"Emits a Photon" is the answer - a free granular synthesis patch for Camel Audio Alchemy. This sample was recorded in my dorm at Electro-Music 2010 Festival. Listen to the... Read more →


I received a Korg microKEY USB powered as a gift over the holidays – woot! Here is a hands-on review. Size It’s bigger than I expected. Here are some shots giving you some perspective. Here it is when compared to an Akai LP2K25. Here it is compared to my Novation... Read more →

Deep in the subterranean Waldorf Laboratories, our scientists have finally discovered the finish that delivers the best sound. We almost had forgot about them when the resurfaced and... Read more →

A motion pad with vocal characteristics. Mod Wheel controls FXPingPong2Time. Use the Mod Wheel to add change speed and pitch of delays. I programmed “Crusher” so the patch works with it off and on. In the sample below, I use the same MIDI clip with Mod Wheel automation and record... Read more →

A motion pad using Fractalize with a stepping envelope to modulate oscillator A.Granular synthesis is used for oscillator B using factory wave sample Cello-Class.wav. These oscillators have a metalic sparkling sound at the high end of the keyboard. In lower octaves this sounds more choir-like. On Oscillator C I'm using... Read more →

Motivation I've had a passion for programming synths and working with samplers for over 20 years. I'm constantly experimenting and creating new patches with a large variety of electronic music...
