  • Make Noise Rene Module Goes Three-Dimensional

    After spending two years on its development, Make Noise has announced the release of a brand new version of the Rene R2 synthesizer module. While the original Rene was a one-channel, two-dimensional Cartesian sequencer, the newly updated module explores for another dimension altogether.

    Based on the coordinate system of mathematician René Descartes, the Make Noise Music Rene R2 is now the world's only 3D Music Sequencer. The module now features a three-channel, three-dimensional sequencer with memory that can hold up to 64 complete STATEs. This gives you access to perform and program on multiple different axis with new all new touch sensing technology. Continue reading

  • First Listen: Moog Grandmother Synthesizer

    Prior to Moogfest 2018, Moog Music announced the launch of a new synthesizer, the Moog Grandmother. This semi-modular synthesizer features a built-in arpeggiator, sequencer and spring reverb tank, allowing both novices and synth enthusiasts the ability to use the instrument straight out of the box.

  • The Tape Delay And Echo Of Strymon's Magneto

    Strymon Engineering has been a giant in the pedal world for years, thanks in part to classic releases like the TimeLine, Mobius and BigSky. For the brand's first foray into the modular synth realm, Strymon has brought back a favorite element of the BigSky pedal, dubbed the Magneto.

    The Magneto applies an expanded concept of the pedal setting in modular synth form, as it offers up stereo multi-head tape delay via four playback heads and one record head. This tape delay gives you a looper, phrase sampler, vintage spring reverb unit, phase-aligned clock multiplier, chaotic oscillator, zero latency sub-oscillator and more, in one module.

  • Hot Stuff: The History of Gershon Kingsley's "Popcorn"

    As one of the first hit songs to ever use a Moog synthesizer, "Popcorn" was both a sign of its times and a look far ahead into the future of music. Before soft synthesizers were ever a glimmer in an engineer's eye, electronic-music pioneers like "Popcorn" writer Gershon Kingsley were using big, bulky analog units with no presets to create musical magic.

    Kingsley, now 95-years-old, began playing the synthesizer in the 1960s, but that’s not where his love of music began. Kingsley had already earned a name for himself in the world of musical theatre, even earning a Tony Nomination in 1958 for his Conducting and Directing. Throughout his lengthy career, he’s arranged music for film and television, Broadway musicals, and many songs for Jewish religious ceremonies, but his most famous work is an instrumental synth-pop song inspired by a salty snack.
