Reverbs can mimic real spaces (precisely or loosely), or sound like springs, or sound like thickened delays. Luminance goes somewhere else: unreal, shimmering spaces full of glimmering reflections. And it’s already taking off. Shimmer-y reverbs are perhaps a zeitgeist now,...

Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America? continues its epic troll of US society. And since Spinal Tap predates laptop production, we instead get a Hudson Mohawke tribute to sampling. If you caught @SachaBaronCohen edm trolling episode last night I made the track lol...

Noncompliant (aka Lisa, formerly DJ Shiva) is on Reddit today, as midwest techno finally gets its own AMA (“ask me anything”). No hype, no nonsense – just real talk about honest questions producers and DJs face. On funk: If it moves my booty (of which I have a lot) then...

Algorithmic selection, soulless streaming music, DJ players that tell you what to play next and then do it for you… let’s give you an alternative, and much more fun and futuristic future. Let’s watch The Black Madonna DJ from inside a video game. This is some reality-bending...

Universal Audio have dropped another of their semi-annual releases of high-end digital sound toys. And this one is revealing of how studio production is becoming more accessible. Plus, you get to steal Bill Putnam’s mic collection. Well, virtually. A handful of players in thi...

This week in blasphemy: LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER has another weird nerdy superhit, this time modding and glitching out an electronic bible. Jesus, take the soldering iron! LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER is inventor-musician-composer Sam Battl of London, whose projects have included synths ...

From hyper-nerdy label Detroit Underground comes a new tool that both visualizes signals and acts as a modular visual instrument – a new way of looking at what you’re doing in modular sound, and an object for visual creation. Eurorack may be saturated with modules that do...

So you want to start recording, mixing, arranging, and your budget is … you don’t have one. Tracktion runs on every OS, and the latest update adds still more powerful features. Free production tools are invaluable – not only are they a refuge for the cash-strapped, but they...

We’ve seen lots of new controllers that are designed to be more responsive to gestures. But can they actually make new sounds, to match? ROLI and FXpansion have a new soft synth that’s designed for that. It’s called Cypher2, and it builds on the past (award-winning, no less)...

It’s a little thing, but it adds a lot when you’re playing live: STEP LOOP lets you repeat steps in a sequence as they play, without losing time. Here’s how it works, along with other updates to Roland’s TR-8S drum machine. Roland’s version 1.10 firmware is out today, and the...

Okay, for anyone who thought the TR-808 shoes were too much, you may want to sit down. Now there’s a craft beer immortalizing the Roland drum machine for #808day. It’s called the BR-808, and it’s quite silly – but you do get a celebrity endorsement from the likes of...

Roland now routinely enjoy the fact that August 8 is “808” day. But we aren’t seeing new product announcements today as in some past years. What you get instead is a bunch of updates for existing gear. Here they are in one place so you can see what’s relevant to you. All...

No moment cements the TR-808 as a sex symbol quite like its role in “Sexual Healing.” And we may have a producer who found the actual drum machine used in the song. As “Sexual Healing” opens, it’s just a slow, dry groove on this futuristic Japanese electronic box with a...

Adding to your toolkit of audio units is probably going to become compulsive at some point for you, but for now I find that there’s still plenty of room in mine for new apps that serve a useful purpose. That’s what I’m hoping for with Woodpressor. The app is described as a...

Apps from the FAC stable are fast becoming some of my most used AUv3 apps at the moment. Fred’s Maxima, and Transient seem to get used almost all the time, but his Envolver app is one that had, so far, not really hit my radar. That is, until now, with version 2, and the...

We’ve already seen a couple of apps this week that are powered by the AudioKit framework, and here’s another. Bliptronic is a fairly simple looking synth app with an intuitive interface. It’s a universal app, and as far as I can tell it’s sort of roughly based on the...

It’s definitely an underground subculture of audiovisual media, but lovers of graphics made with vintage displays, analog oscilloscopes, and lasers are getting their own fall festival to share performances and techniques. Vector Hack claims to be “the first ever...

TonalEnergy could easily be overlooked as just a tuner and metronome app. That would be a real oversight. TonalEnergy can do much much more. In fact, it’s an all-in-one app, with a truly state-of-the-art tuner, an advanced metronome, dedicated orchestral strings and guitar...

I have to admit to having missed this when it first came around, and I’ve only just picked up on it as of version 1.3. However, I’m making up for my mistake by talking about it now. Let’s start by explaining a bit about what Cycle is. Probably the easiest way is to give you...

The monome made history by transforming the virtual world of the computer into a low-fidelity grid of lights and buttons. But it’s no less magical today – especially in the hands of stretta. Watch: Matthew Davidson has been an innovative developer of patches for the monome s...
