I’ve been playing games from the DiRT series of rally games (in turn, a successor of the Colin McRae Rally series) for quite some time. More specifically, I enjoyed playing both DiRT 2 and DiRT 3, at least for what they were: action games in which you steer something resembling a car over a road […]Read more "Review: DiRT Rally"
Ever worked with a synthesizer and thought “a great thing, if it only had that additional feature, or did implement that one differently”? Today, I’m looking at a few of my synths and comment on those aspects.Read more "Synths: That missing feature"
A few weeks ago, I asked you what I should do next. Now, I’ve made my decision…(drumroll): #secretalbum: Baßtelstube It’s about stringed bass instruments. Most of which are gonna be bass guitars, of which most are gonna be electric. A set of sixteen compositions for bass solo, duo and trio lineups. And true to the […]Read more "“Baßtelstube” – the new project"
In part 2 of this series on synth envelopes, we’ll look at some case studies – actual implementations of synth envelopes, to align them with the theory from part 1. Instrumentation, Test Cases, and Devices under Test I tried to make the instrumentation as simple as possible: I’ll be using patches that have a (white) […]Read more "Synth Envelopes – Case Studies: Introduction and Arturia MiniBrute"
It’s been more than a month since I released my last album, Erlanger Programm. Time to consider what I should do next musically.Read more "What’s Up Next? – What Would You Like?"
Envelopes. The most important components of a synthesizer outside of the signal path. They’re pretty simple, though – or are they?Read more "About Synth Envelopes"
I had done something like this before – comparing three kinda dissimilar synths. This time, we’re having three contemporary analogue synths – although that’s not exactly true, as one of our competitors, the DSI Tetra, has just been discontinued. The two opponents are Waldorf’s Pulse 2, and Arturia’s MiniBrute. The three competitors Arturia’s MiniBrute has […]Read more "Synth Shootout: MiniBrute – Pulse 2 – Tetra"
