Korg Introducing Real Analog Gear At Musikmesse; Can You Guess What It Is?

Users of Korg’s iElectribe or iMS-20 for the iPad got a surprise today if they booted up the apps – a startup screen teaser for an as-of-yet unannounced piece of “real analog” electronic music hardware that they will be releasing at this year’s Musikmesse 2011.The teaser, captured above, asks “Ready to tweak some real analog hardware?”.To which we answer, “Hell, yeah!”From the image, it appears to feature an analog filter with Cutoff and Peak adjustments, a waveform selection toggle switch, a Narrow/Wide toggle, several toggles with blurry titles and a matrix of LED button switches.Is it the rumored Korg Monotribe? An über-Monotron?Or is it something else entirely? Let us know what you think it is…..



Moog Polyphonic Theremin

Click here to view the embedded video.Moog Music today officially released the Moog PolyTheremin – the world’s first polyphonic theremin.Above, Dorit Chrysler intros the new Moog PolyTheremin.The Theremin is one of the earliest and most widely known electronic instruments. The sound of the Theremin has distinguished hit records from such diverse artists as The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Clara Rockmore and Linkin Park.Moog Music designers have announced the first major technical Theremin design advance in over 40 years. The PolyTheremim incorporates bleeding edge IsoDirectional Inductive Oscillator Technology, to isolate space around five individual pitch antennas thus enabling each to be played simultaneously (finger-by-finger) without interference from its companion antennas. This revolutionary concept breaks the long held belief that the Theremin could only be monophonic instrument.The PolyTheremin ships with Dorit Chrysler’s instructional video “Playing the PolyTheremin is Even Easier Than Playing a Monophonic Theremin.”Purchase the Etherwave PolyTheremin at the Moog site.

Micronaut – Experiment Five

Click here to view the embedded video.Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a hybrid analog + digital live in the studio synth jam from musician/developer/writer Chris Randall.Here’s what he has to say about Micronoaut – Experiment Five:Sequenced from Live, and I’m using a Korg nanoControl to turn tracks on and off and such.I play the DSI TETR4 from my iPad running Audanika’s SoundPrism app, which is a very cool MIDI controller app done in a cycle-of-fifths layout. The little bass sound that comes in here and there is The World’s Most Expensive CS-5, while a René sequencer drives a SynthTech Cloud Generator for the arpeggiated sine part from the modular.MeeBlip is running in to a Roland RE-201 for the sound you hear very early on, the snare-ish hit that has a spring ‘verb and echo. The other sound right in the beginning is an MS-20 running in to my circuit-bent BOSS RRV-10.The other prevalent effects are Eos for the ‘verb, and the Eventide TimeFactor on its ModDelay algorithm, in line from the TETR4. This is what creates the big hollow drone sound. I just jack the feedback up full and when it is humming along I hit the repeat button.Audio is available at bandcamp.via Cranda11



Real Bands Use Real Synths

Click here to view the embedded video.Do “Real Bands Use Real Synths”?That’s the claim of keyboardist Jeffrey McFerson, part of the So Cal band Northern Labour Party. They have just released their music video for their tune Less Than Three.McFerson sends word, via that Submit A Story page, that the Northern Labour Party hasn’t “succumbed to the iPad and soft synth craze. They still use the Minimoog Voyager and Alesis Andromeda for both live gigs and studio recordings.”While it’s great that McFerson is carrying the banner for live synth performance, the anti soft synth rhetoric is a little harsh. A band can suck just as hard using hardware synths as software synths.What do you think? Do “Real Bands Use Real Synths”?And, if you’re in a “real band” that uses software synths, how about sharing some mind-blowing performance videos?
