Sample-based musical instruments – be they samplers, sample players or whichever combination – have become an integral part of the sonic landscape of electronic instruments long ago. However, a question arises, and not only from a purist’s point of view: are those things really synthesizers?Read more "Synth Thoughts: Is a Sampler a Synthesizer?"
Finally, part D made it to completion, if only at DMU level. That means that only part B is not in its final shape yet…Read more "Erlanger Programm: Part D gets completed."
The second one of the big parts gets completed, at least as a digital mockup: the synth-symphonic beauty of part A in a prototype render.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Part A is completed (at least on the DMU stage)"
Erlanger Programm doesn’t use a lot of what is colloquially known as a “loop” – a short, 1-to-2 bar music segment that gets repeated. It does, however, use loops in the sense that each main part and the album as a whole can be looped. This has effects on the music. And on production.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Loops. Macro. And Micro."
