M4SONIC shot to fame through Youtube, when he began uploading videos of his out-of-this world performances with the Novation Launchpad. In fact, many of his compositions actually feature more than one Launchpad, where he uses one hand to trigger drum clips and the other to play melodic riffs.
After racking up millions of views, M4SONIC's videos catapulted him into the limelight and he's now getting booked to play sell-out gigs, as well as releasing his own tracks.
For this competition, M4SONIC (in association with Novation) is giving you the chance to remix his track, Virus, using the FREE Novation Launchpad App. Two winners will each bag a Launchpad S and Launch Control combo, but that's not all, as one of these winners will also be crowned the overall champion and get a 1 hour masterclass with M4SONIC!
Roland have been teasing their new range of AIRA products for the last month and now we're finally allowed to reveal what they are! What's more is that a selection of Absolute Music staff were invited to a special, super-secret demo of the new AIRA range before the announcement, where we got to see, hear and play with them. Now that's what you call a perk of the job!
In this article, we'll talk about the brand new AIRA TR-8, which brings together Roland's classic TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines in one modern design. We'll let you know about its features, as well as what we thought of it and how it sounds.
It's finally here! Roland have re-introduced their iconic TB-303 bass module and what's more, some of us at Absolute Music got to hear and play with it before the official announcement! Unfortunately for you guys, we've been bound by a strict contract that has forbidden us from sharing our knowledge with our customers and many of our colleagues... until now! As Roland have now released full details to the world, we're also free to share our thoughts with you (something that we've been bursting to do for a long time)!
In this article, we'll describe exactly what the Touch Bassline TB-3 is, what features it offers and exactly what we thought of it. Excited? You should be!
*** UPDATE: I ended up buying one in the end! Read the updated end of my review to find out what I now think of the TB-3 as an owner of one! ***
After all those teases, we finally know what the Airas are! In fact, we have a confession to make... some of us have known for a while and have even got to hear and play them! Unfortunately for the rest of us, those people were bound by a strict contract that meant that they had to keep schtum until the official announcement... but that's now here!
So, the Aira line-up consists of the TR-8, which brings together the sounds of the TR-808 and TR-909 rhythm machines in one easy-to-use unit; the TB-3, which gives you the classic sound of the Roland TB-303 bass synth; the VT-3, which is a compact vocal transformer for adding electronic effects to your voice in realtime and finally; the System-1, which can be loaded with your choice of soft-synth sounds in order to model a selection of classic Roland instruments (including the SH-101), as well as featuring its own, unique synth engine.
