Parasites is a series of free and open source alterative firmwares for the Eurorack modules from Mutable Instruments. Their purpose is to enhance existing features, and add new function and hidden modes, retaining as much as possible factory functionality.

no computers or external hardware were used in this performance :)
patch basics:
kick: tiptop audio circadian rhythms (CR) channel 1, blue lantern asteroid BDv4 (CR is in 1×64 step mode)
snare: CR channel 2, cylonix cyclebox v2 with expo maths envelope into intellijel hex vca.
hi hat: CR channel 3. noise engineering basilicas iterus.
karplus strong style bass: make noise mysteron triggered by the intellijel metropolis which is synced the to the CR clock out. output is then multed into a vca channel and opened by the sound machines light plane then fed into the make noise erbe verb. the light plane has two recorded gates that open the vca to the erbe verb…
plucked melody: mutable instruments braids PLUK being sequenced by channel 4 of the CR and pitch sequenced by the tiptop z8000 through the intellijel uscale then processed through the tiptop z-dsp. modulation to braids parameters coming from the modcan quad lfo.
bass chords: sound source is the cyclonic shapeshifter in chord mode (5ths) and overdrive at 99 on the BiPuls waveform. this is then fed into the cwejman MMF-1 in low pass and manually adjusted throughout. additionally there is amplitude modulation by way of modcan quad LFO into a VCA. this sound is being sequenced by the divide output of the metropolis into two pressure points.
chord harmony: this is the intellijel rubicon through the serge resonant eq and modcan dual phaser and qu-bit RT60.
this sound is also being sequenced by the divide output of the metropolis into two pressure points. though this time a separate row to create the harmonies. amplitude modulation here is also coming form the modcan quad lfo into a vca.
end sub kick: CR channel 8 triggering the tiptop BD808.
end claps: CR channel 6 trigging the hex inverter mutant clap through the flame fx6.

Hypoxia – A Constant Preparation For Loss

Moe Espinosa (AKA Drumcell) has a new project called Hypoxia and its first release is musically beautiful and combined with a DIY ethos, its presentation is a piece of art. A Constant Preparation For Loss draws inspiration from 80’s films and “artists like John Carpenter, Wendy Carlos, Goblin, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream” that “steps away from the dance floor and into a broader space of contemplative drama”. Hypoxia’s A Constant Preparation For Loss uses a simple signal path: Buchla Music Easel > Eventide Space > Akai reel-to-reel.

“For me it was the first time in over a decade to take this task on my own.” From recording, to pressing vinyl, to silk screening, to shipping out records himself, Hypoxia is seeing it through to the end. The vinyl comes in five color variations, in a clear case was hand silk-screened.

“This is the 3rd release on BL_K NOISE, a small indy label created by Surachai and myself to release music that is not restrained by genre or expectations. An open format label to release whatever music we feel like whenever we want.”

Borderlands Granular iPad App

6_borderlands_resizing_a_sound

Good thing we’re not a news site because Borderlands for the iPad has been out for a couple years but the developer, Chris Carlson, has recently released version 2 – so thats kind of news? There are a lot of things to be said about the elegant interface, constant inspiration, and possibilities but I have work to do, so lets just say – it gets me away from my mouse and keyboard, produces beautiful results, especially if you load your own files, and is the perfect tool for the particular tasks I have been assigned. Unfortunately the iPad I’m using is not mine, so I’m recording as much as I can with the time I have.

Also, I’m too stupid and busy to think of a clever way to give away these promo codes for Borderlands so, uhhh… 7HTF794NFHEN, NLEPFXK96KHT. (Up high, down low…too slow)

Tip Top Records

Tiptop Records presents Various Artists 001 – Official Teaser from Tiptop Film on Vimeo.

Tiptop Audio is proud to introduce a new project for 2015: Tiptop Audio Records.
In the recent years musical productions have seen a remarkable return to the use of hardware through analog synthesizers and digital control interfaces. This trend has proven so strong that it prompted a rebirth of modular synths in a new format (eurorack). Tiptop Audio has made a name producing sophisticated but easy to use modules, designed to form a complete system that is especially effective for dance-oriented productions and live sets.
Tiptop Audio Records selected for its first issue some of the most groundbreaking artists using such systems, to present a range of artists who, through their tracks, explore the landscape of dance music in a very fresh perspective. These are the artists who inspire the Tiptop team to make more innovative devices, which in turn make new music (a nice feedback loop).
ANGLE, BLAWAN, CHRISTIAN BURKHARDT JOAO CESER, JOHN TEJADA, JOSEPH FRAIOLI, MOE ESPINOSA (DRUMCELL), KINK, RICHARD DEVINE and SURGEON each contribute a track stamped with their own style and vision. Tracks range from Surgeon’s trademark hard minimal beat, to Kink’s gauzy dreamscape, while Richard Devine and Joseph Fraioli explore the outer reaches of beat based music. The Phase VI team (John Tejada and Moe Espinosa AKA Drumcell) produces an endlessly shifting set of percolating rhythms, Christian Burkhardt and Joao Ceser put some 21st century twists on classic dance floor patterns, ANGLE lay down effortless, sophisticated Continental style and Blawan adds some industrial toned menace.
The release will initially come as a double vinyl edition, with a cover painted by the artist Matteo Giampaglia, and a digital download version will follow.
An original video teaser will introduce the compilation, then other videoclips of the individual tracks will be realized by exciting new visual artists.
