Video Original Ableton Wavetable Preset “Numbers” on Push 2

A quick post to share a video of a new original preset that’s in progress on the most amazing @Ableton #Wavetable#synth. This one is inspired by Kraftwerk and it called “Numbers” 😀. #SaturdayNightSoundDesign.

This was made entirely with Push 2 without using a mouse. As I’m using Push I incorporate the touch strip, velocity and pressure into this sound.

In a related note I’m slowly working my way towards a whole pack of Wavetable presets so subscribe to be notified of my progress along with other Modulate This! posts.

New Microsoft Surface Announcements Including Surface Laptop, Pro, Neo, and Duo + My Journey with Surface for Music Production and Performance So Far

My Journey So Far with Surface

I’m a big fan of design of Microsoft Surface computers and have a Surface Laptop and Surface Pro 4 that I use for every day computing and for music applications like Ableton Live and virtual synthesizers. I literally have trouble using computers that don’t support touch displays and pen – haha.

Using a Surface Pro 4 and Pen to Manipulate Ableton Wavetable

Here are just a few videos where I took advantage of the pen in synthesis.

I also use my Surface Laptop for my live Ableton Performances like this one.

Of course while the devices are super light and the designs are quite fantastic as a live musician we can always use more oomph and connectivity. So I was excited to hear that Microsoft held an event today announcing the new Microsoft Surface line updates plus a look into products they will be releasing all the way out to the holiday season of 2020.

Official Product Videos

There are some great new updates coming to the line. Here are the official product videos.

Surface Laptop 3

Yah, removable hard drive!

Make a more powerful statement with new Surface Laptop 3. Sleek and light, it travels with ease and delivers improved speed and performance, all-day battery life, and outstanding graphics. Now in two sizes and two elegant keyboard finishes. Fuel your ideas with Surface Laptop 3.

Surface Pro 7

At the office, at home or en route, new Surface Pro 7 adapts to the way you work with laptop-to-tablet versatility.

The Pen stores securely and recharges in the luxurious, Alcantara® covered keyboard, complete with backlit keys and large multi-touch glass trackpad.

Ok, now for some very new designs starting with the Surface Neo. I see some incredible potential for electronic and multimedia creation and performance.

Sound Design Project: Honored to be a Contributor to The Round Wavetable Pack

roundwaveloop.gif

I’m psyched and honored to be a part of this sound design project for the amazing new Ableton Wavetable Synth – The Round Wavetable Pack. AfroDJMac who curated this project had this to say about it…

Ableton Live 10 comes with a beast of a new synthesizer, Wavetable. Wavetable, as expected, uses wavetable synthesis to produce a near endless potential of sounds. To celebrate this new instrument, I’ve enlisted the help of 6 talented producers and sound designers. I ask them to send along a few presets using Wavetable, in any genre or style they wished. The result is 32 Wavetable and Instrument Rack presets that showcase the depth and power of Wavetable, as well as some of the other new devices in Ableton Live 10.

Contributors to this pack are:

  1. AfroDJMac – http://www.afrodjmac.com
  2. Isaac Cotec –  https://subaqueousmusic.com
  3. Thomas Glendinning – https://elphnt.co.za/
  4. Mark Mosher – https://ModulateThis.com
  5. pAtches – https://patches.zone
  6. Josh Spoon – http://www.theproducerskitchen.com/
  7. Mark Towers – https://marktowers.net/

Here is a video overview of the pack by AfroDJMac.

Here is a video of early work on one of my presets “Dark Star” that made into this Live Pack.

A big thanks to AfroDJMac for curating all this!
