Encanti demonstrates the QuNeo MIDI controller by Keith McMillen Instruments to program patches for Z3ta+2 VST synthesizer by Cakewalk, running Ableton Live Suite 8 using Windows 7 (via bootcamp partition) on an Intel MacBook Pro.
Each square pad is sending MIDI CC data on X and Y axes using “Latch” mode. The CC messages are sent to different synth parameters within Z3ta+2. The MIDI notes and drum loop are both pre-recorded in this example.
Recorded from a recent gig. The night is geared towards experimental stuff rather than 4/4 dance stuff which i prefer lot more.
OP1 and machinedrum are not synced. Just set their BPMs same and jam away. OP1 goes through machinedrum for further processing!
Amazing custom patches for the DSI Evolver! Very very nice! Everyone go to his website and ask him to share the SYSEX! 🙂
60 minute mix
1 Elektron Monomachine sequencing

Here you can check out his latest music, remixes, and videos. Lately some new track previews for an upcoming album, sounding great!
Here is one of the latest previews:
Majestic Casual also just paired amazing scenery to one of Need a Name’s latest tracks. The result is stunning. Check it out here. I suggest full screen + headphones. 🙂
Other things to check out are the free Windows VSTis and Reaktor Ensembles.
Hope to hear and highlight more from Need a Name very soon. Enjoy!

Really nice for a first Jam! This is a great video to watch how he breaks down the Octratrack parts, and note the slider use. Excellent, looking forward to more! Also spot the Shruthi. Sounds great!
First “jam” with my new Octatrack. Samples come from my Juno-106, Slim Phatty and Omnisphere. The mainmelody is routed out through the el capistan and ehx cathedral, and then back in to the Octatrack.Download the Track
The mainoutputs of the Octatrack was recorded in Logic Pro (Fireface800) with UBK-1 and Pro-L on the master bus.
This release from AnalogIndustries deserves a bump. The compilation was released digitally close to a month ago, the vinyl is now shipping as well. 🙂
The compilation is “pay what you want” style, minimum $5 for the digital, $15 for the album.
This album is a collection of music curated from the Analog Industries community. Every track was written specially for this compilation, and can be found nowhere else. 100% of the net proceeds of the sale of this album are donated to the Breast Assured Foundation, an organization that provides early breast cancer detection services for underprivileged women via a sophisticated mobile screening lab.

Unsuspected Sounds, Vol. 1
Linking this one for anyone who hasn’t seen this yet:
The BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop was set up in 1958, born out of a desire to create ‘new kinds of sounds’. Alchemists of Sound looks at this creative group from its inception, through its golden age when it was supplying music and effects for cult classics like Doctor Who, Blake’s Seven and Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, and charts its fading away in 1995 when, due to budget cuts, it was no longer able to survive.
There are interviews with composers from the Workshop, as well as musicians and writers who have been inspired by the output. Great archive footage of the Workshop and its machinery is accompanied by excerpts of the, now cult, TV programmes that featured these sounds.
First broadcast October, 2003. Last Broadcast May, 2005.
This includes some awesome shots and segments of Delia Derbyshire.
PS – Does anyone know who the guy is in the dark standing behind everyone getting interviewed?!?!?! LOL
Check out this live set from Tarekith:
Very well put together and arranged. The best part is no computers, really inspiring to see more artists doing things just inside their boxes or hardware. Very inspiring. Keep up the good work.
Eric (alt_mode) has shared his flickr set for the AHNE 2012 meeting this past weekend. Check out some of the great shots here:alt_mode’s AHNE 2012 pics!
Thanks to all who made it to AHNE yesterday. It was a good turnout with 31 people signing in. Lots of good folks and good synths. The evening jam sessions were particularly great this year.
Wish I could have made it, maybe next year!
