Presenting Euclid Grid

I’m introducing Euclid Grid by Kyaa, a new module for the AE Modular system. I have been a beta tester for this module and I’m incredibly impressed by it and had a lot of fun playing with it. You find more information on how to purchase this module here: https://kyaa.co/product/euclid-grid

Interview with Tim Held at Podular Modcast

Tim Held has established quite a following with his weekly podcasts which he aptly named Podular Modcast. He approached Robert and I at Synthbooth and asked us whether we would like to do an interview with him to which we gladly agreed. This was again one of those 2020 Zoom interviews over 3 continents: Tim in Seattle USA, Robert in Germany near Munich and I in Australia. It was a very relaxed interview with Tim being a fantastic host and interviewer.

At the end he posed a patch challenge for the words “PURE DAWN” to which I obliged mainly because coincidentally I had recorded a good 30 minutes of birdsong one morning just a few days prior and I always wanted to use this in a song anyway. So my track at the end of the interview features our early morning bird concert.

I hope when you listen to this interview you will enjoy it as much as I did while being “on the show”. Thanks to Tim for doing this and thanks again to Robert for the creation of this fabulous synthesizer system.

Livestream for SynthBooth 2020

Today I was on a Zoom call with Robert which was streamed live to the tangible waves YouTube channel. Robert talked about how the AE Modular system came about and we gave a quick overview of the various modules that are available from the tangible waves website. I then showed a performance that showcased most of those modules.

My Studio is complete

It was a fun journey, fuelled by GAS and not knowing what to do and how to do it. But now I feel that with my latest acquisitions I have narrowed it down to the essentials: The AE Modular from tangible waves for for modular experimentation, the Deluge from Synthstrom Audible for all sequencing, sampling, looping and beats and now for all the digital and bombastically orchestral sounds – the brand new Korg Wavestate. For FM sounds I also have the Korg Volca FM, but currently I’m not sure when I will have time for it.

With these instruments I have now finally no more excuses. I can (theoretically) make any sound that I would ever want. The Deluge can play any sample and even single cycle waveforms. The Wavestate has a store of over 1000 different sounds that can be morphed, cycled and shaped.

NO MORE EXCUSES.

Live at Oscillations 2019

This is the final video of my first live performance together with Adam on guitar at Oscillations 2019 the first ever synth festival in the Bega Valley in NSW, Australia.

Big thanks to Sats Kramer and Ray Toms for the camera work and especially Scott Baker for mixing and cutting it all up into this video!
