Need to chill? This 24/7 Eurorack modular radio has you covered

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Thu 1 Aug 2019 5:36 pm

2019 – it’s a year when many of us are, let’s say, having some trouble chilling, relaxing, or … uh sleeping, to say nothing of meditating or studying. Fortunately, if you want a Eurorack modular solution, your ship has come in.

“Life can feel too fast sometimes,” say the creators. Yeah, no s***, especially with a world that is apparently actively on fire and run by people who seem to want to fan the flames rather than put it out. Wait, sorry, what was I talking about? Oh yeah. Chill. Slow down. Om.

Or rather, turn that Om into Ohm.

Dawless Jamming has an open call for meditative modular, extending on the channel’s patches and whatnot. Literally it came to the moderator in a dream, they say – “Rings into Clouds Forever.”

More details on the YouTube link above.

Breathe in, breathe out. Your patch cables are getting very heavy…

Let go of your fears and attachments. Do not worry about personal possessions… oh, wait, you let go of all of those already, you’re in modular…

Great stuff, though for me it still can’t top the soporific impact of this:

Loopmasters partners with Beatport, as production enters the age of makers

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Thu 1 Aug 2019 5:19 pm

The population growth of producers may make musicians nervous. But here’s one potential upside – there’s now a growing market for your sounds, not just your tracks. The latest deal between Loopmasters and Beatport points in this direction.

Follow along here, because this partnership is a little tricky to explain. (CDM was given an exclusive first look at the deal slightly in advance.) First, US- and Germany-based Beatport already had its own section full of loops and sound packs, called Beatport Sounds – and Beatport over the years has told us it’s been a big, growing business.

On the Loopmasters side, that company has a robust business across a number of models – you can buy sounds a la carte as downloads, you can subscribe to Loopcloud, or, via a sister company, you can stock up on plug-in effects and instruments (and preset content) via Plugin Boutique.

So, what happens now is, Beatport invests in Loopmasters, they sell their Beatport Sounds business to Loopmasters, and then over time you’ll see the Loopmasters stuff show up as part of the Beatport site. Beatport has some 36 million annual visitors, meaning that is some significant customer acquisition and sales potential added to Loopmasters. Loopmasters remains one of soundware’s enduring players, operating since 2003 and with sound partnerships with most major gear makers – plus, crucially, a huge catalog of the kinds of sounds producers in some particularly lucrative genres want. So the pairing makes sense.

There’s another angle here – there’s an overlap between content that can be streamed live, not downloaded, on a subscription model, rather than an a la carte model. That’s been Beatport’s push with Beatport Link and Beatport Pro, but only when it comes to tracks. Loopmasters has pulled off the much harder feat of making this work with sounds. Their Loopcloud tool not only lets you subscribe to content, but lets you preview sounds right inside your DAW, even matched to key and tempo.

Beatport and Loopmasters haven’t said yet what it’ll look like, but they at least promise that we’ll see these Loopmasters tools (including the streaming and subscription stuff) integrated into Beatport’s site “over the next year.”

Beatport and Loopmasters may be most excited about these gee-whiz streaming and subscription features, but with or without it, I suspect it’s a big deal that Beatport will have access to Loopmasters’ exhaustive catalog. That means for people looking for a particular genre or bit, it’s more likely to be there – and that Loopmasters can acquire DJs curious about dabbling in production (or even adding some live loops to a hybrid set) who may not yet be familiar with the Loopmasters brand and products.

This also would appear to give Loopmasters a leg up as Native Instruments works on their own Sounds.com offering. (Keeping score, at least NI now has Maschine and Komplete Kontrol integration – with the latter offering DAW integration, as does Loopcloud.) There also something coming with Plugin Boutique, but the two companies haven’t said yet what they’re thinking.

The other math here I think is pretty obvious. With more people making music, even as the business of releasing music as albums may or may not be working for producers, there’s the chance that your customers might be other producers. I even wonder if we’ll start to see distribution and marketing deals that combine releases of albums with associated loops or sound content.

Of course, whether that appeals to artists is a pretty individual decision. I do also suspect this will reignite the discussion of soundware and originality. And it’s odd, in a way, that the market is now splitting between extreme homegrown sound design (like Eurorack modular) on one hand, and loads of instant-access pre-built content on the other. But such is the state of music in 2019 – code everything from scratch, concoct it out of loops, or really anything in between. Just be aware, DJs browsing loops, you may start with looking for a tech-house groove and wind up with thousands of dollars of modular gear in your house. Don’t say we didn’t try to warn you.

All FM Translator Interference Rules to Become Effective on August 13, and August 15 Deadline for Comments on Reconsideration Filings

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Thu 1 Aug 2019 4:26 pm

The FCC’s new rules setting out a procedure to resolve complaints of interference from FM translators to full power stations will become effective on August 13. Initially, as we noted in our list of August regulatory dates for broadcasters, only the new policy allowing translators that cause interference to move to any available channel in their market was to become effective on that date. The remaining rule changes were to be assessed by the Office of Management and Budget for compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. It turns out that the OMB review has been completed and, according to a new Federal Register Notice, all of the new rules will become effective on August 13.

While these rules are set to become effective in less than two weeks, five Petitions for Reconsideration of those rules were filed last month, and comment dates have now been set on those petitions. Comments are due on August 15, with replies due by August 26. The reconsideration petitions raise many issues – from complaints that the FCC afforded too much protection to full power stations to complaints that the standards that were adopted make it too difficult for existing stations to raise a challenge. For instance, two petitions challenge the choice of the 45 dBu contour as the cut-off for interference complaints (suggesting that less protection should be given to full power stations, and one arguing that the Commission should have used the 54 dBu contour as the line at which complaints should be cut-off despite the showings of many parties that actual listening to FM stations goes far beyond that contour). On the other side, two petitions (see one here) argue that the FCC’s requirements for complaints to meet a desired-to-undesired signal ratio before they are considered to be legitimate is not an appropriate threshold consideration, and another contends that the Commission appears to have adopted a rule that only one complaint from a building would be counted in assessing interference complaints – effectively counting multiple complaints from different residents in big apartment buildings or dormitories as a single complaint. Another petition argues that allowing translator operators to shift to new channels to resolve interference complaints improperly infringes on future opportunities for new LPFM stations. In fact, LPFM advocates have requested a stay of the new rules, and the NAB filed an opposition to that request. Even though these petitions for reconsideration are pending, unless the FCC grants the stay request, the rules will go into effect on August 13.

Some important issues are raised in these petitions. Broadcasters interested in these issues should consider filing their comments with the FCC by the August 15 deadline, or respond to any comments filed by the reply deadline of August 26.

Photo Series: Tbilisi’s Underground

Delivered... Jan Chudozilov | Scene | Thu 1 Aug 2019 7:00 am

Georgia's capital Tbilisi has a vivid electronic music scene. Although more and more artists are involved, there are hardly any official live venues in the city. Watch Jan Chudozilov's photo series about informal music spaces.

Since 2017 I have been photographing concerts of experimental electronic music in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. Electronic music emerged in Georgia in the ’90ies. While in the beginning there were only a small number of people involved, in recent years general interest and the number of producers started to increase significantly. Still, there are not many venues for live music. Therefore, concerts most often happen in more informal places like art galleries, bars, private spaces or restaurants.
