  • sE Electronics News: From X-Factor to Sugababes with sE

    Posted on August 27, 2010 by Steve_sE

    Latest artist endorsee news piece from sE Electronics:

    From X-Factor to Sugababes with sE

    Summary: Producer and songwriter Gareth Young prefers the sound of his sE mics over his far more expensive options to record some of the biggest vocalists out there…

    Sugababes, All Saints, Ronan Keating, you name them, the chances are Gareth Young has worked with them. Gareth has been recording a producing since the tender age of 15 and has certainly carved out a successful career since then…

  • Novation Launchpad - Amber edition

    Posted on August 25, 2010 by Absolute Music

    There is an absolutely amazing deal to be had from Novation with their Launchpad.

    For only £99 you can secure yourself one - saving you £50 off the list price.

    Whats the catch? Here's the info from Novation themselves:

    A small number of Novation's Launchpads are available to buy at a discounted price, as they have slightly different LEDs. This results in tiny divergences in colour from other production Launchpads (the amber can seem very slightly more 'yellow' or 'orange').

  • ROLAND OCTAPAD SPD-30 REVIEW

    Posted on August 25, 2010 by Absolute Music

    This review kindly written by Tony Long. You can read more reviews like this, along with Tony's productions at his personal site -> Tony Long Muic

    INTRODUCTION TO THE Roland SPD-30 Octapad

    The SPD-30 Octapad is the latest digital percussion multi-pad from Roland using the most up-to-date triggering technology and sounds. It has come a very long way since the first Octapad - the Pad-8 introduced in 1985 as a MIDI percussion controller. In 1989 they introduced the second model - the Pad-80 Octapad II which had a larger memory that could store up to 64 different patches with 64 patches on a Roland M-256E memory card. Further improvements to the MIDI specification included the control of modulation, pitch bend and aftertouch using a foot pedal. They then went on to release their SPD range which were very similar to the Octapads but had on board sounds and effects.

  • AKAI MINIAK REVIEW

    Posted on August 12, 2010 by Absolute Music

    This review kindly written by Paul Syers

    If you ever wondered what the offspring of the Sequential Circuits SixTrak and an alien craft from the original 1953 version of War of the Worlds would be doing today, and let's face it who hasn't, then wonder no longer - To see the MiniAk glowing blue and orange in the dark with it's gooseneck vocoder mic stretching out for you is to know that it all worked out just fine. And one could do worse in terms of potential parents if one were an analogue modelling synth looking to cover a range of sounds from the 50's through to the now and beyond.

  • ROLAND GAIA SH-01 REVIEW

    Posted on August 12, 2010 by Absolute Music

    This review kindly written by Tony Long. You can read more reviews like this, along with Tony's productions at his personal site -> Tony Long Music

    The GAIA SH-01 - another little gem from Roland. What is it? - Well the GAIA reminds me a little of a Jupiter 8 but looking so much "2010". In essence it is a virtual analogue synth or rather three analogue synths in one. Roland have made a great decision on Colour. I don't wish to sound like a girl, but it is amazing how many times you see Artists who have products made especially in white. Why? - Because they look so good on stage. Access did it with their "Limited Edition" Virus.
