Ableton Loop Create: Free online music summit event on 26 and 27 June 2021

Ableton is making the best out of the pandemic situation by spinning off its yearly Loop event into a new online event called Loop Create. Taking place on June 26 and 27 2021, Loop Create will be about celebrating and learning about music. The schedule offers a line-up of musicians, artists, technologists, and intermediaries from the audio and music sector. Ableton would like to bring these people together on these two days and connect viewers with creators. A very nice goal, and admission is free. Ableton Loop Create Loop Create is the further development of the well-known musical event Loop, hosted by the hardware and software company Ableton. The event has the motto Creativity and Community. As online content such as live streaming, video casting, and podcasting has become ubiquitous, even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ableton is taking advantage to recreate some of Loop’s magic virtually. Loop Create will connect interested viewers with the acts on the virtual stages of the multimedia show. It will show how musicians make music (workshops), perform live, and share insights from the music scene in question and answer sessions in which the community can participate (likely via chat). Ableton promises a large and diverse lineup of people that will do the pre-pandemic Loop events justice. Ableton Loop Create will take place as an online event on June 26th and 27th, 2021. You can register for the event online from 26 May, 2021. Participation is free of charge. You can also sign up for a newsletter on the Loop Blog website to stay informed.

Multiphonics CV-1: A Eurorack style virtual modular from AAS

Applied Acoustics is having a go at modular with Multiphonics CV-1 incorporating acoustic modelling technology with a clean and versatile approach. Multiphonics CV-1 Kicking off with 35 modules Multiphonics CV-1 covers a lot more than just the basics. While the synthesizer building blocks are present in the VCO, VCA, envelopes and filters there are a lot of utility and processing modules that leans more towards experimentation and sound design than merely making beeps and boops. The interface is simple and clear which is very important in my view. The layout is similar to Cherry Audio’s Voltage Modular with the browser on the left and a Toolbar running along the top but the styling of the modules seems much easier on the eye. The Toobar gives you the connection to your DAW, the MIDI control and sound destinations. On the right is an Effects and Setting bar and at the bottom is a little virtual keyboard that probably connects to something. Multiphonics can run as a VST plugin within your DAW and so synchronisation shouldn’t be a problem. They include a Master Clock module to take care of how it responds to the DAW tempo. There’s also a Macros module for simplifying MIDI control and making big changes on a single knob. MIDI is also available via a Keyboard module that offers gate, pitch and modulation conversion. To get you started they’ve pulled in a bunch of patch makers and sound designers to put together a library of patches to show off what Multiphonics can do. They’ve also filmed a series of tutorials to really get under the skin of what modular is about and how to start finding your way…

Raffle: Win a Harley Benton G212A-FR cabinet worth €298!

Friends of digitally modelled guitar tone won’t want to miss out on this competition, with the chance to win a Harley Benton G212A-FR full range active cabinet worth €298. Full Range, Flat Response So what’s an FRFR cab, anyway? These ultra-neutral guitar cabinets reproduce 1:1 the signal you’ve painstakingly crafted in your modelling amp or multi-fx pedal, with no colouration. They’re designed to be completely linear and only give back the tone that goes in. Create your ideal guitar tone in your Kemper Profiler, Line 6 Helix or Headrush board, then send that signal directly to PA or recording input. The listener will hear exactly the tone you intended. In many scenarios, though, you’ll want to have your own cabinet to reproduce the sound on stage or in your rehearsal space – that’s where FRFR cabs come in. Raffle: Harley Benton G212A-FR We are giving away one G212A-FR active FRFR combo by Harley Benton, worth 298 Euros! It delivers stereo sound via two 12″ speakers and 2x 1″ high frequency drivers. With an output of 2x 100 watts RMS at 8 ohms, you won’t run out of horsepower anytime soon. This cab also has balanced XLR L/R outputs and can be tilted as a floor monitor, making it ideal for tight stage situations. Harley Benton’s G212-A FR Active Cabinet Terms and Conditions of Entry All you have to do to take part is enter one comment under this post, on our Instagram post or on the Facebook post announcing this raffle. Participation is – of course – free of charge. The minimum age for participation is 14 years. Only one entry is allowed – attempted multiple entries per competition will…
