LayR describes itself as ‘massively polyphonic’, and according to the developer it is capable of delivering up to 256 voices of rich, multi-layered and textured sounds. That’s impressive, but what’s even more impressive is its latest update 1.2, which delivers a huge punch of...

The death of 28-year-old star producer/DJ Avicii comes as a shock to many. It’s also easy to reduce to another example of party world excess, or to say it’s just about big-money EDM and pop. But it should be a bigger wake up call than that. To me, the most alarming reaction...

Volt is a pretty amazing app. We haven’t had many MPE enabled apps, but what we have had is pretty good. Even though Volt is pretty new it’s already gathering a great deal of respect. In version 1.1 the developer, Kai Aras has added the usual array of fixes, updates and...

The music world is overloaded with people who talk about music – how it works, what has happened, what is happening. Few people can really delve articulately into questions of why. Susan Rogers is one of those few. Her talk at Ableton Loop this fall was, in all three years...

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...

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...

The growing power of gaming architectures for visuals has a side benefit: it can produce elaborate visuals without touching the CPU, which is busy on musicians’ machines dealing with sound. But how do you go about exploring some of that power? The code language spoken...

Vulse is an interesting idea for an app, in fact a concept that I don’t think has been done elsewhere, and so far it’s getting some pretty good updates with new features updates and more. In version 1.5 the app has received a massive update with a new effects, control modes...

Serendipitous collaboration can be magical. Combine an eccentric high-tech guitar company from Switzerland with some high-powered nerds from the USA, and you get some spectacular ways of adding sub octaves and picking apart and modulating sounds. From Memphis to Messe: on a...

Uli Behringer is apparently just getting started trolling the industry, promising US$49-99 Eurorack. But so far, that announcement involves renderings of Roland gear and a plea for user forums to tell them what to do. That’s right: even as people are buzzing about Behringer,...

With some 128 voices, the Valkyrie packs dense sound and effects that never let up. The all new UK-built synth was available to try in prototype form at Musikmesse – and it’s seriously impressive. When I say “play with your forearm,” I’m not kidding. I got my hands on the...

Back in December Akai / Retronyms brought us the iMPC Pro 2. This was a big step from the previous app (iMPC Pro). The 2 app is really well on the way to being a full DAW, as it can handle audio tracks, audio units and lots more. In this update they’ve brought us new...

Roland hasn’t made any announcement about new modular – but it seems a handful of SYSTEM-500 analog modules have just made an appearance in the wild, rounding out an existing range. We’ve got some “spy” shots. Yes, it seems unannounced Eurorack products from the Japanese...

iVCS3 is a truly amazing recreation of the 1969 classic from Peter Zinovieff’s EMS company. It is one of a great collection of unusual apps for more experimental uses and has had a steady stream of updates to make it more useful to those of us who would like to experiment...

As if you hadn’t had enough of the retro 808 drum machine craze, Puma are creating a pair of runners in collaboration with Roland. And this time, you can actually buy them. So, who needs some new kicks? I got a chance to take a look at the new Roland TR-808-inspired Puma...

IK were one of the first to bring FX to the iOS world with AmpliTube. Since the app first arrived on iOS it has blossomed into a full range of variants of the app that can bring you just about whatever kind of tone you could possibly want. And IK have continued to update the ...

Some of it, you’d expect: accordions, balalaikas. Some of it, you’d crave: post-Soviet electronic sounds. And some of it would surprise you: ready to play some pineapples? Meet the Russian makers at Musikmesse. There’s now growing bi-directional interest and involvement...

Sunvox is 10 years old. That’s an impressive thing to achieve for any product, and especially in the world of apps. When Sunvox started out of course there were no ‘apps’, and instead we had software and applications which magically morphed into ‘apps’ when the iOS app store...

Hey, if running a label to release music seems a daft idea these days, there’s always selling hardware. And Ninja Tune’s new hardware effect looks like it’s got some serious potential. Gear guru and underground weirdo music impresario Ingmar Koch and his Liquid Sky Berlin /...
