Some new stuff.
|Jay Z Remix - Dirt Off Your Shoulder||
I'm working on a new site called PatchDump.
The concept is simple. Upload your patches and share with friends and strangers.
It is possible to find patches on the net, but you have to go around to random newsgroups and user groups. So I thought, "Why not create a site where you could find patches for all your software and hardware?"
You can upload a patch file of any type as well as an MP3 file showing the patch off. Then you tag it with relevant tags.
I have a track on a netlabel release. Download it for free...
We're in the process of buying a house and it seems like I haven't been doing much music related exploration lately, hence the posting has been a bit sparse. I'll have a music room that will be roughly twice as large. More ceiling room and concrete floors which will liven the drums up a bit. My current room can be a bit dead - but it's been a good thing, since I'm no acoustics expert.
|The Aalto Synthesizer and PatchDump.com||
The past few weeks, in my spare time, I've been playing with a software synthesizer called the Aalto, from Madrona Labs. It's modeled after a Buchla synthesizer, which is probably out of the price range for most of us. The Aalto is $100 USD, which is reasonable for the rich and textured sound this software creates. It's modeled after a modular synth, but it's not fully modular - it's hardwired at certain points, but you still have the patching and tweaking of a modular. This is my first real exploration of modular synths aside from the MS2000 on my iPad, which I probably spent 30 minutes on. I've spent well over 10 hours playing with the Aalto in Logic - creating patches from scratches and connecting with the community.
