Free IAP sale: make your own split-screen music videos with Roland 4XCAMERA

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Tue 21 Apr 2020 7:34 pm

You’ve seen those split-screen music videos. Now an app helps you make your own – and its normally paid in-app purchases are free for a limited time.

I’m posting this mainly because I hope some CDMer out there will do something weird and unexpected with it. But yeah, this is an app from Roland. And there are some useful features in it.

You can load a song onto your device and use that as a monitoring guide. (There are now even some drum performance video clips to get you started, but hey, you’re going to use your own stuff, right?)

And most importantly, the aspect ratios and layouts are handled for you. So basically you can power up your iPad or iPhone and focus on making your music performance work, rather than the tedium of learning how to deal with the video side.

I’m putting this out there in part because I’d love to see an electronic creation in this fashion. Let us know if you do. But it is absolutely useful having the in-app purchases (IAP) for free, because normally this is limited to two videos and doesn’t have full feature functionality.

Where to start in Eurorack? This video makes you a Buchla Music Easel-style rig, but in modules

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Tue 21 Apr 2020 7:21 pm

Eurorack may be known for its addictiveness, but some synth lovers suffer just as much for tyranny of choice. This tutorial cures both that and Buchla Music Easel envy.

The Music Easel, if you don’t know it, is a beautiful instrument – a lunchbox full of seemingly limitless possibilities. And you can even get a brand-spanking new rendition of the 1973 original, with the Buchla name badge (or their current incarnation).

But even though that instrument is known for its all-in-one design, there’s reason to think Eurorack as an option – greater flexibility, lower cost, each by a significant margin.

Or to put it another way, it’s a great way to understand different module choices without getting overwhelmed. And that’s where this video from Mylar Melodies comes in:

It’s a pretty good rundown of the Music Easel itself (meaning a useful explainer there), as it starts with the real thing. Then, mindful of limitations, it walks through a suggested system with related features, plus how to make sounds and sequence your ideas, too.

Also, there’s a big supporting star in the form of Arturia’s low-cost MicroFreak, so this gives you a taste for what that instrument is capable of – and how you might connect it, analog style.

(I’m also tempted to try some of this stuff in VCV Rack and other computer software – and the MicroFreak still holds potential.)

Amplitude modulation, frequency modulation, sequencing, and a techno jam – all bases covered!

Mylar Melodies promises more in this series.

It’s the first in a new “suggested systems” concept series I’ve been brewing for some months – using a small 62HP Intellijel Palette eurorack case to make examples of focused, purpose-driven modular rigs and then demo and explain them on camera. Eg. “Generative melody system”, “subtractive semi-modular synth expander”, “self playing drone machine”, and first and foremost “Buchla Music Easel-inspired synth”. 

It’s based on the infinite number of “where do I start” posts where people are getting lost in this format as they’re paralysed by choice – so it’ll give some much needed tangible serving suggestions (far smaller than off the shelf systems, except the Erica Synths Pico), and it’s also a way to discuss basic modular concepts in a form that’s actually clear and digestible – which I just don’t think you can do when you have a massive modular on camera. And mores the point, I don’t want to glorify having a massive rig, full stop – I think it’s far better overall to glorify having a tiny one. So that’s what this aims to do. 

Look forward to more in this series – it’s a great idea!

PS, you can check out the Intellijel cases and power and accessories used in this series:

Now let’s see if Eurobuchla becomes a thing. West Coast – as in the west coast of Portugal?

Croaks, squelches, waterfalls: the visionaries bringing the jungle to your headphones

Delivered... Harley Brown | Scene | Tue 21 Apr 2020 3:22 pm

We can’t experience nature in lockdown – but a new breed of field recorders have captured the sounds of the great outdoors in all their crashing, squawking glory

Last December, Lucrecia Dalt travelled to a rainforest in Colombia that is part of the Chocó, a biodiversity hotspot stretching all the way from Costa Rica to Ecuador. She was seeking that rare thing: time to do nothing but just be. However, the last thing she wanted was peace and quiet.

The organisation Más Arte Más Acción had invited the Colombian-German producer to participate in a residency called Espacio para Pensar (“space to reflect”) and Dalt took US noise musician Aaron Dilloway along. The pair swiftly immersed themselves in the jungle’s rich, complex soundscape, recording parrots, frogs, insects, crashing surf, squelching mud, and even the transition from night to day.

Berlin’s DIY Radio Scene Booms, but Braces Itself for an Uncertain Future

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Tue 21 Apr 2020 3:02 pm

For a moment in mid-2019, the future of independent online radio in Berlin looked bleak. The city’s most recognizable station for electronic and experimental music, Berlin Community Radio, announced it was shutting down. “It is with heavy heart that we came to this decision, but we reached a dead end and spirits have fallen low after losing all funding in 2018...
