  1. Encompassing Environments: The Tools For Creating Ambient Music

    Encompassing Environments: The Tools For Creating Ambient Music
    There's no doubt that ambient music is currently seeing a resurgence. It could be the well-timed Mort Garson and Laurie Spiegel reissues that piqued interest or even documentaries like Sisters With Transistors. Maybe it's the fact a pandemic effectively canceled band practice for the foreseeable future. Either way, we're here to embrace these soothing sounds. If you haven't dabbled in the ambient artform, it's incredibly easy and fun to zone out making lush landscapes. Without the need for bandmates, musicians can take their own spin on beat making, sound design, field recording, looping and create something all their own. Today we’re gonna take a look at some of the popular tools that will help you create your own ambient sounds. Continue reading →

  6. Korg Reimagines FM Synthesis With The opsix Altered FM Synthesizer

    Korg Reimagines FM Synthesis With The opsix Altered FM Synthesizer
    The dream of FM Synthesis is alive and well with the new Korg opsix Altered FM Synthesizer. The legendary instrument manufacturer is back with a synth that features six FM operators, 64 voices of polyphony, 42 on-board effects, a 16 step sequencer, a virtual patch bay, and much, much more. Before we get into the opsix, let's talk a little about FM Synthesis. FM (short for Frequency Modulation) Synthesis is "additive synthesis," whereas traditional analog synthesizers use "subtractive synthesis." Traditional FM synthesizers utilize a simple starting wave to build up more complex sounds. They often get a bad reputation for being kind of laborious and menu-driven, but the opsix changes that.

  9. The Lush Sounds And Deep Feature Set Of The Echo Fix EF-X2

    The Lush Sounds And Deep Feature Set Of The Echo Fix EF-X2
    As a trusted resource of repairs for over decade, Echo Fix has certainly established themselves as the go-to when your tape echo machine has gone haywire. So it makes sense that the Australian company would go even further down the prototyping, testing, and design rabbit hole to create their own take on the classic tape echo. The resulting Tape Echo EF-X2 is nothing short of stunning. This unit has an extremely deep feature set, which starts with four basic functions; tape echo, real spring reverb, DSP reverb/chorus and preamp. From there, the possibilities to tweak and develop creative sounds are endless. Continue reading →
