In the late 1970s in China, one inventor created a futuristic take on traditional instruments – and it easily still inspires today. I don’t know much about this instrument, but given CDM’s readership, I expect our collective knowledge should say something (not to mention...

Carl Mikael's Cabinet of Curiosities is one of my favorite YouTube channels; his videos often get me thinking, and this one from last week was no exception. One thing I have always found intensely irritating in my time in this business is religious zealots, who use their...

There’s a big push among software makers to deliver integrated solutions – and that’s great. But if you’re a big user of both, say, MASCHINE MK3 and Ableton Live, here’s some good news. NI made available two software updates yesterday, for their Maschine groove workstation so...

A month or so ago, I got turned on to the concept of Dante, which is an audio-over-Ethernet protocol used primarily by big production houses and live sound reinforcement. (I imagine it was invented by someone that had to run a 48-channel snake from the stage to the...
