’tis the season

GUEST EDITORIt’s that time of year again, and the same old problem rears its head. You see, there’s always been a difficulty with gift giving: unless you can tell someone what you truly want, and they can tell you what they truly need, there’s no trade parity. You end up with socks, they end up with yet another cuckoo clock, when you might as well have just bought yourselves what you both really desired all along. This year, it’s time to drop a few hints, and we’ve got just the way.This issue’s 2018 Rock Star Gift Guide is packed full of inspiring ideas for you or the electronic musician in your life. From pages 18 to 22, we’ve hit up a huge variety of artists for their suggestions of the…

attack of the monster slug synth

If you’re into high-energy synth DIY, you’ll love Sam Battle’s YouTube channel, Look Mum No Computer (tinyurl.com/LookMumYT). In one memorable episode, Sam downs 16 cans of Red Bull and then dangles them in front of 16 solenoids to create an electroacoustic drum machine. In another, he builds an organ out of Furby toys — one furry, animatronic monster per note. I usually watch DIY videos at 1.5X speed, but Sam’s hypercaffeinated productions are so rich I happily rewind to drink in the details.I rediscovered Look Mum while searching for oscillator circuits to build with 555 timer chips. One of the top hits was Sam’s video “The Simplest DIY Audio Oscillator? Not a 555 Chip: Reverse Avalanche” (see Figure 1). Whereas the typical 555 oscillator outputs a harsh square wave, Sam’s…

ni update massive, traktor, kontakt, maschine mikro and more…

Over the past decade or so, Native Instruments have fallen into a bit of a routine when it comes to updating the various strands of their product line. Typically, each year would bring a major update to either the Maschine ecosystem, Komplete software range or Traktor DJ line, alternating which stream took its turn to receive an overhaul. This year, however, the Berlin brand are breaking that habit with a single massive unveiling that brings news of major additions across their entire range. Dubbed ‘For The Music In You’, NI’s latest announcement brings us updated software, fresh DJ and production hardware, and even a whole new range of entry-level controllers.1 MASSIVE NEWS FOR KOMPLETEPotentially the most noteworthy announcements – at least for longtime NI fans – come from the Komplete…

markus reuter: progressive renaissance man

German guitarist Markus Reuter is a busy guy. At the age of 46, he’s enjoyed a career most musicians would envy. Since studying with King Crimson founder Robert Fripp as a teenager, music in all its guises — whether playing, composing, producing, distributing, or teaching — has consumed his every waking moment. What’s more, his diverse musical interests cast a wide net, encompassing genres ranging from ambient electronic and experimental avant-garde to progressive rock and contemporary chamber music.Markus began his musical training at the age of three, studying piano and, later, guitar and mandolin. He began composing by the time he was 12 and went on to privately study music theory and composition. His primary instrument now is the 8-string Touch Guitar, a direct descendent of the Chapman Stick that’s…

string articulations

If you’re new to string or brass arranging, the term ‘articulation’ may be unfamiliar. It describes the use of a different technique to play the instrument, achieving a particular sound or effect in the process.With a violin, for example, there are many ways to play it — you can pick the strings with your fingers, play smoothly with the bow, bounce the back of the bow off the strings, and so on. Each of these techniques or articulations has a name, and can be indicated with symbols on a musical score to give the orchestra an idea of how to play the part.When composing realistic orchestral sounds in software, most samplers or ROMplers allow you to switch between different playing styles on the fly via MIDI, to quickly change the…
