Cinematic Fugue Machine Jam
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

PerplexOn took the iPad outside on a rainy day for jamming with a minimalist piano sequence, combined with the sound of rain and a touch of gritty synth. Controlled with a Korg nanoKONTROL.

Apps in use:

Fugue Machine | multi-playhead sequencer – Alexandernaut

iGrand Piano – IK Multimedia

iSEM Synthesizer – Arturia

Eos 2 – Audio Damage, Inc.

AUM – Audio Mixer – Kymatica (Jonatan Liljedahl)

BeatMaker 3 – INTUA

While iGrand Piano was used on location, the piano track was replaced with the beautiful and more nuanced Una Corda Piano by Native Instruments afterwards. This was done by recording the actual midi output of Fugue Machine live with Beatmaker 2 in the background and then exporting this midi track to the DAW.

This track is a free download:

Turnado and DSI Tempest Jam

Sugar Bytes Turnado

Hello everyone. Here is a simple little set up for adding subtle fills and effects to a hardware jam. I used an iTrack dock, iPad, Sugar Bytes Turnado, Big Sky, and Dave Smith Tempest. Please subscribe to my channel. I hope you enjoy the tune!

Get a Dave Smith Tempest drum machine and synthesizer here http://amzn.to/2llvlk3

Turnado is a revolutionary multi-effect tool, crafted especially for massive real-time audio manipulation. It combines unique and dynamic effects with the most intuitive and immediate control you can imagine. Just turn it on and crank it up.

Take it to the stage and unleash Turnado’s true power. With instant access to eight effects and immediate control over key parameters, Turnado is guaranteed to cause devastation on the dance floor, shredding beats and crunking breaks to insane proportions.

Features at a Glance:
– 4 XY-Pads to control 2 Effects simultaneously (X,Y)
– Integrated Player (iTunes File Sharing, Music Library, Factory Loops)
– Integrated Recorder (div. Optionen: Start/Stop/Sync/Länge)
– Live Modus (Inputs & Outputs selectable)
– Auria Plug-In
– Inter-App Audio support
– Audiobus support
– AudioCopy/AudioShare import
– AudioCopy/AudioShare/Soundcoud/Dropbox export
– Full Midi Support (Virtual, Network, Extern)
– Midi Clock Sync
– Zoom

The idea is simple:
Turn a knob and the effect is on.
Turn the knob further to adjust effect parameters and apply modulations.
Turn the knob down and the effect is off.

With its instantaneous, one-knob, multi-parameter modulation features, Turnado will lay waste to the audio landscape. Giving you the power to crunch, chop, twist, mash and elevate your music to new levels, Turnado will have you creating wicked new sounds that will blow any crowd away.

Unlocking the power of your MIDI controller each effect requires only one knob to control it. Underneath this simplicity lies a matrix of effect parameters and modulation engines, all controlled by the main knob. This control matrix provides serious depth to the plugin and gives you the ability to create original and truly unique effect programs.

If the power of one-knob action still doesn’t rock your boat, the awesome “Dictator” mode will sink your battleship. It allows you to animate all the main knobs and run that animation with just one fader. That’s one fader, controlling up to 8 different effects, with potentially hundreds of parameter changes!

Turnado’s primary focus is on beat manipulation, so you will find lots of loopers, slicers and grain tools in the rack. Alongside these beat-mashing effects are an arsenal of distortions and filters as well as first-class delays and reverbs. With extensive modulation possibilities each effect can produce millions of unbelievable variations that can be morphed and twisted into something new every time you tweak those knobs.
Turnado will inspire you again and again, delivering completely new variations of your original sounds and grooves every time, so what are you waiting for…turn it on.
