Alternativey, just subscribing and/or sharing knowlege of my channel and music also helps. Either way, thank you for your support.

I don't give shopping advice - it's impossible to know what instrument/gear is right for someone else, and I wouldn't want to be responsible for any regretful purchases - I don't pretend to be an expert on anything. Thanks for your understanding.

Teenage Engineering OP-Z: The First Seven Days

MATRIXSYNTH spotted this video from Red Means Recording. He's chronicled his exploration and growth with the Teenage Engineering OP-Z in his first week. There are a lot of helpful captions throughout to explain what's going on and where he's at in the process.

Video Description:

Hi I got one of the Teenage Engineering OP-Z digital synthesizer things. It's like if you took the Pocket Operators and married them with an Elektron device and it's pretty fun. This is my first 7 days getting to know the device. You look great today, btw.

MODX + Cubasis as MIDI sequencer (Detailed Tutorial)

YouTuber thebrackett shows us how he likes to compose MIDI in Cubasis to control his Yamaha MODX. This is not just a tutorial of, "Now plug in the camera connection kit." This is more philosophical. He explains why he likes using a MIDI sequencer with his keyboard, and the advantages of using Cubasis as that sequencer.

Note that only the intro is shot on a camcorder. The rest of the video is in regular 1080p.

Video Description:

If you are like me and enjoy composing in MIDI sometimes, you may be interested to know that it's pretty darn easy to use an iOS device as your midi sequencing brain with the MODX.

I've only had Cubasis for a week, and I've only had the MODX for 3 weeks, so there might be a more elegant way to do it that I'm not aware of, but here's one workflow to consider.

Recspin: Portablist Fretless Raiden Fader with Numark PT-01

Recspin previewed a prototype Fretless Fader back in October. The idea is to combine the functionality of the crossfader, with a vertical axis of further control. This is based on a product announced 3 years ago that has yet to make it to market. While the original creator drags his feet, Recspin is ready to share his creation now, with a free download of the MIDI Designer Pro 2 layout and instructions on the off-the-shelf parts you'll need.

If and when a fretless is released by John Beez be sure to support him!


Made this with a couple rails from Amazon plus some magnets and a steel plate from Home Depot. A piece of one of the rails has to glide across the screen triggering the pads in the app on the iPhone.

The app Iโ€™m using is โ€œMIDI Designer Pro 2โ€. Here's a link to my custom layout:

You have to output midi to your laptop using a "lightning to usb3 camera adapter" and a compatible MIDI device (I use an M-Audio MIDI Sport Uno". You need a custom made mp3 or wav file that has all the notes you want to hit. I make each note about 30 seconds long and I set the cue points about 10 seconds into each note. Then you have to MIDI learn the pads on the iPhone/Midi Designer to the cue points in Serato.

Below is a link to the mp3 I used for this routine:

Let me know if you have any questions or if I missed anything.
