My Gift to You

What's the use of making music if no one hears it?

Well of course it's fun to do, but since I was in the past involved in the music industry, (in a very small way I might add) everytime I make something half decent that thought of sending demos out to labels comes back. In the real world, I've long lost the stamina of doing such things, vinyl is dead (ok its not but that's another debate) and mp3 labels are ten a penny.

So back to the point, here's a track I made quite some time ago and posted on soundcloud, a few people listened and there were a couple of nice comments. So i figured I'd post it here and enable downloads on it.

So have a listen, if you like it download the wav file and put it on a cd or make an mp3 from it, whatever you like (unless you are making money from it of course)

A close up look at the new Korg MS-20 Mini

I got fed up with the waiting times and managed to pick up an MS-20 Mini from Japan, so I figured I'd run through some of the things that haven't yet been mentioned in previous videos. Also I show how to make a cheap V-Trig to S-trig converter so that you can use normal gates to trigger the Mini. Finally a trick to use a standard cv/gate sequencer with the Mini with something unexpected as the converter!

Overall I'm very pleased with the unit, the build isn't as solid as the original but the keybed is better for sure. Still at this price there's really nothing to grumble about.

So here's the pics of the partial teardown I did, doesn't seem to be any magic points marked on the silkscreen like on the monotron/tribe but it's always possible there is something on the component side, i'll let someone else discover that ;)

Its now even easier to get modules

Now you can order modules at these great stores. Of course you can still buy them direct from us here and we will still have a pre-order waiting list for the new modules when they come. So you can still be amongst the first to get them before they hit the shops.
