Epic SynthRock Game of Thrones Theme cover

I stumbled across this and had to share. Fans of GoT will not want to miss this amazing cover by MotiveMakesaMan Music.

A full band came together on this one with live drums, acoustic guitar, and several amazing synthesizers. Very nice work by these guys!

Acid is making a comeback and it’s being lead by Korg Volcas and YouTubers

I keep seeing more and more posts of people making Acid beats like this one by Honeysmack.

I think all the new inexpensive hardware synths and sequencers are partly responsible for this revival, but it’s cool… whatever the reason is.

There’s definitely a plethora of cool toys out there right now and a lot of people using them in cool ways.

I love acid

Akai MPD24 Finger Drumming – Trap, Vaporwave, Trip Hop

akai mpd24 finger drumming

I Finally upgraded from the nanoPAD to an Akai MPD24. I really love this thing.

Geeky Gigs #9 is a bit of a hodgepodge mix up of styles, kinda trap, kinda vaporwave, kinda trip hop, and just kinda weird. I cut up son Janet Jackson, 808, casio rapman, my own real drum samples, some vinyl drum samples and some synth parts and bass lines using the UVI digital sensations and Plastique VST. Everything is live sequenced and triggered in Ableton Live Intro.
The end is a bit of improv. Hope you like it!

Amazing ARP 2600 clone and a very cool song by Firechild

ARP 2600

I had to share this impressive vid. Not only is this an amazing clone of the classic ARP 2600, the song and video made by Firechild are really awesome. I’ll definitely be checking out more of his music!

If you haven’t seen my Geeky Gigs web show, please check it out. Above is a playlist of all my geeky gigs so far. These are all solo performance videos of me playing several different pieces of equipment and software.

I spend some time playing drums to the Korg M01D on Nintendo 3DS, explore Vocaloid in a song with live drums and Megpoid GUMI, and show you some ways to use the Korg Nano series midi controllers live!

Next, I’ll be exploring possibilites of the Akai MPD 24 midi pad controller in the latest Episode of Geeky Gigs scheduled for this Sunday! I try to keep them entertaining and fun to watch, and new episodes come out just about every other Sunday.
