Meet Austrian-bred (but German-born) producer, composer and musician Patrick Pulsinger. He is a huge but really awesome nerd when it comes to modular synthesisers, and here he is trying to explain how it all works to a room full of interested people.
Well, these new itty-bitty analogue synthesisers from Korg are just so cute I want to gobble them up. From the demo video above, it sounds like the three Volca series keyboards are lovely little groove machines you might want to use too.
NAMM is the musical instrument industry’s annual woohoo of a trade show where all the big names show off the fancy new wares they want the musicians of the world to embrace. But if you don’t actually go to the show, the best part is watching demo videos full of crazy sound and batshit blinking lights. Here’s our favourite stuff from this year’s show, complete with the desire inducing videos.
From 1978 to 1983, Korg produced the MS-20, a two-oscillator analogue synth that was patchable with 6mm cables a lot like a custom modular synth setup. People liked it because of its smooth sound and because the patch panel allowed you a limited degree of customisability without needing to invest in additional units. The MS-20 mini is this classic synth reborn in a tinier package.
Legendary jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock stops by Sesame Street to explain the inner workings of the state-of-the-art (in 1983, at least) Fairlight CMI synthesiser and its monochrome touchscreen monitor to a bunch of seven year-olds.
And to think your parents claimed you were wasting your life playing thousands of hours of video games as a kid. Little did they know you were actually building up important musical skills that could one day see you performing at Carnegie Hall — at least if they let you play this fantastic Pianocade keyboard/video game controller hybrid.
