old is new again

For much of the past decade a lot of hardware developers, at least the more affordable end of the market, have seemingly been obsessed with recreating the sound of vintage gear. However, after years of 808-alikes and vintage-styled monosynths, things seem to be swinging back toward towards innovation (with the exception of Behringer, of course, who continue their mission to clone every instrument ever released). 2020 so far seems to have been a year of interesting and unique instruments, and even retro-leaning gear like Polyend’s Tracker has put a fresh spin on old ideas. It’s that sense of innovation we’re trying to tap into with this issue’s cover feature; taking the bread-and-butter theme of beat-making and exploring lesser used ideas and unique modern tools. We hope you enjoy the mag.…

ni finally step out of the box with maschine+

> The past year has seen Native Instruments make headlines on several occasions for reasons other than their products, with controversies over mass redundancies, a later-reversed decision to discontinue a host of older products, criticisms of how the company handled internal racism and, most recently, a change of management at the top. NI now seem to be bringing focus back to the gear itself, with a string of big announcements capped off by the long-awaited arrival of a fully standalone Maschine. NI launched the first iteration of their controller-centric beatmaking system back in 2009, at a time when standalone samplers and MPCs had fallen out of fashion in favour of laptop-powered systems. In the past decade though, things have swung back the other way somewhat; the likes of Akai’s MPC Live…

will free vst synth pendulum wreak havoc in your daw?

> Free VST synth plugins are pretty common, but free ones that come from well-respected developers and promise something new and innovative aren’t so easy to find. This is what we’re told to expect from Newfangled Audio and Eventide’s Pendulate, though; described as a chaotic monosynth, it’s said to feature a brand-new oscillator technique that can generate “previously unheard sounds”. Pendulate is so-named because it’s based on the physics of a double pendulum. You might think it looks random, but underneath there are underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organisation. In audible terms, this means that you can smoothly fade from a simple sine wave to a chaotic sonic maelstrom, stopping off at everything in between. The oscillator is matched with a wavefolder and low-pass gate that were…

make a statement with softube’s simple new edm plugin lead synth

> Designed to complement its Monoment Bass plugin, Softube’s new Statement Lead synth puts the focus on creating EDM, DnB and house lead sounds, and all with minimal production fuss. Although it’s designed to be beginner-friendly, Softube assures us that Statement’s sounds are based on carefully recorded and processed sounds from “rare and expensive” hardware synths, at a high standard, and there are drive, reverb, delay, multiband compression and spatialisation effects, too. Of course, an instrument like this needs a decent selection of presets, and we’re assured that there are no fillers among the 150-plus found here. Use them as is or as starting points for further tweaking. Regular price will be $99, but you can purchase it for $89 until 1 October.…

algoriddim’s neural mix pro player lets you separate vocal, drum and instrument tracks

> Having previously added its Neural Mix tech to their djay app, Algoriddim have now released Neural Mix Pro, a standalone music player and editor for the Mac that lets you separate instruments and vocals in any song and export individual tracks so that they can be used in your DAW. This “real-time music source separation” technology clearly has massive potential for those who want to grab samples and create remixes, though you’ll need to consider the legal implications of doing this, obviously. A browser lets you sort and select tracks, and there’s also a Loop Editor to trim your audio to perfection. You can also change the key and tempo of songs that you play – zplane’s élastique Pro V3 engine is built in – and to isolate and…
