundtrack was also unique. Similar games were rocking out with Industrial and Metal soundtracks, while Unreal maintained the beautiful aesthetic.
It's a shame that the actual gameplay of Unreal was boring as shit.
YouTuber Ilya Orange beautifully reimagines the theme song in this performance!

Last year robotic toy manufacturer Sphero purchased Specdrums, a startup whose Indiegogo campaign was featured here in 2017. This was a ring designed for playing music by taping on various colors. At CES this year Sphero has relaunched the Specdrums, with a new app arriving on the 15th. Unlike a lot of products shown at CES this week, you can purchase the new Specdrums today for $65 and they will ship out on the 15th.
Tap colors. Make Music. #Specdrums are musical rings that make the world your instrument by turning colors into sounds. Connect to the Specdrums app and tap on anything – your clothes, drawings, or the included playing pad – to create and mix any sounds, beats, and loops that all play through your mobile device. Jam on your own or with friends, anytime and anywhere.
