TransMIDIfier

TransMIDIfier

Maybe you guys have heard about midi tools such as Mind Control from "Orange Tree Samples", that works within Kontakt and allows you to create rules for how Kontakt should automatically switch between sample libraries, making sequencing or performing more convenient and intuitive. The switching can be based on simple elements like pitch, velocity,
Embertone

Embertone

Among the huge virtual instruments world market, there are the bigs (e.g. VSL, East West, Spectrasonics, etc...) and there are the smalls ... One of those companies is called Embertone. They appeared recently in the market and started to offer some freebies; such as "Intimate Strings LITE", which is a part of a bigger library coming soon: However,
The crazy guy is back!

The crazy guy is back!

Yes ... Diego Stocco ... you know, the guy who burned his piano in his garden while making Omnisphere with Spectrasonics team: Well, after Omnisphere he worked on creating what I'll call "mutant" accoustic instruments with strange names such as the "Experiviolin", the "Glockenstrange", the "Luminopiano" and the "Experibass", which gathers kinda hol
Derniere Nuit

Derniere Nuit

As you all know the end of the world is coming soon :-) Here's a nice little short film called "Derniere Nuit" (meaning "the final night"). It is an experimental short film, made by Dessil Basmadjian, inspired by a 1973 poem of his father, Garig Basmadjian, depicting the end of the world.

For those who are wondering what "Will Not Fix" means, well, it's actually a very common term used in t
The Dehumaniser

The Dehumaniser

I'll still be amazed by what can be done with Max/MSP. I found this program very impressive and gives amazing results, when it's time to make some monster sounds. Basically, you can record your own voice or import an audio file, and then you're free to play with all modules available, that include granular, spectral shifter, poly pitch shifting, pi
End of "new music" ... Are we there yet?...

End of "new music" ... Are we there yet?...

.... Of course not! :-) ... I know, the title sounds rude a bit isn't it :-) But check the video below; it's a very interesting analysis that explores many parameters .... In fact, it's true that us, composers, have to deal with only 12 notes during our entire life right? :-) .... Just, think about .... And yes, it's not infinite, but I think we st
His Majesty, Sir Bosendorfer Imperial!

His Majesty, Sir Bosendorfer Imperial!

Today, I saved $179,345!!! ... :-) Actually, I just bought the Vienna Imperial from Vienna Symphonic Library. I'm already a big user of the library and programs which come with it, and own quite a lot of instruments ( Please don't force me to count how much I've spent on these! ;-)), and this one was missing in my collection. In fact, I do own seve
