    Die Musotalk-Livesendung zur NAMM
    (german talk about NAMM)
    -Wir sprechen über die NAMM Neuheiten Teil 2:

    Teil 1 – ohne mich aber wird vollständiger dadurch:

    *Musotalk kommt normalerweise 12:00 Donnerstags live mit Chat
  27. Feedback:
    Forum: Tops Flops – NAMM 2015
    Forum: Nach der NAMM: wer kauft nun was genau?

furthermore / und weiter gab es noch:

  • Novation Launchpad Pro – Multicolour Launchpad -> Video – sort of Push Mini
  • Elektron Overbridge (video) – integrates all audio and MIDI, sync to any Elektron Machine – use analog filters etc as plugin on a DAW – quite a bit like Roland MX but with Software FOR analog devices
  • Moog Sub37 Update (12min video) in Feb.: Mod Parameters can be set by “touching” them instead of searching it in the menu! Sequencer updated: step seen at LED running through button LEDs, quick Sequence Select, Rotation, Swing, LFO Swing, Seq back&forth etc. as well, CV to MIDI / CV to Trigger, instant-rec-play (live sequencing)
  • “Free” Pro Tools called Pro Tools | First (<– video)  – what could be in and what might not be in? CDM found out:
    “16 mono or stereo audio tracks16 Instrument Tracks16 MIDI tracks4 simultaneous audio inputs, maxNo videoOffline bounce, but limited export/interchange apart from audio bounceLoop recording, but many of the advanced edit tools are missing, including punch and automationMore restricted instrument/effect suite, though you still get the Xpand!2 instrument and some effects”-> But – you are in the cloud and can only save some songs in the cloud – after that you need to buy things – so in fact it is a demo, not free!
  • Keith McMillen K-Mix Audio-Interface (USB) PDF/Info and Mixer / Controller (known from Qunexus etc) with 8ins/8outs with cool 3D Controllers for multichannel routing (!) -> Forum & Video K-Mix
  • nice images: Modules Modules Modules
  • Omnisphere 2 is out.
  • Yamaha AN1X App & their future..
  • Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator (2x) – mentioned before NAMM – final Design looks like this.
  • Morphing Sounds – Morph by Prosoniq now @Zynaptic -rottened Rottweiler becoming a Borg

Post NAMM Info:
What ppl clicked most: Roland & Waldorfs “Navetable”-Synth – stats from sun 25th.Jan 2015: 19:10 euro time. First 2 items a lot more than others. I wonder why the Prophet 6 isn’t amongst the first 6 (yet?) – maybe because it was announced later then others?
