A late christmas present

In ableton, dubstep, link on December 30, 2010 at 16:23

Hello! The christmas holidays are over. Jim Hurley has made us a late christmas present. The exciting live livepack is called overload.  Surprisingly, there is no page about the livepack. I just can offer you the download links for Abelton Live 7 and Live 8.

A late christmas present

After installation you can find the devices in your lives device browser under:

  • Instruments/Instrument Rack/-Jim Hurley-/Overload
  • Audio Effects/Audio Effects Racks/-Jim Hurley-/Overload
  • MIDI Effetcs/Midi Effect Rack/-Jim Hurley-/Overload

But what do the instruments sound like? I would call them experimental, atmospherical and dark. So a good choice for making dubstep. Check out my sound example to gain your own impression.

For my mind the instruments stereo effects are a bit over the top. So I used the Abelton’s Utility effect to reduce the influence. Unfortunately, these instruments stresses your CPU. 60 percent CPU usage is too much. I propose you record a audio clip to use it.

That’s all for 2010. I wish you a happy new year.

Sometimes I ask myself what’s the style of a song. Or I am looking for some sound examples of a special music style. The following page is offering a tour through all important electronic music styles. Sorry, for the terrible design.

Today I decided that my blog hear and know should join twitter:


By the way http://myfirsttweet.com doesn’t help finding the right first words, I suppose.

Stay tuned!


Flash strikes back

Hello again! I don’t want to reopen the discussion about annoying flash. But there is a beautiful flash based instrumen ToneMatrixs from Andre Michelle. I would say a flash-audio guru. You may know him from Hobnox-audiotools. He created a matrix step sequencer and synth similar to the Tenori-On or the Monome.

Check out the single instrument or the whole virtual studio:

Who needs software?

Yesterday I stumbled upon a interesting web service called Myna at Aviary.com.

I think this web application should not be considered as an online sound editor. Better call Myna a online remixing application. You can use tracks from a library, your uploaded or recorded files. There are track seperated effects and a mastering section. I think you should try it.


It’s time…

It’s time for a my first entry – I will not longer fear the blank page.

This post a about a german audio and video podcast. Musotalk TV is my favorite. Reports about events, interviews, virtual instruments, effects and digital audio production in general.

Try this, if you are tired of reading magazines.
