(Modulate This) Elektron Elektron Digitone Sound Design

Ess, Father of the Elektron Digitone, is Streaming Epic Videos on Twitch. Watch the Recordings.

Digitone is my favorite Elektron synth. This being the case, I was quite excited to find that Elektron developer Ess Mattisson started streaming on Twitch. According to his Elektronauts profile he is “on the Applied Design team at Elektron, where I conjure synths and push pixels”. So as you might imagine this is some great content from someone directly involved with the creation of this awesome synth.

I’ve embedded the recordings in this post, so grab some coffee or a cocktail, sit back, and enjoy his first two epic videos related to FM synthesis and Digitone.

“Let’s Learn Some FM”

In this first video which is just over an hour, he offers a free form intro to FM synthesis – after some FM jams while he wait’s for his coffee to be ready.

“Let’s Dive Into the Digitone”

This video is just over 2 hours and starts with a jam (again while waiting for coffee) followed by a free form dive into the Digitone with some deconstruction of original sounds and patterns 🎆.

Halo 3 Launches + Video of Composer Marty O’Donnell Talking About Halo 3 Score

Halo3a_3

I was just flipping through the channels and saw G4’s Halo 3 Countdown Launch which offered live coverage of the product launch in New York city. Master chief just handed the first copy to someone who’d been standing in line for a very long time – so it looks like Halo 3 has officially launched.

The composer of the music for Halo 3 is Marty O’Donnell. I found some  interesting videos containing interviews where he discusses his work on the project. I’ve embed them below. You can also see them at http://www.gamevideos.com/video/id/11005. Click the "MENU" on the player to see related videos.

I’ll pick up my copy of the game in the morning, so if any readers want to get together, email me and we can swap gametags.
