Korg nanoPAD2 Finger Drumming to Synthwave, Retrowave, Dreamwave!

80s VHS girls

Subscribe to my youtube channel and check out this performance with Ableton Live Intro with a nanoKONTROL and nanoPAD2 control surfaces.

I made a couple of melodic loops but am playing all the drum beats live on the nanoPAD2. I used mostly Simmons SDS7 and SDS5 drum samples and a couple others.

The bass tones are from the Jup-6 free VST plugin, which you can download here http://demonicsweaters.com/2015/02/add-this-to-your-vst-collection-free-roland-jupiter-4-inspired-vst-plugin-for-windows/

The lead and string sounds are the DSX from the UVI workstation soft-synth which you can get for free if you purchase a nanoPAD2.

Thanks for watching!

The amazing 4D Sound System is a Nicola Tesla inspired fully immersive audio experience

This completely amazing place in Amsterdam is taking live audio into a whole new territory. What is it? well imagine electronic music performers being able to send any sound to any position of the room at any time they want. Imagine being able to make sounds fall from the ceiling or bounce off the walls at their command. Imagine sounds crawling around on the floor by your feet then zooming up to your head and spinning around in circles!

4D sound system

This is basically what can happen in the 4D sound system. This specially designed room features 16 columns of omni-directional sound drivers and 9 subs under the floor. There’s specially designed software that allows the performer to interact with the room in real-time and creates a unique space that is part club and part sound art installation. This is truly advanced thinking in terms of digital audio performance.

I need to go to this place!

Check out these videos for more details on this technology. Too bad there’s no way to really hear it on our computers. Looks like we’ll all need to go there.

Great and funny how-to video on chopping loops in Ableton Live

Some people find this talented tuber’s videos obnoxious, but not me. I think he’s great. Teaches well, knows his shit and you can really learn something. Check it out! The funniest thing about this vid to me, is I really do have an Uncle Joe.
