Yay, it’s been a long time. No Posts for nearly two years, but i’ve been busy setting up my studio, finally learning to play the piano and what not. I’ve spent last nicht in the studio and made some music. Parts from the rough mixdown are on this video and I’ll upload the song once it is done, enjoy! By the way: Drums are SP-12, ADD-one & Clap Trap, Bassline is Emax and OTO in the break, Overtones are Emulator II and Juno 106. [wpvideo aGQJqFbH]
Alright, I am not there, but i’ve gotta to say that what is presented at this years Namm (the worlds biggest music fair, happening twice a year at Anaheim, California) is just awesome!! First and probably best thing for me is: Cubase 6 is out. I got Cubase 4 and wasn’t really sure if I wanted to update to version 5, so I didn’t and it was exactly the right choice. The update to Cubase 5 was 189 €, while the update to version 6 only is 149 €, hooray! You can look up the features of the new version in the links if you’re interested. But now to the BIG things:
Now this is how I like it. I can’t play any instrument really, but i once learned to play the guitar (and forgot about how to right away). OK I’m about to learn keyboard, but due to it’s low stage at the moment that won’t count yet! Anyways, this looks like a promising instrument. Check out the video below, to see how it looks and sounds. There actually is plenty more sound to get out of this, but for the first video it looks quite promising. Maybe there will be an Ipad add-on to imitate this some time. For me, it can’t wait to see people rocking that thing live on stage and i don’t mean i want to hear guitar sounds when it’s played… (Photo Courtesy of Misa Ltd.)
There have been a lot of rumors about it in the last years, but now it is official: Panasonic discontinues the legendary SL 1210. It is known to be the longest produced piece of consumer electronic and made it to the Guiness Book Of Records. As well the legendary deck has a stable place in nearly every nightclub around the world. To me there is little hope, that Panasonic will come up with a new model, so it looks like the times of DJing as we know it are over. Djs with just a laptop (and maybe a controller or two) will take over and if you have the record or not no longer resolves if you can play the song. Hello brave new world!
