Computer Music Goodies

I have a huge backlog with reading my favourite magazine “Computer Music”. Every month I’m looking forward to the next issue, but lately I have been too busy with my work, my family life and my participation in the online Artificial Intelligence course, so the latest 6 volumes were still wrapped in their cellophane packaging, […]

Blade: Rob Papen’s new synth

Rob Papen has built a new synth: Blade. The UI is beautiful, but does it sound good? According to this month’s Computer Music #175 Blade is Papen’s response to Image-Line’s Harmor; additive technology but presented in an easy-to-use way.

Sample Tank & Live

IK-Multimedia has a group-buy for their Xpansion Tank 2, including some titles, depending on how many participants will join.

  • Kuehleborn’s Unfathomable Thoughts

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It's about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things. Definitely the only way to travel. - Martin Delaney – “Laptop Music”
